MPAC: “Take your Holocaust then shove it up your…”
The Muslim Public Affairs Committee (MPAC) once again showed its true colours on Monday after it mocked Holocaust Remembrance Day.
Writing on their Facebook page, MPAC wrote:
MPAC was banned by the National Union of Students from university campuses in 2004 for its anti-Semitism and was described by the 2006 Report of the All-Party Parliamentary Inquiry into anti-Semitism (pdf) in this way:
The use of ‘Zionist’ as a replacement for ‘Jewish’ is common on the MPACUK website. The CST submitted evidence that in one explicit case of this the Talmud, a Jewish religious text written many centuries ago, was described as a “Zionist holy book”. The website also posed the question: “Is this the most Powerful and Racist book in the world?!”
MPACUK has also articulated Jewish conspiracy theories through the language of Zionism describing it as an “octopus that now penetrates every western nation and pushes it to start world war three upon Muslims” and warning that “Any man who knows anything of Zionists, knows that they will not stop until the Muslims ‘followed by mankind’ are dead or enslaved”.
Asghar Bukhari, MPAC’s chairman, is notorious for having offered to fundraise for the infamous Holocaust denier, David Irving, who faced a legal bill following the failure of his libel action against Professor Lipstadt and Penguin Books.
In 2008, Bukhari wrote this comment on Facebook:
Muslims who fight against the occupation of their lands are ‘Mujahadeen’ and are blessed by Allah. And any Muslim who fights against Israel and dies is a martyr and will be granted paradise. The concept of Jihad is a beautiful thing, and logical to those with a sincere heart. It tells the human being to stand up and fight against those who bring evil and oppression on this earth, and by standing up – roll back that oppression until the people are free from it. There is no greater oppressor on this earth then [sic] the Zionists, who murder little children for sport…Any public attack on Islam and the Ummah is not going to be tolerated by men like me. I have dealt with these Zionists before, a veneer of reason, below which lies a crooked mind plotting and planning to extend their hatred against us.
