The BBC breathlessly reports that a Bridgwater social club has gone up in smoke and are claiming it was definitely an arson attack by the far right EDF who very definitely attacked it because it was rumoured the club had received a membership application from a Muslim, and in a positive move for community cohesion the club was actively considering letting him join.
Locals say there are EDF links to the site.
The BBC report that the police, who say they are investigating the ‘suspicious’ fire, will be maintaining 24 hour patrols in ‘vulnerable’ sites which suggests that further attacks may follow. The Muslim community is living in fear of this wave of anti-Muslim attacks.
That of course is not what the BBC said…..everyone knows that EDF isn’t the EDL…don’t they?
However a similar approach was taken by the BBC to the recent fires at a Muslim community centre and a Muslim school.
The BBC reported that the two fires were ‘attacks’…long before police made some arrests for the school fire...but nowhere was there a statement from the police saying that the fires were arson nor of course, who started the fires.
The police have been patrolling various Muslim sites just in case these were arson attacks…but that was precautionary….
The BBC’s Danny Shaw interprets that as:
“This suggests the Met believes further attacks may follow.”
No..it doesn’t, what it ‘suggests’ is that police didn’t know…they didn’t even know if these were ‘attacks’, but were taking precautions.
As the BBC itself reports:
“Detectives are working tirelessly to establish whether these fires were started deliberately, and if so, to catch those responsible.”
The BBC round it all off with this pronouncement of implied guilt:
Following the fire, police said, the letters “EDL” (English Defence League) were found sprayed on the side of the building. [ref. the first fire]
The blaze prompted local Muslim groups to call for the authorities to take “serious action” over anti-Islam attacks.
What ‘anti-Islam’ attacks?
The police had made no statement that this was arson…they were just investigating ‘suspicious’ fires.
Just as with the Boston bombings the BBC leapt to conclusions that it wanted to be true….white racists attack Muslims in this case…may be true…but the BBC had no evidence of that at all….but that didn’t stop them running stories implying such a thing….and feeding the Islamophobia industry that glories in the death of people like Lee Rigby as it cranks up the motors to claim that Muslims are the real vicitms of such attacks….
The BBC are once again actually encouraging Muslims to be afraid, encouraging them to think that there is a wave of anti-Muslim attacks…despite the evidence being that there are in fact very few such attacks.
The BBC are in fact helping to stir up discontent, fear and anger…and potentially the radicalisation of Muslims.
Ironic when the BBC does everything it can to persuade the British Public that they have nothing to fear from Muslims or Islam…..everytime a bomb goes off or a Muslim terror cell appears in court or a grooming gang attacks only white girls, or two Muslims attempt to behead a British soldier on the streets of a British town….or an MP gets stabbed.
In contrast there is this report today in which the BBC report a ‘spokesperson’ who is quick off the mark to say ‘nothing to do with Islam’ here:
‘A spokesperson said early indications suggested the incident was not linked to any wider issues or recent events in the county.’
