The Big Story That Isn’t
by Paul Weston

Mohammad SarwarOne of the biggest stories in recent times is due shortly to hit the British media. This follows the unprecedented decision of Mohammad Sarwar, Labour MP for Glasgow Govan since 1997, to stand down before the next elections, following threats upon both his and his children’s lives.

The press are in frenzy because there are so many aspects to this story deemed irresistible to the media-driven modern Britain in which we are so fortunate to live today. Mr. Sarwar has the dubious honour of being both Britain’s first Muslim MP, and Britain’s first MP to be driven from office upon threat of death.

When he was elected, to a fanfare of media coverage, Mr. Sarwar managed yet another first; he refused to swear allegiance to the Queen, preferring instead the ancient British tradition of swearing his oath upon the Koran — the copy of which, incidentally, was placed inside an envelope lest it “be touched by one not of the faith.” This, unsurprisingly, drew the ire of the racist Right and Mr. Sarwar was subsequently threatened by an assortment of organisations, including Combat 18 and the National Front.

This of course is manna from heaven for the British media. The BBC have led the way, camping outside Mr. Sarwar’s constituency home, interviewing local Pakistanis who feel “threatened and uncomfortable” and conducting an undercover infiltration of the BNP in order to track down the perpetrators behind the violent threats that have forced a standing British MP to go into hiding for the first time in our modern history.

If you possess a powerful telescope, and train it carefully upon Glasgow, you may well be able to view the events unfolding. Be sure though, to point it at Glasgow, Planet Fantasy, Milky Way 1. If you do not, you will see very little, because this story exists only in the Britain of a parallel universe. Back here on planet reality it is a non-story, indeed almost a non-event. A by-line here, a by-line there, but virtually unreported on television news stations.

The reason for this media blackout is very simple. It is not the National Front, Combat 18 or the BNP who have issued the recent death threats, it is local Muslims themselves, incensed by what they see as his treacherous behaviour in relation to the murder of Kriss Donald, a white Glaswegian, in 2004.

Those of you familiar with the case, or those of a sensitive disposition, need not read the next paragraph. I note the details only because they have a relevance which I will come to later.

Kriss Donald, a slightly built, 15-year-old schoolboy was abducted from the streets of Pollockshields, Glasgow, on March 14, 2004. His kidnappers were five British Muslims of Pakistani descent, intent on exacting retribution on a white male — any white male would do — following a fight in a night club the previous weekend. Kriss was driven around for several hours whilst he was held down and tortured in the back of the car. He was eventually taken to an area of waste ground where he was finished off. Before he died, it is alleged that he was castrated, burned with cigarettes; his eyes were gouged out and he was stabbed repeatedly. Once on the waste ground he was doused with gasoline and set alight whilst still alive. He crawled a few metres and then, mercifully, died. A walker who discovered his body the following morning was unaware that it was even human, remarking, that at first, he thought it was the carcass of an animal.

Two men were subsequently arrested, but the other three, aware the police knew their identities, fled to Pakistan. The Foreign Office at that time was involved in delicate negotiations with Pakistan over the extradition rights concerning full-blown terrorists, so an unimportant little murder such as Kriss Donald’s was simply a fly in the ointment they did not need. As a result, they did their best to frustrate attempts by the British police to retrieve their suspects.

Enter Mr. Mohammad Sarwar, a man with a clearer sense of right and wrong, and a political position with which to do something about it. Mr. Sarwar was instrumental in forcing the British government to press ahead with the extradition of the three men, and thus, in the eyes of some British Muslims, committed a crime of such magnitude that only his death could adequately compensate for his treachery.

I apologise for detailing the gory details of Kriss Donald’s torture and murder, but its relevance is shown in the following quotes from Mr. Sarwar, printed in the Daily Telegraph:

“Life is not the same since I brought them back… I received threats to my life, to murder my sons, to murder my grandchildren…I was told they wanted to punish my family and make a horrible example of my son… they would do to him what they did to Kriss Donald.”

There were other firsts in the story that should have interested the media. Daamish Zahid, one of the five killers, was the first person in Scotland to be convicted of racially motivated murder, whilst the sheer brutality of the murder itself was unprecedented in Britain. (An issue all too predictably rectified a year later by six black British men who gang raped, tortured and murdered Mary Ann Leneghan.)

But I digress.

To recap, Britain’s first Muslim MP is also Britain’s first ever politician to stand down in the face of death threats; threats uttered by followers of the Religion of Peace who sympathise with the Islamic savages involved in the most horrific racial murder in Britain’s recent history, one of whom, to boot, was also the first “Scotsman” to be convicted of racially aggravated murder.

Now, correct me if I’m wrong, but surely there’s a story in there somewhere? I know it is now a tired old cliché, but imagine if Mr. Paul Boateng, Britain’s first black MP, had been driven from office by a bunch of white, right wing Christian fundamentalists, enraged that he had succeeded in bringing the white killers of the black Stephen Lawrence to justice?

A foolish hypothesis, I admit. One could discard the telescope, whilst an investment in blinkers and earmuffs would be necessary to avoid the media hysteria. We are used to the double standards utilised by the media with regard to racial murder, but this time it is different. This is not any old murder, not any old death threats, and Mr. Sarwar is not any old person.

When Britain, a First World country, loses a democratically-elected politician because he fears for his life, we are entering a wholly new era. Britain is now an Iraq, a Zimbabwe.

We are becoming, in political terms, a genuine Third World country, and our BBC-led media, showing a total disregard for impartiality, has veered from mere bias to dangerous censorship, with all the disturbing implications this portends for our democratic future.

Many political commentators believe that Britain is dead, Lawrence Auster in particular, but Mr. Auster also thinks it can be resurrected. If this is to happen it must happen soon.

Our national heart has ceased to beat. Our national soul is hovering indecisively above the operating table. The crash team have been called, but the politically inclined hospital switchboard have told them there is no problem, that everything is under control.

The life support boys have heard otherwise, they are hurrying to get there, but other hospital staff members have switched the signage to the operating theatre and killed the lights. It is a big hospital, they only have minutes to get there, they are lost, confused, misinformed, and the clock is relentlessly ticking, and ticking, and ticking…

So there is a security gap. The government will not enforce the laws nor crack down on racist-religious hatred Muslims who commit or agitate to commit horrific crimes against Whites and/or non-Muslims, and those courageous Muslims who attempt to enforce the rule of law.

My oh my, how stable is THAT situation? How willing will the still-majority White and Non-Muslim population be to undergo that sort of crime against members of their own families?

If the UK establishment/elites WANTED to push Britain's people into something like the BNP they could not do better.

Telling that Scotland and Wales are now embracing home rule. I wonder how soon they will have their own authorities cracking down on Muslim racial-religious hate crimes against their majority native populations? The way of legitimacy for government is delivering that most basic of services, public safety. If the central government does not deliver the separatist home rule governments can. England of course is left open to the Return of the Lord Protector.

Left open of course is who will rule Britain? The British people or the Pakistani people? The BBC can fiddle and concern itself with Islamaphobia, but the main struggle can't be concealed.

It is very, very dangerous for an elite to side with a foreign power over the native populace. The recent history of struggles against colonialist powers of which Pakistan can now be classed as one is not very happy.

Another name, murdered and disposed of in an equally awful manner as Kriss Donald is 14 yr old Charlene Downes, murdered then disposed of through the mincing machine of a kebab takeaway shop.

When it comes to media bias regarding what stories it will and wont run ... well, I'm back at work on Reconquista. I believe Lawrence Auster ran something analogous re America recently.

Amazing. Do the governments in the West feel the need to even pretend they give a rip about their people anymore?

Today's postings here are incredibly depressing. One part of me wants to fight the leaders ruining our societies, but another part says "why bother? I'm just a white conservative, so I don't matter".

And a third part wonders if living in the Islamic world could be any worse. At least there are no pretenses of freedom there. And if you keep your head down and your mouth shut, you might survive.

I'm not interested in mere survival.

I'm interested in prevailing.

The fights going on in western nations will end up in the streets.

"The fights going on in western nations will end up in the streets"
I wish. Instead we'll be ground down slowly until islamic rule is a reality, and it will be too late to do anything about it.

It'd be a first step to stop referring to these people as "Britons" when they themselves say they aren't, and back their words with unarguable deeds.

It must wear thin but I'll add again that we meet every week at the atrium at the Vancouver Public Library from 7-9:00 p.m. outside Blenz coffee bar to sit and be seen as in defiance of the ruling ethos, as it were, of the Gnostic elites and the red fascist dhimmis who control the pubic discourse. (And no, I usually do pause for breath in the middle of my sentences in person.)

We meet in public every Thursday evening, as do others across the world, in support partly of the Blue Revolution in France, but primarily just to be seen in public as adamantly against the dhimmitude of our times. Just sitting with our friends is enough at this time to give heart to others who at this time might feel alone and afraid of public pressure to say nothing, to do nothing, to be afraid of scorn. We sit openly, ands we ask that others join us here in Vancouver or that you do the same at a library of your choice, be seen, just sit and talk.

We wear blue scarves, being fashionable types, I guess, and in solidarity with our French friends who do the same. Some of us wear Israeli flags patches on our baseball caps-- just to piss off the fascists who see us sitting so openly. You can join us for coffee or you can sit with your own group and just be seen and known as resisting this madness.

We've met in the open every week for over a year and a half. Yes, I know, I've been beheaded a few times, but hey, what did I have to lose from it? I'd rather lose my head than lose my freedom anyway.

See you there or perhaps you'll leave us a note saying you want to stand up and sit.

Folks, that was an entirely creepy and sickening story. My own come from Scotland, and I cannot recognize the place when I go there now. I can't recognize America when I return there either. It's not right what's happening. The only way to stop this from worsening is to do something positive, and one way is to sit. Let us know.

I've recently read that kids in the UK are knifing each other at the rate of @ 350 / day. I was curious; is this the result of gang wars, or immigrant / native tension ? Thanks, George
