"London Taliban" Imposing Sharia

LONDON--Women who do not wear headscarves are being threatened with violence and even death by Islamic extremists intent on imposing sharia law on parts of Britain, it was claimed today.

Other targets of the 'Talibanesque thugs', being investigated by police in the Tower Hamlets area of London, include homosexuals.

Stickers have been plastered on public walls stating: 'Gay free zone. Verily Allah is severe in punishment'.

Posters for H&M which feature women in bikinis and a racy poster for a Bollywood film have been defaced.

It is believed Muslim extremists are behind a spate of attacks being investigated by police, according to the Sunday Times.

An Asian woman who works in a pharmacy in east London was told to dress more modestly and wear a veil or the shop would be boycotted.

When she went to the media to talk about the abuse she suffered, a man later entered the pharmacy and told her: 'If you keep doing these things, we are going to kill you'.

The 31-year-old, who is not a practising Muslim, said she has since been told to take holiday by the pharmacy owners and now fears she may lose her job.

She said: 'Why should I wear a hijab (headscarf) or burqa? I haven't done anything wrong.'

Other incidents reported include the placing of stickers across the white-minority borough which state it is a 'gay-free zone' and the daubing of paint on posters for clothing shop H&M featuring women in bikinis.

Ghaffar Hussain, of the anti-extremism think tank the Quilliam Foundation, told The Sunday Times that the intimidation was the work of 'Talibanesque thugs'.

He added: 'This minority thinks they have the right to impose their fringe interpretation of Islam on others.' (Read more.)

This article is about Tower Hamlets in London. For a long time journalist Andrew Gilligan has been investigating the mayor of Tower Hamlets who has connections to extremist Muslim groups and was elected in quite dubious circumstances, and the encroachment of Islamism in the borough, e.g extremist literature in the libraries and the town hall, women being told to cover up on the streets etc. Anyone who's interested can read his blog at The Telegraph newspaper.

I really think we neeed to drop the word "Extremist" from our vocabualary in refernce to Muslims who want enforce Sharia.

They are only being "good" Muslims and seeking to follow the Qur'an. To use the word "extremist" lulls us into a false sense of security that some how the religion of "peace and tolerance" has been hijacked by a stiny majority.

Awkward.....But inspiring.

"Talibanese thugs" lol?

One day the UK will be ruled by Islam...The U.S should be even easier.

2.79. Woe, then, to those who write the Book with their hands (interpolating into it their readings of the Scriptures and their explanatory notes thereto, stories from their national history, superstitious ideas and fancies, philosophical doctrines and legal rules) and then, in order to sell it for a trifling price (such as worldly benefit, status, and renown), they declare: "This is from God. " So woe to them for what their hands have written, and woe to them for what they have earned (of the worldly income and the sin thereby).

I wonder why this verse is included in the Quran. I bet it refers to Paul and the men who corrupted the true scripture and tmapered with it's meanings.

Creation worship is from Satan, and he has won over you.

Sophie said...

Don't threaten my country with Islamification like that, Kangaroo. We will never be Islamic. We will fight any totalitarian system which seeks to impose itself on us, whether it masquerades as religion or not.

What's inspiring to you about intimidating people into wearing hijabs when they aren't even Muslims, in a country which has not one shred of an Islamic history or identity, nor wants one, Kangaroo? What's inspiring about forcing your beliefs onto other people? What inspires you about replacing a justice system that has spent a thousand years evolving, striving to become ever more just - a law under which Muslims are equal citizens with the Christian/secular majority and seeks to oppress no one - with a law based on the violent, backward, supremacist ramblings of an illiterate warlord and his imaginary friend?

If these people had any idea about their own religion they'd know that the Pact of Umar on which all Islamic states model their treatment of minorities, obliged Christians and Jews not to imitate Islamic dress. Forcing people to wear Islamic headgear, then, makes no sense.

Sorry, but British people aren't going to be converting to Islam en masse anytime soon. Too many of us thoroughly detest the warped, degraded, supremacist mindset it fosters in its devotees, exemplified by your own words on this blog.

And instead of calling them 'Talibanese thugs', hopefully our government will grow a pair, reinstate anti-sedition laws and start calling them 'seditious criminals' and taking them to trial.

The sad thing is, you don't even care about your faith. People who care about their faith care about textual and theological difficulties within their faith; care about reconciling the difficulties in an intellectually honest manner. From what I've read from you, you just dismiss all criticism as nonsense and continue crowing about how perfect Islam seems to you and how foolish we are for not believing in it.

I really do see Islam taking over the world ... they way everyone seems to be bending over for their customs. But I do believe Islam is one of the many manifestations of satan himself... and I definitely agree with Bartimaeus, they are Not extremists or radicals... they are simply muslims.

Unknown said...

I do agree with Bartimaeus they are not extremists or radicals just simply muslims doing as they have been told from the Qu'ran.

Sophie said...

The people who labelled the sharia-enforcers as 'Talibanesque thugs' are Quilliam - an organisation dedicated to fighting Islamic extremism set up by two ex Hizb Ut Tahrir Islamists turned moderates, Maajid Nawaz and Ed Hussein.

There is one big LIE in this story. I found two of their gay hate posters in the West End of London not East London near their mosques (that is the main shopping area like 5th Avenue NYC). I wish I had email address for you cos would send it to you to publish. It shocked me so much that I took a photo of it.

Yeah pal and Hitler/Napoleon/Philip II all wanted to rule England/UK before the Islamonazis. But to quote a bald geezer who smoked too much:

"let it end only when each one of us lies choking in his own blood on the ground"

We fight best when our backs are against the wall - time for that is closing fast - are you ready to fight? - you'd better be pal. There are enough of us left who haven't been poisoned by the spirit of the age to make a stand against you fascists. Britain's population was decimated fighting totalitarianism we'd rather die fighting you than lose or freedoms.

Kangaroo said...

John. If only you knew Islam, you wouldn;t be as freaked out as you are now..chill out? lol..

Fascism is not what I'm going for..

Kangaroo said...

Sophie chill your grill.

I understand The Loonies have twisted some verses out of context in their favor in order to brainwash you into thinking that Christianity is correct and Islam is some evil thing that will turn us all into's exactly what you get from missionaries.

Simply. sometimes I decide to ignore questions because they are ridiculous to answer and sometimes I don't know the answers, which is why I refer to other trusted websites.

Tell me why you wouldn't want to live in a TRUE ISLAMIC STATE.

As a non-muslim, you would pay fewer taxes than the Muslim would.

You won't find prostitutes on the streets, drug cartels busting bullets on civilians, gambling, drug addicts, porn industries, alcohol addiction problems and a lot of social stresses will be removed from you as a women trying to show off your body to others.

Islam creates a pure moralistic society. You don't have to worry about debts because interest will be deleted. Your food will be clean, unlike the U.S method of killnig animals by throwing them into machines and grinding them ALIVE, then mixing their meat with possible contagious other meats. Watch Food Inc..

Hey Kangaroo I come from London - life is what you make it. That is if you are free - free to mess it up free to make it great. You've filled you head with all the hate that's coming out of the mosques these days so you can't see what I'm talking about. I have a family - my wife & 3 daughters and 1 granddaughter. It may surprise you to know that they are loving, moral people respected by their friend and neighbours - they don't go round with bags over their heads (sorry to disappoint you). They each detest the sexist tyranny you wish to impose and can recognise it a mile off. Your mind is so full of hate you will never know the freedom they enjoy. Your hate is your keeper.

I would consider it a happy death to go down fighting the likes of you. You have no idea how much we love life and love our freedom because you don't have it. But there are worse things than death; like living under Islamic rule. We are a small nation but, pal, if you think it's going to be an easy fight you got another thing coming.

Sophie said...

I won't chill my grill, actually, Kangaroo. I will do with my grill as all free people do; that is, whatever the heck I want to do with it, provided that I endanger no one else in the process. That, mate, is what democracy's all about.

No Muslim, no Islamic law, will be regulating the heat of my grill or anything else about me, not in this lifetime, not in the next. I do not want to live in an Islamic state; my fellow Brits do not want to live in an Islamic state. The UK will never be an Islamic state.

Funny how there's never been what you call (in big capital letters, no less) a 'TRUE ISLAMIC STATE', isn't it? Just like how there's never been a 'true communist state' or we'd all be living in a communist utopia right now where everyone is exactly equal. Just like how the Jews ruined the Third Reich for the National Socialists. Weird how totalitarian ideologies never seem to work out as expected.

"Simply. sometimes I decide to ignore questions because they are ridiculous to answer and sometimes I don't know the answers, which is why I refer to other trusted websites."

No, it's not about whether you answer the questions I ask, or whether you answer the questions publicly - that doesn't matter -it's whether you answer the questions in your head or not that's important, and I doubt that you have.

Kangaroo said...

A bag over their heads? It's actually clothing and it tends to keep women modest. It's their choice to wear it or not anyways.

Enjoying life without God is bitter.

I think it would be incorrect to say that Islam is taking over the world. While due to immigration and breeding it certainly is growing in the West, in other lands it's influence is diminishing.

Take Africa for example. According to a scholar who was a guest on Al Jazeerah, every year 6 million African Muslims convert to Christianity (i.e. ~16438 Muslims every day or ~685 Muslims every hour). Considering that there were only 9 million Christians in Africa in 1900 (which is important considering that the population of Ethiopia, the 3rd oldest Christian nation, was 11.8 million at the time), but there are now over 300 million, I would say that Christianity is growing greatly.

Furthermore, despite great persecution in Communist China, there are an estimated 40 to 130 million Christians there (50-60 million is probably a close number), enormous growth especially as there were very few in 1949.


Less taxes in an Islamic society? I think not.

For example, the Hedaya claims that it is lawful to require up to twice as much as the Zakat, or a 40% tax!

And considering that the Jizya is supposed to make the non Muslims feel subdued, and in some cases, to pressure people to convert, I highly doubt that the Jizya will be lower than the Zakat!

Kangaroo, may I ask you? Where do you live now?

I am going to cut and paste this with your name, and I am going to post it every place I can find on Soda Head, and tell people where they can find it.

If you think it is funny to frighten and terrorize Americans under a pseudonym, then I hope you don't mind the consequences of your actions when your religion is vilified even more, because of your own words.

Where is Zaineb Chaudhary?

Hey Kangaroo life without God is indeed bitter, I know I tried it - for nearly 30 years. It's easier to refer to scripture than use my own words to describe what God has done in my life; Psalm 107 v 1-22 sums it up.

I suggest you try wearing a burka - just for a day, then tell me it's not like wearing a bag and that women freely choose to do it. Your own choice of words betrays your misogyny: "it tends to keep women modest".

Maybe you Islamofacists are like the totalitarian and fascists thugs of the 70's/80's a lot of mouth but no mainstream support or substance, or maybe you're more like the Nazis, who grew in strength enough to cause carnage across Europe. I fear the latter is a more accurate picture of the current situation. Another similarity is that our governments weren't sleepwalking in the 70/80's - but they were in the 30's.

mr. kangaroo saide: Fascism is not what I'm going for..... really? another attack from mr. kangaroo to islam... astonneshinge... islam is, per definition a fascistic idiology that wants to:

callibrate all dimensions off society;

impose its worldview upon other iff necessary bie violent means;

creatte an irreal worldorder in which to blame too all the falts and errors comited by its followers;

creatte psychological defenses in order to blockate its followers from leaving the ideology;

mantain a personality cult to its foundr and/or leader (in this case the mythological muhammed);

the people under its rulle has no controlle on the laws thate governe them;

endogenous imperialism: subjugatting others by different tools...

thanks mr. kangaroo to make us see that islam is indeed a fascism and that you hate islam...

Fernando said...

mr. kagaroo saide: «It's their choice to wear it or not anyways»... relly? iff ist a matter off choice, why does islam law legislates about such thingue? and why are so many musloim people sayind that there's no choice outside sharia's rules? your islam does not exist, poor fellow...

Kangaroo said...

Why would I wear a Burqa over my head..I'm a male, not a female.

I live in Lancaster, NY. I have no problem whether or not my sister or mother choose to wear a Burqa or not.. It's not even necessary in Islam because women are allowed to reveal their faces and their hands.

@donna- Uhm okay? Islam teaches us that the entire world will be under it, not very new but sure..go ahead. I don't mind. It's my belief.

You might want to read some TRUTH about non-muslims living in an Islamic state.

It perfectly shows the mercy of the divine law, the full merciful law of Allah (GOD) for us.

It's a short read.

Elinea said...

@ Kangaroo don't think that will ever happen sir - sorry - too many Christians here and we're not giving in to a false man mde religion - sorry .....

Art said...

Kangaroo, if you do not live in an Islamic state, how can you know what one is like?

And if it is so great, why not go live in one now?
