BBC begins broadcast of Islamic jihadist cry

Apr 21, 2020 by

by Jules Gomes, Church Militant:

In a historic first, Britain’s national broadcaster has begun airing the supremacist Islamic call to prayer as mosques remain shut amid the Wuhan virus pandemic.

The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), repeatedly censured for its anti-Christian bias, will also relay Muslim sermons and prayers on 14 local radio stations every Friday at 5:50 a.m. in the run-up to Ramadan at the end of April.

“A cultural line has been crossed,” world-renowned Islamic scholar Robert Spencer is warning, predicting that the implications “are ominous.”

“Is the BBC, the government-funded broadcasting agency of an ostensibly Christian land, really wise to broadcast a declaration of the superiority of another faith, one that directs its adherents to make war against Christians and subjugate them as inferiors under the hegemony of believers (cf. Qur’an 9:29)?” Spencer asks in FrontPage Magazine.

Spencer, author of The History of Jihad: From Muhammad to ISIS, also wonders if it is wise for the public service broadcaster to relay “the cry ‘Allahu akbar,’ beloved of jihad terrorists the world over.”

In Islamic theology, the Adhan — call to prayer — is a triumphalist declaration of Islamic supremacy over Jews and Christians as well as a call to the sacralization of newly conquered territory.
