if you listen to this clip with the always excellent Nigel Farage of UKIP debating the Burqa with “Lord Haw Haw” himself George Galloway the thought occurred to me… Galloway as ever – like useful idiots such as Lauren Booth – will disingenuously use the freedom argument and say the wearing of the full Burqa is expression of freedom so surely this is what British values is all about. Well no,  its more or less the same as Holocaust deniers claiming the interest in downgrading the horrors of the Holocaust to just a few thousand in the name of freedom of speech and expression.

One of the best arguments against came ironically enough on Russia Today News channel on the hideous Peter Lavelle show Crossfire. Just watch the French woman completely destroy the English woman claiming and moaning about her human rights being eroded by the possibility of a Europe wide  ban.

I thought I would speak about something closer to home namely Luftur Rahman, our East End Mayor of Tower Hamlets , the borough that will host the London Olympics. He is a paid up member of Galloway’s fascist respect party and unfortunately for everyone living here was voted with little more than 20percent of the vote, which speaks volumes about the public outrage inside trendy Tower Hamlets home of the hipster scene, Bricklane, Spitalfiends market etc etc..

Last week  he took part in 75th anniversary of the Cable Street Marches and hasn’t stopped having his photo or  articles  published by  a gullible press who see him as something of a Anti-Fascist hero. his twitter feed is full of it. safe ground methinks..

This recent clip on Bengali TV,

yes its the same station who helped him win local support by smearing opponents with allegations of wife beating , as he  cultivates his new pubic persona  standing up like the Jews against Mosely and the blackshirts. The only issue here he’s also a fascist and a very nasty one.

Andrew Gilligan one of the few brave journalists whom has taken up the challenge and the status quo writes endlessly to expose him and his cronies.

The naive and foolish Guardian have given this hypocritical man a platform to blur fact and fiction.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2011/oct/02/far-right-tower-hamlets-racism

What will it take before the Guardian Newspaper stops promoting this vile create, sadly in the run-up to the Olympics we shall all suffer more pubic displays of fakery.

As per- usual it takes a Muslim voice to point out the deafening silence from the Left and Islamic community here and in Europe,  note Ayaan Hirst Ali and Salman Rushdie as prime examples..Medi Islam’s short riposte against the Iranian decision to execute Youcef Nadarkhani in Iran, for simply being a Christian, is highlighted not only for its sheer brutality but its decision lacking of any Islamic authority. http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2011/sep/30/this-brutality-is-not-islam

Medi talks about the left’s silence as

“Pleas for clemency from the archbishop of Canterbury, the UK’s foreign secretary and Amnesty International, among others, have fallen on deaf ears in Tehran. Meanwhile the silence from the world’s Muslims – especially the UK’s usually voluble Muslim organisations and self-appointed “community leaders” – has been shameful. The irony is that I have yet to come across an ordinary Muslim who agrees that a fellow believer who loses, changes or abandons his or her faith should be hanged. Yet frustratingly few Muslims are willing to speak out against such medieval barbarism. We mumble excuses, avert our eyes.”

and on Islamic justice

“There is a misguided assumption among many Muslims that such an abhorrent punishment is divinely mandated. It isn’t. Classical Muslim jurists wrongly conflated apostasy with treason. The historical fact is that the prophet Muhammad never had anyone executed for apostasy alone. In one well-documented case, when a Bedouin man disowned his decision to convert to Islam and left the city of Medina, the prophet took no action against him, remarking only that, “Medina is like a pair of bellows: it expels its impurities and brightens and clears its good”.

Where are the vigils, the outrage and marches in support of this poor man?

IT’S difficult to assess these clips without thinking of Kristallnacht, a horrific pogrom full of violence and noted for over 7500 Jewish businesses being smashed to pieces… Watching this resonated only in the sense of the chaotic scenes after when Police were called in. The activist who seemed to be something out of MPAC’s brainwashed living dead screamed bloody murder outside naming and shaming the Muslim shopkeeper for selling Israeli dates. Unfortunately a combination of peer pressure and  lack of protection by the Police physically and morally, and definitively detained her and not being sucked in by her so-called Muslim calling to arms speech outside. but here lies the problem again, the old chestnut of  inadequate policing…. The policeman should have protected the rights of the shopkeeper to sell whatever he wants and challenge this woman in public and make an example of her. But no and like so many policeman instructed nowadays community cohesion comes first. This made painful viewing as it was soo obvious so by his weedy attitude to her.  He basically didn’t have the necessary skills to verbally challenge her and she knew this as her screams and people around her grew every second.

The fact the shopkeeper for so long  kept pointing out if you want to live in a Muslim country with ‘Haraam’ laws go live in one then was comforting for a while, his lack of expertise and inexperience in matters of moral conviction sadly ran out of stream. I suspect he’s never been confronted about this before  and the poor man probably never-ever been accused of being a proper Muslim. The part two video shows this side and I’ m afraid the Kristallnacht-esque shrieking from the woman was far too much and logic fell out of the window. The updated part two video is a strong indication of how Asian-Muslims here who do want to seek integration in a country they call home are slowly being blackmailed& harassed into a growing religiosity which seeks to take away any strain of free thinking or logic they may have. The channel promoting the video is called “freedom Films” well it isn’t , more like Fascist films.

There is no doubt British Muslims are being targeted more and more by the likes of  MPACUK  through direct action and emotional blackmail,  will this equate into violence as seen in the 1930s on actual Jewish businesses is to be seen..? For the most part the likes of MPACUK pick  and choose  their targets carefully and not to be on the wrong side of the  law. Tescos, Salisbury, have all been targets in the past from Muslim direct action groups

They also know the bigger shops are softer targets because they don’t like the publicity  and won’t press charges.  it’s the smaller one’s which are more interestng like this in green lanes because it shows their real hand and mindset and sofar incidents like  this are rarely caught on camera, the fact it is suggests it may get dirty. Thankfully gor the moment they do not dare attack Jewish shops who  sell Israeli goods.  This will be seen as racist  provocation by the general public and too much though at some point activists from this school of thought will do something stupid i m afraid, it is the most logical step for the deranged and obsessive political types.`

People like this guy who runs MPAC,

 

…wear suits and seems respectable but what they want is a Muslim population that doesn’t think for themselves and by telling them we are respecting your freedoms to protest but denying you from freedom of thought is Fascistic of the worse possible degree..

 

THEY, MPACUK, are the equivalent of professional legal-Jihadists in Europe they continually want to strike fear in the hearts of Muslims telling them to be good Muslims or else. I also found out they like to champion freedoms for non-Muslims in the UK. Take this recent example of someone who challenged Community CCTV. The likes of MPACUK seek legitimacy through engagement with non-Muslims interested in freedoms as an ideal but as  i pointed out its a tactic as old as time itself, Fascism needs to have people actually believing it to good for you for it to work.

In the end it needs the police to challenge these types on the streets and not cower into submission so easily. As much as this video will be circulated around the confines of MPACUK’s and sent off to instructor types, it should also be set directly to Scotland Yard.. But alas this is England and Jew baiting is alive and well. One wonders would Turkish shopkeepers be so easily converted and talked to in this manner ? well I very much doubt it as for all the differences in opinion regarding Israel and Turkish relations they are far too sure of their identity and know where to draw the line between. I also believe MPACUK would nt have the guts to try..

In fact I believe MPACUK like true cowards they are would not dare to….

At the all too comfortable Gallery Cafe part of the St. Margaret House Settlements  http://stmargaretshouse.org.uk/gallery-cafe/gallery-cafe a smug world view has often been one its more offensive charms. This complex  houses so many charities and groups people  here staff at the cafe I ve asked don’t even know what’s going on! The cafe itself everything from vegan ism to fair trade and can be very confusing to decipher what it is they really believe in, and typical of its time I reckon. I much preferred it when nice Buddhists used to run the show and serve humble homemade food for the local community , nowadays people who came are those who take part in their world views and I myself refuse to talk any politics inside. The sight of self importance Hipsters and 50somethings who indulge in a knowing-ness all believing their world view is the norm doesn’t make this Jewhican a happy Mensch. More recently the Gallery think of itself as a showcase hub for all  English revival folk music evenings something the hipster ish  staff over eulogizes like a preacher in room full of newly baptized virgins. 

Over the last few weeks I noticed an increase in literature about the impending EDL march in the East End. http://englishdefenceleague.org/events/event/tower-hamlets-demonstration/ There’s simply piles and piles of  leaflets and newspapers everywhere ( printed mostly by Hope Not Hate) warning its flock to attend and protest them. With grabbing headlines like “We’ve stopped them before”http://www.hopenothate.org.uk/tower-hamlets/  and “Tower Hamlets Stands Strong Against Extremism” This is clearly a calling and coming together almost in religious-like stature. I can tell one tright now people here in the Eastend are wetting themselves with excitement as this is the first time  they can finally practice what they can preach, knowing that not much will really happen as the police will make sure the EDL be policed at a man per marcher which is the norm for the EDL policing.

UNWATCH’s Hillel Neuer often says “human rights has become the new religion of the left” and when a religion becomes a religion too quickly like those who will oppose the EDL, are they ever going to allow themselves to believe fascism also comes from the very people who will join and oppose the EDL.  Elton John once said during a Tel Aviv performance “I will not cherry pick my politics” in response to those who wanted him to boycott Israel, he clearly knew the dangers of aligning with a popular cause without clear processes.

With all this literature around me I left the Gallery Cafe to  the sound of easy listening light  and a crowd of 40-50 something creating fairtrade cupcakes and real ale who will never put two and two together and ask the big question about this whole affair? Why has there never EVER been a concerted effort to stop radical Islamic groups marching or holding hate-fest events in the Eastend since 9/11?

It depresses me the countless times I ve sat and watch the likes the Islam4uk or IslamicForumEurope hold racist views about Jews, Israelis, Gays and the unbelievers… “bomb bomb Tel Av” they chanted in the middle of BrickLane in 2006 I particular remember and will never forgot.

In the meantime we’ll keep moving the deckchairs on the Titanic to the sound of Wagner’s Valkyries

Nick Cohen reports in the Jewish Chronicle

‘In my last column I wrote that Labour is taking a huge risk in running the tired and seedy figure of Ken Livingstone as its candidate in next year’s London mayoral elections. No sooner had I filed the copy than a delegation of Iranian leftists came to see me. They had been sickened by the sight of Livingstone taking the money of Press TV, the propaganda station of the Iranian government that has murdered thousands of their comrades, and tortured and raped tens of thousands more. The Iranians intend to picket him at every stage of the way in the campaign and force the British media to ask two questions which few apart from Martin Bright, Andrew Gilligan and your humble correspondent have raised before.’ So it takes Iranian citizens of Britain to remind the political classes and the Police how we should treat backers of the Iranian thug-eoracy.

Will his PressTV days finally catch up with him?

A great cross post by Azarmehr who has cleverly picked apart Press TV and their choice of guest. Please read.

http://azarmehr.blogspot.com/2011/07/islamic-republic-and-peter-rushton.html

Those who still believe Press TV is some kind of antidote to the BNP and EDL as a trusted Channel for the latest news about Islamaphobia around the world are wrong. Press Tv simply allow anyone from both the extreme left and right wing to carry on their sh%t stirring propaganda directive from Tehran HQ.  Azarmehr debunks Peter Rushton mentioned in his blog , who is being used in a capacity of  ”historian” commenting on Eygpt and then finally analyzing the story by distorting  Israel and Egypt relations pre and post Mubarak. It’s classic way by Press TV to allow themselves poetic license to espouse anti-Israeli sentiments. Just look at any top of the hour news rundown and count the Israeli stories. For anyone new to Earth watching just Press TV it would give the impression that Israel is the most important country ever to existed and the worst.

So those of you who still believe in muslamic ray guns please empty them  now and don’t get too excited that Press TV are kinda cool because they sometimes do investigative pieces of the EDL and BNP. They aren’t. They’re Nazi lovers.

Here’s a satirical video done in a typical songify way using Press TV’s news item about the EDL which worryingly helps legitimise the journalism delivered by (O)Press TV ..

In the actual report they obviously try to mock them. But Azarmehr demonstrates Press TV will actually talk and give a stage to BNP types in an attempt to justify and validate pure and simple anti-Israeli agendas.

Pure hypocrisy. Now where’s that OfComs number again??
