Bolton bans Holocaust Memorial Day
Bolton Council has replaced Holocaust Memorial Day with Genocide Memorial Day, which is the stated policy of the Muslim Council of Britain. This is to ensure the inclusion of other human tragedies in the world, but in particular ‘the genocide of Palestinians by the Israelis’.
If one happens to be a Jew in Bolton, or a Christian, or kaffir generally, your views have not been sought, and your opinions are not required. Mohammedan pressure demanded a change, so a change was wrought. The council said the decision was made ‘in consultation with the town's Interfaith Council’, but Rabbi Joseph Lever, who has participated in the Bolton event in previous years, was not consulted on the decision, and he ‘mourns’ its eradication. Louis Rapaport, president of the Jewish Representative Council of Greater Manchester, has stated unequivocally that the Jewish community was not consulted. He said: ‘I can't help feeling the decision was influenced by Bolton's large Muslim community’.
The Dar al-Islam does not recognise any ‘interfaith council’, and neither does it recognise the Jewish holocaust. Its truth is immutable, and its history inviolable. Anything which does not accord with its politico-theology is purged: if necessary, gradually, but certainly most thoroughly. When a battle has been won in the Dar al-Harb, the territory belongs to the Dar al-Islam. There may be no reversion without Jihad, and Jihad will be waged until there is victory.
Bolton has just ended commemoration of Holocaust Memorial Day for ever.
Cranmer asks his communicants to forgive a little mischievous thought… But might it not be a lesser evil to support the European Commission’s proposals to outlaw holocaust denial, just to see how they handle the millions of holocaust-denying Mohammedans all over the EU?
Or might the Mohammedans seek and be awarded exemption from such a law…
