Premiere North American Islamophobes are appearing alongside EDL leader Tommy Robinson at SION (Stop the Islamization of Nations) anti-Muslim demonstration that is being hailed as the “worldwide counter-Jihad alliance.” (h/t: CriticalDragon)

Worldwide Counter-Jihad Alliance to Launch with Stockholm Demonstration on August 4

By Stop Islamization of Nations, Published: Tuesday, Jun. 12, 2012 – 2:46 am

NEW YORK, June 12, 2012 — /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The first worldwide counter-jihad initiative will begin August 4 with the First Annual Global Counter Jihad rally in Stockholm, Sweden. Representatives from Stop Islamization of Nations (SION), Stop Islamization of America (SIOA), Stop Islamisation of Europe (SIOE), the English Defence League (EDL), and allied groups will speak.

The Global Counter Jihad rally will feature the president of SION and executive director of SIOA, Pamela Geller, as well as SION Vice President and SIOA associate director Robert Spencer. Also speaking will be the EDL’s Tommy Robinson, SIOE’s Anders Gravers, and other worldwide leaders from official Stop Islamization and Defence League groups.

“The conference,” said Geller in a statement, “heralds the launch of a worldwide counter jihad alliance. Freedom fighters from Europe and America, as well as India, Israel, and other areas threatened by jihad, will at last be working together and forming a common defense of freedom and human rights.”

    No they don’t. For one thing Turkey is a Muslim country and its still largely secular, not mention the fact that non Muslims aren’t exactly being persecuted in mass in Egypt.

    Also, even when you are able to point out genuine examples of real Muslim extremists, so what? There are Christian and Jewish extremists as well, including people who practice other religions.

    Check out this Loon Watch affiliated website.
    http://whatiftheyweremuslim.com/

    In addition, even the “Islamic Extremism” that does exist isn’t caused by some verse in the Qur’an or Hadith. In fact if you do you’re research you’ll notice that much of he extremism in Muslim majority societies, and even in the non Muslim west, has a lot to do with the actions of westerners, including western governments like the United States.

    More examples of the type of people the EDL leadership and Robert Spencer himself are allied with:

    A couple of weeks ago, the EDL leadership promoted the following material on the EDL’s main Facebook page, as quoted here: http://www.facebook.com/groups/260816450675220/permalink/296415547115310/ (you may need to log into Facebook see the full quotes).

    The EDL do not cite any sources for this dubious “information”. However, after googling the contents, it turns out that they’re copied from this webpage: http://wikiislam.net/wiki/Muslim_Statistics_(Pornography). The website is not actually affiliated to Wikipedia but is an anti-Islamic propaganda website, the property of “Faith Freedom International”: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faith_Freedom_International.

    I very much doubt the owner is really an “Iranian ex-Muslim”, not least because the author (who publicly uses the name “Ali Sina”: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ali_Sina_(activist)) is openly racist towards brown people (including describing them as “subhuman”) and also because his website hosts numerous articles by anti-Muslim propagandists like Robert Spencer, Geert Wilders, Daniel Pipes and Fjordman.

    The author is also a board member of SION alongside Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller. Wilders and Geller have cross-published his articles on their own websites too.

    There’s a good debate about “Ali Sina” on the following SPLC comments thread: http://www.splcenter.org/blog/2012/03/08/explosive-growth-of-patriot-movement-revealed-in-new-splc-report/. Here are some of Ali Sina’s quotes that one of the commenters flagged up, which tell you everything you need to know about his attitudes and those of his allies:

    “I don’t see Muslims as innocent people. They are all guilty as sin. It is not necessary to be part of al Qaida to be guilty. If you are a Muslim you agree with Muhammad and that is enough evidence against you.”

    “Muslims, under the influence of Islam lose their humanity. They become beasts. Once a person’s mind is overtaken by Islam, every trace of humanity disappears from him. Islam reduces good humans into beasts.”

    “We will do everything to save you, to make you see your folly, and to make you understand that you are victims of a gigantic lie, so you leave this lie, stop hating mankind and plotting for its destruction and it [sic] domination. But if all efforts fail and if you become a threat to our lives and the lives of our children, we must amputate you. This will happen, not because I say so, but I say so because this is human response. We humans are dictated by our survival instinct. If you threaten me and my survival depends on killing you, I must kill you.”

    “Muhammad was not a prophet of God. He was an instrument of Satan to divide mankind so we destroy each other. It is a demonic plot to end humanity.”

    Having read SION’s full statement via the “Sacramento Bee” article, it’s highly unlike that “Tommy Robinson” (aka Stephen Yaxley-Lennon) personally wrote the part of the statement attributed to him. Someone else has clearly written most of that on his behalf. Anyone familiar with Yaxley-Lennon’s actual public statements and communicating skills will of course realise this.

    The following is a very good example of how Yaxley-Lennon actually speaks, and it’s also very revealing about his real mentality. From Yaxley-Lennon’s speech to EDL members during the EDL demonstration in Peterborough on Saturday 11 December 2010:

    From Part 1:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=saoW7dGmPSA&skipcontrinter=1

    “Islam….Islam rules this country with fear. Islam rules this country with fear. Look around you: do you see any scared fucking faces? No I fucking don’t! I see faces ready and fucking waiting, ready and waiting for whatever Islam wants to throw at us! We are the British public, we are the British people. For 15 years we have allowed 10% to dictate to 90%. No fucking more! We are the people of this nation. […]

    This is….this is every single member of the British public’s duty to stand up and protect the future for our children. For our nation. And it is only in this country that we don’t have politicians talking for us. […] We will lead England in the world’s fight against militant fucking Islam! Militant Islam and Islam’s days in this nation are numbered, because the people of this nation have woke up.”

    Part 2:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sDP6LhSgiTA&feature=relmfu

    “As I said, Islam rules with fear, Islam is fucked because the British public….the British public….the British people of this country are no longer fearful! We are leading the fight in the world….the whole world is looking to us. Every organisation in Europe, in America, they are looking to the British public to deal with militant fucking Islam! […]

    It has been left to us to educate the uneducated of this country to the difference between Sikhism, Hinduism and Islam. Islam is a disease….it is a disease. Winston Churchill once said, ‘Islam in a man is the same as rabies in a dog’. And that is a quote from the famous Winston Churchill.”

    And, of course, as a result of an interview on 27 January 2010 (available here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8BXxvy4NOXM), Yaxley-Lennon is on record as very clearly indicating that his own actions are actually racially-motivated:

    “Within 30 or 40 years in this country we are a complete minority to Muslims, because of the Muslim demographics…..Our culture and OUR RACE will disappear in this country.”

    More facts:

    During Yaxley-Lennon’s appearance on the BBC’s “The Big Questions” discussion programme in April 2012, anchor Nicky Campbell suddenly confronted Yaxley-Lennon about his speech on 3 September 2011 (video available here: http://edlnews.co.uk/index.php/latest-news/latest-news/622-a-bad-weekend-gets-worse-for-tommy-on-the-bbc-s-big-question). Yaxley-Lennon’s reaction speaks volumes. Dr Matthew Goodwin, who was another guest on the debate and is a leading British academic who is an expert on the Far-Right, also challenged Yaxley-Lennon very effectively throughout the debate.

    Later on the same day, the EDL leadership posted a message on their official Twitter account, in which they attempted to publicly discredit Dr Goodwin by promoting a defamatory webpage about him. Full details, including a screenshot of the EDL leadership’s Twitter message: http://www.edlnews.co.uk/index.php/latest-news/latest-news/623-edl-tweet-nazi-websites-to-try-and-discredit-dr-goodwin.

    It turns out that the webpage which the EDL leadership are promoting is actually on “Metapedia”, a Hitler-supporting white supremacist neo-Nazi website (see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metapedia). The website is also extremely anti-Semitic.

    Furthermore, during “The Big Questions”, Yaxley-Lennon falsely accused Dr Goodwin of listing his political views as “Left. Way way left. No more left !” on his Facebook profile. That false claim actually originates on the Metapedia page slandering Dr Goodwin (see: http://en.metapedia.org/wiki/Matthew_Goodwin). So, Yaxley-Lennon was quoting from a neo-Nazi website live on air, in front of millions of viewers.

    I’ve mentioned the following before on Loonwatch, but this is a good place for a reminder of some facts:

    As a result of an interview “Tommy Robinson” (real name: Stephen Yaxley Lennon) gave to the Norwegian media in April 2012, he is now on record as publicly:

    —- Praising the terrorist Anders Breivik;
    —- Promoting Breivik’s manifesto;
    —- And most revealingly, claiming that Breivik’s mass-murdering terrorist attack would have been “easier to justify” if the people killed had been Muslims.

    Full details: http://theforeigner.no/pages/news-in-brief/breivik-was-cunning-says-edl-leader/, http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/edl-leader-forced-to-deny-praising-anders-breivik-7640181.html.

    Yaxley-Lennon also gave a speech at the EDL’s demonstration in London on 3 September 2011 in which he directly accused “every single Muslim” of collective guilt and then made a direct threat of EDL-led retribution against what he terms “the Islamic community” en masse. Yaxley-Lennon made these statements just over a month after Anders Breivik’s terrorist attack in Norway:

    “EVERY SINGLE MUSLIM watching this on Youtube, on 7/7 you got away with killing and maiming British citizens, you got away with it. You had better understand that we have built a network from one end of this country to the other end, and we will not tolerate it, and the Islamic community will feel the full force of the English Defence League if we see any of our citizens killed, maimed or hurt on British soil ever again.”

    Video footage of the extract above is available here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8j7IX_5a_9M&feature=share. Yaxley-Lennon’s full 10-minute speech is available here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWBRmuqsl5Q.

    @Remember

    Islam is not fascism and taqiyya is not lying to promote Islam. There are multiple articles on this very website, as well as countless others refuting both those premises. How many of the other stories posted here on Loon Watch have bothered reading?

    Also, Tommy Robinson is called a fascist, because he is a fascist.

    Tommy Robinson is called a fascist because he is fighting the ultimate form of religious fascism, now that is what I call Islamic rationalism, better known as taqiyya.

    mmmmm where can I buy a ticket ?
    Do you think Pam will take questions after her talk ?
    Should we run a competition for the best question to ask her ?
    or ask Blob ?
    I favour something like
    ” You would agree that those who promote violence and encourage violence should be dealt with by the police and the courts and do you know why the police have not talked to you about your encouragement of Brevik and the so called tommy Robertson ? ”

    Anyone got any other ideas for questions we could ask her ?

    This will be a fantastic way to discredit Geller and Spencer across the Atlantic. I can’t wait.

    Amago,

    Well come to think of it, if we’re really lucky this will prevent at least one or two people in Briton from taking Spencer seriously.

    @Amago

    Thanks.

    This thing ought to be “fun.” Hopefully since Tommy (the Taj Mahal is a Mosque) Robinson of the organization that brought us “Muslimic Rayguns” is going to be there at least one of them will say something unintentionally funny. If there’s going to be a small silver lining to this, that just might be it.
