 Appeasing Islamic Fascism
The UAF is endorsed by, and operates in cooperation with, the Muslim Council of Britain.In response to perceived ‘negative’ attitudes towards Islam, the secretary-general of the Muslim Council of Britain (Mohammad Abdul Bari)is reported to have threatened: “
If that demonisation continues, then Britain will have to deal with two million Muslim terrorists – 700,000 in London
. This, presumably, is the basis on which ‘respect’ is to be gained.Perhaps the UAF need to consider the following report: “
Chief among these is the Muslim Council of Britain, whose leadership hasestablished sympathies for the Jamaat-i-Islami in Pakistan and Bangladesh. Both the Brotherhood and the Jamaat believe in the creation of an Islamic state and the establishment of Sharia law
It should also be noted that the rise of the Muslim Council of Britain (under IqbalSacranie) can be traced to the ‘Satanic Verses’ affair, and the support given to the book-burning and the raising of a
for the murder of the author Salman Rushdie. In 1989 Iqbal Sacranie said “
death was perhaps too easy
” for the writer
.The Chairman of the UAF is Ken Livingstone, former Mayor of London. It is worth recalling Mr. Livingstone’s previous willingness toentertain members of Sinn Fein at the height of the murderous bombings in London by the IRA. What should we therefore conclude, in thelight of the ‘terrorism’ comments by Mohammad Abdul Bari (above) and the Rushdie fatwa, with the keenness with which the UAF seeksMCB endorsement and collaborative support for its hate mongering activities?From the 7
July 2004 the Greater London Authority (City Hall) was the venue for the annual session of the ‘European Council forFatwa and Research’, headed by
Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi
. On the 12
July 2004 Dr Yusuf al-Qaradawi also spoke at the ‘Assembly forthe Protection of the Hijab’ conference – during which Mr. Livingstone also issued a personal invitation to Dr al-Qaradawi to attend theEuropean Social Forum (ESF) event planned for October. It is interesting that Sheikh al-Qaradawi’s visit should have been so robustlydefended by London Mayor Ken Livingstone, given comments credited to Sheikh al-Qaradawi such as: “
O God, protect them and show themthe right path. O, God, destroy the usurper Jews, the vile Crusaders, and infidels
In response to bitter criticisms of his visit, the GLA issued a lengthy justification in which Ken Livingstone proclaimed: “
As Mayor of London, I regard it as my responsibility to welcome a leader of any great religion, such as Dr. al-Qaradawi. I would welcome any leader of any other great world religion if similar standing, notwithstanding the obvious fact that we disagree on particular issues
.” In the ‘analysis’that followed the GLA dismissed all the criticisms and allegations laid against Dr. al-Qaradawi.
Unfortunately for Mr. Livingstone a rebuttal of the GLA document was soon to appear in the public domain (in February 2005). Thisprovided the evidence that Dr. Yusuf al-Qaradawi,
widely regarded as the Muslim Brotherhood's spiritual head
, supports: the murder of people who have turned away from Islam (apostates); female genital mutilation (FGM); that a husband must compel his wife to wear thehijab; domestic violence in certain circumstances; targeting Israeli civilians; and suicide bombing (including by women).
The self-serving UAF cannot acknowledge the Islamic dimension of both contemporary fascism and contemporary terrorism sincethis would compromise the particular, anti-white (British, indigenous, Christian) form of its racist political ideology.
The most recent terrorism outrage in the UK was an attempt to explode nail-bombs in the centre of Exeter, East Devon. The Exeter nail-bomber was the Muslim convert and Plymouth student ‘Nicky’ Reilly. Reilly, a radicalised Islamist, was a friend of the President of thePlymouth University Islamic Society
– a student very active in promoting the UAF within the University (he seconded the motion toaffiliate the University Student Union to the UAF). The UAF have, perhaps not surprisingly, kept very quiet about this.
 A Totalitarian Agenda
It was the UAF who organised the demonstrations against ballerina Simone Clarke. Her ‘offence’ (apart from belonging to a political partyof which the UAF disapproves) was to express her opposition to mass immigration. An opinion that the UAF clearly believes that, if expressed, should result in severe punishment. For this the UAF sought to ‘punish’ Ms. Clarke by taking away her livelihood and effectivelyruining her life.In an extreme left web site
Bill Hayes, the UAF treasurer, described the British National Party as “
a pernicious virus
” and that the UAF arefully engaged in “
activities designed to stamp out the BNP
” – an interesting choice of words. We also find Sabby Dhalu, joint secretary of the UAF, declaring that the BNP “
is not a legitimate party
” presumably on the basis that membership should be considered as an illegitimate(criminal) activity. This is reminiscent of the policies and activities of the totalitarian regimes (communist and fascist) of 1930s Europe.To gain an insight into the UAF’s core ideological beliefs it is useful to consider their roots and political affiliations. The UAF is affiliated tothe Anti-Nazi League (ANL) and shares much of the same membership – the ANL’s National Organiser is Weyman Bennett who is alsoUAF joint secretary. Weyman Bennett is a high-ranking member of the Socialist Workers Party and is on the National Executive of theSocialist Alliance.The UAF is a Marxist group. However it is worth recalling that two notable 20
Century philosophers, SirKarl Popper and Nobel Prize winner Freidrich von Hayek, saw communism/Marxism and fascism/Nazismas essentially two sides of the same political coinage.
The UAF (and other ‘far left’ groups) wish to do toBritain what Hitler could not do in 1940
. The ambition of groups that are behind the UAF (such as theSWP) is the removal of sovereignty (the de-nationalisation) of the UK, accompanied by the application of ethnocide against the indigenous population. The picture opposite is taken from the UAF website and showsa UAF rally in Derby in 2008. Both the Socialist Workers Party banners and the ‘Hammer and Sickle’ flagof Marxism are prominently on display. It is estimated that 94.5million men, women and children have beenkilled as a result of crimes carried out in the name of Communist and Marxist ideology since 1917
.The political agenda is therefore clearly totalitarian – of the curtailment of free speech and of the right todissent. Any behaviour that threatens the political orthodoxy (multiculturalism, diversity, denationalisation)is to be considered a crime. On the 19
May 2002, for example, Julie Waterson (then ANL National Organiser) declared: “
We have to forget about freedom of speech
” in reference to those groups the ANL wished to have banned
. The ANL earned a reputation for violentconfrontation, drawing the comment from Sir Paul Condon in October 1993 (he was then the Commissioner of the Metropolitan PoliceService) that: “
Again in London we have seen a cowardly mob of extremists turning up … to cause disorder, violence and damage
”.More recently the ‘on-line’ newspaper of the Socialist Workers Party published an article by Anindya Bhattacharyya calling for “
illegal and unconstitutional means
” and “
” to stop British National Party members going about their lawful business (of contactswith the public, engaging in debate, of election campaigning).
The Marxist SWP brazenly promotes Nazi-style political thuggery
.Therefore we should not be too surprised to find the UAF (whose senior members and principal activists are drawn from the SWP) adoptingthese same Fascistic tactics.
