Last month a conference of Muslim leaders in Istanbul released a declaration condemning any interference with traffic into Gaza:
"The closure of the crossings, or the prevention of the entry of weapons through them, should be regarded as high treason in the Islamic Nation, and clear support for the Zionist enemy."This was signed by a number of â€?Britishâ€? Muslims, including Dr Daud Abdullah, deputy director-general of the Muslim Council of Britain.
...according to the Istanbul declaration, there is an obligation for "the Islamic Nation to regard the sending of foreign warships into Muslim waters, claiming to control the borders and prevent the smuggling of arms to Gaza, as a declaration of war, a new occupation, sinful aggression, and a clear violation of the sovereignty of the Nation". It continues: "This must be rejected and fought by all means and ways."

Dr Abdullah is a particular pet of the Labour government.
In January, he briefed the home secretary, Jacqui Smith, and communities secretary Hazel Blears on the situation in Gaza and its likely impact on social cohesion in the UK.(The British Authorities have been funding alleged â€?moderatesâ€? in the U.K. Islamic community, a policy denounced in a new report coincidently published this weekend:

I wonder in any "American" Muslims were present?

Itâ€™s so unfair that we donâ€™t have more of this sort of thing here on a continuous basis, so please support Progress By Pesach. Because the Muslims arenâ€™t strangersâ€¦theyâ€™re our beloved cousins. Itâ€™s family unification!Also donâ€™t miss the Kvetcherâ€™s witty post Breaking â€?Perfidy By Pesachâ€? News about a news release from
Jewish Community Action, a far-Left organization that considers white people racist and seeks their replacement by people of color (OH, YES THEY DO!)The Kvetcherâ€™s assessment:
What a tremendous victory for Progress By Pesach! They actually convinced the Hispanics to demand more Hispanics, of all things. I canâ€™t believe it. I have to sit down in awe of the outreach executed and the alliances secured by these extremely talented advocates.This Progress by Pesach campaign is not wise.
