It’s January 2013 & The ”Highfields Curfew” Is Still In Place!

There is a say which goes like this: give the devil a finger he will take a hand, give him a hand he will take the whole arm and so forth. This is what happens with the now infamous favoured mass population conditioning-technique used previously by dictators and today mostly by ”democracies” of the west, the ”mission creep”, or just ”the creep”!

Anyway it has been at least four months now and our neighbourhood in Leicester, Highfields (which is predominantly Muslim 60 per cent and others non-Muslims non-natives making up the 25 per cent, and the final 5 per cent is of the local British Natives), is still under the ”night time curfew” as placed by local police (again, we will say, welcome to Britain).

Anyway, we just thought we might keep you updated on the status of the ”curfew”, which was promised to be lifted last month, December 2012, mmm!

Anyway, a selection of good week-end readings for you from various newspaper across the world (part of the ‘Muslim in the News’):
