The following article is from the ever expert Jihadwatch.
I think it needs to be considered in the same sense as our other articles which deal with the hatred of Jews as expressed by the Fascist “leftists” such as the Irish Palestine Solidarity Campaign.
Also in relation to the lies against Pamela Geller and the English Defence League, see harry’s Place for the latest in this.
There is no doubt at all that these so called “Lefties” are really joining with the Capitalist media and the Capitalist State Machine and it must be acknowledged their ability to tell lies knows no bounds.
Very often these lies are lies of omission. They edit the News. They edit reality. They chose what their listeners will hear.
This was the story over and over again in relation to what was happening in Yugoslavia in the 1990s. It was the exact same. The similarity is amazing.
The English Defence League is a very progressive movement for one simple reason. If British workers are going to do anything in the world that is developing around therm then they first must feel themselves as being proud to be English.
If they are not proud to be English then they will be steamrollered by political correctness.
That is the strength of the EDL and people like Ed Carroll, an Irish name actually, so his background must be Irish. people like Carroll obviously could not care a shit what the Media writes about them. That is the beginning of the English socialist revolution, because until there are people like that then you can do nothing in life.
Please read the following. it is most illuminating:
This is an example of the Leftist/Jihadist Alliance, or perhaps of the cluelessness of the Left, or perhaps of its indifference to the freedom of speech that Islamic supremacists wish so ardently to extinguish. Take your pick. “Stewart-Colbert ‘sanity’ rally draws thousands,” by Hope Yen and Calvin Woodward for the Associated Press, October 30 (thanks to Weasel Zippers):
WASHINGTON — In the shadow of the Capitol and the election, comedians Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert entertained a huge throng Saturday at a “sanity” rally poking fun at the nation’s ill-tempered politics, fear-mongers and doomsayers. […]Ozzy Osbourne and Yusuf Islam, formerly known as Cat Stevens, engaged in something of a battle of the bands as the heavy-metal rocker barged in on the folkie’s hit, “Peace Train,” in a mock clash of music and cultures….
“Cat Stevens Gives Support To Call for Death of Rushdie,” by Craig R. Whitney in the New York Times, May 23, 1989:
TONDON [sic], May 22 — The musician known as Cat Stevens said in a British television program to be broadcast next week that rather than go to a demonstration to burn an effigy of the author Salman Rushdie, ”I would have hoped that it’d be the real thing.”The singer, who adopted the name Yusuf Islam when he converted to Islam, made the remark during a panel discussion of British reactions to Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini’s call for Mr. Rushdie to be killed for allegedly blaspheming Islam in his best-selling novel ”The Satanic Verses.” He also said that if Mr. Rushdie turned up at his doorstep looking for help, ”I might ring somebody who might do more damage to him than he would like.”
”I’d try to phone the Ayatollah Khomeini and tell him exactly where this man is,” said Mr. Islam, who watched a preview of the program today and said in an interview that he stood by his comments….
Yes, now he denies having said it. But considering that he has been an ardent orthodox believer ever since his conversion, and that all the schools of Islamic jurisprudence do mandate a death penalty for blasphemy, I find his denials unconvincing.
I have previously linked to the video of Yusuf Islam saying what he now denies, but this morning I found this notice where it had once been at YouTube: “This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Yusuf Islam.” Interestingly enough, however, old Joe Islam doesn’t seem troubled by YouTube postings trampling on the copyright for his jahiliyya hippie songs.
