THREAD 1. Since posting about #HolocaustMemorialDay , encouraging us to remember where hatred leads - #Srebrenica + #Holocaust genocides for example + standing up against #antisemitism #homophobia #Islamophobia #racism etc, I have been trolled
2. Who are these trolls? They are sick, narrow minded bigots of the Muslim faith (+ one Islamophobe). What have they been saying? Well I've been called: shabbos, House Muslim, House Arab, sellout, Zionist, shill for Israel + accused of attacking the right to free speech
3. Free speech and antisemitic speech are two different things. I reported this bigot because he is a bigot and Twitter clearly agreed with me. Free speech is not the right to promote hatred. I did call someone a nutjob I admit and got told I was demonising others
4. Apparently demonising people with mental health issues. Well surprise on you because I have gone through - and know of others close to me - who have gone through mental health struggle so I am certainly not prejudiced against people suffering with mental health issues!
5. I do not get paid by Israel (lol!) - not that I have to justify myself to anyone. I believe in building peace. I believe in a 2 state solution. And I will never ever ever stop speaking out against #antisemtism. I will never ever abandon my Jewish brothers and sisters
6. This does not make me LESS Muslim - this makes me MUSLIM and HUMAN. I am proud to have nurtured friendships with Jewish brothers and sisters and proud to be working in interfaith. And I don't care if you want to "stick my blog where the sun doesn't shine"
7. People like you can't even begin to appreciate such work, such compassion, such honesty, such justice -the work carried out by me and my colleagues (not being big headed). We are striving for a better world, a more peaceful unified world free from injustice, bigotry and hatred
8. What are you striving for exactly? Right for you and none for anyone else? Hatred and division? You're not helping anyone - not the Palestinians, not the Muslim community. not ANYONE. You are simply feeding your ego + your bigoted minds
9. You feed off the freedoms you enjoin in, the right to free speech, the right to practice your religion freely and you THROW IT BACK in everyone else's face. The face's of those you cannot stand to listen to. It is YOUR hearts which are blind (yes I'm quoting the Holy Qur'an)
10. It is you who recite the holy words but they go through one ear and out the other (yes I'm quoting again). You spread poison, self-victimisation, bigotry, hatred, double standards and a selfish narrow world view that puts YOU at the centre
11. If you think this is what God (Allah) wants then I pity you. I pity you for the parched deserts of your soul which lack empathy, humanity, love and compassion. You may call me a whatever, but I know what I am and I know what I am a not. I pity you all. You will never stop me
12. You will never stop us, you will never drive us apart. You will not WIN. For LOVE wins everytime. Love wins. Not homophobia, antisemitism, Islamism, intolerance, bigotry and hatred. LOVE wins - whether you like it or not.
12. We will carry on. Carry on and STRIVE. For we are building beautiful things. So whilst you sit in your caves of hatred, darkness, bitterness and poison, we will continue to fly, to grow, to seek, to appreciate all of Allah Almighty's Creation and people.
13. We will GROW, we will LOVE, we will SMILE, we will LISTEN, we will LEARN, we will LIVE, LOVE and be BETTER than hatred. We will carry on. Till. The. End. Of. Time and neither you nor your bigoted "brothers and sisters" will stop us #peace #salam #shalom
14. Oh and it's "Voice of Salam" not "Voice of Satan". Only you hate-fuelled bigoted fools could confused beauty and love - goodness - with evil
