The Hollywood actress says that the UK is not taking in more refugees from Europe because Britain is racist. Ms. Thompson, Islam is not a race.
But this kind of incendiary rhetoric is not surprising coming from Emma Thompson, a vicious antisemite, who has publicly called for the boycott of the Jews. She is virulently anti-Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East, but curiously silent on the creed apartheid, gender apartheid, oppression, subjugation, and slaughter of non-Muslims and religious minorities in Muslim countries.
Apparently she wants more of it — in the UK.
She publicly called on London’s Globe Theater to cancel its invitation to the Israeli theatre company Habima to take part in a Shakespeare Festival, asserting that “by inviting Habima, the Globe is associating itself with the policies of exclusion practiced by the Israeli state.” Allowing Israelis to perform would make the festival “complicit with human rights violations.”
The actress claimed Britain is not taking its fair share of refugees from Europe because the public is racist.
If anyone is “racist,” it’s Thompson. Her outspoken Jew-hatred is chilling, and clearly she relates to the Jew-hatred exhorted in Islamic texts and teachings.
The problem with this massive Muslim invasion is that they come to Western countries with a ready-made model of society and government (sharia) which they believe to be superior to what we have here, and they work to institute it. The UK is under siege by its Muslim population, as is the whole of Europe.
The Islamic State warned Europe that they would send 500,000 “migrants” as “weapons,” and Emma Thompson wants to assist in this?
The Islamic State published a document entitled, “Libya: The Strategic Gateway for the Islamic State.” Gateway into Europe, that is: the document exhorted Muslims to go to Libya and cross from there as refugees into Europe….. more here.

“Britain is RACIST for not taking in more refugees, claims Hollywood star Emma Thompson,” by Tom McTague, MailOnline, September 3, 2015:
Britain is not taking its fair share of refugees from Europe because the public is racist, the Hollywood actress Emma Thompson has claimed.
The Oscar-winning star said the UK’s response to the crisis was ‘really shaming’ and insisted there was ‘plenty of room’ to accept thousands of refugees.
Ms Thompson’s intervention came amid mounting pressure on the government to provide sanctuary for more Syrian families fleeing to Europe.
David Cameron today sought to quell growing public outrage over the humanitarian crisis by promising to ‘fulfil our moral responsibilities’.
He said Britain would continue to accept ‘thousands of people’ as it always has done, but he promised to keep the numbers under review.
The PM blamed the ‘terrible scenes’ of two young Syrian brothers found washed up on a beach in Turkey on ISIS, criminal gangs and Syria’s President Assad.
However, Ms Thompson said the government’s response to the crisis was ‘not good enough’.
Speaking to BBC Newsnight’s Emily Maitlis she added: ‘We have to open our door to more refugees.
‘The idea of 3,000 people in Calais who have been through unspeakable things makes me feel very ashamed.
‘We’re not even missing our quotas. That’s really shaming. So I think it’s got a lot to do with racism.
‘If these people were white, European, that were coming from some dictatorship in Bosnia. If they were coming I think we would feel quite differently about it.’…
They are white.

Hijrah, or jihad by emigration, is, according to Islamic tradition, the migration or journey of Muhammad and his followers from Mecca to Yathrib, later renamed by him to Medina, in the year 622 CE. It was after the hijrah that Muhammad for the first time became not just a preacher of religious ideas, but a political and military leader. That was what occasioned his new “revelations” exhorting his followers to commit violence against unbelievers. Significantly, the Islamic calendar counts the hijrah, not Muhammad’s birth or the occasion of his first “revelation,” as the beginning of Islam, implying that Islam is not fully itself without a political and military component.
To emigrate in the cause of Allah – that is, to move to a new land in order to bring Islam there, is considered in Islam to be a highly meritorious act. “And whoever emigrates for the cause of Allah will find on the earth many locations and abundance,” says the Qur’an. “And whoever leaves his home as an emigrant to Allah and His Messenger and then death overtakes him, his reward has already become incumbent upon Allah. And Allah is ever Forgiving and Merciful.” (4:100) The exalted status of such emigrants led a British jihad group that won notoriety (and a shutdown by the government) a few years ago for celebrating 9/11 to call itself Al-Muhajiroun: The Emigrants.
And now a hijrah of a much greater magnitude is upon us. Evidence that this is a hijrah, not simply a humanitarian crisis, came last February, but was little noted at the time and almost immediately forgotten. The Islamic State published a document entitled, “Libya: The Strategic Gateway for the Islamic State.” Gateway into Europe, that is: the document exhorted Muslims to go to Libya and cross from there as refugees into Europe. This document tells would-be jihadis that weapons from Gaddafi’s arsenal are plentiful and easy to obtain in Libya – and that the country “has a long coast and looks upon the southern Crusader states, which can be reached with ease by even a rudimentary boat.”
