UK: Police accused of covering up islamists’ violence on Tower Hamlets

What is happening in this London borough is really worrying. If the police, instead of being ordered to fight these thugs, is just covering it up as it looks like, the problem in a near future will worsen. Of course, that’s a not very probable possibility, specially after the election of the fundamentalist IFE-supported Rahman to be Mayor of the borough last year.

Police have been accused of “covering up” a campaign of abuse, threats and violence aimed at “Islamicising” an area of London.

Victims say that officers in the borough of Tower Hamlets have ignored or downplayed outbreaks of hate crime, and suppressed evidence implicating Muslims in them, because they fear being accused of racism. (It isn’t the first time this happens…).

The claims come as four Tower Hamlets Muslims were jailed for at least 19 years for attacking a local white teacher who gave religious studies lessons to Muslim girls.

The Sunday Telegraph has uncovered more than a dozen other cases in Tower Hamlets where both Muslims and non-Muslims have been threatened or beaten for behaviour deemed to breach fundamentalist “Islamic norms.”

One victim, Mohammed Monzur Rahman, said he was left partially blind and with a dislocated shoulder after being attacked by a mob in Cannon Street Road, Shadwell, for smoking during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan last year.

“Two guys stopped me in the street and asked me why I was smoking,” he said. “I just carried on, and before I knew another dozen guys came and jumped me. The next thing I knew, I was waking up in hospital.”

“We do not have to fear for our lives as long as we do not infringe Islam”

We have to thank him for his exact portrait of what is to live under “tolerant” Islam, though:

A year after his appointment as the first bishop of the overwhelmingly Muslim Comoros–which consists of three islands between mainland Africa and Madagascar–Bishop Mahuza Yava told Aid to the Church in Need that Christians are “well accepted and tolerated.”

“It is a tolerant Islam which has nothing to do with extremism,” he said. “We can freely express ourselves as long as we don’t proselytize. We do not have to fear for our lives as long as we do not infringe upon Islam.”

Bishop Yava added, however, that “a woman who marries a Muslim man will be forced to convert to Islam if she is not strong in her faith,” and “Christian children are badgered by their Muslim friends at school to convert to Islam.”

Most of the nation’s 6,000 Catholics are foreign workers.

UK: Scottish National Party supports Islamists

Among others, the Muslim Brotherhood:

The likes of Osama Saeed and Hamza Yousaf are the SNP’s new defenders of Scottish values. Osama Saeed, who was a spokesman for the Muslim Brotherhood, a supporter of Yemeni Al-Qaeda cleric Anwar Al-Awlaki, was also a Scottish National Party candidate and an adviser to Prime Minister Salmond.

Osama Saeed, named one of Scotland’s Top 100 thinkers and opinion formers, wrote an article for The Guardian championing the return of the Caliphate. “A restored caliphate,” Osama explained, “is entirely compatible with democratically accountable institutions.” It would be just like the EU, except its leader would be called a Caliph, its law would be Sharia and if the US and Britain are really sincere about helping Muslims, they should support the restoration of the Caliphate.

In an astoundingly short time, the Scottish National Party has gone from collaborating with Nazis, to collaborating with Islamists. Its talk of Scottish values has become a farce. SNP candidate Humza Yousaf took his oath of allegiance in the Scottish Parliament in Urdu. Jahangir Hanif became known as the Kalashnikov Councilor over a video of him firing an AK-47 in an armed camp in Pakistan. And the SNP has funneled hundreds of thousands of pounds to the Scottish Islamic Foundation, which has served as a forum for Muslim Brotherhood speakers. The unemployed of West Dunbartonshire face cuts, but there’s always money on hand for the Scottish Islamic Foundation.

Chechenya: women who drive face problems

It is not forbidden by law, as in Saudi Arabia. But in Chechnya the tradition prevents women from driving. The few who dare are some weirdos. Not to mention the shots of paint that have received some women for not covering the head with a veil.

… That standard is set, like everything in Chechnya, by Kadyrov, who heads the republic as if they were all his subjects. One of his first public remarks after being appointed prime minister in 2006 (he became president the following year) was to “encourage” women to cover their hair. Today, stories abound of women dismissed from their jobs for not reporting to work with a headscarf.

… In a report on the implementation of Islamic dress in Chechnya, published in March, Human Rights Watch wrote: “paintball attacks came several years ago in a quasi-official, though extra-legal,” campaign under “In Chechnya.

Kadyrov has also expressed its support for honor killings. After seven women’s bodies were found in a ditch on the road two years ago, said he probably had a “loose morals.” If a woman runs around and if a man runs around with her, both are dead. ”

The last part of the “campaign of virtue“, according to several women and activists in Chechnya, are the plainclothed state agents, who, standing in the street corners, shout advice to women about dress and behaviour.

Germany: Imam faces jail for breaking bones of disobedient wife

Sheikh Abu Amad, the polygamous violent husband

According to BR the Islamic  clergyman has already abused one of its three wives one week ago. 

Sheikh Abu Adam (pictured) injured the 31-year-old badly. She suffered  several fractures and was taken into protective custody from police officers, away from the dwelling of the 40-year-old imam. The police received a distress-call from a lawyer called by the victim. In the meantime  the woman remains under police protection.

According to the report, the Islamic clergyman, who preaches publicly again and again against domestic violence and against jihad, was considered a gladly seen guest with the integration/multiculti-interfaith- rounds organized by well known social engineers . One week before his arrest he held a speech at the Catholic University Municipality of Munich.

According to the German Herald (found here), the lecture he gave in Munich was titled “‘An Islam Which Distances Itself From Violence”.

While he was beating her, he was shouting:

“Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because God has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them.”

Well, he ended being a not very good supporter of a peaceful Islam, didn’t he?
