Scotland: Man arrested for “Islamophobic” facebook comments about Syrian refugees
Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 17, 2016
Invasion of Europe news…..
We learned two months ago that Scotland was resettling some of the Syrian refugees the UK has committed to take in.
Now comes news that you better darn well keep quiet about it as Scottish police send a message to locals with arrest of facebook poster. So very sad to see the fierce Highlanders all but gone.
Warning! You are not permitted to speak freely about the Muslim invasion of Europe!
From The Guardian:
Police Scotland have said the arrest of a man responsible for a series of offensive Facebook posts about Syrian refugees resettled on the Isle of Bute should send a clear message that such social media abuse will not be tolerated.
Following a report of a series of alleged offensive online posts relating to Syrian refugees living in Rothesay on Bute, Police Scotland confirmed on Tuesday that a 40-year-old man, understood to be from the Inverclyde area, had been arrested under the Communications Act.
Following the arrest, Insp Ewan Wilson from Dunoon police office said: “I hope that the arrest of this individual sends a clear message that Police Scotland will not tolerate any form of activity which could incite hatred and provoke offensive comments on social media.”
The day before the first arrivals touched down at Glasgow airport, Humza Yousaf, the chair of the refugee taskforce that has coordinated the resettlement programme, and the Scottish government’s only Muslim minister, confirmed he had informed police of the Islamophobic abuse he received on social media.
Endnote: Earlier this morning as I watched the latest news from Syria, I felt rising anger about why we (the West) must take in these centuries-old warring factions. Why is Syria our problem?
