From Elsewhere: Pro Jihadists become confident enough to show their hands in Tower Hamlets
The London Borough of Tower Hamlets has been turned into a political cesspit by the simple addition of Islamic politics. Individuals associated with and aligned with a Jamaat e Islaami front group, Islam For Europe, have not only infiltrated the local Labour Party, but have now registered their own Islamic political vehicle called ‘Tower Hamlets First’.
The blog Harry’s Place is carrying this story by Ted Jeory and it is well worth reading by anyone who wants to see just how bad things are in the Islamic Republic of Tower Hamlets.
Harry’s Place said:
Tower Hamlets has a brand new political party to vote for.
Lucky us. It’s called Tower Hamlets First.
As opposed to Tower Hamlets Last, which is the usual strategy of the people behind this new venture….the dear Mayor of Tower Hamlets and his group.
It was registered with the Electoral Commission on September 19, with Lutfur Rahman as party leader (missed that party election vote), and Cllr Alibor Choudhury nominated as Treasurer and nominating officer.
They’ve also registered a few catchy tag lines to use alongside Tower Hamlets First.
Thus we have ‘Mayor Lutfur Rahman’s Team’, ‘Lutfur Rahman’s Team’, Lutfur Rahman’s Progressive Alliance’, ‘The Mayor’s Team’, “Mayor Lutfur Rahman’s Independents’, ‘Mayor Lutfur Rahman’s Community Alliance’ [note the use of the word ‘community’], and ‘East End Independents’.
I’m not sure he’ll be able to use the word Mayor in any official tag line during an election, but let’s see.
But what’s also interesting about this is that he’s now on an official footing as as far as declaring donations go. Until now, there’s been no trace of how he’s been funded, or who his backers have been.
For example, I asked his people who funded his huge iftar party to celebrate Eid in August, but answer there came none. Ditto the various leaflets and newsletters he sends out en masse.
I suppose the truth is that ever since he was elected that dark night in October 2010, he’s been gearing up for re-election. And why not?
We’ve already seen his (ab)use of the Localism Act to dish out grants to friends at the borough’s many mosques and monocultural community groups. Today, another £242,000 was handed out. It includes another £18,000 to the Osmani Trust.
The Osmani Trust is a major “youth” organisation in Whitechapel with links to the IFE. And it was a large group of mainly excitable young men from that organisation who turned up at the town hall for the last full council meeting in September when they spent the evening whooping, hollering and hurling insults in Bengali at Labour and Tory councillors.
That was also the same evening Tory councillor Gloria Thienel was insulted as “Susan Boyle” by an angry, glaring man sitting next to me.
And it was also the same meeting that at long last the cameras were allowed to roll during the debate.
You can watch it all for free here. At 50 minutes in you can even watch the single time the Mayor spoke throughout the entire three hour meeting.
But was memorable was the laying on the table of Lutfur’s IFE card. (The Islamic Forum of Europe is based at the East London Mosque and is considered a Jamaat e Islami group which favours an Islamic Republic of Bangladesh. It was this group which was the focus of the Channel 4 Dispatches programme in 2010 when accusations were made by Jim Fitzpatrick and others – I appeared in to substantiate claims made to me to this effectby serving councillors – that they had infiltrated the council and the Labour party. Ultimately these claims led Lutfur’s expulsion from Labour.)
At 1hr 25mins in, you’ll see during a motion on the recent trip to the Tower Hamlets border by the English Defence League, Lutfur’s main man Alibor rise to speak.
He proposes an amendment to the main motion, thus:
I propose that we accept the IFE as a progressive organisation that we will aim to engage.”
As anyone who has studied the IFE or its parent organisation Jamaat e Islaami will know, IFE can be described as many things but never as a ‘progressive’ organisation. IFE has been behind the monstrous levels of Islamification that have afflicted Tower Hamlets and have made parts of the borough unsafe for Christians, Jews and others.
The situation in Tower Hamlets is beyond that where negotiation could remove the worst aspects of that borough’s governance, instead the whole council needs to be forcibly disbanded, run directly from Whitehall, reconstituted on more honest democratic lines and those involved in IFE forbidden to take part in elections for a future Tower Hamlets council.
Unfortunately as I said in an earlier post, the Department of Communities and Local Government appears to be heavily penetrated by Islamic activists and their fellow travelers and this will make it difficult for the Secretary of State, Eric Pickles to take effective action. The lack of action on places like Tower Hamlets shows that we need to remove those civil servants who are acting not in the interests of the nation, but in the interests of Islam, from Government departments.
Islamic fascists like IFE have no place in local government in Britain, no place at all.
