Cage:Birmingham. Yes, that’s right, the heart of the Midlands “no-go zone”.: Moazzam Begg

Geplaatst door Hate Racist Monitoring Group op maandag 11 juni 2018

CAGE

A couple of years ago I came across Tommy Robinson walking on Ladypool Road in Birmingham. Yes, that’s right, the heart of the Midlands “no-go zone”.

By this time Robinson had left the EDL and had begun his failed attempt to launch and revive the anti-Muslim PEGIDA group in Britain.

A few weeks later, his “protest” in Birmingham garnered around 200 people and was literally a wash-out on a rainy day.

I was deeply surprised to see him in my area and I know he was quite uneasy being stopped in the street by me.

We’d never met before but instantly recognised one another.

I told him that when I was imprisoned in Belmarsh I met one of the Al-Muhajiroon lot who Tommy knew only too well. If you’ve seen the viral video of the guy who slapped Tommy in the face in Luton, you’ll know who I’m talking about. Obviously, Tommy wasn’t impressed when I mentioned him. He really wanted to get away so I didn’t have the chance to tell him the rest of the story.

When I asked the brother why he was in prison he told me he’d been “fighting the ‘rafidah’ (pejorative term for Shias). “You were fighting in Iraq?” I asked. “No”, he replied. “Edgware Road.” I didn’t respond…

I don’t think the story would have consoled Tommy anyway. He evidently had bigger plans.

Love him or hate him, this violent, racist, serial criminal has carefully manoeuvred himself as a hero for many who believe their voices are not being heard. The “silent” white working class majority who care so deeply about rape and grooming gangs festering within Pakistani Muslim communities that they take to the street in their thousands in defence of the man who dares say and do what the politically correct establishment or opposition figures are too afraid to say.

At least, that’s how it appears until you scratch the surface and look at the sheer numbers of white working class, middle class or privileged class paedophiles – including some of Tommy’s own EDL colleagues – convicted for child rape, grooming gangs, sexual assault and beyond.

If as Tommy puts it, Islam is responsible for producing such lowlifes, then how come the overwhelming majority filling British prisons on a daily basis are from his own community?

The truth is people do care about their children, their daughters being abused in this way. I agree that they’re probably not all racists and fascists – I’m sure some will say they have “Muslim friends” – even if it’s on FB. But, that won’t prevent them from joining overtly populist anti-Muslim movements.

Tommy has struck that chord with these growing masses as the far right rides the wave of popularity from America to Europe.

Now, the far right (knuckle-dragger division) has been left headless with Jayda Fransen, Paul Golding and TR all doing time for breaking the very laws they claim to be fighting for. But, don’t let that small detail get in the way. They are neither imprisoned without charge or trial nor are they being targeted on the basis of secret evidence – as countless Muslims have. Putting them in prison may be politically expedient but they are not political prisoners. Common street thuggery and breaking basic laws won’t cut it.

Islam in general and Muslims in specific detest grooming gangs and its forced association with us. The entirety of this behaviour opposes the very principles and morals we are taught to live by. Islam forbids alcohol consumption and drug abuse, extra-marital relations, unrestrained interaction with the opposite sex and promotes safeguarding the young, family values, abstention from vice, enjoining good and forbidding evil and being a source of benefit to our societies is what Islam teaches us.

But, not everyone who claims to be a Muslim lives by Islam’s moral code. Indeed, not everyone who claims to respect the laws of this country abides by them (see above).

We might not agree about some of the laws and measures regarding definitions and application of extremism, terrorism and radicalisation but there is NO dispute about the rape gangs.

That is why I know this is a smoke screen and red herring for what the far right is successfully doing in this country and around the world.

They are the inheritors of Hitler’s legacy and they walk today on his path, just as they did with Europe’s Jews in 1930s.

That is why before, during and after the grooming gangs issue it is Muslim dietary laws, Muslim women’s dress codes, Muslim places of worship, Muslims fasting in Ramadan, Muslim birth rates, Muslim “integration”, Muslim education, Muslim laws, foreign policy in Muslim world and anything else in to do with Muslims – except, of course lucrative Islamic banking, trade and tax free jobs in the Muslim Gulf – that is seen with disdain and hatred. It was precisely these differences that made Europe’s Jews distinct and unique that the Nazis called separatism in order to persecute them.

I genuinely don’t know what the future holds for Muslims who believe in and live by their values in the UK. Dark days seem to loom ahead.

As a teenager when National Front and British Movement skinheads would march on our streets shouting “WOGS” or “Pakis out” we did as we were asked – even though we were relatively few. We came out to meet them. They aren’t around any more.

Today, Muslims are far greater in number but much more afraid and less ready to stand up. That’s why 5,000 FLA thugs can march in Birmingham without much opposition or 20,000 Tommy Robison supporters can swell the capital city and Muslims are absent.

In this blessed month of Ramadan, I love being part of the beautiful peace and tranquillity that arises every night at mosques packed out across the country. I didn’t leave the mosque until 3:30am from last night and it was still packed! We are masters at the spiritual and ritualistic aspects of our faith but, unlike the Messenger of Allah and his companions, we are docile, inactive and silently complicit in the face of oppression.

But, imagine if we could mobilise the same numbers when these thugs come to threaten our very existence? Just a show of numbers, nothing else. Imagine that type of energy harnessed for good instead of shooting or stabbing each other in the streets?

Tommy Robinson and his ilk are not a symptom of the strength of racism today. They are evidence of our own cowardice and weakness.

PARLIAMENT ROUNDTABLE ON RACISM & HATE CRIME

PARLIAMENT ROUNDTABLE ON RACISM & HATE CRIME

PARLIAMENT ROUNDTABLE ON RACISM & HATE CRIME

House of Commons | Committee Room 10 | Westminster | SW1A 0AA London | United Kingdom

Monday, 16 April 2018 from 14:00 to 17:00 (BST)

 


 

22nd April, this year, marks the 25th anniversary of the racist murder of Stephen Lawrence in 1993. The parliamentary forum will chart a remarkable journey over this period – from the senseless and brutal murder to the BREXT state – to tackle racism in the UK.

Official reports continue to acknowledge increases, often dramatic and dangerous, in hate crimes. Sadly, violent racism continues to form the overwhelming majority of hate crimes reported to the police.  In 2016/17, there were 80,393 offences recorded by the police in which one or more hate crime strands were deemed to be a motivating factor. This was an increase of 29 per cent compared with the 62,518 hate crimes recorded in 2015/16, the largest percentage increase seen since the series began in 2011/12. 62,685 (78%) were race hate crimes.

The trends are deeply worrying not only for the targeted communities who have to live with the impact of racist discrimination, harassment and violence, but also for the rest of society.

It is widely regarded that the murder of Stephen Lawrence and the subsequent family oriented campaign triggered a sea change in attitudes over race in the UK.  Sir William Macpherson’s Inquiry examined the circumstances of Stephen’s murder, on April 22 1993, as well as the litany of police failures, and took credit for overhauling Britain’s race relations legislation that created the strongest battery of anti-discrimination powers and policies in Western Europe. In fact, the then Home Secretary, Jack Straw, said that he hoped it would prove “a watershed in attitudes towards racism. I want it to act as a catalyst for permanent and irrevocable change, not just across our public services, but across the whole of society…We must make equality a reality…The pervasive, open racism of the fifties and sixties, the pernicious, sniggering racism of the seventies, eighties and nineties is gone”.

Unfortunately, Straw’s promise now sounds hollow. The BREXIT campaign was wholly anti-immigrant in nature and fuelled by xenophobia and racism and it consolidated far right thinking in mainstream British politics. Although the spike in hate crimes during that period was initially thought to be a short-term problem, the latest reports, however, indicate a long-term trend. More alarmingly, that period also witnessed racially motivated murders on British streets of a Labour politician and migrants. We must now read the signals and prepare for the future.

Although those in power are quick to condemn the worst excesses of far right violence, however there is no policy to deal with the State and institutional forms with serious consequences for victims and their communities as illustrated by the cases of Mr Ebrahimi in Bristol and the ‘Rotherham 12’ in South Yorkshire.

Bijan Ebrahimi: Mr. Ebrahimi, 44, was punched and kicked to death in 2013 by his neighbour Lee James, who had deliberately labeled him as a paedophile. James and another neighbour dragged Ebrahimi’s body to a green in front of his home in Brislington, south Bristol, doused him with white spirit and set fire to him. James was jailed for life. Last year an official murder review concluded that Avon and Somerset police and Bristol city council wrongly perceived Bijan Ebrahimi, as a troublemaker rather than a victim and sided with his white abusers. More information can be accessed on this case by clicking on the following link: https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2017/dec/18/bristol-refugee-murder-review-finds-police-institutional-racism-bijan-ebrahimi

Rotherham 12: All 12 Asian men have been acquitted  (10 last year and the remaining 2 last month) of serious charges after attending a counter demonstration against the fascist Britain First organisation in September 2015 after the racist murder of 81year old grandfather Mushin Ahmed in Rotherham. At the trial, the jury heard that it had been one of a long line of far-right 15 demonstrations held in the town in the aftermath of the child sex abuse scandals uncovered in 2012. A 2014 report by Prof Alexis Jay concluded that failures of political and police leadership had contributed to the sexual exploitation of 1,400 children by Asian men in the town over 16 years. The legal case and the campaign was run on the issue of self defence and police failures to protect a besieged and demonised community and set a precedent for communities resisting both racism and fascism on their doorsteps.

This meeting will focus on the pervasive nature of racism in contemporary Britain, its motivating factors, and how we challenge the problem effectively.  It will hear from individual victims, key community organisations and campaigns that are involved in anti-racist struggles, as well as well-known researchers and academics. It will examine the response of state agencies in the current climate. Importantly, the forum will also discuss what policies and practices that need to be changed in order to halt the intensifying nature of racism.

Contributors include: Imran Khan QC (solicitor for Baroness Lawrence), Dr Aaron Winter, Tony Murphy (solicitor for Bijan Ebrahimi family), The Monitoring Group, Institute of Race Relations, Migrant Rights Network, JAWAAB, Northern Ireland Race Equality Council, Society of Black Lawyers, Rotherham 12 Campaign and others to be announced.

The meeting has been organised by The Monitoring Group with help from Naz Shah, Member of Parliament for Bradford West.  For further information, please contact office@tmg-uk.org

The most repellent figure is standing on his right in this picture below.  (a picture he forgot about)

 

For a home secretary to choose these words must be indication of difficult times for his government.

For a home secretary to choose these words must be indication of difficult times for his government.

 

Home Secretary Sajid Javid goes on to say “I would be very suspicious of anything that they’ve got to say not least because, under the last Labour government – and a policy continued by us – we don’t deal with the MCB.”

“We don’t deal with it because too many of their members have had favourable comments on extremists and that’s not acceptable.”

 

Is  Mr Sajid Javid suggesting they are terrorist? Or have terrorist links?

 

Home Secretary Sajid Javid.  Doing the Zac Goldsmith.  We want to know exactly what is his problem with an inquiry in Tory Party for Racism?

Epic proportions Racism has flourished in Tory Party since cricket test days.

Tory Party
Rule of Hate.
Briefly, Racist picks the subject and starts applying to it random and isolated cases to make point to justify race hatred.
A bit like Tory minister at question time, goes on babbling and makes no sense. As in Islamophobia.
 
Lord N Tebbit had a rule too called the “Cricket Test” ever heard of it?
You would be forgiven for thinking It was Night Cricket Test With Danes in Iceland under shower of Southern Lights.
 
This is what he had to say about it.
“A large proportion of Britain’s Asian population fail to pass the cricket test,”
 
Epic proportions Racism has flourished in Tory Party since cricket test days. Tory party ministers must carry out independent investigation of Racism within the party.

British Abstention of resolutions on long-standing issues between Israel and the Palestinian people

Abstention of resolutions on long-standing issues between Israel and the Palestinian people

Explanation of Vote by Ambassador Karen Pierce, UK Permanent Representative to the UN, at the Security Council session on the situation in the Middle East, including the Palestinian question.

 

 British abstention is nothing more than  supporting Israel and USA.

1 June 2018 (Transcript of the speech, exactly as it was delivered)

Thank you Mr President and may I join colleagues in welcoming you to the Presidency for this month and saying that the United Kingdom looks forward to working with Russia. And may I also thank Poland for their very distinguished Presidency of this Council.

Mr President, the United Kingdom remains extremely concerned by the situation in Gaza. We condemn the violent activities of Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad and other terrorist organisations and we condemn them unreservedly. We have witnessed recently, unacceptable mortar and rocket attacks from Gaza into Israel. Such acts of terror are destructive to peace efforts and they need to stop. And in the past weeks, we have seen violence, Hamas’ exploitation of peaceful protests and a disturbing volume of live fire. Hamas’ military wing has been proscribed as a terrorist organization by the UK since 2001 and the United Kingdom has sanctions in place against senior Hamas officials.

The recent violence has led to the tragic loss of life of over 100 Palestinians, and we reiterate that there is an urgent need to establish the facts surrounding past weeks’ events.

Mr President, the deteriorating situation in Gaza should concentrate our minds on how we can work urgently towards a resolution of the long-standing issues between Israel and the Palestinian people.

The United Kingdom has long supported UN action on Israeli-Palestinian issues. It is therefore regrettable, Mr President, that today’s resolutions contain elements that are either imbalanced or too vague to be viable. For example, the Kuwaiti text fails to name terrorist actors including Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad. And its suggestion of an international protection mechanism risks raising unrealistic expectations. We condemn Hamas, but at the same time, we regret that the American text does not adequately reference Israel’s responsibilities and obligations with regard to Gaza. Therefore Mr President, the United Kingdom will abstain on both resolutions today.

I have set out our principled rationale and nothing more should be construed. Thank you.

Let’s get straight to the point before we belabor the ins and outs of the Tommy Robinson story and what it all means. Israel is, and has been, supporting just about every single far-right movement in Europe who will accept its support in exchange for supporting Israel against ‘radical Islam’ in the Middle-East. It has created for itself any movement with the phrase ‘Defense League’ in it. That includes Tommy Robinson’s former comrades of the EDL – English Defense League.

Israel is doing three things, following the basic ‘problem-reaction-solution’ formula. First of all, their influence should neither be over-estimated, nor under-estimated. There is a strategy of tension at play here, and it does not necessarily revolve around Israel, but also revolves around the US which is actually at odds with the EU. But Israel is undoubtedly gaming this whole thing.

Their goal is to create a greater Israel, as spelled out in the Yinon Plan. FRN and CSS’s own Joaquin Flores’ detailed analysis of the probability that Israel, especially under Likud rule (who have always championed similar) is a good start in order to understand it.

1. Israel helped in creating the problem, supported the pro-migrant policies of European governments, tying them in neatly with a general ‘human rights’ campaign that also includes the nominally inoffensive LGB crowd, but also the problematically normalized pedophilia and transhumanist crowd.  Memes like ‘Open Borders for Israel’underscored Israel’s hypocrisy in having previously supported open border politics for Europe, while being one of the most racist, anti-African countries in the world, paralleling the US installed ‘TNC’ government in Libya in terms of anti-black brutality and racism.

Israel’s global backers, incidentally, the main western banking houses, continue to support an open borders policy for Europe. The ‘left’ was the instrument used to publicly push this through, but the secret hand of various cheap-labor (i.e. migrant) seeking corporations whose production or service is tied to European soil has also always been a major factor. Oh and by the way, this last part is why by and large ‘working class heroes’ like Tommy Robinson despise ‘the left’ in its present incarnation. 70 years ago, someone like Robinson could have been an effective “rabble-rousing” labor party militant. 

2. Now Israel is gaming and playing the reaction to this, now supporting Islamophobia in Europe. I use that term with a lot of reluctance, since enough of what is now called Islamophobia is actually simply a call for a more popular and more sane policy on questions revolving around migration, which invariably effect law, culture, language, and issues of labor. Open borders is not in the interests of most Europeans, and is also unpopular in most of Europe. It’s also not in the interests of the majority of people in the Middle-East for reasons of brain drain and the like. It is therefore an undemocratic, nay, antidemocratic initiative either way you score it. At the same time Islamophobia is a real thing, but the most injurious of its consequences will not be any policy adopted inside of Europe, but what European armies, if the term ‘army’ will still make sense in five years, will be compelled to do in the Middle-East. 

3. The solution Israel wants, having stoked Islamophobic reactionaries to the point of blood curdled madness, is to popularize a general EU intervention – as the French have indicated a desire to do – in the Middle-East – well, the Levant at first, in particular. This ‘global war against Islam’ is supposed to get Western countries to fight Israel’s wars for it, to see the Suez canal in Israel’s hands, as well as most of the oil fields of ‘Syraq’, and the Euphrates River. The Tigris and even access to the Persian Gulf would be a real bonus, but why not shoot for the stars?

So with this understanding, we can get into the particulars of Robinson and the general issue of ‘free speech’.

By now not only has seemingly everyone heard of what happened to Tommy Robinson, they also have a visceral reaction to his arrest, imprisonment and sentence — based almost completely on what their already established opinion of him was before the arrest and/or what their opinion is on “the Muslim question,” whether strictly in the UK or, more broadly, across western Europe or even across the entire West.

Virtually the entirety of the Left in the West along with the immigrant Muslim community applauded the whole affair, from the arrest to the sentence to the gag order on the media that was lifted only three days ago, for reasons having to do with “hate,” “hate speech,” “hatemongers,” “Islamophobia” and so forth and so on.

And virtually the entirety of the right deemed Robinson to be a “free speech” martyr and a hero in the fight against creeping Islamization and “sharia law.”

.

 

But there’s actually much more to the story. As Alison Chabloz, someone else who has fallen afoul of the British state and its speech codes, albeit with almost non-existent media attention, notes:

Accused in Gauri Lankesh Murder Used Fake Names, Multiple Phones to Hide Identity

Four men arrested in the case earlier this week were associated with the right-wing extremist group Sanatan Sanstha and its affiliate Hindu Janajagruti Samiti.

New Delhi: The four men who were arrested earlier this week for the murder of journalist Gauri Lankesh, and for plotting to kill Kannada writer K.S. Bhagwan, had reportedly gone to great lengths to hide their identity.

According to the Indian Express, the men, associated with the right-wing extremist Hindutva group Sanatan Sanstha and its affiliate Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS), maintained notes on surveillance, used fake names and coded messages, and had multiple SIM cards and handsets. They were arrested on Thursday (May 31).

“In recent times, the four were not seen during routine activities and events of the outfit (HJS) but they are suspected to have been engaged in some underground work,’’ police sources told Indian Express.

Police have identified the four as Sujeet Kumar alias Praveen alias Manjunath alias Sujeet S.R., 37, from Udupi in Karnataka; Amol Kale alias Bhaisab alias Sanjay Bhansare, 37, from Pune; Amit Degwekar alias Amit alias Pradeep Mahajan, 38, from Ponda in Goa; and Manohar Edave alias Manoj, 28, from Vijayapura in Karnataka, the newspaper reported.

When asked about the men’s links to the HJS, the organisation’s Karnataka spokesperson Mohan Gowda told Indian Express, “Some of the arrested men may have attended HJS programmes but hundreds of people come for our events.’’

Police said they found elaborate notes in the houses of three of the accused, written in both code and normal language, on the precautions to be used while carrying out surveillance work. “A diary found at the home of Edave from Vijayapura, for instance, contains notes about steps to be taken during reconnaissance. The jottings suggest that among the tasks involved in reconnaissance is tracking CCTV cameras. Diary entries by two of the suspects refer to CCTV cameras in code language as “bulbs”,” the Indian Express report says. The accused also reportedly used fake number plates on a motorcycle while surveilling Lankesh’s neighbourhood.

Police also said that the four used aliases when talking to newcomers to the group about their activities. Sujeet Kumar, for instance, suspected to be the head of the covert operations in Karnataka, identified himself as Praveen to K.T. Naveen Kumar, a Hindu Yuva Sena member, who allegedly did the logistics for the men. Praveen was identified as Sujeet Kumar only after his arrest on May 19,Indian Express reported.

The police also found several phones with the accused. “All the phones are low cost feature phones which they seem to be using in a disposable manner to make only a few select calls,’’ police sources said.

According to the police chargesheet, the accused killed Lankesh because they “were angry with her for speaking against Hindu dharma, Gods of Hindu dharma and insulting Hindu dharma.” According to The Hindu, full statements of the accused have not been made public as the police is afraid that others involved, who are yet to be caught, will be tipped off.

Gauri Lankesh, editor of the weekly Lankesh Patrike magazine, was shot dead by unidentified men at her residence in Bangalore late on September 5, 2017.

Sita was a test-tube baby, says UP deputy CM

  • “Sita was born in a pitcher… must be some test-tube baby project at that time,” Sharma said while addressing a function

NEW DELHI/LUCKNOW: UP deputy CM Dinesh Sharma said on Thursday evening that Sita’s birth in the “Ramayana” was evidence of a “test-tube baby project”. In less than 24 hours, the top BJP leadership asked him to exercise restraint.

Addressing a function in Lucknow on Thursday evening to mark Hindi Journalism Day, Sharma said: “Sitaji ka janm hua toh ghadey se hua… us samay test-tube baby ka koi na koi project raha hoga jo hal chalaya Janakji ne aur ghadey se baby nikli woh Sitaji ban gayi… ye jo aaj ka jo technology hai test-tube baby…woh raha hoga (Sita was born in a pitcher… must be some test-tube baby project at that time; when King Janak was ploughing his field, a pitcher was discovered and the baby found in it came to be known as Sitaji).” The video of Sharma’s speech has since gone viral.

BJP general secretary Bhupendra Yadav spoke to Sharma on Friday following instruction from the top leadership. A senior BJP functionary said Yadav conveyed to Dinesh Sharma the brass’s displeasure over his comment. “The party believes that Sharma’s views are uncalled for and he should not have made such a statement,” the BJP functionary added.

There were protests in Bihar and Nepal against Sharma’s remarks and effigies were burned at a few places. “His (Sharma’s) views are highly insensitive and the party has made it clear that it strongly disagrees with him,” aBJP functionary said. A day before Sharma made the remark on Sita, he created another controversy when he said that Google existed in ancient times.

“Your Google has started now, but our Google started a long time back. Narad Muni was the epitome of information. He could reach anywhere and transfer a message from one place to another by saying Narayana three times,” he said at an event in Mathura on Wednesday.

The deputy CM claimed journalism started during the time of the Mahabharata, citing Sanjaya’s description of the war to the blind king Dhritarashtra sitting in Hastinapur. “If this is not live telecast, then what else is it?” Sharma said. This is not the first time that a BJP functionary has embarrassed the party by making controversial remarks.

PM Narendra Modi had recently asked party functionaries to refrain from speaking out of turn and leave it to the authorised BJP functionaries to speak on different subjects.

The National Commission for Scheduled Castes (NCSC) has said Kachanatham in which three people were hacked to death has witnessed a virtual carnage in the hands of members of a dominant community.

 

Its vice-chairman L Murugan who visited the village on Thursday evening said this was one of the worst attacks on Dalits he had seen in recent times and the brutality was to the core.

 

“The bloodstains in the houses of the hapless people who came under attack bore testimony to the gory attack,” he told The Hindu .

 

After a tiff during a temple festival on May 25 and a member of the dominant community taking objection to Dalit youths sitting cross legged, members of a dominant community had launched a murderous attack on the villagers on Monday night, hacking three people to death and inflicting cut injuries on five others.

 

Mr. Murugan, accompanied by Collector G Latha and Superintendent of Police T. Jayachandran got first-hand information of the ‘carnage’ after interacting with the villagers.

 

He visited the houses of the deceased – K Arumugam (65), A. Shanmuganathan (31) and V. Chandrasekar (34).

 

He said tiled roofs of some houses, television sets and refrigerators in a couple of houses were found damaged.

 

He was satisfied with the overall action taken by the district administration and the police after the incident, he said adding the Collector and the SP had conceded most of the demands of the affected people, including action against police personnel.

 

Ms Latha said she had deputed a team of officials to assess the extent of damage in the village and rectify the same.

 

“I have asked the officials to provide all basic facilities to the village,” she said. She said the district administration has agreed in principle to notify Kachanatham and nearby villages as ‘dalit atrocities prone’ area, she said.

 

The police have also agreed for a CB-CID probe into the attack, she said.
