    Syria, Gaza and the Criminalisation of Islam (OP)


    Salaam

    Event: Syria, Gaza and the Criminalisation of Islam

    Recent events from the Middle East have placed the Muslim community in Britain in the public eye once more with their every word and action coming under microscopic scrutiny by the media and politicians. This is only the latest chapter in an ideological attack that has been ongoing for significantly longer.

    Whereas the attacks on Islamic concepts of war, political governance and the unity of Muslim lands are nothing new, they have now increased on an unprecedented scale in the wake of the rise of ISIS and its declaration of a Caliphate. The matter is not about supporting or opposing the version of a Caliphate as demonstrated by ISIS but rather the criminalisation of Islamic political thought and ideology. The concepts of jihad, shariah and khilafah are not the exclusive possession of ISIS but core Islamic doctrines subscribed to by almost one third's of the world's population. It is telling that the government's treatment of ISIS is similar to its treatment of Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood, Hizb-ut Tahrir, and the Taliban, despite the enormous differences of belief and methodology between the groups.

    The Islamophobic nature of the criminalisation of those who believe in fighting in Syria against Assad is underlined by the lack of concern for British Jews who fight in the Israeli Occupation Forces, particularly at times where they are engaged in war crimes and other atrocities, such as the recent attack on Gaza.

    On the flips side, Muslims who wish to aid their brothers and sisters through the provision of humanitarian aid via aid convoys are having their homes raided, being harassed by the security services and are effectively being accused of engaging in terrorism. Charities are having their bank accounts closed without explanation and are coming under investigation by the Charity Commission simply for being involved in crisis zones like Gaza and Syria. Witch-hunts such as the Trojan Horse hoax and the mass hysteria over issues of the niqab, halal food and conservative Muslim values demonstrate that the criminalisation is spreading beyond Middle Eastern politics. Individuals and organisations within the Muslim community who have been speaking out against these policies are now under attack. They have had their organisation, business and bank accounts arbitrarily closed. Even their children's bank accounts have been closed. They are maligned in the media as terrorist sympathisers, extremists and jihadists. Some have even been imprisoned.

    The common element across all these cases is that those targeted cared for the oppressed and for those who are suffering. They have been criminalised because they cared.

    Join CAGE at this series of events around the country to unite the Muslim communities against this criminalisation of our faith, our beliefs, our mosques and organisations, and our leaders. The following regional events will take place with the large conference taking place on 20 September at the Waterlily in London.

    Blurb


    In this eye-opening episode of the Blood Brothers Podcast, Dilly Hussain speaks with the director of advocacy group Prevent Watch, Dr Laila Aitlhadj, about the UK government’s controversial counterterrorism ‘Prevent’ strategy.

    Topics of conversation include:

    - Chronology of the Prevent strategy (Labour
    to Conservative).

    - Are there any benefits to Prevent?

    - CTS Act 2015 and Prevent’s statutory footing.

    - Does Prevent disproportionately target Islam
    and Muslims?

    - Muslim children in schools and safeguarding. Advice to teachers and social workers.

    - Why scrap Prevent? Why can't there be an alternative that is managed by the Muslim community?

    Re: Syria, Gaza and the Criminalisation of Islam

    Many people convert (or pretend) to convert to other religions (depending on where they live). For example, Stephen Colbert pretends to be a "white Catholic" even though he has dark eyes, a swarthy complexion and looks like a caricature from a Nazi propaganda poster. And many newsreaders and reporters from Aljoozeera masquerade themselves as "Muslims" yet they look much more phenotypically Jewish rather than Arab, Iranian or any other West Asian racial group. Therefore if all THIS is possible, wouldn't Palestinians be able to (at least pretend) to convert to Judaism in order to avoid conflict there? Or for Jews, is it just as much (if not more) a racial issue than it is a religious issue?

    Only a paranoid conspiracy theorist would say there's an 'agenda' behind this.



    Credit to the sister to standing up to this nonsense. Again another example of the British establishments attempt to lead Muslims away from their deen. They don't even bother to disguise their intentions.

    Lots of comment Ill post them later if time permits. In the meantime.







    Video response



    A statement of the obvious.



    Schools response.



    The purpose of government mandated 'tolerance'.









    Good friends are so hard to find these days.



    More generally

    And it gets worse. Now there attempting to blacklist children potentially ruining the future prospects.













    The end goal



    You could say the British establishment want to go back to the good old days. When lesser people knew how to behave towards their betters.

    Heres the full conversation. 'Modern' education in the UK.



    Wood Green Academy invites a self-proclaimed Gay 'Muslim' speaker Khakan Qureshi to preach to students that being gay and Muslim is okay. This is an extended audio recording from the session.

    Following this incident, students have been; placed in isolation, reported to prevent and be threatened to stay quiet or face further consequences.


    Anonymous & Annoyed

    Further update on WGA for parents and community following yesterday's update.

    10. The Academy has received over 800 complaint by both parents and from the community. However, due to loopholes within their complaints policy majority of these complaints won't be responded to.

    11. The school has not allowed parents to generally engage with the school on this subject referring them to thier complaints policy (which is flawed).

    12. Mr Topham (Head Teacher) has been in regular contact with Mufti Muhid regarding the incident and ongoing issues surrounding the incident. The Academy say, that students have agreed and understood why the teacher shouted, and accepted isolation as a punishment. This clearly shows manipulation.

    13. A 6th form student who is a Hafiz/Imam that initially challenged the preaching was put in isolation for 2 days on the grounds of bad behaviour when clearly there is no concern or evidence of behaviour.

    14. A number of students have been reported by the Academy to Prevent and we will inshallah signpost to organisations who can support.

    15. Students have been pressured systematiclly by the Academy to keep quite on this incident or face consequences. This has scared many parents/pupils from speaking up.

    16. Further support will be given to the Students by both CAGE and Prevent Watch along with UMO (Union of masjid) MEND, IRU and wider community.

    17. The DfE have been informed who will investigate this matter along with the Director of Sandwell Children's Safeguarding and Education. All 3 local councillors of Wednesbury are in consultation and will support the community.

    18. We as the Muslim ummah have a duty to protect the Aqeedah and Imaan of our children but also their safety and welfare. We will be seeking legal advice and welcome support from any professional legal advisor with experience dealing with the education sector on Safeguarding.

    20. A meeting will be held for parents of WGA organised in conjunction with all the masjids in Walsall, Darlaston and Wednesbury to support families and provide guidance. Sunday 20th November 2022 after Zuhr @ 1:30pm. VENUE: MET Wednesbury, Walsall Street, WS109EL.

    21. The support received locally, across the UK and beyond so far has been humbling and overwhelming. Everyone stands shoulder to shoulder with you the student and you the parents/guardian's. You are not alone, you are the most important people in this matter and we stand together in support. Many organisations, councillors, professionals and Masjids across the UK have offered support for parents and pupils.

    22. If any student or parents are feeling distressed or victimised, please come forward as help and support is here for you.

    23. To ensure the voice of our children and their parents are heard, we will support parents with their complaint and collate these which will be sent directly to DfE, sandwell education board and WGA.


    Some sobering responses. However pessimism is not warranted. Bad situations don't last forever.
