You created a thread because the Daily Fail ( notorious for its super right wing views) basically said 'some random guys said X'....?
It's not a story worth reading, and a poor attempt at excusing Trumps comments
He's done, and you're gonna have to come to terms with that.

I think it's highly likely those clerics such as Abu hamza weren't just allowed to preach their idiocy and tolerated, they were fully protected. People like haroon rashid aswat certainly were.
I know many muslims that were very suspicious of anybody being allowed to openly preach hatefulness while systems like prevent were targeting people who had never spoken out or done anything wrong.

Was he excusing trump, funny I didn't see that.
You know, I welcome debate and disagreement however I don't think I've ever talked to the owner of this website like that and I don't think I ever would, if not just for respect.
Lord Rothermere ( former owner of daily mail)was a friend of Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler, and directed the Mail's editorial stance towards them in the early 1930s. Rothermere's 1933 leader "Youth Triumphant" praised the new Nazi regime's accomplishments, and was subsequently used as propaganda by them. In it, Rothermere predicted that "The minor misdeeds of individual Nazis would be submerged by the immense benefits the new regime is already bestowing upon Germany". Journalist John Simpson, in a book on journalism, suggested that Rothermere was referring to the violence against Jews and Communists rather than the detention of political prisoners. Rothermere and the Mail were also editorially sympathetic to Oswald Mosley and the British Union of Fascists. Rothermere wrote an article titled "Hurrah for the Blackshirts" in January 1934, praising Mosley for his "sound, commonsense, Conservative doctrine", and pointing out that: "Young men may join the British Union of Fascists by writing to the Headquarters, King's Road, Chelsea, London, S.W."
