Finsbury Park: No excuses for violence, but we must be honest

Comparing this to Islamic jihad is dishonest

Any violence carried out against innocent people is to be condemned and the Finsbury Park attack is no exception. But we must be honest in its evaluation compared to the recent Islamic attacks, and the history of global jihad.

You can be sure that the Islamic community will exploit this incident as ‘evidence’ of widespread hatred and ‘Islamophobia’ in Britain, when in fact, despite all of the Islamic terrorist atrocities carried out in Britain and the rest of the world, there has been almost zero ‘Islamophobia’ until now, a few childish bacon-related pranks aside.

It will also use this incident to enhance the victim status of Muslims and to silence criticism of Islam.

There has already been significant differences in the way in which this incident has been reported – the perpetrator has not been given any of the usual indulgences afforded to Islamic terror suspects: “mental health problems”, the first line defence whenever there is an Islamic attack, has barely been raised except in the context of the standard “mental health assessment” given to all such persons; “lone wolf” has also not been thrown around as much as one would usually expect.

In fact, whilst Islamic terrorists are immediately distanced from their religion by the media, in this case the opposite is true: the individual is being tied as closely as possible to the larger group in order to portray them as racist or Islamophobic.

The truth is that there will always be those who are motivated to commit criminal acts, for any number of reasons, but in the present case, there is no overarching ideology that inspired this act of violence. There is no religious text that exhorted him to go out and murder Muslims, no example of a religious leader who committed such acts to follow, no ideological framework which supports it.

This is an individual who, for his own reasons, has chosen to commit a violent, criminal act. It is disgusting, but it is not in any way comparable to jihad, and should not stop the important discussion about the threat of Islam to the West.

UK: The start of civil war?

The start of a civil war?

UPDATE: As expected, some of the Muslim organisations in the UK are already hammering home the Islamophobia line. The kuffar-phobia that has existed at far greater levels since the 7th century rarely gets a mention, of course…

It was always inevitable that some unbalanced individual would eventually take it into his or her own hands to retaliate for the endless stream of Islamic-inspired violence in the UK.

It appears that time may have come:

More than ten pedestrians were hit by a white van that veered onto a pavement near a renowned north London mosque, in what is being described as a ‘terrorist attack’.

One man has been arrested but it is feared two more suspects may be on the run after the van ploughed into a crowd outside Finsbury Park Mosque, as they finished taraweeh, Ramadan evening prayers.

Eyewitnesses reported seeing bystanders wrestle the suspect to the floor and pin him down until officers arrived.

Others suggested that the congregation of victims were trying to save a man who had collapsed at a bus stop.

UK: Damning indictment of decades of misguided multiculturalism

Conquest, not assimilation…

Conquest, not assimilation…

A survey conducted by Channel 4 has revealed what we in the counter-jihadist movement have been saying for years – namely that Islam as an ideology refuses to integrate into Western society and is fundamentally incompatible with it:

A study carried out by ICM for Channel 4 revealed shocking findings which included:

  • Four in 10 Muslims believe a wife should ALWAYS obey her husband;
  • More than half UK Muslims believe homosexuality should be illegal
  • One in four British Muslims wants Islamic sharia law to replace British law
  • Only a third of Muslims would inform police if they knew someone who was getting involved with people who support terrorism in Syria
  • One in three Muslims refuse to completely condemn STONING to death in adultery cases
  • One in three Muslims refuse to condemn acts of violence against people who mock Mohammed

Trevor Phillips, who commissioned the infamous Runnymede Report in 1997, which codified and formalised the ludicrous ‘islamophobia’ excuse for Islamic terrorism in the West, appears to have finally come to his senses:

“For a long time, I too thought that Europe’s Muslims would become like previous waves of migrants, gradually abandoning their ancestral ways, wearing their religious and cultural baggage lightly, and gradually blending into Britain’s diverse identity landscape. I should have known better.”

And now it’s too late. Certainly too late for Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands. Possibly too late for Britain. A fifth column now resides amongst European natives, expanding rapidly due to astronomical birth rates, and supported by a solid foundation of zealous commitment to Islam and the destruction of the West.

Counter-jihadists have always maintained that Islam comes not to assimilate, but to conquer. Such views have, until very recently, been regarded by the mainstream as ‘racist’ and ‘Islamophobic’. In fact, they were just an expression of reality that many were to afraid to accept.

UK should get the hell out of the European Union

The European Union is the perfect example of a good idea taken to ridiculous lengths.

The Brits have always had a very strained relationship with Europe and its institutions. Its geographical position, as an island separated from continental Europe by the English Channel, has always meant that the Brits thought very differently to their French and German counterparts. Britain had always punched well above its weight on the international stage, creating a vast Victorian Empire that stretched round the globe. [Read more…]

UK: Jihadi pilots discussed terror plots on aircraft radios

Muslim pilots…? Not good…

Muslim pilots…? Not good…

They clearly thought the dumb infidels would be too stupid to work out what they were talking about.

The distress frequency (121.5 MHz) is unencrypted and constantly monitored by a number of agencies, and can be picked up by a $20 aircraft band radio, but the would-be jihadis thought that talking in simple coded Arabic would be enough to fool the kuffar.

Fortunately, great work by GCHQ in Cheltenham, UK, decrypted their plan, and thwarted a possible terrorist attack on four UK cities. [Read more…]

Fool Britannia: politicians debate whether to ban Donald Trump

But Trump is more 'dangerous'…

But Trump is more ‘dangerous’…

It’s only one side of politics that needs its ‘safe spaces’ and that is the Left.

The Left’s worldview is a teetering house of cards, built on denial, delusion, pathological hatred and magical thinking.

It cannot survive any opinions that challenge it, and anyone daring to express such opinions must therefore be silenced, lest the slightest movement of air destroys it.

This is why we have had to suffer the highly unedifying spectacle of a ‘debate’ in the UK Parliament about whether Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump should be banned from entering the UK. [Read more…]

UK: Cameron slams Muslim Brotherhood

Signs of resistance?

Signs of resistance?

Signs of a growing acknowledgement the jihad threat to Dhimmi Britain, perhaps?

“Aspects of the Muslim Brotherhood’s ideology and activities … run counter to British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, equality and the mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs,” Prime Minister David Cameron said in a statement. Cameron further states that “association with, or influence by the Muslim Brotherhood should be considered as a possible indicator of extremism.

Not sure how that last statement squares with Cameron’s contradictory position that the Muslim faith is a Religion of Peace™…

But at least it’s a start.

Tiny minority myth busted – AGAIN!

myths_busted

Busted. Again.

It doesn’t matter how many times this myth is blown to smithereens, the Leftards still wheel it out to defend their dangerous fantasy that Islam is a Religion of Peace™…

1 in 5 British Muslims sympathize with jihadists

One in five British Muslims sympathize with British citizens who flee the UK to join Islamic State (ISIS), a poll revealed Sunday – and that number rises to one in four among British Muslims ages 18-34.

The Survation poll, published by the Sun, polled 1,003 British citizens about ISIS and their views on the UK’s approach to terrorism.

38% of respondents agreed that Muslims “should not have to condemn” terror attacks carried out by ISIS; 51% believe that it is the Muslim community’s responsibility to condemn attacks.

The overwhelming majority of respondents, some 71%, stated that their Muslim and British identities were “equally important” to them, versus 17% who said their Muslim identity is more important and 6% who say their British identity is more important.

Some 38% of British Muslims polled said that “Western foreign policy” is “the single biggest factor” in ISIS attacks, versus 25% who blame ISIS’s leaders for “exploiting young people” and 6% who blame “the poverty and discrimination against Muslims in Western countries.” 17% said they did not know and 14% chose another factor.

61% of respondents believed that British Muslims are “doing enough” to integrate into mainstream society, versus 22% who say they are not doing enough and 3% who believe they are too integrated.

At least 500 UK citizens have joined ISIS since the Syrian civil war began in 2011, and a senior police officer revealed to the Guardian in October that about five radicalized Muslims leave the UK for Syria every week. (source)

Anyone who can look at these figures and not say ‘Houston, we have a problem’ must be thoroughly deluded.

UK: Muslim boy pleads guilty to inciting Aussie terror

Inciting violence for Allah

Inciting violence for Allah

If you asked a normal, well-adjusted teenager to go and cut off the head of a complete stranger with a sharp knife, I would guess that teenager would (a) not do it; and (b) report you to his parents, and the police.

But where the teenager in question is a Muslim who has been taught since birth that the Qur’an requires him to ‘strike the necks’ of the infidels, and that you would be carrying out the will of Allah, and that if you were killed in the attempt you would gain entry to paradise with 72 virgins waiting for you, then such a request may yield results.
