An anti-Muslim billboard disparaging the Prophet Muhammad that can be seen from the southbound lanes of I-465 on the east side is drawing concern from local Muslims.
Now, Islamic leaders in Indianapolis are challenging those responsible for what they say are offensive and untrue statements to stand by their words, shed their anonymity and explain their motivations.
"It is a horrible billboard. I'm outraged by it, but saddened at the same time ... and I would like to know who is behind it," said Rima Shahid, executive director of the Muslim Alliance of Indiana. "It seems very cowardly to me. If you have some kind of stance, you should want to stand up next to your statement. I didn't think there was any room for hate in our city. This billboard tells me otherwise.
Hmmm. So "outrage" and "saddened by it," then "offended" and "it's cowardly," with heaping spoonfuls of "it's hateful." Interesting. One thing wasn't called out. Bet you spotted it. Here, lemme help: what on the billboard is inaccurate?
It's rather like when people say "OMG, I don't know WHERE TO START WITH THIS!" screamed several octaves above their normal voice, as they flutter about in rages. While never actually addressing whatever problem they claim to have. The truth is "offensive" because it's hard to counter. Muhammad was, to put it lightly, a douche monkey. His favorite wife was a child. He advocated domestic violence against the ladyfolk. Actually, he advocated violence toward a lot of people. Muhammad was not saintly like the founder of Christianity. Less water into wine, more enemies into kabobs. Less turning the other cheek, more turning cheeks black and blue. Less walking on water, more walking over skulls of his foes. You're getting the picture, surely.
Because Islamists cannot defend the actions or words of Muhammad, they get hot and bothered when the truth is laid bare. Especially when it's laid bare in glorious fashion ala a billboard. I'm waiting for a dutiful jihadist to peaceful blow it up using nothing but ball bearings strapped to his chest. NO, that's not a call to action. It's a joke about Islam's clear lack of peaceful qualities.
