If an Islamic supremacist ever takes responsibility for his own acts of violence and hatred, or admits those done by any other Muslim, I will faint dead away from the shock. "‘My only crime was to be Muslim,’" from the Oldham Evening Chronicle, June 22 (thanks to Twostellas):
DESPITE being warned by trial judge Mushtaq Khokhar not to reveal his previous convictions to the jury, Shabir Ahmed ignored the advice.
Throughout the trial Ahmed ranted at jurors that his convictions in the child sex scandal had been a “conspiracy by the police, English Defence League (EDL), British National Party (BNP) and social services” and added that he had instructed his barrister, Simon Nichol, to appeal the sentence.
Ahmed said: “I will never accept that verdict here or tomorrow.
“Myself along with my countrymen were convicted — this was conspiracy by the police. It had nothing to do with justice.
“Let’s pick on the weakest segment of the community — the Asian community. We were all innocent.
“This was the Rochdale grooming case. The girls were already selling their bodies. No Pakistani went knocking on the doors in Heywood saying ‘have you got any young girls, can we have sex with them?’”...
“Then all of a sudden they concocted something else and I got charged. My only crime was to be Muslim — not of the majority race,” he added....
What race is Muslim?
