Deference to Islam in the UK media (20 aug 15)
I've made many controversial comments in The Guardian online. But now, for the first time, I've been blacklisted for questioning the party line that ISIS is not part of Islam.
When I try to comment, it now says
Your comments are currently being pre-moderated
The reason was a comment on - http://www.theguardian.com/stage/2015/aug/18/shazia-mirza-look-at-me-isis-would-stone-me-to-death
Against Shazia Mirza's claim “This is my religion, and I don’t want people to think that Isis is part of that”, I argued that, if the leader of ISIS were able to comment, he would say that ISIS is very much part of Islam, and it's Mirza who's the apostate. I asked "how are we supposed to know who's right"?
The Guardian, and most of the Western establishment, makes a lot of effort to tell us "ISIS has nothing to do with Islam". So much for their supposed "Islamophobia".
