The critics of our free speech event in Garland, Texas should take careful note of this. The Qur’an says that Jesus was neither killed nor crucified (4:157). The cross is offensive to Muslims as a falsehood and an implicit claim that Allah would allow one of his prophets to suffer such a humiliating death. So she must have provoked the Muslim boy by wearing it, right? It’s her fault she got punched. Next time she should avoid giving offense to Muslims.
That’s what they’re saying about our event — that we provoked the jihadis. If that is so, then so also did this girl provoke the Muslim who punched her.
“Girl, 12, beaten by classmate, for wearing crucifix – update,” ANSA, May 15, 2015:
(ANSA) Terni, May 15 – A schoolboy of African origin attacked a 12-year-old-girl at a school in central Italy because she was wearing a crucifix on a neck chain, police said Friday.
The boy punched the girl violently in the back at the entrance to a middle school in the town of Terni on Thursday and the girl’s mother caught the boy, who subsequently told Carabinieri paramilitary police he attacked the girl because she was wearing a crucifix, police sources said.
The boy, who first attended the school some three weeks ago, had bullied the girl over the past four days, insulting her and picking on her in other ways all because she was wearing the crucifix, the sources said.
Nevertheless police stopped short of charging the boy with any offense since he is a minor, the sources said.
