Don't know who he is, or if he is any big influence, but the video is shocking enough to make me want to share it.
PREPARE TO WATCH SOMETHING VERY WORRYING

I'm always skeptical when I hear within the media something negative about a religion. Propaganda is rife and religion is often used as bait to control the support of the masses as billions of dollars are there to be made from war and terror for the powers that be who desire global supremacy.

This video clip though is clearly not propaganda. It's a general group of Muslims together at a gathering which looks like is set in the UK and not some remote village in an Islamic country. They proudly confirm their support of the punishments by death and stoning for those who commit crimes as ordered by Allah and his messenger in the Quran.

After watching this clip I contacted a couple of friends in Muslim countries who confirmed that Muslims worldwide agree and accept directly what is written in their holy book and that it is not something open to interpretation. So most muslim people, if not all, are homophobic and agree to the stoning of an adulteress woman and the killing of infidels (non believers) and other harsh punishments too. It's not just the fundamentalists who think like this. I was also told that it's not something that's spoken about every day as Muslims live normal lives going about their business, but, if a conversation was going to come up, they will agree to such punishments gladly more often than not, and this is most Muslims all over the world when in conversation with each other.

If you watch the video closely, there were young men on the front row that just seemed to be putting their hand up and giggling like school boys at the same time just for the sake of it, not really understanding what just hit them when responding to the questions asked by the speaker. They followed the majority it seemed. They, on first glance looked like they were not worldly wise but maybe easy to indoctrinate with ideology, preying on their rebellious and ignorant nature.

Whether these young men would actually stone a woman and kill an infidel themselves is up for debate, but it's worrying enough that the majority agreed that the word of Allah through their holy book should be followed no matter what by raising their hands in support. I don't want to say much more other than of all the religions out there, this is the one that concerns me most.

If there are any Muslims who wish to comment, if they think there is a misinterpretation in some way, my mind is open, I will listen to what you have to say but this is one worrying video clip!
