Islam in the UK

Islamic terror attacks on the UK began in 1969. It is hard to see how they will ever end.

Stories of British ex-Muslims.
BBC Newsnight, Nov 2013.
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."

Young British Muslims are more Islamist, not less

"England is a cesspit. England is the breeding ground of fundamentalist Muslims."

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.)

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.

The Quilliam Foundation

The Quilliam Foundation (of anti-extremist Muslims) is a mixed bag. They bravely name names on the many Islamists and jihadists in the UK. They stood up to sharia by tweeting a Mohammed cartoon. 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 promote any of Ali Gomaa's repellent ideas.

The best thing I've seen about Quilliam:
Maajid Nawaz stands up to sharia and bravely tweets a "Jesus and Mo" cartoon on 12 Jan 2014 and 17 Jan 2014.
He receives a storm of abuse and death threats.
He deserves serious respect for this.


Maajid Nawaz goes mad

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


Britain is becoming less hospitable to the fascist enemies of Britain


Jack Letts

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, Mar 2011.
All these people should be deported.

This kind of thing is almost as unpleasant as outright jihadism:
British Muslim rapper "Ambassador" in his song "Terrorist" says all Islamic terror attacks were "inside jobs". Including 9/11, 7/7, Boston and Woolwich.
This passive-aggressive bullshit is a way for Islamic extremists to avoid condemning Islamic terror while subtly threatening Westerners.

CAGE (formerly Cageprisoners)


Asim Qureshi of CAGE supports jihad around the world: "When we see the example of our brothers and sisters fighting in Chechnya, Iraq, Palestine, Kashmir, Afghanistan, then we know where the example lies. When we see Hezbollah defeating the armies of Israel, we know where the solution is and where the victory lies. We know that it is incumbent upon all of us, to support the jihad of our brothers and sisters in these countries when they are facing the oppression of the West."

I am blocked by these jihadi apologists on Twitter.
I never even interacted with them!

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.

Blocked on Twitter by the regressive left and Islamists: I love debate. I love ideas. But the Western left and their friends the Islamic right do not return the favour. Their response to opposing ideas, whether expressed politely or robustly, is often to block. See Who blocks me on Twitter.

I like debate. But I do have rules. See Who I block on Twitter.

Twitter is broken, 2016 to 2022: I am on Twitter at markhumphrys. Twitter was a great place for debate before 2016. You could meet everyone in the world, and argue about ideas. Starting in 2016, Twitter became increasingly broken. It became full of reporting and bans and censorship. In 2019, Twitter even started shadowbanning me for no reason that was ever explained, or could be appealed. By 2022, everyone was looking for a better place to debate.

Twitter is saved, 2022: In 2022 Elon Musk bought Twitter and started to end the censorship. It looks great so far. Twitter seems to be saved.
