This bigoted prick runs a large 'Christian' church in Northern Ireland. The whole hour is worth hearing just to see how entrenched freaks like this are.

Understandably, this has caused a fair amount of upset across NI over the past week.. with the FIRST MINISTER saying this...

Peter Robinson - 2014-05-28
He defends the Pastoral PRICK's comments and then goes on to say that people not trusting politicians is "exactly the same" as people not trusting Muslims. The fact that politicians become what they are as adults, and as a choice, doesn't seem to have any bearing on his tiny mind.

His comments resulted in an Assembly member saying this to reporters today.

Pakistani man in hospital after being assaulted at Belfast home hours after house targeted in race attack
Muhammad Asif Khattak had earlier called on Peter Robinson to apologise personally to all Muslims after he defended comments made by a firebrand pastor who denounced Islam as 'satanic'

A Pakistani man has been assaulted at his north Belfast home just hours after his house was targeted in an earlier race attack. Muhammad Asif Khattak was set upon after being subjected to a barrage of racist abuse by a group of people outside his Parkmount Street home at around 3.15pm on Sunday afternoon. He was then chased into his home before being attacked. Another man inside was also assaulted. A 57-year-old man and a woman, aged 18, have been arrested in connection with the hate crime.

Muhammad (24) had earlier called on First Minister Peter Robinson to apologise personally to all Muslims after he defended comments made by a firebrand pastor who denounced Islam as "satanic". His comments came after a bottle was thrown through the window of his home in the early hours of Sunday morning. It happened at around 2.50am.

Mr Khattak - who shares the property with another friend - said he no longer felt safe living in Belfast. "If we go outside in the street, people will start swearing at us - what can we do?" he said. "We are just foreigners, we don't feel accepted. We are scared now and my family and friends are telling me to come back to London." Regarding the ongoing row surrounding Peter Robinson's backing of comments made by Pastor James McConnell, he told the BBC the First Minister should "apologise in person to all Muslims".

The latest incident in the city comes just hours after some 4,000 people attended an anti-racism rally in the heart of Belfast city centre, while a similar event was also held in Derry. Organisers of the Belfast rally said it was held to communicate the city's support of its migrant and ethnic minority residents. It was held after Alliance MLA Anna Lo said she would quit politics due to ongoing racist abuse directed at her by loyalists.

Ms Lo said had previously said she was considering leaving Northern Ireland following comments made by First Minister Peter Robinson in support of the controversial pastor who denounced Islam. Ms Lo - who represents South Belfast and just last week ran as a candidate in the European elections - said she was "angry" at the backing given to Pastor James McConnell.

Earlier this week Peter Robinson moved to assure members of the Islamic community by saying "no part of me would want to insult or cause distress to local Muslims". But he continued his defence of Pastor McConnell's "right to freedom of speech".

A spokesperson behind Saturday's rally in Belfast said the attacks on migrants in Northern Ireland were "shaming". "A clear rise in racial prejudice is shaming. Widespread and growing Islamophobia is shaming. The fact that Anna Lo MLA is now considering leaving Northern Ireland due to racism that's shaming. Shame isn't enough."

Plans for an anti-racism march through the streets of Belfast have been announced. The event, planned for next Saturday, is being described as a chance for the community to take a stand against racism.

More Polish homes targeted by racist thugs in fresh bout of 'ethnic cleansing' by UVF
06 May 2014

A young Polish family say they may have to leave their home after their property was one of three attacked in the latest in a surge of race hate crimes. The front windows were smashed and racist graffiti daubed across the properties.

Those who live there told of their terror and said they were fearful of further attacks. A 28-year-old woman, who moved to Northern Ireland from Poland, said she was "very afraid" for the safety of her young family. "We don't know what we will do," she told the Belfast Telegraph. "It was very scary." The rented houses are adjacent to each other at Roslyn Street in east Belfast. 'Locals only' and 'get out' were scrawled over wooden panels placed over the shattered windows.

Another of those targeted is an elderly man from Belfast. He spent yesterday walking through the area in the rain as he didn't want to sit alone in his house. "They were after the Polish people," he said. "I just got the house last Tuesday and now this. I'm from Belfast. People just want to be left alone."

The weekend attack was the latest in a surge of race hate incidents across Belfast with the UVF accused of orchestrating the sickening violence. A senior police officer recently said the hike in hate crimes left "the unpleasant taste of a bit of ethnic cleansing". The PSNI also said it was in no doubt about the involvement of paramilitary groups, notably the UVF. "The nature of recent crimes is very insidious in nature, they are very direct physical manifestations of hatred and intolerance, the nature of which should cause us very significant concern," Assistant Chief Constable Will Kerr said last month.

Polish community worker Eva Grosman said the attacks were hugely damaging to the image of Northern Ireland. "Yet again Northern Ireland is gaining the reputation as the hate crime capital of Europe," she said. "With all the efforts that have gone on to create a positive image of Northern Ireland, it's really having a negative effect."

Last week a Romanian man had faeces thrown at him during a sickening attack, also in the east of the city. The man was targeted as he cycled along the Newtownards Road.

Police have appealed for information about the latest incidents.


Figures obtained by the Belfast Telegraph showed a worrying 43% spike in reported attacks on ethnic minorities across Northern Ireland in the past year. More than two race attacks are reported to police every day, with equality campaigners concerned up to 80% of incidents go unreported. Our figures showed that there were 156 race crimes across Northern Ireland in the first three months of this year compared to 103 for the same period in 2013. The majority of incidents took place in north Belfast (27), followed by the east (23) and south (16) of the city.


"a Romanian man had faeces thrown at him" - that shows you the kind of fucked-up hatred involved. To even think of doing that is bad enough...
