Actually Paul is All-nutt…….
Gerard Batten co-sponsored the very reasonable ”The Proposed Charter of Muslim Understanding” in fleshing out sharia , Islam 101/Post-Hijra adherent Mosques, Imams and Muslims. Anyone disagreeing with that charter has to be an ‘extremist’ under any definition. Batten should be the go to guy for that party on anything to do with understanding Islam as it should be understood. Churchill would have understood, and perhaps even elevated the man to an advisory capacity on the subject.
NOTE: I’ve actually talked with the man, he definitely does know his stuff.
UKIP Leader Paul Nuttall Won’t Back MEP Who Called Islam a ‘Death Cult’
UK Independence Party (UKIP) leader Paul Nuttall has distanced himself from one of the party’s MEPs, who described Islam as a “death cult”, insisting he had “got his terminology wrong”.
UKIP Member of the European Parliament (MEP) Gerard Batten (pictured left) had written a blog post after the Islamist Westminster terror attack, in which he said Islam “is a death cult, born and steeped in fourteen hundred years of violence and bloodshed, that propagates itself by intimidation, violence and conquest”.
The statement was immediately slammed by the Liberal Democrats and Green Party, who described the comments as “hateful” and “the gutter of British politics”.
Mr. Nuttall was asked about the row during an interview on ITV’s Tonight programme. “I would never personally describe Islam in that way”, he responded, adding:
“I think [Mr. Batten] got his terminology wrong, okay. I think Islamic fundamentalism is a cancer within our society… [but] I don’t think Islam itself is a death cult [in] any way, shape, or form.”
