Too White, Too Jewish

As a follow-up to my previous post, here’s another example of Multiculturalism in action in the UK.

A Labour Party member who expected to be able to stand for election in a local race was denied the opportunity because she was too white — and too Jewish. Here’s the story from the The Daily Mail:

Labour Party Embroiled in Race Row After Candidate Told She Was ‘Too White and Jewish’ to be Selected

The Labour Party has become embroiled in a race row after a prospective female councillor was allegedly told she was ‘too white and Jewish’ to be selected.

Elaina Cohen claims that Labour councillor Mahmood Hussain said he would not support her application for an inner-city ward because ‘my Muslim members don’t want you because you are Jewish’.

Mrs Cohen, 50, has made an official complaint about the alleged remarks made by Mr Hussain, a Muslim and former lord mayor of Birmingham.

She said: ‘I am shocked and upset that a member of the Labour Party in this day and age could even think something like that, let alone say it.

People should not be allowed to make racist comments like that. If someone in the party feels I cannot represent them because of my colour or religion, that’s ridiculous.

‘I felt particularly aggrieved because I have worked across all sections of the community, particularly with the Muslim section, and have been on official visits to Pakistan.’ [emphasis added]

“People should not be allowed to make racist comments like that.”

I’ve got some news for you, Mrs. Cohen: they aren’t — if they’re white. That’s why you can’t say things like that.

But since you’re white, people of color can discriminate against you to their hearts’ content. Deal with it.

And if you expect a friendly quid pro quo from the “Muslim section” of your community, think again. That’s not the way Islam works: accommodation ratchets in one direction only, towards that which benefits the Ummah.

The article continues:
- - - - - - - - -
Mrs Cohen had applied to stand as a Labour councillor for the Birmingham ward of East Handsworth and Lozells, which has a high Asian and Afro-Caribbean population.

As one of Labour’s safest seats on Tory-led Birmingham city council, the final candidate would be almost certain of victory at the June 4 by-election.

But when Mrs Cohen telephoned 57-year-old Mr Hussain for his support, she was astonished to be told that she was too ‘white and Jewish’ to be considered.

[…]

Mrs Cohen has now sent an official complaint to Labour Party general secretary Ray Collins and Birmingham city council accusing Mr Hussain of improper conduct.

Mr Hussain said yesterday: ‘I would not make those sort of comments. The allegations are not true.’

All indications are that this well-meaning woman is a whole-hearted supporter of Multiculturalism. Which means that she should have known the rules: political offices, like other spoils, are dealt out on a racial and religious basis. Whites and Jews are not part of the equation in her little corner of Multi-Land, so she had no business expecting things to be any different.

This incident is further evidence that the Socialist establishment had no idea what kind of monster it was creating a generation or two back when it invented the modern Multicultural state.

Seems to be this lady is blind and ignorant of what she has fostered and supported over the years by drinking that toxic brew of multiculturalism and diversity. The foxes are now in the hen house and why on earth would she expect ANY islamic support for a Jewish, white female. Talk about going upstream against the flood! She can complain away and she may get this islamofacist at heart creepo
a slap on the wrist, at the very best.

She reminds me of the American Jews who so blindly and ignorantly voted for the mullah obamaham and helped put the squatter into office. Similar in respect that she thinks that someone who is muslim or part muslim would support or work with anyone who is Jewish, no matter of color or gender. She being white and Jewish stacks the cards against her
in a worse way. Whatever dialogue or agreeable behavior muslims may show towards us infidels, kuffars of any stripe, they are hollow lies and deception. Nothing more than smoke and mirrors to
advance the cause of islam,
islamofacism and the establishment of the caliphate around the world.

She's a triple loser in Muslim eyes, white, Jewish and female. Mr. Hussain mentioned just two of her drawbacks. He probably expected her to know her inferior female status without being told.

The naivete of Leftists thinking Muslims are going to lift a finger to advance them if there's nothing in it for Muslims is breathtaking. Leftists never bother actually learning about the cultures they automatically promote over their own.

How heartwarming to see one such sanctimonious ignoramus hoist on her own petard. Muslim trumps Jew on the left, you dolt. Bow to the new masters you worked feverishly hard to bring in.

Perhaps she could consider joining the BNP.

XXX ‘People should not be allowed to make racist comments like that. If someone in the party feels I cannot represent them because of my colour or religion, that’s ridiculous.XXX

Regardless of the fact that the "Government have let Britain get to such a state that whole areas of it are physicaly, and as this case shows POLITICALLY dictated to by muslims, at least HE is being realistic.

It seems that Elaina Cohen has been up close and personal to labour muslim politicians for quite some time:

"Mrs Cohen switched from Tory to Labour after getting together with Mr Mahmood."I would have converted to Islam if we'd got married," she added."

Check the comments at the end of the posted link. An anonymous commenter knows this person and has nothing very positive to say about her

Well, they I say, it couldn't have happened to a better person. I hope she learns a lesson from this.

Whoops, he's done it again!Two wives down, now Khalid ditches ElainaWomanising MP Khalid Mahmood, Labour's answer to Steve 'shagger' Norris, is at it again. Mahmood, 44, dumped two

Muslim wives, both of whom had a child by him. Now the member for Birmingham Perry Barr has split up with married Jewish lover Elaina Cohen, left, an ex-Tory activist, but is coping well. 'I've met women friends for dinner but you couldn't say they were dates,' says coy Khalid.

"This incident is further evidence that the Socialist establishment had no idea what kind of monster it was creating a generation or two back when it invented the modern Multicultural state."

We here have a say: "One swallow does not make Spring time".

Of course there are many naive people and even more low intelligent people in the left. But a carefull analysis would reveal this, and there are some who cherish for it.

Yeah, blame the Leftists. They *knew* what they would create, and even if they did not, they should know it as much as an old man driving in the opossite direction in a highway should know he would cause an accident.
Sorry for my bad english.

And the women is a little bit stupid.
Why would she represent a majority muslim area? Don't the muslims have the right to elect people of their own comunity if one recognises the right of them to be there, as the women seems to do?

She's worst than the "racist" muslim. Who's not that racist to me.

Yesterday I found something called the Muslim Handbook for infiltrating political parties on danish blog Snaphanen, not as an article but in the comments section. Seemingly it had been previosly posted at Uriasposten as well. As I understand it it was not real but more made as a satirical works. However, it was very well written and spine-chilling so I hope someone will translate it to english so that it could be spread further.

Jews of all people should know, that the golems we create will always turn against their masters.

Hmmm. a Re-run of "The protocols of the elders of Zion" by any chance?

Why am I getting Déja vú with some of the posts around here?

Someone might write a PhD on Mrs Cohen, it seems to be a case study - explaining a lot.
