British Empire Sun Shines No More

leave a comment »

At one time in history, the sun never set on the British Empire. There was a time that Great Britain would never bow in fear. Sadly, Winston Churchill, the great British Prime Minster who proudly intoned: “We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.”

Churchill must be turning over in his Westminster Abbey’s grave because today, the UK has all but surrendered. The British sun has set – its’ light has been dhimmed. Or I should say dhimmified. Daniel Pipes, an Islamic expert who has been called a prophet, speaks up about the next country to have Islam culture rammed down their throats: Great Britain.

Pipes writes about BMI, the British Midlands Airlines. BMI has succumbed to pressure by Muslims in anti-Semitic business practices, including firing of employees for not kow-towing to Islamic culture and displaying maps that inaccurately wipe Israel off the maps.

It [BMI] fired Lisa Ashton, 37, a stewardess, in April 2008 because she refused two directives concerning her time in Saudi Arabia: in public areas there she must wear the abaya, the black robe that covers everything but the face, feet, and hands; and she must follow behind her male colleagues. When Ashton turned down flights to Saudi Arabia, claiming discrimination, BMI dismissed her. Ashton brought suit against BMI. Describing her case, she said that “It’s not the law that you have to walk behind men in Saudi Arabia, or that you have to wear an abaya, and I’m not going to be treated as a second-class citizen. It’s outrageous. I’m a proud Englishwoman and I don’t want these restrictions placed on myself.” Ashton lost the first round when an employment tribunal ruled that BMI was justified in imposing “rules of a different culture” on its staff and cleared the company of sexual discrimination. Ashton may seek a judicial review of the decision.

Its [BMI] digital maps on the airlines’ twice daily flights from London’s Heathrow Airport to Tel Aviv’s Ben-Gurion Airport, the kind that passengers watch while on the plane, marking the flight’s progress, did not show Israel. Mel Bezalel explains in the Jerusalem Post: “Instead of viewing Tel Aviv or other Israeli cities signposted on screens, customers flying on two BMI-owned Airbus A320 airplanes have instead been exclusively shown Haifa, spelled ‘Khefa’ – the Arab name of the city before 1948.” BMI apologized and proffered an excuse: namely, that the digital maps were inherited when BMI bought British Mediterranean Airways (BMED) in 2007. BMED flew primarily to the Middle East and tailored its maps to the many Muslim passengers on its flights. BMI spokesman Phil Shepherd said that the “old maps” were due to be deactivated and new maps, which do mention Israel and Tel Aviv, will appear on screens in two weeks.

The digital map on BMI writes Haifa as “Khefa” and does not name Israel.

BMI isn’t better for business. Its’ only interests seem to be keeping the Middle East pacified with anti-Semitic management practices and lies.
