Defence cuts have left British forces unable to carry out their missions in Libya and Afghanistan effectively, according to a cross-party group of MPs.
The cuts also jeopardise national security and reduce this country’s international influence. (Sounds familiar? )
The Prime Minister’s graceless response to these interventions was: ‘You do the fighting, and I’ll do the talking.’
- Salma Yaqoob is the voice of moderate Islam (Crack me up: Â what makes this hateful bitch “moderate?”)
- Ministers have abandoned an inquiry into the rise of secretive Sharia councils that deal in Islamic justice â€“ because the Muslim courts refused to help.Â (I can’t get over that. If this is not surrender, what is?)

The excuseÂ du jourÂ for the threat of violence is a desire for revenge after bin Laden’s death, though they weren’t exactly a group of pacifists up to that point, either. “Muslim Boys gang are ‘planning massive attack’ at Belmarsh prison in revenge for Osama bin Laden killing,” by Greig Box-Turnbull forÂ The Mirror, August 2
The signs are completely unoriginal at this point. And does anyone ever bother to stick in a comma after “Secularism?” They’re lucky Sharia doesn’t have any punishments on the books for English punctuation. One can’t rule out a fatwa, though.
And as long as they’re advocating Sharia, their wish for British society as we know it to “go to hell” is really just truth in advertising. It would certainly get there under Sharia. “Waltham Forest: Extremists march through borough,” by Joe Curtis for theÂ Guardian-Series, July 30 (thanks to JW):
Muslim extremists calling for democracy to be replaced by Shariah law marched through the borough today.
Around 50 members of Muslims Against Crusades (MAC) and Waltham Forest Muslims (WFM) marched for two hours from Leyton Tube station to Walthamstow town square.
Protesters carrying black flags and loudspeakers set off from Leyton Tube station at 1.20pm.
They chanted slogans such as ‘democracy – hyprocrisy’, ‘Sharia for UK’ and ‘Secularism go to hell’.
There was a heavy police presence as the march made slow progress along the route, with traffic backed up behind it.
Police moved quickly to seperate march supporters from opponents outside the Goose pub in Walthamstow as the demonstration aproached the town square.
But the day passed without major incident.
Council leader Chris Robbins, who an earlier inter-faith event celebrating the diversity of the borough, condemned the protest.
He said: “These people have no place in our borough.
“Those nutters don’t represent our views at all and everyday people reject them.”
“The quicker they leave, the better.”
The The Friendship Pilgrimage, organised by Forest Women’s Interfaith Network, visited religious sites around the borough to celebrate diversity in Waltham Forest.
MACÂ has recently attempted to impose Sharia zones in the borough, by putting up posters saying alcohol, gambling, music and smoking are banned.
The council and police have co-ordinated a swift response, removing the posters and vowing to prosecute anyone illegally fly-posting.
MACÂ is led by radical cleric Anjem Choudary, of Colchester Road, Leyton, whileWFMÂ is headed by Abu Izzadeen, fomally known as Omar Brooks, of Brierley Road, Leytonstone.
Izzadeen, who was jailed in 2009 for inciting terrorism, today called on residents with financial difficulties to join Islam, which he said would provide everyone with a home.
“We are here to save you from yourselves,” he said.
Sharia: where “government knows best” meets “Allah knows best.”
