Did anyone catch that most impressive grilling given to Iqbal Sacranie by Kay Burley on Sky News at lunchtime [no link as yet]? It seems the 'Muslim leaders' are falling over themselves to appear in the media to "deplore" these latest attacks. Sacranie was representing the Muslim Council of Britain even though he resigned the post of General Secretary in 2006. He was replaced by Muhammad Abdul Bari but it seems the MCB consider Sacranie a more personable spin mullah. Sacranie began the interview by denouncing the attacks as being alien to Islam and continued into the usual patter. He was looking quite confident, even quite self assured. Until, that is, Ms Burley ruthlessly unleashed the ambush. It was swift and bold; it was akin to a Ricky Hatton liver-punch. To paraphrase the conversation: Burley: "We know you denounce the terror attacks, Mr Sacranie. But weren't you one of those people who praised the fatwa on Dr Salman Rushdie?" Sack (with a priceless look of surprise and discomfort on his face): "That was before the formation of the MCB." Burley: "Yes, it was before the formation of the MCB. So now is the time to make your position clear, for the record. Do you support the fatwa that was placed on Dr Salman Rushdie?" Sack: "We did not bring the fatwa against Salman Rushdie. We are not Iran. Burley: "So do you, or not, support the fatwa that was placed on Salman Rushdie?" Sack: "We did not order that fatwa. Iran ordered the fatwa. We are not a group of individuals who order fatwas." Burley: "So you don't support the fatwa then?" Sack: "We were not the people to bring the fatwa." Burley: "So, just to clarify, you are saying that you don't support the fatwa?" Sack (fighting to suppress apoplexy): "Thank you." Burley: "Thank you, Mr Sacranie." The look Burley gave to the camera said it all. Well done to Sky and Ms Burley for raising the issue in this politically correct hell.
