Don't give up on Tommy Robinson
Share
clear

Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller have done so already -- if I'm reading the corkscrew of an argument in this post correctly. Giving up is premature, however. I think he's boxing clever.

Listen to him in this clip (h/t Harry's Place).

The Chair of the Islamic Centre in Luton calls for gays (and presumably apostates or non-payers of Jizya) to be killed, but only "in an ideal Islamic state". Tommy Robinson leaps on him with something of the old fire. He then trots out the formulaic "most Muslims don't believe that", rather as Mark Anthony kept saying "and Brutus is an honourable man".

Whether or not it is a consciously thought-out strategy, Robinson's approach may get the counter-jihad message out in the mainstream more effectively than his demonstrations did. He may also be able to expose Quilliam for what it is, and nobody will be able to accuse him of not giving "moderate Islam" a chance.

Perhaps I am too sanguine. Watch this space - Tommy is down but not out.

The very fact that we speak in terms such as moderate muslims

surely proves that a moderate one is an anomaly

always looms large the violence

of the normal muslim

as opposed to the moderate muslim

moderate as far as what goes? violence?

a normal muslim or an abnormal muslim

strange dichotomy for a ´religion´´

of peace.......

Yes, getting the counter-jihad message out is always a Good Thing.

The EDL is not out either. To quote another sound person who was at the Bradford demo yesterday 

"There are many questions yet to be answered as to the way forward and the structure of the EDL. But future demos are planned and our enemies and the Government now know that the slogan of the EDL, ‘No Surrender’, is not just a nice sounding strap line to bolster shallow feelings but is a deep-rooted reality in the hearts of many patriots. This reality will find its expression in the EDL. We move forward with hope and determination."
