Mayor seen to be welcoming Middle East terrorist sympathiser cleric.

| | Comments (4)

Why did the Mayor of London Ken Livingstone "officially" welcome, at City Hall today, the controversial Muslim cleric Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi who is seen to be supporting suicide bombers in and around Israel ?

It hardly matters at all what Al-Qaradawi is due to speak about regarding integration of Muslim youth into mainstream British society. The fact that he has been banned from the USA for anti-Israeli statements and that he seems to be providing some kind of religous or moral justification for suicide bomber terrorists.

N.B. the term "Anti-Semitic" is in danger of being hijacked by the politically correct media and by certain Zionist extremists, who apply the term to those who oppose the state of Israel, playing on public sympathy for the victims of the Nazi, Soviet and, in former times, Crusader persecution of the Jews, obscuring the fact that both Arabs and Jews are "Semitic" peoples.

What is the point of all the anti-terrorist measures which are costing us Londoners so much money and loss of freedoms, if the Mayor is seen to be be up to his old tricks of supporting terrorist sympathisers with our money ?

The Mayor is not elected or paid to waste our money on "Foreign Policy" issues, but his actions can and do reflect badly on London's international reputation abroad.

What is written here can only be understood within the context of the post 9/11 hatred campaign against moslems worldwide. If the person who wrote this cries over Dr. Yusuf alleged anti-semitism, the I invite her/him to be neutral and have a look on Israel's crimes against humanity in Palestine where killing Arab women and children is a daily exercise for the IDF.


My prayers are with the British people.

As the threats of further acts of terrorism increase, we are told to be vigilant. But most people really have no idea what to think or what to do. People want and need concrete ideas on what they can do to prevent further acts of terrorism and protect their family and country.

I have written a concise book entitled: ?Stopping Osama: A Civilized Approach, 50 Things You Can Do To Prevent Terrorism?.

Whatever the Israeli army are doing also should not obscure the debate.

Dr. Yusuf "alleged" anti-semitism is indeed very real - after all - why should suicide bombings be permitted against Israeli children and nobody else.

Sorry, this man is as racist as any Islamaphobe - it may be trendy to hate Israel but their citizens are innocent humans also.

I should also point out that although Arabs may be "semetic", the term anti-semetic was coined to categorise the particular form of racism reserved exclusively for Jews in the 19th century.

It is not antisemitic to criticise Israel but it is to hate Jews on account of the aggression of their army.

Perhaps those who hate Israel would take up the cudgels on behalf of the millions of oppressed woman in the Islamic world or is that not trendy enough?

40% of Israeli boardrooms consist of women. How many female Company Directors in the Arab world?

Hints and Tips for Whistleblowers

There are many good people trapped in the bureaucracies which run London. If you are thinking about blowing the whistle on shadowy and powerful people in Government or commerce, and their dubious policies then you need be very careful these days. The mainstream media and bloggers also need to take simple precautions to help preserve the anonymity of their sources e.g.
