Is this Britain’s most unfriendly cafe? Customers ‘insulted’ and disabled girl ‘told to sit outside’

Cafe Crepes, in Epsom High Street, has come under attack for the “rude and aggressive” service by its Iranian born owner, who is not bothered by the criticism.

A cafe owner described as “the most aggressive and rude woman” ever has dismissed her critics saying they are rude, uneducated and she does not need their money.

Iranian-born Anne Giffard has run Cafe Crepes, in Epsom High Street, for the past five years, serving fresh crepes, omelettes and drinks.

Two weeks ago, an appalled Gretta Dempsie, mother of Game of Thrones and Skins actor Joe Dempsie, contacted the Epsom Guardian to complain about the treatment of her disabled daughter, Lauren.

Mrs Dempsie said she and her husband had taken their daughter – who had moved to Epsom that day to start living in a specially-adapted cottage – to Cafe Crepes for lunch, but had been refused service unless they sat outside.

She said: “I pushed my daughter in and the owner behind the counter had an expression to say ‘what are you doing in here?’.

“We said we wanted some food. She said ‘not in here, you can sit outside’.

“She said that was because of the wheelchair.”

Mrs Dempsie said the family did not want to sit outside because of noise from traffic and that the restaurant was empty.

“She kept saying ‘it’s all booked, it’s all booked’ and then just ignored us.

“I found it hard to believe. Her hostility towards us was palpable,” she added.

“We have never had this before. Usually we get really helpful people.

“I’m just appalled. My daughter was so upset.

“This was our welcome to Epsom.”

Your Local Guardian:

Mrs Dempsie said she and her husband Jim spent months driving around looking for somewhere in Surrey for their daughter to live and chose Epsom because “it had flat pavements and seemed accessible”.

She said her daughter loves crepes and would have been a regular customer to the cafe.

However, the Dempsies are not the only ones to complain about the way they were treated at Cafe Crepes.

All six reviews on website slate Mrs Giffard for being rude, aggressive and unhelpful.

But Mrs Giffard, who runs the restaurant with help from her husband, said she is not bothered by all the negative feedback.

Speaking to the Epsom Guardian last week, she said: “People come in here and don’t understand.

“They say I am rude to them. They are rude.”

An Epsom resident of 15 years, Mrs Giffard was born in Iran and grew up in France.

She said she has a select group of customers who she loves and who like her food, with people coming from Wimbledon just for her crepes.

Mrs Giffard said the restaurant is too small and narrow for pushchairs and wheelchairs and that there is seating outside for these customers.

She said: “This is a small business, it is not a chain.

“If you’re not happy, don’t come.  It’s not my problem.”

Her prized customers include Atkins employees who regularly order lunch and a “nice, polite family who come and understand me”.

“They fold their buggy, put it on the side and sit in here,” she added.

“We talk about the news.  They feel at home or that they are in the house of an auntie.

“Others, they come in and provoke me.

“If you’re in Epsom in the morning there are lots of pushchairs. They go and get their benefits and they go from cafe to cafe.

“I prefer to have people with good manners.

“It’s a question of education.

“These types of people have no education or manners. This is about respect.

“This is like my kitchen.

“My customers are happy and I’m happy.”

Mrs Giffard does not tolerate people speaking on their telephones in Cafe Crepes because she said she wants to create a real cafe ambience.

She said people ask her why she wants to turn away their custom, but that she is not desperate for their money: “I am an Iranian.  I am not like this.”

In its latest food hygiene inspection, conducted in March this year, environmental health inspectors gave the cafe a two-star rating which equates to “improvement necessary”.

But like it or loathe it, Cafe Crepes will soon be departing Epsom.

Mrs Giffard said she must return to Iran to take care of family matters and will be selling the shop before the end of year.

She said she has already received several offers.

“I think I will miss it. Here is my baby,” Mrs Giffard added.

“But I teach everything to the new owner. I teach everything.”#

Cafe Crepes was awarded a Food Hygiene Rating of 2 (Improvement Necessary) by Epsom & Ewell Borough Council on 14th March, 2014.

“This cafe is terrible. They refused to serve me because – terror of all terrors – I had a pushchair with me.” – Gary Puckett

“Do not go here. Not only does this have a poor food hygiene score…The lady tried to verbally abuse me for answering a call whilst looking at the menu.” – Julie Smith

“The woman at this place is the most aggressive and rude woman I have ever met. After various instances of verbal abuse we were ushered out the shop without having a chance to review the food and screamed at for being English.” – Chris Bannocks

“I experienced the most astonishing and aggressively rude and insulting behaviour from the lady owner.  When questioned about her poor attitude, she went on to insult me and, for some unfathomable reason, carried on to insult England and all English people.” – Jerry Rommer

For Failing To Invite Imams To Assembly Christian School Claims It Faces Closure .

  • Trinity Christian School said to be failing new ‘Trojan Horse’ requirements.
  • Not meeting ‘spiritual, moral, social and cultural development’ of pupils.
  • Ofsted say they must ‘actively’ promote other faiths to comply.
  • But Reading school says new rules combating extremism are ‘disturbing’.

Trinity School Reading. Berkshire

A Christian school which claims it could face closure for failing to invite imams and other religious leaders to take assemblies has urged the government to revise controversial ‘British values’ rules.

Trinity Christian School has been told by Ofsted it is not adequately meeting the ‘spiritual, moral, social and cultural development’ of pupils.

This is because it is not ‘actively’ promoting other faiths in the wake of the Trojan Horse scandal in Birmingham, by asking different religious representatives to lead lessons and assemblies.

John Charles, chairman of governors at the small, co-educational independent school in Reading, has now written to Education Secretary, Nicky Morgan, appealing for the new regulations to be reviewed.

He claims that the school’s aims are being undermined and it will be prevented in future from ‘teaching in accordance with our Christian foundation’.

The school is backed by the national religious liberty charity, the Christian Institute.

It has already warned that the new rules intended to combat extremism are having ‘disturbing consequences’ for religious schools and forcing Ofsted inspectors to act in a way which undermines their ethos.

In November, Ofsted inspectors described the school’s provision for pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development as ‘excellent’.

They said pupils were ‘well prepared for life in modern, multicultural, democratic British society through the teaching of the Christian principle to ‘love thy neighbour’’.

This summer, the school, which has fees of £11,880-a-year, applied to the Department for Education to extend its age range to include pupils from nine to 11. As a result, it was re-inspected by Ofsted in October.

In his letter, Mr Charles claimed the inspection focused predominantly on revised Independent School Standards regarding spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

This included whether the school could demonstrate evidence of actively promoting ‘the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs’.

He said: ‘We understand that the revised standards only came into force on 29 September and are held out as the Government’s response to radicalism and extremism.’

This issue ‘dominated’ the inspector’s questions and ‘at no point were any questions asked about other aspects of the curriculum or the quality of teaching assessed through lesson observations’.

Mr Charles continued: ‘In expressing doubt over the school’s continued existence, the inspector stated: that representatives of other faiths should be invited to lead assemblies and lessons in order for the school to demonstrate compliance with the Standards.’

The school was also told, that in order to comply with the new regulations, it should ‘actively’ promote other faiths, and the principles of the Equality Act 2010. This meant not stating ‘certain lifestyles are wrong’ or promoting a ‘particular lifestyle’.

Mr Charles said: ‘From November 2013 to October 2014 the school has continued the same provision for pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development which Ofsted adjudged excellent in November 2013.

‘Yet, immediately following the introduction of the revised school standards, the school is threatened with the prospect of closure. We cannot understand how such a change in thinking can take place within a year.

‘It is an explicit aim of ours to encourage pupils to serve and respect other people, appreciate different cultures and ideas and equip them for life in society.

‘But the comments made by Ofsted, as a result of the new regulations, undermine our aims and would prevent us from teaching in accordance with our Christian foundation.’

Mr Charles added: ‘We are therefore extremely concerned about where the new school standards leave the protections afforded by the Equality Act and our school’s charitable objects as established in the deed trust.’

The school, which aims to ‘provide each pupil with a Biblical understanding’ has received an ‘advice note’ from Ofsted, confirming it ‘does not meet the new requirements’.

But Simon Calvert, deputy director of The Christian Institute, said the law ‘has long respected the ability of religious schools to prioritise the teaching of their own faith’.

He said: ‘In this case, a Christian school, with Christian teachers and a Christian ethos – paid for by Christian parents – is being told they should have other religious leaders come in and lead collective worship.

‘Many Christian families would simply not want to subject their children to that.’

He added ‘What we need, is to go back to the drawing board to actually talk to stakeholders, talk to faith schools, find out where they’re coming from and come up with a set of proposals which don’t require them to promote beliefs which profoundly go against their own.’

In June, the government launched a consultation on proposed new Independent School Standards.

This stated that schools ‘most actively promote’ fundamental British values, ‘including furthering tolerance and harmony between different cultural traditions and encouraging respect for democracy.

It added: ‘A minimum approach, for example putting up posters on a notice board and organising an occasional visit to places of worship would fall short of ‘actively promoting’.

‘Schools will be expected to focus on, and be able to show how their work with pupils is effective in embedding fundamental British values.’

An Ofsted spokeswoman said last night: ‘The independent school standards are set by the Department for Education.

‘Inspectors must check that independent schools follow these. The standards have been strengthened since this school was previously inspected in November 2013.

‘One of Her Majesty’s Inspectors to visited the school at the request of the Department for Education and found it had further work to do to prepare pupils for life in modern Britain.

‘Ofsted did not threaten the school with closure and has no powers to close schools.’

‘If the school is concerned about the conduct of an inspector or that an inspection is faulty, it should follow Ofsted’s formal machinery for raising those concerns. The department will consider the Ofsted report when we receive it.’

Is the UK lawfully actually a member of the EU? Who gave Government and Parliament “divine right” to give away what is yours or mine without specifically asking us?

uk and eu 2b Capture

If someone took any of our property and sold it or gave it away without permission, say a car or a mobile phone, do they have the right to do that? No they do not!

Would you have the absolute right to have it back in law? Yes of course you would! Is it a harm? Definitely… So what if you or I had an inheritance to give to our children, could that just be taken and given away to say someone you don’t even know? Say in Italy or France? What about our constitutional rights? Can they be taken and given away without you being asked, or could your next door neighbor sign away your right to a fair trial? Your right to challenge being unlawfully held by say the police on made up or false charges? Of course not… Can anyone simply decide to give away what is yours? By saying that, if I sign a bit of paper, does that mean I can? No, and it would be utterly ridiculous to even consider such a thing, because it is not part of what people regard as being “law”.

Has any UK Government or any part of Parliament the right to give away your constitutional, political and civil rights or liberties to a foreign power, say China or Brazil, without your consent? Of course this is nonsense, Government & Parliament has no real ownership of these things, only you can agree to such a thing, can you be defrauded into giving away your Children’s Rights? That if that what happening in reality it would be ridiculous wouldn’t it? BUT THAT IS WHAT IS HAPPENING!

THE ISSUE: Did government or parliament have the lawful or prerogative right to give away your current and your children’s constitutional liberties, freedoms & rights as contained in Ancient and more recent Case Law, the Petition of Right, 1628, Declaration of Rights 1688/9, Magna Carta 1215 & 1297, how about the 1100 Charter of Liberties, or even the earlier laws of the land without our express and overwhelming consent? Where does it say they can? Reading our constitution & laws makes it plain that they CANNOT!

THE CHARGES: Whereas Parties, Vested interests, Governments & Parliaments have in recent decades By the advice and lobby of wicked and evil Counsellors have Invaded the fundamental Constitution of this Kingdom and altered it from a constitutionally limited monarchical republic in Parliament, to an Arbitrary Despotic power by Political Faction Governments, by progressive removal of the Nations Historic Constitutional Safeguards and given power to others not of this Realm or of foreign bloodlines, though unlawful the actions of the Governments subverting the House of Commons as controlled by various rotating Parities and they have in a public proclamations asserted a lie, the Sovereignty of Parliament as an absolute power to annul and disable all the ancient law and have subverted the constitution and the liberties, freedoms, rights, interests and duties of the Estates of the Realm – and this has unlawfully caused distress to the nations and peoples of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
(Adapted from the Scottish petition of Right 1689.)

hands off our freedom Capture

THE CASE: Over the last 45 years, progressively the rights, liberties and freedoms of the British peoples have been given away without consent and express permission unlawfully to the EU along with BILLIONS of pounds of UK Money. WE have not been as ked if we agree and there is/was no power or authority to do this by any UK Government or Westminster Parliament as they simply did not have the right, authority or power to contract that the EU system of law was superior to UK Constitutional, Common & other Law of the la nd. They also didn’t have the power to grant the ability for an effective dictatorship of the EU to make 80% of our laws and wipe out more than 1200 years of Historical refinement and maintenance of law, to keep the law free from spoil by foreign powers. It is unlawful and beyond the power for Governments & Parliaments to have agreed that In November 2014 the right of people to elect MP’s to decide on many issues, the decisions shall instead be vested in the EU and for parliament to be effectively dead in 43 critical areas.

It has not been in the mainstream media of course, that on November 1st 2014, the British parliament apparently loses the right to legislate important areas of our own country and for any parliamentary or government veto, the British parliament will have to seek approval from all of the EU for any laws they wish to pass in any of those 43 areas. The British Parliament supposedly even loses the right of veto over any of those areas at the same time, supposedly due to “transitional arrangements” until March 2017 “before the IN/OUT referendum”, if there ever is one.

It would be extremely dull to go on and torment you with all of that. But this does not fit with our way of doing things here in the UK, because our constitutional & political actually doesn’t allow for this sort of thing to happen! Not only that, but it is a fundamental principle in Constitution & Common law, that no parliament can bind it’s successor – so if you think it is any particular party that is causing this, then you are being misled.

NO UK or EU Parliament is allowed to get involved! You do not get to vote for any commission or council and they are 100% exempt from democratic or criminal accountability!!! They have given themselves “divine right” to rule despotically, free from any responsibility or transparency.

THIS IS ALL constitutionally and otherwise unlawful for Government Ministers, Parliaments & Judges to breach the Monarchs and their own oaths in agreeing to this and upholding this in breach of ancient liberties, rights and freedoms and the constitution of this realm!

This effectively dethrones the monarch and the right of the people to hold the crown and government and parliament accountable under various charters and laws from the time of Alfred the Great and effectively wipes out the last vestiges of common law and freedoms under it, and is a gross breach of, and invasion of the fundamental Constitution of this Kingdom!

Prior to this in the 1970’s the right of Local Communities to be directly consulted on legislation was removed in local government acts that removed self governing communities and their burgesses. And that Parties in the Houses of parliament have unlawfully used a whip system to persuade and coerce MP’s under threat of sanctions from acting as elected representatives to tow a party line, which is similar to interfering with a jury.

Not only that, but Parties in the Houses of parliament have unlawfully threatened the house of lords to restrain and then remove one estates of the realm from their constitutional protective role by coercive eviction!

Renegotiating and an IN/OUT REFERENDUM would be like trying to convince you to agree to and be complicit in an unlawful act, your agreement to something unlawful no matter what you decide. If we are not lawfully a member, you’re being induced to treason against the constitution by participating.

Jihad Attack on NYPD? Axe-Wielding Assailant Had Possible Ties to ISIS



by Brian Hayes | Top Right News

Stunning news out of New York City today, fast-developing at this moment, of a potential Islamic terror attack on NYC Police, with possible links to ISIS.

Thursday evening the New York Police Department issued a patrol bulletin alerting officers to be in a state of heightened awareness after Wednesday’s murder of a Canadian soldier and shootout at the Parliament complex in Ottawa. The bulletin warns of potential attacks on uniformed officers.

Today in NYC, a man with an axe approached a group of NYPD officers and, in an unprovoked attack, struck two of them with the axe before officers fired upon the subject, killing him.

The attacker’s name is Zale Thompson. You can see his body in the photo above. He is in a green fatigue jacket with thick black beard.

You can see the immediate aftermath of the axe attack and fatal shooting in the bystander video below, obtained by the NY Post:

The assailant approached 4 “rookie” cops at the corner of  Jamaica Avenue and 160th Street in Queens.

“The cops yelled ‘Drop it!’” said rattled eyewitness Larry Bethune, 44, of Hollis, Queens, recalling the moment the psycho pulled a small hatchet from his jacket.

“And he lunged at one of them,” the witness remembered. “He raised his arm up high and brought it straight down on the cop’s head.

“The cop went down to the ground, face first. It was horrible. I’ve never seen anything like that on Jamaica Avenue,” he added. “The cop’s just lying there with blood pouring down his face. He didn’t move.”

Another witness, Kelli Reddica, 24, recalled hearing seven shots ring out as the crazed man was brought down, and seeing the downed cop’s horrible injury.

“He looked like he couldn’t move, and blood was gushing out of his head. Blood just drenched the side of his face,” she said.




Here is a closer look at the assailant’s head and face: possiblejihadist

Tonight, an NYPD source emailed Top Right News Zale’s Facebook page, which features what appears to be a Muslim “Salafist” fighter, along with Arabic:






UPDATE 10:42pm EST: The Arabic at the top of his Facebook page is from the Qur’an: it is the first few verses of the Fatihah, the Qur’an’s first chapter and the most common prayer in Islam. “In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful. Praise be to Allah, Lord of the worlds, the compassionate, the merciful, master of the day of judgment.”


Closeup of the Muslim fighter on axe attacker Thompson’s Facebook page:

Finally, Vocativ reports that NYPD and other law enforcement have looked at Thompson’s “online chatter” and found possible evidence of a terror connection:

Law-enforcement sources said that a look into Thompson’s chatter online revealed he had ties to a radical U.S.-based radical Islamic leader who advocated aggression against the American government.

Last month, Thompson, who says on his Facebook page that he graduated from the Teachers College, Columbia University in New York, commented on YouTube: “If you’re looking for ‘perfect’ Muslims who never make any mistakes in their Jihad, then you will be looking in vain! If the Zionists and the Crusaders had never invaded and colonized the Islamic lands after WW1, then there would be no need for Jihad! Which is better, to sit around and do nothing, or to Jihad fisabeelallah!”

Thompson’s comment was on a video explaining the idea of creating an Islamic caliphate, or borderless kingdom, which is ISIS’s ultimate aim.

Events are still developing at this hour, and there wil lbe  updates as circumstances warrant. At last report the NYPD was reportedly engaged in a “massive operation” in the area, and NYPD Chief William Bratton “does not rule out the possibility of a terror attack.”

True Reason Why Muslims Dislike Dogs

dog convict Capture

This is the real reason why Muslims are forbidden to have a dog as a pet or allow one in their house :

A puppy deterred the “Archangel Gabriel” from entering Muhammad’s house, thus, dogs are ordered to be killed.

(from Sahih Muslim, Book 024, Number 5246)
“A’isha reported that Gabriel (peace be upon him) made a promise with Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) to come at a definite hour; that hour came but he did not visit him. And there was in his hand (in the hand of Allah’s Apostle) a staff. He threw it from his hand and said: Never has Allah or His messengers (angels) ever broken their promise. Then he cast a glance (and by chance) found a puppy under his cot and said: ‘A’isha, when did this dog enter here? She said: By Allah, I don’t know He then commanded and it was turned out. Then Gabriel came and Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said to him: You promised me and I waited for you. but you did not come, whereupon he said: It was the dog in your house which prevented me (to come), for we (angels) do not enter a house in which there is a dog or a picture.”

Also; Sahih Muslim, Book 024, Number 5248:infidel dog Capture
“Then on that very morning he commanded the killing of the dogs until he announced that the dog kept for the orchards should also be killed, but he spared the dog meant for the protection of extensive fields (or big gardens).”

Comment: Since dogs are said to be able to detect and sense danger and evil, it should make one wonder why the “Archangel Gabriel” would not enter Muhammad’s house just because of the puppy. ??? Also, Muhammad believed that “black dogs” were demonic and should be killed.

More: “Allah’s Apostle said, “If somebody keeps a dog, he loses one Qirat (of the reward) of his good deeds everyday, except if he keeps it for the purpose of agriculture or for the protection of livestock. ” (Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 54, Number 541)

What ridiculous poppycock!

The truth is that when the “angel Gabriel” first visited Muhammad, this “angel” physically assaulted Muhammad, leading Muhammad to think the “angel” to be a demon.

Bukhari, Book 1, Volume 1, Hadith 3:

The angel came to him and asked him to read. The Prophet replied, “I do not know how to read.

The Prophet added, “The angel caught me (forcefully) and pressed me so hard that I could not bear it any more. He then released me and again asked me to read and I replied, ‘I do not know how to read.’ Thereupon he caught me again and pressed me a second time till I could not bear it any more. He then released me and again asked me to read but again I replied, ‘I do not know how to read (or what shall I read)?’ Thereupon he caught me for the third time and pressed me, and then released me and said, ‘Read in the name of your Lord, who has created (all that exists) has created man from a clot. Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous.” (96.1, 96.2, 96.3) Then Allah’s Apostle returned with the Inspiration and with his heart beating severely. Then he went to Khadija bint Khuwailid and said, “Cover me!

What angel of God would physically and repeatedly assault (“pressed me so hard that I could not bear it any more”) a man, rendering him cowering and fearful? Muhammad’s account contradicts every account of angelic encounters in the Bible.

That was no Angel Gabriel. It was a demon.

In fact, the earliest biography of Muhammad, Ibn Ishaq, stated Muhammad thought he was demonically possessed.

Ottawa shooting: Cpl. Nathan Cirillo dies of wounds, gunman also shot dead

  • Cpl. Nathan Cirillo dies from gunshot wounds.
  • Gunman killed, ID’d as Michael Zehaf-Bibeau.
  • PM Harper to make address tonight
  • Parliament Hill remains under lockdown.

Parliament Hill came under attack today after a man with a rifle shot and fatally wounded a soldier standing guard at the National War Memorial in downtown Ottawa, before seizing a car and driving to the doors of Parliament Hill’s Centre Block nearby.

The slain soldier is Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, 24, a reservist from Hamilton.

Moments later, MPs and other witnesses reported 30 to 50 shots fired inside the main Parliament building.

It was confirmed later the gunman was shot dead inside the building, felled by the House of Commons sergeant-at-arms and RCMP, according to MPs’ accountS.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper was on the Hill at the time of the shooting, but was safely taken away. He is expected to make an address to the country later this evening. Hisspokesman tweetedthat Harper had met with members of his cabinet to discuss the shooting.

Hundreds of people are still waiting to be evacuated from Parliament Hill this evening, including a daycare, as the area remains locked down. Four OC Transpo buses have been brought in to take people away from the Hill when that is allowed.

CBC News has confirmed the dead shooting suspect is Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, a Canadian born in 1982. CBC News has learned that Zehaf-Bibeau has a criminal record in Quebec dating back 10 years on some drug-related charges. Court documents from that time show that he lived at an address in Montreal.

He also has a criminal record in B.C., where he was convicted in 2012 of uttering threats and served one day in jail.

‘Unfolding situation’

Later in a news conference, police and military officials confirmed the incident is not over, saying people in the downtown core should remain vigilant and stay inside. Police would not say whether they still suspect another shooter is involved, saying only “there is no one in custody at this time.”

“This is a dynamic and unfolding situation,” said RCMP Assistant Commissioner Gilles Michaud, commanding officer of the national division.

Michaud also suggested that police had no forewarning of the attack, saying “it caught us by surprise.” He added that it’s too soon to say whether the dead gunman was already known to security officials.

Michaud added that police have maintained a “medium” level of security of Parliament for the past number of years, and that had not changed in recent days.

Police also would not say whether the gunman was a Canadian citizen or whether police had retrieved the weapon.

Ottawa police Chief Charles Bordeleau asked witnesses to the incidents to come forward.

Ottawa Civic Hospital confirmed four people were taken to hospital: the soldier, who died, and three who are stable with minor injuries. One of those injured was a parliamentary security guard shot in the foot and later released from hospital, according to CBC’s Judy Trinh.

Despite earlier reports of shots fired near the Rideau Centre shopping mall east of Parliament Hill, police later said “no incident occurred near the Rideau Centre.”

Alain Merisier, who works at the cafeteria in one of the Parliament Buildings, told CBC News that he saw a man in a car at the Centre Block with a long gun.

Chaos and bravery inside Parliament

Cellphone video shot by a Globe and Mail reporter showed a chaotic scene in the elegant hallway leading from the front doors of Parliament’s Centre Block to the Library of Parliament during the attack.

A sustained volley of shots was fired. Startled security personnel and political staff scrambled to take cover in the limestone alcoves as bullets flew.

In the minutes after the shooting on Parliament Hill, MPs and parliamentary staff began tweeting and telling reporters that it was Sergeant-at-Arms Kevin Vickers who shot the gunman. The tweets included:

  • NDP MP Craig Scott: “MPs and Hill staff owe their safety, even lives, to Sergeant at Arms Kevin Vickers who shot attacker just outside the MPs’ caucus rooms.”
  • Veterans Affairs Minister Julian Fantino, former head of the Ontario Provincial Police and ex-Toronto chief of police: “I am safe & profoundly grateful to Sgt at Arms Kevin Vickers & our security forces for selfless act of keeping us safe.”
  • Justice Minister Peter MacKay: “Thank God for Sgt at Arms Kevin Vickers & our Cdn security forces. True heroes.”

Cabinet ministers, MPs and journalists in the buildings housing the House of Commons and Senate were in lockdown as police tracked the gunman. Sources tell CBC News that Harper was on the Hill at the time, and was extracted safely from the area by security.

Opposition NDP Leader Tom Mulcair and Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau were also reported safe.

In a statement released earlier in the day by Harper’s office, he said, “Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those who were attacked.”

His office released a photo of the prime minister being briefed away from Parliament Hill by RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson.

Harper’s spokesman Carl Vallée said on Twitter that Harper also spoke briefly to U.S. President Barack Obama on Wednesday afternoon. Harper also spoke with Mulcair and Trudeau, the Prime Minister’s Office said.

Rush to aid injured soldier

Earlier, police sealed off the area around the National War Memorial while the injured soldier was given emergency medical aid. He was later put into an ambulance.

“We were waiting there for a city tour and suddenly I heard four shots,” said Jan Lugtenborg, a tourist visiting downtown Ottawa from Holland.

“Suddenly I saw a small guy with long black hair … with a long rifle, and he ran away after the shots, across streets in the direction of Parliament Hill,” he said.

Raivo Nommick, another bystander, said “all of a sudden I just heard a shot, turned around and there was a guy with a rifle …. and just pow pow.

“Then I saw one of the other Armed Forces guys just running. He barrelled over, just ran right over. The other guy just dropped. I looked back and just dived underneath and immediately called 911.”

The National War Memorial stands in Confederation Square in the heart of downtown Ottawa. The Parliament Buildings are to the northwest.

Scott Walsh, who was working on Parliament Hill, said he saw a man running with a double-barrelled shotgun, wearing a scarf and blue jeans.

Walsh said the man hopped over the stone fence that surrounds Parliament Hill, with his gun forcing someone out of a car. He then drove to the front doors of Parliament and fired at least two shots, Walsh said.

Some witnesses were taken to the city’s police headquarters.

New Democrat MP Hélène Laverdière said she heard 20 to 30 shots inside Parliament, and hit the floor. She and fellow MPs Charlie Angus and Rosane Doré Lefebvre were later led out of the Centre Block to safety.

Doré Lefebvre said she was worried about getting her daughter from the daycare facility on Parliament Hill.

Two arrested by anti-terror police in London and Bedfordshire

Police searched a property on Granville Street in Bedford in connection with the Bedfordshire arrest

Anti-terrorism police have arrested two people, including a woman suspected of “preparation of terrorist acts”.

The 25-year-old woman was arrested in Bedfordshire and a man, 32, was held in London on suspicion of “attending a place used for terrorist training”.

Police said the arrests were not connected, but both were “related to Syria”.

The arrests were carried out by the Metropolitan Police’s SO15 Counter Terrorism Command.

Both suspects are being held at central London police stations.

Officers searched two Bedfordshire addresses, including one in Granville Street, Bedford.

An address in west London and another in south-west London are being searched.

Al-Shabaab militants in southern Somalia publicly stoned an 18-year-old boy to death after he was accused of rape, the Al-Qaeda-linked group and witnesses said.

The teenager, named as Hassan Ahmed Ali, was accused of raping a 28-year-old woman at gunpoint and sentenced to al shabab stoningCapturedeath by a local judge, Al-Shabaab’s Radio Andalus reported. About 100 people witnessed the killing yesterday afternoon in the main square of Dharuuro, a village in Somalia’s Lower Shabelle region, Mohamed Dhubow, a resident, said by phone.

“Dozens of masked fighters” threw stones at the teenager, who’d been buried up to his neck, Dhubow said. “No one could help him.”

Taxi firm in Rochdale offers white drivers on demand after two of Pakistani origin were jailed for sex-grooming of girls in town

A taxi company in a town tainted by a child sex-grooming gang scandal is offering customers white drivers on demand.

Taxi company: Rochdale minicab firm Car 2000 (pictured) is offering the choice after two taxi drivers of Pakistani origin were jailed for their part in the sex trafficking and rape of young white girls in the town.

  • Minicab firm Car 2000 says customers are asking for white or ‘local’ drivers 
  • Firm bought out Eagle Taxis which was at the centre of grooming scandal
  • Two drivers of Pakistani origin were jailed for part in sex trafficking & rape
  • Labour MP Simon Danczuk has branded development ‘extremely worrying’

Rochdale minicab firm Car 2000 is offering the choice after two taxi drivers of Pakistani origin were jailed for their part in the sex trafficking and rape of young white girls in the town.

The firm, which bought out Eagle Taxis – a company at the centre of the grooming scandal, has revealed that many customers were asking for white or ‘local’ drivers, it was reported last night.

Simon Danczuk, the town’s Labour MP, branded the development ‘extremely worrying’ but the council said Car 2000 was doing nothing wrong.

The firm’s boss, Stephen Campbell, manager of Car 2000, told the Guardian: ‘We have had quite a lot of customers requesting what they call a local driver.

‘A bit insane if you consider that most of the [Asian] lads were born in Rochdale. But it’s a business and we have got a duty to do what the customer asks us to.

‘I don’t think we can discriminate against the customer in the same way. It is a business at the end of the day. We have a large bank loan to pay back.’

Mr Campbell said around 20 drivers had left Eagle Taxis after the two drivers were prosecuted.

He added: ‘One of them got a knife held to his throat, one of them had his car smashed up.’

Mr Campbell said the exodus cost him an estimated £40,000 – 30 per cent of the firm’s annual profit: ‘It was devastating.’

He said: ‘The Asian drivers are harder working, they do what they are asked and they don’t complain about it.

‘If the public could actually see these [Asian] people close up and see what they are about, I don’t think they would be asking for white drivers.

‘We do get a lot of customers ringing up and asking us for a particular Asian guy as well.’

But he said customers who had asked for a white driver might have to wait as long as 20 minutes -compared with the average wait of three minutes.

Mr Danczuk said: ‘This is extremely worrying and a stark reminder of the impact grooming scandals have had on northern towns. It must act as a wake-up call to politicians who just pretend tensions like this don’t exist and bury their heads in the sand.’

Mark Widdup, of Rochdale Council, said: ‘There is currently nothing in the conditions of their licence which state that they cannot operate such a policy, just as some firms choose to offer customers only female drivers.’

South Sudan sexual violence “rampant,” 2-year-old raped -UN

By Louis Charbonneau

UNITED NATIONS, Oct 20 (Reuters) – Rape and other forms of sexual violence by all sides in South Sudan’s civil war have become so widespread that a 2-year-old child was among the victims, the U.N. special representative on sexual violence in armed conflict said on Monday.

“In my 30 years of experience, I’ve never witnessed anything like what I saw in Bentiu,” Zainab Hawa Bangura told reporters about a recent trip to the northern town, one of South Sudan’s regions worst hit by the conflict.

“The IDPs (internally displaced persons) seeking refuge there face a combination of … insecurity, unimaginable living conditions, acute day-to-day protection concerns and rampant sexual violence,” she told reporters.

Fighting erupted in December in South Sudan – which declared independence from Sudan in 2011 – after months of political tension between President Salva Kiir and his sacked deputy and political rival, Riek Machar. Peace talks brokered by African regional bloc IGAD have yet to bring an end to the bloodshed.

“Survivors and health care workers told me heartbreaking stories of rape, gang rape, abduction, sexual slavery and forced marriage,” Bangura said. “Those who try to fight back against their attackers are often raped with objects instead. Some victims have even been raped to death.”

She said the victims included women, men, girls and boys, with 74 percent of them below the age of 18, according to South Sudanese hospital officials.

“The youngest victim they have treated is 2 years old,” Bangura said.

She said both sides in the conflict have committed sexual violence, adding that orders had been given within the military forces to perpetrate rapes on the basis of ethnicity.

Bangura added that said a radio station in Bentiu called Radio Bentiu FM was used to broadcast appeals for men to rape women and girls based on their ethnic backgrounds and what was believed to be their political loyalties.

At the end of Bangura’s trip to South Sudan, she and the government signed a communique outlining steps that would be taken to put an end to the rapes, adding that the message must be sent across the military’s chain of command, Bangura said.

She was especially concerned about the lack of psychological and medical care for the victims.

“I am also concerned about the lack of reporting of this crime due to the closure of government offices, insecurity in the country, malfunctioning police services, (and) a lack of capacity by the police and medical service providers,” she said.

The conflict in South Sudan has killed more than 10,000 people, caused over 1 million to flee and driven the country of 11 million closer to famine. By year-end, a third of the people could face the threat of starvation, the United Nations said.

Last month the United States warned Kiir and Machar to engage in serious peace talks to end nearly a year of violence in the world’s newest state or face U.N. Security Council sanctions.

* Videos* Canada hit-and-run jihadi’s friend says he heard Islamic State’s call to jihad “and he did his part here”

canadian jihadist Capture

“He became obsessed with practicing his new religion. He prayed constantly.” And yet Western authorities would have us believe that despite his zeal, despite his obsession with practicing Islam fully and correctly, he got his new religion all wrong — and did so in a way that numerous other converts to Islam and lifelong Muslims have also done. We are living in an age of absurdity, in which our leaders and the mainstream media not only spout such nonsense, but demand that we believe it on pain of charges of “bigotry” and “hatred.”

“Martin Rouleau ‘died like he wanted to,’” by Allan Woods, Toronto Star, October 20, 2014

Scroll down for videos:-

This is a photo of Martin Couture-Rouleau before his conversion to Islam

MONTREAL—For more than a year they tried. For more than a year they failed to help their friend, Martin Rouleau, see the light of day. —

Whether it was psychological troubles or honest zeal, the young entrepreneur from St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, the friend to all and father to one young boy was lost to a world of conspiracy theories, hatred and religion-fuelled anger that led to what intelligence and security experts have been fretting about for years: a homegrown, radicalized terrorist acting out on Canadian soil.

“It was a terrorist attack and Martin died like he wanted to. That’s what happened,” one close friend, who asked not to be named, told the Star.

Martin Rouleau adopted the Facebook handle “Ahmad Rouleau,” or the Twitter name “Abu Ibrahim AlCanadi,” or created his account on Ummaland, the Muslim social media site, wearing the face covering of a jihadi bearing his copy of the Qur’an like a trophy.(see above)

Rouleau co-owned an industrial cleaning company that specialized in pressure washing the exteriors of buildings. About a year-and-a-half ago, Rouleau said his company had been robbed and he became enraged by his inability to get the authorities to take action against the culprit, according to the friend who asked not to be named.

He turned to the Internet. He became obsessed by the news headlines.

“It was bizarre and extreme. He was surely depressed,” said Jonathan Prince. “I think he was depressed and that’s what led him to it. It was weird. He was normal one day and then changed the next.”

He became obsessed with practicing his new religion. He prayed constantly. He sprouted a heavy beard, but Rouleau’s friends never considered him to be a threat to himself or to others.

Instead, he spent all his energies during visits with friends trying to convince them about his newfound faith, trying to convert them.

“He thought it was true. He believed it all,” Prince said. “He thought that of all the religions it was Islam that was the truest.”

His Facebook posts stretching back to May 2013 touch on the cause of Palestinians, the righteousness of Islam over Christianity and post several photos of Prime Minister Stephen Harper and other world leaders with orthodox Jews. His Twitter account, in which he takes the AlCanadi moniker commonly used by foreigners that have gone to fight with Islamic terror groups like al-Qaeda and ISIS, has no posts but follows a number of ISIS-related users whose focus is the attempt to establish an Islamic caliphate in Syria and Iraq.

Earlier this summer, the two friends said, Rouleau was stopped by authorities while trying to leave the country.

“He did this because he wanted to reach paradise and assure paradise for his family. He wanted to be a martyr,” said the friend who asked not to be named.

But he also defended some of the most despicable acts for which ISIS has been roundly condemned. When ISIS started decapitating hostages, he defended his faith.

“He became an extremist. He wanted to go fight jihad but they wouldn’t let him do it. The caliphate called all the Muslims on earth to fight. He listened to what they had to say and he did his part here.”

The Canadian soldier who died a day after being run down by a suspected homegrown terrorist has been identified as 53-year-old Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent.

Quebec provincial police confirmed the news Tuesday after a news conference at which they said they believe the attacker, Martin Rouleau, may have been lying in wait for more than two hours before running his victims down with his car.

Police said the investigation into the hit-and-run that killed one and injured another has so far uncovered evidence that Rouleau had been sitting in the parking lot outside of a federal building that offers support to Canadian military veterans and other personnel as early as 9:15 a.m. on Monday. The attack in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, south of Montreal, occurred around 11:30 a.m.

Rouleau, 25, was shot by police after a brief chase that ended about four kilometres from the site of the hit-and-run and died several hours later in hospital.

“He was sitting in the car in the parking lot,” said police spokesman Lt. Guy Lapointe. “The working thesis is that this was a deliberate act.”

Police also revealed that one of the two victims had been wearing a Canadian Forces uniform. They haven’t released the name of the surviving victim. That soldier’s injuries were described as less serious, but police were not able to provide an update on the individual’s condition.

Quebec provincial police examine the wreckage of car driven by a man suspected of running down two soldiers in the parking lot of a shopping centre  in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Que. Police shot and killed the suspect following a chase. One of the injured soldiers died Tuesday morning.

Police in Pakistan Torture a Christian Family Because Their Son Married a Muslim Girl

LAHORE, Pakistan: The family of a Christian boy named Akram Masih, to include the females, were severely beaten and tortured by Policemen and Muslim extremists in Multan, Pakistan. These policemen entered his home by climbing the walls. They arrested the boy and placed him under their custody because he had contracted a marriage with a Muslim girl named Maria Bibi, who is from District Shiekhupura.

Advocate Sardar Mushtaq Gill of Human Rights Defender and Chief of LEAD was contacted by Moderator Bishop Asher Kamran of the Methodist Church of Pakistan, requesting legal assistance for the boy’s release. He also stated that he had already submitted an application to the IG in Punjab, Lahore requesting dismissal of the false FIR No.1093/2014, that was registered at Police Station Factory Area, Shiekhupura, in which the boy was arrested. The police had also booked one Christian relative of the boy from Lahore.

The Christian boy, originally from Multan and the Muslim girl from Sheikhupura, fell in love with each other over the phone. The girl left her home and went to see her lover in Multan, where they both got married, according to Islamic Sharia law. The boy had changed his name to Muhammad Akram and converted from Christianity to Islam to save himself and his family from police and extremists, but the conversion proved useless on his arrest.

The police took the couple and the other Christian relative arrested, from Multan and locked them up in the Police Station Factory Area, Shiekhupura.

The father of the other arrested Christian man named Kherait Masih also contacted Aric John, Advocate of the High Court, and senior counsel of LEAD, for legal assistance for his son, who is totally innocent.

Mr. Gill, along with Aric John made contact with the concerned SHO and handed over all documents for proof of the couple’s marriage and the conversion of the boy from Christian to Muslim. The SHO said that the boy would be appearing in the court of Mr. Matieon Rehman, Judicial Magistrate, Tehsil Courts Ferozwala, District Shiekhupura to record a statement under section 164 Cr. PC and if the girl gives a statement that substantiates the boy’s claim, the police would release them.

Although, the next day, both of the Christians appeared before the court, where upon pressure from the Muslim extremists developed. Mr. Gill was also instructed and directed by other lawyers of the concerned Bar Association to be careful because two days earlier in a similar case, one man was shot dead in the courtroom during the hearing.

The couple was given a chance in front of the magistrate to talk to each other by ordering the lawyers from both sides to vacate the court room, but the girl betrayed him and recorded her statement against the Christian boy with tears. Both Christian boys were then sent to judicial lockup. The boy disclosed to Mr. Gill that the girl was threatened by her family, that if she gave a statement in his favour, they would kill them both. He satisfied himself by saying that she had actually saved his life by recording the statement against him.

It is forbidden under Islamic Sharia law for a Muslim woman to marry a Christian man. Although, a Muslim man is allowed to marry a Christian woman. It is permitted for a Muslim woman to marry a Christian, but only after his conversion from Christianity to Islam. In Pakistan, the level of religious extremism is too high to tolerate the marriage between a Christian man and Muslim woman, even if the Christian converted to Islam.

This is the main reason for the lack of religious liberty, freedom and the grave violations of fundamental human rights in Pakistan.  It is also the main cause of Christian persecution and misuse of Islamic Blasphemy Laws that are used to persecute the religious minorities.




What is extreme?


Home Secretary Theresa May has proposed a significant shift in government policy, expanding the counter-terrorism strategy to include fighting what she describes as “the full spectrum of extremism”.

The Conservatives have long-argued that they have sought to tackle both violent and non-violent extremism, but existing legislation and the courts have always limited restrictions to those organisations or individuals who it can be demonstrated are concerned in terrorism.

Now Mrs May is proposing a future Tory government introduce banning orders and extremist disruption orders for activities that clear a much lower bar. The model “will reflect the existing proscription system” for terrorist groups, but the criteria will be different.

theresa may Capture

So what would constitute an extremist group? There are three kinds of activity listed as reasons for designating an organisation or an individual as extremist:

  • spreading, inciting, promoting or justifying hatred on the grounds of disability, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation and/or transgender identity
  • proposing to overthrow democracy
  • members of the public, or a section of it, will be harmed

Harm is defined as:

  • at risk from acts of violence or other criminal acts
  • at risk from public disorder
  • at risk from harassment, alarm or distress
  • a threat to the functioning of democracy

This is a very broad definition of extremism. Any group or individual whose activities puts a section of society “at risk” of alarm or distress could fall under its scope.

Might a trade union whose actions alarm or distress employers be regarded as an extremist organisation? What about a newspaper that publishes stories or images that alarm or distress a section of the public? Or a political group that argues against gay marriage or for the abolition of the monarchy?

Of course, the Conservatives deny the proposals are designed to do anything of the sort. They say that a “decision to ban a group would be subject to an immediate review by the High Court to ensure it was not obviously flawed”.

But they also say that “the strategy will aim to undermine and eliminate extremism in all its forms: not just Islamist extremism but neo-Nazism and other forms of extremism too”. The difficulty with such a wide legal definition of what is extreme is that it leaves the door open for attacks on anyone whose views differ from those of the home secretary.

The proposal may be eye-catching, but it faces significant challenges. The legal establishment is likely to raise more than an eye-brow at the notion that “a risk of alarm and distress” is enough to impose court orders banning or limiting the activities of groups and individuals.

The senior human rights lawyer Hugh Tomlinson believes the plans would be massively costly as well as legally problematic. “Wide-ranging banning orders of this sort which involve huge restrictions on freedom of speech and political expression are always going to be legally extremely difficult to justify,” he says.

“Even without the European Convention on Human Rights, English judges would view this kind of measure with the gravest suspicion.”

As well as legal objections, there are already concerns about the principles at stake. Senior Conservatives from the libertarian wing of the party have expressed disquiet at plans they fear limit the right to free speech, and civil liberty organisations argue that the measures are an affront to the long-standing traditions of this country.

Perhaps the most important consideration is whether such ideas would actually work. There must be a risk that banning groups or restricting the activities of individuals simply makes them more attractive rather than less.

However, the home secretary remains convinced that only by extending banning orders beyond existing terrorism legislation can we deal with those that “preach hatred on our streets”.

“It is important if we are going to defeat the ideology that lies behind terrorist activities and deal with extremism of all sorts that we take extra powers,” she told the BBC today. “There is a thread between extremism and violence and we need to be able to deal with it to keep people safe and secure.”

There is a long way to go before these proposals become the law of the land. They are promises for a future Conservative manifesto and would only become government policy in the event of a Tory victory at the general election in 2015. They will inevitably undergo fierce internal party debate and wider criticism.

That said, May, with the backing of the prime minister, expresses herself determined to do just that.

Tommy Robinson, former EDL leader, recalled to prison

Stephen Lennon aka Tommy Robinson

Stephen Lennon aka Tommy Robinson, tweeted that he had been recalled to prison to prevent him from “exposing the facts” at Oxford Union

The founder and former leader of the English Defence League will not talk at the Oxford Union as he is back in jail.

Stephen Lennon, who calls himself Tommy Robinson, was sentenced in January to 18 months in prison for mortgage fraud.

He was released in June under licence and had been due to debate at the prestigious union on Thursday.

A statement on Facebook from his supporters said: “Tommy Robinson has been recalled to prison for responding to a threat on Twitter.”

‘Police persecution’


His lawyers said the recall was for a fixed term of 28 days, according to a spokesman for the union.

Mr Lennon tweeted: “I was going to speak this Thursday exposing police persecution and tactics.

“Police are at my house recalling me back to prison for my licence, reason given that I responded to a death threat targeting my family.

“All this to prevent me exposing the facts on Thursday at Oxford Union.”

An email was sent to students which said: “Tommy Robinson has recently been recalled into custody and so is unlikely to be able to speak.”

Lennon had previously been due to talk at the Union in September last year but the event was cancelled amid security concerns.

The institution said at the time it could not afford the security for the events.

Mr Lennon co-founded the English Defence League in 2009 and left last year.

He now works with the Quilliam Foundation, a counter-extremism think tank.

A Ministry of Justice spokesperson said: “We do not comment on individuals.

“Offenders on Home Detention Curfew must comply with the conditions of their curfew or release licence. If they fail to do so, they can be immediately recalled to custody.”

The union hopes Mr Lennon will speak later this term.

What laws currently cover trolling in the UK?

troll Capture

Internet trolls could face two years in jail under new laws. But how does the British legal system currently police online abuse, asks Tom de Castella.

The sending of rape threats to Chloe Madeley is the latest disturbing case of trolling. Now the government says it will act to put trolls in jail for two years.

Nick McAleenan, a media lawyer at JMW Solicitors, says there are three main ways that trolls are prosecuted at the moment.

In England and Wales, the Malicious Communications Act 1988 covers comments that cause “distress or anxiety”. Similar legislation applies in Northern Ireland. Sean Duffy was jailed under the act for 18 weeks in 2011 after he made “grossly offensive” comments about children who had killed themselves. Then there’s the Communications Act 2003 which applies across the United Kingdom. It covers threats but often overlaps with the 1988 act, McAleenan says. It was used to jail a man who posted offensive messages aimed at the families of Jade Goody and John Paul Massey, a Liverpool boy mauled to death by a dog.

The third Act is the Protection from Harassment Act 1997, which deals with stalking both on and offline. It applies in England and Wales, while Scotland and Northern Ireland have similar legislation. It can be pursued in both civil and criminal courts. It might have been used to prosecute Brenda Leyland, who killed herself after she was revealed to have sent up to 50 tweets a day about the parents of Madeleine McCann. It might be argued that what she did could also have been prosecuted under libel law.

The police are often reluctant to get directly involved in online stalking, McAleenan says. But recently there has been a rise in the police issuing warnings – known as a Police Information Notice – to suspected trolls.

Critics sometimes question the balance between enforcement and the right to free speech. It can be a fine line. When someone on Twitter accused Tom Daley of letting down his dead father by not winning gold at the London Olympics, the police made an arrest, apparently under the 1988 act. And the 2003 act was used to convict a man who made a joke about blowing up Robin Hood airport in 2010. It was later quashed after a campaign backed by comedians. McAleenan believes the current laws are sufficient. The problem is a lack of resources, and the need for further education of the public and police about what constitutes an offence.

The answer

  • Malicious Communications Act 1988 – messages causing distress
  • Communications Act 2003 – threats
  • Protection from Harassment Act 1997 – stalking
  • But no clear definition of trolling

The 22-year-old woman, called Khadijah Dare, is from Lewisham, south east London, but she moved to the Middle Eastern country in 2012 to join the anti-government fighters there. She is so determined to enact jihad on behalf of Isis that she has expressed her desire – via social media – to kill a British or American person.

Following the beheading of James Foley, which was shown to the world via a YouTube upload, she tweeted, under the name of Muhajirah fi Sham, which means ‘immigrant in Syria': ‘Any links 4 da execution of da journalist plz. Allahu Akbar. UK must b shaking up haha. I wna b da 1st UK woman 2 kill a UK or US terrorist![sic]‘

Now married to a Turkish-Swedish Isis fighter who goes by the name of Abu Bakr, she has a toddler son there with her. According to The Mirror, she regularly uses her Twitter account to post photos of the heads of beheaded men on railings, and ask how to best teach her son the Koran.

Earlier this year, she called for more Muslims to join Isis in their quest to make an Islamic state: ‘All da people back in dar ul kufr [land of disbelievers] what are you waiting for … hurry up and join da caravan to where the laws of allah is implemented. No one from Lewisham has come here apart from an 18-year-old sister shame on all those people who afford fancy meals and clothes and do not make hirja [the word for Mohammad’s journey]. Shame on you.’

Around 500 Britons are believed to be fighting for Isis, with many of them using social media to communicate with others and to send messages back home. One tweeted: ‘Seeing these so called ‘Muslims’ send condolences to James Foley’s family is disgusting. No dignity whatsoever…’

As for plans to combat Isis and their followers, we’re guessing and hoping that David Cameron will have something to say following his‘meetings on the situation in Iraq/Syria’. As for Barack Obama, he has promised that ‘justice will be done’.

Man jailed over anti-Semitic tweet to Luciana Berger MP

A Merseyside man has been jailed over an anti-Semitic tweet to Liverpool MP Luciana Berger.

The Government has welcomed the jailing of a 21-year-old Nazi sympathiser for sending a “grossly offensive” anti-Semitic tweet to Liverpool Labour MP Luciana Berger, reports The Liverpool Echo.

Garron Helm send a tweet showing a Holocaust-era yellow star superimposed on the MP’s forehead with the hashtag “Hitler was right”.

When police searched Helm’s home they found Nazi memorabilia including a flag bearing the SS symbol and material from British extreme right-wing group National Action.

Helm referred to himself online as The Noble Wolf and used a Twitter account called Aethelwulf, which translates from Old English as Noble Wolf.

But in reality Helm was an immature loner who found friends online in extremist groups.

He pleaded guilty to sending an offensive, indecent or obscene message and was sentenced to four weeks in jail – though he is expected to serve half of this. He was also ordered to pay an £80 victim surcharge to Ms Berger after the judge upgraded the offence to one considered racially motivated.

Liverpool Magistrates Court heard that Helm sent the tweet in a state of “anger and political frustration” in the early hours of August 7.

The tweet called the MP a “communist Jewess” and read: “You can always trust a Jew to show their true colours eventually.”

Ms Berger, the shadow minister for public health, was described in court as being “deeply shocked by the entire incident and the link to National Action, which she knows to be an extremist group”.

District Judge Andrew Shaw described Helm’s actions as calculated and “extremely abusive and upsetting”.

He added that the Nazi paraphernalia found in his house showed his true motivation for sending the tweet.

Mark Ellis, defending, described Helm, of Thomson Road, Litherland, Merseyside, as a loner with a troubled past.

The court heard that Helm was one of 11 children but the family had broken apart after his father died in a work accident and his mother had a mental breakdown, leaving him with no one to turn to except extremist “friends” online.

Helm, who was expelled from college in Southport earlier this year, accepted the message was fundamentally wrong. He also sent a handwritten letter of apology to the MP.

Communities Minister Stephen Williams said: “We welcome today’s guilty verdict which shows there is no place for purveyors of hate to hide. This ruling sends out a message to all those who use social media to send out antisemitic, anti-Muslim, homophobic and racist comments that it is unacceptable and that we are serious about ensuring that those involved are arrested and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.”

Berger said following sentencing: “This sentence sends a clear message that hate crime is not tolerated in our country. I hope this case serves as an encouragement to others to report hate crime whenever it rears its ugly head.”

A Community security Trust spokesman said: “Luciana Berger MP should be thanked for her role in this important case. CST welcomes the sentence and hopes it serves as a much needed warning to others.”

Woman is thrown out of Paris opera after cast refused to perform unless she removed Muslim veil

France’s Socialist government today pledged to toughen up its anti face-covering law after a veiled Muslim woman was ejected from a major Paris opera house.

In an incident which has divided opinion in the city’s liberal arts community, cast members performing La Traviate ‘objected strongly’ to the presence of a woman in the audience wearing a niqab-type veil.

‘A singer spotted her in the front row during the second act,’ said Jean-Philippe Thiellay, director of the Bastille Opera, which was opened by Socialist president Francois Mitterand in 1989.

‘Some performers said they didn’t want to sing,’ said Mr Thiellay, who confirmed that she was kicked out.

There has been a ban on Muslims covering their face in public in France since the introduction of a law in 2011.

Women living on housing estates on the outskirts of major cities like Paris are regularly criminalised with a fine, but this is the first incident of someone being ejected from an artistic venue.

So far unnamed, she is believed to be a well-off woman from a Gulf State, and was attending the performance with a friend.

Referring to a security guard, Mr Thiellay said: ‘He told her that in France there is a ban of this nature, asked her to either uncover her face or leave the auditorium.

‘The man asked the woman to get up, they left. It was unpleasant getting her to leave.

‘But there was a misunderstanding of the law and the lady either had to respect it or leave,’

But other opera lovers in a city historically renowned for its tolerance were less impressed.

‘What possible harm could a woman sitting quietly in the audience with face covered do to anyone?’ said Guy Laurent, a regular at the Bastille Opera.

‘The woman would clearly have felt utterly humiliated by what happened – French culture should be more tolerant.

‘It is not the job of theatres to enforce petty laws.’

The incident happened on October 3, but it is only now that it is becoming a national polemic.

Technically the woman now faces a fine of just over £180, although there is not thought to have been any police involvement.

The woman and her friend were not refunded any of their ticket price.

A spokesman for France’s Ministry of Culture today said it was ‘producing a new set of rules’ to make sure the so-called ‘burka ban’ was better enforced in theatres, museums and other public institutions.

France,which is home to some five million Muslims, was the first European country to ban the full-face Islamic veil in public places.

Belgium followed suit soon afterwards, but there is no veil ban at all in Britain, despite calls by a minority of right wing MPs for one.

Saudi Arabia faces outcry over death sentence for Shia faith leader

Nimr Baqir al-Nimr’s conviction for sedition adding to unrest and promoting sectarian hatred, says Human Rights Watch

Saudi Arabia is facing an international outcry and accusations of promoting sectarian hatred after a Shia Muslim religious leader from the country’s volatile eastern province was sentenced to death.

Sheikh Nimr Baqir al-Nimr, who led protests in Qatif at the height of the Arab spring in 2011, was convicted on Wednesday of sedition and other charges in a case that has been followed closely by Shias in the kingdom and neighbouring Bahrain.

Shia Muslims make up 10%-15% of the population of Sunni-ruled Saudi Arabia, which bills itself as playing a lead role in the fight against the jihadis of Islamic State (Isis) in Syria and Iraq. Riyadh has supported Sunni groups fighting to overthrow Bashar al-Assad but denies backing Isis.

State prosecutors had reportedly asked for Nimr to be crucified. The sentence is thought likely to be commuted on appeal.

Nimr was arrested in 2012 and ill-treated during his two-year detention, much of it spent in solitary confinement. He was denied surgery for bullet wounds suffered when he was arrested. He was charged with “disobeying the ruler”, “inciting sectarian strife”, and encouraging and leading demonstrations.

In Iran, Saudi Arabia’s chief regional rival and the political centre of the Shia world, the foreign ministry warned on Thursday that execution would have “dire consequences”. It called Nimr an ayatollah, giving him the second most senior clerical title in the Shia hierarchy. Iran, like Saudi Arabia, uses capital punishment.

In London the Foreign Office stated that it was aware of the sentencing, adding: “The UK opposes the death penalty as a matter of principle.”

The Saudi authorities have portrayed the cleric as an “instigator of discord and rioting”. But Nimr’s supporters and family have denied that he incited violence.

In a BBC interview, Nimr said he backed “the roar of the word against authorities rather than weapons”. The arrest of his brother and other relatives after sentencing has fuelled anger that is being ventilated on Twitter and other social media.

“Saudi Arabia’s harsh treatment of a prominent Shia cleric is only adding to existing sectarian discord and unrest,” said Joe Stork, deputy Middle East director at Human Rights Watch. “Saudi Arabia’s path to stability in the eastern province lies in ending systematic discrimination against Shia citizens, not in death sentences.”

Amnesty International described Nimr’s sentencing as part of a wider Saudi government crackdown on dissent.

Shia and Sunni groups said they were extremely alarmed by the sentence. “Ayatollah al-Nimr is a respected Muslim figure in Saudi Arabia,” 10 organisations said in statement. “He is a faith leader, reformist and human rights activist, who has campaigned for an end to discriminatory laws against the Shia minority. The sentencing will further inflame sectarian tensions and provide encouragement to extremist groups such as Isis to continue their persecution of religious minorities.”

Toby Matthiesen, a Cambridge expert on Saudi Arabia, said: “In the last two years Nimr has become known by Shia across the world. For many Salafis and Sunnis with anti-Shia leanings he has become a real hate figure. In the context of Isis, the Saudi royal family is trying to legitimise itself in the eyes of Sunnis by being tough. Nimr was a revolutionary who called for non-violent protests and the downfall of the Al Saud, but also for Assad to go. He wasn’t sectarian.”

Yusif al-Khoei, of the London-based Al-Khoei Foundation, said he was “appalled” by the news and with others was considering boycotting a Saudi-organised conference on inter-religious dialogue in Vienna.
