ClickBait Tactics of Britain First Around Rotherham Are Deeply Inflammatory

Britain First’s on-line tactics are concerning and reflective of the manipulative manner in which they attempt to build their on-line presence and ultimately, raise more money from the merchandising of their materials. The use of pop-ups which ask a question with 2 simple responses, (‘yes’ or ‘no’), confront the reader and get them to engage

White supremacist Frazier Glenn Miller Jr. guilty of murder in Jewish center shootings

The man who admitted killing three people at two suburban Kansas City Jewish sites told jurors he hoped to “die a martyr” for the shootings. It took the jury little over two hours to find Frazier Glenn Miller Jr., 74, guilty of capital murder, three counts of attempted murder and assault and weapons charges. As jurors left court, Miller raised his right arm in a Nazi salute and told them: “You probably won’t sleep tonight.” None of his victims were Jewish. Their names are William Corporon, 69, a physician; his 14-year-old grandson, Reat Underwood; and Terri LaManno, 53. A fact Miller did not learn until six days after the shootings. Frazier Glenn Miller, also known as Frazier Glenn Cross, wrote on a courtroom poster board “Diversity is a code word for white genocide”. Miller’s virulent antisemitism and white supremacist ideology has never been in doubt. His website, with its rudimentary design, mixes the iconographies of the Ku Klux Klan and the Confederate flag. He recommends visitors check out ex-KKK grand wizard David Duke and get ‘jew-wise’. Miller published his own book, titled ‘A White Man Speaks Out,’ written between 1987-1990 (when in prison), and completed in 1999. He joined the […]

IS in Syria Executes Over 90 People in a Month

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has stated that IS (Islamic State) executed over 90 people in the last month in Syria, with a third of them being civilians. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that 32 civilians were among 91 people executed for ‘crimes’ that took place between July 29th and August 29th 2015. These included residents in areas controlled by the so-called Caliphate and which included forces loyal to Bashar Al-Assad, rebel fighters and even those affiliated with IS. Some of the crimes that are punishable by death include ‘witch-craft’,  homsexuality and working with the US-led Coalition. To date, since the Caliphate was announced across Iraq and parts of Syria, approximately 3,156 people have been executed by IS. This includes about 1,841 civilians who have also lost their lives. Some of these executions have been filmed and promoted by the media arm of IS, Al-Hayat, which produced high definition videos on the gruesome beheadings and crucifixions of individuals. Videos have also been circulated of alleged homosexuals being thrown off the roofs of buildings.

Scholar’s corner: where does Islamic fundamentalism stem from?

Dr. Imam Mamadou Bocoum is a holder of two Masters and a PhD from The Muslim College, and Heythrop College, University of London. He is a lecturer in Islamic Studies; a Board member of the Muslim Law Council UK and an interfaith consultant. He is currently a consultant at Faith Matters and Tell Mama. Mamadou has authored a number of written works which have included: The Position of Jews and Christians in the Qur’an; Faith and Citizenship in Islam; The status of Women in Islam; Islamic Fundamentalism and the Qur’an. He can be reached at mbocoum@yahoo.com; Mamadou@tellmamauk.org. While delivering a talk on ‘extremism in the religion of Islam’, an audience member shouted: “Bush, Blair and Bin Laden are all f——s”. I pretended that I had not heard but this was to no avail as the same individual shouted again – but this time in a louder tone – “All of them are f——s”.  The heckler’s pronunciation was rather difficult to interpret (like mine!) and I thought that he meant the offensive six-letter designation. It proved a great relief when someone clarified that the ‘f word’ was fundamentalist. I then responded that besides sharing initial ‘B’ in their respective family names, […]
