So proud, so very proud

Addressing the Pakistan National Council of the Arts, on a visit to the country, our beloved Home Secretary Jacqui Smith favoured her auditors with the following remarks:

After Christianity, Islam is the largest faith community in the UK. 1.6million declared themselves Muslims in the 2001 census, and that figure may now be as high as 2million. Islam is one of many faiths which are practised in UK communities. We are proud to live in such a diverse country.

Three points:

1. It's interesting to note that Jacqui Smith does not refer to the 'community', but to "UK communities". An inadvertent admission, perhaps, of the extent to which mass immigration and multiculturalism are turning the UK into little more than a patchwork of disparate groups, having nothing in common beyond the fact that they inhabit the same patch of land.

2. The fact that the Muslim population of Britain has increased by 25% in just seven years demonstrates quite how rapidly Islam is spreading within our country. True, their numbers may still be comparatively insignificant, at just 3.3% of the total population, but, on the basis of present trends, they will not remain so for long. Considering how much influence they already wield, and the extent to which they are already in receipt of preferential treatment, one wonders how far the craven politicians and media will go in their efforts to appease the Muslims in the future.

3. Who, I wonder, is this "we", who "are proud to live in such a diverse country"? Is it the public at large? Well, since 53% of us say that Islam poses a threat to the West, I rather think not. The British public have never been consulted on whether they wanted to live in "such a diverse country"; they have simply had it imposed upon them, together with the mantra that failure to show sufficient appreciation for "diversity" is to mark oneself out as an evil bigot of the worst kind.

I'm certainly not proud to live in a country with an ever-increasing Islamic population. I am, however, deeply worried. After all, the increase in the size of the Islamic population probably means that the number of people in the UK who want to impose Sharia law has, since the start of the millennium, risen from 640,000 to at least 800,000, not to mention a parallel increase in the numbers who want to engage in such wholesome activities as killing apostates. Hardly an occasion for pride, I would have thought.

Jacqui Smith's comments demonstrate, once again, quite how out of touch she, and the rest of the buffoons running the country, are. At a time when the public is increasingly concerned about the impact that Islam is having upon our society, Smith proclaims, on behalf of all of us, her pride in the presence of millions of Muslims in Britain. The only hope for this country is to kick these cretins out at the next election; thankfully, as Jacqui Smith has a majority of less than 3,000 in her Redditch constituency, she at least should be gone pretty soon.

Full Disclosure: I, Monty, am an Englishwoman. And I am not fat. So there.

You will understand why I said that when you read the rest of this.

The assault on the traditions, culture and morals of the English, has escalated significantly since the new labour machine established its monstrous regiment of fat, ugly, talentless womenfolk in office. They have all the grace and elegance of a council house washing line. They have done nothing but nag nag nag us ever since their election. They behave as if we are their wayward children, and it is good for us when they knock nine bells of hell out of us, for failing to be just like them.

Who the hell would want to be like Smith, Harman, Short, et al? The only good thing about them is they make John Prescott look handsome, and competent.

They are nasty, venal, disreputable, AND DID I SAY FAT, AND UGLY, and stupid.

We, the English don't have "communities". We are the English. This is a concept that frightens them. So let's keep saying it.

Good stuff as ever FR but when you wish for the NuLabour to be sent packing at the next election do you intend that they be replaced by the Tories? You really should 'come out' and state plainly that (imperfect as it is) only a vote for the BNP offers any chance of ending the totalitarian liberal nightmare that is modern Britain.

Yes, the Muslim "community" is at present just over 3% of the population, but if they continue to outbreed the indigenous population how long before we the English become a merely another "community" in a Utopia of Diversity?

It's already too late to arrest this demographic trend because the only effective way of controlling the Muslim birth rate would be to deport or "repatriate" them in such numbers that they can no longer maintain even replacement stability.

Does anyone honestly expect that such a policy will ever be adopted by any British government we are likely to see in our lifetimes?

My concern, viewing this from across the pond, is both detached and different.

The increasing ghettoization of European countries, but France and the UK in particular, is worrisome.

In the Balkans, the precedent was set: over the centuries, Kosovo became a Muslim majority place. It also happens to have extensive connections to Islamic extremism and organized crime. In violation of international law, the West (especially the US) has supported and now recognized Kosovo's independence from Serbia.

This is only the first domino; the precedent will reach across Europe until the ghettoization of France and the UK becomes balkanization. At what point will France and the UK, nuclear-armed permanent members of the UN Security Council, become dominated by Islamic extremists tied to terrorism and heroin trafficking?

Obviously, the concern is far more immediate to those of you living on your side of the pond....

And replace them with who? The modern Tories would have been called far left in the 1950s. Unfortunately, only the BNP come anywhere near recognizing what needs to be done. The medicine will have to be nasty, because the disease has been neglected far too long.

How's this for promoting interfaith understanding...

"THE HAGUE, 09/04/08 - A primary school in Amsterdam wished to provide its pupils with an understanding for other cultures. But during a visit to a mosque, the children were told they were dogs.

With a view to developing understanding and respect for other cultures among children, primary school De Horizon regularly organises outings to various religious organisations. The chairman of the El Mouchidine mosque told the children from group 7 (aged 10) and their chaperones however that non-Muslims are dogs.

In a letter to the children's parents, the school expresses its regret at the incident: "We are shocked that during the guided tour, the mosque's chairman told the children and chaperoning parents that non believers were dogs. We consider this statement as unacceptable since we allow our children to partake in this project to develop respect for freedom of religious choice".

In the meantime, the school's management has addressed the mosque on the undesirable behaviour of the chairman. Both parties will say nothing further on the matter. "We will resolve the matter amongst ourselves and I have no inclination whatsoever to discuss the matter with the media", as newspaper De Telegraaf quoted the school's spokesperson Mariet ten Berge. "We have been to the mosque before and it always went well".

Angry parents had sent the letter on to De Telegraaf but were reportedly rapped on the knuckles by the school's management. "The school wishes to play this down. That is precisely the problem", as one mother commented." http://www.nisnews.nl/public/090408_2.htm

Muzzylogic/Against the Wall:

I have in the past written that a vote for the BNP, where they stand, will usually be the best option, and I still tend to believe that. However, they clearly are not going to be swept to power at the next election - last time, they only contested about a quarter of the constituencies. Realistically, the next election will either be won by Labour or the Tories (or might possibly result in a hung parliament). Although I'm not a great fan of either party, I think that the Tories would be the lesser evil; certainly, I find it hard to imagine that they could be worse. So, yes, I am hoping that the Tories replace Labour, while also advising people to vote BNP where they run a candidate.

In the longer term, it will obviously be necessary for a party with a greater understanding of the problems that Islam, in particular, presents to emerge, and, hopefully, enter government. Whether this will be the BNP is unclear - they clearly have an ongoing image problem, and will never get a positive or even neutral response from the MSM, so perhaps we may see a new anti-Islamification party emerge, as has happened in the Netherlands, for example.
