Why this site?

Here at What if they were Muslim we question what would happen if a Jewish, Christian, Hindu, ______(insert religion of choice) were to commit a crime in the name of their faith. Would it be treated the same way if a Muslim committed the exact same crime? Would very little emphasis be put on the perpetrators religion? Would it be stressed that the act is an aberration, a misrepresentation of the religion? Would the religion be mentioned at all?

Another Tid-Bit...

WITWM is not a site that opines on the “what if” scenario of your favorite Hollywood star being a Muslim. It has nothing to do with Angelina Jolie or Johnny Depp, etc. It has everything to do with the double standards in both media and pop culture that perpetuate the myth that Islam is inherently more violent than other religions or the root cause of misdeeds by Muslims.

The new star of Israeli politics, Naftali Bennet of the Habayit Hayehudi party expressed why he believes there is no place for a Palestinian state.

What if he was Muslim?

‘No place in Israel for Palestine,’ says Naftali Bennett in maiden Knesset speech

(Haaretz)

In his first address to the Knesset, Habayit Hayehudi leader Naftali Bennett on Tuesday rejected any possibility of an agreement that would lead to the creation of a Palestinian state alongside Israel.

“There’s no place in our small and stunning piece of God’s country for another state,” he said. “It won’t happen. But friends, before any debate about territory, it must be said: The Land of Israel belongs to the people of Israel. Now let’s argue.”

Bennett also referred to his commitment to making the defense burden more equitable.

“My Haredi brothers, army service is also a mitzvah, no less than that,” he said. “It cannot be that they [the Haredim] won’t serve in the army. It cannot be that they won’t bear the economic burden. This is clear to the Haredim as well.”
