However, I have recently heard, second hand, that some of my recent posts about Islam have caused a stir. Apparently they convinced a few people that my politics are somewhat to the right of Genghis Khan. In particular, these posts have taken some criticism from ordinary decent English and American people who are so busy being inclusive and undiscriminating that they are drawing vipers into the nest:
Draw Mohammed Day 2012
Abrogation in the Qu'ran and
Halal and kosher meat - the controversy
For the record I would have put myself as centre-left, at least until the 'compliant quisling' Nick Clegg went into alliance with the Conservative Party to enable the current UK government to be so dysfunctional. (More about quislings tomorrow.) At present I am sure that there is no political party representing my views in this country. As it happens, nearly all of them seem to bend over backwards to appease Islam, with the exception of the right wing brigade who have no policies except the one of being against Islam. No way do they get my vote.
My criticism of Islam has no racist foundation, but I criticise it because it portrays itself as harmless while quietly undermining the rule of law in a country that already has perfectly good laws. I will not tolerate the teachings and practices of this barbaric religion of Islam any more than I would tolerate the same actions from any other person.
I also criticise it because of the appalling 'morals' that it represents. You can close your eyes and pretend that 10,000 girls are not taken out of UK every year for a 'holiday' in a country where their genitals can be cut in a dangerous, inhumane, barbaric ritual. You might be able to pretend not to be disgusted, but I can't. I also find it amazing that people are prosecuted for anti-Islamic remarks on Twitter in this 'civilised' country and yet there has not been one single prosecution for female genital mutilation, which is a criminal offence as well as a morally outrageous infringement of human rights. These things can't possibly go completely unnoticed by health professionals (although clearly they find themselves in a difficult position).
What's more, we know that we can't trust Islam. They have two ways of lying to us infidels within their own moral system. I wrote about 'Taqiyyah - lying for Islam' last year. I will write about the other one, 'kitman' on Tuesday.
If you are not frightened of this and not utterly disgusted by what is going on in the name of Allah in your own supposedly 'Christian country' then you are really not concentrating! How can anyone wish peace and blessings upon him and his simply disgusting set of morals!
You don't have to be right wing or Christian to want to stamp out barbarism and inhumanity. You just have to be a decent person who cares about truth and justice. You have to stand up and point out the simple truth of the dangers precisely because discrimination is not an acceptable practise. I wouldn't accept these actions from my children. If my neighbours carried them out I would go to the police, whatever their ethnic or religious background. My lack of discrimination extends to being willing to stand up for the rights of the victims of Islam, whether or not they are Islamic themselves.
Let's be completely clear . . .
I do not criticise individual Muslims because they happen to follow Islam. That is their right and as long as they live within the law I have no quarrel with them. I do not wish them to go to another country to practise their religion. However, I do outright and unreservedly criticise individual Muslims who also happen to be criminals under the law of this country, whether or not that criminal activity is 'required' by their faith. I feel the same way about other Muslims who harbour those criminals too.
I doubt that any accusations of political leanings will ever change my view on that topic. Yes I am Islamophobic (as in literally 'frightened of creeping Islam')! But I also want one law for all.
Islamophobia needs to be much more widespread in my opinion!
