More tea Imam?
Just when I was beginning to think that the world was full of lunatics, this story helped me to realise that only the majority are mad.
Of course, the EDL missed a trick here. They should have gone to the demonstration, armed with tea and halal biscuits for the Muslims.
I would hazard a guess that many of the EDL would classify themselves as Christians, which means that if they really follow Jesus, they should love their enemies, not hate them.
See what happened when Muslim inmates at a maximum security jail, were asked to pray for murdered soldier Lee Rigby.
The selfless "agape" love, about which, Jesus spoke, is revolutionary and disarming of the powers of darkness and hatred. We could all do with giving it a try.
