When an anti-Muslim demonstrator stationed herself outside the Islamic Center of Ann Arbor IN Michigan last week, a member of the congregation decided to counter the woman’s hateful message directly. The demonstrator’s sign read, “I serve a risen savior Jesus Christ. Muhammad is dead.” Congregation member Dr. Hamad Houwari responded with his own message: “Muhammad and Jesus = Love not hate.”
“Hundreds of cars were stopping in support,” Houwari told The Arab American News. “Christians were telling her she doesn’t represent them. Some of people told her, ‘Shame on you.’ I didn’t mean to insult her. I just wanted to show the contrast between the two sides.
