23 岁的阿拉伯年轻记者 Hamza Kashgari， 因在自己的 Tweeter 上以阿拉拍文写了 ：
"On your birthday, I will say that I have loved the rebel in you, that you've always been a source of inspiration to me, and that I do not like the halos of divinity around you. I shall not pray for you,"
"On your birthday, I find you wherever I turn. I will say that I have loved aspects of you, hated others, and could not understand many more,"
"On your birthday, I shall not bow to you. I shall not kiss your hand. Rather, I shall shake it as equals do, and smile at you as you smile at me. I shall speak to you as a friend, no more,"
