  • Anne Marie Waters, Islam Is Not A Peaceful Religion, Oxford Union

    Published on 3 Jul 2013 Anne-Marie Waters gives her argument against Islam being a peaceful religion. Anne-Marie Waters, council member of the National Secular Society, begins the case for the opposition by denying that she and her fellow opposition speakers cause fear of Islam and blames instead "the actions of Islam itself". She lists "9/11, 7/7, Mali, Somalia, gender discrimination, forced marriages, polygamy, amputation", and many more. To the opposition's claim that these acts belong to an "extreme fringe" which has misunderstood the words of the Qur'an, she described the executions for blasphemy and apostasy in Saudi Arabia, and asks "has there ever been a more spectacular misunderstanding?" Waters concludes by arguing that it is the moderate Muslims who must "dance around meaning...
