Step back a moment and consider the larger picture. Twenty-two people are dead in Manchester and seven in London at the hands of Islamic jihadists. Meanwhile, the supposedly “anti-extremism” Quilliam Foundation claims that “the threat from far-right groups is as severe as the jihadist threat.”
How many are dead in shattered, staggering, dhimmi Britain as a result of “far-right” attacks? Why, none. None at all. Are “far-right” leaders in Britain calling for the destruction of the British state and its replacement with an authoritarian system that denies equality of rights to women and others? Why, no. No. they aren’t. What we really have, in terms of the moral equivalence that the cynical and duplicitous Quilliam is peddling, is this: twenty-nine dead on the one hand, and some bacon at a mosque on the other.
Horror of horrors! Bacon at a mosque! Call the police! The police were duly called. But consider this: if the Muslims in Britain really want to make sure that no more bacon is left at mosques, they can accomplish that very easily, by working against jihadis in their own community, and doing everything they can to make sure that no more jihad attacks happen, instead of constantly whining and playing the victim, and claiming that counterterror efforts are unjustly singling them out. If Muslims in the UK stood up resolutely against jihad terror, acknowledged its roots in Islamic texts and teachings, and honestly worked to root out that understanding of Islam from its community and to cooperate energetically with police against jihadis, no more non-Muslims would be so frustrated by the Muslim community’s duplicity and the government’s supine reaction to terror, and they would no longer do rude things like leave bacon at mosques.
But in the final analysis, that’s all it is: a rude act. And yet police are out in force. Imagine if these police officers were instead diverted to other duties, such as trying to stop the next jihad attack. Then maybe no more blood would be spilled, and no more bacon would be deployed.
Police are increasing patrols at two mosques in Cambridge after strips of bacon were today (June 8) left on the car windscreens to insult fasting Muslims.
Four vehicles were targeted in the hate crime at about 12.30am at the Omar Faruque Mosque in Kirkwood Road, King’s Hedges as Muslims celebrate Ramadan.
Officers will also patrol around the mosque in Mawson Road, off Mill Road, following the incident.
The attack on worshippers came after the terrorist incidents in London and Manchester, which have triggered an increase in hate crimes across the country.
In London there has been a five-fold increase in hate crimes following the London Bridge Terror attack, according to the city’s Mayor Sadiq Khan.
A Cambridgeshire police spokeswoman said: “We are aware of this incident and an investigation is underway. We will be carrying out extra patrols in the area of both Cambridge mosques.
“We were called to a prejudice incident in Kirkwood Road, Cambridge, at around 12.30am this morning.”
TellMAMA, which monitors anti-Muslim attacks, said: “We have received information that worshippers at the Omar Faruque mosque in Kirkwood Road, Cambridge, came out from prayers to find strips of ham on the windscreens of four vehicles.
“Worshippers who had fasted were confronted with the anti-social and anti-Muslim actions.
“We are increasingly receiving reports of such activities where pork products are being used to abuse fellow citizens who happen to be Muslim.
“Clearly in the minds of perpetrators, they believe that pork products are an insult to Muslims.”
The monitoring group had a similar report from Cambridge in April when bacon was left on the handle of a Muslim man’s car who was returning from Parkside swimming pools with his 6-year-old niece when he discovered the pork product.
