I always say that America to Britain is like Conservative Judaism to Reformed Judaism. Both are watered down versions of something that in its purer form is good. And one is just ten years behind the other in becoming even more watered down and farther from the real thing.
America is only a decade or two behind Britain in the categories of Muslim immigration, and–even sadder–giving in to Muslim intolerance.
Pander Bears: British Policewomen In Their New Islamo-Pander Gear
In a decade or two, or perhaps a few decades more, our policewomen in several localities will be just like these policewomen in Britain who have a new article of clothing added to their uniform. Heck, our Homeland Security agents are already required to go through training instructing them not to enter a home where only a woman is present and to remove their shoes. This ain’t far behind.
The West and its law enforcement authorities have to decide whether they are running an etiquette shop or actual law enforcement. They can’t have both. Sadly, they’ve indeed decided, there . . . and here.
Avon and Somerset Constabulary has begun to equip its female officers with a uniform issue hijab to wear when they enter a mosque.
The £13 headscarves are embroidered with the West Country force’s name and logo, and come in two colours — black for police officers and blue for community support officers. A spokeswoman insisted that they were not intended purely to cater for Muslim cultural sensibilities but were multi-faith.
Sure, they are.
“They are designed to be used in any place of worship and can be used to cover the head or the shoulders. For example, plain clothes officers could use them to cover their shoulders in a Catholic Church, or they can be used to cover the head in synagogues,” she said.
Yeah, any place of worship that’s a mosque. Puh-leeze. Orthodox Jews and Catholics don’t insist that women who are not of their faith cover their hair. It’s simply a lie to claim otherwise and invoke other religions in what is clearly Islamo-pander gear.
The scarves were however developed in a joint project with the Aklima Initiative, which focuses on working Muslim women, and the Mosque Initiative – both Islamic groups.
Yeah, sounds Jewish and Catholic to me.
Jackie Roberts, Assistant Chief Constable for Avon and Somerset, modelled the black headcovering for reporters yesterday, arranging its folds with the help of PCSO Nora Ndiaye, who modelled the blue version. They are among 15 women officers to have received the head coverings so far.
New phrase: Anti-supermodels.
Ms Roberts said that the scarves were intended to respect the cultural and religious practices of local communities.
Oy, make it stop. Enough fertilizer here to grow Central Park. PUH-LEEZE. This is being done to pander to Islam and Islam alone, period.
“This is a very positive addition to the Avon and Somerset uniform and one which I’m sure will be a welcome item for many of our officers,” she said.
Positive? Yeah, if you’re name is Mohammed and you want to assert Islamic supremacy. And–shocker!–Mohammed’s buds just love it.
Rashad Azami, imam and director of the Bath Islamic Society, said he was pleased with the move. ”This will go a long way in encouraging a trustful relationship between the police and the Muslim community,” he said.
Yeah, a long way in showing Muslims who the cowards are and who the puppetmasters (hint: they eat shawarmeh) are.
“The Avon and Somerset Constabulary has been working closely with the Muslim community in the area on many levels for the last few years. We have found their co-operation very helpful and hope this step will further strengthen the mutual relationship.”
But, wait, I thought the police said this was a “multi-cultural” thing for synagogues and Catholic churches?
It is not the force’s first foray into the minefield of cultural sensibilities. In 2006 the Chief Constable of Avon and Somerset had to apologise after it emerged that the force had used positive discrimination to try to increase the number of female and ethnic minority officers, randomly excluding 186 white male applicants during a recruitment drive on the grounds that they were already over-represented.
Hey, it sounds just like the New Haven Fire Department. I guess America isn’t a decade or two behind Britain. We’re right there.
