I thought this was stunning.
“POLICE wish to speak to this man after derogatory comments about Islam were made on a bus. The incident, described as a public order offence by police, allegedly happened on the 576 Halifax to Bradford bus, between 10pm and 10.20pm on Thursday, January 8.
The man is said to have got on the bus and sat directly behind an Asian man, before muttering his comments. (OMG – the utter bastard, right? – DV)
The suspect is described as white, (Erm, isn’ that racist?) aged 40 to 50, about 5ft 8ins tall, and was wearing a black woolly hat and black jacket that may have had a bit of red on it.”
So, Police resources are now being directed against someone who is alleged to have “muttered” something less than complimentary about Islam? This is a scandal. The complainants should have been politely dismissed by Police – we live in a society where we are free to say what we think.

Remember this story from a few weeks ago?
An American terrorism commentator has apologised for describing Birmingham as a “Muslim-only city” where non-Muslims “don’t go” during a Fox News interview. Steven Emerson told the channel that in London “Muslim religious police” beat “anyone who doesn’t dress according to Muslim, religious Muslim attire”. He later issued an apology for his “terrible error”.
Maybe there are more terrible things than that error?
Doctors at a hospital in Birmingham are having to deal with six girls a week who have suffered female genital mutilation (FGM), internal figures reveal. The Heartlands Hospital in the Midlands have had to deal with 1,500 cased of FGM over the past five years, despite the barbaric practise and facilitating being illegal in the UK. The hospital has a special clinic in its labour ward, one of a number which are necessary in areas with a high (sic) ethnic population in the UK.
Ah yes, about that “ethnic issue”..
Statistics from 2011 Census show more Muslim children than Christian growing up in Birmingham Of 278,623 youngsters, 97,099 were registered as Muslim compared with 93,828 as Christian.
Dunno about you but I would like to see the sort of invective directed against the Fox News contributor Steve Emerson also channeled against the SAVAGES cutting these young girls. So far, nothing.

The Obama White House never ceases to amaze. We now have a senior spokesman reveal that it does not consider the Taliban to be terrorists.
When pushed by ABC News’ Jon Karl as to how the the U.S.’s swap with the Taliban for Bowe Bergdahl is different from the Jordanian’s swap with ISIS for the release of Japanese prisoner Kenji Goto, Schultz explained that while ISIS is indeed a terrorist group, the Taliban is an “armed insurgency.”
So, ISIS are terrorists but the Taliban are not? Both set of Islamist savages torture, intimidate and murder, with Koran inspired terror as their propellor.
MEANWHILE…IN BREAKING NEWS…
A suicide bomber struck a funeral in Afghanistan for the victims of an earlierTaliban attack, killing 16 people and wounding 39, an Afghan official said. The attack took place in eastern Laghman province, according to the local governor’s spokesman, Sarhadi Zwak. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the bombing but the blame is likely to fall on the Taliban who have staged similar attacks in the past. Also, the bombing came on the heels of a spate of Taliban attacks across Afghanistan overnight and on Thursday morning that killed at least 17 people.
See the problem with the world view from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue?

This is most excellent news.
“The Obama administration, after days of mounting tension, signaled on Wednesday how angry it is with Israel that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accepted Republican leaders’ invitation to address Congress on Iran without consulting the White House.
The outrage the episode has incited within President Obama’s inner circle became clear in unusually sharp criticism by a senior administration official who said that the Israeli ambassador, Ron Dermer, who helped orchestrate the invitation, had repeatedly placed Mr. Netanyahu’s political fortunes above the relationship between Israel and the United States.”
If Obama doesn’t like it he can lump it. His Party has LOST Congress and the GOP has every right to invite Mr Netahnyahu to address it Of course there is that that pesky fact that Obama has proven to be far from a friend of Israel and his current romancing of Iran proves it.
I hope Netanyahu uses it to flag up Israel’s support for the USA in the ME whilst emphasising that Iran remains an existential threat to Israel, a Germany across the Polish border.

You have to laugh.
With his brood of 26 children by 15 different mothers, he has been branded Britain’s most feckless father.
Now Peter Rolfe has been given a dream five-bedroom house, funded from the almost £50,000 a year he rakes in from taxpayers, and says: ‘I am not living in a mansion’.
After complaining about his ‘human rights’, Mr Rolfe, 64, was handed a new, bigger home in Newport on the Isle of Wight last month and now lives there with seven of his children, aged 12 to 20, and two grandchildren. He said: ‘People think I live a life of luxury but I don’t. I don’t drink or take drugs or go out.’
I can believe that last sentence, He must be too busy….erm….well, having 26 kids takes a lot of energy. On a more serious note, this welfare parasite needs to have his benefits stopped. Also, whoever in the Council who awarded him this house should be sacked.

Did you see this story?
Saudi Arabia proposed hosting a male-only Olympics in a joint bid that would have seen neighbouring country Bahrain hosting the women’s events . Prince Fahad bin Jalawi al-Saud, an international relations consultant to the Saudi Arabian Olympic Committee, proposed the gender-segregated games in an interview with the French sports website Francs Jeux. He claimed that under new rules passed in the Olympic Agenda 2020 reform package a joint, segregated bid between the two nations would be allowed.
You can understand where Saudi is coming from. Their dark ages mentality demands women are treated as third class citizens and segregation is the cultural norm.

I should begin this post by stating my own personal view; which is that, no matter what, no matter how difficult or tragic the circumstances; there should be no deals with Terrorists!
Consider the present confusion in Syria/Iraq, that portion which is controlled and dominated by the murderous fanatics of Izzy (Islamic State). They hold a Jordanian fighter/bomber pilot, and a Japanese journalist; and they want to swap these two for a female suicide bomber who is in jail in Jordan for killing sixty people.
But just consider what is on offer. A Jordanian pilot, flying under orders. He must have know the risks, flying into a zone where sophisticated weaponry, courtesy of the Americans who left it there to be used by the Iraqis, is freely available. A Japanese journalist who went into IS controlled territory hoping for a ‘story’ and allegedly trying to free another Japanese bloke.
Against those two lives are balanced a third, a female suicide bomber who took part in an attack which cost the lives of sixty people in Jordan.
Is she worth it?
No bloody way!

It always amused me when the class warriors on the Left are shrieking at how the evil Coalition has presided over “tax cuts” for Millionaires. Have a look at some factual data. Those in receipt of more than £1m are paying more in taxes than at any time in the last Labour administration!

Is it possible that Miliband and his goons have been holding talks with the IRA’s proxies in Sinn Fein in the vain hope of forming some sort of post-election pact? With Scottish Nationalists eyeing up similar “arrangements” we have the remarkable situation of a Labour Party sitting in Government supported by parties that seek to end the Union.

As we know, yesterday was the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz Concentration camp. All sane people will be aware of the horrors that took place in that hell hole. So, come today…
Ex-Plaid Cymru leader Lord Wigley has apologised after comparing the Trident base in Scotland to Auschwitz concentration camp. He had been asked about the employment boost if the nuclear facility were to be moved to Wales. He told the BBC: “No doubt there were many jobs provided in Auschwitz and places like that but that didn’t justify their existence.” The comments come after the 70th anniversary of Auschwitz’s liberation.
Wigley can wriggle all he wants but he plainly compared a British military base to a Nazi concentration camp. His moral hypocrisy is quite staggering but is an insight into the demented thinking of Welsh Nationalism. Like most politicians, Wigley is most sorry for any hurt he has caused himself.
