A terrorism expert and Islamic watchdog is defending Great Britain’s prime minister for past comments that criticized Islam and its treatment of women.
Boris Johnson is producing a great many enemies in Parliament for his push for “Brexit,” and now an op-ed he wrote last year for The Daily Mail is being resurrected to suggest he is racist.
Johnson so far has refused to apologize for criticizing Muslim women who are forced to wear burqas on England’s streets, describing them as “looking like letterboxes” and looking like “bank robbers.”
Meanwhile, England’s politicians and schools are infamously firmly in the grip of Islam apologists, and Great Britain's law enforcement officers routinely threaten the public for incidents of “Islamaphobia,” such as making crude comments online, but also ignore hundreds of sexual assaults because the assailants are Muslim men.
Some members of Johnson’s own party have advised him to attend diversity training over his comments but Johnson has not backed down, insisting the face veil is an affront to the freedom of Western societies, in which women have equal rights
Robert Spencer, director of Jihad Watch, says of course face veils are degrading to women. For that reason, he says, Johnson deserves praise for standing up to the “politically correct Gestapo” that is demanding he back down.
“But he refuses,” Spencer says of the prime minster, “which shows he has a certain amount of spine that virtually every other western leader these days does not have."
In Great Britain and elsewhere in the West, Spencer insists, Islamic immigrants believe their lifestyle is a superior one to the country they immigrated to.
“And they mean to impose that model of governance,” he warns, “which denies the freedom of speech, denies the equality rights of women, and many other things.”
