Bumper Sticker Message Stops Terrorists

MUMBAI, INDIA - Another tourist massacre was averted when four militant gunmen observed a "Coexist" bumper sticker. "We were outside the ITC Grand Central Hotel," said gunman Nasir Syed. "We were about to fire into a crowd for the glory of Allah when a vehicle drove up with a thoughtful message." Syed was referring to the popular "Coexist" bumper sticker that forms letters using peace, Taoist, gender and religious symbols. He continued: "'How very clever,' I thought. Note how diverse symbols create a single word telling us we are all linked." Syed and the other gunmen lowered their weapons. "We were shamed by this simple, common sense message." Indian commandos arrived, but refrained from arresting Syed and his companions after they'd heard the story. "The commandos and I have formed an inter-faith study group," chuckled Syed. "We meet over coffee and discuss the many ways in which we are all bound together on this big blue planet. Also, they have cool guns which they let me shoot."
