What do all these evil maniacs have in common?

If it’s Islam, you can count on the BBC and the Guardian not to mention it

More bad publicity for the Islamic State’s ‘Kafir Tiny Tots and Babycare Service’. A burka-clad madwoman wandering through the streets of Moscow swinging a decapitated toddler’s head while shouting ‘Allahu akbar’ is just the kind of image the company wished to dispel. You begin to doubt its vetting procedures for potential nannies, and also whether or not it has a valid Investors In People certificate.

The less than conscientious nanny was from Samarkand in Uzbekistan (which last had a half-decent government in about 1990). ‘I want your death,’ she screamed at the Muscovites, waving the poor child’s head about. The madwoman is now in prison and already, I daresay, the BBC and the Guardian are formulating a means by which her actions can be conveniently detached from the faith of which she is a particularly vigorous adherent. Nothing to do with Islam. Just madness. As if these two states of mind were mutually exclusive.

We are back with the liberals, the people who think that something is a circle when it isn’t a circle. The BBC managed to deliver a series of three reports — the top story of the day — on the conviction of the Muslim child sex abusers and rapists from Rotherham, without at any point mentioning the words ‘Islam’ or ‘Muslim’. They were just yer every-day ordinary British folk, then.

I mentioned this fact in a short Sunday Times article and a small handful of liberals objected. What relevance is their religion? Well, on one count, it was the fact that they were Muslims which prevented, for politically correct reasons, the social services and the police doing anything about it for a decade or longer. But even then I might swallow the libtard argument were it not for the fact that this was not a one-off. Very far from it. The same vile abuse has happened up and down the country and the one thing the perpetrators had in common was their religion. If there had been 15 separate incidents of, say, Christadelphian or Methodist gangs raping and sexually abusing children then I suspect that the BBC might have found this strange thing that they all had in common worthy of comment and possibly even investigation.

[Alt-Text]


Some of the liberals went on to assert that the commonality was cultural rather than religious — but it wasn’t, not in the other places away from Rotherham. The commonality was Islam and the attacks were occasioned as a consequence partly of its somewhat tendentious view of women and what one should be allowed to do with them, and its similarly dismissive view of humans who are not Muslim (all the victims were non-Muslim). Nor were the horrific sexual assaults on the continental mainland — the mass attacks at Cologne railway station on New Year’s Eve being the most infamous, but there have been many others — perpetrated by Pakistanis or Bangladeshis, but by North Africans and Arabs. But then the BBC didn’t care to report the identity of those people, either, showing a remarkable lack of curiosity.

There are plenty of Muslims brave enough to admit that there may be something within the faith which facilitates this sort of behaviour, just as there are Muslims who are brave enough to admit that the religion occasionally shows the teensiest little bit of anti-Semitic sentiment. But not the white liberals. They’re still staring at a squiggly line, desperate to believe it’s a circle.

Meanwhile, just to prove that Islam does not have the monopoly on vile acts of extremism, the police have been called in to sort out a very dangerous presence in our midst, a 15-year-old Hampshire boy called Joe Taylor. Teenagers get up lots of bad stuff, of course — but even so, what Joe did frankly beggars belief. He was caught by staff at his school in Hedge End looking up on the internet a website so repulsive that the teacher concerned must have gagged before he reported the matter to the headmistress.

Yes, it was the website of the United Kingdom Independence Party. Within hours the old bill were hammering on his front door, desperate to quiz both Joe and his dad, Mick, about extremism. Mick admitted he had voted Ukip in the past, but in an act of leniency or laxity — you decide — the police decided against pressing charges for this brazen crime. Mr Taylor later told the press: ‘We are turning into a police state and I am worried that everyone is being snooped on now. Ukip is being flagged as an extremist website, like Islamic State. But have they ever beheaded anyone?’

I don’t know Mick, but one of them once suggested that women knew where the mustard pot was kept, which is almost as bad as decapitating someone. In a sense, it is like decapitating an entire gender: that is what they are good for, women — locating the mustard pot. Just that and cleaning behind the fridge. Nothing else.

Aah, in a perfect world you might imagine that a teacher, having observed a pupil checking out the manifesto of a mainstream political party in his spare time, would have commended him for the interest he was taking in the wider world.

But not today’s lot — in the state sector at least. Our state schools are stuffed to the gills with embittered and furious libtards frantically trying to tell each other that the squiggly thing before them, drawn by an imbecile on graph paper, is a circle. They are perfectly capable of equating a political party which has views with which they would ineptly contend with the head-chopping maniacs of the Islamic State. Or, for that matter, with any one of a number of extremist Islamic groups which may draw the line at head-chopping but nonetheless believe that we should abide under a caliphate and that kafirs are no better than cattle.

    Thank you Rod one of the few sane voices in what seems an ever more deluded world,the story that gave me most pleasure this week was the Jude Law fiasco.after he and his coterie of halo hunting luvvies had done their bit in Calais to explain why all those lovely engineers and doctors should be let into the UK there was an incident.Yup the gimmegrants were so grateful that they mugged and robbed his security minders and the luvvies had to hide on a bus.

  • Ali_Bertarian

    When all those men of a certain profession, having the same religion, were molesting children, and it was covered up by the hierarchy of that profession, did the BBC and the Guardian leave out the words “Catholic,” “priest,” and “Church?”

    • Jack_H

      Not to mention gleefully allowing commentators and comedians a free reign to ascribe collective guilt and throw suspicion on all Catholic Priests and Lay Workers……with compete impunity.

        • Jack_H

          Thanks for the correction,if anyone is curious in my post originally I incorrectly used reign.

          • Suzy61

            We all do it. Sometimes we spot it before we post, sometimes not, but the message is always more important than the spelling ;). No disrespect to post_x_it… we all get the urge to correct and if done politely, it should be appreciated.

          • https://chaunceytinker.wordpress.com/ Chauncey Tinker

            and compete…

            Reign is a very frequent “freudian” slip, because it actually makes a bit of sense.

          • Jack_H

            Thanks for the correction,I have now replaced it.

    • RWJetzt

      It’s almost as if the BBC and Guardian were controlled by a force which hates both Christianity and homogenous White nations. Hmm… now is there any group that might fit that description…?

      • BritishPatriot

        Oh heck yes, but God forbid you actually come right out and name them online 😉

        PS: I wonder how many of the people who upvoted you think you’re referring to Muslims?

  • NickG

    kafirs are no better than cattle.

    Ah, a clear reference to that Backpfeifengesicht of note, Medhi Hasan.

  • Whiteflighter

    Rod, you do make a fundamental mistake in your otherwise excellent piece. As you say, the commonality is Islam, but you appear to make a separation between the religion of Islam and culture. I would argue that both are inseparable even if not all votaries of the religion subscribe to all aspects of the culture.

  • General_Patten

    The BBC have a lot to answer for! Recently they have received £2 million from the EU. Expect their usual balanced views and opinion.

  • Jack_H

    In a final irony,the Social services in Rotherham removed children from a local foster home because the owners of the home were Ukip supporters,the same social services who turned their backs on the most vulnerable children when they fell prey to these disgusting gangs for fear of being called ‘Racist’………..horrifying!

    • beelzebub

      It’s unbearable.

    • MikeF

      Not irony – sectarian hypocrisy that is prepared to compromise the welfare of children to justify itself.

    • Cyril Sneer

      The fun with these people I could have with some rope and a spare lamp post or two.

    • Germainecousin

      But the majority of your country men and women simply do not care. They like to see themselves as tolerant but in truth they are merely indifferent. That footballer was a disgrace, to himself, to his family and indeed his country, but his crime is nowhere near being of the same magnitude as Rotherham, Oxford, Newcastle etc etc. However it is his crime, the actions of solitary man that the papers, bought by Joe public are focusing on and from what I can tell, the majority of the people are simply not bothered. It is really just very depressing.

  • BillRees

    The more you learn about Islam, the more you realise that it is really a deeply fascist political ideology posing as a religion.

    • Hippograd

      “Fascism” is nationalistic and race-based. Islam is like communism: internationalist and very happy to welcome all races to the struggle for a better world. Why else do you think the Jewish community — very hostile to fascism, or so the rumours run — have worked so hard to make Muslims welcome in the so-called west?

      • CRSM

        Because, deep down, the differences in the beliefs of the two religions are minuscule.
        What is different however, is that the Jewish communities, throughout Europe at least, have had centuries to learn to live peacefully in a basically Christian region. Whether or not Islam can manage the same thing is debatable.

        There may of course be an occult agenda among certain Jewish groups to use Islam for their own purposes. Some may say that, I could not possibly comment.

        • Hippograd

          is that the Jewish communities, throughout Europe at least, have had centuries to learn to live peacefully in a basically Christian region

          Karl Marx? Leon Trotsky? Sigmund Freud? Saul Alinksy? The neo-cons?

          I don’t think peace or Christianity is something that flourishes in the presence of people like that.

    • milford

      I’m beginning to think that’s why the EU want Islam to overtake western secular society. Populations must be easier to control under such a tyrannical so-called religion.
      It will also water down each individual country’s identity – all the better to merge with the EU super-state. Sovereign countries are the eggs, the EU is the omelette and Islam is the oil they’re going to fry us in.

      • Mary Ann

        IMHO you have a persecution complex, the idea that refugees are being encouraged to come here to destroy our way of life would be hilarious if it wasn’t so, well why on earth would the White Christian governments want to be overthrown by Muslims.

        • milford

          It’s called social engineering. Bringing in another culture waters down the cultures of the sovereign states making them easier to assimilate into an EU super-state. It’s about breaking eggs to make an omelette. I didn’t say the governments will be overthrown, they’ll bring in Muslim place-men to work alongside them. It’s naïve to take everything on face value. because politicians don’t tell us everything they have planned. Just because I’m paranoid doesn’t mean it’s not happening.

          • Mary Ann

            Well at least you admit to being paranoid.

          • milford

            Yes and it’s nice to see you using words with more than two syllables 😉

          • Mary Ann
          • Sue Smith

            You are part of the problem; move on please.

          • Mr B J Mann

            As Confucius say: just because his paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t out to get you.

            Or was it Yoda?!

            Anyway, I’d think twice about a Daesh of Cologne before going out without your Osama™® Bin Liner on.

        • Leftism is a societal cancer

          “White Christian governments” – where are these governments?

          • James Chilton

            Vatican City – which has hideous walls around it to keep out the atheists.

          • Sanctimony

            More like a safe haven for paedophile cardinals… Law, Pell etc…

          • Sue Smith

            And muslims.

          • James Chilton

            According to the pope, Christian countries shouldn’t build barriers to keep out illegal immigrants etc. It’s uncharitable to do so. To state the obvious: He doesn’t practise what he preaches in Vatican City.

        • Cyril Sneer

          You have an awful lot to learn.

        • LittleRedRidingHood

          I do beg your pardon Mary Ann but they have been encouraged to come here by frau Merkel and every other libtard. Does the liberal mental disorder now wipe memories as well.
          The fact that they are destroying our societies is plain to see.
          In addition. You show me a white Christian government anywhere in the western world.
          You must have skipped that page in the libtards handbook that promotes secularism and now Islamism above all else.

        • GripperStebson

          Divide and rule. Not heard of it?

          Create a divided nation by pitting groups off against each other then implement Draconian measures to “keep the peace”.

          If you don’t realise they’re already tightening the grip in surveillance terms then you’re very naive indeed. The police are already monitoring social media and making arrests. Doesn’t that have any Stasi-like undertones to you?

          It doesn’t sound like they’re keen to maintain free speech all that much longer. A pretty fundamental change in our way of life.

          But, hey, it’s just all paranoia.

        • FMA

          A lot of these right-wingers blame it on a Jewish plot to destroy the Gentiles… no, really. Only they’re too spineless to actually come right out and say it.

        • Mr B J Mann

          YOUR idea that refugees are NOT being encouraged to come here to destroy our
          way of life would be hilarious if it wasn’t so, well, evidenced by Labour admissions that it was done to rub the “Right’s” nose in “diversity” and “multi”-culturalism, and boost the Left’s client base and electoral support!

          Why on earth would
          the White Christian governments want to be overthrown by Muslims?

          Because they aren’t Christian.

          And because they are so blinkered and naive that they can’t see beyond the first step of overthrowing “Right-wing” governments, to the bleedin obvious unintended consequence of the Right Wing, Fasc!st, Fundam€ntalist H0mophobic, m!sogynist !slamists overthrowing the Left Wing governments, throwing stones at feminists, and throwing g-ys over the parapets of tower blocks!

    • JohnCrichton89

      The same could be said of Christianity, whilst I hate it when people provide backhanded apologetics for Islam with this comparison, it is true with what you say. The difference is, and I’m saying this as an Atheist, Islam encourages mass murder, suicide, slavery, rape and paedophilia as a means to spread. And this list is by no means exhaustive. If Satan existed and created a religion, I fail to see how it would differ very much from Islam.

  • GripperStebson

    If only it were the BBC. I watched a piece on Channel Four News the other night where they were interviewing a Médecins Sans Frontières spokeswoman on the Macedonian border. Apparently it was an “unfolding humanitarian crisis” with thousands sleeping in freezing conditions without shelter. “Over fifty percent are women and children” she insisted – as they then cut to a clip filmed earlier in the day containing dozens and dozens of military-age men with a single solitary hijab wearing woman positioned conveniently in the front demanding their human rights (to claim houses and benefits in Germany) be respected.

    Quite how they all keep straight faces I’ll never know.

    • Suzy61

      I saw it myself – exactly as you describe.

      Still, if there were no ‘refugees’ there would be no NGO’s coining it in.

      • GripperStebson

        A regretable consequence of the nationalisation of vast swathes of the charity sector. In the past charities rattled a few tins and sold donated clothes in shops to generate money. Now they have industrialised public relations departments whose sole objective is to “raise awareness” which boils down ideally to getting a couple of minutes on a BBC breakfast programme or Sky News tearing at our heartstrings and demanding “something be done”. That something is invariably the coughing up of large bundles of cash by the taxpayer and hosing it some photogenic victim’s direction.

        That ghastly crook Batmanghelidjh being the perfect embodiment of all that is wrong with charities these days.

        • Suzy61

          I could not agree more.

    • Pip

      If lying was a crime those running the BBC, Sky and Ch4 News would be serving time.

      • GripperStebson

        It is a crime: it’s called treason when the future of your country is being destroyed by a never-ending stream of multi-cultural, mass immigration, pro-Islam, pro-EU garbage.

    • eat your greens

      If you needed a running leftard commentary on the migrant crisis unfolding in other countries, I recommend you read Breibart.

        And more importantly, the two party Westmonster system cannot host a meaningful debate regarding our continued membership within the EU. Parliament has failed us yet again.

    • Mr B J Mann

      Even if it was 50%, and even if it was only four kids per family, that’s 40% kids, 10% wives, 10% husbands, 40% (other) males of fighting age.

      Assuming the married males (of fighting age) only had one wife each.

      And assuming the kids weren’t of an age they hadn’t been through the jihad, terrorism and beheading training schools (so that would be over threes!).

      Then again, if the men with wives had four each!

    What they have in common — as I’m sure the Board of Deputies will be happy to remind you, Rod — is that they are vulnerable human beings traumatized by life among the evil goys white racists and Islamophobes such as yourself. The wonder isn’t that they crack under the pressure occasionally: the wonder is that it doesn’t happen more often.

    Sajid Javid for PM!

    • GripperStebson

      If only there were Islamic countries to which they could go and seek refuge.

      I’m sure if my religion were such a focal point of my life, almost to the exclusion of everything else, I’d pretty much conclude that me moving to a country that lives under my desired religion and not expecting the country I’m in to change its entire religious landscape might just be the slightly easier path to follow.

      Clearly I would make a pretty piss-poor Muslim.

      • Hippograd

        Clearly I would make a pretty piss-poor Muslim.

        Actually, I think you would. All presently Muslim nations were once majority kaffir. And kaffir nations like the UK and US are offering lots of free stuff to Allah’s faithful, enabling much higher birth-rates than the kaffir are maintaining.

    • LittleRedRidingHood

      I can only conclude that Rod is correct considering you have immediately deployed the racist bigot and islamaphobe argument. Poor little snowflakes can’t enter debate and defend their religion from criticism without resorting to violence.

      • Hippograd

        I’m sorry for being violent. But as you note, I am a poor little Muslim snowflake and I have no other way of expressing myself.

        Brace yourself for more violence:

          Don’t apologise. You are obviously also challenged in certain areas as you valiantly miss the point. I don’t care if it’s the jooooooooos.
          All you are saying is the Muslims are the fall guys of the Jews, who carry out their violence at the behest of their Jewish overlords.
          No. I’m sorry. Violence is so ingrained in Islamic society it is the norm.
          We all know that to be true.

          • Hippograd

            I don’t care if it’s the jooooooooos.

            Violence is so ingrained in Islamic society it is the norm. We all know that to be true.

            Well, yes. As I said: it’s the only way Muslims like me have of expressing ourselves. That’s why the Jewish community, as I also said, are so opposed to our presence in the West:

            Nicely sidestepped. The fact that the Jews use you is of no consequence. The fact still remains that across the globe adherence to Islam manifests in violence.
            Does that mean all muslims are violent, no, but the problem remains none the less.

          • Hippograd

            Sidestepping is a Muslim speciality, dear. We’re nearly as good at that as we are at violence.

            Does that mean all muslims are violent, no, but the problem remains none the less.

            Yes, the problem remains. How fortunate we are that the Jewish community don’t allow mass immigration by Muslims into Israel. And obviously the Jewish community urge other non-Muslim nations to follow their lead.

            Keep quoting the old testament, no one actually lives the old testament in Christianity.
            One thing is for sure, only your so called prophet and the dengenerates who follow his word (not Gods) think he was the final prophet. How could anyone think anything else as they fell under the sword of the mohamedan.

          • JabbaPapa

            Violence is so ingrained in Islamic society it is the norm. We all know that to be true.

            Well, yes. As I said: it’s the only way Muslims like me have of expressing ourselves.

            Crikey — you’ve actually committed a crime by posting that “justification” of racist and/or religious motivated violence.

            To answer the author’s question — what all of these evil maniacs have in common is the gross immorality that you have exhibited.

          • Hippograd

            From a culture that invented the atom bomb, the concentration camp and the abortion clinic, I think I can cope with the accusation of “gross immorality”, already.

          • JabbaPapa

            Neither you nor I are “a culture”.

          • Hippograd

            Neither you nor I can escape culture. It is simply a matter of which you choose to embrace.

  • MikeF

    The same principle applies to violence within the Muslim ‘community’. Remember that incident a couple of weeks or so ago in which the ‘reader’ at a Mosque somewhere in the Manchester area was murdered in the street just outside it? Obviously an atrocious incident involving the death of an innocent individual but where is the coverage of it now in the national media? Nowhere – because it quickly became known that the attacker was another Muslim hence there was no mileage in beating the drum about ‘Islamophobia’ (which does not exist but let’s leave that aside for the moment). The whole way in the media coves violence by and where it occurs against Muslims is for the most part an exercise in the most blatant, shameless, sectarian hypocrisy.
    That is because, of course, quite another agenda is at play – the attempt to denigrate Western society as inherently ‘racist’ (cultural Marxist concept but let’s leave that aside as well) in order to justify the suppression of the political culture of democracy and freedom of speech which it developed. As soon as you understand that ‘anti-racism’ is nothing to do with protecting anybody – least of all members of ethnic or religious minorities – from violence or abuse then you also appreciate that there is a malicious and purposive logic to what otherwise appears irrational and inconsistent.

    • Mary Ann

      Most murders get very little media attention, unless there is the possibility of selling newspapers in it.

      • MikeF

        Or of using it to proselytise an agenda.

        • Oedipus Rex

          Mike, I generally agree with your point but it is true that the BBC has reported again today about that particular murder:

          http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-manchester-35714982

          But it’s also true that you could sense that when the crime was first reported there was a presumption of a so-called ‘hate crime’.

          So with the mosque fires at Muswell Hill and Morden. Gone awfully quiet now…

          Yet there have been attacks by Sunni extremists on Shias and their mosques

          http://blogs.spectator.co.uk/2015/08/muslims-in-the-uk-are-now-attacking-mosques-does-that-make-them-islamophobic/

          It is reported, but without the hysteria that comes with this almost willed for setting up of ‘Islamophobic’ crime.
          As you say, it is to proselytise a political/cultural outlook (can’t stand the word ‘agenda’!!)

          • MikeF

            Thanks – yes I noticed there was a report on the BBC website after I wrote that post. Fair enough – but nothing about ‘hate’ or ‘Islamophobia’ or ‘racism’ and you can guess that nothing but the basic facts will be reported from now on because it is patently not an incident that can used for polemical purposes.
            Interesting you mentioned the Muswell Hill fire – the one where the supposed arsonists knew just where to daub the letters ‘EDL’ so they would not burn off but which disappeared from the media within a matter of days. But then it had served its purpose of deflecting attention from the murder of Lee Rigby. Has there even been published forensic analysis of how that fire was started? I have never seen anhy mention of one – I wonder why.

    • Andrew Cole

      Islamaphobia does exist as does Racism, Bigotry and Xenophpbia. The problem isn’t that they are reporting things that don’t exist because they do.

      The problem is that the libtards (and non libtards) utilise the existence in small minorities of the population to include anything on the subject thus anyone who criticises immigration or the EU or extremists or radicals is fair game to be lumped in with the NF.

      • MikeF

        The term ‘Islamophobia’ is mock-analytical gibberish that parodies the sound and appearance of proper scientific terminology to lend a spurious air of objectivity and intellectual credibility to what is, in reality, just sectarian special pleading. Its purpose is not to elucidate but intimidate. It should be expunged from the language. Odd how these ‘phobias’ only exist when they refer to groups against whom supposed prejudice can be used by the left to support the agenda I describe above. Ever hear of ‘Evangelicalprotestantophobia’ – no thought not.

        • Andrew Cole

          The use of the word “Islamophobia” is intentionally to close down any debate against “radicalised Islam” as being an attack against the religion itself rather than against those who interpret the religion the way that ISIL and “radicals” do.

          If some christians were practising the text “an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth” would they portray any criticism of that practise as attacking christianity itself?

        • James Chilton

          Compliments on your comment: it’s lucid, robust, and well reasoned.

        • JabbaPapa

          Well, Islamophobia as such does exist, as does Christianophobia — although one does hate all of these newfangled -phobia words — but its existence cancels your points not in the slightest, because its extensive misuse by the loony left, regardless of their typical Christianophobic and outright anti-religion attitudes otherwise, is a clear example of the intrinsically irrational nature of the lefty “liberal” position — but of course one is not surprised by this, when one sees that they promote a kind of liberal totalitarian ideological dictatorship, the cognitive dissonance of which should be obvious to all.

          • LittleRedRidingHood

            I disagree. These phobias do not exist. They are not afraid of any of these things. What does exist is discrimination and persecution, usually committed by the very people who claim to be on the receiving end of such phobias.

          • UncleTits

            Indeed. There is a notable absence of ‘Buddhaphobia’ and ‘Sikhaphobia’ on the political landscape. All normal people can see how this game is being played and how vile the players are.

            You’re welcome to disagree with me … my caveat “one does hate all of these newfangled -phobia words” wasn’t written as a fig leaf.

          • LittleRedRidingHood

            I understood your words. The first sentence is what I disagree with. You are suggest that people have an irrational fear of Christianity when nothing could be further for, the truth. It is not fear, it is unbridled hate. Whilst on the other hand supposed islamaphobia can be cited for nothing more than looking at someone.

      • Father Todd Untious

        Where is this established? Men between 18and 35 make up just 10% of the population. So you suggest they are 40 times more likely to be migrants. For instance when looking at the migrants on TV you would see for instance 40 young men forcevery child or old woman. You are wrong for whatever cynical reason.

          The receiving authorities in Germany and Sweden have said that 70% are young men. You assume that TV news shows you the reality. They show what they think makes good TV. A crying child is a lot more sympathetic news tv than a bunch of surly youths. TV news shows you what the camerman was directed to point his camera at and that is all.

          As to why – it is obvious. They are the gender and age group which is least risk averse and most daring. They are VERY able to defend themselves if need be and culturally the originating populations see their women as chattels to be kept at home. Furthermore, young males are best able to put up with the rigours of walking long distances and putting up with sleeping in the open. Have you never looked at the makeup of the people in the Calais Jungle – almost all males and all young.

  • Sean L

    *Some of the liberals went on to assert that the commonality was cultural rather than religious*

    Distinguishing “culture” from “religion” in this context is just playing with words: in what precisely does this cultural commonality consist that isn’t already founded on Islam? Properly understood, Islam, in common with other religions, even C of E, is principally a form of *membership*, community, something to which one *belongs*, owes allegiance. No cultural practice in and of itself could exert a greater “commonality” than the *brotherhood* enjoined by Islam. Not even language, diet, or marrying one’s cousins. Otherwise their cultural tastes and habits are generally no different to those of the natives.

    By contrast, the C of E, or English form of membership, is founded on *neighbourhood*. Thus England functions as a society of strangers. That’s its strength, in that people who keep their distance are less likely to come to blows with each other. Thus our relative peace and political stability compared with more closely knit communities. But also a weakness when faced with a more tightly bound community in our midst who can readily unite against a common enemy. Just as siblings will fight like cat and dog but instantly join forces against an outsider. Which is why any number of natives can be victims of racial or religiously motivated violence without so much as a whimper. Call it “cultural”, same difference…

    • Margot5000

      Yasmin Alibhai-Brown had an interesting article in the Independent recently (29 Feb) criticising Sharia courts. Why on earth are Sharia courts not illegal in this country! Am waiting for the moment that YAB realises it IS the religion. Interestingly on the page before her article there was one by Robert Fisk about Sabra and Shatila – horror long before IS took centre stage and not exactly good PR for any religion. We were never likely to see a Methodist or Baptist or CofE horror story here because there was no question of their not going by the Rule of Law – something which immigrants were able to avoid on cultural grounds. That this country has thousands of females that have had FGM is incredible. It was unfortunate that the small Jewish community had been able to avoid things such as stunning before killing without anything being said (Hitler helped of course) as this allowed the large Islamic immigrant community to be able to claim cultural exceptions to the Rule of Law. And here we are.

      One should probably read the legislation on inciting religious hatred in the amendment to the crime and disorder act in 2006 before seeking to point out that Muslim men seem to have prey on poor white girls for s e x in disproportionate numbers, notwithstanding that the occasional footballer from Sunderland may get jailed for fiddling with under-aged girls too.

      Muslim men in Britain are occupying HM Prison cells at a rate three times what one would expect according to their numbers in society and seem uniquely to be running these horrible p imp ing rings and are preying on very large numbers of poor, deprived girls who are under aged and respond for some reason to their offers of drugs, alcohol and paltry attentions. One ought to be able to say so without fear that the Police may arrive at your door at five in the morning to question you about your remarks.

  • http://rantingoldgit.blogspot.co.uk/ Arthur Sparknottle

    On the issue of the number of places in England affected by the crime of Muslim men pimping under aged girls for prostitution and sexual abuse. I am sure that it exists wherever there are substantial numbers of Pakistani males. There have so far been a number of high profile trials but there are more in the pipeline. In Newcastle there have been thirty one arrests, 29 of them males of the requisite background and two females. The enquiry there has not yet concluded but it will probably blow Rotherham out of the top spot it has occupied of late.

    It is my belief that the places with the requisite population where there have not yet been enquiries or trials just have not been looking. They are probably in the same state that Rotherham was in six years ago. I’m wondering why London has not had a trial. Is it because no poor white girls are exploited for se x there by these men, or because the police and local officials are too interested in ‘community relations’ and non-racism to allow themselves to look at what is going on in plain sight?

        I really don’t know how you can overcome that kind of ideological power, except with an even more powerful contradictory image. And we have plenty of those!!

        • fojap

          A powerful counter image is indeed what is needed. The Baroque movement arose in response to the Reformation. But it needs to be thought through, which I don’t really see happening. Every time I see something by Pamela Geller or something similar I think to myself, “You’re not helping.”

    The final paragraph – a description of a typical Question Time audience? Every single one of them, when asked (or even when not asked, as if it confers some greater degree of integrity) likes to tell us they are teachers, doctors, nurses….or God help us, NHS/Council Administrators. All balanced out nicely with a handful of angry, inarticulate fat people (usually Ukippers) who the others can all enjoy sneering at.

    • Bad Lad

      The lefties love a good sneer don’t they? These inarticulate, fat people are usually the working classes who they lyingly claim to care about. In fact, of course, the working class are mere cannon fodder to them suitable for mockery, disdain by leftists in government and also for being thrown to Muslims as toys.

      • Suzy61

        Indeed. Blessed are the poor of the world – unless you are British, white, working-class and fearful that you will never amount to much because, however hard you work, you will only ever be worth the lesser sum that your boss will pay to an immigrant.

        Mass immigration equals cheap Labour for the corporates – which should have the lefties up in arms – instead they clap like seals at the concept of ‘open borders’. Notwithstanding, the hypocrites all have doors and locks on their homes to discern who should be invited in and who should not (and would argue it is perfectly reasonable to do so).

        We can take heart, I hope, that the fat, inarticulate and angry are not as green as cabbage-looking.

          When the only source of wealth for a person is their own labour to deliberately make that labour worth less is tantamount to theft.As I have pointed out with boring frequency the huge numbers of Eastern Europeans who have come here are more likely to be in low paid work and claiming in work benefits than the General Population,the Governments own statistics clearly point this out.The effect of this is to compress incomes at the bottom of the labour market,It causes the greatest hardship for those on minimum wage and the effects lessen as you go up the earnings ladder until you go over 80K a year,then the negatives are cancelled out and you begin to benefit from low cost services from the cheap labour.It is a scandal.The latest target of our elites is the London Cab trade,a group of men who undertook years training and provided a very high quality service,are having their livelihoods destroyed by an app owned by Goldman Sachs and are being replaced by a largely immigrant work force.

    I have a regular chat with the Lady Easter. She’s well on with her work now and hope everyone is looking forward to her festival in three weeks or so, anyway, she has told me that it was the Scandinavian God, Loki, who started this Islam thing, about thirteen hundred years ago. Loki went on his hols to Arabia and fell in with this chap Mohammed, who was really jealous of the way that the Christians were taking over big bits of Europe. Anyway Loki called himself ‘Allah’ and this chap Mohammed fell for Loki’s story about being the only God, blah blah. In a minute. Everything, hook, line, sinker, bait……everything really. All the English and the Scandinavian Gods were’nt best pleased, but, that’s Loki, isn’t it. It didn’t work out well, did it. Those poor Moslem people, I mean, being fooled all this time. Anyway, must dash. Lady Easter hopes you all like Easter eggs. Bless you all. Bye!

        I’m sure you know that’s the reason that the Israelis are hunting so assiduously for any ossuary that might be marked ‘Jesus’.

          It’s already been found, but empty. Together with many members of JC’s family. The odds on this combination of names being found together are literally tens of thousands to one against.
          The assumption being that the bones of JC were taken by the Templers, and finally fetched up in the Vatican.

          • Jackthesmilingblack

            No, the ossuary was empty. Although a scraping may e be sufficient for a DNA sample. Shame the grave of that Roman soldier in northern Germany was destroyed in WWII bombing as there could have been a match. You remember, the handsome Roman officer billeted down the street from Jesus’ dear mama. Immaculate conception, gimme a break.

    There is nothing to quarrel with in this article. The same points have been made over again by others notably Douglas Murray. However it seems to make no difference whatsoever to the disgustingly bias and misleading reporting of the migrant crisis. The whole nonsense in the so called Calais jungle. This group of uninvited campers in the main men of fighting age from countries all of which ruled under the mayhem that is Islam constantly being described by teary eyed and angst ridden reporters as being desperate, they are victims we the west are responsible for that and should be ashamed of ourselves. The facts are that these are aggressive, violent and determined people with gob smacking levels of entitlement and demands. Today as every other day we hear of shocking conditions, human faeces everywhere, piles of rotting stinking garbage strewn about the place. Whose fault is this, the French heartless and cruel authorities not the indolence of those creating these disgusting conditions. If they can organise themselves to travel illegally from their home countries cannot they not agree some collective rules to keep the camp clean and more hygienic. This is a travesty of people who by virtue of their religion consider themselves superior in every way but who cannot take personal or collective responsibility fir themselves and who happily push their children to the front of each televised confrontation with the authorities to provide a propaganda advantage thankfully received and distributed by western media. On a slightly different note, several weeks ago on question time the date of the EU referendum having just been announced the issue was first up. Out of five panel members four were firmly for staying in and one was sitting on the fence admitting he didn’t know what he would vote. This blatant and unashamed bias of the BBC is shocking.

    It’s all in the script. Now note they are blaming Russian bombing of muslims in Syria. The moment something like this happens they must go straight to the mosque she attends – before it gets out to the press..
    Islam is not a private religion – it is highly social and the mosque is the place ( in Jeddah for example there are almost no public parks as everyone goes to the Mosque to socialize.) The Imam and others will know all about her. Many of the attackers have got their weapons from the mosque. If they delay they give the Imam time to cover it all up and lie comprehensively. This has happened every time – Paris, Sydney, Boston, Ohio,….

    Another BBC article, from last month, which resolutely refuses to mention the words “Islam” or “Muslim”: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-35560515 Not on such a serious issue, granted, but it’s still a classic of the genre.

    • JohnJ

      The last few weeks the ABC in Australia ( same as BBC in UK) has been showing a documentary on Australian forces in Afghanistan. So far – as much as I can notice – Islam and Muslim has never been mentioned. Event though they talk about Al Qaeda and Taliban. To never mention the driving ideology – the basic reason, the MO – is astounding. But the best bit was the leader of the Australia Forces saying that “we didn’t know about Afghanistan”. And still they don’t. How did we all become so stupid. ISIS will walk over us.

    In my local college of further education a departmental head pondered, seriously, whether a student should be reported to the police for telling a member of staff that he believed in “British jobs for British workers”, a statement supposed to mark him as a race-hater. That this position was espoused in a speech by Gordon Brown, former Prime Minister seemed to have been forgotten. This is how terrified the authorities are that an uncontrollable anti-immigrant mob will form around such ideas…which confirms that the ‘house the world’ politicians know that they should have thought a lot harder about how the electorate might react to having millions of foreigners thrust into their towns, schools, hospitals and workplaces.

            Funny that. I fell out with my Filipina girlfriend after I insisted she changed £100 of the money I sent her into pounds in order to show to the immigration officer that she had the means to return home should there be a mishap. They would not have let her in without this assurance, and it took us five years, and several trips to Manila (from her home about the same distance as from England to Rome) just to get a tourist visa for her. In the end, I called it all off when I found she’d already spent the money I sent her. Considering how very difficult the British authorities were making it for us, I needed to be able to trust her to hang on to several hundred pounds for months without succumbing to demands from her family and friends. For me to get a three week visa to her country, I needed a fiver and could fill the forms in on the plane.

            Seems only the honest get penalised, and the shafters get let in scot free. Maybe we should be looking at the competence of the Home Office and the border services before we make demands on France to do our border protection for us?

          • Jackthesmilingblack

            The attitude of British embassy staff in say Manila is nothing short of disgraceful. When pressed they will admit that their reluctance to issue a tourist visa to a Filipina is the unfounded suspicion that “immoral purposes” is the motive behind the application. Which effectively brands the applicant as *hore and her boy friend as *imp. If you’re looking for an example of racism, look no further.

            Feminists regard marriage as I understand it as demeaning to women and a form of prostitution, which is why they redefined it to enable it to exclude men, unless they are gay. It is the culture even Conservatives have fostered in recent years, and Labour, Green and Liberal Democrat conventionalists take this as gospel.

            It is a trade-off. At the moment, my culture offers her a degree of material stability, a strong sense of equality of status and responsibility for the less fortunate, a very rich cultural background, a pleasant green and fertile land with no serious natural dangers. Her culture offers me a reliable source of friendship, love and companionship, the hope that an old man with the right attitude and spirit can still attract a beautiful young woman, a sense of family, a sense of humour that can make light of adversity. We both share a common connection through the Catholic Church with all its beauty, its rituals and its understanding of human community.

            In our perverted society, this sort of trade-off is seen as a form of prostitution.

          • Jackthesmilingblack

            Your experience, with variations, is all too common, particularly for the Philippines and Thailand. So if you do go the foreign born spouse route, do not on any account bring her back to live with you in Britain, because feminism Brit style will rapidly turn her into the type of person you went international to avoid.
            But all is not lost if you find British women too masculine and confrontational. Try Japan where English gentleman is flavor of the month, this month and every month. As Japan is on a similar economic status to Britain, you are far less likely to experience the problems described in your first message.

        Definitely! Isn’t it a great feeling to fight back, even in small daily ways? I first met the idea in David Abbott’s review of his new ”Offensive Diatribes” where he urges us all to go on the offensive. Once a critical mass of ordinary citizens feel capable of speaking the truth in public things will move faster.

        A friend sent me this great quote:

        ”Where a community has embarked upon organized lying on principle, and not only with respect to particulars, can truthfulness as such, unsupported by the distorting forces of power and opinion, become a political factor of the first order.

        Where everybody lies about everything of importance the truthteller, whether he knows it or not, has begun to act.”

        Agreed – it’s still very dangerous to speak publicly especially in govt service. If you’re financially independent and self-employed it’s much easier.

        But we can be clever about it and we can keep safe. Write challenging letters and flyers and post them anonymously. Circulate articles from critical authors and journalists – there is so much devastating material that people simply have no idea about. The other day an acquaintance was shocked when I mentioned Sweden now has one of the highest rape statistics in the world apart from Lesotho. That kind of rude awakening gets people thinking and talking.

        Form private groups with like-minded friends and brainstorm ideas. It’s not only liberating, but it starts giving other people the confidence that we can reclaim our heritage, freedoms and safety.

    • hippiepooter

      We’re (the West) is in far too advanced a state of moral imbecility to see the writing on the wall about Islam and facing the consequences of taking the necessary action to defend democracy. It’ll end up with masses of people turning to the far right and a civil war with the correctnick/Muslim axis, till they both decide to bury their differences, carve up Europe between them, and go after Jews and Christians together.

      • E.I.Cronin

        Moral imbecility is a great description of German correctniks rationalising the rape epidemic as a ”rebellion against power structures”.

We may find out shortly.

        • fojap

          “rebellion against power structures”

          As a liberal and someone who first started referring to myself as a “feminist” at the age of thirteen, which was thirty-seven years ago, watching the left support the most illiberal ideas I can think of is truly depressing. Currently, I’m experiencing a huge amount of social pressure to not see or speak about the obvious. It’s easy for me to resist because I took a huge step from the far left to embrace some of the older ideas associated with the word “liberal” back in my twenties and I’ve always been a bit of an iconoclast. Still, I can very much see how the dynamic works. Younger people on the left are shielded from the debate and are reassured that people like me who disagree are some sort of “Islamophobes,” a moral equivalent of the KKK.

          Still, I’m at a loss as to how people can see as social justice withdrawing support from working class girls and giving it to gangs of pimps who control them, make money off of them and abuse them. Or in the case at hand, someone who murders a disabled child.

          The union of the far left and the Islamists is the strangest political alliance I’ve seen in my life.

          I hope here in the U.S. we can hold back the tide against hate speech laws which are extremely handicapping since they seem to be used to keep people from speaking the truth.

          • E.I.Cronin

            You folks are so lucky to have the Constitution. I know it’s endangered by lawfare and an activist judiciary but it’s hopefully a bulwark against correct speech. There was a great anecdote by Ayaan Hirsi about a young student who rose in front of the crowd to roar out the first amendment at one of her talks, so at least some of young are discovering and testing the strength of their political inheritance.

            I’ve read some excellent discussion here about the sinister love affair between the longbeards and the far left. It makes sense to me now – a friend mentioned they’re both internationalist; both hold ideals about brotherhood and universal equality; both require submission; both in direct opposition to western civilisation and the workers revolution runs parallel to jihad. Unbelievably I heard a socialist laughing at the horror in Moscow at a social gathering. Later while discussing the callousness, we realised the victim was Christian and white – and thus dispensable.

            Like you I come from a leftist background, but in the last 4 years have discovered the depth and value of conservatism and traditional values. It’s been quite an awakening and the many vigorous BTL contributors here at the Speccie have been a huge education. Often the commentary is better than the articles although some of the regulars seem to have gone quiet.

            My hope is that in the coming years traditionalists and old guard leftists (true liberals and feminists) work together to defeat progressives. As I say earlier, the disastrous evidence is piling up and denying reality is becoming ever more difficult.

            Good Luck over there!

    Rod-

    It’s Political Islam. It is first and foremost a political system. Religion is just one head of the hydra.

    Blocking jihadists may diminish violence, but the mujahideen are only enforcers. Islam is a self-replicating political program with a complete legal, military, educational, penal, civil, family,social, and cultural code, all wrapped in the cloak of religion–a politcal-theocratic meme.

    
It’s the only govt system that has built-in instructions that command it’s followers, as a religious duty, to perpetually grow, expand, and replicate it. 



    Every adherent has a role, so blocking extremists will not stop the 
’expand, convert, and separate’ strategy that has dispossessed The Other 
all over the world–North Africa, India, Lebanon, Albania, Armenia, Balkans, etc. 



    The Koran calls this jihad by the pen, heart, and tongue which, to us, means building up the institutions of Islam. 

Cultural conversion and dispossession of a homeland comes mostly from 
the majority of adherents–the moderates, who build up the institutions of Islam–schools, hospitals, shops, mosques, financial institutions, food service and processing, etc. 



    When the population is sufficient, and as the institutions are being built, 
simultaneously comes the destruction of the institutions of ‘the other’. 
This is where the extremists come in–attacks on symbols and infrastructure of the native society–usually churches, transport, police, fire, schools, govt offices, and politicans. Muslims have never apologized for their crimes and never will.’

    In Islam, there are two forms of lying — if it advances the cause of Islam — taqeyya and kitman.

    What is called ‘sin and excess’ by other religions, is what Islam refers to as duty willed by Allah.

    Al-Takeyya is a policy whereby a Muslim may lie, deceive or omit critical truths if it promotes the spreading of Islam AND the conquest of the non-Muslim world.

    According to William P. Welty, Ph.D., al-Takeyya/Taqiyya is: “The Islamic principle of lying for the sake of Allah. Falsehoods told to prevent denigration of Islam, to protect oneself, or to promote the cause of Islam are sanctioned by the Qur’an, including lying under penalty of perjury in testimony before the United States Congress, lying or making distorted statements to the media such as claiming that Islam is a religion of peace and deceiving fellow Muslims when the one lying has deemed them to be apostates.” (1)

    Kitman – Lying by omission. An example would be when Muslim apologists quote only a fragment of verse 5:32 (that if anyone kills “it shall be as if he had killed all mankind”) while neglecting to mention that the rest of the verse (and the next) mandate murder in undefined cases of “corruption” and “mischief.”

    All supported in the Koran, the Hadiths and Islamic law.

    What did they/do they seek: “to fight against the people until they testify that none is right to be worshipped but Allah and that Muhammed is the Messenger of Allah.” (Bukhari, vol. 1, book 2, no. 25) The same statement is repeated in vol.1, book 8; vol. 4, book 56; vol. 9, book 88; vol. 9, book 96; and in other hadith collections.

    The jihad, begun by Muhammed, continues to this day. It has never been dropped or repudiated by any Muslim leader or sect. It has grown with perceived Muslim strength and ebbed with Muslim weakness. But it has never stopped.

    Rod-

    It’s Political Islam. It is first and foremost a political system. Religion is just one head of the hydra.

    Blocking jihadists may diminish violence, but the mujahideen are only enforcers. Islam is a self-replicating political program with a complete legal, military, educational, penal, civil, family,social, and cultural code, all wrapped in the cloak of religion–a politcal-theocratic meme.

    
It’s the only govt system that has built-in instructions that command it’s followers, as a religious duty, to perpetually grow, expand, and replicate it. 



    Every adherent has a role, so blocking extremists will not stop the 
’expand, convert, and separate’ strategy that has dispossessed The Other 
all over the world–North Africa, India, Lebanon, Albania, Armenia, Balkans, etc. 



    The Koran calls this jihad by the pen, heart, and tongue which, to us, means building up the institutions of Islam. 

Cultural conversion and dispossession of a homeland comes mostly from 
the majority of adherents–the moderates, who build up the institutions of Islam–schools, hospitals, shops, mosques, financial institutions, food service and processing, etc. 



    When the population is sufficient, and as the institutions are being built, 
simultaneously comes the destruction of the institutions of ‘the other’. 
This is where the extremists come in–attacks on symbols and infrastructure of the native society–usually churches, transport, police, fire, schools, govt offices, and politicans. Muslims have never apologized for their crimes and never will.’

    In Islam, there are two forms of lying — if it advances the cause of Islam — taqeyya and kitman.

    What is called ‘sin and excess’ by other religions, is what Islam refers to as duty willed by Allah.

    Al-Takeyya is a policy whereby a Muslim may lie, deceive or omit critical truths if it promotes the spreading of Islam AND the conquest of the non-Muslim world.

    According to William P. Welty, Ph.D., al-Takeyya/Taqiyya is: “The Islamic principle of lying for the sake of Allah.

      Its not racists because its not a race. Its also not a phobia because that would be the fear of the irrational. Its perfectly sane and rational to fear an ideology that preaches hate and intolerance, justfies and advocates violence and murder against those that aren’t part of the club.

    when I read this article it made me ponder the point, that at the moment Rod Liddle and Douglas Murray are able to say these things (and I wonder for how much longer.) But if Nigel Farage were to express similar sentiments the $hit would really hit the fan.

    • artemis in france

      So we should be glad that a non-politician can get away with it. Even Farage wouldn’t couch his comments as boldly as either Murray or Liddle, although undoubtedly he agrees with every word they say, as do an increasing number of people.

      • Hybird

        If we are going to get anywhere then people like Farage will have summon up the courage and speak out. It will put him in danger, of course, but it’s a proven vote winner. Geert Wilders is riding high in the Dutch polls and that’s simply because he dares to tell the truth about Islam.

    The Israelis turned their little bit of the ME into a productive democracy that actually manages to grow all sorts of crops etc. Meanwhile, the Muslims and Palestinians have turned the rest of the ME into a squalid, failed, undemocratic cesspit. And now they will do the same to Europe.

    • Hippograd

      Yes, and Israelis are putting up big fences to keep non-productive folk out. Those that do get in are not encouraged to stay.

      So obviously Israel’s staunch defenders in the West are encouraging Western nations to follow Israel’s line on mass immigration. For example:

          Perhaps you mix in very different circles but I can assure you that the only people who defend Islam ad nauseam, that I know are the lemon sucking, Lefty women who in a previous life were all single, middle aged, middle class Mother Superiors. I have one very good friend who unfortunately had a big change in her life and went from being an intelligent, light hearted, open minded, beautiful woman to being a lemon sucking, zombi speak, Lefty – seemingly only feeling at home when she is with other single, middle aged, middle class lemon sucking Lefties. I now find the relationship strained as most subjects are now off limits.
          She repeats and repeats that it is all the fault of the Main Stream Press but is unable to tell me what the problem is – is it that the “Main stream Press” lies or is that they dare to publish the stories and this just happens to make her feel uncomfortable as it disagrees with her new World View.

          Not at all.

          Like all sects, the Left falls out with itself.

          The multitude of international socialists are always squabbling amongst themselves.

          But the biggest split, far bigger than between Sunni and Shia, is between the nationalist and the internationalist socialists.

          The internationalist socialists, who were on the winning side in WW2, and have been taking over the West ever since, try to distance themselves from the national socialists by calling them the “far right” and making the “far right” a demonised hate group.

          But they are both evil left wing twins!

          • GnosticBrian

            Perhaps I’ve been unlucky but I’ve yet to find a full-on leftist who wasn’t a fascist.

            I agree with you about Sunni / Shia; but that is also true of other religions. As an outsider, it has always struck me that the sects that seem to me (in my admitted doctrinal ignorance) quite close to each other, hate each other the most. I spent one (what seemed like very long) evening in a Moscow flat being lectured on why Orthodox was the only true religion and Roman Catholics were the agents of the devil. I don’t know if it was the vodka or my being particularly obtuse but the differences seemed readily bridgeable if “love of fellow man” was given half a chance. As a mathematician, I was allowed to be atheist pro tem but they would pray for my redemption.

      Good point. Such chicanery is antithetical to classical liberal values. Perhaps old affiliations – or a sentimental memory thereof – keep Rod, like the Beeb or Obama disfavouring the word ‘Islam’ in the context of terrorist atrocities, from mentioning the word ‘left’ or ‘socialist’.

    • E.I.Cronin

      I know what you mean Chris – it’s a common complaint P.C is now so pervasive that even the alleged conservatives are in fact progressives. I used to think that old guard Labor voters and the original Greenies nursed a residual patriotism and healthy scepticism about cultural diversity extremism but now I’m not so sure. A recent survey by one of our new micro parties here in Australia found that the majority of people who clearly saw Islam as the existential threat it is were conservative voters. From memory the percentage was around 75%?

      Bear in mind Rod’s style too.

      I believe he voted Labour up until recently! I don’t mind the ‘libtard’ label – am a ex-libtard myself. Happily now fully recovered and in no danger of remission.

    • Birtles

    I accept this could have been the work of a madwoman. These are not exclusive to Islam – wasn’t Brother Roger of Taizé assassinated by a madwoman when he was conducting prayers? Every society has its murderers, and must know how to deal with them.

    However, if it is true that she uttered the words “Allahu akbar” while holding the head of the child she beheaded, then this is either a gross blasphemy which deserves every condemnation from every devout Muslim, or it is not. If this is not considered blasphemous, then the whole Islamic community stands to be condemned, especially if the authority of their scriptures or their founding prophet condones this behaviour.

    First off, I image a newly-inaugurated President Trump will decree that all Muslims under his jurisdiction should renounce their religion or face arrest, and prosecution under conspiracy and incitement laws. How many others will follow his lead? France and Russia for starters, followed perhaps by Sweden and Germany and who knows who else.

    It is now up to Muslims to speak up or stand condemned by the very God they so sully.

      If a religion offers forgiveness for sin that is not forgiveness at all then it is condoning the evil. If there is no God to forgive or God does not care then the evil done by the person is condoned by man rather than forgiven by God.

      • jeremy Morfey

        It all depends how you define God. I take a rather stronger view on God’s omnipotence than many Muslims do. Maybe they see God as merely orders given by the Angel Gabriel to some warlord, and that there is no more to it than that. Since I was raised agnostic by atheist parents, and was myself an atheist scientist in my teens, I define God as no less than the sum total of all that has ever existed, all that ever will exist, and all the forces that order the progress of creation.

        Forgiveness is the process of arresting the ongoing consequences of evil. It is not condoning evil, but rather the opposite – putting a stop to it once and for all… at least until the next time. It may feel sometimes like a powerful Danish king trying to halt the movement of sea waves, but at least he showed willing. God works by bringing courage to man to put right that which is wrong. God can do nothing on His own – He works through his agents, which in this case are the human lawmakers.

        However not all that is done in the name of God is actually God’s will. The imperfections that created the universe and define man are also the same imperfections that deny God. It is a paradox well familiar to the nihilism of Buddhism as it is to Muslim scholars who can read past the bloodlust of the Qu’ran.

          • Birtles

            Hello ignoramus. If you had the slightest knowledge of Christian theology you wouldn’t have bothered writing that. For Christians, the New Testament has complete precedence over the Old Testament. The NT represents God’s new contract with all humanity, replacing the OT which is seen, by Christians, as an account of God’s relationship with what had been his Chosen People (the Jews). The OT’s significance for Christians is that it establishes the messianic genealogy of Christ (that is, he is of the House of David), and provides predictive evidence of Christ’s divinity. For a Christian, the central tenets of their belief are to be found in the life and teaching of Christ, primarily to be found in the Gospels. Just for your own enlightenment, you might like to compare the life and teachings of Christ with those of the war-lord, killer, child rapist, torturer and polygamist, Mo. Go on, think, for a change.

          • jeremy Morfey

            I would support that. The OT is an ongoing narrative of the Jews letting God down, and God then sending all sorts of reprisals, such as the explusion from Eden, Noah’s flood, Jonah in the whale, the time in exile and predicted the fall of Jerusalem. Some, such as the Book of Judith, are every bit as nasty and bloodthirsty as anything done in the name of Mohammed. Some point to how good governance and wisdom in power is rewarded.

            The NT took a completely novel approach to redemption. Rather than eye-for-an-eye and an ongoing cycle of revenge and counter-revenge down the generations, it took the martyrdom of a visionary with the power to heal and to forgive anything, the dogged love of his followers of this vision, and the conversion of a Greek imperial jobsworth thug to someone who saw the possibilities of this new religion to bring law and order throughout all the civilised world.

            Mohammed’s claim is through a vision given to him by the Angel Gabriel, a position of great status as the steward of Abraham’s Kaaba in Mecca, and his prowess as a ruthless warlord. As a law-maker, he excelled, although the code relevant to 6th century Arabia does not always travel well either in time or in place, any more than Deuteronomical Law can or should be applied to all modern places that consider the Bible a holy book.

    My local BBC tv news programme recently ran a lunchtime story about a man who’d grabbed the arm of a 12 year old girl in a graveyard. She struggled free and ran off. The police were asking the public for any information on the man, described as ‘tall with a beard’. The photofit picture showed a man with a clear middle-eastern appearance wearing loose white robes.

    It struck me that there are many tall men with beards and that the lack of a fuller description was due to religious sensitivity.

    The early evening news repeated the same story. The police were still asking for help from the public in their search for the ‘tall man with a beard’. No photofit this time.

    Further reason to vote LEAVE is the Islamification of Europe.

    You want a good person to do bad things?
    That takes religion.

      these days, it’s the exclusivity of the Religion of Peace (TM)

      Soviet State Atheism was not a “religion”, but nobody in History has done so many bad things collectively as the USSR and its satellite or puppet régimes in the name of that atheism.

        Marxism is a theology and a death cult remember Mao and his little red book, Human beings some of them can be like lemmings when following a religion or some sort of replacement philosophy like Nazism also.

    Surprised and disappointed to see Rod Liddle use the moronic expression ‘libtard’ not once, but twice.

    • asherpat

      yea, very disappointing, shud have used it in the headline too

  • fredimeyer

    i was with you all the way, but you made a real mistake here:

    ”If there had been 15 separate incidents of, say, Christadelphian or Methodist gangs raping and sexually abusing children then I suspect that the BBC might have found this strange thing that they all had in common worthy of comment and possibly even investigation.”

    hellloooo. a MILLION young boys abused by catholic priests, and the bbc never mentioned that having anything to do with the church in which is it a sacrament

    • Mr B J Mann

      A million? Even worldwide and since the dawn of time?!

      But, then, how many have been enslaved, castrated, FMG’d, r_ped, stoned, beheaded, and otherwise killed, by the RoPers worldwide since the dawn of time?!

    • JabbaPapa

      idiot

      What d

    • sebastian2

      I think that when it comes to sexual abuse and possible religious links, all should be discussed and condemned regardless. What’s sauce for the goose should be sauce for the gander.

      As things are, mohammedism is given far too easy a ride.

  • Jacobi

    he Beeb (and other Telly channels) and the Guardian and now even the Police are suspect in what they say, what propaganda they put out, and that is basically for three reasons

    They contain a large proportion of Islamophiles (an irrational liking for, or support for Islam).

    They contain a large number of Westophobes (an irrational hatred of Western values ).

    They are scared the Muslims will blow them up if they are not nice to them, the Muslims
    that is. (a completely rational, if wimpish fear of Islam).

  • sebastian2

    If mohammedism was as peaceful and tolerant as we are required to believe and are being endlessly reminded of, we wouldn’t need to be required to believe and we wouldn’t need endless reminders.
