Mona Eltahawy was recently arrested for spray-painting a billboard she objected to. She also sprayed a person who was trying to defend the billboard. Mona Eltahawy claims her protest was non-violent.
LOL, non-violent protest, that's the funniest thing I have seen in a while. Merely because you don't hit someone with your fists it does not mean the attack is not violent. Spraying someone with noxious paint is not extreme similar to throwing sulphuric acid in the victim's face but it is nevertheless a violent attack, likely to cause harm to eyes and skin. Paint can easily irritate the skin and eyes. People should have the right to free expression but that should not give people to right to spray over or silence the voices of others. Mona Eltahawy should buy her own billboard space if she has something to say, otherwise she will naturally face criminal damage or vandalism charges.
I am a staunch atheist therefore I value criticism of Islam and other religions. All religions are savage, barbaric, anti-intellectual. The concept of God or Gods is utter nonsense.
