The Muslim officers believe the Government is wrong to blame Islam as the main driver of terrorist activity.
Research by “those convicted of terrorism acts shows Islam was not, and is not, a real driver but all our strategy seem to focus on is this un-evidenced view of Islam being the driver,” they said.
The website of the NAMP links to the Khomeinist front organisation, the so-called ‘Islamic Human Rights Commission’. Twice.
A flavour of the nature of the IHRC can be found here.
As a measure of the closeness of the IHRC to the Islamic Republic of Iran, recall that it took them a full month to say anything at all about the treatment of the (Muslim) Iranian democracy protestors. When it did, it took particular care to claim that 8 Basejis had been killed, and concluded:
IHRC acknowledges that the protests were mostly peaceful but also contained violent fringe elements including organised groups committed to violence and instability in the region.
IHRC is concerned with the allegation of external forces in the promotion of violence and feel that such involvement is counter-productive and damaging to civil society in Iran.
The links between the NAMP and the IHRC should be broken, today.
Not only do the NAMP link to the IHRC – they encourage people to report offences to the Islamic Republic of Iran front organisation:
If you are reporting any criminal actions directly experienced or second hand. Please consider reporting all such incidents to your local police so that they may be act upon your complaint. However if you want to exercise your right of protest, please ensure it is peaceful, lawful and proportionate.
We also suggest you report any such actions to the Islamic Human Rights Commission.
habibi adds: to see how just how mad, stupid and wrong the NAMP’s links with the IHRC are, consider these words about the police from the IHRC. The police have turned to Israel for insight on dealing with suicide bombers. They have questioned “brother” Moazzam Begg. One officer even dared to be rude about Hitler fan Yusuf al Qaradawi. Unforgivable!
At the end of four years [of meetings with the Met Police] when we finally cut our ties, I came out thinking of the police as insincere (to put it politely), hypocritical, having double standards.
They sent people to Israel, initially they denied that they had sent officers to Israel to find out how to deal with suicide bombers, when I asked them would you have done the same thing and sent, after the Brixton riots, people to South Africa under the apartheid regime – would you have sent people there to find out how to deal with black people? They didn’t have an answer to that.
When brother Moazzam Begg was coming back we asked them the question brother Moazzam Begg and the others should be released on just compassionate grounds if nothing else.. they said oh no they have to be questioned, we said there is president for this – Saudi nurses were held back, you didn’t question them you reunited them with their families on compassionate grounds, at least for humanity, for basic human rights just let them go to their families first. We said to them you are under the influence of the politicians from America and they no we’re not how dare you question our professionalism. And we find out within the last nine months that actually they were, they had to do it, they were told by their masters in America that they had to do it, and that they had lied to us!
I asked the question do you have a shoot to kill policy when they sent people over to Israel, they said no, initially they denied [sending people to Israel] and then they said they didn’t have a shoot to kill policy over a number of years and then it was finally, tragically, proven that they did have.
When Shaikh Qardawi was insulted by John Stevens – he was sent a letter, I walked out of the meeting saying how dare you insult someone who is senior within the Muslim world and calling him a terrorist with out actually trying him in any way, shape or form.
Why, the police even had the cheek to go after Abu Hamza. This was IHRC chairman Massoud Shadjareh’s reaction to Hamza’s conviction for incitement to racial hatred and murder:
This is creating an environment that can only further alienate the Muslim community
Here’s the kind of “We are all Hezbollah” crowd you will find at the IHRC’s “Al Quds Day” annual march for Israel haters in London:
Policemen recommending the IHRC is an excellent measure of just how amazingly poor the UK’s response to extremism can be.
The submission to Parliament is here.
You will find it quite remarkable.
