Maajid Nawaz: Do You Want Muslims To Integrate Or Not?

Post by Didge on Sun Nov 12, 2017 11:48 am

First topic message reminder :

Maajid reacts to the racist outcry about one of Tesco's Christmas adverts
Supermarket Tesco has defended featuring a Muslim family in one of its Christmas adverts following a racist backlash.

The clip provoked an unexpected response. Some called it “very wrong”, others promised to boycott the supermarket, for including a four-second scene in the advert which focused on a Muslim family.

Maajid Nawaz railed against the complaints: "You'd be complaining if they were refusing to say 'Merry Christmas,' 'This is a Christian country goddammit. Why can't we say Merry Christmas?'

"Now you've got an advert featuring a Muslim family celebrating Christmas and you're still complaining. It's a lose-lose.

"What do you want us to do? Do you want us to integrate or not? Do you want us to be a part of British society or not?

"Let me tell you, I grew up, born and raised in Essex, celebrating Christmas. I grew up saying 'Merry Christmas' to my neighbours and friends. I performed in a nativity play. 

"It was one of the best moments of the year and I remember it so fondly, my Muslim parents, my dad who prays five times a day, my Muslim family taught me to celebrate Christmas.

"If this is Britain and a Christian country then what is wrong with everyone celebrating Christmas?

"What happened to the story of the good samaritan? And love thy neighbour? What would Jesus do in this situation? Would he ban people from celebrating Christmas with him?

"It's so far removed from what you claim you're representing.

"The only conclusion I can come to is that this is driven, and fuelled, by a rising anti-Muslim sentiment that wants no Muslim presence in this country and will take any opportunity to decry and bemoan a semblance of a Muslim presence in this country.

"Your real agenda here is you just want a white, nativist, non-Muslim Britain. You want to hark back to that nostalgic sense you have of a country before immigration.

"That's the only conclusion I can come to because you're not happy either way.

"If Muslims refuse to integrate you complain. If Muslims integrate you complain. That tells me there's an axe to grind and you're grinding it."

thats not the point though is it??

the point is that Christmas which is a christian holiday has been desecrated in the name of political correctness like everything else related to Christianity in this country, abused and diluted to appease and accommodate everyone but Christians.

you don't get it because you belong to a religion that leaves a stack of corpses in its wake if anyone so much as says Muhammad in the wrong way.

if wetherspoons  showed an advert for eid with a bunch of England fans boozing it up,  some Sikhs , some Jews in Israel and some gays, basically everyone BUT Muslims????

there would be a string of explosions around the country in wetherspoon pubs along with Corbyn leading the condemnation in Parliament at the idea that eid belongs to anyone but the Muslims

it would immediately be condemned as racism and cultural appropriation, but if you're christian then its open season on you.

its ok to show a Christmas ad depicting everyone but Christians???

of course your happy with that, its not your religion thats under assault, no your religion is the one doing the assaulting    


Ok clam down mate!

Firstly you lot moan that Muslims don’t intergate

Than you moan when they do!

See the bloody irony here?

How do you know ‘Christians’ are not in the advert?


im not blaming Muslims for this ad.

im simply pointing out that anything christian in the country seems to be under sustained assault, and that if it was islam you wouldn't be so okay with it  

its simple  you had three separate and very prominent points in the ad (and ive only seen it once)

the first is the gay couple with the baby

the second are the Muslims

the third is the Sikhs  

all three were overtly obvious is what they were and at no stage was there anything related to Christianity that i saw, no crosses, no churches, no priests

maybe i missed it, maybe it was subtle but i saw nothing remotely christian in an advert about a holiday that is distinctly christian

its like showing people running around the woods with their dogs and then saying its an advert for BMW  

here is an idea Maybe What is wrong is YOU

You don't belong is a modern Western Nation Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

it's pretty fucking obvious that Your Opinions Don't belong in the UK or Australia, USA or any western nation.
So like the ISIS supporting mother fuckers, Fuck off to a nation you belong

SmellyDumbFuckAfrikanerTrollski still dreams of his old South Afrika of the 1960s and '70s...

When Apartheid ruled the day, 'blacks' knew their place (working six day weeks for one-sixth the white Afrikaners' wages for the same job, living in shanty towns, not having the vote..), and scumbag wastrel losers like Smelly could walk straight into a job..

Sadly for Smelly',  his old country no longer exists --  so nowadays he's finding his niche hiding away in the deep, dark and mouldy depths of his dear ol' mum's council flat basement,  trawling his fave neo-nazi/alt.right blogsites, spamming his nonsense across the likes of NewsFix and InaFlop, cheered on by his like-minded fellow hatemongers Deano and Tommy.

Poor lost souls;  your heart goes out to them..      Or not...          Razz

But...I can imagine the furore if a Muslim sacred event/day/festival was reduced to the mundane by the media.

By furore I take it you mean massed terror attacks
