Muslim
Civil Rights
Group Founder
Donates Money To
Holocaust Denier


A founding member of the Muslim Public Affairs Council of the United Kingdom has been exposed as a financial contributor to Holocaust denier, David Irving:


One of Britain’s most prominent speakers on Muslim issues is today exposed as a supporter of David Irving, the controversial historian who for years denied the Holocaust took place.
Asghar Bukhari, a founder member of the Muslim Public Affairs Committee (MPAC), which describes itself as Britain’s largest Muslim civil rights group, sent money to Irving and urged Islamic websites to ask visitors to make donations to his fighting fund.


Bukhari contacted the discredited historian, sentenced this year to three years in an Austrian prison for Holocaust denial, after reading his website. He headed his mail to Irving with a quotation attributed to the philosopher John Locke: ‘All that is needed for evil to triumph is for good people to stand idle.’

In one email Bukhari tells Irving: ‘You may feel like you are on your own but rest assured many people are with you in your fight for the Truth.’ Bukhari pledges to make a donation of £60 to Irving’s fighting fund and says that he has asked ‘a few of my colleagues to send some in too’. He also offers to send Irving a book, They Dare to Speak Out, by Paul Findley, a former US Senator, who has attacked his country’s close relationship with Israel. Bukhari says Findley ‘has suffered like you in trying to expose certain falsehoods perpetrated by the Jews’.

In a follow-up letter, Bukhari writes: ‘Here is the cheque I promised. Good luck, if there is any other way I can help please don’t hestitate to call me. I have also asked many Muslim websites to create links to your own and ask for donations.’


The MPAC-UK bills itself as Britain's foremost Muslim Civil Rights Group.

Here's a quote from the Congressman Paul Findley whom Bukhari cites:


In March, 1992, Illinois Representative Paul Findley said in The Washington Report on Middle East Affairs, "It is interesting - but not surprising - to note that in all the words written and uttered about the Kennedy assassination, Israel's intelligence agency, the Mossad, has never been mentioned."

Considering that the Mossad is quite possibly the most ruthless and efficient intelligence agency in the world, it is peculiar that they have never been scrutinized in relation to the Kennedy assassination...."


In short, Paul Findley is a loon.

Wafa Sultan Says
Bush Is Wrong
To Call
Islam A
Religion Of Peace


Several months back, Wafa Sultan, a Saudi-dissident living in the United States, jolted the world with an appearence on Al Jazeera Television and spoke her mind on Islam. She told the absolute unadulterated truth. I probably don't have to tell you that her candor has won her multiple death threats.

Watch this video from Ms. Sultan's appearence, and then read what follows:





Now, Wafa Sultan has some harsh words for George Bush:


Bush empowering terrorists, charges vocal Muslim critic

Wafa Sultan says 'religion of peace' pronouncement undermines her efforts to battle religion's 'barbarism'

President Bush is undermining criticism vital to the survival of Western civilization and empowering terrorist leaders by proclaiming Islam a "religion of peace," says one of the most outspoken critics to emerge from the Muslim world in recent years.

Wafa Sultan, a native of Syria, seized attention worldwide in February when her electrifying interview on Al-Jazeera television spread across the Internet through a video clip produced by the Middle East Media Research Institute.

Named this year to Time Magazine's list of 100 influential people in the world, Sultan spoke with WND after addressing a symposium on radical Islam in Las Vegas hosted by America's Truth Forum. She understands Bush's position as president and believes he is only trying to be diplomatic, but insists, nevertheless, his words are "empowering" Muslim leaders whose ultimate aim is for Islamic law to govern the world.

"I believe he undermines our credibility by saying that," said Sultan. "We came from Islam, and we know what kind of religion Islam is.

What Is Europe,
Uh, I Mean
Eurabia Thinking?


The United Nations voted 156-7 to condemn Israel's incursion into the Gaza Strip. Israel's Ambassador walked out of the session in response. The reason the Israeli Defense Force has been in Gaza is because the Palestinians have been lobbing missiles from there for months now. So, Israel is trying to weed out the terrorists.

Roger Simon comments:


It's no surprise that the Islamic nations vote this way. They are hardly democratic and doctrinally racist against Jews (dhimmitude, etc.). But I always wonder about the Europeans. What are they thinking? Of course anyone with an IQ in the proverbial triple-digits knows that Israel pulled out of Gaza unilaterally not very long ago and that since then, virtually non-stop, Palestinians of various "progressive" stripes (Islamic Jihad, Hamas, Fatah) have been lobbing missiles into Israeli territory. What are the Israelis supposed to do? Allow them to continue?

If Spain were lobbing missiles into France on a daily basis, it's likely the Spaniards would be hit with a nuclear attack. The Israelis have been remarkably gentle in their response, if you consider historical comparisons.

So what is the motivation for the Euros? Part of it is certainly a desire to justify their own unconscionable treatment of the Jews during the Holocaust. (The Jews are bad, therefore what we did is not so atrocious... but, of course, it is.)

But this hunger to escape responsibility has been augmented of late by an escalating desire to make nice with the Arab and Islamic worlds. And as we know, it's not just about oil; Europe itself is now increasingly Islamic. As Mark Steyn points out, soon enough several European countries may be living under some version of sharia. At that point, their attitudes toward Israel won't be subject to debate. They will be written in the Koran.


Los Angeles
Volunteers
To
Give Up
Its Logo


Can you imagine Coca Cola, or McDonald's, deciding to just relinquish their corporate logos? You know, no more Golden Arches, no more curli-cue cursive writing laced into the red and white. Well, the city of Los Angeles has volunteered to do so.

The City Council has voted to eliminate the famed fanned palm for which it has become known. When people think of Los Angeles, they think of the palm trees lining the streets, right? Well, no more. And, you're not going to believe the wacky reason for this decision:


For more than a hundred years, the graceful, bushy-topped fan palm has been an iconic symbol of L.A.'s balmy, postcard lifestyle. But city leaders now want to put an end to the tree's reign on the grounds it is bad for the environment. City Council members voted this week to halt the placement of fan palms on parkways, median strips and other city-owned property where nearly 75,000 of them now grow. Instead, the city will plant only sycamores, oaks and other leafy native species that will contribute shade, collect rainwater and release oxygen across the Los Angeles Basin.

The fan palm may be an emblematic part of Los Angeles, but its skimpy canopy is cheating city dwellers of the benefit of real trees since palms "are technically a type of grass and not trees," as a unanimously approved council resolution put it. San Pedro-area Councilwoman Janice Hahn's motion, passed Tuesday, limits future use of palms along city streets unless they are needed to be consistent with existing plantings or are specifically requested by a council office or community group.

If new palms are planted, "fan palms should be discouraged" ... The vote comes as many fan palms planted by developers in the late 19th and early 20th century are entering the last phase of their life span. It also comes as the city is embarking on Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's ambitious goal to plant 1 million new trees.


Corporations spend billions of dollars to ensure that their logos are recognized on a national and international basis, but the LA City Council has decided that theirs is expendable. There was no public outcry calling for this decision. Clearly, this is just a wacko politician angling for the environmentalist vote. This is among the stupidest decisions in history. Let's see, Pharoah ignores Moses' warnings, France sells the Louisiana territories to America, the Red Sox trade Ruth to the Yankees, Paul McCartney marries Heather Mills, and now this. But, you know what? I am absolutely friggin' ecstatic over this.

The reasoning behind this legislation makes it a damning display of the transcendent stupidity of environmentalist demands in every aspect of life. From "second-hand smoke" to spotted owls, to butterfly wing hurricanes, to global ice age then global warming then global ice age then global warming again, environmentalist philosophy is childish fears and dreams writ large in the adult world. Environmentalists are always positing ecological disasters emanating from the slightest faux pas of mankind, as if when George Bush farts it could cause Hurricane Katrina.

I will enjoy watching the idiots at the LA City Council, as they slowly impale themselves on the spear of this decision. It will take time, but gradually tourism will be affected, revenue will decline and, eventually, business will demand that the palms be reinstated. And then,UCLA students will have another reason to march in the streets against the fascist conservatives who want to wreak havoc on the mother nature by lining the streets of LA with palm trees once again. Yes, I can see it; the New American Revolution will be fought over such issues. "We want alms, not palms. Reinstate the ban on palms that fan."

Blondie


Ooh la la. She's still got it.


The Groove Is In Your Heart


One of the coolest bands of the early 90's; Dee-Lite. I saw these guys at the Palladium in Los Angeles. One of the most greatest, and yet most bizarre nights of my life.

"Aw man, you guys are crazy."



France -
Just Itching
For
A Fight
With Israel


Zis iz true, we are, how you say,
in a state of preparation.

A week ago, France told us they had been just seconds away from firing on Israeli jets patrolling in Lebanon. This week, they say they have taken "preparatory steps" to be ready to attack Israel:


TYRE, Lebanon (AFP) - French UN anti-aircraft batteries have taken "preparatory steps" to respond to Israeli jets violating Lebanese airspace, despite global criticism of such incursions.

"The anti-aircraft unit of the (French) battalion took initial preparatory steps to respond to these actions," Milos Strugar, spokesman for the UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) told AFP on Friday.

He said "UNIFIL observed and reported 14 Israeli air violations this morning, on November 17, 2006, and 11 of these violations occurred in the area of operation of the French battalion with UNIFIL."

UNIFIL Force Commander General Alain Pellegrini "strongly protested to the Israeli authorities and asked them to cease these actions which are unacceptable and in violation of Resolution 1701," the spokesman said.

Strugar said the French battalion took action to respond "in accordance with UNIFIL rules of engagements and UN Security Council Resolution 1701."

"They stipulate that in implementing their mandate, all UNIFIL troops may exercise the inherent right of self-defence and take all necessary action to protect UN personnel, facilities, installations and equipment," he said.

Strugar said the overflights took place in the central sector of southern Lebanon where the multinational UNIFIL force was boosted to more than 9,000 troops after the Israeli-Hezbollah war in July and August.

"In one instance, two Israeli F15 jets flew over the area at low altitude and high speed," he said.
"At the same time, two Israeli reconnaissance RC12 aircraft were circling above the headquarters of the French battalion located in Jabal Marun," east of the southern port city of Tyre, he said.



Now, why would Israel want to attack France? How stupid is that? Why do you think the French are citing "the inherent right of self-defense"? Do you really believe France believes Israel will attack?

What a joke.

And, why is it that France wants to act in "self-defense" when they aren't even being attacked, but when Israel actually is attacked and they respond by going into Gaza to root out the terrorists, it isn't considered self-defense?

Such questions will never be answered, because the answers lay beyond reason.

My final word on this? I think it would be pretty funny if France attacked Israel. Have you ever seen a dog jump on someone only to get whacked and run away with its tail between its legs?


When
The Band
You're In
Starts Playing
Different Tunes


Pink Floyd's famous lyric from the song Us And Them,

When the band you're in starts playing different tunes
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon

was directed at Pink Floyd's founding member Syd Barrett. Barrett, whose mental problems, exacerbated by drug use, caused him to lose the thread of a song midway through, and actually begin to play a different song from the rest of the band. Barrett had to be dismissed from Pink Floyd in 1967 because he left the land of reality and went to live, ostensibly, on the dark side of Earth's primary orbiting satellite.

Well, fellow Pink Floyd founder, Roger Waters, also left the land of reality many years ago. Clinically speaking, Waters is not insane, but he does not live in the same world of cause and effect that the rest of us do. In Waters world, Democracy, apparently, floated down with the gentle dew of the morning, born pristine and perfect. Certainly, it was not born of war between America and England - no - because nothing good can come of war. (Oh yes, and also, remember, the rich rock star is a socialist):


Recently, I attended the Roger Waters concert at Madison Square Garden in New York City. In 1965, Waters co-founded the great British rock band Pink Floyd, which produced several unforgettable concept albums. It was a joy seeing Waters, who is still in top form at age 63, masterfully perform many classic Pink Floyd tracks, including the album “Dark Side of the Moon” (1973) in its entirety. Unfortunately, the concert’s politics failed to match the excellent quality of the music.

When Waters performed “The Fletcher Memorial Home” from Pink Floyd’s album, “The Final Cut” (1983), the large screen behind him broadcast a video that compared Osama bin Laden, Saddam Hussein, Joseph Stalin, and Kim Jong-Il to President Ronald Reagan and President George W. Bush.

A self-described socialist and militant pacifist, Waters has always taken an interest in politics. One track, “Get Your Filthy Hands Off My Desert,” from “The Final Cut,” equates British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher with General Leopoldo Galtieri, Argentina’s military dictator who seized power in 1981 and invaded the Falkland Islands in 1982.

In recent years, Waters has bitterly attacked Prime Minister Tony Blair for participating in the U.S.-led invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq.

As a private citizen, Waters has the right to speak out on any issue. Disagreeing with him or any celebrity, left or right, is not censorship. I believe that the comparisons Waters is making during his current tour are not only offensive, but reveal substantial ignorance on his part.

Reagan, Thatcher, Bush, and Blair all came to power by winning elections. Those who opposed their views had the opportunity to vote against them. By contrast, Stalin, Hussein, Kim Jong-Il, and Galtieri never allowed free elections in their countries or any opposition to their rule.

Reagan and Thatcher gave up power voluntarily. Blair is expected to step down next year. Bush will leave office on January 20, 2008. How often do dictators give up power voluntarily and peacefully? Despite his advancing age and serious illness, Fidel Castro refuses to relax his grip on the Cuban people 47 years after seizing power.

In Great Britain, the United States, and in any democratic country, Waters enjoys the freedom to criticize the government, including its leaders and policies. Additionally, Reagan, Thatcher, Bush, and Blair never made any effort to silence Waters. People who live in dictatorships don’t have that freedom.
If Waters were Cuban, Castro would have thrown him into prison, where thousands of political dissidents presently suffer. Both Saddam Hussein and Kim Jong-Il probably would have had Waters tortured and then executed for opposing their dictatorial rule.


In 1990, Waters organized a concert in Berlin to celebrate the downfall of communism in Eastern Europe. Did it ever occur to Waters why the Berlin Wall finally fell? The combined leadership of Reagan, Thatcher, and Pope John Paul II made it happen. They helped extend freedom to hundreds of millions of people who were being repressed by communist dictatorships. Today, people in Eastern Europe and the old Soviet Union can choose their leaders, have a say in their governments’ policies, and even enjoy Pink Floyd without being harassed by the secret police.
Apparently, Roger Waters is like many ideologues on the right and left. They think democracy works only when people who agree with them win elections.


I myself voted against President Bill Clinton twice. Although I was disappointed that he won, I never thought there was something evil afoot in the republic. I often rolled my eyes when I heard conservative extremists accuse him of orchestrating several murders and peddle other conspiracy theories about him.

Would it have been appropriate for the right to equate Clinton to Slobodan Milosevic, the late dictator of Yugoslavia and “The Butcher of the Balkans”? Was President Jimmy Carter no different than Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini? Where does it end?


It ends on the dark side of the moon, my friend. It ends in the eclipse of reason. And, that's not all. The moon gets sucked into a black hole, and when it crosses the event horizon, it is the conflation of everything, everything good is evil, and everything evil is good, and we are all together.

Reason is being able to make distinctions. And, one of the most reasonable of distinctions to make is to understand that oftimes those who do enormous good in the world, also have their dark sides. Yes, both George Bush and America are guilty of doing bad things at time, but that does not make either one "evil". Nor does the fact that Hitler loved animals make him a good person. Roger Waters, himself, is not a bad man. That he is a confused fool only causes trouble because of the fact that millions listen to him. But, you know what, I will still go on listening to his music anyway ... once in awhile.

Sadly, though, his music really isn't any good anymore. I really only like the old stuff. The world has moved on and is playing different tunes now. Too bad Roger Waters hasn't noticed.

Little Green Footballs Is The Best


I'm on the road this week, without much time to post, so with my apologies stated up front, I'm just going to rip off Little Green Footballs for today.

There's just too much important stuff over there.

For instance, they have the story of The Associated Press whitewashing Hizbollah's aims. They tell us that Hizbollah is continuing it's efforts for change. What they don't tell you is:


The “change” Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah has in mind is the overthrow of Lebanon’s government and the installation of a Khomeini-style radical Islamic state, ruled by shari’a law. But you won’t get that information from the AP, or their Arab writers who file thinly disguised propaganda for terrorists.

Link: http://littlegreenfootballs.com/weblog/?entry=23344_Hizballah-_Tireless_Advocates_for_Change&only


In the next story, Charles points out that the "uncovered Meat" Imam (you know, the Imam who says that women who are raped ought to be arrested and imprisoned) is reneging on his promise to step down. Oh yes, and he's taking back all of his apologies:


EMBATTLED Muslim cleric Sheik Taj al-Din al-Hialy has vowed he will not resign, complaining he is a victim of media propaganda and exaggeration.

The cleric has been under pressure to step down since he sparked outrage with his comments, in a Ramadan sermon in Sydney in September, likening immodestly dressed women to uncovered meat, and suggesting they invited sexual assault.

Asked on the Nine Network’s Sixty Minutes program tonight whether he had thought about resigning since news of his comments broke, Sheik Hilaly said: “Confronted with this campaign against me, no”.

“I accept the challenge and I’m not going to give in against any power,” he said through an interpreter.

Sheik Hilaly complained that his comments about women had been taken out of context.

“I am outspoken, and I have the courage to say the truth,” he told interviewer Ray Martin.

(Link: http://littlegreenfootballs.com/weblog/?entry=23338_Another_Islamist_Laughs_at_the_West&only )

The truth, huh? The truth is he lives in pre-Medieval times. He is a modern primitve loony. And, he ought not be allowed to enjoy the fruits of Western Civilization. We should remove all such people from society. The man is an advocate for Sharia law. Sharia is the Islamic Constitution. It is, in fact, the constitution of Saudi Arabia. As such, any person who advocates for Sharia Law in a Western Country is advocating for the overthrow of the existing constitution.

In short, he is guilty of sedition.

Next story, the media is shilling for Cat Steven (who converted to Islam about thirty years back.) His name is not Cat Stevens anymore. Instead, it is Yusuf Islam. But, that doesn't stop the media from calling him Cat Stevens. Nor does the media tell you that Yusuf supports the fatwa on Salman Rushdie, donates money to Hamas, and is apparently very cozy with the “Blind Sheikh,” Omar Abdel-Rahman, currently serving a life sentence for plotting terror attacks in the US.

LGF has audio tape which is very condemning of the disgusting Yusuf.

Finally, in the most illuminating story of them all, we have final confirmation that when the Mainstream American Media lies about Israel, they do it on purpose. Check this out:


You’re not going to believe this one.

All our suspicions about mainstream media slanting and distorting the news from the Middle East are confirmed in a bombshell of a post by Bruno Stevens, at the Lightstalkers pro photographers’ forum: The Lebanon ‘garbage dump’ story: complete explanation. (Hat tip: Snapped Shot.)

His photograph, published by both US News and World Report and Time Magazine, had a caption describing the scene as the wreckage of an Israeli jet shot down by Hizballah. In this post, Stevens reveals that the captions he sent in with his pictures described the scene accurately—but editors at the magazines changed the captions to completely alter the story.

This caption clearly says that there is no proof that an Israeli jet had been shot down and that the objective was indeed to destroy a legitimate military target.

...A week later TIME published this image shot at the same time as the first...

They choose to caption it this way (I had NO control in this matter), they HAD my original caption: “The wreckage of a downed Israeli jet that was targeting Hizballah trucks billows smoke behind a Hizballah gunman in Kfar Chima, near Beirut. Jet fuel set the surrounding area ablaze.”

The anti-Israel bias of mainstream media has never been revealed more nakedly; the editors who selected this photograph deliberately changed the caption to convey an anti-Israel message, throwing the truth right out the window to do it.

And even more damning is the photo they chose not to publish, showing a medium range ground-to-ground missile launcher hidden in a civilian truck—on a Lebanese Army base. Stevens explains:

This is a very important piece of evidence showing probable collusion between Hezbollah and the Lebanese Army, there is little doubt that the Lebanese Army was aware of the presence of at least one missile launcher and at least one large missile on their parking lot. The size of the launcher, destroyed a couple of days later from the ground by an unknown party suggest missiles 10 to 14 meters long.

There were 6 to 8 large articulated trucks parked there, making it a very legitimate target for the Israeli Air Force, quite far away from civilian houses.

As I’ve written before, mainstream media is an absolute disgrace—and this time we can’t even blame it on local stringers doing the work of Hizballah. These distortions were perpetrated by Western editors, sitting in comfortable offices, demonizing Israel and covering up evidence of Hizballah war crimes and collusion with the Lebanese Army.

As Brian at Snapped Shot notes, we owe a debt of gratitude to Bruno Stevens for telling the truth about his photos.

Netanyahu: Iran Preparing Another Holocaust


From the Israeli newspaper, Haaretz:


LOS ANGELES - Drawing a direct analogy between Iran and Nazi Germany, Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu asserted Monday that the Iranian nuclear program posed a threat not only to Israel, but to the entire western world. There was "still time," however, to prevent Tehran from acquiring nuclear weapons, he said.

"It's 1938 and Iran is Germany. And Iran is racing to arm itself with atomic bombs," Netanyahu told delegates to the annual United Jewish Communities General Assembly, repeating the line several times, like a chorus, during his address. "Believe him and stop him," the opposition leader said of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. "This is what we must do. Everything else pales before this."

While the Iranian president "denies the Holocaust," Netanyahu said, "he is preparing another Holocaust for the Jewish state."

Speaking on Army Radio on Tuesday, Netanyahu hinted that Israel possesses the military capabilities necessary for curbing by itself the Iranian nuclear threat, declining to specify what these entail.

The Likud chairman said "I don't want to analyze the capability required to eliminate [the Iranian] threat, but this capability exists," when told by host Razi Barkai that Israel lacks the ability to eliminate Tehran's nuclear program by military means.

"This capability is eroded over time, and if we wait years then obviously this capability would not exist anymore ... but right now I disagree with the claim that nothing can be done against Iran," he added.

When asked if Bush could afford embarking on another "military adventure" after Iraq, Netanyahu said acting on the Iranian nuclear program would not be adventurous but necessary.

"... Israel would certainly be the first stop on Iran's tour of destruction, but at the planned production rate of 25 nuclear bombs a year ... [the arsenal] will be directed against 'the big Satan,' the U.S., and the 'moderate Satan,' Europe," Netanyahu said.

"Iran is developing ballistic missiles that would reach America, and now they prepare missiles with an adequate range to cover the whole of Europe," he added.

"No one cared"
Criticizing the international community in his GA speech for not acting more forcefully in trying to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear power - "No one cared then and no one seems to care now," he said, again drawing on the Nazi parallel - Netanyahu warned that Tehran's nuclear and missile program "goes way beyond the destruction of Israel - it is directed to achieve world-wide range. It's a global program in the service of a mad ideology."

Large sections of the international community, he said, also misunderstood the nature of radical Islam and its role in the Mideast conflict. "What happens in Iran affects what happens in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, not the other way round," he said.

Netanyahu said he believed that Iran could still be stopped from acquiring nuclear weapons. "There is still time. All ways must be considered. We can't let this thing happen," he said, but did not outline specific measures he thought should be taken.

Referring to Israel's preemptive strike in the 1967 War, he did say that stopping Iran required "preemptive leadership. Preemption requires will and vision."

"Noone will defend the Jews if the Jews don't defend themselves," he said to loud applause. "Iran's nuclear ambitions have to be stopped."

Iranian President Says Israel's "Destruction" Is Near


From Agence French Press, via Drudge:


According to the Iranian media Monday, Iranian President Mahoud Ahmadinejad declared that Israel was destined to ‘disappearance and destruction’ at a council meeting with Iranian ministers.

“The western powers created the Zionist regime in order to expand their control of the area. This regime massacres Palestinians everyday, but since this regime is against nature, we will soon witness its disappearance and destruction,” Ahmadinejad said. (AFP)

Exodus And Refugees


Often in the leadup to wars, people will flee their homeland to go to America or some other friendly capitalist nation with a stable culture. I must say, it is strange to find that Dutch and German people are now fleeing their respective countries:


In the first nine months of this year, almost 100,000 people left the Netherlands to settle elsewhere, 12,000 more than the same period last year. […] The net effect means the Dutch population was reduced in the 2004-06 period by 75,000. In the preceding three years, there was a positive net migration of 75,000. Despite the dramatic reversal, the number of immigrants is also on the increase.

and

A quote from the German weekly Der Spiegel, 10 November 2006
Faced with poor job prospects, high taxes and an intrusive bureaucracy, more and more Germans are choosing to emigrate. Most of those who leave, though, are highly qualified – which could mean devastating economic consequences. [...] They are fed up with living in a country where all opportunities already seem to be taken: opportunities to succeed in one’s career, to own property and to achieve prosperity.


Of course, these people will not be called political refugees, even though that is what they are.

Now, I have really amazing news for you. In merry ole' England, it seems, perhaps, many young Muslims are starting to realize it might also be time for them to leave. Here are some typical quotes from an Islamic internet forum:


I've been having a lot of debates and arguments with non Muslim colleagues and acqaintances about what Islam says, doesn't say, stands for, human rights abuses etc etc for months and months now..actually for the alast few years. And I have finally finally reached the end of my tether.The hostility that I've found many non Muslims have these days towards Islam and Muslims is suffocating. I'm so sick of it that I am starting to consciously withdraw away from non Muslims.(Imaan - activist)

Yep, well if it continues, it is going to get worse. As people like George Galloway, Ken Livingstone and others begin to retire (like tony ben), we will see few checks and balances. You need to ask yourself, how are you preparing for once the non muslim supporters of muslims begin to get smaller and eventually disappear.Quite a lot of people are thinking of exit strategy. In 10 years time from now.... will you still be living in this country? Will there be laws preventing you from repatriating your wealth? If the average muslim family is 4 people, the wealth per family 250k. thats minimum 400,000 households. If we all got up and left.... thats a lot of money gone from the country. in GBP terms 100,000,000,000 or 100 Billion. Maybe some will stay. I reckon half will leave so 50 Billion leaves the UK. That is a lot for a country to lose out. Forget the cost due to having to replace certain areas of the economy.I am already thinking of buying some prime land in Gawadar. If I were to sell up now, I could have a nice house and never have to work again [This bloke hasn't considered how much that wealth would be reduced by 400K houses on the market all at the same time, or even at a steadily increasing drip. the first few would go home wealthy - after that?](Ammaad - veteran campaigner)

Maybe our parents' generation were on the right track after all, working hard to make sure they had lands and house back "home" just in case this country kicked us out. We used to laugh at them but day by day it's starting to hit home that they do know what they're talking about after all!(Salaam)


You wanna bet that when these jokers leave, they will be considered political refugees.
