The Bullingdon buffoon David “I’m a zionist” Cameron scuttled off to Munich to attack British Muslims, giving the English Defence League the credence they crave, on the very day the racist EDL continue their assault on Muslims in Luton.
Perhaps the most telling statement he made was:
“This ignores that fact that many of those found guilty of terrorist offences in the UK have been graduates, and often middle class. They point to the grievances about Western foreign policy and say: stop riding roughshod over Muslim countries and the terrorism will end. But there are many people – Muslim and non-Muslim alike – who are angry about western foreign policy and don’t resort to acts of terrorism. They also point to the profusion of unelected leaders across the Middle East and say: stop propping them up and creating the conditions for extremism to flourish.
But this raises the question: if a lack of democracy is the problem, why are there extremists in free and open societies?
Yes, we must resolve sources of tension – not least in Palestine.
And yes, we should be on the side of openness and political reform in the Middle East.”
The Akh agrees with LondonMuslim that this is no attack on Multiculturalism or as others will seek to highlight about a new concept called “muscular liberalism” “what’s that then – Clegg and Cable on steroids?). The reality is this speech which was probably written by Israelite Michael Gove is actually a grotesque racist attack on normal decent Muslims going about their everyday business in Cameron’s collapsing society yet sadly being tarred with the same brush as a small but vociferous bunch of extremist fruitcakes.
The issue of immigration is embedded in the DNA of Tory closet racists the new test is when Tories talk of Muslims you can be sure that they are in serious political trouble while talk of dinner table Islamophobia by Sayeeda Warsi was a temporary diversion.
Lets be clear we need no lectures from Cameron and his fellow bunch of Eton boys. Muslims increasingly are tacking the extremists within our community unlike Cameron who remains silent when Tory Councillors abuse Muslims. Cameron while you revert to Maggies tone about the UK being “swamped” or Michael Howards “are you thinking what we are thinking”, the reality is Muslims today in Luton are victims and on the receiving end of a violent riot.
Not all Muslims are extremists, blah, blah, blah….but just throw enough mud at the religion to curry favour with reactionary populist sentiment on the subject to deflect from the right royal screwing you’re giving them through cutbacks in services and jobs and massively hiking their cost of living.
Also, why make a speech about the UK in Munich and not here?
Why make such a speech on the day the EDL are holding their biggest march?
‘This terrorism is indiscriminate and thrust upon us’ – Nothing to do with Western foreign policy over decades then, just them picking on us for no reason?
‘Our way of life is at stake’ – Our way of life is more at threat from this coalition government than by any extremists.
Where’s the divide?
The British debate about political Islam is catastrophically muddled 29 January 2011
The outcry over Sayeeda Warsi’s speech on Islamophobia last week cannot be understood without a clear grasp of the balance of power within the coalition government. There are two factions, and the strongest can loosely be described as neoconservative.
This faction remains an unconditional supporter of the United States of America, continues to defend the Iraq invasion, powerfully admires and in some cases worships Tony Blair, and automatically takes the side of Israel in the middle east.
