Allah be praised: things are gong well in Britain. Jihadists say they’re motivated by Islam, UK govt insists they’re not
Gordon Brown: “how I singlehandedly defeated Jihad in the UK”
From Orwell’s ‘Dumber than bricks’ department:
A new counter-terrorism phrasebook has been drawn up within Whitehall to advise civil servants on how to talk to Muslim communities about the nature of the terror threat without implying they are specifically to blame.
Reflecting the government’s decision to abandon the “aggressive rhetoric” of the so-called war on terror, the guide tells civil servants not to use terms such as Islamist extremism or jihadi-fundamentalist but instead to refer to violent extremism and criminal murderers or thugs to avoid any implication that there is an explicit link between Islam and terrorism.
Because that would be un-Islamic: Narrated Abu Juhaifa:“….no Muslim should be killed for killing an infidel.” Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Num. 283.
THE executions of three 2002 Bali bombers have been pushed back again, after they won a last-ditch bid for a review of their cases.
Survivors and relatives of some of the 88 Australians who died in the bombings erupted in anger, after again learning they would have to wait longer for justice.
“I am bitterly disappointed that the Indonesian government is letting these criminals’ needs be met,” said Perth man Peter Hughes, who survived horrific injuries in the nightclub attacks organised by the trio.
“I think maybe the Indonesian government should show some strength and put these guys to death as they should be … (They) are starting to get a hero status now.”
Melbourne man David Stewart, whose son Anthony died in the bombings, said he expected more delays, and accused the Indonesian government of being scared of further bombings.
“The Indonesian government don’t want to execute them because they are afraid of more bombings,” he said.
Islamic Terrorists were planning major attacks across Europe
“This intelligence shows the breadth and span of international terrorism and anybody who thinks that the threat has either gone or is in abeyance is in cloud-cuckoo-land.”
SCOTLAND YARD is braced for a fresh wave of possible terrorist attacks against public transport after a group of suspected Islamist suicide bombers were arrested in a secret security operation at Gatwick airport.
Six Pakistani men were held under anti-terrorism laws 10 days ago after they flew in from Barcelona. The arrests were prompted by a tip-off from the Spanish intelligence services after the discovery of a suspected Al-Qaeda terror cell in the city. The cell is alleged to have planned to detonate suicide bombs on the Barcelona Metro. The Spanish warned a similar attack was being planned here.
The six Pakistanis were taken to Paddington Green police station in west London and were questioned by detectives from the Yard’s counter-terrorism unit. After being held overnight they were driven under police escort back to the airport and escorted onto a flight back to Pakistan.

CALGARY – Three Calgary Muslim women have filed a human rights complaint against a local imam, alleging they were treated unfairly at a recent meeting.
Qasira Shaheen, Robina Butt and Shugufta Iftikhar say they were discriminated against by Syed Soharwardy at an open house in November at the Al-Madinah Calgary Islamic Centre.
“We were discriminated against as women and were treated poorly, differently, negatively and adversely,” they wrote in the complaint, filed in December with the Canadian Human Rights Commission.
They claim they weren’t allowed to ask questions, were physically and verbally threatened, were made to sit in the back of the hall and were eventually forced to leave.
