HOW dare Muslim “leader” Muhammad Bari use the eve of Remembrance Sunday to compare the persecution and eradication of six million Jews in Nazi Germany to the way Muslims are being treated today in Britain?
This opinion is almost as ludicrous as his haircut. Or is it just a bad wig? Not only is he insulting the Jews, he is also attacking every one of our forefathers, of all religions, who fought the Nazis to protect free speech in this country. The same free speech and democracy that allows this pious prat to mouth off and insult us all.
Muhammad, I know that you are a teaching assistant. So here’s a quick history lesson for you.
I don’t recall Jews carrying out suicide bombings or calling for their own form of law in Germany. Come to think of it, I don’t think there were stupid Jewish girls using public money to bring court cases about their rights to dress like Daleks in the classroom, or not show their hair if they wanted to be hairdressers. I also don’t think that Adolf would have tolerated “lyrical terrorists” working at Berlin airport, writing poems or threatening to kill Kaffirs (non-believers).
So for Bonkers Bari to suggest that this country is becoming like Nazi Germany, and that people’s minds are being poisoned against Muslims as they were in the Thirties, is just absurd. This is the most tolerant nation in the world. The only people promoting anti-Muslim feeling in the majority population are fools like him, who think that we should all adopt Islamic practices such as arranged marriages and the banning of alcohol.
Instead of telling the nation that has offered him a home how to run itself, Bari should be trying to put his own house in order and clearing the extremist literature off the shelves of the bookshop in the mosque he chairs. But no, he would rather tell us that suicide bombers are really “vulnerable” and isolated. My heart bleeds.
But silly me, of course it’s entirely our fault, or at least the fault of our foreign policies. It’s us who have turned these ordinary British-born and bred lads, who love cricket, into the arms of the extremists. Stone me for daring to believe that we have provided a society in which all religions co-exist, rather than a one-religion state that enforces only one world view through a systematic form of terror and barbaric punishments.
If Bari wants to live in a country like that he should proceed to the door marked Exit and take his Stone Age ideas with him. But no, he would rather stay here and bleat: “There is a disproportionate amount of discussion surrounding us”. I agree.
So I tell you what, Bari, I’ll stop using a disproportionate amount of my time discussing Muslims when some Muslims STOP using a disproportionate amount of legal aid to bring ridiculous cases to court, when they STOP getting disproportionate amounts of time to air their grievances on the BBC and when councils and governments STOP spending disproportionate amounts of my cash and time on trying to appease a minority religion in a Christian country.
But until that happens shut up, Wiggy, for Allah’s sake.

Well, if it is, that’s because the majority of us are intelligent enough reject the bigoted ravings of idiots like Jon Gaunt.
In any case, none of the Telegraph‘s quotes from Dr Bari make any specific reference to the Nazis. What he said was: “Every society has to be really careful so the situation doesn’t lead us to a time when people’s minds can be poisoned as they were in the 1930s.” If Gaunt really thinks that bigotry and hatred towards the Jewish community during that decade was restricted to Germany, then you can only suggest that he’s in need of a history lesson himself.
