London 7/7 Bombing
by, Mudar Zahran | Gatestone Institute
If you look at the London Tube Bombing of 7/7; the Madrid Train Bombing; two attacks on the World Trade Center; the murders of Lee Rigby, Theo Van Gogh, Daniel Pearl, Nick Berg, Ilan Halimi, and countless other attack and threats, how can we honestly expect people not to be “Islamophobic”? It would appear we have no one to blame but ourselves.
If we Muslims are actually opposed to these Islamist hate preachers, why are we failing to take a unanimous public stance against them, to disown and isolate them from our community?
After the murder of British soldier Lee Rigby by Islamic extremists in London last May, The Guardian reported a surge in the number of anti-Muslim offenses.
Also, last May, a poll by the British research firm, YouGov, showed that nearly two-thirds of Britons believe there will be a “clash of civilizations” between British Muslims and white Britons, and 34% believe that Muslims pose a serious threat to democracy.
As a Muslim living in the UK, I wonder, who is to blame for the increase in anti-Muslim feelings in the U.K.? Or is the problem “Islamophobia”?
If one dispassionately examines facts, it seems possible that if “Islamophobia” exists in the U.K., then perhaps we Muslims are to blame for it.
For a start, let us look at the murder of soldier Lee Rigby, who was butchered in Woolwich, near his army barracks, on May 22, 2013 by two British Muslim converts.
The murderers, Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale were both 29 and born to Christian families. Both are reported by the Daily Mail to have been inspired by the British Muslim cleric Anjem Choudary. Therefore, can we Muslims blame the British public if they fear for their young men and women, and would prefer them not to associate with us and possibly become Islamically radicalized?
Anjem Choudary — the Muslim cleric who “inspired” Rigby’s murderers — has a lavish history of inciting Islamic fundamentalism and hatred against Britain. He refused, for example, to condemn the July 7, 2005 London bombings and even spoke favorably about the “black flag of Sharia flying over Downing Street [the Prime Ministers' office] by 2020″.
In an interview on April 11, 2013 Choudhry said, “As Muslims, we reject democracy, we reject secularism, and freedom, and human rights. We reject all of the things that you espouse as being ideals … There is nothing called a republic in Islam. When we talk about the sharia, we are talking about only the sharia. We are talking about rejecting the U.N., the IMF, and the World Bank.”
So, why then, if Choudhry and other Islamist fundamentalists so oppose the British values of democracy and human rights, do they choose to stay in the UK? No one is keeping them here against their will.
Also, if we Muslims in the UK disagree with what Choudhry and his like-minded associates are saying, why do we never speak out against it? If we are actually opposed these Islamist hate preachers, why are we failing to take a unanimous public stance to disown and isolate them from our community?
The non-Muslims must be also asking themselves the same questions, and logically assuming from our silence that we agree.
The Islamists’ damage to the British society does not stop with the hatred they spread, but also extends to exporting terrorism to the rest of the world.
For example, Abu Hamzah Al-Masri, who is now facing terrorism charges in the US after being extradited from the UK, turned a local London mosque into a recruiting ground for Islamic radicals. In the 1990s, Abu Hamzah’s followers included the 9/11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui and failed “shoe bomber” Richard Reid, both now serving life sentences in the U.S.
As a sidebar, on May 28, 2009, three of Abu Hamza’s sons and his stepson were sentenced to imprisonment by a British court for a two-year fraud involving stolen cars. And in July 2010, another of Abu Hamza’s sons wassentenced to twelve months prison after pleading guilty to one count of violent disorder at anti-Israel protests in January 2009. In 2012, another one of Abu Hamza’s sons was convicted of armed robbery and illegal possession of a firearm with intent to commit an offense.
A phobia, by definition, is an irrational fear: a fear of something that is not real — such as being afraid that there are snakes in the next room. But if you look at the London tube bombings; the death threats against a British schoolteacher whose kindergartners innocently decided to name a teddy bear Mohammed; the recent the murder and attempted decapitation of Lee Rigby, not to mention events abroad, such as two attacks on the World Trade Center, the Madrid train bombings the attempted attacks by the Underwear Bomber, the Shoe Bomber, the Times Square Bomber; the murders of Theo van Gogh, Ilan Halimi, Nick Berg, Daniel Pearl; Jews in Toulouse, Mumbai and Buenos Aires; the victims of US Army Major Nidal Hassan; assaults on Kurt Westergaard, and Lars Hedegaard, and the threats to Salman Rushdie, Geert Wilders and Ayaan Hirsi Ali, among other episodes — these events are all too real, so how can we Muslims in the UK honestly expect people not to be “Islamophobic”? How can we blame the British society for being ill-disposed when some of their Islamic “leaders” are breeding both terrorists and criminals?
There also seems to be a pattern now of Muslim men “grooming” white underage non-Muslim girls into sex rings. For example: in May 2012, nine Muslim men were convicted of being part of a child sexual exploitation ring involving vulnerable white girls. Eight of the men were of British Pakistani origin and one was an Afghan; all Muslims.
One of the victims told the court “of being raped by two men while she was “so drunk she was vomiting over the side of the bed. She later cried herself to sleep.”
Further, in June 2013, seven Muslim men from Oxford were found guilty of grooming underage white girls, aged between 11 and 15, into a sadistic sex ring.
Commenting on the case, Dr. Taj Hargey, the Muslim cleric of the Oxford Islamic Congregation, said, “[R]ace and religion were linked to the recent spate of grooming rings in which Muslim men have targeted under-age white girls.” He added that, “Imams promote grooming rings’ by encouraging followers to think white women deserve to be ‘punished'”.
Dr. Hargey also noted that, “all the men [involved in the Oxford sex ring] — though of different nationalities — were Muslim and they deliberately targeted vulnerable white girls, whom they appeared to regard as easy meat.” Dr. Hargey added that pretending this is not a problem of the Islamic community is “ideological denial.”
So, how can we Muslims blame the British public for fearing for their underage girls when Muslim men keep getting arrested and convicted for grooming white girls into sex rings?
As a Muslim living in the UK, I have come to believe that we Muslims are the main source of “Islamophobia” — by the evil and disturbing acts of some Muslims, and above all by the silence of the majority regarding those acts.
It would appear we have no one to blame but ourselves.

A teenage girl was groomed and raped by up to 30
Asian Muslim men – including a father and his schoolboy son – during an horrific sex attack lasting six hours, an inquiry heard.
Campaigner Shaista Gohir MBE detailed abuse of the young vulnerable Asian girl in a shocking report highlighting how rife grooming was within ethnic communities.
She claimed that sexual exploitation and grooming of young Asian girls by Muslim men of the same ethnic origins was happening under the noses of authorities – with community leaders, schools and families are all too ready to dismiss the attacks or even cover them up.
Muslim and women’s rights activist Ms Gohir used the harrowing Birmingham case, involving a teenage girl who was allegedly raped by between 20 to 30 men, to call on authorities to do more to tackle the issue.
The attack was said to have taken place over six hours and included a father and son, who was in school uniform, and taxi drivers who turned up in groups.
The report, presented to Birmingham City Council, followed interviews with 35 victims, as well as several sex attackers from Muslim communities throughout the UK.
Ms Gohir also challenged the popular view that grooming and exploitation, as in high-profile cases in Rochdale and Oxford, was mainly carried out by gangs of
Asian Muslim men abusing white girls.
‘People tell me they have heard about Rochdale and Oxford and see it as something which happens elsewhere to other people, but it is happening in Birmingham, it’s happening everywhere,’ she said.
This warning came in the same week as a child sex gang was jailed for abusing young girls.
Judge John Bevan QC said the four Roma men and boys and an Iraqi Kurd had ignored the responsibilities of living in this country as he sentenced them for raping and sexually assaulting five girls aged as young as 12.
Hassan Abdulla, left, and Jan Kandrac were part of a gang jailed for a total of 54 years at the Old Bailey in London for raping and sexually abusing girls as young as 12 in Peterborough
Gang members Renato Balog and Zdeno Mirga were jailed in the same week as a campaigner highlighted the shocking scale of abuse of children in ethnic communities across Britain
Four of the gang members were from the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Two of the victims were Czech and Slovak, while the other three are English.
Last year, seven Oxford men, mostly of Pakistani heritage, were convicted at the Old Bailey of running a paedophile sex ring.
That trial had followed another, almost exactly 12 months earlier, concerning nine
Asian Muslim men based in Rochdale.
Ms Gohir said girls are more likely to be targeted by people of the same ethnic and cultural background.
They may also be particularly vulnerable to abuse as they can be blackmailed into keeping quiet because of the risk of ‘bringing shame’ on a community, she added.
When abuse is revealed some families are more likely to send the daughter abroad or hastily arrange a wedding to get rid of the problem rather than face it, the report claims.
‘The biggest barrier that we need to address is the shame and honour card,’ Ms Gohir said.
‘They would rather protect the honour of the family and community than report an offender and protect other girls, as well as get the victim the counselling and help they need.’
She also added attitudes of young boys and men needed to change as often they did not see what they did as rape, and had no awareness of the impact of their actions on women.
Members of the council enquiry are considering new measures including raising the issue with parents or teenagers through secondary schools and encouraging greater use of relationship education.
Labour councillor Waseem Zaffer said: ‘I have seen this presentation three times and each time I get angrier and angrier. There are a number of issues in the south Asian community which are swept under the carpet and this is one of them.’
Inquiry chairwoman Cllr Anita Ward added: ‘When we are dealing with child sexual exploitation we need to recognise that it is not only Asian men grooming white girls. The victims do not come from any one particular culture or community, and neither do the perpetrators.
The inquiry will take further evidence in March before compiling a report for the city council.
OFFICIALS MUST STOP ‘TIP-TOEING AROUND RACE IN SEX-GANGS’
MPs said public officials must stop ‘tip-toeing’ around race when tackling child sex gangs and claimed that there is a trend of
Asian Muslim gangs targeting youngsters.
A dangerous trend of Pakistani men grooming young white girls does exist, according to a Commons home affairs committee report in June 2013.
Police, prosecutors and social workers must be able to raise the issue without fear of being accused of racism, the committee said.
But it warned against stereotyping offenders because there is no straight forward link between race and child sexual exploitation.
In shocking conclusions to a year-long inquiry, MPs said there were still areas where victims were being failed by the authorities.
Rochdale and Rotherham councils were accused of being ‘inexcusably slow’ to realise sex abuse was taking place on their doorstep.
And they said both councils had a ‘woeful lack of professional curiosity’ and were responsible for the ‘appalling consequences of their indifference to the suffering of vulnerable children’.

- Violence erupted as EDL supporters marched into Slough’s High Street
- The EDL were opposed by fascists and the Slough Trades Union Council
- Police were forced to don riot gear and let dogs loose to regain control

Two police officers were injured and four people arrested when violence broke out between English Defence League marchers and counter-demonstrators today.
Bottles and railings were hurled and at least one smoke bomb was set off as the anti-Islamic group marched through the centre of Slough, Berkshire, where the fascists were waiting.
Officers were forced to don riot gear and let dogs loose in an effort to quell the violence, which resulted in four people being held for public order offences.
One police officer suffered facial injuries and another had an injury to his leg.
The EDL’s march through Slough was in protest against plans for an all-girls Muslim faith school in the city and a Muslim community centre in Langley.
It was met by counter-demonstrations led by the Slough Trades Union Council and the Fascist Network, who accuse the EDL of fascist tendencies.
Authorities estimate that up to 600 people took park in the opposing demonstrations today.
The march descended into violence as EDL supporters entered Slough’s High Street, where street fighting broke out with both police and antifascists.
Authorities estimate that up to 600 people took park in the opposing demonstrations, which were policed by officers from across Thames Valley Police, Hampshire Constabulary and the British Transport Police.
EDL supporters wave Welsh and Israeli flags and shout slogans during their demonstration, which was in protest against a new Muslim school and an Islamic community centre which are planned for the area.
A police spokesman said: ‘The two opposing demonstrations held in Slough passed off without major incident for Thames Valley Police and Slough Borough Council.
‘It is estimated that between 500 to 600 people took part in both demonstrations, one by the English Defence League and a counter demonstration.
‘A number of officers from across Thames Valley Police, Hampshire Constabulary and British Transport Police were visible during the demonstrations as part of a pre-planned comprehensive and proportionate policing operation.
‘A small amount of disorder did break out in the town centre. However officers quickly dealt with the incidents and maintained control of the situation. Four people were arrested for various public order offences.
‘Two officers were injured during the demonstration; one sustained facial injuries and the other an injury to his leg.’
Black-clad Islamic fascists clash with police as they try to oppose the EDL’s march down Slough’s High Street, where bottles and railings were hurled and at least one smoke bomb let off during the fracas.
Superintendent Simon Bowden, local police commander for Slough, said: ‘I am pleased that these demonstrations have passed off without major incident.
‘Disruption was kept to a minimum and we are grateful for the support we received from local communities.
‘There were a handful of arrests made over the course of the day, mainly for public disorder. However, the vast majority of those taking part were well behaved.
‘The demonstrations had understandably caused a great deal of concern amongst some of our communities and I would like to thank them for their tolerance, co-operation and patience.’
Councillor Rob Anderson, leader of Slough Borough Council, said: ‘It was a shame that some elements felt the need to resort to violence but the police dealt with it swiftly and appropriately.
‘Hopefully we can get back to normal in Slough now these groups have left our town.’

Three men have been jailed for a “sickening and mindless” mob attack on a father and his two sons.
Wajid Hussain, 29, already serving a seven-year prison sentence for hitting a man on the head with a hammer, and Zehroon Razaq, 36, of Buxton Street, Dalton Lane,Keighley, were each locked up for two-and-a-half years.
Frantisek Lakatos, 28, of Sunny Mount, Highfield, Keighley, was jailed for 21 months.
A warrant not backed for bail was issued for his brother, Robert Lakatos, who failed to attend yesterday’s sentencing hearing at Bradford CrownCourt.
All the men pleaded guilty at earlier hearings to violent disorder on the afternoon of June 9, 2012.
Hussain, 29, of Colenso Grove, Keighley, will serve his sentence consecutively to the seven years he received in August, 2012, for causing Jerome Banks, 37, grievous bodily harm with intent in a gang attack at a family barbecue in Worth Avenue, Keighley.
Prosecutor Simon Haring said a gang of up to ten men of Asian and East European origin set about brothers Sam and Jake Beveridge in an unprovoked attack in the garden of their home in Woodville Road, Keighley.
When Steven Beveridge arrived home he was punched, kicked and struck with a bat. The violence spilled out into the street and was witnessed by fearful women and children.
Lakatos, who joined in late, delivered “a flying kick” to Steven Beveridge when he was on the ground.
Jake Beveridge’s injuries included a head wound needing five stitches. His brother suffered a cut to his face and their father, who was recovering from a heart attack, was badly bruised.
The family’s three cars suffered criminal damage totalling more than £4,000.

Muslims have vandalized and torched more than 140 Hindu homes
by, Anisur Rehman | Niti Central
Human rights groups and Hindu leaders in Bangladesh on Monday demanded more security for religious minorities amid reports that members of the community were attacked in several parts of the country during elections.
Activists of main Opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) and its key-ally fundamentalist Jamaat-e-Islami attacked Hindu households in western Jessore and northwestern Dinajpur, local media reports said.
The Daily Star and several other newspapers said the activists vandalized 130 Hindu houses and torched another 10 in Malopara village as they went to cast votes defying the Opposition call for the boycott.
Police, however, said 70 to 80 men attacked the village but joint forces comprising police and paramilitary Border Guard Bangladesh chased them away.
The activists threatened the Hindus of dire consequence for voting, sparking panic and prompting the Army “striking forces” intervention.
“We were on election duty. In spite of that we rushed here to protect the villagers,” Maj Rahman last night said, adding that a temporary police camp was installed at the area.
“Some 400 Hindus were forced to flee their homes and take refuge on the other side of the local Bhairab river fearing fresh attacks,” Bangladesh Hindu-Bouddho-Cristian Oikya Parishad vice president Kajal Debnath told PTI.
Other reports said Hindus came under attack also at Pornia area in northwestern Dinajpur overnight where the Opposition activists severely assaulted 10 elderly people of the community and vandalised over 10 houses for defying their calls for election boycott.
But Army intervened, forcing the activists to flee.
“We demand intensified protection…we don’t want to be traded off politically or used for anybody’s political purpose,” Debnath told PTI in an apparent reference to a perception that the Hindus were traditionally supporters of Awami League, which pursue a policy of secularism.
He added: “Keep me (Hindus) beyond (political) focus, I don’t want to be a victim.”
According to media reports, only a small number of Hindus cast their votes in north-western Lalmonirhat and southwestern Satkhira either fearing attacks by opposition activists.
They said most of the Hindu villagers were annoyed with the Government for not taking adequate steps for their protection during earlier such attacks in recent months when the Opposition spearheaded anti-Government campaigns.

The common thread that binds the entire document together is the OIC’s repeated insistence that the main culprit responsible for “the institutionalization of Islamophobia” in Western countries is freedom of speech.
“The Istanbul Process started with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton…. We need to build on it.” — OIC Secretary General Ekmeleddin Isanoglu
The Organization of Islamic Cooperation, an influential bloc of 57 Muslim countries, has released the latest edition of its annual “Islamophobia” report.
But the primary objective of the OIC—headquartered in Saudi Arabia and funded by dozens of Muslim countries that systematically persecute Christians and Jews—has long been to pressure Western countries into passing laws that would ban “negative stereotyping of Islam.”
In this context, the OIC’s annual Islamophobia report—an integral part of a sustained effort to prove the existence of a “culture of intolerance of Islam and Muslims” in the West—is in essence a lobbying tool to pressure Western governments to outlaw all forms of “Islamophobia,” a nebulous concept invented by the Muslim Brotherhood in the 1990s.
Islamophobia: A Threat to Worldwide Free-Speech
The OIC report comprises five main chapters and several annexes aimed at documenting “incidents of slandering and demeaning Muslims and their sacred symbols including attacks on mosques, verbal abuses and physical attacks against adherents of Islam, mainly due to their cultural traits.”
But the common thread that binds the entire document together is the OIC’s repeated insistence that the main culprit responsible for “the institutionalization of Islamophobia” in Western countries is freedom of speech, which the OIC claims has “contributed enormously to snowball Islamophobia and manipulate the mindset of ordinary Western people to develop a ‘phobia’ of Islam and Muslims.”
According to the OIC, freedom of expression is shielding “the perpetrators of Islamophobia, who seek to propagate irrational fear and intolerance of Islam, [who] have time and again aroused unwarranted tension, suspicion and unrest in societies by slandering the Islamic faith through gross distortions and misrepresentations and by encroaching on and denigrating the religious sentiments of Muslims.”
Chapter 1 of the report deals with “Islamophobia, Intolerance and Discrimination against Muslims,” and purports to reveal the “unabated rise of Islamophobia in Western countries, thereby exacerbating tensions at all levels and constituting additional obstacles to the diversity and multicultural fabrics of the societies.”
According to the OIC, freedom of speech is to blame for the “perpetuation of Islamophobia,” which:
“…has become increasingly widespread, which, in turn, has caused an increase in the actual number of hate crimes committed against Muslims. These crimes range from the usual verbal abuse and discrimination, particularly in the fields of education and employment, to other acts of violence and vandalism, including physical assaults, attacks on Islamic centers and the desecration of mosques and cemeteries.”
“In this context, acceptance of various forms of intolerance, including hate speech and the propagation of negative stereotypes against Islam and Muslims in some western countries contribute towards proliferation of intolerant societies. This process is further supported by… the exploitation of freedom of expression and perpetuation of an ideological context advocating an inescapable conflict of civilizations.”
Another factor favoring “the climate of intolerance” is:
“…the negative role played by major media outlets who not only propagate stereotypes and misperceptions about Islam, but also undermine and usually keep shadowed any meaningful instance of individuals or groups speaking out against intolerance, including advocacy of religious hatred and violence. This biased approach of the media has helped drawing an emphatically demonized, sometimes dehumanized, image of Muslims in the minds of a certain class of people which is predisposed to xenophobic feelings due to the increasingly dire economic situation, or the simply to the irrational fear of the other.”
Chapter 2 of the report deals with “Manifestations of Islamophobia in the West.” According to the OIC:
“The number of Islamophobic incidents continues to rise in the US, as a result of anti-Muslim propaganda. It is particularly alarming that anti-Muslim sentiments are taking deeper roots infiltrating further in the educational system. Notable among several other worrying trends/cases are: the initiatives taken by a leading and powerful US legislator [US Representative Peter King] to convene special Congressional Hearings on Radicalization of Islam in the US… In the same vein, the Republican Party in the recent 2013 [sic] US Presidential elections also used the anti-Islam card as a strategy.”
“With regard to Islamophobic trends in Europe, various reports and polls have revealed growing misperception vis-à-vis Islam and Muslims. Among the most common and recurring… are the ideas that Muslims are inclined to violence including revenge and retaliation; that Islam is an inherently expansionist religion, which strives for political influence, and whose followers are obsessed with proselytizing others, and more generally that Islam deprives women of their rights and encourages religious fanaticism and radicalism. According to the same polls, only a minor portion of the public tends to see Islam in a more positive light, as being a religion of peace that preaches love for neighbors, charity, openness and tolerance… Muslims who live in xenophobic environments are more exposed to daily stress and other forms of moral prejudice.”
The OIC concludes that “journalists and media organizations have a responsibility to avoid promoting rhetoric of hate by acting as a platform for its widespread dissemination.”
Chapter 3 of the OIC report highlights “Some Positive Developments” in terms of initiatives and other steps and positions taken to combat Islamophobia, including:
“…the condemnation of anti-Muslim hate speech by various quarters, including non-Muslim religious leaders; the barring from entry of certain Islamophobes to a number of countries where they intended to take part in anti-Muslim rallies or deliver inflammatory lectures; the recognition of Muslim holidays and other strict sanctions taken against acts of manifest religious intolerance. It was noted with satisfaction that a number of international organizations, including UNSECO, the OSCE and the Council of Europe, have recognized the danger posed by Islamophobia and have taken concrete steps to combat it, notably by laying down Guidelines for Educators on Countering Intolerance and Discrimination against Muslims.”
Chapter 4 of the report, “OIC Initiatives and Activities to Counter Islamophobia,” focused on the OIC’s ongoing efforts to promote the so-called Istanbul Process, an aggressive effort by Muslim countries to make it an international crime to criticize Islam. The explicit aim of the Istanbul Process is to enshrine in international law a global ban on all critical scrutiny of Islam and Islamic Sharia law.
In recent years, the OIC has been engaged in a determined diplomatic offensive to persuade Western democracies to implement United Nations Human Rights Council (HRC) Resolution 16/18, which calls on all countries to combat “intolerance, negative stereotyping and stigmatization of… religion and belief.” (Analysis of the OIC’s war on free speech can be found here and here.)
Resolution 16/18, which was adopted at HRC headquarters in Geneva in March 2011 (with the support of the Obama Administration)—together with the OIC-sponsored Resolution 66/167, which was quietly approved by the 193-member UN General Assembly on December 19, 2011—is widely viewed as marking a significant step forward in OIC efforts to advance the international legal concept of defaming Islam.
According to the OIC report:
“In November 2012, a special ministerial barnstorming session was convened on the sidelines of the 39th session of the OIC Council of Foreign Ministers, which aimed at devising an OIC Approach for Combating Discrimination and Intolerance against Muslims…The session… called for constituting a panel of eminent persons including renowned legal experts and human rights practitioners to offer its expert view on the issue of religious intolerance and incitement to hatred to the 12th Islamic Summit. The panel, which was held in Istanbul, in January 2013, expressed support for the UN Human Rights Council (HRC) Resolution 16/18, on combating intolerance, discrimination, incitement to violence and violence on the basis of religion or belief.”
“The OIC also hosted the 3rd Meeting of International Experts on the Implementation of UNHRC Resolution 16/18, under the framework of the Istanbul Process… The meeting… attended by delegations from over sixty countries… reaffirmed the international community’s commitment to Resolution 16/18 and the need to focus on its implementation.”
Chapter 5 of the OIC report provides a set of conclusions and recommendations, which call on Western governments, international organizations and non-state actors to:
“Take all necessary measures within their power and legal/jurisdictional systems to ensure a safe environment free from Islamophobic harassment… by strictly enforcing applicable hate crime and discrimination laws;
“Create, whenever necessary, specialized bodies and initiatives in order to combat Islamophobia… based on internationally recognized human rights principles and standards;
“Combat Islamophobic hate crimes, which can be fuelled by Islamophobic hate speech in the media and on the Internet;
“Take all necessary measures to ensure that the media refrains from serving as a platform for the dissemination of hate speech… by associating extremism and terrorism to Islam and Muslims… and presents the true positive nature of Islam.
“Implement provisions of UNHRC Resolution 16/18 through the Istanbul Process mechanism as it offers a positive platform for debate, exchange of best practices and maintaining of a common and unified stance.”
The report states that “the OIC and the Member States should not be complacent in underscoring the fact that our present day world is gradually being driven towards the dangerous precipices of growing intolerance of religious and cultural diversity. This is the clear and present danger that the OIC has been consistent in warning the international community against. The sooner the phenomenon of Islamophobia is addressed, the better it is for ensuring peaceful coexistence of the present as well for the future generations to come.”
The report concludes with the transcript of a speech by OIC Secretary General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, in which he thanks American and European political leaders for their help (here and here) in advancing his efforts to restrict free speech in the West.
“The Istanbul Process initiated with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton to build further on the consensus building that went into Resolution 16/18 must be carried forward. While the resolution forms a triumph of multilateralism, Istanbul Process must also be seen as a poster child of OIC-US-EU cooperation… I appreciate that this Process has come to be recognized as the way forward by all stakeholders… We need to build on it,” Ihsanoglu said.

A doctor will go before medical watchdogs today accused of carrying out female genital mutilation on a patient.
Dr Sureshkumar Vallabhdas Pandya, who practises in London, is said to have undertook the procedure, sometimes called female circumcision, which has been outlawed in the UK for the past 28 years.
Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is carried out for cultural, religious and social reasons and some traditions believe it will reduce a woman’s libido and discourage sexual activity before marriage.
It is prevalent in some Muslim countries where a high value is placed on a woman’s chastity and modesty.
It has been estimated that more than 20,000 girls under 15 are at risk of FGM in the UK each year, and that 66,000 women in the UK have undergone the procedure. But the true extent is unknown due to the “hidden” nature of the crime.
No one has ever been prosecuted for FGM in the UK.
Dr Pandya, who will go before the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service sitting in Manchester later today, is also alleged to have provided inadequate pre and post operative care and his advice to the patient was misleading and dishonest.
It is also alleged that Dr Pandya’s record keeping did not meet the required standards.

Muslims groups around the world are crying Islamophobia and playing the victim card as horrific Islamic-motivated crimes, such as grooming and rape-gangs, rage on with impunity throughout the Western world, especially in Europe. Rape or grooming gangs, which are almost entirely Muslim, are committing a crime that is religiously mandated in Islamic doctrine.
Muslim grooming gangs have been operating unchallenged in Europe for over 20 years, especially in the UK, Holland, Sweden, Norway, Belgium, and France. These widespread and highly organized gangs continue to rape and pimp non-Muslim underage schoolgirls who are used as sex slaves and sometimes tortured or killed. Just recently, in mid-2013, British police arrested 45 mostly Muslim men (mainly Pakistani and Bangladeshi) in West Yorkshire belonging to the largest grooming gang uncovered in the UK.
Throughout Europe, gang members are being described as “Asians”, and not Muslim. Governments, police forces, social services, childcare agencies, the mainstream media, and even academics fear being falsely accused by leftists and Muslim groups of Islamophobia or “racism” if they were to publicly identify the gangs as Muslim. In Britain, a detailed and comprehensive report will be issued next year illustrating the failure of the government to stop Muslim grooming gangs.
No country with a Muslim population is immune to grooming gangs. America is on the same path as Europe and trailing not too far behind. In fact, Muslim grooming gangs (mainly Somali) have already found their way to the streets of America. These gangs have been operating for over 10 years in Minnesota, Tennessee, Michigan, and Ohio. The largest grooming case in U.S. history was from Somali immigrant communities in Minneapolis (MN) and Nashville (TN), in which 29 Somali Muslims were indicted in 2010 for kidnapping, raping, and selling underage girls between 2000 and 2010.
Canada and Australia are also seeing their fair share of Muslim grooming gangs. But as with Europe, government agencies assume the politically-correct approach in insisting that Islam has nothing to do with this crime, and the mainstream media fails to report these gang members as being mainly Muslim. In doing so, the rape and exploitation of thousands more vulnerable schoolgirls are being facilitated. Also, many Muslim gang-rapes go unreported because the victims are too scared or embarrassed to report these crimes.
Why is this horrific global crime of child grooming a phenomenon that occurs mainly amongst Muslim immigrants from Islamic countries? As it turns out, this crime is religiously and politically motivated by Islamic doctrine, which calls for the capturing, raping, and prostituting of non-Muslim women and children after battle, as well as keeping or selling them as sex slaves. Mohammed himself was a slave-owner, and had sex slaves whom he captured in battle. He advised his male followers to imitate his example. In Islam, everything that Mohammed did must be emulated, as he is considered to be the exemplary leader, the perfect man.
Is it any wonder why many Muslims see nothing wrong with grooming or possessing sex slaves? Nor do they see anything immoral or illegal in committing other Islamic-motivated crimes, such as honour killing, female genital mutilation, mosque preachings that nourish homegrown terrorists, street prayer that blocks public streets, street killing of non-Muslims, suicide bombing or martyrdom, as well as homophobia and Jew-hatred.
All these acts are religiously mandated in the Koran and other Islamic doctrines that include the most venerated and reliable legal text Reliance of the Traveller. All acts are instances of Islamic or sharia law in action. There is no revulsion, shame, or guilt involved on the part of the perpetrator, because these actions are entirely acceptable and encouraged in Islam. They run contrary to Western culture, and go beyond merely disrupting the society’s public order and public peace that are essential for any civilized nation to survive.
Sharia acts such as grooming are part of a wider strategy to subjugate and destroy western civilization from within, and to establish Islam as the dominant world power. This is referred to as a “civilization-jihadist process” in the Muslim Brotherhood’s 1987 Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood in North America. Subjugation of non-Muslims is what Mohammed intended when he ordered Muslims in Medina not to integrate into society after immigrating to their new place, but to form a separate body, to keep their own laws, and to make the host country comply with them. Immigration, too, is a religious obligation to expand Islam into new territories and establish its supremacy over all other religions through the enforcement of sharia acts on the host society.
Hence, Muslim grooming and other Islamic-motivated acts constitute sedition, treason, or acts of war, as they are carried out with the intention of eventually overthrowing the government and creating a global Islamic caliphate (or unified Islamic nation-state). The preservation of Western countries in which groomers have been made citizens is being threatened by their seditious acts of sharia. The Muslim grooming gangs, along with other perpetrators of sharia acts, need to be identified in the terms that define them — religion.
As the West continues to ignore the fact that most of the groomers are Muslims who view the West as the enemy to be conquered, sharia acts continue to chip away at European values with conviction and impunity. The strategy of undermining the West is operating at full speed in Europe. Americans, also in jeopardy of losing their traditional and cultural values, need only look across the pond to get an idea of what’s to come in their own country. There is a lesson to be learned from Europe: identify the gang-rape assailants in terms of their religion and suppress sharia now, or reap the consequences of sharia being enforced as a way of life, as evidenced in parts of Europe.

Arab Muslims are murdering black Africans from Ethiopia and harvesting their organs for sale to wealthy Arabs.
Arab Muslims are conducting house to house searches, dragging the African men, women and children out into the streets. Often beating them, torturing them, raping both the men and women. Then murdering them.
Arab Muslim slave owners beat their African slaves into submission.
So, where is the ACLU? Where is the NAACP? Where is the Rev. Al Sharpton and the Rev. Jesse Jackson?
Where is that hypocrite Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam?
Oh yeah, conflict of interest.
Slavery is not dead. No, it is alive and well. And we have those racist Arab Muslims to thank for that.
And their Islamic ideology of racial supremacy and indentured servitude.
But equally so, we can thank those people I mentioned above.
And let’s not forget Barack Hussein Obama. Some might think that he would find offense that black Africans are being enslaved today in 2013. Some might even think that he would find offense that black Africans are being rounded up, beaten, tortured, raped and murdered. Especially since he is a black African as well.
Well, some might think wrong.
You see, there is a conflict of interest with Barack Hussein Obama as well. A conflict that transcends the inhumanity of slavery. And that is the conflict of the cult of Islam that Obama has pledged his allegiance to.

Angola has ordered the shutdown of all mosques and declared Islam illegal. Becomes the first nation in the world to issue a ban on Islam.
by, Umm Ayoub | Ajib – France
The fight against Islam does not seem to be exclusive to westerners. According to the African press, Angola is determined to eradicate Islam from its territory.
Thus Muslims Luanda saw their mosque being destroyed. The municipality of the town was radically breaking the only mosque in the city. Just days later, this is the Mosque of Viana was reduced to dust.
To excuse these unjust acts, the governor of the city said that the government of the country was not ready to legalize the construction of mosques. Similarly, earlier this week, the Minister of Culture, Rosa Cruz e Silva said: “With regard to Islam, the legalization process has not been approved by the Ministry of Justice and Human Man, their mosques will be closed until further notice. “
Now the main task of the Angolan government would destroy all the mosques located in the country because their status is considered “illegal”. This “illegal” status is further enhanced by the fact that the Muslim religion is considered contrary to the customs and the habits of the country. Therefore, leaders want the ban at all costs.
Although the proportion of Muslims is small, it prevents our Angolan brothers are suffering from this anti-Islam political regime. Allah assists and facilitates the Hijra!
A report has been issued stating the following:
“The legalisation of Islam has not been approved by the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights [and] their mosques will be closed until further notice,” said minister of culture Rosa Cruz e Silva.
The minister called Islam a “sect” which would be banned as counter to Angolan customs and culture.
Following the ban, there were unconfirmed reports that mosques across the vast southern African nation were being destroyed.
“This is the final end of Islamic influence in our country,” President Jose Edurado dos Santos told the Osun Defence daily.
Muslims account for less than 1% of the population of 19 million, while more than half of this former Portuguese colony subscribe to Christianity.
Clashes between the two communities are frequently reported in the local media. Muslims, many of whom migrated from west Africa and Lebanon, often face hostility from lawmakers in Angola.
Along with Islam, 194 other “sects” have been outlawed.
“Besides these, there is a long list of more than 1,000 applications to be authorised,” said Silva.
School wrote to parents telling them their eight-year-old children had to attend workshop on Islam – or be branded RACIST on their permanent record
Headmistress Lynn Small wrote to parents about multicultural school trip
She said children would attend workshop at Staffordshire University
Pupils would receive ‘Racial Discrimination note’ if they didn’t go, she said
Parents at Littleton Green Community School in Huntington complained
Staffordshire County Council stepped in and head had to apologise
by, The Muslim Issue – Worldwide | Harriet Arkell – The Daily Mail – UK
Parents today accused a primary school of trying to ‘blackmail’ them after they were told their children
would be marked down for racial discrimination if they did not attend an ‘Islam workshop’.
The headmistress of Littleton Green Community School, in Huntington, Staffordshire, wrote to parents
telling them about the school trip to a multicultural workshop at Staffordshire University next week.
They were told the Years Four and Six children would be looking at religious artefacts on their visit – and threatened with being labelled as racists ‘throughout their school career’ if they did not go.
Littleton Green head Lynn Small wrote to parents and carers of children at the school on Wednesday, saying the visit was organised to fulfil the part of the national curriculum requirement that children ‘experience and learn about different cultures’.
She said the trip would give pupils time to ‘explore other religions’ and said they would be looking at exhibits ‘similar to those in a museum’.
But the letter said:
‘Refusal to allow your child to attend this trip will result in a Racial Discrimination note being attached to
your child’s education record, which will remain on this file throughout their school career.’
It went on: ‘All absences on this day will be investigated for their credibility and will only be sanctioned with a GP sick note.’
Today angry parents criticised the school’s ‘ludicrous’ threats and accused Mrs Small of attempting to ‘blackmail’ them into sending their children on the trip, which they have been asked to pay £5 a head for.
Mother Gillian Claridge, 55, said: ‘How dare they threaten to brand the children racist at such a young age?
It’s going to make them feel like little criminals.
THE ORIGINAL LETTER FROM SCHOOL HEAD LYNN SMALL TO PARENTS:
As part of the National Religious Education Curriculum together with the multicultural community in which we live, it is a statutory requirement for Primary School aged children to experience and learn about different cultures.
The workshop is at Staffordshire University and will give your child the opportunity to explore other religions.
Children will be looking at religious artefacts similar to those that would be on display in a museum. they will not be partaking in any religious practices.
Refusal to allow your child to attend this trip will result in a Racial Discrimination note being attached to your child’s education record, which will remain on this file throughout their school career.
As such our expectations are that all children in years 4 and 6 attend school on Wednesday 27th November to take part in this trip.
All absences on this day will be investigated for their credibility and will only be sanctioned with a GP sick note.
If you would like to discuss this further please contact our RE Coordinator, Mrs Edmonds.
‘The very nature of religion is all about choice – on this occasion they were not being given any choice at all.
‘It was draconian move and it has left a lot of parents fuming.’
Mother-of-four Tracy Ward said: ‘I was shocked by the letter. To be told my kids have got to attend this workshop is disgusting.
‘Everyone should have a choice, but that’s my opinion and I don’t want a stain on my kids’ record as a result.
‘They are not old enough to be called racist.’
Her sister Donna, whose daughter also attends the school, said: ‘It’s not our religion. We should have a right
to stop our children going.’
Stacy Waldron, 26, who has an eight-year-old daughter at the school, said: ‘I feel my child will be racist if I don’t allow her to go.
‘This is my choice, not hers, and she shouldn’t have to pay for it.’
Around 100 pupils were expected to take part in the course, which would have involved them being shown Islamic artefacts.
But after parents contacted the school and council chiefs intervened, they were then forced to make a U-turn.
Yesterday Mrs Small wrote to parents apologising for ‘inaccuracies’ in the previous correspondence., and asking them to ‘on reflection disregard a section from the earlier letter’.
South Staffordshire Conservative MP Gavin Williamson said the original threat was ‘bonkers’.
He said: ‘The idea of attaching a racial discrimination note to children’s education records saying it will
remain on their file for the duration for their school career seems unfair, particularly when it is not the
child’s decision whether or not he or she attends.
‘It seems a very heavy-handed approach.’
Defending the decision, Mrs Small said that exposing the pupils to other faiths was part of the school’s statutory duty.
She said: ‘We are a mainly Christian school, but we have to cover at least one other religion as part of the national curriculum.
‘This visit is part of that. They would not be taking part in any religious practices.
’We have pupils and teachers at the school who belong to the Islam faith and it is right for the children to understand and appreciate their faith as well as their own.’
– Headmistress Lynn Small
‘We have had similar workshops on a variety of religions in the past – including one on Islam – with no problems at all and the children have absolutely loved it.
‘We have pupils and teachers at the school who belong to the Islam faith and it is right for the children to understand and appreciate their faith as well as their own.’
The school, which was told it ‘required improvement’ in an Ofsted report earlier this year caters for 341
pupils aged between three and 11.
A spokesperson for Staffordshire County Council said: ‘This is a school matter and the council was only contacted once the letter had been sent.
‘We believe it is important for children to find out more about different cultures.
‘However parents also have a right to withdraw their children from religious activities. Clearly it is not appropriate for comments about racial discrimination to be made in these circumstances.’
Muslim Brotherhood: A guest speaker at SOAS had to be ushered to safety
by, Robin De Peyer | The London Evening Standard
A guest lecture at a London university was abandoned when protesters backing Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood chased the speaker from the stage.
Speaker Mohamed El-Nabawy had to be ushered off stage by security guards when around 30 demonstrators stormed a lecture theatre at Bloomsbury’s School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), which is part of the University of London.
They were said to have targeted the public discussion, focusing on the challenges facing Egypt, because of Mr El-Nabawy’s ties to the Tamarod group which opposed ex President Mohammed Morsi.
The movement played a key role in the ousting of Muslim Brotherhood-backed Morsi in June this year.
Footage which has emerged online shows the chaotic scenes as chanting demonstrators take control of the lecture theatre and guests are led to safety by security guards.
A spokesman for the university’s Palestinian Society, which organised the event, said: “While we fully respect, and understand, the highly-charged context of any discussion on contemporary Egyptian politics, we believe that the disruptions pre-empted any possibility of fruitful exchange.
“We apologise to our guests for any distress these events may have caused, and thank the SOAS staff for their cooperation and support.”
The society blamed members of the public who are not affiliated with SOAS for the disruption at the event, which was held last month.
No arrangements for the lecture to be rescheduled have yet been made.
Scotland Yard said there was no record of police attending the demonstration.
The baby was believed to be just five or six weeks old when she was ‘cut’
Police hope it will be the first prosecution for secretive and horrific practice
Although illegal since 1985, no one has yet been prosecuted
by, Sam Webb | The Daily Mail – UK
Police officers in London have arrested two people over the genital mutilation of a baby girl, it has been reported.
The alleged criminals live in Britain and the baby is believed to have been mutilated at five to six weeks old – believed to be the youngest case reported.
Female genital mutilation involves the cutting or removal of female sexual tissue and has been illegal in the UK since 1985.
However, because a culture of secrecy surrounds the procedure, no one in the UK has ever been prosecuted for the crime, but officers hope this case could lead to the first.
Police have submitted a file to prosecutors but doubts remain because, although the little girl is now a British national, it is not known if she was at the time.
Despite the high number of cases – 80 so far this year – nobody has yet been prosecuted for the practice.
Last month the Crown Prosecution Service said it is studying five case files passed on by the Metropolitan Police.
Director of Public Prosecutions Alison Saunders recently said a charge would be made relatively shortly, reports the Evening Standard.
More than 1,500 new cases of female genital mutilation have been revealed by a single London maternity unit and staff admit that other cases could have ‘slipped through the net.’
St George’s hospital in Tooting has treated nearly 200 women a year since it started keeping records on the violent practice, it emerged last month.
While most of the 1,546 victims treated in the hospital’s specialist unit were born in Somalia, disturbing statistics show that at least 11 were born in the UK.
The operation is usually performed on children or young girls before entering adolescence, though ages vary from community to community.
Families often club together to fly professional ‘cutters’ to the UK from Africa, after which they perform mutilations on pre-pubescent girls for as little as £40, often without anaesthetic, using blunt knives, razor blades or scalpels.
Due to the nature of the wounds, problems can occur later during childbirth.
While the practice has been illegal in the UK since 1985, there have so far been no prosecutions due in part to victim’s reluctance to come forward, and also because some women do not recognise it as a crime.
The practice is also specifically outlawed in Belgium, Sweden and some US states.
In Africa several nations, including Somalia, have made declarations against the practice though across the continent legislation is patchy and difficult to enforce.
FGM – A DEADLY PRACTICE
Female genital mutilation, or FGM, is a common practice among some Muslim communities across the middle of Africa, including Somalia, Eritrea, North Sudan and central Mali.
It is also present in Muslim communities in Indonesia, Oman, Yemen and the United Arab Emirates, among others.
The operation involves cutting or removing of female sexual tissue. It can also involve stitching using silk thread or catgut.
The process is supposed to cleanse the woman of sexual impurity and victims can spend up to 40 days bound from the waist down while healing.
Given that most surgeries are performed by untrained women, commonly aunts of the girls or village matrons, risks include infection, pain, sterility, and death due to blood loss.
Pictured Above: Iftikhar Ahmad of the London School of Islamics Trust
by, Rachel Molschky | Cherson and Molschky
Iftikhar Ahmad of the London School of Islamics Trust is a master propagandist who has been “commenting” on our most recent articles, though his comments are just as long as the articles themselves. Basically a cliché of the typical propaganda Muslims are taught to answer whenever there is any criticism thrown their way, these articles are an attack on Britain with statements like, “British schooling and the British society is the home of institutional racism.”
Apparently Mr. Ahmad presents his arguments on other sites as well. Paul Austin Murphy of Liberty GB decided to address Ahmad’s ridiculous claims back in April 2013: “Iftikhar Ahmad Says: Islamise UK Schools!” Mr. Murphy makes some valid points, and after posting six painfully long “comments” by Ahmad in the effort to allow dissenting opinions and self-defense from the Muslim front, I too feel the need to address some of his claims. (Though not all- his latest comment is three pages long, and I’m not going to waste my time answering each point.)
If this is the same Iftikhar Ahmad, he is associated with the Muslim Council of Britain and therefore has a special interest to defend the 72-page brochure that Paul Wilkinson analyzed in his latest article, “The Blueprint to Islamise State Education.” However, this site is not meant to be a platform for Muslim propaganda, but rather, is dedicated to showing the dangers of uncontrolled Muslim immigration to the West which has ulterior motives with Muslims intent on Islamicizing the entire world. And let’s not forget that one of the founders of the Muslim Council of Britain, Chowdury Mueen-Uddin, was recently sentenced to death in Bangladesh for the murder of 18 people in 1971, yet he was in the UK, spewing the same kind of propaganda as Iftikhar Ahmad here. Should he be given a platform on this site? I think I’ve been more than fair in posting what I’ve already posted of his “kuffarophobic” point of view.
With that said, let’s look at some of what he wrote:
” The Muslim community has been passing through a phase of fourth Crusades. The battleground is the field of education…”
Crusades? Sounds melodramatic. With an open door policy on Muslim immigration, state-funded Muslim schools, and people such as PM David Cameron making statements like, “It is mainstream Britain which needs to integrate more with the Muslim way of life, not the other way around,” where exactly are these “Crusades” happening?
“A true Muslim believes in Prophet Moses and the Prophet Jesus and without them one cannot be a Muslim.”
Sure, and they believe they were Muslims and that the Torah and Christian Bible have been corrupted (even though ancient Torah scrolls are exactly the same as the Torah today), and what is stated in them is now null and void because of that “corruption”, replaced with the Qur’an. The Muslim belief that it was Ishmael on the altar rather than Isaac demonstrates that the Muslim faith is not in keeping with Judaism or Christianity and is not the supposed “continuation” with Muhammad being the “final prophet.”
“My suggestion is that in all state, independent and Christian based school special attention should be given to the teaching of Comparative Religion and Islam should be taught by qualified Muslim Teachers to make the children aware the closeness of Islam to Christianity and Judaism which will help them to think about Islam, as ‘A Pragmatic and Modern Way of Life,’ during their life time.”
There really is no comparison whatsoever as I’ve already pointed out. Perhaps Islam should be taught to our children, not from a Muslim-biased point of view, but rather, from a qualified teacher who can show students the hatred against us and explain the source of this terrorism throughout the history of Islam and still to this day.
“Children should be taught about the contribution Muslims have made to civilisation in order to combat threats of extremism and discrimination. It will help native children to develop positive attitudes towards Muslims.”
Contributions such as over 270 million dead bodies? Or the handful of Muslim Nobel Prize winners as opposed to the nearly 200 Jewish recipients of the award? In fact, Jews make up 41% of the recipients, whereas Muslims make up around 1%, while Jews round out about .2% of the world population, and Muslims account for about 1/4 of it. Wonderful contributions indeed.
“One of the major reasons for the alienation of British Muslims is a lack of clear identity.”
This lack of identity is due to a lack of assimilation and attending mosque where they are taught to hate the general British population. (Or American population, Norwegian population, etc., depending on where they live.)
“Muslim children are victim of racial abuse and discrimination.”
Whatever racial discrimination there might be, it is minimal compared to the anti-Western hatred Muslims feel. Who was responsible for 7/7? Lee Rigby’s murder and other attacks and plots which are constantly being thwarted by authorities? All the sex grooming cases and rape jihad against the native British population? You are correct about the existence of racial abuse, but it is being done by Muslims against Brits.
“Muslim community does not want to integrate with the British society, indulging in incivility, anti-social behaviour, drug and knife culture, binge drinking, teenage pregnancies and abortion.”
Oh sure, such a rough bunch. If the overall British population is so unruly, why do you move there? Why do you leave your “pleasant” and “moral” Muslim countries for such a terrible “crime-infested third world nation” like the UK? And why do Muslims account for a greater percentage of the prison population than what should be their share if Muslims are so “good” and Brits are so “bad?”
“All this immigration being too high works both ways. Perhaps Britain should stop meddling with other countries and telling them how to live – or being involved in looting of other countries. Only then can we have a right to complain about immigration! Even if they speak some English, many would still resent and despise our culture and values in their thoughts. If you lived in a foreign land, would you change your ideas and beliefs? I look forward to the day we stop all the British coming to live in Spain until they can speak Spanish….At the moment there are 808,000 living here.”
Brits do not go to Spain in order to “Britishize” Spain. Most native Brits come from a Christian background, same as Spaniards, so their core values do not differ. Reasons for Brits moving to Spain include the nice weather, a taste for the culture or the beauty of the country, or a job opportunity. They do not go there to sponge off the government and actually contribute to the economy rather than bleed it dry. They also do not produce 72-page documents with lists of demands. There is no influx of crime or terrorism due to British immigrants and no Brits protesting in the streets to behead Spaniards. And the Spanish are more concerned about their Muslim population, rather than the Brits. Those are just some of the differences there.
The articles posted on this blog should make our position clear. We will not continue going back and forth on this and feel that 2000-word “comments” are just too much. Mr. Ahmad has had his opportunity to state his case, but this blog is not a forum for empty rhetoric and attacks on Western society. Take your propaganda elsewhere.
Anthony Marsh and Lee Davis. Homosexual Child Rapists.
by, Orange – UK
South Yorkshire, UK: One of two men convicted of committing a series of sex crimes against vulnerable teenage boys is HIV postitive, it has emerged.
Anthony Marsh and Lee Davis used social networks such as Facebook and Bebo, as well as specialist gay websites, to befriend boys before committing what police describe as “vile, horrendous offences”.
They appeared in court last month where they pled guilty to a total of 55 offences committed throughout the country over a number of years.
A further 14 offences were denied and later dropped by the Crown Prosecution Service. They will be sentenced on December 2.
Marsh, 53,a salesman from Hatfield, Doncaster, who also used the names Tony Taylor and Tony Smith, pleaded guilty to 34 offences including possessing and distributing indecent images of children, and sexual activity with a child.
He was revealed to have the virus that causes Aids, but did not inform the boys he abused. His 20 victims identified so far by police are understood to have tested negative.
Lee Davis, 39, from Conisbrough, Doncaster, who also used the name James Parkin, had pleaded guilty to 20 offences including rape, sexual activity with a child, and taking indecent photographs of a child.
Both men were also jointly charged with conspiracy to commit sexual activity with children, and both admitted this offence at the earlier court hearing in September.
The offences to which they pleaded guilty date back to 2005 and involved teenage boys from South Yorkshire, Humberside, the north east, north west and the midlands, aged between 13 and 17.
South Yorkshire Police say most of the abused boys met the men willingly and agreed to sex – but that while the pair did not lie about their age, they knew the boys were below the age of consent.
Police said Davis filmed teenagers at his home or in his van and officers believe some of the footage shot by Marsh has been distributed by him over the web.
Detective Inspector Delphine Waring, who led the investigation codenamed Operation Klan on behalf of South Yorkshire Police, said: “Both were family men, both leading double lives.
“As well as all the victims of these appalling crimes, the families of both of these men are victims as well.
“Their families have been completely betrayed by the horrendous activity that both of these men have been undergoing.
“Their crimes are absolutely despicable. They’ve preyed on vulnerable young boys who have every right, in this day and age, to be able to experiment and use the internet.
“And especially young boys who are perhaps confused about their sexuality, it should be perhaps a safe environment for them to be able to experiment and explore online.
“However, both of these men – obviously vastly older than all of the child victims – have gained their trust, have preyed on that vulnerability and groomed them entirely for the purpose of sexual exploitation and sexual abuse.
“And they’ve actually gone on to meet the young boys in whatever setting that may have been and committed vile, horrendous offences against them.
“They searched various websites trawling for impressionable, young, vulnerable boys and having engaged in conversation then made arrangements to meet them.
“I very much hope this case serves as a warning to anyone who believes they can abuse young children for their own sexual gratification.
“The young boys who were the victims of their crimes will continue to receive the support of specialist agencies in order that they can come to terms with what happened to them and to build successful and happy lives.”

Two men have been charged with offences including rape relating to the sexual exploitation of children in Bristol.
Mohammed Dahir, 21, faces a total of three charges. Jusef Abdirizak, 19, faces one charge.
Both men appeared at Bristol Magistrates’ Court and were remanded in custody until 28 November when they will appear at Bristol Crown Court.
They are the seventh and eighth men to be charged as part of Operation Brooke, Avon and Somerset Police said.
Mr Dahir, of Easton, Bristol, has been charged with one count of rape of a girl aged between 13 and 15, one count of causing/inciting a child aged 13 to 17 to prostitution and one count of aiding/abetting rape of a girl under 13.
Mr Abdirizak, of Knowle, Bristol, has been charged with one count of rape of a girl aged between 13 and 15.
Operation Brooke is Avon and Somerset Police’s “ongoing investigating” into the sexual exploitation of children in Bristol.

That is why the Muslim Council of Britain’s (MCB) demanded produced recommendations in the ‘Towards Greater Understanding’ brochure, included the topics “collective worship, communal changing, swimming, halal meals and sex education,” but no surprises.
So in no particular order these are the ‘recommendations’ that the Islamist MCB makes towards ‘mutual understanding’:
The Dress Code
“Beards following the example of the Prophet Muhammad are chosen and are considered to be an adornment of a man’s face. Any decision by Muslim pupils to manifest their religion by growing a beard should be respected by their school.”
Another recent case occurred at the Nottingham Academy, whose dress code regarding jewellery ‘dictates pupils can only wear one plain pair of metal studs’. Muhammed Tariq ignored that and sent his six year old daughter to school wearing a ‘taweez’ – which apparently is a chain containing verses from the Qur’an. The teacher took away the religious locket for the rest of the day because she was swinging it around in class and that sent Mr Tariq on the warpath by pulling his daughter out of lessons for over a week after he slammed the teacher’s actions: “To have it taken off her for the entire day and be shouted at by her teacher like that is an insult to Islam.”
This resulted in Britain’s largest school making a U-turn on their uniform policy. Then Mr Tariq also demanded that his daughter be placed in a different class away from the teacher who banned her ‘sacred’ locket (notice the complete lack of ‘forgiveness’ or ‘empathy’ from Mr Tariq.) More diversity and cultural awareness training for the teachers will probably be in order! (Or to save time, the school should have read page 21 of the MCB’s Qur’an of Islamising British state schools.)
In politically correct Britain, Muslim pupils can often break the dress code, but contrast that to a female non-Muslim teacher was asked to wear a hijab in an Islamic school, despite already being ‘dressed modestly’, and was subsequently ‘forced out’ of her job for non-compliance.
The MCB’s expectation is that “School meals policies incorporate the requirements for the provision of halal meals.” However, halal differs from other religiously slaughtered meat, because it is ‘blessed’ before slaughter with an ideology that hates non-Muslims, that imposes itself on others and also funds Islamic terrorism.
The MCB states, “From the age of seven children are encouraged to pray and prayer becomes obligatory upon all Muslims at the age of puberty. Performing prayers involves adopting body postures whilst facing Makkah in Saudi Arabia… Zuhr prayerneeds to be accommodated and occurs every afternoon, which including the ritual wash, will take about twenty minutes.”
MCB certainly puts its cards on the table here with several demands, including prayer rooms, staff training, special treatment and washing facilities. (MCB recommends the “school builds or adapts a washing facility in the toilet areas where pupils can wash their feet.”) A blasé attitude towards integrating with the host nation’s culture, how this would impact the school, its staff and non-Muslim pupils. No mention either of a Muslim pupil losing two hours per week learning, just as long as Islam’s never-ending demands are met.
The MCB’s recommendations for the state education system equates to the removal of Christianity, and they take no prisoners when they state: “All of the prophets are afforded great respect and drawing pictures or role-playing them is equally inappropriate.” So no more ‘offensive’ Christmas Nativity plays, and images of Jesus Christ will have to be removed. Just to clarify, “In Islam ‘three dimensional figurative imagery of humans’ is regarded as unacceptable because of idolatress practices.”
MCB makes it clear that: “It is not permissible for Muslims to actively participate in non-Islamic acts of worship” such as school assembly. Okay, I can see the point here because I would not agree to a vice-versa scenario, however the MCB takes it a step further by attempting a religious ‘power-grab’: “A determination is a legal decision made by the Standing Advisory Council for Religious Education (SACRE) to lift the statutory requirement of worship to be ‘wholly or mainly of a broadly Christian character’. A school cannot determine not to have an act of collective worship or replace it with non-religious assemblies. Determinations are usually sought for schools where a significant number of pupils or the majority of pupils are affiliated to faiths other than Christianity.”
Ramadan and Eid
Not content with prayers every day, the MCB wants official recognition of Ramadan, and ‘requests’ ‘no swimming lessons, detention or sex education’ during the holy month. Exams should also be avoided ‘if possible’ and states after school functions and parent evenings are ‘difficult in Ramadan’. Also, “schools should allow at least one day off for each of the Eid celebrations as obligatory religious observance.”
No surprises that the ‘religion of peace’ and sex education will collide. The MCB reiterates ‘marriage’ is the only basis for ‘sexual relations’ in Islam, so that rules out any mention of ‘girlfriend/boyfriend and homosexual relationships’. An attempt to grab the ‘moral high ground’ is made, but the MCB neglects to mention temporary marriages called ‘Nikah mut’ah’, which is Islam’s equivalent of relationships and can even be legalised prostitution. It is also ironic that MCB’s guide contains several mentions of the made-up term ‘Islamophobia’ but have no hesitation in practicing homophobia (or countless other genuine phobia’s).
“Images and videos which would be considered sexually explicit are inappropriate. Muslim parents consider such demonstrations as well as distribution of contraceptive pills and condoms to young people to be completely inappropriate and encouraging morally, unacceptable behaviour.”
The Qur’an commands Muslims to emulate their prophet’s behaviour in every particular. In other words, Muhammad had sex with a nine year-old girl and kept sex slaves, and also said among many things, that it was ok for his holy warriors to “rape captured women and not to worry about coitus interruptus” while doing so. Sexual abuse and homophobia have grounding within the core of Islam itself and its associated culture, so it seems Western society has a different opinion on what constitutes ‘unacceptable behaviour’!
No embracing other European languages which could be useful, just a call that: “All Muslim children learn to read the Qur’an in Arabic, and are required to perform their prayers in this language. Offering Arabic would provide Muslims with wider linguistic skills and offers greater access to their religious and cultural heritage, thus giving them a stronger sense of self-esteem and achievement.”
The Quranic texts are even more intolerant and violent in Arabic. It is bad enough that children are indoctrinated anyway, but it is also absurd because Arabic has no value in Western societies, other than in self-segregated Muslim enclaves.
Music: “Music that may include the use of obscene and blasphemous language, encourage immoral behaviour (particularly mixed-gender groups), arouse lustful feelings, encourage the consumption of intoxicants and drugs or contain un-Islamic lyrics would be considered objectionable.” No instruments are allowed so I presume ‘human beat boxing’ is banned as well?
Gambling: No gambling is reasonable, but apart from this, it does not happen anyway! However just for clarification: “Schools should not encourage Muslim pupils to buy or sell raffle tickets.”
Extra training: Obviously there is much to take on board, so not content with politically correct ‘diversity’ and ‘cultural awareness’ training, the MCB makes further recommendations:
“Where the school believes that domestic conflict is causing problems for a Muslim pupil, the involvement of a Muslim member of staff may often enhance the possibility and process of finding a satisfactory solution. Schools should endeavour to ensure that their teaching and support staff have an appropriate representation from the Muslim community and should seek their involvement and participation in decision-making at a management and leadership level. It is valuable for mainstream schools to develop a good understanding and working relationship with their local mosques” … “Schools should endeavour to buy relevant and authentic books on the Islamic heritage and civilisation for the school library and for class use.”
If that does not drum home the message of ‘entitlement’ and ‘segregation from non-Muslims’, then any staff still struggling to grasp these concepts can attended MCB training courses:
“Some non-Muslim teachers may find certain Muslim names difficult to pronounce. Nevertheless, care should be taken to pronounce names as accurately as possible. In some cases shortening the name can change the meaning and can cause offence. For example, the name Abdullah means ‘servant of Allah’, whereas if shortened to ‘Abdul’ it means ‘servant’ or ‘slave’.”
Special Treatment Required
“Schools should consider the appropriateness of school balls/discos, fashion shows that might inadvertently exclude Muslim pupils and parents. Alcohol is prohibited within Islam, and its presence may make it uncomfortable for some pupils and their parents.”
“Some sports involve physical contact, so most Muslim parents find mixed-gender groups objectionable.” Gender segregation is desirable wherever possible. A perfect example of this happened in Nottingham in 2010, when a Muslim parent told teachers at William Booth Primary School (William Booth was the founder of the Salvation Army), that it was against his Muslim beliefs for his 5 year-old daughter to swim in mixed gender groups and with male staff present.
“Islam forbids nakedness in front of others or being among others who are naked.” Therefore a request to install individual showers.
The Takeover Is Lunacy
Faith is usually personal to the individual in Britain; however our culture is based upon our Judeo-Christian heritage. Many schools reflect this, but the hardline MCB is challenging the very foundations of who we are and who our future generations will become.
Demands are being made exponentially already, and if all of the MCB requests were accepted it would only lead to yet more demands and an unworkable two-tier system. The MCB has highlighted the state school system as a beachhead to Islamise British society and must be stopped immediately.
Other Muslim organisations are operating stealth jihad methods, infiltrating positions of power and influence. Combined with changing demographics, for example, in Birmingham, England’s second city, only one third of children is white with 44% being Asian, and political correctness by our spineless authorities, is a potent mix.
The writing is on the wall unless the government can tame Islam quickly! First thing is tell the Islamist MCB to stop interfering with schoolchildren’s education!
