Two Muslim councillors were under fire today after they refused to take part in a standing ovation to honour a Marine who won the George Cross.

Salma Yaqoob and Mohammed Ishtiaq remained seated during a ceremony for Lance Corporal Matthew Croucher.

The 26-year-old was awarded the George Cross after he flung himself onto a Taliban hand grenade to save his comrades during an ambush in Helmand Province in 2008.

He was serving with 40 Commando when his patrol came under fire but he miraculously survived because his backpack took the force of the blast.

L/Cpl Croucher became the most highly-decorated serving Marine when he received the George Cross for ‘outstanding bravery not involving direct contact with the enemy’.

More than 100 councillors at Birmingham City Council attended a meeting on Tuesday night to honour L/Cpl Croucher, who was there as guest of honour.

  1. The two “peers” showed their true colors when they refused to honor this hero, they are more Moslem then British and should have their titles removed and be deported.

  2. He is right to be proud of his medal.

    The people of the UK should be ashamed that they have let such filth as Muslims into the country. They will not assimilate, nor will they let up until every vestige of England is wiped out.

    Time for the action to take place, and fast. With the hundreds of thousands of passports issued last year to (mainly) Muslim immigrants, its only a matter of time before the UK fully becomes Britainistan and under sharia law.

    Time for a cleansing…
