There is NO distinction between the First Amendment
and the Second.
One enforces, and reinforces the other. Either direction.
From Eye on the World:
(Birmingham) Salma Yaqoob, is the Islamic head of the so called Respect party which in a nutshell promotes itself as an anti-war and pro Islamic sharia party in the UK. But then what would you expect from a party which was founded by George (I have no problem bending over for Saddam) Galloway. Anyway as Salma was voted in by the local british hating Islamic population of the ward she represents she found herself at a council meeting where local lad Lance Corporal Matt Croucher was invited in honour of receiving the George Cross (the second highest award in the UK) for his unselfish act of saving the lives of all his team mates by throwing himself onto a grenade whilst serving in Afghanistan.
However during the standing ovation two councillors not only refused to applaud him, they refused to stand and seeing are both Islamic in faith and belong to Respect it does make you wonder if Muslims in the UK have any loyalty to the country other than claiming as many benefits as possible.
The irony here is while Muslims like Yaqoob play the Muslims are victims of western imperialism card time and time again. The soldiers in Afghanistan are there not to oppress Muslims but to defend them from from their fellow religious cohorts who simply want to rule over them by using Islam as their excuse.
Well rightly vilified by the country for refusing to respect a part time soldier who was ready to give his life in which to save others. The equally traitorous bBC have allowed this odious woman to air her side of the story and that actually she is the victim out of all of this. You'd think that people like Yaqoob and her ilk who don't like what they see in the Uk would pack their bags and bugger off to a good old Islamic country in which to strut their stuff. But for some reason they don't. I wonder why?
