The BBC – among others – are carrying this story: Muslim reservist loses Iraq case. According to that page, and again I have seen it elsewhere, his reasons for not fighting are :
he did not want to be asked to fight against fellow Muslims and could not condone military action which was not “self-defence”.
- Unless you are prepared to do what you are told, when you are told and continue doing until told to stop, you shouldn’t join the forces. It’s not a discussion group.
- “self-defence”. Stupid statement. Again, your opinion doesn’t matter.
- He is RACIST. He wouldn’t fight “fellow Muslims” – that means he WOULD fight people of any other religious persuasion, which means, by definition, that he puts the value of his “fellow Muslims” above others.
That’s RACISM – no matter how you try to dress that up, that is discrimination, and that stinks.
Which idiot let this guy enlist ffs ?
