From the Bunglawussi/Engage Â mob:
The man who claimed ” The English Are Not Worth Saving as A Race” and the “alternative Â would be too horrible to contemplate” (re Mohammedan non-assimilation) is the worst example of what a single cretin can do to destroy a country. Jack “the burqa” Straw is Â a spineless, despicable traitor. If the Brits had any sense of self-preservation they would have Â roasted this Â worthless POS Â long ago.
But no, the Brits are Â civilized. They don’t do self preservation. They commit Â collective suicide.
As the burqa debate raged in France this weekend, with the imposition of the first instant fine to a woman found wearing the burqa in a public place in Nantes, here in the UK former Justice Minister, Jack Straw, publicly apologised for having sparked controversy in October 2006 over making publicÂ his views that he would prefer Muslim women not to wear a face veil â€“ or niqab â€“ when visiting his MP’s surgery.
At a pre-election hustings event organised in Blackburn yesterday (Sunday 25th April) byÂ ENGAGE, Jack Straw, addressing a packed hall of local Muslim residents, expressed his regret at having caused a negative media storm which he acknowledged may have adversely impacted on the Muslim community.
He said: “To be blunt, if I had realised the scale of publicity that they [his comments] received in October 2006, I wouldn’t have made them and I am sorry that it has caused problems Â and I offer that apology.
“Can I just say, this is about an issue of communication (you understand). I wasn’t raising it to say it [the burqa] should be banned â€“ quite the opposite. Let me say, I’m not responsible for those in France or Germany or in this country pursuing this. That is their business. I am fundamentally opposed to what they are doing.

“Bad intention and the depiction of the Prophet is provocative…”
KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) â€” Malaysia’s conservative Islamic party PAS Friday demanded those behind the satirical US cartoon show “South Park” apologise to Muslims worldwide over its portrayal of the Prophet Mohammed.
On Thursday, the American channel airing the show removed all references to the prophet after a radical Muslim group threatened the show’s creators.
“Even though they have added the audio bleeps, ‘South Park’s producer and broadcaster should apologise to the Muslims as this is a sensitive issue,” PAS vice president Mahfuz Omar told AFP.
“The show itself spells of bad intention and the depiction of the Prophet is provocative. It creates religious tension,” he added.Â Read more…

Update from this story:Â Sydney: Buses & Burkas, in Your Face
You knew they would cave in. But so fast?
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Kadijah demandsÂ “attitude change”
A Sydney bus company has apologised to one of its customers after the driver argued with a Muslim woman over her right to wear a niqab, or veil.
Hillsbus now says its driver behaved unacceptably when he told Khadijah Ouararhni-Grech to ‘take off her mask’.
The company says its actions were born out of ignorance and not malice, but it has refused to speak publicly about the incident.
The New South Wales Government says it should serve as a clear warning to private bus operators that they need to lift their standards.
“I was approached by the bus driver who stood up from his chair and said ‘right, you can’t get on this bus with that mask on; you have to show your face and take that mask off’,” Ms Ouararhni-Grech said.
She says she told the driver it was discrimination but he still argued with her.

AnÂ apologyÂ Â (well, sort of-) fromÂ Michael Backman Â who is very sorry he got busted:
… denied he was anti-Semitic and said he believed Israel had the “absolute right to exist” …
In a letter to Jewish community leadership, Backman said he can now see “that some of the forms of words used did not adequately explain what I intended to say”.
“I do understand that an injudicious use of words and themes has caused upset in the Jewish community and for that I can only apologise,” Blackman said.
He’s been a journo for at least 10 years who doesn’t know how to use words?
Oh wait. He writes forÂ The Age.
* Ah yes, before I forget it:Â “The accusation of anti-Semitism is itself hurtful and offensive,” Mr Backman said.Â
Gee, who would have thought? Poor chap is hurt by what he said?
* Next time, useÂ Keyser TradÂ to clarify Â your statements, Backman. You’re rather unconvincing!
