Give him another jab!
Ali, who has been a Muslim for five decades, said:
“I am a Muslim and there is nothing Islamic about killing innocent people in Paris, San Bernardino, or anywhere else in the world. True Muslims know that the ruthless violence of so called Islamic Jihadists goes against the very tenets of our religion.”
He went on to say:
“We have to stand up to those who use Islam to advance their own personal agenda. The have alienated many from learning about Islam. True Muslims know or should know that it goes against our religion to try and force Islam on anybody.”
But the championship boxer wasn’t the only one who’s speaking out as Zuckerberg posted a statement Wednesday — to his Facebook, naturally — proclaiming he accepts all Muslims:
We’re definitely on board with standing up against someone who wants to ban an entire group of people.
Here’s hoping Mark and Ali keep throwing the verbal punches!
