Another Islamophobe Speaks

Darn those pesky elected representatives of the British people, always sticking their nose into business that has nothing to do with them!

A minister has been accused of "reckless intervention" after he said a Muslim teaching assistant suspended for wearing a full veil should be sacked.

Phil Woolas told the Sunday Mirror that Aishah Azmi, 23, had "put herself in a position where she can't do her job".

And just who does this guy think he is?

The Muslim Council of Britain said Mr Woolas, whose brief covers race relations, should not have interfered.

Well, of course- an infidel having the gall to speak out about Muslim matters! How dare he? In actual fact, Woolas' brief is for race and faith. Who does he think he is, commenting on a Muslim matter?

Labour peer Lord Ahmed said: "It's unprecedented - in fact quite extraordinary - that a minister can be calling for a sacking of a school classroom assistant."

Of course, why on earth should a local politician express an opinion on a matter like this which is being discussed in the national press? Here's what he had the nerve to say- brace yourself, it's quite shocking-

"The head teacher says that she's not able to do her job...and if the head teacher says that that's the action that needs to be taken, then so be it."

I know, I know- a shocking and no doubt inflammatory statement.

He [Lord Ahmed] added that the minister should be concentrating on "discrimination in the Muslim community" rather than attacking it.

In other words, be a good dhimmi and keep your mouth shut.
