Union Jack Replaced by Prayer Mat

Just as my disposition was improving, I came across this gem. I see also the Italian authorities in Naples have seen fit to ban Imams from entering jails to conduct religious rites - they are feared to be fomenting islamist fundamentalism and recruiting Al Qaeda. . Not only have the Euro idiots tied themselves to a potentially unstable energy supplier but now the Poms are seriously entertaining suggestions that the Union Jack should be dispensed with as it 'gives offence to Muslims.'
Chris Doyle, director of the Council for the Advancement of Arab-British Understanding, said Tuesday the red cross was an insensitive reminder of the Crusades.

"A lot of Muslims and Arabs view the Crusades as a bloody episode in our history," he told CNN. "They see those campaigns as Christendom launching a brutal holy war against Islam.

"Muslim or Arab prisoners could take umbrage if staff wore a red cross badge. It's also got associations with the far-right. Prison officers should be seen to be neutral."

Doyle added that it was now time for England to find a new flag and a patron saint who is "not associated with our bloody past and one we can all identify with."
One day the stupid Poms will wake up and find a young girl stoned to death on the streets of Leeds. They'll shake their heads in disbelief and say - 'How could it have ever happen here? This is England.'

Politcal correctness is disgusting. Even when people find a girl stoned to death in the streets, will that be enough to make them see what they call "accommodation" is really destructive pandering?

Good point Murray.
I am not sure of young girls being stoned to death like in Denmark, but yes, people are wondering how Britain, Leeds especially, could foster young people who like to blow up buses and the London underground.
I wonder what sights will await me on my next trip 'home.' I am from Wetherby, a small town 20kms from Leeds.
Should I visit all those gleaming new shops amid the bustling 'financial capital of the north', as Leeds styles itself nowadays, I will pass through some of the grotty suburbs where the muslims live.
While the economic renaissance of this once-depressed manufacturing city continues, that its newfound prosperity has yet to reach certain suburbs is still no excuse for muslim intolerance, or for wet liberals pandering to them.

Heh - I have seen a new 'multicultural' Union Jack which has black stripes added to it. Silly silly silly.

I'll continue to wear the red cross as a jacket patch and if Mr. Doyle and the camel-humping primitives he's an apologist for don't like it they can go kiss my ass.
The cross symbolises the liberation of the West from the muslim hordes and much else besides and I'll be damned if some bureaucratic dhimmi and his festering islamic masters are going to prevent the display of it.
Up yours, Doyle.

It is surely getting worse here in England. Everybody is bending over everybody in order to offend nobody. I thought that if you moved to the UK you took it upon yourself to become a member of a normal functioning society - not to enforce your beliefs on the population.

It's time for some remakes of Alf Garnett. Was it 'Til Death Us Do Part'? Perhaps his modern day might be daughter living in sin with a head hacker sympathiser. Can anyone seriously see the BBC being game. Once were broadcasters.

The article referrers to the English flag, not the Union Jack. The English flag is a red cross on a plain white background. The Union Jack is the same as the Union flag i.e. the red white and blue British flag; it's the Union Jack when flown at sea and the Union flag normally.

Well, you are right. But who cares? The cross of St George is part of the Union Jack so they'll want that tossed out as well.
