I decided to go to the MPAC UK website today to see what they were saying.
They seem to be a pretty active place, so a good place to catch up on news, especially comment on George Galloways's victory in the by election in Bradford.
George Galloway is a pretty well liked politician
Instead I come across a smear campaign against the local Labour candidate. I think his main crime was being the Labour candidate standing against George Galloway - he was probably the candidate probably even before George Galloway had announced his intention to stand.
The Labour candidate was Muslim and they saw it fit to slander his character in a dispicable manner without the courage to outright say what their allegations were. Worse, they were not allegations of a political nature, but a personal attack on his credentials as a good Muslim, all without having the guts to say it in as many words.
As a Muslim pressure group, they were acting rather unislamic. Like all the other extremists who go against Islam when trying to push Islam. Hypocritical.
If George Galloway had not stood in this constituency, chances are this same MPAC would have been very supportive of the Labour candidate as another Muslim who can represent us in the bigger picture as a new face who is also Muslim.
Instead Since George Galloway decided to also contest the seat, he no longer fit their vision of being a candidate standing against George Galloway, so they went for character assassination.
Dear MPAC: get a grip. If you want to do something, do it right.
Character assasinations are not the way. Remember that the M in MPAC stands for Muslim. Always ask yourself how Muslim you are being in what you are doing.
