We Can’t Answer Him So Keep Away From That Guy!!!

Earlier this week (Monday) I received a private message on Facebook from one of my buddies telling me of some self-deluded exaggerationist wannabe vanguards of Salafism warning others to keep away from me on Twitter. Being that I don’t have a Twitter account, I had to do a bit of searching to find the tweets. Here’s the exchange that took place (on all images in this post, click to enlarge to actual size):
These exaggeratioists clearly don’t suffer from any lack of hyperbole in the least and easily live up to the moniker.
What started all this? The aforementioned video on YouTube attacking my friend, Abu Usamah Atthahabi, for supposedly praising Shaikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi. I had seen the video posted to some Facebook group and thought I’d ask a question in the comments section of the video. Here’s the comment along with the reply by the uploader, “Destroying Baatil” (this Abu Sumayah Laughton cat).
Shortly after, I found Laughton’s email address in one of the comments to the Abu Usamah/al-Qaradawi video and decided to email him. Here’s how that went down:
Unlike some others, I have no real use for YouTube other than to watch videos. I have no delusions of becoming some great YouTube caller to Islam. I don’t believe it to be an effective medium for propagation of the religion. The same goes for Twitter, which is one form of “social media” I have absolutely no desire of ever using.
Now, one thing that is painfully obvious about these jokers (and others like them) is that when they are confronted and challenged with questions that entail using a bit of common sense, they cower and hide. Only to raise their heads when they believe the coast is clear to beat their chests and pat their backs at how they put their opponents in their lowly places and utterly refuted them.
These losers are completely bankrupt.
May Allah save and protect us from such idiocy.
