Here we go again. Pamela Geller is at her best one more time, this time taking her hate campaign to Chicago’s CTA buses. I agree with her in that “In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man.” The point of contention is about who here is civilized? After millions of years of evolution is this how we define civilization? Rather than constructive dialog about our disagreements we simply splash one line hate messages?
Talking about “civilized”, I belong to the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. We also launched a campaign in several cities around the globe – our message was “Love for all and Hatred for none”. Geller and I definitely have different standards to define evolved behavior, and it is clear which one is civilized. Therefore, I invite all Americans to join our campaign of love, and reject her campaign of hate.
