Islamophobia group relaunched
theJC.com ^ | 11-24-11 | Martin Bright,

Posted on 11/26/2011 9:10:41 AM PST by bayouranger

A parliamentary group to tackle Islamophobia has been re-launched at Westminster, with the support of MPs from across the political divide. The group originally sparked controversy after it was revealed that an anti-Zionist organisation was to act as its secretariat.

The newly reformed All-Party Parliamentary Group on Islamophobia was set up last week and will begin work immediately on an inquiry into the extent of anti-Muslim prejudice in Britain today.

The APPG will be co-chaired by Liberal Democrat deputy leader Simon Hughes; Khalid Mahmood, Labour MP for Perry Barr, Birmingham; and Stuart Andrew, Conservative MP for Pudsey, Leeds.

MPs voted by 60-2 in July to drop the organisation iEngage from providing administrative support to the group. The Community Security Trust has described the group as having a "troubling attitude to antisemitism".

The vote followed the resignations of founder co-chairs Lord Janner and Conservative MP Kris Hopkins in February.

A report into the APPG by Chris Allen, an expert in Islamophobia from Birmingham University, was highly critical. He wrote: "Since its launch in November 2010, the APPG on Islamophobia has been little more than a sideshow: an unhelpful, unwanted and unnecessary distraction from giving Islamophobia the rightful, timely and necessary attention it so desperately needs.

"There can be no doubt whatsoever that the credibility of the APPG has been damaged."

It is hoped that the new group will be able to draw a line under the i-Engage controversy and make a fresh start.

Mr Mahmood, who has always taken a strong line against Islamic radicals, said: "The reforming of the Islamophobia group is a vital step forward in combating this insidious and increasing form of prejudice.

"I look forward to working with colleagues from across the political spectrum, in developing a dialogue that addresses both the causes and potential solutions of Islamophobia in all its forms."

Former Home Secretary Jack Straw urged MPs, at a meeting of the parliamentary Labour Party last week, to back the new group, though he blamed the collapse of the original APPG on a "campaign" by the JC.

The JC first broke the story about the problems with the APPG in February, after the resignation of Lord Janner and Kris Hopkins and has regularly returned to the subject. Mr Straw was unavailable for comment.

Editor Stephen Pollard - who said he was proud of the role the JC had played in the removal of the iEngage secretariat - added: "The JC has always supported the principle of setting up an APPG on Islamophobia and will follow the work of the reformed group with interest."

I give England to about 2030-40 to be so over populated by the muzzies that they will simply be voted out of all offices and all muzzie law will be the rule of the day. Nice job GIVING away your country bit by bit liberals. Oh, wait, we are doing it here also. Might take them to 2050, but with stupidity the rule of the day here in the former great USA, we can accomplish what the Brits are currently doing. Committing national suicide.

If the muzzies would behave themselves none of this would be necessary.

Liberals spending tax dollars trying to convince people that what is so, isn’t so. They deserve no respect.

We’re doing the same thing with “free trade”.

Exactly the same.

So when the muzzies say that they’re going to kill the infidel, this group is there to tell the Brits “they don’t really mean it”?

If group really is out to do you unmeasurable harm the it’s not a phobia to fear them. Read a Koran.

The muzzies know that if you put a frog in hot water, he will jump right out, but if you put a frog in cold water and then heat it up gradually, the frog will happily say there and cook, it apears that the brits don’t, and my guess, that apply to most people here to

How about a “study group” to explore and combat Muslim hatred for all things (except The Dole) British?

“phobia” phobia!

The fear of being labeled is supposed to discourage supporters of conservative norms from defending their beliefs.

If you support national sovereignty and Judeo-Christian values, you must be doing so out of “fear” rather than conviction to a firm set of values.

Letting Islam trample our culture and religious freedoms, such that ours are banned from public view, while they blast the “call to prayer” across our cities 5 times a day, is destructive nonsense that must NOT prevail!

I wonder if these liberals will “examine the root causes” of “islamophobia” the way they used to tell us we had to “examine the root causes” of poverty among certain groups.

Yeah, I forgot how the muzzies play up their “Mahdi” as coming back WITH Christ to bring justice and peace to the Earth.
And there are those who profess to be Christians who swallow that crap.
*sigh*

That is the sad part, go along to get along. Many of the elite will be swayed, it is happening now it seems. Afraid to take a stand. All we can do is try to educate, but alas.

It’s the “If we’re nice to them, they won’t hurt us” lie/delusion writ large.
And the muzzies will leave them alone until it is deemed time to kill them.
And that is up to the whim of whichever pseudo-tribal lord is running that particular section of ground.
Unfortunately, many of our military leaders believe it too.

The "if we're nice to them" crowd of nitwits are to be called "Useful Idiots".

It is frightening to imagine their fate when they find out the truth. Wonder if some will say "Why didn't someone tell us, why didn't the Government protect us?"

I just can't seem to crasp the "WHY" of their thinking.

Well, they believe they are ‘enlightened’ and so much smarter than the ‘haters’ who try to warn them.
And when they finally find out the truth, they cannot grasp the weight and gravity of it.
They honestly think that what happens to them next is somebody else’s fault rather than a consequence of their beliefs.

Jihad per TV ‘realism series’- ‘All American Muslims’
TLC Sunday, 9 PM CST

‘It is an attempt to manipulate Americans into ignoring the threat of jihad and to bully them into thinking that being concerned about the jihad threat would somehow victimize these nice people in this show.

The problem people have with Islam is its teachings of violence against and the subjugation of unbelievers. It is with the supremacist ideology and the fervent believers in those noxious doctrines of warfare and subjugation. Yhe ultimate danger posed by a program presenting the “normal” side of life for American Muslims is that it isn’t accurate.

The danger is in the deception and obfuscation of the truth which results in the intellectual disarming of the American people.’

Well, I believe we are seeing most of them in the Occupier group right now, and they are spawning.

Don't know what to make of all this in relation to Scripture, for the day and the hour no man knows, but something is going on, and it is on the fast track it seems.

And colleges are helping to churn them out as if on an assembly line.

Prayer is all we have, to give us strength, look up our redemption is nigh.

Just a side note, I have heard my Christian young grandsons say they do not want to have children, they don't want to bring them into this world. That is sad, and I do understand, bet they will change their minds though. They have been raised right, and will also refuse to join the crowd. They are so conservative and christian, they love nothing more than to "buck"/challenge the teachers. lol Chip off the old block as they say.

I’ve said the same thing as your grandsons on a few occaisions.

Sad part is that there are those in power who want to keep people purposefully ignorant of the truth because they gain more power over people if the people are uninformed of the truth.
Whatever the truth of the circumstances are, whether it is about God or current events.

When I watched the Damien movies, I couldn't figure out where all these evil people would come from; now I know. Islam, and Liberalism.
