Hey it's OK,
you can take yourself seriously
Raheem Kassam grew up in England but came from an Isma'ili Shi'a background. He left the faith and now works for Brietbart News (odd isn't it that a brown person works for someone who is supposedly a "Nazi in a suit" - as I have heard the ex-White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon described).
This is an energetic exchange between like-minded blokes.
- the nature of European no-go zones;
- Kassam's own "Islamophobia";
- freedom of speech;
- the exasperation people feel who try to highlight the issues around Sharia, Jihad & free speech and are dismissed & called names (we know this can become really really trying can't it?);
- the need for us to take whatever we have in our hands to engage and make a difference among our friends - do not be put off;
- the huge demographic change that will spell disaster for all the West on our current trajectory;
- the difficulties surrounding the wearing of the hijab;
- the virtue of satire & of mocking Islam(!);
- the necessity not to take ourselves too seriously (hooray!) - at any time ;
- the need for secure borders - apparently this is a controversial point for many these days, although I have no idea why it should be;
- and, one of Gad's favourite questions, the likelihood of reforming Islam.
Overall I think the message here is that we have nothing to be ashamed of. Let's act on our outrage and politely but firmly get engaged with the issue. Truth and mercy are on our side. We will win.
