Quote from Philip's last message:
"So he publicly identifies with a notorious Islamist and anti-Semite.
3,000 people in my country were murdered five years ago
in the name
of those attitudes. He should be banned indefinitely just as we would
ban a neo-Nazi who made similar anti-Semitic edits. These people do
not belong in our community."
1)"Notorious Islamist"-are you implying that Islamists (as in
2) 3000 people died on 9/11. Sorry about that. But scores of my
countrymen in Kashmir are murdered on a daily basis by fundamentalists
in that state. Do you see me condemning Abu because of that? He can
symathise with whoever he wants- he has a right to do that, provided
he does not vandalise Wikipedia.
3) "People like
you aren't welcome in civil society, and you know it, so you try to
hide behind excuses and rationalizations and straw men. It's not
going to work."
It is not upto you Philip, to unilaterally pass judgement on who
belongs in civil society.
I suggest you calm down and be more civil toward Abu. Treating him
with disdain based on his religion or his beliefs (though these might
not be acceptable to you) will only make you seem like a bigoted
Islamophobe-which I am sure you are not.
