British students were threatened with a “racial discrimination note” if they decided to skip a field trip on Islam. The note would be a permanent stain on their school records.
Families were told to pay £5 per child for the Explore Islam trip.
Field trips are generally a fun break from the ordinary school routine. But for some British students, not going on a field trip could have put a dark stain on their permanent records.
In a letter sent to students at Littleton Green Community School, students and parents were warned that skipping a religious education field trip would result in a “racial discrimination note” on their permanent records.

In the days of Christianity, people usually refused to go along with pure evil out of moral revulsion. Now that the dominant religion is political correctness, this is no longer the case. For example:
A female genital mutilation (FGM) campaigner was left in tears after an experiment intended to assess the impact of political correctness on the fight against cutting saw 19 people sign a fake pro-FGM petition within 30 minutes.
Leyla Hussein, 32, who suffered female genital mutilation as a child, approached shoppers in Northampton with the petition, which argued that as FGM was part of her culture, it should be protected.
During the 30-minute experiment, 19 people signed the petition and just one refused – a result Hussein blamed on the all-pervading culture of political correctness.
Disapproving of the practices of nonwhite cultures is considered racist. As has been drilled into our heads our whole lives, nothing is worse than being racist — not even sexually mutilating children.
According to a recent study by UNICEF, as many as 30 million girls are at risk of being subjected to FGM within the next decade, including 24,000 in the UK.
The health effects of FGM range from severe bleeding and problems urinating to cysts, infertility and complications in child birth.
It has also been linked to deaths, most recently that of Soheir Fawzy, a 13-year-old Egyptian girl who died earlier this year after undergoing FGM.
Under liberalism, there is no right and wrong. There is only correct and incorrect, as defined on an ad hoc basis by the pointy-headed screwballs who run the education, media, and government pillars of the moonbat establishment. Consequently, everything is permitted, at least potentially.

UK Muslims say Prime Minister David Cameron should be lauded for his consistent attacks on ‘Islamophobes’ while painting a rosy picture of Islam
Over the last decade meetings with senior ministers in the previous Labour administration around Islamophobia or anti-Muslim prejudice literally led nowhere. The focus was extremism, extremism and extremism.
TellMamaUK* Over the last 3 years, there have been problems, though there has been an important re-shifting of the relationship between the Government and Muslim communities. Out has gone violent extremism just related to Muslim communities and in has come ‘tackling extremism,’ which includes Far Right and other forms of extremism.
* TellMamaUK lost its government funding for lying about ‘Islamophobic’ incidents: Muslim-hate-monitor-to-lose-backing.html
Out has gone groups that placed themselves as sole representatives of Muslim communities, and in has come a multitude of voices from Muslim communities. Out has also gone inaction about Islamophobia or anti-Muslim prejudice and in has come a consistency in dealing with this social phenomenon which Baroness Warsi stated in early 2011, had sadly passed the ‘dinner table’ test.
This change in position around anti-Muslim prejudice is clear through recent speeches by the Prime Minister and others. Take for example, David Cameron talking recently at the Eid-Ul-Adha celebration at 10 Downing Street. The full text of the speech can be found here and is well worth a read to reflect the change in position.
The Prime Minister makes clear the following: “We still have a huge battle fighting prejudice in our country, and I think perhaps particularly Islamophobia – people telling lies about your religion – is one that we have to face up to particularly strongly in our country. And it’s a time to remember that. It’s also a time to remember that welcoming people to our country of all faiths is something that has to go across every single part of life.”
Or take this position by David Cameron regarding misinformation circulated in his consitituency regarding the development of a local mosque. Or take a range of projects that ministers within his Government have approved and will be looking to approve.
What the Prime Minister needs right now, is people who believe in pluralism, equality and fairness in our society and communities to stand with him; to support his vision of a country where hate should be challenged through existing systems and structures and where every community has a role and a part to play in that future. We say to the Prime Minister, this is a vision that draws all people towards a modern, stronger and more competitive Britain. Thank you!
It’s odd because no politician ever, at least in the mainstream political parties, has ever uttered a word about another dramatically important issue affecting British people’s lives much more profoundly than the country’s European membership.
I refer to the mass immigration, legal and illegal, of so-called economic migrants as well as political refugees and asylum seekers, genuine and bogus alike, that has inundated the country with a number of people from all over the world so large and so unmanageable that nobody knows exactly what it is.
I said it’s odd but in fact it isn’t. There’s a crucial reason why the decisions about mass immigration have been taken by the various successive governments from the post-war period to now without bothering to find out what the people actually wanted.
Because politicians know extremely well that the vast majority of the British population do not want this large-scale demographic experiment performed on their own skin, as all opinion polls clearly show.
Europe Committing Cultural Suicide By Giving Muslim Parasite Immigrants More Rights than Its Citizens
Disaster: Import an underclass, then give it with the free meal ticket the right to vote.
The right to vote is a key feature of the democratic order. This is so self-evident that one fears to state it. Now, a reason emerges to commit in favor of the sensible application of the principle. The reason is as stunning as it is threatening. This practice is now under attack by the multiculturalists and the Left.
The right to vote is the ability to decide a group’s future. True, this right is not limited to balloting. The concept assumes that a choice is offered. When the writer was young, the police came to herd voters to the local “Council House”. There one was to vote for Our Beloved Party. Thus, the right to vote deteriorated into an obligation to legitimize oppression. There was no right to abstain or to vote “wrong”, that is for the “Class Enemy”, and against the Soviet “Camp of Peace”.

Europe is Under No Obligation to Accept these Muslim Parasites from Africa. Doing So is Cultural Suicide.
When obvious remedies are difficult to implement.
The more crucial a subject, the more myths will shroud it. Pretentions, lies, and mindless conventions make it difficult to discuss such matters sensibly. Even more difficult is to avoid curses for crossing an arbitrarily red line that the sanctimonious exploit. The “refugee” crisis in the Mediterranean is such a taboo subject. Unless, of course, that one says what is “proper”, in which case, the pre-programmed answers make it superfluous to address the matter…
To begin, we need to admit that –with the partial exception of the Syrians- we are dealing with a misnomer. Most of those that try to enter “Europe” are not persecuted refugees. At least not in a way that fits the world-war provoked term which led to a right to refuge. The majority of those that wish to settle in Europe – or in other comparable locations- do not flee political persecution. If they would be genuine refugees, the number of the escapees would be much lower. Hard dictatorships close their borders -think of the “Iron Curtain”- to intimidate the discontented. Actually, numerous countries encourage departures while they refuse to readmit citizens that are rejected by their chosen hosts and that thereafter attempt repatriation.
Convincing motives are discernible behind the migration. However, these reasons are economic, meaning that no moral or legal obligation exists to accept such applicants. Immigration control does not contradict human rights; there is no ethical need to suspend sovereignty to allow settlement according to demand.

America isn’t the only country being fundamentally transformed out of existence. In Britain, liberal authorities are achieving this by facilitating massive welfare colonization by Muslims.Indications of how bad the situation has gotten already:
[T]he Department of Education revealed that is recruiting former agents of the British secret service, MI5, to investigate the alleged infiltration of British schools by Islamic extremists. The agents will form part of a new counter-extremism unit, established to investigate schools in which radical activity has been suspected. Speaking to the Sunday Times on September 29, Education Secretary Michael Gove said some schools are being “taken over” by Muslim hardliners in the hope of radicalizing pupils and staff. He also said he was determined to “weed out” schools whose practices do not conform to British values.
Good luck with that. “Islamophobia” is a criminal offense.
A … survey published by Lord Ashcroft Polls on September 1, showed that six in ten Britons thought immigration had produced more disadvantages than advantages for their country; only 17% thought the pros outweighed the cons. The biggest concerns were about migrants claiming benefits or using public services without having contributed in return.
But the British Government no longer represents the will of the people, so polls like this are moot.
In other news, a total of 186 Muslim inmates at three different prisons aresuing the British government, claiming their human rights were violated after tests confirmed that halal food being served to them contained pork meat. A total of 11,248 Muslim prisoners make up 13.1% of the jail population in Britain. The legal cases come amid fears of a growing “culture-of-being-compensated” among prisoners. More than £60 million ($97 million) was paid to criminals, prison staff and visitors to British jails over the past four years for prison-related incidents.
Muslims might be told, if you don’t like our prison food, stay the hell out of our country, or at least stop breaking our laws. But that would be Islamophobic.
Monstrous mega-mosques are arising throughout Europe to establish beachheads for radicalization of the welfare colonists, who reproduce several times faster than the local populations. If the process continues, Europeans will be a minority on their own continent within the century. When this tipping point is reached, their civilization will be erased, as has happened to every culture conquered by Muslims, going back to the early seventh century. Where Islamic armies failed for centuries, liberals will have succeeded by destroying Europe’s defenses from within.

Today, as I write, the English Defence League is marching in Tower Hamlets, East London. Police and law-makers have diverted the procession from its planned route that would have seen it march into the very centre of the borough and past the notorious East London Mosque (capacity 8000 and recently extended). Now it shall be largely a ‘static’ demonstration on the outskirts of the area. Over 500 EDL members are rumoured to be in attendance, and will be met by a counter-protest of up to 4,000 Leftists and Militant Muslims.
To mark the occasion, British newspapers, left and right, have trotted out the usual moth-ridden accusations. Most common of all is the habit of never mentioning the EDL without the libelous prefix ‘far-right’.
It’s never thus ”The English Defence League are holding a march”, it is the ‘The Far-Right English Defence League are holding a march…”. So commonplace is this trope that a foreigner would be forgiven for thinking The EDL is really called the FREDL.
But is the EDL really ‘far-right’, and if not then where does it sit on the political spectrum?
My answer would be that the EDL is on the ‘right’ for ‘left-wing’ reasons. Complicated and hard to jingoise as that is, it is considerably more accurate than ‘far-right’.
The internet definition of ‘far-right’ is –
“(of political views) reactionary; extremely conservative.”
Uneducated Liberals might think the first word applies here, but it doesn’t. The internet definition of ‘reactionary’ is –
“(of a person or set of views) Opposing political or social liberalization or reform.’
The social trends opposed by the EDL are those which imprison women, stone homosexuals, and go against every liberal reform England has ever known. In fact, if you feel like suggesting something on an EDL forum, perhaps ‘Anti-reactionary’ would be a good way to promote its mission in future.
When I say the EDL are ‘right-wing for left-wing reasons’, I mean that while the group is opposed to something ‘foreign’, that ‘foreign’ element has been chosen purely for its hostile attitude towards liberal society. The EDL are no more ‘far-right’ for doing this than British generations before them were ‘far-right’ for fighting the (equally foreign) Nazis.
(On a side-note, why is the EDL ‘far-right’ but Hamas isn’t? Or what about the vile populist Christine Kirchner or the gay-hating Fidel Castro? Why is liberal judgement so selective?)
Whatever you think of the EDL or its methods, to call them ‘far-right’ is a deliberate lie and Leftists only demean themselves by its circulation.

Eurabia made a deal with the devil. And now the devil is getting his due.
The EUroids imported 20 million Muslims, who came to Western countries with a ready-made model of society andgovernment (sharia), which they believe to be superior to Western law, and they are violaently agitiating to institute it in Europe (and beyond).
Islamic Jew-hatred is a central tenet of Islam. And no matter how much ass-kissing Jewish groups do, no matter how much inter-faith dialogue they submit to, no matter how many Jews Jewish leaders throw under the bus (like myself), it doesn’t matter. Islamic supremacists don’t care. They mean to subjugate, oppress and destroy the Jewish people and their tiny homeland. And the Europeans signed off on this genocidal pact before the six million they slaughtered were fully counted.
Jews must leave Europe. Leave Europe to the savages.
Time to pay our respects to what was, and for European Jews to move elsewhere?
Michel Gurfinkiel is in the tradition of the great French essayists who put the issues of the day squarely before the public. It is a bold thing to do, especially when the subject under discussion is the fate of the Jews.
“You Only Live Twice” argues that, in the relatively short term, Jews are likely to have left Europe. The Jewish contribution to European civilization has been “a crowning glory of the human spirit,” but now the majority of European Jews and also those non-Jews who are paying attention to the march of history “insist that catastrophe may lie ahead.” The causes of this coming catastrophe are already evident to Gurfinkiel, and they tend toward an unhappy ending. In any case, the wise will not linger, awaiting certain submission. The time has come to pay our respects to what was once but is no more, and for Jews to move elsewhere as they have done through so many centuries.
In the aftermath of the Holocaust, Europeans adopted the phrase “Never Again,” implying shame for the perpetrators and at least a shading of guilt for the many who had stood by and taken no notice. For some years, survivors of the Nazi genocide, along with Jewish refugees expelled from the countries of the Middle East, were able to remake their lives everywhere across the continent. This was all too good to last.
Since 2000 in France alone, as Gurfinkiel notes, 7,650 anti-Semitic incidents ranging from petty insults to brutal racist murders have been reported, and this statistic ignores many more incidents that are known to have occurred but were not reported to the authorities. Things have come to the point where the chief rabbi of France advises Jews not to wear a kippah in the street because it makes them recognizable as Jews. “Never” has dropped out of the slogan of solidarity, leaving “Again” to stand on its own.

Anti-Muslim/Anti-Multiculturalism backlash is gripping Germany in a big way.
Video (German) has no subtitles in English, but translation is below:
(In Germany) Nothing is as frowned upon as “xenophobia.” Only evil people full of hatred in the heart have anything against foreigners. Is it not?
But deep down inside you have ever wondered: What do they really want here?
These are NOT asylum seekers! Most are only here because here because of the generous handouts, i.e., social assistance, and free health care. Not to mention the free money from wealthy Europeans that lets them live better doing nothing all day than a whole day spent working in their native countries.
Is truly perverse that we welcome these parasites, not to mention criminals who rob, rape and murder. And as their numbers increase, so does the violence.
European politicians try to convince us that it is our moral duty to make our countries open to unrestricted immigration because of “human rights” and “our historical responsibility”.
In Germany, it is because of the Holocaust. In France and England, it is colonialism. In the United States, slavery, etc.
And what is the real reason for the mass immigration? The international bankers and their henchmen, the politicians, want to replace the European nations with a mixed culture and national identity-free people to build a perfect system of exploitation: the “New World Order.”
Politics and high finance work hand ind hand. We will become prisoners in our own countries. Victims of our “humanity,” our misunderstood tolerance of intolerance. And in the end we will all disappear when it goes on like this.
By their sheer numbers, the foreigners are destroying European societies. In 2011 alone, ONE MILLION PEOPLE came to Germany, mainly from the “Third World and Muslim countries.” In Athens live over TWO MILLION (mainly Muslim) illegal immigrants.
The most common first name of male newborns in almost all major European cities is Muhammad.
If it continues, there will be as many foreigners as locals living in the European countries in the year 2040.
Europe’s future? Third world/Muslim immigrants come from filth and crime and have little or no education, yet we are forced to tolerate their abhorrent conduct and archaic/barbaric religious customs.
Today, it is bad enough that our schools and institutions are no longer allowed to serve pork. Tomorrow, Sharia will be introduced. And we will be forced to comply.
If you go to Saudi Arabia and other Muslim countries, you are forced to comply with their rules and customs.
Europe is being transformed into a caliphate. The goal here is to destroy Europe and Europeans with mass immigration.
Recently, the German Bundestag has approved the use of armed forces in the interior, in the case of “catastrophic conditions.” Under EU law, “insurgents” should be shot. (But they aren’t). These measures are not taken about because politicians are afraid of the millions of foreigners in our countries.
This is exactly what is happening: We are displaced, so we must be replaced. German politicians speak openly of the “dilution of the German people” and believe that “Europe needs more diversity.” Sarkozy urged the French to be more multicultural, because otherwise they “would get trouble.”
You are not crazy if you feel there are foreigners everywhere. You are not hateful, if you notice that many foreigners do not comply with our rules. And you are not a racist if you want the foreigners go back to their own countries.
“Turkey is for the Turks.” Why must Germany also be for the Turks?
The slogan of the biggest Turkish newspaper “hürryiet” is “Türkiye türklerindir” (Turkey for the Turks) It’s time to get out of Germany and go home -to Turkey. Where welfare benefits are just for the Turks from Turkey.

As I wrote in my post ‘Muslim Social Terrorism’, the most significant consequences of allowing Muslims to reside in the free world are not political, but social. The vague (and over-advertised) issue of Muslim ‘terrorism’ is, in-truth, likely to affect no more than 2-3% of Western citizens, and of these, most will live in major cities and so be already accustomed to the risks involved.
The social tragedies enabled by Islamic immigration are much more frequent and (for me) just as morally offensive as explosions on a subway.
Of all these social tragedies, perhaps the most widespread and horrific has been the ‘Muslim rape-wave’, also known as the ‘Rape-Jihad’; a phenomenon that has traumatized thousands of European and other non-Muslim women across the European Union.
There is no way I can think of to sugar this pill. In every Western European country, innocent women have been raped (on a massive scale) for ideological reasons. Females of all ages (including mothers and minors) have been subject to indescribable defilement by the worst human elements the earth has yet produced.
Although it predates the attacks, this project accelerated rapidly after 9/11 and the subsequent mainstreaming of Islamist thought in Muslim communities. By 2010 at the latest, the word ‘epidemic’ was being openly used in conservative journals. As things stand now we should have no qualms about using the term ‘rape war’.
And these rapes are not the ‘lesser’ kind of rape (whatever Kenneth Clarke may have meant by that). They are typically angry affairs; sex mixed with assault. In many cases, should the victim have wandered alone into a Muslim ghetto, the rape will involve many different men (from the very young to the very old) and will leave the victim with severe internal injury and blood-borne infection.
In other cases, an initially willing female, after having had sex with a Muslim for the first time, will be plied with sedative drugs (especially highly addictive benzodiazepines) in order to make her more likely to agree to future sex, this time with paying associates of the original male. Such a process is known in the UK as ‘grooming’ and is estimated to have affected thousands (yes, thousands) of girls (predominantly those from broken backgrounds – orphans, runaways, those in social care etc…) across the country.
In Oxford, the green, ancient home of Anglo-Saxon learning, a group of young girls (all white English) from local care homes fell prey to a network of Pakistani pimps and sexual opportunists. In one case, reported in detail during the trial of the offenders last year, an 11 year old girl was lured to addiction on both alcohol and tranquilizers. By her own estimates she was penetrated by more than five men an evening, often as she travelled in and out of consciousness. According to the BBC, on one occasion she vomited repeatedly over the side of the bed during intercourse, but even this didn’t grant her any mercy. She was quickly cleaned and prepared for the next Muslim in line.
After many weeks of this process, the same girl was branded (using a heated pin) with an ‘M’ for Mohammad; not the Prophet, but the name of her new Muslim ‘owner’. She later (aged 12) became pregnant by this same tormentor, and was forced to have a backstreet abortion using crude and disgusting implements. She would only escape fully after turning 15, having endured four long years of incarceration and medieval torture.
Although it is a Europe-wide project, the main focus for the Rape-Jihad in recent years appears to have been Scandinavia.
The countries of Scandinavia have long pursued some of the most senseless immigration policies in the EU area. As a direct result of these, prospective Muslim colonists are increasingly choosing Nordic countries over traditional settlement targets like England and France. The social cost of this has already been appalling. Daniel Greenfield wrote the following (harrowing) summation of the situation in Sweden in Frontpagemag:
“Sweden now has the second highest number of rapes in the world, after South Africa, which at 53.2 per 100,000 is six times higher than the United States. Statistics now suggest that 1 out of every 4 Swedish women will be raped.
In 2003, Sweden’s rape statistics were higher than average at 9.24, but in 2005 they shot up to 36.8 and by 2008 were up to 53.2. Now they are almost certainly even higher as Muslim immigrants continue forming a larger percentage of the population.
With Muslims represented in as many as 77 percent of the rape cases and a major increase in rape cases paralleling a major increase in Muslim immigration, the wages of Muslim immigration are proving to be a sexual assault epidemic by a misogynistic ideology.”
Now, I am aware of the dangers of believing statistics from Sweden on this issue. Sweden has a notorious problem with militant feminism and what constitutes ‘rape’ in Stockholm may not even earn a reprimand in New York and London. Nevertheless, even if we adjust the statistics to focus exclusively on the most sensible definition of rape – ie. unwanted penetrative sex – then all Nordic countries still have a social crisis the scale of which is bewildering.
ii. Why do they do it?
The way Muslims rationalise their predation on women is as follows:
Because Western women wear short skirts and mingle with people of the opposite sex, they consequently have no virtue. They are slags, who, by their behaviour define themselves as sex-objects. Consequently, for someone to rape or molest them is no more than their behaviour invites and probably something they’ve experienced before. It may even be something they secretly desire.
This logic has a rough equivalent in a phrase used by violent pimps: “You can’t rape a prostitute’. By this, the pimp means that ‘his’ women have fallen voluntarily (by their being prostitutes) through a moral floor and that since they have done so, they have lost the right to complain about certain types of treatment.
While Pimps imagine this moral floor to have been broken by the woman allowing herself to be penetrated for money, the Muslim believes it to be broken by the wearing of high heels, or by making innocent jokes about sex with male friends.
As a woman then, you won’t fully know that you’ve ‘fallen’ in a Muslim’s estimation, until he’s forcing himself on top of you.
I am not a feminist. I do retain the unfashionable belief that men have a responsibility to protect women. Consequently, I believe we all deserve a portion of the blame for this scandal. Our reaction to date has been timid and inadequate. If one (just one) Afghan Muslim Woman was raped by a European soldier today, we would lose a hundred troops in the cause of her avenging. Yet thousands upon thousands of European women have already been traumatized by the enemy in our own countries and we have failed to respond.
The guilt may be theirs, the shame is our own.

Look across the pond, Americans, the Islamic Republic of Europe is already here. What are you doing about it?
The most persistent myth of the Western Dhimmi narrative is that Muslims are a minority and must receive special protection and accommodation. But Muslims are not a minority. There are 1.5 billion Sunni Muslims worldwide, outweighing Catholics as the next largest religious faction at 1.1 billion and Hindus at 1 billion. They are still a minority of the overall population in Western countries, but a demographically trending majority.
Sultan Knish (h/t RF) In the UK more people attend mosques than the Church of England, that makes Muslims the largest functioning religious group there. Mohammed was the most popular baby name last year, ahead of Jack and Harry. In France, in this generation, more mosques have been built than Catholic churches and in southern France there are already more mosques than churches. Mohammed-Amine is the most popular double name, ahead of Jean-Baptiste, Pierre-Louis, Leo-Paul and Mohammed-Ali.
In Belgium, 50 percent of newborns are Muslim and empty Belgian churches are being turned into mosques. The most popular baby name is Mohammed and of the top 7 baby names, 6 were Muslim. A quarter of Amsterdam, Marseilles and Rotterdam and a fifth of Stockholm is already Muslim. The most popular baby name in Amsterdam, Utrecht, Rotterdam and The Hague is… Mohammed.
Europe’s Muslim population doubled in the last generation, and is set to double again. By 2025, (a decade and a half away), a third of all births in the EU will be Muslim. The demographic writing is already on the wall. A third of Muslims in France and Germany are teenagers or younger, as compared to a fifth of the native population. A third of Muslims in the UK and Belgium are under 15 versus a fifth of the native population. Counting all age groups, they’re a minority. But in generational demographics, Muslims are swiftly becoming a majority.
Looking at these numbers it is hard to argue that Muslims are a minority. They are not a majority at the moment, but majorities are not just a statistical snapshot, but a cultural and demographic trend. Countries are not defined by the past, or even by the present, but by the future. By the direction in which they are headed. And Europe’s future is a Muslim majority. Most European governments have accepted that and are acting on it. There may currently be more warm European bodies than Muslim ones, but the culture is being steered by the assumption of an Islamic future.
America is not nearly as vulnerable to the Muslim demographic bomb, because it is less socialist and more multicultural. It also has no former Muslim colonies, like England or France. Or at least it didn’t have any before. But the liberation of Iraq has touched off a swarm of ‘refugees’ moving to the United States. While some of them are Christian, the majority are Muslim. By law we are obligated to accept 5,000 a year. The 2008 target for Iraqi immigration was 12,000, far more than most of the former Soviet Union combined. Not significant numbers alone, but they are part of a bigger picture.
In 2005, almost 100,000 Muslims became legal residents of the US. In 2009, it was 115,000. And the numbers continue to rise each year. That means that already they make up around 10 percent of immigrants to the US. The number of Egyptian and Syrian immigrants has more than doubled since 9/11. The number of Turkish immigrants has more than tripled. The number of Afghanis has tripled. Somalis have gone up from nearly 3,000 to nearly 14,000 a year. Pakistan hit a high of 21,000 in 2009 and Saudis are up by 50 percent.
SWEDEN (English begins at 0:10)
Not nation shattering numbers in and of themselves, but let’s look at them in relation to birth rates.
The United States birth rate was 13.5. Pakistan’s birth rate is 24.1. Egypt’s birth rate is 24.6. The Saudi birth rate is 19.3. The Afghani birth rate is 37.3. The Somali birth rate is 42.7. What this means is that we are importing Muslim immigrants with a birth rate that twice or even three times higher than our own.
The United States birth rate is already inflated by its own immigrants, including large numbers of Latinos and the million plus Muslims already in the US, so the baseline numbers are even worse. But these numbers are bad enough, as the social services departments of Amsterdam or Malmo could tell you. We are not importing 115,000 Muslims a year. No, we’re importing as many as 2,500 Muslim babies a year into our demographic pool.
Compare that to the 25,000 Korean immigrants in 2009, from a country with an average birth rate of 8.5. Increase Korean immigration fivefold until they outnumber the annual number of Muslim immigrants, and you still aren’t even importing a 1,000 babies a year. A thousand Somali immigrants are the demographic equivalent of 5,000 Korean immigrants because the Somali birth rate is 5 times the Korean birth rate. The 25,000 Korean immigrants represent a mere 212 babies a year, but the 14,000 Somalis represent 600 babies a year.
This is how demographic suicide creeps up on nations. And this also is an incomplete picture. The Korean-American intermarriage rate is at over 50 percent. There are no statistics for Somali intermarriage rates in the US, but Muslims do not leave their religion upon marriage. And in Sweden and Norway, Somali intermarriage rates are very low. Which means the Little Mogadishus growing across the United States are not going anywhere. And given time, there will be a Little Mogadishu in your city too.
Despite all this Mohammed won’t be the most popular baby name in the United States any time soon. But a Muslim population boom will sneak up on us. It already is. Yet population-wise Muslims are a minority. But are they really?
There are two kinds of minorities. The first kind come from countries where they were a minority or under foreign rule. The Irish, Jews, Tibetans, Armenians and Norwegians are all examples of that. The second kind of minority isn’t really a minority at all. This ‘minority’ immigrates from countries where they are the ruling majority. They are not persecuted and are not escaping anything except living in a failed state.
These “Majority Minorities” are designated as minorities by political correctness, but they don’t think of themselves as minorities or act like minorities. They are used to being the dominant culture and when they are hostile, it is not because of a sense of persecution, but xenophobia. While they are labeled minorities– they actually behave like majorities.
They are acting like the majority culture– which in their minds they are. Muslims are “Majority Minorities”, who act with all the entitlements and privileges of a majority. When Somali cabbies refuse to carry airport passengers with duty free liquor or almost half of Muslims in the UK want Sharia law – they are behaving as if they already are the majority entitled to force their culture, their law and their religion on the minority. And in their eyes, we are the minority, because they have no cultural tradition of how to be minorities.
The Irish, the Jews and African-Americans have a cultural memory of being persecuted that they retain in song and story. But Muslims have rushed to wipe away the shame of briefly living under European colonialism by casting back to the golden age when they were the oppressors, reviving the Caliphate and lashing out violently at even the slightest criticism of their religion.
Muslims in America and Europe are still numerical minorities, but they act like majorities. And they are doing everything they can to become majorities. Treating them like minorities is a mistake, that Europe has already come to regret and that we are only beginning to learn the folly of. Muslims can either be a minority or a majority. If they choose to act like a majority, imposing their culture, religion and worldview on others– then they should be treated like one.

Sadly, but not unexpected, left wing fascist counter-protesters caused bloodshed, when rocks, bottles and cans were hurled at EDL supporters during the march.
Sir Winston Churchill was a brave young soldier, a brilliant journalist, an extraordinary politician and statesman, a great war leader and British Prime Minister, to whom the Western world must be forever in his debt. He was a prophet in his own time and was, without doubt, one of the greatest men of the late 19th and 20th centuries. He died on 24th January 1965, at the grand old age of 90 and, after a lifetime of service to his country, was accorded a State funeral.
“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.
A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.
Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome…”

Tommy Robinson, the leader of the English Defence League, receives numerous death threats via Twitter. When he retweeted some of them, the Bedfordshire Police took prompt action to track down the threatening tweeters, arrest them, and prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law…
A few days ago Tommy tweeted the following:
@bedspolice just called me to say don’t retweet death threats or I’d be arrested as they cause people distress? I ****ing kid u not!
A Facebook post on the same topic was put up at about the same time, but before I could acquire a copy of the text, it was gone. Not only was the post removed, but the entire group was taken down by Facebook.
Tommy can’t show the world all the death threats that have been made against him on Twitter, but Vlad Tepes lives in Ottawa, and is therefore less at risk of being arrested. He has compiled a brief selection of some of the threatening tweets aimed at Tommy.
Note: Obscene language is used in any number of these tweets:

Two English Defence League leaders have been released on police bail after they were arrested by police in Central London. Tommy Robinson had shouted, “You are enforcing Sharia law” at officers who held him on suspicion of obstructing police as he tried to enter the London borough of Tower Hamlets.

SKY News (h/t Maria J) The EDL had previously announced plans to walk through part of the capital before gathering outside Woolwich Barracks, near where Drummer Rigby was hacked to death in broad daylight. But the Metropolitan Police put conditions on the march which demanded that it ended at Old Palace Yard, opposite the House of Lords.
As well as planning to lay flowers in memory of Drummer Rigby, Mr Robinson and EDL co-leader Kevin Carroll, who was also arrested, were walking to raise money for a young girl fighting cancer.
Sky Correspondent Tom Parmenter said: “They’d walked six miles when they were arrested outside Aldgate East underground station. ”Police had been tracking the walk across London and had regularly spoken to them about their route. ”The EDL leaders had been warned not to go past a large mosque in east London or enter the borough of Tower Hamlets.
“As they approached the boundary of the borough they were warned again by officers who told them they may be arrested.” Mr Robinson and Mr Carroll repeatedly asked if they would actually be arrested before another man approached the pair and assaulted Mr Carroll.
Parmenter said: “As police officers tried to deal with the situation the EDL leaders continued to walk forward and then a senior policewoman placed the pair under arrest.” The pair, who were wearing T-shirts bearing the words “support our troops”, were led into a police van in handcuffs.
At the start of the walk in Hyde Park, Mr Robinson had said: “There’s two of us doing a charity walk. ”They’re (police) saying it (Tower Hamlets) is a Muslim area but to me there is no Muslim area, there are just areas of my capital city that if I have to walk from A to B then you have to walk through.”
Scotland Yard said the conditions were imposed because of fears the march and the gathering would result in “serious public disorder” and it had warned that a breach would lead to arrest. (They were afraid Muslims would act like the savages they are and start slashing people in the street)
The only thing they should have arrested Tommy for is his shorts! LOL
The statement claimed “negotiations” for their release were taking place and that the pair still hoped to walk to Woolwich to lay flowers. Mr Robinson earlier replied to a tweet asking him what weather he was expecting for Saturday: “ill be in a cell by lunch time so won’t matter. Ha ha”

This Bitch Refused Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer Entry into Britain…Because They Speak the Truth About Evil islam
Posted on | June 27, 2013
Meet the hideous creature who banned Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer from England: British Home Secretary Theresa May, a disgrace to her office, to her nation and to every British citizen who ever lived. On June 25, this deplorable stain on the reputation of a once honorable people “personally directed that [Geller] should be excluded from the United Kingdom” because it is believed that Geller would “foment or justify terrorist violence . . . provoke others to terrorist acts . . . foster hatred,” etc. Robert Spencer writes of the ban:
We had planned to lay a wreath at a memorial to British soldier Lee Rigby, who was beheaded by Islamic jihadists on a Woolwich street on May 22. But it is not conducive to the public good in Britain to oppose jihad violence and Islamic supremacism.
British schoolgirls are being systematically gang-raped by Muslims and British soldiers are being hacked to death in the street by Muslims and yet this despicable gutless appeaser, Theresa May, thinks the way to solve the problem is to ban critics of Islam?
Neville Chamberlain was a heroic statesman by comparison.

“Piece of cake.”

If the patient is not dead, it certainly is Stage IV terminal.
Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer co-founded anti-Muslim group Stop Islamization of America.
They were due to speak at an English Defence League march in Woolwich, where Drummer Lee Rigby was killed.
A government spokesman said individuals whose presence “is not conducive to the public good” could be excluded by the home secretary.
He added: “We condemn all those whose behaviours and views run counter to our shared values and will not stand for extremism in any form.”
Sounds like the Home Secretary, The Right Dis-Honorable Theresa May, MP, is afraid to allow-in views that challenge her pathetic Dhimmitude, or the wretched Dhimmitude of the Cameron Government.
What are you so scared of, Terry? Words?
More from the story:
Keith Vaz, chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee, who had called for the bloggers to be banned from the UK, said: “I welcome the home secretary’s ban on Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer from entering the country. This is the right decision. The UK should never become a stage for inflammatory speakers who promote hate.”

Britain is in denial. There is no real public debate on a historic event that is transforming the country. Mention of it occasionally surfaces in the media, but the mainstream political class never openly discuss it. What is that historic event? By the year 2050, in a mere 37 years, Britain will be a majority Muslim nation.
The Commentator This projection is based on reasonably good data. Between 2004 and 2008, the Muslim population of the UK grew at an annual rate of 6.7 percent, making Muslims 4 percent of the population in 2008. Extrapolating from those figures would mean that the Muslim population in 2020 would be 8 percent, 15 percent in 2030, 28 percent in 2040 and finally, in 2050, the Muslim population of the UK would exceed 50 percent of the total population.
Contrast those Muslim birth rates with the non-replacement birth rates of native Europeans, the so called deathbed demography of Europe. For a society to remain the same size, the average female has to have 2.1 children (total fertility rate). For some time now, all European countries, including Britain, have been well below that rate. The exception is Muslim Albania. For native Europeans, it seems, the consumer culture has replaced having children as life’s main goal.
These startling demographic facts have been available for some time (see ‘Muslim Population “Rising 10 Times Faster than Rest of Society”’, The Times, 30 January 2009. Also the work of the Oxford demographer David Coleman). But on this historic transformation of the country there is silence from the political establishment.
Not everyone agrees with these demographic figures. Population projection, some say, is not an exact science. Perhaps the Muslim birth rate will drop to European levels.
But this seems to be wishful thinking. For years it was believed that Muslims would enter what is known as “demographic transition”, with European Muslim birth rates falling to native European levels. But that demographic transition has not happened. In Britain, for example, the Pakistani and Bangladeshi communities continue to have significantly higher birth rates than the national average, even after more than 50 years in the country.
Over the short term (a few generations) demographic forecasting is as scientific as any social science can be. Britain and the rest of Europe are in native population decline and European Muslim birth rates are up. If that trend continues, then the projection of a majority Muslim population in Britain is sound. Even the highly respected economist and historian Niall Ferguson accepts the figures.
Many British people find it hard to believe their country could become majority Muslim. After all, it was never what they wanted so why, in a democracy, should it be happening? But we’ve had such disbelief before. Back in the 60s and 70s, many people scoffed at the notion that London could ever be majority non-white. But today it is.
The fact is that the deathbed demography of native Britons has come up against increasing Muslim birth rates and the result is a classic Malthusian geometric increase in the Muslim population. As Malthus emphasised, populations increase geometrically, not arithmetically. Given two populations, one declining one increasing, within a few generations the geometric increase of one over the other can be substantial.
Why has the Muslim birth rate not fallen to native levels? Just as there may be consumerist-cultural reasons for the low birth rates of native Britons, there may be strong cultural reasons for higher Muslim birth rates. As the journalist Christopher Caldwell puts it: “Muslim culture is full of messages laying out the practical advantages of procreation. As the hadith saying has it: ‘Marry, for I will outnumber peoples by you.’”
Yassir Arafat understood the political power of high birth rates. The Palestinian population increased sevenfold in one generation from 450,000 in 1967 to 3.3 million in 2002. The wombs of Palestinian women, Arafat said, were the “secret weapon” in his cause. The Israeli government is very much aware of Palestinian demographics.
Population projections over the long term can be wrong. But for Britain, over the short term, whatever way you do the numbers, they all point in one direction: Britain will be a majority Muslim state by the year 2050.
The political and social consequences of all this will be significant. Britain’s traditional foreign policy, particularly regarding the US and Israel, would very likely change. In fact the US and Israel are already anticipating the consequences of a majority Muslim Western Europe.
Britain’s social landscape would also be changed. The Adhan, the Muslim call to prayer, would very likely be heard throughout most of Britain. The traditional iconic sights and sounds of the country would also change from church bell-towers to minarets. Very likely all of this would happen gradually but there can be little doubt that it will happen, and it would be perfectly democratic.
Given that such a historic change is taking place, the silence of the political class is curious, to say the least. Britain, until the 1950s, could trace its ethnic and cultural ancestry back thousands of years. In 1903, in Cheddar Gorge Somerset, the remains of a pre-historic man were found. Known as Cheddar Man, DNA tests on this almost 9000 years old skeleton showed that he has living descendents today, still in Somerset.
In fact, genetic studies show that the populations of the British Isles (and Western Europe) have been stable for millennia, giving the lie to the oft quoted liberal comment that “Britain has always been a country of immigrants.” That’s false. Until the mass immigration of the 1950s, Britain was ethnically homogeneous. (See Bryan Sykes’s Blood of the Isles.)
The former Conservative MP George Walden, considering the fears of his fellow MPs in discussing particularly Muslim immigration, wrote:
“I’d be so alarmed by the situation I’d do everything possible to suggest it was under control. It’s up to politicians to play mood music in a crisis, and up to the people to understand that there’s little else governments can do. The last thing they can say is that we face a threat to which we can see no end because it’s based on a clash of cultures. On the IRA we told the truth; on the Islamic problem, we lie.” (Walden, Time to Emigrate? p.120)
Back in the 60s and 70s, the British political establishment united in condemning Enoch Powell, not just as a racist but as being factually incorrect in his demographic predictions. Since then, the subject of immigration has split British politics between the truth-denying, but morally superior, political mainstream and the truth-telling legacy of the bogeyman Enoch Powell.
For good or bad, the history of the last 40 years has vindicated Powell on many issues and shown the political establishment to have been wrong. Some major figures on the liberal-left now acknowledge this fact.
David Goodhart, the founder of Prospect magazine, in his new book The British Dream, argues convincingly that he and others on the liberal-left got it wrong on immigration.
But they also got it wrong on democracy. The projection of a Muslim majority by the year 2050, coupled with the fact that the vast majority of the British people have consistently opposed large-scale immigration, post-war British politics must represent the greatest ever failure in democracy. If ever the “Iron Law of Oligarchy” were proved right, then it is post-war British politics that has done it.
The long stretch of Britain’s exclusively European identity is now coming to an end, yet the political class refuse publicly to discuss such a culturally transforming event. Why the silence from the politicians? Are they not proud of their achievement?
The answer is that the demographic projections of a majority Muslim Britain show the British political class to have been catastrophically wrong on multiculturalism and immigration, and they are genuinely afraid to admit it. The British political establishment cannot give the full truth about immigration.
The Patriotic identitarian youth movement, started in France, is spreading across Europe. An affiliate of the French group is already in Germany. Now another surfaces in the Netherlands – ‘Identitair Verzet.’ They’re not political parties, but rather cultural movements started by the ‘twenty somethings.’
Islam vs Europe The movement’s expressed goals are to protect the freedom and cultural heritage of the native people, including the family, the democratic government, to enforce a strict rule of law, to work against their country becoming a multi-ethnic society by limiting immigration and promoting cultural assimilation of admitted immigrants. They aim to promote entrepreneurship and economic growth by strengthening education and encouraging people to work, and limiting the numbers on welfare.
Recently, GI (or IG) in the Netherlands, closed down an islamic school over there, after it was learned that Muslim students at that school turned out to have been able to steal and look into national, official exams *before* the official exam date, causing a fierce debate in the media and many people, amongst them politicians of several parties, calling for the school’s closure – which IG did by simply putting a chain lock at the school’s fence.
Cartoon mocks political and religious leaders who kiss the feet of Muslim immigrants who are the cause of social, cultural, and political unrest, not to mention soaring crime and rape rates
Some of GI statements in the video below include: “We have discovered that we have roots, ancestors, and thus have a future”…. “Our legacy is our country, our blood, our identity”… “Power to youth… “Our lambda flags carried high.”… “The lambda, which adorned the shields of the Spartans, is our symbol.” “Bored by your cowardice, we will not shirk any fight or any challenge.”… “We are the 25 percent unemployment, social debt, the explosion of the multicultural society.”… “You do not tame us with a condescending look, with ‘young people’ jobs and a pat on the shoulder”. And finally: “Make no mistake. This is not just a manifesto. This is a declaration of war! “

Careful — this one could cause irony overload:
Marine Le Pen faces potential prosecution for branding Muslims in France as ‘like a Nazi occupation’.
The National Front chief risks being put on trial after members of the European Parliament’s judicial committee in Brussels voted to lift her legal immunity as an MEP [Member of the European Parliament].
Le Pen’s thought crime consisted of telling her supporters this:
“For those who like to talk about World War II, to talk about occupation, we could talk about, for once, the occupation of our territory.
“There are no armoured vehicles, no soldiers, but it is an occupation all the same and it weighs on people.”
As a consequence,
French prosecutors asked the EU last November to lift the her immunity as a lawmaker so she could be prosecuted for inciting racial hatred.
The European Parliament’s legal committee voted overwhelmingly yesterday that Le Pen could be charged and the full parliament is now expected to formally lift her protection in the coming weeks.
Taking it in the teeth from the authoritarian moonbats running Europe is a family tradition. Her father Jean-Marie Le Pen was stripped of his MEP legal protection so that he could face charges for holding incorrect opinions in 1998.
Thank you EU, for proving that Europe is indeed occupied by the modern equivalent of Nazis. In lieu of tanks and soldiers, they have imported hordes of Islamic welfare recipients to ensure their grip on power.
Under the real Nazis, at least there would still be French people; under the moonbats, they will be completely displaced by Muslims within a few generations.

Obama Calls for End to Catholic Education in Northern Ireland
Kathy Schiffer, Seasons of Grace Patheos.com 6/17/2013
Just two days after Archbishop Gerhard Müller, Vatican Prefect, speaking in Glasgow, Scotland, touted Catholic education as “a critical component of the Church”, President Barack Obama stood before a crowd of 2,000 young people this morning and called for an end to Catholic education in Northern Ireland.
“If towns remain divided,” said the U.S. President, “if Catholics have their schools and buildings and Protestants have theirs, if we can’t see ourselves in one another and fear or resentment are allowed to harden—that too encourages division and discourages cooperation.”
Obama, who arrived in Northern Ireland this morning to attend the two-day G-8 Summit at the Lough Erne resort in Enneskillen, made the disproved claim on Monday, speaking before an audience which included many Catholics…

How I love and admire Switzerland. Now more than ever.
A vast majority of the Swiss people, 78.5%, have yesterday voted in a referendum, approving the amendments to further restrict the asylum law in the country. All cantons of the confederation have been in favour.
“A big disappointment” commented the result Adèle Thorens, co-chairman of the Greens. “We did not expect to win, but we did not expect a similar result.” That the Greens are disappointed is a measure of how good the changes are, at least in relation to the rest of Europe.
The amendments to the asylum law, approved by parliament at the end of last September, are designed to accelerate the formal procedures, revoke the opportunity to apply for asylum in embassies, and no longer recognize conscientious objection as a reason for obtaining the status of refugee.
On the other hand they allow federal authorities to temporarily convert buildings, mostly military, into asylum seekers shelters, even without the consent of the cantons and the municipalities concerned. And they allow the possibility of opening centres for “problematic” asylum seekers.
The Swiss law on asylum had already gone through a series of progressively-restricting changes, all approved by the people.
It’s an easy prediction that, if every country in Western Europe were allowed a referendum on asylum and immigration, the result would be similar. It’s also easy to predict that no other country would go down the same route as Switzerland, a nation with historical direct democracy roots, exactly because the result would be similar.
Another poll, this in Holland and not a referendum but simply a public opinion survey, shows, in the words of Geert Wilders, that “The Netherlands has had enough of Islam”:
More than three quarters of the Dutch (77 percent) believe that Islam is no enrichment for our country. More than two-thirds – 68 percent – say that there is enough Islam in the Netherlands. It is striking that a majority of voters from all political parties (from PVV to VVD, CDA, D66, PvdA, SP and 50plus) share this view.
A poll conducted by the research bureau of Maurice de Hond (the Dutch equivalent of Gallup), commissioned by the PVV, among a representative sample of over 1,900 people also shows other striking results:
A majority of 55 percent favors stopping immigration from Islamic countries.
63 percent say: no new mosques.
72 percent favor a constitutional ban on Sharia law in the Netherlands.
64 percent say that the arrival of immigrants from Islamic countries has not been beneficial to the Netherlands.
Nearly three-quarters – 73 percent – of all Dutch see a relationship between Islam and the recent terror acts in Boston, London and Paris.
MUSLIM LIES! The truth about the so-called ‘Islamophobic wave of attacks’ on Muslims after the brutal murder of a British soldier by a Muslim savage
Contrary to widespread Muslim propaganda about mosque attacks and assaults on Muslims, the vast majority of incidents recorded were anti-Muslim messages on Facebook and Twitter. (What a surprise, Muslims lying to get pity)
UK Daily Mail Claims that large numbers of Muslims were attacked in the aftermath of the Woolwich murder were questioned yesterday. A Government-funded project warned it had received more than 200 reports of Islamophobia following British soldier Lee Rigby’s murder, including attacks on mosques and Muslim women.
Project director Fiyaz Mughal said the figure represented a ‘substantial spike’ in hate crimes and warned of ‘a sustained wave of attacks and intimidation’ against Muslim communities across Britain.
But more than half of the incidents reported to the Tell Mama (Measuring Anti-Muslim Attacks) hotline related to offensive messages on Twitter, Facebook or online blogs, and only a tiny minority were physical attacks, it has emerged.
The claims raised questions about the way Tell Mama presented its figures in the days after Drummer Rigby’s murder, amid repeated calls for calm to avoid reprisal attacks. Mr Mughal said Tell Mama had received 162 reports of anti-Muslim prejudice in a 48-hour period.
Between four and eight incidents are normally reported daily to the charity, which receives £214,000 a year in funding from the Department for Communities and Local Government to provide data and reports on attacks against Muslims to combat hate crime.
A total of 212 incidents were reported between the Woolwich murder on May 22 and the end of last week. The attacks received widespread coverage alongside warnings from Mr Mughal of a ‘cycle of violence’ against Muslims which had led to ‘a sense of endemic fear’.
But while they included a petrol bomb attack on a mosque in Grimsby and in another incident in Essex where a man entered a mosque armed with a knife, only 17 cases involved individuals being physically targeted, a Sunday newspaper reported.
Six people had things thrown at them and most of the other 11 incidents related to attempts to rip off women’s headscarves or other items of Islamic dress.
More than half – 120 – related to offensive or abusive messages on social networking sites including Facebook and Twitter.
Contacted by the Daily Mail, Mr Mughal refused to discuss the figures, which he said would be independently checked by Birmingham University for a report next month. Any attempt to downplay the significance of verbal or online abuse was ‘an affront to hate crime reporting’, he said.
He was also challenged on the figures during an interview on Radio 4’s Sunday programme, when he conceded that the number of physical attacks was ‘quite small’.
He said: ‘We are talking mainly about generalised abuse, targeted comments said at a street level as well as targeted comments online. ‘So most of it is generalised abuse, thankfully it is not extreme violence.
‘This is not just an issue of attacks, physical attacks against individuals, this is about looking at the whole picture.’ In a statement on the Tell Mama website, the project said verbal and online abuse were ‘recordable hate incidents’ along with violent assaults and attacks on mosques.

Shortly afterward, British Prime Minister David Cameron said that “there is nothing in Islam that justifies this truly dreadful act”. London Mayor Boris Johnson added, “It is completely wrong to blame this killing on Islam.”
Now former Prime Minister Tony Blair has thrown in his two pence writing, “There is not a problem with Islam. For those of us who have studied it, there is no doubt about its true and peaceful nature.”
Blair previously claimed to have read the Koran every day, but apparently did not get as far as Chapter 5, which contains the verses that the Muslim murderers quoted after their butchery. And that’s understandable. Between his business deals with the Qatari royal family, which is behind much of the terrorism in the Middle East, the Kuwaiti royal family and the royals of the United Arab Emirates, it stands to reason that Tony probably never got past a few verses a day.
It’s easy to picture Tony Blair after a hot muggy day of clasping the greasy hands of Emirs and Sheikhs and trading his expertise for blood money, remembering to always eat with the right hand, not the left, returning to his five star hotel room, climbing into bed with his room Koran, flipping it open to the first chapter, reading, “In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful” and deciding that sounds peaceful enough, letting his head hit the pile of plush pillows and calling it a day. If Tony had made it as far as Chapter 2, where the Koran proclaims “Fight in the cause of Allah”, then the expert on Islam might have been able to entertain some doubts about its truly peaceful nature.
In what the Daily Mail describes as a “brave assault on Muslim extremism”, Blair writes, “There is not a problem with Islam… But there is a problem within Islam – from the adherents of an ideology that is a strain within Islam.”
It is rather sad that political bravery now consists of admitting that there may be some sort of problem within Islam and that it “is not the province of a few extremists… the world view goes deeper and wider than it is comfortable for us to admit.”Having exhausted all his courage by admitting that there is a problem somewhere within Islam, Blair bravely avoids admitting it by babbling about international affairs and the need to intervene in Syria.
Over in Afghanistan, Lee Rigby, the murdered soldier, might have been credited with a brave assault on “Muslim extremism”. Blair, writing a Daily Mail article that concedes that the problem may be a bit bigger than just that legendary tiny minority of extremists is hardly in that category.
Political courage now involves minimizing a grave threat less than all the other politicians who are also minimizing the grave threat. If the political consensus is that the mountain is nothing but a molehill, the brave pol courageously comes out and says that it’s actually a minor hill.
But let’s take Blair at face value for a moment. If there is a problem within Islam, then how can the problem not be with Islam? If Tony Blair had picked up a virulent intestinal parasite on a trip to Dubai, wouldn’t there be a problem both within Blair and with Blair? If there is an epidemic of drug abuse in the United Kingdom, isn’t there a problem both with and within the UK? Can there really be a problem within Islam that involves the willingness of millions of Muslims to kill in the name of Islam that is not also a problem with Islam?
The purpose of Blair’s meaningless distinction is to contend that it’s not a structural problem with Islam, but some sort of aberrant mutation brought on by Western colonialism. The trouble with that is that it requires a willful refusal to address the actual text of the Koran and the entire body of Islamic history.
Even if we were to assume that the problematic “strain” of Islam is not universally representative, who exactly is Tony Blair to declare it so based on his casual readings of a book that contains more death threats per page than the Daily Mail’s comments section?
Governments are not supposed to define the nature of religion or pick and choose between various sects. And indeed the legality of declaring that one form of Islam is legitimate and another is not has frequently been challenged.
It is the role of Muslims to argue amongst themselves what is and isn’t legitimate Islam. Such an argument is currently being waged in Syria using the theology of heavy artillery and death squads. Perhaps Tony Blair should think twice before involving the UK in such an Islamic religious debate or trying to hold one at home.
No government should be determining what is and isn’t legitimate Islam. What they should be doing is addressing threats emanating from Islam. There is no need to study the Koran in order to understand those threats. Muslim terrorists have been willing to patiently explain that they are killing us in the name of Islam. We can take them at their word or, like Blair and Boris, foolishly argue the doctrines of their religion with them.
If Tony Blair returned home from Kuwait City with the Swine Flu, the authorities would quarantine him without making any fine distinctions as to whether there was something wrong with Tony or within Tony. Like the nature of the one true Islam, that is a metaphysical question that governments are not qualified to answer.
If the UK quarantines foreigners and even natives with the Swine Flu, which has killed far fewer Brits than Islamic terrorism, should it not begin quarantining the even more dangerous strain of Islam?
It was Blair’s government that brought the Islamic plague to the United Kingdom in large numbers as part of a deliberate policy to forcibly transform the UK into a multicultural paradise. That policy has led to constant killings by the affected and the spread of strains of Islam to non-Muslims like the two Woolwich attackers.
There is no question that Islam is the problem. When men kill in the name of Islam, they are making a bloody statement that Islam is the problem. The only remaining question is whether to stop importing more strains of the terrorist disease before it’s too late or to waste more time splitting hairs on what exact percentage of the affected are truly dangerous.
1 in 4 British Muslims said that the 7/7 bombings were justified. If 1 in 4 visitors from Pakistan were infected with the Swine Flu, there would be an immediate ban on travel from Pakistan. It may be time to apply the logic of the quarantine to stop the Islamic strain that Blair brought to the United Kingdom.
Champion of British Liberty and Truth – Paul Weston – Exposes The islamic Takeover of British Media and Thought
An Example of Left-Liberal Treason
Paul Weston uses the latest news about prison jihad in Yorkshire to illustrate the treasonous behavior of the globalist elites who have rammed Multiculturalism down the throats of Britons.
An Example of Left-Liberal Treason by Paul Weston
There is a great deal of difference between times of peace and times of war. This may seem a very obvious statement, but I’m not sure left-liberals really understand the simplicity behind it.
Before mass immigration and multiculturalism so efficiently sickened the cultural, racial and body politic, it would have been impossible to blow up buildings, trains, planes and buses without first defeating the military defenders of the crushed nation. It would have been equally impossible to display foreign flags whilst loudly proclaiming they were destined to fly over government buildings; equally impossible that native soldiers should not wear their uniforms in public due to safety concerns; and equally impossible for soldiers in mufti to be murdered and decapitated in a city street just yards away from a military barracks.
We are clearly not living in a time of peace in Britain, but nor are we living in a time of war if war is judged in world-war historical terms. Perhaps it is best to say we are in a “sort of war” or a “low-level war” that, although hardly warranting the description “fully-fledged”, cannot be written off as unimportant and of no concern.
Britain’s security services have stopped Muslim terrorist atrocities like 7/7 each and every year since the last lot of Muslim jihadists slipped through the net and murdered and maimed people on our transport systems. Muslims routinely try to replicate this attack because Muslims consider themselves at war with us — be it as a claimed retaliation for our involvement in Iraq/Afghanistan, or simply because Britain is Koranically designated as part of the House of War not ruled by Muslims — as is their supremacist and divine right.
A similar low-level war has been waged against young indigenous girls in Britain, who have been chosen because they are the non-Muslim enemy and therefore deemed a permissible target of rape-jihad, which again is Koranically ordained. This monstrous evil has been going on for well over a decade, but has been deliberately covered up by the government, the police, the media and the social services.
And why did they cover it up? The reason, they tell us, is to ensure the laughable continuation of “community cohesion”, no matter there is no community cohesion in any geographical or societal area where Islam lives alongside non-Islam, or even where Sunni Islam lives alongside Shia Islam in the wider world.
But even citing community cohesion is disingenuous. If the left-liberal elites were truly concerned about cohesion, they would cover up all aspects of the failed ideology of multiculturalism, such as “right-wing” attacks on mosques, and not simply aspects where the consequences of Muslim barbarity reflect badly upon the Muslim perpetrators.
This explains why the BBC filled their studios with Muslim apologists after the 9/11 and 7/7 bombings, and also explains why the Times journalist Andrew Norfolk delayed breaking the news about Muslim gang-rapists on the grounds it would play into the hands of “far-right” groups who are clearly the enemy in the eyes of left-liberals.
Islam clearly considers itself at physical war with us, yet left-liberals consider themselves involved in an ideological war not with illiberal Islam, but with groups they label as far-right. This is a truly evil label when such people are in reality just normal, decent, liberal men and women whose only crime is to be indigenous white Christians who are understandably a tad miffed about their women being raped, their soldiers decapitated and their country and culture wrested from them by barbarian mono-culturalist Muslims.
So, we must admit we are in a low-level war, a clash of competing civilisations which, barely contained today, has the capacity to become an all-out civil war in the future as the internal enemy’s numbers grow. It is interesting therefore to take a look at who is on which side, and who has decided the racial/religious designation of the true enemy.
One side consists of Islam (not radical Islam, just Islam) and their left-liberal allies, the other side of indigenous Brits who would rather the country remained culturally, racially and religiously similar to the Britain they were born into, namely the Britain of their parents and grandparent’s generation.
Is it too provocative to suggest left-liberals have taken the Muslim side in this low-level war? I don’t think so. We have all seen and heard their reactions to the murder of Fusilier Lee Rigby, which was to essentially whitewash Islam and concentrate instead on defaming “right-wing” organisations such as the EDL and anybody else who had the temerity to associate Koran-quoting Islamic murderers with the political/religious/supremacist ideology of Islam.
We must not inflame and polarise opinion when it could result in “Islamophobia”, they tell us, yet they are more than happy to inflame and polarise EDLophobia it would seem, which is odd when the EDL exist purely as a reaction to Muslim violence. This perverse left-liberal alliance with Islam is particularly noticeable with regard to the BBC and The Guardian which both had the following to say about a particular event which occurred on Sunday last week.
First, the BBC:
Two prison officers have been taken hostage and attacked by three inmates at a maximum-security jail near York. The incident on Sunday at Full Sutton Prison in East Yorkshire lasted for four hours. A Prison Service spokeswoman said the staff received treatment for their injuries, which were not thought to be life-threatening.
The Prison Officer’s Association (POA) said it was aware of the “hostage incident”. Police are investigating. The POA told the BBC it was sending a national representative to the prison to determine exactly what happened. Steve Gillan, the POA’s general secretary, said: “Until the full facts of the incident are known we do not wish to comment further for fear of compromising any police investigation.
“We can confirm that officers sustained injuries and had it not been for the professionalism of prison officers dealing with this violent incident the outcome could have been worse.” The Prison Service spokeswoman said the incident started at 16:25 BST and ended at 20:40 “after staff intervened”. She would not confirm reports that one of the warders was held.
And The Guardian:
Police are investigating an incident at Full Sutton prison. A prison officer was held hostage and beaten at an east Yorkshire prison by inmates. The attack took place at Full Sutton prison on Sunday. A Ministry of Justice spokeswoman said: “An incident involving three prisoners took place at HMP Full Sutton on 26 May from 4.25pm and was successfully resolved at 8.40pm after staff intervened.”
The spokeswoman said on Tuesday that two officers were receiving treatment. She refused to comment further, saying the police were investigating. The Prison Officers Association said it was aware an officer had been held hostage and injured but it was still trying to ascertain the facts of the incident.
These stories, although relating to an incident two days ago, were taken from the front pages of their websites on Tuesday morning. Both left-leaning “news” organisations have had plenty of time to glean further information, but for such basic journalistic professionalism we have to turn to The Daily Mail, a newspaper routinely sneered at by left-liberals as being right-wing and not worth the paper it is printed on.
Three jailed Islamic extremists stabbed a warder and beat him for four hours after the prison imam called on them to pray for murdered soldier Lee Rigby, it was reported last night. The trio snatched the warder from E-wing at Full Sutton prison, near York, and held him hostage before stabbing him during a stand-off with guards.
The terrified victim, who is in his 30s, was locked in a cleaning room where he was also apparently beaten with mop handles and told he was going to die. The prison’s National Tactical Response Group were called and eventually managed to free him and he was taken to hospital with serious injuries.
A prison source told the Daily Mirror: ‘The fear was that the gang had somehow got hold of knives from the prison kitchen and they would attempt to behead him. ‘By the time the attack finished the officer was covered in bruises and blood. He feels very lucky to be alive. He was told they would kill him.’
The three prisoners were thought to have become enraged following a prison imam’s call for Muslim inmates to pray for soldier Lee Rigby, who was stabbed to death by extremists last week. Two of the attackers are believed to be an African-born fanatic and British man who converted to Islam while in prison.
Full Sutton Prison houses dozens of extremist prisoners and there has been recent concern about the spread of radical Islam behind its walls.
Why would the BBC and The Guardian not cover this story properly? The simple answer is that they have chosen to take sides in a war, regardless of whether the war is fully fledged or low-level, and the side they have taken is not the side that represents the interests of Great Britain or its people.
Or, put more simply, left-liberals have committed treason and continue to commit treason on an ongoing basis. They are not held to account because the government and the police are also committing treason, and the head of the government is David Cameron, a man who describes himself as a Conservative but who is, in reality, just another left-liberal traitor.

The word ‘backlash’ is a curious one to apply to the mood of English society following the events of last week. Nevertheless, the BBC, Daily Telegraph and numerous other media outlets invariably chose to label the disgust present in every patriotic soul these past few days, an ‘Anti-Muslim backlash’, as if it were a change of heart, or an irrational misunderstanding.
The word ‘backlash’ is usually employed when talking about something that has previously been over-praised. The television series ‘The Office’ for example was praised so much and so often, that within weeks of the final episode being broadcast, pop-culture scribblers began to predict a ‘backlash’ against it. For me this isn’t what we’ve seen over the past few days.
This has not been so much a backlash as the natural response to an act of evil by a morally healthy population.
The day before last, some hot-headed liberal emailed this blogger to accuse me of taking pleasure in the Woolwich tragedy. He charged me with being ‘excited and delighted’ by the event and the way it would bolster my ‘prejudice’. He’s wrong about ‘delight’, but I won’t lie and say he is entirely wrong regarding ‘excitement’. Something within me was undeniably excited when news broke of the Woolwich attack. It was the urge to take the battle to the enemy. I knew this particular atrocity would prove more socially explosive than the usual assaults on our transport infrastructure. The victim was a young, rosy-cheeked soldier wearing a ‘Help for Heroes’ sweater. His killer was a Qur’an-quoting thug showing zero remorse. Good and evil were thus both clearly identifiable. How could people not be whipped up into anger by such an event?
Still, I’m far from justifying everything that has occurred since then. According to the BBC, there have been arson attempts on Mosques, Death threats sent to Islamic community centres, and racist graffiti painted on the walls of multicultural enclaves. Most famously, a Muslim woman in Woolwich was rumoured to have had her Hijab ripped off by a passing youth.
I won’t defend the breaking of the law. But as to the people who commit these actions, they are not without legitimate grievance. Our elected leaders are plainly doing nothing to address the conditions which led to the murder. David Cameron spoke, ludicrously, of the attack as being a ‘betrayal of Islam’, and not, as a braver leader might have put it, an ‘application’ of the faith. With leaders like these, how are young people supposed to feel?
The exception to all this moping about, has been – predictably – the English Defence League. Just hours after the murder occurred, EDL activists were in Woolwich, chanting and making themselves known. They were filling a void left by our police, our politicians and our media.
Lamentably, the same old classist rhetoric has come forth from those who should know better. Yes, yes, we know most EDL members are (gasp!) ‘working class’, and that consequently they sound different to the people who read the news. That doesn’t make them any less human, or any less English, or their patriotism any less valuable.
The poor are always more essential in times of conflict than the rich. It’s been that way in this country for centuries. Shakespeare wrote these lines in ‘Richard II’:
‘The pale-face’d moon looks bloody on the earth And lean-look’d prophets whisper fearful change; Rich men look sad and ruffians dance and leap, The one in fear to lose what they enjoy, The other to enjoy by rage and war.’
What was true in Shakespeare’s age is true in ours. The chattering classes in London want to deny that war is upon us because they fear the conditions of war; they fear ’losing what they enjoy’. The ruffians by contrast, with nothing to play with but abstract ideals like Queen and country, are joyfully stepping up to the plate. Good for them, I say!
Soon, the dust will settle on this particular tragedy. Anger cannot last forever and grows weary like any other emotion. But from what I’ve seen in this ‘backlash’, the people of this country are louder, braver and more morally confident than ever before. We may not be there yet, but we are getting closer to the final straw that brings the country, young and old, into concert. For now, let’s wish the EDL well. I hope they make clear to the Muslims that, whatever else they might think of this world (and this life), England is not a faint or negotiable concept and that once roused, its people do not fall quickly back to sleep.
