Muslims can't commit hate crimes in Britain
An Asian family who converted to Christianity claim they are being driven out of their home for the second time by Muslim persecutors.
Nissar Hussain, his wife Kubra and their six children said they have suffered an appalling ordeal at the hands of neighbours who regard them as blasphemers.
They claim they are effectively prisoners in their own home after being attacked in the street, having their car windscreens repeatedly smashed and eggs thrown at their windows.
Mr Hussain, 49, has even given up his career as a nurse due to the effect on his health.
Police have been called numerous times to deal with the trouble but are said to be reluctant to treat the problem as a religious hate crime.
Only one successful prosecution has been made, and Mr Hussain said he feels so let down by police he has lodged a complaint with the Independent Police Complaints Commission.
He also criticised the Anglican Church for failing to provide any meaningful support.
Now the family are likely to move from their home city of Bradford to a 'white English' area to escape the hate campaign.
Mr Hussain said his wife, 45, and children Issar, 23, Anniesa, 21, Sarah, 19, Miriam, 17, Leena and Isaaq, seven, have faced harassment and abuse on almost a daily basis.
Flashpoints include an incident in March this year when Mr Hussain ended up grappling with a man who 'threatened and confronted' his wife.
Police were called and Mr Hussain was arrested and spent 12 hours in police cells before being released without charge.
Over the last year, Mr Hussain has had his car windscreen smashed six times at a cost of £5,000. His eldest son, a final year medical student, has also had his windscreen smashed.
Although their faith remains strong, Mr and Mrs Hussain no longer attend church. 'We have given up on the Church of England, they have done nothing for us,' said Mr Hussain.
A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said: 'We are aware of an ongoing matter involving Mr Hussain and are working closely with partners to resolve this situation. All reports of crime are taken seriously and are investigated thoroughly.'
But Muslims CAN commit hate crimes in Australia
The Australian authorities call a spade a spade -- unlike the hypocritical English
Police have released a photo of the 'admired' and 'gentle' father of two who was gunned down by a 15-year-old 'radicalised' youth Friday evening.
Curtis Cheng, 58, was leaving work at the police headquarters in Parramatta, Sydney, when he was shot in the back of the head by the Iranian-born youth.
The gunman responsible has been identified as Farad Jabar Khalil Mohammad, the ABC reported.
He had visited a mosque in the hours before the killing, which has been confirmed by the Prime Minister as an act of terrorism.
Police had searched the teen's North Parramatta family home and taken computer equipment, the ABC reported.
He was a student at Arthur Phillip High, a school less than half a kilometre from where the shootings took place, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.
A source told the ABC the teen's weapon was a revolver and it did not seem he knew his victim.
Witnesses of the attack on Friday afternoon said after the killing, the teen paraded in front of the police station with his weapon chanting 'Allah, Allah', it was reported.
After exchanging gunfire with police officers, the teen was killed.
Mr Cheng, a father of two and accountant for the police, was remembered as a 'wonderful' man, loved by family, friends and colleagues.
In a press conference with New South Wales premiere Mike Baird, Police commissioner Andrew Scipione said the police force was in mourning.
NSW premier Mike Baird said it was an 'unthinkable act' that ended his life. 'I want the family of Curtis and the members of his Police community to know that you don't face this loss alone. We mourn with you and we are here for you.'
The police commissioner confirmed the teen's actions were 'politically motivated and therefore linked to terrorism'.
En route to the killing the youth, originally from Iran, had visited Parramatta Mosque, The Daily Telegraph reported.
The killer, who had an Iraqi and Kurdish background, carried no identification and it was believed his brother contacted police with his identity, the Daily Telegraph reported.
The gunman, at present believed to have been acting alone, shot Mr Cheng at close range outside the Parramatta police headquarters in a targeted attack on Friday, which has been described as a 'brutal' and 'callous murder'.
The assailant, dressed all in black, fired a number of shots at special constables guarding the NSW Police station in Sydney, before he was gunned down and killed by one of the officers.
Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione said Mr Cheng was 'simply leaving work' when he was shot in the back of the head by the gunman who was wearing 'dark trousers and a flowing top'.
'A number of special constables came out of the building and as they've emerged they've come under fire.
'In the exchange that followed the gunman was shot and killed. An employee of the NSW police force has been callously murdered here today. This is a very sobering time for us.'
Police believe the gunman was not working with anyone else, but have not ruled out the possibility there may be others involved.
Truth about the rabble bringing fear to British streets: Working class warriors? No, middle class spongers and so-called academics
Age has not mellowed university graduate Ian Bone. He may now be a 68-year-old grandfather, but he is full of burning resentment. Almost all his life has been devoted to waging war on the rich while claiming benefits funded by their taxes.
His father was butler to Sir Gerald Coke, grandson of the Earl of Leicester, and the family lived in a bonded cottage on a family estate in Hampshire. Young Ian hated the rich children ‘from the big house’ for calling his father ‘Bone’ and grew up with an abiding contempt for the upper classes.
After finishing a degree in politics from Swansea University, he announced to his horrified parents that his choice of ‘career’ was to be an anarchist, and that he would fund it by claiming the dole.
‘I thought I might as well be unemployed so that I could be a full-time radical revolutionary and the State would pay me to do it,’ he explained later. ‘I never thought about having a job or a career. Jobs and material possessions have never loomed large in my life.’
He lived in Bristol, playing in a band, drinking heavily and staying in rented flats. He also became a founding member of Class War, a group dedicated to the violent overthrow of state structures, and published newspapers in support of the cause.
He moved to London in the 1990s, still claiming benefits, and now lives there in a £330,000 home with the mortgage paid off, which belongs to his partner Jane Nicholl, 64.
She, too, is an anarchist and was arrested last year for setting fire to an effigy of Boris Johnson on Guy Fawkes night. The charge was subsequently dropped.
Ian’s anger about his childhood has not been eased by his immense good fortune and charmed life on benefits. Far from it, judging by the pictures and messages he has posted on social media.
When Baroness Thatcher died in 2013, he used his blog to summon an army of followers to celebratory street parties, and published an image of the former prime minister’s head being cut open with a meat cleaver. Next to the image he wrote: ‘The best cut of all.’
In other film clips posted on YouTube, he rails against the Royal Family and urges ‘violent action’ to achieve his aims.
More recently, Bone — who has five children with two former partners — posted pictures of himself angrily brandishing a walking stick during a protest against the so-called gentrification of London.
Last week, he was the key figure behind a vicious mob attack when riot police and helicopters were deployed after more than a thousand people descended on a fashionable part of East London to protest against a trendy cafe selling breakfast cereals from around the world for up to £4.40 a bowl.
The protest was organised by Bone’s Class War group, which urged followers of its Facebook page to join in.
‘Our communities are being ripped apart — by Russian oligarchs, Saudi sheiks, Israeli scumbag property developers, Texan oil-money twats and our own home-grown Eton toffs,’ went Class War’s cry.
‘We don’t want luxury flats that no one can afford, we want genuinely affordable housing. We don’t want pop-up gin bars or brioche buns, we want community.’
The community in the part of East London that Class War targeted on Saturday night was nothing short of terrified as the mob descended.
And what was striking is that it wasn’t just unemployed ne’er-do-wells such as Bone who responded to the call, but a motley crew which included well-dressed youngsters with iPhones as well as university academics — of whom more later.
With police helicopters buzzing overhead and dozens of riot officers deployed on the ground, the mob headed for an establishment called the Cereal Killer Cafe, which is run by 33-year-old twins from Belfast.
While cafe staff locked the doors and barricaded themselves inside, hundreds — many of them masked and carrying burning torches — gathered outside, threw paint at the premises and daubed the word ‘scum’ on the window.
As families with young children cowered, the protesters managed to break in and threw a smoke bomb.
Riot police rushed to the scene while the protesters chanted obscenities, burnt an effigy of a policeman and smashed the windows of a nearby estate agent.
‘They are violent bullies and we want them prosecuted,’ says Alan Keery, 33, who founded the cafe with Gerry, his brother, last year. ‘We’re a small business. We work hard. They see us as an easy target. They see us as the face of gentrification.’
The brothers describe themselves as ‘very working-class’ boys from Belfast, who left school at 16 and worked for years in shops, pubs and clubs before opening their own venture.
Jasiminne Yip, the owner of Regimental Vintage, a nearby boutique, was caught up in the violence, which began as she was closing for the night.
‘At first I thought it was a pub crawl,’ she told us. ‘I heard some of the group, most of them in their twenties, speaking very loudly in very posh accents and shouting general profanities in every direction.
‘I barricaded myself in my shop because the situation looked dangerous. I saw a small dog running past the group and some of them were attacking it — kicking at it. One person was trying to hit it with their skateboard.’
The attack on the cafe was just one of a series of violent incidents across London this year. Bottles and missiles were hurled at police, estate agents’ windows were smashed and flames leapt into the night sky during recent disturbances against luxury developments in Camden, North London.
Similar scenes took place in April in Brixton, South London, with violent protests against the ‘gentrification’ of the area. Tear gas had to be used as protesters stormed Brixton Town Hall.
That same month, the annual Property Awards at the Grosvenor House Hotel in central London were disrupted by 200 demonstrators claiming to be angered by a lack of social housing, while branches of Foxtons estate agents have had their windows smashed because they are considered to represent the evil of gentrification.
Bone and his cronies are planning more anarchy tomorrow outside the Jack the Ripper Museum, a new tourist attraction on Cable Street, in the East End of London.
Class War has denounced the museum as being the work of ‘a rich businessman who glorifies the brutal murder of working-class sex workers. It is also a symbol of gentrification’.
But in fact this has nothing to do with ‘class war’. Besides Ian Bone, the other main agitators are also drawn from the ranks of the middle classes and the university-educated.
Perhaps the most preposterous of them is Dr Lisa Mckenzie, 47, a research fellow at the prestigious London School of Economics, where such academic posts attract salaries of about £40,000.
Denying that she is middle-class, she ludicrously compares the cereal protest to the struggles of the Suffragettes and Nelson Mandela.
This from a woman who lives in a £1,300-a-month flat in the achingly trendy Limehouse area of London and posts details on her Facebook page of holidays to far-flung destinations such as Barbados, Las Vegas and Jamaica as well as New York, Milan, Rome, Paris and Barcelona.
A mother of one with her hair dyed bright red, she studied sociology at Nottingham University and went on to gain funding for a Masters degree and a PhD.
She claims — without a hint of irony — that taking part in the riots is all part of her job. ‘I’m always on protests because I write about them,’ she says. ‘I’m there but this is research, too.’
Her research work for the LSE concerns ‘the precarious nature of particular groups in our society and the vulnerability they experience’. She is also looking into ‘social cleansing’ in East London.
The daughter and granddaughter of miners, she honed her hatred during the miners’ strike of 1984-85 in which Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher crushed Arthur Scargill, leader of the National Union of Minerworkers.
‘Our community was absolutely decimated by the Conservative government,’ she told the BBC this week. ‘I am now an economic migrant to the South East. Social cleansing is happening in London.’
In her 2009 academic thesis, called Finding Value On A Council Estate, she complained that cases such as that of Baby P — the appalling torture and killing of a 17-month-old boy by his mother and boyfriend — were ‘used by the media and politicians to make way for a barrage of accusations, suspicions and stigmatisations regarding those who live on council estates, especially mothers’.
She stood as a Class War candidate in the General Election in May this year in Iain Duncan Smith’s Chingford and Woodford Green constituency, where she won just 53 votes.
The previous month, she had been charged with criminal damage and threatening behaviour after placing a notice bearing the slogan ‘New Homes For The Rich’ underneath a picture of a cemetery on the East London home of Taylor McWilliams, a wealthy American friend of Prince Harry.
She posted on Facebook a smirking selfie of herself after her magistrates’ court hearing, at which she pleaded not guilty and urged ‘everyone’ to attend her next hearing for a ‘day out’ when it takes place later this month.
On the march against the Cereal Killer cafe, she carried a placard bearing the slogan ‘We must devastate the avenues where the wealthy live’.
She insists that not all the protesters that night were academics like herself. Yet they included Dr Simon Elmer, a former professor of art history, who wore a latex pig mask to hide his identity.
Dr Elmer describes himself as poet, writer, photographer and propagandist. He has worked as visiting professor at the University of Michigan, and has taught at the universities of London, Manchester, Reading and Roehampton.
He now lives in fashionable Stoke Newington in North London, where he runs an online publication called The Sorcerer’s Apprentice: Poetry, Community, Sacrifice.
Asked about the aims of the protest, he was not amused. ‘Your idiotic attempts to bring the issues of gentrification and homelessness down to the supposed class origins of the protesters [are] worthy of the schoolyard at Eton.’
He added: ‘The cereal cafe wouldn’t be there if there weren’t people who could afford, and have the inclination, to spend £4 on a bowl of cereal. The cafe isn’t just a cultural symbol of gentrification, it’s an instrument of the economic colonisation of the area. The question is, will you write it? And I think we both know the answer to that.’
Another well-heeled supporter of the mob was Adam Barr, 23, who grew up in a four-bedroom house in the East Yorkshire village of Cottingham, where his father is a company director, and who now studies history and Chinese at the University of London.
Despite his privileged background and the opportunity to attend university away from home, Mr Barr was oblivious to the irony this week after he hit out at the ‘invading hordes’ who have taken over London, ‘driving up rents and driving out people who have lived here for years’.
Anybody who dares to question the motives of Class War is abused, it seems. After someone asked how the group could justify saying it wanted ‘to see the rich dead’, an un-named anarchist on its Facebook page replied simply: ‘Hah! Hah! Hah!’ and called supporters of new businesses ‘maggots’ and ‘cxxxs’.
What, then, does Ian Bone, the bitter graduate son of Sir Gerald Coke’s butler, think of the cereal cafe protest? For a man who has never worked, he professes an unerring understanding of the working classes, but his overriding message seems to be one of self-congratulation.
Attacks on business premises, he said, were ‘fxxxxxx great. We will drive the fake elements out and repopulate with the proper working-class people rather than fxxxxxx yuppies and millionaires. They can go and fxxx themselves.
‘Our idea was to parachute behind enemy lines. Our aim was to seize control of the streets in Shoreditch for six hours and we effectively did. Look, we don’t like rich people. We’d like to drive them all out of London and repopulate with the proletariat. Got it?’
Confirming that he had never had a job — ‘Why would I want to work for a capitalist? Work is boring,’ he said — he added that he was delighted ‘shops are talking about closing down and moving out’ and that ‘people are scared of us coming to the area. That’s fxxxxxx brilliant’.
Meanwhile, the cereal cafe brothers, who prefer the virtues of hard work and enterprise to living off the State, spent last week tidying up and trying to put their business back together.
Ben Carson Destroys Democrats on Race
From the getgo, Ben Carson has stressed that his campaign was going to go places where many Republicans wouldn't, in an effort to grow the party. This week, Ben Carson met with a small group of African American leaders last week and questioned the black community's allegiance to the Democratic Party. Via the Washington Times:
“The Democrat Party, of course, is the party of the KKK. Of Jim Crow laws. And perhaps just as bad right now, of servitude. ‘Now you do this, and we’ll take care of you, pat you on the head, take care of all your needs.’ Which keeps people believing that’s what they actually need,” Mr. Carson told the small group.
If anyone can attest to this it's Carson, who overcame a life surrounded by poverty and violence to become a groundbreaking neurosurgeon. Carson's story, and his message, seem to be resonating, as a recent USA Today Poll has him second to frontrunner Donald Trump.
Political correctness is most pervasive in universities and colleges but I rarely report the incidents concerned here as I have a separate blog for educational matters.
American "liberals" often deny being Leftists and say that they are very different from the Communist rulers of other countries. The only real difference, however, is how much power they have. In America, their power is limited by democracy. To see what they WOULD be like with more power, look at where they ARE already very powerful: in America's educational system -- particularly in the universities and colleges. They show there the same respect for free-speech and political diversity that Stalin did: None. So look to the colleges to see what the whole country would be like if "liberals" had their way. It would be a dictatorship.
