At Easter, a Christian festival, the BBC are more concerned about Islam and what you think about it….yesterday they gave us some Muslim propaganda and today they bring us yet more with this on the Frontpage…
US Christian wears hijab for 40 days
Jessey Eagan is a Christian and a mother of two, who works as a children’s director at Imago Dei Church in Peoria, Illinois. This year during Lent, she decided to wear a hijab. She kept a diary of her experience in a blog called #40DaysOfHijab, which is sparkling a debate both in the Christian and Muslim community.
Who cares? The BBC always adds in that line about ‘sparking debate in the community’ in an attempt to show that it’s not just a story of interest to the BBC bubble and has real relevance to the world…when it doesn’t.
Perhaps a US Christian might like to dress up as Kenyan Christian and keep a diary of their experience…possibly a very short diary…..147 dead in Kenya terror attack as Islamists target Christian students
Or those in Egypt, or Pakistan, or Saudi Arabia or Syria or Nigeria…you get the picture.
In the Spectator there are some thoughts from Roger Scruton about ‘The problem of the integration of the Muslim community into our cities’ and how the Left have deliberately set out to destroy our own civilisation and society.
He tells us that ‘‘The truth is hard. We don’t need reminding that there is a heavy censorship in all matters to do with immigration, to do with the integration of immigrant communities and in particular the integration of Muslim communities.’
He says there is a battle for our civilisation and we’re losing it…[There is a battle?]….. ‘Yes, and for the survival of western civilisation. It’s not as though we’ve lost it completely. We still have got this civilisation — it’s all we’ve got, and it’s not as though we’re going to be able to replace it with any other.’
And the BBC is battling on which side? Look at this report and you might wonder...A truly dangerous meeting of minds.
The BBC is claiming that MI5 knew of the likelihood that the men who carried out the 7/7 attacks were likely to become suicide bombers and missed the opportunity to stop them…..the BBC’s source? An apparent MI5 agent…a disgruntled ex-Jihadi….whose story doesn’t add up.
The former MI5 agent who calls himself Aimen Dean recently spoke for the first time about his work for the UK intelligence agencies.
He says his job was to “understand al-Qaeda and other jihadist movement cells based in the UK as well as their recruitment and fundraising activities”.
So it was that in the winter of 2003 he went to the meeting room in Dudley to attend a lecture by a man he had never heard of but who would go on to be an inspiration to Islamist extremists throughout the world…Anwar al-Awlaki.
He can remember the names and faces of men he met briefly in a crowd..
Dean said he shook hands with everyone there, including three men who’d driven down from Leeds. They introduced themselves as Mohammad, Shehzad and Abu Abdullah. The next time Dean saw their faces was in news reports following the 7/7 bombings in which 52 people died.
The BBC tells us…
Dean says he was invited to the eight-day course of lectures by someone who was at that time being watched by MI5 because of concerns he was involved in terrorist activity. Curious to hear the preachings of this new kid on the block, he agreed to be there.
They then say..
In the winter of 2003, MI5 were sufficiently interested in what their agent told them about the lectures that the BBC understands they hurriedly mounted a surveillance operation outside the venue, photographing people coming and going. But by the time the team was in place it seems the men from Leeds had left, since no photographs of them were taken.
So MI5 were already watching a terrorist suspect, the man who invited Dean to the lectures, and yet the BBC tells us they had to ‘hurriedly’ mount a surveillance operation and unfortunately missed the 7/7 boys? And yet they were already watching the suspect and they must have had pre-warning of the lectures which were over 8 days….but the team wasn’t in place in time? Someone is telling porkies.
The BBC speculates that MI5 hid ‘the damning evidence of their negligence’, which is what they are trying to subtly suggest in this story….
A parliamentary committee report in the aftermath of 7/7 found that it could not criticise the judgements made by MI5 and the police based on the information that they had and their priorities at the time. There is no reference in the report to the lecture given by al-Awlaki in Dudley but that may have been because the intelligence had come to MI5 from an undercover agent who needed to be protected.
Maybe there is no mention of it because it never happened.
We’re then told more of what good old Dean said…
Dean remembers reporting to his MI5 handler that all of those in the room could potentially become suicide bombers, but he says that he never expected anyone to attack the UK.
Remarkable…not only does Dean say he saw the 7/7 bombers and remembers them well and that MI5 missed them but that he knew they would become suicide bombers…probably…and again MI5 missed them and must have made little effort to find the people at the lectures despite the ‘knowledge’ that they had 30 potential suicide bombers roaming the UK.
Can’t help thinking someone is taking the BBC for a ride…a ride that the BBC is happy to go along with even if they think it is suspect…the BBC will never turn down a chance to poke the security services in the eye.
