Time to boycott Great Britain

You would have thought that after two terrorist attacks within a two weak span would enlighten the Tony Blair and the British to the growing terrorist danger brewing in its midst. You would have thought that it would enbolden the nation to take a tougher stand against terrorism and elevate its fight against the forces of evil. But, no, that is not the case. The European Union, which can also be known as the United Muslim Terrorist Front, has seen its Muslim population grow in conjunction with new records of anti-semetism. How have members of the EU responded? Well, Spain tucked its tail between its legs and ran. After the Madrid bombings, it went to elections, the people elected a gross appeaser, who withdrew their troops from Iraqs immediately after his appointment to office. France... well, do we really have to get into them? However, out of all the European nations, it has always been Britain and Tony Blair that has seemed to take the toughest stance against terrorism, sending troops to fight in the war on terror, and defending Israel's right to defend itself (well, most of the time. Ok, some of the time.) But, in their own backyard, Tony Blair and his nation have taken immense steps backward. There have been many examples over the past couple of weaks, alone, Britain has given the world many examples of why they will, as I've stated before in London Will Never Learn, continue to see terrorist attacks in their own backyard. But, as Jews, we must also stand up to the anti-semetism that is current occurring on Great Britain's soil. I'm looking for ways that we can boycott them, and send them the message that the Jews will not stand idley by while we are persecuted. Here are the reasons why they need to be boycotted. After you read, if you have any ideas of how we can boycott Britain as effectively as have France, I would love for you leave your suggestions in the comments, and if you want to e-mail them to me, just let me know:

1) Ditch Holocaust day, advisers urge Blair
The Sunday Times-Britain's reporter, Abul Teher reported on 9/11/05:

ADVISERS appointed by Tony Blair after the London bombings are proposing to scrap the Jewish Holocaust Memorial Day because it is regarded as offensive to Muslims.

They want to replace it with a Genocide Day that would recognise the mass murder of Muslims in Palestine, Chechnya and Bosnia as well as people of other faiths.

The draft proposals have been prepared by committees appointed by Blair to tackle extremism. He has promised to respond to the plans, but the threat to the Holocaust Day has provoked a fierce backlash from the Jewish community.
A member of one of the committees, made up of Muslims, said it gave the impression that “western lives have more value than non-western lives”. That perception needed to be changed. “One way of doing that is if the government were to sponsor a national Genocide Memorial Day.

“The very name Holocaust Memorial Day sounds too exclusive to many young Muslims. It sends out the wrong signals: that the lives of one people are to be remembered more than others. It’s a grievance that extremists are able to exploit.”

The recommendation, drawn up by four committees including those dealing with imams and mosques, and Islamaphobia and policing, has the backing of Sir Iqbal Sacranie, secretary-general of the Muslim Council of Britain.
Louise Ellman, Labour MP for Liverpool Riverside and a Holocaust Memorial trustee, said: “These Muslim groups should stop trying to evade the enormity of the Holocaust.”

The News.Telegraph's Toby Helm reported on 9/12/05:
Tony Blair decided to wage war on Iraq after coming under the influence of a "sinister" group of Jews and Freemasons, a Muslim barrister who advises the Prime Minister has claimed.
Ahmad Thomson, from the Association of Muslim Lawyers, said Mr Blair was the latest in a long line of politicians to have been influenced by the group which saw the attack on Saddam Hussein as a way to control the Middle East.

A Government spokesman confirmed last night that ministers and officials consulted Mr Thomson on issues concerning Muslims but refused to be drawn on his views. "We talk to a lot of people, including many whose views we do not necessarily agree with," she said.
Mr Thomson said: "Pressure was put on Tony Blair before the invasion. The way it works is that pressure is put on people to arrive at certain decisions. It is part of the Zionist plan and it is shaping events."

Mr Thomson wrote a book in 1994 in which he said Freemasons and Jews controlled the governments of Europe and America and described the claim that six million Jews died in the Holocaust as a "big lie". In The Next World Order, Mr Thomson, a Muslim convert who was born Martin Thomson in Rhodesia, wrote: "When the majority of people in a predominantly Christian society cease to worship God, the result is fascism.
He also wrote that the Jews have no right to live in "the Holy Land" because they are not a pure race and therefore not the true biblical Israelites and that Saddam was used as an excuse for US troops - "including thousands of Jews" - to occupy Saudi Arabia.

National Review Online's Andrew McCarthy reported on 9/12/05:
After the 7/7 bombing attacks by Islamo-fascists that killed scores of Londoners, British Prime Minister Tony Blair announced with great fanfare that he would create a Home Office task force of committees to "tackle extremism." The purpose, he asserted, was to confront "head on" the rise of radicalism among young Muslims.
How is it working out so far?
Well, first came the word that an invitation to participate in the effort had been extended to the media secretary for the Muslim Council of Britain, Inayat Bunglawala, known for his anti-Semitism, who refers to Osama bin Laden as a "freedom fighter," and describes Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman ("the blind sheikh" behind the 1993 World Trade Center bombing conspiracy) as "courageous."

Next to join the team was Tariq Ramadan, a Swiss professor (and grandson of the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood) who has praised jihadists attacking Israeli and American forces. Ramadan has just recently landed on his feet in England (where he has been appointed to teach at St Anthony's College at Oxford) after being banned from the United States and France (Emphasis Added).
Meanwhile, the Guardian reported last week that the 7/7 attacks appear only to have strengthened the resolve of those in Blair's government hell-bent on a strategy of "engagement" with militant Islam — gripped by the delusion that such cross-pollination will eventually transform the jihadists rather than sustain the alarming transformation of England itself. Thus they are moving toward approval of a visa allowing the reentry of Shiekh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, an influential Mulsim Brotherhood cleric (and a trustee of the Oxford University Center for Islamic Studies) who supports suicide bombers in Iraq and Israel, the stoning of homosexuals, wife-beating, female genital mutilation, and other charming aspects of the Islamist agenda.

It's a good thing the Brits are only "tackling" extremism. Who knows what they would do if they decided to start promoting it?
The Guardian Unlimited reported on 9/12/05:
Scotland Yard was thwarted yesterday in its attempt to seize a former senior Israeli army officer at Heathrow airport for alleged war crimes in occupied Palestinian lands after a British judge had issued a warrant for his arrest.

British detectives were waiting for retired Major General Doron Almog who was aboard an El Al flight which arrived from Israel yesterday. It is believed he was tipped off about his impending arrest while in the air and stayed on the plane to avoid capture until it flew back to Israel. Scotland Yard detectives were armed with a warrant naming Mr Almog as a war crimes suspect for offences that breached the Geneva conventions.

The Guardian understands police would have arrested him if he had set foot on British soil. The arrest warrant was issued on Saturday at Bow Street magistrates court, central London. It is believed to be the first warrant for war crimes of its kind issued in Britain against an Israeli national over conduct in the conflict with Palestinians.
Last night the Israeli foreign ministry, said: "In the past extremist Palestinian organisations have tried to manipulate legal processes in Europe for their own cynical ends. We have no faith in these groups but we have a lot of faith in the British legal system."

These are just 4 examples that have come up over the past weak, alone. Let's do something about this. I hope y'all have some good ideas. Look to forward to hearing them.

OC: Hi - good to be back home. Great Simpson analyzer - I'm Bart Simpson (well, according to it anyway).

UK's pretty awful...but, did you see the latest Bush joke:

When asked how he felt about Roe v Wade, George W. Bush replied, "Frankly, I don't care how people get out of New Orleans, as long as they make it out."

why are you harping on something tony blair's advisor told him to do and that he ignored? he's not actually following his advice about the holocaust thing.

I really got a laugh that "Jews and Freemasons rule the world". If only it were true.

One must distinguish terriorism from extremisism, which can embrace the former by definition.

That being said, I thought that the UK was sympathetic to the Jews, this certainly being the case during Nazi Germany with the kinder-trains and such other safe havens for us. Part of the problem is that the Muslim population is growing at such a rapid pace, and this can be a problem for us if others are recruited to train for anti-semetic and terrorist activities.

hope you are well, OC

Menachem, you fail to see that it doesn't matter whether it was ignored or not. He is paying these people to "advise" him on these matters. It's tantamount to appeasement in his own backyard. That's a problem. Even Tony Blair is chagrinned with some of what's going on. During the UN conference, Blair invited Sharon to visit Great Britain any time he liked. Sharon answered that he would love to, but he's afraid he'd be arrested. That's the kind of rediculousness thats going on.
Barb, the British were no more sympathetic to the Jews' plight during the Holocaust than FDR was. I can give plenty of examples, but there were many instances where the British were more reluctant to help the Jews than FDR. In any case, I'm not hearing any ideas here. That's just sad. We're talking, but nobody's willing to do any action.
