PUBLISHED: 11:23 GMT, 16 March 2013 | UPDATED: 11:55 GMT, 16 March 2013 British society is scared of offending a ‘vocal and aggressive’ Muslims, claims a former adviser to Barack Obama.

Prof Lawrence Krauss made his comments after threatening to walk out of a debate hosted by an Islamic group at the University College London where organisers would not allow men and women to sit together.

The Islamic Education and Research Academy (iERA) told women to sit at the back, while men and couples were sent to the front. Three people who objected were ordered to leave.

The public debate last week was on the subject ‘Islam or Atheism: Which Makes More Sense?’

Ignoring audience jeering, Prof Kraus told an organiser: ‘Either you quit the segregation or I’m not interested.’

He returned when staff allowed men and women to mix.

  1. I posted this comment on the Daily Mail site, but it’s unlikely to appear as comments posted there usually vanish into thin air.

    “There are a lot of comments here all essentially saying that they agree with Professor Krauss but they are frightened to speak out for fear of being arrested for hate speech. Blair’s pernicious hate speech laws have transformed this once free country into something resembling the Soviet Union, where people get arrested for speaking their mind. All that’s needed to complete the picture are the labour and re-education camps, and I’m sure they are on their way.

    Nevertheless I am reminded of Edmund Burke’s observation that all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. The decent people of Britain far outnumber those who would impose their totalitarian rules on us, or the hardline islamists who would impose the horrors of sharia. Yet these people are determined and will have their way if we permit them to. It’s no good expecting the politicians to do anything as they have created this mess. If you wish your children to be free, then you must act.”

  2. “The public debate last week was on the subject ‘Islam or Atheism: Which Makes More Sense?’”

    That’s easy, Atheism makes more sense than Islam, but then again so does Buddhism, Hinduism, Sikhism, Sun worship, the flying spaghetti monster, Father Christmas and the tooth fairy.
    The fact that these retards even have the gall to ask such a question, just goes to show what arrogant, ignorant and confused morons they are.
