MCB supports the bombing of Royal Navy ships


 The main stream media apparently did not want to offend Muslims by reporting on this story. Like the dog that bites the hand that feeds it, the Muslim Council of Britain once again let others know that they are always Muslims first and Britons second. The British government will [ as it has in the past ] apply bandages and offer another treat.

Hamas, The MCB, And The Royal Navy

From Sky News blog section Tim Marshall March 27, 2009 5:21 PM

Interesting little row bubbling away under the radar here in London…
‘The obligation of the Islamic Nation to regard the sending of foreign warships into Muslim waters,
claiming to control the borders and prevent the smuggling of arms to Gaza, as a declaration of war,
a new occupation, sinful aggression, and a clear violation of the sovereignty of the Nation.
This must be rejected and fought by all means and ways’

The Government has frozen relations with the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) after its deputy leader
Daud Abdullah signed a declaration which some people have taken to support the bombing of Royal Navy ships if they tried to prevent Hamas being re-armed from the sea. Continue Reading →

CNN Avoids Mentioning Islam in Segment on ‘Honor Killings’

No surprise here. But the only victims of this politically correct silence will be women who are victimized by honor killings while no one calls Muslim communities to account to do anything about this problem.

A manual of Islamic law certified by Al-Azhar as a reliable guide to Sunni orthodoxy says that “retaliation is obligatory against anyone who kills a human being purely intentionally and without right.” However, “not subject to retaliation” is “a father or mother (or their fathers or mothers) for killing their offspring, or offspring’s offspring.” (‘Umdat al-Salik o1.1-2).

In other words, someone who kills his child incurs no legal penalty under Islamic law.

Why does this stipulation appear in a manual of Islamic law if this has nothing to do with Islam?

“CNN Avoids Mentioning Islam in Segment on ‘Honor Killings,'” by Mark Finkelstein for NewsBusters, August 11 (thanks to all who sent this in):

Quite a feat: CNN has pulled off the MSM equivalent of describing a spiral staircase without using one’s hands. It has managed to produce a segment on “honor killings” and related violence in the UK . . . without using the word “Muslim” or “Islam.” CNN Newsroom anchor Don Lemon introduced the segment this afternoon at 1:37 PM EDT.

DON LEMON: Women forced into marriages, or killed for having the wrong boyfriend. So-called “honor crimes” are often committed by fathers or brothers when daughters do something that supposedly brings shame on the family. It’s on the rise in Britain, and authorities, they are very worried about it. Our Paula Newton reports.

View video here.

Honor crimes are “often committed” by father and brothers? And the crimes are “on the rise” in Britain? Now why would that be? Newton did little to elucidate. She told the story of Banaz Mahmod: kidnapped, tortured, raped and murdered at the order of her father, Mahmod Mahmod, for “bringing shame” on her family. Newton never mentioned that Mahmod was a Muslim, an Iraqi Kurd. According to Diana Nammi with the London-based Iranian and Kurdish Women’s Rights Organization, “we’re seeing an increase around the world, due in part to the rise in Islamic fundamentalism.”

Instead of identifying the root of the problem, Newton said only that British authorities have instituted public awareness campaigns in “the few communities” where they’ve seen problems. She cited a figure of 17,000 honor crimes or forced marriages as possibly being only the tip of the iceberg in the UK. A British police official is then seen decrying the fact that “the perceived honor of the family is seen as more important than the life of a child.” In which families? The policeman never said and CNN never explained….

Journalists Biased Towards Islamo-Fascists

Society of Professional Journalists Advocates Whitewashing Islam

Wed, Mar 5, 2008 at 6:30:45 pm PST

If you’ve wondered why so many mainstream media stories about Islamic issues omit important details and draw spurious morally equivalent conclusions, wonder no more. They’re doing it on purpose.

This was apparently released by the Society of Professional Journalists shortly after the 9/11 attacks: Guidelines for Countering Racial, Ethnic and Religious Profiling (Thanks to LGF)
