Has anyone seen this video where he is apparently mocking Islam?

I've watched various News items without actually knowing what it's all about. He has received death threats and dropped out of yesterday's Olympic celebration in London in favour of visiting a mosque to learn and understand more about the Islamic faith.

He is, apparently, going to be visiting more mosques to hopefully get his reputation back.

Not sure how I feel about this. Yes, we should respect other religions but I wonder if he's acting out of fear?
How much more remorse does he need to show?

What would Dave Allen make of it all I wonder. hmm

Pity he received death threats. Would the same thing have happened if he'd mocked Christianity or Hinduism or Judaism?

I would think he's acting out of fear! Who can blame him?! No, almost certainly be wouldn't have received death threats from other religions.

Er.....I'm not sure who Louis Smith is.

He's an Olympic gymnast, Lucky who upset muslims when a video was leaked of him apparently mocking Islam

Seems like he's certainly paying for it.
