  1. Paul,
    Interesting post. Yes, of course the picture is disturbing, because it legitimizes murder through the dehumanization of the target group. This desensitizes people to the suffering and persecution of others. These things are always disturbing to Muslims who truly understand their religion since the Qur’an makes clear:

    “Whoever kills an innocent human being, it shall be as if he has killed all mankind, and whosoever saves the life of one, it shall be as if he saved the life of all mankind.” Qur’an 5:32

    One cannot redefine what or who is a person/people or not. Prophet Muhammad (sws) taught us that all humans are the same in that they have a soul created by the same One God.

    Qais ibn Sa’d reported: A funeral passed by the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, and he stood up. It was said to him, “It is a Jew.” The Prophet said, “Was he not a soul?” ~ Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī 1250, Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 961

    Therefore, all creation, especially including all life, should be highly respected as it is from the gifts and blessings of our Lord, Almighty God Allah.

    • Paul,
      If you asking about the comparison of Abortionists to the Nazi’s, then the picture could be considered to be disturbing based on Strauss’s Reductio ad Hitlerum, or Godwin’s Law.

      As I alluded to in my above comment, there are many arguments to be made against the killing of innocents (babies or otherwise) without resorting to a fallacy of irrelevance, or guilt by association.

      Thanks for the post!


  2. What about this…


  3. Trey,
    I understand your point. As a Muslim I believe the killing of any innocent is disturbing. But instead of always pointing your finger at Islam, you might also take some time to look at the disturbing history of Christianity as well:

    “How many people have died in the name of Christ, Christianity and Catholicism?


  4. lets keep the discussion on topic Islamophobes.


  5. Some found it disturbing at first glance, not realising the context.
