Koranimals circling the wagons:
A Birmingham schoolÂ plunged into special measures has again refused to admit council officials who turned up to replace its governors.Â The city council’s Interim Executive Board, led by chairman David Willey, was denied entry to Al-HijrahÂ in Bordesley GreenÂ for the second time in less than a fortnight yesterday.
Islamo agitprop Mehdi Hasan whines:
“….the evidence in favourÂ is pretty thinÂ while the alleged ringleader of the ‘plot’, Tahir Alam, the chairman of Park View School in Birmingham, has strongly denied the claims. “The whole thing has been blown out of all proportion. It’s based on an anonymous document, unsigned, undated,” heÂ told the Today programmeÂ in May.”
That was then. But we moved on since then. And the facts are undeniable. But for radical headbangers like Mehdi Hasan there is never Â any evidence. Like Anjem Chaudary, he will always stand with his Muslim brothers, because the unbelievers are dumb, deaf and blind like cattle….. (Puff Ho)
The Muslim Council of Britain is Behind the Trojan Horse Plot
The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) Linked to School-takeover Plot
So much for the large-scale Muslim plot to take over various British schools being solely about “extreme Islamists”.
The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) isÂ the most “mainstream” Muslim organisation in the UK. Indeed the British government of the time (New Labour)Â helped fund and set up inÂ 1997. Some of its leaders have written articles for theÂ Guardian, theÂ Huffington PostÂ andÂ they’ve also been featured on the BBC (e.g., Inayat Bunglawala and Muhammad Abdul Bari – both mentioned below).
“In his 72-page document, published by the Muslim Council of Britain in 2007, Mr Alam and his co-author, Muhammad Abdul Bari [then the Secretary General of the MCB], attacked many state schools for not being ‘receptive of legitimate and reasonable requests made by Muslim parents and pupils in relation to their faith-based aspirations and concerns.’…”
It was reported (in theÂ Telegraph) that the alleged ringleader of what is now called the “Trojan Horse plot” (to takeover schools) wrote a blueprint for the “Islamisation” of secular state schools for the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB). That blueprint resembles what is happening in Birmingham in that the plotters appear to have closely followed the (MCB) document’s suggestions.
Bari defended the extremist cleric Dr Naik who has been documented as saying “all Muslims should be terrorists”. Naik has also defended everything from domestic violence to Jew-hatred. Abdul Bari argued that Naik should be allowed into the UK; thoughÂ Gert WildersÂ (who has never sanctioned violence) should be banned.
Abdul Bari has criticised the government’s stance on Muslim extremism. He once said that it was responsible for creating tensions within the communities. Perversely (given the well-documented Jew-hatred of the MCB/Muslim Brotherhood), he once stated (in 2007) that theÂ “UK will become Nazi Germany, if the situation [of UK Islamic terrorism] is not handled very well by the government”.
So what about the present media secretary on the MCB – Inayat Bunglawala?
Here’s a short list of some of Mr Bunglawala’s positions and views:
|Bunglawala’s “courageous” Abdel-Rahman.|
i) He opposes the banning of Hizb ut-Tahrir under UK anti-terror laws. However, the MCB agreed with the banning of Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer (not linked to violence) from the UK and thinks that EDL (not linked to killings) demos should be banned. (Hizb ut-Tahrir, to whichÂ the MCB is connected, was directly responsible for mass communal violence in Bangladesh.)
iii) Five months before the 9/11, he circulated the writings of Osama bin Laden (whom he called a “freedom fighter”) to hundreds of Muslims in Britain.
iv) He objects to the use of the phrase “Islamic terrorism”. He also believed that Osama bin Laden shouldn’t be described as an “Islamic” or “Islamist” terrorist; but as an “international” terrorist.
Let’s return to the Islamic-education document.
That document attacked state schools for not being “receptive of legitimate and reasonable requests made by Muslim parents and pupils in relation to their faith-based aspirations and concerns”.
So which “aspiration and concerns” of Muslims were Muhammad Abdul Bari and Mr Alam talking about? Take the following:
i) That schools shouldn’t teach “potentially harmful forms of music” which “promote immoral behaviour” or include “unethical and un-Islamic lyrics”.
ii) That schools shouldn’t teach any arts involving “three-dimensional imagery of humans”.
iii) That schools should “try to avoid scheduling swimming lessons during Ramadan”.
iv) That “school balls, discos and fashion shows” should be avoided.
v) That all Muslim girls should be “covered except for their hands and faces”.
vi) That the “multicultural approach” to collective worship in state schools is not acceptable to Muslims.
|Salma Yaqoob: writer for theÂ Guardian.|
Muslims, on the whole, have reacted negatively to all this scrutiny. Yet the majority of Muslims certainly haven’t seriously attempted to get rid of the “extreme Islamists” (or the grooming gangs and terrorists) within their midst. Predictably, Mr Alam andSalma YaqoobÂ (former leader of the political party Respect and writer for theÂ Guardian) have talked about the investigations in terms of their being a “witch-hunt” and an outbreak of “Islamophobia”. Other Muslims have gone into denial mode too. For example, Achmad da Costa, chairman of governors at Oldknow school, attempted to assemble local mosques with a special meeting to protest against the school inspections.
So let’ take a quick look at the Oldknow Academy just mentioned:
So much for “diversity” and “community cohesion”.
None of this should surprise anyone outside the gullible interfaith circuit because many people have always known that the MCB is not a “moderate” organisation at all. What is is, to be precise, is a Islamist organisation whichÂ pretendsÂ to be a moderate Muslim organisation. Yet pretending to be moderate and actually being moderate are two completely different things.
At this point American readers will be thinking about their very own Council on American–Islamic RelationsÂ (CAIR). Basically, the Muslim Council of Britain (likewise closely linked to the Muslim Brotherhood) is the British CAIR.
1)Â I made a mistake in the article above. Readers may have noted the single non-Muslim name amongst the Oldknow Academy list of governors: Bhupinder Kondal.
She has since be “driven out” of the school by the said Islamist governors. Clearly, the Oldknow Academy website has not been updated.
Some Iftikar Ahmed?
Do Not Be Fooled by Muslim Propaganda
Apparently Mr. Ahmad presents his arguments on other sites as well. Paul Austin Murphy of Liberty GB decided to address Ahmad’s ridiculous claims back in April 2013:Â “Iftikhar Ahmad Says: Islamise UK Schools!”Â Mr. Murphy makes some valid points, and after posting six painfully long “comments” by Ahmad in the effort to allow dissenting opinions and self-defense from the Muslim front, I too feel the need to address some of his claims. (Though not all- his latest comment is three pages long, and I’m not going to waste my time answering each point.)
If this is the same Iftikhar Ahmad,Â he is associated with the Muslim Council of BritainÂ and therefore has a special interest to defend the 72-page brochure that Paul Wilkinson analyzed in his latest article,Â “The Blueprint to Islamise State Education.”Â However, this site is not meant to be a platform for Muslim propaganda, but rather, is dedicated to showing the dangers of uncontrolled Muslim immigration to the West which has ulterior motives with Muslims intent on Islamicizing the entire world. And let’s not forget that one of the founders of the Muslim Council of Britain, Chowdury Mueen-Uddin, was recently sentenced to death in Bangladesh for the murder of 18 people in 1971, yet he was in the UK, spewing the same kind of propaganda as Iftikhar Ahmad here. Should he be given a platform on this site? I think I’ve been more than fair in posting what I’ve already posted of his “kuffarophobic” point of view.
With that said, let’s look at some of what he wrote:
” The Muslim community has been passing through a phase of fourth Crusades. The battleground is the field of education…”
Crusades? Sounds melodramatic. With an open door policy on Muslim immigration, state-funded Muslim schools, and peopleÂ such asÂ PM David Cameron making statements like, “It is mainstream Britain which needs to integrate more with the Muslim way of life, not the other way around,” where exactly are these “Crusades” happening?
“A true Muslim believes in Prophet Moses and the Prophet Jesus and without them one cannot be a Muslim.”
Sure, and they believe they were Muslims and that the Torah and Christian Bible have been corrupted (even though ancient Torah scrolls are exactly the same as the Torah today), and what is stated in them is now null and void because of that “corruption”, replaced with the Qur’an. The Muslim belief that it was Ishmael on the altar rather than Isaac demonstrates that the Muslim faith is not in keeping with Judaism or Christianity and is not the supposed “continuation” with Muhammad being the “final prophet.”
Furthermore, Islam teaches hatred against us infidels. The Religion of Peace website sums it up perfectly:Â “The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule.Â Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding.”Â In addition, the Al Gharqad hadith instructs Muslims to kill Jews. While it is supposed to be an end-of-times scenario, it is used by groups like Hamas to incite hatred and theÂ murderÂ of Jews today.
“My suggestion is that in all state, independent and Christian based school special attention should be given to the teaching of Comparative Religion and Islam should be taught by qualified Muslim Teachers to make the children aware the closeness of Islam to Christianity and Judaism which will help them to think about Islam, as ‘A Pragmatic and Modern Way of Life,’ during their life time.”
There really is no comparison whatsoever as I’ve already pointed out. Perhaps Islam should be taught to our children, not from a Muslim-biased point of view, but rather, from a qualified teacher who can show students the hatred against us and explain the source of this terrorism throughout the history of Islam and still to this day.
“Children should be taught about the contribution Muslims have made to civilisation in order to combat threats of extremism and discrimination. It will help native children to develop positive attitudes towards Muslims.”
Contributions such as over 270 million dead bodies? Or the handful of Muslim Nobel Prize winners as opposed to the nearly 200 Jewish recipients of the award? In fact, Jews make up 41% of the recipients, whereas Muslims make up around 1%, while Jews round out about .2% of the world population, and Muslims account for about 1/4 of it. Wonderful contributions indeed.
“One of the major reasons for the alienation of British Muslims is a lack of clear identity.”
This lack of identity is due to a lack of assimilation and attending mosque where they are taught to hate the general British population. (Or American population, Norwegian population, etc.,Â depending on where they live.)
“Muslim children are victim of racial abuse and discrimination.”
Whatever racial discrimination there might be, it is minimal compared to the anti-Western hatred Muslims feel. Who was responsible for 7/7? Lee Rigby’s murder and other attacks and plots which are constantly being thwarted by authorities? All the sex grooming cases and rape jihad against the native British population? You are correct about the existence of racial abuse, but it is being done by Muslims against Brits.
“Muslim community does not want to integrate with the British society, indulging in incivility, anti-social behaviour, drug and knife culture, binge drinking, teenage pregnancies and abortion.”
Oh sure, such a rough bunch. If the overall British population is so unruly, why do you move there? Why do you leave your “pleasant” and “moral” Muslim countries for such a terrible “crime-infested third world nation” like the UK? And why do Muslims account for a greater percentage of the prison population than what should be their share if Muslims are so “good” and Brits are so “bad?”
“All this immigration being too high works both ways. Perhaps Britain should stop meddling with other countries and telling them how to live – or being involved in looting of other countries. Only then can we have a right to complain about immigration! Even if they speak some English, many would still resent and despise our culture and values in their thoughts. If you lived in a foreign land, would you change your ideas and beliefs? I look forward to the day we stop all the British coming to live in Spain until they can speak Spanish….At the moment there are 808,000 living here.”
Brits do not go to Spain in order to “Britishize” Spain. Most native Brits come from a Christian background, same as Spaniards, so their core values do not differ. Reasons for Brits moving to Spain include the nice weather, a taste for the culture or the beauty of the country, or a job opportunity. They do not go there to sponge off the government and actually contribute to the economy rather than bleed it dry. They also do not produce 72-page documents with lists of demands. There is no influx of crime or terrorism due to British immigrants and no Brits protesting in the streets to behead Spaniards. And the Spanish are more concerned about their Muslim population, rather than the Brits. Those are just some of the differences there.
The articles posted on this blog should make our position clear. We will not continue going back and forth on this and feel that 2000-word “comments” are just too much. Mr. Ahmad has had his opportunity to state his case, but this blog is not a forum for empty rhetoric and attacks on Western society. Take your propaganda elsewhere.
