Skip to comments.Ministers 'are Islamophobic'
Posted on 10/15/2006 3:24:54 AM PDT by MadIvan
MUSLIM leaders have accused ministers of stigmatising an entire community and launching a relentless barrage against Islamic Britons.
Muhammad Abdul Bari, secretary-general of the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB), has written to Ruth Kelly, the communities secretary, accusing her of pandering to an Islamophobic agenda.
The letter follows Kellys announcement last week that the government was cutting funding and official ties with the MCB, which until now has been the main body representing British Muslims. One senior Muslim source said: The government is pandering to a far-right neocon agenda which is promoting Islamophobia.
The MCB says in the letter: In recent months there has been a drip-feed of ministerial statements stigmatising an entire community. We have seen ministers tours and even legislation being proposed on the premise that mosques are a problem.
The council is understood to be particularly concerned by comments by Jack Straw, the Commons leader, about Muslim women wearing full veils.
They are also concerned by the level of stop-and-search by police of Muslim suspects.
According to a poll by Yougov, Straws popularity has jumped 15 percentage points since he made his comments.
Funny line from "Mad TV":
"Everyone knows there's a difference between Muslims and terrorists. The problem is no one knows what the difference is."
I'm not Islamophobic, I'm just bombophobic!!
Same thing, I guess.
The "phobia" label has been part of the Left's modus operandi for years. That, and the "you are ignorant of my position" tactic. This has been used by Islamic clerics, saying people who disagree with them "Are ignorant of true Islam!"
Actually, people in the west are far more informed of what "true Islam" is than they have been in centuries. Moreover, there is nothing irrational about a fear of Islam, in that it is a murderous cult bent on world domination, enslavement of all non-Muslims, and stands guilty of a torture filled rampage.
If Christian ministers are guilty of anything, it is that they have been far too timid for Christ in the last few years. Too many of them are cowards and refuse to speak the truth about this evil in our midst that is Islam.
The government is pandering to a far-right neocon agenda which is promoting Islamophobia.
Their borrowing terminology from socialists and weak-minded conspiracy theorists in the U.S.A.
"The government is pandering to a far right neocon agenda which is promoting Islamophobia."Actually people are simply sick and tired of Muslims expecting preferential treatment and griping when they don't get it.
Well, then, I have the answer!
Bomb the ministers, and cut their heads off! That will show how WRONG they are!!!
Muslims threatening and killing people along with being at the center of most of the world's violence is what is promoting "Islamophobia".
If it's phobia, I'm probably qualified for the label. LOL. Amen.
This saddens me...that people could be this evil, and in the name of their religion makes it even worse.
I know those pictures are photoshopped! They must be. I have never seen them in in MSM and we all know the MSM would never lie to us or mislead us! (/sarc)
The Muslim populace in Britain haven't thought through the implications of that
The terrorists think they can hide among the regular Muslim population, and that looking for them would be like looking for the proverbial "needle in a haystack".
That works fine, until somebody decides to just torch the haystack
How about head-chopper-phobic?
I'm sick of this culture of head-sawers that moans and groans about how it is misunderstood.
I understand it all right:
Bombing trains. Bombing buses. Bombing planes. Flying planes into buildings.
Slicing heads off while singing religious hymns.
Dragging bodies through streets.
Using "charities" to pass money to terrorists. The Sears Tower Plot. Slavery in Sudan,
Killing converts to Christianity. Cutting your head off if you don't convert.
Torturing and killing kids in a school. Nicholas Berg. Daniel Pearl. Margaret Hassan. Paul Johnson.
Calling for the death of the Pope. Rioting over cartoons.
Sure does look like Nazi stuff to me . . just add some goose stepping and there you've got it.
Well there is one difference between Nazis and Islamofascists. Nazis like to use gas while Muslims perfer a good ole beheading.
