“Chairman of a British-based Islamic Human Rights Commission — that has has received more than £1.4 million in charity cash — praised the fatwa on Sir Salman Rushdie less than a year ago,” by Max Aitchison, Mail On Sunday, August 20, 2022:’https://www.jihadwatch.org/2022/08/uk-islamic-charity-with-leader-that-supports-jihadis-and-rushdie-fatwa-gets-1650000-in-government-funds

‘Last weekend, a British Muslim invaded a Texas synagogue and held the rabbi and four members of his flock at gunpoint while demanding the release from prison of a biochemist known as ‘Lady Al Qaeda’. The drama flared briefly across news sites before vanishing from sight. As the Australian Jewish News observes, the assault
…failed to make even the world headlines on the ABC digital media platforms for the 12 hours the stand-off with police was taking place.
Since then, if the ABC’s internal search engine is any guide, there has been only one follow-up. Some stories, it seems, are of little but passing interest. There are terrorists, and then there are those other terrorists, the ones whose motives and religious background are best not mentioned. Diversity, don’t you know, enriches us all, so team-player journalism ignores the sand that grates in the gears of the multiculturalists’ narrative.
Daniel Greenfield, however, indulges his curiosity to report what mainstream media might have done were it actually interested in getting to the nub of a story rather than papering over unfortunate and disconcerting truths. Of Faisal Akram (above), who will never again interrupt Shabbat gatherings thanks to a sharp-shooting Texas SWAT team, he writes:
Back home, the Blackburn Muslim Community page announced that “Faisal Akram has sadly departed from this temporary world” and prayed that Allah “bless him with the highest ranks of Paradise”….
…The town has produced no shortage of Jihadists, including the youngest terrorist in the UK, as well as a number of Jihadis who traveled to join ISIS, an associate of shoe bomber Richard Reid, and a terrorist who played a key role in an Al Qaeda plot that targeted New York and D.C.
Blackburn is one of the most segregated towns in the country and has been described as a “no-go zone”. The area that produced the Temple Terrorist has one of the highest Muslim populations outside of London and some claim that flying the English flag has been effectively outlawed.
The setting couldn’t be any better for the media to whitewash the murderous terrorist with the familiar excuses that he was the victim of failed integration in the United Kingdom. His family, in an even more familiar excuse, is claiming that he “was suffering from mental health issues”.‘https://quadrant.org.au/

‘We’re living in strange times, and if you believe the Covid-19 vaccination programme is working because the authorities on the television tell you that it is, then you must surely find it extremely strange that the UK is in the middle of a third wave in the middle of summer? Especially when you consider that in summer 2020 Covid-19 deaths flat-lined to zero even though a Covid-19 injection was not available.
But the strangeness doesn’t end there, just take a look at the latest Covid-19 Statistical Report released by Public Health Scotland (PHS) on the 8th September 2021.
The report provides an array on data on testing, quarantining, vaccinations, cases, hospitalisations, and deaths but it doesn’t get very interesting until you read Table 15 which covers the number of Covid-19 positive cases by week and vaccination status.
Interesting because it shows that the majority of confirmed cases are now among the vaccinated population. In the most recent week from 28th August to 3rd September 2021 the report shows that there were 20,744 confirmed cases among the unvaccinated population, who are more likely to be tested for the simple reason they have not been vaccinated.
But it also shows that there were 5,508 confirmed cases among the partly vaccinated population, and 16,810 cases among the fully vaccinated population – two populations who are least likely to be tested due to be being vaccinated.
This means that between 28th August and 3rd September there were 22,318 cases among the vaccinated population – almost 2,000 more than the unvaccinated population.’https://theexpose.uk/2021/09/08/exclusive-80-percent-of-covid-19-deaths-in-august-were-people-who-had-been-vaccinated/
‘Government data on Covid deaths and tests here: https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/detai… Smith and O’Brien need to click on “Deaths” and then “Data” followed by scrolling down through until they reach Aug 2020.’
Would they lie to us? ‘They told you the vaccines might not stop infection or transmission but they were still very effective against serious illness and death.
89% of Britons over 16 have received at least one shot. 80% are fully vaccinated.
This is the chart:
Something is very, very wrong.
God save the Queen for if God doesn’t the UK will end up with Charles and that’s not good!
‘While we have the Queen, she is a taproot into the ancient culture of the English-speaking peoples, a thousand years deep in monarchy and two thousand deep in faith; when she goes, the deracination will be swift.‘
Her successor, Charles ‘…does not want to be defender of ‘the faith’ but just ‘faith’, including no doubt a heartfelt eco-pantheism. Who knows what bits of the ancient coronation will be reworked and rewoked to honour global Gaia. He has already conscripted another solemn occasion to that cause: on Remembrance Day last year, our future monarch put on a poppy and spoke to the world about… the Great Reset!
This nakedly globalist, quasi-socialist scheme harnesses global panic about Covid and climate change and calls for revolution. The Great Reset is championed by all the usual suspects from the United Nations, the World Economic Forum, the mega corporations as well as celebrities like Prince Charles and Pope Francis.
Under the Great Reset, we are told by the official material, ‘You’ll own nothing. And you’ll be happy’. Further channelling Marx, it declares, ‘Capitalism as we know it, is dead’. And in a sideswipe at the bourgeois farmers of Australia, it tells us, ‘You will eat much less meat. An occasional treat, not a staple, for the good of the environment.’
Antonio Guterres, secretary-general of the United Nations and former socialist prime minister of Portugal, confirms that the UN’s manufactured panic over global warming is central to this globalist power grab. He says that ‘advancing the transition to net zero emissions’ is an essential ‘element of the Great Reset’.
Next on the video, up pops Prince Charles with poppy in place, warning us, ‘We are literally at the last hour and there is real urgency for action…. We need a shift in our economic model that places Nature, and our shift to net zero, at the heart of how we operate.’
‘Literally at the last hour’? This from the Prince of Whale-sized exaggerations who told us in 2009 that we have ‘just 96 months left to save the world’ from ‘irretrievable climate and ecosystem collapse’. When that excitable hyperbole expired in 2017, His Royal Highness issued a shorter deadline ‘to keep climate change to survivable levels’. That new prophecy of doom expired in January just past.
If Charles were to become King, will he be merely the latest in a long line of monarchs who seek to impose economic burdens and restrictive laws on his subjects? That may not work out so well, given the first King Charles was beheaded in 1649 for attempting ‘to overthrow the rights and liberties of the people’. As Daniel Hannan writes, ‘The story of the English-speaking peoples is the story of how they imposed their will upon their rulers’. His splendid book, How we invented freedom, traces Anglo-Saxon people-power from the taming of King Æthelred in the 11th century to the barons bringing King John to heel in the 13th, through the Civil War (Charles I beheaded) and Glorious Revolution (James II exiled) and finally the American revolutionaries defying George III’s taxes in the 18th.
If our Charles were to be just another bad king in this line of bad kings, beheading is probably not an option but exile surely is.
I propose banishment to a Pacific island where he can watch the shoreline failing to submerge or to Antarctica to watch the sea-ice failing to decline or to the Arctic to watch the polar bears failing to perish.
If only some more of Prince Philip’s rugged good sense – including climate scepticism – had rubbed off on his son! Well might we say, ‘God save the Queen’, because if Charles doesn’t desist from politically divisive posturing, nothing will save the monarchy.’https://www.spectator.com.au/2021/04/the-prince-of-wails-will-doom-us-all/
Even though Sleepy Joe and the other person have not yet won the WH Hong Kong’s legislature has been taken over by Beijing and if SJ and the other person do win the WH Taiwan is next.
News has it that ‘Hong Kong’s legislature has today moved one step closer to becoming a local branch of the Chinese Communist Party, after the disqualification of four of the most moderate, mainstream pro-democracy legislators resulted in the resignation en masse of every single pro-democracy legislator in protest.
For the first time since 1997 the body now has no pro-democracy voices, marking yet another nail in the coffin of ‘one country, two systems.’
The four legislators who were ousted by Beijing – Alvin Yeung, Kwok Ka-ki, Dennis Kwok and Kenneth Leung – are hardly radical pro-independence activists. As lawyers and accountants, for years they have represented the pro-democracy establishment, working within the system to protect the rule of law, due process and autonomy Hong Kong was promised in the Sino-British Joint Declaration.
The decision by the rest of the pro-democracy legislators to resign in protest at their ousting is courageous and right. It is a tragedy it has come to this, but they clearly could not continue to work in a legislature that is rapidly becoming a mouthpiece for the Chinese regime. In taking this dramatic step today, they have not walked out or abandoned their duties as representatives of the people – it is Beijing that has forced them out.
The removal of the four pro-democracy lawmakers took place after the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress in Beijing ruled that:
‘lawmakers should be disqualified if they support Hong Kong independence, refuse to acknowledge China’s sovereignty, ask foreign forces to interfere in the city’s affairs or in other ways threaten national security.’
This arbitrary and vaguely-worded edict represents a grave violation of the city’s autonomy and Basic Law (the territory’s mini-constitution). In the same way that Beijing imposed the national security law on Hong Kong in July, this decree directly threatens due process and the rule of law in Hong Kong.
Every legislator who has ever talked to a foreign parliamentarian, journalist or activist could fall foul of Beijing’s new measure, which bans legislators from asking ‘foreign forces to interfere’ – a truly ridiculous situation. And now that there is no opposition in the legislature, judicial independence will likely be next in Beijing’s sights.
A week ago Xi Jinping’s regime published its 14th five-year plan, in which it proposes ‘comprehensive jurisdiction’ over Hong Kong by 2025. In other words, direct rule. The five-year plan emphasises the need to ‘implement the central government’s comprehensive jurisdiction over the two [cities], as well as their legal systems and enforcement mechanisms.’ In the end it only took Beijing a week to further the implementation process with the removal of Hong Kong’s parliamentarians.
The British government must lead the international community in a robust outcry against this move. Not only has Beijing torn up its international agreement with Britain – an act which calls into question its reliability when it comes to any other treaty it has signed – but it now directly threatens the viability of Hong Kong as an international financial and trading centre. Now that we are seeing lawyers and accountants being kicked out of the legislature at Beijing’s instruction today, what is the future for the city’s lawyers, accountants, and professionals? Those who uphold transparency or challenge corruption could simply disappear, as they do in the mainland.
In response, the Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab should establish an international group of like-minded allies to coordinate a global response to the emasculation of Hong Kong. That should include the imposition of targeted sanctions against officials in the Chinese and Hong Kong governments for breaches of international law. It should also include efforts at the United Nations, to establish a mechanism to monitor and report on human rights violations. And the UK should encourage others to offer a lifeboat rescue package, to offer those who now wish to flee Hong Kong a place of sanctuary.
Britain should lead, but the response should be multilateral. The free world must stand together. This is no longer only about Hong Kong – it is about freedom itself. A global response is more likely to have some effect on Beijing and a failure to stand together will mean Beijing will try to pick us off one by one.
Britain’s response to the imposition of the national security law in July was generous and bold. The offer of a pathway to citizenship to British National Overseas (BNO) status holders from Hong Kong was truly historic and very welcome. Now is the time for a similarly bold response. Weakness or silence will only further embolden Beijing, leaving Taiwan ever more vulnerable and bringing the threats to our own freedom and security ever closer to home.’https://www.spectator.com.au/2020/11/china-has-taken-control-of-hong-kongs-legislature/?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=WORL%20%2020201113%20%20AL&utm_content=WORL%20%2020201113%20%20AL+CID_748d00d97f98225c9dba1303a6cca01e&utm_source=CampaignMonitor_Australia&utm_term=China%20has%20taken%20control%20of%20Hong%20Kongs%20legislature
This is an email I received from Family Voice describing what is typical of the Left when ‘SA Liberal MLC Michelle Lensink has upset many South Australians by requiring her controversial abortion bill to be fully debated on Remembrance Day, 11 November.
Australians have long revered Remembrance Day as a solemn time to remember those who have died in battle during wartime. Debating, on this sacred day, a bill to allow the killing of unborn babies up to birth is unbelievably insensitive.
RSL State President Cheryl Cates said that planning to debate proposed abortion laws on Remembrance Day is “absolutely inappropriate”.
The practice of remembering members of the armed forces who have died in the line of duty was inaugurated by King George V in 1919. He called for all activity to stop at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month, for 2 minutes’ silence to be observed. The silence would remind people throughout the British Empire of the silence that fell on the battlefields of Europe when the hostilities of the First World War ended when armistice with Germany was signed.
King George V on the first Remembrance Day, 11 November 1919
Initially called Armistice Day, it was renamed Remembrance Day after the Second World War. It is celebrated today in numerous Commonwealth countries, including Canada, India, New Zealand and South Africa, as well as the United Kingdom and Australia. Similar observances are held in numerous other countries including France, Belgium, Denmark, Israel, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Russia and the United States.
In Poland it became Independence Day, when the Polish people again became self-governing after 123 years of occupation by Prussia, Austria and Russia. Speaking in November 1918 of the challenges ahead, Polish Marshal Józef Piłsudski said, “only by making a joint effort can we decide on to what extent we will fortify our freedom, and how strongly we will stand on our own two feet”.
The Poles remember at 11 am on 11 November – calling it Independence Day
King George V also spoke of freedom in a press statement released from the Palace on 7 November 1919. He said (in part):
Tuesday next, 11 November, is the first anniversary of the armistice, which stayed the world-wide carnage of the four preceding years, and marked the victory of right and freedom.
I believe that my people in every part of the Empire fervently wish to perpetuate the memory of that great deliverance and of those who laid down their lives to achieve it.
To afford an opportunity for the universal expression of this feeling it is my desire and hope that at the hour when the Armistice came into force, the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, there may be for the brief space of two minutes a complete suspension of all our normal activities.
During that time, except in the rare cases where this may be impracticable, all work, all sound, and all locomotion should cease, so that, in perfect stillness, the thoughts of everyone may be concentrated on reverent remembrance of the glorious dead.
Red poppies grow wild on the WW1 battlefields
We should remember tomorrow that the freedoms we enjoy in Australia are in part due to the men and women who have laid down their lives in sacrifice.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.‘
