Britain cannot PREVENT crime because ‘obeying the law’ is not a British value

Britain has appointed Sara Khan as its new Lead Commissioner for Countering Extremism. This part-time post earns a tax-payer funded salary of £140,000 a year + expenses. This is seven times more than a Police Constable who works double the hours without expenses. This raises a question of priorities. Is the British government and establishment more interested in curbing Islam than solving crime?


When the recorded crime figures were published in October last year, a surge in violent crime pushed recorded crime figures in England and Wales up by 13% on the previous year. Immediately after this figure was published Trump tried linking this increase to Muslims. He tweeted, ‘Just out report: “United Kingdom crime rises 13% annually amid spread of Radical Islamic terror.” Not good, we must keep America safe!’

Trump’s claim was quickly debunked, and while he and others attempt to blame Islam for societal ills, the reality is that western societies are becoming increasingly lawless and the cause is not Islam. The problem of crime is a problem of values.

The values underpinning this growing lawlessness is rampant individualism due to society’s belief in freedom and liberalism.

The British government defines its values as, ‘democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and the mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs.’ Anyone who actively opposes these values is labelled an extremist and targeted by the security services and PREVENT officers.

An interesting point to note is that opposing the rule of law is not the same as obeying the law. If this was the case then the 9 million Brits with criminal records – including many lawmakers in Parliament – would be considered extremists which is not the case.

David Cameron, the former Prime Minister highlighted this when he said back in May 2015, “For too long, we have been a passively tolerant society, saying to our citizens: as long as you obey the law, we will leave you alone. It’s often meant we have stood neutral between different values. And that’s helped foster a narrative of extremism and grievance.” Cameron made a clear distinction between obeying the law and values. This means a law-abiding Muslim may be considered an extremist whereas a non-Muslim criminal wouldn’t be. The UK has no PREVENT or de-radicalisation programmes targeting criminals. Crime is blamed on poverty, social deprivation and other factors but never on secular values. This is because the root cause of crime stems from secular liberal values like individual liberty, which is a fundamental pillar of British society according to the government.

Police budgets in Britain are being slashed so much that in order to cut costs the Met Police will ignore burglaries, thefts and some assaults unless a suspect is identified. Deputy Assistant Commissioner Mark Simmons said: ‘We are having to balance the books with fewer officers and less money.’

Contrast this to the government’s counter-terrorism (CT) and counter-extremism (read counter-Islam) programmes which have huge ring-fenced budgets. While most Brits would support a PREVENT programme to tackle violent crime the government disagrees. Instead they divert funds and policing resources to PREVENT and CT officers, who then interrogate law abiding Muslims and school children on their political and religious views. They try and stop Islamic events by bullying venues in to closing them down, while crime goes ahead in the near vicinity without investigation. They pull over Muslims under Schedule 7 at airports, spoiling their holidays and upsetting their families when no crime or even suspicion of a crime has been committed.

So going back to the initial question. Is the British establishment more interested in destroying Islam than reducing crime? The answer is clearly yes. The societal elite or establishment which the Qur’an refers to as ???????? are rarely affected by the crime ordinary people face. They live in wealthy suburbs with private security. These elites are only interested in preserving the Capitalist status quo and destroying any opposition to it, which after the death of Communism is Islam. They would rather have Muslims committing crime but believing in man-made secular law than law-abiding Muslims believing in the superiority of sharia. The government’s counter-extremism strategy specifically mentions sharia and says, ‘There is only one rule of law in our country, which provides rights and security for every citizen. We will never countenance allowing an alternative, informal system of law, informed by religious principles, to operate in competition with it.’

In other words, following sharia is a red line despite the benefits it will bring to wider society in terms of accountability and lower crime rates.

Unlike British values, Islamic values are clearly defined and fixed within the Islamic texts. In the Islamic State obeying the law is a fundamental value and forms the basis of the bay’a contract between Muslim citizens and the state, and the dhimma contract between non-Muslims citizens and the state.

Allah (most High) says:

“O you who believe! Obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you.”

(An-Nisaa, 4:59)

The Prophet Muhammad ? said:

“One who dislikes a thing done by his Ameer (leader) should be patient over it. For anyone from the people who withdraws (his obedience) from the sultan, even to the extent of a handspan and died in that condition, would die the death of one belonging to the days of jahilliyya (ignorance).”

(Sahih Muslim, 1849)

It’s hard find to find anyone living in western societies who is not the victim of crime in some form or another. This is a problem that will never go away without a fundamental change in societal values. As many commentators have said the UK government’s counter-terror and counter-extremism strategies will not make Britain safer because that’s not their aim. Their aim is to assimilate Muslims by destroying core Islamic values and replacing them with British secular values.

“They would like you to disbelieve as they disbelieve so that you will all be the same.”

(An-Nisa, 4:89)

Western countries have completely failed in imposing their values on Muslims whether at home or abroad. This is why we see ban after ban across Europe on Muslim women’s clothing, and ever-increasing laws aimed at curbing Islamic practices such as PREVENT. In the face of Islam’s high values, western secular values are doomed to fail.

Allah (Most High) says,

Rather We hurl the truth against falsehood and it cuts right through it and it vanishes clean away! Woe without end for you for what you portray!

(Anbiyaa, 18)

Samuel Huntington says, “The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion (to which few members of other civilizations converted) but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact; non-Westerners never do.” *

Liberty Counsel, Family Research Council, et al #fundie pjmedia.com

No fewer than 60 organizations branded "hate groups" or otherwise attacked by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) are considering legal action against the left-wing smear factory, a Christian legal nonprofit leader confirmed to PJ Media on Tuesday. He suggested that the $3 million settlement and apology the SPLC gave to Maajid Nawaz and his Quilliam Foundation on Monday would encourage further legal action.
"We haven't filed anything against the SPLC, but I think a number of organizations have been considering filing lawsuits against the SPLC, because they have been doing to a lot of organizations exactly what they did to Maajid Nawaz," Mat Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, told PJ Media on Tuesday.
Liberty Counsel filed a lawsuit against the charity navigation organization GuideStar for defamation after GuideStar adopted the SPLC's "hate group" list. That lawsuit is ongoing.

In 2016, the SPLC published its "Field Guide to Anti-Muslim Extremists," listing Muslim reformer Maajid Nawaz, a practicing Muslim, as one such extremist. The left-wing group listed various reasons for including him, changing the reasons every so often, and even at one point mentioning that he had gone to a strip club for his bachelor party.
On Monday, SPLC President Richard Cohen extended his group's "sincerest apologies to Mr. Nawaz, Quilliam, and our readers for the error, and we wish Mr. Nawaz and Quilliam all the best." In settling the suit, the SPLC paid Nawaz's organization $3.375 million.

"This is a significant settlement," Staver told PJ Media. "3.375 million dollars, and it did not even go to litigation; it was a result of a demand letter."

Importantly, "the allegations that were at issue here were very similar to the allegations against the other groups," the Liberty Counsel chairman explained. "The SPLC promotes false propaganda, demonizes and labels groups they disagree with, and that labeling has economic as well as physical consequences."

The SPLC started as a group to oppose racist terrorism, and its first legal action targeted the Ku Klux Klan. In recent decades, the organization has begun marking mainstream organizations as "hate groups" on par with the KKK. Last year, 47 nonprofit leaders denounced the SPLC's "hate list" in an open letter to the media. The SPLC has admitted that its "hate group" list is based on "opinion.""SPLC's partisan tactics and slander have ruinous, real-world consequences for which they should not be excused; we are evaluating all our options to defend the good name of ADF, including possible legal action," Tedesco concluded.
Staver noted that the SPLC labels groups "in order to destroy them," and he pointed out that that characterization comes from the SPLC's own words. The Liberty Counsel chairman also referenced a terror attack inspired by the left-wing group's "hate map."
In 2012, Floyd Lee Corkins III broke into the Family Research Council (FRC), aiming to kill everyone in the building. He admitted to targeting the FRC because the SPLC listed it as an "anti-gay group" on its "hate map." That wasn't the only incident connecting the SPLC with terror, however.
"Even the shooter last year in D.C. was a Facebook fan of the SPLC and the SPLC ran a false article saying [House Majority Whip] Steve Scaliese was a white supremacist," Staver added. In a statement, Nawaz himself had highlighted the connection between the SPLC and James Hodgkinson, the Congressional Baseball Game shooter last summer.
"There are people out there that are unhinged. They go out and take action. They assume that somebody hates them," the Liberty Counsel chairman explained. Due to these radical actors, "You have to be careful with your language. We can disagree but we can't demonize one another. Certainly, do not do anything that would put somebody that you disagree with in physical danger."
"The groups that we're talking to, that have approached us, all of them oppose violence," Staver said. "None of them advocate violence. They don't agree with the SPLC on certain issues, but they oppose violence. They have no reason to hate anyone."
It is hard to predict how a 60-party lawsuit against the SPLC's "hate group" labeling would play out. D. James Kennedy Ministries, the Christian nonprofit that sued Amazon and the SPLC over the "hate group" defamation last year, reported in late May that a preliminary hearing on its case was a "positive development."
Nawaz's case may be unique, since it involved a devout Muslim slandered as an "anti-Muslim extremist." Even so, the settlement does give grounds for hope, and the falsely labeled "hate groups" are considering their options.

Staver insisted that the settlement with Nawaz "will encourage further legal action." He suggested that the settlement "helps our lawsuit against GuideStar" and may encourage organizations that were considering suing the SPLC to actually file the paperwork.
"There are probably about 60 organizations that we're talking to — there's at least 60," Staver told PJ Media. He mentioned the group of 47 nonprofit leaders who denounced the SPLC last year, and said "that group has grown since then."
Furthermore, many of the "hate groups" attacked by the SPLC do not encourage hate or violence, but merely disagree with the left-wing organization's political views. Many — like the Family Research Council (FRC), the Ruth Institute, and Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) — merely stand for marriage as between one man and one woman. The SPLC has twisted 30-year-old arguments to smear these groups, and in one egregious case the group actually quoted as hateful the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

Other organizations attacked by the SPLC also told PJ Media they are "considering their options" regarding a lawsuit.
"Truthfully, I have not been following the activities of the SPLC too closely," Jennifer Roback Morse, founder and president of the Ruth Institute, an organization that lost its credit card processor, Vanco Payments, over the SPLC's "hate group" labeling last year, told PJ Media. "Pursuing our mission is more important than attempting to take on the behemoth of the SPLC."
"I must say, though, this apology to Mr. Nawaz has caused us to consider our options," Morse added, cryptically.
"We are reviewing all our legal options," J.P. Duffy, a spokesman for the Family Research Council, told PJ Media on Tuesday.
A spokesman for Prager University, another organization attacked by the SPLC, said that "at this point" the group had "no intention to sue," but they "reserve the right to change their mind as the situation evolves."
Jeremy Tedesco, senior counsel at Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), echoed this trend, saying his organization is "evaluating all our options," including a potential lawsuit.
"It's appalling and offensive for the Southern Poverty Law Center to compare peaceful organizations which condemn violence and racism with violent and racist groups just because it disagrees with their views," Tedesco told PJ Media. "That's what SPLC did in the case of Quilliam and its founder Maajid Nawaz, and that's what it has done with ADF and numerous other organizations and individuals."
"This situation confirms once again what commentators across the political spectrum have been saying for decades: SPLC has become a far-left organization that brands its political opponents as 'haters' and 'extremists' and has lost all credibility as a civil rights watchdog," the ADF senior counsel added.
Tedesco defended the good name of Alliance Defending Freedom, which SPLC falsely maligns as a "hate group." "With eight wins in the last seven years at the U.S. Supreme Court and hundreds of victories for free speech at America's public universities, ADF is one of the nation's most respected and successful legal advocates, working to preserve our fundamental freedoms of speech, religion, and conscience for people from all walks of life," he said.

Al-Khanssaa Brigade #fundie theguardian.com

Girls can marry at the age of nine, should ideally have husbands by 16 or 17 and should not be corrupted by going to work, according to a treatise published by female Islamic State supporters in Iraq and Syria.

The document, Women of the Islamic State: Manifesto and Case Study, says women must stay behind closed doors and leave the house only in exceptional circumstances.

“It is always preferable for a woman to remain hidden and veiled, to maintain society from behind this veil,” the English translation says. Fashion shops and beauty salons are denounced as the work of the devil.

The semi-official Islamic State manifesto on women – believed to be the first of its kind – was published on a jihadi forum in Arabic last month and is purported to be by the media wing of the al-Khanssaa Brigade, an all-female militia set up by Islamic State (Isis).

It has now been translated into English by the London-based counter-extremism thinktank Quilliam Foundation.

The introduction to the treatise says it has not been sanctioned by “the state” – meaning Islamic State – or its leadership but is a document to “clarify the role of Muslim women and the life which is desired for them” and “to clarify the realities of life and the hallowed existence of women in the Islamic State”.

The manifesto says: “From ages seven to nine, there will be three lessons: fiqh (understanding) and religion, Qur’anic Arabic (written and read) and science (accounting and natural sciences).

“From 10 to 12, there will be more religious studies, especially fiqh, focusing more on fiqh related to women and the rulings on marriage and divorce. This is in addition to the other two subjects. Skills like textiles and knitting, basic cooking will also be taught.

“From 13 to 15, there will be more of a focus on sharia, as well as more manual skills (especially those related to raising children) and less of the science, the basics of which will already have been taught. In addition, they will be taught about Islamic history, the life of the prophet and his followers.

“It is considered legitimate for a girl to be married at the age of nine. Most pure girls will be married by 16 or 17, while they are still young and active. Young men will not be more than 20 years old in those glorious generations.”

The western model for woman has failed, the treatise says, with women who go to work taking on “corrupted ideas and shoddy-minded beliefs instead of religion”. “The model preferred by infidels in the west failed the minute that women were ‘liberated’ from their cell in the house,” it says.

The manifesto includes a lengthy condemnation of the culture of the “disbelievers of Europe”, urging its readers to disavow “falsity and materialism in civilisation” and to devote oneself instead to religious knowledge.

The ideal Islamic community, it says, should not be caught up with “trying to uncover the secrets of nature and reaching the peaks of architectural sophistication”. They should instead concentrate on the implementation of sharia law and the spreading of Islam.

In a section entitled: “How the soldiers of Iblis [the devil] keep women from paradise”, the authors take aim at the western lifestyle that encourages both men and women to gain an education and employment. The manifesto denounces the wearing of fashionable clothes and piercings, concluding: “This urbanisation, modernity and fashion is presented by Iiblis [the devil] in fashion shops and beauty salons.”

It is the “fundamental function” of a woman to be in the house with her husband and children, the jihadi guide says, adding that they may leave the house to serve the community only in exceptional circumstances – to wage jihad when there are no men available, to study religion, and female doctors and teachers are permitted to leave but “must keep strictly to sharia guidelines”.

“Yes, we say: ‘Stay in your houses’, but this does not mean, in any way, that we support illiteracy, backwardness or ignorance,” the English-language translation reads. “Rather, we just support the distinction between working – that which involves a woman leaving the house – and studying, as it was ordained she should do.”

Cleric Mizanur Rahman #fundie google.com.au

A British hate preacher backed the Paris massacres just hours after the bloody events unfolded and told his followers ‘Britain is the enemy of Islam’.

Cleric Mizanur Rahman, of Palmers Green, north London, defended the brutal murder of 12 people at the Charlie Hebdo offices, saying ‘insulting Islam…they can’t expect a different result.’

Experts have warned the sermon, which backed the jihadists who killed 17 people over three days in the French capital, could incite further killings.

Speaking to an audience in London which was streamed online to thousands of his followers, Rahman praised Al Qaeda and said ‘Britain is the enemy of Islam.’

Sam Westrop, director of counter-extremism group Stand for Peace told the Sunday Mirror: ‘His kind of rhetoric is not an echo of Islamist terror and extremism – it is a driving force behind it.

‘It is truly reprehensible for him to speak like this, especially so soon after Paris.’

His speech on Friday night came to light after reporters from the Sunday Mirror gained access to an online live stream - they then notified the Metropolitan Police.

The newspaper reported that in the video Rahman claimed France was carrying out 'ethnic cleansing', and told his followers what happened in France was 'war.'

He said: 'These cartoons is part of their own war, is part of the psychological warfare...you know what happens when you insult Mohammed.'

Fadel Soliman #fundie dailymail.co.uk

An Islamic cleric who defends domestic violence is among a string of extremist speakers touring British universities unchallenged, the Mail Investigations Unit can reveal.

Egyptian cleric Fadel Soliman spoke at five such events last year, using them to refer Muslim students to an online lecture series in which he speaks in favour of hitting women and outlines the Islamic case for sex slavery and polygamy.

Mr Soliman told students at Sheffield University that watching his lectures could be ‘a turning point’ in their lives.

In his extraordinary videos, he advises physical punishment for wives who have displeased their husbands, saying ‘the hitting must be done with a small stick’.

"The true implication of the spanking is to sound an alarm that the husband has passed to a new stage of serious displeasure."
Egyptian cleric Fadel Soliman

Explaining why it is necessary, he says that when a husband is unhappy with the behaviour of his wife, ‘after passing through two stages of non-physical interaction, the next stage must involve something physical, in order to escalate the intensity of the warning’.

The preacher is one of several extremists being permitted to espouse their views unchallenged at Britain’s universities – in a possible breach of the Government’s counter-extremism strategy, Prevent. Since September, universities and colleges are legally required to have policies to stop extremists radicalising students on campus. This includes an obligation to ‘ensure those espousing extremist views do not go unchallenged’.

The Mail revealed yesterday how CAGE – the notorious organisation which called Islamic State killer Jihadi John ‘a beautiful young man’ – has participated in at least 13 university events since September, calling on students to sabotage Prevent.

Another group, MEND, an Islamist organisation whose director has condoned the killing of British troops, appeared in at least ten events on campuses across the country last term.

And a speaker from an organisation which mocked last year’s Charlie Hebdo terror attack in Paris spoke at a student event despite having being refused permission, using the platform to tell students the State was ‘fundamentally racist’ and they should oppose Prevent.

Home Secretary Theresa May said the revelations show universities need to do more to stop ‘damaging, extremist rhetoric’ going unchallenged on campuses.
Up to 19 universities where the Mail identified extremist-linked speakers or events could now face an inquiry by the Higher Education Funding Council for England, it is understood.

Lord Carlile, one of Britain’s top legal experts, said last night that universities that allowed Mr Soliman to speak unchallenged had ‘failed in their duty of care’. He said: ‘This is a person who has given at least tacit approval to what sounds like criminal behaviour. Universities really should not be permitting people like this on to their campuses.

Mr Soliman is thought to have spoken at Nottingham, Leicester, Leeds, Manchester and Sheffield universities. He urged young Muslims to watch his disturbing 30-part video series endorsing violent and extreme practices.

In one, he suggests it is acceptable for a man to hit his wife, if she repeatedly ‘goes out and refuses to say where she’s going’. He says: ‘The hitting must be done with a small stick’ and ‘should not be painful’, adding: ‘The true implication of the spanking is to sound an alarm that the husband has passed to a new stage of serious displeasure.’

In another video he says it is forbidden for men and women to ‘engage in frivolous talk’, that ‘men and women should lower their gaze and avoid unnecessary eye contact, especially with lust’. He says Muslims should avoid interacting with members of the opposite sex, even at work, and women should not wear perfume as it ‘arouses men’. In other videos, he outlines the Islamic case for sex slavery and polygamy.

At an event at the University of Sheffield on December 3, Mr Soliman urged 120 Muslim students: ‘Put these videos on your Facebook pages, share it with people.’ He was also allowed to speak at the University of Manchester last month, despite concerns being raised by university staff. At the event, the cleric said: ‘They told me not to say anything controversial.’

Mr Soliman denies he supports domestic violence. He said: ‘I have provided the Mail with a detailed response to the allegations which are published in this article and informed them in detail why I am not guilty of the things which they allege against me. Once the paper is published, I will respond to the allegations on my own website.’

He has a strong following among young female students. The Sheffield event – which was not formally segregated but at which men and women sat on opposite sides of the hall – had an audience of more than 100 students, mostly female.

Beforehand, groups of young women could be heard discussing how much they ‘love’ Mr Soliman – even making swooning gestures and fanning themselves. One woman in her early 20s, who travelled from London, told others how excited she was to see the cleric in person.

"It’s within their interest to fuel Islamophobia. It’s within their interest to sell more weapons. It’s within their interest to make the Middle East unstable."

Miko Peled #racist antisemitism.uk

American-Israeli activist, Miko Peled, is scheduled to speak on Friday 10th November at University College London (UCL) at an event organised by the UCL Friends of Palestine Society. Mr Peled’s views have, in the past, engaged the International Definition of Antisemitism adopted by the British Government and also engage the Prevent counter-extremism strategy. Campaign Against Antisemitism is writing to UCL to raise our concerns about Mr Peled and to call for the event to be cancelled.

In September, Mr Peled made national headlines by demanding at the Labour Party Conference that delegates should have the freedom to engage in debate as to whether the Holocaust actually happened at all. He said that people should be free to ask “Holocaust, yes or no” because “there should be no limits on the discussion.” He additionally reportedly proposed that Israelis should be treated like Nazis. He was widely condemned.

Mr Peled has form. For example, on 23rd May 2016, speaking at an art gallery in Euston, London, Mr Peled alleged that the Labour Party’s antisemitism furore is being fabricated by “Zionists”. He said: “Everyone knows this entire antisemitism thing is nonsense”. At the same event, Mr Peled also alleged that Islamophobia is a strategic invention of “Zionists”. He said: “If anyone has any doubt, that this entire Islamophobia thing isn’t coming directly from pro-Israeli groups, then excuse me you are out of your mind. Absolutely. And when you look at each case, individually you will see, the hand, the fingerprints of some Israeli lobby, some pro-Zionist groups.”

On 14th September 2016, Mr Peled tweeted about a new aid package granted to Israel by the United States: “Then theyr surprised Jews have reputation 4being sleazy thieves. #apartheidisrael doesn’t need or deserve these $$.” In response, his forthcoming event hosted by the Princeton Committee on Palestine was cancelled on the basis that: “The last string of tweets are antisemitic and hateful, which are counterproductive to an educational event on the conflict.”

Unknown pupils #racist pressreader.com

A SCHOOL that educates some of England’s rising football stars is failing to tackle extremism among its pupils, whistleblowers have claimed.

Nazi paraphernalia, including a helmet and a flag associated with white supremacy, were paraded through the corridors at Rainhill High School in Liverpool, The Sunday Telegraph understands. Earlier this week it emerged that one teenager was even featured in a photograph on the front page of the school’s newsletter, proudly displaying an “Isis salute”, a gesture of support for Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.

The headmaster later apologised, saying it was “issued in error” and removed the newsletter from the website. But a whistleblower said far-Right extremism was endemic at the school, claiming the management was failing to tackle to problem. The secondary school in Merseyside is the nominated school for players en-rolled in Liverpool FC’s academy and counts England midfielder Raheem Sterling among its alumni.

It is not suggested that any pupils of the school who are players with Liverpool FC Academy have engaged in such extremism or that the club has knowledge of any such behaviour.

A source close to the school said: “The school has had an increasing problem with Right-wing extremism. The evidence is there, and unfortunately the school just do not want to address it.” They allege that a student had been “marching around school” blasting out German military music on a phone, and that one student brought a Confederate flag into school. A second whistleblower claimed that a student was seen doing a Nazi salute, while another group of pupils were caught defiling a local war memorial.

“One brought a Nazi flag into school and had to be stopped from putting it up on parents’ evening,” the whistleblower said. “The lads have tried measuring other pupils’ noses to see if they are Jews and shouting ‘ we are the SS, kill the Jews’, during a lunch break.” The school has denied the allegations, but said that three students have been referred to Prevent, the Government’s counter-extremism strategy, one of whom had desecrated a cenotaph and another who had told a fellow pupil, “you’re so skinny you should be in Auschwitz”. The school acknowledged that a pupil had brought in Nazi paraphernalia, but this was “for a GCSE history lesson and GCSE options evening to promote GCSE history”.

Parents and teachers have raised their concerns with Ofsted and their trade union, The Sunday Telegraph understands. John Pout, the headmaster, said: “In my opinion we have not got an issue with Right-wing extremism at Rainhill High School. The three isolated cases that have been brought to our attention have been dealt with quickly and thoroughly.” Rainhill High School is the official academy for Liverpool FC. Liverpool FC declined to comment.

Sturmvogel and various parents #fundie everydayantisemitism.com

The Express has revealed footage purporting to show German children attending a summer camp run by far-right groups in Sweden.

The footage shows children in the woods dressed in uniforms with Sturmvogel logo. Sturmvogel is a far-right group founded in 1987 and apparently has links to Nazism and Holocaust denial. They also have links to the banned groups Wiking-Jugend and Heimattreue Deutsche Jugend.

The camps are structured in a quasi-militaristic manner, with children expected to stand in silence and salute the flag until they are dismissed.

The group holds its camps in Sweden to avoid German counter-extremism laws.

Andrea Ropke, a German expert on the far right, notes that the children are sent to the camps by their parents: “Nationalist youth education is very important to them and the camps are an important part of the business”.

Anonymous #fundie lbc.co.uk

Supermarket Tesco has condemned "sickening" online comments about their latest Christmas advert, which featured a Muslim family.

The clip provoked a racist response. Some called it “very wrong”, others promised to boycott the supermarket.

Maajid Nawaz was discussing the backlash when he spoke to a born again Christian who insisted Maajid would be welcome to join him for Christmas lunch.

But when the invitation was requited to Maajid's Eid celebrations, his caller couldn't accept.

He explained: "That's a celebration of something that's wrong. I don't embrace another religious practice.

"I'm sorry, but that would be a sin. Unrepentant sinners categorically go to hell, please do not.

"Hell is a place where Jesus is not, it is literally hell. It is a lake of fire where you will be tormented forever. You will burn but won't be burning up.

"It was not designed for you, it was designed for Satan.

"Hell is place of torment and gnashing of teeth."

Maajid Nawaz #conspiracy thedailybeast.com

Opposing Israel is The One Ring that binds us all. It is the sacred god that must not be questioned. So deep runs this bias against Israeli transgressions, that to call it out is to arouse immediately incredulity and ad hominem abuse.

So entrenched is it, that few noticed how on the very morning of Resolution 2334 a motion seeking to stem the flow of weapons going to what the UN itself fears are genocidal killers in South Sudan failed.

The Security Council could not even bring itself to adopt the simplest of resolutions calling for a seven-day ceasefire to halt the tragedy of Aleppo. Yet when it came to pushing through a final year-end condemnation of Israel, the Security Council suddenly mustered the will to act.

Secretary Kerry noted that Israel’s current government is its most right wing in history. Without a hint of irony he failed to mention that’s exactly what happens when a country faces repeated jihadist terrorist attacks. Just look to Europe and the U.S., magically made “Great Again.” He also left out the nature of Israel’s proportionate electoral system, which allows fringe elements to hold more mainstream parties hostage, drifting them to the right.

No, Resolution 2334 will not help peace. It can only hinder it. For the UN’s posturing will not go unnoticed inside Israel, and can only encourage further intransigence by facilitating the rise of Israel’s religious right under Naftali Bennet. It will also undermine the legitimacy of the UN itself.

Tayyib Nawaz #racist mancunion.com

The recently-elected MMU Co-Chair of Manchester Labour Students (MLS), Tayyib Nawaz, has stood down from his position, after the uncovering of offensive tweets seen by The Mancunion.

The tweets – some of which have now been deleted – regarding Jewish and gay people, as well as feminists, surfaced late last week and were brought to the attention of the society. At an official MLS meeting on Monday night, a motion calling for his resignation, brought by outgoing University of Manchester Co-Chair Zak Deakin, was unanimously backed by the committee. On Tuesday afternoon, Nawaz chose to resign from the post.

Former MLS Campaigns Officer Marley Bennett, speaking to The Mancunion before the resignation, said Nawaz was “largely unknown to Manchester Labour Students before winning the position of Manchester Metropolitan Co-Chair. It is unclear whether he ever attended an MLS meeting prior to winning the role.

“Tayyib says that the main reason he ran for Chair is to pass BDS policy [at MMU]. It is clear that he did not have our Labour values to heart when he did so.”

In a tweet on April 1, 2016, Nawaz said “the same victims of the Holocaust are now murdering and ethnically cleansing Palestinians…The irony”. At other times he makes comparisons between the Israeli state and the Nazis, and has posted such comments as “there were approximately 150,000 Jewish SS who personally were involved in the holocaust” and “Hitler was Jewish himself”. In April 2015 he seemed to make light of the Holocaust, tweeting: “Debating with an Israeli *Uses the Holocaust card* Automatic victory”.

In one tweet he appears to compare Israel to ISIS – “ISIS is not a democratic organisation like Israel but both murder civilians and claim their authority is from God”. In another, he says “Zionism is scum, even Einstein was against the Zionist terrorism which pressured the creation of israel”.

Labour Students societies across the country have faced scrutiny over alleged anti-Semitism in the past year; Oxford University Labour Club students were found to have engaged in anti-Semitic behaviour in a Labour inquiry launched after the high-profile resignation of their co-Chair, Alex Chalmers, who said members had “some kind of problem with Jews”.

Furthermore, groups on the political Left of politics have struggled with anti-Semitism. Last month the Labour Party was criticised for handing a one-year suspension, rather than total expulsion, to former Mayor of London Ken Livingstone after an interview in which he claimed Hitler “was supporting Zionism before he went mad and ended up killing six million Jews”.

Nawaz also seems to have tweeted homophobic and anti-feminist statements, such as “Muslim feminism supporters? Muslim Gay rights activists? If my kids were any of these I’d slap them […]”.

In one tweet, posted on 24 July 2015, he uses a homophobic slur: “When you spell Gay wrong but your phone auto corrects it to Fag”.

Zak Deakin, also speaking before Nawaz’s resignation, said: “The tweets that have surfaced in the last few days are completely abhorrent. Tayyib’s views have no place in the Labour Party and the fact that they came from an individual who holds an elected role within our movement makes it even more sickening.

“I stood on a platform of tackling Anti-Semitism and so I’m incredibly dismayed and frustrated that I once again find myself having to make a statement in regards to this blatant racism: I can only apologise to Jewish students who have again had to be put through this.”

Leoni Benabú Morales, President of the Manchester Jewish Society (JSoc), also condemned the tweets, highlighting that Jewish students in MLS “have already raised concerns about his election and what that means with regards to the increasing number of Anti-Semitic incidents in the labour party”.

He added: “Claiming that Hitler himself is Jewish and comparing Israel to Nazi Germany is an insult and should not be tolerated from anyone, much less someone who is meant to represent our students. For us, it is of uttermost importance that Jewish students in Manchester feel safe, and we believe that this is a step backwards in achieving that. The JSoc will not stand for this kind of racist behaviour”.

Mo Ahmed, a former MMU Co-chair of MLS and current branch secretary of MMU Labour Students, said: “I think the tweets are abhorrent. People who tweet these kind of things have no place in the Labour Party. Antisemitism is one of the oldest kinds of racism in the world, it has no place in a left-of-centre party… Also these tweets, other than being disgusting and abhorrent, are against Labour Party rules too.”

President of the MMU Students’ Union, Lewis Bartlett, said: “These comments do not represent the views of the staff and/or officers at The Union, Manchester Metropolitan University.

“The Union has and will continue to be an open and inclusive space for all of our members. We have worked closely with UJS, NUS and other organisations to ensure discriminatory behaviour is unacceptable within our organisation, and that we have the resources in place to support all students and religious groups at our university.”

Majid Nawaz is an atheist, not a Muslim. He can sell his soul to the devil to "reform Islam" as much as he likes but Islam will remain Islam. Islam is not Christianity. Islam is the source of modernity. Other systems should imitate Islam for better justice and equality, not the other way around. There is no doubt that western governments and media are using poodles like Nawaz to confuse the masses. The solution is Muslim activism. Muslims must come out of their comfort zones and start to question governments and media for having paid prostitutes like Nawaz to speak for Muslims (especially when he is a known Islamophobe). Muslims must get involved in media or create their own...

Three members of the persecuted Ahmadiyya community have been sentenced to death in Pakistan’s Punjab province for committing blasphemy by tearing up posters that demanded boycott of the minority sect.

They have also been fined Rs 200,000 each and in case they don’t pay the fine, they would undergo six months of rigorous punishment.

Additional District and Sessions Judge of Sheikhupura district of Punjab province Mian Javed Akram announced the verdict on Wednesday after the prosecution submitted evidence and presented all witnesses in the case.

A blasphemy case registered against them in May in 2014 for tearing religious posters.

According to Sharqpur police station official Muhammad Ashar, the people had displayed posters in the village urging social boycott of the Ahmadiyya community. “The posters carried Islamic verses,” he said.

On removing the posters, a complaint was filed against the three men that led to their subsequent arrest.

The convicts admitted before the court that they had removed the posters for demanding social boycott of Ahmadiyya community but not to commit blasphemy.

Their counsel will challenge the verdict in the higher court.

On Wednesday, ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s son-in-law Mohammad Safdar launched a tirade against the Ahmaddiya community, demanding their exclusion from the government and military service.

The Ahmadiyya community was declared non-Muslims in Pakistan through a constitutional amendment in 1974 during the tenure of former prime minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto.

This measure was later followed with former president Gen Ziaul Haq, making it a punishable offence for Ahmadiyyas to call themselves Muslim or to refer to their faith as Islam.

The community is also banned from preaching as well as from travelling to Saudi Arabia for pilgrimage. They are also not allowed to publish any material propagating their faith.

Members of the community in Pakistan have often been targeted.

In 2012, Anne-Marie Slaughter, the first female director of policy planning in the US State Department and mother of two, also expressed similar views, when she wrote an opinion-piece in The Atlantic entitled, “Why Women Still Can’t Have it All”. She described her guilt on the limited time she had with her children and the strain this had caused on her relationship with them. This led to her leaving her high-flying job in order to spend more time with her family. She talked about how the feminist beliefs that she had built her career on were shifting, and that for women to believe they could ‘have it all’ was airbrushing reality. She wrote, “It’s time to stop fooling ourselves. We have to stop accepting… male choices as a default.”

Last week in the UK, high-profile TV personality and self-avowed “passionate feminist” Kirstie Allsop made headlines when she suggested in an interview with the Telegraph that young women should acknowledge the decline in women’s fertility with age and therefore prioritise starting a family before embarking on their careers to avoid the heartache of not being able to conceive children in later life. She said, “At the moment, women have 15 years to go to university, to get their career on track, try and buy a home, and have a baby. That’s a hell of a lot to ask someone.” She said her advice was based on the biological clock of women and that while the time of starting a career or even a university education can be changed, fertility cannot be altered. Her statements elicited scathing remarks and a furious attack from feminists who casted her a misogynist and accused her of rolling back the fight for women’s liberation. In response, Allsop tweeted, “Nature is not a feminist”.

The problem with feminism is that it has consistently denied biology throughout its history, with drastic consequences. Its serious error was to not simply call for the right of women to enjoy the same worth and rights of citizenship as men but to measure their success based upon adopting all the rights, roles, and duties of men. This simply exchanged one form of oppression with another for it cast as irrelevant her nature as the bearer of children, expecting her to become equal to men in the workplace while ignoring the blatant fact that she will always be biologically unequal to them.

She therefore entered an unwinnable battle against nature in the name of playing catch-up with men, often sacrificing in the process her natural urge of motherhood – all to step into the shoes of an artificial, fictitious identity of the ‘have it all woman’ constructed by confused feminists past and present. And in embracing this identity, she replaced one form of devaluing of women who were treated within Western societies as intellectually, spiritually and socially inferior to men, with another. This is because by defining her success against the yardstick of adopting the traditional roles of men, especially as wage-earner, she diminished the status of the very thing that makes the woman distinct and privileged over men – the ability to bear and nurse the future generations of societies.

This unique attribute of the woman began to be viewed as a handicap to securing a successful career and aiding the economic productivity of businesses and nations rather than a vital quality for humanity that should be cherished, valued, protected and raised in status within societies. Liberation became liberation from womanhood. The consequence of all of this was stress, guilt, heartache, and lack of overall contentment with life. The other defining mark of feminism is ceaseless confusion regarding the roles and choices of men and women. This is reflected in relentless disputes between feminists over the issue, as well as ever-changing views of what constitutes women’s liberation. This begs the question as to why Western governments and feminist organisations are so stubbornly adamant in trying to market feminist ideals and this failed Western model of ‘women’s liberation’ to the Muslim world?

In this debate, one journalist wrote, “There is no template for successfully being female”. Islam utterly disputes this. It has for centuries defined a vital primary role of women as home-makers, mothers and nurturers of children – one that the Muslim society is obliged to greatly value and protect. This does not deprive women of the right to education, work, or a political voice as some secularists have claimed. It simply means that she is able to embrace the identity of the true ‘have it all woman’ – an identity that confers upon her a role which gives her time with her children, removes confusion and conflicts regarding her priorities, and that complements her nature rather than being contradictory to it. This is alongside enjoying all the rights of citizenship. Isn’t this what ‘having it all’ really means?

Hope Not Hate #fundie patheos.com

How’s this for a little trip through the looking glass? In Great Britain, the “anti-fascism” group Hope Not Hate has compiled a long list of “anti-Muslim” campaigners that includes… devout Muslims.

........

Nawaz says, the list

… conflates genuine … anti-Muslim bigots, with academic, journalistic and intellectual critics of Islam — including beleaguered ex-Muslim voices — and further, it throws reform-Muslim activists into the mix for good measure. In a plot twist befitting of a Monty Python sketch, one of those … was a headscarf-wearing, devout Muslim American woman called Raquel Saraswati. Raquel’s crime, for which her life was deemed to be worthy of putting at risk, was that she campaigns against honor-based violence.

Concerned Muslims exposed that absurdity, and Hope Not Hate took Saraswati’s name off the list, casting doubt on the rigor and thoughtfulness with which it was compiled in the first place. Other Muslims remain:

[T]he authors kept others such as an Egyptian Muslim Koran exegete, and reform campaigner Tawfik Hamid, as well as right-leaning American Muslim Zuhdi Jasser.

Nawaz correctly points out that

Hope Not Hate cannot escape the fact that there are people in their list who are also listed by some of the world’s most determined terrorists, who want them dead for the very same reason — daring to criticize Islam. …

By being included on the same list as genuine anti-Muslim bigots, any Muslim, and any other intellectual for that matter, who wishes to hold a serious and genuine conversation about Islam and its place in today’s age, is smeared by association, and is intimidated from expressing themselves from fear of being labelled a racist or bigot.

Nawaz Sharif, Abdul Wali Khan University students #fundie bbc.com

A university student in Pakistan accused of blasphemy against Islam has been killed by a mob of fellow students on campus, police say.

Many students have been arrested after the brutal attack in the northern city of Mardan, and the campus has been closed.

Reports suggest that two young men were accused of posting offensive content on Facebook. One survived with injuries.

[...]

The murdered student has been identified as Mashal Khan, who studied journalism. Some reports say he was shot, while others say he was beaten to death with planks.

"He was badly tortured after being shot at a close range... He was beaten with sticks, bricks and hands," senior police official Niaz Saeed told the AFP news agency.

Hundreds of people were involved, the officer said. Graphic video footage of the incident has emerged online.

Police had not been investigating the two accused men, nor had any case been filed against them, and the mob appeared to have acted on rumours, the Dawn newspaper reports.

Last month Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif voiced his support for a wide-ranging crackdown on blasphemous content on social media.

In a statement on his party's official Twitter account, he described blasphemy as an "unpardonable offence".

An official at Abdul Wali Khan University who spoke on condition of anonymity said Mr Khan was disliked by other students for his liberal and secular views.

At least 65 people have been murdered in Pakistan after being accused of blasphemy since 1990, a recent think tank report said.

A Pakistani court has sentenced to death a man who allegedly committed blasphemy on Facebook, a prosecutor said, in the first such case involving social media.

The conviction of Taimoor Raza, 30, came after a high-profile crackdown against blasphemy on social media by the government of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

Blasphemy is a highly sensitive topic in Muslim-majority Pakistan, where insulting the Prophet Muhammad is a capital crime for which dozens are sitting on death row. Even mere accusations are enough to spark mass uproar and mob justice.

Shafiq Qureshi, public prosecutor in Bahawalpur, south of provincial capital Lahore, said Raza was convicted for allegedly making derogatory remarks against Prophet Muhammad, his wives and companions.

"An anti-terrorism court of Bahawalpur has awarded him the death sentence," Qureshi told Reuters news agency, adding: "It is the first-ever death sentence in a case that involves social media."

It is rare for a counterterrorism court to hear blasphemy cases but Raza's trial fell under this category because his charge sheet included counterterrorism offences linked to hate speech.

Qureshi said Raza was arrested after playing blasphemous and hate speech material on his phone at a bus stop in Bahawalpur, where a counterterrorism officer arrested him and confiscated his phone.

The material obtained from the phone led to Raza's conviction, he added.

"The trial was conducted in Bahawapur jail in tight security," Qureshi said.

Qureshi added that Raza belongs to the minority Shia community and in court he accused of spreading "hate speech" against the Deobandi sect, which adheres to a strict school of Sunni Islam.

Several other violent incidents linked to blasphemy accusations have alarmed human rights groups and activists in recent months.

Police are currently investigating over 20 students and some faculty members in connection with the killing of Mashal Khan, a student who was beaten to death on April following a dorm debate about religion - an attack that shocked the country.

Since then, parliament has discussed adding safeguards to the blasphemy laws, a move seen as groundbreaking in Pakistan where political leaders have been assassinated for even discussing changes.

As Raza's blasphemy conviction was under the counterterrorism court, he will be able to appeal his sentence in the High Court and later in the Supreme Court.

There have been at least 71 people murdered in connection with blasphemy allegations in Pakistan since 1990, according to an Al Jazeera tally.

Chief Minister Mahmood Khan #fundie atimes.com

Pakistan province bans males from all-girl schools

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province’s chief minister has banned males from going into female educational institutions across the region

A province in Pakistan that was once a Taliban stronghold has placed restrictions on gender integration in educational institutions and banned males from working with female students.

On Sunday, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province’s chief minister Mahmood Khan enforced an Islamic ethos by banning males from entering female educational institutions across the province. He also restricted all male guests and banned media coverage at events at girls’ schools.

Ziauddin Yousafzai, the father of Nobel laurate Malala Yousafzai, tweeted: “Dear PM @ImranKhanPTI, Is this the “Change” and “Naya {new} Pakistan” you promised us? Institutionalization of Talibanization?! “No male minister, MNAs, MPAs & officers shall be invited to the girls’ schools as Chief Guests. Entry … strictly banned”

Liberals, academics and moderates criticized the bans, saying the move was politically motivated to appease religious forces amid the fast depleting popularity of the government.

“Religion is a tool that Pakistani politicians use frequently to further their ambitions and just as often to cover up for their financial or other crimes. The out-of-the-blue announcement by KP’s chief minister banning males from entering all-girls’ schools is certainly despicable and stupid,” Pervez Hoodbhoy, a Pakistani nuclear physicist, activist, columnist and a distinguished professor at the Forman Christian College and the Quaid-e-Azam University told Asia Times.

He said it left one wondering what had motivated the chief minister.

“Is the man just a run-of-the-mill fanatic who thinks women should never be seen or heard or is his newfound holiness connected with his dubious past?” he asked. He recalled that in 2014 the Peshawar High Court had removed him from the position of provincial minister on charges of embezzlement and corruption.

“Unfortunately crookedness and professed piety are known to get along famously well in Islamic Pakistan,” he added.

Chief Minister Mahmood Khan, while banning gender integration in girls’ schools, also directed the education department to discourage the publicity of social, literary, sports and annual day activities of female students on social and mainstream media.

By doing so, he claimed, girls would get an education “in the true spirit of social, culture and Islamic values” in the province. The advisor to the chief minister, Zia Ullah Khan Bangash, who passed on the chief executive’s instructions, was not available for comment despite Asia Times’ repeated attempts.

“The founding father, Muhammad Ali Jinnah, had no qualms in involving his sister Fathma Jinnah in the political struggle for Pakistan in 1947 and his party men used to honor her as a colleague without gender discrimination,” Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) senator Pervaiz Rasheed told Asia Times.

He said Jinnah’s ideology and vision needed to be followed. Jinnah, he pointed out, always stood for gender, racial, sectarian and linguistic integration.

“Every citizen irrespective of his or her sexual categorization has equal rights and obligations. The constitution does not allow discrimination because of sex, creed, sect, color, language and race,” the veteran politician said.

PTI chairperson Imran Khan, who is known to be soft on the Taliban, demanded reproachment with the Islamist group and called for the provision of offices in Pakistan for their leadership. Khan’s opponents, including the leader of the right-wing nationalist Awami National Party (ANP), called him “Taliban Khan.”

The spokesperson for the ANP, Zahid Khan, when contacted by Asia Times asked what else could be expected from a man who was an ardent supporter of the Taliban.

A senior government official, who asked not be identified, said the ban on the entry of males at girls’ schools was initially enforced at the primary and middle level. It will be extended to the higher level once the order is fully implemented and the system is purged of “un-Islamic tenets.”

The chief minister, he said, instructed the province’s education department that “the schools should invite female dignitaries as chief guests in the sports and other functions.”

Unlike the general perception in educated and liberal circles, which do not see eye to eye with the provincial government on the gender discrimination issue, the lower middle class, whose children study in government schools, are quite content with the order.

“It’s a very good decision and hopefully our girls would be feeling more secure and happy now,” said Muhammad Aslam, who runs a grocery shop in the Tehkal area of Peshawar. Two of his daughters were studying at a local girls’ primary school.

Firdous Khan works in a shop on the main road in Peshawar city and has two daughters going to school. He said the ban would benefit the school-going girls as they would get more freedom to participate in the functions and sports events.

“One should realize that CM instructions would help preserve the KP-specific cultural and religious values,” he said.

Kris phoned in to discuss her views on science during a conversation about gene editing techniques and using animal organs in human.

Kris rang in to say that she believed that we are built in the image of God and that humans are special "because our brains are higher" and that humans are in a different category from animals.

Kris said that she didn't believe we evolved and that the "big bang theory has been disputed."

When Maajid explained what Darwin's theory of evolution Kris said she didn't believe that "because how come the monkeys haven't learnt to drive buses?"

When Maajid asked if Kris was opposed to science she said she wasn't, but the theory of evolution was "making God a liar because he said that he created the world in six days."

The Channel 4 documentary also had troubling echoes with one of the darkest passages in modern European history: the Third Reich. Nazi propagandists aided the regime’s policies by publicly identifying a group for exclusion by inciting hatred against them and justifying their pariah status to the populace. This was done both crudely and subtly. Such propagandists laid the groundwork for the Nuremberg Laws which were significant anti-Jewish statutes enacted in 1935.[3] Propaganda together with such laws were key to creating ‘the other’: a subhuman class, not worthy of mercy, equal to vermin, requiring extermination for the preservation of the wider German population. Phillips’ language is alarmingly similar. For instance, in the Times, Phillips says Muslims are ‘not like us’.[4] It is for the reader to decide if there are parallels with Nazi propaganda and more recent British right-wing media productions and articles. For those who say I am over reacting or sensationalising, have a look at some of the comments referring to a “civil war ”.[5] Phillips and his co-Islamophobes have created this hostile environment for anti-Muslim bigotry to thrive and gain dinner table acceptability.

One question that seems not to have been asked about the documentary is the motive. Why did he make it? I do not pretend to know Mr Phillips’ mind, but it seems to me a clue was in Anjum Anwar’s reference to school’s ethnic diversity. The proposal, it seems, is for children to be classified by the faith of their parents and for Muslim children to be compelled to attend school with children from other faiths. So there it is. The real objective: our children. David Cameron hinted at it when he spoke of the ‘struggle of our generation’. Prevent, television productions such as those from Phillips and Quilliam foundation statements are all designed to cut off Muslim children from the core tenants of the Islamic faith. The objective is to create a new generation of Muslims; those who are Muslim by name but will bear little resemblance to normative Islam as was revealed by Allah (sub?anahu wa ta?ala). It may take some time but, ultimately, the likely aim is to create a British revised Qur’an to be read only in English and only in government sanctioned mosques; to have lesbian and gay Imams leading weekly prayers; to have ?ijabs replaced by uncovering and to break fasts with a pint of ale. Paradise and Hellfire will only be allegorical and the concept of God will be reduced to humanity’s love for each other. Nothing will be sacred. Nothing will be left without ‘reformation’. I seek refuge in Allah from all this. This is a battle for the souls of our children.

The September 11th attacks were the greatest sham ever perpetrated by the Illuminati. Nothing they had done before that day could compare, not even the moon landings or JFK's assassination. Unlike those events, personal technology and multitudes upon multitudes of eyewitnesses required the utmost secrecy as well as detailed authenticity.

To pull off the destruction of the World Trade Center, the Illuminati needed the finest special effects experts available, people who could make crashes, explosions, and the collapsing of buildings. This was a tall order even for this ultra-powerful secret society. That's why they turned to their lackeys in Hollywood. It wasn't the first time. In 1969, the NWO turned to Stanley Kubrick to fake the moon landings, and his direction of the footage was brilliant if not for a few flaws. However, this hoax was going to require a much more compelling blitz of visual effects because the whole event would unfold live across the world and in broad daylight. Choosing the perfect director for such explosive mayhem was a difficult choice.

The Illuminati had several candidates in mind. George Lucas received consideration, but his lackluster efforts in the Star Wars prequels eliminated him from the fold. Another possibility was James Cameron. His work on "Titanic" was very impressive, though he was passed over due to his lack of expertise with massive explosions. Roland Emmerich was another potential director for his excellence in filming "Independence Day." Unfortunately for the secret order, he declined the dastardly project. That led the Illuminati to their next choice, and that was Michael Bay. His work on "Armageddon" revealed that he had a terrific aptitude for creating large, explosive scenes and the poor reception of his latest movie, "Pearl Harbor," meant that he was a director who could be manipulated.

For those doubters out there, Bay was very much on the inside of the Illuminati and its 9/11 plans. When he filmed "Armageddon", he placed an obvious warning in the opening sequence. As meteorites blitzed downtown New York City, they struck the World Trade Center towers in exactly the same spots where the planes crashed several years later, and Bay ensured that the last shot in the scene was of the Twin Towers burning just as they were on 9/11 before they both fell. This is proof that the director knew that something big was brewing in the secret order and that he was in on it. There is no way that that scene of the burning towers and the reality of September 11th was a coincidence. He even managed to show people plummeting to their deaths from imploding skyscrapers, and there's this haunting quote from a cab driver saying "This is New York. Anything can happen, terrorists, bombs, traffic jams." Sure Michael, keep telling people that all of this was only coincidence.

Given only three months to orchestrate the Illuminati's plan, Bay worked tirelessly with demolition teams and pyrotechnic experts. In exchange for his services, Bay was promised the "Transformers" films in which he could pay homage to one of his idols, Kubrick, by fictionalizing the moon landing as being part of an even greater conspiracy. In fact, all three "Transformers" films present a steady stream of references and symbols to the Illuminati. They were just Bay's way of saying thanks for being given a chance to revitalize his stagnant career.

On September 11, 2001, all of the pieces came together to create the greatest special effects sequence of all time. Bay delivered masterfully with the explosions that were vital in convincing the world that the attack was real and in no way a controlled demolition. Just as he had in "Armageddon" and "Pearl Harbor," the action director created eye-dazzling fireballs that compelled and horrified his audiences. Until now, his efforts went uncredited except for those in the Illuminati who rewarded him with bigger budgets and better opportunities for his future films.

With a little luck, Michael Bay might have a change of heart and decide to expose the Illuminati. He may do this through symbolism in his movies just as Kubrick did or he might out them when they're least suspecting it. As Bay's new movies roll into theaters, we will be watching for these subtle hints and look forward to publishing conclusive findings that will prove once and for all who helped the secret order make the 9/11 attacks look so convincing.
