Daily Mail: Linking Norway Terrorism Attacks to Islamic Extremist pasting Sharia stickers

Dear Friend,
When I looked up I found Daily Mail showing the news item you gave. These Sharia nuts would be soon behind bars  if they have transgressed any British Laws. I have no doubts about how law should deal with them: fairly but remorselessly. But what caught my attention more was this bit:


Embedded within this article is the news of Norwegian PM who asserts that extremism will be met with Democracy. Then the News Clip goes on to say : Norwegian PM *defiant* as *under-fire* police reveal they saved 600 people on terror island.

If one clicks the news clip a new page opens on which same matter in big & bold headline screams at the viewer.
Would you call somebody who says, “‘It’s absolutely possible to have an open, democratic, inclusive society, and at the same time have security measures and not be naive“, defiant?
The phrase *under-fire* coming right after *defiant* creates a deliberate impression that Under-fire, Norwegian Prime Minister is defiant.
If you read the news below the Screaming headline, then it says, After checking there was only one gunman, police then began an evacuation of more than 600 people. ‘We are proud and humbled by everybody who helped on Utoya Island,’ they said. ‘The police did a remarkable job on the island and afterwards.’“. There is no mention that police are under fire either.
The wikipedia has this note on Daily Mail: “The Mail has been edited by Paul Dacre since 1992. Under Dacre, the Mail has a reputation for a conservative editorial stance on topics such as immigration, working women and teenage sex. This has led Julie Burchill to nickname it “The Daily Hate”.[13] Science writer Ben Goldacre of The Guardian has described the paper as “the home of the scare story”,[14] and it has been accused by Johann Hari of The Independentof causing the deaths of children, because of “faith-based thinking” in its reporting of the MMR vaccine controversy.[15] Nick Davies, writing in New Statesman, accuses the paper of routine inaccuracy in reporting issues related to immigration, quoting a former reporter as saying: “you knew that the headline had been written before the story came in and your job was to make the facts fit“.
Secondly, is it not just chance or coincidence or misfortune that the news related to  Norway Terror attacks sits pretty visibly within so called *campaign of Islamist Extremists*? Is the positioning innocuous? I don’t think so. It is diabolic and deliberate.  It is to subtly create a connection in reader’s mind that Norway terrorism attacks are because of Islamist Extremists. In Psychology this is called power of suggestion that leads the receiver to make his *own connections*. It is far more powerful than direct propaganda. This is so because reader has a sense of ownership and therefore strong affinity over the *false connection* he is induced to make.
There are fanatics within Muslims community like they are else where. But for all I know, as the headline has been massaged so thoroughly by daily mail, they might have even set up these Sharia Nuts to do this job for a fee on camera for Daily Mail.
When I made the search, except Daily Mail no other top website appeared on the first search page. On the second page the well known site which appeared said this: “According to the Daily Mail, hate preacher Anjem Choudary has claimed responsibility for the scheme, saying he plans to flood specific Muslim and non-Muslim communities around the UK and ‘put the seeds down for an Islamic Emirate in the long term“.
There is no SUN, BBC, Telegraph, Guardian…. What does it show?
There is a need for every reader or observer to be an alert *Forensic Reader*.

‘No porn or prostitution’:

Islamic extremists set up Sharia law controlled zones in British cities

Islamic extremists have launched a poster campaign across the UK proclaiming areas where Sharia law enforcement zones have been set up.
Communities have been bombarded with the posters, which read: ‘You are entering a Sharia-controlled zone – Islamic rules enforced.’
The bright yellow messages daubed on bus stops and street lamps have already been seen across certain boroughs in London and order that in the ‘zone’ there should be ‘no gambling’, ‘no music or concerts’, ‘no porn or prostitution’, ‘no drugs or smoking’ and ‘no alcohol’.
Hate preacher Anjem Choudary has claimed responsibility for the scheme, saying he plans to flood specific Muslim and non-Muslim communities around the UK and ‘put the seeds down for an Islamic Emirate in the long term’.
In the past week, dozens of streets in the London boroughs of Waltham Forest, Tower Hamlets and Newham have been targeted, raising fears that local residents may be intimidated or threatened for flouting ‘Islamic rules’. 
Choudary, who runs the banned militant group Islam4UK, warned: ‘We now have hundreds if not thousands of people up and down the country willing to go out and patrol the streets for us and a print run of between 10,000 and 50,000 stickers ready for distribution.
‘There are 25 areas around the country which the Government has earmarked as areas where violent extremism is a problem.

‘We are going to go to all these same areas and implement our own Sharia-controlled zones.
‘This is the best way for dealing with drunkenness and loutishness, prostitution and the sort of thug life attitude you get in British cities.’
The former lawyer added: ‘This will mean this is an area where the Muslim community will not tolerate drugs, alcohol, pornography, gambling, usury, free mixing between the sexes – the fruits if you like of Western civilisation.
‘We want to run the area as a Sharia-controlled zone and really to put the seeds down for an Islamic Emirate in the long term.’
Scotland Yard is now working with local councils to remove the posters and identify those responsible for putting them up.
Choudary said he was organising a protest against the Far Right in Waltham Forest this weekend following last Friday’s killing spree in Norway by anti-Islamic gunman Anders Breivik.

He said: ‘We are going to put the events in Oslo on the agenda. We are going to be marching and addressing this issue. It is a whole new scenario now. The Muslim community needs to be vigilant. There is an undercurrent against Islam.
‘I do believe a Norway-style attack could happen here.’
The campaign comes just months after stickers proclaiming a ‘gay-free zone’ and appearing to reference the religious Islamic text of the Koran appeared in Tower Hamlets.
Women in parts of East London including Tower Hamlets have been threatened with violence and even death by Islamic extremists if they did not wear headscarves.
James Brandon, of the anti-extremism think-tank the Quilliam Foundation, which has dubbed the intimidation the work of ‘Talibanesque thugs’, said: ‘This is a small group which is not representative of these communities.

‘It’s great news that the police have decided to investigate this. This has the potential to divide communities and upset people.’
Yesterday the leader of Waltham Forest Council, Chris Robbins, said: ‘As soon as we heard about these posters we worked over the weekend to take them all down.
‘Since then we have been going through our CCTV images and working with the police to try to identify the culprits. Our policy is to use the full extent of our powers to prosecute any offenders.
‘People should not get the wrong idea about our borough because a handful of small-minded idiots, who do not live here, decide to deface our streets with ridiculous posters.’
