    You more or less make my point about the conspiracy against Corbyn. He is subject to the same abuse as Johnson, albeit with less justification.Its a right wing led smear.

    Now you’re just being silly. There is no conspiracy theory against Corbyn, he’s an antisemite and a terrorist supporter and always has been.

    Now, how about telling us which race BoJo has been racist against?
    Why don’t you back up your crap for once??
    Lol.

    Not Islamic, banned for pilgrims to Mecca as well as being banned in several muslim majority countries. Wake up people!


    Senior British Imam backs Boris Johnson in burqa row and says the covering should be banned because it is a 'hideous tribal ninja-like garment that oppresses women'

    • Imam Taj Hargey of the Oxford Islamic Congregation defended Boris Johnson
    • He said the UK has been tricked into thinking the burqa is Islamic but it is not
    • Tory party has launched a formal investigation into Mr Johnson's comments

    A senior British Imam today backed Boris Johnson in the burqa row and said the oppressive face coverings should be banned.

    Imam Taj Hargey, from the Oxford Islamic Congregation said the Tory MP has nothing to apologise for and 'did not go far enough' in his remarks...

    Mr Hargey warned that the burqa has become trendy among more militants Islamists who peddle views which can be a gateway for religious extremism.

    And he urged the UK to follow in the footsteps of other European countries like France and Denmark and ban the burqa.

    Writing in The Times, he said: 'Boris Johnson should not apologise for telling the truth.'

    He said the ex minister had reminded the country that the face mask 'has no Koranic legitimacy' but is 'a nefarious component of a trendy gateway theology for religious extremism and militant Islam'.

    He added: 'The burqa and niqab are hideous tribal ninja-like garments that are pre-Islamic, non-Koranic and therefore un-Muslim.

    'Although this deliberate identity-concealing contraption is banned at the Kaaba in Mecca it is permitted in Britain, thus precipitating security risks, accelerating vitamin D deficiency, endorsing gender-inequality and inhibiting community cohesion.'

    He said that some backward-looking elements in the Muslim community have managed to persuade may in British society that it is in the Islamic faith for women to cover their faces.

    But he said this must be challenged in Britain and that the state should step in to stop it.

    He said: 'Johnson did not go far enough. If Britain is to become a fully integrated society then it is incumbent that cultural practices, personal preferences and communal customs that aggravate social division should be firmly resisted.

    'For this reason Britain must emulate France, Belgium, Austria, Bulgaria and Denmark in banning the burqa.' ....

    Tory peer accuses Boris Johnson of making 'hate crime more likely'

    One of the Conservative party’s most high-profile Muslims has accused Boris Johnson of making “hate crime more likely” with an indefensible, “dog-whistle” reference to fully veiled Muslim women.

    Sayeeda Warsi, writing in the Guardian on Wednesday, said the former foreign secretary had used rightwing, “alt-right” language in criticising the appearance of the burqa, which contributes to a view that “Muslim women are fair game”.

    “As a feminist, what really disgusts me in this whole episode is that Muslim women are simply political fodder, their lives a convenient battleground on which to stake out a leadership bid,” Lady Warsi wrote.

    Well here are the thoughts of a Muslim WOMAN.

    Have you really missed the plethora or articles from muslim women against the oppression and subjugation of the burqa, and the muslim women’s groups formed on the basis of their opposition to this dehumanising black sack along with their opposition to the sharia law they are subjected to?

    Does Warsi, because of her peerage, trump the views of these muslim women? I thought you said those in the House of Lords should just stfu and also be disbanded?

    And do you think what she says trumps what an Imam - who’s put his neck on the block for telling the truth about the burqa not even being a religious requirement and it being banned from use by pilgrims on haj?

    You could of course check whether this is true or not, instead you offer us the views of a disgruntled Baroness?

    And Wow. You sure you really want to use Warsi as your poster girl for this?

    Warsi with her links to extremists and her vitriolic hatred for a fellow female muslim (who’s only crime was to get the job Warsi wanted) for successfully organising anti Isis marches?

    And the real dog whistle is right there in your post - from the mouth of Warsi calling forth yet more invariably completely unsubstantiated tales of burqa yanking. You know the police have begun prosecuting the liars now for wasting police time? No? Another thing you don’t know or understand about this issue???

    Surely you also remember that she referred to Boris’s jokes as a ‘crime’? Only in sharia shite holes would such a comment represent a CRIME at the moment, as explained by Cressida Dick, but maybe Warsi is unaware of that fact?

    Well, since you seem to be so very very ignorant (as usual) about of all of this, I’m going to educate you later when I return.
    In the meantime, perhaps you should do some of your own research for a change and tell us how enamoured you are of Warsi afterwards, ok??? Lol.

    You just hate muslims so johnson is ok with you.

    You have zero credibility in this debate.

    Here is the equality commisions view.

    Equality watchdog attacks Boris Johnson's 'inflammatory' remarks

    “Boris Johnson’s use of language in this instance, which risks dehumanising and vilifying Muslim women, is inflammatory and divisive. Political figures should lead by example, conducting debates in a responsible manner, and language such as this can inhibit legitimate dialogue.”

    Dominic Grieve
    Dominic Grieve: I will leave party if Boris Johnson becomes leader

    A former Conservative minister has said he would leave the party if Boris Johnson were elected leader, as recriminations mounted over the former foreign secretary’s description of Muslim women in burqas.

    Why do you try and defend this ? You are so transparent.

    Boris has said he supports the right of women to wear the bin bag and he made a couple of jokes about how ridiculous it looks. Why wouldn’t I defend his right to express his opinion?

    We aren’t living in a sharia state yet, Tammy, although you clearly desire that as you want to prevent people from even criticising Islam’s garments of oppression.

    What do you think of what Emily Thornbury had to say about the burqa a few years ago?

    Labour frontbencher Emily Thornberry said she would not want a woman wearing a burqa to look after her young daughter



    She goes on to say it’s ok for masked muslim women to work in ‘back offices’. Lol.

    Stop being a twat and get over yourself, Tammy.

    The DEHUMANISING aspect of all this lies clearly in the burqa itself.

    Covering someone from head to foot in a black sack so they become a shapeless black blob who can’t be recognised is entirely DEHUMANISING and that is why muslim men like it so much.

    You know, Tammy, you really wouldn’t be out of place among the Taliban,
    Taliban Tammy - Yep - sounds about right.

    ^^^^^NOT DEHUMANISING TO TALIBAN TAMMY^^^^^^^

    Joking about them totally DEHUMANISING to Taliban Tammy.

    I think your agenda is clear, Tams.
