The Anglican Bishop of Rochester, Michael Nazir-Ali, is just begging for a fatwa: Bishop attacks ‘Muslim hypocrisy’. (Hat tip: LGF readers.)
A senior Anglican bishop has accused many Muslims of being guilty of double standards in their view of the world.
The Bishop of Rochester, Michael Nazir-Ali, told the Sunday Times some had a “dual psychology” in which they sought “victimhood and domination”.
The Muslim Council of Britain said the comments were “not very helpful”.
The bishop, whose father converted from Islam, also said situations such as teaching could require Muslim women not to wear full-face veils. Mr Nazir-Ali argued it would never be possible to satisfy all of the demands made by Muslims because “their complaint often boils down to the position that it is always right to intervene when Muslims are victims... and always wrong when Muslims are the oppressors or terrorists”.
He compared Bosnia and Kosovo, where he said Muslims were oppressed, with the powerful position of the Taleban in Afghanistan, who he said had been the oppressors.
He added: “Given the world view that has given rise to such grievances, there can never be sufficient appeasement and new demands will continue to be made.”
This is exactly right, and has been borne out time and time again. It’s a primitive, tribal mentality that exists outside of rationality.
Muslim Council of Britain shill Muhammad Abdul Bari proves Nazir-Ali’s point with a veiled threat:
Muhammad Abdul Bari, secretary-general of the Muslim Council of Britain, told the Sunday Times such remarks could affect “community relationships”.
