From Elsewhere: The situation in Tower Hamlets is getting worse.
This piece from Esmerelda Weatherwax of New English Review shows how appallingly Islamic groups have behaved in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. Grants for community groups are dished out primarily to Islamic groups, housing repairs are concentrated on areas controlled by Muslim Bangladeshis, and attempts have been made to sully the skyline on the Isle of Dogs with yet another mosque. The East London Mosque, a major political player in the borough, has repeatedly promoted Islamic extremists some of whom have attitudes to gays, non-Muslims, free women which are to be quite frank, murderous. It is no wonder that patriot groups like the EDL want to march there and point out what a foul, corrupt Islamic cesspit Tower Hamlets has become.
Esmerelda Weatherwax said:
“So why Tower Hamlets?
That is the rhetorical question asked by one “Jo Makepeace” writing in Indymedia about the EDL’s forthcoming demonstration in Tower Hamlets on 7th September. Now there may genuinely be a lady christened Josephine by her loving parents Mr and Mrs Makepeace. But Jo Makepeace is also the persona of a group of left-wingers based in Brighton.
As he/she/it/they have asked the question these are some of the reasons. The reasons for the previous demo in 2011 I detailed here; what can be added over the last two years is below.
Islam in Tower Hamlets is a many-headed beast, but with two main necks; the corruption of the Muslim dominated borough council led by Grand Vizier Lutfur Rahman and the malign influence of the East London Mosque and satellite organisations.”
Read the rest, it’s long but really worthwhile reading.
