Bradford Muslims sent shockwaves through the British political establishment after they voted for a white male Catholic (George Galloway) ahead of a Muslim (Imran Hussain) and still got accused of being sectarian.
When you examine the viceral hatred and hostility from our mainstream pro Israeli corporate media towards Galloway only then can you begin to establish the fear and loathing those pro war Neo Con Hawks have towards anyone who challenges their twisted New World Order.
What do George Galloway and Ken Livingstone have in Common a sympathy towards the grievances that we Muslims have in terms of foreign wars and the systematic destruction of our civil liberties. In addition, they have a loathing for the occupation of Palestine and a contempt for the Israel Lobby that has hijacked all main established political parties in this country.
Bradford Muslims have shown how if you have the right policies with the right candidate you can activate the Muslim base to come out in huge numbers. However, my focus is not so much on Political Parties or the Media, my emphasis is ensuring the Muslim community acknowledge and appreciate how our vote is the ultimate weapon of mass destruction that sends fear into the hearts of all those Israelites who have been having kittens since Galloway's election.
Bradford is the template which perfectly exemplifies how non sectarian we Muslims are by voting for a Non Muslim ahead of a Muslim thus illustrating the need for Politicians to address our concerns or face political oblivion.
While Jews in London have sent warnings to Ken Livingstone to change his pro Muslim views it is Bradford Muslims and inshallah we London Muslims that will fire the ultimate warning and send the Israelites into a tailspin. Bradford will be our catalyst and also a warning to you useless buffoons in the Mosques that have treated your own community with arrogance and contempt expecting us to follow your diktats.
The Muslim Youth have spoken, prove to us you will reflect and represent our interests and causes and we will reward you with the authority or is it power you politicians so desire. Increasingly gone are the days when we simply act like sheep and Labour politicians in "safe seats" weigh our votes. Immigration and visas are no longer the line in the sand issue for us as it was for the elder generation.
Demography and time is on our side along with technology as we understand social media, Twitter, and Text messaging which is the future of political campaigning. As our cohesiveness, unity and crucially political literacy improves we will confront our enemies with a weapon that our brothers and sisters are dying for in the Middle East, Democracy and the freedom to vote.
**Update** Gilligan quoting me & manages to get a fantastic headline. Annoyed, wish I had thought of it.
