UK pol on London jihadi: “The fact that the man is a Muslim is utterly and completely irrelevant”

Digby Jones is the former Minister of State for Trade and Investment in the UK. Here he is denying the ancient adage that one must know one’s enemy in order to defeat that enemy. The fact that Khalid Masood was a Muslim is only irrelevant if his Muslim identity had nothing to do with his motive for mounting the attack. But Jones doesn’t know whether it did or not; he is just assuming that it didn’t because to say otherwise would be politically inconvenient. If the London attacker had been a white supremacist, would Jones be saying that his motive was irrelevant? Of course not. If there were an organized group of international white supremacists calling for terror attacks in Britain and elsewhere, and vowing to destroy the British government and replace it with a white supremacist regime, and there were numerous white supremacists in Britain publicly avowing that they were on board with this program, and one of them drove into a crowd of pedestrians and then stabbed a police officer, would Digby Jones be saying that the attacker’s white supremacism was irrelevant?

Why more Muslims mean more terror attacks

Normally, my weekly show On the Hunt is available to Rebel Premium subscribers only. However, last night’s episode — shot in response to the Westminster terror attack in London — is one I’d like as many people as possible to see. So join me and my guest, Rebel Contributor Tommy Robinson, to talk about the attack, and the broader questions it raises.

De Blasio: We are preparing NYC Schools to resist ICE agents

At a press conference in front of New York’s Tweed Courthouse on Tuesday, Mayor Bill de Blasio laid out the city’s plans to resist U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents in the Trump era.

There are “deep fears and concerns” among immigrant families after President Trump announced new ICE protocols that give agents more freedom to hold illegal immigration raids, the mayor noted.

“Parents don’t know what the policies will mean for their children,” he said.

That’s where the sanctuary city is planning to step in.

Female-Run D.C. Distillery Releases Rye Inspired by Hillary Clinton

The owners of Republic Restoratives, a female-run craft distillery in D.C., spent months concocting a spirit worthy of celebrating their next president’s inauguration. Then, well, the election happened, and Rodham Rye sort of made no sense. But now, after “a period of self-described mourning,” Rachel Gardner and Pia Carusone have decided to move forward with the whiskey anyway.

Mosques urged to step up security amid fear of vigilante reprisal attacks

Mohammed Shafiq, chief executive of the Ramadhan Foundation, said he had written to mosques urging them to work with local police to discuss security measures.

Swedes Begin Construction Of Police Fortress In “Little Mogadishu”

The police station will feature bullet proof windows, walls reinforced with sheet metal, and fencing around it, possibly with electrified barbed wire. So it will look more like a military installation than anything. Also it will be designated as “specially protected,” which means a year in prison for anyone even throwing a stone at it.

Canadians think problem of Islamophobia overblown

If left up to average Canadians, controversial M-103 would have been toast.

And an Angus Reid Institute poll also found that most believe politicians and the media are overblowing the problem of Islamophobia.
