MUSLIM COUNCILLORS who refused to honour a Royal Marine veteran at a meeting in Birmingham have been warned they will need “24-hour protection” unless they stand down.
This is what happens when you allow Muslims into Western governments.
TWO Birmingham councillors sparked a storm of protest – after refusing to take part in a standing ovation for a Midland George Cross hero.
More than 100 Birmingham City Council members put aside their political differences to honour Afghanistan veteran Lance Corporal Matthew Croucher with the ovation at their monthly meeting. But Respect (HAH!) Party councillors Salma Yaqoob and Mohammed Ishtiaq sparked furious anger by remaining seated.
A former soldier, who did not wish to be identified, claimed Respect Party representatives Salma Yaqoob and Mohammed Ishtiaq would require a round-the-clock guard unless they apologised for the snub at Birmingham City Council.
They refused to applaud Afghanistan hero Lance Corporal Matthew Croucher when he visited Tuesday’s meeting of the authority as a guest and to highlight his work with the Royal British Legion.
The snub outraged other councillors and left the ex-soldier fuming. He said: “I know many ex-servicemen who are very angry about this. “There will be repercussions if this pair are not kicked off the council, they will need 24-hour protection,” claimed the soldier, who said he was speaking for many ex-servicemen.
He feared the action could also play into the hands of the likes of the English Defence League. (the likes of????)
Councillor Yaqoob said she had no intention of resigning and was not concerned about the threats.(Perfect)
“I have had support from members of the armed forces who agree with the protest. Our action was not directed personally against that particular soldier. I have no intentions of standing down,” said Coun Yaqoob.
SAY NO TO THE NEW MOSQUE
OVERLOOKING THE ROYAL MILITARY ACADEMY SANDHURST
FREE TO DIE ON FOREIGN SOIL
DENIED THE FREEDOM TO SPEAK
Our soldiers are silenced. Not allowed to voice an opinion about plans for a new mosque at the gates of the Royal Military Academy Sandhust. Denied the right to say that 100 foot minarets may pose a security threat to our military. Silenced by the politicians who send them to defend our values in Afghanistan. Good enough to die for Britain but denied the right of free speech.
Support our soldiers and demand that they be given the freedom to defend the RMAS.
