Right on, Maura!!! Couldn't have said it better myself.

What beats me is that despite the most compelling evidence that Blair and Brown are responsible for the multicultural mess in which we are now deeply mired, Brown is now at the helm in the UK, while Blair continues his role by meddling in the Middle East, and has the audacity to set his sights on the presidency of the European Union.

One would be extremely hard-pressed to find two more traitorous "leaders" than this pair, given their recipe for disaster, though Jacqui Smith seems to be toeing the same party line, not to mention that "silly old goat" Rowan Williams.

Considering the unprecedented stupidity of suddenly foisting millions of "strangers with strange ideas from strange lands" onto an unprepared, indigenous population, it should have been left to the British population to decide for themselves in a nationwide referendum, not to a minority of politicians with self-centered, unprecedented, Pollyana agendas. My condemnation is not hindsight; it is plain common sense, and I am 100% certain that the British public would have responded with a resounding "NO."

Many must be familiar with Enoch Powell's 1956 speech on uncontrolled immigration, when he foretold of "rivers of blood." That must now be seen as a distinct possibility. But even before that, in 1899, the British were warned of the dangers of Islam by none other than Winston Churchill, who was just 24 at the time.

How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.…A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities ... but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith.

Let me not mince words. The actions of Blair and Brown, two traitors, can only be described as "treason." T Obviously, Smith and Williams fall into that same category!
