Now here is an award I’d like to win

I can’t believe that I’m not in the running for this award.

Now don’t laugh this is deadly (in an Islamic way) serious.

The Islamic Human Right Commission…snort…snigger…Islamic Human Rights Commission…bwahahaha…is holding a gala dinner and awards night.

Islamic Human Rights Commission have announced the nominees for the Islamophobia Awards 2015. Centred around a gala dinner, the event aims to subvert Islamophobia through comedy and revue while simultaneously addressing a serious and significant issue in a creative manner.

This year the awards have been split into four separate categories: UK, International, News Media and Film/Book/TV Series. Nominees were submitted by the general public who had the chance to write in whomever they felt had displayed prominent cases of Islamophobia. The ‘UK’ category sees the likes of David Cameron, Michael Gove and Theresa May as well as the UK government as a whole. Likely contributing factors for each nomination include Gove’s handling of Operation Trojan Horse and May’s enhanced counter-terrorism measures.

The ‘International’ category is not limited in terms of scope; seeing nominees from the USA, France, Germany and Australia. From high-ranking figures such as Angela Merkel to Mayor Marcel Mortreau in France who decided that Muslim pupils at a local school would not be given an alternative meal to pork. ‘News Media’ features both individuals and institutions: FOX News and The Sun received nominations as did columnist Katie Hopkins who famously referred to Palestinians as ‘filthy rodents burrowing beneath Israel.’ A host of films received nominations with popular television series Homeland and Citizen Khan also obtaining honours.

Bloody Andrew Bolt is on the list! Why not me?

Bolt explains his pleasure at such an honour:

An Islamic Human Rights Commission seems an oxymoron, and, true enough, this one is almost silent on the Islamists slaughtering infidels, enslaving Yazidi women and Nigerian schoolgirls, murdering journalists critical of Islam and beheading even aid workers. Freedom does not seem a human right of concern to the Islamic Human Rights Commission.

Instead, it reserves most of its anger for people who point out that a faith that seems to licence such abuses might be a threat to more open, multi-faith societies, branding such rational concern as “Islamophobia”.

But let me be grateful. This is the first time I’ve been put in the same shortlist as Barack Obama for an award. Alas, it’s not the Nobel Peace Prize, but this should do in the heads of many on the Left.

I’m going to have to try much harder.

    Apparently telling the truth about Islam gets you branded Islamaphobic.

  • pak

    Thought this was a joke at first. Now I see it is not, clearly a gross oversight that award winning New Zealand blogger not included. Particularly since Australia so well represented, including one “Tonny Abbott” no less.

  • spanishbride

    No way! I want the award because I write more about Islam than Cam. I want to be invited to accept it too. It will be easy to decide what is appropriate dress for such a momentous and Formal occasion. I will wear a Black Burqa accessorised with a fake head of an infidel as my clutch purse. If that does not cause enough offence I will wear shoes with a picture of Muhammad on the soles. Cam will be my plus one and he can whip me with a soft whip as I walk towards the stage. My children can then pelt me with rubber stones as I leave with my award.

    • pak

      And please inform the organisers that you have special dietary requirements and can only be served whole suckling pig and white wine.

      • johcar

        And bacon…

        • pak

          That would be for dessert – salted caramel and bacon ice cream (actually delicious!).

    • Sadly your award is likely to be full metal jacketed and delivered at night.

    • Luis Cannon

      Just make sure you’ve got enough firepower to subdue any true believers.

    • Genevieve

      Some outfit ideas for Cam, Pete and Nige

  • ex-JAFA

    Do award-winners get statuettes in the form of Mohammed?

    • spanishbride

      No silly they get one of these. Best of all you don’t get only one as when you go onto the stage to accept your award every member of the audience throws one to you.

  • Annoyed

    Surely ISIL would be on this list? They say that moderate Muslims are scum and not real Muslims etc don’t they? Surely they are a massive contributor? Does this count as an explicit acceptance of ISIL’s beliefs?

  • conwaycaptain

    Go back at them with another award
    Islam the Religion of Peace award for the greatest Hypocracy in the world.

  • Edward_L

    Meanwhile the Muslim kids in Paris, say the Charlie Hebdo killings weren’t wrong and were probably carried out by people pretending to be Muslim, to make them look bad. Teachers describe dealing with whole classes who are in denial and blame the cartoonists for their deaths by terrorists

    • BloodyOrphan

      Take a look on that website Cameron linked above, they are selling comic books promoting Islam , The Quran and Muhammad.

      Hypocrisy at it’s finest.

  • Annoyed

    So, they’re basically asking Muslims who they want to paint targets on? They’re doing ISIS/ISIL a favour by drawing up a list of Muslim supported targets.

  • Even more laughable in the same publication they have a “Genocide Memorial Day”
    Genocide Memorial Day takes place on the third Sunday of every January to remember the perpetration of genocides and genocidal acts.
    The details of the next London, UK event are:
    Date: Sunday, 18 January
    Venue: University College London, Cruciform Lecture Theatre, Gower Street, London WC1E 6BT
    GMD also takes place through the Decoloniality Network in Amsterdam (click here) and Paris, as well as other cities world-wide. This year it will be taking place in Jerusalem as well!

    Time for some self-indulgent navel gazing and maybe how to plan to be more efficient in future.

  • tinfoilhatguy

    Human rights abuses by muslims is at epidemic levels all over the world and getting worse, and these hypocrites hold a gala dinner as a thinly veiled chance to degenerate anyone who dares to shine a light on their cancerous religion of hate and death.

    Well, par for the course for a sick ideology that commits mass murder over a cartoon.

    Edit: Terrible grammar.

  • G-Man

    Isn’t it great that they have the ability to stage such an event, now that’s what I call freedom of speech and democracy working for the people! Try that in Iran or Syria, or even Dubai or Saudi and see how that works out for ya! If you cant handle individual choice then go find a country that is a better fit…

  • Iva b ginn

    I wonder who is going to be awarded the esteemed”Satan award” Or is that reserved for the Cleric of the year?


    Okay, Cam and SB just let us know how we can nominate you (next time??) and the WO army will take care of it!!!

  • Huia

    Will this award gathering be held before or after the “Humor in the Ebola Zone” comedy night?

  • steve and monique

    I can’t decide if it’s irony or bad taste that it’s a comedic evening

  • Emmess

    I think Citizen Khan should win. If Muslims are going to keep making crap TV like that. I might lose a bit of respect for their religion.

    • I.M Bach

      It’s not a religion, it’s an ideology and a very badly flawed one at that.
