From Nassar Abdo to Muhammad Ali, the song remains the same

September 2, 2010 by  

US Army Private First Class (PFC) Nasser Abdo is seeking a conscientious objector discharge from the military based on his religious beliefs as a Muslim.

While his case is polemic and has already drawn criticism and death threats, it does bring to mind another conscientious objector whose words still reverberate today, just as they did more than four decades ago:

Muhammad Ali

“Why should they ask me to put on a uniform and go ten thousand miles from home and drop bombs and bullets on brown people in Vietnam while so-called Negro people in Louisville are treated like dogs and denied simple human rights?” — Muhammad Ali.
