Margate Mosque Protest: An Assembly Of Anti-Intellectualism
by Matthew Hendley
Yesterday before noon, a few religulous leaders held a press conference outside the Masjid Jamaat Al-Mumineen mosque in Margate, preparing for that night's rally against the mosque and Islam in general.
What happened last night at the protest, however, went beyond blatant Islamophobia. These protesters were seemingly at war with truth, justice, and rational thought.
They certainly had the right to protest -- aside from their Constitutional right to assembly, the mosque's former imam, 24-year-old Izhar Khan, had been indicted in a conspiracy to support the Pakistani Taliban.
