Islamists a/k/a Islamic extremists set up Sharia law-controlled zones in British cities
London, the 13th-biggest Jewish city in the world has an aging Jewish population. There are less than 200,000 Jews in Britain and 100,000 Brits convert to Islam every year. Lord Ahmed only has to threaten and the country kowtows. The Archbishop of Canterbury has called for shar'ia law to be introduced.
British schools are removing the Holocaust and the Crusades from GCSE coursework for fear of offending Muslims.
I think that I've told many of you about Anjem Choudary. He is the firebrand radical imam, who was interviewed on ABC's “This Week” with Christiane Amanpour. While Ms Amanpour neglected to confront him when he claimed: “one day the flag of Islam will fly over the White House”, she also conveniently forgot to inform the audience that Choudary has told the Royal Family "to convert or else" (and has threatened to decapitate the Queen, Prince Charles, Prince WIlliam and Prince Harry), has posted photographs of Buckingham Palace, Nelson's Column, St. Paul's, Westminster Abbey, The Tower, Windsor Castle and many other historic landmarks after Islamification. He has also said that all homosexuals will be executed when Shari'a becomes the Law of the Realm. You should also know that Choudary and his fellow radical imams danced in the streets following 09.11.01.
While Ground Zero was still smouldering, a Jewish yeshiva student reading the Psalms was stabbed 27 times on a London bus.
The cover of the New Statesman, a left-wing magasine, depicted a large Star of David stabbing the Union Jack. Oxford professor Tom Paulin, a noted poet, told an Egyptian interviewer that American Jews, who move to the West Bank and Gaza, "should be shot dead."
The Islamist Lutfur Rhaman was recently elected as the first executive mayor of the London Borough of Tower Hamlets could offer us a harrowing glimpse into Europe's Eurabian future. He belongs to the Islamic Forum of Europe, an organisation which has expressed contempt for democracy and support for jihad and the imposition of shari'a law on British society. Azad Ali, the IFE's community affairs coordinator in London, was quoted declaring: "Democracy...if it means at the expense of not implementing the sharia, of course no one agrees with that." A 2009 recruitment manual for the group states its programme in unequivocal language:
"Our goal is not simply to invite people and give da'wah [call to the faith]. Our goal is to create the True Believer, to then mobilise those believers into an organised force for change who will carry out da'wah, hisbah [enforcement of Islamic law] and jihad [struggle]. This will lead to social change and iqamatud-Deen [an Islamic social, economic and political order]."
The organisation maintains close ties with the East London Mosque in which Jammat al Islami -- a fundamentalist Bangladeshi Islamic party, holds sway.
The rise of a politically active class of Islamic fundamentalists has long been expected in Europe but few thought their rise would be so swift and sudden in Britain. Due to some recent voter approved structural changes in the political organisation of the Borough, the new mayor of the town has almost sole authority over a nearly U.S.D. 1 billion budget. His authority to effect change to Borough rules and regulations is without precedent in the history of local British government.
What, then, can the non-Muslim denizens of Tower Hamlets now expect?
Construction projects for one -- such as the so-called "Hijab Gates" -- huge arches in the shape of the Muslim veil at either end of the area's famous Brick Lane. Community libraries filled, as they have been over the past two years, with extremist Islamic literature. Streets renamed with Islamic motifs (many street signs already appear in English and Bengali). Major community thoroughfares blocked and closed down in celebration of the Eid Festival. And the increasing harassment of Muslim and non- Muslim women who dress immodestly (as was witnessed during the mayoral election campaign).
Antisemitism, wrote a columnist in The Spectator, "has become respectable . . . at London dinner tables." She quoted one member of the House of Lords: "The Jews have been asking for it and now, thank G-d, we can say what we think at last."
In Malmö, Sweden, a surge in anti-Semitic violence from, ahem, "certain quarters" (Muslim) has led Jewish residents to abandon the city in fear for Stockholm and beyond.
In Odense, Denmark, last year superintendent Olav Nielsen announced he would no longer admit Jewish children to the local school because of complaints from Muslims.
In Belgium, thugs beat up the chief rabbi, kicking him in the face and calling him "a dirty Jew." Two synagogues in Brussels were firebombed; a third, in Charleroi, was sprayed with automatic weapons fire.
In Italy, the daily paper La Stampa published a Page 1 cartoon: A tank emblazoned with a Jewish star points its gun at the baby Jesus, who pleads, "Surely they don't want to kill me again?" In Corriere Della Sera, another cartoon showed Jesus trapped in his tomb, unable to rise, because Ariel Sharon, with rifle in hand, is sitting on the sepulchre. The caption: "Non resurrexit."
In Amsterdam, mayor Lodewijk Asscher is considering using police offcers posing as Jews in an attempt to stamp out anti-semitic violence. And, secret recordings have been shown that display young Muslim men shouting and making Nazi salutes in different areas of the city.
The Norwegian government, cheered on by the Socialists, named Mahdi Hasan as the 2009 Role Model of the Year. Hasan has publicly called for a ban on homosexuality enforced by execution, if necessary. Was he condemned? No. He was applauded.
The police in the Norwegian capital Oslo revealed that 2009 set yet another record: compared to 2008, there were twice as many cases of assault rapes. In each and every case, not only in 2008 and 2009 but also in 2007, the offender was a non-Western immigrant.
Muslim-Arab schoolchildren in primary school started the custom of using separate taps, one for the "muslims" and the other for the "French". Muslims leaders requested separate changing rooms for the students "since circumcised males cannot undress alongside the unclean". (Antisemitism in French Schools: Turmoil of a Republic, Georges Bensoussan). How do you say "Jim Crow" in French?
According to French-government statistics, rapes in the housing projects have risen between 15 and 20% every year since 1999. In these neighbourhoods, women, including non-Muslims, have indeed begun veiling only to escape harassment and violence. In the suburb of La Courneuve, 77% of veiled women report that they wear the veil to avoid the wrath of Islamic morality patrols.
In Spain, Muslims use Article 525 of the Spanish Penal Code, which makes it a crime to offend the feelings of the members of a religious confession, to sue people like teachers that have the unmitigated gall to discuss issues like Serrano ham.
Many banks are abandoning the so-called piggy banks, because they are afraid of losing Muslim customers. Muslims regard the pig as an unclean animal.
In Germany, a rabbinical student was beaten up in downtown Berlin and a grenade was thrown into a Jewish cemetery. Thousands of neo-Nazis held a rally, marching near a synagogue on the Jewish sabbath. Graffiti appeared on a synagogue in the western town of Herford: "Six million were not enough."
German butchers who sell pork are targeted by Muslim extremists. Muslims occasionally spit on sausages on sale at open-air markets.
In some European cities Muslim taxi drivers refuse to transport dogs, even blind persons with guide dogs.
Norway: A Tolerant, Inclusive, Diverse, Multicultural Society For Everyone...Except Jews
Some schools in Berlin have installed two separate entrances – one for German Christians and Jews and the other for Muslim Arabs and Turks.
In Lyon, France, a car was rammed into a synagogue and set on fire. In Montpellier, the Jewish religious center was firebombed; so were synagogues in Strasbourg and Marseille; so was a Jewish school in Creteil. A Jewish sports club in Toulouse was attacked with Molotov cocktails, and on the statue of Alfred Dreyfus in Paris, the words "Dirty Jew" were painted. In Bondy, 15 men beat up members of a Jewish football team with sticks and metal bars. The bus that takes Jewish children to school in Aubervilliers has been attacked three times in the last 14 months. According to the police, metropolitan Paris has seen 10 to 12 anti-Jewish incidents per day since Easter.
Walls in Jewish neighborhoods have been defaced with slogans proclaiming "Jews to the gas chambers" and "Death to the Jews." The weekly journal Le Nouvel Observateur published an appalling libel: It said Israeli soldiers rape Palestinian women, so that their relatives will kill them to preserve "family honor." The French ambassador to Great Britain was not sacked -- and did not apologize -- when it was learned that he had told guests at a London dinner that the world's troubles were the fault of "that shitty little country, Israel."
Atatürk sought to insure Turkey's prosperity and relative peace by tamping down on religious fervour. Women were shunned for wearing a hijab as late as the 1990s. Now, a visit to the neighbourhood of Bala without being properly veiled and covered will result, at minimum, in a woman being called a "wh0re."
"Teachers (in the UK) are being forced to report children as young as three to the authorities for using alleged ‘racist’ language."
Munira Mirza, a senior advisor to London Mayor Boris Johnson, said schools were being made to spy on nursery age youngsters by the Race Relations Act 2000.
More than a quarter of a million children in Britain have been accused of racism since it became law, she said.
Writing in Prospect magazine, she said: ‘The more we seek to measure racism, the more it seems to grow.
‘Teachers are now required to report incidents of racist abuse among children as young as three to local authorities, resulting in a massive increase of cases and reinforcing the perception that we need an army of experts to manage race relations from cradle to grave.
‘Does this heightened awareness of racism help to stamp it out? Quite the opposite. It creates a climate of suspicion and anxiety.’
The Act compelled 43,000 public authorities, including schools and churches, ‘to promote good relations between persons of different racial groups’. Details of the incidents are logged on databases.
Teachers are allowed to report racism even if the alleged ‘victim’ was not offended or if the child does not understand what they were saying.
Freedom of Information replies obtained by civil liberties group the Manifesto Club show that between 2002 and 2009, 280,000 incidents have been reported.
This kind of dangerous thought policing has become a mainstay in England. A few months ago, 5 year-olds were sent to sensitivity training because they did not like Middle Eastern food and, were therefore, racists. One girl had the audacity to utter ""Yuk!"
Just so that some of my Commonwealth brothers and sisters won't feel left out....
Over in Australia in 2006, Sheikh Taj el-Din al-Hilali, Australia’s most senior Muslim cleric, delivered a sermon referring to a recent rape victim thus:
"If you take out uncovered meat and place it outside . . . without cover, and the cats come to eat it . . . whose fault is it, the cats’ or the uncovered meat’s? The uncovered meat is the problem. If she was in her room, in her home, in her hijab, no problem would have occurred."
In Canada, immigrants wishing to live in the small Canadian town of Herouxville, Quebec, must not stone women to death in public, burn them alive or throw acid on them, according to an "extraordinary" set of rules released by the local council.
"We wish to inform these new arrivals that the way of life which they abandoned when they left their countries of origin cannot be recreated here," said the declaration, which makes clear women are allowed to drive, vote, dance, write checks, dress how they want, work and own property. Therefore we consider it completely outside these norms to … kill women by stoning them in public, burning them alive, burning them with acid, circumcising them etc."
Salam Elmenyawi, president of the Muslim Council of Montreal, said the declaration had "SET THE CLOCK BACK FOR DECADES."
Outrageous, I know! What's next? Telling us that we have to drive on the right side of the road when we immigrate to the United States? Hell, no, not only can we not drive 55, but right lane? Shirley, you can't be serious!
Oh, while we are in Canada, parents if you have a daughter and live in Ontario, please know that she will be segregated from the "general population" at Valley Park Middle School in Toronto if she is on her period. She is "unclean" and must sit in the back while the visiting imam leads the public school students in Islamic prayers on Fridays. Oh, you thought that there was separation of church and state in Canada? There is. There's just not that much separation of mosque and state.
Norwegian Finance Minister Kristin Halvorsen all smiles during Anti-Israel demonstration
Sign behind says, “The greatest axis of evil: USA and Israel” and many in the crowd are chanting
“Death to Jews!”
In 1936, during the Cable Street riots, the British Union of Fascists jeered at London Jews, “Go back to Palestine!”, “Palestine” being in those days the designation for the Jewish homeland. Helen Thomas jeered at today’s Jews, “Get the hell out of Palestine,” “Palestine” being now the designation for the land illegally occupied by the Jewish "apartheid state" even though it has never been an Arab state. “Go home,” advised Miss Thomas, “to Poland and Germany.” Wherever a Jew is, whatever a Jew is, he should be something else somewhere else. And then he can be hated for that, too.
"At the start of the 21st century," writes Pierre-Andre Taguieff, a well-known social scientist, in a new book, "we are discovering that Jews are once again select targets of violence. . . . Hatred of the Jews has returned to France."
But of course, it never left. Not France; not Europe. Antisemitism, the oldest bigotry known to man, has been a part of European society since time immemorial. In the aftermath of the Holocaust, open Jew-hatred became unfashionable; but fashions change, and Europe is reverting to type.
There are websites now tracking the violence and anti-Semitism in Europe. It is frightening.
Hitler's Ghost Haunts Europe.
Update: On 12.21.11:
"Three senior judges on the Court of Appeal in London ruled that a baby girl born out of wedlock must be adopted to save her from the risk of being slaughtered in an ‘honour killing" even though the child's father wants to raise her with his wife.
'It would be a matter of intense, almost unimaginable shame to him and his family.'
- Mrs Justice Parker
If the unmarried Muslim woman’s father found out about the child, he would feel such ‘unimaginable shame’ he could unleash a vengeful bloodbath by killing the baby and his whole family, three senior judges agreed.
So they made the extraordinary order to have the one-year-old girl – known as Baby Q – adopted for her own safety.
The court heard Mrs Justice Parker had been ‘persuaded by the evidence of the police’ that the mother and baby Q could be at ‘a very high level of risk’ if the baby’s birth was to become known in the wider community.
The police force in question was not identified, nor the social services department involved in the case. But the court was told that social workers, police and the mother of baby Q were all in agreement that she should be adopted.
Still hopeful of taking custody of his child, F launched an appeal, but this was rejected yesterday by three senior judges, Lord Justice Munby, Lady Justice Black and Lord Justice Kitchin.
They agreed with the first judge that there were several good reasons why F and his wife – who now have a baby of their own – should not be allowed to bring up baby Q.
Among them was the ‘tension’ that would be caused by F’s wife looking after her philandering husband’s illegitimate child as well as her own.
Both F and his wife also lacked ‘empathy and insight’, and were criticised as being incapable of dealing with the little girl’s feelings as she grew older and wanted to learn the details of her ‘very unfortunate start in life’.
The judges concluded: ‘The risks – physical, emotional, short and long term – are too great for Q to be brought up by her father.’"
