Preserve us from "Advisers" to Tony Blair
Last week so called 'Advisers' from the Muslim Council of Britain advised Tony Blair to scrap Holocaust Memorial Day because it regarded it as offensive to Muslims, as detailed here.
I don’t know about you, but I would really like to know who these unelected "Advisers" are and which Muslims they think they are representing? I don’t think its wrong to say that to suggest that Muslims find the Jewish Memorial Day offensive because it is not inclusive is a complete fallacy. Who dreams this BS up?
There’s something rotten in the State of Islamophobia that is formulating this kind of excrement. All it it is doing is trying to portray the entire Muslim community as anti-Semites who do nothing but bay for Jewish blood. This is awful, wrong and should be resisted by Muslims all the way.
In a similar example of another unelected Muslim Adviser to Tony Blair giving Islamophobes a field day: Ahmad Thomson denies the Holocaust and suggested that Freemasons forced Tony Blair to joining up with the Iraq War. The government should not be taking advice, formally or informally from this man. And if it does, it should be made clear that he does not speak on behalf of the Muslim community, and his hateful views are unacceptable and totally ungrounded in reality.
