Secular Talk on Donald Trump Holding All Muslims Responsible for Terror Attacks

March 25, 2016

This is another great piece from Secular Talk’s Kyle Kulinski taking apart some disgusting anti-Muslim comments uttered by the Trumpenfuehrer on ITV’s Good Morning show. Trump had asked rhetorically why Muslims don’t report the terrorists in their communities. Kulinski here demolishes this by showing that they do. He presents these facts:

* In 2013 a Canadian imam prevented a terrorist attack on a train by reporting the terrorists planning the attack to Canada’s finest.

* In 2015 Kenyan Muslims aboard a bus gave their hijabs to the Christian passengers to wear to prevent them from being butchered by al-Shabaab.

* During the French terror attacks last year, a Muslim waiter saved two women from being killed by leaping in front of them when the gunman was firing. He was killed, but the two ladies survived.

* Indonesia’s largest Muslim organisation, comprising 50 million people, has roundly condemned terrorism.

* The Muslim community had a collection for the victims of the San Bernardino shooting that was raising $1,000 an hour at one point.

Trump is wrong. Very wrong. Kulinski points out that his default position is that all Muslims are somehow responsible for terrorism or sympathise with it. Now Kulinski says here that he believes that there is a problem with fundamentalist, Salafi Islam, beyond the terrible abuse of the Muslim world through the West’s foreign policy. But he makes the point that to condemn all Muslims, including people, who have had nothing to do with these attacks, like the Ahmadiyya, the Shi’a, Sufis – and so on, is bigoted.

Here’s the video.

Over here, I have a feeling that a number of potential terror attacks have been averted, because of information given from members of the Muslim community. And Some of the radical mosques full of the preachers of hate carried on, not because they weren’t denounced by concerned members of the congregation to the authorities, but because the authorities decided they didn’t want to act. I’ve got a feeling that the infamous mosque at Finsbury Park was one of these.

Trump’s talking populist rubbish. And the fact that he mouthed it on British television to my mind gives weight to the argument that he should be banned from coming to our great country.

Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Selling Poppies for World Peace

November 11, 2014

Muslim Poppy Sellers

The Huffington Post has this story, Poppy Selling Campaign By Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association Branches Nationwide , reporting that the Ahmadiya Muslim Youth Association are to begin selling poppies across Britain on Monday. The article quotes Farooq Aftab, a spokesman for the Association, as saying,

“Irrespective of whether you are Muslim or Christian there’s always going to be a few who don’t understand and try to undermine what you are doing. Thankfully most people do understand and are supportive,” he said.

Countering claims that the poppy glorifies conflict, Mr Aftab said the symbol promoted community feeling. ” The poppy is not about war; it’s about solidarity and showing loyalty to one’s country and standing together for a worthy cause. It’s about communities standing together as one.

“Lots of Muslims actually served in World War I and World War II and lots have ancestors who served in the army. We therefore hope that our participation is a clear indication of our desire for peace and unity between all nations, peoples and religions.”

The story can be read at http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2012/10/29/young-muslims-poppy-selling-rembrance-_n_2038318.html.

The Ahmadiyya are quite a strange sect. They have frequently been persecuted in some Muslim countries, such as Pakistan, as they are considered to be extremely heretical. Nevertheless, I wish them every success in promoting peace and understanding between nations and communities, and welcome their support of Britain’s War dead and their reminder that the British army including many Muslims.

I found the image and the story through the anti-UKIP Facebook page, We’re Still Laughing at the UKIP. They’re at https://www.facebook.com/SLATUKIPThree. Just in case you needed reminding how nasty, absurd and farcical Farage and his party still are.
