Jews Protecting Themselves!

The self-styled Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC) of London is a Khomeinist and pro-terrorist propaganda operation.

Here’s some of its handiwork – the London version of the annual Israel hatefest known as “al Quds Day”, an invention of Khomeini himself:

The IHRC has yet to issue a press release about Iranians suffering under and demonstrating against tyranny.

Israel and Jews are another matter. They get lots of attention.

In May the IHRC published a scurrilous report on the Community Security Trust (CST).

The CST’s mission is to keep British Jews safe. Evidently this work rankles certain British Islamists.

Inayat Bunglawala is among that number. His “iEngage” Islamist spinning website keenly noted the IHRC’s smear of the CST.

Inayat is, after all, the man who thought the aftermath of the hideous firebombing of an Islamic centre in Luton was a good occasion to say this in the Guardian:

The mosque management has also said that it now intends to “invest approximately £6,000 on security measures” for the mosque. Such a step seems to be a sensible precaution to take against possible future attacks but I hope it does not go down the same route as the Community Security Trust which helps provide “physical security” in the form of trained guards at Jewish events. A better approach must surely be to work with the police to ensure that they have the necessary support and resources to protect all communities.

Oh, Jews again. Bad, bad Jews, protecting themselves (working closely with the police, by the way). Bunglawala is so transparent.

The CST has issued a comprehensive response to the IHRC report, and it is devastating. Two excerpts:

The Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC) have published a briefing paper, “Concerns regarding demonisation of Islam and Muslims by Community Security Trust publications”[i], which accuses CST of deliberately misrepresenting and demonising Islam and Muslims, in order to generate Islamophobia. By analysing a series of articles written by CST and published on the CST website, they accuse CST of using intentionally deceptive language with the “objective of distorting the image of both Islam and Muslims.”[ii]

CST wholly denies the entirely unfounded allegations made by IHRC. The IHRC briefing is full of basic errors, distortions and misrepresentations that completely alter the meaning of the articles that it claims to analyse. It contains supposed quotes and arguments in CST articles that do not exist; and omits relevant context from the quotes and articles that it claims to analyse. Worst of all, however, the IHRC makes these claims in order to accuse CST and its staff of propagating Islamophobia, when nothing could be further from the truth.

CST has no direct contact with IHRC, and is concerned as to why a group that ostensibly fights racism should attack another anti-racist organisation in this manner. Of far greater concern, however, is the mischief and discord that IHRC’s briefing may cause if it is at all believed or repeated by others who are sincerely involved in the struggle against racism and extremism. The central allegation in the IHRC briefing – that CST’s writers employ deception in order to generate bigotry and hatred against Muslims – is as serious and damaging as it is possible to imagine. It is not CST’s practice to sue for libel. We are a community-based charity, and our time and money is better spent doing our job: combating racism and antisemitism, protecting the Jewish community and helping to build a more harmonious society for all. Rather, it is CST’s sincere hope that all concerned will take the time to compare IHRC’s claims with the reality of what is actually written by CST authors; and will appropriately dismiss IHRC’s claims and desist from repeating them.

Do be careful out there, boys.
