Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and a number of his MPs attended the launch of “Islamophobia awareness month.”
Another instance of tolerance for the intolerable, in which a Western leader teams up with a hardcore Islamic supremacist group to shove “Islamophobia” propaganda down the throats of non-Muslims. The anti-Israel, pro-PLO terrorist-honouring Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and a number of his MPs attended the launch of “Islamophobia awareness month” with the group Muslim Engagement and Development (MEND).
The Henry Jackson Society recently found, in a special report, that MEND “claims to help British Muslims engage in the democratic process, but its leaders are detailed as opposing democracy in favour of sharia, having legitimised the killing of British troops, and promoting conspiracy theories about Islamist terror.” This pro-jihad group, like many others, has been highly influential in government and in the private sector.
One of the MPs who attended “Islamophobia awareness month” launch is Labour MP Naz Shah, who once retweeted a message telling the multitude of young British girls sexually violated by Muslim rape gangs to “shut up for the good of diversity.”
A year ago, the Bedfordshire Police force decided to have an “Islamophobia Awareness Month,” but ended up with egg on its face and had to delete its Twitter posts promoting it, after using a logo similar to a hand gesture popular with Islamic State jihadis.
“Corbyn and Labour MPs Launch ‘Islamophobia Month’ with ‘Extremist’ Mend Group”, by Liam Deacon, Breitbart, November 2, 2017:
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and a number of his MPs attended the launch of “Islamophobia awareness month” with the group Mend, which according to a new report promotes “extremist views”, harbours anti-Semites, and gives a platform to Islamist views.
Just days ago, a new report detailed Muslim Engagement and Development’s (Mend) extensive connections to radical and anti-Semitic groups and speakers, and listed examples of its leaders condoning attacks on British troops and praising al-Qaeda terrorists.
Mend has strongly opposed counter-terror laws and pro-Western Muslims, as well as “regularly host[ing] illiberal, intolerant and extremist Islamist speakers at public events”, the report by The Henry Jackson Society think tank explained.
Mr. Corbyn was joined by representatives of London’s police, fellow Labour MPs Naz Shah, Stephen Kinnock, Wes Streeting, Afzal Khan, and Kate Green, as well as Shakira Martin, president of the National Union of Students (NUS) at the event in parliament.
One of those in the audience was Imam Sulaiman Ghani, who has spoken in support of al-Qaeda terrorists, said homosexuality is “unnatural” and women should be “subservient,” and organised sectarian hate campaigns in London.
Jennifer Gerber, the director of Labour Friends of Israel, told the Jewish Chronicle it was “utterly unacceptable that Jeremy Corbyn last night chose to attend an event organised by a group which has repeatedly peddled myths about the power of the ‘Israeli lobby’ that play into classic antisemitic tropes”…….
