Nazis condemn ‘effete liberals’ of ACPO

19 October, 2015 - 18:47

“The war on terror, a euphuism [sic] for dealing with those militant Islamics hell bent on bringing death and destruction to the West, has received a killer blow from Britain’s own top cops. The Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) has announced plans to assign family liaison officers to assist relatives of terrorist suspects arrested by anti-terrorist units….

“The effete liberal response to dealing with those intent on murdering western infidels is a far cry from the actions of others in a similar position. US Colonel Alexander Rodgers was fighting Muslim extremists in the Phillippines in 1911. He introduced a system of burying all dead Muslim juramentados in a common grave with the carcasses of slaughtered pigs. This relatively simple device resulted in the withdrawal of juramentados to sections not held by Rodgers.

“This latest bid to appease the fifth column of home grown militants reveals how those charged with safe-guarding our streets and the majority community from death, injury and damage, are thoroughly unfit for their role.”

Dubai family turned away from Eye

12 October, 2015 - 22:38

london eyeLondon Eye bosses have apologised to a family from Dubai who were initially stopped from boarding, apparently after being overheard speaking in Arabic.

Syed Husain, 65, of Manor House, north London, was stopped while showing his sister and brother-in-law the sights. They joined the queue at the London Eye, on the South Bank, and went through the usual security checks. But Mr Husain said: “As soon as the security guard heard my sister speak to her husband in Arabic, the attitude towards us changed. They said: ‘Sorry, you can’t carry a bag with you’.”

Mr Husain’s bag was searched and he was told to bring it to a locker at Waterloo Station, while his sister and her husband were held in a secure area nearby. He returned without the bag and the three queued again but were confronted by the same security guard, who asked if he was carrying knives. “I was surprised, he had already searched me, now he is asking for knives. I said ‘no’, then he pushed his hand inside my pocket, searching for knives. He couldn’t find any knives. He then let us inside the capsule.”

Don’t penalise all Britons – just Muslims

31 August, 2015 - 14:30

“Americans are at last waking up to the threat posed by British-born Islamists…. The fact that Americans are worried is gratifying. This column was among the first to warn about the radicalization of the British Muslim community. But there is a risk that, having ignored the danger hitherto, Americans may now overreact by penalizing all Britons, not just the minority who really do threaten security.

“It is true that opinion polls show that a significant proportion of British Muslims have at least some sympathy for jihadist extremism, and that even their leaders are unwise or unscrupulous enough to use the threat of terrorism to put pressure on Tony Blair to abandon his support for America and Israel. It is also true, however, that the overwhelming majority of non-Muslim Britons are just as hostile to Islamist terrorism as Americans.

“Even more significantly, the British – like the Americans – are now much more concerned about Islam than was the case five years ago. They no longer believe the assurances of ‘moderate’ Muslim leaders or their non-Muslim apologists that Islam is a religion of peace. People are much better informed and understand that there is a real problem about Islamic theology, which is constantly used to justify jihad against America, Britain and Israel, while suicide ‘martyrs’ are glorified.

“About half of all Britons now see Islam as such, not merely its most extreme versions, as a potential threat to their way of life – not before time. It is not only the war on terror that has to be won; there is a culture war, too. This involves resisting the encroachments of aggressive multiculturalism, which acts as a Trojan horse for Muslim demands to live under Shariah law or to censor legitimate criticism or comment.”
