Muslim Council of Britain
Shuts Down
Holocaust Memorial

The Muslim Council of Britian is, of course, a "moderate" Muslim organization - or so the British media tells us - but, that doesn't stop them from shutting down a Holocaust Memorial, and telling amazing lies about the state of Israel:

IN A move widely seen to be bowing to Muslim pressure, Bolton Council has scrapped its Holocaust Memorial Day event.

The council is to replace it with a Genocide Memorial Day in June. This is in line with the policy of the Muslim Council of Britain, which continues to boycott HMD and is asking for a Genocide Day, which will also mark “the ongoing genocide and human rights abuses of Palestinians” by Israelis.

Just for the record, in case anyone is not yet clear on this, there is no genocide going on against the Palestinian people. A genocide is an organized effort by one group of people to kill everyone in another group of people. Palestinians are not being killed en masse. If the Israelis wanted to do that, they could simply bomb the hell out of the Palestinian territories. Clearly, they have superior firepower.

The truth of the matter is that the population in the Palestinian territories continues to rise, so if the Israelis are attempting a genocide of the Palestinian people, they are proving to be a miserable failure at such an endeavor.
