Their priority was showing Muslims as victims, not standing up against Islamic jihad terror. This is not surprising, given that Theresa May, who banned me from entering the country while letting in numerous jihadis, is Prime Minister. But it is unconscionable.
“EXCLUSIVE: UK Police SOUGHT OUT ‘Islamophobia’ Reports to Claim Rise After Westminster Attack,” by Jack Montgomery, Breitbart, March 29, 2017:
The “slight uplift” in Islamophobia following the Westminster terror attack may be attributable to the authorities actively encouraging Muslims to come forward with allegations following so-called “trigger events”.
Acting Metropolitan Police Commissioner Craig Mackey said there was a “slight uplift” in so-called “Islamophobic incidents” following the attack, although he confessed the increase was “small, and far smaller than we have seen in previous events”.
Breitbart London contacted the Metropolitan Police press bureau for more information on the numbers behind this claim, and New Scotland Yard provided the following incident log:
- Wednesday (day of incident): 2 Islamophobic incidents
- Thursday: 10 Islamophobic incidents
- Friday: 11 Islamophobic incidents
- Saturday: 5 Islamophobic incidents
- Sunday: 8 Islamophobic incidents
- Monday: 3 Islamophobic incidents
The statement which New Scotland Yard sent along with its figures suggests the rise may not be due to a genuine increase in Islamophobia, but could instead be due to a “community engagement plan” which sees the authorities actively encourage Muslims to come forward with allegations following what they describe as “trigger events”:
“Where we identify a possible trigger event that could result in more hate crime we instigate a community engagement plan to ensure those in communities who may be victims of hate crime know that we will not tolerate this kind of crime and that we encourage them to report this to the police,” they wrote.
The statement also revealed the sheer scale of the Met’s efforts to boost hate crime recordings – in line with official government policy – with some 900 specialists now focused on this area.
“Over the last two years, the MPS has increased specialist investigators within the 32 London borough community safety units by 30 per cent, with more than 900 specialist member of staff dedicated to investigating all hate crime,” the statement added.
It should also be noted that the above incident log does not describe actual recorded crimes, but only hate crime allegations. These are recorded as “incidents” regardless of whether or not the reports can be substantiated….
