Watching Nicky Campbell’s Big Question debate whether we should ban the burqa. (Short answer; Yes!) Campbell keeps referring to “The Prophet”. Which prophet is that? Does he refer to Christ as “The Saviour.” Naturally there is a Burqa clad babe in the front row. Yvonne Ridley on to help defend Burqa.

    Campbell is a tosser. The 'Queen' of breakfast radio spouts more bollocks than John Prescott.

    This frequent referencing of "The Prophet" really pisses me off. I would be prepared to accept "The Islamic Prophet" but only if Jesus Christ was referred to as "The Christian Saviour".

    For BBC: an instructive article about Ms. Ridley:

    "Yvonne Ridley, peddling Islam in Tennessee"
    (New English Review, Feb 08.)


    "Ridley has described her viewpoint as “
    'pretty much in line with Hamas' and has described Israel as 'that disgusting little watchdog of America that is festering in the Middle East' and furthermore that her political party, the Respect Party, 'is a Zionist-free party… if there was any Zionism in the Respect Party they would be hunted down and kicked out. We have no time for Zionists,' and that both the Conservative and Liberal Democrat parties are 'riddled with Zionists.' Ridley’s first husband was Daoud Zaaroura a former PLO colonel. And yet she warns '[I]f any of those Zionist idiots continue to try and paint me as an anti-semite I must warn you … one of my closest friends is one of Britain's best defamation lawyers. Oh, and she happens to be Jewish (for some reason most of the best lawyers and hairdressers are).' Point taken."

    Yvonne sounds like a top girl

    Is she single

    It seems that Al Beeb is particularly keen on converts to Islam: e.g. Ridley, and Jackson:

    "Michael Jackson 'converts to Islam and changes name to Mikaeel'"

    'Telegraph' article, (21 Nov 08), complete with photo of Jackson in burqa.

    As for Ridley, according to a friendly interview by the 'Guardian', (24/2/04):

    "It was September 28 2001 – just 17 days after the destruction of the World Trade Centre. Yvonne Ridley, a 43-year-old single mother, and chief reporter at the Sunday Express, had been sent to Islamabad in nearby Pakistan to cover the start of George Bush's 'war on terror'. In search of a scoop, she had dressed in a burka and made an illegal sortie over the border into Afghanistan.
    "It was on the return journey, just two miles from the border, that her careful plans unravelled, with disastrous consequences. Ridley was passing by a Taliban checkpoint when her donkey bolted. She was just attempting to scoop up the reins when her camera slipped from her shoulder and into full view of a Taliban soldier.

    "Ridley thought she was either going to be gang-raped or stoned to death. 'I wondered how much pain I could take and prayed that, whatever happened, I would die quickly,' she says. In the event, she was only taken to jail, first in Jalalabad and then in Kabul, and held for a total of 10 days. In her diary, she recorded: 'They [her Taliban captors] constantly refer to me as their guest and say that they are sad if I am sad'."

    Apparently, like certain BBC reporters, she was impressed by 'the humanity of the Taliban'.

    [I]f any of those Zionist idiots…

    Idiots? They're genii you silly bitch. Shit, they manage to rule the entire population of the world and be responsible for everything that happens in it now, in the past and forever, without anyone save a handful of angry racists and paranoid kooks realising it. That's not easy to do, surely. Even with their Jew Magik and exotic alien technology, it'd be highy improbable they'd pull it off successfully.

    Saw this marvellous programme this morning. No mention of "elf `n safety regarding being able to have peripheral vision as a driver(obviously are not allowed to drive back home in other parts of the umma;but let that pass!). No mention either of the security risk at airports-instead we the little white oiks can carry our identity cards and throw our grannys water bottles away until they cough up at WHS!)
    In short,the usual tumbleweed between the ears when the sistahood meet the flower of female emancipation that is the Muslim in full drag. The liberal elite cannot bear the contradiction so stay schtum until the fence they sit on starts to give way…and then it`s whoever ends up on top.Lets hope that the cringing apologists for Islam get a chance to wave a rainbow flag in Riyadh before very soon and make the programme of same!
    Yvonne Ridley is simply a spiritual Patty Hearst without the reflective hindsight…and no doubt still dines out on Halal in the chattering classes (are vegetarians able to do hahal for her I ask myself!)

    At first, I thought Nicky was giving Burka Woman a hard time. She banged on about choice and her freedom to wear it, and how her face may instill unrestrainable LUST in the audience's men (a little up herself, methinks). Nicky then asked a corker: "Why don't men's faces instill the same lust in women?" She floundered, had no answer – then he PROMTED her. Something about the Prophet's wives, and she was off again.

    Either he felt sorry for her, or the answers were rehearsed before hand and Burkha Woman forgot her lines.

    I really hate that show. Just when it seems like it's about to make a good point, leftiness bounds in to ruin it.

    The solution to muslim male lust is not covering women up, it is the men wearing blinkers so they can't see our women's laviscious flesh. Its as easy as Allah-B-C. Stop looking lustfully at women, you hypocrites.

    Where's Muslim Porn on the Internet eh? Nowhere. Where's "Lady Burqa"? Nowhere. 100m arab men surfing the net are not searching for the latest update from "Modest Wives", they are looking at Naughty Teens from Texas, betcha.

    When arab MEN start wearing a burqua,I'll believe its free choice. Yes its T-V-time. Muslim MP found hanged after burqa sex-game gone wrong. I don't think so.

    The fact they turn up a Stockholm-Syndrome Slapper like Yvonne Ridley and claim "it tells you something about free choice" is a joke.

    Dhimmi Dhimmi Dhimmi Doo Wop Doo Wah.

    Watching the Burqa woman, I found myself lusting after her alluring eyes. She's going to have to cover them up too, I think. Ah well.

    Yes, Stockholm Syndrome seems quite common among such types.

    Geert Wilders made this point in reference to a Dutch case recently:

    'Brussels Journal'

    "Wilders Causes Another Row. Pre-Captivity Stockholm Syndrome"


    "In November 2008 a Dutch journalist, Joanie de Rijke, was abducted by Taliban fighters in Afghanistan. She was held captive, raped repeatedly, and released after six days for a ransom of 100,000 euros ($137,000). After her ordeal, she acknowledged that her captors 'did horrible things to me,' but added in several media interviews 'They also respected me, and emphasized 'They are not monsters.'

    "In a speech in the Dutch Parliament last Thursday, the Dutch opposition leader Geert Wilders referred to Joanie de Rijke’s case.

    “'She was raped, but she was not angry. The journalist who went looking for the Taliban in Afghanistan saw her curiosity end in a cruel ordeal of multiple rape. While this would make others angry or sad, this journalist shows understanding. She says: "They also respected me." And she was given tea and biscuits.'

    “'This story' Wilders said,

    “'is a perfect illustration of the moral decline of our elites. They are so blinded by their own ideology that they turn a blind eye to the truth. Rape? Well, I would put this into perspective, says the leftist journalist: the Taliban are not monsters. Our elites prefer to deny reality rather than face it. One would expect: a woman is being raped and finds this unbearable. But this journalist is not angry because the Muslim involved also showed respect. Our elites, whether they are politicians, journalists, judges, subsidy gobblers or civil servants, are totally clueless. Plain common sense has been dumped in order to deny reality. It is not just this raped journalist who is suffering from Stockholm syndrome, but the entire Dutch elite. The only moral reference they have is: do not irritate the Muslims – that is the one thing they will condemn.'”

    "Stockholm syndrome is a psychological response sometimes seen in hostages, where the hostage shows signs of loyalty to the hostage-taker, regardless of the danger or risk in which the hostages have been placed."
    ('Brussels Journal' 1 June.)

    Yes whenever there's a 'ban the burqa' argument in the MSM, there's usually a photo of some Muslim woman in a burqa who is allegedly thereby being modest, while the only visible part of her body, her eyes show the vanity of eyeliner, mascara and eye-shadow. (The same applies to those devious Muslim matrimonial adverts and photos; and, after all, Muslims say that Muslim women should not marry outside Islam.)


  13. DP111 says:

    Mohammed never made a single prophesy. He must be the only prophet who can be prosecuted under the trade descriptions act.

    However, mohammed did engage in all kinds of robberies, with and without violence, acts of terror, and massacre of the entire population of Jews, who he attacked on trumped up grounds of "provocation".


  14. Mark Brentano says:

    I think you run an important weblog, but when anyone writes about banning anything, be it the burqua or any other infantile piece of wish-fulfilment, I feel weary. The whole point of Islam is to censure reality; please don't feel you have to join in.


  15. The Cuckoo says:

    But, Mark Brentano, where do you draw the line as far as freedom of choice goes?

    Can we be sure that these women really do want to wear this outfit? An even if they do, is that only because the wearing of such an item has been drummed into them since they were very young? Is that really a free choice? I dont think so.

    Conversely, the husbands of the women I see wandering around Asda seem to dress in variety of western styles. The men, at least, seem to have a choice. That's odd, dont you think?

    I've never seen a man in islamic-style clothes accompanied by a woman in western style clothes… that combination seems somehow not to exist, and yet, if there really was freedom of choice in the female population you'd expect to see it now and again.

    SHARIA in Britain.

    BBC turns a blind eyer to these Islamic encroachments in Britain:

    1.) 'Mail'-

    "Britain has 85 sharia courts: The astonishing spread of the Islamic justice behind closed doors"

    By Steve Doughty-

    "Islamic sharia courts are operating in Britain, a study claimed yesterday.
    The astonishing figure is 17 times higher than previously accepted.

    "The tribunals, working mainly from mosques, settle financial and family disputes according to religious principles. They lay down judgments which can be given full legal status if approved in national law courts.

    "However, they operate behind doors that are closed to independent observers and their decisions are likely to be unfair to women. "

    "Shariah banks encouraged to make more plans to acquire non-Muslim customers"
    (Posted by 'shariahfinancewatch' on June 29th, 2009.)

    "Shariah banks in Europe and Asia are being encouraged to increase their 'socialization' programs so as to attract more non-Muslim customers.

    "This is more proof that Shariah-Compliant Finance is in fact 'missionary work. Shariah finance does not exist merely to give pious Muslims a way to invest according to their religious beliefs. Shariah finance exists to promote Shariah and Islam and pushing it out to non-Muslims is key to them achieving their goal."

    Tory county councillor's sons hammer a woman's face. BBC and rest of MSM not interested.


  18. Jeff says:

    Until very recently the only people in our country that wished to go about wearing masks were bank robbers and terrorists. It's hardly designed to make us feel more accepting and "inclusive" is it? This deliberately alienating and offensive piece of apparel has been banned in relatively moderate Muslim countries like Turkey. It should also be banned here.

    Yes and this during a debate about the Burqa, how bizarre! Apparently these Burka wearers are kinda hard to get on TV. Second only to Catholic priests on a Sunday apparently.
