"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

More Scum Rising

There are two articles in The Times this morning about Hizb'ut Tahrir, the radical Islamic organisation working towards a global caliphate.  The first concerns Reza Pankhurst who is is a postgrad student in the LSE’s government department and teaches classes for the course “States, Nations and Empires”; he also regularly preaches at the uni's Friday prayers.  The London School of Economics is, of course, the university of choice for 'the liberal left'.

He was an IT Consultant in 2002 when he was arrested in Egypt for promoting the banned Party together with two other Britons.  At their trial in 2004 they were sentenced to five years' imprisonment and questions were subsequently raised in the House of Commons by David Amess, (Con, Southend West).

The second article is written by a former member of Hizb'ut Tahrir and gives a general overview of the group's activities.
Hizb ut-Tahrir is so committed to finding new recruits at universities that during my time as a member (2001-05) a specific “universities team” was created, which co-ordinated and directed the activity of party activists across Britain.
In related news, the senior advocate of the European Court of Justice  has ruled that a UK decision to stop welfare benefits to wives of suspected terrorists was unfair on the grounds of human rights and that the payments must be reinstated.
Whitehall officials have refused to name the families involved in the test cases - but all three of the husbands are foreign nationals on the United Nations list of international terror suspects.
They have been linked by security officials to Al Qaeda, Osama bin Laden and the Taliban
The payouts to their wives include income support, child benefit and housing assistance worth 'several hundred' pounds a week.
Any decision by the European court, which is expected to issue a final judgment in three to six months, will be binding on the House of Lords and on courts throughout the EU.



PS: Someone left this comment under the article about the ECJ:
"Get out of the EU!! Will Gordon Brown and his cronies put their foot down for once.... I doubt it. We have a bunch of weakling who have no b****!"
Perversely, I think GB, TB & pals do have balls; the problem is they're facing down the people rather than the EU/ECJ.  A sovereign and proud British nation was always going to be the thorny obstacle on the EU's path so slyly and by degrees this country has been screwed deeper than any other with interventions from central government and local government. The  people are not being truly represented.
"It may well be that our means are fairly limited and our possibilities restricted when it comes to applying pressure on our government. But is this a reason to do nothing? Despair is not an answer. Neither is resignation. Resignation only leads to indifference, which is not merely a sin but a punishment."
