AltNewsMedia has been examining the origins of the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB). Since the MCB is a ‘go to’ mainstream media source for Muslim opinion here in the UK, it is worth investigating where the organisation came from, who runs it, and what it stands for.
The genesis of the MCB can be found in the ferocious 1989 UK Salman Rushdie street demonstrations following the “Satanic Verses” publication and the subsequent Fatwa against Rushdie decreed by Ayatollah Khomeini. This was the first occasion of UK Muslim “street power” and it caused major political upset at the time. Press reports at the time state;
“An estimated 20,000 demonstrators waved banners denouncing author Salman Rushdie and shouted slogans such as “Rushdie must die!” as they began their march in Hyde Park.”
Hamed Abdul-Samad is right. Slavery is commonplace in Islamic history. Generally there were throughout history Muslim believers who believed themselves entitled to enslave non-Muslims, and did so, as I show in detail in my book The History of Jihad From Muhammad to ISIS.
“German-Egyptian Scholar Hamed Abdel-Samad: The Arabs Enslaved the Africans More Than Any Other Nation Did,” MEMRI, May 27, 2018:
German Egyptian scholar Hamed Abdel-Samad dedicated an episode of his Box of Islam show to slavery in Islam. Abdel-Samad said that 29 verses in the Quran endorse slavery and that “the Arabs enslaved the Africans more than any other nation did.” He added that while Abraham Lincoln led an army of white men to fight other white men in order to liberate slaves, but no similar initiative was taken by Muslims. The show aired on May 27.
Iranian Christians are in dire straits in the Islamic Republic because of a new wave of regime repression that has largely not registered in the media due to the country’s economic free fall and popular uprising by a people fed up with the tyrannical nature of the regime.
The mullahs have launched a cut-throat campaign to silence their opponents, and on top of their list are Iran’s persecuted Christians – an ancient people of the land the regime stigmatizes as a gateway to the West.
The neologism "Islamophobia" seems to be a quasi-scientific effort to suggest that suspicion of Islam is simultaneously irrational and racist. Even more of a concern is the attempt to employ science in the service of politics.
The Nazis in the last century concocted a scientific theory about the inferiority of the Jews in order to rationalize their plan to annihilate Jewry. Now pseudo-science is used to defend Muslims. The disturbing fact is that in both cases, we deploy social science in the service of a political agenda. While some scholars such as John Denham have drawn parallels between modern Islamophobia and anti-Semitism, their implications are not only illogical, but dangerously deceptive.
A sweeping history of the often-violent conflict between Islam and the West, shedding a revealing light on current hostilities
The West and Islam--the sword and scimitar--have clashed since the mid-seventh century, when, according to Muslim tradition, the Roman emperor rejected Prophet Muhammad's order to abandon Christianity and convert to Islam, unleashing a centuries-long jihad on Christendom.
Sword and Scimitar chronicles the decisive battles that arose from this ages-old Islamic jihad, beginning with the first major Islamic attack on Christian land in 636, through the Muslim occupation of nearly three-quarters of Christendom which prompted the Crusades, followed by renewed Muslim conquests by Turks and Tatars, to the European colonization of the Muslim world in the 1800s, when Islam largely went on the retreat--until its reemergence in recent times. Using original sources in Arabic and Greek, preeminent historian Raymond Ibrahim describes each battle in vivid detail and explains how these wars and the larger historical currents of the age reflect the cultural fault lines between Islam and the West.
The majority of these landmark battles--including the battles of Yarmuk, Tours, Manzikert, the sieges at Constantinople and Vienna, and the crusades in Syria and Spain--are now forgotten or considered inconsequential. Yet today, as the West faces a resurgence of this enduring Islamic jihad, Sword and Scimitar provides the needed historical context to understand the current relationship between the West and the Islamic world--and why the Islamic State is merely the latest chapter of an old history.
That she was seen as a piece of meat is evident in other ways: “The Pakistani men I came into contact with made me believe I was nothing more than a slut, a white whore. They treated me like a leper, apart from when they wanted sex. I was less than human to them, I was rubbish.”
What explains the ongoing victimization of European women by Muslim men—which exists well beyond the UK and has become epidemic in Germany Sweden, and elsewhere?
While these sordid accounts are routinely dismissed as the activities of “criminals,” they are in fact reflective of nearly fourteen centuries of Muslim views on and treatment of European women. Nothing in Kate’s account—not even the otherwise extreme aspect of taking her to Morocco to be a sex slave—has not happened countless times over the centuries.
“I never meant to teach violence to my students. We only used the props that we already had to cut costs for parents.” Why did he have cardboard cutouts of assault rifles already on hand? What does he use them for, if not to teach violence?
Jews who have lived peacefully in the suburbs of Paris are now having to move to other parts of the country or head for Israel to escape anti-Semtism. When Alain Benhamou walked into his apartment near Paris in July 2015 and saw the words “dirty Jew” scrawled on the wall, he knew it was time to leave. It was his second such break-in in less than three months and the 71-year-old no longer felt welcome in Bondy, a Parisian suburb he had called home for more than 40 years.
