Al Quds Day in London – Hatred Takes Wing

A Call For Annihilation
Here is one of the ugly scenes from Al Quds (Jerusalem) Day, the Khomeinist hatred march held on June 10 in London. Flanked by Hezbollah flags and an image of Ayatollah Khomeini, Mohammed Saeed Bahmanpour takes the stage and calls for the annihilation of Israel.

Praise to God who eradicates the tyrants, praise [...]

Is this really the only alternative to Corbynism?

Wealthy Britons remain among the world’s most comfortable people, enjoying lavish homes, private medical care, top-notch schools and restaurants run by chefs from Paris and Tokyo. The poor, the elderly, the disabled and the jobless are increasingly prone to Kafka-esque tangles with the bureaucracy to keep public support.

The Khomeinist IHRC versus Freedom of Speech

If you’re a Khomeinist, freedom of speech is easy. You should have it. People you dislike should not.
This week, the self-styled Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC) has provided yet another illustration of this core principle.
Here’s the background. Stung by Sadiq Khan’s call to ban its Al Quds Day hatred march in London [...]

Thought Experiments with Ismail Menk

Imagine a prominent and deeply conservative foreign Christian preacher was on his way to the UK to address his followers. He is on record saying this:
I was on a flight one day. I asked the bearded man seated next to me if he was a Muslim. He said yes, he was. I said “look, [...]

It takes a Nationalist to love a Fascist

Putin’s Lord Haw Haws – why does the UK continue to tolerate Russian propagandists and useful idiots? – this article begins.
I can’t see how a liberal democracy can do anything but “tolerate” them.
Still, it is marked how the arch nationalists, Farage and Salmond, are admirers of Putin and appear on Russia Today.  Meanwhile Nicola Sturgeon [...]

Go to Jail (Not)

Dilemma
6 years in Ecuador embassy to avoid arrest
6 months in Wandsworth Prison for skipping bail
Which would you choose?
Wandsworth Prison – institutional food, dodgy fellow prisoners, mail bags to sew, no view
6 years in Ecuador embassy – unlimited internet, balcony, chance to influence American elections, visits from that Bay Watch chick and George Galloway….
Wandsworth here we [...]

Just Yorkshire on Prevent – Just Rubbish

Are the government’s “Prevent” anti-extremist policies well-crafted and working for the country? One way to find out is to look at the arguments of Prevent critics. If they are laughably poor, we are on the right track. Just look for dubious methodology, exaggerations, distortions, and outright lies.
Well, today the charity “Just Yorkshire” [...]

MEND and “Subliminal Islamophobia”

Stirring up anger and division is a core mission for an Islamist agitation outfit. Even if you have to make things up. Is the story absurd? Yes, so let’s run with it!
The MEND crew are adept in this trade. Have a look at this tweet from MEND activist Siema Iqbal. [...]

Oldham Council Being “Positive”

“This preacher is a strong supporter of Thomas Mair, the man who murdered Jo Cox MP. But he doesn’t support Anders Breivik. And he’s speaking at a peace conference in town. That’s very positive, isn’t it? Let’s join him on the stage!”
This would be an absurd move by any local council. [...]
