More lies and scaremongering about Muslims and Islam from Hasan Afzal of Stand for Peace. The target this time is a conference which aims to educate Muslims on the virtues and excellence of fasting and praying in Ramadan.
Afzal is calling people to action and judging by the comments on our favourite Islamophobia award winning blog Harry’s Place he is managing to propagate P.T.S.D. very successfully. Here is his rallying cry
On the 8th of July 2012, the Grand Connaught Rooms in London will host a conference featuring several hate preachers. Their repertoire includes justifying suicide bombings, glorifying jihad, promoting venomous homophobia, spreading crude antisemitism, and encouraging reprehensible bigotry against Shia Muslims.
Without going through every point I will pick just one. Afzal writes that Sheik Haitham al Haddad supports F.G.M. This is an outrageous and probably libelous claim, as no Muslim scholar will support something that is Haram in Islam.
How much longer are we expected to allow this petty failure of an individual to conduct witch hunts against some of the leading Islamic scholars of our time? He has no background of Islamic knowledge to give any weight to his nefarious claims.
Irony indeed that Afzal is calling a conference with the title “Month of Mercy ” a “Jihadist conference” and he is calling people to mercilesly hound the venue providers the Connaught Rooms, with phone calls and e.mails.
Zionist bullying tactics exposed yet again.
According to the Stand for Peace website the Connaught Rooms have cancelled this event. Hasan Afzal is claiming this as a victory for himself and the readers of Harrys Place who he called into action to apply pressure on the venue management.
After a successful campaign by Harry’s Place readers and others around the web, I am pleased to announce that the Jihadist conference that was suppose to take place on the 8th of July 2012 has been cancelled.
Interesting to see that Afzal makes it clear just who is the audience that he performs for. Amongst the comments of appreciation on the Harrys Place blog are the promise of many more ziobiscuits and perhaps even some kosher Good Boy choco drops if he can have more Islamic events cancelled. Such as the one due to be held soon at the Emirates stadium, being such a useful shabbos goy obviously has to have its rewards.
Afzal might have been a bit hasty in claiming the victory as entirely his own however, as we read that the English Defence League and The Casuals United Team or C.U.N.T. (see the heading on their blog) had also taken up the “Call to Action” and were threatening to protest outside the event. According to the blog “Islamophobia Watch” this is not the first time that the E.D.L. have answered the call from Harrys Place read all about it here.
However, the international counterjihad movement is not the only source of inspiration for the EDL. They also take their cue from the terrorism-supporting Zionist blog Harry’s Place, as is shown by their enthusiastic response to a “call to action” against a so-called “jihadist conference” in London next month, posted at HP by Hasan Afzal of British Muslims for Israel.
A rather unfortunate alliance but one which clearly puts the all the racists and Islamophobes together.
According to the Casuals United blog
After discussions with our London reps, the venue have agreed to cancel. Well done to them!
“The safety of our staff and guests is our absolute priority at all times. After careful consideration and liaison with the local police force we have taken the decision to cancel the booking.”
So we are starting to get the real picture now. Hasan Afzal compiles a dossier of cobbled together out takes from various talks scholars have given and with his evident total lack of Islamic understanding manages to provide no context to explain what has been said. He then posts a call to action on Harrys place which mobilises individuals who are pro Israel, groups of racists and football thugs who bombard the venue providers with the misinformation they have been fed and make threats of protesting outside. But interestingly the Connaught Rooms management were not taken in by any of this circus, what they did was speak to the local police for advice and the local police instead of doing their job to uphold public law and order in the face of potentially rampaging hordes of drunk racists and football hooligans advised them to cancel the event in the “interests of health and safety”.
Some commentators on Harrys Place are not entirely happy with their new coalition with the E.D.L. and Casuals United but others had this to say
Sometimes it doesn’t matter how you get there as long as you arrive.
So there we have it, no fear of violence or hatred from the speakers booked to expound on the virtues of fasting and praying in the month of Ramadan, rather according to this email from the management of the Connaught Rooms fear of violence against their property and staff by our home grown racist thugs stirred and goaded into action by Afzal and Harrys Place. I rally do not think Harrys place should be congratulating themselves on their ability to mobilise racist thugs.
