Islamists Threaten British Shop Owners with 40 Lashes for Selling Alcohol
Breitbart's Big Peace ^ | December 14, 2013 | Mary Chastain

Posted on 12/15/2013 5:20:18 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Whitechapel is on the outskirts of London, but it is an area where Muslims enforce Sharia law without any interference from British officials. On Saturday, they took it a step further and told shop owners in the area they will face 40 lashes if they continue to sell alcohol.

The protesters, including Anjem Choudary, the former leader of the Al-Muhajiroun group which was banned under terrorism laws, delivered warning letters to Muslim-owned businesses.

“The shops are run by Muslims and they know they are selling alcohol and they know the sale and consumption of alcohol is completely prohibited,” he said. “We cannot live among the non-Muslims and see this evil take place.”

Mizanur Rahman, organiser of the protest, said it had urged business owners to stop selling alcohol in breach of Muslim laws.

Mr Rahman said: “We want Sharia law to be enforced in Britain,” before adding that many of the Muslim owners had been “embarrassed and ashamed” when confronted about their alcohol sales, but had argued that it was an economic necessity.

In 2011, The Daily Mail did an exposé on these "Muslim patrols" and how the English government has not done anything to stop. Women are targeted if they do not wear a headscarf....

Sounds like a city of Grozny, Chechnya, 1990. It wasn’t even a predominately muslim city at the time. In just 3-4 years infidels weren’t allowed to own a motor vehicle or a home there.

These are not British shop owners, they are muzzie shop owners. I couldn’t give a rat’s -— if they sell alcohol or not.

But, if they intrude on my life, the game is on.

Why should they move back to their former sh*tholes, they are not being slowed down in their takeover of Britain.

The story flat out says they are receiving no interference from the Government. Soon they will become strong enough to become the Government. They will end up with a Muslim Prime Minister, like we have a Muslim President.

They’re getting bolder. Since nobody did anything after the London train station bombing, and the neck slicing on a street in broad daylight, they feel they can do whatever they want.
You limeys should have kicked them the hell out, but you were too busy watching soccer and arresting people who complain about England being overrun by savages.

Threats of violence are clearly criminal acts. But since the British government will likely not do anything about it, the solution is private security.

Oddly enough, the day may be saved by organized crime. That is, to pay for “protection” from organized criminals who will lean on the fanatics. Organized crime in London did not end with the Kray brothers, and even organized criminals rather like acting on behalf of “patriotic” reasons, as distorted their their lens.

They could start by getting a dozen bully boys, and seriously roughing up the leader of the Islamists, to send a message. And it would be an effective message, since such agitators, fond of sending others to do their dirty work, are very reluctant to put their on rear end on the line.

If that’s meant for me, I have NEVER denied that the UK has a problem with Islamic extremists. All I and the other British freepers have done and do is try and correct the hysteria about Islam and the UK, as many here believe that the UK is actually run by these fanatics.

Yes, because it isn’t true.

In fact, the law has been strengthened twice in favour of the victim/homeowner in the last ten years. And this myth bases itself mainly on the Tony Martin case, which I and others have explained. Also, the US myth of no Limey self-defence also in based on the British procedure of police investigation, which again I and others have explained.

It is perfectly legal to defend yourself and your home/property in the UK. This idea we aren’t is a myth.

BTW, as some here know, I myself was the 2008 victim of a burglary and assault, so I KNOW this myth is bunkum.

I squash the ones that aren’t true.

And you are lying about it being just me(in a thread where Winniesboy has also posted, the irony). In previous threads on UK self defence, Winnie, Vanders9 and even our Anglo-Aussie friend Naturalman1975 have all posted about it. Either to back me or I post to back them.

As to your newspaper links, this has been explained a million times, and I am tired of doing it, but I will do it again for you.

When there is an incident in the UK where a suspected burglar has been killed or badly injured, the procedure here is to ‘arrest’ everyone, in order to take them to the police station, question everyone and then release the homeowner if the police are satisfied, as they are in 99.99% of cases, that the self defence was within the law (which I will come on to in a moment).

Yes, we Brit freepers all agree that to Americans that sounds backward and even unfair, but that’s the way we do it. Arrest, question, sort out, release. I fully understand that its seems weird to Americans.

As to self-defence, contrary to myth, it is perfectly legal to defend yourself and home/family, yes even to the point of killing an attacker or burglar (as a Manchester man did last year to a burglar and was found to be perfectly within his rights to do so). The law since 2000 has in fact been strengthened not once but twice towards the VICTIM.

For all the headlines, there are and have been only a tiny, tiny amount of cases of where the homeowner has been found to have acted outside reasonable force. One was Tony Martin (which imo was a bad decision, and most Brits think that), another for example was an Asian family who tracked a burglar a mile from the home and then used a car to run him over again and again, and almost killed him)

It is a complete myth that the British are not allowed to defend body or home, and its also a myth that people in the UK go to jail to even defending body and home/family.

Btw, I myself was the victim of a burglary-assault in Sept 2008, and defended myself with violence (punches, kicks and neck restraint), and I never even went to the police station. My statement was taken, and I was left to lock my door and clean up my cut hand (I was slashed across the hand with a small screwdriver). In fact I was told by the police that I could have used MORE violence to defend myself if necessary!.

My case even made the local papers (the story is on the net), as my offender did eight more break-ins and got 44 months jail. He is now back in prison for attempted murder.

Which, so far, seems to be every article on this subject.

You're basically saying you're the arbiter of truth and every other report out of the UK is a lie. Call me suspicious.

Really? They post every day.

Yep. I like this site and enjoy the banter/arguments. Also someone has stand up for the UK. I don’t mind fair criticism of the UK (there are times I hate my own country), but I wont stand for lies, myths and attacks on the UK. I stand up for the country I love and I wont be apologising for it.

I have explained the laws and rights in the UK pretty clearly. If you wish to ignore that and stick to what the newspapers say, that’s your prerogative. All I am doing to trying to explain what actually happens in the UK as opposed to what people think happens because they read FR threads.

Have I ever said I am the arbiter of truth?. Never. Honestly, son, any more strawmen and you could burn half a dozen Edward Woodwards.
