Veiled Christmas Speech
She asserted the usual lies that Islam is a religion of peace. No aknowledgement that British Muslims have any responsibility WHATSOEVER. However, mainstream Britain needs to be more tolerant. Riiiight.
She was complaining about the media just focusing on the extremists, saying why can't they concentrate more on the moderates like her. Which for the first part I agree, however somebody who wears the niqab and thinks the war on the Taliban is wrong is not a moderate.

Cop Killer Flees Britain Using Border Loophole
I'd ask whether the sister would be prosecuted for aiding a wanted criminal, but hey, I'm sure she knew nothing about it :
An inquiry into Britain's shambolic border controls was demanded last night after a wanted man allegedly left the country disguised as a veiled Muslim woman.
David Davis, the shadow foreign secretary, said passport checks should require all travellers to show their faces whatever the religious sensitivities of doing so.
The row broke out after the disclosure this week that Mustaf Jama, who is wanted in connection with the murder of Pc Sharon Beshenivsky, may have escaped by dressing in a niqab, which covers the whole face except the eyes.
Jama, 26, is believed to have left for his native Somalia using his sister's passport. Although ports had been alerted, it is unlikely a veiled woman would have been asked to show her face during passport checks. Inspections are no longer carried out by immigration officers on a routine basis for departees.
Jama, whose brother, Yusuf Abdillh, 20, was convicted of Pc Beshenivsky's murder earlier this week, is believed to have fled over Christmas last year after the shooting in Bradford.
Mr Davis said: "The idea that under any circumstances you could be let through passport control wearing a veil is barely credible.
"Doing so when an all-points bulletin for murder has been issued demonstrates that our borders are not just porous but non-existent." He added: "The July 21 bombing plot suspect Osman Hussain also left the country when there was a bulletin out for him and went to Italy."
Shahid Malik, the Labour MP for Dewsbury, also called for an inquiry, saying: "This has got nothing to do with the veil. If it's true, which we don't yet know, and if it did happen, heads must roll."
Liam Byrne, the Home Office immigration minister, said: "It is standard practice for immigration officers to ask people to lift the veil — more than that, if immigration officers have got suspicions they fingerprint people and check them against our databases."
However, he admitted: "We don't have exit controls around the clock, around all of our borders; what we do make sure we do is respond immediately to police requests for those exit controls."
Airlines and airport staff carry out their own passport checks, however, they are not interested in border control but whether a passenger is likely to pose a risk on board.
A member of the airport staff or an airline employee does not have the power to ask a woman suspected of an offence to remove her veil.
The Home Office yesterday said ''intelligence-led" checks continued.
Last month they stopped 750 immigration offenders trying to leave Heathrow. The Government is proposing to reintroduce embarkation controls by 2009 to obtain a more accurate record of who enters or leaves.
Before the system was scrapped, about 60 per cent had their passports inspected. Most of those people leaving the country faced scrutiny to ensure they had not overstayed their visas and had fulfilled the conditions of their stay.

Rampant Islamohobia in Britain
Abdul Bari compares the British government to the government of Nazi germany, with respect to it's treatment to Muslim communities.
Yet after self-proclaimed Muslims slaughtered 52 innocent people in the capital of the UK - JEWS are 4 times more likely to be attacked than Muslims.
And where are these anti-Jewish attacks most prevalent? In the most Muslim areas of the country. Again no surprise here for the bloggers.
Words fail. If you want a trip into a fantasy land (a rather twisted one at that, read all of Mr Bari's insane and threatening diatribe linked to above).
This man claims to represent British Muslims. What an utter, utter fucking blinded hypocrite. In short, what a lying cunt.

The Channel 4 Brush Off
Thank you for contacting Channel 4 Viewer Enquiries.
We felt it fitting that the Alternative Christmas Message should be from a British Muslim woman in a year in which issues of religious and racial identity and freedom of expression have dominated the news agenda.
If you require further information, feel free to email me back or visit http://help.channel4.com/tv.

How noble! Freedom of expression! Here's my reply for what it's worth
With respect, please answer the questions. Most of the British public think it is far from "fitting". This brush off really is quite outrageous. Channel 4 did not publish the Mohammed Cartoons or Theo Van Gogh's Submission film. These have been far more prominent on the news and the "freedom of expression" agenda.
It's easy pickings to offend non-Muslims. If you really want to talk about freedom of speech you should be giving a voice to moderate muslims in Afghanistan and Iraq who are being slaughtered by religious fascists whilst walking to school, or those women in Iran who get beaten by religious authorities for demonstrating for equal rights.
Or perhaps all those British Muslims who have come out in opposition to the burqa and the niqab in Britian, and those normal Muslism who don’t go and pray in the mosque every week, and sometimes even, mix with strangers of the opposite sex.
Channel 4 seems to be consistently presenting the case for literalist and extremist Islam. When will Channel 4 embrace the real moderates? It seems Channel 4 is trying to be controversial. It has certainly achieved that, but it has consistently played the safe bet of offending non-Muslims only.
I await your answers with anticipation.
I have some questions for Channel 4's chief executive Andy Duncan
1. Why do Channel 4 go out of their way not to offend ethnic minorities, specifically the Muslim community, when Channel 4 is happy to offend large swathes of the british public - on the traditional Christian holy day of christmas - with a muslim women in a full Islamic veil?
2. Will Channel 4 be inviting beer swigging naked women to introduce Ramadan or the Eid festival next year? Or is it just open season on the british public?
3. As a non-muslim I find the veil offensive, so why aren't my views taken into account? Does political correctness only extend to minorities?
4. Why has Channel 4 never screened Submission by Theo Van Gogh? Why has Channel 4 never screened the satirical mohammed cartoons?
5. Can Channel 4 not see that is is fueling extremism, resentment and antagonism against Britiains Muslim community by deciding to air the voice of an Islamic extremist - I use the word extemist since only 1% of Britains muslim population wear the full face veil?

'We wish you a dhimmi Christmas...'
'& a jihadi new year!'.. from cheery Channel 4.
Desperate to make up for crap Christmas ratings, Channel Fwors weally weally wadical Alternative Christmas speech for 2006 will be hosted by a woman in a niqab.
Previous years this show has been hosted by comedians, eccentrics and Jamie Oliver. But ratings arent great and the Queen still has the edge on the Christmas speech giving.
So is this a joke? Is this a Private Eye moment? Prepare to hit the off switch faster than ever at Xmas. Or find some leftovers to chuck at the screen.
It is possible of course that 'Khadija' will rock up as shown here. If not this will be about as welcome as watching a nativity with Osama and pals playing the shepherds or something. Outstanding Channel 4! Honestly, Khadija's best bet would be to trot over for a Trinnie and Susannah makeover on 'What Not to Wear'.
A veiled Muslim woman will deliver this year's alternative Christmas speech on Channel 4, the broadcaster has said. Khadija, a Zimbabwean-born British citizen who has been wearing the full veil - or niqab - for 10 years (good for her eh?!), has been given the slot. The message will reflect a year in which the wearing of religious clothing and symbols have "dominated the news agenda", said a Channel 4 spokesman.
Channel 4's spokesman also said that the controversy has "generated a debate about multiculturalism, secularism and integration - a debate in which British Muslims have played a key role and one that will shape the future of British society". (So they drag out another fundamentalist...well done)

Backlash Against Muslims After 7/7 Exaggerated
LONDON (Reuters) - Fears that the country's Muslim community would be become the target of widespread race hate crimes in the aftermath of the July 7 London bombings last year have proved exaggerated, prosecutors said on Monday.
Figures from the Crown Prosecution Service showed that while there had been a blip in attacks against Muslims and Asians after four Muslim extremists detonated bombs on the underground and a bus, there had been no major backlash.
"The fears of a large rise in offences appear to be unfounded," said Director of Public Prosecutions Ken Macdonald.
"Although there were more cases in July 2005 than for any other month, the rise did not continue into August and overall in 2005-2006 there was an increase of nine cases compared to the previous year."
"From the summary case reports sent to me for religiously aggravated offences, we have noted 12 such cases for the month ... after July 7 and in six of those cases the defendants referred specifically to the London bombings," he added in a statement.
In the weeks after the suicide attacks which killed 52 and wounded 700, some Muslim groups had said crimes against Muslims and Asians had risen by as much as 600 percent in the immediate aftermath.
Macdonald said the figures revealed charges for racially aggravated offences rose 28 percent to nearly 7,500 defendants although prosecutors only pursued court cases against 6,123 individuals.
As for religiously aggravated crimes, the increase was 26.5 percent to 43, although only 41 cases actually ended up in a court.
Out of the 43 cases, the actual or perceived religion of the victim was known in only 22 incidences of which over 80 percent were Muslim.
