“Through its security division Ghost Security, Anonymous is now on a global mission to help “cure the ISIS virus.”“Contributing to this effort is critical if you want to rid the world of the evil cult of Isis. Currently the Anonymous fraternity receive no funding for the work they do – the countless hours of hacking for the good of the world, the costs they incur can run to $300 each per month. It is high time we all shared in this – since our governments are failing miserably to end the horrific butchery of humanity which Isis and its supporters are dishing out day after day around the world”.
“O God, destroy the infidels and polytheists, thine enemies, the enemies of the religion. O God, make their children orphans, and defile their abodes, and cause their feet to slip, and give them and their families, and their households and their women and their children and their relations by marriage and their brothers and their friends and their possessions and their race and their wealth and their lands as booty to the Muslims.”
from: 19th Century curse Cairo’s school children were taught to recite at home time.
“Are you Muslim or Christian? We don’t want to kill Muslims.” That’s what the Islamic terrorists reportedly told their innocent prey during a murderous shooting spree last Saturday in Khobar, Saudi Arabia, that left at least 17 civilians dead in the initial assault.  How are we to interpret such repeated acts of terrorism, targeting non-Muslims? Perhaps the most influential contemporary doyen lecturing to us about “Islamic fundamentalism” has asserted, in multiple writings since 1990 , the following: fundamentalism and its accompanying “Muslim rage” derive exclusively from a steady decline in the geopolitical power of Muslim states, evidenced, most dramatically, by the official dissolution of the Ottoman Caliphate after World War I, and the creation of the State of Israel after World War II. Despite his erudition, this doyen appears unwilling to examine an obvious alternative explanation for the etiology and persistence of Muslim animus toward non-Muslims- what Muslim children, for generations, have been taught to think about the infidel “other,” regardless of the geopolitical circumstances.
E. W. Lane wrote an informative firsthand account of life in Egypt, particularly Cairo and Luxor, composed after several years of residence there (first in 1825-1828, then in 1833-1835). James Aldridge in his study Cairo (1969) called Lane’s account “the most truthful and detailed account in English of how Egyptians lived and behaved.”  Egyptian Muslims, Lane explains, regarded “persons of every other faith as the children of perdition; and such, the Muslim is early taught to despise…I am credibly informed that children in Egypt are often taught at school, a regular set of curses to denounce upon the persons and property of Christians, Jews, and all other unbelievers in the religion of Mohammad.”  Lane, who had perfect command of Arabic and went on to write a colossal Arabic-English lexicon, translated the prayer below from a contemporary 19th century Arabic text. It contains curses on non-Muslims, “which the Muslim youths in many of the schools in Cairo recite, before they return to their homes, every day of their attendance.”  One typical curse is:
I seek refuge with God from Satan the accursed. In the name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful. O God, aid El-Islam, and exalt the word of truth, and the faith, by the preservation of thy servant and the son of thy servant, the Sultan of the two continents (Europe and Asia), and the Khakan (Emperor or monarch) of the two seas [the Mediterranean and Black Seas], the Sultan, son of the Sultan (Mahmood) Khan (the reigning Sultan when this prayer was composed). O God, assist him, and assist his armies, and all the forces of the Muslims: O Lord of the beings of the whole world. O God, destroy the infidels and polytheists, thine enemies, the enemies of the religion. O God, make their children orphans, and defile their abodes, and cause their feet to slip, and give them and their families, and their households and their women and their children and their relations by marriage and their brothers and their friends and their possessions and their race and their wealth and their lands as booty to the Muslims. O Lord of the beings of the whole world.  (Emphasis added.)
Not surprisingly then, Lane describes how the Jews, for example, were “often…jostled in the streets of Cairo, and sometimes beaten merely for passing on the right hand of a Muslim…(The Jews) scarcely dare ever to utter a word of abuse when reviled or beaten unjustly by the meanest Arab or Turk; for many a Jew has been put to death upon a false and malicious accusation of uttering disrespectful words against the Qur’an or the Prophet. It is common to hear an Arab abuse his jaded ass, and, after applying to him various opprobrious epithets, end by calling the beast a Jew.” 
Over five decades later, in Tunis, 1888, the following personal account reveals further evidence of the visceral abhorrence and hostility inculcated in Muslim children, specifically, toward non-Muslims: “(The Jew) can be seen to bow down with his whole body to a Muslim child and permit him the traditional privilege of striking him in the face, a gesture that can prove of the gravest consequence. Indeed, the present writer has received such blows. In such matters the offenders act with complete impunity, for this has been the custom from time immemorial.”  (Emphasis added.)
Mary Boyce, Professor Emeritus of Iranian Studies and a pre-eminent scholar of Zoroastrianism, spent a 12-month sabbatical in 1963-64 living in the Zoroastrian community of Iran (mostly in Sharifabad, on the northern Yazdi plain). During a lecture series given at Oxford in 1975,  she noted how the Iranian ancestors of the Zoroastrians had a devoted working relationship (i.e., herding livestock) with dogs when they lived a nomadic existence on the Asian steppes. This sustained contact evolved over generations such that dogs became “a part in (Zoroastrian) religious beliefs and practices…which in due course became a part of the heritage of Zoroastrianism.”  Boyce then provided an historical overview of the deliberate, wanton cruelty of Muslims and their children towards dogs in Iran, including a personal eyewitness account:
In Sharifabad the dogs distinguished clearly between Moslem and Zoroastrian, and were prepared to go…full of hope, into a crowded Zoroastrian assembly, or to fall asleep trustfully in a Zoroastrian lane, but would flee as before Satan from a group of Moslem boys… The evidence points…to Moslem hostility to these animals having been deliberately fostered in the first place in Iran, as a point of opposition to the old (pre-Islamic jihad conquest) faith (i.e., Zoroastrianism) there. Certainly in the Yazdi area…Moslems found a double satisfaction in tormenting dogs, since they were thereby both afflicting an unclean creature and causing distress to the infidel who cherished him. There are grim…stories from the time (i.e., into the latter half of the 19th century) when the annual poll-tax (jizya) was exacted, of the tax gatherer tying a Zoroastrian and a dog together, and flogging both alternately until the money was somehow forthcoming, or death released them. I myself was spared any worse sight than that of a young Moslem girl…standing over a litter of two-week old puppies, and suddenly kicking one as hard as she could with her shod foot. The puppy screamed with pain, but at my angry intervention she merely said blankly, ‘But it’s unclean.’ In Sharifabad I was told by distressed Zoroastrian children of worse things: a litter of puppies cut to pieces with a spade-edge, and a dog’s head laid open with the same implement; and occasionally the air was made hideous with the cries of some tormented animal. Such wanton cruelties on the Moslems’ part added not a little to the tension between the communities. 
Sorour Soroudi, an Iranian Jewish woman and academic, whose family left Iran in 1970, published this recollection:
I still remember the rhyme Muslim children used to chant when they saw an Armenian in the streets, ‘Armeni, Armeni-dog, sweeper of hell are you!’ ” 
A decade later, anti-infidel discrimination intensified and became state sanctioned policy with the ascent of the Khomeini-lead Shi’ite theocracy in Iran.  Professor Eliz Sanasarian provides one particularly disturbing example of these policies, reflecting the hateful indoctrination of young adult candidates for national teacher training programs. Affirming as objective, factual history the hadith  account of Muhammad’s supposed poisoning by a Jewish woman from ancient Khaibar, Sanasarian notes, “Even worse, the subject became one of the questions in the ideological test for the Teachers’ Training College where students were given a multiple-choice question in order to identify the instigator of the martyrdom of the Prophet Muhammad, the ‘correct’ answer being ‘a Jewess.’” 
The ongoing proliferation of Saudi Arabian-sponsored educational programs rife with bigotry against non-Muslims has been well documented. A recent comprehensive report provided unambiguous examples of these hatemongering teaching materials, accompanied by this triumphal pronouncement from a Saudi royal family publication: “The cost of King Fahd’s efforts in this field has been astronomical, amounting to many billions of Saudi riyals. In terms of Islamic institutions, the result is some 210 Islamic centers wholly or partly financed by Saudi Arabia, more than 1,500 mosques and 2,002 colleges and almost 2,000 schools for educating Muslim children in non-Islamic countries in Europe, North and South America, Australia, and Asia.” 
Vilification of non-Muslims has been intrinsic to the religious education of Muslim children and young adults for centuries, an ignoble (and continuing) tradition that long antedates the modern or even pre-modern Muslim “fundamentalist” revival movements. We must acknowledge this reality and begin to think and act beyond the well-intentioned but limited constructs of even our most respected doyens. Perhaps it would be wise to heed the sober advice of this courageous madrassa dropout and secular Muslim “apostate” Ibn Warraq:
First, we who live in the free West and enjoy freedom of expression and scientific inquiry should encourage a rational look at Islam, should encourage Koranic criticism. Only Koranic criticism can help Muslims to look at their Holy Scripture in a more rational and objective way, and prevent young Muslims from being fanaticized by the Koran’s less tolerant verses… We can encourage rationality by secular education. This will mean the closing of religious madrassas where young children from poor families learn only the Koran by heart, learn the doctrine of Jihad – learn , in short, to be fanatics… My priority would be the wholesale rewriting of school texts, which at present preach intolerance of non-Muslims, particularly Jews. One hopes that education will encourage critical thinking and rationality. Again to encourage pluralism, I should like to see the glories of pre-Islamic history taught to all children. The banning of all religious education in state schools as is the case in France where there is a clear constitutional separation of state and religion is not realistic for the moment in Islamic countries. The best we can hope for is the teaching of Comparative Religion, which we hope will eventually lead to a lessening of fanatical fevers, as Islam is seen as but another set of beliefs amongst a host of faiths. 
Until Warraq’s recommendations are heeded, we can look forward to an endless jihad.

The IHRC gave their international ‘Islamophobe of the Year’ award to the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo (Photo: Damien Meyer/AFP/Getty)
I have always treated the ‘Islamophobe of the Year’ event with the scorn it deserves. Not least because each year this fantasy prize for a fantasy concept is run by a British Khomeinist organisation laughably named the ‘Islamic Human Rights Commission.’ The nominees include anybody opposed to the agenda of Islamic extremists, including Muslims. Of course each year, whilst laughing at it, those of us who are regular nominees also regard it as being to our great good fortune that the IHRC is a British charity operating in the United Kingdom rather than an Islamic charity operating in an Islamic country. If the latter were the case then rather than laughing at the IHRC every year, those of us who it annually attacks would be hanging from cranes.
However, readers will perhaps excuse me if the laughter is slightly quieter this year. The first reason is that the ‘Islamophobe of the Year’ award seems to be gaining ‘mainstream’ ground. This year the awards were not only endorsed by Islamic extremists on the one hand and pseudo-academics like Arun Kundnani on the other, but also by a number of more prominent public figures including the former Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams and former Telegraph journalist Peter Oborne.
Once again I made the shortlist but missed out on the main award. However the UK award for ‘Islamophobe of the Year’ did go to Maajid Nawaz. It would be hard to invent a better display of the agenda of the IHRC and the people involved with it. Because of course Maajid has devoted his life to, and risks his life by, attacking the extremists within the Islamic faith – his faith. The IHRC and their supporters seem to have much in common with fundamentalist and extremist Muslims, in that both are deeply irritated by the few brave Muslims like Nawaz. Indeed they hate him even more than they hate people like me. Readers will have to guess what variety of Islamic group might choose to attack liberal Muslims, what this says about their agenda and what it tells us about the intelligence of the people who support them.
But there is another reason why my laughter is lessened this year. Although I am assured that the laughter at the IHRC’s ‘ceremony’ in London on Saturday was as raucous as ever, this weekend the IHRC gave their international ‘Islamophobe of the Year’ award to the left-wing French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. This might be thought laughable in any other circumstances. The IHRC, one should remember, is a registered British charity. But of course it is not very funny, because only two months ago another group of people who thought Charlie Hebdo is ‘Islamophobic’ went into the magazine’s offices and gunned down their journalists and cartoonists. This is the way the pattern works now – the Islamic terrorists break through the front door with Kalashnikovs and then a whole network of fellow travellers try to sneak in through the back door and explain why the cartoonists and journalists might have had it coming.
Of course the IHRC and their supporters like to pretend that Muslims in Europe are being ‘otherised’ in the manner of Jews in Nazi Germany. But nothing could be further from the truth. Not just because it was concentration camps rather than ‘othering’ which was the main issue in Germany in the middle of the last century. But also because Muslims in Europe enjoy full equal rights – far more so than in any Islamic country in the world today or ever. If there are any negative feelings towards elements of the Muslim community it is towards the extremists. And why shouldn’t people hate those who blow up trains and buses, crash planes into buildings, shoot at free speech seminars and synagogues and target Christians, Hindus, Jews and liberal Muslims around the world? If that ire does end up being more widely and less discerningly directed then it will be precisely because a growing number of non-Muslims begin to notice that Muslim communities seem capable not only of producing the sort of people willing to slaughter journalists and cartoonists but also of then providing a multitude of pseudo-moderate organisations which compare the victims of Islamist violence – rather than the perpetrators – to Nazis.
I hope the IHRC and their supporters had an amusing time at their awards ceremony at the weekend, laughing as they smeared and mocked dead journalists. To my mind it provides a good reminder of what the civilised world is up against, abroad and at home.

“…the modern secular sin of being a racist (or an anti-Semite or an Islamophobe, its religious cousins) is by far the worst crime of which you can be accused.”
Trevor Phillips, ex-proponent of multiculturalism in New Labour’s Britain.
Trevor Phillips was New Labour’s multiculturalism tsar as Chairman for the Commission for Racial Equality from 2003. In 2005 he came to the realisation that the ‘dream’ of multiculturalism (encouraging immigrants to keep their own cultures from ‘back home’) was backfiring, and rather than helping integration it was creating segregation. This would have been obvious to anyone on the right of politics from inception, one would think, and yet evidently Phillips was censured by Theresa May for this statement at the time. Ten years on, and surely only the most obdurate of the loony Left can maintain that multiculturalism has worked.
“The perverse and unintended consequences of our drive to instil respect for diversity is that our political and media classes have become terrified of discussing racial or religious differences.
Our desperation to avoid offence is itself beginning to stand in the way of progress. And all too often the losers are minority Britons.
These ‘brave’ comments by Phillips are welcome – though as he says himself he was for a time the apogee of political correctness. It is good he has come around, and that his comments are finally bringing this most important of issues into the media. But it is remarkable, and indicative of the media’s continuing fear of ‘bigotry’ that ONLY a black man can say these things today and be listened to. ONLY a black man can tell the truth and be listened to by those in authority- that is racist in itself – inverse-racism yes, but racism nevertheless – it is the colour of Phillips’ skin which makes his MESSAGE palatable to the media.
“We all know why these things cannot be said. The long shadow of slavery and the Holocaust rightly makes us anxious about the kind of slack thinking that led to the dehumanising of entire populations.
Yet should history prevent us from understanding the differences between us — especially if those insights might improve life for everyone?”
Phillips rightly puts his finger on the button above in stating the Holocaust and slavery are shadows which cast darkness to this day – and stop media and politicians from speaking or hearing the truth for fear of unleashing a pogrom of racist aggression. Yet surely again, this is doing everyone a disservice – for it is not WE who shine a light on the violence and intolerance of others who are to be feared – it is those that will close their minds, stop public debate and allow evils to be perpetrated for fear of sounding ‘racist’ or ‘Islamophobic’;
“Ann Cryer, the first MP to blow the whistle on the street grooming scandal, in her Keighley constituency, now says she discovered that others in her local party had been aware of it for years, but neither the police nor social services would take her complaints seriously.
She says she found it difficult to raise the issue without being called a racist. In the end she went public, because ‘if you pretend it’s not happening, as many people in Rotherham did, then you go down the road of condoning it.”
Local councils and social workers are NOTORIOUSLY politically correct – and this is what has allowed the biggest evil to be done on our shores against girls by grown men WITH IMPUNITY for years. The fact is that even today, the media are focusing on the ‘Jihadi brides’ unduly, when there are yet more revelations of Muslim rape gangs emerging from new cities. Muslim rape gangs have been and probably still are affecting far more girls, girls who didn’t set out to plan and organise their own abuse, and who didn’t know what kind of men they were getting involved with. In the case of the ‘jihadi brides’ these girls would have had countless opportunities to see the true evil of Isis in the media, and countless chances to choose a different path. Yet they willingly went, stealing money to fund their journey to what they knew was a mass murdering cult of evil. WHY the media and police choose to focus on these girls as ‘victims’ completely in contrast to the way the thousands of girls ABUSED BY MUSLIM MEN IN THE UK have been treated – is sickening.
Phillips is only just touching the heart of the matter in his article, which is likely due to the persistence of his PC/Left mentality, for in truth MUCH more action is needed to remove the obstacles to telling the TRUTH of those in authority. Yet it is still good to hear, at last, someone saying this and being respected for it – unlike Nigel Farage who is made to seem like an oddball for his honesty.
That means we’re all going to have to become more ready to offend each other. If we do, we might — in time — begin to see each other in our true colours. And surely that’s what the aim of changing Britain’s attitudes to race was all about.
Of course, Phillips is also confusing race and religion and origins – for in fact of course Poles are not a different race to white Britons, but a different culture and nationality. I think the entire conversation centring on race has run its course in fact. It is the CULTURE of different groups which means they do or do not fit in, which either dooms them to failure in the West or aids their progress. Phillips touches on this where he points out that Jewish households tend to be wealthier on average, and that what he terms ‘Asian’ kids fare better at school than white kids from a working class background. It is the culture of these children which helps them achieve, or stems their successes. So if an Indian family integrates well into a community and teaches their children to fit in and to love education, that will set up their children for success.
Successive studies have shown that children from Muslim backgrounds fare the worst of any group of children in the UK in terms of GCSE performance:
Similarly, as Phillips points out;
“.. while many clever young Muslim women head for the top medical schools, a handful are boarding planes to become the brides of Isis fighters. We learn from his former headteacher that Jihadi John had attended a school where more than 70 per cent of the pupils were, like him, Muslims.”
Phillips skirts around the issue – but Islam is known for preparing children to become adults who can expect less prosperity and success. This is shown in Muslim majority nations which form the top portion of the list of most illiterate and poorest nations (especially if we remove the prosperity from oil which was happenstance rather than a product of labour or invention).
“The planet’s poorest countries include Ethiopia, Sierra Leone, Afghanistan, Cambodia, Somalia, Nigeria, Pakistan and Mozambique. At least six of the poorest of the poor are countries with a Muslim majority.
Fact: Of the 1.4 billion Muslims 800 million are illiterate (6 out of 10 Muslims cannot read). In Christendom, adult literacy rate stands at 78 percent.”
It is not too difficult to presuppose from the evidence of their failure in their ‘home’ nations, that the pattern of failure and lack of prosperity will be repeated when Muslims emigrate to the West, and so it has been. The clear reason is that Islam has for centuries oppressed believers and forced them to prioritise prayer, observance, ritual and reward in the afterlife over education, betterment, invention, modernity and progress. It is no good blaming the ‘evil West’ for this problem – these are sovereign nations, which run their own affairs (and even benefit disproportionately from Western aid money). Western ‘oppression’ has not caused this – rather Sharia theocratic regimes and observance to a backwards belief system has.
None of this would be much of a problem really, if it didn’t mean two things:
1 – We in the West fund these dissolute nations and peoples disproportionately (over 50% of Muslim men in the UK do not work and are in receipt of benefits for all their needs).
2 – Muslims are disproportionately perpetrators of terror attacks against us in the West as well as violence against their own people.
So we are effectively paying for the privilege of hosting and supporting potential terrorists. For, isn’t it much easier to plot terror attacks when one lives entirely on the benevolence of the welfare state? This is the real issue we must tackle – and though Phillips has touched upon it, much more needs to be done before the truth is finally stated by those in authority over us – the media and politicians so in thrall to the fraud of ‘Islamophobia’.

A fascinating and HONEST take on the poverty and dependence of the Arab Muslim world – http://marthavanderpol.com/2015/02/02/wonderful-arab-man-tells-it-like-it-is/
This fascinating take on Islam and the Western fear of sounding like ‘bigots’ by naming the problem of Islam, rather choosing to ascribe it to lone wolf attacks or spurious ‘Islamism’ – despite what all the Jihadis tell us – they are doing it for Islam!
This article is horrific – but when the West is considering what to do about Isis – it is essential reading (unfortunately) – not one for kids.
Since the global recession started in 2008, we have all had to make do, accept cuts to pay cheques and to public services just so as not to go bust. In the UK we hear our government is considering cutting our armed forces to under 50,000 in the next Parliament, and is struggling to keep defence spending to 2% of GDP.
Our health service is stretched beyond what is reasonable, and the poorest are surviving on food from food banks. Yet despite all this belt-tightening, we heard yesterday that Jihadi John’s family is now receiving police protection at a cost to the UK tax-payer of £5000 per week. I would say it is entirely debatable whether they really are in danger here anyway – for the British people are not prone to lynching people for the sins of their children.
We have put up with Muslim rape gangs all over the UK – not one lynching of any Muslims. We have put up with the horrific slaying of one of our soldiers in our streets – not one lynching followed. In fact – there is simply NO basis for the fanciful premise that somehow there is a rampant Islamophobic threat to Muslims in this country. Frankly – Muslims are safer in the UK than they would be back in Muslim nations where Muslims are routinely killed by other Muslims. It is us non-Muslims who are increasingly at risk from Muslims in our own countries – yet this is not dealt with adequately by our leaders. Rather, valuable money is spent protecting Muslims from OUR non-existent hatred!
The fact that we are not lynching anybody is a great testament to our civilised nature – but it is not to say that the people of Britain are overjoyed at their hospitality and tax money being squandered on people who are so ungrateful as to throw it back in our faces in the most vicious ways. Clearly, had the Emwazis not brought up a son who now specialises in the public beheading of innocents from the UK and elsewhere, there would be no need (even imaginary) for such expensive protection.
In fact this family was so ungrateful that Britain had fed, housed and educated them since taking them in as asylum seekers in 1992 that they never bothered to work for their living – relying on the state to pay for absolutely everything. We’ll never know what they taught their children precisely, but it can’t have been a love of Britain, Western values, a sense of fair play, patriotism to the land which gave them a safe home away from the ‘danger’ they claimed back in Kuwait (even though daddy Emwazi seems to have no problem residing back there today), or a sense of gratitude to the British people for having done so much for them for so long.
So instead of despatching this ungrateful family back to Kuwait where they could clearly live in safety again, we are spending £5000 per week protecting them from imaginary threats.
Similarly, we spent at least £2.75 million on funding hook hand Abu Hamza during his stay in the UK where he and his family lived solely off the tax payer, and he engaged in open treason and sedition on the streets of London, preaching hate and violent Jihad against us. Yet the state did nothing for decades of this – until finally Theresa May managed to deport him in this Parliament.
Around all mosques in the country today, you will see men in traditional dress milling around during the day – whilst everyone else in the country is hard at work at their desks. Not all of these people can be their own boss, business owners who can work the hours they please. Surely it is not too difficult to imagine many are indeed living off the state? And yet nothing is done. And at the same time we KNOW that there is blatant hate preaching going on in these Mosques, whilst we work to pay welfare for the attendees so they may be free from the hassle of work, to listen to it.
Baroness Flather, who was Britain’s first female Asian peer said in September 2011 that Pakistani and Bangladeshi communities were failing to adopt the values of British society and said they should have their benefits slashed.
In a speech the House of Lords during the second reading of the Welfare Reform Bill, she said: “The minority communities in this country, particularly the Pakistanis and the Bangladeshis, have a very large number of children and the attraction is the large number of benefits that follow the child.
“Nobody likes to accept that, nobody likes to talk about it because it is supposed to be very politically incorrect.”
Baroness Flather has been accused of stirring up hatred for this comment – yet it is backed up with facts:
“…compared with the UK average of 22% of the working age population being economically inactive, Somali, Bangladeshi, Pakistani and Iranian immigrants are likely to be 81%, 56%, 55% and 48% economically inactive respectively” – (Migration Watch report)
This is a problem of false concern for the ‘rights’ of these immigrant populations to continue to live here without learning English, to continue to have large families and even to have more than one wife. This is a clear example of both Labour and Coalition governments putting the ‘rights’ of immigrants over those of the existing population. The same Migration Watch report shows that the cost in terms of benefits for a family on low incomes is huge, over a lifetime:
“There is a high concentration of immigrants in London. For example it is estimated that 70% of illegal immigrants live in London. As rents are considerably higher in London, the total lifetime costs for a two child family resident in London is £1.1million, of which £505,000 is Housing Benefit and Council Tax Benefit.”
Pamela Geller, noted Islam critic, states this blunt summation of why so many Muslims are living off British welfare:
“53% of Muslim men are depending upon the kuffar. It’s the jiyza. It’s the duty of non-Muslim to pay for the upkeep of the non-Muslim”. – (See more at: Pamela Geller.com)
Yet still our governments pretend that we are a cohesive society where Muslims are contributing just as much as anyone else. Clearly, this is a complete lie – and it is the British people who suffer for this unfair situation in 2 ways – our national income is depleted in paying for these people who make every effort NOT to work, and our national security is jeopardised as they bring up children whose sole aims are to replace our Western democracy with a hateful Sharia Islamic theocracy. This is what terrorists want, and this is why they do not work – to have more time to plot terror and simultaneously drain our public purse.
This is why our government is letting us down. Rather than dealing with this clear abuse of our tolerance and generosity, it merely pretends there is a risk to Muslims from US, decent upstanding citizens! It claims there is rampant ‘Islamophobia’ when rather there is rampant hatred of non-Muslims BY Muslims alone – the ongoing revelations of the extent of ‘rape jihad’ (rape of young white girls by Muslim men) is proof if proof were needed – whilst there are clearly some Muslims who contribute and love this nation – there are far, far TOO MANY who hate us and abuse our tolerance to further their intolerance.
To the shame of the Crown Prosecution Service, who decided NOT to prosecute him when they could have, another would-be terrorist has just been sentenced to a long prison stay in New York state for plotting to blow up Manchester’s Arndale Centre. Incredibly, the police had seized this Pakistani on a fake student visa, found that he had been in regular contact with Al-Quaeda back in Pakistan and that he and his gang were plotting a Mumbai-style attack on the UK. Despite all the evidence the CPS decided not to prosecute him and let him back onto the UK streets where, had the US not demanded his extradition and successfully prosecuted him, he would no doubt by now have savagely taken the lives from a number of innocents.
There are daily examples of Muslims who were born and brought up in the UK and Europe who ‘out of the blue’ decide to become Jihadis, leave for Syria or kill people on home soil. At least this is how it is presented in the media and by our politicians. As if, without Islam, without having been brought up in a Muslim home or ‘radicalised’ by ‘hate preachers’ (preaching Islam) this would still have happened? Well, sure – there are nutters who ‘go postal’ and engage in mass killings without Islam. But the glaringly obvious fact is that these were unavoidable – with Jihad however, it is avoidable. How? Well simply by banning Islam, banning these vile ‘hate preachers’, banning all Jihadi intoned media (satellite and online) and engaging in a concerted campaign of civil education to remove Islam as an option for people.
Isn’t this too extreme a reaction? Well, it would be if it were based on a single solitary event. But Islam has been the cause of so much violence and death since 1980 (full list of atrocities here), and this is simply growing since the eruption of Isis and their claiming to have set up an Islamic caliphate (religious state) last year. It is now becoming insane not to address the core reasons for Islam’s seeming inexorable need for death and destruction.
The prophet said, “I have been awarded victory by terror; so the treasures of the earth are mine.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari/ Vol 9:127)
“….The prophet had their men killed, their children and women taken captive. The captives divided among the Muslims. Then the Messenger began taking the homes and property that were closest to him.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari/ Vol 5:512)
These quotes from Muhammad’s biography the Hadith are accepted as truth in the Sunni Muslim world (large majority of Muslims worldwide are Sunni) and Muslims are told to emulate and love this prophet despite this love of murder and looting. Yet I say ‘despite’ inadvertently – for in Islam there is absolutely no moral basis against murder or looting so long as it is done to infidels. Anything is allowed so long as Islam is spread globally until Islamic sharia law is the only law and Islam the only religion.
“Allah revealed His will to the angels, saying: ‘I shall be with you. Give courage to the believers. I shall cast terror into the hearts of the infidels. Strike off their heads, strike off the very tips of their fingers!’ That was because they defied Allah and His apostle. He that defies Allah and his apostle shall be sternly punished by Allah.” (Koran – Sura 8.12-13)
YUSUFALI: Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued. (Koran 009.029)
The quotes above from Koran are merely two of at least 160 verses of hate towards non-believers. It has to be accepted – unless one is a Muslim (and the right kind of Muslim at that for Sunni hate Shia and vice versa) – one is the enemy of Islam and thus Muslims (those who can be bothered to) have the right, given to them by their ‘god’, to destroy us. It doesn’t matter whether Muslims are living in the West or anywhere else – it is their religious duty to spread Islam until we infidel are subdued. That is what is meant by ‘Islam is a religion of Peace’ – it means that in Muslim eyes there will be peace on earth ONLY once Islam is spread to every corner of the globe and Sharia law is the only law. This is what ALL jihadis believe – and we in the West had better start believing this too – before we end up like Indonesia, which was once a Hindu/Buddhist nation, which has been turned into a Muslim state first by immigration then violent take-over. The same can be said for India and Afghanistan which were Hindu/Buddhist until Muslims came and took over by force – hence Pakistan. It is estimated at least 80 million Hindus were killed during the Muslim rule of parts of India. M.A. Khan who wrote about Islam in India in ‘Islamic Jihad’ says this about Islam:
“After 9/11, Khan began reading the scriptures of Islam and realized that Islam is actually a manifesto of open-ended war against non-Muslims for converting them or for subjugating them into horribly degraded dhimmi subjects.”
The problem we have in the UK is that any criticism of Islam or the actions of Muslims is immediately decried to be ‘racist’, ‘intolerant’, ‘far-right’ or even ‘fascism’. Yet it is the precise opposite of all these – we who oppose Islam are opposed to the racism, intolerance and fascism of Islam! We would have lived happily with Muslims had they not started to abuse our tolerance and freedom and generosity – had they not started to wage war against us by preaching hatred against us and attacking us. The huge number of ex-Muslims working today to bring the truth about Islam to light is testimony to this – after all, they ought to know. (Read more here, here and here).
How can we have gotten to the state where now Jews have to have armed guards protecting their places of worship? How is it possible that today Soldiers are advised not to wear uniform outside for fear of attack? Anyone is at risk from Islam – we know of the Arndale bomber (above) who was planning a Mumbai style attack on us – the question is simply – Who and Where will the next Islamic attack destroy? Why are our politicians not doing anything about this? Why are they all still pretending that Islam is a peaceful religion when it has shown it cannot coexist anywhere without eventually beginning to demand special treatment, followed by abusing the system and them violent attacks. Why are our leaders not protecting US, the innocent public? Why are they instead spending our money looking after those who would destroy us?
There has been news of new measures being prepared by the government to tackle extremism – but I would argue that these are still far wide of the mark:
“A leaked draft of the Home Office’s new counter-extremism strategy, seen by The Telegraph, targets Sharia courts and calls for a ban on radicals working unsupervised with children over fears the young could be brainwashed.
Other measures include a requirement that staff at job centres identify vulnerable claimants who may become targets for radicalisation, after public outrage at people who hate Britain being able to live off the state.
There will also be an introduction of penalties in the benefits system to make people learn English to improve their integration into British society.
The rules on granting citizenship will also be tightened to ensure new residents embrace “British values”. (From The Telegraph).
Clearly – all of these should have been in place from the first immigration by Muslims into this country. Certainly since 7/7 our state should have been tough on immigrants who live off the state and spread hatred. Sharia should never have been allowed and English should be a basic requirement before immigration – as otherwise we are simply cooking up a mess where hundreds of thousands (millions?) simply move here and never work! When we are facing cuts to all our services, when pensioners who have worked hard all their lives are having to live off charity in their old age, there is simply no excuse to continue ignoring the threat of Islam – not only to our national security but also to our national finances.
We cannot keep funding a growing population of people who won’t work and who raise children who want to kill us. This simple fact is behind the popularity of UKIP – because none of the mainstream parties are honest enough to publicly acknowledge the fact that Muslim immigration has not been working for this country and something must be done about it sooner rather than later. If we do nothing – we are simply waiting for the next terrorist horror to be perpetrated against us by Muslims whom we pay too heavily for the ‘privilege’ of hosting.
This should be a Conservative issue – even a Labour one – the people of this country of whatever colour and creed who work hard and pay their taxes honestly are being robbed of their jobs, services and even their lives by immigrants who do not play by the same rules. The poorest workers are seeing their jobs going to those who will work for little – but ALL of us are paying too heavy a toll for Muslim immigrants who simply feed off the system and give nothing back but terror and hatred. All our political parties SHOULD be doing and saying more about this to make this behaviour publicly derided as unacceptable.
As a friend of mine who is a lawyer has said, anyone engaged in activities that are counter our national interests should quite rightly be prosecuted under existing Treason law –
“Treason… is a suitably flexible term that applies to most of the vast range of activities that UK Jihadis get up to without the necessity to ban everyone else from doing everything else. Moreover it also has the entirely appropriate stigma that is important for crime prevention and draws a clear moral opprobrium against traitors to the country.”
It is the moral opprobirum and social stigma that is missing today – and our politicians and our media are guilty of colluding with Islamists to remove this from Muslim criminals by pretending it has ‘nothing to do with Islam’. There is therefore a huge gap in understanding with the public about the reality of Islam and the false image of Islam portrayed by media and politicians – this is why we are blindly walking into a state of dhimmitude or subserviency to Islam. This is why we MUST demand our leaders stop the lying and start acting in the interests of people who only want peace and tolerance to reign in this land once again.

Update on this from Louis Palme! Evidently Ali Sina at faithfreedom.org sees the list below as an ex-Muslim and believes there is a secondary agenda to all but 1 point on the agenda! I have thus edited it with these changes in mind!
By Louis Palme
British Muslims have presented a Manifesto to Parliament outlining the thirty-three issues they want addressed by candidates for Parliament. This list provides a clear picture of the Muslim agenda in the UK, and it also helps us understand more-or-less what issues are on the agenda for American Muslims.
What I have done with list below is put the items into a number of categories. Only eleven of the thirty-three demands would be considered fair and reasonable in a secular society. Those demands might have been thrown into the list to throw off the accusation that these are Muslim-specific demands.
Anti-free speech – This would deny the free discussion of religious/political ideologies
Blame-shifting – This demand implies that the problems in the Muslim community are the fault or responsibility of the government
Forced respect – A demand that government promote unearned/undeserved respect for Muslims
Jizyah – An attempt to get non-Muslim tax-payers to provide special or extraordinary benefits for the Muslim community
OK – A reasonable demand regardless of religion – if the demand is honest and sincere
Sharia – This demand institutionalizes Sharia Law in the United Kingdom
Superiority – This demand places the importance of Islam equal or above other religions, despite their constituting only 4.4 percent of the population.
Taqiyah – A demand that the government endorse and propagate lies about Islam
Dhimmitude – The inferior state of non-Muslims in Muslim nations.
So let’s see how each point measures up:
1. Sharia – Defend the right to a Muslim way of life, including halal meat; religious clothing; circumcision; and flexible working to accommodate Ramadan and festival observance.
2. Blasphemy Law – Oppose all forms of hate crime, including Muslim-hate, Anti-Semitism and all other types of racism, whilst also promoting and enhancing community safety.
3. Dhimmitude – Promote good relations, understanding and cooperation between all of the UK’s communities.
4. Dhimmitude – Support efforts to accurately remember Muslim and non-Muslim histories including oppressive and genocidal actions against Muslim peoples by British and European peoples.
5. Legitimising Islam– Commit to ethical British foreign policies that uphold the human rights of all peoples.
6. Islamic indoctrination of children — Affirm the importance of faith schools within the overall provision.
7. Anti-free speech — Support the provision of religiously and culturally sensitive youth and social care services.
8. OK – Promote a more just and sustainable future in the UK and abroad; supporting efforts to tackle poverty, environmental degradation including climate change, human rights abuses and the misuse of arms.
9. Superiority – Celebrate and support Muslim heritage and cultural institutions.
10. Blame-shifting – Eliminate the root causes of institutional discrimination against Muslims and introduce tougher legislation to prevent it.
11. Jizyah – Significantly reduce poverty in Muslim communities.
12. Blame-shifting — Reduce higher than average unemployment in Muslim communities.
13. Blame-shifting – Reverse rising criminalization of Muslim youth.
14. Blame-shifting – Boost secular educational attainment of Muslims in Britain.
15. Jizyah – Significantly improve health and well-being in Muslim communities.
16. Legitimise funding mosques – Provide assurance and evidence that foreign funding is not causing/promoting violent extremism in the UK.
17. Anti-free speech — Introduce more robust legislation to curb media hate campaigns against Muslims.
18. Sharia – Guarantee the Muslim community the opportunity to evolve independently of government social engineering programs.
19. Taqiyah – Acknowledge that the holy scripture of Muslims (the Qur’an) does not endorse terrorism and the murder of innocents.
20. Taqiyah – Acknowledge and celebrate Muslim contributions to knowledge and civilization including European civilization.
21. Forced respect – Support all reasonable measures not to view Muslims with suspicion and through a security perspective.
22. Blame-shifting — Encourage enquiry into the effects of over-sexualization of public spaces upon young people.
23. Islamic Indoctrination of Children – Support the introduction of more rigorous and analytical religious education in all British schools that takes a balanced and critical approach to all the major world religions.
24. Superiority – Provide more holistic and relevant curriculums in schools with a high proportion of Muslims pupils.
25. Islamic Indoctrination of Children — Support a holistic improvement of faith school education and stop the current securitization agenda.
26. Blame-shifting – Support greater development of the Muslim arts and cultural sector to nurture more mainstream Muslim cultural leaders and role models.
27. Blame-shifting – Allow Muslims greater access to decision-making processes in the security services.
28. Sharia – Recognize Muslims have a distinct ‘way of life’ (deen) which opposes any understanding of religion or faith as separate from other aspects of life.
29. OK — Withdraw all economic, military and other support for oppressive governments in Muslim and non-Muslim countries.
30. Superiority – Promote the positive shared Abrahamic history of Moorish, Christian and Jewish culture in Europe.
31. Superiority – Highlight and promote the Muslim Diaspora’s contribution to the British economy.
32. Blame-shifting – Encourage the development of a 21st century Muslim ideological narrative conducive to living peacefully in the West whilst remaining true to the values of Islam.
33. Blame-Shifting — Oppose all unfair exploitation of resources owned by Muslim and non-Muslim countries
Louis Palme writes for http://www.islam-watch.org/about-us.html – a wonderful group of ex-Muslims making every effort to expose Islam. I’m very proud to be able to reproduce this article here and urge you to explore their site for yourselves:
We felt it incumbent upon us to make the non-Muslim world aware of the reality of Islam, and undertake timely precautionary measures against this religion of terror, hatred and mayhem. We tell the world that the ongoing terrorism, unleashed by Islamic militants, is not an aberration from the so-called ‘peaceful religion of Islam’; instead, it is the real Islam preached and practiced by its founder, Prophet Muhammad. A thorough study of the Qur’an and prophetic tradition (Hadith, Sunnah) makes that obvious.
We, therefore, have launched this website to expose the “real Islam”—the Islam that is determined to replace the modern civilization with the 7th-century Arab Bedouin barbarism, peddled by Muslims as the true Islamic Civilization. Let the world watch Islam through www.islam-watch.org and be warned.

Islam as a distinct entity from Islamism is an interesting idea – and so powerful that most world leaders are professing it is the only truth on this issue. But it is not an idea which anyone who has actually read the Koran and the Hadith (Muhammad’s biographies) can hold. In fact, all the Islamic terrorists the world has seen since the 1980s have been inspired not by random rage but by these core texts of Islam.
It would be wonderful if there really were a terrible bunch of people called ‘Islamists’ who focus solely on the less peaceful aspects of Islam as an excuse to wage war. After all, there are so many nice Muslims who are not waging war and live peacefully amongst us – what else are we to do about them otherwise?
I had a conversation with an American liberal yesterday, who believes Islam can be reformed. Clearly, Maajid Nawaz (above) also holds this belief. It is an honourable one, and I wish it were possible – but it is not. Not when one considers that both the Koran and the Hadith are FULL of hatred and discrimination for unbelievers, apostates, other faiths, women and ‘hypocrites’ or bad Muslims. Continue reading We must blame ‘Islamism’ for Islam’s evils – because it’s got ‘nothing’ to do with Islam.
Hearing about Jihadi John’s life of luxury at taxpayer’s expense (his parents never worked and they lived in million pound properties in Maida Vale) is unbelievable – though not surprising.
What did the Emwazis offer the UK? Nothing. What did we give them? Asylum from alleged oppression in Kuwait (though the parents are back there now…) and of course totalling the benefit payments and luxurious house in London – more than 99% of the UK population could afford.
