TOMMY Robinson has set the record straight in the case of the Syrian refugee who was attacked in Huddersfield.
The story of the 15-year-old boy, who with his family came from the Syrians city of Homs, has been plastered all over the mainstream media after a video of the attack was posted on social media. He was grabbed by the throat and had water poured over him. A charity appeal has raised more than £80,000 so far for the boy and his family.
Initially, when he saw the video of the incident, Tommy said he was disgusted by the attack. He said that bullying is “disgusting” and wrong. Grabbing the boy by the throat was “completely wrong”, Tommy said. However, he soon started to receive “lots” of messages from children at the school that showed there was more to the story. They told Tommy that the refugee child has hit a girl and as a result she is being home-schooled and that the refugee threatened to stab his assailant.
Following on from his comments, Tommy said in a second video that he has seen images of the girl that the Syrian refugee was involved with a gang of Muslim girls that kicked, beat and bit the English girl. Her parents approached the Huddersfield Examiner, the local newspaper, who refused to report the story. The girls were however taken to court but the English girl was jumped and battered again.
Still, the media refuse to report the case of this girl and the fact that the Syrian refugee threatened to stab his attacker. It is literally “unbelievable” that the mainstream media refuse to investigate the facts of the story, Tommy said.
Editors Note: Tommy based his video on the below exchange on Facebook.
We have been made aware subsequently Rebecca Astonvilla Benit, has retracted and reversed her claims in this exchange and said that the Syrian refugee was not involved but only the three girls were. Reportedly, she is no longer on Facebook.
