Thousands of supporters of “Palestinian” jihad sign petition to ban Joan Rivers from UK for being pro-Israel

RiversIf the craven, cowardly and clueless British authorities accede to this demand, Joan Rivers is welcome to speak at our AFDI rally in defense of Israel and persecuted religious minorities this Sunday in Union Square in New York City. Confirm your attendance here.

I wouldn’t be at all surprised if the dhimmi Brits banned Rivers. After all, when they banned Pamela Geller and me, it was later revealed that someone (name redacted in the material we received) on the Home Office’s massive team investigating Geller and me wrote that the subject profiles that had been prepared on both of us repeatedly cited our “pro-Israeli views” as part of the case against us. The writer argued that this material be removed, lest Geller and Spencer “argue publically that their exclusion is on the basis of their support for Israel.” And it was largely removed, but this letter remained as testimony to the fact that instrumental in the British government’s consideration of whether or not to ban us was the fact, considered by the government to be a reason to ban us, that we supported Israel — so determined are the British authorities to appease anti-Semitic Leftist and Islamic supremacist agitation groups.

Britain, in sum, by stifling opposition to jihad terror and Jew-hatred, has let both run wild, and thus has sealed its fate: it is in its last days as a free society, and faces a future of violence on the streets and Sharia oppression, courtesy Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, David Cameron, Theresa May, and the rest.

“Pro-Gaza petition to ban Joan Rivers’ UK tour,” Al Arabiya, August 15, 2014:

Thousands of people have signed a petition to halt U.S. television host Joan River’s upcoming tour in Britain after her remarks about the crisis in Gaza, British newspaper The Times reported Thursday.

The petition was created by Dipu Ahad, a Labour councillor from Newcastle, has been signed by more than 20,000 people so far.

It is available on and urges event organizers to cancel all her upcoming UK tour dates.

Last week, Rivers, a comedian, made headlines when she said Palestinians “deserve to be dead” after she was approached by a reporter working for U.S. entertainment website TMZ asking her opinion on the more than 2,000 Palestinians who have been killed by Israeli airstrikes on the Gaza Strip.

“They started it. We now don’t count who’s dead. You’re dead, you deserve to be dead… Don’t you dare make me feel sad about that… You don’t get out, then you know you’re an idiot,” Rivers said.

The television host later said that her comments were taken out of context.

Ahad said that Rivers was “not welcome in Britain.”

Celebrities have expressed varying opinions on the conflict, with some expressing support for Israel and others decrying the deaths of Palestinians.

    funny how you never see a petition by “moderate muslims” to ban the islamic hate preachers coming in that they claim give muslims a bad name.

    • zulU says

      From the article:

      Where is the mass outcry against the systematic killing of the Iraqi Yazidis, the deadly harassment of Christians and the mindless destruction of their churches?

      Where are the co-ordinated protests against the Islamic State? Where are the popular calls for an end to organised genocide by Sunni Muslim militants in Iraq?

      This is pure hypocrisy and double standards from British Muslims. Only last week, more than 200,000 people — a large proportion of them British Muslims — took to the streets of London and Manchester to protest against Israel.

      The Jewish state was denounced as a pariah, its military actions in Gaza condemned as disproportionate. Yet there has been nothing like this level of justified outrage over the senseless savagery of the Islamic State in Iraq.

        This is Muslims telling us loud and clear with their defeaning silence what they really think of this and they’re obviously ok with it. This after all, is being done in their favour which allows them to just move in.

        With Mohamad being officially the number one newborn boy’s name in England, I daresay, England is officially finished as England and they did it to themselves.

        When the so-called “hooligans” rise up to try and retain any part of jolly ol England, the police and army will be waiting to put them down.

      • David Barrett says

        If you look at the overall response in Europe you will see the trend – its what we call anti-Semitism or in simpler terms JEW HATRED.
        They are not concerned about anything else . They are consumed by their own lies and stupidity. BUT they are very dangerous . If action is not taken – serious action -then God help you. The signs are there. Canada my be taking the correct step but I suspect too late.

    • Beagle says

      The BBC article is more honest on the theological justifications for jihad. Not the DM’s best effort to say the least. Yet another example of why Jihad Watch is so important if you want to have an understanding of modern and historical jihad.

      Your pull quotes are fine, but scroll down.

      • Beagle says

        This, from a JW perspective, is the meat of the article:

        But the reference to 72 virgins in paradise has absolutely no basis in the Koran, or in authentic Islamic theology. It comes instead from a dubious hadith — or prophetic tradition — that was produced three centuries after Mohammed’s death.
        In fact, militant jihadism has no religious legitimacy at all. The zealots might like to see themselves as devout believers, but in fact they are profoundly un-Islamic.
        The Koran specifically declares that Muslims are allowed to take up arms for only two reasons: either because of religious persecution or because they are being driven from their homes.
        But it is laughable to pretend that either of these conditions applies in contemporary Britain. The only Muslims in the UK I know who have been evicted from their homes are those who have failed to keep up with their rent or mortgage payments.
        In the same vein, there is not the slightest justification in the Koran for the persecution of non-believers, most especially Christians.
        Indeed, Chapter 109, verse 6 specifically confirms that everyone has a right to believe as they please and in Chapter 2, verse 256, Islam’s holy text says that there is no compulsion in religion. Therefore no Muslim can demand that anyone should be forcibly converted to Islam — precisely what the barbaric Islamic State has been doing in northern Iraq at the point of a rifle.
        Furthermore, Chapter 22, verse 40 states that all places of worship, including Christian churches and Jewish synagogues, should be respected as houses of God, the very opposite of the IS campaign of callous destruction and religious intimidation of all non-Muslim minorities.
        The words of the Koran are being twisted and perverted to serve the jihadists’ ends. In Britain, the silence of the moderate Muslim majority is only serving as an ally of bigotry and injustice.

        Any theological ‘debate’ about jihad which in no way addresses a single ayah in Sura Eight or Nine is useless. That’s what the mujahideen are reading and quoting, later suras which abrogate the peaceful bits. And, really?, “no compulsion in religion” while the IS is rampaging around. If only they’re read the Quran. Puh-leeze.

        • Brian Ozzy says

          JW is an idiot! Where do these suppossed professional journalists get their background material, from the local Iman? The Koran does not mention 72 virgins that is true but it does continually espouse the availability of doe eyed forever virgins who have no body secretions, flesh so transparent one can see their bones and always available while beautiful little boys serve wine from the rivers of the stuff gushing close by.

          Bukhari:V4B54N476-544 “The Prophet said, ‘In Paradise they will not urinate, relieve nature, spit, or have any nasal secretions. Everyone will have two virgins who will be so beautiful and transparent the bones of their legs will be seen through their flesh.'”

          Qur’an 56:33 “Unending, and unforbidden, exalted beds, and maidens incomparable. We have formed them in a distinctive fashion and made them virgins, loving companions matched in age, for the sake of those of the right hand.” [Another translation reads:] “On couches or thrones raised high. Verily, We have created them (maidens) incomparable: We have formed their maidens as a special creation, and made them to grow a new growth. We made them virgins – pure and undefiled, lovers, matched in age.”

          Militant jihadism is a constant call right through the abysmal mess that is the koran and even more in the hadiths.

          “War against the infidel goes on in perpetuity, until “all chaos ceases, and all religion belongs to Allah” (Koran 8:39), is just one such verse. The footnote in the koran leaves no doubt about exactly what jihad signifies:

          Noble Qur’an:2:190 Footnote: “Jihad is holy fighting in Allah’s Cause with full force of numbers and weaponry. It is given the utmost importance in Islam and is one of its pillars. By Jihad Islam is established, Allah’s Word is made superior (which means only Allah has the right to be worshiped), and Islam is propagated.
          By abandoning Jihad Islam is destroyed and Muslims fall into an inferior position; their honor is lost, their lands are stolen, their rule and authority vanish. Jihad is an obligatory duty in Islam on every Muslim. He who tries to escape from this duty, or does not fulfill this duty, dies as a hypocrite.”

          Here is what a more believable source says about the ridiculous “no compulsion in religion” verse.

          Allah says: “There is no compulsion in religion”, meaning: do not force anyone to embrace Islam, because it is clear and its proofs and evidences are manifest. Whoever Allah guides and opens his heart to Islam has indeed embraced it with clear evidence. Whoever Allah misguides blinds his heart and has set a seal on his hearing and a covering on his eyes cannot embrace Islam by force…hence Allah revealed this verse. But, this verse is abrogated by the verse of “fighting…Therefore, all people of the world should be called to Islam. If anyone of them refuses to do so, or refuses to pay the Jizya they should be fought till they are killed. This is the meaning of compulsion. In the Sahih, the Prophet said: “Allah wonders at those people who will enter Paradise in chains”, meaning prisoners brought in chains to the Islamic state, then they embrace Islam sincerely and become righteous, and are entered among the people of Paradise.[1]
          Tafsir of Ibn Kathir, Al-Firdous Ltd., London, 1999: First Edition, Part 3, pp. 37-38

          As for allowing other religions –

          Qur’an 9:33 “He has sent His Messenger (Muhammad) with guidance and the Religion of Truth (Islam) to make it superior over all religions, even though the disbelievers detest (it).”

          Qur’an 5:86 “Those who reject Islam and are disbelievers, denying our Signs and Revelations – they shall be the owners of the Hell Fire.”

          Qur’an 21:06 “Not one of the populations which We destroyed believed: will these believe? …So we saved whom We pleased, and We destroyed the disbelievers.”

          Verse after verse calls the lie to this blokes whitewashing ignorance. Why won’t these people read some of Islam’s poisonous tomes. It is all spelt out without any shame.

        • gravenimage says

          Brian Ozzy, I am unclear on what you mean by “JW is an idiot”—most people at Jihad Watch are well aware of the Islamic sources which you have posted.

      Correct…the dhimmi Cameron prosecutes anyone who reads Winston Churchill in public…He will act on behalf of the millions of Muslims who are physically afraid of 5 foot 100 lb 80 year old Joan Rivers….cowardice thy name is islam

    • SpiritOf1683 says

      They’d have also banned William Gladstone as well, especially after he held up a Koran in the Houses Of Commons, called it an ‘accursed book’, then said “As long as there’s this book, there will never be peace”.

  3. carlos says

    Everyone knows that nowadays britons are a bolockless specimens, apart that one must understand that uk has went over the humiliation of beeing defeat in the late 50’s by a would yet to be Israeli Army. Putting together these two undisputed truth of course britons can’t stand Israel. Long live ISRAEL!

  4. Charli Main says

    Ahad—- I don´t want YOU and the rest of the Muslim vermin infesting Britain here either. A total ban on all MUSLIM immigration into Britain is long overdue.

  5. The Vilest Of Creatures says

    Dipu Ahad is the voice for WHO IS and IS NOT welcome in Britian. Kinda like somebody in the Saudi Arabian government named Larry Farnsworth telling us who IS and ISN’T welcome in Saudi Arabia for depending on how they feel about the conflict in Northern Ireland.

  6. Urbanus infidelous says

    Perfectly ok for the likes of choudary and galloway to spew their filth and parade it on the streets of Britain with their demented, delusional claims. That’s ok, because the lefttarded dhimmis in cahoots with the medieval death cult want their vote to terrorise and undermine our culture given any opportunity. Don’t ya just feel an uprising in the making? What about a counter petition voting Joan in. Can that democratic principle be applied here? Or, are we now more of a theocracy a la death cult and not a democracy. It’s all part of the global jihad plan (passive here) for domination. Smell the sauce

  7. Matthew Roberts says

    I am afraid Britain is finished. Destroyed by immigrant multiculturalism, political correctness and cowardly political elites. The indigenous people must also take some blame as they have shown no resistance to being demographically replaced or to the savagery and aggressive demands of Muslims in the country. If you do not feel that your culture is worth fighting for you will lose it. Shame on all of them. They deserve what is coming!

    • Beagle says

      The politicians and the willfully blind may deserve it, but not future generations, children, or those who have been trying to resist the PC multicult insanity.

  8. chrisleo says

    She probably won’t get in because she was the first to claim that Michelle Obama is in reality a man! We don’t want her kind in our luvly cosy multi-culti Britain, she’ll probably tell us the truth that Cameron is in fact a testicle-less woman, something we’ve long suspected.

  9. duh_swami says

    It’s obvious that Joan is a danger to the Nation and the public. Don’t worry, the UK elite will keep her out, and the public safe. Allah willing, and he always is…

  10. Stuart Smith says

    I saw Joan Rivers was coming to my country U.K. I would like to see her but cost, me being not so well, and where the shows are in relation to where I live, I decided not to go see her, with this petition I am now going to put the effort in to go see her show.
    I have an arthritic problem that makes doing this sort of thing difficult for me, but now I am going to see her.
    Certainly do my best to get there.

  11. SpiritOf1683 says

    There are some more who would find themselves on the ban list for obvious reasons:

    “Every practicing Muslim is a terrorist. It is what has been hammered into his head from cradle to grave, and it is what his religion expects from him.” – Yoshiro Sagamori.

    “This religion (Mahometanism), altogether contrived for the shedding of blood, delights much in rites and ceremonies, and would be believed without all liberty of enquiry thereinto.” – Hugo Grotius (1583-1645)

    “In the seventh century of the Christian era, a wandering Arab of the lineage of Hagar [i.e., Muhammad], the Egyptian, combining the powers of transcendent genius, with the preternatural energy of a fanatic, and the fraudulent spirit of an impostor, proclaimed himself as a messenger from Heaven, and spread desolation and delusion over an extensive portion of the earth. Adopting from the sublime conception of the Mosaic law, the doctrine of one omnipotent God; he connected indissolubly with it, the audacious falsehood, that he was himself his prophet and apostle. Adopting from the new Revelation of Jesus, the faith and hope of immortal life, and of future retribution, he humbled it to the dust by adapting all the rewards and sanctions of his religion to the gratification of the sexual passion. He poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy; and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind. THE ESSENCE OF HIS DOCTRINE WAS VIOLENCE AND LUST: TO EXALT THE BRUTAL OVER THE SPIRITUAL PART OF HUMAN NATURE (Adams’s capital letters)… Between these two religions, thus contrasted in their characters, a war of twelve hundred years has already raged. The war is yet flagrant… While the merciless and dissolute dogmas of the false prophet shall furnish motives to human action, there can never be peace upon earth, and goodwill towards men.” – John Quincy Adams

    Ever since the religion of Islam appeared in the world, the espousers of it…have been as wolves and tigers to all other nations, rending and tearing all that fell into their merciless paws, and grinding them with their iron teeth; that numberless cities are raised from the foundation, and only their name remaining; that many countries, which were once as the garden of God, are now a desolate wilderness; and that so many once numerous and powerful nations are vanished from the earth! Such was, and is at this day, the rage, the fury, the revenge, of these destroyers of human kind. – John Wesley

    I studied the Quran a great deal. I came away from that study with the conviction that by and large there have been few religions in the world as deadly to men as that of Muhammad. So far as I can see, it is the principal cause of the decadence so visible today in the Muslim world and, though less absurd than the polytheism of old, its social and political tendencies are in my opinion more to be feared, and I therefore regard it as a form of decadence rather than a form of progress in relation to paganism itself.” – Alexis de Tocqueville

    The Greeks who triumphed at Marathon and Salamis did a work without which the world would have been deprived of the social value of Plato and Aristotle, of Aeschylus, Herodotus, and Thucydides. The civilization of Europe, America, and Australia exists today at all only because of the victories of civilized man over the enemies of civilization, because the victories stretching through the centuries from the days of Miltiades and Themistocles to those of Charles Martel in the eighth century and those of John Sobieski in the seventeenth century.”

    “During the thousand years that included the careers of the Frankish soldier and the Polish king, the Christians of Asia and Africa proved unable to wage successful war with the Moslem conquerors; and in consequence Christianity practically vanished from the two continents; and today nobody can find in them any “social values” whatever, in the sense in which we use the words, so far as the sphere of Mohammedan influence. There are such “social values” today in Europe, America, and Australia only because during those thousand years the Christians of Europe possessed the warlike power to do what the Christians of Asia and Africa had failed to do – that is, to beat back the Moslem invader.” – Theodore Roosevelt

    “It has always seemed to me possible, and even probable, that there would be a resurrection of Islam and that our sons or our grandsons would see the renewal of that tremendous struggle between the Christian culture and what has been for more than a thousand years its greatest opponent.”

    “The suggestion that Islam may re-arise sounds fantastic – but this is only because men are always powerfully affected by the immediate past: – one might say that they are blinded by it….”

    “But not so very long ago, less than a hundred years before the Declaration of Independence…. Vienna was almost taken and only saved by the Christian army under the command of the King of Poland on a date that ought to be among the most famous in history: September 11th, 1683.” – Hilaire Belloc

    “…we all tiptoe around the sensibilities of medieval fanatics, we take pains not to offend ululating fossils who cheer suicide bombers, stone their loved ones for sexual missteps, we pussyfoot to protect the delicate psyche of people who amputate hands of petty thieves, issue fatwas on novelists and cover up their hapless wives and sisters to the eyeballs” – George Jonas in his book “Reflections on Islam”.

    Quite a ban list there.

  12. dumbledoresarmy says

    I saw the clip – the “epic rant” – that the usual suspects are so offended about, not long after she did it.

    Whoo-ee! She let rip. She gave the idiot interviewera piece of her mind, and then some. And all true. She’s a better military thinker than a lot of idiots in uniform all the way across the western world.

    If anyone here *hasn’t* seen it, then make sure you *do*, because it’s worth it.

  13. gravenimage says

    Dipu Ahad is a nasty piece of work. He has sneered at the EDL as “whites” and “thick”.

    He has flown the Palestinian flag at the Newcastle City Center during a pro-Hamas rally, and was gloating when he found that he would face no disciplinary measures as a result.

    Here’s the really sick thing—this genocidal Mohammedan is also *chair of the Holocaust Memorial Day Committee*. This meretricious creep must be laughing his *ss off.

    Luckily, at least one person is protesting this grotesque conflict of interest.

    Unfortunately, every one of the replies, whether from Muslims (lots of Muslim names) or dhimmi tools, is critical of the author for daring to point this out.

  14. dumbledoresarmy says

    So far, what we have is a report from Al-Arabiya. And we all know that everything that Mohammedans say can be relied upon…??

    Has there been anything about this in the *British* press?

    How big is the upcoming tour, and how high is Joan Rivers’ profile in the UK? (That is: how popular is she?)

    In any case, her British fans – of which there are quite a few here, as I see – now know about the nasty petition and should have a jolly good try at *countering* it.

  15. dumbledoresarmy says

    Thought for the day.

    I see a great many posters, in this thread who seem to be “assuming the sale”.

    That is: they appear to take it for granted that every Briton lurking or posting here should simply give up and prepare to leave, die fighting, or submit to Islam; NOTHING can be done to save Britain and presumably they think it would be no use even trying. Which is, I think, not very helpful for morale, and very ego-boosting for the megalomaniacal mohammedans who lurk and post here.

    But: what are the doom-sayers going to say if so be that the whining mohammedan’s petition is ignored, and Ms Rivers’ tour of the UK goes ahead as planned, without incident??

  16. BC says

    Sometimes I despair of JW there is such a lot of nonsense appearing here.
    A lot of ridiculous comments as well.
    The population of UK is about 63 million plus. You are getting in a panic over 20.000 people on a petition. that is the size of a village. It is .0317 % of the population. Of course a Muslim can get a few thousand people to sign a petition which is against a Jewish person, especially using social media. I bet a large % of them arre Muslims.
    No doubt the UK govt will deny her access on the grounds that her security will be an issue and lots of demos will appear everywhere she goes. However it will not be as a result of the petition.

  17. Elisheva14 says

    Michael Savage was also banned from the UK. They are afraid of anyone who promotes the TRUTH.

  18. SpiritOf1683 says

    So that makes you Selena with a full frontal lobotomy. You’re nothing but a classless terrorist-loving troll.
