Dr. Alan Clifford sent this response to his critics to the editor of the Norwich Evening News. He kindly sent it to me also:
Sir, In view of the high level of national and international support I am receiving, Dr Gibson is simply out of touch. My remarks about Islam are not in the least ‘unmeasured’ or extreme. I have simply told it as it is.
In telling me to ‘shut up’, is Dr Gibson only interested in free speech when opinions conform to his own prejudices? His unfortunate and irrational response barely disguises his probable complicity in the Lefts’s love affair with the Muslim Association of Britain. If so, as Anthony Browne stated in The Times (August 11), the ‘frightening agenda’ of this ‘sinister brotherhood’ needs to be exposed.
Mr Sohale Rahman‘s misrepresentation of me must be corrected. Being opposed equally to the extremes of the Left and the Right, I have no association whatever with Nick Griffin and the BNP.
Consistent with my love and concern for all humanity, I continue to oppose Islam. The only antidote to this evil religion and its barbaric ethos is the pure Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Revd Dr Alan C. Clifford
