  1. Great and poignant comments from Br. Hamza.

    Only by speaking the truth about Islam and setting a good example of our Prophets (sws) teachings in our own lives, can we confront the lies and hatred of Tommy Robinson and those like him.

    I pray that Br. Hamza will continue inspiring the masses to understand and love Islam, just as he has done in his own life. May Allah be his guide and protect him.

  2. Tommy Robinson will never engage Muslim Debators in Debate. Coz he know, He will get badly exposed. He loves monologue, Not Dialogue.

  3. Tommy Robinson may be flawed at times, but if you guys can’t even concede some of the points he makes then I think you may just be averse to self criticism. The Muslim community in Europe is the most divisive community at this time. That is a fact. Tommy Robinson has been physically assaulted and sent to jail for pretty much just speaking his mind. That is wrong and it doesn’t matter that it hurts Muslims feelings or whatever.

    • We are not averse to self criticism where and when necessary.

      Tommy Robinson is a hate monger, a racist, and a small minded bigot who has taken part in the unjust scape-goating of the Muslim community and blaming them for all of the problems that Europeans (and westerners) face, while also implicitly inciting physical violence and attacks on Muslim people.

      The fact that you admire and support him indicates that you need to engage in some self-criticism as well.

    Where did I even say I admire and support him? Not everything is black and white. Also just saying words like “racist” and “islamophobic” are meaningless buzzwords. I could easily say some people on this blog are “antisemitic” or “homophobic” but those would also be empty words. Anyway he’s literallt been attacked by Muslims for his activism, do you condemn that?

    • Norcal,
      Words mean things, regardless of what you may think or say.

      Of course I condemn violence.

      But do you condemn the antagonistic violence on the part of Robinson’s followers against Muslims which often agitates and compels the violence coming from Muslims against Robinson and his followers?

      You only seem to be focus on the actions of Muslims, but at the same time seem to give Robinson a free pass on his racist, bigoted, ignorant minded, “activism” which aims at stirring up hatred, violence, and unjust actions and attacks on many innocent Muslims.

      I expect better from someone who claims to be from a pluralistic democratic blue state like California. Sad.

  5. I’m beginning to understand why this site changed hands, from recent Twitter discussion.
