Reader comment on item: British Muslims – A Global Threat
in response to reader comment: APATHY IN BRITAIN

Submitted by Terry (European Union), Mar 1, 2007 at 18:02

I fail to see your comparison between the freemasons and Wahabism. Having said that, not being a freemason, there may be things I am unaware of. The thread is about the global threat of Islamism, and British apathy. It is not so much apathy, as that we are so girdled about and hedged in with laws on racialism in all it's forms, that one hardly dares speak out for fear of arrest oneself. Fear of being labelled anti this, anti that, xenophobic, Islamophobic etc etc.

The march of Islam in Britain seems to be unstoppable, save by the very violent means the extremists of Islam themselves use. The very government seems to be hell bent on turning this country into a Caliphate. That of course is what the exremists (indeed all Muslims) are intent on. In a still recent TV documentary, their 'clerics' said as much. Until we take over was the expression used. Despite all this, and despite the almost daily arrests for terrorist offences, in spite of a so called preacher recently losing his appeal against extradition, and appealing again.

The latest government ploy is to propose laws to allow a greater percentage of Muslims in the work place. Why not go the whole hog, (while the expression can be allowed) why not outlaw any one other than a Muslim to work at all? Incidentally, if the man in question abhors British/Western society so much, why is he fighting so hard to stay here albeit in Jail (at tax payers expense of course) Surely the just and wonderful society of Jordan should be far more acceptable to him. He fears torture. Would a Muslim society do that. He obviously knows his own kind best.

All this can eventually only lead to a backlash. Only this so called government can fail to see it. All the so called main political parties are the same. They shy away from the problem, it is too much of a political hot potato. People vote BNP. Instead of asking themselves why, the government pass more laws. They can't actually outlaw the BNP yet but they freeze their bank accounts, Union members cannot be BNP members, and so on. About 6 months ago, a teacher was sacked for being a member of the BNP. Yet Muslim teachers are encouraged, and even legislated for. This is not democracy. Please do not misunderstand, I am not a member of the BNP. but I can understand why they flourish, when healthy debate is stifled, and suppressed.

In conclusion I will say that the deafening silence from the so called moderate Muslims on acts of terror, not only in Britain but all over the world speaks volumes in itself. What in fact is the defintion of a moderate Muslim? There is an old saying, more true today than ever before. The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is that good people do nothing.
