Muslim appeasement

Reader comment on item: Enforce Islamic Law in Canada?

Submitted by Mary (United Kingdom), Oct 2, 2005 at 07:04

A few centuries ago, an aggressive, unbending religion attempted to usurp power in England through terrorism and force. The first terrorist who appeared on our soil was called Guy Fawkes, a Catholic of Italian extraction who tried to blow up the House of Commons. These attempts were crushed mercilessly and ruthlessly by "Good Queen Bess" (Elizabeth 1) a woman with more b***** than the average man. In those days, Catholicism was far more powerful than its modern day benign version today and was responsible for the most fearsome regime of all - the Inquisition. It was a torture machine of extreme repressiveness which is uncannily similar to present day Islam. If it hadn't been for the Queen's actions, England might have gone through the dark age that Spain went through. Admittedly, they had to expel the Islamists to get their country back.

For the first time since then in our history, we have another even more virulent and self aggrandising religion than Catholicism trying every which way to overthrow our way of life. Unfortunately, we don't have anyone of the calibre of Queen Bess to stand up to it.
