Are these vigilantes antics being labelled as *racist* or *hate crimes in the national media*? Genuine question. x

From what I've read I believe the police are treating them as hate crimes, Muffy.

To get this thread over 1,000 posts, you need a Muslim extremist to be doing his family history and say that the actions of these Muslims are justified.

I expect all these very long threads are full of anger and disputes - it is the missing ingredient here, Sue. :-( :-(

Well, John, they'd only be 'justified' if the extremist either couldn't read or hadn't read/didn't know the Qu'ran.
Which would mean he wasn't a Moslem, just the usual self-opinionated, ignorant moron. Many of which exist in all societies, religious or not.

These 'vigilantes' - they don't deserve that name, just makes them feel they're 'big'..
These thick morons may be using the name of Islam to apply their thuggery, but basically they're just racist, sexist, idiots, who haven't got the sense to see how their actions not only affect their neighbourhood, but the other innocent victims, those of Islam.

If those who have been harranged by this lot came back with their mates - guess who would run the fastest?

These 'vigilantes', from the couple of articles I've read, appear to have occasioned ABH on men they accuse of being homosexual.
There is no proof that these individuals were such, and obviously these extremely 'brave' group members did not have the courage to accuse these people openly.
Of course, it could be that they are not particularly good Muslims anyway - surely they should know that to even voice an unproven accusation of illicit sex could if unproven, under Hadd, result in their receiving eighty lashes?
Also, by declaring they are 'vigilantes', then they also do not believe that their religious leaders and judiciary are 'up to the job' - hmm, be a bit more than lashes for that, were this an Islamic country, methinks.

More to follow, I think ....

I said there'd be more ...

Many Muslims today are not happy!

They're not happy in Gaza .
They're not happy in Egypt .
They're not happy in Libya .
They're not happy in Morocco .
They're not happy in Iran .
They're not happy in Iraq .
They're not happy in Yemen .
They're not happy in Afghanistan .
They're not happy in Pakistan .
They're not happy in Syria .
They're not happy in Lebanon .

So, where are they happy?

They're very happy in Australia ...
They're happy in New Zealand .
They're happy in the UK .
They're happy in Canada .
They're happy in the US .
They're happy in France .
They're happy in Spain.
They're happy in Germany .
They're happy in Italy .
They're happy in Sweden .
They're happy in Denmark.
They're happy in Norway.

So, they're happy in every country that is not Muslim !!!
And who do they blame?
Not Islam. Not their leadership. Not themselves.

NO!!! THEY BLAME THE WESTERN COUNTRIES THEY ARE HAPPY IN!
AND THEY WANT TO CHANGE THESE COUNTRIES TO BE LIKE THE COUNTRY THEY, OR THEIR KIN, CAME (better, still.....ESCAPED) FROM.....WHERE THEY WERE UNHAPPY IN THE FIRST PLACE?
(Well, Bugg*r Me, have I missed something here?)

how sad that many people are so racist in that they think anyone from a mid east country is automatically Muslim
If you are from Britain does that make you Christian?

MrDaff

MrDaff Report 27 Jan 2013 23:13

Errol, and where was that from?
The OP is about the reported Muslim Vigilantes.
I don't think I've read anything about the Jews, Orthodox, Zionists, Zorastrians, Druze, Yazidi etc etc ..... have I missed something, or have you ??

And no, if you are 'from Britain' you are not necessarily Christian .... you could be a Muslim, or any of the above. What you are probably not likely to be is a Vigilante.

Now could they be unhapppy in those countries because they have bases for the extremists? Sorry that should read orthodox! or just nutters.

Nothing like a visit to a family gathering to find a couple of indiscretions.or perhaps locating a secret school for girls or maybe a woman doctor?

and the punishment is: lose a hand, one or two eyes, tongue or life.

No wonder they are unhappy.

NB the above is simplified cos it's late.

I didn't mean on here I meant generally.
I had a conversation with someone yesterday who referred to all people from the Middle East as Muslim. I tried to point out that many different faiths were born in that region but they wouldn't have it.

Bloody hell, just read some links on that site! It deserves a thread proving that there are dedicated idiots!

Some of their views beggar belief. TBH I'd rather deal with some idiots Muslims in the UK than that load of evil Baptists in the States.

Not just idiots, ignorant!

One the threads questioned that someone could obtain a Doctorate from 'Cambridge' taken from an author's book blurb. Their arguement was that there is no University in Cambridge, MA, the closest geographically being Harvard.

Hadn't they heard of the university town of Cambridge, England? Doh!
