Labour leader promises Sharia if elected

Quoting from International Business Times (report by Kalyan Kumar):

"With Britain going to polls in a week’s time on May 7, parties are wooing influential social groups for support. Latest in that practice is Labour Party leader Ed Miliband, who has promised outlawing "Islamophobia" if he becomes the next prime minister... Miliband made this statement in an interview with The Muslim News, "We are going to make Islamophobia an aggravated crime. We are going to make sure it is marked on people's records with the police to make sure they root out Islamophobia as a hate crime. We are going to change the law on this so we make it absolutely clear of our abhorrence of hate crime and Islamophobia. It will be the first time that the police will record Islamophobic attacks right across the country,” Miliband said."

The author also reminds that this is repeat offense for the Labour: "Between 2001 and 2005, the Labour government led by Prime Minister Tony Blair tried twice to amend Part 3 of the Public Order Act 1986 to cover its existing provisions on racial hatred to religious hatred as well. In January 2006, the House of Lords approved the Racial and Religious Hatred Act 2006, but only after amending it to make sure that the law would be limited to banning only "threatening" words and not any abusive or insulting words."

Allison Pearson at the Telegraph comments the same news and puts it in the perspective of what has already happened in Britain even without such a law: how the authorities were happy to cover up gang-rapes and enslavement of over 4,000 vulnerable young girls for years because the victims were white native children, the predators were Pakistani Muslims, and the authorities' top concern was not to appear racist and Islamophobic.

Frankly, Mr. Miliband makes the jihadis look almost sympathetic to me. At least, they believe in something deeply rooted in their maimed, distorted souls. Miliband is selling his soul at a discount, as a piece of useless luggage for a politician.

If the Labour has a high number of votes at these elections, I'll lose my hope in mankind. Or at least in the British nation. I am happy that I have only one British friend and he is now living outside the country.

Update: The audience which Miliband addressed was gender-segregated (hattip Jerry Coine, from whose blog I am copying the image below):

Not to mention that women are all covered.

At the elections, the Labour took more votes than at the previous elections but fewer than anticipated. Miliband acknowledged defeat and resigned.
