A notorious British protest movement called The English Defense League has declared war on radical Islam, a battle they are taking to the streets in rowdy, often violent protests.
Their founder, Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, goes by the alias, “Tommy Robinson.” He claims that his group is not anti-Muslim, but several of his followers have been connected to hate attacks like mosque bombings.
Apparently these passport control officers thought that asking this Muslim woman to show her face would have been “Islamophobic.” The obvious problem, of course, is that the person inside the niqab could have been anyone. We have recently seen men use niqabs and burqas to conceal their identity and commit crimes and to escape from police custody. It’s simple common sense that in any situation where one is required to show identification, one should be required to show one’s face. But this is not an age of common sense. Not by a long shot.
“What I meant when I said that was that the way in which faith (Islam) was being sidelined and marginalised was wrong, and that it had to change That faith should be an important informer of public debate….”
“I said that we would tackle head on, the tough issues like the rising tide of anti-Muslim sentiment in Europe. In the UK I felt the bigotry of Islamophobia had increased, so much so that sentiment against Muslims had become acceptable – even in the most civilised of settings.
I felt that it was time for government to respond. I’m delighted that this Government has done so. I said that we would reach out to new faith communities as well as revive and restore some of our oldest relationships.”
Islam, nothing but Islam. David Camoron stacked his government with useful idiots who would never dare to oppose her filth….
