Dear Mr Monbiot (@GeorgeMonbiot)

What if Twiggy Garcia had been filled with revengeful hate when he stood behind Tony Blair at a restaurant last week?

What if… I don’t need to spell out the possibilities in gory deal; we all know they were in a steak restaurant.

As I reminded others here – you, George Monbiot, intend to hound Mr Blair until he is either prosecuted or is no longer with us.

You can write all the provisos, rules and opt-outs you like at your Arrest Blair website but you MUST know where this could lead. It IS a “bounty”, after all. Dead or alive, hmm?

So my question is: if some hater in a position to actually attack Mr Blair were able to do so, and admits having been inspired by you and your site, would you bear any responsibility?

I think you would.

What do others think?

    Latest upload of this video follows. Earlier clips mentioned were removed.

    George Galloway threatens the British (56 seconds)

    Retitled –

    George Galloway threatens “10,000 dead bodies”

    [UPDATE: With reference to my next paragraph, found it uploaded again.]

    But don’t panic! Just as I was about to publish this I noticed that the video has now been removed “due to a copyright claim by Adrian Cousins.” So WHO is Mr Cousins? The one who thinks it was fine to upload this and title it “George Galloway threatens the British”? Who is this fool? There is an Adrian Cousins at Facebook – linking to CounterFire. (This is the Counterfire website.) Although Mr Cousins has decided his video with Galloway calling for Death to 10,000 should no longer be viewable, he kindly allows viewers to see this one here.

    The “Galloway Exposed” youtube channel still has the DEATH to 10,000 video. Download it if you can, just in case this upload is removed.

    Whether Galloway’s “dead bodies” are supposed to be those of non-Muslims or Muslims is immaterial. Galloway is threatening the deaths of thousands on the streets of London. This man, insane or not, is inciting racial hatred AND, by his reference to hijabs and beards, religious hatred.

    I have news for him and his cronies.

    We have laws against that. That’s what comes of living in a law-abiding state.

    The name at the top left of this video is Check out who contributes to this site.

    The last think I am ever likely to do – well no, the last thing would be to stand or fall for freedom and democracy – but almost the last thing, would be to vote for the BNP.  I am no racist.

    But an incoming link from a BNP supporting site brought this to my attention.  I know some will criticise even mentioning or linking to such a site. But falling for the divide-and-rule policy of some has its limits, imho. And this video is the limit.

    This video is very, VERY important.

    George Galloway says (my bolding):

    “And lastly to the EDL [English Democracy League], take a look around you,  boys. Take a look around you at this crowd.  If you dare touch a hijab on a Muslim woman’s head[cheers and increasing voluminous bellows from the ranters] if you dare  – if you dare – if you dare turn(?) a hair on the beard of a Muslim man in Tower Hamlets [more cheers from the half-insane ranters]you will have to fight your way through 10,000 dead bodies first. Thank you very much indeed [more cheers from GG’s roused associates and presumably would-be fellow murderers] ??? – [indiscernible, but does not sound like English.]

    Pardon, Galloway? 10,000 dead bodies? Whose?

    The other speaker then says –

    “This is why I believe that we should be brave enough to come and I said to you before that it’s not up to the police to decide when we march, where we march and how we march – [indiscernible]

    Sorry, mate! IT IS UP TO THE POLICE. Get that into your thick skull or get out of this country and rant your insurrection where it’s treated as it deserves to be – Iran, for instance.

    The Islamic Repubic of Iran

    See here (journalist against the Iranian state) and here – (criminals hanged) and here – (hanged for being gay), and here – (hanged for killing her husband after years of abuse). (22 year-old Delara Darabi was executed, May 2009 by Iran and for a crime it is said she didn’t commit.

    She confessed to this crime only to protect her boyfriend, both believing she would not be convicted because at 17  she would have been under age. WHY did they assume that? Iran, above all other so-called democratically elected, so-called governments in this world, has a long, disgraceful record of hanging children for “offences”.

    This, THIS is what Galloway clearly thinks is quite the thing.


    The video at the top opens for only an instant on the profile of a caucasian man. Apart from Galloway, his is the only white face you are likely to spot in this group; the rest are Asian.  Is that man content to be associated with this crowd of extremists, screaming for the MURDER of his own countrymen? Compare this to the video of the One Vote For All gathering on the same day here:


    In the top video here (go and have another quick reminder) at 0.07 seconds into the 56 second video NOTE the NUT banner.

    The NUT is the National Union of Teachers. Of TEACHERS!!! I used to be a member of that organisation, FGS! And now it is flying the flag of those in favour of Sharia Law. Those whose British-born spokesman threatens to kill “10,000” British citizens.


    They have no place in a free society. Except behind bars.

    The poster in the background “Celebrate Our Diversity” is a fig-leaf for Islamist fundamentalist separatism. This is NOT celebrating. This is incitement to kill. CLEARLY. There can be no argument.

    What are the Police going to do about Galloway and his ranting? I suggest –


    His associate in this video should also be charged with insurrection and incitement. He is of the opinion that they do not have to listen to the Police. They do have to listen. As did the One Law For All group on this very day. As did the EDL on that very day – and were arrested, seemingly, for just turning up. My understanding is that in order to demonstrate any group needs to apply for permission to the Police a week or more in advance of the event. If I am right, why were Galloway’s group of Sharia Law fans fanatics permitted to crash the One Law For All  (perfectly peaceful) campaign, MILES away from THIS lot’s original east-end demo?


    One Law For All: Shariah – Muslims Against Crusades

    ‘Muslims Against Crusades’? What crusades? If there had ever been a ‘crusade’ in recent years, and some might say there should have been, this lot would be no more. This is from this group’s channel Call 2 Islam. Peaceful-looking bunch, aren’t they?

    Since the EDL people who turned up at One Law for All’s demo arrived uninvited they were bundled into Police vans because they ‘didn’t have a permit to demonstrate’.


    Did the pro-Sharia law group, those who turned up to counter the legal and permitted ‘One Law for ALL’ group have a permit? It certainly looks as though they, who had earlier demonstrated with Galloway in East London presumably then under police permit,  turned up opposite Downing Street regardless of this little nicety. If they did not have a permit, WHY were they not arrested too?


    If so, you’re right. These people seem to have a thing about the number 10,000. Is it in the koran? A version of feeding the 5,000 –  killing the 10,000?

    Do you remember this idiot – Lord Ahmed?

    He it was who threatened to “mobilise ten thousand Muslims” if Geert Wilders was allowed into Britain. The government succumbed to the threat.  They clamped down on free speech (as long as it came from those who love and support FREE speech!) and prevented Wilders from entering Britain.  Since then Wilders has been highly successful in the Dutch general election. But don’t let that worry you, little jihadist caliphaters, he is also standing trial for inciting against the inciters!! (Trial to resume in October 2010).

    What a stupid, crazily upside-down, self-destructive world.

    Quote from Cranmer here: “Lord Ahmed is not functioning as a Labour peer; he is the self-appointed khalifa of all things Islamic. He is not concerned to protect freedom of expression or freedom of speech, but to stifle debate and ensure that Parliament submits to the Dar Al-Islam.”

    He and TEN thousand others, it would seem.

    More from this site on the pleasant individual “Lord” Ahmed:

    You can report Galloway online to the MET Police here

    Of course we know the Police and the government already know all about last Sunday’s disgraceful events opposite Downing Street. How could they not?  But for some reason –  fear of civil unrest –  they prefer to be intimidated.

    What will the new government the ConDems do about them? CONDEMN them? Yeah, right.

    A REMINDER FOR THE CON/DEM GOVERNMENT (in case Cameron & Clegg failed to notice, like the press)

    Last week I reported on the One Vote For All march in Whitehall – Sharia Law – One Law For ALL demo hi-jacked. Press fail to notice. I mentioned there that this demo had been hijacked by a group of Muslims who just happened to be demonstrating in another part of London earlier in the day. I mentioned then that this second group then crashed the One Vote for All Campaign march which had been, and remained despite screeching, ranting provocation from mad Islamists, perfectly peaceful.

    The press did not cover any of this, not even the peaceful side (One Law For All)


    Crimes can be reported ONLINE here. It took a little bit of digging to find this page, and for a while I wondered if this facility had been deleted.  Telephone numbers are also provided.  Go here to see the numbers you can ring.

    At the MET’S ‘Reporting Crime’ page are provided the usual 999 number if a crime is happening “NOW”. It also says this:

    Non-emergency contact number

    If you wish to contact the Metropolitan Police Service and it is not an emergency please call 0300 123 1212.

    It then links to this information on the non-emergency contact number

    “Unless it’s an emergency, call the Metropolitan Police Service on 0300 123 1212.

    You now only need to know two numbers to contact the Metropolitan Police:

    In an emergency always call 999

    An emergency is when a crime is happening, someone suspected of a crime is nearby, someone is injured, being threatened or in danger.”

    So, let us get this clear, please. Just for those of us who want to inform the Police.

    Is it an emergency or a non-emergency when George Galloway threatens death to 10,000?

    Your guess, like the Police’s and the present government’s, is as good as mine. Just do it this way – online –

    Report Galloway online to the MET Police here

    You might also find this interesting –

    At ‘MET POLICE CAREERS’ Martin Tiplady, Director of Human Resources apologises for the new (ConDem government?) policy.

    “Two to three years” he says,  before new police officers can be recruited.  What? Is that David Cameron’s way of protecting the public from the rabid?

    5 years for jihadist Kanmi but NOT for incitement to kill Blair and Brown

    ‘Man jailed for urging PM killings’

    So said the first report I noticed on this from UKPA. EXCEPT HE WASN’T.
    Despite the headlines at websites (also here – ‘ for plot to kill Blair‘), he was not jailed for urging others to assassinate Tony Blair and Gordon Brown. He was jailed for various other charges after being found guilty of those (other) charges last month.

    The kill Blair & Brown charge was shelved.

    The BBC report (13:58 today) is more accurate. Few others are, online. BBC excerpt:

    Charges, which he denied, of soliciting to kill the ex-PMs were not pursued.

    In May, when Kanmi admitted some charges, the Crown Prosecution Service said it was willing for the counts relating to Mr Brown and Mr Blair to lie on file.


    Ishaq Kanmi was imprisoned for FIVE years today. But NOT for inciting others to assassinate Blair & Brown

    ‘Lying on file’ doesn’t mean the suspect is lying. Good gracious, of course not! Basically it  means the CPS has decided to  “drop” the pursuit of this charge.

    In other words this “urging” to kill named individuals was NOT seen as incitement to violence, or anything all that serious. Or it was not seen as chargeable. Or, most likely, it was not seen as winnable.

    WHY would the courts allow the murder incitement charges to lie on file? The terrorism act clearly says that incitement to kill (even generally) is an offence and chargeable. Is not a more particular targeted threat – to named individuals – even MORE inciteful?

    If it were you or I whose names were on that internet site would we not feel that this man should be charged with inciting others to murder us?


    The reasons for us turning a blind eye to the urging of the murder of politicians are many and complex. They are to do with human rights (not the politicians’ rights, of course, only those of the would-be assassin’s.) They are also to do with the victim/perpetrator argument being turned on its head with the help of the liberal literati, the press and ‘informed opinion’.

    Thus this man’s free speech is free and is his. After all he only incited because he felt his whole religion had been attacked and threatened.  So, even if he had succeeded in inciting others to action, it is likely that the proportionality comparison would have been mooted as the reason in the court of public opinion – the left anti-war press – if not in the real court. And the courts cannot risk upsetting public opinion by finding against this poor inciter victim, now can it?

    Anyway, the possibility of losing one or two politicians in this way is nothing like as bad as pursuing a whole religion, after all. Is it?

    Well, is it?


    So, I put the above free speech/human rights/victimised religion/ proportionality argument to one side. After all he is not on his own in this kind of call.  We are all allowed to call for death to British/western politicians these days, aren’t we? Putting that aside as a given – (sorry but that’s where we are in 2010, thanks to such as the Guardian CiF pages where Free Speech trumps all, unless you’re pro-Israel, of course) – for which other reasons was he not charged with incitement to kill Blair & Brown? Despite the incitement being all over the internet?

    For at least two other reasons –

    It’s political, people.

    One, the public, whose brains have been addled to the extent that they see the perpetrators as victims and the victims as perpetrators. Such widespread “liberal” thinking would mean that if this man had been convicted of the incitement charge, the literati would likely have come out in favour of the would-be assassin rather than the could-have-been-already-dead politicians.

    Two, the Crown Prosecution Service knows when its beaten. Even with the words in black and white (red too if I remember correctly) on the internet, this charge would have unwinnable for the CPS in the long run. Because with the inevitable appeal or two (HR courts being the “2”), this ‘kill PMs’ charge might have compromised ALL the charges, so allowing the man to escape all justice.

    How come, I think I hear you ask again. I’ll tell you in a moment.

    But first, what does the TERRORISM ACT of 2006 say? In Section 1 –

    Encouragement of terrorism

    (1) This section applies to a statement that is likely to be understood by some or all of the members of the public to whom it is published as a direct or indirect encouragement or other inducement to them to the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism or Convention offences.

    (2) A person commits an offence if—

    (a) he publishes a statement to which this section applies or causes another to publish such a statement; and

    (b) at the time he publishes it or causes it to be published, he—

    (i) intends members of the public to be directly or indirectly encouraged or otherwise induced by the statement to commit, prepare or instigate acts of terrorism or Convention offences; or

    (ii) is reckless as to whether members of the public will be directly or indirectly encouraged or otherwise induced by the statement to commit, prepare or instigate such acts or offences.

    That is EXACTLY what this man was originally charged with.

    If you do not accept my points on “addled-brained” public opinion I recognise we do agree on what I describe as the British Denial syndrome on Islamist terrorism in Britain.

    If you do not accept a possible judicial drawback and thus failure because of our courts’ liberal tendencies let me assure you that this situation has already arisen in this country. Yes, it has happened before in our ever-so fair, fair-minded courts.

    It happened when a judge, hearing an appeal, decided that the original jury which had been faced with several charges, may have been confused as to what they were originally trying to convict the man on!  So, in case they were confused, looking at one charge and not another poor innocents, he dismissed the whole case. The man won his appeal.

    This has happened within our judicial system. Melanie Phillips refers to in her book LONDONISTAN. If I find the link I will add it here later.

    This man was not given the opportunity to claim case law and cite confused jurors when it came to an appeal, which it will, as it always does.

    So for the lesser charges of  – collecting or making a record of information likely to be useful to a terrorist and three counts of disseminating terrorist publications – all of which he admitted, he received sentences of five years’ imprisonment for all his offences, apart from one count of dissemination in which he was given a four-year jail term.  All sentences run concurrently.

    Which means he’ll be out in about two years.

    So, of the reports I have found so far, only The BBC’s and the Guardian’s report and headlines are accurate

    But you might note how The Guardian mentions his “miserable childhood”, cited by his defence.  Awwww. Sweetheart. That kind of thing turns a lot of us to threaten to kill Prime Ministers.

    Reuters report with this misleading headline – British Muslim jailed for “kill Blair” threat

    Thu Jun 24, 2010 1:54pm BST

    LONDON (Reuters) – A British-born Muslim who pretended to lead “al Qaeda in Britain” and urged sympathisers to assassinate Tony Blair and Gordon Brown was jailed for five years on Thursday.

    Ishaq Kanmi, 24, wrote on a Jihadi website that the two former prime ministers would be targeted by “martyrdom seekers” if his demands were not met.

    He promoted himself online as Umar Rabie — the leader of “al Qaeda in Britain” — as he composed messages on a public computer at the Central Library in Blackburn, Lancashire.

    Manchester Crown Court heard how the claimed UK cell of al Qaeda was fictitious and that there was no evidence the defendant had any links with the group.

    The trial had also heard how Kanmi was a “lonely young man” who had been bullied at school and who later “wallowed” in extremist material downloaded at his library, the Press Association reported.

    Prosecutors said Kanmi issued a two-month deadline in January 2008 calling for the withdrawal of British troops from Iraq and Afghanistan, together with the release of all Muslim inmates from the high-security Belmarsh prison in London.

    He pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing to professing to belong to al Qaeda and inviting support for it, but denied soliciting the murder of Blair and Brown.

    Kanmi was arrested at Manchester Airport as he waited to board a flight to Finland in August 2008.

    He had three electronic storage devices in his suitcase and was carrying a mobile phone which all contained terrorism-related information which he intended to distribute.

    (Writing by Stefano Ambrogi; Editing by Steve Addison)

    Jihad Watch takes a different angle in its headline – U.K.: Jihadist on trial for calling for death of Tony Blair and Gordon Brown was “lonely” Almost accurate though.  Except for the one little factor – the charge of calling for deaths of Tony Blair and Gordon Brown. That was left on file in May. This man was only found guilty, also in May, of lesser charges.  He was sentenced tody onthese lesser charges.

    As I said, we Brits don’t really want to challenge or even upset anyone who’d like to kill us. After all … well  …they might actually DO it.

    Poor sweethearts.

    Jihad Watch uses a suitably understanding video link to the Big O.  No, not Obama.



    ‘See no jihad. Hear no jihad. Speak no jihad.

    This sums up the Obama administration’s national security assessment regarding our ongoing conflict with global Islamic jihad. Unfortunately for us, it seems they have come down with a severe case of Jihad Denial Syndrome (JDS).

    Americans were tipped off to this when the Pentagon released its report on the Fort Hood jihadist attack. The mountains of evidence, including Nidal Hasan screaming “Allahu Akbar” as he fired away, indisputably revealed that Hasan was motivated by the ideology of jihad.

    Yet the body of the Pentagon report achieves the remarkable feat of avoiding a single mention of “radical Islam,” “jihad” or any similar reference.’

    Lauren Booth – Incitement to Racial Hatred charge (S.5 of the Public Order Act)?

    January 17, 2009

    Comment at end

    17th January, 2009

    Last week this person – Lauren Booth – went beyond the usual ranting and raving of the illiberal Left. Peace campaigners come in all shapes and sizes, and most of them would not dream of inciting racial hatred to further “peace”. But it seems THIS woman does more than dream.  I will confess that this was first brought to my attention by the website of a party I would never support: the racist British Nationalist Party. But in this, they are right to raise it.

    There are two videos worth watching. The one below was in London last Saturday at the rally which ended in a riot at which the police were attacked and a Starbucks windows smashed by rioting “demonstrators”.

    Lauren Booth at the ‘Stop Gaza Massacre Demonstration’, London Saturday 10 January 2009

    Booth says to the crowd, “We are Palestinian.” (You don’t speak for me. Not me, this TONY Blair Supporter. I’m British, and proud of it.)

    She also says, “I am proud to be from Gaza”. What? I thought she was from England.


    But the secret video filmed by BNP members is even more worrying. It’s “SPOT A WOMAN” day, as was the above video. There seems to be but ONE woman present. And that is the sister-in-law of the FREEDOM FIGHTER Tony Blair. Head covered, of course. She says –

    “Israel, you are the fanatics in the Middle East …and you are the criminals that we detest … I tell you, the British government, we are angry and we want Israel OUT of this country”. (She seems to mean MY country, not hers.)

    Watch her and her antics here at the BNP’s site. You will have to scroll down the page. (No sound at the beginning.)

    It was filmed at the ‘Muslims for Gaza’ rally in Corporation Park, Blackburn, on Sunday 11th January 2009, the day following the London rally. Busy little activist, isn’t this Ms Booth? Here she shamelessly uses her relationship to Mr Blair.  Holding a mobile phone she says she is speaking to someone at Tony Blair’s Jerusalem Office; or so she feigns. She says she has a message from the “British people” whilst goading the hugely male & Muslim audience almost into hysteria for the benefit of Mr Blair’s (probably imaginary) assistant. Her message – “SHAME ON YOU.”

    This woman is DANGEROUS. I am no racist nor would I ever support the BNP.  Sadly, unless the government and police DO something about this kind of incitement, VOTING may soon be the last thing on some people’s minds.

    It may not be too far fetched to suggest that this woman is attempting to start her very own intifada.

    Read the report below carefully and ask yourself why you heard no press reports on this. Press censorship? Surely not!? If so, to coin a phrase – shame on them.

    Special in-depth feature by Nick Griffin on the efforts of the far-left to spark a Muslim intifada on our streets.

    Flicking burning matches into boxes of gelignite! That’s the only way to describe the irresponsible antics of the far-left as they use the distant conflict in Gaza as an excuse to wind up young Muslims. Their aim is to spark clashes with the police that would ‘radicalise’ the Muslim community in the hope that they could then be recruited to Marxist revolutionary organisations such as the Socialist Workers Party and Respect.

    Just how frighteningly close these white atheist cranks are to sparking riots that could tear many parts of Britain apart can be judged from the two pieces of video footage accompanying this report.

    The first was filmed outside the Israeli Embassy in London a fortnight ago. It shows graphically the extent to which the police have lost the ability and the will to face down threats and violence from angry Muslims (compare this pathetic retreat with the truncheon-wielding head-cracking of peaceful Countryside Alliance demonstrators outside Parliament).

    The second five minutes of film was shot by an iron-nerved team from BNPtv in Blackburn on Sunday 11th January. As you’ll see the first short section is silent, but still gives a good impression of the scale of the protest.

    Despite – or rather, because of – the size of the demo, and its exclusively Muslim nature, none of the broadcast media or national newspapers carried a single word on the story. The BBC in particular gave extensive air-time to rival pro-Palestinian and pro-Israeli protests in London over the same weekend, and mentioned a left-wing rally in Manchester, but all covered up what was probably the largest Islamic protest march in the UK since the Bradford book-burnings against Salman Rushdie and free speech twenty years ago.

    The main camera crew, which included Burnley BNP Councillor Derek Dawson and former Blackburn BNP Councillor Robin Evans, were threatened with arrest and escorted out of the town by the police. A second back-up crew with an amateur video camera, however, were not picked up by the police and managed to attend the protest rally itself. This was held in Blackburn’s Corporation Park and included a short but inflammatory speech by Tony Blair’s sister-in-law Lauren Booth, which was recorded under very difficult circumstances by our brave volunteers.

    Self-confessed Marxist

    A self-confessed life-long Marxist, Lauren Booth speaks for the far-left front group the so-called Stop the War Coalition. Last year she joined Respect’s George Galloway on a fund-raising stunt for them, which was praised in Socialist Worker.

    Ms Booth addressed the almost totally male Muslim crowd with a large part of her hair and head covered with a woolly hat, and she also pointedly made no reference to her thoroughly unIslamic support for feminism, atheism, abortion on demand and the abolition of the family. She did, however, make a fiery speech attacking Israel, complete with what at present appear to be totally unsubstantiated allegations about the women and children of Gaza being ‘blasted’ with chemical weapons. Making things up as she goes along is nothing new for Ms Booth – last year she visited Gaza and claimed that she was forbidden to leave by Jewish soldiers, even though the checkpoint in question was manned by the Egyptians.

    Addressing the huge and already wound up crowd in Blackburn, she attacked the authorities for making them meet in the park, and called on the Muslim community to bring 40,000 next time and “go to the centre of your city and stay there” until the Government agreed to close down the Israeli Embassy in London.

    “Today we are all Palestinians”, she ranted, “Israel is the nation of hate”. Displaying the coded anti-Semitism which pervades so much of the left, she then used the plural (thus showing she was addressing Jews rather than Israel) “you are the criminals that we detest”.

    “Chemical are weapons raining down on Gaza …. we want Israel out of this country”. Not, note, just the Israeli Embassy. She and her Red-Green alliance would like to go much further than that.

    The near hysterical crowd loved it all of course. Ms Booth had her few minutes of revolutionary glory and then went home to her posh pad in Islington. The event ended, as far as we know, peacefully.

    But the far left are playing a very dangerous game here. They think that their propagandists and ‘spokespeople’ can play on Muslim anger and paranoia, turning it on and off like a tap in a bid for votes, recruits and donations.

    Left sparked Bradford riot

    This is what they were trying to do in Bradford in 2001 when they seized on the empty threat of a National Front march to bring thousands of young Muslims onto the streets, wind them up into a frenzy with wild tales of threatened racist attacks and alleged official indifference to the mythical ‘threat’ to their community.

    Job done, the SWP-run Anti-Nazi League then made their excuses and departed – leaving the angry mob to attack innocent local whites and cause £20 Million-worth of damage in the riot that sparked a wave of unrest, anti-white racist attacks and destruction across northern England.

    Note the SWP posters in this video footage; they’re at it again. Whatever their petty internal differences, the various far-left fractions are united in their desire to bring mayhem to the streets of Britain. Their targets? The police, any institution or business with an Israeli connection, and the British National Party. These people provide the organisation and the manpower for the Labour party’s systematic and repeated efforts to undermine and pervert the democratic process by smearing and harassing the BNP at every election in which we stand.

    Increasingly frantic over the failure of their propaganda offensives to stop our votes rising, the left’s strategists are seeking to incite their foot-soldiers and ethnic minority allies to use violence in a last ditch attempt to stop us. Unfortunately for them, however, the average crowd of middle class student protesters may think they look menacing when they put scarves over their faces, but in truth couldn’t fight their way out of a paper bag. Hence the attraction of trying to recruit young ‘street’ Muslims, who are generally obsessed with martial arts training and weapons.

    What they either don’t realise, or don’t care about, however, is the fact that anti-Kuffar racism and hatred is so strong among the new generation of young Muslims that any trouble that starts as a protest against Israel or the British National Party has the very real potential to become a pogrom against all non-Muslims and the detonator not for a Marxist-style popular uprising but for a Muslim intifada and communal violence on a truly horrific scale

    If the far-left don’t grow up and get responsible, if the police fail to put a stop to their provocations and incitement, and if the liberal-left TV companies don’t temper their nightly one-sided propaganda orgy of dead and injured Palestinian school-children, this could all end in blood as well as tears.

    Lesson from Brixton

    Indeed, it may already be too late to stop – the circumstances were rather different, but we’ve been here before. On 18th January 1981, a reveller who had been thrown out of a party in New Cross, South London, returned and set fire to the house. Thirteen innocent black youngsters were burned to death, in what the (mainly white) far-left set about insisting was a racist attack.

    On 2nd March, 10,000 angry black protesters marched, with about 1,000 nervous white leftists bringing up the rear, from Lewisham to central London. I joined the march about a mile south of the Thames and watched as groups repeatedly broke off to raid building sites and skips to collect bricks and lumps of wood. The police took no action, marching stony-faced to their front, increasingly covered with gobs of spit.

    Only as the angry mob reached Blackfriars Bridge did the police try to stop them going any further, with a three deep police riot shield line blocking the bridge. As the mood grew more and more ugly, every last one of the leftists vanished, leaving me as virtually the only non-uniformed white face to watch as a big lorry carrying a Rasta sound system smashed through the police lines and the huge crowd poured in to the City of London. “Babylon must fall! Murder, murder, Babylon must fall!”

    Fleet Street was quickly strewn with the empty wallets of mugging victims, and jewellers and other shops were later looted in the West End. All the police either could or would do was to keep the mob out of Whitehall and Downing Street. The authorities were beaten and humiliated, the mob swaggered, drunk on power.

    The next morning I gave my eye-witness account to the colleagues with whom in those days I produced the monthly magazine Nationalism Today. I also predicted that the scale of the young black community’s victory over the Metropolitan police was such that it guaranteed an explosion of further violence within a matter of weeks. Having beaten brushed aside the police of the English ‘Babylon’ like bluebottles, it was obvious that the angry black ‘street’ would now apply its new-found confidence by using force to stop the hated police Stop and Search routine. It was only a matter of time before the attempted arrest of one young black lad would draw a crowd and spark serious trouble.

    A few weeks later, this was precisely what happened. The Brixton riots of April 1981 left hundreds of policemen injured, saw enormous damage to looted and firebombed shops and pubs, and sparked off a wave of riots in Afro-Caribbean communities all over England.

    Urban uprising?

    Now the far-left hope to inflame young Muslims into being their shock-troops for an urban uprising that would far outdo the troubles of 1981. If a fresh truce in Gaza removes that particular excuse for mass mayhem, then they will switch to Plan B – using scare-stories and demonstrations about the BNP’s European Election campaign to mobilise and excite the mob, sparking attacks on the police which are all too likely to spill over into attacks on local white residents and Jewish-owned businesses

    In an effort to hamper this cynical exercise in provocation, and to press for the law to be applied equitably, I have today written to the Chief Constable of Lancashire Constabulary making an official complaint against Lauren Booth and her speech, which was clearly likely under the circumstances to incite racial hatred against members of the Jewish community in Britain.

    Time for Action

    If a spokesman for a group on the neo-Nazi fringe had made such a speech to an angry crowd of ten thousand working class English football fans, describing the entire Pakistani community as “criminals” who should be driven from Britain, then he would be in court faster than you can say ‘race hate’. Why should Lauren Booth be allowed to get away with inciting violence just because she is the sister-in-law of Tony Blair and her targets are Jewish?

    Finally, while on the subject of big-mouthed Marxists, if Jo Brand and the BBC programmer responsible for her Saturday Night Live at the Apollo comedy slot think that they can incite people to send ‘poo’ to BNP members without incurring consequences, they’ve got another think coming. We’re organising at a new level now, and part of that involves a determination to ensure that anyone who tries to persecute our people will find that there is a serious price to pay for doing so.

    The following letter has today been emailed and posted to Chief Constable Steve Finnigan at Lancashire Police HQ, Preston.

    17th January 2009

    Dear Chief Constable Finnigan,

    I wish to make a formal allegation of incitement to racial hatred, contrary to S.5 of the Public Order Act, whereby it is an offence to use words intended or, having regards to all the circumstances, likely to incite racial hatred.

    The offence was, I believe, committed by Lauren Booth in the course of her speech to the Muslims for Gaza rally in Corporation Park, Blackburn, on Sunday 11th January 2009, a copy of which may be found on the BNPtv footage posted together with my analysis of the speech and situation on the main news section of on Saturday 17th January.

    As you should already be aware, this rally was attended by many thousands of mainly young Muslim men, already in a high state of anger as a result of media coverage of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict in Gaza. As one of Britain’s leading experts in this particular piece of legislation, I have no doubt whatsoever that there is a prima facie case against Ms Booth. In particular, her use of the plural in the phrase “you are the criminals we detest”, juxtaposed with comments such as “we want Israel out of this country”, (not, please note, “the Israeli Embassy”, but simply “Israel”) are clearly likely – if not intended – to be taken by those present as a green light for hatred, indeed quite possibly actual physical violence, against individual Jews and against Jewish businesses in our High Streets.

    That she intended mischief is indicated by her deliberately setting out to enrage the audience with stories – totally fictitious as far as any news reports coming out of Gaza would suggest – of “chemical weapons” being used by Israel in the targeted attacks on Hamas terrorists which she presents as random attacks aimed at innocent women and children.

    Given the deep-rooted traditional hostility to Jews, simply on account of their being Jews, in the Koran and the Haddith, to make such a speech to a large Muslim audience can only incite hatred against Jews; the legal threshold of ‘likelihood’ cannot fail to be crossed.

    If it should be that a ‘softly softly’ policing policy meant that you did not feel able to station a police video team in the park to capture speeches as evidence in the event (clearly foreseeable under the circumstances) of incitements to violence or racial or religious hatred, then you only need to ask and BNPtv will supply you with the original footage recorded by our camera crew in the park. Although it is shaky it is clearly audible throughout and the speaker can be very clearly identified.

    I am also told that Wayman Bennett of the criminal conspiracy operation ‘Unite Against Fascism’ addressed the same rally and said, among other provocative statements that “Israeli Jews should go back to wherever they came from – New York or wherever it is”. I have not seen this footage myself, but urge that you also investigate this.

    As the Gold Commander during the 1981 Burnley riots, you must have a very good appreciation of the very serious danger involved here, with outside agitators doing their very best to increase tensions in Blackburn. Should the situation in Gaza not be permanently resolved very soon, it is highly likely that Ms Booth’s call for a far larger demonstration in the town will be answered. That being the case, it is vital if the peace is to be maintained and the law upheld that the police force take action now to show that incitement to racial hatred and violence is unacceptable not only if the alleged victims are Pakistani Muslims, but also members of other races and religions.

    I look forward to hearing that you have set in motion the appropriate action very shortly, not least because – as my analysis which accompanies the video makes clear – we do not have much time left in which to damp down the growing hysteria and alienation being produced by agitators such as Ms Booth.

    Yours sincerely
    Nick Griffin

    This person, Lauren Booth, has form on this. After the Lebanon war where some in the Labour party turned on Tony Blair for not speaking out against Israel’s action, she spoke at a rally telling him it was “time to go.”

    Well, he went.

    NOW what’s your excuse, Ms Booth? Anti-semitism?
