"Muslims only" hostel run by New Charter charity. Now who's Racist?

It has been announced by "Threshold", New Charter's own homelessness charity (see HERE) that they are to manage a hostel for Muslim women funded by the National Zaket Foundation. The hostel described as being in "Greater Manchester" is in a formerly vacant premises and was renovated with a grant from the Department of Communities and Local Government.

We must be careful not to over-react to this news story. We fully understand the need for women only hostels. Victims of domestic abuse may feel safer in single sex hostels. But we question the need for Muslim only hostels.... unless it is now admitted that there are "Muslim only" problems such as "Honour killings" or arranged marriages. By all means address these issues....BUT HAVE THE HONESTY TO ADMIT THEY EXIST.

One issue though will stick in the collective throat of this Blog's readership. it is this line from the "Threshold" page:-

"A support worker at the project will work with the five vulnerable residents to help them stay physically and mentally well"

Where was this support worker when Roy West's partner was being threatened with eviction? How is it that New Charter claim to operate a policy which is opposed to discrimination and which punishes it's tenants for racism while at the same time their charity "Threshold" can discriminate on religious grounds. In Tameside this de facto means discrimination along racial lines.

It is the old old story, "Do as we say, not as we do!"

Our police discriminate too.
Does anyone seriously think the fuzz would have deliberately ignored for over fifteen years the organised, mass rape of ethnic children by gangs of White men.

New Charter claim to operate a policy which is opposed to discrimination.

The Claimant avers that if any discrimination is found (which is denied),such discrimination can be justified as a proportionate means of achieving a legitimate business aim.

So new charter do believe in discrimination I have it in black and white.

All political thinking for years past has been vitiated in the same way. People can foresee the future only when it coincides with their own wishes, and the most grossly obvious facts can be ignored when they are unwelcome.
