Burchill Should Apologise to Muslims Too
Julie Burchill has had her column withdrawn from The Observer due to its offensive nature towards transsexuals. Names such as “screaming mimis” and “bed-wetters” were used to describe them, and this warranted Liberal Democrat MP Lynne Featherstone to sack Burchill as well as demand an apology from The Observer.
MPACUK also think it is about time to get her to apologise to other people she has offended such as the Muslims, and those who have been offended by her vile Zionist views. She said regarding our sister in Islam Lauren Booth:
“What sort of woman freely converts to a religion which supports the oppression, torment and murder of thousands of Christians, homosexuals and spirited women, worldwide, every year? The sort of woman who writes love letters to a serial killer, I reckon. Still, might as well look on the bright side. Go on, Lauren, treat yourself to a full-face and – most essentially – mouth-covering burka! If your Iranian paymasters and puppet-masters won't spring for it, I'd be more than happy to.”
How could we allow such vile things to be said about our sister? To make matters worse, in the same article she talks about how Israel is a model country and the eighth happiest nation in the world (a pretty remarkable feat considering they’re supposed to be receiving rockets from Gaza annually). Furthermore, she mocks Islam's idea of modesty by misrepresenting it with her usual nonsense, and essentially saying the modest are losers.
How long do we have to wait before we are the only ones demonised? It seems it is acceptable and considered “free speech” when a Muslim is mocked or criticised, slandered and insulted, but when it is another group such as transsexuals, suddenly it is unacceptable.
We find Islamophobia unacceptable and want to do something about it. Will you join us in our pursuit or sit back and watch the world fly by whilst you obsess over the skills of Lionel Messi, or get your spiritual kicks on milad un-Nabi and attempt to solve the age old debate as to whether it is halal/haram?
