I was just complaining to someone yesterday that what makes the world situation so much worse is that “even OUR side is confused.”
Aaron Hughes, who now teaches at the University of Rochester, N.Y., said he wanted to speak out after a series of CBC News stories revealed that several young Calgarians have headed overseas as jihadists in Iraq and Syria.
“I was very much bothered by the conservative nature of the Muslim student body,” the religious studies scholar said.
“They made teaching Islam from an objective perspective very difficult because they knew what the ‘real’ Islam was. Of course they didn’t.”
No, dude, they DID.
“When I was living in Calgary, I was probably the person objectively that knew more about Islam than anybody. Not once did I ever have a conversation with anyone from the Calgary police services,” he said.
Again: he doesn’t get it — those “conservative” students (he uses the word repeatedly) DID know the “real” Islam.
He’s mad that no one listened when he tried to warn them about “conservative” Muslims mis-teaching Islam.
He should have been warning the cops that they were teaching it correctly!
