Bahrain: Europe not good at fighting hate speech, Abdullah says

Manama: “Europe is good at fighting terrorism but not at fighting hate speech”, said Foreign Minister Shaikh Abdullah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan on Saturday in a powerful intervention at the International Institute of Strategic Studies’ Manama Dialogue in Bahrain.

“Europe does not understand how offensive it is for a Muslim to be called an infidel or kafir, and authorities are often not aware of what is being said within their countries, and how hate is being created, said Shaikh Abdullah. “We are fighting for our religion, culture, heritage and our countries.”

Shaikh Abdullah also made several important political observations on current events in the region. First, he was outspoken about how much more constructive the new Iraqi government of Prime Minister Haider Al Abadi is compared to its predecessor under former Prime Minister Nouri Al Maliki…

He closed his comments with some cogent advice to the Israeli public: “You have elections in Israel. You have one choice. You can either vote for Daesh or you can vote for the Peace Process”.

  • They may not like me calling them followers of the false prophet – but that is what they are.

      Not just a false prophet, but a pedophile too.

    • They’re fine with calling us the kuffar too.

    The criticism of religion is the basis of the modern era. When the Universal Church was the Universal Thought Police, no one could study anything critically or independently. The Church controlled all thought and all information until printed books made reading great and important works possible. Then, with large numbers of books available to a reading and studying educated class, there were those who applied the new freedom to religion. There is no way we can oblige Muslims who are unable to bear the critique of Islam. They must retreat behind tall walls and remove telephones, television and internet. Then they can pretend that knowledge hasn’t disproved practically everything about Islam. Islam is based on obscurantism.

    As for this clown’s “cogent advice to the Israeli public,” Israelis have always supported a bona fide peace process. It’s his side that has rejected it.
