Galloway’s party, of course.
Yvonne Ridley, who became a Muslim after her kidnap by the Taleban in Afghanistan five years ago, has accused the police of being heavy-handed…
She told a meeting on Tuesday that Muslims should “boycott the police and refuse to co-operate with them in any way, shape or form.”
She said: “From today until this terrorisation of the Muslim community is stopped immediately, I believe all Muslims should withdraw their support,” she said.
“This goes from asking the community copper for directions to passing the time of day with a beat officer.
“We should enforce non-co-operation.”
Iran’s state news service has picked up the story. Respect has a statement about the recent terror raid up on its website that quotes Gorgeous George at length. It insists that they’re “all, across the communities, opposed to terrorism and have stood against it repeatedly,” and Ridley no doubt agrees. Read her op-ed about the Jordanians who denounced Zarqawi for launching terror attacks against them. Does that sound like someone who’s soft on terrorism?
Update: Muslim groups are organizing a protest in London for this weekend.
