SHOEBAT
UK LABOUR PARTY Plans To Enforce Islamic Blasphemy Laws By Making Criticism Of Islam A Crime
by Shoebat Foundation on April 25, 2015 in General
By BI: Labour candidate Ed Miliband, who would have put Winston Churchill in prison for his views on Islam, has now pledged to make so-called ‘Islamophobia’ a criminal offense if he becomes Prime Minister. Apparently, Miliband is cut from the same cloth as the ISIS-supporting president of Turkey, Recep Erdogan:

erdogan_21-vi
Breitbart  In an interview with the Muslim News website, Miliband said a Labour government would make Islamophobia an “aggravated crime”.
“We are going to make sure it is marked on people’s records with the police to make sure they root out Islamophobia as a hate crime,” he said, adding: “We are going to change the law on this so we make it absolutely clear of our abhorrence of hate crime and Islamophobia. It will be the first time that the police will record Islamophobic attacks right across the country.”
The Labour leader also pledged that a future Labour government would recognise a Palestinian State, saying he would have supported recognition at last year’s UN vote.
“We would do everything we can to work for a two state solution which is a viable Palestinian state alongside security for Israel,” he said. He added, however, that he was “not in favour of sanctions” against Israel.

Miliband also went on to criticise the government’s anti-extremist Prevent strategy, accusing it of alienating Muslim communities…especially when they are condemned for beheading British citizens.
“The reality is that the people I talk to in the Muslim community are absolutely full square with the idea that we’ve got to make sure that we work with our young people to stop them being dragged into this perverted (terrorist) ideology.
“The way to do it is the Prevent programme working with communities. You got to do the things that once this ideology takes hold you try to disrupt it. For me that is the answer. We want to see how the Prevent programme is community focused.”
Last November, the Charity Commission announced it was investigating four charities over alleged links to Islamist fighters in Syria. Al-Fatiha Global, for which murdered British hostage Alan Henning worked, was investigated after one of its leaders was photographed with his arms around two masked men with machine guns.
Referring to the investigations, Miliband said he was “not in favour of demonizing anyone (and) that is the wrong thing to do.” (How about demonizing all the Muslim paedophile sex gangs that have abducted and enslaved thousands of white Christian young girls into prostitution? Will doing that be considered ‘Islamophobic’ too?)

“What I am in favour is the Charity Commission working without fear or favour. We got to build right across the Muslim community. There is absolutely shared purpose and shared desire to deal with a small minority in our country who get tempted to violent extremism. That is what we got to build on and it is about working with them.”
Making his pitch to Muslim voters, he added: “If you look at what I have done as Leader of the Labour Party I have learnt the lesson of Iraq war, I said no to military action in Syria in summer of 2013 when it was controversial. I have moved forward in the position to causes of Palestinian people.
“Our Government will be absolutely committed to equality not just in law but in fact too. We are committed to race equality strategy. That is why we are committed to breaking down barriers of discrimination.”

UK Labour Party: “We will introduce state funded Islamic schools in 2015″
Posted on February 16, 2014 by ADMIN 69 Comments

A new proposal under the Labour party could see that some church of England schools are replaced by Islamic schools in order to embrace multiculturalism at primary school age level.
State funded Islamic schools: white British children wearing burkas alongside Muslim kids.
The proposal which is being drawn up by Ed Miliband seeks to bring cultural fairness across the board and allow the Muslim council of great Britain to provisionally run the proposed islamic schools.
In the interest of fairness, application to entry of these ‘Islamic Schools’ would be open to anybody from any cultural or religious background but uniform rules would apply to all, meaning that a white British girl would be made to wear the traditional Islamic burka whilst boys would be made to wear Islamic robes.
A spokesman for the Labour Party, John Chapman said, ‘The idea of having Islamic schools running alongside state Christian schools is an exciting idea and the way forward in terms of bettering Britain’s understanding of the islamic religion’
‘These state funded Islamic schools would be maintained by the Islamic council of great Britain who currently form an impromptu government over the Islamic states of great Britain, we seek to further our relationship with the council and work with them constructively to build a better multiculturalist future for Britain’.
The Labour party would hope to have the first Islamic School up and running by 2017, providing its a success then they plan a further 20 across the country for 2018,
This new move comes amidst a series of new policy moves introduced by the Labour Party which they hope to implement should they win the general election in 2015.
Should Britain have state funded Islamic Schools?
NOTE:
Two readers from Britain emailed TMI to claim they contacted the British Labour party regarding this policy, and “the article is not accurate”. We asked for an offical statement to prove and confirm the article wrong. Nothing came forth so can dismiss that they actually contacted the political party at all. Once we had asked the readers themselves to provide official confirmation, in writing, to their claims, they turned silent. So we neither have an official statement from the readers or the Labour Party.
In England the largest contributor to the nation’s massive Islamist problem was created by former Prime minister Tony Blair, who endorsed Sharia courts and unrestricted open door policy to Muslim immigration. During the Blair government more people were imigrating into the country than leaving it, for the first time in its history. This meant that In Britain nearly 10 million new migrants [1995-2014 stats], the majority from the third world, criminalized, corrupt and war thorn countries, entered tne country. The largest and explosive increase happened during Tony Blair’s government and continued from then onwards without restrictions.
This uncontrolled immigration policy was enforced with EU policies and created an influx of over 150 million migrants into Europe, which now consist of a total population of over 740 million people. Look what the consequences of this has turned into. If they don’t do something about the Muslim problems in the country they will not survive as a country beyond year 2050.
Who created the problems in England? Tony Blair’s left-wing Labour government ‘ruled’ between 1997 to 2007. During this period the Muslim population grew by almost 5%. The political party continued to be in governmental power under new leadership (Gordon Brown) until 2010. Roughly 10 million people immigrated into Britain between 1995-2014. The majority were from Muslim countries, Asia, Africa and non-EU domicils. Around 8 million of that figure entered during the Labour administration. It is estimated that Britain has over 100 Muslim Arbitration Tribunals (Sharia courts) that rule on FGM, honor killings, apostasy, and other Islamic laws. By 2007 England housed over 1,500 mosques.

On Easter, UK’s Cameron Speaks Up for Persecuted Christians, Obama Tells Christians to be Less Hateful
By Raymond Ibrahim April 12, 2015 , 9:00 am
In a world where Western leaders and politicians regularly distance themselves from their Christian heritage, preferring to tout “multiculturalism,” United Kingdom Prime Minister David Cameron’s Easter message is refreshing.

Among other things, Cameron made it a point to say “that we should feel proud to say, ‘This is a Christian country.’ Yes, we’re a nation that embraces, welcomes and accepts all faiths and none, but we are still a Christian country.”
In this context, the Islamic Umma – where non-Muslims are not “welcomed” or “accepted” — comes to mind: whereas the West, thanks to its Christian heritage, developed in a way as to be open and tolerant of others, the Islamic world has and likely will not.
In fact, Cameron also urged his fellow citizens to speak out about the persecution of Christians:
We have a duty to speak out about the persecution of Christians around the world too.  It is truly shocking that in 2015 there are still Christians being threatened, tortured, even killed because of their faith.  From Egypt to Nigeria, Libya to North Korea.  Across the Middle East Christians have been hounded out of their homes, forced to flee from village to village; many of them forced to renounce their faith or brutally murdered.  To all those brave Christians in Iraq and Syria who practice their faith or shelter others, we will say, “We stand with you.”
Meanwhile, U.S. President Obama—who is on record saying “we are no longer a Christian nation” and, unlike Cameron, never notes the Islamic identity of murderers or the Christian identity of their victims and ignored a recent UN session on Christian persecution—had this to say at the Easter Prayer Breakfast:  “On Easter, I do reflect on the fact that as a Christian, I am supposed to love.  And I have to say that sometimes when I listen to less than loving expressions by Christians, I get concerned.”
This is in keeping with his earlier statements calling on Americans in general Christians in particular to be nonjudgmental of Islamic terrorism.
In other words, those Christians who are critical and speak up against injustices, in this case, Muslim persecution of Christians, need to shut up and be doormats that allow anything and everything.  Such is “tolerance.”  Christians are being persecuted?  That’s okay, turn the other cheek, seems to be the American president’s message at a time when Christians, as Cameron noted, are being slaughtered all throughout the Islamic world.

UK: Sharia Courts Abusing Muslim Women
By Soeren Kern April 12, 2015 , 8:00 am

The report shows how the increasing influence of Sharia law in Britain today is undermining the fundamental principle that there must be equality for all British citizens under a single law of the land.
“I feel betrayed by Britain. I came here to get away from this and the situation is worse here than in the country I escaped from.” — Muslim woman interviewed for the report.
The report concludes by calling on the British government to launch a judge-led inquiry to “determine the extent to which discriminatory Sharia law principles are being applied within the UK.”

“The government’s response will be a litmus test of the extent to which it genuinely upholds the principle of equality before the law or is so dominated by the fear of ‘giving offense’ that it will continue to allow these women to suffer in ways which would make our suffragettes turn in their graves.” — Baroness Caroline Cox.
Muslim women across Britain are being systematically oppressed, abused and discriminated against by Sharia law courts that treat women as second-class citizens, according to a new report, which warns against the spiraling proliferation of Islamic tribunals in the United Kingdom.
The 40-page report, “A Parallel World: Confronting the Abuse of Many Muslim Women in Britain Today,” was authored by Baroness Caroline Cox, a cross-bench member of the British House of Lords and one of the leading defenders of women’s rights in the UK.
The report shows how the increasing influence of Sharia law in Britain today is undermining the fundamental principle that there must be equality for all British citizens under a single law of the land.
The Arbitration Act of 1996 allows parties to resolve certain civil disputes according to Sharia principles in such a way that the decision can be enforced in British courts.
According to the report, however, many Muslim bodies are using the Arbitration Act to support the claim that they are able to make legally binding decisions for members of the Muslim community, when in fact the law limits their role to that of being a mediator to help reach an agreement. “The mediator is not a judge or an arbitrator who imposes a decision,” the report states.
The report shows how Sharia courts often fuse the concepts of arbitration, in which both parties agree to submit their dispute to a mutually agreeable third party for a decision to be made, andmediation, in which the two parties voluntarily use a third party to help them reach an agreement that is acceptable to both sides.
On top of this lies the problem of “jurisdiction creep,” whereby Sharia courts are adjudicating on matters well outside the arbitration framework, such as by deciding cases relating to criminal law, including those involving domestic violence and grievous bodily harm.
Haitham al-Haddad is a British Sharia court judge, and sits on the board of advisors for the Islamic Sharia Council. Regarding the handling of domestic violence cases, he stated in an interview, “A man should not be questioned why he hit his wife, because this is something between them. Leave them alone. They can sort their matters among themselves.” (Image source: Channel 4 News video screenshot)
As a result, Muslim women, who may lack knowledge of both the English language and their rights under British law, are often pressured by their families to use Sharia courts. These courts often coerce them to sign an agreement to abide by their decisions, which are imposed and viewed as legal judgments.

Worse yet, “Refusal to settle a dispute in a Sharia forum could lead to threats and intimidation, or being ostracized and labelled a disbeliever,” the report states, and adds:
“There is a particular concern that women face pressure to withdraw allegations of domestic violence after they make them. Several women’s groups say they are often reluctant to go to the authorities with women who have run away to escape violence because they cannot trust police officers within the community not to betray the girls to their abusing families.”
The report shows that even in cases where Muslim tribunals work “in tandem” with police investigations, abused women often withdraw their complaints to the police, while Sharia judges let the husbands go unpunished.
Meanwhile, most Sharia courts, when dealing with divorce, do so only in a religious sense. They cannot grant civil divorce; they simply grant a religious divorce in accordance with Sharia law.

The Israel Bible - The ULTIMATE Way to Connect to the Written Word of God
According to the report, in many cases this is all that is necessary for a “divorce” anyway; many Muslim women who identify themselves as being “married” are not in marriages that are legally recognized by British law. Although a nikah (an Islamic wedding ceremony) may have taken place, if the marriage is not officially registered, it is not valid in the eyes of civil law. The report states:

“This creates a very serious problem: women who are married in Islamic ceremonies but are not officially married under English law can suffer grave disadvantages because they lack legal protection. What is more, they can be unaware that their marriage is not officially recognized by English law.”
This places Muslim women in an especially precarious legal situation when it comes to divorce. In Islam, a husband does not have to follow the same process as the wife when seeking a talaq(Islamic divorce). He merely has to say “I divorce you” three times, whereas the wife must meet various conditions and pay a fee. The report cites women, when speaking of their own talaqproceedings, who referred to their lack of legal protection after discovering that their nikah did not constitute a valid marriage under English law.
The report cites Kalsoom Bashir, a long-time women’s rights activist in Bristol, who discusses the added problem of polygamy. She notes:
“There is an increasing rise in polygamy within Muslim families and again the women who are involved are not in a position to be able to challenge the situation or get any form of justice. They find it difficult to obtain any maintenance as the marriages are not registered legally. Polygamy is used to control first wives who are told that if they are a problem the man has the Islamic right to take another wife. Sometimes just one of the marriages is registered leaving one wife without any legal protections.”
Overall, the report includes excerpts of testimonies of more than a dozen Muslim women who have suffered abuse and injustice at the hands of Sharia courts in Britain. One woman said: “I feel betrayed by Britain. I came here to get away from this and the situation is worse here than in the country I escaped from.”
The report concludes by calling on the British government to launch a judge-led inquiry to “determine the extent to which discriminatory Sharia law principles are being applied within the UK.” It also calls on the government to support Baroness Cox’s Private Members’ Bill — theArbitration and Mediation Services (Equality) Bill — which would “create a new criminal offense criminalizing any person who purports to legally adjudicate upon matters which ought to be decided by criminal or family courts.”
Baroness Cox originally introduced the bill in 2011, but it went nowhere due to the lack of support from the main parties. She re-introduced the bill in 2013 and 2014, but it continues to languish, apparently because the main parties are afraid of offending Muslims. Cox has vowed to re-introduce the bill in the next session of Parliament, whose members will be elected on May 7.
The bill aims to combat discrimination by, among other restrictions, prohibiting Sharia courts from: a) treating the evidence of a man as worth more than the evidence of a woman; b) proceeding on the assumption that the division of an estate between male and female children on intestacy must be unequal; or c) proceeding on the assumption that a woman has fewer property rights than a man.
The law would also place a duty on public bodies to ensure that women in polygamous households, or those who have had a religious marriage, are made aware of their legal position and relevant legal rights under British law.
In a letter, Baroness Cox wrote that her recommendations “can by no means remedy all of the sensitive issues involved, but they do offer an important opportunity for redress.” She added that her bill “already has strong support from across the political spectrum in the House of Lords as well as from Muslim women’s groups and other organisations concerned with the suffering of vulnerable women.”
But it remains to be seen whether the next government will agree to support the bill. On March 23, British Home Secretary Theresa May pledged that if the Conservative Party wins the general election, she would launch a review into whether Sharia courts in England and Wales are compatible with British values.
But the Conservative government’s track record on confronting Islam has been patchy at best. In November 2013, for example, the government rejected an amendment offered by Cox to the Anti-Social Behavior, Crime and Policing Bill, which would have protected women who are duped into believing that their marriages are valid under British law when in fact they are not.
More recently, the Conservatives quashed a “politically incorrect” inquiry into the activities of the Muslim Brotherhood in Britain.
While Cox welcomed May’s commitment to investigate Sharia courts, she also expressed concern that politicians will once again bow to political correctness. It is important, she wrote, that such investigations “do not fall at the first hurdle, as appears to have happened with previous, similar government-led reviews. Without powers to subpoena witnesses, any independent review — no matter how well intentioned — will be another lost opportunity.”
Cox summed it up this way:
“The government’s response will be a litmus test of the extent to which it genuinely upholds the principle of equality before the law or is so dominated by the fear of ‘giving offense’ that it will continue to allow these women to suffer in ways which would make our suffragettes turn in their graves.”

UK: Grandson of prominent Islamic scholar joins the Islamic State 
“Just ordinary Yorkshire lads.” That is probably true, in today’s Britain. Lads like these are all too ordinary, and that is why free Britain is in its death throes.

Meanwhile, Hassan Munshi’s grandfather is a respected Islamic scholar who is involved with a Sharia court. What does he teach? Is anyone tracking his sermons and sharia court rulings? Or is that kind of law enforcement activity forbidden in dhimmi Britain?
“Just ‘Ordinary Yorkshire Lads': Parents of Young Jihadi Terror Tourists Shocked at Syria Disappearance,” by Liam Deacon, Breitbart, 8 Apr 2015 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

Britain’s latest ISIS terror recruit is a resident of Britain’s most racially-segregated town and the brother of this country’s youngest convicted terrorist.
Labour’s junior justice minister Shahid Malik dismissed any link, saying, “Lightning stuck twice.”
Hassan Munshi, 17, from the Islamic enclave of Savile Town in Dewsbury is probably already in Syria. He is the grandson of prominent local Islamic scholar Yakub Munshi, who was reportedly the driving force behind the creation of Dewsbury’s first sharia court.
The boy and a jihadi neighbor and childhood friend told their parents they were going on a school trip over the Easter break, but are thought to have taken a flight to a Turkish resort near the border with Syria.
In a joint statement the two families said: “These were just two ordinary Yorkshire lads who enjoyed the things that all young people enjoy at their age.” They added, “naturally, we are in a state of profound shock and are trying to come to terms with the predicament we find ourselves in.”
In 2008 Hassan’s older brother, Hammad Munshi, was just 15 when he joined a terror cell believed to have been plotting against the royal family. He was found to have downloaded instructions for bomb making and was stashing notes about martyrdom fantasies under his bed. He returned to the family home four years ago and is said to be “reformed.”
Six years ago, at the time of the older brother’s arrest, local MP Shahid Malik said; “It is a real wake-up call for parents because there is a real need to be vigilant, especially when their kids are on the Internet… It is a real wake-up call to how older jihadists can prey on vulnerable young people.”
All are from Savile Town in Dewsbury, which is 98.7% Asian and has been described as the most segregated area of Britain. A Deobandi school of Islam that was founded in colonial India, specifically to oppose western culture, dominates the town. Mohammad Sidique Khan, the leader of the group responsible for the 7 July 2005 bombings in London, grew up in the area.
Savile is host to one of the largest mosques in the country where Hassan’s grandfather is reportedly a senior figure. It is the European headquarters of Tablighi Jamaat, a Debandi revivalist movement whose mandate is, according to leading advocate Ebrahim Rangooni, to save the Muslim world “from the culture and civilisation of the Jews and the Christians…” To this end, he suggested cultivating, “such hatred for their ways as human beings have to urine and excrement.”
David Cameron has said he is concerned that the Turkish Airline let the boys on the flight and called for “new proportionate arrangements,” such as temporary passport seizure powers, to ensure wannabe jihadists can’t leave.

Preacher Fined for 'Emotional Harm' Caused by Quoting Levitical Law Against Homosexuality
 
(CN) -- A street preacher in the UK who was charged with making “homophobic” remarks has been declared guilty of breaking English law and must pay a fine for his speech, including to a man to whom he quoted Scripture from the book of Leviticus.

As previously reported, Mike Overd, a street preacher for five years, was accused of speaking against homosexuality and Islam last June and July on two separate occasions. He was leveled with two charges of using threatening and abusive words, and a charge of causing racially or religiously aggravated harassment, alarm or distress under the Public Order Act.
 
A police officer had appeared on local television last fall to urge residents to record Overd’s speech as it had been reported that he was causing offense.

“I’d advise people that if they’re offended to record any incident on their mobile phone and send it to us,” Sgt. Neil Kimmins told reporters.
During his trial last week, Overd presented two videos as evidence to what occurred as he was preaching from the Bible on the street. In one of the clips, a woman with a little boy approaches Overd and says that she wants to ask him a question. The woman then opines that God loves homosexuals.
“Just because I don’t like their sins does not mean I don’t like them,” Overd says as he continues preaching.
In another video, a police officer approaches the street preacher and tells him that he has received complaints for making “homophobic” statements.
Connect with Christian News
“If I hear one homophobic word out of your mouth here today, I will arrest you,” the officer threatens, advising Overd that he has freedom of speech, but may not offend others.

On Monday, Judge Shamim Qureshi, a Muslim who also serves as the presiding judge at the Sharia law-based Muslim Arbitration Tribunal, declared Overd guilty of violating the Public Order Act for his remarks about homosexuality.
“The judge at Bristol Crown Court told him that he should not have used the particular verse in the Bible—Leviticus 20:13—because it uses the word ‘abomination,'” reports the UK-based publication Christian Today. “The judge suggested that there were other verses he could have chosen if he wanted to talk about what the Bible says about homosexuality.”
“All people exercise their right of speech and religion and this country’s laws protect their rights to do so. On the other hand, Mr Overd asks me to interpret the law to endorse his desire to shout, bully, and berate members of the public until they convert to his branch of Christianity,” Qureshi said. “Ironically, those who complained about him at court were Christians.”
“I cannot interpret the law in the way Mr. Overd and his legal team ask,” he continued. “Such a decision would not be the upholding of equal human rights and would be seized upon by fundamentalists and extremists to be the first step to public disorder.”
Overd was fined 1,400 British pounds, the equivalent of approximately $2,090 dollars, part of which was to go to a homosexual man to whom he had quoted the Scripture. The street preacher initially resisted the fine, but was then threatened with jail time if he did not comply.
“Your judgement is flawed and way out of line,” Overd told Qureshi. “You will answer to the same God as me.”
Libby Towell of the Christian Legal Centre, which provided representation for Overd said that she found the ruling to be “shocking.”
“It’s [come down to] now going through the Bible, saying that some parts shouldn’t be spoken about and might cause emotional harm,” she noted. “There’s been a concerted campaign to stop him speaking the word of God on the streets of Taunton. Today was the result that the police had been looking for.”
While Overd was convicted in regard to his speech on homosexuality, he was acquitted for speaking against Islam on the streets.

UK Groups Circulate Declaration of Appreciation for Israel as Safe Haven for Christians
MARCH 10, 2015 3:47 PM 
JNS.org – British Christian groups are circulating a declaration expressing appreciation for Israel as a safe haven for Middle East Christians, support for bolstering ties with the Jewish state, and a call to combat antisemitism.

Called the “Shalom Declaration,” the document states, “We deeply appreciate that Israel is the only country in the Middle East which extends freedom of worship to all its citizens and where the Christian community is growing,” the UK-based Jewish News reported.
“We grieve and stand with families in Israel and the wider Middle East, who have lost loved ones and with all who are persecuted by the rise of violent extremism and intolerance in the region,” the document adds.
The declaration also calls on Christians and UK leaders to work to combat the growing threat of antisemitism and forge closer British-Israeli relations.
Antisemitic incidents in the UK reached their highest levels ever in 2014, according to a report by the British watchdog group Community Security Trust.
The declaration has been endorsed by several Christian organizations, including Christian Friends of Israel and the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem, as well as individual churches and prayer groups.
“Sadly, we often hear of negativity [about Israel] from elements within the churches in the UK. The Shalom Declaration is a powerful reminder we have strong friends in the Christian community. They wish to promote the cause of peace in a way which recognizes Israel as the only democracy in the Middle East,” said Steven Jaffe, a consultant with the Board of Deputies of British Jews.
The declaration is expected to be signed by more than 800 Christians at a gathering in Westminster later this month, in addition to signing opportunities for Christians at an Edinburgh Friends of Israel event and a Christian event in Northern Ireland.

UK: Theresa May, appeaser of jihadis, tells jihadis “the game is up” 
Theresa May has long accommodated, appeased, and capitulated the jihad force.Will May lift our ban? Don’t hold your kaffir breath 
UK: Theresa May, appeaser of jihadis, tells jihadis “the game is up”, Jihad Watch, March 23, 2015

In reality, the game was up long ago, when Theresa May and David Cameron opted to hound and demonize opponents of jihad terror, and coddle and appease jihad terrorists. This attempt to appear to be adopting a tough stance is far too late and just for show. Electioneering already, Theresa? It won’t matter in any case: whatever the outcome of elections at any time, future generations of free Britons, if there are any, will curse your name for delivering their country so easily and willingly into the hands of those who were determined to make it over into an authoritarian Sharia state.
“Theresa May tells Islamist extremists: ‘The game is up,’” by Steven Swinford, the Telegraph, March 23, 2015 (thanks to John):
Theresa May will today tell radical Islamists that the “game is up” and that they were no longer tolerated in Britain as she sets out Tory plans for a crackdown on extremism.
The Home Secretary is expected to say that a future Conservative government target Sharia law, change the rules on granting citizenship to ensure people embrace British values and introduce “banning orders” for extremist groups.
Radicals will also be barred from working unsupervised with children amid fears that young people are being brainwashed, while staff at job centres will be required to identify vulnerable claimants who may become targets for radicalisation.
In a speech in London she will invite all moderate Muslims to join her in exposing the “hatred, bigotry and ignorance” of extremists who seek to undermine the values of democracy, equality and free speech.
The new counter-extremism policy is aimed at tackling radical preachers and individuals who try to brainwash young Muslims and encourage them to embrace extremist views.
Battle-hardened and vengeful, 300 jihadists are back in Britain
We can debate the extremists, listen to them, scream and shout and insult them. But we must never ban them
She will say that a “small but significant” number of people in Britain are trying to undermine the nation’s values and create a “clash of civilisations”.
She will cite the Trojan Horse plot to take over state schools in Birmingham, corruption in Tower Hamlets in East London and the use of Sharia law being used to discriminate against women.
She will also condemn hate preachers, the practice of gender segregation at some universities and the thousands of “honour” crimes committed every year.
Mrs May will say: “Extremism is not something that can just be ignored. It cannot be wished away. It must be tackled head on. Because where extremism takes root the consequences are clear. Women’s rights are eroded. There is discrimination on the basis of race and sexuality.
“There is no longer equal access to the labour market, to the law, or to wider society. Communities become segregated and cut off from one another. Intolerance, hatred and bigotry become normalised. Trust is replaced by fear, reciprocity by envy, and solidarity by division.
“Where they seek to divide us, our values are what unite us. Where they seek to dictate, lecture and limit opportunity, our values offer young people hope and the chance to succeed. The extremists have no vision for Britain that can sustain the dreams and ambitions of its people. Theirs is a negative, depressing and in fact absurd view of the world – and it is one we know that in the end we can expose and defeat.”
She will appeal to “every single person in Britain” to join her in a new “partnership” to celebrate British values and defeat ignorance.
She will say: “But to those people who do not want to join this new partnership, to those who choose consciously to reject our values and the basic principles of our society, the message is equally clear. The game is up.
“We will no longer tolerate your behaviour. We will expose your hateful beliefs for what they are. Where you seek to spread hate, we will disrupt you. Where you break the law, we will prosecute you.Where you seek to divide us, we will stand united. And together, we will defeat you.”
The Home Secretary will say that a future Conservative government will commission an independent review into the operation of Sharia courts in Britain, while councils will be ordered to “take steps to ensure the safeguarding of children in hithero unregulated places”, such as tuition centres.
British values will form “an integral part of applying for a visa” which even visitors will have to comply with.
The Home Secretary will also introduce “banning orders” for extremist groups, which would make it a criminal offence to be a member of or raise funds for a group that spreads or promotes hatred. The maximum sentence could be up to 10 years in prison.

UK Groups Circulate Declaration of Appreciation for Israel as Safe Haven for Christians
By JNS March 12, 2015 , 8:00 am

“And my tongue will talk of your righteous help all the day long…” (Psalm 71:24)

British Christian groups are circulating a declaration expressing appreciation for Israel as a safe haven for Middle East Christians, support for bolstering ties with the Jewish state, and a call to combat anti-Semitism.

Called the “Shalom Declaration,” the document states, “We deeply appreciate that Israel is the only country in the Middle East which extends freedom of worship to all its citizens and where the Christian community is growing,” the U.K.-based Jewish News reported.
“We grieve and stand with families in Israel and the wider Middle East, who have lost loved ones and with all who are persecuted by the rise of violent extremism and intolerance in the region,” the document adds.
The declaration also calls on Christians and U.K. leaders to work to combat the growing threat of anti-Semitism and forge closer British-Israeli relations.

Anti-Semitic incidents in the U.K. reached their highest levels ever in 2014, according to a report by the British watchdog group Community Security Trust.
The declaration has been endorsed by several Christian organizations, including Christian Friends of Israel and the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem, as well as individual churches and prayer groups.
“Sadly, we often hear of negativity [about Israel] from elements within the churches in the U.K. The Shalom Declaration is a powerful reminder we have strong friends in the Christian community. They wish to promote the cause of peace in a way which recognizes Israel as the only democracy in the Middle East,” said Steven Jaffe, a consultant with the Board of Deputies of British Jews.
The declaration is expected to be signed by more than 800 Christians at a gathering in Westminster later this month, in addition to signing opportunities for Christians at an Edinburgh Friends of Israel event and a Christian event in Northern Ireland.

More evidence that #GeorgeGallowayIsAntisemitic
BY ADAM LEVICK ON MARCH 9, 2015    
On Feb. 5th we posted about an episode of BBC’s Question Time in which Guardian executive editor Jonathan Freedland accused George Galloway, the MP from Bradford West, of fueling antisemitism with his conspiracy-ridden, obsessive hatred of Israel. A few days later, in the context of a tweet by Glenn Greenwald defending Galloway against these charges, a Guardian journalist named Hadley Freeman tweeted her belief that Galloway has indeed crossed the line into antisemitism. 

After Galloway threatened to sue Hadley for her ‘defamatory comments’, she deleted her tweet.
Since then, Galloway’s lawyers have attempted to stifle such criticism directed towards him by suing twitter users who, like Hadley, suggest that he has engaged in antisemitism.
Undaunted by such intimidation, we published a post on Feb. 12th expressing our view that Galloway is indeed antisemitic (based on the EUMC Working Definition of Antisemitism), and pointed to the following evidence.
Galloway openly calls for “the destruction of the political state of Israel.”
Galloway explicitly expresses and demonstrates support for violent, genocidal antisemitic extremist movements like Hamas and Hezbollah.
Galloway walked out of a debate with an Israeli Jew, declaring “I don’t recognize Israel and I don’t debate Israelis”.
Galloway declared his district an “Israeli-free zone“.
Galloway said he was “enthralled” by a book written by extreme antisemite Gilad Atzmon. The book, The Wandering Who?, was described by CST as “probably the most antisemitic book published in this country in recent years,” and included Holocaust denial, per these passages:
“To regard Hitler as the ultimate evil is nothing but surrendering to the Zio-centric discourse. To regard Hitler as the wickedest man and the Third Reich as the embodiment of evilness is to let Israel off the hook. To compare Olmert to Hitler is to provide Israel and Olmert with a metaphorical moral shield. It maintains Hitler at the lead and allows Olmert to stay in the tail. We should never compare Israel to Nazi Germany. As far as evilness is concerned, we should now let Israel take the lead.”

“The question of whether there was a mass homicide with gas or ‘just’ a mass death toll due to total abuse in horrendous conditions is no doubt a crucial historical question. The fact that such a major historical chapter less than seven decades ago is scholarly [sic] inaccessible undermines the entire historical endeavour. …Furthermore, unless one approves and repeats the official Holocaust narrative, one may find oneself locked behind bars. This happened lately to three rightwing history revisionists who dared to suspect the official Auschwitz narrative. ….I can see these three outlaws :[David] Irving, [Ernest] Zundel and [Germar] Rudolf, the three rightwing historical revisionists who happen to be locked behind bars. …While left academics are mainly concerned with signalling out Holocaust deniers telling us what is right and who is wrong, it is the revisionists who engage themselves in detailed archive work as well as forensic scrutiny…. If history shapes the future, we need to liberate our perspective of the past, rather than arresting revisionists, we simply need many more of them.”
Evidently, Atzmon isn’t the only anti-Jewish activist that Galloway is ‘enthralled’ with.

A tweet by Galloway on March 2nd expressed enthusiastic support for Asghar Bukhari, a founding member of the Muslim Public Affairs Committee UK (MPACUK), an organisation banned from university campuses in 2004 due to its promotion of antisemitism.
Bukhari has advised supporters of Israel to literally kill themselves and has shown support for Holocaust denier David Irving.
We’ve placed Galloway’s expression of support for Bukhari next to the evidence we’re referring to:

So, to recap: George Galloway seeks a total boycott of Israel and all Israeli Jews, calls for the destruction of the only Jewish state, advocates for terror groups which call for the mass murder of Jews and supports antisemites (and supporters of Holocaust denial) such as Gilad Atzmon and Asghar Bukhari.

With antisemitism in the UK at a record high, and Jews fleeing Europe in increasingly large numbers due to the fear of jihadist attacks on Jews and Jewish institutions, the need to speak truth to power and call out those who legitimize and propagate such toxic racism takes on greater moral urgency.
So, once again, let’s be clear:

New Israel Fund Supported by UK Muslim Supremacist Leader
 Tell me who your friends are, and I’ll tell you who you are.

The New Israel Fund was supported on Twitter tonight by none other than Mohammed Amin, a British Muslim who is Vice Chairman of the Conservative Muslim Forum.
He regularly supports NIF – and here’s his latest:
https://twitter.com/Mohammed_Amin
Mohammed Amin @Mohammed_Amin  ·  2h 2 hours ago
I would like to reaffirm my support for the New Israel Fund. I deplore the politically motivated attacks on it. #NIFLoveBomb
To cite Wikipedia, Amin’s “organisation claim that British relations with Israel could ‘damage Britain’s relationships with 1.5 billion Muslims worldwide, including those in Britain.’ and calls on the party to be more sympathetic towards Iran’s nuclear ambitions.” [5]
Melanie Phillips, a columnist for the Daily Mail and Spectator magazine, has said of its report An Unquiet World: A Response, that “The recent paper written for the Tories by the Conservative Muslim Forum is a deeply troubling document. Set up to provide a dialogue with Britain’s Muslims and advise on tackling Islamist extremism, the group merely demonstrated depressingly that it shares many of the culturally belligerent attitudes driving that extremism.”[1]
Nile Gardiner in the National Review Online criticized the same report, suggesting that it “openly appeases Islamic radicalism.” Gardiner said in the same article that, “The establishment of the Conservative Muslim Forum is a dangerous flirtation with Islamic extremism that should be brought to an end.”[2]
A. Millar in The Brussels Journal has remarked, “A radical form of Islam is on the rise in Britain. It is facilitated by sharia courts, and, in my personal opinion, by the Conservative Muslim Forum.”[3]
In other news, as reported on Front Page Mag, alongside Alisa Doctoroff  “other NIF donors, such as Peter Ascoli, emanate from famous families who have a long history of Jewish animosity towards Israel. Peter’s grandfather, Julius Rosenwald, was Chairman & President of Sears, the largest retailer in America, whose biographer noted, “Unlike many of his contemporaries in the Jewish community, he had no interest in Zionism, feeling that a homeland in Israel had nothing to offer American Jews, who had already found a land of opportunity in which to flourish and grow.”

UK's first 'anti-Islamisation' rally dwarfed by counter-demo
Newcastle (United Kingdom) (AFP) - An estimated 375 people turned out for the Germany-based PEGIDA movement's first demonstration in Britain on Saturday, but were outnumbered by a 2,000-strong crowd of counter-protesters, police said.

PEGIDA has drawn large crowds in Germany to protest against what it calls the "Islamisation" of Europe, and small demonstrations have also taken place in Austria and Sweden.
Police in the city of Newcastle, northeast England, said five men were arrested "for isolated incidents" but insisted both the PEGIDA march and the Newcastle Unites protest passed off smoothly.
The five men, aged between 17 and 54, were arrested for alleged offences including assault, breach of the peace and for being drunk and disorderly.
Extra police had been deployed in the city, which was also hosting a Premier League football match between Newcastle United and Aston Villa, and there were some angry confrontations as officers kept the two protests apart.
One steward said there was a brief scuffle involving members of far-right groups which temporarily damaged PEGIDA's PA system. Some people attending held up flags of the xenophobic National Front group.
Police Chief Superintendent Laura Young said: "Both demonstrations passed without any problems."

PEGIDA's spokeswoman in Britain, Marion Rogers, earlier insisted that the group was not racist or against Muslims.
"It's about integration. We are not anti-Islam. We are not here to split up any communities," she told the BBC.
"We've invited Muslims to join us against extremism, extremism of any kind. I don't think it's wrong to stand up to terrorism. Is that hate?"
PEGIDA -- which stands for the Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West -- drew up to 25,000 people in German street rallies last month.
Among those attending the counter-rally in Newcastle was left-wing firebrand lawmaker George Galloway.
"It is absolutely extraordinary that a German organisation sets up in the UK -- it's not as if there is a lack of right-wing nutter organisations here," he said.
"They have got to be opposed, wherever they are."
The English Defence League, a homegrown British group that protested against the perceived threat from Islamic extremism, held a number of protests throughout 2013, which often ended in clashes with anti-fascist demonstrators.
But the group has lost momentum since its leader Tommy Robinson quit in October that year, saying he could no longer keep "extremist elements" in the group at bay.

UK: 3 missing Muslim schoolgirls have entered Syria
Three good girls — three Muslim schoolgirls — all well off, all well educated, “straight-A students” from a highly regarded London school. So what happened? They became religious, devout. Three Muslim girls, moderates until … they weren’t.
How will Obama and his administration of quislings and clowns explain this? These girls were neither poor, illiterate, hopeless or from some cave-like country. None of Obama’s pale and pathetic excuses for jihad make any sense. How long can the US government continue to deny reality? How many dead Americans is it going to take before the American people demand accountability of this reckless, dangerous President?
“UK police believe 3 missing schoolgirls have entered Syria,” By AP, February 24, 2015
LONDON — Police investigating the disappearance of three British schoolgirls said Tuesday they believe the teenagers are no longer in Turkey and have crossed into Syria.

The girls, aged 15 to 16, disappeared from their London homes Feb. 17 and boarded a flight to Istanbul in Turkey. Authorities believe the girls could be on their way to join the Islamic State group.
The case underlines fears that growing numbers of young women in Britain and Europe are lured by online propaganda to join extremists and become “jihadi brides.”
Security officials say at least 500 Britons have traveled to Syria to fight with extremists, often via Turkey. Experts estimate about 50 are female.
The three girls in the latest case have all been described as “straight-A students” from a highly regarded London school. The families of Shamima Begum, 15, Kadiza Sultana, 16, and Amira Abase, 15, have implored them to return home.
“They appear to have been induced to join a terrorist group that carries out the most hideous violence and believes girls should be married at 9 and women should not leave the home,” Prime Minister David Cameron said Monday.
And why not? Muhammad married his favorite wife Aisha when she was of the tender age of 6 and consummated his marriage to her when she was 9.
As officials continued searching for the teenagers, a top Turkish official complained that British officials waited three days before seeking help in the case, losing valuable time.
Turkey’s deputy prime minister said the girls arrived in Istanbul as tourists, and British authorities did not share enough information for Turkey to act quickly.
“It is a condemnable act, a shameful act that a country like Britain … did not follow (the girls) closely,” Bulent Arinc told reporters in Ankara, the capital. “They woke up three days after the fact to notify us.”
“We don’t have a mechanism that allows us to question or read the minds of tourists,” he added.
The Metropolitan Police disputed that account, however, saying Tuesday that they notified the Turkish embassy in London a day after the girls went missing. Police from both countries are working together to investigate the case, the force added.
A fourth girl from the school where the missing girls studied disappeared in December and was thought to have left for Syria.
Police said detectives investigating that case spoke to the three girls at the time, but there was nothing to suggest they were at risk of radicalization.

There’s a Muslim baby boom in the UK and it’s going to hit the ballot box
A study of demographic changes (pdf) in Britain’s Muslim population should be required reading for Britain’s would-be leaders. In short, the existing policy of “non-engagement” isn’t going to work for much longer.
What the country is seeing is a Muslim baby boom: a group of people getting to childbearing age, and all having kids at the same time. A recent report by the Muslim Council of Britain (pdf) notes that while Muslims make up just 4.8% of the population, the share of school children who are Muslim is around 8.1%, according to the latest census data. As such, Muslims in Britain skew younger than the general population:


Britain’s politicians would do well to take note: this is a fast-growing new generation of voters. British Muslims aged 18 or above are eligible to vote in the May general election. Those aged 13 or above in 2014 will be eligible to vote the next time around. And the youngest children of current voting-age Muslims will not be able to cast a ballot for a while, but they will be brought up by parents at the the sharp end of debates about immigration, identity, and the link between Islam and extremism.
Up to now, some say, Muslims have been ignored by those in power, despite their fast-growing numbers. In January, Baroness Sayeeda Warsi, a former member of prime minister David 


Cameron’s cabinet who resigned over the government’s policy on Gaza, attacked the current and former governments for what she described as six years of non-engagement with British Muslims.

Cameron has already been criticized for failing to meet with Muslim leaders in the way he does with other community groups. Worries over the radicalization of young people after the Arab Spring led a government minister to send a letter to more than 1,000 Muslim leaders on the topic of countering extremism. But it was seen as a heavy-handed and out of tune: “We know that acts of extremism are not representative of Islam; but we need to show what is,” it read.

The Muslim Council of Britain produced its report about the UK’s Muslim population to dispel myths about the community. In a recent survey, the average Brit thought that more than 20% of the population is Muslim, when in reality is around 5%, up from 3% in 2001. “Demographic alarmism is scaremongering,” the council said.
It also noted that, while it is true that Muslims are one of the UK’s fastest-growing groups, it is far from a homogenous bloc. British Muslims are ethnically diverse, and comprise first-generation immigrants and citizens from birth.
There are other demographic realities that could make Muslims less of a political force than their numbers suggest in the next few elections. The young are notoriously apathetic when it comes to politics. Perhaps worse, Britain’s Muslim community lacks pensioners, a group whose reliable voting patterns win them outsized pre-election favors. Muslims might be studying, working, raising families, and buying homes, but they’d better hurry up and get old as well.

UK Muslim Teen Found Guilty Of Plotting To Behead Soldier: ‘we should do a 9/11, 7/7 and a Woolwich all in one day’
Tell us, President Obama, if it wasn’t Islam that motivated this Muslim convert to behead, then what was it?

“Teen Found Guilty Of Plotting To Behead Soldier,” SKY News, February 20, 2015
In letters found at his London home, Brusthom Ziamani had written “we should do a 9/11, 7/7 and a Woolwich all in one day”
By Mark White, Home Affairs Correspondent
A teenage Muslim convert who idolised the killers of Fusilier Lee Rigby has been found guilty of planning his own attack on members of the British military.
Brusthom Ziamani, 19, was arrested by counter terrorism officers on 19 August last year, carrying a rucksack containing a 12-inch knife, a large hammer and an Islamic flag.

He later told a security officer at Wandsworth Prison in London that he had been on his way to “behead a British soldier at an army barracks and hold the severed head in the air” when he was arrested.
Ziamani, from Camberwell, southeast London, had been on police bail at the time he was stopped with the weapons, having been held almost two months earlier for posting extremist messages on Facebook.
Ziamani stated ‘we should do a 9/11, 7/7 and a Woolwich all in one day’
At the time of his first arrest, on 27 June, officers searched his belongings and found a letter he had written to his parents. One passage stated “we should do a 9/11, 7/7 and a Woolwich all in one day”.
He also told his parents of his intention to fight jihad and wage war against the British Government.
1/5
Gallery: Ziamani: ‘This Is Islamic State Of Ireland And Britain’
It read: “You want war, you got it. British soldiers heads will be removed and burned. U cannot defeat the Muslims, we love to die the way you love to live.”
The Old Bailey heard how Ziamani had been brought up as a strict Jehovah’s Witness.

He converted to Islam at 15, but did not practise the religion until March last year when he began attending his local mosque and associating with a group of radical Muslims led by the preacher Anjem Choudary.
The court was told that his parents threw him out of the house when they learned of his conversion to Islam.
He became increasingly extreme in the messages he was posting online, condemning Jews and other non-believers, demanding Sharia law and calling on others to fight jihad.
He wrote of his admiration for Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale, the two men who had murdered Lee Rigby outside Woolwich barracks in southeast London a year earlier.
Forensic examination of his mobile phone also discovered that he had searched online for information on army cadet and other military bases in his local area.
Despite this and his increasingly extremist rantings, the authorities decided not to prosecute Ziamani last June.
Instead, he was placed on a “Prevent” anti-extremism programme.
1/3
Police have released images of material shown in court on 10 February.
Gallery: Knife Shown To Terror Trial Jury
But that intervention failed to have the desired effect, and he continued to post extremist and offensive messages online.

On the morning of 19 August last year, he visited his ex-girlfriend in southeast London and told her he was going to attack a member of the military.
She gave evidence anonymously in court, claiming the defendant had opened his rucksack to show her the knife, hammer and Islamic flag he was carrying.
She told the jury: “I asked why he had these and he said, ‘Me and the brothers are planning a terrorist attack’.
“I said, ‘What, like a bomb or something?’, and he said, ‘No, a soldier or member of the government’.”
He was arrested by police later that day, purely by chance, as officers had been planning to detain him for the extremist messages he was continuing to post on Facebook.
Ziamani has been remanded in custody at the Old Bailey, and will be sentenced on 20 March.
Richard Walton, from the Metropolitan Police’s Counter Terrorism Command, said: “This case starkly illustrates one of the threats we currently face in the UK.
“Ziamani was an impressionable young man who became radicalised then rapidly developed an extremist, violent mindset. Over a series of months, he ultimately developed a desire to carry out a terrorist attack on British soldiers.”

Sharia UK: Pork is removed from school menus across London
Step after heavy, dreadful step, Britain skulks into oblivion. It’s a death trap, it’s a suicide march.

They throw the Jews in for good measure, but let me assure you, this antisemitic country wouldn’t give the Jews the dirt off their shoes. Jews do not demand that ham or bacon be taken off the menus anywhere. They just don’t eat it. It’s that simple.
This is crushing submission to Muslim demands. Leave the Jews out of it, cowards. Jews are fleeing the UK in droves because of the violent hate of Muslim Jew-haters and their leftist lapdogs.

They throw the Jews in to somehow obscure their craven cowardice and submission to Islam.

Another victory for Islamic supremacists and sharia enforcers.
“Pork is removed from school menus across London borough”, The Times of London, February 14, 2015 (thanks to Abhijit)
Pork is off the menu at all primary schools across one London borough because of problems checking the diets of Jewish and Muslim children.
Bacon, ham, pork chops and sausages have not been served in primary schools in Islington, north London, since 2011. Schools found it too time-consuming and expensive to ensure young children did not accidentally eat proscribed products.
A council spokesman said: “Children, some as young as four, of different religious and ethnic backgrounds may not know which foods contain pork ……

The protestors, many of whom were divided into groups of men and women, gathered just yards from the Cenotaph which remembers Britain’s war dead, and blocked half of Whitehall as they demonstated.
It comes weeks after two terrorists attacked the offices of Charlie Hebdo, the Paris-based satirical magazine which had published images of the Prophet Muhammad, killing 12 staff and wounding 11 others.

Watch how the Charlie Hebdo Paris attacks unfolded
The protest was organised by the Muslim Action Forum, which said that the Charlie Hebdo cartoons had helped “sow the seeds of hatred” and had damaged community relations.
One young child, who appeared to be under the age of 10, stood next to a placard displaying the message: “Charlie and the abuse factory”.
A series of Muslim leaders addressed the crowd from a platform outside the Ministry of Defence, with the message “Be careful with Muhammad”.

The meeting was organised by the Muslim Action Forum, which was handing out leaflets about the demonstration on Whitehall.
The leaflet said: “The recent re-publishing of the cartoons, caricatures and depictions of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) by Charlie Hebdo magazine and other publishers is a stark reminder that freedom of speech if regularly utilised to insult personalities that others consider sacred.
“Such actions are deliberating insulting and provoking to Muslims worldwide as British citizens, we believe that these publications will continue to ‘sow the seeds of hatred’ and damage community relations.
“In an already fragile world we need to move from actions of incitement, hatred and provocation to civility, consideration and respect.”
In an apparent reference to the attacks on Charlie Hebdo magazine the leaflet added that “regrettably some Muslims” had “taken the un-Islamic path of human destruction”.
It added: “The vast majority of Muslims worldwide shall not denigrate their historical and current values by reciprocating hatred.
“Muslims shall call upon their deep spiritual strength and take the moral high ground by inviting the world to civility in any form of expression, dialogue, discourse and debate.”


The Forum delivered a petition to 10 Downing Street signed by over 100,000 British Muslims to highlight the view that the majority of Muslims worldwide call for 'Global Civility' rather than destruction of human life.
The group also expressed "deep regret" at the Paris terror attacks, which included a massacre at Charlie Hebdo, saying they were a "violation of Islamic law".
Shaykh Tauqir Ishaq, a senior spokesman for the Forum, said "Perpetual mistakes by extremists, either by cold-blooded killers or uncivilised expressionists, cannot be the way forward for a civilised society.
"The peace-loving majority of people must become vociferous in promoting global civility and responsible debate. At this time of heightened tension and emotion, it is crucial that both sides show restraint to prevent further incidents of this nature occurring."
Shaykh Noor Siddiqi, another Forum representative, said "The actions of the UK media in not publishing the cartoons is highly appreciated by British Muslims and we hope that this kind of self-restraint and mutual respect will ultimately lead to a harmonious society."
Across the street on Whitehall a handful of counter demonstrators holding a Britain First banner gathered. Scotland Yard said it was not aware of any arrests during the protest.

Children removed from Christian parents

Children taken from born-again couple accused of being in a cult
 
Social workers have removed two adopted children from a Christian couple "demonised" because of their beliefs. "Their views on disciplining the children and taking them to church were wholly disrespected by the social services and now tragically their children have been taken away," Andrea Williams told the Sunday Times. She went on to say that such cases are quietly becoming more common. The couple is being supported by the Christian Legal Centre.

BORN-AGAIN Christians whose adopted children have been taken into care say they are being persecuted for their religious beliefs by social workers.
In one case, parents say social workers accused them of causing emotional abuse with their strict parenting methods, which included smacking a child’s hand and punishing children for swearing by putting soap on their lips.
They claim they were described as “cult” members by social workers despite their church following the Alpha Course, the dominant strand of evangelism in Britain, followed by 20m people worldwide, including the adventurer Bear Grylls.
Andrea Williams, chief executive of the campaign group Christian Concern, said: “We are seeing a worrying trend whereby Christian parents are being treated with suspicion because of their faith.

'Gender-abortion' cases move forward
 
Two doctors filmed offering 'gender-abortion' will both now face criminal charges in the Crown Court thanks to a rare private prosecution brought by Aisling Hubert and supported by the Christian Legal Centre. On Monday, Birmingham Magistrates' Court granted a summons against Dr Palaniappan Rajmohan and ordered him to appear before the Crown Court in May. Another doctor, Dr Prabha Sivaraman is due to appear at Manchester Crown Court next Friday. 
A doctor who was filmed offering to abort a child simply because she was a girl has been ordered to appear before the Crown Court to face a criminal charge.
Dr Palaniappan Rajmohan is to face the criminal charge, after Birmingham Magistrates' Court yesterday (26 JAN) granted a summons and ordered him to appear before the Crown Court on 21st May 2015.
 
Evidence
Dr Rajmohan was filmed offering 'gender-abortion' during an undercover investigation by the Telegraph in 2012.
However after a lengthy investigation the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) decided not to prosecute, even though it found enough evidence for a realistic prospect of conviction. The CPS claimed that a prosecution was 'not in the public interest’.

Help oppose sexualisation in schools
 
It's not too late to join hundreds of others in supporting a petition launched by Birmingham parents calling for the controversial CHIPS programme to be dropped in primary schools. The group  says that activities in the 'Challenging Homophobia in Primary Schools' programme involve small children creating a "wedding scene featuring two men". Parents who have raised concerns have met with "intimidation and threats" from some schools, the group says.

Titchmarsh condemns 'young sex' professor
TV personality Alan Titchmarsh has denounced a Winchester University professor for comments he made about enjoying sex with teenagers. Campaign group 'Because Children Matter' alerted Mr Titchmarsh to Professor Eric Anderson's statements, which included claiming that the "damage that’s caused by child molestation is socially constructed", when it was announced that Mr Titchmarsh was to be the next Chancellor of the University. 

Boast
Eric Anderson, 46, is Winchester University’s professor of Sport, Masculinities and Sexualities. He made the incendiary comments during a lecture at Oxford University in 2011.
The professor boasted that he has had sex with “easily over a thousand people”, going on to say: “I like sex with 16, 17, 18 year old boys particularly, it’s getting harder for me to get them but I'm still finding them…
“I hope between the age of 43 and the time I die I can have sex with another thousand, that would be awesome, even if I have to buy them, of course, not a problem, you pay for all kinds of entertainment and pleasure.”
 
Reconsider
With Mr Titchmarsh due to be appointed as Winchester University’s chancellor later this year, a campaign group called Because Children Matter contacted him, urging him to reconsider accepting the appointment.
Alan Craig, the group’s director wrote: “In the light of [Mr Anderson’s statements] we ask that you do not associate your good name with the university, and that you reconsider accepting your appointment as Chancellor.”

Christian schools to challenge Ofsted
 
Two Christian schools in the North East of England may take legal action against Ofsted after being downgraded by inspectors. Durham Free School and Grindon Hall Christian School in Sunderland argue that new rules requiring schools to promote 'British values' including 'tolerance' are partly to blame.  It was revealed this week that Grindon Hall topped the A level results tabled in the city. A local campaign is underway to challenge the inspection findings.
“British values”
Both schools have argued that new rules requiring schools to promote “British values” including “tolerance”, are partly to blame for the schools being downgraded.
Education Secretary Nicky Morgan brought the rules in last year in the wake of the Trojan Horse scandal involving infiltration by radical Muslim groups into schools in Birmingham.
Other Christian schools have also been downgraded since the new measures were introduced.
Criticism
Staff and parents at Durham Free School have criticised Ofsted’s approach. Deborah Finch told reporters that her 11-year-old daughter, Grace, had been “asked whether she knew any lesbians and whether any family members had gay friends”.

That Time Badass Feminist Queen Elizabeth II Gave Saudi Arabia's King a Lesson in Power
Great Britain's Queen Elizabeth II is known to have a wicked sense of humor, and some mean driving skills


One day back in 1998, she deployed both 
spectacularly to punk Saudi Arabia's late King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz. Back then, Abdullah was a Saudi crown prince visiting Balmoral, the vast royal estate in Scotland. The Queen had offered him a tour of the grounds—here's what happened next, according to former British ambassador to Saudi Arabia Sir Sherard Cowper-Coles:
The royal Land Rovers were drawn up in front of the castle. As instructed, the Crown Prince climbed into the front seat of the Land Rover, with his interpreter in the seat behind. To his surprise, the Queen climbed into the driving seat, turned the ignition and drove off. Women are not—yet—allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia, and Abdullah was not used to being driven by a woman, let alone a queen. His nervousness only increased as the queen, an Army driver in wartime, accelerated the Land Rover along the narrow Scottish estate roads, talking all the time. Through his interpreter, the Crown Prince implored the Queen to slow down and concentrate on the road ahead.
Royal custom discourages repeating what the Queen says in private, Cowper-Coles explained, but the anecdote was corroborated by Abdullah, and became, in the diplomat's words, "too funny not to repeat."
Abdullah went on to cultivate the image of a reformer as king. One thing he didn't change, despite the Queen's badass stunt: women still can't drive in Saudi Arabia.

“London man, former soccer player fight for Islamic State,” Times of Israel, February 2, 2015:
A Portuguese father of four and a former soccer player, both converts to Islam who lived in London, are reportedly prominent foreign fighters in the ranks of the Islamic State terror group.
Nevo Saraiva, 28, who moved to the UK more than 10 years ago, is suspected of being a deputy to the infamous Islamic State member known as Jihadi John, who has appeared in the terror group’s gruesome beheading videos of foreign hostages.
Western security services say Saraiva and at least four other Portuguese immigrants to Britain were involved in the production and distribution of the terror group’s execution videos, London’s Sunday Times newspaper reported.
The report Sunday named one of the other suspects as Fabio Pocas, 22, a former soccer player who arrived in London in 2012 to further his career.
In an interview with Portuguese media, Pocas said he was a “military trainer” and had three wives in Syria, including a Dutch teenage jihadi bride.
Saraiva, too, is believed to have a number of jihadi wives, including an Australian woman, with whom he has at least four children.
Scotland Yard suspects Saraiva had advance information about IS hostages and the group’s plans to execute at least one of the American journalists it was holding captive, according to the report.
That assessment is based on a number of online activities picked up by security services. According to the report, 39 days before James Foley was murdered, Saraiva tweeted: “Message to America, the Islamic State is making a new movie. Thank u for the actors.”
In August, IS released a video of the killing under the heading “Message to America.” It was the first in a string of gruesome videos showing the beheadings of Western hostages.
The tweet was preceded by a talkback Saraiva wrote under his real name on an article in the Guardian, reading, “America [h]as run out of options. Anyway, the Islamic State will sort them out, don’t worry.”
A security source told the paper: “He has an important position, influential inside the organization, and is not just a foot soldier who went to fight and die in Syria.”
Security services believe he is linked to Jihadi John due to the similar weaponry they carried, photos of which were available on Saraiva’s Twitter profile.
Saraiva was believed to have left for Syria in 2012, moving up the ranks of the terror group to become a senior member. He converted to Islam from Catholicism in the UK, and is suspected of having recruited at least 10 British nationals for IS, sending them to Syria via safe houses in Lisbon, according to Portuguese media.
The Sunday Times and Expresso, a Lisbon-based newspaper, reported that the UK’s Scotland Yard had contacted one of Saraiva’s brothers who lives in Portugal about his jihadist activists.
Pocas, the soccer player, has for his part vowed to return to Europe to wage jihad.
He told the Portuguese paper Sabado in an interview that he would come back “with the flag of tawheed [the black banner associated with Islamists] in one hand and my weapon in the other”.
“Killing is easy,” he said . “And it’s even easier to kill those who kill Muslims… I’m capable of killing anyone who fights against Islam.”
Pocas said his parents “obviously don’t understand” his actions.

Sir Winston Churchill 50th Anniversary of the death of a Hero a great leader 24 January 1965 a fitting state funeral for a commoner. 

Winston Churchill: Chartwell memories
23 January 2015 Last updated at 16:07 GMT
Fifty years ago flags were flown at half-mast at Chartwell, near Westerham in Kent, as the death of Sir Winston Churchill was mourned.
To mark the anniversary, his grandson, a gardener, and a carnival queen have been sharing their memories of the war-time prime minister.
Churchill's Kent home is hosting an exhibition of personal items from his family, including the last ever photograph taken just before he died, aged 90.
The exhibition also includes family invitations to his state funeral held in London six days after his death.


Winston Churchill predicted the future -- many times
 November 30, 1874 is the birthdate of the greatest statesman in history. Presidents Eisenhower, Kennedy and Reagan deemed him so. Just his indomitable leadership in World War II rallying a beleaguered Britain to triumph over Nazi tyranny would alone earn him this unique distinction.

But the world is not aware that Churchill was a modern Nostradamus in his prophetic wisdom. Among other things, he predicted two World Wars and the Cold War. Even today’s headlines are the stuff of predictions he made close to a century ago. In 1905, he foresaw the creation of the Israeli State. Churchill was the first non-Jewish Zionist. Twelve years before the Balfour Declaration, in 1917, Churchill called for a Jewish State. It was not as if he represented New York’s Lower East Side or Miami populated by Jews.
Then in 1921, in a speech to the House of Commons, he spoke of a militant Islam sect, the Wahabis, more violent than any in history, which would kill their own sisters for wearing the wrong attire. These fierce zealots would terrorize the West with bomb-carrying Jihadists who would burn embassies and destroy buildings by their passion to sacrifice their lives for guarantee of Islam heaven. Winston Churchill II would read his grandfather’s speech to President George W. Bush in the White House in 2007. If Churchill didn’t exactly predict 9/11, he described its radical extremist perpetrators.
President Nixon once told me that Churchill was the only leader who seemed to have a crystal ball. He had “the mind of an historian and courage of a soldier.” A scholar of history, he could see patterns replicating themselves. Like a soldier, Churchill would risk political death by telling the people what they didn’t want to hear. Spineless politicians or cover-your-ass bureaucrats will never state the ugly truths. Churchill, however, didn’t worry about repercussions. He didn’t talk in euphemisms or evasions. He delivered the unvarnished facts.
The world is not aware that Churchill was a modern Nostradamus in his prophetic wisdom.
The English did not want to hear, after the decimation of a whole generation in World War I, the need to arm for another war threat by the Germans in the 1930’s.

A decade later, Americans and British turned deaf ears to Churchill’s warning that their recent ally, the Soviet Union threatened the democracies of Europe. Even The Wall Street Journal—no left-wing newspaper—denounced Churchill’s Iron Curtain Address. Eleanor Roosevelt called Churchill a “war monger.”
In that same year, 1946, Churchill told Europeans gathering in an assembly in Zurich that Germany, whose armies had only recently devastated their countries, had to be welcomed back into its community for the future prosperity of Europe. Boos accompanied his unwelcome message. The Europeans were appalled that their World War II hero would suggest such an idea.
For those who ask what relevance Churchill’s predictions have to today’s world, they should keep in mind that he predicted the Energy Crisis in 1929. He warned that the West needed new sources of fuel to escape from being beholden to the oil oligarchies of the Middle East. And then in 1957, this writer heard Churchill state that the U.N. was a feckless organization, maimed by a congenital deformity—the Soviet veto— and that it was increasingly dominated by one-party autocratic states. One only has to note President Calderon who stuffs ballot boxes and jails dissidents in Columbia while his country serves on the U.N. Human Rights Commission; or even worse, President Assad of Syria who is slaughtering thousands of his citizens while his country joins Columbia on that Human Rights Commission that is attacking the U.S. for, among other things, using capital punishment and the many African-Americans serving in prison.
On his 138th birthday, the world should not only recognize Churchill’s championship of freedom, but also study his many predictions that still endanger our liberties and freedoms.



By John Simpson
World Affairs Editor
Winston Churchill giving V-for-victory sign
On Thursday, the Magazine looked at the greatest controversies of Winston Churchill's career. Here, the BBC's world affairs editor examines how an all-too-human politician became a great wartime prime minister.

In 2002 the BBC broadcast a series called 100 Greatest Britons. After each programme in which particular figures were proposed and examined - they were mostly but not exclusively the usual suspects, such as Darwin, Shakespeare and Elizabeth I - viewers were invited to vote.
In the end, there was no doubt about their verdict - Sir Winston Churchill was the greatest Briton.
The case for him is a powerful one, of course. He was first a government minister in 1908, and occupied most of the top jobs in politics during half a century. He finally retired in 1955, having served as prime minister for a total of nine years.
But it was his extraordinary leadership in World War Two that marked him out. Bold, brave and tireless in his resolve to take on the might of Nazi Germany, he inspired a nervous and hesitant Britain through his sheer energy and force of personality to defy stark odds and never give in.
The entire world's history would have been different if he hadn't come to power in Britain in 1940.
Still, Churchill made huge mistakes in his long political life - Gallipoli, the Black and Tans in Ireland, backing the use of poison gas.
As a particularly inexperienced chancellor of the exchequer in the 1920s, he put Britain back onto the gold standard. John Maynard Keynes, the great economist, believed this was a major factor in bringing about the Great Depression.
In the 1930s, in the political wilderness, he was an angry opponent of Indian nationalism, and his language about Gandhi verged on racism.
He stubbornly supported Edward VIII during the Abdication Crisis of 1936, though he was manifestly unsuited to the job.
Wartime poster of Churchill, reading "Let us go forward together"
There were several major strategic mistakes in WW2.

After it, Churchill was old and ill, yet he returned to lead the government from 1951-55, refusing for a long time to stand down.
It's a powerful litany of failure and misjudgement, and a leading academic at Cambridge University, Dr Nigel Knight, has examined it carefully.
"Churchill was fundamentally flawed. This was shown in his military strategy: Gallipoli in World War 1 was replicated in the Norwegian and North African and 'soft underbelly of Europe' campaigns during World War Two."
Nevertheless at the supreme moment, in May 1940, Churchill got it absolutely right.
During the 1930s he had visited Hitler's Germany and seen for himself the potential for evil there. Few people, either in the UK or the US, wanted to know, and he often had a problem selling his articles about the evils of Nazism to the press.
And of course once he was in power, his superb speeches inspired the country and kept it going.
He never actually quite said 'History will be kind to me, for I intend to write it', but that turned out to be the case”
Boris Johnson, the Conservative mayor of London, who recently published a book about Churchill, believes that it was Churchill's characteristic determination to go and find things out for himself that was a mark of his greatness.
"It's an illusion to think he was just a rhetorician, a guy who skated over the issues. He was deeply immersed in all the detail, and all the technicalities. And that helped him to get the right answer."
In 1938-39 British public opinion, as measured by the polling organisation Mass Observation, was strongly against Neville Chamberlain's policy of appeasement.
But Chamberlain's political position was unassailable, and he forced it through. Even after war had broken out in September 1939 the most likely outcome was that Britain would do a deal with Hitler and stand aside.
However, Chamberlain couldn't keep Churchill out of the Cabinet. He was now back again at the centre of power.
Churchill in car, 1950s
Churchill leaving parliament in 1964 - he remained an MP almost until the end of his life
As Hitler smashed his way through Western Europe, Churchill remained utterly faithful to Chamberlain. He forbade his supporters from leaking hostile stories to the press.

Eventually Chamberlain, his policy in ruins, was obliged to resign. He had no moral alternative but to put Churchill forward as his replacement.
Churchill was a decent and honourable man, as well as a charming one, and it was these qualities, not just his famous defiance, that made him prime minister.
He never actually quite said "History will be kind to me, for I intend to write it", but that turned out to be the case. His historical works were so good, they earned him the Nobel Prize for literature.
No other British prime minister can remotely match the scope of Churchill's achievement. When he died in 1965 the historian Sir Arthur Bryant said: "The age of giants is over."
Bryant was right - and yet that, in a way, is a measure of Churchill's success. Ever since he destroyed Hitler's despotism, our political leaders haven't needed to be giants.
They can just be ordinary.

CHURCH OF ENGLAND TO BLEND CHRISTIANITY WITH PAGANISM TO ATTRACT SPIRITUALISTS
stonehenge-solstic_2596384b

Stonehenge Summer Solstice 2013
Here’s a new twist on church growth: creating a pagan atmosphere and branding campaign for New Age spiritualists in order to increase the number of bodies in the pews. The Church of England is actually training its ministers to create “a pagan church where Christianity [is] very much in the center” to attract spiritual believers.

That means changing the Anglican church doctrine to make it more inclusive for people of alternative beliefs. The Church of England admits that its motive is to retain congregation numbers who have embraced paganism. The Church Mission Society, which is training ministers to “break new ground” in order to get spiritual people into churches.  If you’ve come from a Seeker-Driven model, that might actually sound like a good thing. Get them in the doors and tell them about Jesus, right? But make no mistake; that is not what is happening here. The Jesus the Church of England is re-creating is not the Jesus of the Bible.
A little update on the Church of England: It recently gave up its fight against gay marriage, and also went as far as to bless civil partnerships.
The Church Mission Society’s Andrea Campenale, said: “Nowadays people, they want to feel something; they want to have some sense of experience. We live in reflective England where there’s much more of a focus on ourselves. I think that is something we can bring in dialogue with the Christian society.”
The Church Mission Society’s webpage advertising their pioneer training scheme states: “Wherever in the world the mission of Jesus goes on, the church needs pioneer mission leaders to break new ground.”
This news release was actually coordinated a couple of days ago to align with the Summer Solstice, with events lining up around the celebrations at Stonehenge which recently underwent a multimillion dollar transformation. A couple of days ago 20,000 spiritual seekers celebrated the summer solstice there. Pagans and druids gathered to celebrate at the historic monument.

Britain's MI5 chief warns al Qaeda in Syria planning mass attacks on West
By Guy Faulconbridge
LONDON (Reuters) - Al Qaeda militants in Syria are plotting attacks to inflict mass casualties in the West, possibly against transport systems or "iconic targets", the head of Britain's MI5 Security Service said on Thursday.

Speaking after gunmen killed 12 people in an assault on a French satirical newspaper, MI5 boss Andrew Parker warned a strike on the United Kingdom was highly likely.
"A group of core al Qaeda terrorists in Syria is planning mass casualty attacks against the West," Director General Parker said in a rare public speech at MI5 headquarters in London. His last public speech was in October 2013.

In the speech, planned before the killings in Paris, Parker said seasoned al Qaeda militants in Syria aimed to "cause large-scale loss of life, often by attacking transport systems or iconic targets" in the West.
Al Qaeda killed nearly 3,000 people by attacking the United States with hijacked passenger planes on September 11, 2001. Militants inspired by the group killed 52 commuters in London on July 7, 2005 with suicide bombs.
Al Qaeda's leader Osama bin Laden was killed by U.S. special forces in 2011, and the threat posed by the network to the West seemed to recede in recent years.
But spies in Europe and the United States have been troubled that al Qaeda militants from Pakistan have appeared in wartorn Syria, in what some intelligence analysts say could be part of a plot to mount a major attack against the West.

Thursday's stark warning from one of the West's most influential spymasters mirrors a growing concern among Western political leaders and their Arab allies about the threat from the cauldron of militant groups in Syria and Iraq.
"DARK PLACES"
Parker said around 600 British extremists had traveled to Syria, many joining the militant group which calls itself "Islamic State" and has taken control of swathes of Iraq and Syria.
The group, an offshoot of al Qaeda, has beheaded two U.S. journalists and an American and two British aid workers in an effort to put pressure on a U.S.-led international coalition bombing its fighters in Syria.
Islamic State militants in Syria were plotting attacks on Britain and making sophisticated use of social media to incite British nationals to carry out violence, Parker said.
MI5, established in 1909 to counter German espionage ahead of World War One, had stopped three potentially deadly "terrorist plots" against the United Kingdom in recent months, he said.
"We face a very serious level of threat that is complex to combat and unlikely to abate significantly for some time," said Parker, who has argued strongly for more surveillance powers to spy on militant communications on the Internet.
He said that the security services needed to have access to such communications.
"My sharpest concern as Director General of MI5 is the growing gap between the increasingly challenging threat and the decreasing availability of capabilities to address it," he said.
Twitter and Facebook are so important to militants that technology giants should give security services greater access to their networks, the head of Britain's GCHQ eavesdropping agency said last year.
"The dark places from where those who wish us harm can plot and plan are increasing," Parker said. "We need to be able to access communications and obtain relevant data on those people when we have good reason."

RADICAL CLERIC: ‘FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION DOES NOT EXTEND TO INSULTING’ MUHAMMAD
In light of the Charlie Hebdo massacre, Islamic preacher Anjem Choudary used it to blast free speech. He did not condemn the attacks, but suggested more laws to ban images of Mohammed.

Muslims love the Messenger Muhammad (saw) more than their parents, children and even themselves! Why don’t people understand? #ParisShooting

He was a spokesman “for al-Muhajiroun, a radical group now banned in England.” He shot to fame in the United States in August when he engaged in a fight with FOX News host Sean Hannity after the Islamic State murdered American journalist James Foley.
“If the Americans bomb and murder hundreds of thousands of people and they torture people and they continue to do so in Guantanamo Bay, obviously this will have repercussions,” he said.

Choudary also told Hannity that “Sharia will be implemented in America, it’s coming,” and “Sharia is coming to a place near you.” A few weeks before the appearance, he admitted the pro-Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) protesters in London were his students. He called them “very good chaps” despite their public support for the terrorist group. In November, he demanded the British government “return his passport and grant him safe passage to Syria, so that he can see what like
 is like under Sharia law.”

UK Islamist: 'I Want To See Every Single Woman In This Country Covered From Head To Toe'

http://www.israelvideonetwork.com/the-muslim-plan-for-implementing-sharia-law-in-america-just-got-revealed/
The Muslim Plan for Implementing Sharia Law in America Just Got Revealed
Well, why shouldn’t they? Who’s stopping them?
There is something extremely unnerving about Moslems enforcing their “Sharia law” in democratic countries. When this East London Sharia law-enforcer tells teh female broadcaster to “Cover up. Wear the Hijab.” her reponse is, “That’s absurd.”
Is it? What if he threatened her with violence? A Sharia court ruling? Why is Great Britain is allowing this to go on in East London and what impact will it have on the rest of the Western world? Do we really want to wait and see?

The Islamization of Britain in 2014
by Soeren Kern
December 30, 2014 at 5:00 am
http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/4996/britain-islamization
"Britain remains the world's leading recruiting ground for al-Qaeda." — Con Coughlin, Daily Telegraph.

When she sought help from the police and a lawyer, "the family of the defendants were insulted that she had gone to the law. They wanted her back within the family fold... Therefore, it was decided that she should be forced to comply or be killed." — Prosecutor of Ahmed A-Khatib, who murdered his wife for becoming "too westernized."
British school teachers are afraid to teach their students about Christianity out of fear of offending Muslims. — Roger Bolton, BBC Radio 4's Feedback program.
Rather than taking steps to protect British children, police, social workers, teachers... and the media deliberately played down the severity of the crimes [of Muslim sexual grooming gangs] in order to avoid being accused of "Islamophobia" or racism. — From the report "Easy Meat: Multiculturalism, Islam and Child Sex Slavery."
A group of British lawyers launched a website, Sharia Watch UK. The group called Sharia law "Britain's Blind Spot."
After Adebolajo, who murdered and tried to behead British soldier Lee Rigby with a meat cleaver, was given a "whole-life" prison term, his brother said his sibling was the victim of "Islamophobia."
"The problem of honor-based violence and forced marriages in England is "worse than people think." — Claire Phillipson, Wearside Women in Need
The Muslim population of Britain reached 3.4 million in 2014 to become around 5.3% of the overall population of 64 million, according to figures extrapolated from a recent study on the growth of the Muslim population in Europe. In real terms, Britain has the third-largest Muslim population in the European Union, after France and Germany.
Islam and Islam-related issues were omnipresent in Britain during 2014, and can be categorized into four broad themes: 1) Islamic extremism and the security implications of British jihadists in Syria; 2) the continuing spread of Islamic Sharia law in Britain; 3) the sexual exploitation of British children by Muslim gangs; and 4) Muslim integration into British society.
What follows is a chronological review of some of the main stories involving the rise of Islam in Britain during 2014.
In January, an analysis of census data showed that nearly 10% of the babies and toddlers in England and Wales are Muslim. The percentage of Muslims among children under five is almost twice as high as in the general population. By way of comparison, fewer than one in 200 people over the age of 85 are Muslim, an indication of the extent to which the birth rate is changing the religious demographic in Britain.
Also in January, Muslim fundamentalists threatened to behead a fellow British Muslim after he posted an innocuous image of Mohammed and Jesus on his Twitter account. The death threats against Maajid Nawaz, a Liberal Democrat Party candidate for British Parliament, added to the growing number of cases in which Islamists are using intimidation tactics to restrict the free speech rights of fellow Muslims in Europe.
On January 16, a Muslim woman was arrested by counter-terrorism police at Heathrow Airport as she was preparing to board a flight to Turkey. Nawal Masaad, 26, is accused of trying to smuggle £16,500 ($27,000; €20,000) in her underwear to jihadists in Syria. She and her alleged co-conspirator, Amal El-Wahabi, 27—a Moroccan who does not work and claims British social welfare benefits for herself and two young sons—were the first British women to be charged with terrorism offenses linked to the conflict in Syria.
On January 23, the head of Scotland Yard's counter-terrorism unit, Commander Richard Walton, revealed that 14 British minors were arrested on charges linked to the Syrian conflict in January alone, compared to 24 for the whole of 2013. He said it was "almost inevitable" that some fighters would try to mount attacks in Britain upon their return.
On January 16, British Islamist Abu Waleed outlined his vision of an Islamic state in Britain, and called for Christians to be humiliated so that they would convert to Islam. In a video, he said:
"If the Muslim sees a kaffir [non-Muslim] with nice clothes, the kaffir has to take his clothes off and give them to the Muslim. The kaffir, when he walks down the street, he has to wear a red belt around his neck, and he has to have his forehead shaved, and he has to wear two shoes that are different from one another. He [the non-believer] is not allowed to walk on the pavement, he has to walk in the middle of the road, and he has to ride a mule. That is, my dear brothers, the Islamic state."
In Bristol, the city council approved a controversial plan to convert a former comedy club into a mosque. In Cambridgeshire, a Muslim group submitted plans to convert a warehouse into a new mosque. In Cambridge, locals opposed a plan to build a £17.5 million ($28.5 million; €21 million) mega-mosque, claiming it could be "a front for terrorism." In Blackburn, home to nearly 100 mosques, city councilors were urged to reject a plan to open a mosque in a residential neighborhood.
In Southend, local residents celebrated after a four-year battle resulted in the closing of an illegal mosque. In Newton Mearns, south of Glasgow, plans were abandoned to build a mosque within the grounds of a school in one of the most affluent suburbs of Scotland, due to local criticism of the move.
In Catherine-de-Barnes, a tiny village in western central England, local residents objected to plans for a large, Muslim-only cemetery, which will include space for 4,000 followers of Islam to be buried, and 75 parking spaces for visitors. The village has a population of just 613, which means the cemetery could eventually hold six-and-a-half times as many people as Catherine-de-Barnes itself.
In February, official statistics showed that net immigration to the United Kingdom surged to 212,000 in the year ending September 2013, a significant increase from 154,000 in the previous year. The new immigration data cast doubt on a pledge by Prime Minister David Cameron to get net migration—the difference between the number of people entering Britain and those leaving—down to the "tens of thousands" before the general election in May 2015.
Separately, data released by the National Crime Agency showed a 155% rise in British children groomed by sex gangs during 2013.
Also in January, a Muslim extremist who hacked a soldier to death on a London street in May 2013, launched a taxpayer-funded appeal against his murder conviction. Michael Adebolajo, 29, who tried to behead the British soldier Lee Rigby with a meat cleaver, maintained that he should not have been convicted because he is a "soldier of Allah" and therefore Rigby's killing was an act of war rather than premeditated murder.
Adebolajo and his co-defendant, Michael Adebowale, 22, were found guilty by a jury in December 2013, and were sentenced on February 26. Adebolajo was given a "whole-life" prison term and Adebowale was given a minimum term of 45 years. Adebolajo's brother said his sibling was the victim of "Islamophobia."
On February 16, The Sunday Times reported that about 250 British jihadists who went to train and fight in Syria had returned to the UK and were being monitored by the security services. Senior officials said the high number of "returnees"—five times the figure that had been previously reported—underlined the growing danger posed by "extremist tourists" going to the war-torn region. MI5 and police said they feared that "returnees" could be preparing a Mumbai-style gun attack on civilians, possibly in a crowded public place in London.
On February 14, three Muslim vigilantes who terrorized innocent members of the public as the self-styled "Muslim Patrol" were banned from promoting Sharia Law in Britain for a period of five years.
In March, British authorities launched an investigation into the source of a document that purportedly outlined a plot by Muslim fundamentalists to Islamize public schools in England and Wales. The four-page document described a strategy—dubbed Operation Trojan Horse—to oust non-Muslim head teachers and staff at state schools in Muslim neighborhoods and replace them with individuals who would run the schools according to strict Islamic principles.
Also in March, a report entitled, "Easy Meat: Multiculturalism, Islam and Child Sex Slavery," showed how officials in England and Wales were aware of rampant child grooming—the process by which sexual predators befriend and build trust with children in order to prepare them for abuse—by Muslim gangs since at least 1988. Rather than taking steps to protect British children, however, police, social workers, teachers, neighbors, politicians and the media deliberately downplayed the severity of the crimes perpetrated by the grooming gangs in order to avoid being accused of "Islamophobia" or racism.
Meanwhile, official figures revealed that record levels of Muslims are serving jail sentences and that the numbers are still growing. Across England and Wales the proportion has risen from 8% one decade ago to 14% now. In London, the figure is 27%, which is more than double the 12% of the capital's population who are Muslim.
On March 27, ITV News reported that the problem of honor-based violence and forced marriages in England is "worse than people think," but that many people are afraid of speaking out because they do not want to be branded as being "racist." Claire Phillipson from Wearside Women in Need said:
"I have no doubt that all over the North East [England] first, second, third generation English young women are being forced into marriage.
"Schools and communities are keeping silent about it, because they are concerned that they would be called racist, Islamophobic. They don't quite know where the line between culture, religion and human rights should be drawn."
An image from the video "Right to choose: Spotting the signs of forced marriage - Nayana", produced by the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office.
On March 13, the Law Society, the main professional association representing and governing the legal profession in England and Wales, issued ground-breaking guidance to help lawyers draft Sharia-compliant wills and estate planning documents. The move effectively enshrined Islamic Sharia law in the British legal system for the first time.

In April, the British government launched a public consultation on whether or not to introduce student loans that are compliant with Islamic Sharia law, which forbids loans that involve the payment of interest.
Critics said that the dispute over interest-bearing student loans follows stepped-up demands for Sharia-compliant banking and insurance as well as credit cards, mortgages and pension funds, which—taken together—are contributing to the establishment of parallel Islamic financial and legal systems in Britain.
Separately, Lloyds Bank was accused of reverse religious discrimination after dropping overdraft fees for Muslims but not for others. The bank said that non-Muslims would have to pay up to £80 (€97, $135) a month for an overdraft, but that for Muslims "there won't be any charges."
Meanwhile, the fast food giant Subway removed ham and bacon from almost 200 outlets in Britain and switched to halal (Arabic for "permitted" or "lawful") meat alternatives, apparently in an attempt to please its Muslim customers.
On April 9, Home Secretary Theresa May published her annual report on the government's strategy for countering terrorism. The report concluded that battle-hardened British jihadists returning from the war in Syria now pose the most serious threat to British security.
On April 17, the Sheffield Crown Court found Aras Hussein, 21, guilty of beheading his girlfriend, Reema Ramzan, 18, with a kitchen knife in her apartment in Sheffield in June 2013. He was sentenced to life, with a minimum of 20 years in prison.
On April 30, a jury at the Manchester Crown Court heard how Ahmed Al-Khatib, 35, murdered his wife for becoming "too westernized." The prosecution told the jury that the mother of three had been "in fear of her husband" and "believed he might one day kill her." She eventually sought help from the police and a lawyer. The prosecutor said:
"The family of the defendants were insulted that she had gone to the law. They wanted her and her children back within the family fold... Therefore, it was decided that she should either be forced to comply or be killed."
On April 19, the Charity Commission, a government agency that regulates charities in the UK, announced a crackdown on Muslim charities that send money to jihadist groups in Syria.
On April 24, British counter-terrorism officials launched a nationwide campaign aimed at encouraging Muslim women to contact the police if they were concerned that their family members or close friends might be preparing to travel to Syria to fight.
Also on April 24, a group of British lawyers launched a new organization called "Sharia Watch UK" to "highlight and expose those movements in Britain which advocate and support the advancement of Islamic law in British society." The group called Sharia law "Britain's Blind Spot."
In May, a senior adviser to Lutfur Rahman, the extremist-linked mayor of the heavily Islamized London Borough of Tower Hamlets, threatened Muslim riots unless people stop questioning the manner of his re-election. Rahman narrowly won re-election on May 23 as an independent, but the result was cast into doubt amid dozens of reports of voter intimidation and a chaotic count that took more than five days to declare a final result. Rahman was expelled from the Labour Party in 2010 after The Telegraph revealed his close links to an Islamic extremist group, the Islamic Forum of Europe.
On May 19, a jury in New York found Abu Hamza, the former imam of Finsbury Park mosque in north London, guilty on all 11 counts following a four-week trial. The one-eyed, handless Hamza was charged with organizing a terrorist camp in the US, taking hostages in Yemen and sending one of his followers from London to train with al-Qaeda in Afghanistan. The guilty verdicts followed a lengthy battle over his extradition from the UK, which began in 2004 but was only carried out in 2012. At the same time, Scotland Yard and MI5 were accused of ignoring warnings that Hamza was establishing an international hub of terrorism in London as far back as 1999. Despite Abu Hamza's conviction, Britain remains the world's leading recruiting ground for al-Qaeda.
On May 16, the Telegraph reported that Aminu Sadiq Ogwuche, a British-born "ringleader" of the Islamist group Boko Haram, responsible for kidnapping hundreds of schoolgirls in Nigeria, was radicalized while studying at a British university. Ogwuche, the son of a retired Nigerian colonel, was said by fellow students at the University of Glamorgan in Wales to call himself "The Lion of Allah" and threatened to cut off the hands and feet of non-Muslims while living in the UK.
On May 9, the mother of Nicky Reilly—a convert to Islam who tried to blow up a restaurant packed with diners in Exeter in 2008—told the BBC's Radio 4 that the would-be suicide bomber was turned into "a loaded gun" by Islamic extremists in Britain. The 22-year-old changed his name to Mohammad Abdulaziz Rashid Saeed-Alim in 2004 in tribute to the jihadists who attacked New York on September 11, 2001. Kim Reilly said: "They were telling him he would be in paradise with 44 virgins, and he believed it."
On May 7, Pizza Express, a British restaurant chain, revealed that halal meat was being used in all of its chicken dishes in all of its 434 restaurants across the UK. Under Islamic law, chicken can only be eaten if the bird's throat has been slit while it is still alive. A Koranic verse is also recited during the ritual. On May 15, it emerged that at least a dozen top universities, including Oxford University, have been secretly serving halal meat to unsuspecting students.
On May 30, a Somalian doctor with a practice in Birmingham was struck off the medical register after he was found by a medical malpractice tribunal to have told an undercover reporter how to arrange female genital mutilation abroad for her two nieces.
In June, Tablighi Jamaat, a radical Islamic group committed to "perpetual jihad" to spread Islam around the world, edged one step closer to building one of the world's largest mosques in London after a star Muslim opponent of the controversial project was intimidated into silence. The proposed mega-mosque would be built on a 16-acre site near the Olympic Stadium, and would have a capacity for more than 9,000 worshippers.
On June 17, British Prime Minister David Cameron warned that British citizens and other Europeans fighting alongside Islamist insurgents in Iraq and Syria posed the biggest threat to Britain's national security.
But on June 22, the Financial Times reported: "The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has halved its counter-terrorism budget even as officials warn of the most severe threat to the UK from overseas terror groups since the London bombings in 2005."
Also on June 22, the Sunday Times reported that British jihadists are faking their deaths on the battlefield in Syria in an attempt to return to the UK undetected. In one instance, the martyrdom of a fighter in Syria was announced by his colleagues on social media, only for police to arrest the "dead" individual at the port town of Dover.
The Times also reported that a British jihadist using the nom de guerre Abu Rashash Britani recently posted a message on Twitter that said: "When we establish khilafah [an Islamic state], a battalion of mujahideen shud head to UK & capture David Cameron & Theresa May n behead them both Smile"
Another jihadist from Birmingham named Junaid Hussain tweeted that the "black flag of jihad" will soon fly over Downing Street. He also tweeted: "Imagine if someone were to detonate a bomb at voting stations or ambushed the vans that carry the casted votes. It would mess the whole system up." Hussain re-tweeted a warning from a like-minded countryman for British people to "watch out," because "we'll come back to the UK and wreak havoc."
Meanwhile, a 19-year-old jihadist from Portsmouth named Muhammad Hassan promised a "killing spree" of British citizens if he were ever to return to Britain.
On June 16, a new law entered into effect, which makes forced marriage a self-standing criminal offense in England and Wales and is punishable by up to seven years in prison. Research commissioned by the government estimates that up to 8,000 young women in Britain are the victims of forced marriages each year, but charities say the actual number is far higher because many victims are afraid to come forward.
On June 12, the BBC reported that some Muslim families in Britain have begun hiring bounty hunters to track down the victims of forced marriage who try to run away.
On June 25, Britain became the first Western nation to issue Islamic bonds, completing a plan that was more than seven years in the making. Investors placed £2.3 billion ($3.9 billion) of orders, more than 11 times the amount of bonds on offer.
On June 24, the Minister of State for Universities and Science, David Willetts, said that a Sharia-compliant alternative to the conventional student loan could become available in the UK beginning in 2016. He said: "It would be a tragedy if any student, particularly a Muslim student because of concerns about so-called interest rates, were put off from going to university." He added: "This does not mean we are introducing Sharia law in the UK."
On June 6, the British Ministry of Defense (MoD) admitted that non-Muslim soldiers are unknowingly being fed halal meat on military bases.
Also in June, an investigation found that all of the chicken and lamb meat being served at the University of Warwick is halal. A first-year student commented:
"It's disgusting that only Islamic meat is provided and no others. How is it acceptable for me to eat blessed meat of another religion that is different to my own? To effectively impose a monopoly on my choice leads me to question whether their religion (Islam) is prioritized over my own."
On June 9, government inspectors found that the library at Olive Tree Primary School, a Muslim school in Luton, included books that advocate stoning and lashing. Leaders of the school accused the inspectors of "Islamophobia."
In July, analysts at SITE, a group that monitors radical Islamic propaganda, reported that a growing number of British women have moved to Syria to raise children under the Islamic State. One such woman is Aqsa Mahmood, a 20-year-old woman from Glasgow, Scotland who left for Syria in November 2013.
Mahmood attended private schools and had wanted to become a doctor, but she dropped out of university without warning and vanished overnight in order to become a jihadist and marry an IS fighter. Using the jihadist name of Umm Layth (Arabic for "Mother of the Lion") Mahmood uses social media to encourage other British Muslim women to leave their families behind and join the jihad in Syria. She wrote: "Once you arrive in the land of jihad, the Islamic State is your family."
On July 3, the Inner London Crown Court sentenced six Muslims to a combined 36 years in prison for attacking two black men with a baseball bat because they were not Muslim. Judge Ian Darling said: "Not only was there a religious aspect to this offense, but there was an undoubted racial element."
On July 4, a British jihadist who uses the nom de guerre Abu Osama told the BBC's Radio 5:
"If and when I come back to Britain it will be when this Khilafah, the Islamic state, comes to conquer Britain, and I come to raise the black flag of Islam over Downing Street, over Buckingham Palace, over Tower Bridge and over Big Ben."
On July 6, a British jihadist using the alias Abu Dugma al-Britani, warned that the Islamic State would capture Downing Street and hold executions in Trafalgar Square. Using Twitter, he wrote: "Downing Street will be a base for Muslims. Trafalgar Square is where public executions will take place. Army of Islamic State is coming."
On July 8, Lord Richard Scott, a former British Supreme Court judge, called on Christians to marry Muslims to tackle Islamophobia. He said:
"Of my two sons one has become a Muslim and of my two daughters one of those has become a Muslim, and I have 12 lovely grandchildren, seven of whom are little Muslims.
"The family relationships since those events took place have been as happily familial, as close and as good as any parent or grandparent could wish.
"I do just wonder that if an improvement is needed between the faith groups, one way of promoting that might be to encourage interfaith marriages."
On July 14, a Muslim checkout worker at a Tesco supermarket in London refused to sell non-Muslim customer ham and wine because it was Ramadan. The checkout clerk told Julie Cottle that he would not touch the items because they are considered forbidden by Islam and advised her to use the self-service tills instead. When Cottle complained to the manager, he backed the worker's right to refuse to serve her because it was the holy month of Ramadan and he was fasting. Tesco later apologized for the incident and said the worker had been "spoken to."
On July 18, a government report leaked to the Guardian revealed that a group of Islamic fundamentalists, mostly men of Pakistani origin, infiltrated the management of at least ten schools in Birmingham, sometimes breaking the law in order to introduce Muslim worship and sex segregation. Their activities were unimpeded by council officials who were fearful of allegations of Islamophobia and who forced ousted teachers to sign gagging clauses rather than treating their complaints seriously as whistleblowers.
On July 28, the Star City entertainment complex in Birmingham barred non-Muslims from entering a cinema because they were not celebrating the Islamic festival Eid. One non-Muslim complained on Facebook:
"My friends family have just been refused entry at VUE cinema as they are not Muslim this is a shocking disgrace. If the shoe was on the other foot there would be uproar. Can you imagine banning all Muslims to star city because it's Christmas."
In August, data released by the Office of National Statistics [ONS] showed that Mohammed was the most popular given to boys born in Britain in 2013. Although the ONS claimed that Oliver was the top name with 6,949 boys, it was in fact Mohammed when the top three spellings for the name (Muhammad, 3,499; Mohammed, 2,887 and Mohammad, 1,059) are combined to yield 7,445 boys.
On August 21, it emerged that there are now more British Muslims fighting for the Islamic State than for Britain's military.
On August 23, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, Lord Carey, warned that radical Islam is on the rise and "imperiling our way of life, threatening to undermine the values that have been bitterly won over the centuries." He called on Britons to "recover a confidence in our own nation's values. For too long we have been self-conscious and even ashamed about British identity." He added:
"By embracing multiculturalism and the idea that every culture and belief is of equal value we have betrayed our own traditions of welcoming strangers to our shore.
"The fact is that for too long the doctrine of multiculturalism has led to immigrants establishing completely separate communities in our cities. This has led to honor killings, female genital circumcision and the establishment of sharia law in inner-city pockets throughout the UK."
On August 26, Alexis Jay, the leader of an independent inquiry in the sexual abuse of children in Rotherham, released a horrifying report that found that gangs of mainly Muslim men of Pakistani heritage had groomed, terrorized and abused at least 1,400 girls, some as young as 11, in Rotherham over a 16-year period between 1997 and 2013.
On August 31, the Independent on Sunday reported that a House of Commons committee would launch an investigation into whether Tony Blair's Labour government knew about the Rotherham child abuse scandal as far back as 2001, but refused to act because of his government's desire to pacify Muslim communities.
On August 30, a straw poll conducted by the BBC's Saturday Morning Live Show found that 95% of respondents said that they think multiculturalism in Britain is a failure.
In September, new census data showed that the number of Muslim children in Birmingham was greater than the number who are Christian for the first time. Of Birmingham's 278,623 children, 97,099 were registered as Muslim and 93,828 as Christian. There were also 54,343 children who were recorded as following no religion, showing the rising trend of atheism in the country.
On September 12, London Deputy Mayor Stephen Greenhalgh warned that London children under the age of ten are being "trained to be junior jihadis," a disturbing sign of the growing extremist threat in the capital. He said:
"It's pretty horrendous when you hear how some of these children are being radicalized. The threat of radicalization of young people is real and this is a problem that is going to be with us not just for a couple of years, but for the next generation."
On September 5, it emerged that networks of Islamic radicals are recruiting British jihadists through mosques and prayer centers. Previously, most British jihadists were recruited via online networks. But a combination of a Turkish border clampdown and a focus by counter-terrorist police on taking down online networks has made recruitment on the ground more important.
On September 3, eight Muslim men were charged with sexually abusing girls under the age of 16. The charges followed series of police raids involving 120 officers in the Thames Valley. On September 9, five Muslim men went on trial in Sheffield, accused of trafficking a 13-year-old girl for sex.
On September 10, the government announced that Muslim students will be offered Sharia-compliant interest free student loans in an effort to get more Islamic pupils to go to university.
In September, a customer at a Leicester branch of KFC was refused a hand-wipe as it might offend Muslims. Graham Noakes, 41, said staff at the fast food chain's outlet in St George's retail park refused to give him a hand-wipe because it was against its halal policy. Staff said this was because the wipes are soaked in an alcohol-infused liquid and alcohol is forbidden in the Koran.
In October, a 75-year-old retiree was arrested for "racism" after saying "I'm not Muslim" when he was asked to remove his shoes at security at Stansted Airport. Paul Griffith was charged with causing "racially or religiously aggravated harassment, alarm or distress."
In October, a taxi company in Rochdale, a town tainted by a child sex-grooming scandal perpetrated by Muslim gangs, began offering customers "white" or "local" drivers on demand. The move came after two local drivers of Pakistani origin were jailed for their part in the rape and trafficking of young white girls.
On October 23, the BBC reported that a memorial for Lee Rigby, a British soldier who was murdered by two Muslim converts in May 2013, will not bear his name. Greenwich Council said a stone would be placed in St George's Chapel garden, opposite Woolwich Barracks where Rigby was based, but that the memorial would pay tribute to all fallen servicemen and woman. Local MP Nick Raynsford said that a Rigby memorial would attract "undesirable interest from [Islamic] extremists."
On October 16, a new report showed that in just six months, nearly 2,000 women and girls in England were treated by the National Health Service after undergoing female genital mutilation [FGM]. In September alone, 467 female patients in England were newly identified as having been subjected to FGM. The data published by the Health and Social Care Information Centre [HSCIC] were the first official figures to have been published on the numbers of FGM cases seen in hospitals in England.
On October 30, a new study found that child sexual exploitation has become "the social norm" in many parts of Greater Manchester. The report—Real Voices, Child Sexual Exploitation In Greater Manchester—estimated that nearly 650 children reported missing in towns across Greater Manchester in 2014 were at risk of child sexual exploitation or serious harm. But despite almost 13,000 reports of child sex abuse in the past six years, only about 1,000 people have been convicted. The report's author—Labour MP Ann Coffey—was criticized for failing to address the fact that many street grooming gangs are made up of Muslim men. She said it would be "wrong" to focus on "Asian" gangs targeting teenage girls.
On October 30, a Populus survey found that one in seven young British adults has "warm feelings" towards Islamic State. A tenth of Londoners and one in 12 Scots view Islamic State favorably, but sympathy for the militant group reaches its highest levels among the under-25s.
In November, British police foiled an Islamist plot to behead Queen Elizabeth at a Remembrance Day event at the Cenotaph, a war memorial situated on Whitehall in London.
In London Borough of Croydon, a couple from Afghanistan threatened to kill their daughter if she rejected a forced marriage and to behead her if she contacted authorities for help.
On November 5, Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner, told an international terrorism conference that his officers are "struggling to cope" with the speed of immigration and because many of those coming to Britain speak different languages and hold different views of authority.
On November 16, senior officials at Scotland Yard advised British police officers not to wear their uniforms on the way to and from work amid concerns that Islamic extremists are plotting to target them on the streets.
On November 10, The Times reported that British intelligence officials warned senior ministers that the scale of terrorist activity is so great that an attack is "almost inevitable" in the coming months.
On November 26, the British government unveiled sweeping new counter-terrorism measures which—if approved by Parliament—would give the United Kingdom some of the "toughest powers in the world" to fight Islamic terrorism.
On November 12, the BBC reported that the British Islamist Abu Rumaysah skipped bail after being arrested on terrorism charges and is thought to be in Syria, despite being banned from leaving the UK. Rumaysah left London on a bus bound for Paris after blundering police failed to confiscate his passport. On November 2, 60 Minutes aired an interview with Rumaysah, who said:
"Ultimately, I want to see every single woman in this country [Britain] covered from head to toe. I want to see the hand of the thief cut. I want to see the adulterer stoned to death. I want to see Sharia law in Europe. And I want to see it in America, as well. I believe our [Sharia] patrols are a means to an end."
On November 1, a new report by Sharia Watch UK exposed the activities of Islamist speakers on British university campuses. The report—Learning Jihad—documented how Islamists are making anti-Semitic remarks, deriding Western notions of human rights, advocating female genital mutilation and calling for a raft of strict Sharia punishments such as stoning adulterers to death.
On November 11, the new Muslim owner of the exclusive Bermondsey Square Hotel in London abruptly banned alcohol and pork from the bar and grill at the hotel, in order to run it "in accordance with Sharia law." The £220 ($340)-a-night hotel is believed to be one of the first in the UK to introduce the strict Muslim policy, but staff said the changes have caused business to plummet, with many reservations cancelled.
Also on November 11, it was reported that thousands of Muslim school children in East Lancashire were being offered a pork-based vaccine as part of a major new flu immunization program. The new nasal spray, which is made with gelatin derived from pigs, is part of a pilot project, but Muslim leaders complained that the decision not to offer an alternative was "outrageous" because they consider the spray to be 'haram' or sinful. Public Health England, which is leading the project, said in a statement: "There is no suitable alternative to [the porcine-based] Fluenz [vaccine]."
On November 13, police in Manchester arrested 13 members of human trafficking gang after a pregnant woman was duped into travelling to England before being sold into a sham Sharia law marriage. The 20-year-old Slovakian woman, who was 25 weeks pregnant, was tricked into flying to Luton airport in May believing that she would be able to meet her sister. After meeting a man at the airport who claimed to be her sister's friend, however, she was taken to an address in Oldham. She then discovered that she had been sold to a Muslim man who had paid the gang £15,000 (€19,000; $23,000) to provide her a sham marriage. Police say the purpose of the marriage, which took place under a Sharia ceremony in Rochdale in July, was to improve the man's chances of avoiding deportation from the UK.
On November 10, the BBC reported that police in Rotherham not only ignored, but actively obstructed investigations into child abuse victims, apparently because the perpetrators were Muslim. On November 19, the Birmingham Mail reported that the Birmingham City Council "buried" a politically incorrect government-funded report that revealed to sexual exploitation of young white girls by Muslim men. The author of the report, Jill Jesson, told the newspaper that the report was never published and all copies were to be destroyed. She said:
"I was employed to do the work because I think they thought I would be objective," she said. "I was told to reveal what I saw. I did – and some people didn't like it.
"Every time a news item has come on about sexual grooming of young girls and girls in care, and the link, too, between private hire drivers, I have thought, 'I told them about that in 1991 but they didn't want to acknowledge it.' I think the problem has got worse and worse over time."
On November 24, the Law Society withdrew controversial guidelines for lawyers on how to draft "Sharia compliant" wills amid complaints that they encouraged discrimination against women and non-Muslims. The guidelines advised lawyers on how to write Islamic wills in a way that would be recognized by courts in England and Wales. They set out principles that meant women could be denied an equal share of inheritances while unbelievers could be excluded altogether.
In December, a radio presenter for the BBC Radio 4's Feedback program, Roger Bolton, wrote an article for the Radio Times, a weekly magazine, in which he warned that British school teachers are afraid to teach their students about Christianity out of fear of offending Muslims. Bolton said that this was creating a generation of British youth who are ignorant about Christian culture and its role in British history. He cited a study that found that a quarter of British children indicated that they have never read, seen or heard of Noah's Ark,' that a similar proportion had never heard of the Nativity, that 43% had never heard of the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ, and that 53% had never read, seen or heard of Joseph and his coat of many colors.
On December 10, a new report by a human rights group exposed the vulnerability of Muslim women living in Islamic "marriages" in the UK. The report—Equal and Free? 50 Muslim Women's Experiences of Marriage in Britain Today—found that the widespread practice of polygamy has left Muslim women without legal rights upon "divorce," entirely dependent on their "husbands" for financial support, and often unable to leave sham "marriages" for fear of social ostracism or bringing "shame" to their family.
On December 11, the House of Lords held debates on female genital mutilation [FGM] and the "impact of Sharia Law on the United Kingdom." Lord Faulks, Minister of State for Civil Justice and Legal Policy, cited research that "revealed that approximately 60,000 girls are at risk of FGM in the UK." In the following debate, Baroness Cox said: "The establishment of Sharia courts or councils in this country has promoted the application of gender-discriminatory provisions in ways which are currently causing considerable distress for many women." She also asked why "polygamy is allowed to flourish" in Britain even though bigamy is illegal.
Finally, December saw the launch of the faceless "Deeni Doll," (deeni is Arabic for "faith") which is adorned with a traditional hijab headdress, but has no nose, mouth, or eyes, in order to comply with Islamic rulings regarding the depictions of facial features. The toy, which retails for £25 ($40), was designed by a former teacher at a Muslim school in Lancashire. She said:
"I came up with the idea from scratch after speaking to some parents who were a little concerned about dolls with facial features. Some parents won't leave the doll with their children at night because you are not allowed to have any eyes in the room. There is an Islamic ruling which forbids the depiction of facial features of any kind and that includes pictures, sculptures and, in this case, dolls."
