BRITISH Muslims are to boycott this week?s commemoration of the liberation of Auschwitz because they claim it is not racially inclusive and does not commemorate the victims of the Palestinian conflict.
Iqbal Sacranie, secretary-general of the Muslim Council of Britain, has written to Charles Clarke, the home secretary, saying the body will not attend the event unless it includes the ?holocaust? of the Palestinian intifada….
This weekend the boycott by the leaders of Britain?s 1.2m Muslims was condemned by Khalid Mahmood, the MP for Birmingham Perry Barr. ?I?m proud to be a Muslim. But if people are boycotting this then I think it?s a mistake. People who were exterminated in the Holocaust were not just Jews. There were Romany gypsies as well. Anybody who is interested in human rights should support this remembrance.?
The Palestinian Holocaust? You miserable, lying piece of shit. You cloak your anti-semitism in this transparent, disgusting charade and expect us to believe it. This is the true face of your brand of Islam. This is how you practice your religion. And this. And these are just some of the people forced to engage in your style of worship. And they’re the lucky ones: they’re still alive.
Boycott all you like. But don’t complain when the line between Islam and Militant Islam grows thinner and less visible each day as a result of it. We know you hate Jews. You know you hate Jews. Once again, it’s time to point to the big gray thing in the living room and say, “Look! Right there! It’s an elephant!”
More and more I see this kind of behavior as the common expression of Islam. For the sake of public relations, if nothing else, perhaps you need more people like MP Mahmood doing the speaking for you. Don’t forget, however, that Mahmood, in Melanie Phillips’ terms, is suggesting that: “Muslims should turn up to the Holocaust Day ceremony because other people than Jews were murdered by the Nazis, too. So the Jewish victims ? the main victims ? can be air-brushed out of the remembrance. Anyone ?interested in human rights? can safely turn up because there were enough victims from other ethnic groups to ignore the Jews altogether.”
