Party Political Broadcast…

…on behalf of the Muslim Brotherhood.
A major party political broadcast on behalf of the Muslim Brotherhood has appeared on the BBC website.
The BBC are committed followers of the Brotherhood, but any indecisives reading this effusive promo should have their lingering doubts swept clean away.

Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood promotes moderate path.” says the BBC, so it must be so.
“The Muslim Brotherhood runs hospitals, schools, banks, community centres, and facilities for the disabled in cities and towns all over the country.” the BBC’s Tarik Kafala gushes. There follows a lengthy endorsement that no hard-hearted cynic could fail to fall for, except those of us who fail to fall for it.

“The Farouk Hospital is clean and it works, its corridors bustling with poor and middle class Egyptians.
It is a noticeably Islamic institution; framed Koranic verses hang on the walls; the many women there, patients and employees, wear colourful headscarves and conservative clothes.”

Wow. Spread the good news!
Funny how some political outfits can’t shake off their antisemitic histories, but with one fell swoop the Brotherhood can reinvent itself as benevolent, organised and good natured.

“With its conservative Islamist agenda and its historical links to radical and sometimes violent groups, it is feared and mistrusted in the West and to some extent in Egypt.”

But please don’t let that put you off.

“The worry about us in the West is the result of bias and double standards,” Dr Arian says.”
“the hospital is “non-political and non-profit making, and we offer our medical services without consideration to gender, race or religion”.
Such hospitals are the cutting edge of the Muslim Brotherhood’s much-vaunted social services.”

As well as being misunderstood, the poor Brotherhood is also hard done by.

“The Brotherhood, still banned in Egypt, is beginning its campaign to be recognised as a formal political party. It is assumed to be Egypt’s best organised and most popular opposition movement.”

They said all that about Hamas before they murdered most of the opposition. But they were democratically elected, which is just what we in the West are keen to encourage.
The Christians were a bit worried, says the article, near the end, but they’re hoping for the best.
So, VOTE VOTE VOTE Muslim Brotherhood.

    Wonders if that hospital has a special department for sewing back on severed heads and limbs, or resus for stoned adulterers and hanged gays?….thought not!

    Ooh.  Good piece of original journalism.  Or is it?

    This appears to have been produced 6 days ago.

    Except that this version clarifies the “verses on the wall” a little better.  Of course what’s no use to the Beeb is the direction the narrative this version of the report.  Yet this one includes a quote from the former head of the MB.

    Same story – different conclusions.

    Make of that what you will


  4. Span Ows says:

    This is worrying. I cannot believe the BBC are so naif or obtuse so it is the only other thing: they are knowingly producing a concerted effort to preapprove something that WE KNOW will lead to trouble.


  5. Span Ows says:

    P.S. Every time I go to the BBC now (and for the last couple of weeks) I have to make 2 or 3 attempts to load the page…server trouble: are they under attack?


  6. Abandon Ship! says:

    I hear the BBC are now saying that watching ITV is Haraam and all transgressors must be put to death.

    The BBC, as with other liberal apologists for the Islamist agenda, are as Martin Amiss put it “up the arse of the people that want them dead”.

    The Muslim Brotherhood (one rep from London and the other from Cairo) were on “World Have Your Say” a few days ago and refused to recognise the right of Israel to exist, even after repeated and extensive questioning.

    ‘Only connect’, as EM Forster has it in ‘Howards End.

    CAIRO 2005
    In electoral districts throughout Egypt, campaign posters reading simply “Islam is the solution,” urge voters to choose Muslim Brotherhood candidates for parliament when they go to the polls Wednesday. Ahmed Omar, a literature student, will heed the call.
    “I’m not a member of the Muslim Brotherhood but I’m voting for them,” says Mr. Omar. “They have values, morality, and wisdom and they hold the word of God above all else.”

    (AINA) Saturday, 19. February 2011

    ” Muslims broke into the home of a Coptic family this afternoon and abducted their 18-year-old daughter Nesma Sarwat. The home belongs to the building contractor who built the controversial St. Mary and St. Michael church in Talbiya, within the Omraniya neighborhood of Giza. The abductors wrote messages on the home’s wall, the messages said “Islam is the solution” and “The Church has to be demolished.” The abductors also wrote the names of the other family members on the wall.”

    Seems the bBC is on full ‘Vote for Islam’ mode today there is the above which has been followed by:
    UK’s Muslim soldiers ‘fighting extremists not Muslims’

    Which has been followed by this:
    Census: How religious is the UK?

    Which if you read would in effect reduce the number of people who say they are christian and thus give more credence (and status) to Muslims who will always say they are ..Muslims.

    The headline

    “7/7 inquests: MI5 ‘not responsible for attack'”

    Reading through the AINA site (Middle East Christians), I discovered a craven example of EU appeasement at the highest level. I have not seen it reported on the BBC.

    “AINA) — At their recent meeting in Brussels on January 31, EU Foreign Ministers rejected a draft resolution condemning recent atrocities against Christian minorities in Egypt and Iraq. Although preceded by the unequivocal resolution of the European Parliament (EP) on January 20 condemning the increase of attacks on Christian minorities in the Middle East, Africa and Asia, and following an equally explicit recommendation by the Council of Europe (CoE) on January 27, the Council of Ministers could not agree on the inclusion of the word ‘Christian’ in their draft statement on the issue, saying they wanted to avoid saying anything “politically incorrect”.
    Although most religious violence in recent years has been perpetrated against Christians (with hundreds of Christians cruelly murdered during Christmas) and despite the clear statements of the EP and the CoE, EU High Representative Lady Catherine Ashton refused to make explicit reference to the “Christian” victims of these attacks in the ministerial statement that was supposed to condemn such religious persecution. Her position was endorsed and supported by five Foreign Ministers: Luís Amado (Portugal), Trinidad Jiménez (Spain), Jean Asselborn (Luxemburg), Brian Cowen (Ireland, represented by his permanent representative) and Markos Kyprianou (Cyprus).
    Italy, France, Hungary and Poland strongly supported efforts to explicitly condemn the persecution of Christians.
    The subject will be discussed again in the Council of Ministers on February 21.”

    Let’s see what comes of today’s meeting.!

    PS The supporters of Ashton are all Socialist or ‘Centre’ Left.(I checked)

    Just like the BBC, they would do anything rather than offend their current religion of choice.  The attitude to the MB fits neatly into this pattern.

      Just think how much improved it will be when they take turkey into the EU as part of their masterplan?
      Hmmmmm……. A one topic obsession ?..yes I know!


  12. NotaSheep says:

    Three points re that BBC article. First did you spot the line
    “We will serve Muslims, Christian, men and woman, young and old. Many friends – Christians I am talking about – are asking us when we will form a party.”

    What about the remaining Jews in Egypt, will they be served by the Muslim Brotherhood? Or will the Muslim Brotherhood that disseminates Hitler’s Mein Kampf and The Protocols of the Elders of Zion widely in Arab translations and whose Supreme Guide, Mustafa Mashhur, told journalist Khalid Daoud in 1997 that he thought Egypt’s Coptic Christians and Orthodox Jews should pay the long-abandoned jizya poll tax?

    Second did you spot: ” this cannot be put this on hold across the region because of the fears of six million Israelis.”

    Not even a mention that one reason why ‘six million Israelis’ have ‘fears’ is partly because one Muslim Brotherhood leader told an Arab language newspaper recently that Egyptians “should prepare for war against Israel.”

    Thirdly did you notice that there was nary a mention of the Muslim Brotherhood’s past, it’s Islamist beliefs or its leaders’ comments over the years that they want to “Kill Jews – to the very last one.”

    Finally the author of the BBC article is the same Tarik Kafala who has been ‘dealing’ with my long running complaint re BBC anti-Israel bias. I think I am getting a picture of the man with whom I am dealing.

    More on that article –

      A quick Google shows that the Egyptian Jewish community numbered approximately 80,000 in 1922 and in 2004 was estimated as 100. Too few to serve as anything other than occassionally scapegoats.


  13. sue says:

    Charles Moore has an interesting article in the Telegraph. Not so sure about:

    “Bad ideas lead to bad actions, but few of our leaders point this out. One who does is David Cameron. He said as much, very strongly, a fortnight ago”

    but the rest is worth a read.

  15. David Preiser (USA) says:

    If the Egyptians want to vote their own mad mullahs into power, it’s their right to do so.  However, when it turns out that the MB is just as bad as we’ve been saying, we must hold Jeremy Bowen and Frank Gardner accountable for stating on air, numerous times, that the group is “moderate”.

    Time to start searching for video or text proof to back up the attack.


    • Marky says:

      Article 1: (although it has been edited)


      “The country’s only properly organised mass political movement outside the ruling party is the Muslim Brotherhood, and it would do very well in any free election.

      Unlike the jihadis, it does not believe it is at war with the West. It is conservative, moderate and non-violent. But it is highly critical of Western policy in the Middle East.”

    I wonder why the bBC hasn’t reported this story from Eygpt:
    Egyptian Christians Enraged Over Court Acquittal in Christmas Eve Massacre
    (AINA) — The Egyptian Emergency State Security Court in Qena acquitted today two of the three suspects in the Christmas Eve Massacre in Nag Hammadi in January, 2010, where six Coptics, between the ages of 16 to 23, were shot and killed by Muslims in a drive-by shooting. The Copts were killed as they filed out of Church after celebrating the Coptic Christmas Eve midnight mass in Nag Hammadi, 600km south of Cairo A Muslim bystander was also killed and nine Copts were seriously injured The three Muslims accused of the shootings were Mohamed Ahmed Hussein, more commonly known as Hamam el-Kamouny, Qurshi Abul Haggag and Hendawi Sayyed. Mohamed Ahmed Hussein, 39, was sentenced to death by the court on January 16 and the other two were acquitted today. The defendants were charged with using force to disrupt public order and intimidate citizens, with the premeditated murder of seven people, illegal possession of fire arms, the attempted murder of nine others, and voluntarily damaging fixed and liquid assets.Bishop Cyril, the Coptic Orthodox bishop of Nag Hammadi, said “The court imposed one death sentence because one Muslim was killed.

    I wonder if those injured were able to visit that Muslim Brotherhood  Hosptial.


    • Span Ows says:

      pounce_uk…to be clear: the one given the “harsh” death sentence was because he was already dead, is that correct?

    • RGH says:

      Yes, Mike S. We are living in very dangerous times. The battle is on for the Islamic identity and it has reached a hot phase.

      The first lesson is that the revolutions were/are middle class and metropolitan. The real force of the Arab Street’ is yet to come when the teeming millions cotton on that bread ain’t getting any cheaper.

      The law of unintended consequences always applies. At the moment the MB has the BBC (and Al Jazeera) eating out of its propaganda hand.


  19. pounce_uk says:

    I see the bBC is still on vote for Islam mode .Here is a story about how nice Somali pirates felt sorry for 3 Sri lanken fishemen by releasing them. Well so the bbC says:  
    Somali pirates release penniless Sri Lankan fishermen  
    Three fishermen captured by Somali pirates say they were freed without a ransom demand once the pirates discovered they were from Sri Lanka.The fishermen told BBC Sinhala the pirates first asked if the boat was an Iranian vessel.”When we said Sri Lanka boat, they said Sri Lanka and Somalia the same, meaning both are poor countries and you don’t have money,” the captain said.  
    Isn’t that nice, and its even nicer of the bBC to show that not all Somali pirates sorry fishermen are nasty and evil. But wait whats this near the bottom of page. Don’t blink or you’ll miss it,  
    Two of the fishermen were killed during the initial confrontation. The boat was then taken to Somalia.However, Mr De Silva Weerasuriya said the pirates did not demand any ransom after they found out that they were from Sri Lanka and let them return to Sri Lanka in their own boat.  
    So let me get this right, a fishing boat is commendeered in open water, 2 of the crew are murdered, the boat is then sailed across the sea to Somalia, then when the Somali fishermen realise that they have caught a few sprats they toss them back into the sea. The bBC then promotes this story as one of a kinder side of blood thirsty pirates who once they knew that their catch where just like them,  they let them go.

    On tomorrows Party political broadcast the bBC will allow the peaceful party of Bow to speak out about how teaching relgion during RE lessons in schools to Muslims is a sin and the teachers must die.


  20. George R says:

    Islam Not BBC (INBBC) can’t even understand the Islamic causes of the 7/7 bombings, so it’s not surprising INBBC gets it wrong about the nature of the Muslim Brotherhood.

    ‘Newsnight’ tonight is another illustration of this. While UK security forces made errors in intelligence work, in years prior to 7 July 2005′ these forces did not cause the mass murders of that day. The security forces tried, and failed to stop those murders.

    According to ‘Newsnight’s self-censored ‘analysis, the perpetrators of the bombings were: ‘radicals’, ‘militants’, and ‘terrorist suspects’. In other words, ‘Newsnight’ cannot understand the causes of the mass murder because it uses censored language and does not relate its narrative to the tenets of Islam, to the belief in Sharia law, and in Islamic jihad which were intrinsic to the jihadists’ actions.

    It’s more than time than ‘Newsnight’ really tried to understand the causes of 7/7 which it still doesn’t; but to do that, ‘Newsnight’ you will have to stop self-censoring. Do not lie to us about life and death matters.

    “Al-Qaradawi returns to Cairo”



  22. pounce_uk says:

    In yet another party political broadcast for the Islam party the bBC reports how peaceful British muslims are protesting outside the libyan embassy:  
    Libya unrest: London embassy protesters ‘sense change’  
    A small but passionate crowd had gathered outside the embassy in Knightsbridge to voice their disapproval of Col Gaddafi’s regime…Also attending the demonstration was Mohamed Senussi from one of the country’s main opposition groups – the National Front for the Salvation for Libya…”Most people are now pro the revolution,” he said. “And this is now a very exciting time. An attempt by Gaddafi to divide Libyans on tribal lines has failed, and now he has run out of cards.“He’s losing his supporters.”“But we are not happy with the attitude of the European Union. We don’t think they’re worrying about Libya. And all respect to William Hague but we haven’t seen practical things from him early enough.  
    And here is what the bBC doesn’t tell inform you about the last time The National Front for the Salvation of Libya protested outside the British libyan embassy:  
    On 17 April 1984, a demonstration in London of Libyan dissidents was organised by NFSL outside the Libyan embassy. One of the police officers controlling the demonstration, WPC Yvonne Fletcher was shot directly in front of the embassy by a Libyan government operative, and died in hospital shortly after. WPC Fletcher’s murder quickly led to the severing of diplomatic relations between Britain and Libya.  
    No disrespect to the the protesters but you’d have thought the bBC would ahve mentioned it. I mean its not as if they ever forget to mention anything the Yanks,Brits or even jews did in the past. Just like they have kept away from mentioning the dealings that last government had with Gaddiffi. Didn’t Mandy spend a lot of time on Gaddiffis boat. I hear he was on board with Rodger the Cabin boy, Seaman Stains and Master Bates.


    • RGH says:

      “Senussi” (See above)

      Eastern tribe. Enemies of the Khaddafa.

      “The Senussi or Sanussi refers to a Muslim political-religious order in Libya and the Sudan region founded in Mecca in 1837 by the Grand Senussi, Sayyid Muhammad ibn Ali as-Senussi. Senussi was concerned with both the decline of Islamic thought and spirituality and the weakening of Muslim political integrity. He was influenced by the Salafi movement, to which he added teachings from various Sufi orders. From 1902 to 1913 the Senussi fought French expansion in the Sahara, and the Italian colonisation of Libya beginning in 1911. The Grand Senussi’s grandson became King Idris I of Libya in 1951. In 1969, King Idris I was overthrown by a military coup led by Colonel Muammar al-Gaddafi. A third of the population in Libya continue to be affiliated with the Senussi movement.”

      Tribal politics with Islamist undertones.

    Is Islam Not BBC (INBBC) becoming part of:

    ‘Islamization of Knowledge’?
    “Caught in the Act? Akbar Ahmed, the ‘Islamization of Knowledge,’ and the Muslim Brotherhood”


  26. RGH says:

    Thursday, Feb. 17, the Muslim Brotherhood was allowed to take charge of opposition demonstrations in the emblematic Tahrir Square and given permission to build a platform, after the other opposition parties and movements had been refused. Ahead of the big event Friday night, the soldiers withdrew from the square and the Brotherhood’s strong-arm brigades move in. Opposition leaders who tried to mount the platform alongside Brotherhood speakers were thrown off and dragged out of the square without the army interfering.
    By this means, the military rulers achieved two objectives: Letting Muslim Brotherhood adherents mass in the square diminished the role played by the other opposition factions in the eighteen-day uprising; and, secondly, it flashed a graphic warning to the Obama administration to stop pushing for a rapid transition to democracy because it would only lead to the Muslims taking power in government and parliament.
    The sermon preached by Qaradawi, a respected figure in many Sunni circles, had nothing in common with the goals of freedom, rights, reforms, a better life, for which the people demonstrated in Tahriri Square for 18 days.  Not only must the Egyptian people go out and conquer Al Aqsa, said Qaradawi, but Cairo must open the Egyptian-Gaza Strip border to “our brothers,” the Palestinian Hamas. He hammered home demands that would have taken Egypt beyond even scrapping its 1979 peace treaty with Israel and all the way to jihad.
    For this speech, Egypt’s military rulers gave the radical preacher a national platform over state television.

    Who Attacked Lara Logan, and Why? 
    The answer is obvious — but nobody talks about it.

    Tahrir Square is also the place where, in the frenzy after Hosni Mubarak’s fall, CBS news correspondent Lara Logan was seized and subjected to a savage sexual assault by an Egyptian gang. Coverage of the attack has been muted. There have been testimonials to Ms. Logan’s courage, and one anti-American leftist lost his comfortable fellowship at NYU Law School for failing to conceal his glee over the atrocity. We have heard much about the attack, but have heard next to nothing about the attackers. You are just supposed to assume it was a “mob” — the sort of thing that could have happened in any setting where raw emotion erupts, say, Wisconsin’s capitol.

    Except it doesn’t happen in Madison. It happens in Egypt. It happened in Indonesia, the world’s most populous Muslim country, in the riots that led to Suharto’s fall — as Sharon Lapkin recounts, human-rights groups interviewed more than 100 women who had been captured and gang raped, including many Chinese women, who were told this was their fate as non-Muslims. It happens in Muslim countries and in the Muslim enclaves of Europe and Australia, perpetrated by Islamic supremacists acting on a sense of entitlement derived from their scriptures, fueled by the rage of their jihad, and enabled by the deafening silence of the media.

    As Jihad Watch director Robert Spencer has detailed, al-Azhar University endorses a sharia manual called Umdat al-Salik. It is quite clear on the subject of women who become captives of Muslim forces: “When a child or a woman is taken captive, they become slaves by the fact of capture, and the woman’s previous marriage is immediately annulled.” This is so the woman can then be made a concubine of her captor.

    This arrangement is encouraged by the Koran. Sura 4:23–24, for example, forbids Muslim men from consorting with the wives of other Muslims but declares sexual open season on any women these men have enslaved. (“Forbidden to you are . . . married women, except those whom you own as slaves.”)
