DIDSBURY MOSQUE FINALLY IN THE MEDIA SPOTLIGHT

Straight away after the Manchester Arena bombing, Tommy Robinson was outside Didsbury mosque publicizing the fact that preachers had incited violence at the mosque. Now, over a year later, the shameful mainstream media (perhaps “lamestream media” is a more accurate phrase) is finally picking up the story. From the BBC:

Manchester mosque sermon ‘called for armed jihad’, say scholars

This story is only now getting publicity because these two “Islamic scholars” have commented on it, not because the BBC did any sort of investigating of their own. Clearly the MSM were terrified to touch the story without some official Muslim leading the way.

Here is Tommy’s video (6 Jun 2017):

Tommy Robinson confronts Didsbury Mosque hosting hate preachers

Quote:

It took us about ten minutes to go and look through the previous speakers that have come here in the last year, speakers who have called for the death of homosexuals, who have called for the killing of British troops, who have called for the killing of apostates

That’s 10 minutes BBC people, 10 minutes, not a YEAR! Maajid Nawaz also commented on LBC on the “extremist sympathizing” preachers at the mosque and fund raising for Al-Qaeda connected groups just 5 days after the attack:

Why Maajid Nawaz Refuses To Praise Didsbury Mosque For Speaking Out Against Isis

A man appeared on BBC Question Time (26 May 2017) holding up a leaflet shortly after the attack as well, yet the BBC managed not to notice anything was amiss at the mosque, until now:

Manchester attack: Question Time debates ‘Didsbury Mosque’ leaflet – BBC News

Douglas Murray wrote about that QT incident and the more general response at the Spectator, quote:

If the bomber is the problem, then his mosque has to be the answer. It’s the same everywhere: Don’t look back in anger, just forward in blind, bovine hope.

He also asked questions about extremism at Salford University which Abedi apparently attended. See the article in full:

Blind, bovine hope will get us nowhere - it’s time to change our response to Islamic extremism

We featured Tommy’s video at the time:

March In Manchester On Sunday 11th June


MAINSTREAM MEDIA CONTINUING TO DEMONIZE TOMMY ROBINSON

Just a reminder Tommy’s next court date is 4 September. Tommy is prosecuted, preachers inciting violence (at a mosque that a suicide bomber who killed children attended) that he exposes are not. Meanwhile the mainstream media is continuing to demonize Tommy in the run up to his re-trial, thereby surely prejudicing the outcome. The BBC website posted this 10 minute video clip on Friday including an interview with Mark Rowley (the former head of the Metropolitan Police’s counter terrorism unit):

The rise of the extreme right-wing in Britain

The clip quotes “former extremist” Matthew Collins who claims that arguments pushed aggressively by the extreme right are entering mainstream politics and the mainstream media. Mark Rowley disagrees but uses a curious choice of phrase in the clip:

“attaching it to mainstream political debate”

In another clip next to this clip was a clip from an earlier interview with Mark Rowley where he tried to equate Tommy Robinson’s views with Anjem Choudary’s (@0:59):

‘Four far-right attacks foiled last year’

Anjem Choudary was very assiduous in staying the right side of the line legally for a very very long time until he slipped up in expressing support for the Islamic State and that enabled us to put him in prison, Tommy Robinson er I think in some ways is doing exactly the same

Also this from the Daily Mail:

EXCLUSIVE: He’s beyond the bail! Far-Right thug Tommy Robinson soaks up the sun in Tenerife with German Islamophobe banned from Britain – and he’s back in court in TWO WEEKS

Tommy confronts a Daily Mail pseudo-journalist. From Jihad Watch:

Video: Tommy Robinson questions Daily Mail “journalist” James King about his bias and lies

(He’s never read the Islamic texts but he just knows Tommy is all wrong about Islam).


TERROR ATTACK FAULT OF MEAN SOCIAL MEDIA USERS

Breitbart commented on an article in the Independent which appeared to blame the latest vehicle attack in Westminster on commenters on social media:

Leftist Media: Apparent Terror Attack a ‘Reckoning’ for Mean Tweets and Online Comments

The article in the Independent (via the Web Archive):

If the Westminster car crash turns out to be a terrorist attack, this is what we should bear in mind

Quote:

Sooner or later there was going to be a reckoning, a tangible act in response to the goading and climate of fear we seem to have generated in our peaceful land.


BREXIT AND THE EUROPEAN ARREST WARRANT (EAW)

From the Commentator, an article about the flaws of the EAW:

Brexit Britain and policing Project Fear

One of the biggest flaws of course is that British nationals may be extradited to countries with corrupt regimes. This and other points are made in the above article. With the EU’s indiscriminately expansionist track record there is just no knowing what sort of countries will be joining in the future, Erdogan’s Turkey perhaps?


THE MEDIA KNIVES ARE OUT FOR JEREMY CORBYN

There seems to be a concerted media attack going on against Corbyn at the moment from both sides of the political divide. There certainly seemed to be plenty of material available, it’s surprising a little that they hadn’t noticed some of it before.

What’s this, Jeremy Corbyn doing the Muslim Brotherhood salute?? From The Telegraph:

Jeremy Corbyn condemned after image emerges of him making Muslim Brotherhood salute

Wikipedia has a whole page about the salute, its origins and meaning:

Rabia sign

Jeremy is pretty fed up with it all, in fact he has complained to IPSO a press regulator:

Labour complains to regulator over coverage of cemetery visit

Quote:

It is highly unusual for a senior politician to turn to the press regulator over negative media coverage.

Let’s hope he takes the press to court so we can see how much he believes in the freedom of the press, and how much of the story is factual. There is a picture of Jeremy touching a wreath in this article:

Jeremy Corbyn: I did attend wreath ceremony for Munich killers

From The Telegraph an interview, quote:

Erm, I was present when it was laid, I don’t think I was actually involved.


LORD SHEIKH GETS CAUGHT UP IN SAME CONTROVERSY

Conservative peer Mohamed Sheikh, who we mentioned last week, was apparently at the same event mentioned above. From the Daily Mail:

Tory peer Lord Sheikh attended the Tunis conference alongside Jeremy Corbyn

From the Express, Lord Sheikh responds to the criticism blaming the backlash on his call for Boris Johnson to be kicked out of the Tory party:

Tory peer BLAMES ‘politically motivated’ wreath-laying backlash on Boris ‘being wrong’

Quote, an extract from a letter from Tory MPs:

“We cannot, as a party, rightly and robustly criticise the Leader of the Opposition for his attendance at this conference while allowing the attendance of a Conservative peer at the same event to pass without comment or complaint. To do so would be to indulge in hypocrisy and double standards.

In our opinion, Lord Sheikh’s attendance at this conference was hugely disappointing and raises significant questions that need to be answered.”


DENMARK BANS RELIGIOUS SLAUGHTER

From the Independent:

Denmark bans kosher and halal slaughter as minister says ‘animal rights come before religion’


CRIME UP 11 %

From the Express:

‘We’re failing the public’ – New head of Police Federation makes EXTRAORDINARY claim

Also from the Express, apparently there are 15 acid attacks a week in the UK, the latest an attack on a 17 year old boy:

LONDON BLOODBATH: Boy suffers burns in horror acid attack in Romford


MIGRANT BENEFIT HANDOUTS

From the Daily Mail:

Number of foreigners claiming UK benefits leaps 41% in 5 years: More than 400,000 now handed payouts that cost taxpayers billions each year


EU MIGRANT CRIME REPORT

Janice Atkinson MEP produced a report on migrant crime (foreword by Matteo Salvini, Deputy Prime Minister of Italy).:

Migrant Crime Wave – The EU Cover-Up Revealed

Quote:

In October 2017, the Soufan Center found that of the over 40,000 foreigners that joined Daesh from more than 110 countries, around 5600 from 33 different countries had returned home. In July 2017, the Radicalisation Awareness Network estimated that about 30 percent of over 5000 Foreign Terrorist Fighters (FTF) who resided in Europe and left to Syria, Iraq and Libya came back to the continent.


THE ASSAULT ON FREEDOM OF SPEECH CONTINUES TO INTENSIFY

From Stefan Molyneux on Bitchute (Youtube alternative):

I’m About To Be Banned From YouTube

Stefan and others have argued that because the top social media platforms are limiting right wing voices they are therefore exercising editorial control and that therefore they are effectively publishers responsible for incitements to violence from Islamic groups and Antifa that they have not banned.

Mark Dice made a humorous video about censorship on Twitter (5 minutes long):

They Won’t Stop

Robert Spencer says he’s been axed by Patreon without warning or explanation:

I've been axed from Patreon, without explanation, warning or notice — no doubt as part of the ongoing efforts of the Left to deny all platforms to those who reject its agenda. To those who supported me there, thank you, and I'm sorry we couldn't follow through on plans. pic.twitter.com/rJ8kaUNqYI

IS IT VIRTUOUS TO DEFEND A VIOLENT MAN FROM AFGHANISTAN?

From Voice of Europe:
