Do what you're told lads. We know you quit the club but we're still looking out for the interests of your Islamic overlords. You can have your freedom of speech back if and when they see fit to let you have it.




FREE SPEECH CRACKDOWN: EU orders British press NOT to reveal when terrorists are Muslims

MEDDLING Brussels has said the British press should not report when terrorists are Muslims in a slew of demands to the Government to crack down on the media.

KATIE MANSFIELD
Wed, Oct 5, 2016

A report from the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) found there was an increase in hate speech and racist violence in the UK from 2009 to March 2016.

Blaming the press, ECRI Chair Christian Ahlund, said: “It is no coincidence that racist violence is on the rise in the UK at the same time as we see worrying examples of intolerance and hate speech in the newspapers, online and even among politicians.”

The report makes a whopping 23 recommendations to Theresa May’s Government for changes to criminal law, the freedom of the press, crime reporting and equality law.

And despite the report not analysing coverage of the historic Brexit vote, Mr Ahlund saw fit to comment on the UK's decision to leave the EU.

In a sweeping statement, he said: “The Brexit referendum seems to have led to a further rise in ‘anti-foreigner’ sentiment, making it even more important that the British authorities take the steps outlined in our report as a matter of priority.”

The report lays into the British press and urges the government to “give more rigorous training” to reporters.

In the 83-page report, the Commission said: “ECRI considers that, in light of the fact that Muslims are increasingly under the spotlight as a result of recent ISIS-related terrorist acts around the world, fuelling prejudice against Muslims shows a reckless disregard, not only for the dignity of the great majority of Muslims in the United Kingdom, but also for their safety.

“In this context, it draws attention to a recent study by Teeside University suggesting that where the media stress the Muslim background of perpetrators of terrorist acts, and devote significant coverage to it, the violent backlash against Muslims is likely to be greater than in cases where the perpetrators’ motivation is downplayed or rejected in favour of alternative explanations.”

Despite the creation of the Independent Press Standards Organisation (IPSO) in 2014 as an independent regulator for newspapers and magazines, the “ECRI strongly recommends that the authorities find a way to establish an independent press regulator according to the recommendations set out in the Leveson Report. It recommends more rigorous training for journalists to ensure better compliance with ethical standards.”

But as Britain prepares to leave the crumbling bloc, the Government waded in to defend freedom of expression.

In a written statement to the ECRI, the Government said: “The Government is committed to a free and open press and does not interfere with what the press does and does not publish, as long as the press abides by the law.”

ECRI is a human rights body of the Council of Europe, composed of independent experts, which monitors problems of racism, xenophobia, antisemitism, intolerance and racial discrimination.

The group writes reports on every member state every five years and says the documents are “analyses based on a great deal of information gathered from a wide variety of sources.

ECRI visited the UK in November 2015 as it gathered evidence for the report.

In a statement, ECRI said: “ECRI welcomed, among other things, the entry into force of the Equality Act 2010 and the generally strong legislation against racism and racial discrimination in the country, as well as the government’s new hate crime action plan and substantial efforts to promote LGBT rights in the UK which have led to a significant change in attitudes.

“At the same time, the commission noted considerable intolerant political discourse in the UK, particularly focusing on immigration. It said that hate speech continues to be a serious problem in tabloid newspapers, and that online hate speech targeting Muslims in particular has soared since 2013.”

The BREXIT vote empowered the racists, Frenchman...but it is nothing to what would spread across the USA following a The Donald J Trump victory in November...but you know this already, and it's exactly why you have your fingers crossed so tightly for that miracle to happen.  ;)

Good to see that your understanding of what actually constitutes EU made law hasn't advanced any, though. No 'divine revelations,' obviously.  8)

You're as ignorant on the topic of EU lawmaking as you are Catholic teaching.

Explain this (or rather make up some shit and swear blind that it's 100% true) in terms of centralized EU Lawmaking :

Quote
WARSAW, Poland — Polish women are declaring victory in a dramatic showdown that pitted them against an anti-abortion group and the conservative government this week. Three days after the women donned black, boycotted work and staged giant street protests, lawmakers on Thursday voted overwhelming against a complete ban on abortion — a proposal they had supported just two weeks earlier.

The victory merely maintains the status quo, which is one of the most restrictive abortion laws in Europe, but feminists hope they have gained the momentum to attack that next.

Agnieszka Graff, a prominent feminist commentator, said she and other feminists have struggled in vain for years to reach younger Polish women, and that this was the first time she has seen them mobilized in huge numbers.

"The feeling on the street was revolutionary. Women were angry but they were also elated at seeing how many of us there were. The black clothes created this secret-but-open signal that connected strangers on the street," Graff said.

While the women protested to defend the current law, she believes there is a good chance the events might have the paradoxical result of creating "a whole generation of pro-choice women."

Members of the ruling Law and Justice party voted two weeks ago to consider the proposal — brought to parliament by an anti-abortion group — sending it to a parliamentary commission for further consideration. At the same time, they voted to refuse to consider a separate proposal to liberalize the law.

In a complete reversal, lawmakers voted 352-58 on Thursday to reject the proposal. Law and Justice leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski warned lawmakers that further restrictions risked bringing about the "exact opposite effect."

Whether the women activists are able to maintain their momentum still remains to be seen — sometimes revolutions peter out in the long, hard slog of bringing social change.

But certainly abortion is a matter of widespread debate in a way that it hasn't been since 1993, when the current law took force after difficult negotiations between religious and secular Poles. Often referred to as a "compromise," the law bans abortion in most cases, but does make exceptions in cases of rape or incest, when the woman's life is in danger or the fetus is badly damaged.

In practice, though, many doctors are declared conscientious objectors who refuse to perform even legal abortions. Polish women seeking abortions — those who can afford it — typically get them in Germany or other neighboring countries, or order abortion pills online.

The proposal for further tightening the law came from a citizens' initiative that gathered some 450,000 signatures in this nation of 38 million. While supported by some conservative Catholics, it was highly unpopular with most Poles, with people balking at the idea that a teenage rape victim should be forced to have her baby, or that a woman whose health was badly compromised would be forced to carry to term. The proposal also called for prison terms of up to five years for women who sought abortions. The only case in which a doctor could intervene in a woman's pregnancy would be if the woman were dying and required an emergency intervention to save her life.

With abortion already illegal in most cases, many women said what frightened them the most in the proposal was that it could have led doctors to be afraid to perform prenatal tests or that women who suffered miscarriages could fall under criminal suspicion.

That is what prompted Karolina Lignar-Paczocha, 37, to don black on Monday, and — after dropping her 2-year-old daughter off at nursery school — join other women at a protest in front of the ruling party headquarters in Warsaw.

"I had the very bitter experience of having a miscarriage a few times and it's horrible to think a woman who suffers that would be questioned and fall under suspicion," said Lignar-Paczocha, a sociologist. "I would never want my daughter to face something like this."

Even worse, she said, would be the pressure a tougher law could have put on doctors to withhold prenatal tests like amniocentesis, which can detect birth defects including Down Syndrome. The proposal called for prison terms for doctors whose actions could result in abortions, and many feared that doctors would not want to administer such a test, which in itself carries a small risk of miscarriage, and whose results prompt some women to seek abortions.

What she wasn't fighting for was a more liberal abortion law, saying that she was at peace with the current compromise.

That law marks a huge change from the communist era, when abortions were easily available and cheap. In the 1960s and early 1970s, when abortions were mostly banned in Sweden, Swedish women would even make the trip across the Iron Curtain into Poland for abortions.

The fact that today it is Polish women who cross in the other direction was an irony noted during an emotional debate Thursday evening in the European Parliament on the situation of women in Poland.

The law of1993 was part of a broader moral backlash in this mostly Catholic country against the "godless communism" that the nation had only recently shaken off.

Only time will tell if the tide of history is turning yet again.

Almost 400 ISIS jihadis trained in Iraq and Syria are now at large on Britain's streets... as it's revealed just 14 fighters who have returned to the UK have been jailed

-- Shock figure is far lower than government Ministers previously claimed
-- Experts said they could use skills honed on battlefield to plot atrocities
--Ministers admitted just 14 ex-fighters convicted, after claiming it was 54


MARTIN BECKFORD
8 October 2016

Just 14 battle-hardened ISIS fighters who returned to Britain after waging war in Syria have been jailed, the Government has admitted.

The shock figure is far lower than Ministers previously claimed and means almost 400 jihadis trained in Syria and Iraq are at large on Britain’s streets.

Experts told The Mail on Sunday they could use the deadly skills with automatic weapons and bombs that they honed on the battlefield to plot atrocities such as the Paris and Brussels attacks in the UK, massacring hundreds.

Figures slipped out in Parliament reveal that the Home Office believes 850 Britons have travelled to fight for the Islamic State terror group and although many have been killed by drone strikes and in battle, about 400 have sneaked back into the UK.

Any of them could be prosecuted as it is a crime to attend terrorist training camps and also to be a member of a banned group such as ISIS.

But Ministers admit that only 14 people who have fought for Islamic State have been convicted, despite mistakenly claiming the number was 54 earlier this year.

Last night, critics urged Home Secretary Amber Rudd to give more money to the Border Force so it can catch terrorists as they sneak back into the country, as well as ensuring that police and MI5 have enough officers to track down those already here.

Labour MP Khalid Mahmood, who believes thousands of Britons have travelled to Syria and Iraq, said: ‘It is a tiny number who have been prosecuted and it’s absurd to say this is any form of success.

‘If they know who they are, they should be prosecuted but the police and security services don’t have the resources to do that.’

Professor Anthony Glees, Director of the Centre for Security and Intelligence Studies at the University of Buckingham, told The Mail on Sunday that the ‘minuscule’ number of prosecutions was ‘very disturbing’.

‘These people have been trained to be killers and people will think it beggars belief [that they haven’t been prosecuted]. What message are we sending out to the world?

‘If you go out to join a regime like so-called Islamic State, you forfeit your right to come back.’

Former Security Minister Lord West of Spithead said: ‘We know that people who have been abroad and radicalised are extremely dangerous.

'Clearly we need to be able to keep a handle on that and make sure they are properly monitored. If we’re not doing that, we are letting the public down.’

Among the hundreds of ISIS veterans at large in the UK is Maarg Kahsay, a student who fled to Syria while awaiting trial for rape.

He spent up to two months in IS territory as a fighter in 2014 but then returned home and, as this newspaper revealed in the summer, is free to roam the streets of London and live in a council flat.

Another jihadi, Gianluca Tomaselli, is working as a parking attendant at an NHS hospital in London after spending up to a year fighting in Syria.

The revelation that only 14 returnees have been convicted was quietly made in a written answer given to the House of Lords.

Ministers had claimed in May that 54 jihadis had been successfully prosecuted – but last month admitted this larger figure wrongly included dozens who had been fundraising for terrorism or attempting to reach the war zone.

In the new statement, Home Office Minister Baroness Williams of Trafford said: ‘Data from the Crown Prosecution Service shows that they have successfully prosecuted ten cases involving 14 defendants who have returned to the UK and are suspected of having fought in Syria and/or Iraq.’

She added: ‘All those who return from engaging in the conflict in Syria and Iraq can expect to be subject to investigation to determine if they have committed criminal offences abroad or represent a threat to our national security.’

Police and MI5 attempt to contact all those who return from the war zone to work out how dangerous they are.

Some will be left alone if they only went to experience life in the so-called Islamic State or to deliver humanitarian aid, but others will be put under surveillance to see if they form terror cells or start to plan attacks.

Other returnees will be referred to NHS mental health services or the Channel deradicalisation programme if it is felt they can be turned away from extremism.

Among the dangerous returnees who have been locked up is Imran Khawaja, who tried to sneak back into Britain undetected by faking his own death.

The West Londoner was caught at Dover and jailed for 12 years in February last year.

Labour’s former policing spokesman Jack Dromey MP said: ‘Britain faces the most serious terrorist threat for a generation. We need to stop jihadis going to the Middle East and we need to be confident that when people return they are under proper surveillance.’

The only 'thugs' I'm concerned about are those intent on side-stepping the constitutional sovereignty of the UK's democratically elected parliament, Frenchie.

I keep trying to explain these things to you but you continue to refuse to take note.  :-*

Be sure to let me know as soon as my country actually votes to leave the EU and on what terms, huh?  ;)

'Thousands of pounds in British benefits used to FUND ISIS and terror cells' expert claims
ISLAMIC terrorists are being funded by hundreds of thousands of pounds in British benefits, a former independent reviewer of terrorism legislation has claimed.

CHARLIE BAYLISS
Dec 7, 2016

The accusations come after a Birmingham man was convicted of giving Mohammed Abrini – the man believed to be the mastermind behind the Paris and Brussels attacks which killed 162 innocent civilians – £3,000 to fund terrorist activities.

The Government has been under intense scrutiny to conduct an inquiry to establish the full extent of benefit fraud linked to jihadist causes as counter-terror experts claim some British money has been used to pay for ISIS weapons.

Lord Carlile of Berriew told The Times: “Several hundred thousand pounds in small remittances have been used to fund terrorism in one way or another".

He added: “[Such activity] has increased during the rise of ISIS. Certainly the Government should ensure that there is more triage available when housing benefits recipients are known to have gone to another country.”

Belgian-born Zakaria Boufassil, 26, moved to Birmingham and claimed British housing and child benefits and transferred the money to suspected terrorist Abrini, who travelled from Syria to Britain to pick up the money.

Abrini was reportedly captured on CCTV following the Brussels Zaventem airport suicide bombing attack.

Nearly £11,000 was funnelled into the account of Anouar Haddouchi, another Belgian living in Britain who also claimed benefits despite mostly living in Saudi Arabia.

Birmingham city council apologised for their blunder of paying nearly £6,000 to Haddouchi and Boufassil’s account – even though they were no longer living in the area.

Mohammed Ali Ahmed, who was being tracked by MI5, helped Boufassil hand over the cash having impersonated Haddouchi to gain access to his bank account.

Boufassil and Ahmen were both found guilty at Kingston Crown Court, London, of engaging in conduct in preparation of acts of terrorism.

A Department for Work and Pensions spokesman said: “People who support acts of terror will be prosecuted.

"There are strict rules in place that prevent people taking advantage of our benefit system, and to protect taxpayers money from abuse. We investigate all allegations of abuse of the benefit

Why wasn't foreign killer turned away at the UK border? Afghan who beheaded Dutch woman is allowed into Britain... where he assaulted a Gatwick staff member and two police officers with a HAMMER

-Convicted murderer Jamshid Piruz was allowed to enter the UK unchallenged

-In the Netherlands he murdered his female tenant by cutting off her head

-As a permanent Dutch resident, he was allowed to travel freely across the EU

-Admitted attack on PC Jessica Chick and PC Stewart Young, in January 7, 2016

Ian Drury
5 January 2017

A convicted murderer from Holland was able to walk through Britain’s porous borders without any checks and went on to attack two police officers with a claw-hammer.

Afghan-born Jamshid Piruz was allowed to enter the UK unchallenged despite being sentenced to 12 years in jail for slaughtering his female tenant in cold-blood after watching a Taliban beheading video.

Fury erupted after it emerged that the jobless 34-year-old was the latest in a string of foreign criminals to commit horrific offences in Britain after exploiting EU free movement rules.

MPs condemned the shocking lack of checks on offenders from the EU which left gaping holes in UK border controls.

European countries have no obligation to alert the UK about convictions of murderers or sex offenders, meaning many are able to travel to the UK unhindered.

Outraged critics blasted the embattled Home Office for allowing the scandal, by failing to ensure the authorities were notified about EU convicts before they set foot on our shores.

Politicians have called for Home Secretary Amber Rudd to introduce a tougher US-style warning system to flag up whether any traveller has a conviction as they attempt to enter Britain.

Failure to control the country’s borders – and the number of serious criminals arriving here – was a major reason why millions of people voted for Britain to leave the Brussels bloc last June.

Piruz, who was a permanent Dutch resident, will be sentenced on Friday after pleading guilty to an appalling hammer attack on PC Jessica Chick and PC Stewart Young, of Sussex Police, on January 7 last year.

PC Young was taken to hospital with head injuries but later recovered.

The officers were later praised in Parliament by ministers for their bravery.

Piruz had been in the UK a matter of days when he launched the frenzied assault on the officers as they investigated a burglary in Crawley, West Sussex.

Days earlier he had assaulted a member of staff at Gatwick Airport – but was released onto the streets by local magistrates.

Piruz got into Britain despite being a convicted murderer in Holland. In June 2006, he murdered his Chinese female tenant by cutting off her head at a house in Almere, a city close to Amsterdam.

Court documents in Holland said he was ‘inspired by Taliban movies in which beheadings were seen’.
.
The files said he locked his victim in her room, snatched her mobile phone, then cut her throat.

They said he acted ‘intentionally and with premeditation’.

Rejecting his plea of insanity, Dutch judges concluded: ‘The killing of the victim was not the result of an instantaneous violent emotion, but a decision to do so.’

Piruz was convicted of murder in August 2007 and sentenced to 12 years’ behind bars.

He was released in 2014, after serving seven years. As a permanent Dutch resident, the killer was allowed to travel freely across the EU.

Last night WED Tory MP Henry Smith, who represents Crawley, said: ‘The country has got to have tougher border controls. Clearly, being a member of the EU did not protect us on this occasion.

‘A very dangerous individual was allowed to travel here without us having prior knowledge that he’d committed murder in the Netherlands.

‘It is staggering that someone could assault staff at Gatwick and then a couple of days later attack two police officers.

‘Why was the information that he was a violent offender not available to us from our EU partners?

‘This is an appalling example of the kind of people who are getting into the country undetected.’

Piruz pleaded guilty at Hove to two counts of attempting to cause grievous bodily harm with intent, burglary and affray.

Two counts of attempted burglary and one of threatening with an offensive weapon will lie on file.

Simon Blackford, defending, said there was a ‘long gap’ between the murder and the latest offences.

He said: ‘This offence was committed at a time of stress for my client. He was in a foreign country. He seems to have been vulnerable. He seems to have been hallucinating.


‘He was very confused by the vehicles driving on a different side of the road than he was used to.’

Politicians have called for Home Secretary Amber Rudd to introduce a tougher US-style warning system to flag up whether any traveller has a conviction

When EU nationals arrive at the border, their passport details are checked against a ‘watchlist’ of suspected terrorists and foreign criminals compiled by the border agency.

But unless an offender is high profile, is known to have committed crimes in several countries, or is on the Interpol wanted list, the system is unlikely to be aware of their previous convictions – leaving a gaping hole in our border controls.

Except in the most extreme circumstances, Brussels does not force member states to share information on known criminals who might be planning to travel.

France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Poland flag up potential dangermen to the UK so they can be put on a watchlist and turned away at the port or airport.

But if countries do not warn the UK that a dangerous offender is on the way – and some do not even keep information of convictions for their own internal use – there is little we can do to stop them slipping through the net.

Even if a new arrival does have a known conviction, they cannot automatically be picked up and refused entry.

Normally, a person can be excluded from the UK only if they pose ‘a genuine, present and sufficiently serious threat’ to society and the public.

This is an appalling example of the kind of people who are getting into the country undetected.

This means that it is not enough for an EU citizen to have a serious criminal conviction – if it is some time in the past, the UK may fall foul of Brussels directives if they refuse to allow that person into the country.

In a bid to tighten up Britain’s borders, the Government has finally negotiated access to the Second Generation Schengen Information System, known as ‘SIS II’, which has details of 250,000 wanted or missing people.

But the system, used by 28 countries, will only issue alerts about the most dangerous on-the-run criminals as well as suspected jihadists returning from Syria and Iraq, missing people and stolen goods.

It will not collate information on the convictions of EU citizens – so someone with a history of offending would not be flagged up to passport control.

No wonder notoc won't show his face around here these days:

Controversy as Islamic CALL TO PRAYER held inside historic British CATHEDRAL

A ROW has broken out after an Islamic call to prayer was held inside one of Britain's most historic cathedrals.

Jan 20, 2017

The traditional Muslim invocation to worship was performed in front of 1,000 people at the launch of a multi-cultural Faith Exhibition at Gloucester Cathedral.

Imam Hassan of the local Masjid-e-Noor mosque was invited by church leaders to carry it out in the cathedral's 11th century Chapter House.

Many worshippers welcomed the "inclusive" act but some traditionalists questioned why a "different god" should be worshipped in such an iconic Christian house.

A clip of the call to prayer was initially shared on the cathedral's Facebook page but then taken down as "inappropriate" as tensions rose.

One post on the removed thread by Isabel Farmer said: "It's wonderful to be multicultural, but faith is set apart.

"We are never to worship other gods in a house built for our Saviour.

"My ancestors built this cathedral and to allow a practising Muslim pray to another god is insanely naive. What did you think it would do? Encourage them to convert?

"This is why England is on the downslide. Culture and Race have nothing to do with the first commandment as God made all races and he cares about souls only.

"Stand firm Christians. Bring people to the faith by telling them the truth.

"God is the same yesterday, today, forever, so stop with the multicultural appeal and open a history book and a Bible for yourself."

The row spread as far as the USA and Twitter user 'Sir Anglo' tweeted: "Very disappointed that we are desecrating our gems. Gloucester Cathedral is magnificent."

Another Twitter user with the name '& drew' added: "Blasphemy at Gloucester Cathedral as Muslims abuse another 'interfaith' attempt'

Church leaders defended the call to prayer and said it was designed to promote religious tolerance and understanding.

The Very Reverend Stephen Lake, Dean of Gloucester, said: "The community event on Saturday was to launch an art exhibition, 'Faith'.

"The exhibition portrays a number of individuals' stories and gives a glimpse of who they are as people of faith.

"The exhibition promotes religious tolerance and understanding.

"Over 1,000 people from different Gloucester communities attended to share and learn about each other's spiritual practices and traditions."

He added: "It is important to stress that neither the art exhibition nor the gathering on Saturday afternoon took place in a sacred space but were held in the Cathedral Cloisters and Chapter House.

"Furthermore, the launch was not in the context of worship.

"Whilst the Cathedral's primary purpose is as a place of Christian witness and worship, it is also a place for all people - everyone is welcome, whatever their faith or background.

"We are proud to be holding the exhibition and would encourage everyone to visit to learn more about people of different faiths."

According to the 2011 Census in Gloucester 63.5 per cent of the population were Christian and 1.0 per cent were Muslim.

The 'Faith' exhibition by artist Russell Haine runs until February 26 and features 37 portraits of individuals from different belief systems.

Organiser Reverend Ruth Fitter said: "We live in a world that is becoming more and more polarised by people who claim to have the truth.

"No one has any proof of God - that's what faith is about.

"I happen to believe in Jesus Christ as the Son of God who came to dwell with me and save me from my sins.

"That doesn't mean I expect others to change their faith or believe wholeheartedly.

"It does mean, however, that I hope they will offer me the same respect as I seek to offer them.

"My parish is made up of such an eclectic diverse population and is, therefore, a beautiful image of God's creation in my view."

The incident is the second Muslim prayer row involving a British cathedral in as many weeks.

Last week, a verse from the Koran denying the divinity of Christ was read during a multi-faith event at Glasgow Cathedral.

The Queen's chaplain spoke out against the event and said cathedral should apologise to Christians "suffering dreadful persecution at the hands of Muslims".

The ringleader of the London terror attack was bankrolled by the taxpayer, it has been revealed.

Khuram Butt, 27, was claiming Jobseeker's Allowance of around £300 a month, and was also paid housing benefit for his council-owned flat in Barking as well as child benefit.

Father-of-two Butt was a supporter of al-Muhajiroun and an associate of its leader Anjem Choudary, who encouraged his followers to exploit Britain's welfare system.

The jailed hate preacher even used the phrase 'Jihad Seeker's Allowance'.

Butt, who wore an Arsenal shirt on the night of the attack, started claiming benefits after being sacked from his job on the London Underground last October.

He worked there as a trainee customer services assistant for nearly six months but was fired for poor timekeeping.

He also received Jobseeker's Allowance for over a year after leaving a job at KFC and prior to working for Transport for London, the Daily Telegraph reported.

Relatives of Butt said he drew inspiration from extremist videos on YouTube and wanted to fight in Syria but had his passport taken away by family.

Fahad Khan, 36, the cousin of Butt's wife Zahrah Rehman, claimed his younger relative watched the hateful tirades of preachers online and supported ISIS.

Butt is suspected of running mixed martial arts classes at the Ummah Fitness Centre, in Barking, in an attempt to groom teenagers for terror.

The gym was raided by police on Tuesday after CCTV revealed the three London Bridge terrorists met there days before the attack.

It shows Butt meeting Rachid Redouane, 30, and Youssef Zaghba, 22, five days before they murdered eight people and left dozens injured. 

Counter-terrorist police are building a detailed picture of the activities of the three men before Saturday night's massacre.

They are examining their movements and communications, as well as a mass of forensic evidence, to see whether they had help.

Sixteen suspects have been arrested, including three men held during raids in the early hours of yesterday.

One 29-year-old suspect was dragged from a house in Ilford by armed police and two others, aged 33 and 27, were arrested in the street in a dramatic ambush. Two are being held under terrorism laws and the other on suspicion of drugs and firearms offences.

Ilford and nearby Barking, where 12 were arrested on Sunday, have become the focus of the police inquiry. Neighbours said police spent more than an hour at the gym, which is in a small parade of shops.

They were seen leaving with computer equipment and specialists searched under parked vehicles.

LONDON'S MUSLIM MAYOR'S SOLUTION TO KNIFE CRIMES: TAKE DOWN VIDEOS

'Social media platforms must toughen their guidelines'

LIAM CLANCY
9 Aug 2017

WASHINGTON – London’s Muslim mayor, Sadiq Khan, wants to address rising violence and unrest in the U.K. capital with a campaign of censorship, calling on YouTube to take down videos about gang violence and knife crime.

London is indeed in the midst of a violent crime wave, with knives being the weapon of choice.

Knife crimes have risen by 24 percent over the last year in London, and crime is up in almost every other category as well, according to figures released by the Metropolitan police.

So Khan wants the information about such issues put behind a wall.

“Social media and the Internet can be used to inflame tensions and escalate violence quicker than ever before, and these videos are a shocking example of the glamorization of gang culture,” Khan warned earlier this week.

But are gangs the only reason for the surge in violence? Statistics say no.

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe spoke at a knife-crime conference in London recently on the reality of the violence.

“By and large, it used to be gang members, but that’s not the case now,” he said. “We’ve seen an increase in the number of other young people carrying knives, young people with no links to gangs. So at the moment, some 75 percent – three quarters – of all knife injuries among the under-25s are not gang-related. The 25 percent that are – this is around 450 offenses in the last year, so about one a day – tend to be more serious, and gang members remain the most dangerous knife carriers, but the changing trend is clearly a concern.

“The reasons, so far as we can determine by talking to suspects, are self-protection, status, protecting criminal interests – such as a drugs business – and a culture of fear. This can be a self-fulfilling prophecy, where young people equip themselves with a knife and in doing so significantly up the ante of their chances of becoming a knife victim,” Hogan-Howe concluded.

Why are young Londoners increasingly feeling the need to protect themselves?

According to a “man on the street,” Wayne, 25, a former gang member, the true cause is the recent influx of migrants from Somalia and the Congo, the Weekly Standard reports.

“In the last 10 years, since the Somalis and the Congolese came to London, they taught us a whole new level of violence,” Wayne said in an interview.

“These people had seen family members mutilated so when they said, ‘I’m gonna smash you up,’ us guys would be shouting, ‘Yo blud, wot you mean?’ and they would just pull out a blade and juk [stab] you in the chest. It upped the speed and level of violence for us British-born guys. We had to arm up to protect ourselves. It created an upward spiral,” Wayne continued.

At least 114,000 foreign-born Somalis reside in the U.K, and a majority reside in London, according to the Office for National Statistics.

There are also at least 9,000 Congolese people in the U.K., according to the 2001 census, the vast majority in London. As BBC notes, this number is dubious as “increases in people seeking refuge and removals of failed asylum seekers mean that the census figure should be treated with caution.”

It is notoriously difficult to track crime from specific migrant communities, but from the information available, knife crime is rife among a population that would include the Congolese and Somali communities.

Fifty-nine percent of knife crime offenders are from black and ethnic minority backgrounds, 95 percent of knife crime offenders are male, and 60 percent are under 25, according to the London Guardian.

U.K. authorities have an extensive history of censoring rather than addressing serious concerns with recent migrants, as WND has reported extensively in the past.

After the London Bridge terror-attack, perpetrated by a British-born Muslim, a Moroccan immigrant and a failed Moroccan refugee, British law-enforcement social media accounts made it clear they would go after those who posted anti-Muslim content on the Internet.

“Hate crime can take many forms including verbal or online abuse on social media. If you see it, report it,” police in Cheshire, a county in northwest England, tweeted in the aftermath of the attack.

British police arrested 25 people for “hate crimes” following the attack that killed eight and wounded another 48. Meanwhile, 12 potential terrorists arrested in connection with the London attack and 22 arrested in connection with the similar Manchester terror attack in May were released without charges.

Khan is also known for his now infamous “part and parcel” remark in which he downplayed the threat of terrorism as a normal part of life in a major city.
