Chris Doyle, the director of the Council for the Advancement of Arab-British Understanding (CAABU) explains why the Saint George’s Cross insignia must not be seen in prisons. He adds that it is “time for England to find a new flag.” Perhaps one with a crescent, Chris?
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."
Openly anti-Israel, CAABU is the same organization that pressured Harrods and Selfridges to remove items made in the West Bank or the Golan Heights back in 2002.
The PC madness afflicting England doesn’t lack for non-obvious targets either: Even Piglet’s days are numbered:
The latest assault came in the benefits department at Dudley Council, West Midlands, where employees were told that they were no longer allowed to have any representations of pigs at their desks. Some had little porcine porcelain figurines. Others had toys or calendars of cute little pigs. One had a tissue box depicting Winnie the Pooh and Piglet. All of this had to go, not because of new some new anti-kitsch ordinance, but because Muslims might be offended — particularly now, what with Ramadan beginning. How could a pious Muslim in the Dudley Council, West Midlands benefits department redouble his efforts to conform his life to the will of Allah with all these…pigs staring him in the face? It was an insult!
CAIR would be so proud.
