Tragic irony: Coexist artist beaten by Muslim gang in Paris

My boss, Col. West, has written here frequently about the naïve hopefulness of liberal progressives sporting “Coexist” bumper stickers on their carbon footprint-friendly hybrid cars.

But time and time again, Islamists have demonstrated that “subjugate” is more to their liking, for as we know, the word Islam literally means “submission.”

Sadly, a French street artist by the name of Combo was violently assaulted by a Muslim gang after they took offense to his “Coexist” artwork.

According to The Gateway Pundit, “Four Muslims in Porte Dorée (the Golden door), a ghetto east of Paris, beat artist Combo after he refused to take down his Coexist street art. Combo suffered a dislocated shoulder, bruises and a black eye.”


A blog called The Muslim Issue says “Combo, who is born in Amiens to a Christian Lebanese father and a Moroccan Muslim mother, created the artwork as a political message in response to the Charlie Hebdo massacre. Combo says his street art used to stay intact for at least 3-4 years but is nowadays vandalized within 2-3 days of creation.”

“Although Combo didn’t want to reveal the identity of his attackers, he states that he is afraid of future violence from a growing group of extremists in France.”

He tries “to find similarities” between religions in his art. He became well-known for a political message blasted over Beirut that read: “Less Hamas, more hummus.”

It was ‘very poorly received’, he concludes.”

Indeed. It is hard to “find similarities” with a religion whose followers beat, behead, rape, dismember, bury and burn alive those they deem impure or offensive.

I am sorry Combo was assaulted. But I am sorrier still that so many in the West continue to think a few camp songs and a group hug will solve everything.

Ok, so it’s not 100 percent of all Muslims. How ‘bout we just take some decisive action to eliminate the bad guys?
