Well this is interesting. I had got used to the standard response to terror. I had thought that when 22 young people get blown up by a suicide bomber in Manchester we were meant to say that it made ‘no sense’, that it ‘wouldn’t change us’ and that ‘love’ must overcome ‘hate’.
I thought that when a crowd of people get run over and a policeman stabbed to death we were meant to say ‘We may never know’ what caused such an outrage. And that when people slit the throats of Londoners while shouting ‘This is for Allah’ we agreed that only perpetrators themselves were responsible for such inexplicable actions? At most, weren’t we just meant to rouse ourselves to a chorus of ‘Don’t look back in anger’ and move on?
Well what a very different standard applies when the victims are a group of Muslims exiting a mosque.
London, June 5, 2017. A minute of silence is held at Potters Field Park, next to the City Hall, to pay tribute to the victims of the London Bridge jihadist attack three days before. Those who came have brought flowers, candles and signs bearing the usual words: “unity”, “peace” and “love”. Faces are sad but no trace of anger is visible. The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, a Muslim, gives a speech emphasizing against all evidence that the killers’ ideas have nothing to do with Islam.
A few hours after the attack, Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May also refuses to incriminate Islam, but dares to speak of “Islamic extremism”. She was immediately accused of “dividing” the country. On election day, June 8, her Conservative party lost the majority in the House of Commons. Jeremy Corbyn, a pro-terrorist, “democratic socialist”, who demands the end of British participation in the campaign against the Islamic State (ISIS), led the Labour party to thirty more seats than it had earlier. In spite of three attacks in three months, Britain does not seem to choose the path of vigilance and determination. June is not even over but the media barely talk about terrorism any more. A devastating fire destroyed a building in North Kensington, killing scores of residents. Mourning the victims seems to have completely erased all memory of those killed in the terrorist attacks.
London police have launched two investigations into the “Al Quds Day” march held in the British capital last Sunday, following complaints about antisemitic speeches and Islamist propaganda – including the flags of Lebanese terrorist organization Hezbollah – seen and heard at the event.
A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police said: “We can confirm that we have received two allegations in relation to the Al Quds march on Sunday 18 June. The allegations relate to flags displayed during the march and alleged antisemitic comments. Detectives from Westminster CID are investigating.”
England is turning into France which is turning into Lebanon. Nothing will be done about this.
Five more men have been arrested as part of a huge investigation into historical child sexual exploitation in Rotherham.
The National Crime Agency said three of the men, aged 32, 36 and 37, were arrested in Sheffield and Rotherham on Wednesday on suspicion of indecent assault and conspiracy to rape three girls under the age of 16 between 1998 and 2003.
The BBC was forced to issue two apologies after the chairman of the Iranian-linked Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC) called reformist Muslim Maajid Nawaz and political commentator Douglas Murray “hate preachers” in an interview.
At least 79 people died after the 24-storey tower in West London caught fire last week.
One of the reasons for the authorities inability to get an accurate death toll is because some of the victims are too frightened to come forward and get help.
LBC’s Senior Reporter Vincent McAviney explains: “Some of the residents are undocumented migrants or are people who were living in the tower illegally – and they’re worried that is their status is looked into, they’ll be prosecuted.
“The probelm (sic) with this is that without working out exactly who was inside, an acurate (sic) death toll can’t be known and secondly, the people that did survive can’t be rehoused or helped in any way.”
(One resident said) “Unless everyone is completely sure that this will not get you into trouble with your immigration status, it’s not going to get you into trouble with your landlord, it’s not going to get you into trouble with your benefits, people aren’t going to come forward.”
From the comments: “if you let the illegal people to be rehoused you will see a load of flats & houses being set on fire.”
