Thoughtcrime in Gateshead: Qur’an Burning reveals Police enforcing Shariah Law in the UK

An astonishing series of arrests has taken place in Gateshead, with two arrests taking place on 15 September and four more on 22 September. The BBC reports that six men have been arrested and released on bail for videoing themselves burning copies of the Qur’an on 11 September, with the subsequent video being placed on the internet. To the best of my knowledge, the books that they burned were their property, and like all books did not possess a central nervous system and therefore felt no pain. The burning Qur’ans were not used to set light to anything else, so what crime, in heaven’s name, are these men supposed to have committed?

The police arrested them “on suspicion of inciting racial hatred”. How many more times do the fools who initiated these arrests need to be told that Islam is not a race? Would they have been arrested if they had burned copies of the ‘Communist Manifesto’, ‘The Wealth of Nations’ or ‘Mein Kampf’? I think not, for like any clod even ‘plod’ can recognise that Communism, free-market economics and Nazism are not races.

What this case illustrates is the corrosive impact of the embedding of ‘diversity training’ (sic) in police forces and councils across the country, part of New Labour’s poisonous legacy which has been taken up with verve by the successor ConDem Government. The statement in the following excerpt from the BBC report possesses all the hallmarks of the ‘diversity’ groupthink and anti-democratic inclinations and practices of Common Purpose:
In a joint statement, Northumbria Police and Gateshead Council said: "The kind of behaviour displayed in this video is not representative of our community as a whole.
"Our community is one of mutual respect and we continue to work together with community leaders, residents and people of all faiths and beliefs to maintain good community relations."
While the police are busying themselves prosecuting citizens for exercising their right of free expression, cases of burglary and violent crime go unsolved and people’s lives are made hell by anti-social elements. The police in the UK have been corrupted by political interference and can no longer be considered an agency that seeks to protect the public. It has been transformed into an agent of political repression, monitoring and prosecuting instances of ‘wrong’ thinking. We no longer live in a free society. We can but hope that if this case is taken to court it is thrown out by the jury. Here is the video:


  1. If we are Policed by consent then surely we can remove our consent.
    Do not co-operate with the Police in any way, shape or form.
    We may have to take our country back by violent means, and I for one would not report, if seen, another Winston Silcot type attack on the enemy within.

  2. I understand your frustration but I couldn't ignore or advocate violence of any kind. Unfortunately the police are just doing their job under difficult circumstances and the real problem lies with the law makers. However, I fear you could be right that violence may be inevitable. This series of arrests is utterly ridiculous and is simply to put 'us' in our place. Cygnus.

  3. If they had burned a Bible would they have been arrested? How much time are they facing?

  4. We are where we are today has been planned in detail for generations.
    The link below shows why it is so and offers some indications as to what would need to be done to halt and reverse this.

    And How to Get It Back

  5. If they're charged they face a maximum of 7 years jail time. The sick thing is that the media are trying to justify the arrests by saying that their actions endanger the lives of British soldiers in Afghanistan. Cygnus.

  6. Kuffar, I think that Cygnus is right: the lower echelons of the police are just doing what their political and politicised masters instruct them to in this case. Sure, some of them will have had their heads turned by the ‘diversity’ delusion, but I can’t imagine that most ordinary coppers have fallen for this nonsense. Cygnus is correct in noting that these arrests have been made in an attempt to make examples of these men with a view to cowing the rest of us. It’s a very ugly tactic indeed. I hope that there isn’t deep civil unrest in the future, but if multiculturalist policies coupled with mass immigration are not thrown into firm reverse, I think that in a few years’ time we’re looking at an extremely unpleasant reality for our country.

    Chris, as Cygnus says, the six could receive a hefty prison sentence if they’re found guilty, but unless the jury is rigged they should walk free as there is no legitimate basis for a prosecution. If they burned a Bible nothing would happen.

    Defender, thanks for the link to Gabb’s book. It’s well worth reading and it’s great that Gabb has made it freely available in pdf format. If readers aren’t acquainted with it, I’d recommend that they download and read it, for Gabb’s analysis is interesting and contains many positive recommendations. As with any position, I don’t concur with all that Gabb has to say, but his strong case for a libertarian patriotism is an appealing one that deserves attention.

  7. Time is already short, we cannot depend on the govt for anything. We can argue the toss all year long and still not come to a conclusion as to how to bloody well stop this train to destruction.
    Crossing all the "ts" and dottint the "i's" is fine except when it no longer important.
    At 60 years old I have never seen such a widespread set of desasters facing the world, population, energy, unemployment, the EU, the NWO, the muslim world wide strategy,fear and a destroyed financial system. Its the perfect storm for chaos and fear.
    It is clear to me at least, that serious fighting will break out in the very near future, months, not years. Once it starts, it will not stop until it has burned itself out.
    There is only submit or prevail, take your pick.

  8. Defender, thanks for the link to the CBN report. There are a couple of interviews in there that I’ve not seen before. I've been keeping an eye on developments in France, and it is striking how close are the parallels between the anti-Islamisation movement there and here insofar as the Left have an equivalent of UAF – MRAP (Mouvement contre le racisme et pour l'amitié entre les peoples, see – which stigmatises opponents of this process as being ‘far-right’, ‘racist’ and ‘fascist’. However, the social composition of the anti-Islamisation movements on either side of the Channel differs considerably, with that in the UK in the guise of the EDL being predominantly working class (although SIOE and One Law for All are mainly middle class but numerically insignificant in comparison), whereas the French movement with its aperos seems to be a mainly middle class affair drawing upon a diverse range of patriotic and secular groups.

    If we should someday face the grim reality of mass violence upon our streets then you are correct to assume that the opposing sides would rapidly polarise and consolidate, with the UK degenerating into a larger and bloodier version of Bosnia-Herzegovina in the 1990s. We are indeed facing a foreboding future, and our politicians (who are but the local branch of a nascent globalist oligarchy) continue to pursue policies that will bring ruin to us for many generations to come if they are not thrown into firm reverse very soon. Gabb is correct in stating that if a patriotic government were ever to gain a parliamentary majority it would have to immediately set about destroying the powerful vested interests of the state through abolishing much of the state apparatus and the BBC. Gabb’s recommendations for neutering the potency of our political and cultural oligarchy are the essential preconditions for the restoration of genuine liberty in the UK.
