DhimmiExpo 7/7

Via Islamic Republic News Agency and The Independent:
London Mayor Ken Livingstone Monday launched Europe's biggest exhibition to “combat the myths, misconceptions and misunderstandings that Britain is somewhere good”. The event, entitled DhimmiExpo, will take place at Alexandra Palace a year after the 7 July bombings and consist of a series of exhibitions, lectures, debates, films, stand-up comedy and workshops designed to vilify Britain’s cultural heritage.

Organisers plan to invite leading proponents of the Caliphate to commemorate the deaths of the suicide bombers on the anniversary of their attacks. It is hoped that the event will help to convince the wider community of their ultimate fate as a people destined to live under Sharia law.

The exhibitions will be divided into three zones: "Discredit Britain", which will feature prominent members of the self-loathing left-liberal elite; "British Colonialism", which traces Britain's history as the most evil power the world has ever seen; and "Britain and the World", which highlights the unforgivable support given to America and Israel. Seminars praising jihad and the Caliphate and denouncing democracy will also take place.

The event has received the backing of numerous Muslim groups as well as the al-Jazeera news channel and the Greater London Authority.

Anas Altikriti, the director of DhimmiExpo, said, “The hope is that all kinds of people will visit and go away thinking about the inevitable universal supremacy of Islam.”

Ihtisham Hibatullah, from the Muslim Association of Britain, the group that devised the project, said the exhibition would be a celebration. "It will be a glorious Muslim festival to make the infidels quake in fear at the majesty of the One True Religion.”

The exhibition aims to draw Arab businesses to the capital by encouraging trade from 54 Islamic countries in a dedicated financial conference.

Mayor Livingstone said that DhimmiExpo offers a “unique opportunity for me to pander to people whose beliefs I should find utterly abhorrent but choose not to. Blah blah blah community relations going forward.”

"In addition, it will enhance London's reputation for cultural and creative diversity whilst promoting London to key businesses and decision makers as a business and tourist destination," he said.

If it is successful, it is hoped DhimmiExpo could become an annual event in London.

More, more, more.

Over at Jihad Watch Hugh Fitzgerald provides a list of questions that the curious Infidel might wish to ask the 'exhibitors'. He also provides some good sources.

I am undecided as to whether or not I should visit the Expo in an Israel football shirt. That would please the Muslim Brotherhood, I mean, the MAB. How long would it take the police to nick me if I did?
