Intimidation in Northern Ireland Towards Muslims is Deeply Worrying

Katie Hopkins: Muslim Hajjis Practice Sharia Stoning

This morning we highlighted deeply offensive comments by ‘Twitter’ spinner Karen Danczuk. It seems that the lives of 717 Muslim pilgrims becomes Twitter chatter for some. Never to miss an opportunity to build a career on inflammatory statements, Katie Hopkins has also jumped into the mix. Yesterday she tweeted the following: “717 pilgrims killed in

The pilgrims were crushed as they carried out the sacred ceremony of the Hajj pilgrimage in the ancient city of Mecca. Instead of sending condolences, Danczuk decided to state

‘House Muslims’ is just as bad as ‘House N……’.

There are those on Twitter who think that they are fighting the good fight against racism and who shout Islamophobia at the slightest drop of a hat, thereby devaluing the word. The moral guardians of the Internet, these individuals are mainly aged between 20-35 and who spend their time on Twitter railing against prejudice and

Did an anti-Muslim petition achieve a parliamentary debate with fake signatures?

Did an anti-Muslim petition achieve a parliamentary debate with fake signatures?

MPs are to debate claims that “foreign citizens are taking all our benefits” and immigrants are “trying to change UK into a Muslim country” on October 19. Any parliamentary petition signed by more than 100,000 people becomes eligible for debate. But are the 186,174 signatures collected genuine? The petition first appeared on a thread on Democracy Forum on August 26. When the poster first promoted the petition it had just 8 signatures. A day later, thanks to social media spamming, the number hit 1,000 signatures. As one poster reflected: “It’s now been shared on a few USA sites so hopefully will get a few more signatories”. By 7pm on August 27, the user who shared the petition wrote: “1400 is a reasonable number considering the petition is only 3 days old”. On September 3, a forum post confirmed that the petition had hit 8,000 signatures. But is that rise a product of online spam? Hours before that post, an individual in a 4chan discussion advocating the racist spamming of a pro-refugee petition wrote: “Guys 5,000 nearly signed this petition to end immigration to UK GET IN HERE, AND USE THE FROGS GENERATOR”. Screenshot of the post advocating the spam tactic [...]

Institutional Anti-Muslim Bigotry More Insidious

Anti-Muslim bigotry, it seems, comes in various shapes and guises. From the abuse on the street, through to the attack on a mosque or individual, there are multiple impacts. Yet, we should also ensure that we reflect on anti-Muslim bigotry within the workplace and how power relations can be used to further victimis those who

Hungarian Prime Minister, Viktor Orban, Reportedly Says Hungary Does not Want Large Numbers of Muslim Refugees

Hungarian Prime Minister, Viktor Orban, has reportedly said that his country does not want to take in large number of Muslims, as Syrian refugees pass through the country and mainly onto Germany. Speaking to journalists outside EU headquarters in Brussels, he is reported to have said, “I think we have a right to decide that

Europe’s current crisis reflects its own anxieties about Muslims

A footnote to Europe’s ongoing crisis is the rising use of anti-Muslim rhetoric. Hungary’s nationalist prime minister, Viktor Orbán, defended the erecting of a razor-wire fence on its southern border through the language of cultural and religious difference. Orbán stated that “most of them are not Christians, but Muslims,” and that “Europe and European identity is rooted in Christianity. Is it not worrying in itself that European Christianity is now barely able to keep Europe Christian?” Antal Rogan, the parliament caucus leader of Orbán’s Fidesz party, said on Tuesday that “the very existence of Christian Europe” was at stake. Rogan also told the pro-government newspaper Magyar Idok “Would we like our grandchildren to grow up in a United European Caliphate? My answer to that is no”. Ivan Metik, a spokesperson for Slovakia’s interior ministry spokesman said last month: “We want to help Europe with the migration issue. We could take 800 Muslims but we don’t have any mosques in Slovakia so how can Muslims be integrated if they are not going to like it here?” In July, Slovakia’s prime minister, Robert Fico, argued that Christians would cause less tension. He added that terrorists might attempt to mingle among Muslim refugees. [...]
