. . . of course!
I knew it all along!
I wonder if the Police will have a serious little sit-down chat with Mr Bhamji for inciting racial hate . . . at a rally called "Love Aotearoa, hate racism"?
Like I said guys - we're just after consistency.
That's all, just consistency.
A WORD TO THE SENSITIVE:
I have become aware that some people find Dr Wood's approach a little too caustic for their tastes. I understand, but there are a couple of things you need to know:
Firstly, David Wood regularly debates prominent Muslims in the USA and regularly receives death threats for daring to point out problems with Islam's prophet, Islam's scriptures and Islam's history. So I would take a moment to consider how well you might go with all that pressure on you. He has also learned that being acerbic and confrontational rather than solely focusing on verifiable and solid Islamic textual arguments yields the best results when dealing with the general Muslim populace. Strange as it may sound to us, in practise many Muslims respond better to forceful argumentation that even involves some triumphalism than they do to measured dialogue. He learnt in their school.
Secondly, this is a matter of life and death not mere talk. The fact is that truth matters and that real human beings suffer when truth is misrepresented. David Wood and I are just normal people in this regard - we care when other people get hurt and we care when untruths are propagated that lead to people getting hurt. Antisemitism leads to Jews getting hurt. This is wrong and the very last place we should hear this stuff is at a rally for love. He and I get very, very upset when people are needlessly hurt or killed.
Surely we aren't the only people who are left that care about hate speech?
But never mind, I'm sure that Mr Bhamji will indeed be having that little chat with the Police and, like anyone else who might say similar things about the great "Muslim conspiracy" to over-run the West, will be facing charges of inciting racial hatred in the next couple of days.
I mean, that goes without saying right?
We just want consistency guys.
Following the New Zealand mosque attacks in Christchurch, mosque leader Ahmed Bhamji claimed at the "Love Aotearoa, Hate Racism" rally that Mossad (Israel's national intelligence agency) was behind the NZ shooting, and that local Jewish businesses were funding terrorist Brenton Tarrant.
Since Ahmed Bhamji is a prominent Muslim leader, and even hosted Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern at his Masjid e Umar, shouldn't New Zealand Muslims and especially Prime Minister Ardern be publicly condemning Bhamji's statements? David Wood discusses the issue.
