Islam in the UK

As I say on the Islam in the West page, most Muslim immigrants come to the West precisely because they support its freedoms and want to escape failed states ruled by clerics and Islamic dictators. We have a duty to let these freedom-loving Muslims in.

Western Muslims are the most liberal, tolerant, pro-democracy Muslims in the world. All the dissidents are here - the religious dissidents, the political dissidents, the feminist dissidents, and the gay dissidents. All the dissident works - such as criticism of Islam and Islamism - are published in the West.

This is all much to be celebrated. However, there is a substantial minority (10-20 percent) of immigrants who threaten our western freedoms. They are Islamists - essentially religious fascists who want to impose their religious beliefs on the rest of us. What to do about these aggressors is one of the questions of our time.





Stories of British ex-Muslims.
The ideal future for Britain is not one in which immigrants cling to their ancestors' beliefs, but rather one in which immigrants become more British, which will involve large numbers of them losing their faith, and the remaining believers being tolerant of that.
As Ed West says: "the ideal for British social cohesion would be for lots of Muslims (and Hindus and Sikhs) to become atheists, agnostics or very wishy-washy Anglicans."




Opinion polls


Young British Muslims are more Islamist, not less




"England is a cesspit. England is the breeding ground of fundamentalist Muslims."
- Shocking words from Nigerian writer Wole Soyinka, winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, angry at the radicalisation of the Nigerian Flight 253 bomber while he was a student in Britain.
Reported 3 Feb 2010. Image from here.
He may exaggerate, but what is the world coming to when foreign intellectuals complain about the jihad being exported from England? (He's not the only one.)




The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB)



The Muslim Association of Britain (MAB)




Azzam Tamimi declares his support for Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad and Hamas.
The disgusting freaks of Neturei Karta look on.
Tamimi calls for the elimination of Israel.
"anybody in the world, with faith or without faith, must come together in order to eradicate this cancer from the body of humanity. ... Do you know why Tony Blair, George Bush, and all the members of this camp are so worried? They are worried because they know the world can see clearly today that Israel is a menace, is a threat to humanity. They can no longer fool anybody and they are worried that this spoiled baby of theirs is about to be thrown out of this human body of ours. It is just a matter of time. ... This black chapter in the history of humanity will eventually come to an end"



Hilarious splicing of Azzam Tamimi in the speech above with Azzam Tamimi pretending to be moderate with a credulous NPR host.
Splicing by Dan Sytman.

The Quilliam Foundation

The Quilliam Foundation initially looked good. They bravely name names on the many Islamists and jihadists in Muslim Britain. But there are some problematic things about them.



The worst thing I've seen about Quilliam:
Quilliam's 2008 "About Us" page promoted Islamic extremist Ali Gomaa.
They have since replaced it with a new "About Us" page, and they don't seem to promote any of Ali Gomaa's repellent ideas.
But maybe Quilliam aren't as good as I thought.




The Quilliam Foundation list of Islamists

The Quilliam Foundation, in a leaked 2010 report, provide a useful list of UK Islamists:

Extract follows.


Islamist influenced groups, mosques and media outlets

These are a selection of the various groups and institutions active in the UK which are broadly sympathetic to Islamism. Whilst only a small proportion will agree with al-Qaeda's tactics, many will agree with their overall goal of creating a single 'Islamic state' which would bring together all Muslims around the world under a single government and then impose on them a single interpretation of sharia as state law. Local and central government should be wary of engagement with these groups as it risks empowering proponents of the ideology, if not the methodology, that is behind terrorism.

Extremist Islamists in the UK




The (very catchy) "Dirty Kuffar" (2004) by British fascists "Sheikh Terra" and the "Soul Salah Crew".
Great fun, but seriously, everyone involved in this video should be expelled, not just from Britain, but from the West entirely.
Almost every Briton agrees with me.



Islamofascists march for sharia in London, June 2010.
All these people should be deported.




Ken Livingstone and Yusuf Al-Qaradawi




Yusuf Al-Qaradawi praises Hitler and the Holocaust.
And copy.



Al-Qaradawi on homosexuals: "The schools of thought disagree about the punishment. ... Some say we should throw them from a high place, like God did with the people of Sodom. Some say we should burn them, and so on. There is disagreement."



Ken Livingstone spews Israel-hatred and America-hatred on the state TV of the terror state of Iran, which threatens a genocide of the Jews of Israel, which funds the killing of brave British and American troops in Iraq, and which funds and encourages Shia-Sunni sectarian slaughter in Iraq.
Livingstone calls it a "tragedy" that the dictator Nasser (who gassed Yemen, killed Jewish civilians, and wanted to carry out a second Holocaust of the Jews of Israel) failed in his aim to "unite" the Arab Muslim world.
Strangely, Livingstone comes out against the London bombings.

The future

Islamism will be defeated, humiliated, and thrown in the dustbin of history in the next few decades. The West has seen off far greater threats than some know-nothing medieval religious revival.

The defeat of Islamism will be a great day, above all, for Muslims in the West, who will no longer be feared as a possible fifth column.

Over the next century, Islam in the West will mutate in the same way Christianity did. It will become far more tolerant and more diverse. As with Christianity, traditionalists will still exist, but they will no longer threaten violence. As with Christianity, Islamic and post-Islamic scholars will arise who question the existence of Allah, the origin of the Quran, the morality of Muhammad and even his existence. Millions of Muslims will become secular, apostates and atheists.

In the end, the idea of the West, the idea of reason, curiosity and human freedom, will prove stronger than either Christianity or Islam, or any religion.



 

Wonderful anti-Islamist demo, Oct 2009, from British Muslims for Secular Democracy.
"Freedom! Democracy!"
"Free Speech Will Dominate The World."
"Liberal Democracy Will Rule The World. Freedom Is Here To Stay."





Return to Islam in the West.
