Having been the target of multiple death and beaheaing plots for my work in defense of free speech, I can tell you that vicitims of Islamic supremacist violence are always depicted as the ‘aggressor’ and the poor jihadis as being the misunderstood victims.
If a Muslim woman was attacked by a “Christian mob” (unheard of), they would be rounding us all up. But supremacist Muslims are a protected elite class. Bow and scrape.

You can be stabbed for criticising Islam?
Yesterday’s bloody events in Hyde Park should horrify everyone who believes in liberty and reason.
When are we going to talk about Hatun Tash? She’s the ex-Muslim and Christian evangelist who was allegedly slashed with a knife in broad daylight in Speakers’ Corner in Hyde Park yesterday. And almost as shocking as the incident itself – as this horrific assault on a woman who was merely expressing her beliefs – has been the silence about it. There has been a trickle of press interest, but no big media splashes, no hashtag solidarity, no politicians expressing concerns that Britain seems to have become a country in which you criticise Islam at your peril. What is going on here?
Ms Tash is a former Muslim who is now a Christian and a prominent critic of Islam. Her religious view is that Muslims should be encouraged to convert to the Christian faith in order to save themselves. No doubt many Muslims find this an offensive idea, which they are perfectly at liberty to do. Tash is a regular of Speakers’ Corner. She engages in heated debates with Islamic preachers and others. Yesterday she was wearing a Charlie Hebdo t-shirt and making her usual comments about Islam, when a man in a black hood lunged towards her with great force, slashing at her face and her arm. Her face was covered in blood. The video, which has been widely shared online, is a difficult watch.
As the Met Police have said, we do not yet know the motive of the attacker. But one can make a reasonable guess that Tash was assaulted for her beliefs. Indeed, this isn’t the first time she has been attacked. Last year, she was punched in the face after displaying a cartoon of Muhammad at Speakers’ Corner. She was advised by police not to return to Speakers’ Corner – traditionally the one place in the UK where you can express pretty much any belief you like – for her own safety. Tash is living proof that being an ex-Muslim can be a risky business in our supposedly secular, free nation.
Let’s be real about what appears to have happened in Hyde Park yesterday – a woman known for her critical attitude towards Islam was violently assaulted with a weapon. In Britain, in the 21st century. Where are the cries of denunciation, or at least of concern? The woke left claims to be against fascism, yet it is eerily quiet about a seemingly extremist attack on a woman for holding particular beliefs. Our media elites shake their heads over online abuse, but they haven’t yet mustered up the energy to talk about this act of brutal physical abuse against a woman – an immigrant woman, at that – who was only criticising a world religion.
The hush, so far, in relation to this attack is a depressing sign of the times. Our society seems incapable of speaking honestly and frankly about Islamic extremism. And this assault, at this point, appears to be such an act. Consider, also, the failure of many of the candidates in the Batley and Spen by-election to stand up for the Batley Grammar schoolteacher, who was hounded into hiding simply for displaying an image of Muhammad during a classroom discussion of blasphemy and offence. In fact, barely any politicians or institutions, including the teaching unions, were willing to give a full-throated defence of the teacher. Every time there is an outburst of worrying Islamist activity, those in the opinion-forming set just stare at their feet. ‘Make it go away’ is their attitude.
