I’m Really Not a Muslim

I’m Really Not a Muslim

 

It’s not that I am a good Jew it’s just that I am not a Christian.

What I’m really not is a Muslim.

 

If a segment of the Jews raped children,

Crucified women

And decapitated journalists

I would become an apostate,

I would leave that religion as fast as Speedy Rabbit.

 

How can people lay their prayer rugs down

Five times a day and still kill innocents?

 

What kind of father straps his son to dynamite?

What kind of President says that Muslims

Are peace loving people

And the Koran is a gentle book?

 

There are passages in everyone’s life that are gentle.

Some pages in the Koran are gentle.

Not enough.

 

A Moslem terrorist should be excised from his faith.

A lying President should be impeached from office.

 

Healing starts with the courage to assign blame.
