Suspect Paki

No, this is not a piece of racism, though you may be forgiven for thinking so. This is the name of a blog by somebody who thinks it's ok to use the word because he is one. That way its funny and ironic and not racist, he claims.

He did a fairly average rant about the NHS and I left an innocuous note which was sympathetic and complimentary. I also noted that

"You seem to be rather apopleptic about Jews, but no more than I am about Muslims, so I suppose we are quits."


My comment was fairly mild if you take the trouble to read his hysterical posts..

His terse reply to my post was
"read my rules"

Suspect Paki's rules state

"
  • Anyone insulting Allah (swt), His Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) or any of the prophets for that matter is liable for deletion.
  • Anyone accusing me of anti-Semitism in any way will be liable for editing or deletion. Let’s get this clear for those of you who plainly, just don’t want to get it! I don’t hate Jews. I hate Zionism. Expressed in the illegal, terrorism-founded state of Israel, it’s actually worse than apartheid.
  • Anyone getting too personal towards me or other posters will be liable for deletion.
  • You don’t have to like everything I say to be my friend. I don’t have to like everything you say to be yours. It’s called pluralism. It exists in Islam and has done since the beginning.
  • I get asked puerile questions like “why not talk about Darfur or the Democratic Republic of Congo” or other probes along similar lines. If you want to read about Darfur, you’re free to read other blogs. I write about what interests me. And Britain, being my country, interests me. Britain created the mess in Palestine. Britain went to war against the Iraqi people, despite the will of the British people. I write about Islam, because there are plenty of ignorant Islamophobes around(who are no better than slave-trading, racist, holocaust-deniers in my book) with their own blogs. Go read those if you hate my misrepresented religion. Otherwise, you are welcome to stay.
Those are his "rules" in their entirety.

I left another note:-

It seems to me that you are oversensitive to criticism, and like your fellow Muslims, you can dish it out but you cannot take it.

It’s a shame because this blog is interesting.


Of course, he cannot take it. He can dish it out but like most of the Muslims in this country he will criticise everything we do but won't allow us to criticise him.


Note: I have edited the above post in the light of Suspect Paki's reply on his blog. I have removed a low-level offensive epithet, that, on reflection he probably does not deserve and a word he deems offensive in relation to his religion (though I was not aware that this was the case). Sometimes you can be wrong about people and you have to deal with it.

As I said, his blog is interesting. We all descend in to Rantland from time to time, but his blog is no worse for that. I ask you to look at it and make your own mind up.

Yes I had a go at commenting on his site also a while ago. He has trouble with full open debate.

Which makes his banner line about "deal with it" a bit one sided and provocative.

But he write well - and the value of his contribution is he can be easily understood. A number of bloggers have tried to engage him - but reason only gets you so far.

His recent NHS experiences are a nightmare - I recently restarted private medical insurance for my family for just the sort of reasons he reports.
