Muslim Anger. Because Police tried to stop a Muslim (well he did work for the infidels) being Beheaded5 Comments Published by jonz on Wednesday, January 31, 2007 at 8:33 PM.
'Anger and cynicism'
Police have cordoned off roads around Jackson Road and Foxton Road, in Alum Rock, and Poplar Road and Stratford Road, in Sparkhill.
The BBC's Phil Mackie said there had been some anger and cynicism among locals who had witnessed previous terror raids in the area without anyone being charged.
And? Who gives a fuck? The "locals" who want Sharia law? Any decent societal response would be in utter shock and disgust at the alleged plot. This isn't a fucking communist or totalitarian country whereby the authorities just make things up - FFS
Baswant Kant, who lives in Stratford Road, near the junction with Poplar Road, said about 55 police officers "turned up in white vans" in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
"They went into shops and restaurants along the road - a lot of people got arrested," he said.
Saqib Hussain, of Sparkhill, said he had visited the raided book shop many times and "had never seen any suspicions of terrorist activity".
Mohamed Barber told BBC News his cousin was one of the men arrested in Alum Rock.
"We can vouch for him he is innocent. He doesn't even have time to go to Friday prayers - that's how busy he is," he added.
If any of those arrested turn out to be innocent, this should be made clearAyub Pervaz, mosque president
Abdul Ghaffoor, a regular shopper at the general store, said he had never heard politics being discussed in the shop.
Leaders at the Alum Rock Islamic Centre, the main mosque in the area, said the community was shocked at events, but urged calm and appealed to people to co-operate with the police investigation.
Ayub Pervaz, the mosque's president, said: "If people have broken the law they should be brought to justice.
"But we also appeal for no trial by media. If any of those arrested turn out to be innocent, this should be made clear."
Update: Terror arrests on their doorstep
Note: Absolutley no words or accounts from the BBC from the intended victim's family or from the British public in general. Victimhood oozing from the pages.
The family of the Palestinian sucide bomber, who bravely blew up three inncoent civilians in a bakery in Israel, are proud of their son for killing civilians.
"The whole family was very happy when it heard that Muhammad is the hero who carried out the attack," said Naim Saqsaq, the brother of Muhammad Saqsaq, who carried out the suicide attack in Eilat that killed three people.What a guy. So brave... Daring.
The council is to replace it with a Genocide Memorial Day in June. This is in line with the policy of the Muslim Council of Britain, which continues to boycott HMD and is asking for a Genocide Day, which will also mark "the ongoing genocide and human rights abuses of Palestinians" by Israelis.
Oh fuck off you delusional fucks. There's no fucking Palestinian genocide. If you really gave a shit about "genocide" you would be seeking to reel in your brethen in Sudan who are systematically trying to wipe out the blacks in Darfur.
The council decision was made in consultation with the town's Interfaith Council.
Interfaith - euch. MAJOR cringe alert.
But Rabbi Joseph Lever of United Synagogue who has participated in the Bolton event for around three years was not consulted on the decision. He said: "I mourn the fact that the Holocaust Memorial Day event will not take place in Bolton this year."
Louis Rapaport, president of the Jewish Representative Council of Greater Manchester, was equally disappointed that the Jewish community was not consulted.
Interfaith Council huh? Would that be an interfaith council with only Muslim members?
He said: "Bolton, alone of all the local authorities in our area, is not having an HMD event which is a government recommendation." He added: "There may not be many Jews in Bolton but the day is supposed to have an educational message to the whole community.
That educational message to Muslims in Bolton:
"Nazi germanys systematic killing of 6 million Jews is not important enough to merit a specific commemoration, and that actually the Israelis are trying to kill all Palestinians. Down with Israel."
Great educational message, pricks. In places like Bolton, Jews are FOUR times more likely to be attacked than Muslims. (who's doing the attacking huh? -the highest level of attacks on Jews are in highly Muslim populated areas)
"I can't help feeling the decision was influenced by Bolton's large Muslim community."
No surely not? Not local authorities in the UK cotowing to the prejudices of certain distasteful elements in the Muslim community?!
Holocaust educator David Arnold said: "It is more than unfortunate that Bolton has seen fit to trivialise the remembrance of the Shoah."
Mr Arnold regretted the intrusion of "politics" into the issue.
The politics in this case would be holocaust denial and Muslim anti-semitism.
Anyway, well, I am a bit busy, and looking for new directions in life, and shit. I will be back, I promise.

Of course it takes a University study before it can be said out loud in media publications.
White working-class boys are under-performing badly but they do not get the grants immigrant groups receive
White boys from poor backgrounds are falling further behind their black and Asian classmates in exams, official figures have revealed.
The breakdown of the 2006 GCSE results has fuelled concerns, already voiced by the Conservative party and by teachers’ unions, that a lack of financial support for these pupils could boost racist groups such as the British National Party.
The figures come as research by Manchester university confirms that poor white pupils are losing out in the battle for funding. The Manchester academics conducted a detailed case study in an unnamed, deprived inner city, which received a “disproportionate” level of funding to tackle inequality. Money was being targeted at pupils with English as an additional language, but “white learners from highly disadvantaged backgrounds were reportedly often overlooked”, they said.
Well they seem to be doing a pretty good job of it, as they have in Iraq, Lebanon, Gaza, West Bank.. and today Somalia.
US Somali air strikes 'kill many'
Witnesses told the BBC Somali service that an area near the town of Afmadow was being bombed on Tuesday.
"My 4-year-old boy was killed in the strike," Mohamed Mahmud Burale told the AP news agency from the area.
Yet Islamists kill and maim pretty much indiscriminately, use civilians as shields and this is rarely mentioned at all. But this is the US after all, the real terrorists in all this.
