Attack on British Labour MP Stephen Timms: Criminal Behavior or Jihadi Violence
On May 14, this year (2010 AD), the former UK Treasury Minister and Labour MP Stephen Timms was stabbed twice in the abdomen by a Muslim woman Roshonara Choundhary in the East London Beckton Globe hospital where he was recovering from a surgical procedure. According to British police, the 21-year-old Asian woman is said to have a history of mental problems. Timms is said to be in good spirits and is set to recover from his wounds.
Scotland Yard said that, unemployed Roshonara Choudhary, 21, has now been charged with an attempted murder today over the stabbing of a former Labour minister and she will appear before Stratford Magistrates’ Court on Monday May 17. Roshonara Choudhary, wearing Muslim dress, allegedly lunged at Mr Timms and stabbed him twice before being restrained by a security guard. An aide to Mr Timms, Andrew Bazeley, 22, was hailed a hero after it was revealed that he wrestled the knife out of the hands of the assailant and bravely disarmed the woman, who had made a prior appointment to see Mr Timms at the hospital. Mr Bazeley was left covered in blood after he grabbed the knife and restrained her until a security guard took hold of the woman.
Sagal Ahmed,16, a girl student of the nearby Kingsford Community School, was in the community centre in Beckton Globe hospital, when the stabbing happened. She said, “We just heard this big commotion so we ran in to the room. The security guard had grabbed this Asian woman. She was wearing a long black outfit like what Muslims wear and an orangey headscarf. I think she was a Muslim. She wasn’t saying anything. They were just grabbing her to keep her still. She was really shaking. The Muslim woman seemed to have been shocked and distressed. It was the most shocking thing I’ve ever seen. ‘Then we saw the man [Mr Timms] getting put in another room. We saw the blood on his shirt but I couldn’t tell where he’d been stabbed. They were dragging him. He was conscious. He looked shocked and he was pale.”
Unmesh Desai, Mr Timms’ election aide and a local councillor, said: “Thank God Andrew had the presence of mind to get the knife out of the assailant. He was very brave to do what he did. He’s a young guy and a very slim guy but he had the presence of mind to take the knife away. It’s awful to think what could have happened had he been not brave.” According to the authorities of the hospital, Mr Timms, 54, had to undergo surgery last night and is still in hospital today but is recovering well. He was attacked during his regular Friday afternoon surgery in the hospital in his East London constituency.
According to a spokesman of the police, “This sheds light to an even larger criminal problem in England: stabbing crimes. It is as frequent as robberies.” While commenting on the incident, the Prime Minister David Cameron said “Wide campaigns are to be initiated to make the streets safe. We should treat criminals as criminals and police as defenders of the people.” He placed the blame of these criminal activities to bureaucratic messes and lack of parenting which is the root of such rebellious and dangerous behavior. Unfortunately, the Prime Minister avoided pointing finger at the increase of Muslim population and their jihadi activities, where the real problem lies.
Politicians, including the PM David Cameron, twisted the facts to claim that, it was nothing but an ordinary crime, that too committed by a lunatic woman. But many are convinced that it was an outburst of intense Islamic hatred towards the non-Muslim kafirs, or in other words, it was act of Islamic jihad. So, an observer , commenting on the incident, wrote, “The incident may seem an isolated incident violence by a crazy person but most will fail to recognize the amount of hatred Muslims possess towards the non-Muslims. …..Furthermore, using knife is a typical Islamic tradition. From slaughtering goats and camels on the day of yearly festival to killing Dutch film maker Theo Van Gough knife plays an important role.” (www.faithfreedom.org)
This Islamic jihad inspires each and every Muslim to kill as many infidel kafirs as he/she can. According to the creed of Islam, kafirs or infidels are worse than animals and Allah instructs the believers to wage jihad against these disbelievers. For a Muslim, launching a jihad or war against the kafirs, carries highest merit; higher even than a pilgrimmage to Mecca (hajj), not to speak of lower virtues like prayer (namaj) and fasting (roja). So the Koran says, “Fighting against the kafirs is beyond one’s personal likings and dislikings as Allah has commanded to fight the pagans and all those who ascribe partners (shirk) with Allah” (2.216). Perhaps the Muslim woman while stabbing Mr Timms, have cried “Allahu Akbar”, but the police and media have suppressed it.
Leftists’ Appeasement of Muslims:
It is well known that leftist political parties, around the world, are seen to be very sympathetic to the Muslims and are the forerunners in Muslim appeasement. In India, during the freedom struggle and in the wake of obtaining freedom from the British rule in 1947, the Communist Party of India (CPI) sided with the Muslims and supported creation of Pakistan. As a demonstration of its policy of Muslim appeasement, the Labour Government denied Dutch MP Geert Wilders entry into the UK, on February 12 last year and he was deported from the Heathrow airport.
Wilders, a brave fighter against the Islamisation of Europe, was scheduled to show his 17 minute film FITNA (that beautifully exposed the ugly face of Islam and Koran is the fountainhead of Islamic terrorism) to the House of Lords according to a prior invitation by the UK Independence Party’s Lord Pearson. But unfortunately he was prevented from crossing the boundary of the Heathrow airport and sent back to the Netherlands after a few hours of detention. Freedom loving people throughout the world were shocked by such insult to freedom of expression by the British Government that was so long regarded as the protector of individual freedom and freedom of press. There is no doubt that Mr Wilders is the solitary fighter fighting to save Europe from Islamisation today and the Labour Givernment did not hesitate to insult such a noble soul.
It is really unfortunate that the then British Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s spokesman, while explaining the issue to Wilders, said, “The Prime Minister fully supports the decision taken by Home Secretary Jacqui Smith.” But, in his reply, Mr wilders rightly said, “The government’s actions had proved that Gordon Brown is the biggest coward in Europe”. But the good news was that the screening of FITNA went ahead in the House of Lords as planned, despite Mr Wilder’s non-attendance.
The Sad decline of a Great Tradition:
The question naturally arises – Why the British Government, who’s Prime Minister Winston Churchill once fought the Nazis to protect freedom, has played such despicable role today and gagged the freedom of speech. In this regard, Stephen Brown, in his article “British Parliament Surrenders”, writes, “Islamic intimidation achieved a new high last week when it forced the British Parliament, one of Western civilization’s most venerable institutions, to quietly surrender its most basics of freedom.” (FrontPageMagazine.Com)
The inner story is, “A Muslim member of the House of Lords, Nazir Ahmed, showed the advanced state of Britain’s dhimmitude when he threatened to mobilize 10,000 fellow Muslims to block Dutch parliamentarian and filmmaker, Geert Wilders, from entering Westminster.” Finally, he uncovered his jihadi mindset through his reaction to the announcement of Wilders’ appearance in the House of Lords. Along with his threat to mobilize 10,000 demonstrators to block Wilders’ path, he also planned to sue the House of Lords member who had invited the Dutch politician.
This single incident is more than enough to speculate that, how the values of a civilized society and the concepts of individual freedom, freedom of speech, freedom of press etc. would be trampled, if Muslims succeed to conquer Great Britain.
It should also be mentioned that, Ahmed’s appointment as a member of the House of Lords was made possible when Prime Minister Tony Blair, in a major constitutional maneuver, “reformed” the House of Lords in 1999, abolishing all hereditary peerages.
Regarded as a “moderate” Muslim, Ahmed led the first British government-sponsored delegation on a Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca. To pretend himself as a moderate and liberal Muslim, he played excellent taqiyya (holy deception), by opposing international terrorism and veiling the Muslim women, opposing forced marriages in Britain, supporting the expulsion of violent Islamic radicals from Great Britain and so on and so forth. But the cat was out of the bag when he displayed his inherent Muslim mind by opposing Salman Rushdie’s receiving a knighthood.
The question still remains – Why Stephen Timms, an MP of the Labour Party, the party that has been so sympathetic to the Muslims and set up parallel Shariah Court for them, allowed Islamic dress-code to hospital staff, made halal food available in British eating houses and so on, fell a victim of a jihadi’s knife? We hope to discuss this in a follow-up article.
