Moaning Muslims Claim Discrimination Over Catholic School Prioritising Baptised Children

SHOCK!!  HORROR!! An oversubscribed Catholic school planning to prioritise  children  baptised over those who are not including Muslims. Well Muslim parents are kicking off now that despite it being a Catholic school (which they are not) that the decision is discriminatory to Muslims.

Spitting their dummy out like a spoilt child and playing the victim is one of the very few things that Muslims actually excel at.

The Muslim parents claim they wish their children to a faith-based education. In that case why would they want a faith that is based around Jesus being the Son of God? Something that the Islamic religion says is untrue.  

Catholic schools in the UK are expected to accept a certain % pupils of different faiths anyway. They have not really been faith based schools since children were taught by nuns and monks years ago. Other than the odd trip to the  church for mass and maybe an extra hours worth of religious studies (which can be opted out of by parents) the education is the same as any other school based on the national curriculum.

Most likely this is the best performing school in the area and that is the real reason why they want their children to go there !! 

MUSLIM parents have branded plans to prioritise places in denominational schools for Catholics as discriminatory and divisive.

The concerns were raised during a consultation into proposals by East Renfrewshire Council to give priority to baptised children if its top-performing Catholic schools – such as St Ninian’s in Giffnock – become oversubscribed.

While the existence of state-funded Catholic schools is enshrined in legislation there is no such educational provision for other faiths.

As a result, many families of other religions choose a Catholic education and in East Renfrewshire 27 per cent of Muslim children go to denominational schools – some 260 pupils.

In a review of the council’s consultation, national schools body Education Scotland stated: “The proposal was seen by respondents of the Muslim faith to be discriminatory or divisive against other faith groups and that implementing the proposal could result in less diversity within denominational schools.”

Concerns were also expressed by the parent council of St Cadoc’s Primary School in Newton Mearns who noted their school had a number of Muslim families who disagreed with the proposal.

The council’s summary of consultation responses stated: “It was deeply regrettable in their view that the approach would adversely affect some families and that the proposal is seen by some in their community as divisive.”

East Renfrewshire Muslim Forum said many Muslim parents wanted to send their children to a faith school and, with no local state-funded Muslim school available, chose a Catholic school for a faith-based education.

Families also raised concerns the council has spent £18 million on a new joint faith campus for Catholic and Jewish pupils but there is no similar provision for Muslims who make up one third of the school population of the existing Jewish school.
Despite the controversy, East Renfrewshire Council has recommended approval of the plan to give priority to baptised Catholics.

A spokeswoman said: “The authority is not excluding any group through the proposal, but merely seeking to form arrangements to be able to prioritise places should a school be oversubscribed by catchment pupils.”

The council has also promised to step up efforts to crack down on families who try and cheat their way into East Renfrewshire schools.

Mhairi Shaw, the council’s director of education, said extra surveillance and even criminal proceedings would be considered to prevent such fraud.

She said: “We will be asking for rental agreements to be for
a minimum of one year instead of the six months previously asked for.

“Where we have significant doubt about where an applicant resides, or if we receive allegations of false information, the steps we take may include surveillance.

“Any attempts to obtain a place by deception may result in consideration of criminal proceedings.”

The education committee will consider the report next month, with the changes applying from 2017.

Video: Muslim Thugs Pack Attack Sikh In Birmingham

Several newspapers have picked up on this violent unprovoked hate crime following a video being posted to the “Daily Sikh Updates” Facebook page showing a British Sikh being pack attacked by Muslim thugs in Birmingham. Although most including the UK’s Independent newspaper omitted that this religiously motivated hate crime was committed by Muslims.

Despite Sikhs originating from the same sub continent as the majority of Muslims in the UK. The two religious groups couldnt be more different. The Sikhs have integrated with others,make no demands or expect no special treatment, hard working, law abiding and have made a positive contribution to British society in general. As opposed to Muslims who are the total opposite. To be honest i cant think of a single good thing they have contributed to our nation only negative.

A video showing a Sikh man being brutally beaten up on a crowded street in Birmingham, the UK’s second-largest city, went viral on Internet, prompting the police to launch a probe into the suspected hate crime.

The video, titled ‘Singh Brutally Beaten in Birmingham’, was posted online on the ‘Daily Sikh Updates’ Facebook site.

It shows the Sikh man desperately trying to protect his face as a man punches and kicks him while a crowd looks on.
“It is unknown why the Singh was attacked, but the suspects are on the loose. A person can be seen on the doorway unconscious and probably the first victim of the attack. The bystanders refused to help the two victims until a person from the crowd comes in towards the end of the video,” the website said in its appeal for information.

The appeal also claims the suspects involved in the attack are Muslim but West Midlands Police are yet to confirm or deny that report.
The police have urged the victim to come forward as they investigate if the attack which took place on Sunday was religiously motivated.
“We are aware of a video posted on the Internet which appears to show a man being assaulted on Broad Street in Birmingham on Sunday, March 29. It has been suggested the attack was religiously motivated. We would like to reassure people we take such reports extremely seriously and the matter will be fully investigated,” a police spokesperson said.

“We are currently making inquiries to establish exactly what has happened but at this stage, nobody has come forward to tell us they’ve been assaulted.

“I would encourage the man who appears to be the victim in the video to contact us, along with anyone else who was there at the time and can give us any further details.”

On the ‘Daily Sikh Updates’ site, one individual posted: ‘How many against one? No one there had the courage to step in. Shame on all the people that stood and watched.”

Another asked: “Why is someone filming when they could be helping or at least trying to stop it? This is in front of a hotel reception – why didn’t the bouncers stop it?”

The disturbing footage went viral after being posted to the “Daily Sikh Updates” Facebook group, where commenters expressed outrage not only about the violence but the lack of response from the gathered bystanders. “I am absolutely disgusted that not one person had the courage to step in and help this man,” one commenter posted. “Why do people stand and watch and let this happen? They’re as bad as the attackers,” said another.

Muslims Take Note, You Could Learn A Lot From These Sikhs In Worcester

Muslims take note, you could learn a lot from the Sikhs who have turned the pub they own into a Christmas haven, true interfaith relations.

Despite originating in the same sub continent as many of the Muslims in the UK. Their attitude and loyalties couldn’t be more different. The Sikhs make no demands, don’t play the victim, are law-abiding and non violent, expect no special privileges, integrate well into society adapting where need be, hard workers who pay taxes instead of benefit scrounging, uphold the traditions of the country they are in whilst maintaining their own identity, do not wish to convert and take over, are proud to be called British.

WHICH IS WHY NOBODY HAS NEGATIVE VIEWS OF THE SIKH COMMUNITY

Sikh owners transform pub into Christmas haven to spread solidarity message between all faiths

The Sikh owners of a Worcester pub are hoping to spread the message of solidarity throughout the festive period, and have turned it into a Christmas haven.

The Vine Inn, in Ombersley Road, is filled with hanging decorations, colourful lights and sports a huge, beautiful Christmas tree decorated with crystals, baubles and all the other traditional trimmings, to bring people of all faiths together in harmony.
Manager of the pub Shibu Singh Sandhu, 31, who runs it with his brother Jimmy, has even been welcoming people to the pub dressed in traditional Sikh wear.

The brother’s father Tim Sandhu, of Birmingham who owns the pub, said: “We took the decision to do this as we always celebrate Christmas, but this year we wanted to celebrate it in a big way.

“I bought the tree and cut it down, but it took four of us get it in here. My daughter-in laws have done a wonderful job decorating it.

“People have been coming in and taking pictures on their phone and customers seem delighted with it, which is great. It must be one of the biggest trees in Worcester.

“Sikhism teaches us to respect other faiths, and we wanted to show harmony between us and all other religions.

“We live in a Christian country, so it’s important we embrace the culture. There has been a relationship between Christians and Sikhs for a long time now, so we wanted to embrace that even more.

“In these present times, with the terrible things that are happening all around the world, and as it’s Christmas, there’s never been a better time to show solidarity and respect between all faiths.”

Tim Sandhu, a retired university lecturer, bought the pub five months ago and a £120,000 refurbishment project is well underway.

He says once the refurbishment has been completed, it will sport a traditional look and “homely feel”.

UK Street Preacher Charged By Muslim Appeasing CPS With ‘Religious Aggravation’ for Comparing Jesus and Mohammed

Muslim appeasing by British authorities has reached the point of utter stupidity. Apparently comparing the lives of the sinless Jesus Christ with Islam’s very sinful prophet Mohammed is now against the law !!!!

Despite hearing on a daily basis,  countless Muslim related issues including many which are of a sickening nature, on the whole i try not to let the things wind me up to much. This is one of the few occasions that has really got my back up and blood to boiling point.

Christian street preacher Mike Overd has been told by police that the CPS are bringing 3 charges of  ‘Religious Aggravation’ against him for doing just that. The charges are in relation that during one of his street preachings in Taunton, Somerset he made comparisons between the lives of Jesus and Mohammed which somebody took offence to. Why somebody should take offence at the truth is beyond me.  Even if they did take offence at the street preacher stating facts. It still does not make telling the truth a crime no matter if it offended every Muslim in the land.

Islam and its outdated, sexist, racist ,violent sharia law that permits paedophilia, bestiality and women beating offends me . it offends me not just a little bit, it offends me greatly. Whats more all those things that it allows are contrary to the laws of our land. So why is Mr Overd being treated different from the imams in any mosque in the UK ??? Why is he facing charges when his Muslim equivalents don’t ??? In fact why is he charged when every week radical Islamofascist hate preachers give sermons in Mosques up and down the UK promoting hatred with lies??? 

The evangelist preacher insists he did no wrong saying of the incident  “It was a simple comparison and it was factual. Muhammad did marry a 9-year-old girl. I have no hatred of Muslims in me at all and only preach the truth of the gospel “

FACT:  Mohammed married Aisha at 6 years old and had sex with her at 9 years of age.

Narrated ‘Ursa: The Prophet wrote the (marriage contract) with ‘Aisha while she was six years old and consummated his marriage with her while she was nine years old and she remained with him for nine years (i.e. till his death).    Sahih Bukhari 7:62:88 

I can think of much harsher things to say about Muhammed than Mike Overd did regarding his marriage to child  bride Aisha and still be stating truthful facts.  

  • If some crank next week said he was Gods prophet and wanted to marry a child in the infants in primary school would it be allowed or considered acceptable???  No, social services would be round taking the child into care at the first opportunity.
  • Is having sex with a 9-year-old considered paedophilla ?? Yes it most certainly is

 Therefore he was a paedophile pure and simple.!!!! If he was alive today he would either be locked up in prison on a segregation wing for sex offenders or held in a secure mental hospital for the criminally insane like Broadmoor. Like it or not that’s the truth, end of story !!!

Obviously the truth must hurt, for Muslims to run to the police and claim that the preachers comments offends them despite them being exactly as Islamic scriptures say.  If the CPS are making it illegal for somebody to state what it says in the quran, which to Muslims is Gods final words, perfect and to remain unchanged. Then the quran and Islam should also be made illegal.

Street Preacher Charged With ‘Religious Aggravation’ for Comparing Jesus and Muhammad

Street evangelist Mike Overd is being prosecuted in Britain for an alleged religious aggravation public order offense. (Facebook)

Street evangelist Mike Overd, a client of the Christian Legal Centre, is being prosecuted in the United Kingdom for an alleged religious aggravation public order offense.

The charges follow a complaint to police in Taunton, that Overd made a comparison between the perfect life of Jesus and the life of Islam’s prophet, Muhammad.

Police have informed the former paratrooper that the Crown Prosecution Service wishes to bring three charges against him under Section 5 of the Public Order Act.

A Taunton police sergeant recently gave an interview to BBC television and a newspaper locally, urging residents to film the evangelist’s preaching as it was alleged that Overd’s preaching was “causing offense.”

The officer has also asked local traders to film Overd if they believed he was preaching “offensively.”

Overd insists that when he made a comparison between the perfect life of Jesus and the life led by Muhammad, he did not speak in a hateful way.

“It was a simple comparison and it was factual. Muhammad did marry a 9-year-old girl. I have no hatred of Muslims in me at all and only preach the truth of the gospel. Recently a Muslim man came to my defense when I was preaching and a local shopkeeper started to shout at me.

“The Muslim gentleman didn’t take offense because he said he knew I was simply preaching what I believed and agreed there was no hatred in me. I’ve got this incident on video, and I also have video evidence of the incidents which have led to this forthcoming prosecution.”

Overd has been told his case will come to court before the end of this year.

Hindu Temple Set On Fire In Pakistan By Muslims

Followers of the ‘Religion Of Peace’ have destroyed a Hindu temple in the Islamic hell hole of Pakistan. The arson attack was in response to rumours that a Hindu man had ripped pages from the koran. It doesn’t take much for Islamist hotheads to explode with Muslim rage and riot. Especially if it involves destroying non Muslim property.

Intolerant Muslims prove time and time again they are incapable of living side by side other religions. Be it Hindus,  Buddhists, Christians, Sikhs or Jews,

(Reuters) – Hundreds of angry Pakistanis attacked a Hindu temple and set it on fire in southern Pakistan overnight following a rumor that a member of the Hindu community had desecrated the Koran, police and community leaders said on Sunday.

The incident took place just before midnight on Saturday after locals in Larkana district alleged that Sangeet Kumar, 42, had torn out pages of Islam’s holy book and tossed them down on the street from the roof of his home.

“Our Dharamshala (community centre) has been gutted and the temple has been partially damaged. All the statues have been destroyed by the attackers,” Kalpana Devi, chairperson of the local Hindu committee, told Reuters.

Hundreds of students from local Islamic seminaries attacked the temple holding batons, one witness, Javed Shah, said. Police arrived quickly to protect Kumar from the angry crowd.

“They acted smartly and took him out after making him put on a police uniform to save him from the wrath of the crowd,” said Shah.

“It took nearly 20 minutes to break down the doors (of the temple) before they entered the compound and set it on fire. They also set fire to the temple before ransacking it.”

Sindh province, where the attack took place, is home to most of Pakistan’s small Hindu community which numbers about two million among a population of about 180 million.

Pakistan’s rocky relationship with neighboring India, a predominantly Hindu country, has fed tension between the two communities in smaller towns but outright acts of violence are rare.

Police said they were investigating the matter.

“The situation is not satisfactory,” Deputy Inspector General of Larkana, Khadim Rind, told Reuters. “Sanjeet Kumar has been accused of desecrating the holy book by the locals. The accused is in our custody.”

Tensions were high in the region following the incident, with Muslim protestors taking to the streets in several towns and setting fire to shops belonging to Hindus in the city of Usta Mohammad.

The Hindu Panchayat Council, a representative body of Hindu minorities, has appealed on Hindus to keep a low profile while celebrating the ongoing Holi festival of colors.

New Report Says Christians Are Persecuted In 37 Muslim Countries

A new report from charity Open Doors detailing Christian persecution worldwide have revealed that Christian persecution at the hands of Muslims is happening at a very serious level in 37 countries. 

Open Doors works in the world’s most oppressive countries, strengthening Christians to stand strong in the face of persecution and equipping them to shine Christ’s light in these dark places. One of the greatest challenges to Christians living under tyranny and oppression is isolation. Just being Christian can cost you your life.

Muslims love to portray themselves as victims and the persecuted. When in reality they are the persecutors of others. The report focuses only on Christians being persecuted, but you can guarantee the same will be happening to members of other non-Islamic religions at the hands of Islamofascists also. You only have to look at the world news to see that where ever there is trouble between followers of two different religions be they Christian, Jew, Buddhist, Sikh or Hindu it is certain to be with blood thirsty Muslims.

The World Watch List (WWL) is a ranking of 50 countries where persecution of Christians for religious reasons is worst. First of all, the list covers persecution of Christians of all denominations in the entire country. The focus is on persecution for their faith, not persecution for political, economic, social, ethnic or accidental reasons.

Exposed ‘Child Bride’ Imam Who Encouraged Paedophilia Reinstated At Birmingham Mosque

Imam Sajid Zafar Hussain from the Jamatia Islamic Centre was exposed recently on national television as a promoter of illegal child marriages. In undercover video footage the Muslim religious leader had no qualms about breaking the law of the land to marry a 14-year-old girl against her wishes to somebody she had never even met. The welfare and safety of the girl were of no concern to the imam. Neither did he care that children marrying adult men is paedophilia, something that is rife in Islam.

It doesn’t come as any surprise really that he is now back preaching at the mosque. His alleged suspension was more likely to have been an instance of  taqiyya/kitman  (permitted lying / deception in Islam) by the mosques management to purposely deceive the general public to the truth hoping the incident gets forgotten about.

‘hey imam, have a couple of weeks holiday. When the media contact about the TV programme asking questions we can say you have been removed from position and no comment. Let the fuss die down out of the spotlight . Come back, then business as usual’

The mosque management claim that an independent board has looked into ITV’s allegations against  Imam Sajid Zafar Hussain and claim he is innocent of any wrong doing. That claim of innocence is totally debatable. True no actual crime happened because the marriage never took place. But he did conspire to knowingly marry an under-age child to an adult man in the knowledge that it would result in paedophile sexual relations  which is against British law.

Forced child marriages may be allowed under Sharia Law, yet as much as Muslims would like it to be legal here it doesn’t have any authority what so ever. If muslims wish to participate in paedophile marriages and emulate the perfect Muslim Mohammed, then go to Pakistan or Saudi Arabia and do it then please.

Those Islamic quotes from their religious scriptures go some way to explaining why Muslims behave in the way they do. To speak out and say child marriages are wrong, would be saying Islam and Mohammed were also wrong and that will never happen.

Protests as ‘child marriage’ imam back at Birmingham mosque

Sajid Zafar Hussain was suspended from his post at Sparkhill’s Jamatia Islamic Centre after agreeing to arrange the wedding of a 14-year-old girl

Sparkhill imam Sajid Zafar Hussain

An imam caught agreeing to marry off a 14-year-old girl has been welcomed back to his mosque job, despite protests from worshippers.

Sajid Zafar Hussain has spent the past month suspended from his post at the Jamatia Islamic Centre on Woodlands Road, Sparkhill.

He was caught on film agreeing to arrange the wedding ceremony by undercover TV reporters posing as the mother and brother of the schoolgirl.

Mr Hussain was immediately suspended by the mosque but the Mail has discovered he was allowed to return to work last Monday.

Yet the decision has divided worshippers, with one mosque member claiming the ‘unjustifiable’ return had caused bad feeling.

They said: “When the imam entered the mosque to lead prayers a number of members and trustees protested and asked if he would do the decent thing and resign to avoid causing division within the community. The imam refused to comment.

Jamatia Islamic Centre, Sparkhill

“A number of his supporters then objected and began to push members around, there was a disorder which was defused by the trustees and the members walking away from the situation.

“The Management Committee were asked to explain how they concluded the imam’s actions did not amount to gross misconduct. They too refused to comment.”

The ITV Exposure programme visited 56 mosques across the country and asked clerics to perform an Islamic marriage ceremony, known as a nikah.

Mr Hussain and imams at 17 other mosques agreed.

The Mail visited the Jamatia Islamic Centre where its President Noor Hussain and joint treasurer Mohammed Fidah confirmed the imam had been allowed to return following an investigation by an ‘independent committee’.

The President claimed the cleric had agreed in principle to marry off the schoolgirl as a reaction to the ‘emotional state’ of the female reporter posing as her mother, who he described as a ‘desperate woman’.

Asked if they thought Mr Hussain’s offer to marry off the schoolgirl was wrong, Mr Noor Hussain stressed no criminal offence had been committed as no marriage had actually been conducted.

The imam, they said, will not be able to conduct marriage ceremonies at the mosque until further notice, but confirmed the decision could be reversed at any time.

Another senior mosque official, who asked not to be named, said of Sajid Zafar Hussain’s appearance before the committee: ‘‘He said he regretted what happened and apologised and I think that was the reason he came back.”

Asked if he would condemn the imam’s actions, the official said: “We do strongly condemn his actions. She was underage.”

Poll: Should imam Sajid Zafar Hussain have been allowed to return to the Jamatia Islamic Centre?

In a letter to local community leaders, West Midlands Police said officers from its Public Protection Unit had investigated the secret TV recordings at the Jamatia Islamic Centre and at another mosque in the city.

The letter continued: ‘‘Those ceremonies were never conducted and having carefully scrutinised the footage and transcripts of the discussions, detectives from the force’s Public Protection Unit have established that no criminal offences were committed. Detectives have also examined the records at the mosques to establish if other ceremonies have been conducted. Again, no crimes have been identified.

‘‘Officers along with council officials and faith leaders are working closely with the Birmingham mosques mentioned in the programme to remind them of their responsibilities in relation to child protection issues.’’

Yesterday, a spokesman for the force said that two men, aged 27 and 41, were voluntarily interviewed by police in connection with the ITV programme but will face no further action.

The case of Sajid Zafar Hussain was also raised at a city council committee earlier this month.

Meanwhile, Councillor Brigid Jones, Cabinet Member for Children and Family Services, told the Mail: “Forced marriage, and marriage of underage girls, is an appalling crime, and my primary concern is that no young person in our city should live in fear of this.

‘‘I would urge anyone who has concerns to contact our referral and advice officers, or the police as appropriate.”

* Police and their partner agencies have identified 131 forced marriages as having taken place in Birmingham since 2009.

And half of all forced marriages occur on six wards; Bordesley Green, Springfield, Washwood Heath, Sparkbrook, Lozells and East Handsworth and Nechells.

According to an official report, none of the forced marriage victims had been risk assessed and no ‘warning markers’ were present.

Forced marriage protection orders have been in place since 2007, enabling third parties to take civil action to protect victims.

Since April 2010 a total of 17 orders have been issued by Birmingham courts, as a result of police and council intervention. Of the cases taken up by the council, five related to children and four to vulnerable adults.

Muslims Worshippers Desecrate Judaism’s 2nd Most Holy Site.

People go out of their way to  try  show tolerance and a little respect to Muslims by accommodating their wishes. The Muslims respond with intolerance and disrespect in return. To their narrow selfish minds if something isnt Islamic or benefits Muslims then its worthless and fair game for destroying. That outlook not only applies to material things but is also their frame of mind to non Muslims also. Infidel life is worthless why they have no qualms about slaughtering innocents for no reason other than being non Muslims. Imagine the uproar had Jews or any other religion smashed up a Muslim holy site. Their would lots of bloodshed by the Islamic savages in response that’s for sure.

Hevron: Muslim Worshippers Desecrate Jewish Holy Site

Tomb of the Patriarchs is Judaism’s second holiest site.

Jewish worshippers who arrived at the Cave of Patriarchs in Hevron after Muslim prayers on Friday were horrified to find that the site had been vandalised.

The Cave (known as Me’arat Hamakhpela in Hebrew) is usually split between Jewish and Muslim worshippers, but this past Friday it was open exclusively to Muslim worshippers in honour of Ramadan.

But when the Jewish section of the site was reopened, worshippers were horrified to find widespread desecration. Two mezuzot – cases containing Jewish holy scriptures affixed to the doorpost – had been torn off and stolen, and a third was damaged. Muslim worshippers had also thrown mud and garbage around the site, and uprooted parts of the garden outside.

Noam Arnon, a spokesperson for Hevron’s Jewish community, called upon the government to take such acts of desecration “at least as seriously as the burning of carpets in a mosque” – a reference to the string of condemnations and promises of a crackdown by authorities against acts of vandalism on mosques by suspected Jewish extremists.

“After a ‘Price Tag’ attack everyone rushes to condemn – the government, Members of Knesset, even the Chief Rabbis – and the police promise to do ‘everything in their power’ to catch those responsible. The people of Hevron are waiting to see if they will react in the same way to this act of desecration.”

Arnon added that such acts were commonplace, particularly during Muslim holidays.

“I can’t say that we’re surprised, because this kind of thing happens after every Muslim festival. But we are still hoping that justice will be done.”

The Cave of the Patriarchs is considered Judaism’s second holiest site, after the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. It is the burial place of the Jewish patriarchs – Abraham, Isaac and Jacob – as well as three of the four matriarchs – Sarah, Rebekah and Leah (the fourth, Rachel, is buried in Bethlehem).

Middle England must listen to Tommy Robinson (Reblog)

This post is a piece on another blog,written by a lawyer that i read and thought i would share. Very good read

Reblog from : The Blog of The Re-Enlightenment

Middle England must listen to Tommy Robinson

Posted on July 9, 2013

Robinson2Wake up and smell the jihad, kuffar.

I wrote a post last week called “Time to be honest about the English Defence League”, in which I expressed some frank views about the EDL and its leader Tommy Robinson, and since then I’ve been regretting it. Not because I was too honest but because I wasn’t honest enough.

I’ve spent quite a bit of time thinking about everything more carefully and I’ve watched a number of clips of Robinson on YouTube. In short I’ve been completely blown away by his bravery, his commitment, his intelligence and his integrity. I really think it’s about time everyone started taking him seriously for what he is, which is a political activist of the highest calibre.

There are dozens of things on the internet but these are the ones I watched. I really hope you commit some of your time to watching them (the second one is audio only). If you don’t then I can’t see how you can dismiss Robinson so lightly.

Robinson is completely committed to defeating Islamism. We all know he has a dodgy past but that’s nothing unique amongst the general population and it’s certainly nothing unique amongst political activists. His past doesn’t disqualify him from speaking out against Islamism and it doesn’t make his opinions any less valid.

We forget that taking part in an institutional system of rules-based theft is no disqualification to sitting in either of our legislative chambers, or that being violent in a Houses of Parliament bar (twice) merely makes an elected public official an eccentric character, or that committing criminal damage as an undergraduate at Oxford University provided you’re wearing a nice suit and you’ve had the finest education money can buy, and smoking cannabis at Eton College, is no disqualification to becoming prime minister of the United Kingdom. Yet criminal convictions are an automatic bar to disapproving of ruthless, totalitarian ideologies.

Robinson’s real crimes are not actual crimes, though. I can’t stand class-based victim narratives but even I have to conclude Robinson has committed the ultimate crime of being a working class white lad and expecting to have an opinion on Islamism, which will be the defining issue of the century people reading this blog post will die in. I dismissed Robinson because of his background and because of the EDL’s image. I should have known better than to be such a snob.

Do we not believe people can change? We welcome with open arms reformed Muslim extremists like the brilliant Maajid Nawaz of the Quilliam Foundation precisely because we believe people can change, but we refuse to let Robinson escape his past – and Robinson can hardly be called a former “extremist” anyway.

At this point you might expect the self-appointed champion of the working classes Owen Jones to chime in with his Chavs: The Demonization of the Working Class thesis, but don’t hold your breath. That’s because you can’t possibly apply that narrative to a white working class lad from Luton who wants to talk about Islamism. Robinson has repaid his debts to society and as far as I can see he’s now amassing a gigantic credit account.

In case you’re wondering whether Luton is significant or insignificant, it’s significant: it’s where the four 7/7 bombers started their rail journey into London. Oh you do remember 7/7, don’t you? I do because I got the Tube to work that day. I was sitting at my desk, probably surfing the internet or pretending to look busy when I heard a massive bang. That bang was the sound of my fellow Londoners being murdered in Russell Square.

Here’s something you might not know about Robinson: because of the numerous death threats against him and his family he was offered a new identity and a new location by the state. He refused. If that doesn’t represent moral and physical courage of the highest possible order then someone can tell me what does. He refuses to leave his home town through intimidation.

The death threats aren’t a figment of his imagination: he has been given a number of“Osman warnings”, which are warnings of a death threat or high risk of murder that are issued by the police. And a few weeks ago six jihadis were sentenced to over 100 years in total for plotting to bomb an EDL rally.

In his videos I’ve seen in Robinson a greater understanding and commitment to our fundamental civil liberties than I’ve detected amongst 99% of the lawyers I’ve worked with in my career. Robinson is warning everyone of the storm that’s already here and yet people refuse to listen to him through a combination of snobbery and a fear of being associated with this country’s Great Unwashed Underclass.

Yes, the EDL has an image problem and so does Robinson. So what? Are we hoping Islamism will be defeated by a perfectly manicured group of PPE students with Double Firsts from Oxford whose highest calling in life is to become a faceless Special Advisor in the Ministry of Lies?

There isn’t a huge field of candidates willing to speak out against the backward ideology that is Islamism because the consequences are so severe. We’re not just talking about physical danger from Islamists; we’re also talking about the perpetual slurs from their apologists and also the instinctive assumption from everyone else that anyone who’s white (and especially working class) can’t possibly be approaching this from anything other than a racist and hateful angle. You really can’t be too picky when looking for people to defeat Islamism. You pretty much have to take who you get. We’re lucky to have anyone, let alone someone as good as Robinson.

I’m sure there are thugs in the EDL and I know Robinson does too. But I have much more confidence in Robinson’s ability and willingness to root out his thugs and condemn their actions unequivocally than I do in Muslim leaders to do the same with theirs – and with people whose appetite and willingness to commit violence far exceeds that of EDL supporters.

One of Robinson’s arguments, which I agree with entirely, is that Muslims themselves aren’t doing enough. This is indisputably true. Condemnation of violence is more often than not followed by the word “but”. It’s always someone else’s fault, always. When Muslims don’t do enough or do anything I get very nervous.

Muslims must do more. They must do a hell of a lot more. We’ve become so accustomed to them not doing enough that we seem to have just accepted it. A few weeks ago, for example, I was speaking to a female Muslim colleague who is very liberal and secular. In fact she’s an Ismaili Muslim, a sect that has traditionally been given a very rough time from within Islam (precisely because they’re generally liberal and secular).

We were talking about France’s ban on the veil and she told me she was “secretly very pleased”.

Excuse me? Why secretly? Why can’t she say these things openly? She makes it ten times harder for us – not to mention her poor Muslim sisters who are forced to wear this cloak – to speak out about the veil or Islamism when she chooses to remain silent and just greedily enjoy the rights that western liberal democracy has given her on a plate. Unbelievable.

Last week a Muslim TV channel was fined £85,000 by the media regulator Ofcom for allowing its airwaves to be used by a hate preacher to incite the murder of those who insult the Prophet Mohammed. As yet there’s no word of criminal charges against the individual preacher. Can you imagine the reaction if Robinson were ever to suggest that so much as one Muslim should have so much as one of their hairs repositioned? Robinson can be forgiven for referring to a “two-tier” policing system because he’s absolutely correct. Robinson was warned by the police not to retweet death threats against him on the basis it was causing distress to people.

In one of his videos Robinson said he was hoping Middle England would follow. Well I’m a privately educated, second generation immigrant, middle class lawyer who lives in a big house with a small mortgage. If I’m not Middle England then Anjem Choudary is a moderate. I don’t agree with everything Robinson says but his message has got through to me. Has it got through to you? If it hasn’t then why? Is it because you think Robinson is a racist? On what basis? Is it because you don’t trust white working class lads? Or is it because you simply haven’t bothered listening to a word he’s been saying because you’ve already been told a hundred times how terrible he is? It’s time to think for yourself for a change.

People need to grow up and they need to listen to Robinson. Just watch some of those links. Robinson is living with death threats. The least you can do is watch a few YouTube clips in safety.

To many people Robinson is evil personified whereas the likes of Anjem Choudary have almost become harmless pantomime villains (boo, hiss, he’s behind you, etc). People are more scared of Robinson and the EDL than they are of Choudary and Islamism. This isabsurd. One of these men is committed to non-violence and preserving our fundamental civil liberties and the other is committed to toppling democracy and replacing it with Sharia. Go figure.

If you still feel uncomfortable supporting the EDL or Tommy Robinson then how about at least resisting the impulse to dismiss them as far-right racist thugs? At least just stay silent. Don’t add to Robinson’s problems because he has enough already. I’m just an anonymous keyboard warrior sitting behind an old, shitty laptop which has a power problem but at least I’m doing something. What are you doing? Are you making things better, are you leaving them the same or are you making things even worse by demonizing Robinson for no real reason other than because everyone around you is doing the same?

It’s so easy to be a snob. I know because I am one. The EDL are in the main a bunch of white working class lads who like football. It’s perfectly fair to say grammar and spelling are not their strong suits. These are crimes of the century, obviously, and yet another reason why they’re not allowed a view on Islamism.

***

As a secularist I’m not particularly wild on the EDL’s occasional references to Christianity, or the Christian imagery, but then again I’m not particularly bothered about it either. I have no reason to believe they want to replace one form of violent theocracy with another. They basically just want Islamism to be defeated, the law to be applied equally to everyone, and our civil liberties and way of life to be preserved, and those are all fine objectives that any secularist should be able to embrace.

I don’t expect the EDL to get too excited about issues like bishops in the House of Lords because that’s not why the EDL exists. If I want the latest on that debate I can check out the websites of the National Secular Society or the Christian think tank Ekklesia. And although I want Christianity to lose its power and privileges I don’t want that to happen violently or through fear, and I certainly don’t want our state religion to be replaced with one that’s a thousand times as hideous.

Robinson might not always emphasise the distinction between Islam and Islamism but that’s not particularly important.  The case against Islamism doesn’t succeed or fail if you don’t use those terms correctly each and every time.

In fact the distinction between Islam and Islamism is becoming increasingly meaningless anyway (and for an excellent discussion of the “blurry line between Islam and Islamism”see Rod Liddle in The Spectator here). In practice it’s almost impossible to pinpoint where Islam ends and Islamism begins. The crucial point is that people have rights butideologies don’t. Ideologies aren’t capable of having rights.

The scale of the task Robinson has taken on was well demonstrated in the BBC3 link above. It was basically a drowning Robinson versus a whole TV studio audience and panel. He kept asking people why they were calling him a racist and a bigot and no-one could provide a convincing answer. He explained that he and his family had received numerous death threats, to which the former Apprentice contestant Saira Khan replied,“well stop being a racist and a bigot then!” Cue delirious laughter and applause from smug metropolitan wankers who probably think Freedom is a brand of sanitary towels or the latest boy band.

The reaction to Khan’s response is deeply troubling on a number of levels. Firstly, no-one could explain to Robinson why he was a racist or a bigot in the first place; they just assumed he was. Secondly, since when has being a racist or a bigot justified a death sentence in the United Kingdom anyway, morally or legally? And thirdly, notice the not-so-subtle shift of culpability from perpetrator to victim here. This, ladies and gentleman, is Sharia and Islamism in one easy nutshell. Don’t want death threats? Well don’t criticise Islam then. Don’t want to get raped? Well cover up then. Don’t want to be executed for apostasy? Well don’t leave Islam then.

It’s simple really. As long as you do absolutely everything Islam demands and you never criticise it then you’ll be…well you won’t be safe but you will buy yourself some time while Islamists concentrate on more troublesome opponents. If you’re lucky you might just buy yourself enough time for a nice little life. As for your kids, who knows. Who cares. That’s their problem. Robinson readily admits he’s terrified about what Islamism has in store for his children. Aren’t you?

The second link above is a radio clash between Robinson and the renowned apologist for Islamism, Respect Party MP George Galloway. Galloway persisted in asking Robinson why he has used different names. It’s because of death threats. Is that a good enough reason for you, George?

Robinson explained how he had once gone to a Respect Party meeting with a female companion only to discover there was gender segregation, but Galloway wasn’t too concerned about that. Instead he picked up Robinson on his use of the word “bird” to describe a female. Yes, this is George Galloway, apologist for Islamism, an ideology that barely gives women animal rights let alone human ones, and who has some pretty sketchy views on rape to boot, in his new role as Fearless Conqueror of Misogyny.

Galloway was also interested in how Robinson had become leader of the EDL (which is a non-membership organisation) and he questioned Robinson’s commitment to democracy on the basis there wasn’t an election to appoint him. So in order to speak out against Islamism, an ideology which is rotten to its very core and which is fundamentally anti-democratic, you apparently now need to win an election.

Just as the Middle East has demonstrated it might finally be separating Islam and power(and check out this heart-warming link featuring a 12-year old Egyptian kid), here we are embracing Islamism in the United Kingdom. We’re self-censoring out of “respect”. And we’re selling out brave individuals like Robinson on a truly epic scale. This is shameful.

What have we become? I’ll tell you. We’ve become consumers who have been binge-eating freedom to the point where we’ve become sick. We’ve forgotten that our freedoms are valuable. We’ve forgotten that they’ve been incredibly difficult to obtain and that the currency for obtaining them was unquantifiable amounts of human blood and guts. We haven’t got a clue how difficult it is to get freedoms back once they’re gone. And along comes a working class white lad from Luton who isn’t prepared to let these freedoms die quietly and who understands the importance of freedom of speech, the right to protest and freedom of association. Someone for whom these freedoms are not obscure academic concepts but real, valuable things. Someone who is willing to take a stand against religious brutality whatever the cost to him may be. And yet somehow hardly anyone is willing to accept that defending and exercising those sacred freedoms in the face of violence and intimidation is a worthwhile use of an Englishman’s time. There is no more worthwhile use of an Englishman’s time than this.

And at the same time, our politicians sob pathetically into the bottom of their whisky tumblers and complain how “young people just aren’t interested in politics these days”. Believe me, they are. They’re just not interested in politicians these days. If taking a stand against violent theocracy and exercising priceless civil liberties in the face of danger isn’t demonstrating an interest in politics then nothing is. Politicians have demonstrated zero commitment to dealing with or even acknowledging the problem of Islamism. Now we have the EDL. They’re far from perfect but they’re far better than nothing. As Robinson says, he doesn’t want to be leader of the EDL. Who would want death threats? I don’t want there to be a need for the EDL. But there is.

***

I imagine some people have become involved with the EDL for the wrong reasons, maybe just wanting a ruck every now and then. It’s possible that some people who have become involved for the wrong reasons are now involved for the right reasons because they’ve been educated along the way by Robinson. Remember, people can change. People can learn. People can educate themselves on the hoof. Yes, this also applies to white working class lads. People awaken politically in all sorts of ways, for all sorts of reasons, and the path is not always straightforward or sanitised. Not everyone’s political awakening takes place in an Eton College dorm room or a Political Science lecture at the London School of Economics.

People dismiss the EDL and Robinson because of their image and because of their own snobbery. I admit the image is uncomfortably close to skinhead gangs and “Paki-bashing”. Not one decent person in the United Kingdom wants a return to nightmare days of fear, segregation and violence. But fear, segregation and violence is exactly what Islamism has already delivered by the bucketload.

The problem of image is just a problem of image, it is not one of substance. Wearing overpriced Stone Island clobber and going to football matches are not crimes in the United Kingdom, yet.

We can no longer dismiss the many Hindu, Sikh, Jewish, black and LGBT supporters of the EDL as mere political PR stunts designed to deflect criticism. Are all those people racist thugs? Are all those people nothing but easily led fools who have been cynically manipulated by the Bond villain Robinson? Do you really think that or do you just reallywant to think that?

The stakes in the battle against Islamism are incredibly high. They are unimaginably high. Every single freedom which is a pre-condition for your way of life and which you take for granted on a daily basis is currently under sustained attack from Islamism. But that’s fine, let’s just wait until someone with a better image comes along, shall we? There’s no hurry. After all, what’s the big deal with suicide bombers on the London Underground, newspapers self-censoring cartoons of prophets through fear of violence, widespread female genital mutilation, women and young girls being covered up so they don’t getblamed for being raped, women being treated like dogs in Sharia councilsMuslim sex gangs considering non-Muslims “the other”, and a British soldier with the name Lee Rigby having his head cut off in a London street in the middle of the day while his attacker shouts “Allahu Akbar”, allegedly.

Phew.

Tommy, I hope you’re reading this. I’ll direct the remainder of this post to you. I have enormous respect for what you’re doing. I beg of you to remain as committed to non-violence and opposing racism as you are to defeating Islamism.

I imagine there are two types of people who support the EDL: decent people who aren’t racist or violent, and others. It’s vital you root out the bad apples and disassociate yourself from them unequivocally, or successfully educate them, extremely quickly.

You were born to do this. You have a gift for communication. I saw you talking about Shia/Sunni bloodshed on Twitter the other day and someone asked you what that was, and you said, “basically Luton v Watford”. That’s the kind of communication skills money just can’t buy. (Did I sound like a patronising middle class wanker just then? That’s probably because I’m a patronising middle class wanker. But I imagine it makes a nice change from the death threats.)

From what I can see you get grief from pretty much everyone. From Islamists, from their hard-left apologists like Unite Against Fascism, from their soft-left “liberal” champagne socialist apologists, from Middle England, from other people who want to defeat Islamism but who won’t touch you because you’re too hot to handle, and even from EDL supporters when demos don’t go according to plan and they ask you for their money back! Wankers! As you said in one of your videos, after demos when other people go back to their normal lives you don’t because your life is now a demo. That sent a shiver down my spine.

Tommy, to quote the apologist George GallowayI salute your courage, your strength, your indefatigability. It’s unfortunate this country needs the EDL but it does.

And the EDL needs you.

Your friend in Middle England.

Video: George Galloway Calls Westerners ‘Kuffar’ Proves He Is A Muslim

Anti British traitor MP George Galloway proves he is a Muslim by referring to westerners as the ‘Kuffar’ on his Press TV show . The Iranian owned channel is used as a Muslim propaganda outlet to attack the west and push the Muslim agenda. Any doubts as to if he is a Muslim convert must surely be answered now with his reference that only a Muslim would make.
