But if you really wanna know what’s “extreme” (you don’t), I’ll have you know that it is pretty “extreme” to take a religious tradition with over 14 centuries of legal, philosophical, jurisprudential, exegetical, political, and societal thought, that has spread to just about every continent, that has come in contact with probably the majority of the world’s contemporary cultures, that has over a billion adherents in the world, that has at least five major schools of law, and that has an extraordinary capacity to be adaptable to space and time, and to reduce that tradition in its vast richness to one monolithic understanding of one arbitrary, useless issue. And while you’re at it, you can take your eurocentric understanding of what is “normal” behavior and shove it because if your primary concern with Islam is supposedly not being able to shake someone’s hand, your concern isn’t at all with the faith but with Otherizing and vilifying its adherents as ignorant followers of a religion that you, in your ignorance, have labeled as too extreme because it seemingly doesn’t conform to what you deem acceptable.
"If they destroy your Mosques raise the call to prayer from our Churches."
-Bishop of Gaza, Father Manuel.
If you’re a Muslim and you choose to play dumb when it comes to ISIS and remain silent, then I will remind you of the same things you people have been saying in regards to Palestine and Israel. If you’re silent in times of injustice and oppression, then you have taken the side of the oppressor. Stop turning a blind eye, and stand up to this cancer that’s plaguing our region.
Don't you think Islam is too "extreme" that you can't even shake hands with the opposite gender?
Doctors and medics mourn the loss of their fellow medic, 32 year old Mohammad Matar, who was targeted by Israeli shelling while performing his duty in helping the injured in Khan Yunis, Gaza.
It’s important to know that many of these medics and doctors have not been paid in months especially with the current Israeli genocide in Gaza. Many of the medics are volunteers and are operating in inhumane conditions, at times working 20 hour shifts to provide immediate care to the overwhelming number of injuries caused by Israel’s constant deliberate and indiscriminate rocket fire on civilians.
