So much for respect: Two Muslim councillors refused to clap war hero

It would be difficult to think of a better example of why multiculturalism is an oxymoron. No wait a minute…

When a young Afghanistan war hero appeared before a city council, it seemed the right thing to give him a standing ovation.

Lance Corporal Matthew Croucher, 26, had been awarded the George Cross for throwing himself on a Taliban hand grenade to save his comrades.

He survived only because his backpack took the force of the blast.

But to the horror of the rest of the council chamber, while most leapt to their feet to applaud him, two Muslim councillors remained firmly in their seats.

Salma Yaqoob and Mohammed Ishtiaq, from the Respect party, insist that their refusal to clap the Royal Marine was a point of principle.

But following the meeting at Birmingham City Council on Tuesday night, fellow councillors said they had grossly disrespected the soldier.

Conservative Cllr John Lines said: ‘They should be ashamed of themselves.

‘This was not the time or place to stage an anti-war protest – this man risked his life for his comrades.

‘I was happy to give this hero a standing ovation and I have invited him to be guest of honour when we open new houses for ex-military personnel later this year.’

Peter Douglas Osborn, another Conservative councillor, added: ‘As far as I am concerned it is no longer the Respect party, but the disrespect party.’

  1. Deport them immediately with a boat…w no oars….and 3 holes bow stern & port…and pack their ration box with all the pork cracklins they could ask for!!! MMM! Love them cracklins!!!

  2. And that’s how mass immigration suddenly turns into mass infiltration.

    You’ve let people into your system, that do not actually care for your country, they are merely exploiting its economic success, while their heart beats for another country.

    This isn’t just a legitimate political protest against war, this is literally foreign people sympathizing with the enemy.

    How can the liberal sheep not recognize how suicidal that approach is in the long term?

    Whom do they expect people in the military fighting and dying for if their cities are full of Muslims publicly disrespecting them?

    How do they expect the military to even exist in the future, if half of the population consists of foreigners sympathizing with the enemy?

  3. These people are just as unpatriotic as your average Leftist, Downturn. They hate the UK and European Christendom and Western Civillization just as much as these foreign Muslim imports do.

  4. Hopefully these two are in the next mosque to be hit by a stray lightning bolt! Utter parasitic muslim viral scum! The EDL is gaining strength and I hope to see an England free of this muslim scum!

  5. I can see their point, we in the west are the new nazis to them, and many others, why should they applaud a soldier who has killed their muslim comrades, but it would have been more sensible of them not to be in there in the first place.

  6. James, no one is killing their Muslim comrades, their comrades are the people in their council area they are payed to look after. If they have more respect for the enemy they should be there, on the other side.

  7. hey Eeyore,

    just so you know, lately, a lot of images seem to get corrupted in uploading the post to your site, such as that of those two councillors… I’m pretty confident it’s not a bug at my end; I’m on FF and right-clicking on ‘view image’ will result in same quarter image…

  8. They are disgusting for their behaviour… if they can’t respect others they should not be on the council! If they don’t support the actions of a young soldiers brave actions they shouldn’t be in this country!!
    Oh, and james…… you’re an idiot!!! Think before you type!

  9. Both of these turds are very well known infil-traitors. They need to be decommissioned, stripped of UK passports and shipped straight back to Pokistan.

    Just wait, it will happen!
