One Law For All…Islamophobic

December 7, 2008

‘One Law for All’ – another Islamophobic WPI fraud

The One Law for All campaign – supported by the National Secular Society – is to be launched in the House of Lords on International Human Rights Day, 10 December.

According to campaign organiser, Maryam Namazie, “Even in civil matters, Sharia law is discriminatory, unfair and unjust, particularly against women and children. Moreover, its voluntary nature is a sham; many women will be pressured into going to these courts and abiding by their decisions. These courts are a quick and cheap route to injustice and do nothing to promote minority rights and social cohesion. Public interest, particularly with regard to women and children, requires an end to Sharia and all other faith-based courts and tribunals.”

The campaign has already received widespread support.

National Secular Society news report, 5 December 2008

Sure it’s receved wide support. The campaign is backed by a total of ten organisations, five of which – Children First Now, the laughably misnamed Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain, Equal Rights Now – Organisation against Women’s Discrimination in Iran, the International Committee against Stoning and the Iranian Secular Society – are all front organisations for the Islamophobic far-left sect, the Worker-Communist Party of Iran. You do sometimes wonder whether the WPI has more front organisations than members.

Children First Now…DON’T WORRY ABOUT CHILDREN IS MUSLIM COUNTRIES YOU ISLAMOPHOBIC RACISTS!!!

 Organisation against Women’s Discrimination in Iran…LET WOMEN IS IRAN BE DISCRIMINATED AGAINST YOU ISLAMOPHOBC RACISTS!!!

International Committee against Stoning…LET MUSLIM COUNTRIES STONE WOMEN YOU ISLAMOPHOBIC RACISTS!!!

It seems any organisation which is concerned with the human rights of women and children in Muslim countries is “Islamophobic” in the eyes of Islamophobia Watch.

Remember these are ex Muslims who don’t like Shariah Law. Lol…STOP CRITICISING YOUR OWN RELIGION YOU ISLAMOPHOBIC RACISTS!!!

Far left sect. We wonder what the people behind Islamophobia Watch are then? Right-wing?

The Worker Communist Party Of Iran are a group of communists who don’t want their country to be ruled by religious law. Sounds fair enough. But according to the Islamophobiawatchers they should just shut up and put up with it because that’s their “culture”.

Doh!

Islamophobia Watch have never bothered to discuss the pros and cons of Shariah Law or Shariah courst. All they’ve done is smeared anyone who disagress with it as “Islamophobic”.

Lazy!

 

 

Salma Yaqoob supporting Jihadists?

December 2, 2008

It’s debatable. Though knowone’s actually asked Ms Yaqoob what she actually thinks about terrorists.

‘Salma Yaqoob, jihadist’ – latest stage in Toube’s descent into insanity

Over at Harry’s Place, in an article entitled “Salma Yaqoob picks today to support jihadists“, the inimitable David Toube denounces Respect’s Birmingham councillor as a terrorist sympathiser.

Salma’s crime is that, like millions of Muslims and non-Muslims across the world, she recognises “the rights of those in Palestine, Afghanistan and Iraq to resist the occupation of their countries”. According to Toube: “In each of those three countries – Palestine, Afghanistan and Iraq – the only groups that are presently engaged in terrorist activities – groups like Hamas and Islamic Jihad, the Taliban, and Al Qaeda and the Mahdi Army – are jihadist groups.”

Let us leave aside the fact that the article Toube attacks, which appeared in the 27 November issue of the Muslim News, was reprinted from the September issue of the Respect newspaper, so if Salma “picked a day” to publish the article, it was presumably around two months ago. Instead let us address Toube’s bizarre assertion that the resistance to the occupation of Palestine, Afghanistan and Iraq consists of “jihadist groups”.

For once, among all the usual vile Islamophobic rants by the racists and nutters who infest Harry’s Place, a few sensible posts appear in the comments section following Toube’s piece, and they demolish his nonsense quite effectively. For example:

“It’s ridiculous to claim that all the people fighting in Iraq, Palestine and Afghanistan are jihadists. Such an idea would laughed out of court by any serious regional analyst. In Palestine half the groups opposing the occupation are secular. In Iraq there are a shifting patchwork of very differently groups fighting the Americans only some of which are ‘jihadist’ in thinking. Similarly a great deal of the fighters who are labelled ‘Taliban’ in Afghanistan are Pashtun men who have been very disillusioned by what has been happening in the country and have decided to take up arms against the Americans.”

“So the Mahdi army are now ‘jihadists’? That’s a new one. In fact it is a willfully ignorant way to characterise what is going on in Iraq – equivalent to putting your fingers in your ears and saying ‘la la la, can’t hear anything, la la la, it’s all just evil Jihadis’.”

To which it might be added that Hamas has of course been bitterly condemned by the real jihadists for participating in the electoral process.

But what else can you expect from Toube? This the idiot who has denounced Osama Saeed as a fascist and Inayat Bunglawala as a supporter of Al-Muhajiroun. Surely it’s only a matter of time before Toube announces that Tariq Ramadan is an agent of Al-Qaeda. It is a measure of the irrationality generated by the current media campaign against Islam and Islamism that an ignorant bigot like Toube is actually taken seriously in some circles.

 

“Salma’s crime is that, like millions of Muslims and non-Muslims across the world, she recognises “the rights of those in Palestine, Afghanistan and Iraq to resist the occupation of their countries”. ”

Does that include blowing up and shooting innocent people in other countries? Does Salma, Muslims and non-Muslims believe those rights to be an abosloute?

Hmm.
