The truth about Islamophobia in the UK

(London) In the UK, there is something of a growth industry in the number of NGOs which can promote the view that actually within our borders the land is filled with white racist bigots. After each newsworthy incident involving followers of Islam (child grooming / terrorist activities / anti-Western protests/murders, etc.), the PC crowd fall over themselves in which to portray the followers of Islam as the victims.

After the London bombings in 2005, the then Government of the day commissioned a group of Muslims to look into why their followers would wish to murder 56 people in cold blood, and what did they come up with?
"Holocaust Day must be scrapped, because it is offensive to Muslims."
That pathetic statement saw the so called Muslim Council of Britain removed from its advisory position with the then Labour Government of the day. And so we move to today.

Tell Mama is a government funded NGO which reports on 'Islamophobic' incidents in the UK. After the cold blooded murder of a British soldier on the streets of London, the other week the media reported a rash of attacks on Muslims. The thing is, they received their statistics not from the Government, hospitals or even the police but rather from Tell Mama. News which the bBC was more than happy to report as ''Sense of endemic fear' in Muslim communities". The thing is, when somebody took the time to look at this substantial rise in hatred towards Muslims in the UK, they found that of the 212 “attacks and intimidation” against British Muslims after the murder of Soldier Lee Rigby that 57 per cent of the 212 reports referred to activity that took place only online, mainly offensive postings on Twitter and Facebook, or that a further 16 per cent of the 212 reports had not been verified. Not all the online abuse even originated in Britain.

Contrary to the group’s claim of a “cycle of violence” and a “sustained wave of attacks”, only 17 of the 212 incidents, 8 per cent, involved the physical targeting of people and there were no attacks on anyone serious enough to require medical treatment.

As usual, Muslims have been found to be telling porkies about how they can only be victims in which to excuse their murderous antisocial behaviour.

Well, the good news from all of this, is that Tell Mama has just seen its government funding removed. What is it with Muslims and their victimhood mentality?
