Now it’s time for a Muslim Christmas sing along: *Jingle bells, killing is swell, Ahmed laid a bomb. Arabs hate the West Wall gate and Muhammad likes them young.*
Most Muslims don’t celebrate Christmas in any capacity. Those Western values (and holidays) should never be celebrated. Even by Muslims residing in the West. “Moderate Muslims” made this clear when they threatened one of their own with the gift of being beheaded. Happy Hanukkah.
Muslim boxer, Amir Khan, is receiving death threats after posting the following video:
According to Yahoo’s Stephanie Soteriou, one person replied, “I promise to God I want to kill you and your family, Amir.”
Another responded, “This guy suppose to be a role model for the younger Muslims. His head needs a wobble.”
There are thousands of comments on the Instagram post. Here’s the good news: a lot of comments against Kahn are challenged by other commenters. So there appears to be active discussion on what constitutes a “good Muslim” and what doesn’t. Not my words, go read a sampling of the comments yourself.
Amir Kahn is simply embracing Western values. A lot of people who celebrate Christmas aren’t Christian. Kahn is no different. Yet look at all the controversy the posting of a Christmas tree caused in the online Muslim community? Guess the conversation needs to still be had.
