    BOOK BURNING

    Where they burn books
    They also put men on hooks
    No fire on the Koran just let it sing
    Judas, Just another Icarus who lost his wings

    THE MERCHANTS OF VENICE

    Hath not a Muslim eyes? Hath not a Muslim hands, organs,
    dimensions, senses, affections, passions; fed with
    the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject
    to the same diseases, heal'd by the same means,
    warm'd and cool'd by the same winter and summer
    as a Christian is? If you ***** us, do we not bleed?
    If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you poison us,
    do we not die? And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?
    If we are like you in the rest, we will resemble you in that.
    If a Muslim wrong a Christian, what is his humility?
    Revenge. If a Christian wrong a Muslim, what should his
    sufferance be by Christian example? Why, revenge.
    The villainy you teach me, I will execute,
    and it shall go hard but I will better the instruction.
    (Act III, scene I)

    By William Shakespeare

    The word Jew was replaced with Muslim
