But what about the view from the UK?

Below is today's announcement from the Muslim Association of Britain. No doubt they will soon be serialising "The Protocols" on their website....

MCB stand on Holocaust Memorial Day welcomed by MAB

The Muslim Association of Britain welcomes and fully supports the stand taken by the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB), the main umbrella Muslim organisation in Britain, in boycotting the Holocaust Memorial Day functions.

The attack and immense pressure that the MCB has come under as a result wishes to undermine its principled stand that the horrendous crimes committed against the Jews in Europe in the early and mid-20th century, must be condemned and denounced in the same breath as the crimes committed against innocent people throughout the world today.

MAB concurs fully with the statement of the MCB General Secretary Mr. Iqbal Sacranie, who demanded that the crimes being committed by the Zionist state of Israel against the Palestinians also be condemned and its victims also be commemorated.

Anas Altikriti, speaking on behalf of MAB stated: “MCB has lead the way in this respect, and is speaking on behalf of all British Muslims in that the crimes committed against the Jewish people of Europe several decades ago, must not have us turn a blind eye to the very similar crimes committed by individuals, organisations and states under a variety of pretexts throughout the world. It is saddening to see that as a world community, we have learnt little from the lessons of the past, and we continue to see countless innocent people oppressed and brutalised under a variety of guises. “The victims of today suffer no less torment or pain than those of the last century, and by commemorating them also, the world will be taking a stand against all crimes against humanity and all acts of injustice, regardless of who the perpetrators or the victims are. “We fully support the MCB in its stand and welcome its initiative in this regard.”

I don't know how the MCB gets considered a middle, moderate Muslim institution. Those comments are an absolute and offensive disgrace. For all the faults of Israeli policy, they are not trying to exterminate a whole race - unlike, I may add, most of the Palestinian terrorist groups.

I posted about this the other day.... http://www.solpics.com/2005/01/british-muslims-to-miss-holocaust.htm
and also about the treatment of women in Islam in an earlier post.
This is part of an e-mail I recieved from a Muslim girl regading that subject.
"The stoneing to death mentality is WWAAAYYY off, stoning is only allowed if two peole have comitted adultary and in the rare case BOTH THE MAN AND THE WOMAN MUST BE KILLED. None of the other situations are justifiable for such drastic measures.......now I can go on and on and on for quite a while but I'll simply say Sharia when used properly is fine, it's when it's abused that there are problems"

Unbelievable...she believes it's justifiable to stone two people to death for adultery!

No, it isn't unbelievable. People with this mentality are in our countries -- and they're a lot of them -- and they are working to destroy our polity and replace it with Islamic sharia.
