Islamist stops university debate with threats of violence

A talk on sharia and human rights by NSS Council Member Anne Marie Waters’ at Queen Mary College, London was cancelled at the last moment because of an Islamist who made serious threats against everyone there.

The talk was due to take place on 16 January but before it started, a man entered the lecture theatre, stood at the front with a camera and filmed the audience. He then said that he knew who everyone was, where they lived and if he heard anything negative about the Prophet, he would track them down.

The man also filmed students in the foyer and threatened to murder them and their families. On leaving the building, he joined a large group of men, apparently there to support him. Students were told by security to stay in the lecture theatre for their own safety.

Jennifer Hardy, President of Queen Mary Atheism Society, who organised the event said: “This event was supposed to be an opportunity for people of different religions and perspectives to debate, at a university that is supposed to be a beacon of free speech and debate.

“Only two complaints had been made to the Union prior to the event, and the majority of the Muslim students at the event were incredibly supportive of it going ahead. These threats were an aggressive assault on freedom of speech and the fact that they led to the cancellation of our talk was severely disappointing for all of the religious and non-religious students in the room who wanted to engage in debate.”

The police were contacted about the incident.

A commenter suggested following up this article with the video of the complete attack on Lars Vilks when he made his admittedly provocative lecture. I agree. THese two things are the same. Both at universities and both were attempts to discuss the influence of sharia law and Islam on European secular democracy. While Lars’s presentation was meant to inflame and the recent London one likely not, it makes no difference. In both cases Muslims would not tolerate any opinion given on Islam that was not in accord with their allowable views.

  1. Once again, this kind of action will keep repeating itself until the Government and the Authorities put a stop to it. This is a clear threat of violence and our criminal code must be enforced on these individuals, Muslims or not. Time to stop the political correctness.

  2. Now this is what I call “making a clear statement”. You’ve got to hand it to the adventurous jihadists for the boldness of their direct actions. The psychological impact will be profound. The pure insanity is that most of those who were present at this conference will probably keep on asking themselves if more interfaith dialogue couldn’t have harmoniously resolve the issue. I wonder if this isn’t what a typical sheep thinks when it faces a pack of wolves.

  3. It won’t be too long before they start attacking the police for protecting their targets, open civil war is coming to all of Europe.

  4. “a man entered the lecture theatre, stood at the front with a camera and filmed the audience. He then said that he knew who everyone was, where they lived and if he heard anything negative about the Prophet, he would track them down.”

    If anything like that happened to me I would stand up and say very loudly “One thing? One thing? ok well Muhammed is a pedophile, stupid, rapist, scumbag. A warmonger, mentally ill, inbred, coward, and all those who follow this pedophile fool should kill themselves”

    Screw fear, and screw their pathetic threats. Get in their face and fight back!

    At the end of the day, that is simply the only thing that will work. But what will it take before the average Joe-Westerner’s loss-benefit equation actually suggests that course of action?

  6. Einsamkeit: Unfortunately, from what I can tell about the way the law works in London, YOU would be arrested for making offending comments while the islamist thug walked free and got a pat on the back!

    What a cheeck!

    Who is this man and where does he live? Or where does he think he is living? In some impoverished, Mullah ridden, Islamic country, where freedom of speech and religion is a dead letter. This is what true terror is all about!

    The Lars Vilks video is another example of the herd mentality of some of these people. They do not think correctly so they don’t behave correctly. They think with the herd. Their response to mere words and pictures is like that of sheep in a panic, who act on instinct rather than reason. One lets off a roar and off they go, all the way to hell if necessary until they get their way. Like animals, mentally underdeveloped folk and young children are extremely suspectible to instinctive thinking!
