July 2001: TALIBAN LINK TO OLDHAM RIOTS

A leading expert on Islam has discovered that Muslim clerics in Oldham have given platforms to Taliban politicians and Kashmiri guerrillas. Speaking on Premier Christian Radio, Anthony McRoy, a lecturer in Islamic studies, said that the media depiction of events in Oldham as 'race riots' was too simplistic.

In fact the riots were instigated by Muslim youths who attacked the person and premises of whites, Carribeans and Hindus. In one case, the West Indian Centre in Oldham was fire-bombed by Muslims. Local Imans had recently brought in representatives of the Taliban regime of Afghanistan and Kashmiri Guerrillas to speak in mosques in the town. This would only encourage the criminal element of Muslim youth.

Asked by John Pantry, the presenter on Premier, to comment on the media perception that the British National Party had incited the riots, Mr McRoy said that this was not the impression he had gained after speaking to a wide range of people in Oldham. The BNP had no presence in the town before trouble began to brew two years ago. (NWN: Yes we did but we were still building)

They had not incited but had certainly exploited the events and were now the only people to offer any kind of response - a form of segregation which Mr McRoy did not support - to what had become an intractable situation. Again pressed by Mr Pantry to support the idea that with mutual respect, different cultures could co-exist, Mr McRoy declined, saying that in his opinion, the level of respect from the Muslims for cultures different from their own was very limited.

this is still being hushed up. what else they dont tell you is that coaches from bradford were stopped from comming joining in. also, journalists from national papers and news networks were ferrying asains to the pubs the white football lads were in to provoke trouble. all this was obtained from scanners listening to police frequencies. the riots sound a bit different than the official version when you know the truth of what occured .

I saw the Oldham riot GMP video.

Griffin backed down when the Police attacked him over this video.

This video was given by sympathetic Police in Oldham.

He is working for the Government.

I saw pakis holding guns on that Police video.

The Police should have taken those young pakis down.

WE know there are more copies of that GMP video.

Please get it onto the internet.
