British Muslims have been prevented from travelling to the US, without explanation or compensation. The UK cannot allow such discrimination to continue.
It’s the only way to teach them, obviously, send in the Marines again. Burn the place to the ground again.
Hmm, what’s that? Some other countries maintain that they should be allowed to deice, as they themselves wish, who is allowed to enter their country? But that’s entirely unacceptable!
War it is then, eh?
Global warming means nobody will need to be deiced in the future.
Perhaps we should be asking ourselves, if the Americans don’t want them, why do we?
I suspect there’s more to this story than the BBC etc have bothered to uncover. One of the brothers said on, I think, Ian Dale’s show on LBC that his brother had been arrested and detained in Israel “for being a bearded man”. Two clues in there, no?
Thankfully Donald Trump doesn’t run Homelamd Security so there’ll be a reason. It may be an inadequate one but the media is remarkably incurious and may end up being rather embarrassed as a result!
Well played, sir.
Isn’t auto-correct grand?
This is the way it works:
It is completely racist to single out a Muslim this way unless he is physically in possession of a bomb/gun/machete.
If a Muslim kills people and the security services had suspicions then suddenly OMG!!! WHY DIDNT THEY DO SOMETHING?
Rinse and repeat.
They could always go to Disney Land Paris
1. Two brothers and nine children. All called Mahmood. On a “family” trip without their wives/mothers – Check!
2. One brother detained in Israel for eight days before being expelled from the country – Check!
3. Facebook page containing extremist material linked to their address – Check!
4. Living in Waltham Forest not far from Anjem Choudary – Check!
Looks like Homeland Security are perfectly justified in preventing these people from flying to the US. Is there anyone here who would feel at ease being on the same flight as this bunch?
I an sickened and disgusted by this opinion piece. I mean the US authorities have stopped a family from going on holiday to spend time in Disneyland.
I mean, what possible threat could such people be to anyone? The stupid idiots actually paid money to go to Disneyland! Such people are too stupid to be terrorists.
And after two weeks in Disneyland, their brains would become even more addled.
It is the Muslims who want to attend top American Universities to study Physics and Chemistry that we need to worry about. Not the braindead morons who think Disneyland is the way to have a good holiday.
I don’t know any more than anyone else, but one of the most common reasons for bearded muslim foreigners to get arrested in and deported from Israel is an intent or attempt to do “charity” work in the west bank. Being Cat Stevens is another.
Faced with no holiday, no explanation and no compensation, it is little wonder that festive cheer is in short supply and anger is growing.
Given that they are Muslims, festive cheer is expected to be in short supply.
‘Two brothers and nine children. All called Mahmood. On a “family” trip without their wives/mothers – Check!’
Yes that is more than just odd.
How many non-Muslims have been deported from/denied entry to Saudi Arabia over the years for whatever reasons they desire? How many Guardian sob story pieces have there been about them?
Those ESTA forms can be a pain to fill out. One little mistake…
You can get an ESTA online and pay for it with a credit card. As long as you can type your name and your passport number without error and you’re not on the no-fly list you’ll be fine. After you’ve applied, wait a bit and then go back on the website to make sure it’s registered properly. Last time I flew via the states I did it a month in advance. If it wasn’t just a paperwork screwup then this bunch obviously set off a few alarm bells. If they are innocent then that’s bad luck for them, but perhaps if their coreligionists had not been behaving like wild animals since about 630AD we’d be more inclined to cut them some slack.
Hah. Try being registered with an ESTA (because of US in-laws) and then on the same passport, you subsequently arrive on a NATO Travel Order.
The US Immigration Service don’t do “but it’s complicated” very well.
If they are innocent then that’s bad luck for them, but perhaps if their coreligionists had not been behaving like wild animals since about 630AD we’d be more inclined to cut them some slack.
Quite. I expect the majority of the country – both countries – couldn’t give a flying fuck about yet another Muslim sob-story the press is pushing for all it’s worth. A lot of Yanks are still pissed off at the clock-boy farce.
After recent event Homeland Insecurity has to show they are doing something. Although there may be a valid reason why they were denied entry the real goal is to show statistics claiming x number of terrorists were prevented from entering the country, especially after what happened in CA.
5. Another brother who lives in the US prayed at the same mosque as US-born Syed Farook, who along with his Pakistani-born wife Tashfeen Malik, killed 14 people in San Bernardino earlier this month. – Check!
You’re only allowed to exclude white folks. It’s very simple.
I’m willing to give up some freedoms to prevent Cat Stevens from touring.
Didn’t Cat Stevens sing:
We can’t let them in, we can’t let them in, we’ve got to keep them out?
Theophrastus – “Is there anyone here who would feel at ease being on the same flight as this bunch?”
To paraphrase Julia, is there anyone here who feels at ease sharing the same country as this bunch?
Because we are looking at our future rulers. The future belongs to those that turn up. I bet these brothers have more children than half the people who post here. Put together.
Indeed. Is it too late to introduce sterilisation for all non-white newcomers?
If a Non-Muslim is caught by the authorities in the Holy Cities of Makkah and Madina, he will be presented in front of Judge who will decide his punishment. Punishment will depend upon the scenario in which he is caught. If he is caught planning to do anything to defame Islam or any other activity against Islam, he may be sentenced to death. If he is just found doing something else with not a malicious intention, he can be left. But in any case, whenever a Non-Muslim is caught from Makkah or Madina, he will be deported with lifetime ban. Deportation and lifetime ban is the minimum penalty for such Non-Muslim who enters to Makkah and Madina.”
Never a peep about this from the lefties.
