The ‘COEXIST’ signs and bumper stickers with the letters in the shape of religious symbols is the manifestation of an attempt by godless leftists and stealth jihadists to portray religious tolerance and equality. They’re not offensive to anyone, right? Well, I find them offensive but probably for different reasons than the unidentified attackers who had a problem with an artist who painted the sign on a wall in Paris.
It seems like something one would be hard pressed to disagree with: the word “coexist,” written on a wall using a Muslim crescent as the letter “C,” a Star of David as the letter “X,” and a Christian cross as a “T.”
But in Paris, this particular iteration of the popular inscription—here, created by the street artist Combo, who also pasted a life-size photo of himself next to it—didn’t go down well with everybody. Le Monde reports that four young people asked the artist to remove it last weekend, and beat him up severely when he refused to do so.
Combo ended up with a dislocated shoulder and many bruises.
The attack is characteristic of the inter-religious tensions that plague France and have been exacerbated by the Charlie Hebdo tragedy (see 12 Killed at Magazine Previously Attacked for Satirical Cartoons). Combo declined to discuss the identity of his assailants. “It would only add fuel to the fire,” he told the French newspaper.
The visual metaphor of Muslims attacking an artist for espousing the ideal of religious tolerance and equality is laughably blatant. It’s rather difficult to find a better example to make the point. The supposed ideal of religious equality and tolerance is a ruse, bait to get leftists and useful idiots to help stealth jihadists push their agenda.
It’s amazing the lengths these ‘Coexisties’ will go to refuse the obvious. They’re like sheep dressing in meat suits. See if you can spot the ‘Coexistie’ and jihadists in this photo:
As the man in the middle proudly displays his interfaith stole, an ideal he likely aspires to even when no one is around, the man on the right in that photo expresses something else entirely. Specifically, Rateb al-Nabulsi would rather see all the Jews pushed into the sea.
Not very tolerant now, is it? This stole shows exactly what al-Nabulsi thinks of ‘COEXIST’:
