British Woman Faces Years In Prison After Violent Muslim Husband She Tried Leaving Accused Her Of Adultery

A British woman is facing the prospect of spending the next five years in prison after her violent Muslim husband she tried leaving told police in Bahrain she had committed adultery. Like all Islamic nations ruled by the backwards  sharia law. Women have virtually no rights and adultery is considered more severe  in some cases than murder. 

The unfortunate thing is this entire ordeal could have been avoided had the woman or her family been educated on the incompatibility of Islam with everything else before she blindly married a Muslim and moved to a nation governed by the same outdated law as 1500 years ago. To many people are under the misguided impression that Islam is not that different to other religions. Believing it is the very watered down version of Islam which stealth jihad groups in the West keep telling us it is……. WRONG.

TellMama, MCB, CAIR etc are trying to sell Islam to the public in non-Muslim nations so naturally miss out all the bad parts. They want people to accept Islam as part of everyday life, so portray sharia as some sort of spiritual guidance to living their lives in a religious way. As much as they wish, Muslims in the West have no choice but to live under the laws of the land they are living in and cannot live under real sharia law.

 Forget anything Muslim dawah groups and leftists say what Islam is or isn’t. Islam is nothing like other religions which are purely a spiritual thing. The real Islam is a totalitarian barbaric political ideology that does not separate  faith and state. Everything  in life falls under the jurisdiction of Islam in places such as Bahrain, Saudi, Pakistan and everywhere else sharia law is implemented. Women have zero rights and treated like animals who have no role in life other than serving the needs of the husband. Object to sex, then its ok to rape her. Speak out of turn its ok to hit them. Go to the police they do nothing as the females word is worthless compared to a mans. The lawmakers and judges are not legal experts but Muslim religious scholars.

Everything is about Islam, meaning Muslims especially the male ones have a completely different way of thinking and outlook to normal rational people. We constantly see this in Muslims here and how they treat women. Marrying a Muslim and moving to his homeland under sharia law is a disaster waiting to happen.

Three British Muslim Groups Designated As Terrorists

Three so called legitimate British Muslim groups : Islamic Relief,  Muslim Association of Britain (MAB),   Cordoba Foundation,  have been included on a list of 85 designated terrorist organizations by the UAE government  which also  included  ISIS, Boko Haraam ,Al-Qaeda and the Muslim brotherhood. Bearing in mind that UAE is a hard line Islamic state who have good knowledge of terrorist goings on in the region,you cant help believe these British based Islamic groups are up to no good.

Islamic Relief:

A huge British based Islamic charity which is one of the biggest NGOs in the world. With a mega income of almost £100 million a year. A large chunk of that comes in the way of government funding comes from us in the UK and other Western Governments, the United Nations and the European Union. For a number of years the Israeli Ministry for Foreign Affairs designated IRW itself a terrorist front, IRW appears to be a hub for donations from charities accused of links to Hamas, Al Qaeda and other terror groups.

A report by Stand for Peace believes that IRW is an extremist organization with a pro-terror agenda.First, IRW’s accounts reveal that it has partnered with a significant number of organizations that are linked to terrorism. Second, IRW’s trustees are personally connected to extreme Islamist groups with connections to terror. Finally, IRW and some of its subsidiary branches have run events with extremist, anti-Semitic and pro-terror speakers.

Islamic relief fundraising events held here in the UK have often featured some of the worlds most repulsive hate preachers

More eye opening info on Islamic Relief can be seen in this Stand For Peace report

 Muslim Association of Britain (MAB:

Muslim Association of Britain (MAB) is an umbrella group of Muslims in the UK heavily associated with the Muslim Brotherhood.The MAB was founded in 1997 by Kamal el-Helbawy
a lifelong member of the Muslim Brotherhood who was at that time its spokesperson and representative in Europe.In a 2004 statement the MAB said  “MAB enjoys good relation with every mainstream Islamic organisation in the UK and abroad among them is Muslim Brotherhood which is well respected “.

Their extremist views and belief in political Islam were shown when a newspaper published by the MAB for the September 2002 Stop the War protest suggested that apostasy from Islam could be a ‘religious offence punishable by death,’ and said the MAB shares the Muslim Brotherhood’s goal for ‘the widespread implementation of Islam as a way of life; no longer to be sidelined as merely a religion’.

The MAB has organised and promoted events with hate cleric Anwar al-Awlaki at a time when he was wanted for questioning by the FBI, over his involvement with the 9/11 attackers. Another notorious hate cleric they have hosted is Yusuf al-Qaradawi the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood. The fundamentalist preacher is a supporter of jihad, FGM, wife beating and killing anybody who leaves Islam.An islamofascist if there ever was one.

MAB are yet another Islamist group that have links to communists from Socialist Workers Party and their front group, UAF. Heavily involved in the leadership and protests of another SWP front group Stop The War Coalition who openly supported Iraq in the second gulf war against the allied forces. StWC recently protested in London in defence of terrorist ISIS.

The Cordoba Foundation :

The Cordoba Foundation are a Muslim think tank which claims to be independent but in truth lobbies on behalf of the Muslim Brotherhood ans other Islamists. It works closely with other British extremist groups which seek the creation of an Islamic dictatorship, or caliphate, in Europe. Its agenda has similarities with that of the Muslim Brotherhood with many experts on Islamic extremism claiming Cordoba is a Muslim Brotherhood front group. Cordoba Foundation, were described by the Prime Minister, David Cameron, as a “political front for the Muslim Brotherhood”.

Cordoba leader Anas Al-Tikriti is said to be the UK leader of the islamist Muslim Brotherhood. He is the son of Osama Al-Tikriti, one of the leaders of the Iraqi Islamic Party representing the Muslim Brotherhood in that country. In addition to his role at Cordoba, Al-Tikriti is one of the leaders of the British Muslim Initiative (BMI), part of the U.K. Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Association of Britain (MAB) had for many years been the most active organization in the U.K Muslim Brotherhood but many of the leaders of the MAB left in 2007 to form the BMI. The split was said to be caused over involvement with far left  politics in particular involvement with the Socialist Workers Party ( Unite Against Fascism) in setting up Stop the War Coalition.

Good News London Jihadist Killed In Syria

A Muslim terrorist from London has been killed whilst fighting in Syria. Abu Daighum al-Britani was said to be a leader of a platoon of British islamists allied with Al Qaeda linked group ISIS.

I don’t usually talk bad of the dead as life is a valuable gift and the loss of it is tragic. But this is one of the few exceptions i will make as i have absolutely no sympathy what so ever. He went to Syria to kill others in the name of Islam. He was pictured showing off with the body of murdered troops loyal to Assad. He got what he deserves.

He is one less Muslim terrorist we now have to worry about returning to the UK.

London Islamist leader ‘killed in Syria’

 Evening Standard

Waging war: Abu Daighum al-Britani, left with Abu Abdurrahman al-Britani, who is also from London

Updated: 11:53, 03 June 2014

A suspected senior London member of a terror group fighting in Syria has been killed, it was reported today.

Abu Daighum al-Britani is said to be a leader in the Rayat al-Tawheed, a  collection of British fighters allied to the extremist rebel group Islamic State of Iraq and al Sham, or ISIS.

About 20 British fighters are believed to have been killed in the civil war.

The Rayat al-Tawheed or Banner of God group said in a statement online: “May Allah accept him.”

It is thought Abu Daighum is one of two London fighters who are leading members of the British terror faction.

In one online photograph he is shown holding the head of a decapitated government fighter, and he is also believed to have appeared in a Banner of God video posted on Facebook in January trying to recruit “gangsters” from  the capital for jihad in Syria.

In another photograph he and fellow Londoner Abu Abdurrahman al-Britani pose with Kalashnikov rifles. The pair have been uploading propaganda pictures for followers in Britain.

Rayat al-Tawheed operates a number of social networking accounts and the suspected leaders can be heard in videos speaking with London accents.

Hundreds of Britons have travelled to Syria to take part in the fighting with significant numbers joining al Qaeda-linked rebels or other extremist groups battling to topple the regime of president Bashar Assad. Scotland Yard revealed that Syria-related terrorism arrests had soared to 16 so far this year, compared with 24 for all of 2013.

Two men, aged 19 and 20, were arrested at Heathrow airport at the weekend in connection with the Syrian insurgency. There have been warnings about the terror threat to the UK from fighters returning from the conflict in Syria. Foreign Secretary William Hague said they were an “increasing threat to our own national security.”

Shiraz Maher, a senior researcher for the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation based at King’s College London, said: “We believe the main characters involved with Rayat al-Tawheed come from London.

“We have deduced this based on our discussions with foreign fighters, our extensive record-keeping of foreign fighter activity in Syria, and our maintenance of social network maps which allows us to plot activity and associations in a visual form.”

British Muslim Calls His Dead Jihadist Son A Martyr

Reblog From  paulaustinmurphyonislam.blogspot.co.uk

British Muslim father calls his son, who died in Syria, a “martyr”

Last week, Abubaker Deghayes, the father of Brighton teenager Abdullah Deghayes (who was killed in Syria while fighting against Christians, Shia Muslims and the Assad regime)called his son a “martyr”.

“Martyr” is a term Muslims use specifically for those who have died fighting “for the cause of Allah”. It has nothing at all to do with fighting for justice or freedom in the abstract. As I said, it’s is about fighting for Allah and for Islam; as well as for sharia law and an Islamic state.

If Abdullah Deghayes were fighting for justice or freedom in the abstract, he wouldn’t have chosen to specifically fight in Syria. Perhaps he would have chosen to fight for the Buddhist victims of jihad in southern Thailand or the Christian and animist victims of the Islamists in southern Sudan. Alternatively, he might have gone to Saudi Arabia to help stop the Sunni persecution of Shia Muslims or done the same in Bahrain.

Yes, British Sunni Muslims tell us about President Assad’s persecution of Sunni Muslims in Syria. Yet they don’t tell us about the Sunni persecution of Shia Muslims in Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Yemen, etc. and even in places in Europe.

In fact Deghayes’s uncle, Omar – a former Guantanamo detainee – is believed to have died earlier this month in Syria. He was also once taken to Guantanamo because of what he was doing in Pakistan and Afghanistan: which might well have included killing and persecuting Shia Muslims (which is a Sunni pastime in those two countries).

Abdullah Deghayes’s father also used the term “freedom fighter”. Clearly he knew that this term would be more palatable to the gullible kuffar press than “martyr” or “holy warrior”.

In any case, how did Abubaker Deghayes know that his son was exclusively fighting Assad’s troops? There is a 50/50 chance he might also have been beheading innocent Christians, ransacking churches or fighting rival jihadist groups. It’s also possible that Iran’s Hezbollah could have killed him: after all, Iran and Hezbollah are on President Assad’s side.

Of course his father might have had absolutely no idea what really happened at this point. Perhaps this young jihadist/”martyr” didn’t know that much either.

 

British Muslim Extremist Killed Fighting Jihad In Syria

Muslim extremist Abu Layth al-Khorasani is one less potential home grown terrorist we now have to worry about ever returning to the UK to use his new found jihad skills here. He left Britain to join other blood thirsty Islamists in the Syrian jihad. The British jihad leader was shot dead by those he had hoped to kill. If you live by the gun you die by the gun, that’s karma. Khorasani can now enjoy his 72 virgins in paradise promised by Allah to those martyrs killed fighting for Islam.

Gun man: Abu Layth on a truck

A British Muslim who went to Syria to fight with a notorious gang of jihadists has been shot dead.

Abu Layth al-Khorasani is thought to have been leading a British battalion of the ISIS, or Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

He is believed to have taken on his name after arriving in Afghanistan but originally came from a town in the Midlands.

His killing was revealed by a British comrade known as Abu Hafs, who said he fought in the same battle.

He said: “May Allah accept our brother @khorasani_ MashaAllah Beautiful brother that left this dunya Insha Allah hes now a Bird in jannah ALLAHO AKBAR.”

Islamist scholars believe jihadists live in the afterlife as birds.

Asked about how he died, Hafs added: “i dont really know when cuz we attacked from different sides.”

There are thought to be 600 Brits fighting in Syria.

Brothers Akram and Mohamed Sebah, of Holloway, North London, also died while fighting there last month.

ISIS has been blamed for extreme violence against other Islamist groups, Kurds and President Bashar al-Assad’s brutal regime.

MI5 is concerned about radicalised Muslim jihadists coming home to Britain trained by ISIS in weapons and bomb-making.

National security expert Margaret Gilmore said: “It is one of the biggest threats to national security this decade.”

Al-Khorasani posted his last tweet near the northern town of Al-Raii on Thursday.

Heavy fighting there between rival Islamist groups was reported there on Sunday.

Lord Pearson Warns UK Muslim Communities Are Home To “Thousands of Potential Home-Grown Terrorists”

The ex UPIP leader Lord Pearson has warned of the Islamist threat to the UK. Telling Westminster British Muslim communities are home to “thousands of potential home-grown terrorists”. This is something that many of us have been saying for long time. Unfortunately myself,fellow bloggers, the EDL and others involved in trying to stop the threat of political Islam who have constantly said this for years don’t have the same influential audience of peers like Lord Pearson has. So his speaking on this taboo subject is much welcomed.

Baroness Warsi , herself a Muslim sprang to the defence of Islam effectively making out Lord Pearson was something of a racist trying to distort Islam. Its amazing how many non Muslims keep getting told they are distorting Islam 

“Most religions have suffered at most times from extremism. Islam is no exception,” Lady Warsi, who is the first female Muslim cabinet minister, said.Al-Qaeda’s beliefs were “at odds with classical and contemporary” mainstream Islam, she added.”Like all world religions, Islam neither supports nor advocates terrorism,” Lady Warsi told peers.

Rather than keep trying to defend Islam every-time somebody criticizes it does nothing to change anything other than opposing free speech and debate. Warsi and other Muslim apologists would achieve more by tackling the problem. The hate preachers in Mosques speaking unopposed, the fake charities who donate to terrorists, the madrassas where they teach hate. When groups like cagedprisoners and fundraisers like Justice For Anitfa are seen as legit by Muslims and allowed a platform despite the fundraising for jailed terrorists, then something is badly wrong.

Not every Muslim is a Terrorist, but almost every terrorist is a Muslim

Ex-UKIP leader Lord Pearson warns of Islamist threat

Lord Pearson of RannochLord Pearson led UKIP at the 2010 general election

20 November 2013 Last updated at 10:45

UK Muslim communities are home to “thousands of potential home-grown terrorists”, former UK Independence Party leader Lord Pearson has warned.

Such people “hate us with frightening religious fervour”, he said during a parliamentary debate on Islam.

Sharia law was “running de facto in our land” and calls for violence were not simply coming from a “few extremists”.

But faith minister Baroness Warsi said Lord Pearson was either “ignorant” or attempting to “distort” views of Islam.

Lord Pearson, who led UKIP from 2009 to 2010, called a special Westminster debate on Islam.

‘Seething’

He mentioned the 7 July 2005 London bombings and the killing of Drummer Lee Rigby earlier this year, adding: “We see large and growing Muslim communities which are set against integration with the rest of us. We see thousands of home-grown potential terrorists.”

He went on: “We see Sharia law running de facto in our land and we see a birth rate which is several times ours.

“What baffles me completely is that when we do speak against these things, when we dare to say that they come from within Islam, we are told that we are the guilty ones, that it us who are stirring up hate.”

He said: “But the hate lies in the heart of the Islamist. We can only stir it up because it is already there, red hot and seething against us.

“These people hate us with frightening religious fervour and we are right to fear them.”

Lord Pearson quoted Tony Blair, who argued that “this strain (of Islam) is not the province of a few extremists”.

“Evil is at its most destructive when it passes from the individual to the collective,” added the UKIP peer.

Lord Pearson, who sat as a Conservative peer before joining UKIP, told the meeting in Parliament’s Moses Room: “I fear the dark side is moving strongly within Islam.”

‘Condemnation’

For the government, Lady Warsi responded: “I think it is a great shame at best that the noble gentleman has asked this question. It points at best to an ignorance about Islam and at worst a deliberate attempt to perpetuate a distorted image of the faith.”

Being a member of any religion involved “making choices” on how to act on one’s beliefs, the Conservative peer added.

On extremists, Lady Warsi added: “Islam, like all other major religions, is not inherently violent. Passages from sacred texts must be taken in context. It would be possible to distort quotes from any religious text.”

Talking about the killing of Drummer Rigby, she said: “If Islam justified terror, then we would never have seen the out and out condemnation of this brutal murder.”

“Most religions have suffered at most times from extremism. Islam is no exception,” Lady Warsi, who is the first female Muslim cabinet minister, said.

Al-Qaeda’s beliefs were “at odds with classical and contemporary” mainstream Islam, she added.

“Like all world religions, Islam neither supports nor advocates terrorism,” Lady Warsi told peers.

Dangers Of UK based Terrorists As More Muslims Arrested For Terror Offences

The biggest terror threat on British soil is not from Islamic terrorists abroad but those already here in the UK. Those who are already living amongst us, plotting death and destruction from within.

religion_of_peace BRITISH BORN MUSLIM TERRORISTS ARE MAIN THREAT TO UK

On Thursday 31 October, Counter Terrorism officers arrested four people on suspicion of failing to disclose information which might be of assistance in securing the apprehension, prosecution or conviction of a person involved in an act of terrorism contrary to Section 38(b) Terrorism Act 2000. Two men – 31yrs [E] and 21yrs [F] – and a 25 [G] year old woman were arrested at two residential addresses in east London. They have been taken to a London police station where they remain in custody. A 25-year-old man [H] has been arrested at a residential address in Lancashire. He has been taken to a Lancashire police station where he remains in custody. A search has been carried out at an address in Lancashire.
The arrests were in connection with two men stopped under Schedule 7 of the Terrorism Act in Dover on Sunday 22 September, who have been charged in relation to the investigation: [A] Mohammed Hassin Nawaz, 29 (5.01.84), of Dirleton Road, Stratford, E15 and [B] Hamza Nawaz, 22 (27.09.90), of the same address, The men were arrested re-entering the UK with ammunition and terrorist material having been to a Muslim terrorist training camp.
 

Unfortunately Islamic terrorists and wannabe jihadists tend not to advertise it within earshot of the infidels. Neither do they all belong to a certain section of the Muslim community or all dress in a certain way. Foreign immigrants, Muslim students, 2nd generation Muslims born and bred in the UK, white British converts. Take your pick.
The only thing for certain is they are already living amongst us. Most will never have been in trouble,will have a job or go to college mixing with non-Muslims without giving any hint of their true extremist beliefs. That is what makes them all the more dangerous.

Thankfully on the whole our security services and counter terrorism units do a good job of keeping us safe by catching the bastards at the planning stages before they have chance to maim and kill in the name of the blood thirsty Allah. Unfortunately at some point, a group of jihadists are going to slip through that net and like Woolwich, will result in innocent people being killed.

It is quite disturbing to think that people living in the UK and amongst us, Muslims who came here supposedly to seek a better life are plotting to murder innocent people in the land that took them in and gave them a chance for a far better life than back home. That they can harbour that much hatred at people because they aren’t Muslim. With the only reason for doing so is the teachings of Islam, behaving savagely in the ways of the 1st Islamic terrorist Mohammed did 1500 years ago.

Government released figures show that in March 2013 there was 103 (non domestic/separatist related) terrorist prisoners held in the UK. Of them 100 out of 103 declared themselves as Muslims. A Muslim appeasing website called Loonwatch makes the absurd claim that 94% of terrorists are not Muslim. This 94% is often quoted on leftist / commie sites such as Huff Post. Now you can set the record straight that in the UKs case.  97% of terrorist ARE MUSLIM

Of the 2,419 persons arrested for terrorism-related offences since 11 September 2001, 1,198 (50%) self-declared their nationality as from Great Britain or of British dual nationality. Of the remaining persons arrested the most frequent self-declared nationalities were: Algeria (152 persons), Pakistan (125 persons), Iraq (115 persons), Afghanistan (74 persons), Iran (63 persons), India (56 persons), Turkey (45 persons) and Somalia (44 persons).

Of the 249 persons arrested for terrorism-related offences in 2012/13, 105 (42%) were charged,

TellMama / Faith Matters-Fiyaz Mughal’s Islamic Money Making Machine

Every day my email inbox receives countless mails from random’s around the world wanting to tell me how i can be rich. I look at them thinking if only it was that simple its rubbish as i press delete. Until now that is as I have finally discovered the path to the promised land, untold riches, the ultimate get rich scheme for little effort. That path is called Islam.  Start a  Muslim group in the UK, register as a charitable organization and hey presto various government departments and  local authorities will throw large sums of money at you to fund your lavish lifestyle. If your really lucky you can even employ a few of your mates as paid advisors. Hell, mention Islamophobia or community cohesion in your mission statement  and get even more £££££. Its even recession proof as the funds keep being handed out to Muslim groups show despite the government making cuts everywhere else

After yesterdays FOI Exposé when it was revealed Bolton Council have been bank rolling The Bolton Council Of Mosques with grants totalling over £1.1 million. Now following another FOI request, Kafir Crusaders can reveal that Muslim storyteller and fixer of figures Fiyaz Mughal (via TellMama and Faith Matters) has received over £750,000 in the last 5 years from the Department for Communities and Local Government in funding

For background info on Fiyaz Mughal, Tell Mama and Faith Matters i recommend this eye-opening post from fahrenheit211

I confirm that the Department holds the information that you have requested, and I am able to supply it to you. The information that you have requested is as follows. Tell MAMA is a project managed by Faith Matters so it is included in the list of other projects. The payments from DCLG to Faith Matters, the relevant dates and project descriptions, are as follows:

WTF  £37k for a Mosque directory (which are plentiful on-line) in 2008-09 then the same amount again the next year for a directory of Mosques for women ! This is little more than a list of the 100 least sexist and most woman friendly UK mosques. Fiyaz Mughal OBE is certainly in the running to be awarded a BOTD to go alongside his OBE….Bullshitter Off The Decade 

Muslim Savages Acid Attack On 2 British Girls In Zanzibar

Shocking reports of two British females being the victims of a cowardly Muslim acid attack in Zanzibar. The girls were there doing charity work over summer, doing something good to help others less fortunate and this is the gratitude they get from Islamist locals. There is some suggestion that the girls had recently had some kind of altercation with a local Muslim shopkeeper days before the attack. No clues as to what it was over but knowing how the twisted minds of Muslims operate and that both girls were good-looking, it could quite possibly have been an inappropriate sexual comment or unwelcome attention from the Muslim that sparked the row. One of the girls had also been viciously attacked in the street a couple of weeks ago by a female not ‘religion of peace’ follower. The reason for being attacked….singing during ramadam…these people are not right in the head honestly.

Regardless of any run ins the girls had prior, how they was dressed, their race, their religion, or anything else they may have said or done can justify them being victims in this horrific acid attack. Committed by savage Islamic cowards who get their kicks out of inflicting serious amounts of pain on female infidels.

In the UK and the west, Muslims are handled with kid gloves. People going out of their way to pander to their needs. Yet should a non-Muslim go to an Islamic country they get zero. A kafir visitor is literally running the gauntlet and probably as much chance of being the victim of violence by blood thirsty Muslims as being shown any kind of respect. The only difference between Muslims here and those over there. Is that they don’t have to pretend to like you like you or deceive to conceal their real feelings or motives like those based in the UK and Western nations. They act how they feel….with hate!

 

Zanzibar acid attack: British teenagers were ‘targeted’ and had been attacked before

Two British victims of an acid attack in Zanzibar may have been targeted following two previous run-ins with locals, it has emerged.

Two British 18-year-old women were the targets of an acid attack by men riding a motorcycle on the Indian Ocean island of Zanzibar late on Wednesday night, police said.

2:33PM BST 08 Aug 2013

Katie Gee and Kirstie Trup, both aged 18, had argued with a local shopkeeper days before two men on a moped threw acid in their faces and Katie had separately been attacked for singing during Ramadan.

One friend suggested they might have been singled out because they are Jewish, and local police said they wanted to speak a radical Islamic preacher who they believe may have inspired the attack.

The teenagers are due to fly back to the UK overnight and are expected to be taken to hospital for further treatment when they arrive home.

The teenagers from north London were teaching at the St Monica nursery school, linked to the Catholic church, whilst volunteering for a charity called Art in Tanzania after finishing their A-levels.

Two days ago Miss Gee tweeted that she had met former US president Bill Clinton, who visited Zanzibar on Sunday to pledge support for anti-malaria work through his Clinton Health Access Initiative.

Bashir Ismail, of Art in Tanzania, said they had argued with a nearby shop owner a few days ago when they went for groceries.

Mr Ismail said the two women, who were staying in Stone Town, were properly dressed when the attack happened as they were going for dinner at a beach restaurant.

“The two attackers passed by several white tourists in the area and threw acid after reaching closer to them which raises suspicion of a planned attack,” Mr Ismail said.

A friend said Katie, a former pupil at the £5,375 per term Francis Holland School in Sloane Square, Chelsea, had also been attacked two weeks ago.

Oli Cohen, 21, said: “The girls were walking through the town singing on Ramadan when a Muslim lady came up to her shouting. She lost her temper and reacted violently – and hit her in the face for singing.

“I don’t know what song it was but it wouldn’t have been anything excessively aggressive or rude – they’re so well-mannered and respectful they had gone to the town to do voluntary charity work.

“It was an isolated incident and I don’t believe it had any connection, she didn’t suffer any serious injuries – but they were both extremely shaken up by it. Not enough to come home but I know they felt uneasy being in public. Some people would stare or say things to them.

“I think white good-looking north London Jewish girls walking around in Zanzibar always make them a target as it’s a Muslim country.

“It’s a beautiful location and it was a trip that was supposed to be special for them, one to treasure forever. But it’s ended in disaster.”

The friends were in the final week of their trip on the island, a popular tourist destination famous for its white-sand beaches and spice plantations, when the attack happened in Stone Town, the island’s capital, on Wednesday evening.

Two men on a moped drove past the pair and the pillion passenger threw the liquid at them before speeding off.

Speaking for the first time since the attack, Katie’s mother Nicky Gee said: “I’ve spoken to my daughter – her whole face and body is burnt.

“It was an acid attack on two English girls. They were dressed appropriately – they just attacked two young girls.

“We can’t get them home yet. If the Royal family were there I’m sure they would get them out.”

Asked if she had any idea when her daughter would be flown home, Mrs Gee said: “Between the Foreign Office and the insurers I have no idea.”

Mrs Gee was speaking from the home of the Trup family in Hampstead, north London, a short distance from her own home in East Finchley.

A family friend said: “We want the insurance company to stop counting the beans and just get them home – that’s our main priority.

“Everyone’s priority is to get these girls back. They haven’t left the hospital yet.

“We are talking to the Foreign Office, trying to get the insurance company to move things along. We want them back so they can be treated in the UK.”

Kirstie’s father Marc Trup, a dentist and company director, said: “We’re trying to get them back as soon as possible. We’re trying to organise a medivac flight.”

The teenagers both suffered injuries to their faces, chests and hands, and were transferred to a hospital on the Tanzanian mainland.

Jakaya Kikwete, Tanzania’s president, visited them at the Aga Khan Hospital in Dar es Salaam and promised that their attackers would be found.

“It’s a shameful attack that tarnishes the image of our country, I order security agents to speed up the investigations and arrest the suspects,” he said.

Tanzanian police want to question an Islamist preacher to question him about the acid attack, a senior officer said.

Sheikh Issa Ponda Issa heads the Council of the Islamic Organisation, a radical Muslim outfit based in Dar es Salaam, and was found guilty in May of breaking and entering linked to riots that followed reports of a Christian boy desecrating a copy of the Koran. He was given a 12 month suspended sentence.

Sheikh Issa spent a week in Zanzibar at the beginning of August, preaching in mosques and advocating his supporters to demonstrate “like in Egypt” in order to secure the release of 10 imprisoned members of an Islamic separatist group.

“He has been going around telling youth that they must stage endless demonstrations and protests like in Egypt to disrupt the government and show that he has power,” an officer based in Stone Town said on the condition he was not named.

“He has not directly said the tourists should be targeted, but scaring them can be a way for his supporters to think they are achieving his aims, even more effectively than street actions, because tourist dollars are what keeps the government working.

“We want to talk to him, but his whereabouts are not known. We are looking for him. We do not think he ordered this thing, but we think he can tell us useful information.”

There had been talk in Zanzibar that a group called Uamsho, or The Awakening in Swahili, were planning public protests or some kind of action to coincide with the end of Ramadan on Thursday.

Uamsho wants Zanzibar to split from the Tanzanian mainland, which it blames for bringing alchohol and Western ways to the islands. Sheikh Pondo visited imprisoned Uamsho members in jail while he was in Zanzibar, the officer confirmed.

“There has been speculation that they would do something during Ramadan or Eid to show that they were still a force to be reckoned with,” one European hotel manager who attends regular security briefings with the island’s police said.

“To be honest, we expected maybe a street march or something. Throwing acid at two tourists seems way off from their usual methods.”

A doctor at the hospital who was part of the team that attended to the teenagers said that their injuries were “mild”.

“We suspect that whatever the liquid was, it was not true acid, it may have been diluted,” he said. “They have burns on their hands from wiping the liquid off. They have minor injuries on their chests and their necks. Considering it could have been very bad, what they have is quite mild.

“They were shocked, of course, but they are not feeling very bad.”

The teenagers were on a trip organised by Kent-based i-to-i Travel. A spokesman for the company said: “They were flown to Dar es Salaam in mainland Tanzania for medical treatment and have now been released from hospital.

“All our efforts remain focused on ensuring they are supported whilst assisting them and their relatives with the arrangements for their return home.

“i-to-i Travel is working with the authorities in their investigations and continue to liaise closely with the British consulate in Tanzania.

“The motive for the incident is as yet not known and we will await the report from the local authorities in Zanzibar before any comment can be made.

“The female clients had been volunteer teachers on Zanzibar and were in the final week of their trip.

“The safety of our customers is of paramount importance to us and our own investigation will be launched as soon as it is possible to do so and more information will be released as it becomes available.”

“Police in Zanzibar have launched a manhunt, and we ask for public assistance in identifying the attackers,” said Mkadam Khamis, the island’s deputy police commissioner.

The attack on the women came at the end of the Muslim holy fasting month of Ramadan, and as people began to celebrate the Eid holiday.

“The motive for the attack on the volunteers aged 18 years, has not been established. Investigations are on until we apprehend the criminals,” Mr Khamis said.

Zanzibar has long been a favoured holiday destination for foreign tourists, and there have rarely been tensions between the majority Muslim population and holidaymakers relaxing in bikinis on beaches or drinking in bars.

Recently however there have been a series of attacks targeting representatives of different religions.

These include an acid attack on a Muslim cleric in November, and the shooting dead of a Catholic priest in February. Another priest was shot and wounded in December.

The semi-autonomous Zanzibar archipelago lies 20 miles off the Tanzanian mainland.

A spokeswoman for the Foreign Office said: “We are aware of an incident and are providing consular assistance.”

The Foreign Office travel advice for Tanzania warns that although most visits to the country are trouble-free, “violent and armed crime is increasing”.

The advice on its website says: “Mugging, bag snatching (especially from passing cars) and robbery have increased throughout the country.”

It adds: “In Zanzibar incidents have taken place in Stone Town and on popular tourist beaches.”

Fiyaz Mughal And Tell Mama Pay The Ultimate Price For ‘Cycle Of Violence’ Taqiyya

Follow up to last weeks Tell Mama Tell Lies,  Anti-Muslim Attacks Taqiyya

My heart bleeds for Tell Mama the anti Muslim attack monitor and its lying mufti Fiyaz Mughal. The Telegraphs Andrew Gilligan has today revealed that  Tell Mama will be receiving no more of the taxpayers hard-earned money to bankroll the Islamist opponents of free speech, including the well paid for doing little salary of Fiyaz Mughal and his Muslim only staff. I’ll try not to laugh too much as i type LOL

Mughal certainly made the most of his 5 minutes of fame since Woolwich managing to get his face on almost every TV channels news reports as well-being quoted  in newspaper reports on a daily basis. He spent that much time in the spotlight telling all and sundry how Muslims were the are victims, that he is now at z-list celebrity level, managing to become the UK’s  5th most well-known Muslim behind Abu Hamza, Anjem Choudary, George Galloway and Mo Ansar.  Making the most of his new-found fame, it wouldn’t surprise me should the extremists from Islam TV offer him his own TV show. Another distinct possibility is Unite Against Fascism snapping him up. They are quite partial to having z listers as anti fascists such as Ken Livingstone and Doreen Lawrence. Mughal could be their full-time sympathy seeking Islamoaner as Al-Qaeda supporting vice chair Azad Ali with his Muslim extremist background doesn’t pull the nations heartstrings to well.

Civil servants and Police officers raised concerns about  Tell Mama’s methods and the authenticity of the anti Muslim attacks being logged. Maybe they should listen to patriots a little more as myself  like countless others have been critical of TellMama and dubious about its whole existence and motives since it started. It would have saved Nick Clegg wasting £214,000 of the taxpayers money in a grant on top of the £160,ooo it had already received which i wasn’t  aware of till now. This new figure makes Tell Mama’s value for money even less. For its first year’s not so massive amount of 18 prosecutions that now works out at just over £20,000 of grant money each!

So what exactly has Mughal been using the £375,000 that it has had in grants over the last year.A nice big fat salary for himself no doubt for starters. As far as i could tell commie trolls such as Evelyn Cook and her multiple fake accounts provided Tell Mama with most of its reports. Even then it averaged out at 2 a day only which Mughal could have easy logged in his spare time say an hour a night. Why he had to employ his Muslim only staff  is beyond me. Looks like jobs for the boys to me, a meal ticket for his Faith Matters people whilst they engage in Dawwah pushing Islam onto the public

I imagine Tell Mama will now disappear into obscurity with no credibility or grant to pay Mughal’s salary. Times up for this Islamic scam. Good riddance 

Muslim hate monitor to lose backing

Ministers end funding for body that claimed ‘wave of attacks’ against Islam.

7:00AM BST 09 Jun 2013

A controversial project claiming to measure anti-Muslim attacks will not have its government grant renewed after police and civil servants raised concerns about its methods.

The project, called Tell Mama, claimed that there had been a “sustained wave of attacks and intimidation” against British Muslims after the killing of Drummer Lee Rigby, with 193 “Islamophobic incidents” reported to it, rising to 212 by last weekend.

The group’s founder, Fiyaz Mughal, said he saw “no end to this cycle of violence”, describing it as “unprecedented”. The claims were unquestioningly repeated in the media.

Tell Mama and Mr Mughal did not mention, however, that 57 per cent of the 212 reports referred to activity that took place only online, mainly offensive postings on Twitter and Facebook, or that a further 16 per cent of the 212 reports had not been verified. Not all the online abuse even originated in Britain.

Contrary to the group’s claim of a “cycle of violence” and a “sustained wave of attacks”, only 17 of the 212 incidents, 8 per cent, involved the physical targeting of people and there were no attacks on anyone serious enough to require medical treatment.

There have been a further 12 attacks on Islamic buildings, three of them serious, including a probable arson attack on a Muslim community centre in north London, which burned it to the ground.

Tell Mama supporters launched a furious campaign of protest againstThe Sunday Telegraph after it disclosed the breakdown last week, with round-robin emails to the newspaper accusing it of behaviour “better suited to the days of 1930s Germany”.

However, The Sunday Telegraph has now learned that even before Woolwich, the communities minister, the Liberal Democrat MP Don Foster, called Mr Mughal to a meeting and said that Tell Mama’s grant would not be renewed.

The organisation has received a total of £375,000 from the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) since last year.

“Mr Mughal was giving data on attacks to DCLG which wasn’t stacking up when it was cross-referenced with other reports by Acpo [the Association of Chief Police Officers],” said one source closely involved in counter-extremism.

“He was questioned by DCLG civil servants and lost his temper. He was subsequently called in by Don Foster and told that he would receive no more money.”

A senior Liberal Democrat source confirmed the sequence of events, saying: “There was a bit of a spat. He was called in and told that Acpo had cast doubt on his figures. He was told that he would be closely monitored for the remaining period of the grant and that there would be no more money.”

A DCLG spokesman confirmed that Tell Mama’s funding would not be renewed and refused to deny that officials had raised concerns about its methods.

Tell Mama claimed in March that anti-Muslim crime was “rising”, even though the group had only been in operation at that stage for a year and had no previous figures to compare with.

Other figures, collected by the police, show that hate crime in mainly Muslim areas has fallen in the past 10 years. The only large force that collects figures on specifically anti-Muslim crime, the Metropolitan Police, reported an 8.5 per cent fall in such crimes between 2009 and 2012.

There was a spike in anti-Muslim incidents after the killing of Drummer Rigby. However, contrary to Tell Mama’s claims that it was “unprecedented”, the Met’s assistant commissioner, Cressida Dick, told MPs last week that it was “slightly less” than after previous terror attacks.

“There has not been such a very big increase in attacks as we might have feared,” she said. Mr Mughal himself has now admitted to the BBC that the number of physical attacks was “small”.

Tell Mama has also been using its budget to threaten members of the public with libel actions for criticising it on Twitter.

In mid-May, before Woolwich, one Jewish activist, Ambrosine Chetrit, received a threatening letter from solicitors after she tweeted that “Tell Mama are sitting on Twitter on the EDL hashtag, threatening anyone and everyone whose comments they do not like about Islam”.

Tell Mama also objected to a tweet in which Ms Chetrit said it was “trying to close down pro-Israel [Twitter] accounts daily”.

Other recipients of legal threats at the same time include Atma Singh, a former race adviser to the then Labour mayor of London, Ken Livingstone, who received a legal letter from Tell Mama after tweeting that it “gives a platform to Islamists”.

Tell Mama did not claim that either of these individuals was racist or anti-Muslim. But it said their tweets were false and “defamatory” of Mr Mughal, had “damaged” his reputation, causing him “distress and embarrassment”, and demanded immediate apologies and damages. Up to four other people are believed to have received similar threats.

The letters were written by Farooq Bajwa, a solicitor who has acted for a number of Islamists and Islamist sympathisers, including the Palestinian radical leader Raed Salah and the Respect MP George Galloway.

The letters to Mr Singh and Ms Chetrit were sent to their private home addresses, neither of which are in the public domain. Ms Chetrit’s lawyer, Mark Lewis, who has acted for many phone-hacking victims, has reported Mr Bajwa and Tell Mama to the police after they refused to say how they obtained the information.

“I have been instructed to resist the claim,” said Mr Lewis. “It has no merit. I have not had any response as to how my client’s name and address were obtained.”

Mr Singh said: “I find it absurd that someone can threaten people on this kind of basis and use libel in this political way. This is nothing to do with Islamophobia – they are just trying to shut down debate.”

Ms Chetrit said: “It is very worrying and scary. All the people who have been threatened by Tell Mama are pro-Israeli.”

The DCLG claimed that Tell Mama’s funding was always due to cease in September 2013 and that Mr Foster was “very impressed” by the “progress” the group had made.

However, the funding of Tell Mama was described as “ongoing” in the Government’s “hate crime action plan” last year and only in November Nick Clegg, the Deputy Prime Minister, announced that £214,000 of “new” and “further” funding had been granted to Tell Mama.

Mr Mughal said: “The meeting with DCLG officials related to the publication of 2012 anti-Muslim prejudice figures and having an independent review of those figures, which is good practice.

“This was agreed and has always been part of the process. The ‘loss of temper’ did not relate to the methodology of data collection.”

Mr Mughal said that no public money had been used to issue the libel threats.

He said: “We will defend the right of all people to express their identities and their support for countries and groups freely.

However, we have the right to defend the integrity of our work when people broadcast [on Twitter] comments that are simply untrue and highly damaging about us.”

He declined to explain how the private addresses had been obtained, but said it was “within the law.”
