In principle, it makes more sense for people not to order their lives around some old stories about a man who thought an imaginary entity spoke to him and gave him a bunch of instructions, so why do Muslims insist on doing just this?
Note I'm being not Islamophobic, because I haven't said "Muslims are bad people" - I'm just objectively and logically saying what would make more sense. If you take offence at that, it must be because you're intentionally seeing offence where there is none.
Tory MP Aidan Burley ruled 'stupid' but not antisemitic for Nazi stag party
Labour MP criticises prime minister for standing by Tory who organised Nazi-themed party in France and bought best friend SS uniform
...Gold's findings prompted the Conservative party to release a statement by Michael Ellis, parliamentary private secretary to the party chairman Lord Feldman, declaring that Burley has a bright future in public life.
Ellis said: "Aidan is a hard-working MP who is committed to his constituents in Cannock Chase and I do not believe Aidan is at all anti-Semitic. He has paid a heavy price for his foolish behaviour over two years ago and has rightly apologised repeatedly for his error of judgment. I am confident he will be an effective representative for the people of Cannock Chase and he has a lot to offer in public life."...
The problem was settled for me years ago when I would attend (out of interest) anti-war rallies and see scores of left-wing activists lining up alongside serious Hezbollah partisans (with flags and everything!), happily chanting that merry ditty "From the River to the Sea, Palestine will be Free!" Was that hard to unpack? Not really.
I guess you could be charitable and assume that the invariably non-Muslim SNP types were advocating a secular one-state solution, but the kind of militant groups they were content, in some cases eager, to make common cause with...well, they almost certainly were not. They wanted the keys back, and that meant expelling the Jews. It was not a peace rally. It was hard to see it as simply political anti-Zionism, and still is. It is, in fact, even harder now.
Also, I will give Droid his due, I think he is probably the most militant anti-Isreali poster here, but I would hesitate to lump him in with that lot.
On the other hand, his staunch defence of Corbyn on this is problematic. It is precisely his leadership that has allowed these people to gain credence and a platform. As predicted last September. You can't expect Corbyn to come down hard on Livingstone, because he's a Livingstone ally, or more accurately, until recently, he was a pilot fish attached to the Livingstone shark.
