A Muslim Woman Speaks Out Against the Libyan Protest

Nancy Shehata, one of Patheos’ Muslim bloggers, has a response to the bloodshed in Libya. I don’t have anything to add; it’s just nice to see a sane reaction to the pointless violence.

I am so god damned tired of this. Sorry, I just can’t find any literary way to put that. I am so god damned tired of Muslims allowing themselves to be manipulated by a god damned low-budget stupid YOUTUBE VIDEO. This low-rent video was put together by a few bigoted individuals who should have been ignored. Instead, they have found fame in infamy. Their worthless little film was used by “radical Muslims” to pull the strings of ignorant puppets, to whip up a crowd into a frenzied mob, to incite people to murder. I am shocked but not surprised by the film. I am horrified and really, really pissed off at my Muslim brothers.

I want to take each person who stood screaming outside of those embassies and shake them. What are you doing? Why are you protesting against the entire United States, symbolized by the embassy, for the actions of a few? Actions that were not known about, were not supported, were not endorsed by the US government or by the vast majority of Americans. Why are you standing out there screaming, shaking your fists, scrawling “Allahu Akbar” on the walls, burning, tearing, destroying? Why are you so concerned with one little video? Don’t you have something more important to do?
