In March 2009 the people of Luton gathered in the streets of their hometown to show support for the returning soldiers of the Royal Anglian Regiment who had just completed a tour of duty in Helmand Province. The gathered crowd represented a cross section of cultures, communities and political persuasions. Many of these spectators were opposed to the war in Afghanistan but supported the courage and commitment of the individual soldiers nevertheless. One of these people was a local 27 year old tanning salon owner named Steven Yaxley-Lennon. Read the rest of this entry »

Before I begin this article proper, I’m obliged to point out that I don’t agree with everything Tommy Robinson says or with the entirety of his positions and opinions. This rather obvious disclaimer seems to be a unique prerequisite when writing or speaking in defence of Mr Robinson in a way that it isn’t for anyone else. The fact that there isn’t a single person alive or dead that I agree with 100% on every topic under the sun really goes without saying, but in the case of Tommy Robinson, it seems that expressing this explicitly is the standard mandatory requirement.
So let’s get this out of the way; I don’t agree with everything Tommy Robinson says. But…
Courtney (CJ) Werleman is an extraordinarily deceitful, vindictive, unethical, galling, attention seeking, spiteful charlatan masquerading as an expert.
He is an Australian writer & social commentator who deliberately misrepresents the arguments of others for the purposes of erecting a strawman that he can then pummel relentlessly. CJ’s charming tactics include ascribing positions to his opponents that they do not hold, attributing arguments to them that they they’ve never made and holding them partially responsible for the actions of murderers.
373 people have been killed and 496 critically wounded around the globe just this week in acts of Islamic terrorism.
Yesterday a Muslim gunman stormed into a Free Speech debate in Copenhagen and opened fire killing 1 man and injuring 4. He then shot a Jewish man in the head outside a synagogue before being killed himself.
One of the topics of this debate in Denmark was another act of Islamic terrorism committed last month whereby two Muslims stormed the offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo and gunned down the staff in revenge for ‘Islamophobic’ cartoons whilst shouting “Allahu Akbar” and “we have avenged the Prophet.”
*NOTE: Irritatingly enough, since writing the below article I have become aware of a similarly themed essay written by Robert Spencer. Some of the points I make are covered more comprehensively in Spencer’s piece and some are covered more fully here. I therefore offer the below as a companion piece to Spencers’.*
It’s very rare that I find myself unable to agree with a single statement or position of the more vocal Islamic spokespeople in the media. As much as I dislike the man, I sometimes find myself nodding along to some of George Galloway’s less extreme utterances and amused by his bolshie appearances on news programs, occasionally to the point that I momentarily forget his obscene walkout of a debate due to his opponent’s nationality, his support for fascistic tyrants the world over and his delivery of finance to the leader of a foreign terrorist organisation.
I even have some vague sympathy for certain views held by abusive Islamists like Asghar Bukhari and his ilk at the Muslim Public Affairs Committee; they wear their hearts on their sleeves and at least root their bullshit in what some could conceivably view as legitimate political grievances.
Mohammed Ansar, on the other hand, is a different story all together.
This article is essentially a response to a blog post written by Asghar Bukhari, co-founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Committee UK. His article can be viewed here:
To extensively dissect everything wrong with Bukhari’s essay is seriously beyond the scope of my time and inclination, but I will attempt to address the two main focus points of his article which are as follows: the motivations of Michael Adebolajo (the more outspoken of the two men who murdered British soldier Lee Rigby in Woolwich) and the role that Western Foreign Policy played in inciting him to commit this murder.
