Rod Liddle's Track Record of Hate Speech

Rod Liddle wrote a column for British newspaper The Sunday Times discussing the recent release of Anjem Choudary, who was in prison for inviting support for the Islamic State. In the piece, Liddle urges “British Islamists” to “blow themselves up – somewhere a decent distance away from where the rest of us live. Tower Hamlets, for example.” Tower Hamlets is one of the UK’s most diverse boroughs, with an estimated 38% of Muslim residents and an established Bangladeshi community.
