hamas hostage banners put up in israel to help bring them home

This week, the Metropolitan Police in London were videotaped removing posters with pictures of hostages taken by Hamas. The posters were being removed from Cullimore Chemist in Edgware. The chemist’s CEO, Hassan Khan, recently retweeted posts branding Israel and the IDF “filthy animals” and encouraging Iran and Hezbollah to attack Israel.

This naturally caused some properly earned angst. After all, the removal of such posters has become the domain of antisemites across the world. What was the police’s excuse for removing the posters? They explained, “We do not wish to limit the rights of anyone to protest or to raise awareness of the plight of those kidnapped and the terrible impact on their families. But we do have a responsibility to take reasonable steps to stop issues escalating and to avoid any further increase in community tension.”

Stop the escalation.

Prevent the community tension.

That’s the important thing.

This week, the Metropolitan Police also reportedly arrested a man for posting a video criticizing people for putting up Palestinian flags around his neighborhood. The British police didn’t touch the flags, in the name of relieving community tension. Instead, they arrested the man who wondered why Britain would import the kinds of people who would post Palestinian flags on the street poles while Hamas is holding babies hostage.

Remember, the tensions must be reduced.

There are two ways to reduce tension in a community. The first is to cave to those who are the most dangerous and the most radical — in this case, the Hamas supporters. Criminalize anyone who would ask just why a community in the West should be expected to contain people who support Hamas. Take them to jail for asking the question on tape.

The second way to lower community tensions is to recognize that those very people who defend Hamas are a danger to your community — that the problem isn’t community quiescence, but the constituency of the community itself. 

That there can be no community with people who root for Hamas.

This should be obvious. But it isn’t. It isn’t because the West simply refuses to look reality in the face. Better to arrest those who speak it than to look reality in the face. Reality is ugly. Reality is unpleasant. And reality might require you to recognize that importation of millions of people who hate the West was an awful idea, and that means should be taken to reverse that process.

And so, instead, a way must be found to pretend away the threat.

Blame it on Israel.

Jabber about the two-state solution.

Talk about Islamophobia.

Whatever you do, don’t look the realities of multiculturalism’s dramatic failure directly in the face. This, of course, plays directly into the hands of Hamas. They now understand that they can say and do literally anything, and that much of the West will cover for them in order to maintain the fiction that multiculturalism works. They don’t even bother to hide the ball. Hamas officials have spent the last weeks explaining that they wish to murder every Jew, and that they wish for their own civilians to die.

They say it all out loud. On camera. Repeatedly. But the West won’t look Hamas in the face because then it might have to look Hamas’ supporters in the face. And while Hamas is in Gaza, Hamas’ supporters are located in our own towns. They work in our stores. They go to our schools. They staff our press and our academic institutions.

That’s too ugly and it’s too frightening. So, look away. In the name of relieving community tension.

As the community dies.

Lets be honest. all governments and groups who once called themselves liberals are not just leftists. They belong to the leftism religion. it is a religion of hate, bigotry, lies, deception and theft. this religion believes corruption is good. lying is always justified. all christian beliefs are bad, but all other beliefs are good.

The leftism religion is the religion of fascist, nazi’s and dictatorship. As a result they love being antisemitic because it gives them an easy target. this is the identical reason that the prior nazi’s attacked the jews.

There is no moral basis in the leftism religion.

seems to be Europe is going back to Hitler and before where they killed Jews right and left. more and more I see Europe and England the once who lost WWII. for Hitler’s form of communism won over Stalin’s. Hitler know that European are dumb and had to be slowly nursed into communism and now we have the EU and the one world government clowns in charge of the rest of the serfs again like the the past with the kings and queens. Hitler’s idea was to kill Jews and now Europe is doing the same. I see why England never gave back to the Jewish people their homeland which the evil Roman Empire and their dogs stolen and rename Palestine which is latin for the land of sheep. and they were not talking about the Jews because they know how much of fighters they are but the mohammedans who were coming in the future invading the land. IT Took the UN to do it which was the only thing worthwhile that the UN ever did. I am glad my ancestors were force on my mother side to leave France and go to Canada and on my father’s side to leave the UK for the United States. Such hate for the CHOSEN PEOPLE of GOD and HIS SON who died for all of you and who was born and lived HIS LIFE here as a JEW. sad.

We have the same thing here, only those stupid students protesting with the Muslims don’t seem to understand that the Muslims think they too are filthy animals. When the tide turns and the Muslims turn agains their rah-rah supporters it will be too late. It looks like Germany in the 1930’s.

“We do not wish to limit the rights of anyone to protest or to raise awareness of the plight of those kidnapped and the terrible impact on their families. But we do have a responsibility to take reasonable steps to stop issues escalating and to avoid any further increase in community tension.”
And so the police did exactly what about the below statement? Exactly NOTHING.
The chemist’s CEO, Hassan Khan, recently retweeted posts branding Israel and the IDF “filthy animals” and encouraging Iran and Hezbollah to attack Israel.
We are in a time when the world is turning a blind eye to evil and even supporting it in far too many ways. This will lead to the grand kickoff of World War 3. They only question remaining is which side will the “Allies” be on this time?

God will soon put this world in final days. The bad behavior of people, natural disasters and plagues will multiply. Then satan will take over as God allows and rule. People who haven’t sought God through Christ Jesus will think the 1 world ruler is good at first until the 3.5 year time when he demands to be worshiped. The time to escape this is now. The only way is by asking Christ to save you. He loves everyone but will only save the ones who ask. Can you imagine getting eternal life in Heaven just by asking Christ to save you? What grace! Time is growing short. Do it before it’s too late.

It is time for sane people to wake up to reality. And just what is that? First, Islam is an authoritarian, supremacist ideology masquerading as a religion. Second, Islam has been at war with the entire rest of the world for 1,400 years. Third, Islam’s goal is to conquer the world and kill everyone who gets in their way and then enslave whomever is left alive. Don’t believe me? Just read their books and listen to their words.

Very important article Mr. Shapiro, a reminder of what sort of mentality is supporting people who commit war crimes. And it should be a reminder of ways to stand up for what is right. To keep in mind the principles of Honor, Honesty , Integrity , Courage and Loyalty , in the spirit of respect for the ideals of Faith, Family and Freedom . Well done with this writing Ben , it is appreciated.
