BBC’s Grave Error: Asghar Bukhari

Only hours after two Nigerian Islamists ambushed and hacked a serving British soldier to death in the streets of Woolwich as he was walking back to the Royal Artillery Barracks yesterday, the BBC made a catastrophic error by inviting on its World News channel one of Britain’s worst Islamist terrorist sympathisers – Asghar Bukhari of the vile MPAC(UK), in the guise of a so-called “expert on extremism”.

Let’s remind ourselves of who Bukhari really is:

In 2006, Bukhari had sent David Irving a £60 cheque and a letter headed with a quote from John Locke, “All that is needed for evil to triumph is for good people to stand idle”. This was reported in UK paper The Observer as David Irving had made statements in the past supporting Holocaust Denial. Bukhari said that he felt that Irving was, “being smeared for nothing more than being anti-Zionist” and that the “pro-Israeli lobby often accuse people of anti-Semitism. He said he felt that Holocaust denial was wrong, and that he did not know that Irving was a Holocaust denier when he donated money to him.

Bukhari then scrabbled around for support but failed miserably to find any.

Now a pariah, Bukhari published an audiocast where he stated: “David Irving claimed he was not anti-Semitic and was in fact being attacked by the powerful pro-Israeli lobby; in short, being smeared … I believed him, it’s as simple as that … I would not have supported anyone who is anti-Semitic.”

No-one listened. Bukhari had shown his true colours.

Then, during the Gaza War, Bukhari was busted again when he wrote in a Facebook thread:

“Muslims who fight against the occupation of their lands are ‘Mujahadeen’ and are blessed by Allah. And any Muslim who fights and dies against Israel and dies is a martyr and will be granted paradise … There is no greater oppressor on this earth than the Zionists, who murder little children for sport.”

The British Centre for Social Cohesion passed his comments onto the UK police.

As a result, MPACUK responded by criticising the Centre for Social Cohesion for “wasting police time by reporting Asghar Bukhari for supposedly contravening the new law banning ‘glorification of terrorism’. MPACUK – who actually care about stopping terrorism – expect our taxes to be spent trying to prevent anyone from blowing us up on tube trains (not dealing with politically-motivated malicious reports against media spokespeople from Muslim groups!)”

“It’s a depressing cycle of violence and it’s not going to end anytime soon”, was Bukhari’s pathetic justification for the Islamist hacking of a British soldier to death yesterday.

Confirming that most Muslim youths see themselves as being more loyal to Asian traditions and structures of authority than those which are British or European, Bukhari went on: “Muslim organizations [referred to by the interviewer as mainstream Muslim organizations] have failed to teach young people [young Muslim people] that there is another route for the grievance, the anger, the frustration that they feel about this government’s policies in the Muslim World.”

Then, announcing that more terrorist attacks would follow, Bukhari declared: “Young people are going to take to what they see on the television, they’re going to take to these barbaric attacks!” – Describing their grievances as “justifiable” and calling on the British Government to “admit this direct link” between “this radicalization that’s happening” and “their foreign policy.”

The attack comes as multiple plots by Islamists to assassinate soldiers in the streets of Britain have already been foiled in recent years and on the same day as the attack, immigrant riots continued to rock Sweden for a third day, erupting in a car burning epidemic in centres such as Malmö and Stockholm.

Asghar Bukhari is not representative of Muslims. He is a representative of political Islam which has no place in British politics in the hothead, extremist form personified by Bukhari.

The BBC should be ashamed. When an Islamist extremist atrocity has just occurred on Britain’s streets, Brits at home and abroad do not expect to turn on their televisions and watch a scraggy imp, who is an anti-Semitic Islamist extremist himself, justifying the atrocity.

Whoever was responsible at the BBC for inviting this warped, little devil into their studios should be sacked.
