Let me start by saying I won’t refer to the death cult behind the recent terror atrocities in Europe, Africa and the Middle East by what it calls itself – that putrid gang of murderers is neither Islamic nor a state.
Earlier this week, French journalist Nicolas Hénin – who was held hostage by the psychopaths for ten months in Syria – revealed that they fear unity and love among communities far more than they fear bombs and airstrikes.
Copious amounts of that unity and love which so haunt the verminous death cult have been on fine display in Derbyshire since the Paris massacres a week ago.
On Friday, children from Barrow Hill Primary School baked cakes and went out on to the streets of Staveley to hand them out to strangers.
The youngsters wanted to carry out these random acts of kindness to prove that goodness still exists after they heard about the Paris attacks on the news.
Parisian Jonathan Da Silva, whose family lives in Barrow Hill, wrote on the school’s Facebook page: “This village makes me proud to be British, proud to be French.
“And I know that these children, our tomorrow’s hope, will bring back love and joy to the world.
“From France, thank you very much Barrow Hill Primary School.
“You can be proud of you.”
And then there are all the Derbyshire people who have taken to social media to show their solidarity with victims of terrorism; who have flocked to town halls to write messages of support in condolence books; who have stood silent to remember the innocents.
I even took a call from one Derbyshire chap who wanted to know if he could give blood for those still fighting for their lives in hospital in Paris.
I gave him a number for the National Blood Service; I hope he finds a way to help in the way he wants to help.
Meanwhile, Derbyshire’s Muslim leaders have condemned the Paris atrocities and insisted jihadists do not represent Islam.
In a joint statement, Chesterfield MP Toby Perkins and the Chesterfield Muslim Association said: “The perpetrators of these terrorist acts are not Muslims – they are people who are abusing the name of Islam to promote their own violent agenda.
“True Muslims know Islam to be a peaceful religion and both Toby Perkins and the Chesterfield Muslim Association jointly condemn these acts of terror and call on all our peoples to work together to further peace and understanding across the community and across the world.”
I spoke to one Muslim living in Derbyshire this week who said he fears a backlash against him, his family and his friends as a consequence of the death cult’s heinous crimes.
This cannot and must not happen – and I’m pleased to say Derbyshire Constabulary hasn’t informed us of any anti-Muslim hate crime in the last week.
So there we have it: unity and love – the things the death cult fear most – thriving in Derbyshire after inconceivable horror overseas.
Well done, people of this amazing county, for playing your part in scaring the worthless scumbags.
