NZ Imam makes it clear: There is no compromise, we stop, or they hurt us

Religious leaders from the different faiths spoke of the need to get along, and for their religion to not be defined by extremists.

A solemn audience heard messages of unity from the leaders.

The Jewish co-chair of the Wellington Council of Christians and Jews, Dave Moskovitz, called on people of all faiths to stand together.

A muslim spokesperson for the group, Sultan Eusoff, said he hoped all people of Islam, including those in New Zealand, would not be tarred with the same brush as those who killed 17 people in France.

So far, so good right?  Get ready for the sting in the tail:

The imam of the Kilbirnie mosque where the vigil was held, Sheikh Mohammed Zewada, urged people to avoid creating any image of the prophet Muhammad.

He said this was the only way of achieving peace. [ my emphasis ]

And there you have it.

Islam and western freedom are incompatible.

Never the twain shall meet.

Draw an image of Muhammad, and there will be no peace.  And “no peace” is saying:  War.  Conflict.

Can politicians please let this sink in?

Halt all Muslim immigration to New Zealand now.

 

Final thought: true tolerance would have had that meeting in a synagogue.
