Attacks on Muslims spike after Woolwich killing (Tell Mama hotline for Islamophobic crimes)
The Guardian ^ | May 23, 2013 | Haroon Siddique and Sam Jones

Posted on 05/25/2013 6:28:49 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Fears of a prolonged backlash against Muslims have intensified after dozens of Islamophobic incidents were reported in the wake of the murder of the British soldier Lee Rigby in south London.

The Tell Mama hotline for recording Islamophobic crimes and incidents recorded 38 incidents over Wednesday night, including attacks on three mosques, with more reported on Thursday.

The Metropolitan police put 1,200 more officers on the street on Thursday, with extra patrols deployed to mosques and religious sites as far-right groups reacted to the tragedy.

The Tell Mama co-ordinator Fiyaz Mughal, from Faith Matters, said the service usually recorded three or four incidents on an average day, but the spike after Wednesday's killing reflected simmering resentment against Muslims and was unlikely to fizzle out.

"What we are seeing is concerted action from individuals across the country," he said. "We are really concerned. When you see a wider picture of resentment and retribution, this is telling us it's an increasing problem. Something is moving in a very disturbing direction."(continued)

The LORD rebuke the Manchester Guardian to the effect that it falls. Out of the plethora of propagandist papers, this one has been grossly offensive.

That something wouldn’t be ..........ISLAM would it????

It’s interesting that the “extremeists” never butcher
these “interfaith” groups but of course they know who
is on their side.

If your government is not keeping out the trash, then it falls to citizens to take up the slack I suppose.

.
Would like to know in detail what happened in these “dozens” of hateful acts.

Dozens looked cross-eyed at a muzzie?

I remember when after 9/11 a Sihk was murdered because he was wearing a turban, although they are not Muslim at all.

Some sent nasty Tweets that disparaged the Religion of Peace. They were of course arrested.

Others though about doing so. They haven’t been arrested. Yet.

There a Brit named Pat Condell on youtube who posts amazing critiques of the Religion of Pieces from time to time.He did one about The Guardian and its connection to the RoP.As a Brit he's probably quite well qualified to inform the world about that rag.

Here's the link (too lazy to look up how to construct a real link)

PHOBIA? Irrational fear? After a PROUD Islamic supremacist decapitates a man in full view and BOASTS of his action while awaiting to be taken into custody?

So back to grazing, sheeple. The muslim superiors expect it.

Islamophobic?

I think not. It is inexpressible disgust for Islam and its followers.

Eye for an eye? Be careful what you wish for, Muzzies.

BTW the Hammer was technically Frankish but he embodied the Germanic propensity to utter ruthlessness when called for to oppose islam at Tours.

I have no idea what these incidents actually are, but it would seem the OPPOSITE is taking place: segments of the British have reached a tipping point and are NO LONGER
“Islamophobic”.

>> Fears of a prolonged backlash against Muslims

Muslims regularly and indiscriminately killed Western and Eastern citizens, and on occasion someone gets fed up and responds; ergo, the “prolonged backlash”.

Skank journalism.

>> KICK THE BARBARIANS OUT!

Some irony in that statement.

Prior to the era where time came to a standstill, somewhere around 610 AD, the barbarians were in reality settled in Western Europe, not Persia. And also prior to the unequaled gear jam of that infamous 7th century, the Persians in many centuries prior were responsible for salvaging the great works of Alexandria — works ultimately to be recast as ... here we go... the ‘Great Works’ of sand dwellers. By the way, it was the Christians that dealt old Rome that harrowing blow. A lot of good stuff was lost, but such is the cost for a well deserved and “prolonged backlash”. The Christians later kicked the crap out of the conical Barbarians and civilized Western Europe diligently recording and brewing for the next thousand years. And here’s where the fun of contemporary mathematics and physics began. In the backyard of Barbarians!

If the British government did their job, protected their citizens by protecting their borders and profile to find Muslims with terrorist ties then these “Islamaphobic” attacks wouldn’t occur or be necessary.

Let's see. You tell people you are going to kill them. You kill them. Then you are surprised when people take you seriously.

First of all, we need to find out what "attacks on Muslims" means. People have been arrested in England for nasty comments on Twitter and that counted as an "attack". Don't trust the Guardian and don't trust the British Government to be honest.
