Threatening Community Harmony

Update: The story has made it to the British MSM (hat tip Gaia).


“The Secretary of State is satisfied that your statements about Muslims and their beliefs… would threaten community harmony and therefore public security in the UK.”

Actually, this is a fairly honest assessment of would happen should Fitna be shown at the House of Lords.

It’s just a bit surprising to read an admission in black and white that Her Majesty’s government regards a peaceful citizen of the EU — who is also a member of the Dutch parliament — as more of a threat to British “community harmony” than the millions of seething and violent Muslims that they absentmindedly invited to live in their midst.

But here it is — a copy of the letter sent by the Home Office to Geert Wilders, as supplied to Gates of Vienna by two separate sources:

Wilders UK letter



Here’s the text of the body of the letter:
- - - - - - - - -
The purpose of this letter is to inform you that the Secretary of State is of the view that your presence in the UK would pose a genuine, present and sufficiently serious threat to one of the fundamental interests of society. The Secretary of State is satisfied that your statements about Muslims and their beliefs, as expressed in your film Fitna and elsewhere, would threaten community harmony and therefore public security in the UK.

You are advised that should you travel to the UK and seek admission an Immigration Officer will take into account the Secretary of State’s view. If, in accordance with regulation 21 of the Immigration (European Economic Area) Regulations 2006, the Immigration Officer is satisfied that your exclusion is justified on grounds of public policy and/or public security, you will be refused admission to the UK under regulation 19. You would have a right of appeal against any refusal of admission, exercisable from outside the UK.

Wilders is denied his right to migrate on the basis of "The Immigration (European Economic Area) Regulations 2006 regulation 21" This regulation clearly states under item 5 that :

" (5) Where a relevant decision is taken on grounds of public policy or public security it shall, in addition to complying with the preceding paragraphs of this regulation, be taken in accordance with the following principles—

(a) the decision must comply with the principle of proportionality;

(b) the decision must be based exclusively on the personal conduct of the person concerned;

(c) the personal conduct of the person concerned must represent a genuine, present and sufficiently serious threat affecting one of the fundamental interests of society;


(d) matters isolated from the particulars of the case or which relate to considerations of general prevention do not justify the decision;

(e) a person's previous criminal convictions do not in themselves justify the decision."

In other words they use legislations devised to prevent terrorism AGAINST Wilders. They are indirectly accusing him of being a terrorist...

As if it wasn´t enough to prosecute the man for hate-speech after he made a film warning his fellow citizents AGAINST the hatespeech contained in the quran.
And to put the sugar on top Wilders is denied his right to migrate after warning AGAINST uncontrolled migration....

I am speechless... how deep does the rabbithole go?!?

Irving Jones is an ignoranus. Where can we email and snail mail that ignorant terd?

The Venerable 1st Earl of Cromer said...

Gregory:
You can write to Irving Jones at the UK Border Agency:

Border Control CSU,
2nd Floor, Green Park House, Wellesley Road,
Croydon,
CRO 2AJ

However, you may be better off writing to David Miliband c/o the Foreign Office, or Gordon Brown c/o 10 Downing Street.

The Venerable 1st Earl of Cromer said...

Sorry, I should clarify:
althought the address I gave is different to the one on the letter, it is specifically for complaints about the conduct of agency staff related to border control matters. Might get more attention than just writing to him direct.

You can write to Foreign Secretary David Miliband here (constituency address, guaranteed to be read):

Ede House
143 Westoe Road
South Shields
NE33 3PD

and Gordon Brown PM:

10 Downing Street,
London,
SW1A 2AA

Hopefully if enough people do it will show someone out there cares.

Great Britain asked for US help in WWI and WWII. During WWII the UK assured the US that the war aims included the 4 freedoms.
"

1. Freedom of speech and expression
2. Freedom of religion
3. Freedom from want
4. Freedom from fear
"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Four_Freedoms_speech

The UK assured us they had those freedoms and that they were fundamental freedoms.

Looks like at least 3 of those are being violated now. Please live up to your commitments.

Old Atlantic Lighthouse,

That is no longer the commitment that the US expects from its allies.

Here is the modern, up-to-date, version:

“There is no place in modern Europe for ethnically pure states. That’s a 19th century idea and we are trying to transition into the 21st century, and we are going to do it with multiethnic states.” - Gen. Wesley Clark.

Crazy I know but that is what is being asked and that is what is being delivered.

It is retarded that Wilders is being portrayed as a threat to British society. What is a threat, is how Muslims react to the truth being told about them. It is the Muslims that will become violent in their attempt to silence anyone who opposes them. Muslims threaten the freedom of speech, but it seems this freedom is now expendible in order to appease those who would rather slice off your head than listen to you tell the truth about them - pictures, quotes, and all.

America is the most ideologically motivated power since the Soviet Union. Just like in occupied Poland, or 1930s Ukraine, they believe our countries have been rendered unfit to exist by the evolving historical paradigm that only they are privy to understand.

"The philosophy of history emanating from Washington is not just an abstract theory, it is a material force that uses guns, tanks, planes, and all the machines of war and oppression. All the crushing might of an armed state is hurled against any man who refuses to accept the New Faith. At the same time, he is attacked from within, saying his opposition is caused by his "closedness," just as psychoanalysts accuse their foes of wanting to preserve their complexes."

From "The Captive Mind" by Czeslaw Milosz. A book about the Soviet occupation of Poland.

The quote has a few contextual changes to it.

Ah, yes. The Orwellian phrase "threaten community harmony." It reminds me of what Lionheart said on video when he was last in America: he was being hauled in by the UK police for threatening "social cohesion."

Czechmade said...

Abu,

it is a double joke, since the prescribed harmony or cohesion is not there!!!

Translation:

"threaten missing community harmony"
"threatening missing social cohesion"

Why not "refusing to dress our naked ceasar using our brain programming"?
