Reader comment on item: A Million Moderate Muslims on the March
in response to reader comment: How does the EU reconcile Western and Sharia law?

The Busybodies I certainly, and probably Dr Pipes, meant, were the ignorant Islamophile neo Marxist Leftwing pseudo intellectuals in Western Academia that have plagued academics like myself for years and drove us out of Academia, even rigging our exam results to do so! One admitted to me years ago' You Guys will never be allowed to do a PhD due to your views!'

I often read PhD theses to gauge the political 'temperature' in Academia. One I read was nothing less than a heavily biased political tract celebrating the Women's Movement protesting against nukes, at the American Airbase at Greenham Commom during the 80s and 90s. In all my years one has never read such a dreadfully dull, incredibly ignorant, ungrammatical, cliched 'thesis' full of anti American-Western bias in all my years. A Doctoral thesis is supposed to be an original unbiased study, not a political Marxist diatribe celebrating a political class' undemocratic views.

A refugee Marxist Leninst Professor, winner of academic prizes the world over, defected to the USA. She went to UCLA and was failed because she wrote a dissertation her tutor disliked, deconstructing Marxism. More than one academic colleague of mine, including a well known, highly gifted philosopher were hounded out of Oxbridge because they refused to write things they knew were not true. These people were not even necessarily right of centre like myself.

My own dissertation on Italica, a Roman town in Spain was marked down on the basis that I refused to state that Rome was 'Multicultural'. Rome was a mono-culture of diverse peoples assimilating to a standard of Romanitas or Romaness. If Rome had been 'Multicultural' she would have perished as Europe is now doing! Instead she survived over a thousand years by insisting those she subdued and ruled assimilate. Only one other imperial power has had as much success over the last thousand years by insisting upon assimilation: Islam!

As for my own academic abilities, if I was not good enough in the eyes of the Leftwing elite, why is is that several well known academics have stated their admiration for my work in private over the last few years and journals taken my articles? My grades at postgrad level were well into the 70-80% region. Yet simply because I refused the politically correct tripe being served up I was marked down 'to keep you out of academia'. I am not alone as one can see.

In a way these Marxist academics did me a great favour, leaving me free to do what one now does in attacking them for the spiteful and vindictive way, they utilise extremist Islam to destroy western civilisation.

In the 80s it was the coal miners and unions. Before that it was the general working class. Then it was gays and blacks. Now it is Islam and its 'victimhood' they ustilise for their Marxist Internationale revolution. There will not be another chance as the way things are going, Europe will be Islamic and all the above 'Useful Idiots' either in exile, dead, or living as good Moslems. That is ours and their future unless we act.

There are moderate Moslems out there, and Dr Pipes is quite correct in his estimation that we must make it easier for them to rebel against the cloying primitive violence and intolerance. We need to engage these and encourage an Islamic 'Age of Reason'. They nearly made it before but the extremists and bigots got there first. Sufism arose out of this temporary pause. Christianity was once a pretty violent intolerant religion, and look at it now!.
