Exposed: Douglas Murray and the Henry Jackson Society
A senior ex staff member at the Henry Jackson Society, who held the position of Greater Europe Co-Director and European Neighbourhood Section Director has written a stunning expose of the extreme right wing think tank exposing its worrying and sinister links to Islamophobia, the role of rampant Islamophobe Douglas Murray in the think tank's downfall and its links to senior members of the Conservative Government.
The entire article is worth a read, charting the honourable founding of the think tank and its degeneration into the extreme right wing cheerleader that it has now morphed into. For those of you familiar with the views of Douglas Murray, "Associate Director" of the extreme right wing tank, this should come as no surprise, but for those that need a reminder, here's a rather stomach churning taste:
‘Conditions for Muslims in Europe must be made harder across the board: Europe must look like a less attractive proposition. We in Europe owe – after all – no special dues to Islam. We owe them no religious holidays, special rights or privileges. From long before we were first attacked it should have been made plain that people who come into Europe are here under our rules and not theirs. There is not an inch of ground to give on this one. Where a mosque has become a centre of hate it should be closed and pulled down. If that means that some Muslims don’t have a mosque to go to, then they’ll just have to realise that they aren’t owed one. Grievances become ever-more pronounced the more they are flattered and the more they are paid attention to. So don’t flatter them.’
