On Sunday, July 25, a Christian preacher and brave critic of Islam, Hatun Tash, was stabbed by a terrorist at Speaker’s Corner in the United Kingdom. The Christian refugee from Turkey fled to Britain to escape persecution following her conversion from Islam to Christianity. Hatun was stabbed while wearing a Charlie Hebdo shirt that states, “L’amour: Plus fort que la haine,” which translates to “Love: Stronger than Hate.”
A male wearing a large black hooded robe (thawb) punched and stabbed Hatun with a knife. The terrorist ran from the scene, dropping and leaving the knife behind. Police at the park chased down the terrorist, but it is unknown whether he has been apprehended. Hatun suffered wounds on her face and hands and can be seen in a video escorted by police into an ambulance.
Speakers’ Corner is an area in Hyde Park famous worldwide for open-air speeches and debates and is often used during rallies and protests because of its iconic status as a beacon for freedom of speech. Tash, who lived in an oppressive Muslim country for 27 years but now lives in the UK, often engages with Muslims at Speakers’ Corner and in mosques in “Christian-Muslim discussion.”
Hatun, the Christian ministry DCCI Ministries (Defend Christ Critique Islam), has been attending Speakers Corner for several years, preaching her Christian faith and boldly critiquing Islam. Unfortunately, throughout her time at the Corner, Hatun has suffered many threats and assaults by Islamic supremacists.
Hatun shines a spotlight on the stark difference between Muslim’s and Christians’ reactions to criticism and cartoons such as the Charlie Hebdo or Kurt Westergaard’s Danish ones about their religion. There were no violent protests, assassinations, or people forced to live under state protection for criticizing or poking fun of Christianity. Or even after the direct attack on its icons, such as with the government-subsidized “Piss Christ” art installation, a Catholic Crucifix in a jar of the artist’s urine.
On October 25, 2020, she was punched in the face and knocked unconscious by an Algerian Muslim migrant at Speakers Corner after showing a Charlie Hebdo cartoon of Muhammed, the Islamic Prophet. Hatun can be seen holding up the cartoon image in a video of the event while debating people. Shortly after that, she gets punched in the face.
At Speakers Corner on July 26, 2020, Hatun was physically assaulted by Muslims and dragged to the floor:
In August 2020, Hatun revealed during a live YouTube discussion with David Wood that UK police warned her that her life was in danger. This is called an “Osman warning” in the UK. It does not grant the recipient any special right or ability to defend themselves. But it seemingly does grant the police immunity from the responsibility to protect that person. Due to the Islamic threats to her life, she was instructed it was too dangerous for her to go to Speakers’ Corner anymore.
Despite the warnings, unintimidated, Hatun went to Speakers Corner on September 13, 2020. She believes that the Muslims are making threats to have the police stop her from preaching at Speakers’ Corner and spreading the word of God. Because of Hatun’s bravery and ministry, many Muslims have converted to Christianity.
Police forced Hatun to leave Speakers’ Corner, claiming it was for her own safety, and warned she would be arrested if she returned. But, instead of police removing and arresting the Muslims threatening her life, they targeted the innocent Christian preacher. In addition, the police enforced sharia law at Speakers’ Corner and acted to protect Islam from criticism. You can watch the full video footage here.
Freedom of Expression
As reported repeatedly by RAIR Foundation USA, “Muslims have put the free world on notice: if you insult Muhammad, Islam, their holy books, or even fail to consider Islamic law (Sharia) in all things, we will harm you.” As Muhammad stated, “Whoever curses a Prophet, kill him. Whoever curses my Companions, beat him.”
After the 2015 Charlie Hebdo Muslim terrorist attacks rocked France, any writings or words critical of Islam make anyone a target for assassination attempts and intimidation campaigns. Since the Hebdo attacks, the magazine survivors remain under police protection.
Even slight accusations of alleged Islamophobia by the left and Muslims have resulted in citizens being slaughtered, living in hiding, losing their careers, and living with targets on their backs throughout the West.
The goal of the left and Islam is to force all of the world’s people to submit to their ideology. “Submission” is the proper translation of the word “Islam.” Submission will be accomplished through force or by voluntary conversion.
Leftist activists, politicians, and organizations assist this violence and jihad on free speech by calling all who openly criticize Islam of being guilty of “hate speech.” This is a secular equivalent of “blasphemy” and is working its way into Western law.
Ex-Muslim and former communist Ridvan Aydemir, known as the ‘Apostate Prophet,’ slammed those who justify and incite violence against critics of Islam like Hatun Tash,
I’m not sure if everyone is aware of this but people who keep calling her and others like her names and keep calling people enemies of Islam are responsible for this. Stop calling people enemies of Islam. Stop justifying violence and punishments against people who do not agree with Islam, who leave Islam, who criticize Islam who offend Islam. If you think such brutal hate and violence is justified against people who disagree with your religion or who hurt your poor feelings then you are in the wrong place you should get the fuck out and live in some different country.
Hatun continues to show the world how intolerant and dangerous Islam is to a liberal and free nation. She has made it her life’s mission to spread the word of God and preach the Gospel to Muslims despite death threats and attempts on her life. Tash has also made the freedom of speech a driving cause, using her own experience to warn about what everyone in the West will face if we continue to surrender to Islam and its politically correct allies.
