Malik plays the Muslim card - now why does that not surprise me?


Shahid Malik, one of Gordon Brown's cabinet appointees, one from an increasingly desperate bunch of unelected, disgraced, fuckwits, has now been revealed to have cited "religious and cultural norms in the Muslim community" in relation to the investigation into his expenses.

According to the Telegraph: (Sir Philp Mawer wrote in response to Malik's submission)

He added: "It is unfortunate, particularly given his public position, that, in respect of that house, Mr Malik did not think of obtaining at the outset a rental agreement specifying in writing the rent to be paid," Sir Philip said.

"He then entered into an arrangement to pay part of the rent in cash, for which payments (name of the property company) did not give him any receipt.

"I understand the point Mr Malik makes about the influence on him of religious and cultural norms in the Muslim community relating to payments made in cash, but the absence of a rental agreement and of receipts meant that he was left without a clear audit trail to show the payments he had made."


Well, Mister Malik. You live in Great Britain. The cutural norm here is to act in accordance with the moral and legal requirements pertaining to your office as a public servant. Playing the Muslim card just wont wash.

It also a muslim cultural norm to lie (even under oath) if they think it will defend the "honour" of Islam or if having to defend themselves to the kafir. Read about it for yourselves.

Israel know this full well which is why a 'truce' or 'ceasefire' declared by Palestinians is not what you & I consider a truce. It's actually a "hudna" - a chance to re-arm, re-group and re-organise before you return to jihad.

He should be asked what are other aspects of Muslim religious and cultural norms - just so that us Christians, Jews and everyone else knows.

The koran says that you can say what you like to unbelievers as it doesn't count as a real lie. You're only dealing with kaffirs after all.
He's still not as creepy as Keith Vaz. He's a seriously odious muslim MP.

In my view, Sir Philip Mawer had little choice but to clear Malik, because reasonable suspicion or logic is not the same as proof of guilt. For me, whatever his protestations (Malik), such an arrangement for religious reasons or otherwise can only give rise to reasoned speculation. I for one believe that he should not have been invited back into the cabinet, still, he won't be there for long.

Surely that is aiding and abetting his fellow Muslim to evade tax, cash in hand no reciepts no tax. ? Great isn't it Liebour toleates tax dodgers on religious and cultural grounds provided they are Muslim.
