    Members of a banned Islamic hate group reportedly have plans to put up thousands posters around the UK advertising the season of giving as one of rape, promiscuity, abortion, crime and pedophilia. According to the Daily Mail, the groups hope their campaign will help “destroy Christmas” in the UK and convince more Britons to convert to Islam.

    The posters have already made appearances in parts of London where Labour MP Jim Fitzpatrick called them “extremely offensive” and demanded they be taken down.


    The so-called “Evils of Christmas” read:
    • ‘On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me an STD (sexually transmitted disease).

      ‘On the second day debt, on the third rape, the fourth teenage pregnancies and then there was abortion.’

      According to the posters, Christmas is also to responsible for paganism, domestic violence, homelessness, vandalism, alcohol and drugs.

      Another offence of Christmas, it proclaims, is ‘claiming God has a son’.

      The bottom of the poster declares: ‘In Islam we are protected from all of these evils. We have marriage, family, honour, dignity, security, rights for man, woman and child.’
    The group’s organizer, 27-year-old Abu Rumaysah, once called for Sharia law in Britain, along with Anjem Choudary, the leader of a militant Islamic group called Islam4UK. The group was reportedly banned earlier this year after it threatened to protest at a veterans’ memorial.
    • Mr Rumaysah told the Mail that he was unconcerned about offending Christians.

      He said: ‘Christmas is a lie and as Muslims it is our duty to attack it.

      ‘But our main attack is on the fruits of Christmas, things like alcohol abuse and promiscuity that increase during Christmas and all the other evils these lead to such as abortion, domestic violence and crime.

      ‘We hope that out campaign will make people realise that Islam is the only way to avoid this and convert.’
  2. And yet in America we bend over backwards to be tolerant of Islam...

    No wonder they think we're a bunch of spineless pussies...
  3. Looks like the type of bait some fucked up right-wing Christian radicals would fake to upset unsuspecting kool-aid drinkers.
  4. Well why don't you put yourself to fucking work and get to the fucking bottom of it.
  5. They list one of the evils of Christmas is Paganism. I guess you could also say the main cause of Atheism is Christianity.
  6. Here's some more Christmas cheer from the religion of peace:


    No Christmas festivities for some Iraq Christians

    (Reuters) - Some church leaders in Iraq have told Christians not to celebrate Christmas except with prayer after lethal attacks and continuing threats by militants against the Iraqi Christian community.

    "No Santa Claus, no celebrations, no gifts this year," Archbishop Louis Sako, chairman of the Chaldean archbishops in Kirkuk and Sulaimaniya, said on Wednesday. "We don't have the right to jeopardize others' lives."

    In a new threat published on an Islamist website, the local affiliate of al Qaeda threatened more attacks against Iraqi Christians.

    Insurgent attacks have panicked Iraq's minority Christian community. Thousands have fled to the semi-autonomous northern Kurdish region or overseas.

    In the worst attack, 52 people were killed when security forces stormed Our Lady of Salvation Catholic church in Baghdad after militants took hostages during Sunday mass on October 31. Iraqi authorities said they had arrested 12 suspected al Qaeda members in connection with the assault.

    "We are still deeply wounded from what happened in Our Lady of Salvation church," Sako said. "We saw innocent people brutally killed while praying to God, so how can we celebrate?"

    "We will not celebrate this year. We will only pray to God asking for peace to prevail in our country."

    The church attack renewed fears that Sunni Islamist militants were trying to drive Christians out of their homeland.

    The U.N. refugee agency said last week that some 1,000 Christian families, roughly 6,000 people, had fled to Iraqi Kurdistan from Baghdad, Mosul and other areas.

    A U.N. official said Christians in the Iraqi capital and in Mosul, which is considered al Qaeda's last urban stronghold, have started a slow but steady exodus.

    In its latest threat, the Islamic State of Iraq, the local affiliate of al Qaeda, said Iraqi Christians risked further attacks unless they pressured the Christian church in Egypt to release a group of people it said the church was holding after they had converted to Islam.

    The al Qaeda wing also warned Iraqi Christians against proselytizing and fraternizing with occupation forces.

    Mukhlis Kyriakos, a priest at Our Lady of Salvation, said the decision to limit festivities was made in part because of ongoing threats from militants, who had warned parishioners not to use traditional methods to honor those killed.

    "The Archbishop Council of Iraq decided that celebrations are to be limited to prayers at churches only. No celebrations, no parties," he said.

    "We are still receiving threats from terrorists. Even families of those killed inside the church were threatened that if they hang a banner marking their lost relatives, their houses will be blown up."

    Iraq's Christians once numbered about 1.5 million. There are now believed to be about 850,000 out of a population estimated at 30 million.

    "What is happening to us these days is similar to what happened to Jews in Iraq before," Kyriakos said. "Christians are being displaced from their country."
  7. To all of the hypocrites on this website, to all of the zionists and their Christian zionist circumcised cock suckers, Mary Christmas to all of you fakes.

    Nazareth, Jesus’s hometown, is today a bustling city of over 70,000 people. The people of Nazareth are termed “Arab citizens of Israel” or “1948 Palestinians,” depending on one’s politics. About a third of Nazarenes are Christians, the rest are Muslim.
    On the hill rising above the dense town and its imposing Basilica of the Annunciation, lies Upper Nazareth (Hebrew: “Nazareth Illit”). This community was founded by Israel in 1957, a Jewish town situated so as to overlook the country’s largest solidly Arab community. However, realities in the Galilee transcend nationalist aspirations. Families from Nazareth proper have been moving over the years to the airier hilltop suburb. Today, about 15 percent of Upper Nazareth residents are Arabs, mostly Christians.
    These Arabs have witnessed the enormous Hanukkiyahs (menorahs) places by the city over the Jewish holiday of Hannukah. Now, with the coming of Christmas, they approached the mayor, Shimon Gapso, and requested that a Christmas tree be placed as well. Gafso, reports Israeli news site NRG (owned by Maariv), refused staunchly. “Upper Nazareth is a Jewish town and all its symbols are Jewish,” said Gapso, “As long as I hold office, no non-Jewish symbol will be presented in the city.”
    Arab members of the city council, representing a moderate public that chose to come and live in a heavily Jewish suburb, insisted. They mentioned the Hanukkiyahs erected in American cities that aren’t designated Jewish. Gapso ignored their pleas. “Let them go down to Lower Nazareth,” he said this week. To his support came the city’s chief rabbi, Isaiah Herzl, who said that erecting Christmas tree is unthinkable since it would be
    “offensive to Jewish eyes.”

  8. NAZARETH ILLIT, Israel (AFP) – The mayor of a Jewish suburb of Nazareth sparked outrage on Wednesday after refusing to allow Christmas trees to be placed in town squares, calling them provocative.
    Predominantly Jewish Nazareth Illit, or Upper Nazareth, is adjacent to Nazareth, where Jesus is said to have spent much of his life. It has a sizable Arab Christian minority, as does mostly Muslim Nazareth itself.
    "The request of the Arabs to put Christmas trees in the squares in the Arab quarter of Nazareth Illit is provocative," Mayor Shimon Gapso told AFP.
    "Nazareth Illit is a Jewish city and it will not happen -- not this year and not next year, so long as I am a mayor," he said of the northern Israeli town.
    "Nazareth is right next door and they can do what they want there," he said.
    His decision angered the town's Arab and Christian minority, who accused him of racism.
    "The racism of not putting a tree up is nothing compared to the real racism that we experience here," said Aziz Dahdal, a 35-year-old Christian resident of Nazareth Illit.

  10. Thank you Sameeh, for emphasizing my point. When Muslims are the majority, Christians fear for their lives and cancel Christmas entirely. When Jews are the majority, Christians have it <i>almost</i> as bad... but not quite. :p

    Seriously man, show me one public Christmas tree display erected by any Saudi municipality.
