Life changing events? How to cope with them? Who to ask?
The BBC chooses Brendan Cox and a survivor of the 7/7 attacks….out of all the survivors they manage to pick a Muslim, one who runs the Jan Trust which teaches that Muslims are right to be angry about the West’s involvement in world affairs [Muslim] and of course about Israel…get angry it says but don’t be violent….deradicalising, anti-extremism…or the opposite?….
British survivors of terror attacks are coming together to offer a new voice for survivors. “Survivors against Terrorism” will campaign for policies to tackle the causes of attacks, and we’re speaking to two of the founders: Brendan Cox, husband of murdered MP, Jo Cox, and Sadja Mughal, who was in the next carriage down from one of the 7/7 bombers, when he detonated his device in London in 2005.
I imagine ‘Survivors against Terrorism’ is going to be a highly political, pretty one-sided affair that tells us the real threat is right-wing extremism and that the Government’s Prevent strategy is failing and is alienating Muslims….the two founders being a very political lefty and a Muslim. The ‘steering group’ seems weighted against the ‘Right’ with Cox, Mughal, Mike Haines who travels the country lecturing about the wonders of unity and the horrors of hate crime [right-wing] despite his brother being beheaded in Islam’s name and Dan Hett [ex-BBC] whose main concern is the Far-Right despite his brother being killed in the Manchester bombing.
Can’t find any mention of this on the BBC despite all their concern about sexual abuse…and in light of Cox’s own pious preachings….
Murdered MP Jo Cox’s husband was reported to police over sex assault claim in Harvard bar – nine months before his wife’s death
A new charity sex scandal erupted last night after it emerged that the husband of murdered Labour MP Jo Cox was once accused of groping a senior US government official.
The woman reported Brendan Cox to American police, claiming he assaulted her late at night at Harvard University – although Mr Cox strongly denies the allegation.
Her complaint came soon after Mr Cox quit as a senior executive with the Save The Children in 2015 following separate claims of inappropriate behaviour towards staff.
Mr Cox declined to comment last night, but his lawyers said he denies the ‘spurious allegations’ and says no sexual assault took place.
Take look at this article from the BBC….shame such slanted tosh comes from the respected RUSI…no surprise the BBC is pushing it….co-authored by BBC.’…..….looks like ‘Mo’ may have had a bit too much influence….commissioned by the BBC…’Co-authored with colleague Mo again, this one focuses on extreme right wing terrorism and its particular expression through lone actors for the
They present this as if it is a major and extensive problem…
Plans to kill by lone individuals such as these have been a persistent feature of the extreme right wing for many years.
It’s a long article in which the first bit is running through some basic groundwork but then we get onto the real message..
None of this paints a picture of particularly sophisticated terrorist plots, or networks, in particular among those on the extreme right.
Rather, it suggests isolated individuals acting out an extreme ideology – and, in most cases, this has been the nature of the plots.
Potentially more worrying for the UK is the emergence of a more organised extreme right wing, with the recent banning of the neo-Nazi group National Action, for example.
Yep, National Action, a tiny group of like-minded souls who get absolutely no traction in mainstream society….unlike Muslim terrorists whose motivations and ideology get widespread support in their own community though most Muslims will say they are against the violent expression of that…as with the Jan Trust. The communities that feed on conspiracy theories and widespread acceptance of the narrative that the West is attacking ‘Islam’, a narrative that the BBC pushes relentlessly and gives credibility to, are the breeding ground for the terrorists…and help recruit active members, those who facilitate their actions and those who stand by with silent approval doing nothing to stop them.
Here’s the meat and potatoes of the article with a clear attempt to cast the net as wide as possible and implicate anyone who says anything critical of Islam, extreme liberalism or even Marxism bizarrely….
Across the continent, the ideology around far-right extremists is varied and diverse, but some common threads can be found.
Racial “purity” is often highlighted, as are claims that the world is run by powerful elites, including Marxists, liberals and Jews.
Some minority groups are presented as posing a threat to European culture and society.
Er…The Western world is run by liberals…to its great cost in many cases….and some minority groups are presented as a threat to European culture and society…because they are a threat so radically opposed to Western society are they….and the minority groups include Marxists. Many ‘liberals’, they who see the promotion of interationalism, globalisation [and paradoxically anti-capitalism] and open borders are pretty much aligned with the Marxists as we see with the great and the good at the BBC championing Corbyn.
And here’s the usual refusal to accept any criticism as valid, presumably ‘xenophobic beliefs’ are those criticising Muslims behaving badly ‘in the name of Allah’ and those arguing to control immigration, with the claim that it gives licence to violent extremists and thus is a danger to the glorious multicultural society we live in….so close it down…this is pure Muslim/left wing propaganda trying to control and police what can be said…..
The continued existence of such people – often drawing on the ideology of a more organised extreme right wing, or the xenophobic beliefs of a vocal minority – has a damaging effect on society, causing frictions between communities and tearing at our social fabric.
Not only do their actions hurt those caught up in attacks, but they can drive others on the extreme right, as well violent Islamists – who use the sense of a divided society to justify their actions.
It is easy to simply dismiss Osborne and Stables as pathetic losers angry at society.
But they represent a broader trend that has worrying potential ramifications for the United Kingdom.
