Those promoting PREVENT are getting desperate, it seems. Sources in Birmingham forwarded a letter from Waverley School (Birmingham) directed to parents, stating that the school will participate in a BBC Panorama documentary promoting PREVENT. The letter reads that the BBC programme will “showcase some of the excellent work we do around Safeguarding and the Prevent Duty”. The film crew will be in the school tomorrow (25th November) and requests the parents to fill in a consent form.
A major event targeting Muslims is set to take place in Birmingham on Monday, I am told and it involves two individuals who on the face of it, have little connection with each other: Kamal Hanif and David Cameron.
A closer look at Hanif and his mind-set (or lack thereof) reveals that he is the type of person perfect for neoconservative exploitation.
Kamal Hanif: A Proxy for the DfE
In August 2014, I drew attention to the promises of engagement which were made by the head of academies and free schools, Colin Diamond, to the parents and former governors of Park View Educational Trust (PVET), the academy which was at the centre of Michael Gove’s incursion into Birmingham schools, under the pretext of the disproved Trojan Horse Hoax.
Instead what followed was the purge of existing governors and the dictatorial instatement of hand-picked governors. I revealed that among the hand-picked governors were those who were on the board of the Birmingham Education Partnership (BEP), the organisation led by white supremacist and alleged architect of the Trojan Hoax letter Tim Boyes, which has recently received millions to “clean-up” schools in Birmingham, train governors and deal with “extremism” issues.
My intention was to cover this aspect in the second part of my analysis of Theresa May’s anti-Muslim, discriminatory, hypocritical speech. However, given the outrageous Muslim minority discrimination exhibited by the Home Office, the issue needs to be separately.
May announced that Shari’ah courts are to be investigated, because she “knows there is a problem”. As an example she states that,
“there is evidence of women being “divorced” under Shari’ah law and left in penury”
However, there is also “evidence” of Jewish women being left in marriage limbo due to the abuse by the husband issuing a “get” (divorce). The Beth Din courts govern Halacha (Jewish law). A “get” is required for either of the couple to remarry. Where the husband refuses a “get”, the wife is left in the status of “agunah”, or “chained woman”. If the wife then remarries in this state, her subsequent children (“mamzer”), which are religiously regarded as illegitimate, are treated as outcasts as they cannot marry a fellow Jew and the stigma remains down the line.
