Happy Eid al-Fitr!

Eid al-Fitr

The Islamic holy month of Ramadan draws to a close.  Muslims have spent the month fasting, praying, and giving alms to the needy.  The month culminates in Eid al-Fitr, three days of celebration–or, as I like to call it, the Muslim version of Christmas.

For those who celebrate Eid, please do enjoy yourselves.  You deserve it.

But, remember: the Islamophobes don’t take Ramadan or Eid off.  They continue doing what they do so well: demonizing the Muslim community and Islamic faith.  That’s why you need to support our work here at LoonWatch.  Please make sure to contribute to LoonWatch’s IndieGoGo campaign.  We’ve raised over $4,000, which is a great start.  There are only 28 days left of our campaign, so please do contribute now–and tell all your family and friends to do the same.

Our initial goal of $50,000 may not be achievable.  So, we’re setting a lower interim goal of $10,000.  This is a bit disappointing, considering that the king and queen of Islamophobia, Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller, were able to raise almost $50,000 during their IndieGoGo campaign of hate.

We wonder why the Islamophobes are so successful in what they do, but it’s no mystery.  It’s all about the money.  Their patrons are willing to fund them.  The question is: will the Muslim community–and the peace-loving peoples of the world–support the group that is fighting back?

As I’ve said, $4,000 is a great place to start, and we are very grateful to all those who have contributed.  So, it’s not a time to be a gloomy Gus.  But, let’s not stop now though.  Let’s reach our new interim goal of $10,000.  If you haven’t contributed, contribute NOW.  And, as always, SPREAD the word.  Facebook us, tweet us, blog about us, email your friends about us.  Spread our video far and wide.

Thank you for your support.

      I’m afraid two extra photos posted by accident. But they’re all pretty.

      Yes, but it hasn’t always been the case. We’re fighting something that at its heart is very similar to racism and homophobia. Jim crow was largely based on a fear of black people, but eventually the civil rights movement was a able to overcome that. Gay people have also been demonized in our society, but now, more and more people support marriage equality. Fear of the other and fear of the different, can be over come.

      People buy more into fear than the truth…Sad, but true

      Hello, just a correction: Id ul Fitr is not a three day celebration, but a one day celebration.
