More evidence emerging, from an official meeting to discuss the new British "religious hatred" law, of the Orwellian intentions behind it.

"I asked Iqbal Sacranie, general secretary of the MCB (Muslim Council of Britain) ,whether he thought that any public statements about Islamic terrorism, or any speculation about the number of Muslims in Britain who might support Islamic terrorism, would constitute incitement to religious hatred?

He said: 'There is no such thing as an Islamic terrorist. This is deeply offensive. Saying Muslims are terrorists would be covered by this provision'.

So now we know what the MCB wants to prosecute under this proposed new law."
This is truly terrifying, fundamentally changing every cornerstone of British free speech. That the New Labour clones will pass it overwhelmingly is a forgone conclusion.

The UN under it's "Islamophobia" probe and CAIR (Council on American Muslim Relations) are also agitating for similar laws.

More on this from the excellent Melanie Phillips's Diary
