A celebrity chef has come under fire after making “hurtful” comments about the city’s Muslim community.
In her new book, Clarissa Dickson Wright describes a visit to Leicester “as one of the most frightening experiences of my life”.
The 65-year-old dedicates a chapter of Clarissa’s England: A Gamely Gallop Through the English Counties to each county in England, discussing their culinary, cultural and historical merits. On Leicestershire, she writes of the city’s “ghetto”.
She describes coming off the ring road to escape a traffic jam and becoming lost.
It might help to go to Leicester in a properly covered car:
One Fat Lady in race row over Muslim ghetto’ jibe: The Islamic area of Leicester frightened me, says TV chef
(Islam is not a race, Mr scribbler. Being repulsed, offended and frightened to see Mohammedan hordes take over your country is a natural instinct which you might be lacking. But politically correct scribblers and their enablers can’t bow and scrape enough to their new overlords.)
“If you read most of the British media that may well be what you think. After all there has been barely any previous mention in the British papers of the massive escalation in rocket fire into Israel in the last month or the even swifter escalation this week. Certainly no British paper or broadcaster has come close to giving these attacks the front-page publicity they grant to Israel’s response today.”
“The Foreign Office came out with the standard, dithering rubbish effectively refusing to take sides. The FCO tweeted:
“We continue to call on all sides to exercise restraint to prevent a dangerous escalation that would be in no one’s interests. #Gaza”
It could have been worse, of course. It could have been a response from the BBC.”
Hardly a shock, but worth noting nonetheless. ‘Moderate modern’ Muslim Malaysia’s previous proclivities in regards to Hamas have been noted here at Jihad Watch before, so Malaysia’s (restated) condemnation of Israel’s self-defense and (restated) staunch support of Hamas was merely a matter of time. From “Malaysia condemns Israeli attacks on Gaza, calls for UN action,” The Star, 15 November 2012:
KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia has urged the United Nations, particularly the Security Council, to take immediate resolute action over what it called irresponsible military action by Israel against innocent civilians in Gaza.
If you’re a moderate Muslim government like Malaysia, when is any Israeli military action not ‘irresponsible’?
I can imagine the Islamists in the Sinai itching to join in the shooting, especially since they know Israel isn’t going to attack Egypt. At least one major Sinai jihadist group openly claims to cooperate with Hamas when firing rockets.
Pallywood, and the stench of an ancient score being settled
Hamas and its acolytes are committing crimes against humanity twice over. They are deliberately targeting Israeli civilians with their rockets and missiles, trying to kill as many of them as possible including women and children. They are also using their own people as human shields, having deliberately hidden their rocket launchers among Gaza’s civilian infrastructure, thus deliberately exposing ordinary Gazans to the severe risk of being killed. In addition, the Hamas are committed not just to the destruction of Israel but also, by their own religious authority, to the genocide of the Jews, and indoctrinate their children accordingly into deranged, Nazi-style Jew-hatred.
What kind of ‘fair chance’ would that be? Is it fair to let muslims force Islam and the sharia on their German hosts? When has Islam ever given non-muslims a ‘fair chance?’ Is it fair to marry children, is it fair to force women to marry their cousins in Turkey, to beat your wife, to engage in polygamy, female genital mutilation, to kill blasphemers and to wage jihad on unbelievers to strike terror into their hearts? Is it fair to stone adulterous women in the public square? Is it fair to murder homosexuals?
The most controversial part involves a commitment by the city government to promote the teaching of Islam in the Hamburg pubic school system. The agreement grants the leaders of Hamburg’s Muslim communities a determinative say in what will be taught by allowing them to develop the teaching curriculum for Islamic studies. Muslim officials will also be able to determine who will (and will not) be allowed to teach courses about Islam in city schools — meaning that only Muslims will be allowed to teach Islam. Muslims, for their part, are hoping the Hamburg treaty will establish a precedent for the rest of Germany to follow.
Hamburg, the second-largest city in Germany, has concluded a historic treaty” with its Muslim communities that grants Muslims broad new rights and privileges but does little to encourage their integration into German society.
A RadicalIslam.org investigation has discovered that at least four Islamists sit on New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s Muslim outreach committee, which was formed after Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa concluded in May that NYPD intelligence-gathering operations in New Jersey did not break any laws.
All of the information about the Islamist backgrounds of these four committee members is publicly available, yet the Christie Administration picked them to serve as liaisons to the Muslim community of the state. As a result, they are having private meetings with N.J.’s top security officials. This is just the latest example of Christie’s embrace of Islamists that should be shunned, not exalted.
JULIA Gillard has condemned Hamas rocket and mortar attacks on Israel, saying they won’t help the Palestinian cause.
The Prime Minister said today she was gravely concerned by the escalating conflict in the Middle East, following Israel’s assassination of Hamas military leader Ahmed Jabari, and urged restraint by both sides.
Ms Gillard called on Hamas to immediately cease its rocket attacks on Israel from the Gaza Strip.
PRIVATE schools receiving up to $15 million in government funding each year have transferred large sums to the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils, which operates six schools around the country and is the country’s peak Muslim body.
The chairman of the Islamic College of Brisbane, Mohammed Yusuf, said in an email obtained by Fairfax Media the ”AFIC arbitrarily withdrew $288,000 from Islamic College of Brisbane’s account without our approval”.
Today, President Obama presided over an absurd press conference in which he puffed himself up with righteous indignation over Senators John McCain (R-AZ), Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) calling for a full-scale investigation of Benghazi and opposition to Ambassador Susan Rice’s possible nomination for Secretary of State.
