Gilbert & George: 'The rightwing press may be unpleasant but they're polite'

The Guardian World news: Islam - 4 hours 51 min ago

As a mammoth retrospective of the London duo’s 45-year career opens at Mona in Tasmania, the partners in art and life reflect on mullahs, vicars, homophobic journalists and the sure-fire way to spot a leftie

My meeting with Gilbert & George kicks off with a confession. I had a very strong reaction to their art.

“It was noticeable,” George says, with a wry smile. “You went up in smoke.”

Sydney Muslims feel at home despite very high racism exposure, survey finds

The Guardian World news: Islam - 4 hours 54 min ago

Survey of 600 Muslims finds they are three to five times more likely to experience extreme levels of bigotry compared with other Australians

Muslims in Sydney are three to five times more likely to experience “very high rates of exposure to racism” compared with Australians in general, a study shows.

But about 97% of the nearly 600 Muslims surveyed said relations between them and non-Muslims were friendly and that they felt “a very strong sense of belonging”, the report’s key author, professor Kevin Dunn, said.

Liberal backbencher Craig Kelly responds to motion, put by LNP backbencher George Christensen, calling for action against radical Islam

The “tyranny of political correctness” is preventing a frank conversation about the role of Islam in extremism, Liberal backbencher Craig Kelly has said, as conservative members of the Coalition strengthen their rhetoric on anti-radicalisation.

Kelly was speaking to a motion put by LNP backbencher George Christensen, which called for action against radical Islam in Australia.

Sam Harris: I’d vote for Ben Carson over Noam Chomsky “Every Time”

Loon Watch - 29 November, 2015 - 21:07

Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, neuroscientist Sam Harris

Cenk Uygur, of the Young Turks has described fellow atheist Sam Harris as “Scam Harris” in light of Harris’ comments that he would, given the choice between Noam Chomsky and Ben Carson, “vote for Ben Carson every time.”

Harris’ comments are part of a pattern of support for extremist right-wing politicians. In the past he’s spoken favorably of European fascists, stating they are “the people who speak most sensibly about the threat that Islam poses to Europeans.”

By Tom Boggioni, RawStory

During a discussion on whether the U.S. should allow Syrian refugees into the county, neuroscientist and atheism advocate Sam Harris continued his personal jihad with author Noam Chomsky while finding common cause with Christian conservative GOP presidential candidates who want to keep the refugees out.

In his podcast interview with author Douglas Murray, Harris lamented the “demagoguery on both sides” by the political parties, while accusing President Barack Obama of being “politically stupid” in the way he addresses the threat of Islamic fanaticism. Harris did have  kind words for Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz, despite admitting that he is a “religious maniac.’

“The Republicans are right to be completely outraged by this — and they’re completely crazy,” Harris explained.”This is a terrible situation to be in politically.”

“Take the personalities of the people on the right out of the equation. Is it crazy to express, as Ted Cruz did, a preference for Christians over Muslims in this process?” Harris asked. “Of course not. What percentage of Christians will be jihadists or want to live under Sharia law? Zero. And this is a massive, in fact the only, concern when talking about security. We know that some percentage of Muslims will be jihadists inevitably… So it is not mere bigotry or mere xenophobia to express that preference. I hope you understand that I am expressing no sympathy at all with Ted Cruz’s politics or with Ted Cruz. But it is totally unhelpful to treat him — though he actually is a religious maniac — like a bigot on this point. This is a quite reasonable concern to voice.”

It was toward the end of the broadcast that Harris had to take a shot at author Chomsky with whom he has had a running battle over ideology and political worldviews.

“Given a choice between Noam Chomsky and Ben Carson, in terms of the totality of their understanding of what’s happening now in the world, I’d vote for Ben Carson every time,” Harris stated. “Ben Carson is a dangerously deluded religious imbecile, Ben Carson does not…the fact that he is a candidate for president is a scandal…but at the very least he can be counted on to sort of get this one right. He understands that jihadists are the enemy.”

Sympathy for Tania Clarence shows disablist attitudes

Indigo Jo Blogs - 29 November, 2015 - 13:05

A picture of a three-storey yellow- and red-brick house, with flowers and teddy bears left in the driveway to the frontIn April 2014, Tania Clarence smothered three of her four children, Olivia, Ben and Max, all of whom had spinal muscular atrophy type 2 (SMA2), at the family home in New Malden (see earlier entry). At trial, she pled guilty to manslaughter due to diminished responsibility and received a hospital order (which means indefinite detention in a psychiatric institution). In March 2015, newspapers were reporting that Clarence had started receiving home leave. This past week, the Kingston and Richmond Safeguarding Children Board published the results of its Serious Case Review (SCA), in which the family was anonymised (exactly why is not clear, given that all of the family’s names, including the surviving daughter’s, are in the public domain), which reveals among other things the mother’s continual failure to co-operate with medical interventions that could have guaranteed the children a longer and healthier life.

The report also alluded to difficulties the couple had relating to medical and social work staff because of their cultural background (they are from South Africa) and class. This prompted an article by Ian Birrell in the Daily Mail, who suggested that the Clarences were “a devoted couple who weren’t trusted to judge what was best for their children with disastrous consequences” and who were “scorned as pushy middle-class parents after rejecting advice from the professionals, leading to a breakdown in their relationship with them”. It’s a quite astonishing piece of self-victimisation, although pretty typical for the Daily Mail, which (like the Telegraph) never shies away from criticising social workers when they interfere in middle-class family life, rather than that of the lower orders.

Reading the SCR report (PDF), I was reminded of another recent case in which a woman had a disabled baby placed with her with a view to adoption and then made plainly bad decisions about her medical care, declining routine checks and monitoring, refusing recommended pain medication and trying to obtain sedation despite it being dangerous, administered oxygen without training and discharged her from hospital against medical advice. Ultimately, the child was returned to foster care and a judge ruled that the would-be adopter “presented a real and serious risk” to the child and “it would not be safe to place a child or vulnerable adult in her care”. When I read of this case, I recognised the woman as someone I used to follow on Twitter. She has told friends that the child died and has “bereaved” on her Twitter profile (one of the many lies she has told, including about me). But removing Tania Clarence’s children despite her persistent obstruction of attempts to guarantee their health was not so easy, because they were her natural children and keeping them together in foster care would have been nigh-on impossible and because doctors, naturally, did not imagine that she had murder in mind.

One of the issues which caused conflict was the family’s (in particular, the mother’s) refusal to allow Olivia, the older girl with SMA, to have a gastrostomy. Birrell agreed with them as he faced pressure to have his disabled daughter fitted with one:

We felt that food was one of her pleasures, as well as a form of communication allowing us to interpret her moods.

Watching her eat chocolate cake with enthusiasm today, I am glad we stuck to our guns. Just as we did when we refused to allow another doctor to place her on a complicated high-fat diet to prove a pet theory on diet and epilepsy.

Of course, it’s wrong to deny a disabled person the pleasure of eating by fitting them with a feeding tube for their carers’ convenience. But a stomach tube doesn’t stop anyone eating by mouth; what it does is allow them to actually be nourished so that they have more energy for other things, which may include eating pleasurable foods like chocolate cake. But the report also reveals that the family refused assistive devices because they clashed with the decor, and refused interventions that would have improved the children’s health because they wanted to give them a “good quality of life” rather than merely prolong it. They were still, clearly, working on the basis that the children were terminally ill and had not faced up to the fact that the children could live long and productive lives, and that they were in it for the long haul as well as the children. It is significant that Tania killed the children after her husband (who the couple agreed would deal with the doctors as regarded major decisions like this) agreed to the gastrostomy and to spinal surgery which was necessary to check their scoliosis.

The doctors knew that SMA type 2 is not a condition that is typically fatal in infancy and that there was no reason for the children to die young, or to be sentenced to a lifetime of severe pain and respiratory problems, just because of their parents’ hard-set ideas or because they did not want to be parents of disabled children. People with SMA are not intellectually impaired and have been known to get degrees and work in skilled and responsible jobs. It is not autism where severe challenging behaviour is often exhibited and the parents could be injured, particularly as the child grows. There are many people who complain that parents of disabled children have to deal with huge numbers of doctors, therapists, social workers, bureaucrats and so on, much as do disabled people themselves, usually to secure care, treatment or assistive equipment such as wheelchairs for themselves or their disabled relatives so they can enjoy a full life, or enjoy their right to family life free of the constraints (or abuse) of institutional life. In this case the criticism is misplaced as the professionals were trying to keep the children alive while their parents appeared intent on letting them die. Kingston, by the way, is the home of Baroness Jane Campbell. The staff would have had experience of SMA type 2.

The complaint that professionals could not deal with them because they were seen as pushy or middle class was a common one (repeated, for example, by another parent in today’s Telegraph, whose children do not have SMA). What the report actually says is that professionals were cowed by their wealth and status and were not as aggressive in protecting the children’s interests from their parents because of that. If everyone is so biased against the white middle classes, why did this woman get such favourable treatment from the ‘justice’ and mental health systems after she killed her children? It’s preposterous. I suspect that if she had been a shouty, inarticulate woman from a council estate with a fake tan, she would be doing a triple life sentence now for murder. It was a miscarriage of justice and a dereliction of duty for the prosecution to accept a plea of diminshed responsibility and not to allow the claim to be tested in open court; it reflects a disdain for the value of the children’s lives and an excessive sympathy for an articulate, well-to-do white woman and, perhaps, a fear of negative publicity from precisely the quarters that are now crying “poor Tania”. Usually a person convicted of manslaughter through diminished responsibility and sentenced to a hospital order stays there for years, sometimes longer than if they had been convicted of murder. Tania Clarence got home leave less than six months into her sentence and less than a year after the crimes; if her ‘mental illness’ cleared up after such a short time, it is possible that it was not so severe as to constitute diminished responsibility in the first place. It is possible to be mentally ill and still culpable.

I’m not a parent, but I know many parents of disabled children and adults and I’m well aware that the role is stressful. However, there are whole forums where that issue can be discussed. In a case like this, where the facts reveal that the perpetrator’s attitude towards their children’s disability and life expectancy may have been as much a factor as stress, if not more so, it is not appropriate to empathise with the perpetrator and not with the victims, who were tiny and defenceless children. The rush to sympathise with the parent that we always see in such cases shows how little value society places on the lives of disabled people, even children; that they are worth less than a parent’s right to a stress-free life or never to feel harassed by doctors or officialdom. There should be an inquiry into the absurdly lenient treatment of Tania Clarence, and the staff at Kingston and Great Ormond Street hospitals that fought valiantly to guarantee Olivia’s, Ben’s and Max’s life and health should be praised, not dismissed as ignorant, interfering busybodies.

(I tried searching for pictures of the children to illustrate this entry. The only one I could find was of the two boys with their father. There seems to be none of Olivia anywhere.)

The Need For Maturity On Matters Of Disagreement.

Islamicate - 28 November, 2015 - 20:28

It is fair to say that it is near enough impossible for two individuals to agree on absolutely everything. Disagreements will always exists, and in many respects that it is something that we ought to celebrate; disagreement leads to debate, which not only fulfills the intellectual needs of human beings, but it is through the process of debate and discussion that common ground can be established and solutions can be articulated. On the other hand, disagreements can also have negative consequences, and rather than bring individuals together for a meaningful discussion to air out differences, they can draw individuals further apart and lead to animosity.

How we approach disagreements between one another naturally stems from our mindset; if we view them through the lens of maturity, then it follows that a discussion on our differences is likely to be a fruitful exercise in which both parties are likely to leave the discussion open to variant possibilities. Conversely if one adopts an immature approach, then impudence prevails providing fertile ground for ignorance to establish its roots.

As faithful Muslims living in Britain, we have been inadequate in our approach to dealing with differences of opinion within the Muslim community. In some respects this is rather surprising since many of us are frequently reminded by those more learned about the differences of opinion that existed amongst classical scholars on matters of theology and Islamic jurisprudence. And whilst in many instances scholars might have differed quite strongly with one another, providing no obviously heretical views were being espoused, scholars would debate matters with one another, which in many instances catalysed the cause of intellectual endeavour within the faith. For all the differences they might have had, there was a mutual respect that existed between them; after all, they were all batting for the same team.

Yet despite often being reminded about the approach that classical Muslim scholars took to disagreements we find that Muslims today don’t reflect upon the example of the learned and continue to pursue an immature approach. This proves the sentiment that we ‘love’ scholars to be mere lip service. If we truly loved them, we would learn from their approach to religion, their demeanour as the righteous, and the maturity they had in their interactions with one another.

Over the last decade or so, we have progressed little on this front; in fact perhaps the only thing that has differed is the nature of our disagreements. In the late 90s and early 2000s, our disagreements largely centred around meaningless discussions on the minutiae of Islamic theology. Lay Muslims would have heated discussions about the nature of God, His attributes, and how He ought to be worshipped. Anybody who disagreed with certain groups was fervently labeled an ‘innovator’ at best, otherwise excommunicated from the faith altogether. Websites such as and had become authorities for some, as lay Muslims would visit such sites to arm themselves with the arguments they needed to shoot down others at their local mosque, and later, on internet forums. In its worst form, we saw the emergence of khariji mentality, where even those who had slight differences in the way they performed their prayers were deemed to be ‘out of the fold’.

Things have since changed. Those websites have now become pretty much obsolete, and the message seems to have reached the masses that deep discussions on Islamic theology and jurisprudence, whilst important, are best left to those who have the intellectual capability to undertake such discussions. Moreover, for the laity to be engaging in such matters, which in reality were of little consequence, carried little benefit and caused further rifts within the faith community.

One would have hoped that such realisation would have resulted in bringing the faith community together, but it seems those lessons are yet to be learned. With the war on terror, the rise in Islamophobia and the muscular approach of successive governments towards Muslims, the laity has moved from arguing on matters of theology onto political responses and positions. Whereas once Muslims would have argued about what the ‘Hand of God’ actually signifies, today Muslims argue vehemently about ‘Prevent’ and other aspects of Counter-extremism.

However, once again, it seems there is little room for disagreement when discussing such matters. A particular group seems to be emerging once again positing that anyone who disagrees with their approach or tries to initiate discussions on matters taking place within the Muslim community is a ‘ self-hating house Muslim’ or a ‘Quilliamite’. In many respects the circumstances around excommunication has changed; whereas once people would have called those that disagreed with them as ‘out of the fold’, today they are labeled as being ‘sell-outs’. It seems that some members of the Muslim community have transposed their traits of kharijism away from the theological realm and into the political one.

It is vital that we recognise this problem, which will ultimately fragment us further as a faith community. Whilst it is clearly apparent that there are certain voices in the public realm that have an agenda against Muslims in Britain, to label anyone that disagrees with a particular viewpoint as being from amongst those lot can have very damaging consequences. In this regard, we must start showing the love we had for our traditional scholars by embodying their approach to disagreement. We must move away from the vile arguments and name calling that is currently taking place on internet forums and social media, and come to having face to face dialogue with those Muslims who may see things differently in matters of politics, to understand their perspective and work towards architecting well-informed solutions to the issues we face. After all, we claim to be batting for the same team.

Why Republican frontrunners get away with harsh anti-Muslim rhetoric

Some leading Republican presidential candidates seem to view Muslims as fair game for increasingly harsh words that they might use with more caution against any other group, for fear of the political cost. So far, such strategy is winning support from conservatives influential in picking the nominee.

Review: Britain’s ISIS Supporters

Indigo Jo Blogs - 27 November, 2015 - 18:35

Poppy Begum and her friend 'Aisha', wearing a long black coat and face veil, in a London cafe at nightISIS: The British Women Supporters Unveiled from Channel 4 (available for 26 days as of this writing)

On Monday night Channel 4 broadcast what purported to be an investigation into a group of British Muslim women who supported ISIS and who ran stalls and study circles around London, as well as using social media (principally Twitter) to raise support for ISIS. What it actually found was nothing the women’s section of the remnants of al-Muhajiroun, a dwindling and banned group known for disruptive and provocative rallies and posters. They added some interviews with Sara Khan of Inspire, a woman from the Henry Jackson society (a neo-conservative think tank) and Crown prosecutor Nazir Afzal, as well as footage of the Paris terrorist attacks, all of which, along with the suggestive voiceovers about the sinister implications of what the subjects were saying, seemed intended to make the findings look scarier than they actually were.

The programme opens with library footage of the Paris attacks, followed by tweets posted by various ISIS sympathisers (it didn’t say where) praising the attacks. The ‘investigator’, one Poppy Begum, interviewed Sara Khan of Inspire, who claimed that Muslim communities had not woken up to the dangers of “non-violent interpretations” of Islam that promote an “us versus them narrative”. The programme gives no evidence that this particular group are using mosques or any other facilities owned by the “Muslim community”; rather they use the street or hired community halls, and all research shows that ISIS supporters in the west are not recruited in mosques. Begum then reads out some tweets she was receiving when she opened an account and pretended to be an extremist. They came from three women, all using Arabic “Umm” nicknames (meaning mother of so-and-so) and all followers of a ‘hate preacher’ she said the programme could not name for legal reasons, although I suspect most people who know about al-Muhajiroun knew who she meant. The tweets were mostly remarks supportive of ISIS and their claim to be the Khilafah or Islamic State, using a few of their slogans such as “die in your rage”, a taunt frequently seen in their videos and social media postings. The nearest thing to practical support for ISIS that appeared in the programme was the suggestion that she “start saving for a plane ticket and don’t tell anyone” and use her mother’s bank card; hardly in-depth practical advice on how to reach ISIS territory and what to bring, etc.

Poppy doesn’t do the undercover work herself; she gets an anonymous friend, known only as Aisha and wearing the full veil, to do that. Aisha meets one of her new Twitter pals on a stall in Lewisham (which Poppy calls “east London”, a term that refers to the area north of the Thames, when Lewisham is to the south). One of the three “mothers” invites her to a ‘secret’ study circle which is held in a community centre (which looks like a converted church or chapel) in Walthamstow. Poppy makes much of the ‘secrecy’ but if it was that secret, it would have been held in a more private venue. The ‘circle’ itself consisted of pretty much the same lecture each time from one of the leaders about how non-Muslims conspired against and oppress Muslims and are plotting to destroy the ‘Islamic State’. Again, no evidence of any material support, fundraising or advice on how to join it. They were just pep talks for extremists and the audience consisted of no more than ten adults, if that, each time.

Two women, both in full black robes and veils, standing in a food stop with a small girl in between them. One of the women is holding an assault rifle. The shelves are full of bottles of cooking oil.After Aisha attended two of these talks, Umm L pulled her aside and asked to search her bag, explaining that they did not know her and they had had people spying on them and recording things in the past. Aisha then turned on the waterworks and begged to be let go, which Umm L initially refused to but then expelled her from the venue, calling her a spy (which, of course, she was). Shortly afterwards, her account was deleted and Poppy told us that shortly afterwards, ISIS attacked Paris, as if there was any connection between the two. I thought her performance was pathetic; she’d certainly never make it onto Rogue Traders where old ladies are sometimes employed to trap persistent, burly male crooks. The woman wasn’t armed and her crying made her look guilty; if a simple bag search would have turned up the recording device, the investigation was a pretty amateur affair.

Poppy Begum claimed that “Aisha” worked undercover for a year. They do not have much to show for it. This looks like an investigation that was meant to find a lot more than it did. It looked like they intended to find a cell of women dedicated to supporting or channelling funds, resources or people to ISIS. What it found was a small group of women who meet in study circles to express extreme views about the West and Islam — the same ones they have been sharing amongst themselves for years. I am not a huge fan of al-Muhajiroun, but this programme vastly overstates their threat; their influence has been dwindling for years and they are distrusted by other Muslim activists whose demonstrations they have disrupted on quite a few occasions. The programme purported to give some background details about two of the three women, but this only consisted of the fact that one was a careers advisor and another was married to a prominent male member of the group. There’s a surprise. They did not speak to anyone who is actually in ISIS territory or reveal any close connections between these women and anyone over there. Perhaps they expected to carry on the investigation a bit longer but Channel 4 decided the programme had to go out quickly because of the Paris attacks. The result was one of the shallowest pieces of ‘investigative journalism’ I have ever seen, revealing absolutely nothing of substance.

Producing a university essay can be a challenging and time-eating process. This might be really worth a portion of your class score. This indicates that shouldn’t crash. In most cases, suitable essays are compiled by people that know how and what to publish.

Like a teacher, I observe that students have a tendency to suffer from the absence of time to art wonderful essays. As a consequence, trainers need to deal with a stack of permanently below average documents developed by frazzled students on a survive-second. What I’d decide to acknowledge would be the fact every so often several of my trainees deal with to produce ideal documents, regardless of if being employed while in the crunch time.

So, is there a formula of earning college or university essay crafting? First off, quality is extremely important. Moreover, the instructor is most likely to concentrate on the frame of mind the pieces of paper was penned with.

Inconsiderate effective time management not simply enables you to go downhill utilizing your duties, in addition, it results in you less time for the exclusive tasks like looking, communicating or hanging out with friends. So, for anybody who is fortunate enough to have many hours to create your regulation essay, you’d superior have it all mapped out attentively. The fact is that, the quicker you start, the more desirable effects you will gain.

Just like you move on in your task, your biggest nightmare might be the many various disruptions upcoming over the road.

Fellow poets protest Saudi death sentence facing Ashraf Fayadh

The Guardian World news: Islam - 27 November, 2015 - 11:28

Carol Ann Duffy, Paul Muldoon and Adonis among writers signing PEN letter calling on Saudi courts to free Palestinian poet convicted of apostasy, and to allow freedom of expression

Poets from around the world are lining up in solidarity with the Palestinian poet Ashraf Fayadh, with the Syrian poet Adonis, Ireland’s Paul Muldoon and Britain’s poet laureate Carol Ann Duffy among the signatories to a letter laying out how “appalled” they are at the death sentence he has been handed by Saudi Arabian authorities.

Fayadh was sentenced to death last week for renouncing Islam, a charge which he denies. Evidence used against him included poems from his collection Instructions Within, which is banned in Saudi Arabia, as well as his posts on Twitter, and a conversation he had in a coffee shop in Abha which was said to be blasphemous. He was given 30 days to appeal the sentence.
