No, that is not what you said. You used the word sizeable, and were not willing to justify what you meant by it.

 

You stated that a "sizeable" number of mosques were radicalising muslims. Sizeable means "of considerable size". You didn't clarify what you meant by that, and you still haven't.

 

I still contend that you are making it up, and without any evidence from your end, you simply cannot refute that.

'Considerable size' will do me fine.

 

What you seem to want is some kind of accurate statistic like 38.2% of mosques are involved in radicalising muslims. However nobody keeps stats like that hence "sizeable".

In the EDL, we're not exactly dealing with the sharpest and most well-informed intellects. Check the penultimate tweet here for what the guy thinks is the Muslim holy book. :D

A spelling mistake. Nothing more.

:D  Probably the same "spelling mistakes" that this guy made then?

You would've thought that before joining a protest group you would make attempts to understand what you were protesting against including the spelling.

More likely to be deliberate.  Similar to people who used to hilariously refer to Tony Blair and Tony BLIAR

Damn those people requesting accuracy instead of vague, meaningless terms.

I suspect it's an auto correct.

People are idiots.

 

I remember a news story with a British teacher in Burma getting arrested and sentenced to hard labour for handing out leaflets with "There will be peace in Burma because the military are have guns". Perhaps the local language version was better but it didn't seem worth the sacrifice to me.

In the absence of statistics what do you want?

 

"The vast majority of Muslims condemn these attacks" said by very many people.

 

But how often does anyone ask for a definition of "vast majority"?

 

Or "tiny, unrepresentative minority" - never defined.

 

So people are just born to troll.

I'm going to have that on a t-shirt.

 

But, honestly, if you're going to say sizeable or words to that effect you should have *some* basis for it.

I can bring up a list of mosques known to have "issues".

I bet a sizeable number would buy one, will they come in vast majority, considerable & unrepresentitive minority ?

Yes, and can we have the name of the relevant Imam and size of the congregation.

That would help, but only if it can be analysed against the total number of mosques, and the size of the congregations.

Without that, you are just blowing out hot air.

 

There are @ 1,500 Mosques in the country right now.

More than 150 churches apparently.

 

That's nudging 250 instances of sky fairy worship before we even get on to yer Hindus, yer Sikhs and yer Jewishers.

 

And not one, not one, temple to the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Would you like inside leg measurements as well or will jacket size suffice?
