Former English Defence League (EDL) leader Tommy Robinson appeared at the High Court in London on Thursday after being sued by a Syrian refugee for defamation.
Sixteen-year-old Syrian schoolboy Jamal Hijazi and his family are seeking damages after Robinson alleged on social media the teenager had attacked white girls.
"I'm being sued by the lawyer who's trying to get Shamima Begum into our country, the lawyer who represents all the terrorists," said Robinson who further alleged the lawyer had given his children's address to a far-left extremist.
Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, had made the comments after a video of Jamal Hijazi being attacked in schoolyard had gone viral.

Seems the kid in question was bullied and beaten on video, and Tommy dared to post a comment about the viral video to the effect that the kid himself is a bad apple and had threatened others. So now Tommy's being sued for libel, and he stands by the truth of his statements.
Here's Jamal Hijazi beating video with commentary
Minority rights are very important to Mooslims in countries with Mooslim minorities.
In Mooslim-majority countries, there are no minority rights.
Great Britain has passed that tipping point.
Germany certainly has. My dad has a German friend and asked him last year how Germany is doing and he said two words: “It’s gone”.
Tommy Robinson and others continue to fight that. They’re reviled, of course, but they aren’t backing down. The kid who roughed up little Jamal, probably for messing with his sister per Robinson comments, is cause for hope. If there’s any hope for Europe, it’s in England.
