The Beginning Of The End

Just when it seems this once green and pleasant land couldn't get any crazier, something like this happens.
Tony Blair, the British prime appeaser minister is being urged by a committee of advisors he had set up after the 7th July attacks, to abolish holocaust remembrance day in case it upsets the UK's "peaceful Muslim" community.
It would also appear that this move is being spearheaded by none other than the 'Muslim council of Britain', the same group that has
boycotted the holocaust memorial 2 years in a row because it didn't include the imaginary genocide against Muslims by Israel.
You'd think that after all the Jewish community has done for Great Britain, in the arts, media, business world etc... (not to mention the 60,000 British Jews that fought with the Allies in Europe, or the 30,000 Jews from the British mandate that fought with the Allies in the middle east [even after the British betrayed the Jews by handing over the land promised for Israel, to the Axis loyal Arabs]) that even considering something like this would be out of the question.
But once again, the Jews will be offered as a sacrifice to the enemies of the free world in order to buy a bit more time. At most we can hope to be seen as the canary in the coalmine, a taste of things to come for the rest of the UK because as the past dictates, what starts with the Jews, never ends with the Jews.

ADVISERS appointed by Tony Blair after the London bombings are proposing to scrap the Jewish Holocaust Memorial Day because it is regarded as offensive to Muslims.

The draft proposals have been prepared by committees appointed by Blair to tackle extremism. He has promised to respond to the plans, but the threat to the Holocaust Day has provoked a fierce backlash from the Jewish community.

Holocaust Day was established by Blair in 2001 after a sustained campaign by Jewish leaders to create a lasting memorial to the 6m victims of Hitler. It is marked each year on January 27.

The Queen is patron of the charity that organises the event and the Home Office pays £500,000 a year to fund it. The committees argue that the special status of Holocaust Memorial Day fuels extremists’ sense of alienation because it “excludes” Muslims.

The recommendation, drawn up by four committees including those dealing with imams and mosques, and Islamaphobia and policing, has the backing of Sir Iqbal Sacranie, secretary-general of the Muslim Council of Britain. A Home Office spokesman said it would consider the proposals for a separate Genocide Day for all faiths but emphasised that it regarded the Holocaust as a “defining tragedy in European history”.

Mike Whine, a director of the British Board of Deputies, said: “Of course we will oppose this move. The whole point is to remember the darkest day of modern history.”

Louise Ellman, Labour MP for Liverpool Riverside and a Holocaust Memorial trustee, said: “These Muslim groups should stop trying to evade the enormity of the Holocaust.”

The seven committees finalise their recommendations today at St George’s House, Windsor, and will submit them to Blair and Charles Clarke, the home secretary, on September 22.
