Rystede og chokerede, men fortsætter kursen

Alle politikere er rystede over endnu et møde med gentagelsen, dekade efter dekade - intet ændrer sig andet en frekvensen stiger støt og intensiteten følger snart efter. Ingen kan stoppe en gal mand, siger vores politi, livet går videre, siger vores Statsminister. På hvilke betingelser er underordnet blot vores tilgang er zen. Det er livet i en storby, siger Londons muslimske borgmester, det må man vænne sig til. Men sandheden er at det er livet med en stor muslimsk befolkning og det vil man ikke vænne sig til. Man vil smide dem ud eller lade sig trampe ned, men vænne sig til det vil man ikke. Den luksus har kun politikerne, der håber det ikke ramler, mens deres karriere er på spil. Et demografisk pyramide spil er der sikkert nogen der har kaldt det.

Andre lader sig ikke ryste så let

muslimsk-kvinde-krydser-sin-tros-spor

Forargelsen er stor over at billedet er gået viralt, et snapshot er ude af kontekst og ingen ved, hvad der foregår under et muslimsk tørklæde. Sådan var det ikke med den døde dreng i vandkanten, der blev selve symbolet på de lukkede europæiske grænsers grusomme konsekvenser. Men drengens familie var ikke flygtninge, de boede trygt og tyrkisk og ville til Canada selv om de havde fået afslag. Medierne labbede også den muslimske brud, der lagde blomster efter terrorangrebet i Australien til sig - et så flot billede at man næsten skulle tro, det var til ære for fotograferne, hvis ikke ens menneskesyn var bedrevidende. Og medierne faldt også på halen da den ensomme muslimske kvinde i ikke kunne finde en plads blandt de afvisende danskere, selvom historien var den modsatte.

Men billedet af den tilsyneladende indifferente muslimske kvinde der krydser ummeans spor fortæller den grundlæggende sandhed, som den europæiske islamofobirapport anno 2016 forsøger at benægte på imponerende 612 sider. Det samme gør Theresa islam-er-fjong May der ved at en historie skal frames hurtigt, hvis den skal overleve mands minde i nyhedsstrømmen.

Taking on the role of a theologian, Theresa May insisted: “It is wrong to describe this as Islamic terrorism. It is Islamist terrorism. It is a perversion of a great faith.”

Speaking in Parliament, she also said the attack showed “the importance of all of our faiths working together, and recognising the values that we share”.

Adding: “This act of terror was not an act of faith. It was a perversion; a warped ideology, which leads to an act of terrorism like that and it will not prevail.”

Men ak, nyhedsstrømmen udtrykker også den bedrøvelige sandhed, her fanget ved tilfældige screenshots fra Al Jazeera

I vores broderland, der importerer så meget fætterkultur, er politikerne rystede over at våben strømmer ind over landets grænser og det sker via Danmark. Politichefen i Malmø siger at det er mest til kriminelle, men “De er ikke spesielt organiserte, mer kamerater som kjenner hverandre og bygger ulike nettverk” og det lyder jo langt mere hyggeligt og tilforladeligt. Og ikke et ord om islam.

Berlingske Tidendes 80er propaganda

Sådan så Berlingske Tidendes, nu et par uger gamle kampagne ud og der medfulgte et interview med jordemoderen, der skulle uddybe nuanceringen af debatten. Er det en flygtning, islamist, eller jordemoder vi ser? Kasper Støvring spurgte på Facebook “Men hvad nu, hvis kvinden er alle tre ting? Det er da også en overraskende nuancering.”. For som det blev suppleret af flere, så er der ingen modsætning mellem islamisme, terrorisme og uddannelse og et eksempel blev hentet fra Uriasposten.

Men også et andet eksempel, som vi har været glade for på Monokultur, blev hentet frem. Douglas Murray beskrev nemlig for et par år siden, muslimen lidt mere nuanceret i forbindelse med nogle obligatoriske anti-israelske demonstrationer, han havde observeret i London, på baggrund af at Israel frækt igen-igen nægtede at lade sig ydmyge

I have watched them a bit in recent days, watched the contorted hatred on their faces as they scream at the embassy and then watched their friendly sociability as the headscarfed women are driven away by their menfolk, often with their children in tow — a family day outing in “diverse” modern London. Behind their smiles and the increasingly competent public relations that the pro-Hamas faction is managing in Britain, it is possible for some people to forget that what brings these people out is one simple thing: a hatred of the Jewish state and a desire to see it annihilated by the terrorists of Hamas or anyone else at hand.

Lene Kattrup havde mange gode indvendinger til dette stykke 80er propaganda, men jeg vil frem een, som ofte er fremdraget her på Monokultur, fordi det fremhæver den selvmodsigelse, der er indbygget i det multikulturelle narrativ

Overskriften (som er valgt af journalisten) er “Flygtning? Islamist? Jordemoder: »Selv om jeg ikke er streng, er jeg glad for mit tørklæde«.

Det synes jeg er en ”formindskende” og/eller misvisende omtale af hendes forhold til tørklædet og til den religion eller religiøse ideologi, som det islamiske tørklæde normalt er et symbol på, og som det sandsynligvis også repræsenterer for denne kvinde. For Soheila Azimi forklarer, at hvis hun havde skullet afføre sig det i arbejdstiden (men selvfølgelig kunne tage det på, straks hun fik fri), så ville hun have sagt sit job op. Dette fortæller os jo, at hun ikke kun er ” glad for tørklædet” som der står, og hun er jo så faktisk ”streng” på dette punkt. Det er en mulighed for, at hun bærer det for at vise, at hun går ind for sharialoven som lov. Lad læseren få lov til at tænke selv, ville jeg sige til journalisten og til Berlingske. Hvis journalisten var dygtig, kunne man jo have spurgt Soheila Azimi om det. Det ville have være klogt, men det tør journalisten måske ikke?

Nemlig. Der er ingen tvang i islam, men jeg skal have mit tørklæde på. Og hvad skal jeg mere…

Fri Debat uden ideologisk dagsorden

dsc02726

Fri Debats konference lørdag 6/2 stillede spørgsmålet, hvordan det er “kommet dertil, at blasfemi i dag betragtes som en sinister ideologi i kunst- og litteraturlivet, mens tavshed om den religiøse terror og tvang fremstår som progressiv blandt kunstnere og forfattere?” Til at besvare det spørgsmål havde man indbudt et panel bestående af færøske Heini i Skorini fra King’s College, Dennis Meyhoff Brink fra Københavns universitet og kunstnerne Lars Vilks fra Sverige og norske Thomas Knarvik til en næsten fyldt fællessal på Christiansborg.

I sin korte indledning sagde Henrik Dahl fra Liberal Alliance, at historien vil bedømme denne generation af politikere på hvor resolut de er i stand til at forsvare det liberale samfund. Som emnets alvor således blev placeret i historien var Niels Ivar Larsen manden for at motivere sin nylige afgang fra Lars Vilks Selskabet og positionere Fri Debat i “landskabet af ytringsfrihedsaktivister”. Fri debat var nemlig den mest principfaste forsvarer af ytringsfriheden uden ‘men’, blottet for ideologiske dagsordner og påstande om ytringsfrihed som noget kulturelt betinget.

Et principfast forsvar for ytringsfriheden kræver altså at man ikke lader sig præge af kulturalistiske dagsordner når man diskuterer blasfemi, censur og selvcensur blandt kunstnere. Men ikke nok med det, det kræver også et sikkerhedsapparat med snifferhunde og politifolk med maskinpistoler kunne man erfare og det er ikke fordi man frygter alle kulturelle repræsentanter lige meget. Mangel på proportioner giver åbenbart den bedste position i landskabet af ytringsfrihedsaktivister.

Dennis Meyhoff Brink, der er ekstern lektor ved institut for kunst og kulturvidenskab, foretog i sit oplæg en analogi mellem det kristne Europas udvikling fra Oplysningen og et tilsvarende perspektiv for den islamiske verden. Europa var kendetegnet ved at have den ubestrideligt højeste grad af religionskritik og satire i nogen civilisation og det var da også i Europa demokratiet opstod og trivedes. Årsagensforbindelsen var klar; Oplysningens blasfemiske satire udhulede, som dryp på en sten, med et Webersk udtryk, den fortryllede verden og tog frygten fra folk. Med frygtens fald fulgte også æresfrygten for præsten, der nu kunne latterliggøres, ikke blot som repræsentant for kirkens hykleri, men for religionen i sig selv.

Lars Vilks forklarede derefter hvorledes opfattelsen af geniet fordrede at kunstneren selv blev den skabende og gennemgik en række blasfemiske kunstværker; film af bl.a Lois Bunuel og Ken Russel og billeder som Piss Christ. Netop Piss Christ er trukket meget ind i debatten om religiøs krænkelse og islam for skønt nogle dybere lag i værket - at selve værket er et fotografi af en installation af et krucifiks nedsænket i glas urin - så blev der ikke taget hensyn til kristnes krænkede følelser, som man er vant til, når emnet er udfordring af islam.

Den norske kunstner Knarviks første forelæser på kunstakademiet var netop Lars Vilks. Knarvik viste endnu flere billeder end sin ‘læremester’ og mange han selv havde kreeret, som han fortalte om, hvorledes han var blevet engageret i kampen om ytringsfrihed og blasfemi, og hvorledes det havde påvirket hans kunstneriske retning. Knarvik er, som de øvrige panelister, ingen skimlet konservativ kulturkæmper. Han har f.eks blandt andet bygget et kulturcenter for massaikvinder og skabt en forfatterpersona, en muslimsk teenagepige under navnet Miss Supression Figther. For ham er mange muslimer de største ofre for de jihadister, der har taget deres religion som gidsel og gjort den største karikatur af Muhammed.

Men han har også overhørt skrigene fra en pige, der blev omskåret og bevidnet hvorledes kvinderne, der forestod omskæringen, kom ud af hytten og smed det omskårne ud til naturen. Og hans interesse for islam, som en trussel mod ytringsfriheden, blev vakt da han hørte den norske statsminister undskylde for alverden, at den norske avis Dagbladet havde trykt Muhammedtegninger.

Knarvik udgav på 10-årsdagen for offentliggørelsen af Jyllands-Postens Muhammedtegninger en mere end 100 sider lang samling af blasfemiske tegninger rettet mod alle religioner. Et norsk forlag havde i første omgang trykt den i 2.500 eksemplarer og den lå klar på en europalle, da forlaget blev ængsteligt ved udsigten til endnu en Muhammedkrise og makulerede hele oplaget. Bogen er i stedet udkommet på Kåre Bluitgens forlag.

Men det var den første oplægsholder, Heine i Skorini, der leverede det mest almeninteressante oplæg, da han perspektiverede den islamiske trussel historisk. Han fortalte først om en Muhammedkrise i 1925, der blev udløst da den engelske morgenavis The Star havde trykt en tegning, hvor den tids legendariske cricketspiller Jack Hobbs ragede op som en kæmpe blandt andre historiske skikkelser, som Julius Cæsar, Columbus og så selvfølgelig muslimernes profet Muhammed. Muslimske organisationer protesterede højlydt og der var demonstrationer i Calcutta. Ingen døde dog, men episoden demonstrerede at ideen om at en nyopfunden islamisme adskilt fra en ægte, om ikke tolerant, så afdæmpet, islam ikke holder.

i Skorini fortalte hvorledes OIC (organisationen af islamiske lande), gennem FN har arbejdet målrettet på at gøre blasfemi til en krænkelse af menneskerettighederne. OIC ser den islamiske verden være under pres både udefra, ikke mindst fra Vesten, og indefra. I Kairo deklarationen fra 1990 hedder det således at formålet bl.a er ”cleanse our societys of moral laxity deviation” og dens artikel 22 slår fast at ytringsfriheden (og alt andet i øvrigt) skal underlægges den muslimske sharia lovgivning.

Bastante religiøse krav til en sekulær organisation, som FN er ikke effektivt og i 1999 skiftede organisationen taktik til en sekulær argumentation. Nu brugte man i stedet FNs egne artikler, som artikel 29, der betoner ansvar over frihed og artikel 22 om hadtale, til at få ytringsfriheden underlagt sharia. For OIC var religionskrænkelse, som grundlæggende blot betød krænkelse af islam jvf sharia-kravet ovenfor, en krænkelse af menneskerettigheder på linje med racisme, intolerance, islamofobi og ekstremisme. OICs nye argumentation var derfor også på linje med den vestlige venstrefløjs tankegang og det skabte en naturlig alliance af parallelinteresser.

Netop det sidste punkt, at se blasfemi som ekstremisme, er forklaringen på, hvorfor muslimske landes fordømmelser af islamisk terror, som Saudiarabiens fordømmelse af angrebet på Charlie Hebdo, altid ledsages af fordømmelser af ekstremisme i al almindelighed. De myrdede, som redaktionen på Charlie Hebdo, er nemlig lige så ekstreme i deres brug af ytringsfriheden, som deres mordere. Og det er en retorik som man hører ikke blot fra venstrefløjen men fra vestlige ledere.

Det var en journalist fra information, der stillede det første spørgsmål til panelet, om forskellen på satirens antiklerikale, politiske angreb og kunstens ikonografiske behandling af det blasfemiske, førend to tilhørere ville vide, hvad Saudiarabiens betydning for FNs Råd for Menneskerettigheder og OICs fremtid som Saudiarabiens økonomiske situation ser drastisk anderledes ud med de faldende oliepriser. Saudiarabien sponserer OIC og organiserer dagsordenen på de indre linjer, mens det er Pakistan der tegner organisationen i FN.  Skorini svarede at det dels udstiller FN for hvad det er, en samling af de regimer og regeringer i verden, der nu engang er og at Saudiarabiens betydning for OIC ikke vil ændre sig de første mange år, dertil er rollerne for satte. Og så svarede Vilks og Knarvik meget pædagogisk at satire er meget bundet i en konkret debat i tid og sted, mens kunst ikke søger et konkret politisk budskab og kan værdsættes ud over tid.

Først herefter var der en tilhører, der ville have svar på konferencens spørgsmål, nemlig, hvorfor kunstnere, og alle os andre såmænd, var mere optaget af selvkritik end af religionskritik, selv når vi blev konfronteret med en trussel. Spørgsmålet kom næsten bag på panelet, der dog hver for sig svarede at det traditionelt var lettere og moralsk mere acceptabelt at levere angreb på værdier inden for egen kulturkreds end at kritisere, hvad man kunne opfatte som udsatte minoriteter med kulturelt betingede problemer. Det handlede, med udgangspunkt i eksemplet Carsten Jensens jævnlig tirader, om hvem der havde ret til at kritisere andre. Og det var en god pointe, for ingen vil jo mistænkes for at have en ideologisk dagsorden.

Og det var der også en tilhører der heller ikke ville og mindede Meyhoff Brink om at satire ikke kun var forbeholdt vesten og fortalte om en irakisk ateistisk bevægelse der bedrev en ganske giftig satire. Desværre blev denne bevægelse slået hårdt ned beklagede han og besvarede således sit eget spørgsmål, inden islameksperten Tina Magaard tog ordet og sagde at hun faktisk havde skrevet om blasfemisk satire i den muslimske verden ikke mindst Iran. Det var Magaards pointe at netop Muhammed satire var et inkluderende redskab i integrationen i vores selvkritiske kultur og at man skulle vise skolebørn muhammedtegninger fra den muslimske verden, der almindeligvis var langt grovere end de tegninger Jyllands-Posten udgav.

Og så var det, at det sidste spørgsmål kom fra en tilhører, der ville høre panelet, hvorledes det ville se ud med ytringsfriheden om føje tid i et stadigt mindre demokratisk Europa “og med en stadig mere islamisk indflydelse”. Det er svært at holde en hel konference om “religiøs terror og tvang” og “blasfemi” uden at komme ind på noget ‘kulturelt betinget’, ideologisk dagsorden eller ej. Inden det skulle besvares syntes Meyhoff Brink at det var på sin plads med et fejlcitat og sagde “Jeg synes også det er racistisk når Hedegaard siger at ‘alle muslimske mænd, onkler og fædre, voldtager deres døtre…”. Men ytringsfrihedens fremtidsudsigter i et mere et mindre demokratisk og mere islamificeret Europa var et svært spørgsmål at forholde sig til på falderebet af konferencen, sagde Ivar Larsen og gav ordet til i Skorini.

Forholdene i Danmark var ikke nær så dårlige som i England, forklarede i Skorini og sagde at han selv måtte forberede sig ganske anderledes når han holdt foredrag i London end i Danmark. Og det var ikke blot kønsopdelte arrangementer, men også sikkerhedsproblemer fordi så mange kunne blive stødt og emnets indhold. Men han mindede om at de islamistiske grupper udgjorde en meget lille og ikke repræsentativ minoritet blandt de muslimske studerende, men realiteterne var deusagtet at det var svært for ham at bevare en optisme. Og med den kedelige udsigt var konferencen slut.

Uagtet hvor urepræsentative og lille en minoritet islamister udgør på campus, kan man alligevel konkludere, hvad i Skorini og Fri Debat helst vil tøve med, at jo flere kulturelt betingede muslimer vi ser på campus og i vores land, jo mere vil det være islamisternes dagsorden vi vil leve under. Men dyster som fremtiden ser ud kan man glæde sig over at vi i Danmark har et levende landskab af ytringsfrihedsaktivister med hele tre virile selskaber i Fri Debat, Trykkefrihedsselskabet og Lars Vilks Komiteen. At det til tider bærer lidt præg af positionering og nok også en snert af intern personrivalisering er en lille detalje og måske blot et bidrag til at holde konkurrencen skarp og landskabet frodigt. Fri Debats arrangement var så velafholdt og oplysende, som man er kommet til at forvente det i Danmark - men desværre med et tilhørende sikkerhedsopbud, selv for de, der ikke vil vedkende sig en ideologisk dagsorden.

Shia mod sunni

Saudi-arabien har til Irans store fortrydelse henrettet en shiamuslimsk imam. Diplomatiske forbindelser er sløjfet og truslerne om hævn hænger stadigt tykkere i luften. Sunni mod Shia med Saudiarabien og Iran hovedaktørerne i dette seneste kapitel i denne snart 1.400 år gamle islamiske krig ser ud til at blusse op igen. Charles Krauthammer koncentrerer sin analyse i National Review om Obamas udenrigspolitik

Commenting on Saudi Arabia executing an Iranian cleric, Krauthammer said, “I can’t say the Saudi execution of this Shiite cleric was very wise, but they did see it as in their national interest, and I think they are acting fairly desperately. Because they look around and their protector since the 1930s when King Saud met with FDR, and they essentially established this relationship — ‘you supply us oil, we protect you’ — is deeply in jeopardy.”

“They look at the way Obama has abandoned them,” Krauthammer continued. “The nuclear deal is just the culmination of the process. Abandoned them in Syria, abandoning the red line, has done nothing since the signing of the nuclear agreement.”

Krauthammer said the Saudis now worry about encirclement: “Iran has become increasingly aggressive in Syria. In Yemen, which is, remember, is right on the doorstep of Saudi Arabia – it’s not removed the way Syria is – and they see serious encirclement.”

Også i Wall Street Journal kan man læse om den amerikanske eftergivenhedspolitiks fallit

President Obama imagined he could end his second term with an arms-control detente with Iran the way Ronald Reagan did with the Soviet Union. It looks instead that his nuclear deal has inspired Iran toward new military aggression and greater anti-American hostility.

The U.S. and United Nations both say Iran is already violating U.N. resolutions that bar Iran from testing ballistic missiles. Iran has conducted two ballistic-missile tests since the nuclear deal was signed in July, most recently in November. The missiles seem capable of delivering nuclear weapons with relatively small design changes.

The White House initially downplayed the missile tests, but this week it did an odd flip-flop on whether to impose new sanctions in response. On Wednesday it informed Congress that it would target a handful of Iranian companies and individuals responsible for the ballistic-missile program. Then it later said it would delay announcing the sanctions, which are barely a diplomatic rebuke in any case, much less a serious response to an arms-control violation.

Under the nuclear accord, Iran will soon receive $100 billion in unfrozen assets as well as the ability to court investors who are already streaming to Tehran.

(…)

The White House’s media allies are blaming all of this on Iranian “hard-liners” who are supposedly trying to undermine President Rouhani for having negotiated the nuclear deal. Memo to these amateur Tehranologists: The hard-liners run Iran.

Og for at tvære pointen helt ud “The sages now blaming hard-liners for Iran’s nastiness are the same folks who told us that the nuclear accord would empower the “moderates” in Iran by showing America’s peaceful intentions”. “Change” var hvad folk ville have uden at vide hvad det rent faktisk indebar og så fik de forandring. En forandring til det værre fordi flertallet ikke kunne tænke.

Det hele er nu ikke Obamas skyld. Islam er en rådden verden og et kollaps eller endnu en krig er uundgåeligt uanset vestlig naivitet. Spengler tegner i Asia Times et dystert billede for Saudiarabien, som lider under faldende olipriser (hvilket Obama med sin anti-fracking politik ikke har hverken lod eller del i)

Worst of all, the collapse of Saudi oil revenues threatens to exhaust the kingdom’s $700 billion in financial reserves within five years, according to an October estimate by the International Monetary Fund (as I discussed here). The House of Saud relies on subsidies to buy the loyalty of the vast majority of its subjects, and its reduced spending power is the biggest threat to its rule. Last week Riyadh cut subsidies for water, electricity and gasoline. The timing of the executions may be more than coincidence: the royal family’s capacity to buy popular support is eroding just as its regional security policy has fallen apart.

For decades, Riyadh has presented itself as an ally of the West and a force for stability in the region, while providing financial support for Wahhabi fundamentalism around the world. China has been the kingdom’s largest customer as well as a provider of sophisticated weapons, including surface-to-surface missiles. But China also has lost patience with the monarchy’s support for Wahhabi Islamists in China and bordering countries.

According to a senior Chinese analyst, the Saudis are the main source of funding for Islamist madrassas in Western China, where the “East Turkistan Independence Movement” has launched several large-scale terror attacks. Although the Saudi government has reassured Beijing that it does not support the homegrown terrorists, it either can’t or won’t stop some members of the royal family from channeling funds to the local jihadis through informal financial channels. “Our biggest worry in the Middle East isn’t oil—it’s Saudi Arabia,” the analyst said.

China’s Muslims—mainly Uyghurs in Western China who speak a Turkish dialect—are Sunni rather than Shia.  Like Russia, China does not have to worry about Iranian agitation among Shia jihadis, and tends to prefer Iran to the Sunni powers. As a matter of form, Beijing wants to appear even-handed in its dealings with Iran and Saudi Arabia, for example in recent contacts between their respective navies. Chinese analysts emphasize that Beijing has sold weapons to both—more in absolute to terms to Iran but more sophisticated weapons to the Saudis.

More pertinent than public diplomacy, though, is where China is buying its oil.

Nonetheless, China’s oil import data show a significant shift away from Saudi Arabia towards Russia and Oman (which China considers part of the Iranian sphere of influence). Russia’s oil exports to China have grown fourfold since 2010 while Saudi exports have stagnated. Given the world oil glut, China can pick and choose its suppliers, and it is hard to avoid the inference that Beijing is buying more from Russia for strategic reasons.  According to Russian sources, China also has allowed Russian oil companies to delay physical delivery of oil due under existing contracts, permitting Russia to sell the oil on the open market for cash—the equivalent of a cash loan to Russia.

Det er alt sammen meget spændende og man kunne jo nyde sine popcorn til øllerne, hvis ikke det var således at den vestlige naivitet havde importeret nisserne. Ifølge BBC er der stigende bekymring for at “the sectarian divides so bitterly apparent in much of the Middle East” mellem sunnimuslimer og shiamuslimer udvikler sig yderligere i England. En shiamuslim fortæller

“Even at Soas, a university I love, Sunnis and Shias have big arguments all the time,” says Anahita.

“And elsewhere in London, we have the same problem - Sunni and Shia arguing. You can clearly see it when you walk in Edgware Road or Kilburn.

“If you have a green bracelet or anything that shows you are Shia, they look at you as if you are not even Muslim, or you don’t exist. It’s very disrespectful, and very sad.

“Islamic societies in general and especially in London are getting bigger all the time. But not in a good way.”

En tilflyttet shiamuslim mærker nu hvordan muslimer behandler ikke muslimer - og så er det lige pludselig ikke godt at der bliver flere af de andre muslimer i London. Hvor flygter muslimerne næste gang hen, når de bliver mange nok?

Inklusion

En journalist fra CNN opdager et ISIS lignende flad ved London Gay Pride parade og spekulerer i om det er en trussel. Men det viste sig at være et personligt up yours - som ingen andre homser ser ud til at være en del af - hvor de arabiske korancitater var erstattet med silhuetter af sex-legetøj. Men virkeligheden er klar, islam kan ikke inkluderes i Gay-Pride segmentet. Hos Mirror kan man se hvorledes ISIS kaster homoseksuelle i døden fra hustage

Krigen om det fælles rum

Danmarks Radio skriver at muslimer er ofre efter terrorattentatet, hvor en muslim først likviderede en dansker og siden en jøde.

Det muslimske miljø i Danmark oplever i disse dage diskrimination og deciderede overgreb som følge af weekendens terrorangreb i København.

Sådan lyder det fra flere organisationer. Konsulent og næstformand i Exitcirklen, Khaterah Parwani, arbejder til daglig med afradikalisering, og hun har fået “mindst 10″ henvendelser i denne uge fra kvinder, der er blevet udsat for voldelige angreb eller anden form for diskrimination.

- Der har helt klart været en eskalering efter angrebet. Det er jeg slet ikke i tvivl om, siger Khaterah Parwani, der også er juridisk rådgiver og talsperson for Dokumentations- og rådgivningscenter om racediskrimination (DRC).

- Jeg har haft rigtig mange henvendelser fra piger, som har haft mange ubehagelige oplevelser. Det er fysiske overgreb i form af kvælertag, vold, spyt og skub, siger hun.

“Københavns Politi har dog ikke modtaget nogen anmeldelser, der har med muslimer, trusler og chikane at gøre, siger vicepolitiinspektør Jens Møller Jensen.” Men virkeligheden er underordnet for muslimer og i det multikulturelle samfund er man sine egne nærmest. Derfor har muslimer dannet deres eget vagtværn, skriver MetroXpress

Talsmanden for gruppen i København, der kalder sig ‘Beskyt dine søstre’, fortæller til metroxpress, at der er flere hundrede mænd, der er klar til at rykke ud, hvis en kvinde bliver overfaldet.

- Vi er ikke en bande eller et tæskehold. Vi er fredelige muslimer, der ikke ønsker nogen noget ondt, uanset hvad de tror på. Hvis politiet ikke kan finde ud af at passe deres arbejde, så må vi hjælpe dem, siger han.

Gruppen har 1.545 medlemmer i skrivende stund.

Hvis gerningsmanden stadig er på stedet, når gruppen dukker frem, vil de foretage en civil anholdelse, siger talsmanden:

- Hvis hun er ved at blive fysisk overfaldet, så bliver han også overfaldet, så bliver der lavet en civil anholdelse og ringet efter politiet.

Gruppen blev oprettet efter terrorhandlingerne i Paris i starten af januar, og ifølge talsmanden findes lignende grupper over hele landet.

- Der har været utallige eksempler på ‘hate crimes’ mod muslimer, og det blev intensiveret efter det, der skete i Frankrig. Vi snakker om uskyldige, forsvarsløse kvinder, der ikke har gjort nogen noget, siger gruppens talsmand, der har kendskab til ti overfald siden sidste weekend.

England er længere i den udvikling. Fra Youtube

Over the last year a quasi-religious turf war has sprung up on the streets of London. Young radicalised Muslim patrols are enforcing Shariah law in the capital. In reaction, far right Christian Patrols are also taking the law into their own hands.

Since the Woolwich killing, anti-Muslim rhetoric as been at an all time high, and the right-wing Christian Patrols are only exacerbating the rising tensions.

These two marginalised but potentially dangerous London subcultures believe that society has failed their communities enough that they are now taking to the streets to implement or defend their ways of life, according to their opposing politicised and religious ideologies.

The irony being that while their shared aggressive approach has resulted in media coverage and media panic, they ultimately are responsible for and justify each other’s existence.

Alex Miller meets the leaders and footsoldiers in Britain’s holy street patrols, the Anjem Choudary’s followers Muslim Patrol and Paul Golding of Britain First’s Christian Patrol, in the same area he lives and works, to find out just how effective their operations are, and how genuine their belief is in the battle for East London’s streets.

Træt af at være forkælet

I Ekstra Bladet kunne man læse noget så fantastisk som hvad der gjorde en global meningsdanner træt. Svaret var det at være ung i Danmark. Bemærkelsesværdigt handlede det ikke om at drikke  mange øl, noget unge danskere er gode til og som gør een træt. Nej, den globale meningsdanner er træt af at Anders Fogh ladet ordet ’rundkredspædagogik’ så negativt, at Morten Østergaard har skåret i SUen, at Women against Feminism bliver større, træt af multinationale selskaber og PiaKjærsgaard.

Den globale meningsdanner er 18 år og hedder Sophie W og hun er global meningsdanner for Mellemfolkeligt Samvirke. Jeg ved ærligt talt ikke, hvad det betyder, men det er ironisk både at høre, hvad der gør unge mennesker trætte og at det globale er rent danske forhold. Vi kan trøste med at ungdom kun er en overgang. Om få år, og de går hurtigt min pige, vil du savne ungdommen og den ulidelige træthed når du som os andre ruiner kæmper med nedslidthed.

Men vi vil også komme med en lille advarsel, hvis Sophie W skulle bevæge sig uden for sit mellemfolkelige samvirke, for danske unge har det globalt set bedre end så mange andre. Et par eksempler fra samme dags rundtur på nettet viser at det også kan være trættende at være ung inder i England som Daily Mail skriver

This photo shows the horrific injuries a Sikh woman suffered after being attacked by her father-in-law because he thought she was having an affair with a Muslim man.

Jageer Mirgind was left blind and scarred for life after 51-year-old Manjit Mirgind slashed her wrists and stabbed her in the eyes screaming ‘I am going to kill you’.

Mrs Mirgind’s children, just three and six years old, watched the horrific attack at their mother’s home in Kensington Gardens, Ilford, East London, and pleaded with their grandfather to stop.

The mother has been left partially-sighted in both eyes while the children can no longer sleep alone and have recurring nightmares.

Det er også trættende at være ung fra negerland som The Express skriver

The mutilation, a traditional practice in the west African republic of Cameroon, aims to deter unwanted male attention, pregnancy and rape by delaying the signs that a girl is becoming a woman.

Experts believe the custom is being practised among the several thousand Cameroonians living in Britain. Schools are training staff to look out for signs of the barbaric practice. The move follows heightened awareness of female genital mutilation.

Campaigners want to see the same prominence given to other forms of cultural abuse, such as breast ironing. Margaret Nyuydzewira, co-founder of the charity CAME Women’s And Girl’s Development Organisation, says authorities need to take action faster than they have on stopping FGM in the UK.

Det muslimske sind

Jeg har undgået at høre de sædvanlige forklaringer på, hvorfor unge mænd (muslimer) fra Vesten drages af ekstremisme (islam) og kan finde på at drage i hellig krig (jihad) i Syrien og Irak. Det afhænger ikke af sociale eller uddannelsesmæssige forhold, ej heller af niveauet af muslimskhed i opvæksten. Det handler blot om at være muslim og kæmpe for islam, som man kan læse ud af en rimeligt serøs artikel (fra fremtiden) i Economist

Western fighters often seem to jump at the chance to take part in a fight or help build a new Islamic state. The Soufan Group, a New York-based intelligence outfit, reckons that by the end of May as many as 12,000 fighters from 81 nations had joined the fray, among them some 3,000 from the West (see chart). The number today is likely to be a lot higher. Since IS declared a caliphate on June 29th, recruitment has surged. Syria has drawn in fighters faster than in any past conflict, including the Afghan war in the 1980s or Iraq after the Americans invaded in 2003.

The beheading on or around August 19th of James Foley, an American journalist, by a hooded fighter with a London accent, has put a spotlight on Britain. In the 1990s London was a refuge for many extremists, including many Muslim ones. Radical preachers were free to spout hate. Britain remains in many ways the centre of gravity for European jihadist networks, says Thomas Hegghammer of the Norwegian Defence Research Establishment. “The radical community in Britain is still exporting ideas and methods.”

While the overwhelming majority of foreign fighters in Syria are Arabs, Britons make up one of the biggest groups of Western fighters. But Belgians, Danes and others have a higher rate per person (see left-hand chart above). France, which has tighter laws against extremism, has also seen more of its citizens go off to wage jihad.

(…)

IS is not the only group Westerners join, but it is the most appealing thanks to its global outlook, which includes spreading the caliphate across the world, to its attempts to implement immediate sharia law—and to the glow of its military success.

(…)

Those who talked of defending Syrians now deny that the land belongs to the locals, says Shiraz Maher of ICSR. “Bilad al-Sham”, or Greater Syria, has a special status in Islam because it appears in end-of-time prophecies. It belongs to Allah, fighters declare. But what if Syrians do not want Islamic law? “It’s not up to them, because it’s for Islam to implement Islamic rule,” says the European fighter who says he left his home country because it was not Islamic enough. He says he wants to “educate rather than behead Syrians”.

(…)

Most of IS’s ideas and all of its gorier methods are rejected by most Muslims, who see the group simply as criminal. But it does draw on Islamic theology, arguing—for instance—that non-Muslims should pay jizya, a special tax.

Hvad muslimer tænker (eller, hvad journalisten ønsker de tænker) er som sagt uden betydning: “It’s not up to them, because it’s for Islam to implement Islamic rule”.

Many say they feel more comfortable in a country where the way of life is Islamic—even if not yet Islamic enough—and have no plans to leave or carry out attacks elsewhere. “I am much happier here—got peace of mind,” says the European fighter.

But others who have gone to Syria to battle against Mr Assad have become disillusioned, says Mr Neumann. They worry about infighting and about killing other Muslims. “This is not what we came for,” they tell him.

Der er selvfølgelig variationer i antallet af muslimer fra forskellige lande og retninger og etniciteter som der også er det i bevæggrundende. Og det er hvad der er tale om, variationer, som der altid vil være når der er tale om mennesker. Men variationerne er over et tema, islam, og trenden er klar. Det er en folkelig bevægelse. Man har råbt ad fontes og uagtet hvad en spinkelt flertal måtte mene er almindelig fornuft, som Vesten har inspireret til så er islam islam og man må tage hele pakken - det er ikke op til en selv.

Men variationerne vil være halmstrå til allehånde bortforklaringer om at det intet har med islam at gøre (som jeg lige hørte David Cameron gentage i TV - forstår politikerne vitterligt ikke at de udhuler deres påstand når de tvinges til at slå den fast igen og igen og igen?), at vi har en ansvar og derfor også evnen til at ændre, hvad der ikke behøver at være sådan. Det er ikke monstre, der tager kravet om jihad alvorligt, det er almindelige mennesker, der er muslimer. Som regnvejr reducerer antallet af demonstranter, således betyder faciliteterne også noget for, hvilke kampe man vælger at tage

But junk food is in ample supply, tweets a Swedish fighter, more happily. And there is a lot of time, sometimes days on end, for “chilling”, says the European fighter on Kik, a smartphone messaging app. That is when he makes “a normal-life day: washing clothes, cleaning the house, training, buying stuff”. Thanks to satellite internet connections, the continuing flow of goods into the country and the relatively decent level of development compared with elsewhere in the region, Syria is a long way from the hardship of Afghanistan’s mountains. Last year, to attract others to come, jihadists tweeted pictures with the hashtag “FiveStarJihad”.

Kedsomhed nævnes også som en del af forklaringen, men det kan kun påvirke variationen (hvorfor keder muslimer sig så ekstremt?)

More plausible explanations are the desire to escape the ennui of home and to find an identity. “Some individuals are drawn out there because there is not a lot going on in their own lives,” says Raffaello Pantucci, an analyst at the Royal United Services Institute, a London think-tank. Images of combatants playing snooker, eating sweets and splashing in swimming pools have sometimes suggested that jihad was not unlike a student holiday, without the booze. For young men working in dead-end jobs in drab towns, the brotherhood, glory and guns seem thrilling. Many of Belgium’s fighters come from the dullest of cities, where radicals have concentrated their efforts to get recruits.

I sidste uge kunne man i Telegraph læse lidt nærmere om det sørgelige muslimske sind.

Choudhury, 31, who once ran a Muslim youth group, has been accused of being the ringleader, blamed for recruiting his friends. Others suggest he was simply a willing volunteer, a married father with two children, aged five and two, who was disaffected with life in Britain and desperate for a change of scene.

He had worked for an insurance company and then his local council as a racial awareness officer. But he was also a con artist, who had tricked his own family out of tens of thousands of pounds.

In 2010, he conned them out of £25,000, under the false pretence of needing treatment for cancer, to go to Singapore, not once but twice for surgery.

Once there, Choudhury, who was in perfect health, spent the money on prostitutes costing £200 a night, his penchant for young women revealed in text messages discovered by police.

Back in Portsmouth, he resumed the habit. He went on what he called “lads’ holidays” to Morocco three times and twice more to Singapore in 2011 and 2012, while at the same time downloading lectures by extremist preachers, extolling the virtues of an Islamic caliphate. To atone for his sins, Choudhury decided to embark on a holy war.

(…)

Jaman, a former worker in a Sky customer service call centre, whose parents owned an Indian takeaway restaurant in Portsmouth. He had studied at an Islamic boarding school in London, but life in a call centre proved boring and un-demanding. In May last year, he went to Syria and began recruiting his eager friends. In messages posted on Twitter and other internet sites, he painted a romanticised version of life on the front line, boasting of a “five star jihad”.

A month before he went, Choudhury asked Jaman what kind of gun he could buy for £50. “I had a hand gun but it’s not a great one. I bought it [for] $30,” replied Jaman in messages seized by British police while building up their case against Choudhury.

(…)

Once the men landed in Turkey, they were met by an intermediary who took them overland to the Syrian border. From there, they crossed the border easily and were driven straight to an abandoned hospital in Aleppo, Syria’s second largest city, and scene of ferocious fighting.

“You could tell it was an abandoned building with broken pipes and wires,” Choudhury said at his trial at Kingston Crown Court. “No one spoke English. We had a meal of pasta and whilst eating, the table was shaking from the shelling.”

He said he was made to do the cooking and washing and look after children in a makeshift nursery. He had gone with grand ambitions.

In a series of tweets on September 16 and 17 last year, he wrote: “Leaving wife & kids behind for Jihad… All my life I strived to be something, someone, but isn’t being a Muslim something, someone. Isn’t being a Muslim the best thing ever?… The life of this world is nothing but a sweet poison that quenches the thirst of desire and drags the ungrateful soul deeper into Hell!” But in Syria he had become quickly disaffected.

Triste skæbner, nogle dør, andre kan ikke klare og nogle bliver sat til at skure lokummer. Og så vil man hellere bruge 2000 kroner på en luder men kun 500 kroner på et våben når man skal i krig. Men kedsomhed? Kone og børn og et produktivt liv tilfredsstiller ikke muslimen? Hvorfor?

Drømmen om jihad er depraveret ifølge Firatnews, der har set en dokumentar med det passende navn “Gang of Degenerates” (der skal tages forbehold for sandhedsværdien af det følgende, men måske er det historier om hvad man hygger sig med på en sådan “jihad student holiday” der drager?)

Attention was drawn in the documentary to the fact ISIS’s most effective weapon is its ability to create fear and terror by means of its methods, such as random killings regardless of gender, age, religion or ethnicity, its decapitations, rapes and burying people alive. The gangs do not feel a need to conceal what they have perpetrated, on the contrary they publish their atrocities so that more people can see them.

(…)

The most lurid part of the documentary was the part in which gang members gave their ‘marriage’ numbers in addition to their names and ISIS membership numbers. For instance, Cinêd Cemîl Silêman said his membership number was 333, while his marriage number was 583.

Mihemed Sebah Hebe? said his membership number was 500, and his marriage number was 400.

The ISIS members admitted that what they called ‘marriage’ was in fact rape. They said that every new member of the organisation was raped. The footage of the rape would be used as blackmail in the event of the new recruit refusing to participate in actions.

20-year-old Ferhan Salim Unûf Safên said he had been abducted by Silêman Kohnê, Ebû Qûteybe and Cinêd Cemîl and suffered multiple rapes. “I fainted. When I came round they told me: ‘you are now with ISIS in Jazaa.’ They told me to join. I said it was not possible. They did terrible thiungs to me. Things even the Americans didn’t do in Abu Graib. Things even the Israelis haven’t done to the Palestinians. I’m ashamed to explain them. There were 6 or 7 of them. Their faces were covered. They ‘married me’ about ten times!”

Ebdulkerîm Îbrahîm Bazo said ‘marriage’ was a rule in order to be a member of the organisation. Bazo said the ‘wedding’ was carried out like a ceremony, adding: “those who did it to me said I had gained morale and strength to fight.”

(…)

Bazo added that the footage recorded was used as blackmail. He said: “Silêman Kohnê took me to a village, where my ‘marriage’ was performed by Hecî Newaf Mele Mehmûd. They blindfolded me and carried out the wedding. About a fortnight later they came and said I had to participate in the organisation. I didn’t want to. But they had the footage. They threatened to show it to my family.”

Ehmed Hisên explained horrifying incidents; “I’m from the Sharbaniyan tribe in Malikiyê (Derik). Silêman Kohnê proposed that I join ISIS some time ago. But I told him I was newly married and did not want to be involved in such things. I was then abducted and drugged. When I came to I was in a room which stank terribly. They wouldn’t let me leave the room. Five people came in and told me I should join the organisation, I refused. Then they tortured me. They extinguished cigarettes on my body. Such things were not done to Iraqis at Guantanamo. You would think I was an infidel. They blindfolded and stripped me. They ‘married’ me 15 times. Then they washed my head and put cologne on me. They told me no one could join ISIS without being married. Then they recited very strange verses of the Quran. As they spoke I imagined images of severed heads. They spoke academic Arabic.”

Måske optræder serierøvpuling ikke ved ISIS jobsamtaler, men groteskheder er der nok af

En dag kom den hvide mand til indianerne og ville købe deres jord. “Vores jord?”, spurgte høvdingen, “Hvad mener du med at ville købe vores jord? Vi har huder og forskelligt indianer merchandise du kan købe. Endda en sqauw smider jeg med da jeg har forstrukket en muskel, men ingen kan da eje jorden. Den er blot til stede.”

Den hvide mand insisterede “Ikke desto mindre vil jeg gerne købe jorden. Jeg giver noget 12 års ildvand og smider nogle jetoner med i købet. Hvem ved, i får måske brug for dem en dag.”

“Ha, ha” lo høvdingen og alle indianerne med “det lyder sgu som et godt tilbud at du vil give os noget for ingenting. Vil du ikke også have regnen og vinden? Eller måske skumringstiden? Kunne sagte mumlen friste?”

“Nej tak, det bliver ikke nødvendigt, blot jorden”. Med fest indgik indianerne deres første og sidste handel med den hvide mand.

I disse Akkari tider, hvor sandheden om islam ikke længere kan fortrænges (selv om mange stadig trodser virkeligheden) vil jeg i stedet citere en af de mange stemmer der ikke behøvede at være insider for at have indsigt, nemlig Lone Nørgaard. I et læser til Kristeligt Dagblad skrev hun sidste år i forbindelse med Dansk Supermarkeds knæfald for islamisk segregeringsbeklædning følgende

Sam Solomon og Elias Al Maqdisi peger i deres lille bog ”Al-Hijra: The Islamic Doctrine og Immigration” (2009) på, at der findes en islamisk doktrin om migration, der stammer tilbage fra Muhammeds udvandring til Medina i år 622, der udgør det ideologiske grundlag for målet om erobring gennem migration. Briten Patrick Sookhdeo, der er direktør for The Institute for the Study of Islam and Christianity, er tidligere muslim, og ifølge ham foreligger der en mere eller mindre detaljeret køreplan for islamiseringen af Europa.

I 1980 udgav The Islamic Council of Europe en bog med titlen ”Muslim Communities in Non-Muslim States”, som giver anvisninger på, hvordan muslimer skal leve i Vesten. De detaljerede og faseinddelte instruktioner til minoritetsmuslimer kan koges ned til følgende: I skal samle jer og organisere jer med det formål at etablere et levedygtigt muslimsk fællesskab baseret på islam (læs: sharia – med islam kommer altid kravet om sharia).

Det er pligten for hver eneste muslim. I skal oprette moskeer, kulturcentre og islamiske skoler. Naturligvis skal piger og kvinder være iført hijab. I skal for enhver pris undgå at blive assimileret i majoritetsbefolkningen. For at undgå assimilation skal I gruppere jer geografisk og danne områder med så høj en muslimsk koncentration som muligt, og I skal stille religiøse (læs: politiske) særkrav.

Eksemplerne er legio, men det mest chokerende i disse dage er alligevel Englands muslimske skoleovertagelse, som Telegraph skriver om

Schools in Birmingham are illegally segregating pupils, discriminating against non-Muslim students and restricting the GCSE syllabus to “comply with conservative Islamic teaching”, an official report leaked to The Telegraph discloses.

Department for Education inspectors said that girls in a school at the centre of the so-called “Trojan Horse” plot were forced to sit at the back of the class, some Christian pupils were left to “teach themselves” and an extremist preacher was invited to speak to children.

The report, into three schools in the city, follows weeks of controversy over the alleged plot to “Islamise” secular schools in Birmingham and will lead to calls for intervention. The report focuses on Park View School and its sister schools, Golden Hillock and Nansen, the only primary of the three. Inspectors found that Park View practised forced and discriminatory sex segregation and has “restricted” GCSE subjects “to comply with conservative Islamic teaching”.

Core elements of the GCSE syllabus were missed out as “un-Islamic” and an extremist preacher with known al-Qaeda sympathies and anti-Semitic views was invited to speak with children. At Golden Hillock, there was discrimination against non-Muslims, the report found. Its handful of Christian students “have to teach themselves” in one GCSE subject after the teacher “concentrated on the students who were doing the Islamic course”.

At Nansen, Year 6 children, aged 10 and 11, received no teaching at all in the arts, humanities or music.

The document, classified “official-sensitive”, describes the results of inspections of the schools last month by officials from the DfE. All three are supposedly non-faith schools run by the Park View Educational Trust.

Allegations that radical Muslims were seeking to “Islamise” secular schools in Birmingham first emerged publicly last month in a leaked letter, describing an operation purportedly named “Trojan Horse”.

The letter supposedly described how activists could stir up Muslim parents to oust secular headteachers. Park View and its chairman of governors, Tahir Alam, were named in the letter as being at the centre of the plot. Mr Alam and the school have furiously denied the claims as “fictitious”, “Islamophobic” and a “witch-hunt”.

Blot fordi man ikke forstår andre kulturers værdier bliver de ikke mindre reelle. Ikke mindre faretruende.

Muslimsk moralpoliti i London

Disse billeder, som Daily Beast viser, er fra London. Der bor også mennesker i vores samfund,  der er underlagt muslimsk kontrol. Og vi bliver stadigt flere!

An American student has been attacked by an Asian gang while out drinking beer with friends, in an area of East London where Muslim patrols have previously attempted to enforce sharia law.

Francesco Hounye, 22, who lives in Florida, was beaten savagely by the men who surrounded him, who kicked and punched him before smashing the bottle of beer into his face. Hounye was taken to hospital with deep slash wounds to his head. He has suffered permanent scarring and a chipped tooth.

The attack took place in an area where police say self-appointed “Muslim patrols” have been operating. The men have allegedly targeted gay Londoners, drinkers and women they consider to be dressed inappropriately.

Guardian fortæller en typisk vesteuropæisk historie

If there were a general election tomorrow, 35% of voting Muslims (meaning those Muslims who claim they are more likely than not to vote) would vote Labour. This compares with 22% of voting Christians and 23% of the entire voting population. By comparison, whereas 30% of the voting population would tick the Conservative box, only 13% of voting Muslims would do so.

Polling questions are liable to misinterpretation so the same question was tackled from different angles. The results concurred. Only one in 20 of those who call themselves Muslim say that they “generally” consider themselves to be Conservative compared, with 42% who consider themselves Labour (the national figures are 23% Conservative and 28% Labour). Similarly, 49% of Muslims claim they feel that the Labour party has been most friendly towards the Muslim faith over recent years, compared with 6% who think that the Conservatives have been.

The narrative appears to receive a dent when data show that a fifth of Muslims think Labour has been least friendly towards the Muslim faith over recent years. However, given that more Muslims (nearly a quarter) think the Conservatives have been the least friendly party, despite the fact they haven’t really been in a position to do anything, the dent appears illusory. In spite of everything, Labour appears to remain the natural home for British Muslims.

Fra Telegraph

The Islamic Forum of Europe (IFE) — which believes in jihad and sharia law, and wants to turn Britain and Europe into an Islamic state — has placed sympathisers in elected office and claims, correctly, to be able to achieve “mass mobilisation” of voters.

Speaking to The Sunday Telegraph, Jim Fitzpatrick, the Environment Minister, said the IFE had become, in effect, a secret party within Labour and other political parties.

“They are acting almost as an entryist organisation, placing people within the political parties, recruiting members to those political parties, trying to get individuals selected and elected so they can exercise political influence and power, whether it’s at local government level or national level,” he said.

“They are completely at odds with Labour’s programme, with our support for secularism.”

Mr Fitzpatrick, the MP for Poplar and Canning Town, said the IFE had infiltrated and “corrupted” his party in east London in the same way that the far-Left Militant Tendency did in the 1980s. Leaked Labour lists show a 110 per cent rise in party membership in one constituency in two years.

In a six-month investigation by this newspaper and Channel 4’s Dispatches, involving weeks of covert filming by the programme’s reporters:

  • IFE activists boasted to the undercover reporters that they had already “consolidated … a lot of influence and power” over Tower Hamlets, a London borough council with a £1 billion budget.
  • We have established that the group and its allies were awarded more than £10 million of taxpayers’ money, much of it from government funds designed to “prevent violent extremism”.
  • IFE leaders were recorded expressing opposition to democracy, support for sharia law or mocking black people. The IFE organised meetings with extremists, including Taliban allies, a man named by the US government as an “unindicted co-conspirator” in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, and a man under investigation by the FBI for his links to the September 11 attacks.
  • Moderate Muslims in London told how the IFE and its allies were enforcing their hardline views on the rest of the local community, curbing behaviour they deemed “un-Islamic”. The owner of a dating agency received a threatening email from an IFE activist, warning her to close it.
  • George Galloway, a London MP, admitted in recordings obtained by this newspaper that his surprise victory in the 2005 election owed more to the IFE “than it would be wise – for them – for me to say, adding that they played a “decisive role” in his triumph at the polls.

Mr Galloway now says they were one of many groups which supported his anti-war stance and had never sought to influence him.

Hvorledes gik det dog til at lige netop Labour er udsat for dette? Fra Daily Mail

Labour encouraged mass immigration even though it knew that voters opposed it, Whitehall documents confirmed yesterday.

The Government said the public disagreed with immigration because of ‘racism’ and ministers were told to try to alter public attitudes.

The thinking on immigration among Labour leaders was set down in 2000 in a document prepared for the Cabinet Office and the Home Office, but the key passages were suppressed before it was published.

The paper was finally disclosed under freedom of information rules yesterday. It showed that ministers were advised that only the ill-educated and those who had never met a migrant were opposed to immigration.

They were also told that large-scale immigration would bring increases in crime, but they concealed these concerns from the public.

Sections of the paper, which underpinned Labour policies that admitted between two and three million immigrants to Britain in less than a decade, have already been made public.

These have showed that Labour aimed to use immigration not only for economic reasons but also to change the social make-up of the country.

Fuller details released yesterday showed that Tony Blair’s ministers opened the doors to mass migration in knowledge of public opposition and with the view that those who disagreed with them were racists.

Labour’s accusation that opponents of immigration are racist has been dropped over the last two years as it has become clear that former Labour voters in party heartlands have been turning to the far right British National Party.

Ministers accept there is frustration at the loss of jobs to migrants and pressure on public services.

Yesterday Shadow Home Secretary Chris Grayling said: ‘The Government has simply not been telling the truth about its policies on immigration.

‘More and more evidence is now emerging to show that they deliberately planned a big jump in immigration for their own political purposes.

Shariadomstole vinder frem i Storbritannien

En ny rapport viser, at der findes 85 muslimske domstole i Storbritannien. Forskeren bag rapporten advarer mod tendensen.

Britiske muslimers stigende brug af shariatribunaler risikerer at underminere retssikkerheden.

Det vurderer en ny rapport fra den britiske tænketank Civitas, der vurderer, at antallet af domstole eller tribunaler, der fungerer aktivt i Storbritannien, er på 85 og dermed langt højere end først antaget.

Shariadomstolene opererer oftest i forbindelse med moskeer og giver typisk britiske muslimer religiøs vejledning i sager om eksempelvis familieproblemer, skilsmisse og uenighed i pengesager.

Det to fænomener er ikke direkte forbundne, men har alligevel samme multikulturelle rod.

BBC: Slaveri er lokalstof

Diverse, Forbrydelse og straf, Londonistan, Multikultur, islam — Sobieski on June 2, 2009 at 3:33 pm

Sagen drejer sig i alt sin hæslighed om, at en pakistansk mor i Blackburn (England) har familiesammenført tre unge kvinder fra hjemlandet, som er blevet gift med kvindens tre sønner, som forresten er fætre til de unge kvinder. (Jeg skriver “blevet gift” da der ikke er tale om en frivillig kontrakt.) Kvinderne er blevet holdt som slaver af deres svigermor i flere perioder. Den længste varede fra 1993 til 2006. Svigermoderen Bibi er nu idømt syv års fængsel for bl.a. vold og indespærring af de omtalte kvinder. Halvdelen af dommen er dog betinget. Dommeren i sagen udtalte at kvinderne tydeligvis havde været udsat for fysiske og psykiske traumer. Kort sagt så har kvinderne levet en tilværelse bestående af tæsk i et miljø af konstant frygt.
Deres arbejde har bestået i at sy tøj 13 timer dagligt. Kvinderne har udtalt at de skulle arbejde dag og nat.
BBC har ikke fundet denne nyhed værdig til forsiden, men henvist den til lokalstoffet under regionen Lancashire.

Sagen er især interessant fordi den fortæller noget om hvordan multikulturen har vævet sig ind i det britiske samfund, og hvordan den baner vejen for groteske samfundsproblemer.

BBC, fredag 29 maj:

Slavery mother-in-law divides town

On the surface Naseebah Bibi did not appear to be an out-of-the-ordinary figure.

bibi

Often seen around her home town of Blackburn, she would wear a niqab while shopping for her family.

But behind closed doors the grandmother imprisoned her three daughters-in-law and used one as her slave for 13 years.

“Slaveridømt svigermor deler byen”: Overskriften er i sig selv afslørende og uheldig, idet denne sag om groft misbrug og slaveri åbenbart ikke er tilstrækkelig grusom til at samle byen om at fordømme de unge kvinders mishandling. Frem for at give indtryk af en tragedie, får man snarere opfattelsen af, at dele af Blackburn biliger eller sympatiserer med den dømte svigermor.
At fotoet så skal forestille ikke-noget-ud-over-det-sædvanlige, viser at BBC normalitetstærskel er sunket en hel del.

But to some women she is held in awe and, instead of anger, they pity her.

They blame her incarceration on her three victims who “clearly wanted revenge against this poor lady”.

Blackburn, with a population of 105,000 - of which nearly a quarter are Muslim Asian - is greatly divided when it comes to Bibi.

She was found guilty of falsely imprisoning Nagina Akhtar between 1993 and 2006, Tazeem Akhtar from 2001 to 2003 and Nisbah Akhtar between 2005 and 2007.

One of Naseebah Bibi’s daughters-in-law recalls her treatment

The three women, who cannot speak English, were married to her three sons, who were also their first cousins.

Preston Crown Court heard that the three women would be subjected to constant beatings and abuse and were made to sit behind a sewing machine for 13 hours a day.

Some Muslim women have said she was exploited by her three daughter-in-laws who came to the UK because they thought “money grew off trees”.

Ja, grådighed er noget værre noget.

One woman said: “I feel sorry for the elderly lady [Bibi], she has not been treated well and I think it is a clear case of revenge.”

Nas, a local community worker, said: “As a first generation Asian we have experienced these things first hand and I don’t think it’s enslavement.”

Shop owner Jamil, who knows the family, said he was shocked that this could happen to “such a nice family”.

But he condemned Bibi’s abusive actions, saying: “It’s acceptable to treat women like this in other countries but not in our country, in England no, it’s not acceptable.”

En vox populi hvor af to ud af tre udtrykker uforbeholden forståelse for slaveejeren, og hvor en tredje udtrykker en geografisk differentiering af retten til ikke at blive holdt som slave; er et eklatant nederlag for den multikulturelle vision. Sagen minder om på visse punkter om mishandlingen og drabet på den jødiske mand Ilan Halimi i Paris, fordi kidnapning og indespærring af voksne mennesker er særdeles vanskeligt at holde hemmeligt, med mindre man har en Fritzl-style fangekælder. Altså, så er det sansynligt, at lokalsamfundet har været vidende om forholdet omkring de tre kvinder. Den islamiske krig mod unge kvinder fortsætter, hvad enten det er i Beirut eller i Blackburn.

Artiklen fra BBC’s lokalstof vækker på ingen måde sympati med det muslimske lokalsamfund, hvilket foranlediger undertegnede til at tro at journalisten har holdt tungen lige i munden…

Hvor slemt står det til i Sverige?

OG hvor slemt står det til i England? Fra Daily Mail

A Muslim who advised the Government following the July 7 London bombings has been arrested after an alleged stabbing.

Inayat Bunglawala, 39, was held on suspicion of attacking another man at his £300,000 home.

Mr Bunglawala, who also briefed former Security Minister Tony McNulty on the threat posed by Islamic radicals in the UK, was arrested two weeks before Christmas last year.

(…)Mr Bunglawala is one of the most prominent members of the Muslim Council of Britain, an organisation which advises the Government on extremism and counter-terrorism.

After the July 7 London bombings in 2005, he was one of seven Muslims appointed to a Home Office taskforce tackling radicalisation in the UK.

Last week, Mr Bunglawala was featured on the BBC and in many newspapers as the moderate ‘voice’ of British Islam after the Luton anti-war demonstrations.

Gad vide, hvornår disse to nationer formår at se et mønster?

Mchangama (og andre) i forsvar for Wilders ret

EU, Forbrydelse og straf, Londonistan, Multikultur, islam — Drokles on February 16, 2009 at 2:55 am

Fra Berlingske Tidende

Den britiske regering har besluttet, at den hollandske politiker Geert Wilders, ikke må rejse ind i landet, da han ifølge regeringen udgør ”en reel, umiddelbar og tilstrækkelig alvorlig trussel, der berører en grundlæggende samfundsinteresse”, hvilket i henhold til EU-reglerne om fri bevægelighed kan begrunde afvisning af EU-borgere. Wilders er inviteret til at vise sin kontroversielle Fitna film for en række britiske parlamentsmedlemmer i det engelske Parlament. Den britiske beslutning om at afvise Geert Wilders er muligvis i i strid med EU-reglerne for fri bevægelighed. Det er således svært at se, at Wilders besøg skulle udgøre en alvorlig trussel mod en samfundsmæssig interesse. Wilders holdninger er således ikke forbudt i Storbritannien og han er (heldigvis endnu) ikke dømt i sit hjemland. Under alle omstændigheder er beslutningen endnu et sørgeligt eksempel på, i hvor høj grad den nuværende britiske regering er villig til at give køb på de grundlæggende rettigheder, som man med rette kunne forvente briterne var de fremmeste til at forsvare i Europa.

Og så videre. Jeg er helt enig med Mchangama. En unavngiven læser af Jyllands-Posten kommer med denne fine pointe

Islamofobi. Ordret oversat betyder det frygt for islam, og hvem er det egentligt, der i disse dage er mest bange for islam:

Den dødstruede Geert Wilders eller den engelske regering? Wilders erklærer åbent sin frygt for ortodoks islam og opfordrer muslimerne til at rive de voldsopfordrende koranvers ud af helligteksten. Han indrømmer, han er bange, men giver ikke efter for sin frygt.

Den engelske regering derimod indrømmer på intet tidspunkt, at frygt for islam skulle ligge bag indrejseforbuddet mod Wilders. Alligevel er det lige præcis frygt, der pibler ud mellem linjerne i begrundelsen for indrejseforbuddet: Hensynet til den offentlige sikkerhed, hedder det, nødvendiggør det uhørte indgreb mod Wilders.

Kommer Wilders, opstår der usikkerhed, så vil, må man formode, visse muslimer skabe ballade. Det er altså frygt for optøjer, der ligger bag suspensionen af frihedsrettighederne. Frygt, lad os nu bare sige det ligeud, for islamiske trusler. Men lige præcis dét siger den engelske regering ikke, ikke åbent.

Og Pittelkow ridser perspektiverne op ligeledes i Jyllands-Posten

En del mennesker i Europa med muslimsk baggrund har taget oplysningsværdierne til sig. Men et betydeligt antal er præget af værdier, som er fjendtligt indstillet over for oplysningstraditionen. I tråd med dette ønsker halvdelen af danske muslimer, at bøger og film, der angriber religion, bør forbydes ved lov (Danmarks Statistik/CEPOS)

I FN forsøger de muslimske lande for tiden at få religionskritik sidestillet med racisme i forbindelse med den såkaldte Durban IIkonference.

Med udvisningen af den folkevalgte Geert Wilders alene på grund af hans synspunkter i samfundsdebatten gør den britiske regering fælles sag med frihedsfjendske muslimske kredse mod oplysningsværdierne. Hvilket svigt.

Dermed sender man et uhyggeligt signal for fremtiden: I takt med, at muslimer kommer til at udgøre en stadigt stigende andel af Europas befolkninger, vil regeringer som den britiske opgive mere og mere af oplysningstraditionen.

Frihedsværdierne i vores samfund trues således ikke alene af autoritær islam. Der finder også et afgørende værdiopgør sted inden for den europæiske verden. Dette opgør står mellem oplysningstraditionen og den politiske korrekthed.

Fronterne trækkes stadigt hårdere op og udviklingen går kun en vej. På et tidspunkt vil et af de europæiske lande opleve en “social” uro, der i intensistet vil opleves af alle, som en borgerkrig. Væk vil være de lyksalige blår i øjnene, væk vil være bortforklaringer og fornægtelse og den opfattelse af udviklingens uvirkelighed, der får de fleste til at mistro, hvad de allerede godt ved. Det afgørende bliver i den situation, hvor afgørelsens time står klart for alle, hvad man konkluderer. Skal staten indskrænke den frie tanke yderligere eller skal vi tage opgøret med fascismen, mens vi stdig står stærkt. Her står Danmark stærkt da vi før alle andre europæiske lande har udviklet et sprog for islamkritik og national hævdelseer accepteret af flertallet og som i sin klare logik og uafviselige præmissesæt tilbageviser de stadigt mere desperate beskyldninger.

Det er historien om de to biologer, der under en udflugt i skoven støder på en stor bjørn. Den ene udbryder, at det nu er ude med dem, men den anden svarer triumferende at han har sine bedste løbesko på. Da den første indvender at Bjørnens løbehastighed så langt overgår mennesket, selv med “sine bedste løbesko på”, svarer den; Jeg skal ikke løbe fra bjørnen, jeg skal bare løbe fra dig! Det første europæiske lande, der bryder sammen vil samtidig give alle andre lande muligheden for det klare valg.

England i rivende udvikling II

Forbrydelse og straf, Historie, Londonistan, Multikultur, islam — Drokles on February 13, 2009 at 5:57 am

I dag er det 20 år siden at den engelske forfatter Salman Rushie fik udstedt en fatwa for bogen De Sataniske Vers. Fra Berlingske Tidende

Fatwaen kom som et chok, men det ville være en overdrivelse at sige, at den kom som et lyn fra en klar himmel. »De sataniske vers« var blevet udgivet året før, og i flere måneder havde der været ballade. Britiske muslimer havde krævet bogen trukket tilbage. Den var blevet forbudt i Indien, Bangladesh, Sudan og Sydafrika. Senere fulgte Sri Lanka, Kenya, Thailand, Tanzania, Indonesien, Singapore og Venezuela. Umiddelbart før fatwaen havde der været voldelige optøjer i Pakistan. Ingen kunne være i tvivl om, at nogen følte sig krænket. »De sataniske vers« var blevet et hadeobjekt.

Men det er selve fatwaen, der huskes, og ikke kun på grund af de store omkostninger, den fik for hovedpersonen selv. At en europæisk statsborger blev dødsdømt in absentia af en fremmed magt var simpelthen uhørt. Dengang. Siden har meget ændret sig, også hvad den frie tanke angår. Og ikke nødvendigvis til det bedre.

»Forsøgene på at begrænse ytringsfriheden er blevet en global bevægelse,« siger Morgenavisen Jyllands-Postens kulturredaktør, Flemming Rose. Som medansvarlig for samme dagblads Muhammed-tegninger var – og er – han en central skikkelse i det, som mange anser for at være en helt central kamp for ytringsfrihed.

»I Holland har regeringen for nylig fremsat forslag om at kriminalisere endnu flere ytringer, der kan opfattes som krænkende. I Norge har Senterpartiet så sent som i sidste uge foreslået noget lignende, dog uden at komme igennem med forslaget. Muslimske grupper i Europa forsøger at bruge nationale lovgivninger, der kriminaliserer holocaust-benægtelse, som argument for, at så må vi også have love, der forbyder krænkelser af profeten.«

(…)

Der er mange forklaringer på, hvad det var, der krænkede så mange så dybt. Til gengæld er det hævet over diskussion, at langt fra alle de, der havde mulighed for at ytre sig til forsvar for friheden, benyttede sig af denne ret. I Storbritannien var der muslimske ledere, der hyldede Khomeinis beslutning om at dødsdømme en af deres egne landsmænd. Organisationen Union of Islamic Students’ Associations in Europe udsendte en støtteerklæring til Khomeini. Lederen af Muslim Parlament – et forum for britiske muslimer – Dr. Kalim Siddiqui, bakkede op om fatwaen, men tilføjede, at britiske muslimer skulle overholde britisk lov og overlade det retfærdige mord til andre. Den tidligere amerikanske præsident Jimmy Carter sagde vredt, at »De sataniske vers« var en direkte fornærmelse af millioner af muslimer. Forfatteren John le Carré opfordrede Salman Rushdie til at trække bogen tilbage – indtil videre. I Tyskland – Europas største bogmarked – var der intet forlag, der vovede at lægge navn til en udgivelse. I stedet dannedes et fælles forlag, hvis eneste formål var at udgive »De sataniske vers.«

Fra BBC

A Dutch MP who called the Koran a “fascist book” has been sent back to the Netherlands after attempting to defy a ban on entering the UK.

Freedom Party MP Geert Wilders had been invited to show his controversial film - which links the Islamic holy book to terrorism - in the UK’s House of Lords.

But Mr Wilders, who faces trial in his own country for inciting hatred, has been denied entry by the Home Office.

He told the BBC it was a “very sad day” for UK democracy.

The Dutch ambassador was also at Heathrow to make clear his government’s opposition to the ban on Mr Wilders entering the UK.

(…)

Cabinet Office minister Liam Byrne said, on BBC One’s Question Time: “This guy wasn’t coming here to exercise his right of free speech. This guy was trying to come here in order to sow division between us in this country.

“Everything I’ve heard about this guy tells me he’s a bigot and the right place for him is to stay at home.”

(…)

“The government opposes extremism in all forms,” it said in a statement, adding that it had tightened up rules on excluding those engaging in “unacceptable behaviour” in October.

The home secretary has the power to stop people entering the UK if she believes there is a threat to national security, public order or the safety of UK citizens, but she cannot exclude people simply because of their views.

(…)

Labour peer Lord Ahmed, who expressed his concerns to the parliamentary authorities about Mr Wilders’ visit, told the BBC: “This man doesn’t have any respect for law. He’s doing this for publicity and he’s seeking that and getting that.”

He added: “If this man was allowed into this country it would certainly cause problems within communities around Britain.”

The Muslim Council of Britain said Mr Wilders was “an open and relentless preacher of hate”.

Bekymringen er altså den uro Wilders vil foranledige i det åbenbart allerede højspændte forhold mellem grupperne i England. Daily Mail kommer med en lille håndfuld meget forskellige eksempler på, hvad der ikke regnes for “…a threat to national security, public order or the safety of UK citizens” eller  ”unacceptable behaviour”

Moussawi is alleged to have said that Jews are ‘a lesion on the forehead of history’.

Jeg er ikke overrasket og derfor har jeg heller ikke noget at sige. Når man har fulgt udviklingen er dette et logisk skridt og jeg vil overlade det til Jyllands-Posten at udtrykke min holdning

Storbritannien har med sin afvisning af den hollandske politiker Geert Wilders markeret endnu et lavpunkt i de vestlige demokratiers ynkelige knæfald for de kræfter, som i religionens navn erstatter argumenter med vold, hærværk og trusler.

Det er bogstaveligt taget pinligt ud over alle grænser.

Fra Telegraph

The woman has been banned by her local council for failing to prevent the teenager from getting baptised, even though the girl was 16 and made up her own mind to change religion.

The carer, a churchgoer in her 50s who has fostered more than 80 children, has now been forced to move out of her home.

She has lost the farmhouse she rented to look after vulnerable teenagers, due to the loss of income.

Another girl she was looking after has been taken back into care.

(….)

The girl, who is now 17, was taken into care after being assaulted by a family member, saw baptism “as a washing away of the horrible things she had been through and a symbol of a new start,” the woman said.

(…)

Apostasy – the repudiation of one’s faith – is strongly condemned in the Koran and is considered taboo in Muslim communities.

Officials advised the teenager to reconsider her decision and stop attending Christian meetings, and in November struck the carer off their register, claiming she breached her duty of care as a foster parent.

“They consider that in some way she should have taken steps to prevent the conversion,” said solicitor Nigel Priestley, who is representing the carer.

Forslaget bliver nu sendt videre til House of Bishops, der er en samling af biskopper.

Wilders

Antisemitisme, EU, Israel, Londonistan, Multikultur, islam, venstrefløjen — Drokles on February 10, 2009 at 11:54 pm

Poul Weston perspektiverer sagen mod Wilders i International Free Press Society og jeg vil fremhæve følgende fremragende pointer

The second likely charge Mr Wilders will face is that of the positively Orwellian sounding “insult of a group of people because of their race, their religion or belief, or their hetero- or homosexual nature or their physical, mental, or intellectual disabilities.” Which is a contravention of the Dutch Penal Code, Article 137c.

No doubt this fantastical piece of legislation was partially designed to clamp down on comparisons between Islam and the Nazis, which Mr Wilders does when he encourages people to read and compare the Koran and Mein Kampf, after which they may draw their own conclusions as to the humanitarian philosophies of the respective authors.

This may also turn out be something of an embarrassment for the embattled prosecution. After all, who or what am I describing here?

“My ideology believes in world domination. My ideology wishes to eradicate the Jews. My ideology believes the three mainstays for women are children, the local religious establishment and the kitchen. My ideology believes in organised violence and fear to advance our agenda. My leader is a prophet and his followers work on the Fuhrerprinzip. If you disagree I will kill you, along with the homosexuals.”

Quite.

(…)

What the Dutch authorities (in cahoots with EU authorities) are doing is ensuring the selective ending of free speech. I say selective, because under existing criminal legislation most Mosques throughout Europe should need a conveyor belt to shuttle the new imams through the front door as the manacled ex-imams, convicted not only of sedition but also the incitement of hatred against Jews, Christians, women and homosexuals, are shuttled out through the back.

This is not the case, of course. As the EU so delicately puts it, some are more equal than others:

“Insults, slander, defamation and contempt” are sub category crimes against the open category crime of “offences against personal liberty, dignity and other protected interests, including racism and xenophobia.”

Islam, by dint of being a minority religion is a protected interest, whilst Mr Wilders, despite being one in a million, is the majority of one, and therefore an unprotected interest. In his own country. Dear God, what has the liberal/left come to?

Hver gang man lærer noget nyt om EU bliver man endnu mere bange. Desværre er det blot en afspejling af en generel europæisk virkelighed, som kommenterer i Jerusalem Post fra den tyske virkelighed

Recent events demonstrate the relationship of German political culture today to anti-Semitism.

On the one hand, one is not allowed to deny the Holocaust, as Catholic Bishop Richard Williamson found out. Chancellor Angela Merkel herself told the German pope in the Vatican that such an anti-Semite, member of the reactionary Pius X Brotherhood, could not be tolerated.

Just a few days later, Iranian government spokesman Gholam Hossein Elham called the Holocaust “a big lie to settle a rootless regime in the heart of the Islamic world.” That weekend, moreover, Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani was invited to join the International Security Conference in Munich, where he said on Friday there were “different views of the Holocaust. I will say: It did not happen.”

Was there any outrage in the case of the Iranians as there was in that of Bishop Williamson? German journalist Malte Lehming of the daily Tagesspiegel explained that Holocaust denial and genocidal hatred is not allowed if it derives from the Western world, like British Williamson. If Muslims do the same thing, nothing happens. This hypocrisy paradigm applies particularly - but not only - to today’s Germany.

If Arabs, other Muslims and their German friends scream “Death to the Jews,” or “Israel - children killer”, that’s fine. If two lonely guys stick an Israeli flag in a bedroom window on a street where such anti-Semites pass, the police react immediately and confiscate the flag. That’s what happened in the city of Duisburg on January 10. In an interview with the Ruhr-Nachrichten newspaper, the head of the Verfassungsschutz (protection of the constitution) in the German Federal Land North Rhine-Westphalia, Hartmut Möller, accused a group of so-called “anti-Germans” of being a dangerous element, “extremists”. Those particular anti-Germans are otherwise known as friends of Israel and the US.

Og om England, der engang nedkæmpede nazismen kan man på Sappho læse

Her til morgen, tirsdag, meddelte Lord Malcolm Pearson, et medlem af det britiske Overhus, at han havde inviteret det hollandske parlamentsmedlem Geert Wilders til at vise sin film Fitna i et konferencelokale i tilknytning til Overhuset. Fremvisningen skulle finde sted torsdag den 12. februar kl. 16. Planen var, at Wilders skulle tale ved et privat arrangement for medlemmer af det britiske parlament bl.a. for at fortælle om sine bevæggrunde til at lave den omstridte, Koran-kritiske film.

Imidlertid modtog Geert Wilders senere på tirsdagen et brev fra den britiske ambassadør i Holland, hvori det blev meddelt, at Wilders er “persona non grata” – altså uønsket – i Storbritannien, fordi han udgør en fare for den offentlige sikkerhed og den samfundsmæssige harmoni grundet den opstandelse, som hans film har fremkaldt.

(…)

Mødet mellem Wilders og de britiske parlamentarikere skulle oprindeligt have fundet sted den 29. januar, men blev udsat, efter at det muslimske overhusmedlem Lord Nazir Ahmed havde truet med at mobilisere 10.000 muslimer for at forhindre mødet. Senere pralede Lord Ahmed i den pakistanske presse med, at det aflyste møde var “en sejr for det muslimske samfund”. 

Udviklingen er uholdbar.

Det store multikulturelle forbillede, som vi kan lære meget af, hvad angår tolerence og sameksistens diskuterer også de storpolitiske begivenheder i Mellemøsten - hver kultur med sin debattradition. Fra Kristeligt Dagblad

Vreden over den israelske militæroffensiv i Gazastriben har nået et kritisk punkt og risikerer at styrke de mest yderliggående grupper, lyder det i et brev, som muslimske ledere i Storbritannien har sendt til premierminister Gordon Brown.

Den israelske regerings “uforholdsmæssige magtanvendelse” har “givet nyt liv til yderliggående grupper og styrket deres budskab om vold og evig konflikt”, lyder det i brevet, der blandt andet er underskrevet af imamen i al-Tawhid moskéen i London, Usama Hasan, og lederen af Islamic Foundation, Dilwar Hussain.

- Vi risikerer, at muslimer i Storbritannien og udlandet mister troen på den politiske proces, skriver de.

Det er er ved at koge op i de muslimske miljøer, der ikke møder nok eftergivenhed. Ikke at få sin vilje kan få alle til at miste troen på den politiske process for hvad er demokrati værd, hvis det ikke er en konstant afspejling af ens ønsker uden at skulle tage hensyn til opposition? Og muslimerne er da også begyndte at argumentere for deres sag på deres egen karakteristiske måde, der har gjort islam til en elsket og eftertragtet magtfaktor i det meste af verden. Fra Telegraph

A report by the Community Security Trust, which gives safety advice to British Jews, said there had been 24 incidents since December 29, including an arson attack on a synagogue in London.

Mark Gardner, a spokesman for the group, said: “There has been a significant rise in the number of anti-Semitic incidents, especially when compared with what is usually a very quiet time of year for racist, anti-Jewish attacks.

“It is a pattern with which we and the police are now sadly familiar, whereby hysteria is whipped up against Israel, and British Jews then suffer a wave of anti-Semitism,” he told Sky News.

The synagogue, in Brondesbury, north west London, was attacked by arsonists who attempted to smash a window.

Hamassholes all over Europe

Diverse, Globalisering, Londonistan, venstrefløjen — Sobieski on January 4, 2009 at 1:28 pm

Israel-Palæstina konflikten er i sandhed blevet endnu mere paneuropæisk efter at IDF har krydset grænsen til Gaza. Diverse kraftidioter fra venstrefløjen tørner ud med samme forudsigelighed, som muslimerne bliver krænkede over… hvad som helst i virkeligheden.

Fra AFP:

LONDON (AFP) — Thousands of people across Europe demonstrated against Israel’s airstrikes on Gaza Saturday, calling for an immediate halt to the military offensive even as Israeli troops entered the Palestinian region.

The biggest rallies were in Paris, where police estimated 21,000 demonstrators took to the streets, and in London, where they put the number at 10,000.

Thousands of people also voiced their opposition to Israel’s military action in rallies in Madrid, Amsterdam, Stockholm and Athens along with other European cities.

In London, many demonstrators carried Palestinian flags and chanted “Free, free Palestine” and “Israel terrorists” as they filed along the River Thames before gathering in Trafalgar Square, an AFP reporter saw.

The London march, which organisers Stop the War Coalition claimed had attracted 50,000 people, was led by singer Annie Lennox and veteran left-wing politician Tony Benn.

Former Eurythmics star Lennox said the approach of both the Palestinians and Israelis was “wrong” and a total ceasefire was the only option.

“For every one person killed in Gaza, they are creating 100 suicide bombers. It’s not just about Gaza, it’s about all of us,” she told the BBC.

Især den sidste bemærkning er interessant. Det er et synspunkt der godt kunne foldes lidt mere ud. Forventer hun yderligere terrorbomber i London?

In Paris, where organisers claimed 25,000 turned out for a march led by Communist and left-wing politicians, the crowd chanted “We are all Palestinians” and “Israel killers.” Many sported traditional Palestinian scarves.

As the protesters dispersed, between 200 and 300 tried to make their way toward the Israeli embassy near the Champs Elysees but were blocked by police barricades. Several cars were set alight as well as Israeli flags, an AFP correspondent reported.

Several cars were also torched or overturned and windows smashed in the city’s midtown shopping district, but calm appeared to return as of early evening, according to an AFP journalist.

Thousands of people also demonstrated in the French cities of Marseille, Lyon, Nice and Mulhouse, with organisers and police again offering vastly different turnout numbers.

Frankrig har et problem der minder om et overlæsset godstog, i for høj fart, og uden bremser. Bon voyage.
