MWU gets hijacked!

Ladies and Gentlemen

Salaam alaikum and alhamdulillah,

I am usually a mature person who does not pick on people when they are down. If a person has a different opinion than my own, I usually let them speak their mind. I may or may not offer my own opinion and that usually depends on how I am feeling at the moment. I do not condone the censorship of others (unless they enter my blog world where I rule with an iron fist), even if they say the most hateful things about a particular group of people because freedom means tolerance. Even if that means tolerance for the things that you don't like or can not change due to the laws or social rules of the governing society.

So...why can't I stop laughing?

If you ever plan on visiting MuslimWakeUp.com, please go now. They have been...how shall I say...silenced. Some very spunky hackers know as Islamic 0x Challenge Brigade have brought down the website and renamed it MurtadWakeUp.com. Apparently we are not the only ones who are tired of some of the ideas that have been flowing from that corner of the web. We never thought of breaking in and shutting them down and I don't condone that but...the giggles keep coming up. I can't help it. The hackers have some requests which follows...

Stop slandering the mujahideen (I do get tired of people lumping terrorists with men who are just trying to defend their families. Yes, there is a difference.)

Stop letting chief pornographer Mohja Kahf speak about Islam and stop letting her publish her fantasies online (thankfully, I stopped visiting the website before the whole "Sex and the Umma" stuff started.)

Stop using the names of the Prophet (saws), his family and the Sahaba (ra) in those stories (hey, there are other names they can use that are not the names of the revered people of Islam.)

Stop slandering scholars of Islam (disagreeing with the scholars is one thing, putting them in humiliating erotic stories or complaining about them behind their backs on a website instead of addressing them face to face is another.)

Stop anti-hijab articles (Hear, hear! They talk more about how much they hate hijab as much as some Muslims go on and on it about all day. The umma has bigger problems than headgear.)

There are optional requests but please take a gander for yourself before they fix the problem.

Print out the message as a keep sake item.

(Giggle)

Yeah, I'm bad.

Salaams

I'm about 40% partial to the idea that the hackers aren't Muslims, but just people messing with minds. I could be wrong though. Allahu 'Alim. If it's a few hours or a day, well, Alhamdulillah.

As-Salaamu 'alaikum

Hmmm ... I'm pretty sure the hackers are Muslims. I commented on this here.
