Anti-Semitic themes found in mainstream British circles

November 13, 2010

The most insidious example used in the report is the Channel Four Dispatches program “Inside Britain’s Israel Lobby” screened last year, in which presenter Peter Oborne said he had not identified any conspiracies while making the program.
“We haven’t found anything even faintly resembling a conspiracy, but we found a worrying lack of transparency, and the influence of a pro-Israel lobby continues to be felt,” Oborne said at the time.
Channel Four’s website alluded to what the report sums up as “shady characters, with financial influence, underhand tactics and treacherous goals.”
This message was repeated, the report shows, in The Guardian’s news story about the program – titled “Pro-Israel lobby group bankrolling Conservatives, film claims.”
The report also highlights how a medieval accusation, claiming that Jews steal children in order to use their blood, was also revived and frequently used last year in accusations that Jews and Israelis steal body parts. The London-based but Iranian-run Press TV revived the blood libel charge, according to the CST document.
One of the Press TV stories begins with the sentence: “An international Jewish conspiracy to kidnap children and harvest their organs is gathering momentum as another shock story divulges Israeli plot to harvest organs from Algerian children.”
British media watchdogs, like Adam Levick of CiF Watch, praised the report for bringing to the surface rampant bias against Jews in daily publications.
“The CST report is a shocking indictment of how so-called progressive news outlets such as The Guardian are mainstreaming the type of anti-Jewish hate speech that was once the province of the far-right,” said Levick, whose organization particularly monitors The Guardian’s “Comment is Free” blog.
CST is the only organization in the UK that collects, analyzes and publishes statistics and incidents relating to anti- Semitism, including an annual Anti-Semitic Incidents Report.
CST’s publishes an annual Anti-Semitic Incidents Report. The 2009 report, published in February, showed a record high number of incidents in one year since records began in 1984.

these media outlets are not underground. the hate is hidden within professional slick graphics and shrouded in pretension of integrity.


Respected Mullah jailed for flashing in the UK

September 23, 2010

(UK) Abrahim Ghait is something of a celebrity amongst Muslims. In fact so much of a superstar is Abraahim that the UK Arabic Society invited him over to the Uk from his native Libya so he could preach at a number of mosques during Ramadan. The problem for the UK Arabic Society was that Mr Ghait was arrested for flashing his nether regions to women and little girls during Ramadan and for doing so, he was jailed for 6 weeks.
Well instead of admitting that inviting Mr Ghait may have been a big mistake. The UK Arabic Society is playing the victim card by saying that;

“There was no way the imam would have committed the acts, and that it would destroy his future and reputation.and believed Ghait had only pleaded guilty in the hope that he would get a non-custodial sentence, which would have allowed him to go home to Libya where he had urgent business.”

His defence came out with:

Ghait had been through a huge culture shock in coming to the UK, and that he was from a very isolated background in the Libyan desert and didn’t really know much about the world and that he had extremely bad piles and was due to have surgery at home.

What is with religious people presuming that a so called holy-man cannot be found guilty of human desires and vices. Which may explain why Mr El Haddad (head of the UK Arabic society )finished off bitching by saying:

“The situation is unacceptable and I don’t believe he did it.He only pleaded guilty because he wasn’t expecting to go to prison, and because of the pressure on him to go back home quickly.There is no way that he would have done something like this. Do you think that a leader of a church would harm its community? It was a park, in the middle of the town, in the middle of the day.He was here leading people in prayer, it was in Ramadan when he was fasting, and he is not supposed to even look at a woman.He is a world-famous imam of a mosque in Libya and has spent 15 years learning the Koran .It is destroying the future of a key person. It is crazy, and I just can’t believe it.”
