Muslim Attacks Atheist in Pennsylvania over "Zombie Muhammad" Costume

No one would blame a Muslim for being offended at a "Zombie Muhammad" costume, just as no one would blame a Catholic for being offended at a "Zombie Pope" costume. But we do object to people becoming physically violent over their disagreements. In this case, a Muslim attempted to choke an atheist who was mocking Muhammad. Why would the Muslim get violent? Because Islam promotes violence towards people who mock Islam.

Pennsylvania--Tuesday, an Atheist wearing a “Zombie Muhammad” costume while marching in a local Pennsylvania Halloween parade was attacked by a Muslim.

According to reports, the Parading Atheists of Central Pennsylvania (PACP) were marching in a Halloween parade in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania,when a Muslim stormed out of the hometown crowd to assault one of the marching atheists who happened to be wearing a Zombie Muhammad costume.

The atheist in the Zombie Muhammad costume was proclaiming that he was the Prophet Muhammad, risen from the dead. Apparently the words and costume offended a Muslim man, who came out of the audience and began to follow and harass the atheist dressed as Zombie Muhammad before actually choking the atheist.

Subsequently, a police report was filed, and charges in the matter are pending. (Read more.)

The video footage isn't great, since it was recorded at night, but here it is:

The muslim who attacked is very lucky that the zombie muhammed dude was not Terry Jones. Terry is not too coward to own a gun and isn't too afraid to put a bullet through a terrorist's brain and probably that's why he owns one. What these idiot atheists need to understand is that Islam is a real threat to America and Europe and not a joke like Mormonism, Jehova's witness etc. Islam claims to be both a religion and a military ideology + political movement. Arm yourself with swords, knives and bombs before you decide to make fun of Muhammed!

Odd story, considering that muslims are such reasonable, peaceful, gentle people.

Must have been a jew parading around as a muslim.

i totally agree with Pyem Ministry.The urban areas of my country is much secularized but even though no one even dare to criticize islam in fear of losing their lives.So if islam really grows in the west,definitely westerners need to lead subjeguted prisoner type lives like we do

Wow,what an incident,I wonder if his fellow atheists will defend him,I know atheists like Michel Onfray,Richard Dawkings,Sam Harris,Pat Condell,Christopher Hitchens,the late Oriana Fallaci,Ayan Hirsi Ali,would defend him 100%.

I noticed Ehtesham Gulam has heard David's debate with Nadir Ahmed.

He commented 2X,I noticed it because he was using his youtube name of "answeringchristians".

I was surprised because he said he would no longer have anything to do with David,then why listen to his debate?

I am glad he heard the debate.

My Response:
I will not live like a subjugated prisoner in the west, whether Islam grows or not. Muslims still need the gospel and the fact someone will lose their life shouldn't keep us from preaching it.
