ACTION ALERT: Incitement of Religious Hatred by Daily Mail’s Littlejohn

Mr. Little John

ACTION ALERT:

INCITEMENT OF RELIGIOUS HATRED AND INFLAMMATORY REMARKS BY RICHARD LITTLEJOHN IN THE DAILY MAIL

The image above was publish in an article today (18th February) in the Daily Mail and has caused outrage in the Muslim community. The article is replete with inaccuracies and seeks to stereotype Muslims as, extremist, terrorists and repeats the Islamophobic stereotypes of the likes of the EDL and other bigots.

It incites hatred and in an atmosphere of growing hostility to Muslims and the rise of Islamophobia, such articles serve to deliberately stoke hatred and instigate violence against minorities.

An extract of the article refers to the author’s account of what will take place with children on the day at a theme park:

“4.30pm All girls to report to the Kingdom of the Pharaohs for full FGM inspection. All boys to report to the Al-Aqsa recruiting tent outside the Land of the Vikings for onward transportation to Syria.”

What is the author known for?

A short web search will give you hundreds of examples, but here are 2:

In December 2010, Littlejohn “satirised” an incident in which a 20-year-old man with cerebral palsy was thrown out of his wheelchair by police at a protest. Littlejohn argued that the young man involved should not have attended the protest, and compared him to Andy Pipkin from Little Britain.

In December 2012 the Daily Mail published an apology following a piece written by Littlejohn which insinuated that ethnic minority staff had got their jobs through discrimination and had threatened to sue the EHRC.

We all, Muslims as well as non-Muslims, need to take stand against this vile article and demand an immediate retraction and apology from the author and the Daily Mail for making such degrading and disgusting comments.

Self Image Psychology expounds on some of the harmful messages promoted by the western media. The speaker points out how these common messages damage the Muslims’ self-image psychology. Among the many things discussed in this presentation are examples of proper self-respect and self-reverence from the lives of the Companions of the Prophet Muhammad (s). In addition, the speaker mentions common acts that entail lack of self esteem, such as the changing of Muslim names to non Muslim ones and the changing of the Islamic identity in general. The mere nature of this discussion reveals how Muslims today really view themselves.

The US charge d’affaires in Khartoum, Joseph D Stafford, resigned from his post after he converted to Islam, Sudanese local media sources said. 
Stafford told the foreign ministry that his resignation was made for “personal reasons” but Sudanese sources claimed that the envoy was forced to resign after he turned to Islam. 
Sources said that Stafford has recorded visits to the headquarters of Ansar al-Sunnah in Sudan and established a close relationship with a number of Sudanese clerics through these visits.

The U.S. State Department has not made any statement to confirm or deny the news on Joseph Stafford.
After his resign, Stafford published an article in the Sudan Tribune and said, “My wife and I have been very fortunate to meet so many wonderful people throughout Sudan who share a strong desire and willingness to improve their communities. We will always remember you and your compelling country, and I know you will continue your hard work for a better life, just as you say daily ‘Fi Kulu Harakah Baraka’ (Arabic for ‘in every move there is a blessing’).”
The U.S. has not appointed an ambassador to its embassy in Khartoum since 1998 and has kept its representation there at charge d’affaires despite Sudan’s demand that it be upgraded.

Industrial band Skinny Puppy demand $666,000 after music is used in Guantánamo torture

A Canadian electro-industrial band is asking for thousands of dollars in royalties after learning that the US military used their music to tortureprisoners at Guantánamo Bay. Skinny Puppy claim they filed a $666,000 (£368,000) bill with America’d defence department.

“We sent them an invoice for our musical services considering they had gone ahead and used our music without our knowledge and used it as an actual weapon against somebody,” keyboardist Cevin Key recentlytold CTV News. “I am not only against the fact they’re using our music to inflict damage on somebody else but they are doing it without anybody’s permission.”

Skinny Puppy first learned about the alleged use of their music from a former Guantánamo Bay guard, who was “affected or offended” by the detention camp’s practices. Although the Vancouver-born band originally planned to use their new album cover as an invoice to the Pentagon, they have now received “coaching” and apparently sent an actual physical document to government officials. They are even considering a lawsuit.

“We’re not making a point looking for financial gain,” Key underlined. But nor is the group entirely surprised that their songs were used as sonic punishment for Gitmo’s detainees: “We thought this would end up happening, in a weird way,” he admitted in an interview with the Phoenix New Times. “Because we make unsettling music, we can see it being used in a weird way. But it doesn’t sit right with us.”

Skinny Puppy aren’t the only group whose music has reportedly been used to torture terrorist suspects and “enemy combatants” at the United States‘ base in Cuba. According to earlier reports, interrogators have employed songs by Metallica, Rage Against The Machine, Queen, Eminem, and even David Gray. “It’s an issue that no one wants to deal with,” Gray said in 2008. “It’s shocking that there isn’t more of an outcry.
