Hamas supporter teaching at London university

A declared supporter of Hamas, accused by a government minister of advocating attacks on British forces, has been given a paid teaching post at London University, The Daily Telegraph can disclose.

Daud Abdullah has been appointed to teach a 22-week course entitled “Introduction to Islam” at Birkbeck, a college of the university. The move will add to growing concern in the wake of the Detroit bomber case that London University is becoming a haven for Islamic radicals.

Last year Dr Abdullah, who is also deputy secretary general of the Muslim Council of Britain, signed the controversial “Istanbul Declaration.” This applauded Hamas, demanded “jihad and resistance” against Israel, sought a “complete victory for all of Palestine,” stated that “everyone standing with the Zionist entity [Israel]” should be treated the same as the Israelis, and said that the sending of “foreign warships into Muslim waters” was a “declaration of war” which must be “fought by all means.”

The then Communities Secretary, Hazel Blears, claimed the declaration advocated “violence against our troops” and “attacks on Jewish communities all around the world” and broke off relations with the MCB when they refused to sack Dr Abdullah.

Dr Abdullah has refused to withdraw his support for the Istanbul Declaration, though he has always insisted that he opposes attacks on British forces. The Government last week restored ties with the MCB – but still refuses to have any contact with Dr Abdullah.

Houriya Ahmed, of the think-tank the Centre for Social Cohesion, said: “This is deeply worrying. It is bad enough when hardline preachers are invited on campus but to have soneone actually lecturing on behalf of the university is far worse. It is shocking they think that this man idea is suitable to introduce students to Islam.”

The appointment is the latest in a series of controversies involving Islamist extremism and London University. The Detroit bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, was allegedly radicalised while a student at UCL, another college of the university. Earlier this week the Telegraph reported how UCL’s Islamic society, which Abdulmutallab once chaired, is to host a series of speakers with links to extremism and alleged terrorism.

It has also emerged that Reza Pankhurst, a teacher at another London University college, the LSE, is a leading activist in Hizb ut Tahrir, an extremist, separatist and anti-Semitic group. Numerous other meetings with radical speakers have been held on the university’s premises. Ms Ahmed said: “There appears to be a particular problem with the University of London. They have a duty of care to their students and they are failing to provide it.”

Last week senior US government officials accused Britain of not doing enough to tackle extremism, saying the UK has the West’s “greatest concentration of active al-Qaeda supporters.” Particular concern was expressed about British universities.

The course taught by Dr Abdullah, at Birkbeck’s Stratford campus, began in October and is due to last until Easter. A spokesman for Birkbeck College said: “If anyone raises concerns about a member of our staff, we will investigate them.”

Dr Abdullah said last night: “I have never had any complaints from the authorities about my teaching. There are members of the police forces and the intelligence agencies who attend my course. I remain a signatory of the Istanbul Declaration and I believe the Palestinian people have the right to resist but I dispute Hazel Blears’ interpretation of the Declaration.” Asked whether he supported attacks on anyone who “stood with” Israel, such as British Jews or Israeli civilians, he said: “Let’s not get into semantics. I have made my views clear.”

Almost half of Britons would oppose mosque being built in their area, finds study

The majority of the population believe that Britain is divided by religion, a Government-backed inquiry has found.And around half of people believe that religious diversity has had a negative impact on the nation.

The warnings on the extent of the divide between Muslims and much of the rest of the country were produced by the British Social Attitudes survey, an annual study produced with funding from Whitehall.

Islamist clerics like Anjem Choudary and Douglas Murray have done nothing for the perception of Islam in the UK : Image Courtesy-http://www.dailymail.co.uk/

The study underlined the depth of suspicion about Islamic influence now held by many in Britain, finding that only one in four people feel positively about Islam.The figures also showed that more than half of the population would be strongly opposed to the building or opening of a mosque in their area.They follow signs in other Government research that majority attitudes against Islam are hardening and that tension over religion is increasing.

The latest findings, to be published in full later this month, come in the wake of the furore over extremist Anjem Choudary’s plan to hold a march of Islamists carrying coffins through Wootten Bassett to symbolise Muslims murdered by British forces.Although Muslim representative bodies have condemned the idea and individual Muslims have underlined their own respect for British soldiers, the Choudary stunt has provoked widespread anger and the risk of a backlash.

The British Social Attitudes findings also follow the Christmas Day airline bombing attempt by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, suspected to have been radicalised while he was president of the Islamic Society at University College London.The Abdulmuttallab plot has been followed by a new and disruptive wave of security checks for airline passengers.

The Social Attitudes Survey has been produced annually since the early 1980s by leading academics from a detailed poll of more than 4,000 people.It is followed closely by ministers and findings have been used, for example, to justify Government inaction to shore up the institution of marriage.

The latest findings will raise concern that the Government’s policy of producing ‘social cohesion’ by backing moderate Islam and isolating extremism is not working.Another half – 52 per cent – believe Britain is deeply divided along religious lines. Almost half – 45 per cent – reject the claim that diversity has brought benefits to the country.

They say that religious diversity has had a negative impact.Last month the Citizenship Survey produced by the Communities Department found that the proportion of the population which believes that Britain has a lot of religious prejudice has risen from fewer than a quarter to almost a third – 24 per cent to 31 per cent – since 2005.

It also found that nearly two thirds of people believe that religious prejudice has grown since the early years of the past decade.

Ministers have been anxious to appease resentment of Muslims and minority groups among less well-off and well-educated white people in recent months, fearing a backlash from one-time core Labour voters when the election comes in the spring.

However the British Social Attitudes findings suggest that unhappiness over the influence of Islam has spread beyond poor white areas and now concerns a majority of people.

Active protests over Islam have so far been confined to fringe groups. In September a far-right organisation calling itself the English Defence League staged a march that led to scuffles outside a new mosque in Harrow in North West London.

But there has been no evidence of anything more than occasional vandalism – of a kind similar to that experienced by churches and synagogues – against the great majority of the 300 mosques in England.

How prepared are you if terrorists strike again??

This one is very informative and MUST read article from Juval Aviv, the former Israeli Agent. The information is not only useful and very much needed one for India also.

Juval Aviv was the Israeli Agent upon whom the movie ‘Munich’ was based. He was Golda Meir’s bodyguard, and she appointed him to track down and bring to justice the Palestinian terrorists who took the Israeli athletes hostage and killed them during the Munich Olympic Games.

Staying Safe by Juval Aviv : Image Courtesy - Wikipedia

In a lecture in New York City he shared information that EVERY American needs to know — but that our government has not yet shared with us.

He predicted the London subway bombing on the Bill O’Reilly show on Fox News stating publicly that it would happen within a week. At the time, O’Reilly laughed, and mocked him saying that in a week he wanted him back on the show. Unfortunately, within a week the terrorist attack had occurred.

Juval Aviv gave intelligence (via what he had gathered in Israel and the Middle East) to the Bush Administration about 9/11, a month before it occurred. His report specifically said they would use planes as bombs and target high profile buildings and monuments. Congress has since hired him as a security consultant.

Now for his future predictions. He predicts the next terrorist attack on the U.S. will occur within the next few months.

Forget hijacking airplanes, because he says terrorists will NEVER try and hijack a plane again as they know the people onboard will never go down quietly again. Aviv believes our airport security is a joke — that we have beenreactionary rather than proactive in developing strategies that are truly effective.

For example:

1) Our airport technology is outdated. We look for metal, and the new explosives are made of plastic.
2) He talked about how some idiot tried to light his shoe on fire. Because of that, now everyone has to take off their shoes. A group of idiots tried to bring aboard liquid explosives. Now we can’t bring liquids on board. He says he’s waiting for some suicidal maniac to pour liquid explosive on his underwear; at which point, security will have us all traveling naked!
3) We only focus on security when people are heading to the gates.

Every strategy we have is reactionary.

Aviv says that if a terrorist attack targets airports in the future, they will target busy times on the front end of the airport when/where people are checking in. It would be easy for someone to take two suitcases of explosives, walk up to a busy check-in line, ask a person next to them to watch their bags for a minute while they run to the restroom or get a drink, and then detonate the bags BEFORE security even gets involved. In Israel, security checks bags BEFORE people can even ENTER the airport.

Aviv says the next terrorist attack here in America is imminent and will involve suicide bombers and non-suicide bombers in places where large groups of people congregate. (i.e., Disneyland, Las Vegas casinos, big cities (New York, San Francisco, Chicago, etc.) and that it will also include shopping malls, subways in rush hour, train stations, etc., as well as, rural America this time. The interlands (Wyoming, Montana, etc.).

The attack will be characterized by simultaneous detonations around the country (terrorists like big impact), involving at least 5-8 cities, including rural areas.

Aviv says terrorists won’t need to use suicide bombers in many of the larger cities, because at places like the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, they can simply valet park a car loaded with explosives and walk away.

Aviv says all of the above is well known in intelligence circles, but that our U. S. Government does not want to ‘alarm American citizens’ with the facts. The world is quickly going to become ‘a different place’, and issues like ‘global warming’ and political correctness will become totally irrelevant.

On an encouraging note, he says that Americans don’t have to be concerned about being nuked. Aviv says the terrorists who want to destroy America will not use sophisticated weapons. They like to use suicide as a front-line approach. It’s cheap, it’s easy, it’s effective; and they have an infinite abundance of young militants more than willing to ‘meet their destiny’.

He also says the next level of terrorists, over which America  should be most concerned, will not be coming from abroad.  But will be, instead, ‘homegrown’, having attended and been educated in our own schools and universities right here in the U.S. He says to look for ’students’ who frequently travel back and forth to the  Middle East. These young terrorists will be most dangerous because they will know our language and will fully understand the habits of Americans; but that we Americans won’t know/understand a thing about them.

Aviv says that, as a people, Americans are unaware and uneducated about the terrorist threats we will inevitably face.  America still has only a handful of Arabic and Farsi speaking people in our intelligence networks, and Aviv says it is critical that we change that fact SOON.

So, what can America do to protect itself? From an intelligence perspective, Aviv says the U.S. needs to stop relying on satellites and technology for intelligence. We need to, instead, follow Israel’s, Ireland’s and England’s hands-on examples of human intelligence, both from an infiltration perspective as well as to pay attention to, and trust ‘aware’ citizens to help. We need to engage and educate ourselves as citizens; however, our U. S. government continues to treat us, its citizens, ‘like babies’. Our government thinks we ‘can’t handle the truth’ and are concerned that we’ll panic if we understand the realities of terrorism. Aviv says this is a deadly mistake.

Aviv recently created/executed a security test for our Congress, by placing an empty briefcase in five well-traveled spots in five major cities. The results? Not one person called 911 or sought a policeman to check it out. In fact, in Chicago, someone tried to steal the briefcase!

In comparison, Aviv says that citizens of Israel are so well ‘trained’ that an unattended bag or package would be reported in seconds by citizen(s) who know to publicly shout, ‘Unattended Bag!’ The area would be quickly & calmly cleared by the citizens themselves.

Unfortunately, America  hasn’t been yet ‘hurt enough’ by terrorism for their government to fully understand the need to educate its citizens or for the government to understand that it’s their citizens who are, inevitably, the best first-line of defense against terrorism.

Aviv also was concerned about the high number of children here in America who were in preschool and kindergarten after 9/11, who were ‘lost’ without parents being able to pick them up, and about our schools that had no plan in place to best care for the students until parents could get there. (In New York City, this was days, in some cases!)

He stresses the importance of having a plan, that’s agreed upon within your family, of how to respond in the event of a terrorist emergency. He urges parents to contact their children’s schools and demand that the schools too, develop plans of actions, just as they do in Israel.

Does your family know what to do if you can’t contact one another by phone? Where would you gather in an emergency? He says we should all have a plan that is easy enough for even our youngest children to remember and follow.

Aviv says that the U. S. government has in force a plan, that in the event of another terrorist

attack, EVERYONE’s ability to use cell phones, blackberries, etc., will immediately be cut-off, as this is the preferred communication source used by terrorists and is often the way that their bombs are detonated.

How will you communicate with your loved ones in the event you cannot speak to each other? You need to have a plan.

Islam’s European Conquest: Is America Next?

Filed under: Islam,Jihad,USA — thecandideye @ 6:00 AM

Recently Archbishop of Canterbury in England has backed introducing Sharia law in Britain! Little does he know about the implications of his backing.

Archbishop backs Sharia law!!

This post is an excerpt and it is written by John Griffing.Appeared on americanthinker.com.

“Islamic lands that were occupied by the enemies will once again become Islamic…We proclaim that we will conquer Rome, like Constantinople was conquered once, and as it will be conquered again.”

– Ali Al-Faqir, the Jordanian Minister for Religious Endowment

Britain, birthplace of parliamentary democracy, has fallen to Islam. Oxford, once home to the likes of C.S. Lewis, now houses a giant Eastern Islamic Studies Center. If this were the only Islamic addition to Oxford, the mood would be less somber, but when Oxford citizens are forced to awake every morning to the Muslim call to prayer with the full consent of the Church of England, nothing short of conquest has taken place.

Britain’s Muslim demographic is now so dominant that the British government recently began to allow Islamic civil and religious law, known as Sharia, to be enforced along side British law.

But if religious tolerance is good, why is this a problem? Simple-this is not an issue of religious liberty. Islam is not designed to co-exist with western civilization. It is designed to conquer it.

Most would agree that Judeo-Christian values are consistent with Anglo-American tradition. Can the same be said of Islam? Even Muslims don’t think so. The chief Justice of London’s Sharia Court made this chilling statement:

If Sharia is implemented then you can turn this country into a haven of peace…Once a thief’s hand is cut off, nobody is going to steal. Once an adulterer is stoned, nobody is going to commit this crime at all. This is why we say we want to offer it to British society.

Statements like this have not stopped prominent British figures from endorsing Sharia. The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Protestant equivalent of the Pope, called Sharia “unavoidable.”

Under Sharia, non-Muslims are forbidden to even criticize Islam. This is significant, considering that a Policy Exchange Poll found that forty percent of British Muslims prefer to be governed by Sharia. Thirty-six percent believe that “apostates” from Islam should be punished by death. A Guardian Poll indicates that a sizeable number of British Muslims favor terrorist attacks on the United States and even England.

There are presently 85 Sharia courts all across Britain, and, although initial defenders of the transformation claimed that Sharia courts would only exercise authority when consistent with British law, recent developments indicate that Muslims want Sharia pushed still further. Many Muslims advocate a separate police force due to the repeated embarrassment of rampant “honor killings.”

Honor killings represent a new and growing form of homicide in many European countries, whereby Muslim families collaborate to kill fellow family members to restore honor. This practice is not alien to the US. Recently, a US Muslim man beheaded his wife, confessed to authorities, and still received a scheduled award from the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).

Britain is not alone in its Muslim plight. In 2005, France experienced massive Muslim riots in 300 cities. Public buildings were firebombed, 200 policemen were injured, and 4,000 were arrested. This is not unusual as a Muslim response to perceived offenses. Remember the Danish cartoons?

The central problem is assimilation. Most Muslims don’t move to a country with the purpose of becoming real citizens of that country. Muslims don’t want to be British or French. Muslims come for the wealth of the west, and to make the west Muslim. The evidence is transparent to anyone paying attention. The Parisian riots of 2005 were committed by second and third generation children of Muslim immigrants.

The ultimate aspiration of Muslims is total, global dominion within a theocracy known as a “caliphate.” Be they peaceful Muslims or radical Muslims, all share in this goal.

And, incredibly, we cooperate with this reverse assimilation. Somehow we Westerners now feel compelled to assimilate with Muslims instead of expecting the reverse. Paris fashion runways have even begun designing and modeling “Muslim inspired head wraps and…tunics splattered with simulated blood in what some fashionistas dubbed carnage couture.”

The problem of Muslim integration is so sensitive that 751 areas have been willingly ceded to Islamic residents by the French government. Called “no-go zones” by many, these areas are off-limits to non-Muslims who value their lives. The UK is home to an indistinguishable number of “no-go zones,” with violence toward non-Muslims increasing in once peaceful areas.

Dutch Muslims have such a grip on Holland that those who speak out must live in safe houses, like Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders. Yet the Dutch Minister of Justice still wants to make full Sharia an option on the next ballot, which would make Holland the first fully Islamic theocracy in the heart of Europe.

Germany could be next. Matthias Rohe, Judge on the Court of Appeals in Nuremburg wants to see full Sharia in Germany, saying, “we are ready to accept these kind of differences and would apply the norms.” Many areas of Germany are now off limits to police and other uniformed personnel, as in France and the UK.

Muslim majorities will soon be a reality. By 2050, one out of every three people in Europe will be age 60 and over. The UN’s Populations Division estimates that by 2050, if current birth rates are held, Europe will shrink by 200 million as a new Muslim majority dawns.

And now, onto this stage strides President Barack Hussein Obama, who advocates the European model for all aspects of American life; for the economy, for healthcare, and now, in our dealings with Muslims. We know where that road leads. It has been travelled by an entire continent now doomed to cultural and economic destruction.

Is this what we want? Do we really want European civilization, cultivated for centuries, to suddenly vanish? Do we really want American culture to disappear?

President Obama travels the world apologizing for America’s very existence. He redefines Islam’s historical goal as one of peaceful coexistence, its moral ethos as one of “tolerance and the dignity of all human beings,” despite the evidence to the contrary. He pledges that the US “never will be-at war with Islam,” blindly ignoring the present strategic situation. He claims that we are the “biggest Muslim country in the world,” despite the fact that 80 percent of Americans say they are Christian.

The US has steadily been bowing to Islamic pressure. Many US banks and investment firms have formally adopted Sharia Finance. Harold Koh, recent Dean of Yale Law School and current Obama Advisor to the Secretary of State, openly talks about the compatibility of Sharia with American legal precedent.

What is our fascination with Islam? Why are we so willing to capitulate to its aims without resistance? Can’t western civilization continue to champion religious liberty without committing suicide?

Radical Islam is inconsistent with American ideals, plain and simple. No two ideologies that embrace concepts so divergent as global domination and freedom can hope to coexist. There can be no compromise.

Europe is among the walking dead; their future is an Islamic one. America, however, still has a choice if we have the courage to make it.

UK & China stall move to blacklist Masood Azhar

Maulana Masood Azhar, the commander of Jaish-E-Muhhamed terrorist outfit,which was responsible for kidnapping and killing of westerners in 1995,Mumbai train blasts in 2008,Terrorism in Kashmir has received support from unexpected quarter.China and UK have not welcomed and stalled India’s move to blacklist Azhar under UN Securtity council resolution 1267. More details on this are here.

Even though all the Pandits in Kashmir have been driven out of their homes and leading their lives as slaves in their own country, this telltale evidences against Jaish-E-Muhammed and its founder have failed to create any strong counter action from India on this.When our Congress government hesitates to carry out even the Supreme court order and seriously considers giving quarter to Afzal guru, there is no wonder this thing has happened.Unless until our speeches and actions match, the world will not pay heed to our genuine requests and this is not an election compaign where one promises moon and delivers nothing.The world needs some concrete evidences and steps  that have been taken to counter the menace of such terrorists.

The west will not care as long as the terrorism happens in our soil.The moment something goes awry in their country, the same folks would stall the Security council and make a mountain out of molehill.Time and again they have shown this behaviour.It is high time for India to stand on its own and fight these terrorists.Otherwise,we will be suffering from the terrorism perpetually.
