Solidarity with Hicham Yezza

Many readers will be familiar with the case of Algerian-born Hicham Yezza. He, along with Rizwaan Sabir, were arrested at their Notts Uni office back in May under the Terrorism Act. Sabir, whose postgraduate research specialism is fundamentalist Islamic terrorism, downloaded an Al-Qaeda training manual (from an official US government website!) and forwarded it to Yezza for printing. This was picked up by university IT staff, which was passed up the management chain, who in turn informed the police. Both men were taken into custody for six days, and then released without arrest.

It seems they were arrested under suspicion of committing thoughtcrime. Research into extremism involves handling all manner of questionable material, and this a basic given as far as academic values are concerned. But this was not a good enough explanation for the counter-terrorist police. They extensively quizzed Yezza about his activities in Nottingham's anti-war movement, his role as the editor of local magazine,
Ceasefire, and about his comrades on the staff. The Free Hicham campaign reports what happened next:
Not having been charged under the Terrorism Act, Hich was immediately re-arrested minutes after his release for charges under the Immigration Act, in a move that was considered by many (not least Nottingham South MP, Alan Simpson) to be highly political and suspect. Despite Hich’s publicly-declared intention that he was determined to fight the charges in court, and that he was seeking detailed legal advice, an order for a fast-tracked deportation was suddenly issued on May 23 and a deportation flight was scheduled for June 1. The Home Office planned to remove Hich from the U.K. after thirteen years’ of residence less than three weeks after his arrest under the Terrorism Act. Thanks to a huge campaign of protest at this injustice, including the biggest demonstration in the university’s history, a successful legal challenge was mounted and the fast-track deportation was cancelled.

Nonetheless, the Home Office refused to grant Hich temporary release whilst his case was being reconsidered. He subsequently spent a total of three weeks being moved across the country from one Immigration Removal Centre (IRC) to another, in the process spending over twenty-five hours being transported in secured transit vans. During the course of his detention, he endured significant physical as well as emotional pressures from the detention authorities, including a forcible removal from Colnbrook IRC to Dover IRC. On June 16, an application lodged by his legal team to have him released on bail was successful despite strong opposition from the Home Office.
The Home Office have since charged Yezza with immigration-related offences, but offered to drop them if he left the country "quietly". Then came a deal that would have allowed Hich to stay until he had his day in court, a position the Home Office has reneged on. They aim to deport him after a short hearing due on 8th January.

The persecution of Yezza is political. Rather than admit the misuse of the already draconian Terrorism Act the authorities would prefer to hush it up by disposing of their inconvenient victim as quickly as possible. But this is literally a matter of life and death. There are fears Hich could face torture and possible execution if he returns to Algeria. As far as the government is concerned, what's a life against their precious deportation figures? Donations to the campaign and what you can do to help are detailed

I don't get any spam for over a year, and then two messages turn up at once! And there I was hoping it would be some comment on Hich's case. Never mind!

I see; this manual detailing terror tactics and bomb making was downloaded purely for "research." (The same kind of "research" that led Pete Townsend to pay to access child pornography?) And was then forwarded on just for printing. Amazing.

Given the sensitive nature of the subject matter, and the fact that this "expert" would certainly have known that its possession was likely to constitute an offence, surely it would have been wise to have no bar of it?

But then again, this individuals contempt of this country and its laws is evident when you discover that he doesn't believe our immigration laws and procedures apply to him. This guy was smart enough to obtain a degree but not smart enough to understand his immigration status? Rubbish - he clearly knew and just didn't care. Pure contempt.

Deportation is not really the only answer here - he should be forced to serve a very lengthy custodial sentence first for being an illegal immigrant and then deported with just whatever he arrived with back to where he comes from, at his own expense.

Good riddance to bad rubbish.

Besides the offences already committed, the simple fact is that immigration and national cohesion do not work - especially immigration of the Islamic kind. The sooner the Dhimmi minded media and powers that be in this country are pushed aside the better.

We have been relatively lucky in this country so far with just four suicide bombings, but other countries face constant battle with their fifth column Islamic immigrants - France, Holland, Belgium, Denmark , etc. but it seems to be Sweden, with its Socialist / Marxist long term government that has fared the worst.

Just for example, muslims have been rioting in Malmo and Stockholm for over a week now (Christmas day included) and are showing no signs of stopping. Not that you would know from the media here, or even their own media which has barely reported it and only refers to "youths" when it does.

The invasion / combat mentality of the muslims can easily be discerned by the chants of ‘Allah Akbar’ as they petrol bomb, brick and stone the police and the fire brigade attempting to put out the fires - and whilst looting.

But given their evident criminal nature and violent hatred of all things Swedish- and white - it is not at all surprising.

"The number of rape charges in Sweden has tripled in just above twenty years. Rape cases involving children under the age of 15 are six - 6 - times as common today as they were a generation ago. Most other kinds of violent crime have rapidly increased, too. Instability is spreading to most urban and suburban areas.

According to a new study from the Crime Prevention Council, Brå, it is four times more likely that a known rapist is born abroad, compared to persons born in Sweden. Resident aliens from Algeria, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia dominate the group of rape suspects. According to these statistics, almost half of all perpetrators are immigrants. In Norway and Denmark, we know that non-Western immigrants, which frequently means Muslims, are grossly overrepresented on rape statistics. In Oslo, Norway, immigrants were involved in two out of three rape charges in 2001. The numbers in Denmark were the same, and even higher in the city of Copenhagen with three out of four rape charges."

And here are just a few mainstream reports in the Swedish press - all the more remarkable for the fact that Sweden's government and press on matters of immigration are the most delusion, restrictive and duplicitous in Europe - the situation must be at crisis level.
Malmø, Sweden. The police now publicly admit what many Scandinavians have known for a long time: They no longer control the situation in the nations's third largest city. It is effectively ruled by violent gangs of Muslim immigrants. Some of the Muslims have lived in the area of Rosengård, Malmø, for twenty years, and still don't know how to read or write Swedish. Ambulance personnel are attacked by stones or weapons, and refuse to help anybody in the area without police escort. The immigrants also spit at them when they come to help. Recently, an Albanian youth was stabbed by an Arab, and was left bleeding to death on the ground while the ambulance waited for the police to arrive. The police themselves hesitate to enter parts of their own city unless they have several patrols, and need to have guards to watch their cars, otherwise they will be vandalized. "Something drastic has to be done, or much more blood will be spilled" says one of the locals.

The number of people emigrating from the city of Malmø is reaching record levels. Swedes, who a couple of decades ago decided to open the doors to Muslim "refugees" and asylum seekers, are now turned into refugees in their own country and forced to flee their homes. The people abandoning the city mention crime and fear of the safety of their children as the main reason for leaving.

ALL of the 600 windows at one of the schools in Malmø have been broken during the summer holiday. Window smashing alone costs the city millions every year. City buses have been forced to avoid the immigrant ghetto, as they are met with youths throwing rocks or bottles at them if they enter. Earlier this year, a boy of Afghan origin had made plans to blow up his own school.

People working at the emergency ward at the major hospital in Malmø receive threats every day, and are starting to get used to it. Patients with knives or guns are commonplace. They have discussed having metal detectors at the emergency entrance, but some fear this could be seen as a provocation.

Lisa Nilsson has lived in Manhatten, New York City, for 25 years. After moving back to Malmø, Sweden, she now misses the safety of New York. She never walks anywhere in Malmø after dark, but takes a taxi everywhere she goes.

Rapes in Sweden as a whole have increased by 17% just since the beginning of 2003, and have had a dramatic increase during the past decade. Gang rapes, usually involving Muslim immigrant males and native Swedish girls, have become commonplace. Two weeks ago, 5 Kurds brutally raped a 13-year-old Swedish girl.,2789,528363,00.html

22-year-old Swedish woman going out for fresh air gang raped by three strange men. The only said one word to her: "Whore!"
Ali Dashti comments: "Stories like this are in Swedish newspapers every week. Swedish media usually take great care not to mention the ethnic background of the perpetrators, but you can usually read it between the lines."

One more: how have Swedish politicians reacted to the chaos caused in one of their major cities because of Muslims of whom even the police seem to be afraid? By making it easier for Muslims to enter Sweden:

Sweden's politicians view arranged marriages as a positive tradition: a cultural pattern that immigrants should be allowed to preserve even in Sweden. The Swedish government feels that interfering in arranged marriages is an encroachment upon private life. In addition, immigrant couples can apply for family reunification in Sweden even if they've never seen each other before - as long as the marriage is entered in a culture with a tradition of parents arranging marriages on behalf of their children. A 2002 study by Växjö University economics professor Jan Ekberg found that immigration cost Swedish taxpayers DKK 33 billion that year, compared to just DKK 10 billion in Denmark. And while one might assume that the rise in costs would result in knee-jerk opposition to immigration, just the opposite has happened in Sweden. A Swedish government commission has proposed abolishing the so-called “seriousness requirement.”

Wonderful benefits of the rich diversity.

When we will all learn that "birds of a feather flock together" and that this insane mixing is just leading to extreme misery and violence?

When that day comes, I suspect.

"We are the only country in history that ever deliberately changed its ethnic makeup, and history has few examples of 'diversity' creating a stable society." - Said Richard Lamm, former governor of Colorado.

Substitute only for every white country and you have a very true statement.

And here is a Fox news report on the complete breakdown of muslim dominated Malmo:

This is the reality.

Amazing how 'anonymous' posters crawl out the gutter when irrefutable evidence is brought in to counter the fairy tale left.

Typically completely skirting around the evidence but leaving what is obviously meant to be some kind of witty bombshell. (Only the hysterical insults are missing, so far.)

David Copeland was clinically insane. A diagnosed paranoid schizophrenia with a personality disorder, he represented no one but his own delusions.

The evidence above is of a cohesive muslim assault on Sweden and Swedish society - an aggressive invasion and take-over of as much of Sweden as they currently can.

But you already know that and you are unable to come up with anything remotely logical as a refutation - hence the nonsense.

Thank you for the insightful post into the outrageous 'Yezza affair', which became well-known thanks largely to bloggers like yourself. Wishing him all the best.

How v un-British of you, Sentinel. Ever heard of that dear principle, 'innocent until proven otherwise'? You're letting your racism cloud your judgement regards the real issues this case throws up.
