Muslim colonisation

Reader comment on item: The Enemy Has a Name

Submitted by Alan Stoddart (United Kingdom), Jun 20, 2008 at 08:46

A great movement, called Islamism, arose among the Europeans. Its aim was to assert the dominance of Islam within Western Democracies and to become the dominant political force within those countries; the movement was strongly represented in the UK.

One of the many methods employed was the use of mosques and their preachers as instruments for spreading the idea of an Islamic caliphate throughout Europe. This proceeding was carried out as follows:

Islamist preachers from Saudi Arabia and Pakistan were sent to Europe and gradually but steadily pushed forward the interests of the muslim people before those of the national interest. The mosques, madrassas and the preachers became instruments of colonisation and the destruction of secular, modern, liberal states using the perversion of religious belief for political ends.

Parralel to this was a campaign of violence to 'persuade' weak politicians of the need to co-operate and furhter advance Muslim interests and power. The violence was minimal but highly effective with many Liberal commentators and Establishment figures rushing to become apologists for the bombers and attempting to deal with the Muslim community's apparent 'grievances' that led to such outbreaks of violence.

To outward appearances it seemed as if only radical groups of Muslims championed this movement, while the great majority disapproved of it, or even repudiated it. But an investigation of the situation showed that those outward appearances were purposely misleading. These outward appearances emerged from a mist of theories which had been produced for reasons of expediency, if not for purposes of downright deception.

For that part of Islam which was styled Moderate did not disown the extremists as if they were not members of their creed but rather as brother Muslims who publicly profess their faith in an unpractical way, so as to create a danger to moderate Muslims and Islam itself, i.e. one in which Muslims were the real victims of the Terror.
