Within the past week alone there has been an atrocious wave of attacks from Islamic extremists. Every time an attack occurs from Islamic Extremists, pacifist “moderate” Muslims have predictable responses:
This has nothing to do with Islam. They’re not real Muslims. They just claim to be.
Islam is a religion of peace
1.7 Billion Muslims aren’t terrorists, don’t judge all of Muslim population with the actions of a few. (#notallMuslims)

Amos Yee is a Youtuber who uses satire and vulgarity to promote freedom of speech. He recently made a video where he points out the misogyny/violence in the Quran then desecrates it. By desecrate, I mean he rips out pages from the Quran and dry humps it.
Muslim Youtubers Adam Saleh and Karim from AreweKukunow saw this video, and have rallied Muslims to report Amos Yee to Youtube for “racism.”
This caused a wave of Muslims to take notice of atheist debunks of Islam on Youtube, and brand it as “hate speech.”
Recently there was an article by MuftiNews stating how Amos Yee has converted to Islam and became a Mufti. A Mufti is a Muslim legal expert who is empowered to give rulings on religious matters. The same website also stated how Mufti Amos had plans on creating an Islamic Theme Park. Click for more!

“The shackles of Ms. Clairol… you are a slave to the cosmetics industry… a prisoner of Hollywood’s concept of beauty… if you don’t’ fit their standards you are nothing! Allah subhanawata’ala gives you freedom from all of that.”
“A woman is like a piece of candy – she must be covered to not let filth pollute her.”
“A man is like a stone, if you drop the stone in mud, you can wash it clean; however, a woman is like a piece of silk, if you drop it in mud it is forever soiled.”
“Your husband is like your father except you bear children with him.”
“A woman needs “ta’deeb” (discipline) which is why Allah gave men the right to hit her, she is in her nature rebellious; therefore, the man who hits his wife honors her by keeping her “ala al sirat al mustaqueem” (on the righteous/straight path).
Yes, I was well versed in this rhetoric; it was instilled in me as a young girl. I fell for it too. Click to keep reading!
