The Equality and Human Rights Commission announced this week that it would NOT launch an investigation into allegations of “Islamophobia” within the Conservative Party. Islamophobia is defined as an “irrational fear of Islam.” But as most know, there is nothing irrational about fearing Muslims – followers of a violent theology whose main mission is to spread Islam around the world, by force if necessary, with forced conversions and deadly conquests of non-Muslim countries, as has happened in every nation that is now Islamic ruled.
A YouGov poll last year unveiled the chilling finding that two-thirds of Tory (Conservative) members believed parts of Britain operated under sharia law. Almost half believed in the existence of No-Go zones where “non-Muslims are not able to enter” (NO, not that they are unable to enter, that they are afraid to enter), while 39% thought Islamic terror attacks “reflected widespread hostility to Britain among the Muslim community.”
Melanie Phillips in The Times writes that claims of Islamophobia are “used to silence legitimate criticism of the Muslim world”. Rod Liddle accepts that it exists; writing in the Spectator, he notes that “my own view is that there is not nearly enough Islamophobia within the Tory party”.
The Muslim Council of Britain and other Muslim organizations have been calling for an inquiry into Islamophobia for ages. But this week, the commission announced that it planned to continue its policy of inertia.
After the Conservatives published the terms of reference for their own independent inquiry, the EHRC concluded “it would not be proportionate to initiate our own investigation at this stage”.
Middle East Eye More than 100 mosques in the UK as well as a number of Islamic organizations have signed a letter criticizing the Equalities and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) for failing to carry out its role and investigate allegations of “Islamophobia” within the Conservative Party.
The letter calls for the EHRC to review its position and demands an investigation into the allegations of “Islamophobia” within the Conservative Party, while highlighting numerous cases of Conservative politicians expressing “Islamophobic” views.
“For the EHRC to deny investigating “Islamophobia” within the Conservative Party, with the general rising rate of Islamophobia is a dereliction of responsibilities that is exposing an already vulnerability British Muslim community to greater discrimination.”
Some of the mosques that signed the letter include terror-linked Finsbury Park Mosque, Glasgow Park Mosque and Waltham Forest Council of mosques.
The letter says the allegations against the Conservative Party are “extremely serious”, stressing that the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) submitted 300 allegations of Islamophobia by Conservative Party members in March, and has repeatedly renewed calls for the commission to examine Islamophobia within the Conservative Party.
“The Islamophobia allegations are in the backdrop of 47% of all religious hate crime in 2018/19 being targeted against Muslims,” the letter states.
Muslim Engagement and Development (MEND), an organisation that promotes Muslim involvement in politics and society, has criticised a lack of action regarding anti-Muslim attitudes in the party, especially as a recent poll indicatedthat 62 percent of Conservative voters think that Islam “threatens the British way of life”.
And here we have Owen Jones, a Muslim apologiest if ever there was one. Or perhaps he is he a Muslim convert?
