Thank you, British Muslims for…………………  – Timms

 

LONDON – Britain’s Labor MP Stephen Timms praised Muslims for “bringing back faith into Britain.”
“When parts of our society are so deeply secular, so hostile to the acknowledgment of God, I want today to express appreciation and thanks to Muslims in Britain for insisting on faith,” said the Minister for Business and Labour MP for East Ham at the Global Peace and Unity Event organized by Islam Channel last week. 
“(I want to thank Muslims) for helping put faith back today at the centre of Britain’s national life and debate in a way that it wasn’t for a very long time. 
“You are part of the reason for that change, and I warmly welcome it,” he added.
He urged Muslims to take up politics. 
“We need more people taking up politics from the starting point of faith. Because faith is the source of decent values (like) honesty, commitment to family, generosity, support for peace,” Timms said. “(We need such) decent values which the Muslim community shows in abundance.”
“Those are the very values which we need in our politics, and which this event can help us to promote,” he added.
In an earlier BBC program, Stephen Timms visited two mosques, two churches, a Hindu temple and a Sikh Gurudwara and highlighted the positive contribution the faith groups were making towards cohesion.
The GPU event 2008 was supported by major Islamic organizations including the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) and British Muslim Forum (BMF). The event attracted more than 60,000 visitors last year with addresses from a number of prominent Islamic scholars.

  1. “Praises Muslims for bringing faith back to ole England”…

    To the sound of bomb blasts echoing through Londonistan & chants of “allah-u-akbar, prepare for the new holocaust” heard mingled with the screams of terror victims.

    Welcome to the “new world economic order” Mr.Timms.

  2. * Stephen Timms praised Muslims for “bringing back faith into Britain.”

    I nearly vomited on my ham & cheese sanger when I read this by Stephen Timms on
    “The Christian contribution to New Labour (28/09/02)”

    If he read the Bible, especially concerning God and his only begotten Son Jesus Christ, he
    would know that “faith” in the sonless, crucifixion-denying “allah” is worthless, and
    blasphemous, and will lead to the destruction of Britain.

  4. Email the gentleman – the address was given in a previous post, and seems to have been removed, but it is easily found. Let Mr. Timms know that he is not unaccountable for what he say,

  5. Sharia calls for the extermination of apostates, atheists, polytheists and homosexuals. Would this be one of the “decent values” to which Timms refers? The extermination or oppression with a view to termination of any group based on ethnicity, political belief or religious belief is defined as genocide. Timms seems to be endorsing genocide. Is that not illegal in the UK? Timms is a public figure and as such his comments are not simply his expression of his own private views. This man applauds the intimidation of atheists and other “non-religious” people. He should be made to realise that we are not going to be victimised simply to win his party votes!
