Jihadi Top Trumps

Matt cartoon November 27

Listening in the car I was fascinated, and astonished, to hear that well known radical extremist Lord Lawson on 5Live…no only kidding….it was the loveable islamist rogues from Cage whom the BBC can’t seem to get enough of….wanting their opinion on the newly proposed terror legislation….couldn’t make it up!

Then Frank Gardner came on and told us that the government must be severely embarrassed by the flight of Abu Rumaysah into the ISIS fold….he went on to boast that he had interviewed him recently, Tony Livesey butted in to say he too had interviewed the guy….Gardner continued that people had complained about the BBC giving so much airtime to Jihadists…but he explained it is the BBC’s job to challenge their claims!

Since when has the BBC challenged the Jihadi’s claims?  The BBC has been the main propagator of the terrorist narrative about Iraq, British foreign policy and Palestine.  The BBC has probably done more to recruit terrorists than any radical preacher ever has….how many times have we heard a BBC journo blithely talk of Britain and France ‘carving up the Middle East between them’ when things were a lot more complicated?

Even today the BBC casually reports that staff at ‘Save The Children’ are protesting about Blair being given an award by the charity….but the BBC completely accepted their narrative about an illegal war being launched by Blair, never mind it was voted on by Parliament, and the BBC didn’t bother to challenge the claim that Blair has the blood of all children killed in those wars on his hands.

Well, it wouldn’t challenge such claims as it was the BBC that was a major contributor to that narrative of an illegal war and a million people killed in Iraq.  The BBC of course doesn’t lay the blame where it really belongs, at the door of the foreign Jihadis who flooded into Iraq…they were as foreign as the Americans…and yet somehow the jihadi ‘foreign policy’ was acceptable, it was OK for these foreigners to blow Iraq apart….just how much bloodshed and violence would there have been if they hadn’t been there, encouraged and justified by the likes of the BBC,  once Saddam was deposed?

Unarmed And Dangerous

 

If you have been listening to the BBC’s reporting on events in Ferguson USA you will have heard the mantra ‘Unarmed Black teen shot dead by white police officer’ repeated ad nauseum.

Not sure you could call a 6′ 4″, 300lb thug who is prepared to use violence ‘unarmed’…especially as he had just robbed a store using his physical size to intimidate the store owner..

A series of CCTV pictures showing a robbery in a store in Ferguson

 

 

….and went on to punch the said police officer and attempted to take his pistol…here is another ‘Mike’, unarmed, black and dangerous……you don’t need a weapon to be ‘lethal’…

 

 

 

Interesting phrasing by the BBC…as if the police officer is guilty but the Grand Jury made a decision not to prosecute anyway…a wilful decision…..but not based on evidence?:

A dozen US cities have seen new protests over the decision not to charge a white policeman who shot a black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri.

Many in Ferguson’s predominantly African-American community had called for the officer to be charged with murder, but the grand jury’s decision means the police officer will not face state criminal charges over the shooting.

Lawyers for Mr Brown’s family denounced the grand jury’s decision as “unfair” while condemning the violence that followed the decision.

 

 

‘…..the grand jury’s decision means the police officer will not face state criminal charges over the shooting.’

No, the evidence that the police officer was defending himself means he will not face charges.

 

 

The BBC likes this photo of Michael Brown where he looks about 14 and almost child-like:

Michael Brown, the 18 year old who was shot dead in Ferguson, Missouri

 

But they could have used this which gives an entirely different perspective…..

 

 

Still it really is the police’s fault all that violence in Ferguson and beyond..they just provoke it…..

hs  f2 hs  ferg1

Good that the BBC’s Hugh Sykes can laugh at times of trouble.

 

 

 

We looked at the BBC’s original reporting at the time:

 

Blackout

Facts and relevant new information are thin on the ground if you listen to the BBC, the BBC prefering to stick with the racist, politicised speculation of those seeking to whip up a riot. The BBC has a habit of being very, very slow with its reporting of certain information but all too ready to report pure speculation or obviously partial claims that fit a particular agenda.

I have heard several BBC reports over the last few days and none have mentioned that the Police officer was assaulted and injured or that Brown ‘bum rushed’ him in an attempt to assault him again.

Victoria Derbyshire had a look at the events but from a very, very one sided approach…..all we got was ‘racism’, ‘execution’ and ‘police brutality’.

That’s despite a clear reported version of what happened, one that seems to be corroborated more each day….and yet the BBC fails to fully outline that version of events.

 

We’ve had the Race hustlers, now how about the truth?

A Witness Conversation Unknowingly Captured at the Scene of the Ferguson Shooting is a Game-Changer

….but not reported by the BBC.

 

 

And speaking of race hustlers here’s Gary Younge, slave to his race as a professional ‘Black’ grievance monger….

The law may have spoken but the Ferguson verdict is not justice

The trouble is that the United States, for far longer than it has been a “nation of laws”, has been a nation of injustice. And in the absence of basic justice such laws can amount to little more than codified tyranny. When a white cop, Darren Wilson, shoots an unarmed black teenager, Michael Brown, dead and then is not indicted, the contradiction is glaring. For a world where it is not only legal for people to shoot you dead while you walk down the street, but where they can do so in the name of the law, is one in which some feel they have nothing to lose.

 

 

So never mind the evidence says Gary….lynch officer Wilson.

 

 

And Obama isn’t far behind if you follow his take on race and America:

 

Here he suggests there is cause to doubt the verdict on Michael Brown…

The president said anger is an ‘understandable reaction’ from people who believe ‘the law is being applied in a discriminatory fashion,’ a reference to Wilson being white and Brown being black.

‘What we need to do is try to understand them,’ Obama said.

Obama: Police Acted ‘Stupidly’ in Gates Case

“I don’t know, not having been there and not seeing all the facts, what role race played in that [Gates case]. But I think it’s fair to say, number one, any of us would be pretty angry; number two, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home; and, number three, what I think we know separate and apart from this incident is that there’s a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately. That’s just a fact.”

 

 

‘Trayvon Martin could have been me’ – Barack Obama

President Barack Obama has said that “Trayvon Martin could have been me, 35 years ago”, in his first comments on the case since last week’s verdict.

The unarmed black 17-year-old was shot and killed in Florida in February 2012.

Desperate Dan

 

 

Dan Hodges, as with many on the Left, loses his marbles when it comes to immigration and race issues…here’s his latest effort:

Ukip and the hard-Left are both blinded by Tory hatred

 

He claims…

The Left’s rhetoric has become as toxic as that of the hard-Right

 

Just before proving himself right with this rant….

I’m not going to lie. I think Ukip is a thoroughly racist, thoroughly prejudiced, thoroughly reactionary party. And I think the majority of its core supporters reflect that. Racism. Islamophobia. Homophobia. Misogyny. Rightly or wrongly, those are the values I associate with Ukip.

 

So maybe a few Ukippers could be racist….but Hodges extends that to the Party itself…by that standard Labour must be racist or Islamophobic etc.

Wasn’t it Tony Blair, you know him, once leader of the Labour Party, who said about Islamic radicalism that the problem lies within the religion itself….does that make the Labour party islamophobic?  After all he did launch two crusades against Islam didn’t he?

I could line up many Labour vioters who express strong racist views…But it seems Hodges can’t see that…perhaps he is ‘Blinded by UKIP hatred’.

 

Hilariously and yes, ludicrously, he went on…

It may sound ludicrously simplistic, but until recently I genuinely thought people on the Right were the bad guys and the people on the Left were the good guys. In my mind’s eye, the Left still retained a semblance of moral authority. Yes, the Right were good at running the economy and taking the hard choices and all the usual “firm but fair” clichés. But it was still the Left who had cornered the market on compassion and fairness and basic humanity.

 

Has he never heard of the Soviet Union, or the National Socialists in Germany, or Mao?  Difficult to believe anyone could believe that the Left has a monopoly on compassion, fairness and basic humanity when they have slaughtered millions.

 

And what of his claims that UKIP are, what did he call them?  Oh yes…racist,homophobic, misogynist, islamophobic.

You have to laugh at the guy…..apart from the sheer bigotry of his own opinion to throw in islamophobic as well is beyond parody and demonstrates precisely what the problem is in the media…a problem long exhibited by the BBC itself….the refusal to accept or allow any criticism of Islam…at least when it comes from people they deem ‘unacceptable’.

Racist, homophobic, misogynist…..all three accusations can be made about Islam…and have been…not least by the slippery Mehdi Hasan as he tries to oil his way into the affections of the Kufr Establishment…never mind poll after poll confirming such beliefs and the Koran itself laying them out in black and white.

Curious Hodges doesn’t wish to label Islam ‘racist, homophobic and misogynist’ then…but in a bout of moral cowardice rushes to label people who raise such criticisms as Islamophobic.

 

 

The BBC itself is renowned for its pathological and irrational hatred of UKIP making frequent sly associations with ‘Nazis’ and the ‘Far Right’, happily making nuanced comments about racism and bigotry…or not so nuanced comments.

The BBC’s ‘comedy’ shows are littered with violently anti-UKIP rhetoric…even suggesting UKIP want gun laws changed so that they can shoot immigrants.

Here is Sandi Toksvig (7mins) (British citizen but still in possession of her Danish passport) telling us…

‘UKIP can’t deport me but I’m gonna make them wish they could’

Presumably in her own time and not on the BBC’s shilling….much like the good Hugh Sykes who on Twitter (Opinions all his own!) says (H/T Is the BBC biased? ) told us….

 

hsykes   ukip

 

Now that’s a fascinating tweet, it says so much about what goes through the mind of a BBC correspondent.

Firstly that Austerity is a problem apparently, one that is causing us economic woes…which kind of misses out what made Austerity necessary…..the real problem of the huge debt left by Labour.  Typical BBC…head in sand and lack of context.

Then the link to immigrants…who says immigrants are causing problems with the economy?  They cause low wages and housing shortages, queues at the GP and in A&E, problems with schools and welfare issues but to blame them for the big picture economic problems?  No, don’t think anyone blames them for the national debt.  That was Labour’s fault.

Then he urges the Parties to adopt this strategy, educating the bigots,  make them see sense, and beat UKIP…which apart from the anti-UKIP message shows he entirely misunderstands why people are attracted to UKIP.

Sykes, as does the pro-immigration lobby, frames the immigration debate as purely an economic issue…immigrants benefit us they tell us…ignoring the fact that they don’t and research that says they do comes from the same man who advised Labour to open the flood gates….and of course they concentrate on EU immigration rather than the total…ignoring the massive cost of non-EU immigration.

But UKIP doesn’t argue solely on economic grounds…their argument is that there are too many immigrants per se…too many, too fast, for the national infrastructure to cope with…housing, schools, roads, power, water, the NHS, prisons, all under ever increasng pressure due to a massively increasing population….and that’s aside from the cultural and social problems that entail and can’t be denied however much you want to believe in the religion of multi-culturalism.

A net migration of 270,000 foreigners came to the UK last year…and they keep on coming.

And they keep on having children.

How can any country expect to cope with such numbers….many of whom have no intention of integrating, or even of learning English.  The BBC did a survey in India a couple of years back and found that most Indians who wanted to come to the UK didn’t want to integrate…the BBC report didn’t mention that little detail though.

The problem with people who want to limit immigration is that they are confused, hysterical, ignorant…vicitms of ‘a public and political debate about immigration which has often appeared duplicitous and dishonest.’

Or so says Mark Easton…and of course he is correct…we have been victims of a narrative that shapes ‘a public and political debate about immigration which has often appeared duplicitous and dishonest.’  A debate shaped by people like him who tell us we should be happy to accept immigration because after all, we are all immigrants ourselves…..

And yet we are also, I think, a tolerant and broad-minded country in the main. Over centuries, we have experienced wave after wave of migrants and seen how the new arrivals have added something to our cultural tapestry. If we look back far enough, all of us will find elements of migrant stock.

 

Naturally that entirely misses the point….which is the numbers…just how many migrants can you fit into the UK?  If the borders remain open millions will ‘flock’ here, and continue to ‘flock’ here.

But that just doesn’t enter into the BBC equation.  Immigration is good, therefore more immigration must be even better.

 

The problem with the BBC is that they think UKIP is the problem…get rid of UKIP and we’ll go back to the cosy consensus on immigration where nobody says nothing…and the BBC enforces that with the threat that anyone who breaks the code is labelled a racist, a bigot, a Nazi.

That cosy consensus is the problem…the political parties backed up by the Media who want mass immigration and ignore the fact that most of the population doesn’t want it.

UKIP have allowed the ‘People’ a voice, they have allowed them a genuine chance to have their say on immigration long denied them by the PPE politicians and their Media guardians…and the BBC doesn’t like it.

You have to ask what would happen if UKIP were to be crushed by the forces arrayed against them…would that make the issue of immigration go away or would genuinely scary forces be released when the ‘People’ see once again that they are being silenced and lied to?

The BBC’s dishonest attempts to engineer the debate and smother the issue will lead to something that ironically they believe they are working against as the ‘People’ demand a say.

Who Knew!

 

Did enjoy Today’s Jihadi Radio….makes you wonder why we need a separate ‘Asian Network’ when the BBC as a whole pumps out a certain narrative…and now we hear that not only are MI5 evil torturers of innocent men they are too incompetent to catch such innocent men should they not be so innocent…however the lawyer representing them was asked at least one difficult question….is there any proof that what they say is true?  His reply …after a long pause…er well…another person says the same thing.  Case closed then.

 

Also like the BBC website’s take on MI5…

MI5 ‘set for criticism’ over Lee Rigby murder

Newsnight’s investigations correspondent Nick Hopkins said: “I think it is pretty clear this report will clear MI5 of having intelligence that could have prevented Lee Rigby’s death.

“But there is a significant issue here, which is should MI5 have given greater priority and greater scrutiny to these two men in the run up to Lee Rigby’s death?”

The findings show that MI5 had at one stage tried to recruit one of Lee Rigby’s killers because of his “familiarity with jihadi circles”, he told BBC Newsnight.

 

 

A bit of a non-sequitur there….MI5 could not have prevented the death of Lee Rigby…but in the next paragraph the BBC declares essentially that they could have if only they had given the pair more scrutiny.

 

The Telegraph explains why MI5 struggles to cope…an entirely different take on things and a more indepth look at why MI5 cannot know everything about everybody…

Only a fraction of terror suspects can be watched 24/7

Limitations in watching suspects revealed as report into killing of Lee Rigby is expected to say it is virtually impossible to prevent ‘lone-wolf’ killings

MI5 can monitor fewer than 50 terrorist suspects around the clock, it can be disclosed, ahead of a report into the Lee Rigby murder that will highlight the limitations in watching terrorists in Britain.

Restricted resources mean only a fraction of the hundreds of suspected Islamist extremists at large can be subject to intensive 24/7 surveillance at any one time.

The committee is understood to have accepted that neither man was assessed as a serious enough risk to have legally justified more intensive surveillance which may have found those clues.

The pair were only peripheral figures among the hundreds of extremists whom the intelligence agencies must monitor with limited resources.

Prof Peter Neumann, an expert on terrorism from King’s College, London, told Sky News that the security services had to make a judgment about who to keep under surveillance.

“If you assume that at any given point there are 500 or 600 potentially violent extremists in the country and that it takes 20, 25 people to keep somebody under surveillance 24/7, inevitably given that resources are limited you can only watch maybe 50, 60 people at any given time 24/7.

 

 

Perhaps the BBC’s friends at the Guardian might like to also add to the explanation as to why tracking terrorists may now be even harder…….

 

Edward Snowden leaks mean GCHQ takes three times as long to track terrorists

POLICE AND THIEVES

Be still my aching sides. There was a wonderful moment just now on BBC Today, around 6.45am, when the BBC reporter covering the news that a US grand jury has decided not to charge a Missouri police officer over the shooting of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown had to moved for his safety from a rampaging mob. What made this hilarious was that the BBC reporter was providing the usual spin for shameful thuggery and loutishness on the streets of Ferguson but had to leg it when the thugs came for him. There is a moral in that for the BBC,

BBC BACKING IRAN

I happened to listen to the Today programme on BBC R4 this morning around 6.45am. Jeremy Bowen was there to help “explain” what is happening with those “talks” with Iran. It was incredible stuff really, with Jeremy playing along with the line that Iran are the moderates in this one and Israel is being bellicose. Bowen never seeks to disappoint me in his unrelenting anti-Israel tone and this week started no differently than so many others.

Biased? Moi????

 

 

 

Craig at Is the BBC biased? brings us the redoubtable Tom Gross who so often nails the Media’s failure to report impartially and who says that…

I’m in touch which quite a lot of senior editors and I myself pointed out mistakes to them in private meetings and they kind of brushed them aside. They don’t care.

 

Much as I respect Tom Gross I have to conclude he is mistaken…Jeremy ‘I saw nothing’ Bowen reveals all in an answer and question session held recently….

 

jb impartial 1

So there you go…Jezza assures you he isn’t a propagandist…certainly not for the Israelis anyway.

Jeremy is though a bit of a grouch and doesn’t take criticism well…still refusing to accept the BBC Trust’s judgement that he had sinned.

Here he is lashing out at his critics who think he should be concentrating on the war in Syria instead of reporting on food…as someone has kindly taken the time to catalogue.

Jeremy Bowen: Why I tweet pictures of food from warzones

Feeding the trolls

The first time I went to a war, in El Salvador in 1989, I was struck by the fact that tomatoes were on sale a few streets away from the centre of the fighting in the capital San Salvador. My conscience bothered me. Should I have included that small piece of relative normality in my report? I didn’t at the time. But ever since I have wondered how to reflect the vestiges of normal life that can exist in the most abnormal places.

Recently, as well as reporting on what’s happening for the BBC, I have taken to tweeting pictures of food. I’ve sent plenty from Damascus. That’s partly because I think food tells you a lot about a society. But also because it is important to show how people live as well as how they die. I have had a quite a severe trolling from those who disapprove, on the grounds that anything other than the horror of war is a distortion and a distraction. I disagree. If you don’t like it, trolls, don’t look at the pictures.

 

Good to see that his conscience bothered him as he chose whether or not to report on tomatoes in a war zone…not so conflicted however about those BBC reporters under his control who deliberately mislead audiences with their anti-Israel propaganda.

Of course, as he says, if we don’t like the way the BBC reports the news we don’t have to look at the pictures or read the reports….but we do have to pay for them….and Jeremy’s wages.

Still, churlish to expect him to do his job when he’s so obviously happy doing whatever.

LIFE SUCKS

I did chuckle this morning whilst enduring the Today programme. Inventor James Dyson was on and the BBC were angling to get him to say that he supported the UK staying in the EU. To their horror, Dyson argued for the UK to LEAVE the EU. You can bet he won’t get such an easy ride from the comrades in the future. It made my day.

HEAVENS ABOVE…

This interesting post was brought to my attention and I wanted to share with you.

“Hi, you might want to write about this one: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-30080212about the new women bishops.

The church that the religion correspondent decided to visit to hear people’s views was St Mary’s Newington, London. The Rev (http://www.southwark.anglican.org/parishes/181r) just happens to be that beacon of liberalness Canon Giles Fraser of St Pauls fame as well as a recipient of a Stonewall award in 2012.

Why couldn’t she have visited All Souls Langham or Holy Trinity Brompton? Much larger and much better at reflecting opinion in the church.

Ps: Caroline Wyatt’s entrance (http://www.bbc.co.uk/ariel/27344735) where she says:
‘I’m really looking forward to exploring the religious faultlines around the globe, looking at the challenges posed at home and abroad by religious extremism, and covering the beliefs and ethics of the billions of people of different faiths around the world,’ she told Ariel. ‘I’m also keen to explore the scientific debate over religion and the nature of belief, and reflect on what religion means to people in the UK and elsewhere.’

Doesn’t appear to be a good place to start & the only credentials related to religion are she was educated in a convent.”

The Lady’s Not For UKIPing

http://a.disquscdn.com/uploads/mediaembed/images/1467/8002/original.jpg?w=600&h

Thought I’d reuse the photo…too good not to…again thanks to Stewart for the link

 

Remember when Nigel Farage talked about having a gang of Romanians for neighbours and he was publicly disembowelled and the BBC hurried to offer James O’Brien a shift on Newsnight on the strength of the hatchet job?

How different today when a Labour MP tweets a photo implying that people who fly the English flag and drive a white van will be voting UKIP and by implication must be racist, and the BBC, et al, sets out to defend the culprit.

Peter Allen today was asking if it was really a sackable offence…‘are we all going a bit crazy at the moment?’ he asked…..and a BBC roving news reporter actually said he thought it wasn’t the right decision to sack the good lady…maybe he was talking for himself, or on Ed Miliband’s behalf….but the BBC does seem upset that it is Labour getting all the flak on the front pages this morning and not the Tories whom they want you to know have taken a hell of a beating.

However… they also, paradoxically, wish to play down UKIP’s win….it’s a flash in the pan, a by-election anomaly that will be corrected in the general election, UKIP disappointed as they got less than expected, and they will fall apart under scrutiny.

Oh yes…and they are not breaking the mould of politics.

Really?  They have forced all the major parties to adopt their narrative about immigration, and the Tories are panicking about Europe…and oh yes…the swing to UKIP  28% from the Tories……via Guido:

 

And a mere 42% change overall…if that isn’t mould breaking what is?

The BBC has long whinged about the sameness of politics and the uniform, production line product of PPE Oxbridge graduates populating the government and opposition…they hoped Russell Brand was the solution…turns out he’s not….but the mould is definitely being broken.

Of course UKIP has the odds stacked against them…all the political parties, the BBC, much of the Media, even the Telegraph, is ranged against them watching and searching for every chink in their armour, every faux pas, every ‘mis-spoken’ word, seeking to crush them out of existence.

British Values And Closed Societies

 

‘For those of us who value an open, liberal society it is time to explain why a liberal democratic society is superior to the alternatives.’

 

Gunther Grass was raised in a Nazi dominated society. He absorbed the Nazi ethos all through his young life and at 17 he joined the SS claiming he was not conscious of any guilt at the time, it was normal, but later lived a life marked by shame.

A member of the Hitler Youth, he had been, as he admits in his memoir, “a Young Nazi … a believer to the end”, one who saw his “Fatherland threatened, surrounded by enemies.”
How could he not believe that it was his duty to take part in that “life-and-death” struggle.

After the war, a lot of people pretended that the “poor German people had been seduced by a horde of evils,” Grass said in the interview Friday, but that “was not the truth. It happened all in broad daylight. And with enthusiasm and with popularity.”

 

Sound familiar when we see young Muslims heading off to join ISIS and Al Qaeda and their parents blaming the West for not having tackled Assad?

 

In 2012 we stated that…

‘There clearly needs to be a debate about immigration and Islam in a ‘secular’ Western democracy.  Is the BBC prepared to hold it?’

Is anyone prepared to hold it?  MI5 thinks not….

People in MI5 tell me that denying the connection between Islamism and terrorism derives from the belief that if you accept it, there’s no hope for a multicultural society in Britain: we would just have to recognise that part of the population is permanently liable to become terrorists.

 

However it looks like the BBC has bitten the bullet with this remarkably open condemnation of ‘conservative’ Islam by David Goodhart……

‘Some say that if people understood Islam more everything would be fine, they would be more tolerant of it…I think quite the contrary…the more they understand about it the more alien they would find it…authoritarian, collectivist, patriarchal, all the sort of things that Britain might have been 100 years ago but isn’t now’

 

A Muslim, Gina Khan, tells us that the British state is not aware of what is going on in Muslim communities…Muslim citizens are being stripped of their British rights in a liberal democratic society by imposed Muslim culture.

Goodhart says that the Koran expresses many values that are in opposition to the values of a liberal democracy but asks is it really a problem?  Can’t we accomodate conservative Muslims and their extremes?

A Muslim says….Recognise these differences, celebrate the difference but not in exchange for a common unity and a common identity.

Another Muslim says…’We completely understand the concerns people have about Islam…we have them too.’

Goodhart finishes off with this thought…..

The gulf between conservative Islam and mainstream British society is deeper than with any other comparable community…for those of us who value an open, liberal society it is time to explain why a liberal democratic society is superior to the alternatives.

 

A bit of a challenge for the BBC…..though credit for broadcasting this programme….the question is will it and its questions filter through to the mainstream BBC such as Jeremy Vine, Campbell, Peter Allen, Nolan and Derbyshire?

The all too usual effect of such programmes is to briefly illuminate the truth but then to be quietly forgotten whilst the likes of the above continue to bury their heads in the sand peddling their myths about Islam and its valuable contribution to a secular and progressive society like ours.

 

Here is what is being taught at Luton Mosque…and many others…

Honour,victory, and strength will only come to this Ummah when we return and unite upon the pure religion as it was brought by the Prophet (alayhis salaam) and practiced by the Companions. Only when we single out Allah, alone, in worship and give obedience to Him and His Messenger, will the Help of Allah come.

And they ask why Muslims rush to join ISIS.  Because that is what they are being taught by mainstream mosques….the above is a call to practise fundamentalist Islam and for the creation of a caliphate.

 

The BBC’s deeply ingrained mantra….

Moderate Islam is Our New Religion
Moderate Islam isn’t what most Muslims believe. It’s what most liberals believe that Muslims believe.

The new multicultural theology of the West is moderate Islam. Moderate Islam is the perfect religion for a secular age since it isn’t a religion at all.

 

Gina Khan told us this a long time ago but has been pretty much ignored by the BBC until now….

As a young child and teenager I grew up in an area where the majority was English but there were also Greeks, Chinese, Jamaicans and Indians living in the same community.

Everybody got on and respected each other. My parents ran
supermarkets, so we were integrated, if not allowed to assimilate as females because of the religion. And now the white people are leaving, the area has disintegrated, and it breaks my heart. Most members of my family have moved out.
The area has been Islamised. Mosques, mini-mosques and madrasas rise up on almost every street corner, but there is nothing for the youth. Drugs and crime has made the area unsafe for young girls. Social services and the police know what is going on.

I have witnessed anti-west and anti-Jew posters and leaflets appear in shops run by young bearded Muslims. I watched the Islamists mobilise the Muslim community right under my nose. Before 9/11 the time I could not name it, but I knew something was not right, but it was being done in the name of Islam.

The extremists have had over twenty five uncontested years to mobilise the minds of British Muslims and their backwardness now dominates some areas.

Multicultural polices are not working…

 

Over twenty five years to mobilise the minds of British Muslims?…hang on….isn’t that long before 2003 and the Iraq War?  And that was written in 2009 by Khan.

Radicalisation began long, long ago.  The BBC needs a new narrative on the real causes of terrorism.

H/T Stewart for the image

 

Nothing to do with BBC bias (that I can think of)…but an amusing illustration of the tangled web Labour weaves with its hypocrisy when we are told we must have a civilised, balanced debate on immigration…and then they label anyone, not themselves of course, who talks about it as racist….naturally not openly…using terms such as ‘a race to the bottom’ or tweets like the one below to cast aspersions.

 

 

Embedded image permalink

 

You have to laugh at the date on the poster…2004…just as Labour opened the floodgates for mass immigration intended to ‘rub the Right’s nose in diversity’ and to essentially ethnically cleanse Britain of its hideously white, British nature.

 

Back to the future and a tweet from a Labourite…

 

“It was a house covered in British flags. I’ve never seen anything like it before. My point is that it’s a remarkable image of a house completely covered in flags. There’s three of them.”

 

Twitter

 

 

Think the meaning is clear…racist little englander lives here…where UKIP flourishes….vote Labour!

 

Perhaps Miliband should also resign…after all his sentiments aren’t dissimilar to those expressed in the tweet….

Labour would be “talking more about immigration as a party”, he said, “but always on the basis of Labour values, not UKIP values”.

 

And we all know what UKIP’s values are don’t we children?  If UKIP wins in Rochdale will Miliband be denouncing all those voters as racists?  Oh..he just has.

Perhaps the BBC could ‘hold his feet to the fire’ about such sentiments.

Doubt it somehow…politicians and commenters always get away with slipping in subtle ‘UKIP are racist’ smears on the BBC.
