Muslims Get Out the Vote for Red Ken

If you’re a Londoner who plans to vote in next month’s election, and if you have habitually voted for Labour, you might want to take a hard look at some of the prominent supporters of “Red” Ken Livingstone for re-election.

According to Islam Online:

London Muslims Mobilize for Livingstone

With the London mayoral and local election fast approaching, Muslims are campaigning and mobilizing votes for incumbent Ken Livingstone, citing a record for tolerance and support.

“Livingstone is maintaining excellent community relations,” Sheikh Suliman Gani, the Imam of Tooting Islamic Centre, told IslamOnline.net.

“He has done a wonderful job and it is essential that everybody, especially Muslims vote on May 1.”

What exactly has Red Ken done to please the Muslim community of London?

Is it perhaps the police crackdown on “racist” speech, which causes the arrest of people like Lionheart, who dare to speak out against the Islamization of their country?

Is it the fact that widespread gang violence and drug-dealing goes almost unpunished?

Is it the building of mosques, and the local government support for the Olympic Mega-Mosque?

City councillor Shiria Khatun says Livingstone’s record is one big factor for his popularity among Muslims.

“He supported a multicultural policy which, with policing, has led to a reduction in racist attacks in London by more than 50 percent,” she said.

“The city personifies diversity with over 300 languages being spoken here.”

Red Ken say which way the wind was blowing quite early on, and hitched his wagon to the crescent and star before it even became fashionable.

Livingstone, one of Britain’s most colorful and popular politicians, was elected Mayor of London in 2000 and re-elected in 2004.

He has been known for his strong defense of the Muslim minority against Islamophobic campaigns.

Mobilized

The Muslim Public Affairs Committee UK, a group set up to address Muslim under-representation in British politics, is campaigning for Livingstone.

It has launched the Vote Ken campaign to give Muslim voters “the knowledge as to who and who is not in their interests to vote for.”

It’s definitely in the interests of Muslims to vote for Livingstone. But is it in the interests of anybody else?

“MPACUK is supporting Ken Livingstone in the London Mayoral election and is strongly urging fellow Muslims to vote,” says the campaign press release.

“Our campaign involves activating mosques to publicise the election, working with other Muslim organisations and giving out leaflets of which we have already distributed over 20,000.”

The British Muslim Initiative (BMI), which seeks to fight racism and Islamophobia in the British society, also believes the Muslim choice is crystal clear.

It has come together with individuals and organisations from across the Muslim community to campaign for Livingstone.

The BMI has launched a blog, www.muslimsforken.blogspot.com, to raise awareness about the importance of the election and to urge Muslim voters to make an informed choice.

Is there any other religion that is mobilizing the vote for a particular candidate from its houses of worship?

Suppose the Jews of London were campaigning from their synagogues for a candidate?

What do you think the BBC would have to say about that?

Oh for the day when a campaign endorsement by Muslim groups is what it really should be: A political kiss of death.

Red Ken + Lamp Post + Rope

2.5/2.7% of the total population of these shores, are about to hoist the black flag of Islam upon us all - are they?

It's pretty sad the extent to which British society caves in to such a small minority.. The Muslims must laugh at the craveness of the Brits.

WHAT ISLAM ISN’T Dr. Peter Hammond

Islam is not a religion nor is it a cult. It is a complete system.

Islam has religious, legal, political, economic and military components. The religious component is a beard for all the other components.

Islamization occurs when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their so-called ‘religious rights.’

When politically correct and culturally diverse societies agree to ‘the reasonable’ Muslim demands for their ‘religious rights,’ they also get the other components under the table. Here’s how it works (percentages source CIA: The World Fact Book (2007)).

As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films, stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness:

United States — Muslim 1.0%
Australia — Muslim 1.5%
Canada — Muslim 1.9%
China — Muslim 1%-2%
Italy — Muslim 1.5%
Norway — Muslim 1.8%

At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs:

Denmark — Muslim 2%
Germany — Muslim 3.7%
United Kingdom — Muslim 2.7%
Spain — Muslim 4%
Thailand — Muslim 4.6%

From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population.

They will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply. ( United States ).

France — Muslim 8%
Philippines — Muslim 5%
Sweden — Muslim 5%
Switzerland — Muslim 4.3%
The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5%
Trinidad &Tobago — Muslim 5.8%

At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world but to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions ( Paris –car-burnings). Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats ( Amsterdam - Mohammed cartoons).

Guyana — Muslim 10%
India — Muslim 13.4%
Israel — Muslim 16%
Kenya — Muslim 10%
Russia — Muslim 10-15%

After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning:
Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%

At 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare:

Bosnia — Muslim 40%
Chad — Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon — Muslim 59.7%

From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels:

Albania — Muslim 70%
Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%
Qatar — Muslim 77.5%
Sudan — Muslim 70%

After 80% expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide:

Bangladesh — Muslim 83%
Egypt — Muslim 90%
Gaza — Muslim 98.7%
Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%
Iran — Muslim 98%
Iraq — Muslim 97%
Jordan — Muslim 92%
Morocco — Muslim 98.7%
Pakistan — Muslim 97%
Palestine — Muslim 99%
Syria — Muslim 90%
Tajikistan — Muslim 90%
Turkey — Muslim 99.8%
United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96%

100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of Peace — there’s supposed to be peace because everybody is a Muslim:

Afghanistan — Muslim 100%
Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%
Somalia — Muslim 100%
Yemen — Muslim 99.9%

Of course, that’s not the case. To satisfy their blood lust, Muslims then start killing each other for a variety of reasons.

‘Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; and the tribe against the world and all of us against the infidel. – Leon Uris, ‘The Haj’

At 5% they will push for the introduction of halal. They tried that in my neighborhood and went one step further. The removal of all Kosher products. Needless to say that halal isn't out and the Kosher goods have stayed. Including an aisle of all Israeli products.

The lesson here is never threaten an ex-patriot Israeli (the store manager).

Off topic:
Very sad - at the LGF they started bashing Brigitte Bardot - allusions to fascism, besmearing and ridiculing her aging look ...nobody standing up to support her courage.
LGF is a low class, primitive outlet, not a single cognitive, thoughtful sentence is posted on it. Yak.

This blog really does go over the top about the U.K.s pending subservience to an Islamic state.

2.5/2.7% of the total population of these shores, are about to hoist the black flag of Islam upon us all - are they?

Get a life!!!!!

Red Ken will be gone in ten days time - as will be many of his Nu Liebour cohorts in local government.

Why do you think it is, that in the whole of the Western world, Islamic immigrants are far more likely to become radicalized upon these shores, than anywhere else?

The government may well appease their every whim, but the rank-and-file of the British public ostracize them completely.

We don't dislike Muslims - We hate them.

I don't see that in France 8% Islamic, or even in the U.S. - for God sake, you may well be the first Western Country to vote a Muslim into the highest office.

It seems the British press, in reporting both openly and prolifically on this, and other "Sainted" leftist subjects, have given you Yanks a far too easier target to snipe at.

And all the while your next generation of students (in San Francisco) show their vast historical knowledge of Europe with placards such as this:

If red Ken is returned to power on May the first, Zenster can not only choose the rope - he can also direct me to a lamp Post of his choosing too...

Ain't happening!!!!!

VinceP1974: (From Hammond's article) The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world but to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

These two goals are nearly indistinguishable. Once shari'a law becomes global then Islam's overarching presence literally assures the gradual conversion of successive generations until total Islamization occurs.

Other than that, the national percentage group breakouts are quite illuminating. They make it easy to recognize the incremental growth of radicalism with each increase in Muslim population percentage within a given country.

Even more telling is how there are basically NO EXCEPTIONS to the rule. In EVERY country, an increased Muslim population means more Islamization. NOWHERE do you see a country with a significant minority—much less any sort of majority, marginal or overwhelming—where there is any peaceful coexistence or compatibility. Even more telling is how in Muslim majority nations plurality, freedom of religion or any other manifestations of liberal democracy are totaly absent. Across the board, increased Muslim presence is a consistent indicator of emerging or active jihad.

This knowledge now cements my belief that internment camps, reverse immigration and forced repatriations will probably be needed for the West to peacefully re-stabilize. The alternatives are far grimmer and likely will make Hitler look like Mr. Congeniality.

@reversepsychology

I wouldn't be so sure now after Boris' comments on amnesty for illegals.

A lot of ex-labour people find it hard to switch to another party. Most will eventually start voting for the BNP but at the moment I think a lot are just not voting at all. Some of that group that were thinking of voting for Boris would have given up again after those comments.

The Tories being so useless on this issue is making people a bit depressed and defeatist. When all the old parties are singing from the same PC hymnsheet it makes people lose hope. I'm hoping a big BNP advance on May 1st might change the mood.

Lionheart does not live in London (in fact he does not even live in England these days) and he has not been arrested. The rest of your description of life in London is about a quarter right but that is completely wrong.

Baron Bodissey said...

OneLondon -- I'll grant you that Lionheart does not live in London itself, but in the London area.

However, he has returned to England and been arrested. Just go look at his blog.

Or do you think that he is lying there (and to me in his emails), and that the Luton on Sunday newspaper is in error?
