Yesterday, Coventry University students published their objections to our demonstration in Coventry next Saturday, 21 May 2016. We were asked for a response:
Name: – Sam Murray
Subject: – Coventry march
Details: – Dear press team,
My name is Sam and I work for The University Paper.
Coventry Uni Students Union has released a statement labelling the EDL ‘racists’.
CUSU has also backed the demonstration against the EDL’s march in Coventry.
Here is their statement:
Would you like to comment on the matter?
Here’s our response
We think the CUSU have the wrong group, Sam. We put a statement about our Coventry demo on the web a month ago.
There is nothing in that statement that is racist – unless you are playing Humpty-Dumpty with words:
“When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said,
in rather a scornful tone, “it means just
what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.”
Indeed, Richard Dawkins helped to clarify the situation a couple of years ago when he tweeted:
“If you can convert to it
(and if you can be killed for deciding to leave it)
it’s not a race.”
Can I suggest you recommend to CUSU that they examine our mission statement. It’s all there, in plain English:
You referred to “hate”. Hate is the emotion displayed by the Islamic bombers in London on 7 July 2005, by the Islamic murderers of Fusilier Lee Rigby and by the thousands of Muslim grooming gang participants across 45 locations (so far) in England. To say nothing of Boko Haram, Al Shabaab, ISIS, al-Qaeda and numerous others overseas.
But “hate” is exactly what Allah has for non-Muslims (according to the Koran 40:35). And Mohammed urges all Muslims to adopt this “great hate” of Allah’s towards non-Muslims. In the Koran (and in mosques across England) non-Muslims like us are referred to as kuffar. I leave it to you to learn what state of mind a pious, devout or good Muslim has to kuffar. Don’t duck this homework, Sam. Muslims have brought this holy, Allah-ordained, hate into England. So we’ll be in Coventry telling it like it is.
We won’t be going anywhere near “racism” to state our position. “Racism” and “Fascism” are terms necessary for CUSU to build what they appear to hope will pass as a credible condemnation of our opposition to Islamification of England. But the condemnation is a straw man. CUSU are barking up the wrong tree.
We think that covers what you refer to as “the matter” as adequately as we can, without second-guessing what other agendas CUSU may have.
So let’s stick to the facts. No straw-man arguments, no bullshit about ‘nice Muslims’. The only authority about Islam we recognise is Mohammed, not Nadia Hussain or other sweeties like her. Mohammed is the authority Muslims recognise, so we’ll confront that – head on.
