The witless Express — and the even more witless UK authorities — doubtless don’t know that what Fadel Soliman is saying about beating disobedient women is straight out of the Qur’an (4:34), and so cannot by their definition be “extremist,” but that is just one aspect of the failure of those authorities. Fadel Soliman said, “After passing through two stages of non-physical interaction, the next stage must involve something physical, in order to escalate the intensity of the warning. The true implication of the spanking is to sound an alarm that the husband has passed to a new stage of serious displeasure.” That was fine with British authorities; he was admitted into the country and is touring universities, giving talks. Saudi Sheikh Mohammed al-Arefe has said: “Devotion to jihad for the sake of Allah, and the desire to shed blood, to smash skulls, and to sever limbs for the sake of Allah and in defense of His religion, is, undoubtedly, an honor for the believer. Allah said that if a man fights the infidels, the infidels will be unable to prepare to fight.” That was fine with British authorities, and he, too, was admitted into the country. Meanwhile, I said he was banned for saying: “[Islam] is a religion and is a belief system that mandates warfare against unbelievers for the purpose for establishing a societal model that is absolutely incompatible with Western society,” and for that, according to the UK Home Office, I was banned.
Britain, in short, has gone mad.
“Muslim preacher who ‘said husbands should hit their wives’ allowed to tour UK universities,” by Fraser Moore, Express, January 9, 2016:
Egyptian cleric Fadel Soliman has spoken at five events in the past year, in which he reportedly advocates domestic violence and outlines the “Islamic case” for sex slavery and polygamy.
At a University of Sheffield event he told more than 100 students to share his controversial videos on Facebook, according to the Daily Mail.
He also appears to have a celebrity-like following, with groups of women discussing how much they “loved” the cleric before the Sheffield event.
One young woman even travelled all the way from London just to see him in the flesh.
Mr Soliman has denied he supports domestic violence, but in one of his 30-part video series he allegedly says: ”After passing through two stages of non-physical interaction, the next stage must involve something physical, in order to escalate the intensity of the warning.
“The true implication of the spanking is to sound an alarm that the husband has passed to a new stage of serious displeasure.”
Meanwhile, the organisation CAGE – which called sick ISIS murderer Jihadi Jon a “beautiful young man”- has spoken at 13 events at universities since September.
It has even allegedly called on students to sabotage government counter-terrorism strategy Prevent.
As many as 19 universities now face an inquiry over failing to “ensure those espousing extremist views do not go unchallenged” as outlined by the scheme.
Home Secretary Theresa May – who pioneered Prevent – said the revelations show universities need to do more to stop ‘damaging, extremist rhetoric’ going unchallenged on campuses.
Jihadi John, real name Mohammed Emwazi, is believed to have been radicalised at Westminster University.
It was reported in September that the Islamic society at Westminster is “hostile”, according to a report.
But complaints about the society were downplayed or ignored by the University over fears of “appearing Islamophobic”.…
