  • “Islamophobic hate crime” is actually Muslims who MURDERED ‘deradicalization’ Imam

    It turns out, as it almost always does, that the murderer of UK imam Jalal Uddin was not an “Islamophobe,” as had originally been thought, but other Muslims (one with terror links) who had opposed his “efforts to turn youngsters away from radical Islam.” CAIR was unavailable for comment — The above tweet is typical of leftist apologists for Islam. Where’s Sarah’s follow up tweet? How glaring is their malevolent agenda. Islamic supremacists and Islamic apologists immediately cry “islamophobia” when a Muslim or mosque is attacked, and they are almost always wrong. The perps are usually Muslims. And yet, in...

    Donald Trump gave an amazing speech about his approach to US foreign policy on Wednesday, at least according to Donald Trump. At an event sponsored by the Center for the National Interest, the Republican presidential frontrunner delivered a 5,000-word speech touching on his criticisms of the Obama administration’s approach to national security, the need to whip US allies into shape, and promised that he alone can restore what he described as the lost standing of the US in world affairs. A Trump foreign policy would eschew “nation building” but would still somehow promote stability worldwide. It would teach our allies...

    Unless you live under a rock in a very shady part of the forest or in England or Wales, you have no doubt heard of the peculiar domestic arrangements of the world’s most famous gay marriage. The British musician Elton John and his husband David Furnish, who married last December after several years in a civil partnership, have been in tabloid headlines around the world after revelations that Mr Furnish has been involved in trysts with other men. Except, however, in England and Wales, where publication of anything about the sordid affair has been gagged.

Moments before the US president and First Lady sat down with Prince William, Duchess Kate and Prince Harry on Friday night, an assistant spotted a plaque beneath a painting reading ‘The Negro Page’. Aides reportedly hastily removed the plaque and put a pot plant in front of where the plaque would have been.

    US President Barack Obama told Britons on Friday he loved Winston Churchill, rebuffing suggestions that he had disrespected the wartime leader because of a grudge against Britain linked to his Kenyan ancestry. Obama was visiting London to press Britons to vote to stay in the European Union, and the Churchill issue arose after London Mayor Boris Johnson, who is campaigning for an "Out" vote, brought it up in an article criticizing Obama. "I love Winston Churchill, I love the guy," Obama said when asked at a news conference about Johnson's article.

    The head of Britain’s digital espionage agency has apologized for the organization’s historic prejudice against homosexuals, saying it failed to learn from the treatment of World War II codebreaker Alan Turing. In a rare public speech, GCHQ chief Robert Hannigan told a gathering organized by the rights group Stonewall that the agency’s ban on homosexuals had caused long-lasting psychological damage to many and hurt the agency because talented people were excluded from working there. […] The speech offered a poignant tribute to Turing, the gay computer science pioneer and architect of the effort to crack Nazi Germany’s Enigma cipher. Turing...

    The former head of Britain’s Equalities and Human Rights Commission (EHRC), Trevor Phillips, has admitted he “got almost everything wrong” regarding immigration in a new report, claiming Muslims are creating “nations within nations” in the West. Phillips says followers of Islam hold very different values from the rest of society and many want to lead separate lives. He says schools may have to consider a 50 per cent limit on Muslim, or other minority pupils, to encourage social integration. And he says disturbing survey findings point to a growing chasm between the attitudes of many British Muslims and their compatriots....

    Half of British Muslims want gay sex to be made illegal, according to a new poll. The survey for Channel 4 found there was a “chasm” between views among the British Muslim community and mainstream opinion in this country. It found 52 per cent of Muslims said homosexuality should not be legal in Britain. Of more than 1,000 British Muslims polled by ICM, 39 per cent agreed “wives should always obey their husbands”, and 31 per cent said it was acceptable for a man to have more than one wife. The survey also found 23 per cent said they supported...

    Phillips commissioned “the Runnymede report” into Britain and Islamophobia in 1997 which, according to both Phillips himself and academics across the country, popularised the phrase which has now become synonymous with any criticism – legitimate or not – of Islam or Muslims. “For a long time, I too thought that Europe’s Muslims would become like previous waves of migrants, gradually abandoning their ancestral ways, wearing their religious and cultural baggage lightly, and gradually blending into Britain’s diverse identity landscape. I should have known better.” Phillips comments: “Some of my journalist friends imagine that, with time, the Muslims will grow out...

    THE Falklands Islands have been left without the protection of a British warship for the first time since the conflict 34 years ago. The Royal Navy has provided a "permanent presence" in the South Atlantic since British troops invaded the islands in 1982. But a manpower crisis, a need to deploy ships closer to home and a series of engine problems with the Navy's Type 45 destroyers has led to the islands being left unguarded. No warship has been dispatched since a frigate returned from the region in November, last year. Shadow defence secretary Emily Thornberry branded the situation as...

But such criticism is directed at the wrong target. The problem is that the Belgian authorities, like those in the rest of Europe, are overwhelmed by the sheer scale of extremism in our midst. Tragically, fundamentalist Islam is now part of the urban landscape. Jihadism lurks in cities across Europe wherever there are significant Muslim populations. The blame for this lies not with our security agencies but with our deluded, disloyal and destructive politicians....

    Thousands of soldiers marched solemnly Sunday through the crowded streets of Dublin to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Ireland’s Easter Rising against Britain, a fateful rebellion that reduced parts of the capital to ruins and fired the country’s flame of independence. The Easter parade through Dublin featured military ceremonies at key buildings seized in 1916, when about 1,200 rebels sought to fuel a popular revolt against Ireland’s place in the United Kingdom. […] Many Dubliners opposed the insurrection as an act of treason in time of war, but public sentiment swiftly swung in the rebels’ favor once a newly arrived...

    BAE Systems Plc is offering new options for funding defense deals as the low oil price impacts the spending power of clients in the Middle East, clouding sales prospects for weaponry including the Eurofighter warplane. A $1.5 billion bond sale will support BAE’s cash levels over the next two years, providing it with the flexibility to broker deals requiring smaller upfront payments from customers, Chief Financial Officer Peter Lynas said Thursday. While the debt sale in December was “opportunistic” in a cheap market, BAE took the step “recognizing the financing pressures on certain export customers given the ongoing low oil...

    The headmistress of a Ł33,000-a-year girls' boarding school has called for parents to bring up their children in a 'gender neutral' way so that youngsters can try out 'male' and 'female' roles. Heathfield school's Jo Heywood believes one of the benefits of gender neutral parenting is that it would produce girls confident about entering careers such as science and engineering, traditionally regarded as a man's world. Princess Alexandra, the actress Sienna Miller and the model Amber Le Bon, daughter of Duran Duran's Simon, are among the famous alumni of the school in Ascot, Berkshire. Ms. Heywood told Sian Griffiths of...

    British businesses could have their gas supplies cut off in order to keep households in other parts of Europe warm, under a proposed new EU law.

"In practice this means member states will have to give priority to protected consumers in neighbouring countries over non-protected customers at home," Miguel Arias Canete, the EU energy commissioner, said. "We don’t back legally-binding rules in this area, which is what we and...
