WATCH: Islamic society students 'make death threat', disrupt lecture by Iranian woman speaking against Sharia Law

StaffRebel Columnist

Maryam Namazie fled Iran's violent regime and now campaigns against Islamic extremism.

She was giving a university lecture at the Atheist, Secularist and Humanist Society (ASH), of Goldsmiths in London and showed a cartoon of Jesus and Muhammad when hecklers began shouting.

According to Express, members of the Islamic Society complained that “create a climate of hatred and bigotry towards Muslim students.”

Namazie spoke after the event, “After my talk began, ISOC 'brothers' started coming into the room, repeatedly banging the door, falling on the floor, heckling me, playing on their phones, shouting out, and creating a climate of intimidation in order to try and prevent me from speaking.”

“I continued speaking as loudly as I could. They repeatedly walked back and forth in front of me. In the midst of my talk, one of the ISOC Islamists switched off my PowerPoint and left,” she continued. “The University security had to intervene and remain in the room as I continued my talk. Eventually the thug who had switched off my PowerPoint returned and continued his harassments. At this point, I stood my ground, screamed loudly and continued insisting that he be removed even when the security said he should stay because he was a student.”

Activist Reza Moradi, who was in attendance, said a member of the ISOC made a gesture threatening to kill him.

He told Express, “When the security guards first led out two ISOC members, one of them moved towards me and went ‘boom.”

“At that moment I just thought he was intimidating but it bothered me the way he did that. He and his friend came back in later and he was talking to his friend and I said shut up to him and then he looked directly into my eyes and moved his hands into a handgun shape and touched the middle of his forehead,” he added.

“At that moment I was worried, I took it seriously as a death threat. I was threatened and he was very intimidating,” he concluded.

The Islamic Society was forced to go on defense and pretended they were victimized, “Muslim students who attended the event were shocked and horrified by statements made by Namazie, and peacefully expressed their dissent to the disrespectful cartoons shown of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). These students were subsequently made subject to unnecessary bullying, abuse and violence by the ASH society and security staff. Some students were even forcibly removed from the event.”

The statement also addressed the allegations of death threats.


“Following the event, members of the public who were present at the event have been tweeting unauthorised pictures of our University students with fabricated statements regarding false allegations of "death threats.”

As you can see on the video, if anyone is being victimized, it's the lecturer.

This video proves how intolerant Islam really is.

So many things the progressive left claims to hold dear are attacked in this video yet they stay silent.

Thank you very much for posting this lecture. It’s one thing to read reports about it, but it’s another to actually see the interaction and reasoning of the different individuals. Quite informative.

I would be happy to have this Muslim as my neighbor.

Funny how universities can bar non whites but anyone else does so and the university has a friggin cow. I hope universities are some of the first bomb targets.

I would love it if this brave,moral and intelligent woman became a Canadian citizen.

They’re all so messed up in the head. Here they sit at a lecture in a university with the sole purpose of belittling the speaker. When they receive an education this will not change them nor civilize them, obviously based on this group of thugs. It just makes them much more dangerous to falsely integrate into a society that they hate and want to destroy and eventually they will wreak havoc in higher places such as schools and governments.

If those Hyenas want tolerance and respect, they need to treat others with tolerance and respect.

Trudeau is allowing 50.000 of these things in to Canada, by Summer. They are nothing more than Hunter Gatherers, who have learned little more than how to grunt. Our future looks bleak.
Thank You Justin, Allah Akbar.

And this is why bombing the desert should be in second place – the first thing that needs to be done is sort out the countries and the troubles the islamics bring – there is not one country that can categorically state that islam brought peace and love to them – it always brings violence.

Round them all up and dump them on Angela – she starte3d this mess – even if they are citizens – use the power of government to toss every one of them. Any lawyers and judges that argue this can be tossed as well.

The Tet offensive was infiltration of soldiers into South Vietnam – they then rose up and attacked and defeated the American Army.

That is what is happening in Eurabia right now.

This woman has more balls than most men I know.

Well done.

France is suppose to be closing up to 160 Mosques where hatred is being preached. It’s about time and I say jail these morons making death threats. This should have never been allowed to go unchecked to this point.

Damn – she is not to be f-ed with. Love when she finally uncorked on that smug P.O.S. in the purple shirt.

The problem is, Christians generally don’t act out like this – because they’re Christian – this is what Marxists, progressives and Jihadis do…
But in reflection, that might be a brilliant idea – Canadians going to their local mosques en masse and protesting, disrupting and not allowing the radicalization of Muslim terrorists to happen.
Use your rights or lose your rights…

I agree Donald. The difference would have been that more than likely the Christian group would have ACCTUALLY led a peaceful non-violent protest.
commented 2015-12-04 11:54:15 -0500
You could be damm sure that if this was a Imam talking about imposing sharia law and a christian group was protesting that the police would have been called and the protesters would have been arrested and charged with a hate crime
