The Islamic Society of Greater Kansas City will be holding a funeral for Nadir Soofi, one of the two gunmen who was killed while attacking a Muhammad Cartoon Contest.
According to PJ Media, the same group launched a petition calling for Barack Obama to make insulting Islam illegal. This was back in 2012 after the terrorist attack in Benghazi – the attack Obama blamed a video about Muhammad for.
The petition says that,
“We understand the First Amendment (Amendment I) to the United States Constitution is part of the Bill of Rights and, as such, prohibits the making of any law respecting an establishment of religion, impeding the free exercise of religion, abridging the freedom of speech, infringing on the freedom of the press, etc., but when the allowance of “free” speech incites violence it should be banned.
The film behind the violence that is occurring in part of the Muslim world, “The Innocence of Muslims”, although it may be amateurish, its contents are very disturbing and insulting to the religion and has ignited an already volatile part of the world. The film is repulsive to the sensibilities of Muslims and offends the religion of Islam in multiple ways; by denigrating the seriousness of Islam, our Prophet and the Muslims in general. We believe that it would be in everyone’s interest to ban such actions from reoccurring.”
Maybe it's fitting that a Islamic group that opposes the right to free speech will hold a funeral for someone who died trying to take away that very that very right.
