Social media is a great way to promote yourself… or land yourself in a shitload of trouble. Muslims, including San Francisco State University student Mohammad Ham-Mad, generally choose the latter of those options. Hammad is of Palestinian descent and is the president of SFSU’s Muslim Student Association. He also hates Jews and is probably the only straight man who has a Tumblr account. It was that Tumblr account that landed him in a lot of hot water.
Despite his position as the leader of the Muslim Student Association and his recognition on campus as an Islamic leader, Hammad decided it would be best to be honest about his religion and its teachings instead of lying like most other Muslims do. On Tumblr, he posted an image of himself holding a knife with the caption, “I seriously can not get over how much I love this blade. It is the sharpest thing I own and cuts through everything like butter and just holding it makes me want to stab an Israeli soldier.” Yep, religion of peace getting stabby again, because impaling people is totally peaceful.
When the post was discovered, numerous Jewish advocacy groups demanded action be taken against Hammad. It is unknown whether or not this actually happened. Of course, there was no outcry or negativity from Muslims – though they may not say they agree with Hammad’s message, they do, but they know it’s best to keep their mouths shut. Hopefully Hammad finds the abandoned gayporn4muhammad Tumblr (NSFW) and finds enjoyment in it.
