The BBC has offered to pay £30,000 and apologise to the Muslim Council of Britain after airing claims that it encourages the killing of British troops.
The Corporation caved in after a panellist on the Question Time TV programme accused the country’s most influential Muslim organisation of failing to condemn attacks on soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The broadcaster was threatened with legal action over comments by former Daily Telegraph editor Charles Moore during a debate about Islamic protests which marred a soldiers’ homecoming parade in Luton. Read the rest of this entry »
In recent weeks it appears that the Muslim world has been intensifying its campaign of slander and lies designed to damage Israel, demoralise her supporters and to appeal to the right-brain logic of the liberal left, who analyse little, but protest and emote a lot. In turn, these opinions are the ones most often given prominence in Universities and colleges and ink and airtime in the mainstream media; largely due to the traditional alliance of the professions that service the Media and Education to the left.
We thought we’d take a closer look at this in an attempt to help balance things in our own small way. There are other fine sites such as Honest Reporting, who tirelessly carry out this task in the blogosphere, but it seems that in the world of non- Muslim Big Media, Education and International Politics, Israel has hardly a friend in the world.

The surreal, ‘Through-the-Looking-Glass’ phenomenon of Muslim victimhood begins to take hold in one of Europe’s unlikeliest locations, the birthplace of Democracy:
ATHENS – Greek riot police fired tear gas to disperse hundreds of Muslims who pelted them with sticks and stones outside parliament on Friday during protests over what they said was the destruction of a Koran by a Greek policeman.
The Muslim Union, representing thousands of immigrants in Athens, said it had filed a lawsuit against the unidentified policeman.
“Police told us they need more time for the internal investigation so we went ahead and filed a suit,” union president Naim Elghandour told Reuters.
Deputy Public Order Minister Christos Markogiannakis said that the incident was isolated and that it didn’t justify the immigrants’ violent outburst. Read the rest of this entry »
ISLAMABAD: Gross human rights violation against the people of Palestine and Kashmir, and use of state force by Israel and India is generating despair and militancy among the youth, the Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) said on Friday. Following discussions during a roundtable conference held on February 3, the CII stressed that Muslim and Western countries must revisit their policies and future strategies to achieve peace.
The CII on Friday suggested recommendations for a way forward on the widening gap between Islam and the West, which would be sent to ambassadors of countries who participated in the February roundtable discussions. The ambassadors would forward the recommendations to their respective governments. Read the rest of this entry »
The BBC has never met an Islamist it didn’t like. It is now pulling out all the stops to assist the British Government and assorted greedy bankers to promote ‘Shariah Banking’ to the rest of us. The article below from the BBC is just the latest in a long history of shilling for Islam. As usual from ‘Auntie’, not one negative word is committed to print.
Experts in Islamic finance believe their way of doing business has shielded them from the global credit crisis. But how does it differ from conventional Western finance?
A former executive director of the International Monetary Fund, Dr Abbas Mirakhor, says wider Islamic economics relies on God’s guidance, handed down almost 1,400 years ago. Read the rest of this entry »
