Ukip MEP Gerard Batten warns of ‘explosion of mosques’ across Europe – video
The comments confirm that Guardian readers are dense, daft and dumb. They suffer from a lack of intellectual curiosity and an overdosis of multicultural indoctrination. Sad, just sad.
Footage of Gerard Batten, London MEP for Ukip and their spokesman on immigration, shows him condemning an ‘explosion of mosques’ across Europe. The Guardian has seen a report commissioned by Batten in which he calls on UK Muslims to sign a code of conduct and agree that parts of the Qu’ran should be ‘deferred or suspended’. Batten is seeking re-election as an MEP in the European elections for Ukip, whose leadership is seeking to purge the party of extremism
Not so good:
- Nigel Farage distances himself from MEP over ‘Muslim code of conduct’
- Tory MP says Ukip politician’s call for Muslim code of conduct is frightening
- Ukip MEP says British Muslims should sign charter rejecting violence
- Proposed code of conduct for British Muslims commissioned by Ukip MEP Gerard Batten – full document
- Ukip MEP who supported Muslim code of conduct urged halal slaughter ban
Many thanks to Ken from the Tundra Tabloids who adds this:
…of course, stupidly, they use it (publish it) as a means to cause embarrassment for UKIP, though the exact opposite will result. Sam Solomon’s ”The Proposed Charter of Muslim Understanding” is a call for moderation within the Muslim community, it’s a charter that any rabbi, priest or minister could sign on to, whole heartedly.
That supposed ”moderate” Muslims take to chastising it instead of signing its praises, says more about them, then the charter itself. I personally would like to thank The Guardian for making the charter available online for its readers, who will see for themselves how moderate, liberal and even handed it is, and that anyone rejecting it, will be the ones looked upon as reactionary and illiberal.
Ukip MEP says British Muslims should sign charter rejecting violence
A Ukip MEP believes that British Muslims should sign a special code of conduct and warns that it was a big mistake for Europe to allow “an explosion of mosques across their land”.
Gerard Batten, who represents London and is member of the party’s executive, told the Guardian on Tuesdaythat he stood by a “charter of Muslim understanding”, which he commissioned in 2006.
The document asks Muslims to sign a declaration rejecting violence and says parts of the Qur’an that promote “violent physical Jihad” should be regarded as “inapplicable, invalid and non-Islamic”.
Critics said his comments represent the “ugliest side of Ukip” and “overlap with the far-right”, in spite of the efforts of party leader Nigel Farage to create a disciplined election machine ahead of the European elections.
Asked on Tuesday about the charter, Batten told the Guardian he had written it with a friend, who is an Islamic scholar, and could not see why “any reasonable, normal person” would object to signing it.
Batten also repeated his view that some Muslim texts need updating, claiming some say “kill Jews wherever you find them and various things like that”.
“If that represents the thinking of modern people, there’s something wrong, in which case maybe they need to revise their thinking. If they say they can’t revise their thinking on those issues, then who’s got the problem – us or them?” he added.
