TRINITY Mirror/Reach-owned Birmingham Mail has been busy this Ramadan trying to subtly nudge opinion in favour of making Eid a public holiday. On the 13th June, it ran an effusive piece about how the streets of Birmingham ‘come alive’ with ‘street food, shopping and kindness’.
Altaf Kazi, 33, a charity worker from Perry Barr, gushed:
“The most enjoyable thing is getting the buzz and seeing something different in this city of ours. We should celebrate different communities bringing their own flavour to Birmingham.”
The very next day, yesterday, to mark the beginning of Eid al-Fitr it asked ‘Should Eid Be A Public Holiday’? It solemnly declared:
“Muslim scholars are not happy. They say Muslim-majority countries acknowledge Christian events as bank holidays and want western nations to do the same.”
Ramadan this year has been marked by a massive Fakestream media offensive to foist Ramadan and Eid on the entire population and they have been backed by the kind of bus-side propaganda seen below in many major cities:
Just Google Ramadan and you will immediately be presented with a plethora of links from national and local media either ‘explaining’ Ramadan or openly extolling its virtues. Meanwhile, across the country, England fans are banned and discouraged from flying English flags.
I don’t think you could get any clearer illustration of the cultural agenda of the establishment – Islam is openly encouraged to flourish and foisted on the entire population – whether they are Muslims or not – while any kind of expression of English or British culture is strangled at birth and openly repressed by the state.
