Two-thirds of British people want Islamic face veil banned; Immigration minister nixes burqa ban as "un-British"

Two Thirds Want Ban:

If you believe the mainstream media, this makes two-thirds of the British people racists and bigots. But in reality, of course, they just want to stand up for some cultural standards, and ask immigrants to conform to the customs and mores of their new home — and that is, of course, exactly what all too many Muslims are determined not to do. “Majority of Brits want burkas banned, from AFP, via JW

However, the elites know best what’s good for you:

U.K.: Immigration minister nixes burqa ban as “un-British”

Update from the Bunglawussi blog:

Tory minister says women should have the right to wear veil – Tory press is outraged (strange that this Tory minister doesn’t support the right to be un-veiled…)

See “Caroline Spelman: wearing burka can be ’empowering'” in theDaily Telegraph, “Burkas empower women: Top Tory woman insists freedom to wear Muslim veil is a right” in the Daily Mail and “Uproar after minister says: Let women wear a burkha if they want”, in the Daily Express.

Going against the will of 2/3 of British people. Are 2/3 of Britons un-British, then?

Tolerance for the intolerant is COLLECTIVE SUICIDE:

Green also says that such a ban would run contrary to the conventions of “tolerant and mutually respectful society.” Clearly, he knows nothing of Islamic law and its knack for doing just that. And for that matter, how does concealing one’s face in public foster a mutually respectful society? It is a mark of separation and distrust, and of non-engagement with “the other,” to borrow a well-worn multiculturalist term.

But, of course, one must remember that multicultural “tolerance” is a one-way street on which Western values must yield the right-of-way to galloping Sharia.

  1. Simply lobby this politician – the muslim scum certainly are, which means that the real citizens are keeping quiet. The majority want the “freedom sack” banned, so the majority should lobby for its removal from UK society. Threaten this politicians political future and results will follow.

  2. * Tolerance for the intolerant is COLLECTIVE SUICIDE:

    Don’t be afraid – islam is tolerant and peaceful…
    Don’t be afraid of Islam, says Al-Sudais

    [Sheikh Abdul Rahman Al-Sudais made the announcement while delivering his Friday sermon at the Tauheedul Islam Mosque in Blackburn, Lancashire, UK.

    The new Tauheedul Islam Mosque is the largest in Lancashire and cost 3.5 million pounds ($5.37 million). Qatar’s royal family provided an initial donation of 1.5 million pounds for the basic construction of the mosque, with the remainder generated from the Blackburn community. The community had outgrown the much smaller mosque, which was established at the same site in the 1960s.

    In his sermon, Al-Sudais said: “Islam came to protect the interests of humanity, prevent evils and build bridges with all communities. It offers a great message of mercy and tolerance.”]

    Doubt ArabNews will publish my comment 🙂

    “By their fruits you shall know them. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?” – Jesus Christ, the Son of God (Matthew 7:16)

    Behold the fruits of islamic tolerance, in its heartland of Saudi Arabia. Things not permitted in “tolerant” saudi Arabia “may include Bibles, crucifixes, statues, carvings, items with religious symbols such as the Star of David, and others. Makkah and Medina hold special religious significance and only persons of the Islamic faith are allowed entry.” (source: Saudia airline)

    “Tolerant” islam, with its bans and prohibitions, blasphemies against Jesus Christ, mocking and denial of His deity and crucifixion for sins will pass away, but the words of Jesus Christ will never pass away.

  3. Gaqlloping sharia sounds a lot like galloping diaharrea but I guess the two go hand in hand…galopping diasharia.

    If two thirds of the British people want a ban on the Islamic bags then I would call that a majority and in democracy majority rules, so I guess you could say that the Immigration Minister is un-British, not the British people who want the ban.

  4. I thought ‘British ‘ didn’t exist anymore now that we’re all multicultural .
    Ironic that they should resurrect ‘Britishness’ to protect the muslims .

  5. Let’s see what other “un-British” bans are or have been in force recently in dying Britain:

    (1) Union Flag banned on car number plates

    [By Philip Johnston, Home Affairs Editor
    Published: 12:00AM BST 26 Apr 2001

    MOTORISTS who display the Union Flag on their vehicle number plates from this autumn can be stopped by the police and prosecuted under regulations approved yesterday by MPs.

    However, it will be legal to carry the European Union symbol of 12 yellow stars on a blue background.]

    (2) Met revolt over ban on Union flag badges backing troops.

    [Byline: Benedict Moore-Bridger

    Met chiefs have ordered that the tiny badges — which cost [pounds sterling]1 with proceeds going to charity — must be removed to stop offence to the public.

    But junior officers are reportedly in “open revolt” and are continuing to wear them.]

    (3) England flag ban for taxi drivers in Canterbury

    [Canterbury City Council has said attaching England flags to cabs would breach rules on what can be displayed on public service vehicles.

    Cabbies face having their licences revoked if they ignore the ban.

    The authority has said it is happy to review the policy but that a full consultation needs to take place. ]

    (4) Banned from flying the flag: Binmen threatened with sack if they show support for England during World Cup

    [Drivers in Liverpool were ordered to sign contracts forbidding the St George’s Cross due to apparent ‘health and safety’ risks.

    A clampdown on public patriotism ahead of England’s first game against the U.S. in 15 days times has been enforced elsewhere in Britain.]

    [The binmen in Merseyside, working for private contract firm Enterprise-Liverpool, have also been banned from putting badges and stickers inside their trucks.

    Bosses said they were concerned that the items could block drivers’ views.]

    (5) England “banned” from EU maps? (Telegraph – 23 Apr 2008)

    [On St George’s Day, EU wipes England off map
    England has been wiped off a map of Europe drawn up by Brussels bureaucrats as part of a scheme that the Tories claim threatens to undermine the country’s national identity.]

    (6) Britain Cracks Down on Patriotic Displays (Moonbattery 2008)

    [As if in a purposeful effort to obliterate memories of Britain’s recent greatness, authorities have been cracking down on displays on patriotism.

    Ben Smith of Melksham was forced by police to remove an English flag from the inside of his car, lest it offend Muslim colonists.

    Hatfield Broad Oak has been decorated with patriotic bunting for its village festival going back at least to 1907. But no longer, thanks to the tried and true safety pretext. As Janet Pugh of the festival’s organizing committee laments:

    The bottom line is that Essex Highways said we didn’t have a license. We filled in application forms for a license but the red tape involved is so complicated.]

    (7) Piggy banks ‘offend UK Muslims’ (al Age – 2005)

    [British banks are banning piggy banks because they may offend some Muslims.

    Halifax and NatWest banks have led the move to scrap the time-honoured symbol of saving from being given to children or used in their advertising, the Daily Express/Daily Star group reports here.

    Muslims do not eat pork, as Islamic culture deems the pig to be an impure animal.

    Salim Mulla, secretary of the Lancashire Council of Mosques, backed the bank move.

    “This is a sensitive issue and I think the banks are simply being courteous to their customers,” he said.]

    And so on. Note that when there is a move to ban burkhas & the like, it is “islamophobic” and “racist”, but when UK flags, ham sandwiches, piggy banks & the like are banned, it is “courteous” and “culturally sensitive”.

    islam – all take, no give, no future.

  6. Burkas empower women:

    I wonder if Caroline Spelman who insists the freedom sack is a right and finds it ‘liberating’ ever thought about the right not to wear it? Does she feel weakened or cheapened not wearing it? Perhaps we should insist that she wears it and knows her place.

    The mind boggling stupidity behind “let women wear a burkha if they want” compares with ”let women have clitoridectomy if they want, let women be chattel if they want, beat women because that’s what they want, stone women for adultery because that’s what they want….
    There is no end to this!

  7. “Burka r worn to cover the truth .These people do no want to connect with the british and that their aim is to take over this land one day. “OPEN UR EYES PEOPLE!” Who is really running this country?
