AUSTRALIA: Muslim brawl breaks out after three Muslims were convicted of brawling with police

image.aspxMoments after three Muslim brothers were convicted over a brawl with police, there was screaming, punching and wailing as another altercation with officers erupted at a Sydney court.

SMH (h/t Marina)  Dozens of police officers have been involved in a brawl inside a Sydney court with a family on trial for brawling with police.

One officer was “smacked in the face” during the fight, witness and 2UE court reporter Leonie Ryan said. The fight broke out minutes after Adel, Hussain and Ali Mehanna were convicted of numerous offences, including affray, resisting arrest and assaulting police during a fight that broke out outside their Bankstown home on January 1, 2013.

Five Mehanna family members were facing police assault charges after the brawl. Ali Mehanna, who was allegedly involved in Tuesday’s scrum on level four, kept screaming: “This is police brutality. Ryan said Adel Mehanna was inside the dock of the courtroom when he started screaming: “I’m going to f—ing kill you.”

Officers then stormed in as Corrective Services attempted to take him away. “We walked out of court, we were standing outside the doors and all of a sudden we just hear screaming. We turned around and it was almost like a football match brawl,” she said.

As bewildered members of staff and the public stared on, six officers tried to restrain one of the brothers who lay writhing on the floor, screaming: “Help me, somebody help me.” His mother Rafah Mehanna wailed and screamed out “No, no”. She was later taken from the court in an ambulance.

“There were punches being thrown everywhere. It was just fists flying everywhere and screaming.” She said one police officer was punched in the face before a man was tackled to the ground and handcuffed.

Ali Mehanna told reporters outside the court that his brother, who was arrested over the brawl, was the victim of an “unprovoked attack”. “They provoked my brother as he walked out, they found a reason and then ‘bang’ they jumped on him,” Ali Mehanna said.

Family supporter Hassan Anthony kept repeating the words “police brutality”. “They hit him [a family] to the face, they kneed him in the back,” Mr Anthony said. “There was no mercy, all because they [police officers] are wearing the colour blue,” he said.

Why you should fear your ‘peaceful’ Muslim neighbors

Islam-means-peace-e1397627877279

A German’s View on Islam

The author of this piece is Dr. Emanuel Tanya, a well-known and well-respected psychiatrist. A man, whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II, owned a number of large industries and estates. When he was asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism.

‘Very few people were true Nazis,’ he said, ‘but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care.

I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories.’

We are told again and again by ‘experts’ and ‘talking heads’ that Islam is the religion of peace and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace.

Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the specter of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam.

The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history.

It is the fanatics who march.

It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide.

It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave.

It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honor-kill. 

It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque.

It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals.

It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become suicide bombers.

The hard, quantifiable fact is that the peaceful majority, the ‘silent majority,’ is cowed and extraneous.

Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant.

China’s huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people.

The average Japanese individual prior to World War II was not a warmongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians; most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet.

And who can forget Rwanda, which collapsed into butchery. Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were ‘peace loving’?

History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt, yet for all our powers of reason, we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points:

Peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence.

Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don’t speak up, because like my friend from Germany, they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world will have begun.

Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late.

Now Islamic prayers have been introduced into Toronto and other public schools in Ontario, and, yes, in Ottawa too while the Lord’s Prayer was removed (due to being so offensive?) The Islamic way may be peaceful for the time being in our country until the fanatics move in.

In Australia, and indeed in many countries around the world, many of the most commonly consumed food items have the halal emblem on them.

Just look at the back of some of the most popular chocolate bars, and at other food items in your local supermarket.

Food on aircraft have the halal emblem, just to appease the privileged minority who are now rapidly expanding within the nation’s shores.

In the U.K, the Muslim communities refuse to integrate and there are now dozens of “no-go” zones within major cities across the country that the police force dare not intrude upon.

Sharia law prevails there, because the Muslim community in those areas refuse to acknowledge British law.

As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts – the fanatics who threaten our way of life.

Lastly, anyone who doubts that the issue is serious and just deletes this email without sending it on, is contributing to the passiveness that allows the problems to expand.

So, extend yourself a bit and send this on and on and on! Let us hope that thousands, world-wide, read this and think about it, and they also continue to send it on – before it’s too late.

And we are silent….

Canadian Jihadi in Syria threatens to bring violent jihad back to North America

The most extreme armed faction in Syria has threatened to destroy Canada.  Speaking in flawless English, a member of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant said in an online video that after fighting in the Middle East, the group would turn on North America.

About 130 radicalized Canadians are believed to remain active abroad, while 80 have returned to Canada from various conflict zones, as Western governments are struggling to deal with radicalized citizens infatuated with Al-Qaeda ideology. (So, why is Canada allowing them back in?)

Hmmm, now ‘The Daily Beast’ has 3rd rate Muslim comedians writing political commentary

dean obeidallah bigI guess when you’re a failed comedian (jokes about Islamophobia have a limited audience), you get to write articles for a 3rd rate leftist website. Here is Palestinian-American Muslim Dean Obeidallah’s opinion about the anti-Islam textbook bill recently passed in Florida.

‘Islamophobic’ Florida Republican Would Legalize Textbook Censorship

images-2

The Daily Beast  A state senator who says Muslims threaten America wants to give more control to local school boards after a ‘hate’ group asked students to tear out one book’s chapter on Islam.

Could a seemingly innocent education bill championed by Republicans actually be a way for them to censor school textbooks and prevent students from learning about certain (Islam) cultures and religions?  In the words of Sarah Palin: “You betcha.”

islam-textbook-6

On Friday, the Florida State Senate passed a bill drafted by Republican Senator Alan Hays that would change the way textbooks are chosen in the Sunshine State. This measure, which was opposed by every Democratic Senator, would alter a process that had been created to “avoid religious and political bias” and empower the local school districts to choose their own textbooks without the approval of the Florida Department of Education.

23888253_bg1

But there’s more to this legislation than just education, after all it’s opposed by the Florida Parent Teacher Association and the Florida School Board Association. Add to that, this proposal was not requested by any local school boards. In fact, some boards have voiced concerns that they lack the funds and resources to review textbooks.

So why this law? Well, two reasons. It’s part of the Republicans backlash to the Common Core academic standards that they incorrectly dub a federal program. It’s not, it’s a bipartisan State initiative started by Governors.

But the bigger reason Senator Hays is pushing for this law is because of Islam. No, he isn’t a Muslim. Thankfully.

Basic CMYK

You see, in November a protest erupted in Volusia County, Florida by outraged parents who claimed the school’s world history textbook had dedicated more pages to Islam than other religions.  One of the protest organizers even recommended that students tear out the chapter onIslam. God forbid Florida students learn about other cultures and religions (No, only Islam).

Sarmiento-edict_0

Soon anti-Muslim groups got involved to stop the “Islamization of public school” textbooks, including the despicable “Act for America.” When you see the name, “Act for America” please keep in mind that the (Communist) Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has listed it as a hate group and the (Far leftist) Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has identified them as “extremists.”

Well these Muslim book bashers found a perfect friend in Senator Hays.  After all, for the past four years Hays has introduced legislation to ban sharia law in Florida courts. Of course, there hasn’t been any instances of people trying to impose Sharia law in Florida but why should Hays let facts get in the way of demonizing Muslims when it plays to his base? And play to his base it does.

And the Republican Party in Hays own Senate district recently featured a speaker from “Act for America” – yes, that horrible group – (only horrible to Muslim supremacists like you) who offered a talk described as: “If you believe that Islam is just another religion (and not a threat to America and the world)…then you especially need to hear this presentation.”

1-7541590fc0-1-e1397620887699

But putting aside Hays personal views about Muslims, the legislation is alarming because it could lead to censorship. As Democratic Florida State Senator Geraldine Thompson explained to me, this law would enable all 67 Florida school districts to adopt their own textbooks. Consequently, some districts may ban books that discuss other lifestyles or cultures they find objectionable.

textbook-e1397621024708

I reached out to Senator Hays for comment but he never responded. Although I wasn’t surprised because his staffer I spoke to had never heard of The Daily Beast. (Only leftists have ever heard of this biased rag)

This proposed law could truly result in conservative school districts putting aside what’s in the best interest of the students (Islam is NEVER in the best interest of anyone) and instead only choosing textbooks that teach political and social views that comport with their right wing politics. (As if anything related to the far left American school system could be considered right wing)

At this point, the Senate bill is headed to the Florida State House for consideration. Hopefully, the members of the Florida House, Democrats and Republicans alike, will reject Senator Hays’ proposed legislation.  Any other result will open the dangerous door of censorship in the Florida school system. (NOT censoring Islam is the only danger to Florida schools)

NIGERIA: More than 100 schoolgirls kidnapped by Islamic terror group Boko Haram

boko-haramHeavily armed men have kidnapped more than 100 girls from a secondary school in northeast Nigeria’s Borno state and torched the surrounding town, a day after a deadly bombing in the African state’s capital.

Al-Jazeera (h/t Maria J) No one claimed responsibility for Tuesday’s kidnapping, but fingers were pointed at fighters of the armed group Boko Haram, which means “Western education is forbidden”.

The attackers killed a soldier and police officer guarding the school, then took off with at least 100 students, a State Security Service official said.

Some of the girls managed to escape from the back of an open lorry, other officials said.

“Many girls were abducted by the rampaging gunmen who stormed the school in a convoy of vehicles,” Emmanuel Sam, an education official in the town of Chibok, where the attack took place, told AFP news agency.

He spoke from Borno’s capital Maiduguri where he said he fled after the attack at the Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok.

The attackers came “in trucks and on motorcycles and headed to the school”, where they overpowered soldiers deployed to guard it, a witness who requested anonymity said.

Boko Haram has repeatedly attacked schools in the northeast during an insurgency that has killed thousands since 2009. In an attack earlier this year in Borno, witnesses said Boko Haram fighters surrounded a girls’ school, forced the students to leave and ordered them to immediately return to their villages. (Yet, the president of the United States tells Nigeria to show restraint in going after these terrorists)

The fighters are known to be abducting girls to use as cooks and sex slaves. Boko Haram wants to establish a state ruling by Islamic law in the northeast. Nigeria’s Muslims mainly live in the north while Christians mostly in the south.

MUSLIM TERRORISTS REJOICE! NYC Mayor DeBlasio disbands plain clothes police surveillance of Muslim areas

images-11The New York Police Department has abandoned a secretive program that dispatched plainclothes detectives into Muslim neighborhoods to eavesdrop on conversations and built detailed files on where people ate, prayed and shopped, the department said.

NY Times  The decision by the nation’s largest police force to shutter the surveillance program represents the first sign that William J. Bratton, the department’s new commissioner, is backing away from some of the post-9/11 intelligence-gathering practices of his predecessor. The move comes as the federal government reconsiders and re-evaluates some of its post-9/11 policies, including the National Security Agency’s bulk data collection.

6a00d8341c60bf53ef019b0012d558970b-700wi

The Police Department’s tactics, which are the subject of two federal lawsuits, drew criticism from civil rights groups and a senior official with the Federal Bureau of Investigation who said they harmed national security by sowing mistrust for law enforcement in Muslim communities.

To many Muslims, the squad, known as the Demographics Unit, was a sign that the police viewed their every action with suspicion. The police mapped communities inside and outside the city, logging where customers in traditional Islamic clothes ate meals and documenting their lunch-counter conversations.

“The Demographics Unit created psychological warfare in our community,” said Linda Sarsour, of the Arab American Association of New York. “Those documents, they showed where we live. That’s the cafe where I eat. That’s where I pray. That’s where I buy my groceries. They were able to see their entire lives on those maps. And it completely messed with the psyche of the community.”

Ms. Sarsour was one of several advocates who met last Wednesday with Mr. Bratton and some of his senior staff members at Police Headquarters. She and others in attendance said the department’s new intelligence chief, John Miller, told them that the police did not need to work covertly to find out where Muslims gather and indicated the department was shutting the unit down.

The Demographics Unit, which dates to 2003 and was renamed the Zone Assessment Unit in recent years, has been largely inactive since Mr. Bratton took over in January, the department’s chief spokesman, Stephen Davis, said. The unit’s detectives were recently reassigned, he said.

“Understanding certain local demographics can be a useful factor when assessing the threat information that comes into New York City virtually on a daily basis,” Mr. Davis said. “In the future, we will gather that information, if necessary, through direct contact between the police precincts and the representatives of the communities they serve.”

maxresdefault-e1397610026922

The unit was the brainchild of the Central Intelligence Agency officer Lawrence Sanchez, who helped establish it in 2003 while working at the Police Department and while he was still on the spy agency’s payroll.

The goal was to identify the mundane locations where a would-be terrorist could blend into society. Plainclothes detectives looked for “hot spots” of radicalization that might give the police an early warning about terrorist plots. The squad, which typically consisted of about a dozen members, focused on 28 “ancestries of interest.”

Muslims-protest-NYPD-spying-2

Detectives were told to chat up the employees at Muslim-owned businesses and “gauge sentiment” about America and foreign policy. Through maps and photographs, the police noted where Albanian men played chess in the afternoon, where Egyptians watched soccer and where South Asians played cricket.

Mr. Bratton has said that he intends to try to heal rifts between the Police Department and minority communities that have felt alienated as a result of policies pursued during the Bloomberg administration.

9079411530_ce92683068_z

The meeting last week put Mr. Bratton in the room with some of his department’s harshest critics.

“This is the first time we’ve felt that comfort sitting with them,” said Ahmad Jaber, who resigned from the Police Department’s Muslim advisory board last year to protest the surveillance tactics. “It’s a new administration, and they are willing to sit with the community and listen to their concerns.”

Under DeBlasio, New York City now has women policebagheads!

Under DeBlasio, New York City now has Muslim women policebagheads!

The Demographics Unit was one aspect of a broad intelligence-gathering effort. In addition, informants infiltrated Muslim student groups on college campuses and collected the names, phone numbers and addresses of those who attended. Analysts trawled college websites and email groups to keep tabs on Muslim scholars and who attended their lectures.

The police also designated entire mosques as suspected “terrorism enterprises,” a label that the police claimed allowed them to collect the license plate numbers of every car in mosque parking lots, videotape worshipers coming and going, and record sermons using informants wearing hidden microphones.

As a candidate, Mayor Bill de Blasio said he was “deeply troubled” by the tactic of surveilling mosques. Despite investigations that stretched for years, the Police Department’s efforts never led to charges that a mosque or Islamic organization was itself a terrorist enterprise.

The future of those programs remains unclear. The former police commissioner, Raymond W. Kelly, has said his efforts were lawful and helped protect the city from terrorist attacks. Last month, a federal judge in New Jersey dismissed a lawsuit over the department’s surveillance there, saying Muslims could not prove they were harmed by the tactics.

It’s true! Al-Qaeda IS on the run…and it’s spreading like wildfire

Last week, a House Foreign Affairs subcommittee held a hearing provocatively titled “Is Al-Qaeda Winning?” The answers that the Subcommittee on Terrorism and Nonproliferation received were profoundly unsettling.

Heritage  Al-Qaeda has made a comeback in Iraqand gained followers in Egypt, LibyaMaliEast Africa, and Yemen.

screenhunter_723-mar-19-09-35

Former Senator Joseph Lieberman (I–Conn.) testified that Syria had become a key focal point of al-Qaeda’s efforts. He noted that there are more foreign militants fighting in Syria today than in Iraq and Afghanistan combined over the past 10 years:  “Put very bluntly, Syria has become the most dangerous terrorist sanctuary in the world today—and the United States has not coherent or credible policy for dealing with it.”

Christian Village

Frederick Kagan, director of the critical threats project at the American Enterprise Institute, warned that the Obama Administration has underestimated the threat posed by al-Qaeda’s ideology, which has inspired a global insurgency.

fallujah_sly-1024x573-e1397581390954

He assessed that al-Qaeda’s “brand is spreading like wildfire, the groups affiliating themselves with it control more fighters, land and wealth than they ever have, and they are opening up new fronts.”

BjcDc_bCIAAmVjs.png-medium

Heritage Foundation analysts long have warned about the more permissive environment that al-Qaeda and other Islamist extremist groups have exploited in many countries destabilized by the “Arab Spring” uprisings.  Syria, in particular, has been a magnet for foreign militants and a rich recruiting ground for al-Qaeda.

globalresearch-fighting_alqaeda_by_supporting_alqaeda_in_syria_obama_admin_is_a_state_sponsor_of_terrorism

The chief takeaway from the hearing was that the Obama Administration needs to focus more on the revolutionary threat posed by al-Qaeda and its affiliates in the Middle East and Africa. Furthermore, the administration should alter its narrow definition of the al-Qaeda threat, which it currently holds as the immediate terrorist threat posed by the al-Qaeda core group based in Pakistan.

This is how they treat animals in Gaza (Viewer Discretion Advised)

Savage abuse of Australian cattle continues in Gaza five months after first being reported.

011-e1397544258786

Ban Live Export  The good news, is that after receiving evidence from Animals Australia in November, the Australian Government ceased granting export permits to Gaza.The bad news, is that this was no help to the thousands of cattle who were en-route at the time. Since then, at least 4,631 exported cattle have been sent to the slaughterhouses of Gaza. And countless more to halal slaughter houses in other Muslim countries.

This ongoing cruelty could have been avoided had exporters been complying with regulations. Tragically, the Australian Government’s live export ‘assurance’ system is providing anything but ‘assurance’. The truth is that nobody — not live exporters, nor the Australian government — can guarantee that animals in the live export trade won’t be brutally killed.

The Australian bull in this video was illegally sold, stabbed in the eye, and brutally killed in Gaza. He, along with over 4,000 other Australian cattle, has been sent to the slaughterhouses of Gaza since November. During this time, not one single facility complied with regulations. During this time, the Australian exporter was aware that shocking abuse had occurred in past months. Yet animals continued to be abandoned to this cruelty.

Take action today, and help spare an animal from suffering this brutal fate. Ask your MP to support a phase out of live exports — for jobs, for the economy, and most importantly, for the animals. Click here for more information: Ban Live Export

GOOD GRIEF! Another Jewish pseudo-intellectual smears Ayaan Hirsi Ali in an attempt to separate omnipresent Muslim misogyny from Islam

Brandeis-Caves-to-Islamic-Supremacist-Thuggery

‘Racist’ Brandeis University has withdrawn the honorary degree promised Ayaan Hirsi Ali after realizing that Ali, a former Muslim herself, has criticized Islam in the past. In fact, criticizing Islam was the focus of her best-selling memoir ‘Infidel.’  

Cathy ReisenwitzCathy Reisenwitz is an Editor at Young Voices and a D.C.-based writer and political commentator. She is Editor-in-Chief of Sex and the State, a regular contributor to Bitcoin Magazine, and her writing has appeared in Forbes, the Chicago Tribune, VICE Motherboard, Reason magazine, and Talking Points Memo.

HUFFPO  The petition to reject her was written by a barely literate undergrad peeved that the university would honor someone who is “an outright Islamophobic.” (An “outright Islamophobic? Oh my, Brandeis certainly doesn’t have the high admission standards it used to)

It’s one thing to point out that, generally speaking, Islamic cultures worldwide tolerate what non-Islamic people would call misogyny more than other cultures. Female genital mutilation, child brides, violently enforced dress codes for women are more prevalent in Islamic societies than in non-Islamic societies. This is true, and needs to be said.

Bk9XUNECUAEaaum.jpg-large

But it’s quite another to say Islam itself is misogynistic. Ali has pointed out that the Quran mandates harsh punishments for women and described the religion as a “cage.” Her message is that Islam oppresses women. She has said, “I think we are at war with Islam.” (And as someone who was born and raised into that culture, who better to speak for it, or, in her case, against it?)

It is lazy and unhelpful to take the craziest, worst people/aspects of a religion or ideology and use them to critique it as a whole. (But it’s not the craziest, worst people, it is most people, following the teachings of the quran)

It’s lazy because it lacks nuance and understanding. (Ah yes, “nuance,” the left’s new favorite buzzword to diminish the opinions of anyone with whom they disagree) Islam is the fastest-growing religion on the planet (mostly by force or intimidation). It’s been around a while and is practiced in a multitude of ways throughout the globe. To say it is necessarily anything, other than maybe monotheistic, is necessarily to stereotype and overgeneralize. (Spoken like a true ignorant liberal who knows nothing about Islam)

Ayaan-Hirsi-Ali-machine-1-e1397530319545

And it’s unhelpful. Because Islam isn’t the enemy, misogyny is. Calling Islam misogynistic makes Islam the enemy, which makes the Muslims who love it and hold it dear the enemy. (DING DING DING! That’s the first correct thing you’ve said)

You simply cannot decry an entire religion and then expect to be considered a credible source on how to make it better. (Ever hear of the Reformation?) Defeating the misogyny lurking in how many people practice Islam is best done by first understanding Islam, its context, and its history. (Something you obviously do not, but Hirsi Ali does)

JLKCsni-e13967369436001

It’s when people fail to do this that they are charged with “cultural imperialism.” And as culture reformers, it’s important to recognize the real threat it poses. There is an imperialist element and history to Western desire to go and tell the rest of the world how they should live. It is presumptuous, at the very least, to assume “our way” is better. That doesn’t mean we’re wrong. It does mean, however, that we should be careful. (Ah yes, a blame-America-first, self-hating, dhimmi Jew if ever there was one)

“Here’s how it might benefit you to do Islam this way,” is an easier, less problematic sell than “Islam is bad.” (Only if you haven’t been a victim of it)

However, we cannot be so afraid of cultural imperialism, as Brandeis appears to be (Brandeis IS), that we refuse to point out, or listen to those who point out, the ways the current practices of many Islamic communities are major human rights violations. (Exactly what Hirsi Ali does)

1464598_10202296261395284_443977781_n

We need a healthy fear of cultural imperialism. But we cannot let that fear silence cultural critique. We must remember that respect for culture is needed to understand culture, which is needed to critique culture, which is needed to improve culture. (Let’s see how much “respect” you have after they slice off your clitoris)

While there is a tension, and we must beware of cultural imperialism and making enemies out of Muslims, that tension is not best dealt with by silencing Islam’s critics. The way to rebut Ali’s claims that Islam is fundamentally misogynist is to bring in Muslims who agitate for female equality. Because ultimately, a university which prides itself on social justice and equality should not be so afraid of charges of Islamophobia that it squelches critiques aimed at improving life for women and girls throughout the globe. (Yet, that is exactly what you have just done, Cathy)

UK: Now 25 Birmingham schools are under investigation in the ‘Trojan Horse’ Islamofascist plot

UnknownProbe into the plot to replace teachers with fundamentalist Muslims and radical Islamic teachings widens to at least 25 Birmingham schools. Thousands of schoolchildren’s education could have been threatened by a hardline Muslim plot to force out moderate school officials and teachers and replace them with extremists and radical Islamists.

jihadist-schools

UK Daily Mail  It emerged today that 25 Birmingham schools are now being investigated for links to the alleged radicalization plot, and while Birmingham City Council has refused to name the schools, some of which have upwards of 600 students, it means that vast numbers of pupils could have been at risk.

The number of schools allegedly involved rose today from 15 to 25 as Education Secretary Michael Gove is said to have told Ofsted inspectors to fail any school ‘where religious conservatism is getting in the way of learning and a balanced curriculum’.

The original four schools now has risen to 25

The original four schools now has risen to 25

This afternoon Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg backed the investigations, saying schools should not be allowed to become ‘silos of segregation’.

As the scale of the alleged plot became apparent, Birmingham City Council appointed a new chief adviser, former head teacher Ian Kershaw, to handle at least 200 complaints received in relation to the ‘Trojan Horse’ alleged plot to take over primary, secondary, and community schools as well as academies in the city.

The unsigned and undated Trojan Horse letter claimed that a small but radical group of Muslims was pursuing its own agenda in the classrooms, with uncooperative headteachers and governors forced out.

article-2576961-1C28C4E700000578-931_306x298

It said that the plot had caused ‘a great amount of organised disruption’ in the city, crediting it with forcing a change of leadership at four schools. At the centre of the scandal is Birmingham’s Park View Academy, where it is alleged that £70,000 was spent on loudspeakers to call pupils to Islamic prayers.

Birmingham City Council’s investigation will run beside a separate inquiry by the Department for Education (DfE), and will report back on 15 schools initially next month, with a fuller report due in July.

Headteachers and governors judged to be performing ‘inadequately’ in terms of pushing religious views to the detriment of children’s education may be immediately dismissed.

Since the appearance of the letter in March, anonymous whistle-blowers including former staff have come forward, making claims that boys and girls were segregated in classrooms and assemblies, and sex education was banned.

It was also alleged that non-Muslim staff had been bullied, and in one case it was alleged that the teachings of a firebrand Al Qaeda-linked Muslim preacher praised to pupils.

Birmingham City Council today announced the six-month appointment of Mr Kershaw, managing director of Northern Education, to handle the investigation, and the council said it was also setting up a review group made up of MPs, councillors, police and faith groups.

The council’s leader, Sir Albert Bore, said the investigation was slowed by the two-tier school system, which meant that academies, which are at the centre of the allegations, were answerable not to the local authority but to the DfE, calling the situation ‘frustrating in the extreme’.

And Sir Albert suggested that the alleged Muslim extremist plot may extend beyond Birmingham, saying that his authority had spoken to councils in both Manchester and Bradford. He said: ‘There are certainly issues in Bradford which have similarities with the issues being spoken about in Birmingham.’

Fresh claims have emerged in Manchester and at Bradford’s Laisterdyke Business and Enterprise College and Carlton Bolling College.An Ofsted spokesman said it had not begun inspections there, but did not rule it out.

Sir Albert also said that West Midlands Police, which has reopened a fraud inquiry into one of the schools caught up in the allegations, was still looking into the authorship of the Trojan Horse document, the authenticity of which is still unclear.

One of the schools being investigated over extremist infiltration cancelled its annual visit from Father Christmas last year. Teacher Vicky Hubble, who organized the event at the secular Ladypool Primary School, was allegedly told to cancel it by the new Muslim headmaster, Huda Aslam. He is said to have told her there would be no presents and ‘no mention’ of Jesus being the son of God.
