A British Muslim politician is on the receiving end of things after she told her social media followers that she would never support Labour leader Ed Miliband because he is “a Jew.”
A few years ago, something like this quite simply could not have happened. That was back when anti-Semites understood that society didn’t want to have anything to do with them. So what did they do? They hid, pretending they were open-minded and tolerant.
In the last couple of years, however, everything has changed — in Europe, at least. Now, European anti-Semites — most of them Muslim immigrants or their children — believe it’s perfectly fine for them to spew their hatred.
Case in point, Tory (that’s a conservative!) council candidate Gulzabeen Afsal. She’s a supporter of conservative Prime Minister David Cameron, but was recently challenged by one of her Facebook followers as to why she didn’t support the Labour Party led by Social Democrat Miliband. Afsal’s response? No way she could ever support that Jew!
The exchange began when Afsal wrote on her Facebook page: “Just can’t take Mr Ed Milliband seriously!! DC (David Cameron) has what it takes to be the future PM.”
When a respondent suggested that Afsal should have some respect “for the future PM”, she responded: “Nah bro! never ever will I drop that low and support the al yahud [Arabic for Jew] lol.”
The worst part? Instead of forcing her to withdraw, the supposedly conservative Tory Party has responded by stating that this blatant anti-Semite has “apologized” and “removed” her offensive comment, which should suffice for everyone.
As Robert Spencer writes at JihadWatch, this proves that “the Conservative Party, the party of David Cameron and Theresa May, … are just as desperate to appease Islamic supremacists and pander for Muslim votes as” Labour is. In fact, since Labour blasted Afsal, it’s perfectly fair to say that the Tories are now officially worse.
There’s only one party in Britain that doesn’t play this game: Nigel Farage‘s UKIP. Let’s hope his party will win the coming elections in Britain so something can be done about immigrants like Mrs. Afsal.
