GRENOBLE, France — Police on Sunday arrested four men for attempted murder after they allegedly shot at officers during riots in the French city of Grenoble, police said.
The four were seized in a dawn raid in the working class neighbourhood of La Villeneuve after two nights of unrest in which rioters exchanged gunfire with police and torched shops and cars.
The riots broke out after a 27-year-old man was shot dead by police when he allegedly robbed a casino. Police said the four were held for attempted murder after firing bullets at police during the worst of the rioting early on Saturday. They did not identify those arrested or give their ages.
Police had already made at least seven arrests overnight for carrying weapons. No one was reported hurt in the gunfights.
Youths torched between 50 and 60 cars in the southeastern city nestled in the French Alps as well as construction equipment and two shops. Interior Minister Brice Hortefeux visited the scene on Saturday and pledged to quickly restore order to La Villeneuve.
"There's no future for hoodlums and delinquents because in the end the public authority always wins," he said.
Police officials were due to give a news conference later on Sunday with more details of the police crackdown in the wake of the riot

.....................after complaining 5-bed London home was 'in poor area'
A family of former asylum-seekers from Somalia are living in a £2.1million luxury townhouse in one of Britain's most exclusive addresses at a cost to taxpayers of £8,000 a month.
Abdi and Sayruq Nur and their seven children moved into their three-storey property in a fashionable area of London last month because they didn't like the 'poorer' part of the city they were living in.
Mr Nur, 42, (left) an unemployed bus conductor, and his 40-year-old wife, who has never worked, are now living in Kensington despite the fact that they are totally dependent on state benefits.
They live close to celebrities, including artist Lucian Freud, singer Damon Albarn and designer Stella McCartney, and their home is just minutes from the fashionable Kensington Place restaurant which was a favourite haunt of the late Princess Diana.
The family's new home is believed to be one of the most expensive houses ever paid for by housing benefit, which is administered by local councils but funded by the Department for Work and Pensions.
The disclosure that a single family has been paid so much will embarrass Ministers, who last month pledged to rein in Britain's £20billion-a-year housing benefit bill.
Mr Nur said his former five-bedroom home in the Kensal Rise area of Brent, which cost £900 a week in housing benefit, was suitable for the family's needs but he said they had felt compelled to move because they did not like living 'in a very poor area' and were unhappy with the quality of local shops and schools.
He said he found the new house through a friend who knew the landlord, arranged to rent it through an estate agent, then approached officials at Kensington and Chelsea council who said 'it would be no problem' to move.
Rules allow anyone who is eligible for housing benefit to claim for a private property in any part of the country they wish. The £2,000 per week is paid directly to Mr Nur and his family, who then pay their landlord. Property sources say the house was being advertised locally at a cost of £1,050 per week.
The house is owned by Brophy Group Business Ltd, a British Virgin Islands company whose registered address is a post office box in Liechtenstein. No one from the firm, which bought the house for £2.1 million in 2007, was available for comment.
Mr Nur said: 'The new house is good enough and it is near the school and the shops. We need a house this big because we have so many children. 'The old house was good but the area was not so good. It was a very poor area and there were no buses, no shops and the schools were too far. 'The old house was four or five bus stops away from the primary school attended by two of my children.
'Soon, all three of our younger children are going to be at primary school and we can't take them all on the bus. Now they are going to a school which is just down the road.' From September, his children will attend a school located just 20 yards from their new front door - which has been rated as outstanding by Ofsted.They previously attended a school in Kensal Rise which was rated as satisfactory.
But Mr Nur said his neighbourhood also had other advantages. 'I like the neighbours and there does not seem to be much crime.' He added: 'They have very full shops here and they are still open at 2am. Unlike at Kensal Rise, where they closed at 7pm or 8pm.'
Mr Nur, who lost his £6.50-an-hour job as a bus conductor 18 months ago, claims officials at Kensington and Chelsea council said they 'didn't care' about his decision to move into the borough, which they said was 'not a problem'.
The family's three-storey property, which dates from the 1840s, has five bedrooms, two bathrooms, a fully fitted kitchen and a garden. The family's living room, which boasts a large bay window, is dominated by a 50in LG flatscreen TV. It also has two large black leather sofas, two elaborate rugs and lush houseplants.
Neighbours of the family last night expressed their shock at the amount of housing benefit being claimed. Nigel Melville, 65, a company director, said: 'To be paying that much out in housing benefit is ridiculous - it's too much. I suppose they had to be housed somewhere, but it's an awful lot of money.'
Mr Nur worked for the Red Cross in Somalia and married his wife in 1993. The couple subsequently fled their homeland because of civil war and were granted asylum in Britain in 1999. The couple's four oldest children, who are aged between 12 and 16, were all born in Somalia. The youngest three children were born in Britain.
Mr Nur last night acknowledged the family was lucky to have the new home, but he insisted his family 'were no better or no worse off than anyone else'. He also insisted he was doing his best to find a job. 'I am looking for a job. I am taking a course to train me in how to get a job. I would like any job. Anything in food production or warehouses would be fine.'
The current housing benefit system was overhauled by the last government in April 2008. Labour Ministers introduced new caps on the amount claimants could receive, depending on the size and location of the property.
But instead of bringing costs down, the new system encouraged many landlords to raise rents to the level of the maximum allowable. The new government has announced further sweeping changes to the housing benefit system, which will come into effect next April.
The new rules mean claimants living in a four or five-bedroom house will no longer be able to claim more than £400 a week. The changes have led to warnings that thousands of families will be forced out of existing homes into cheaper properties.
But critics say the changes are essential because of mounting concern about the size of some individual claims, particularly in London. Earlier this year, it emerged that Essma Marjam, a single mother of six, was being paid nearly £7,000 a month so that she could live in a five-bedroom villa in Maida Vale.
In December, Francesca Walker, a mother-of-eight who also lived in Kensington and Chelsea, defended her £90,000-a-year housing benefit claims for a £2 million villa in Notting Hill. She said the family were completely justified in living there because the council could not find a big enough property.
The London borough of Kensington and Chelsea last night declined to comment on the specific circumstances of the Nur family's claim. The council said it had a responsibility to meet the needs of claimants who were eligible for benefits and was powerless to stop people moving into private accommodation in the area.
A spokesman said: 'We have been saying for some years now that the way in which the maximum level of housing benefit is calculated is flawed and we welcome the Government's new changes which begin next year.
'The sums of money that many families claim for housing in the capital and elsewhere is an example of an unreasonably generous benefits system which is open to abuse.' A spokesman for Brent Council said: 'Households, whether they are claiming benefits or are in work, are able to make their own arrangements in terms of renting privately, as long as they can find a landlord with a suitable property.
'This includes decisions about where they live.' More lunacy in a lunatic Britain - where the loonies are now running the country and the sane are in the asylum.

The BNP is no longer a true nationalist party in any sense of the word. It has become nothing more than the Tory party on steroids at best. It is full of multi-cult embracing libtards and leg wetters. It has completely acquiesced and become subservient to the new world order zionist lobby.
To quote the words of an astute commentator penned elsewhere: "People have been allowed to swell the party ranks who simply have no business being there in the first place. They are neither Nationalists nor even particularly politically orientated. They are right wing liberals who neither in depth or shallowness care anything for our future but care only for their own continued personal material comfort and prosperity. They will go along to get along with anyone, embracing diversity so long as their ethnic friends don't scratch their BMW or play their music too loudly. "why were not racist, we have coloured grandchildren doncha know".
Just take a look at the image above for a prime example of how far the BNP has slumped in terms of the desire to preserve our race and nation and the people it now seeks to attract, look at it and read what it says. Then ask yourself, is anything suggested by the lobotomized moron in that post ever likely to exist, or for that matter ever existed at any time in history in any so called multi-cultural society anywhere on God's green Earth?. Secondly ask yourself is this what I signed up for when I joined the BNP?.
Quote: "They will then hopefully see the need to send the more recent immigrant scroungers packing (save our proper British Blacks, Asians and others especially our Sikhs...... and we DO know the difference! they have nothing to fear from us...... The UK was great 20 odd years ago when minorities and the natives were pretty much living in harmony... all went bad when mass islamic nuts and criminal immigrants decided to bring their trades to our land.....)."
With 'friends' like these do we really need enemies?.
Get out now and join a TRUE nationalist party. Join the National Front.
My good friend The General conveys news from the agricultural district that former BNP member and candidate Dave Jones had been approached by a Conservative councilor with intelligence concerning the possibility of a sudden by election in his ward. Apparently said councilor and his group are in need of as much support as they can muster to defeat certain proposals which the council plans to railroad through despite overwhelming public objections and decisive NO vote in a recent referendum..
Dave Jones was informed that he could expect as much 'help and support as is necessary' to win the seat. You can imagine their utter surprise to discover that Dave Jones had resigned and is no longer either a member or candidate for the BNP. He is now a actually a member of the National Front.
You may recall he resigned earlier in the year on principle at the constitutional changes regarding ethnic membership that were hurriedly implemented without the promised all member ballot on the matter. He was promptly slandered for his decision by Northants organizer Rob Walker and others. Their actions have ensured that any chance the BNP may have had of securing a councilor in the area have been irretrievably lost.
Dave Jones is quoted as saying: "It's possible that I could have been persuaded not to leave. At the time I was very angry but nothing was set in stone. I had been approached by the NF but had not yet formally resigned. At that point any talk of my leaving could have been put down to rumour and speculation.
I had spoken to no one in the party about my decision. That was done for me by an outsider without my prior knowledge. Larry Nunn told me I could and would be welcome to change my mind at any time since any final decision about my membership was his. Rob Walkers' personal spite in putting his oar in put paid to all of that.
How can you trust people that will knife you in the back as an indiviual to safeguard our collective interests as a Nation?."
Not only is sleaze, corruption and incompetence endemic throughout the BNP, but they never miss an opportunity, to miss an opportunity.

Thanks to Frodo @ NWN forum...
"Today (15th July) saw the first meeting in Liverpool since all officials were removed from the Branch on the orders of Clive Jefferson. The meeting was to put in place the new officials who would run the branch, the meeting was chaired by Clive Jefferson.
The new officials are:
Organiser: Mike Whitby (From Wrexham)
Fundholder: (Karen Otty)
Secretary: Andrew Leary (from Sefton and has less than a years membership so doesn’t qualify to be an official).
Due to the Suspension of 3 dedicated Activists Peter Stafford, Peter Squire and Tony Ward we were forced to sit upstairs in the public bar area. This made a point of Clive Jeffersons contempt for Democracy and Freedom, all night we received lots of support from the members who were offering to buy us drinks and saying they found it disgusting. However we had plenty of support in the meeting as you will soon hear.
To start the meeting it was pretty normal with them saying who the new officials are and then having a Guest Speaker who was James Whittle. Who I believe made a very good speech which was well received, everything was going fine at this point.
However during the break Gary Lucas a member with less than 2 years membership and a member of security felt the need to come upstairs hide around the corner and take photos of the suspended activists enjoying a drink and a laugh. We informed security who then made Gary Lucas delete the pictures from his phone.
The 2nd part of the meeting then began and this was to discuss what was going on within Liverpool BNP. Now keep in mind that most of the Liverpool members who were at this meeting were suspended, Clive had to bus supporters in such as Chris Vanns etc...
This part of the meeting got VERY heated and lots of shouting occurred which we could hear from upstairs. Firstly former organiser and MEP candidate Steven Greenhalgh listed what Liverpool BNP has done before the elections and after the elections, we were one of the branches that raised the most money in the country for the general election. He stated this because several days ago Clive Jefferson sacked the Branch fundholder on the grounds that the Branch was inactive, a statement which was proven FALSE by Steven Greenhalgh. Clive Jefferson was then stuttering and coughing not able to talk properly under the pressure, he then started to say but there were no other officials. People then pointed out the statement in the letter which sacked the fundholder which is not in line with that, also regardless the fact is within a few days Clive had new officials lined up and had no need to sack our excellent and professional fund holder who is a veteran. Clive Jefferson simply could not answer and was a bumbling and coughing and stuttering all the way through. Mike Whitby had to jump in and save him on a number of occasions. They admitted they were not questioning the integrity of our fundholder and that he had done a great job.
People also asked why the activists has been suspended, again Clive Jefferson could not answer any of these questions. People were getting angry and started to walk out of the room because of the complete joke it was, we were promised answers and none were given.
The point was raised about Andrew Leary not having 2 years membership and therefore could not be an official, Clive said he didn’t know the rule and will have to look it up. Again all that came out of Clive Jeffersons mouth was stuttering and coughing he could not answer a single question he was totally out of his depth.
As a result of the people getting frustrated and demand he stopped repeating himself and answer the questions he immediately dissolved the meeting and brought it to an end without getting through anymore serious questions.
Clive Jefferson thought he could have an easy time by suspending key activists, however he underestimated the support that they had in Liverpool. He was clearly shown that he can not mess with Liverpool and not be held to account for his actions.
After he closed the meeting, Andrew Tierney then started to ridicule the members and chant “bye bye” while sticking his tongue out, he also was confronting another member wanting a fight.
Then as we left the building Gary Lucas shouted “Tranny” too Tony Ward and ran into the building and hid behind the other Security. Clive Jefferson had to be escorted out of the building by a side door because of the high tensions.
This is what is now running the BNP, and it is a disgrace."
Many have asked of late "who would you go for in the BNP leadership race". My answer is no one. I have lost interest in the BNP and did so a long time ago. Even then I saw things as they really are. That the party and those that represent it are just like all other political figures in that they are completely disconnected from the real world. Even if they are not, that is certainly the impression they convey, whether they realize it or not.
Whether I am being stopped in the street, being canvased at my door, having leaflets through my letter box or having some smug face glaring at me through my screen, all I see is a twat in a suit. Nothing more.
Now I don't know about you, but the only people I encounter in suits are people that are after something. That is an immutable and unalterable maxim of society. My election agent used to embarrass me by looking like a Jehovah's witness as we went leafleting or stood outside the polling station. It turns people off plain and simple. If you wear a suit working people invariably eye you with suspicion. And not without just cause.
Ordinary working folk such as moi don't wear suits and ties unless we are up in front of the beak or burying grandma. Other than that, it is my experience and that of my peers, that people who wear suits are people out to take something from us. What they offer in return is purely illusory and will never be realized. Middle class business parasites, bankers, civil servants (of whatever dept), CID, Government agents etc et al. Fill in the blank..
They are all the same and people know it. We are not the dim witted bumpkins they like to assume we are. They are all the same thats why everyone will tell you that they are. It's called knowing from experience. It's an almost Pavlovian response due to a long process of cultivated instinct.
Basically suits represent officialdom, people who assume superiority of status, who think their shit stinketh not. When we see people in suits we think, what does he have in common with me?, why should he be remotely interested in me?, he's not like me, he doesn't even look like me. We think hold on to your wallet because people in suits are symbolic of the acquisition of money by any means. Thats one of the reasons they wear suits, people are intimidated. The very first thing that goes through our mind when we see a suit is, Uh Oh, whats this twat after. How can they expect you to take them seriously dressed like a grave digger.
What ordinary working man would dress up in a suit to sit on a plastic B&Q patio set in the back yard let alone expect themselves to appear as political representative of someone else who has to work for a living. How on Earth can you be expected to take such shallow pretentiousness seriously. How could you ever possibly appear more disingenuous.
Yes of course there are the odd exceptions, like the club stewards who wear those blazers festooned with badges and stick twenty pens in their top pocket but they are cretins and can be discounted.
Looking clean and presentable is one thing, however looking like your from the CIA is another thing entirely. That was the one and only thing I had issue with regarding the NF's Bernie Franklin who I very much admire and respect. He always dressed like he had just come from a mourning at the crematorium.
The day someone walks up to me not wearing a suit, who's breath does not smell like napthalene, calls me by my given name and doesn't insult my intelligence............
Tinky Winky goes swimming..
The National Secular Society President Terry Sanderson has poured cold water on a daft suggestion by Stoke-on-Trent City Council that swimming lessons at some Staffordshire schools should be halted during Ramadan to ensure Muslim pupils “do not swallow water”.
The Council, has issued an 11-page Ramadan guide for schools to help pupils who may be fasting when the school year starts in September. Sanderson slammed the guidance as “out of proportion”.
Surely it should be possible for Muslim pupils to be withdrawn from those elements of the school day that they don’t want to participate in without imposing these restrictions on everybody, Muslim or not.
It is wrong that everyone in schools should be forced to observe Islamic laws when they may have no meaning for them. Rearranging the whole school routine for a whole month to satisfy the religious needs of a few is totally out of proportion.
The Council said swimming was acceptable to Muslims but posed a high risk of swallowing water that may break a fast. Islam requires Muslims to fast from dawn until dusk for one month per year. The council guide states:
Schools with a significant number of Muslim pupils should try to avoid scheduling swimming lessons during Ramadan to remove unnecessary barriers to full participation.
It also suggests re-scheduling sex education classes during the holy lunar month, as Muslim followers who have reached puberty are required to avoid sexual thoughts during this period.
The National Front also says that this guidance is out of proportion and we do not see why British White Christian pupils should be affected by an alien religion and its observance.
If Muslim children don't want to swim then don’t swim it is that simple. They’re not swimming is as different as the Islamic clothing that they wear, different to western Christian clothing, that is and that is that.
All children have a duty to follow the curriculum that is set out for them, if any particular group wishes to remove themselves from it; surely it is up to them to write to the headmaster to seek permission to not take part.
However the majority of the school children must not lose out on their physical exercise unless they too have a letter or are unwell.

How utterly ridiculous is this bollox in the 21st century FFS...
It would appear the 'Green Arrow und Freunde' are throwing their lot in with the illegitimate zionist fascist pariah state of israel. Apparently the BNP and israel are brothers in arms. Glad I quit when I did if that is the case. It certainly explains a lot about the political tactics, not to mention the financial shenanigans of the current BNP leadership though....
Pity 'Der Grüne Pfeil' is in electronic rather than print format. I could wipe my arse on it then.
What will become of Barking and Dagenham in the future is hard to tell. The electorate are all good folk but they have chosen their medicine and now they will have to swallow the bitter pill of Labour’s 100% council control. At what cost to the Party was the Goresbrook by-election lost?
As for myself, I will endeavour to assist where and how I can as a member of the GLA, the good people of the Borough. We have to learn from our mistakes and those of the headstrong egos of our party, how not to make similar mistakes. As for this leadership challenge, I hope it is resolved swiftly and in both good spirit and nature.
Yesterday, 14th July, I was sacked as the Barking and Dagenham Branch Organiser.
Those who have an interest in what I have achieved over the last 5 years and my membership of 11 years, WATCH THIS SPACE…
Full story can be read at Richard Barnbrooks' blog.
Richard Edmonds has announced his support for both the need for a BNP leadership challenge and the nomination of Eddy Butler. In his statement he said:
"Dear Fellow Member,
The need for a BNP Leadership election this year.
Ours is a democratic party and elections for the post of Party Chairman shall be held each year, as Section 7 of the Constitution makes clear.
This year, the long-standing member, Eddy Butler, our former very successful National Elections Officer, is seeking to challenge for the leadership. And I, Richard Edmonds, a founder-member of the Party, and currently serving on the Party’s Advisory Council, am supporting Eddy Butler’s challenge, and for this reason: a leadership election, held under the rules of the Party Constitution, gives members the opportunity to raise matters of major importance for our Party, and thereby in effect to hold the Leadership of the Party to account for their stewardship of the Party.
The matter that I want to see raised in this leadership election is the employment by our Party of an outside businessman, Mr Jim Dowson, who acts as a “consultant” to our Party at a salary of just under £2,000 per week. Yes, just under TWO THOUSAND POUNDS each WEEK.
At a recent Advisory Council meeting I spent a whole week-end in the company of Mr Jim Dowson, and I can say with all respect to him, that he is a forthright man, who answers all questions directly, without any fudge or smudge. At the Advisory Council meeting he confirmed to us that he was not a member of the Party, and he informed us that he receives £7,500 per month as a consultancy fee; that is £90,00 per year, just short of two thousand pounds per week, as his ‘consultancy fee’. Mr Dowson further informed us that he receives an additional £72,000 per year for managing a part of the internal administration of our Party. I will say here, that there is nothing, absolutely nothing that Mr Dowson does for our Party that we could not do for ourselves. And I say that it is a SCANDAL that an outside businessman be paid these colossal sums per week, and for doing what we could and should be properly doing ourselves. As I said to Mr Dowson at the Advisory Council meeting in front of the Party leadership, “Mr Dowson, we should not be employing you.”
Eddy Butler’s challenge is timely and most worthy, I hope that you will support it."
Stalwart activist and sleazebuster Mick Barnbrook has announced his support the forthcoming BNP leadership challenge. In his statement he concluded: " Since the challenge was announced I have been inundated with telephone calls from members in the party asking me not to sign Eddy Butler’s nomination form. I have been told that if I do sign I will be endorsing statements being made by Eddy . I totally refute this.
The telephone calls I have received, the setting up of the nasty blog and rumours that members have been refused entry to meetings because they are supporting Eddy Butler’s nomination is no more than blatant intimidation. It appears that we can fight for freedom of speech and freedom of expression, so long as it doesn’t extend to a leadership challenge in the British National Party.
The efforts to stop Eddy Butler from getting the necessary nominations is giving me cause for concern. It is for this reason that I intend to follow the lead of Richard Edmonds and support Eddy Butler in his challenge. I would urge every member of the party, whether they support Nick or Eddy, who believes in the democratic process, to do the same. Signing the nomination form doesn’t mean you are supporting Eddy Butler. It means that you support a leadership challenge taking place."

After years pounding the beat when they first started out in the force, Britain’s most senior police chiefs might have been expected to manage a walk from one reception to another of just over half a mile.
Instead, they were ushered on to an executive coach and escorted by two officers on horseback and others – in a marked patrol car – carrying guns.
Once they reached their destination, the chief constables and their spouses enjoyed champagne and a feast of chocolate-dipped strawberries, Aberdeen steak and salt marsh lamb.
The bizarre journey took place in Manchester last week at the annual conference of the Association of Chief Police Officers. The country’s most powerful policing organisation, which trades as the private company ACPO Limited, is funded with £10 million from the taxpayer.
£500,000 of OUR money was being spent on the three-day junket. ACPO went ahead with the lavish event despite predictions in an internal document that 28,000 frontline police officers could be replaced by cheaper civilian staff as part of a savage cost-cutting programme.
In his speech to delegates, President Sir Hugh Orde referred to our report last week. He said: ‘It is important that the private sector and the public sector work seamlessly to deliver the best service we can to the public.
At another event later in the week, delegates were protected by a private security company.
Controlled Event Solutions were hired by the Lowry Hotel for the officers’ £98-a-head black-tie dinner.
One of ACPO’s money making schemes is selling information from the Police National Computer for up to £70 a time – even though it pays just 60p to access details.
It also markets ‘police approval’ logos to firms selling anti-theft devices and operates a separate firm offering training to speed-camera operators.
The conference was funded from ACPO’s coffers and by the 44 police forces which sent representatives. It cost £771 per person – a bill of more than £269,000 to the taxpayer. The association booked hundreds of hotel rooms at £150 a night, adding an estimated £157,000.
Acpo a ‘private company that runs OUR public police force (how does that work?) organizes a jolly at OUR expense at the same time that we are told that the level cop cops on the beat cannot be sustained due to financial cut-backs?
These cops/company directors are taking the Michael on this one, they are laughing in the face of the victims of violence as they struggle, in fact beg a cop to attend their home post a robbery or assault. Ask yourself when did you last see a cop on the beat and I don’t mean a plastic plod/PCSO uniformed curtain twitcher either.
I say that ACPO must be done away with as private police forces are supposed to be illegal within the UK; I wonder how they are getting away with this anyway, who is covering this up and allowing it to happen? And why?
Perhaps elected top cops responsible to local people only would solve this problem, but something needs to be done as it cannot be right for a private company to dictate how OUR police are run.
SEX-swap and transvestite police officers are demanding better protection to ensure colleagues do not discover their secrets.
The *National Trans Police Association wants a new vetting system put in place so that transgender recruits do not have to reveal former identities when they join up and serving members are protected if they switch jobs.
The association’s secretary, Detective Constable Al Smith of West Midlands Police, said it is calling for changes including the practice of taking recruits’ DNA to be done “more discreetly”.
The 50-strong association, which represents transgender, androgyne, intersex and cross-dressing officers, has called for a new approach to help the police service become an “employer of choice for trans people”.
An ‘androgyne’ in terms of gender identity, is a person who does not fit cleanly into the typical masculine and feminine gender roles of their society. ... WHAT?
Ha, Ha, LOL what is an ‘intersex’ officer - if there is only 50 of them we can do without them can we not?
I do not want cops being hampered by running mascara, bad hair days and broken nails, let’s just have cops, you know the big burly ones that you want to turn up when you call 999.

*NB: no relation to the Transport Police who do a difficult, respectable and highly commendable job.
Muslim pupils are being withdrawn from music lessons because some families believe learning an instrument is anti-Islamic. The move comes despite the subject being a compulsory part of the national curriculum.
While parents have legal rights to withdraw children from religious and sex education classes, no automatic right exists to pull them out of lessons such as music. One education expert said up to half of Muslim pupils were withdrawn from music lessons during Ramadan.
And The Muslim Council of Britain said music lessons were likely to be unacceptable to around ten per cent of the Muslim population in Britain.
One girl remains permanently withdrawn from the school's music curriculum, which consists of a government-backed project to learn instruments such as the violin.
So fundamentalist religious Muslims say Islam bans playing musical instruments but apparently it is OK for fundamentalist religious fanatical Muslims to fire AK47’s and plant bombs. How does that work?
Look - the National curriculum includes music - like it or lump it - simple.
