UK: Govt has Funded the Spread of Islam

No, this is not an April Fools joke. Most of my readers know that I continually speak out against the “moderate” Islam is coming to the rescue fantasy. One of the reasons I say this, is because the infidel does not get to dictate to Muslims what Islam is. In this article we learn that in their attempt to create some form of “moderate” Islam, the UK has wasted millions of dollars, and has actually helped Islam advance across the country. Here is a clue for the governments of the UK and USA. Stop funding Muslims!

The Prevent strategy: a textbook example of how to alienate just about everybody

The Government has spent millions of pounds on a strategy to prevent Muslim radicalisation that’s counterproductive, writes Douglas Murray.

As we are reminded on a daily basis, there is very little that government does well. Perhaps what it can do least well is theology.

Yet through its “Prevent” strategy, that is exactly what this Government has tried to do. In the past few years, it has spent millions of pounds trying to prevent Muslim radicalisation. But the effort was flawed from the outset and as the Communities and Local Government Select Committee warned yesterday, the efforts made could be backfiring.

The Prevent programme was set up after the 2005 London bombings as part of the Government’s counter-terrorism strategy. Yet the security services already do counter-terrorism and are remarkably successful at it. So the purpose of Prevent was not only unclear, it was a classic example of government metastasizing.

It attempted to go far beyond what government could or should do. It aimed to tackle radicalisation by providing a “counter-narrative” to that of al-Qaeda and other extremist groups. And so, instead of teaching British values and beliefs and otherwise allowing the relevant authorities to enforce the law, Prevent got involved in attempting to create what one Imam recently described to me as “MI5 Islam”.

This meant that from the outset Prevent got bogged down in the interminable ongoing civil wars in the Islamic faith while doing little to tackle the real problems. It did not stop extremist speakers being given platforms at mosques and universities across the country, nor even, as it turned out, speaking at Prevent-sponsored events.

But it did become, predictably enough, a cash cow which any enterprising Muslim group could tap into. Government funding on what were called “key Prevent deliverables” in the period 2008-2009 alone was over £140 million. Much of this money went on things which were – at best – many steps away from dealing with what drives young Muslims into extremism.

Barking Mosque received more than £5,000 to provide rap “workshops” and lunches. Something called “Bedford: Faith in Queens Park” received £9,000 for its basketball club, another £10,000 for its cricket club and £11,000 for “fusion youth singing”. It received £1,350 for a talk on “prophetic medicine”. The Cherwell “Banbury Fair Trade Society” was paid by Prevent to deliver a “multicultural food festival”.

Across the country Prevent money went to boxing, karate, judo and five-a-side football clubs, while the 1st Bristol Muslim Scout Group bafflingly received £3,180 of Prevent money for camping equipment.

Most disturbingly of all, thousands of pounds of taxpayers’ money was used not to stop fundamentalism, but simply to teach Islam. Just last year, one highly conservative Muslim organisation received two payments of £20,000 to proselytise for Islam.

It didn’t take long for other “community leaders” to realise something was deeply wrong. Why should only Muslim communities receive hundreds of millions of pounds? Say you were a Hindu boy-scout in your leaky tent at scout camp. Would you not wonder at the spanking new facilities enjoyed by your Muslim neighbour? Why have young Sikh, Buddhist or – imagine – white working-class youngsters not had ping-pong tables and karate lessons thrown in their direction?

Indarjit Singh, the Director of the Network of Sikh Organisations, made exactly this point when he spoke before the Committee of MPs. As Singh said, “rather than tackling underlying issues” Prevent is “producing a sense of victimisation among Muslims and a growing sense of resentment and marginalisation in other religious communities.”

This is exactly what some of us predicted would happen – that if you privileged the Muslim community it would not be long before other faith groups would notice and get aggrieved themselves. Britain should be rewarding ethnic and religious groups who integrate into British life. Instead we are doing the opposite.

It is a good job that the MPs heard Singh and a few others because otherwise their committee was notable for the fact that it listened to some people who can be alarmingly unhelpful. In fact, it constituted exactly the sort of people who have helped lead Britain into such a fragmenting mess. They included a Khomeinist group, the Islamic Human Rights Commission. They included professional race-relations industry “experts”, who have done so much to deform this country in recent years. And they included groups who gave glowing endorsements to Prevent precisely because they receive huge funding from the pot. The way the committee went about its procedures was a textbook example of how not to hear a broad range of views. So if it has landed on the right conclusions – including that it is very hard to see what good Prevent has done – it has done so for the wrong reasons.

The next government is going to have to make substantial cuts. There could be no better place to start than scrapping Prevent – to be remembered as a textbook example of how to alienate absolutely everybody.

Islam in Italy Conference=Plotting to Takeover Italy

I don’t know about you guys, but I consider all pro-Sharia Muslims the enemy. If it were up to me, they would not be allowed to assemble like this. Allowing them to assemble, plot, and recruit within our countries is equivalent to having a life-threatening disease, and doing nothing to prevent dying a slow death. Because that is what Islam is doing to life as we know it. It is slowly destroying Western Civilization.

“Are they waiting for anything except the Hour to come to them

As one of these signs, Imam Ahmad reports in his Musnad that
Abdullah bin Amr bin Al-‘As (ra) mentioned: “Whilst we were
around the Prophet (saw) writing he was asked, ‘Which of the
two cities will be opened first, Constantinople or Rome?’ He
(the Prophet Muhammad) answered, ‘The city of Heraclius will
be opened first!'”

The Great Ottoman, Sultan Muhammad Fatih (rh) fulfilled the
first part of this prophecy by conquering Constantinople.

Thus, remains the second part. Having been forced out of
Andalusia, and more recently, dispersed across the Balkan
states, the city of Gaius Julius Caesar (Rome) remains. So
let the da’wah begin …

There will be a short presentation on Islam in Italy by the
Association of Italian Muslim Sisters with proceeds going
towards supporting Italian Muslims. Also, enjoy a 3-course

US Prison System Sued for Isolating Muslims

Here is we go again, our authorities try to protect us, and Muslims look to reverse policies by claiming discrimination. For the record, the Fort Hood terrorist Hasan also claimed discrimination.

US prison system sued for isolating Muslims

The US Bureau of Prisons is being sued for allegedly discriminating against Muslims by placing them in secret prisons where communication is severely restricted. The so-called “State-side Guantanamo” facilities are the targets of the case filed against the government by the Center for Constitutional Rights.

The US Federal prison system has two facilities, referred to as Communications Management Units (CMUs), where all correspondence and telephone calls to and from the inmates are monitored. The CMUs were set up during the Bush administration when authorities discovered that some Islamic militants were able to send messages abroad from their prison cells.

According the the Bureau of Prisons (BOP), the 76 inmates housed in the isolation units are there to prevent them from furthering acts of terrorism. But civil liberties advocates say the extreme conditions in the CMUs amount to abuse and that the programme violates the inmate’s constitutional rights.

The Center for Constitutional Rights filed a lawsuit against the government on Tuesday on behalf of five current and former inmates held in CMUs. The NGO argues that the inmates were held in extreme environments, that are not warranted given the nature of the crimes for which they were convicted.

Rachel Meeropol, a staff attorney at the Center for Constitutional Rights, says the conditions at the CMU’s are inhumane:

“…prisoners are being moved without explanation, and they’re subject to extremely restrictive conditions of confinement. The conditions include a lack of any physical contact with visiting family members or friends. Even when they have young children they cannot hold them or greet them.”

A lack of process
The Center for Constitutional Rights acknowledges that there may be some inmates who need to be isolated to prevent them from aiding in terrorism. But the group points out that the government still has an obligation to set out a transparent policy that outlines the process by which inmates are selected for placement in a CMU.

Critics of the programme say this lack of process makes CMUs ripe for discrimination. And the court papers filed by the Center for Constitutional Rights state that two-thirds of the CMU inmates are Muslims, a figure that over-represents the proportion of Muslim prisoners by more than 1000 percent. Ms Meeropol says the CMU programme flies in the face of US Constitutional legal precedence:

“…because of the lack of process, these units violate the Constitutional right to procedural due process, as well as amounting to cruel and unusual punishment. We’re also claiming that the units violate indvidual substantive due process rights and First Amendment rights to freedom of association.”

Finding a solution
Bureau of Prisons director, Harley Lappin, sounded resolute when he told a US congressional budget hearing that the CMUs had been set up in response to complaints from Congress that inmates were inappropriately communicating. Still, the BOP has announced that they will post unit rules in a few weeks and those regulations will be open to public discussion for 90 days.

But prisoner rights advocates say the BOP is still not doing enough to provide public review of the CMU programme. And Ms Meeropol believes there are only two ways in which the government can fix the situation:

“The Bureau of Prisons can either implement some level of process to ensure individuals are not being moved into these secretive units for discriminatory or retaliatory reasons… or [they can] scrap the units all together. We’re asking either that the CMUs be shut down or that they brought to meet Constitutional standards.”

Russia: Nine More Dead in Islamic Homicide Attacks

These Islamic attacks in Russia have come just days after dozens were killed by homicide bombers. Russia let Chechnya govern themselves, but of course Muslims are never satisfied. It is time for Mr. Putin to take the gloves off, and give the Islamic community a reason to play the victim card.

Suicide bomber caused 2nd blast in Russia’s Dagestan

31/03/2010
A suicide bomber dressed as policeman is responsible for one of the blasts in Russia’s North Caucasus republic of Dagestan, local police and investigators said on Wednesday.

At least nine people including the local police chief were killed and six others were injured in two explosions in the town of Kizlyar on Wednesday morning.

An investigator told RIA Novosti that the suicide bomber struck as a team of investigators was working at the scene of the first explosion.

Islamic “Peace Conference Scandinavia 2010″~ Video

This is the video advertisement to the Islamic “Peace Conference Scandinavia 2010″. In the video we learn….well we are told that Islam is never wrong, and British traitor Abdul Raheem Green tells us that Allah never does any injustice to his slaves. Hmmm…..has Green actually ever seen how millions upon millions of Muslims live?

In the past Green has called for Muslims to join the jihad, and he clearly supports Islamic Law over the laws of the UK. I will say this over and over. Sharia Law needs to be banned from non-Islamic countries, and any Muslim that calls for it after the law is passed, shall be arrested and deported if possible. All Sharia loving Muslims are to be looked upon as enemies of the state. Just as Nazis were.
