This video is one of the most heart warming things you will ever see on the internet. A clash of the extremisms, without the violence, at Speakers’s Corner in Hyde Park, London.
Muslims have a reputation for reacting violently to people insulting, questioning or denying their religion. But here, for once they appear to have found a way to respond with humour and tolerance rather than blowing people up.
We here at The XYZ welcome the idea that people can engage in vicious personal abuse, in mutual vilification of each others’ religions, and in overt intimidation of another, without resorting to violence.
Who knows, perhaps if Muslims can learn to laugh and throw the insults back, when told that their fairy tale God is a demon, perhaps we can extend the Royal Commission into institutional sexual abuse to the Islamic community as well.
