Hero of the Day: Train Passenger Defends Muslim Woman from Islamaphobe

A 23-year-old woman in Sydney, Australia has won over the world after standing up to a hateful train passenger who was accusing a Muslim woman of being part of ISIS.

Stacey Eden overheard the passenger harassing her for about 10 minutes before deciding to intervene and film their conversation.

At one point the lady mocks the Muslim woman for wearing a hijab.

“Why do you wear it for a man that marries a six year-old girl?” she asks.

“She wears it for herself, ok?” Eden replies. “She wears it because she wants to be modest with her body.”

The Islamaphobic woman then brings up recent terror attacks and beheadings, to which Eden says “that’s not her doing it. That’s a minority of people.”

She posted the video of the confrontation to her Facebook page on Wednesday encouraging everyone to love on another regardless of religion.

“People like this make me sick,” she wrote in a Facebook post with the video. “People who are so ignorant and disrespectful to other people who were clearly sitting there minding their own business. ”

She’s received lots of support from people online about the incident, including the Muslim woman’s husband Hafeez Ahmed Bhatti who posted the video to his own page thanking her.

“God bless Stacey Eden,” he wrote.

Grandmother of the Day: Did This Old Woman Scold ISIS Militants in Syria?

Favorite

One grandmother apparently gave ISIS quite an earful.

In the video above which surfaced last week, an old woman in Syria gets right up in the face of some ISIS militants (according to the uploader) telling them that what they are doing is wrong.

“Oh you devils, turn back to God,” she says, “It’s all forbidden. I swear nothing what you have done was in the way of God.”

She argues against the unnecessary slaughter of innocents and warns them that their group is cursed.

“Neither of you will win,” she says. “Nor will anybody, you only will keep killing each other like donkeys.”

The men laugh and make fun of her, telling her to go away.

There isn’t much more information on the origins of this video, and the BBC wonders if the men are in fact ISIS as the uploader claims them to be. Some commenters are pointing out that if it really were ISIS, they would have killed the woman on the spot.

Over the weekend, U.S. led forced conducted a number of air strikes against ISIS targets in both Syria and Iraq.

The game features both out of context quotes directly from the Bible as well as punched-up entendres based on real scripture (IE: "A fiery bush" or "A rainbow promising that God can genocide you through other means"). The creators didn't intend the game to be a satire or a wink-nudge parody of faith, but rather just a funny, bizarro take on well-known scripture - and the most awkward family gathering conversation starter.
