Dear Sir/Madam, 

Having read some of the tweets posted by West Midlands Police (@WMPolice) recently, I would be grateful if you could respond to the following questions as required under the Freedom of Information Act.

The people.

 

I have lived in Indonesia for 5 years. It is a segregated country with 26 different provinces (regions) that are occupied by different peoples with different religions and different beliefs going back thousands of years: the Javanese, the Batak (North Sumatra), the Minang (West Sumatra), the Malayu (South East Sumatra), and the Balinese (Bali). Each of these different peoples have distinct traditions and have constantly fought for superiority within Indonesia and in some regions,. Still today there are in- house disagreements.

 

AN OPEN LETTER TO EUROPEAN FEMINISTS

 

Dear feminist,

 

I write this as a last ditch attempt to reach you; to reach your common sense, and to reach any genuine concern at least some of you may have about the future of women’s rights in Europe. ‘Why only Europe?’ may well be your first question, and the answer is quite simply that we are threatened in a way we have not known in our lifetimes, and this threat is entirely preventable.

Where is the hashtag in solidarity for the Pakistani and Kashmiri children being raped here in the UK?

 

I used to be a feminist, but I gave it up so I could speak out for women’s rights. Even before the “intersectional”, “how many genders are there?” lunacy took over, feminism was filled to bursting with types who think men are misogynists who all secretly want to rape us (this despite the fact that men are among the greatest supporters of women’s rights) and a happily married mother is some kind of traitor. The kind of people, in other words, who nobody in their right mind could possibly get along with.

An investigation in to Muslim grooming gangs

Introduction

Is there a connection between CSE and Sharia Law?

NB: For anyone affected by CSE Fighting Exploitation is one organisation that may be able to help.

I learned the worth of a woman under Islam the day I sought a divorce in the Islamic Republic of Iran. I was worth less than a man, worth only half of a man. That day, somewhere in the United States, girls my age were making sure their clothes and hair were just right for a day in 7th grade (Year 9 in England). Not I. I stood before a judge in an Iranian courtroom as a married woman beaten brutally every day of my short “marriage” by my husband, a mentally unstable, older man to whom I had been sold for the financial profit of my family.

Tehmina Kazi, director of British Muslims for Secular Democracy and star opponent of the massive fundamentalist mega-mosque proposed for West Ham in east London, close to the Olympic Stadium future home of West Ham United, has been forced to withdraw as a witness at the huge Public Inquiry that starts at the ExCel Conference Centre in Docklands today.

Islamic sharia law represents a serious and growing threat to the safety and equality of women, and indeed children.  The evidence for this assertion can be seen in both Islamic doctrine, and in the practice of Islamic family legal throughout states governed by sharia law.  There are four main areas of sharia law that expressly discriminate against women in family law.  As with the laws of Britain, family law and criminal law frequently interact and when sharia criminal punishments are applied to matters involving marriage for example, women risk terrible and lethal punishments – including

Domestic abuse is about control and Sharia law has already gifted this ‘control’ to husbands.

The papers are full of stories about how ISIS is winning control in Iraq, Syria etc.  But we hear less about how the Islamist ideology is handing control to men here in Britain, and sharia law is placing victims of domestic abuse in vulnerable positions.  Under sharia law, a man can utter the words ‘Talaq; Talaq; Talaq’ - meaning divorce - and the marriage contract is cancelled.

Summary: 

This smearing nonsense has to stop.  I don’t like Islam and I have every right to feel that way.  As a woman who believes in free speech, it is entirely justified.  In order to preserve the rights and safety of women, and our right to speak our minds, I believe we must end immigration from Muslim countries.  Its not a conclusion I want to reach, but common sense tells me it’s unfortunately necessary.

I want to halt immigration from theocratic or tyrannical societies because I believe in freedom.  Freedom and totalitarianism, especially religious totalitarianism which gives itself the authority of the creator of the universe, cannot live side by side.  You must pick one.  I pick freedom, and I will fight to preserve it from all that threatens it.

This isn’t fascism.  This is commitment to liberty and democracy.  I will hold fast to this commitment and I will not cower down.  I will fight for our age-old liberties, and if I become leader, UKIP will be a party that fights for our age-old liberties.
