    Links from the last few days


    by Rumbold on 11th July, 2009 at 9:16 am    

    Sarah Ismail highlights the problems of disability hate crimes going unreported.

    Burning Our Money looks at the risks and downsides inherent in PFI schemes.

    Two ‘asylum seekers’ who fled to America, from er, Britain, are jailed for racial hatred. (Hat-Tip: David O’Keefe)

    The leader of a gang of anti-semites who tortured and killed a Jew (allegedly for money) is finally jailed.

    Johann Hari reviews the book Does God hate Women?

    And finally, Mr. Eugenides on why politicans who claim to be willing to do their job for half the money, then don’t, sound even more pompous than the others.

      Unbelievable. Rumbold you didnt mention Marwa Sherbini -can I ask why? Marwa was a Muslim women stabbed to death in a German court in an Islamophobic hate crime. She was three months pregant at the time and her husband is in critical condition after being shot trying to save her

      http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/8136500.stm

      The way this is being ignored by the press is deeply deeply sinister.

      Blimey, Chudderi better watch out.

      Munir - Why do you think this appalling crime is being ignored by the media? The Times certainly carried it.

    4. Rumbold — on 11th July, 2009 at 10:56 am  

      Munir:

      It wasn’t suppose to be a round up of every link from everywhere to cover all news in the last week. Just a few interesing bit people might have missed. I welcome people adding their own links in the comments.

      “Munir – Why do you think this appalling crime is being ignored by the media? The Times certainly carried it.”

      http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2009/jul/10/germany-murder-marwa-sherbini

      BTW what the murderer shouted at Marwa is instructive

      ” No mention that the playground quarrel had culminated in the defendant shouting at the woman “Islamist”, “Muslim bitch” and “terrorist”.”

      munir (6)

      This happens, there was little mention of the “long live Bin Laden” outburst of the Ross Parker killers when they were sentenced. Think they call it “Community Cohesion” (When it’s in this direction anyway).

      What Sheppard was publishing wasn’t irony it was hard core racism and anti semitism. He ran the Blood and Honour Combat 18 site which has had the guestbook down since the time of his arrest.

      The guestbook was one of the ways that nazis talked to each other all over the world and was by far and away the worst of its type. It is still possible to view the site including a lot of photos of what are claimed to be anti fascist actvists but in fact many just turn out to be people on all sorts of demos.

      See if you can still get into http://www.skrewdriver.net. I had the honour of having my home details published up there some years ago. One of Sheppards other sites was drypool.net or.org.

    8. billericaydicky — on 11th July, 2009 at 12:38 pm  

      Shaeppard’s site is at http://www.heretical.com and gives his account of the trial as well as being a good expose of the minds of holocaust deniers and biological racists.

      “The way this is being ignored by the press is deeply deeply sinister.”

      You post a link to the BBC story about it to ‘prove’ that it’s being ignored by the press?

      Oh, and let’s not forget the CiF post on it. You know, the one with all the other links.

      And the (currently) 282 links on it at Google News.

      What would constitute ‘not ignoring it’ for you, munir?

      I see that Nick Griffin is barred from O’Farrell’s Irish Pub in Brussels.

      “I see that Nick Griffin is barred from O’Farrell’s Irish Pub in Brussels.”

      But the Drug Dealing, Punishment Beating, Kneecapping, Racist Murderers of English Children fron Shin Feign will be more than welcome.

      Bill Corr is being deleted. Please do not respond to him (even if you have the best intentions).

      1-Mongrel is unfair to the selfless volunteers of the Active Service United of the Irish Republican Army.

      A well-known and highly-regarded British M.P., whose name need not be mentioned here, is keen that people on the Left should recognise the sacrifice made by those who despatched ‘touts’ to unknown graves and did so much to create the opportunities to train surgeons in Northern Ireland (”The Occupied Six Counties”) in kneecap restoration.

      Scots Tiger,

      Save me the effort. Who is this MP?

    16. Scots Tiger — on 11th July, 2009 at 8:15 pm  

      The Irish form of the name of the M.P. is varied according to who is writing it but the English form is John McDonnell.

      For a brief moment he was seen as a possible P.M., on the grounds that he is not a liar and a cheat.

      Just a ninny and a fanatic, a poo-brained terrorist enabler.

    17. damon — on 11th July, 2009 at 8:46 pm  

      Oh come on 1mongrel.
      Really; it’s just an ”Irish Pub”.
      Probably not that much different to every other so called Irish Pub outside Ireland.
      From the O’Neills chain we have in England, to all the others from Bucharest to Antwerp.
      I’d imagine thst most people on this blog have been in one or two over the years … my personal favourite is the Oscar Wilde in Berlin.
      http://www.berlin-life.com/pictures/m.001.jpg

      Someone who works there saw Nick Grifin come in, and thought, ”I don’t want this guy and his pals hangiging out in my pub”.
      A perfectly fair judgment in my opinion.

      The barman (manager) probably doesn’t know the details and personalities of all the other European parties, but the BNP has played the notoriety card, and not being welcomed in a simple hostilary is probably one of the prices to be paid for going down that road.

      1mongrel: the rest of your points are exactly the kind of gibberish that I get from my former NF mate that I still see around the high street and in Sainsbury’s from time to time.
      We have a friendly chat for five minutes (we know each other from going to football matches in the late 70’s) but the guy is really away with the fairies, and still talks (as a middle aged man and father) about ethnic minority people like he did as a racist teenager.
      It’s pathetic, but I still kind of like the guy.
      It’s like he never grew up.

    18. 1mongrel — on 12th July, 2009 at 8:31 am  

      Damon (17).

      You really don’t get “The Saxon” do you? (Google it, Kipling) The point is the obvious inequity in the treatment of some MEPs compared to others. You also need to resist the temptation to put people in boxes. Some of your output is quite good and you raise interesting points. You will notice that your friends invariably ignore or simply don’t get them.

    19. Amrit — on 12th July, 2009 at 10:56 pm  

      I really, really want that book by Benson & Stangroom.
