    Ban Blair-Baiting


    2nd October, 2007


    Mr Brown & Mr Cameron – ARE YOU LISTENING?

    Last night Panorama had another go at telling us what many of us KNOW, including the previous prime minister, and what many of us choose to ignore, including the present prime minister.

    That Hizb-ut-Tahrir is quietly brainwashing susceptible youth to their caliphate aim of world domination, by fair means or foul. And their nerve centre is here in London.

    It’s a FACT! So don’t call me a scaremonger. I’m angry, not scared.

    The young man in the programme last evening made me MORE than angry with the written press – AGAIN – for their refusal to tell the full story. The BBC, to its credit, is not hiding from this unpalatable situation. It has recently told us the stories of several young men who are past members of “soft terrorist” organisations. I describe them as “soft” because they use subterfuge to feign a run-of-the-mill political party. And they insist that they will impose a worldwide caliphate, where modern democracies are destroyed, society is returned to the dark ages, and opposing religions are banned. By “argument”, is their stated course of action, not violence.

    Yet they will resort to violence, as their interpretation of their Holy book describes – when the time is right.

    Now, on a personal level there are one or two politicians I wouldn’t mind “stringing up” for other reasons, as those who follow my blog will know. BUT, coming from me that’s a good old British figure of speech; no more than that.

    If these maniacs are allowed to propagate their hatred, encouraging others subtly to take violent action and insisting that they are “muslim” first, British second, our politicians and then the rest of us ARE due for some such fate. It may not be this year or for a decade or more, but it will come.

    When over 50% of the population are muslim, (even if 95% of those do NOT share that ambition), the trigger is cocked on the firing gun for sharia law. Then, let’s see if we are bothered about civil unrest and civil liberties.

    It was only after last summer when Tony Blair was “encouraged” to declare his leaving date, that I did enough research to realise how badly we have been served in recent years.

    There is little doubt that when Blair, after 7/7 in 2005, moved to proscribe HuT, he was dissuaded by naysayers who argued that a failure in the courts would be a victory for HuT and other terrorists. Advice it seems from the police, courts, such as Liberty (don’t mention Shami Chakrabarti’s name to ME!) and perhaps, even from within his own cabinet.

    But SO WHAT if Hut had won a publicity victory? It would have been pyrrhic when their organisation was put under keener scrutiny.

    That failure would have at least raised the problem in the minds of the sleeping populace.

    The clash of British legislation and EU rights was, reportedly a problem. If so, WHY did the government not change the law or opt out of the relevant section of the Human Rights Act?

    We should know that many others in Europe and around the world manage somehow to proscribe HuT. And yet THIS country is known as the beating heart of this worldwide force. YES, this country.

    In the last year or so of his term, Blair and Reid DID attempt to raise the problem. They were ignored and their arguments rejected by the liberal intelligentsia and the old left of Labour, who Brown has to keep sweet.

    These press fools – ‘feral’ is too mild a term for them – are an abomination, and could be threatening our whole future. I don’t expect any clear thinking from old labourites.

    But from my viewpoint, Brown bears as much responsibility as anyone for this negligence. Perhaps much more than anyone. Fearing that he would personally turn out to be a lot less popular than Blair, yet wishing to secure his own mandate, he seems to have judged that the whole issue should be buttoned, at least until AFTER this impending election. After all, Labour relies heavily on the inner city Muslim vote. And with the help of the written press, terrorist fronts like HuT, have an easy task, spreading their propaganda of “muslim discrimination”.

    ALL RUBBISH, of course, and any sensible British Muslim, as compared to “Islamist Briton” KNOWS this.

    We are wrong to have been cowed by the press, the courts, the Police, EU legislation, fear of civil unrest. This is OUR country and WE need to wake up.

    ORIGINAL POST follows

    For how much longer are we going to ignore the fact that we have a major and growing problem with Islamist terrorism? Many organisations are banned, but that in itself will not protect us from their brainwashing and actions. They are known to easily start up again under other names.

    And , folks, these organisations DID NOT spring up with Tony Blair and George Bush’s Iraq or Afghanistan invasions.

    Watch Tony Blair on Terror & Civil Rights – Shortly Before He Left Office

    He went down fighting for OUR freedoms

    You’d better believe that we are under threat AND that Muslims have greater rights here than in any Muslim land. If you don’t, please do as I did and search around the internet. I was as surprised as anyone to discover that over 40 of the 46 groups banned under the 2000 Terrorism Act, are Islamist groups based round the idea of a caliphate, or/and the destruction of Israel & Jews, or/and the putting to death of homosexuals or /and honour killing.And a group the government was recommended to back down from banning – Hizb ut-Tahrir – was formed in the same year that Tony Blair was born. Hardly, then HIS fault that we are now reaping the fruit of our own carelessness.It’s time to put a stop to the nonsense of turning a blind eye, NOW!BANNED: As from the UK Government’s Home Office page

    These terrorist organisations are currently proscribed under UK legislation, and therefore outlawed in the UK.

    • 46 international terrorist organisations are proscribed under the Terrorism Act 2000

    • Of these, two organisations are proscribed under powers introduced in the Terrorism Act 2006, as glorifying terrorism

    • 14 organisations in Northern Ireland are proscribed under previous legislation

    In 1953, the year Tony Blair was born, Hitzb ut-Tahrir was founded.

    It now has over one million members worldwide. It is BANNED IN 40 COUNTRIES WORLDWIDE, BUT NOT IN THE UK OR AUSTRALIA. It is highly active in the UK.

    After the 7 July 2005 London bombings, Tony Blair announced the government’s intention to ban the group under new legislation. So, WHY, even with a request for a ban from Pakistan’s General Musharraf, was a British Prime Minister persuaded away from banning this organisation?

    • The burden of proof of their ‘violent intent’ insufficient to stand up in a court of law.
    • Warnings from police, intelligence chiefs, and civil liberties groups that it is a non-violent group, and driving it underground could backfire.

    And this despite their stated hatred of Jews and homosexuals and their primitive approach to women and girls, entirely unsuited to British or western culture. And let us never forget that they intend, and indeed are ordered to take over the government of ANY country in which they reside and in which the Muslim population reaches 50% +1. A simple majority gives us all Sharia law and the end of western democracy as we know it.

    Presumably our parliamentarians would be put to the sword if they refused to submit?

    And this WITHOUT THE CONSENT of the average British law-abiding Muslim. They, like us, would not be consulted.

    Politically correct? Today I am proud to be politically incorrect. Where, oh where are yesterday’s feminists and the REAL defenders of the rights of the individual and democracy itself?

    Hizb ut-Tahrir survived a proposed ban in the UK after clearance from the intelligence services and police.[74]. After the 7 July 2005 London bombings Tony Blair announced the British government‘s intention to ban the organization under new legislation.[82] Hizb ut-Tahrir spokesman Imran Waheed said, “The move is a perilous route that is harming community relations and could lead to civil unrest comparable to that which affected the black community.”[83] According to The Independent Blair “shelved the ban after warnings from police, intelligence chiefs, and civil liberties groups that it is a non-violent group, and driving it underground could backfire.”[84] According an alleged leaked government report produced for Tony Blair, quoted in The Guardian, [85] the prime minister was advised that HT did “not directly advocate violence. Indeed membership or sympathy with such an organization does not in any way presuppose a move towards terrorism.” The document added that young people attracted to terrorism may shy away from Hizb ut-Tahrir because they do not espouse violence, and would be seen as only engaged in “pointless pontification and debate.” However, the Guardian went on to report that the “document does say membership of groups like Hizb ut-Tahrir ‘may indicate … the possibility of a few of its members being open to gradual consideration of far more extremist doctrine’.” In November 2005, the Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo) opposed the government’s proposal to ban the party, arguing that it knew of no intelligence to justify proscribing HT.[32]

    On December 24, 2006 an article in The Observer revealed that the government had shelved their plans to ban the organisation because there was a home office opinion that a legal ban would not stick. It also confirmed that the request to ban had come to prime minister Tony Blair from General Musharraf, Pakistan’s military ruler, himself often the political target of Hizb ut-tahrir campaigns[33].

    Mohammed M. Ramadan, a journalist and announcer at the BBC’s Arabic section in London, was a member of Hizb ut-Tahrir and opposed to the regime of Colonel Qadhafi of Libya. He was assassinated on 11 April 1980 by Libyan operatives outside London’s Regents Park Mosque.[34]

    Hizb ut Tahrir in Britain emphasized the importance of Muslims choosing loyalty to their religion above loyalty to any nation. In a promotional video shown on BBC News a party representative asked

    I think Muslims in this country need to take a long, hard look at themselves and decide what is their identity. Are they British or are they Muslim? I am a Muslim. Where I live, is irrelevant. [86]

    Hizb ut-Tahrir (Arabic: حزب التحرير; English: Party of Liberation) is an international, Sunni, pan-Islamist vanguard[2] political party whose goal is to unite all Muslim countries in a unitary Islamic state or caliphate, ruled by Islamic law and headed by an elected head of state (caliph).[3]

    Taqiuddin al-Nabhani, a Sufi Islamic scholar and appeals court judge (Qadi)[4] from Jerusalem, founded the organization in 1953.

    The party promotes “an elaborate and detailed program for instituting an Islamist state”[5] which will “establish the laws of the Islamic Shariah and to carry the Da’wah of Islam to the world.” [6] It believes this “comprehensive solution” will provide “sincere leadership that cares for and protects its citizens from the colonial foreign policies of Bush and Blair” and bring an end to “US interventions, energy inspired wars, puppet (Muslim) governments and western values forced by the barrel of a gun.” [7] HT is strongly anti-Zionist and calls for “the dismantling of the illegal entity of Israel,” whose leadership “has never concealed its hatred of Muslims and have been calling for the destruction of Muslims since the very beginning.”[8] HT believes a caliphate “will provide stability and security to all the people of the region, Muslims and Non-Muslims” [9], although note that among other things, Shariah law justifies the murder of lesbians and gay men.

    Hizb ut-Tahrir has spread its message to more than 40 countries, and is estimated to have about one million members.[1] Hizb ut-Tahrir is banned, but still active in, several Arab and Central Asian countries, is very active in the west, particularly in the United Kingdom where a ban has been proposed due to its alleged anti-semitism which the group denies and a former home secretary said was reviewed twice with insufficient evidence to substantiate a ban.

      […] Hizb ut-Tahrir “non violent”? The group that Tony Blair tried to ban after the 7/7 bombings, and was prevented by the little civil righters, the courts and the Police?
