In defence of the freedom-loving patriot and activist John Banks, facing persecution at the hands of the State

       John Banks

The trial of John Banks, freedom-lover, patriot and activist, is due to take place on 04 July 2018 at Doncaster. It concerns an ASBO – an anti-social behaviour order – for blasphemy. John has asked for his legal advice to be shared as widely as possible so that people can understand the corrupt way in which our laws are being used against us.

John has also produced a YouTube video concerning the matter.

The legal advice below is rather a long document but it does give an insight into the legal complexities surrounding even such minor enforcement procedures such as an ASBO. If you are able to attend the trial in person on 04 July then please turn up to support John and to support freedom. I will certainly be there myself.

This is my legal advice for you at this time.

Apologies for the messiness of this. I felt I just needed to send it to you as is so it helps you describe your situation to others.

I cover answering your questions about what you are permitted to do and I describe what possible outcomes I envisage from your own personal perspective as well as from our collective perspective.

If the police construe the ASBO as a gagging order then I suggest we contest that interpretation.
Of course they don’t want you talking to voters about what a sham your ASBO is..
It makes them look very corrupt.
They could mitigate the problem by flouting fewer laws instead of demanding you cover for them.

Where I use the term “they” I am normally referring to the judges and prosecuters collectively.
From what I have witnessed at your interim kangaroo hearing the judge appeared to be the judge, prosecuter and principle plaintiff too.
You have caused that judge no end of dismay and alarm by being criticial of Islam and being critical of the police and courts.

Only by imposing a death sentence on you can they adequately balance out the visible trauma that that unfortunate old lunatic imagines he has suffered at your hands.

Our overall strategy for defence can be summed up in one word….
Attack!
That’s usually the best strategy when dealing with cowards.

The prognosis initially looked grim.
It seemed certain this ASBO was merely a formality and then you would get sent down for some ridiculous reason which we all know to be perfectly legal even by their own elastic and inconsistently applied laws.

Now I have had time to look at more of the paperwork and evidence, I can see a pattern of clumsiness in the preparation of the evidence and even in the conduct of the Judge at the interim hearing that invites legal challenges.

It is critical we pay as much attention to how we fight this case in the court of public opinion and otherwise outside of the jurisdiction of the court.
We are little more than spectaters in the court whereas we have a lot more power outside the court.
I may not be allowed to point out all the perjury and mis use of legal powers in the court itself and we may instead have to simply hand them written evidence on the day where the judge will most likely pretend not to read it.

If he stops and reads anything then that might be a bad sign.
I expect the judge to be hand picked for your destruction.
It would not surprise me at all if the judge on the day is a muslim himself.

We still have room for maneuvre even in that situation with plenty left to play for (even during the hearing).

With each and every point of contention we must avoid making the same mistake as them and only considering one outcome.
We must have considered every single possible turn of events and be sure we know how to capitalise on it and punish them in some way.

For this reason my prepared scripts are numerous and it is not clear which ones I will need to use until we see which way they jump.

We can reduce the likelihood of you being prosecuted further even without a discharge or variation being ordered by the court.
Even if the ASBO is not discharged. Even if no variation is ordered on the prohibitions.
If the court can be forced to give straightforward answers of “yes” or “no” when asked whether particualr activities are prohibited by the ASBO then we can gain a guarantee of certain rights for you that though you have them in law already, you demonstrably don’t have them in practice.

We can tip their hand by reminding them of relavant legislation which they have been previously flouting. Forcing them to concede that you have certain rights in law.

So you can leave the court freer than you entered it while appearing (superficially) to lose your appeal against this ASBO.

Strategic gains we can expect from fighting the case
From a strategic perspective we can reduce the capacity of the CPS to bring such cases by forcing them to take more care in the preparation of cases.
This would reduce the number of cases they can prepare with the same resources.

We can also reduce their capacity to prosecute by forcing the court to hear the defence instead of ruling everything as inadmissable.

If cases take ten times as much court time when skillfully contested then that means there will be only a tenth of the number of cases going forward unless they throw more resources at this.

The fewer the cases we have to fight the more of our resources we can devote to each case.
The more punishing each case can become for them.

Strategic gains from our other activities.

We probably won’t manage to get the ASBO discharged or even get a variation ordered on it but they might get such a surprise from the pounding we give them in terms of criticism and protests that they back away and give up on you.

This should not be seen a massive source of hope for you. But certainly they are more wary of bothering people who have a support group that they know full well is going to use their actions as a stick to beat them with.

If not that then at least you are drawing their fire and squandering their resources while a lot more of us are politically rushing them from other directions at the same time.

I am saying this in the hope of reminding you that however much of an unfair beatdown this injustice might seem like – they are still not having it all their own way and your sacrifice is a necessary and helpful part of the struggle.

If we lose the case badly then as a consolation prize I offer you my attempt at flipping one or two Labour seats. We will pick one or two narrow Labour majorities where we have supporters and then leaflet poor areas informing voters about what the court has done and asking them to stop voting Labour or Conservative. We move them to UKIP or For Britain or Britain First.
Whoever is standing against the establishment parties in that area.

We haven’t studied the numbers yet so there is no concrete plan.
We can use what happened to you to generally change opinions but also to target two constituencies in particular and try to flip those seats in the commons. We leaflet using legal protection afforded to political parties informing voters that the court flouted the law in your case and that the police perjured themselves repeatedly while the judge knowingly ignored it.

We will beg people to stop voting Labour and start voting UKIP or For Britain.
We will target poor estates and synchronise different leafleting to make it hard for the other side to react effectively..

They are alreeady so busy with us that they have decided to not bother investigating stuff like burglary, assault and rape so I would say they are already stretched.

Advice for conduct while the ASBO is in place

Encouraging or disseminating politically contraversial material of any type to myself and others

As I have already stated, you are protected in law when it comes to any activity where it is related to the reporting of legal cases.
RRHA2006 excludes it being used in section 29K.

It is possible that they will try to arrest you for it anyway.
You should first present the arresting officer with a printed copy of that paragraph from the act.
He will probably ignore it so then you just phone me from the police station.

I don’t know the procedure yet but just political activism using their illegality as propaganda might well get you released.

My gut feeling is they will not arrest you for flouting your ASBO until after the full hearing so that they can say you have had ample opportunity to contest the ASBO in court.

Otherwise, how come you aren’t already in prison?
Every word I hear you say is a breach of that ASBO in their feverish imaginations.

Flying your flag
I have no doubt that the intention when drafting this ASBO was that you merely possessing an England flag or Union Jack would be enough to arrest you.

But when pressed on this point they have refused to confirm or deny this.
The judge is compelled to instruct the prosecuter to answer our questions until you the defendent understand the conditions.

By failing to do that the judge has given you legal grounds to contest them arresting you over the flag.

In addition I think they will realise at some point soon that if they do that we will use that as propaganda to slap them around the heads with so they’ll retreat on this in my estimation.

We have ticked all the boxes covering you for flying a flag.
I have even asked a senior member of the Conservative party about that prohibition and he insists it would not apply to England flags or Union Jacks but that is just his assumption.

They have been given every opportunity to clarify this matter and have refused..

I’m not sure how to handle them arresting you for this.

I initially considered the idea of a phone blitz as a contingency plan for this situation.
That would comprise a series of expressions of disappointment from various members of the public.
If everyone who was unhappy with them rang them to say so they’d be extremely busy people.
I dismissed the idea because the police is an important service that everybody needs.
Not that they actually do any real police work even with their phones working but let’s not give them extra excuses for being so useless.

They would have tried to use MTA2003 to prosecute us for that and for once we might actually be guilty so there’s another reason not to do that.

Our main battlefield for fighting this issue is on social media and on the door step.

My advice: Keep flying your flag.
They have ignore it thus far.
They refuse to be drawn on the matter.
Nobody is going to vote for politicians who preside over us being arrested for flying England flags.

I can remember two instances where this issue has been something that has worked in our favour in the past. Videos of people being arrested for holding England flags get a lot of shares and cause much outrage among the citizenry.
If these dumbasses want to try for third time lucky then we should invite them to bring it on.

If you must get arrested then please let it be for this.

Other
It would be a good idea for us to think about what other activities need to be considered.
I feel a lot of your books might be seized by them and used as evidence of you breaching your ASBO.

Even best selling books by perfectly respectable people could get you imprisoned.
My advice: Don’t give up your books.
If you owning those books is causing alarm to someone or making them feel harrassed or if the court feels it is an activity that wouold lead to you doing something that would cause alarm, distress , blah blah then you can be locked up in their minds.

If they arrest you for that it is ammunition against them.

There are other things too.

Prediction of outcome

Composition of the trial
This is merely my best guess at what is going to happen with no experience in this area of law.

The trial is scheduled for a full day which means our start time is going to be early in the morning.
The judge and the prosecuter are only really planning on spending about one and a half hours on this and imagine they are going to have an early dart while getting paid for a full day.

They get most of a day off at the cost of you getting a fair hearing.

There’s a very good chance things aren’t going to turn out the way they are expecting and I think we will finish sometime mid afternoon but it can be very short or very long depending on how they react.
It could be over in 15 minutes (for good or bad reasons).

We can’t present a long monologue.
If we did that they would simply cut me short and your defence would never be heard.

Our case is a great number of small components that will be slid into opportunities created by the prosecution and we will rely entirely on their own evidence to argue the injustice of this.
We aim to prove their numerous perjuries.
We aim to point out the cynical ambiguity of the prohibitions and the consistent refusal to clarify them.

We aim to reduce their estimation of the gains they can expect to achieve.
This might help our chances of the judge discharging it.

Without wishing to denegrate your contribution to the movement we can find another speaker in 5 seconds flat so even they must realise that the cost of imprisoning you has zero direct impact on us as a movement.
We are only reacting so vigorously because we are angry about the injustice and we don’t want to wait until it is our turn.

This is principally seen by them as being useful in frightening the rest of us off.
I need to convince them that it is not having any such effect on us.
That there is a long queue of us behind you who are also happy to take a turn in prison.

What to do if arrested during this time.
Remain calm.
Show relavant law and legal guidance pertaining to why they shouldn’t be arresting you.
Try to prepare your freinds and family so they stay put and witness everything and don’t start agreeing with the police in an effort to curry favour and seem reasonable.
Anyone who is unreliable should walk away when trouble starts.
They will bury you even deeper in trouble if they start accidentally motivating the police with confidence building such as that.
Some help is worse than no help whatsoever.
The police should be reminded of how new and unusual their actions and views are.
Nobody must be reassuring them by pretending like this is the most normal thing in the world.
Like as if it seems totally reasonable to arrest you for possession of a flag or for encouraging or permitting someone else to possess a flag.

It is not normal.
It is not OK.

How I need you to act in court
I need you to look perfectly calm and at ease the whole time.
There is a chance that it is going to be discharged.
Even if that doesn’t happen it might not ever be enforced.

If you compare the mild punishment you face in short term imprisonment to the sort of fate they could face in a few years then you are a lot safer being the defendant than the prosecutor or judge.
I would not want to swap places with them if I was you given the way the political tide is moving.
At least one third of the population want these people publicly executed for what they are doing.
If that percentage keeps rising the way it has been doing then the dam is certainly going to burst at some point in the next few years.
The polling numbers (even looking at the latest stats issued by Hope not Hate) prove this rising tide of anger is certanly a reality.
Hope not Hate claim we are 40% of the population now (based on a survey conducted by YouGov). I would say 35%.
Another survey late last year had us at 47%.

Everyone agrees we were a tiny minority a few short years ago.
Everyone agrees we are still on the rise even now with the police and courts pulling out all the stops. The few of us who are immune to career sabotage or some other penalty are still enough to form huge crowds in the many protests that the media are now hiding from the public.

Another year like the last year and they are going to start realising what is coming their way.
Perhaps that thought will help put this into a better perspective for you.
There is no point in making threats towards them at this point.
We first need reality to dawn on them.
Prematurely threatening them with specific criminal charges will result in laughter from them at this point in time.

Imagine you are sat on a train watching the scenery go by.
Maintain that attitude the whole time no matter what anyone says.

If we get this discharged then part of the reason will be that it doesn’t appear to be having the intended effect. They would insist on this staying in place no matter how well we argued against it if they felt it would deliver a strategic advantage to them.

I will be leaving it until late on before pointing out that we have a long line of volunteers behind you all happy to take a turn in prison.
This claim will seem more plausible if you and I both seem perfectly laid back about the whole thing. Even where he threatens me with contempt of court.
We show no big reaction to it..

This will move the judge’s assessed value of this a bit.

Taking a couple of Labour constituencies via leafleting
I have come up with a way of leafleting the public that is protected by law so they just can’t do a thing about it and I’ll give them a copy of what we will be handing out rather than saying stuff about the judge behind his back.
We need to be able to give accurate projections of distribution sizes as well as current polling figures for the political constitutes
We don’t simply pick your home area.
Instead we pick places where the Labour majority is a bit thin and thus we have a realistic chance of flipping a seat.

I need to be polite but still make a clear threat.
“If you do this, we do that”.
We need to produce and distribute enough leaflets for us to reach and convert enough Labour voters and none voters.
This means our richest pickings are poor council estates.
Choosing our demographic with care reduces how many leaflets we need to do.

Your schedule of behaviour.
There are a great number of things mentioned in your schedule of behaviour which are perfectly legal activities where the police have no business being interest.

On top of that they can be proven to be lying time and time again in a futile attempt at making your behaviour sound illegal.

Your schedule is so thickly laiden with perjury that I think I may have mistaken laziness for stupidity when I first started looking at it.
Whatever the reason for all the blatant lying, it helps us more than than it helps them if we are allowed to speak.
Even the inference of Alarm and distress being caused puts them on the spot if forced to explain how.
Not as juicy a lie as my two favourite humdingers in there but still it paints a dark picture of the prosecution.

It is beyond reasonable doubt that it is deliberately misleading the court relying on nobody paying attention to the evidence which accompanies it.
It is just too strong a pattern for it to occur by chance.

This breaks down into 8 defence components that vary in length between short and easy to explain in less than one minute to more complex and lengthy accusations lasting several minutes.

In each instance we must prepublish our accusation and open by pointing this out to them.
My rationale is that on the one hand they have no interest in hearing what we have to say to them in your defence.
but on the other hand they will be interested in knowing what we have been saying to others about them.

We have to juggle the words around so that instead of each point being a defence of you it is instead an attack on them.
Where they are the topic of conversation they are interested.
Where you are the topic of conversation they are not going to listen even if they have to pretend to listen.

The only way to peak their interest in what we say is by saying it to third parties with no apparent care as to whether they know what we have to say.

Clarification of prohibitions
We need to request an example of the application of each and every prohibition.
Prior to that we need to present them with a breakdown untangled from their amalgamated prohibitions.

I have not become familliar with the procedure so I know by simple guesswork what the different parts of the trial will be but not what the order will be.
It would be better if clarification of the prohibitions was dealt with before we looked at anything else but I think they might not cover it at the start.
Whenever they do cover it I will again remind them of the ambiguity of it and our desire to question the relevance or justification for each prohibition.
This will result in many variations simply because the prohibitions make no logical sense or else the prosecution can’t come up with an example of application.
.

Chances of a subsequent custodial sentence
Obviously if the ASBO is not discharged then your percentage likelihood of imprisonment goes up from my current estimate of 10% to 40%
…to a more pessimistic 12.5% to 50% chance.

Chances of other outcomes
This is very difficult to predict.
I must admit I have very little relevant experience with this area of law and have not ploughed through enough case law to be able to seize on every opportunity.

Prepare for a stint in prison but don’t assume it is a certainty..
Maybe somewhere between 10% and 40% chance.
I’m sure it is 100% chance in the minds of the police and the judge and this is merely a formality in their estimation.
I reckon it would have been 100% chance of getting sent down if you had hired a regular lawyer.

The lesson we should learn here is that we’re better off getting our own people trained up as paralegals now.
This allows us to fight a hundred times as many battles as crowd funding professionals would have allowed.

Definitely don’t write off our chances at this point.
They have complete control over so much but still stupidity is a bad weakness to have and they have it lot of it.

There is a small chance that the prosecution will withdraw the ASBO or apply for it to be discharged (I am not sure exactly what the procedure is) prior to the full hearing due to us reacting strongly and publicise all their perjury and other flouting of the law.

We need to seize on this case and use it to inflict more harm on them than they can potentially inflict on us. As a movement we lose a speaker and we have more than we need so it is a zero cost to us.
Sorry for not sounding very appreciative of your immense efforts but we are heaving with people now and they are joining a lot faster than they are getting arrested.

On a personal level it makes others very angry to see you punished.
Also, we know if we let this slide without a push back then we are next.
So I for one am going to do everything in my power to turn your case into a bad decision on their part and I’m sure many others will feel the same way too.
It will help us recruit more people.

We are already recruiting new people into the anti Islamic moverment at a far higher rate than they dissuading people.
We are winning the war of atrition and they are pulling out almost all the stops at this point.

Putting us in prison for 15 years for watching videos is a bluff.
Do the maths and it is obvious that they have very little prison capacity compared to how many of us would openly flout such an arrogant and tyrannical move by that stupid bitch we have as a home secretary.

Let’s say 20% chance they back off prior to the hearing.
Might be 10% or 30%.
I don’t know.

There is a chance of it being discharged during your hearing.
It’s not likely but not impossible either considering the number of instances of perjury I can point to and the number of exemptions that have been ignored thus far in your dealings with the police and courts.

So that leaves us with a 40% to 80% chance of the ASBO standing.
Even in that scenario it might be with a variation ordered on it.
Any clarification will effectively reduce the scope of the order.

It is then not certain if they will act on it or if they will pull their horns in.

I am fairly sure they didn’t envisage the trouble they are now facing when they were drafting this clumsy nonsense they present as evidence so they might change their minds when aware they have wrongly predicted costs and benefits.

I’m not a lawyer myself but I can appreciate that this case has ramifications for freedom above and beyond a typical open and shut case of this type. Please help John Banks and the cause of freedom in whatever way you can, and turn up in Doncaster on 04 July 2018 to demonstrate your support.

The Roots of Islamic Anti-Semitism – and why we must fight to eliminate it from our country

Image result for jews

This is reprinted from an article by Robert Spencer in Jihad Watch – and I am reproducing it here in its entirety because Anti-Semitism in Europe has to be stopped if we are not to see another Holocaust at the hands of barbaric Muslims following the commands of the Qur’an – specifically concerning our Jewish friends, who judging by their observable behaviour, have every intention of living harmoniously with the rest of humanity – which is more than can be said for most Muslims.

Anti-Semitism in Europe is at levels not seen since the heyday of Nazi Germany, and is growing more savage by the moment. In February 2018, i24 News reported that “two French Jewish brothers were briefly abducted and abused by a group of men in a Paris suburb in an incident that ended with the brothers being beaten and attacked with a wood saw.” This is the new Europe, the same as the old Europe, because of Muslim immigration: the attackers were “a group of men described as having a Middle Eastern appearance.”

A group of men having a Middle Eastern appearance would have every reason, by their own lights, to abduct, beat, and attempt to mutilate two random Jews. The Qur’an depicts the Jews as inveterately evil and bent on destroying the well-being of the Muslims. They are the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82); as fabricating things and falsely ascribing them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181); claiming that Allah’s power is limited (5:64); loving to listen to lies (5:41); disobeying Allah and never observing his commands (5:13); disputing and quarreling (2:247); hiding the truth and misleading people (3:78); staging rebellion against the prophets and rejecting their guidance (2:55); being hypocritical (2:14, 2:44); giving preference to their own interests over the teachings of Muhammad (2:87); wishing evil for people and trying to mislead them (2:109); feeling pain when others are happy or fortunate (3:120); being arrogant about their being Allah’s beloved people (5:18); devouring people’s wealth by subterfuge (4:161); slandering the true religion and being cursed by Allah (4:46); killing the prophets (2:61); being merciless and heartless (2:74); never keeping their promises or fulfilling their words (2:100); being unrestrained in committing sins (5:79); being cowardly (59:13-14); being miserly (4:53); being transformed into apes and pigs for breaking the Sabbath (2:63-65; 5:59-60; 7:166); and more.

The classic Qur’anic commentators not do not mitigate the Qur’an’s words against Jews, but only add fuel to the fire. Ibn Kathir explained Qur’an 2:61 (“They were covered with humiliation and misery; they drew on themselves the wrath of Allah”) this way: “This Ayah [verse] indicates that the Children of Israel were plagued with humiliation, and that this will continue, meaning that it will never cease. They will continue to suffer humiliation at the hands of all who interact with them, along with the disgrace that they feel inwardly.” Another Middle Ages commentator of lingering influence, Abdallah Ibn Umar al-Baidawi, explains the same verse this way: “The Jews are mostly humiliated and wretched either of their own accord, or out of coercion of the fear of having their jizya [punitive tax] doubled.”

Ibn Kathir notes Islamic traditions that predict that at the end of the world, “the Jews will support the Dajjal (False Messiah), and the Muslims, along with ‘Isa [Jesus], son of Mary, will kill the Jews.” The idea in Islam that the end times will be marked by Muslims killing Jews comes from the prophet Muhammad himself, who said, “The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. ‘O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.’” This is, not unexpectedly, a favorite motif among contemporary jihadists.

Not just contemporary jihadists, but modern-day mainstream Islamic authorities take these passages seriously. The former Grand Sheikh of Al-Azhar, Muhammad Sayyid Tantawi, who was the most respected cleric in the world among Sunni Muslims, called Jews “the enemies of Allah, descendants of apes and pigs.” The late Saudi sheikh Abd al-Rahman al-Sudayyis, imam of the principal mosque in the holiest city in Islam, Mecca, said in a sermon that Jews are “the scum of the human race, the rats of the world, the violators of pacts and agreements, the murderers of the prophets, and the offspring of apes and pigs.”

Another Saudi sheikh, Ba’d bin Abdallah al-Ajameh al-Ghamidi, made the connection explicit: “The current behavior of the brothers of apes and pigs, their treachery, violation of agreements, and defiling of holy places … is connected with the deeds of their forefathers during the early period of Islam–which proves the great similarity between all the Jews living today and the Jews who lived at the dawn of Islam.”

All this shows that leading Muslim authorities approach the Qur’an not as a document rooted in history, but as a blueprint for understanding the world today. Indeed, it is the primary blueprint for such understanding, and yet the one most persistently ignored by authorities. That’s why those authorities keep misunderstanding the rising problem of Islamic anti-Semitism, and are woefully ill-equipped to deal with it.

We owe it to humanity, not just to Jews themselves, who so often are the “canaries in the coalmine” when it comes to predicting institutional discrimination in society. If we allow Muslims to get away with this unjust persecution of the Jews, then Christians and all other non-Muslims will be next in the cross-hairs of the most oppressive, intolerant and totalitarian ideology on the face of the planet.

The Chrislam Deception and The Growing Darkness, by Danielle T’arna

     Not a good idea

Very few Christians have heard of Chrislam and most don’t know what it means. Chrislam began in the city of Lagos, the biggest city and sea port in Nigeria, in the 1980’s. It is propagated in the name of “interfaith” – a concept which sounds wonderful but is built on shaky ground, as we shall see.

To simplify the doctrine of Chrislam, we can say that the Bible and the Koran are viewed as equal, and in a service reading is done from both of them. People are free to call on Allah or God when they pray and adherents hold that Moses, Muhammad and Jesus were all prophets of equal status and they are to be loved equally.

In the music worship part, Christian and Islamic hymns are sung. Holidays like Christmas, Easter, Ramadan and other Christian and Islamic holidays are equally observed.  In their place of worship there is an altar built after the model that Abraham used and worshippers can come before this altar and seek God in prayer. Members are trained in evangelism and typically seek through proselytism to convert outsiders to their faith.

One may understand a natural desire to work for peace in the world – and Nigeria is a region of great conflict between those who follow Islam and those who follow Christianity – but such work needs to have a base in reality, and not to rely on false and foolish assumptions as Chrislam does.

One may view “interfaith” as a process of building a bridge between two sides, but as any architect will tell you, before you build a bridge you need to be certain of the ground on either side. Christianity, having gone through a Reformation, can be said to be built on solid, sturdy ground – by which I mean that it encourages reason, logic and critical analysis, and underpins most of the great achievements of Western civilisation. Islam on the other hand, unreformed since its inception in the 7th century, expands through a combination of fear, intimidation and terror, spread by the sword with a totalitarian outlook, global supremacist ambitions, and death for apostates.

Rather than solid and sturdy ground, Islam may be said to be built on a fetid swamp of quicksand. Criticism is not allowed on pain of death – which tells you straightaway that there is a problem that is not going to be overcome simply by extending a hand of friendship – and as many people can attest, “interfaith” only goes one way, with Christianity giving everything and Islam taking everything while giving nothing in return. This is not a recipe for long-term peace and partnership as equals in perpetuity.

Danielle T’arna, a political activist from the West Midlands who I have recently interviewed on my radio show “Five Minutes To Midnight”, has first-hand experience of Chrislam and has written a hard-hitting summary which I have great pleasure in reproducing here in full.

The Chrislam Deception

The growing darkness and emerging death of Christianity in the church

Abridged version – By Danielle T’arna

“I stand amongst you as one who is crying out for you to wake up before what you have dies and is taken from you, never to be seen again”

In recent years the merger of Christianity and Islam “Chrislam” has now reached the level in the UK that it has become part of mainstream Christianity and culture. It is more well known as Inter Faith in the UK and fully embraced by the church and state.

I truly believe that we celebrated our last traditional Christmas and Easter many years ago in the UK. For many years evangelical Christians have been warning of a deceptive doctrine and growing movement that has been slowly emerging over the last two decades. Chrislam slowly emerged in the UK when we started to see a mass influx of immigrants and refugees.

Where Muslim immigrants and refugees settled and were housed in major cities we started to see multi faith events and organizations develop along with church led community groups and charities that tried to promote community cohesion amongst its growing Muslim communities.

Chrislam has flourished because of the nations fear of Islamic terror attacks, fatwas being issued under Islamic blasphemy laws and a need to understand a very alien and exotic ideology and religion. We have seen these terrorist attacks and threats from Islam used as a tool to enforce cultural changes in many Christian countries like Canada, Sweden, Germany and France.

Chrislam infiltrated the church on many levels that included theology, community organisations and projects, the use of churches for Islamic worship and prayers, charities, the inclusion of Islam in church services, worship, prayers, sermons, music and arts festivals, changing the names of Christian festivals such as Christmas and Easter to terminology that accommodates Islam.

I personally have seen Christian schools promote the reading of the Koran (Qu’ran) and take their pupils for regular visits to their local mosque. I have seen Christian schools cater halal meals for Muslim pupils while enforcing halal food on the rest of its pupils. I have have seen the merger of both Christian and Muslim festivals in schools and in community run projects.

I have only just begun to scratch the surface of Chrislam in the UK with this article. I have only named just a few of the many government and non government organisations involved with Chrislam. It is a well funded and corrupt machine paid for by the church, government, Islamic foundations, Islamic countries and the European Union.

My immersion into the world of Chrislam

There is one question that I have been asking myself and that is“Why is the church inviting overseas missionaries to come and work in the UK ?” Surely it can’t be for the evangelism of a Christian nation ? I can answer this with my personal insight and involvement with one such missionary couple from 2014 – 2017

In late 2014 I was invited to a “community peace meal” in the Winson Green area of Birmingham by an Australian couple who are overseas missionaries. Ash and Anji Barker had recently arrived in Birmingham from working as missionaries in the Klong Toey slums of Bangkok. Anji had been invited to work in Birmingham by the UK Christian charity Oasis Trust[3] and to coordinate community activities in two of the charities Christian run Oasis Academy schools in Winson Green. When Ash and Anji moved into a very large vicarage called Newbigin House they quickly got to work establishing a charity called Newbigin Community Trust [2] which I was a founding trustee of. Newbigin Community Trust is just a part of the many projects run from Newbigin House[4]

During my time getting alongside Ash and Anji, I would observe how they worked with different groups of people in the community and how they would link with churches, work with local authorities, businesses and NGOs. Ash was a very laid back, loving and calm person. Anji on the other hand was a very active, encouraging and enabling person whose primary characteristic was that she never stopped talking and never thought about what she was saying. We were working with many Muslim families who had come to the UK as refugees and migrants. We started to adapt our work around the physical and emotional needs of local Muslims.

We installed special washing facilities for Muslims when they have finished using the toilet. We started to get halal only produce and set up cooking schools run by local Muslim women called “Flavors of Winson Green” for Christians to attend. The main part of Anji’s work centered on the Oasis Foundry community hub where she would run daily classes and groups for mainly Muslim women and many of the Muslim women would also get involved in community run events after school hours.

I started seeing Korans and Islamic scriptures placed around the house. Anji told me that one of the Muslim women was radicalised and was teaching English classes to other Muslim women at the school and there were concerns that she might be radicalizing the other Muslim women. I thought it was very odd that Anji was allowing this to happen and when I flagged it up it fell on deaf ears. I began to see holes appear with how Anji approached people and work. She would often make negative remarks about “dumb white Christians” and she welcomed such remarks being used by others.

She was aware that one of the vulnerable white teenage girls who attended youth club on Friday evenings had an adult Muslim boyfriend who was a taxi driver and would drop her off at youth club and would pick her up later. Anji did not flag this up to the police or social services despite me insisting she did. Her Manager knew about this and so did the headteacher.

During this period whenever there was an Islamic terrorist attack it would not be acknowledged or talked about so not to upset the Muslims who came to the house. Near the end of 2016 I started to doubt the authenticity of Ash and Anji’s mission as I saw how young white families were being discriminated against for being white. Despite the young family’s needs of support and help from our charity our main focus was providing support for Muslim families, some of whom were not in need of any support.

They started to offer immersion courses for paying Christians who wanted to gain experience working in a Muslim community in inner city Birmingham. I started to see that Ash and Anji were politically motivated and that the new progressive Christian movement that had become part of mainstream Christianity was ripe for people like Ash and Anji to introduce naive Christians to Islam.

The day Britain stood still

On Wednesday 22 March 2017 Britain changed forever. The Westminster terror attack by a jihadi was an attack on Britain and we were at war. Ash and Anji tried to contain my outrage and anger so it would not upset any Muslims. They tried to compare it to the IRA bombing campaigns on mainland Britain. I argued that it was nothing like the IRA attacks as we knew who our enemy was and that the government were tough on terrorism back then.

I started to see a bigger agenda appear regarding Islam and I began to question my involvement with Ash and Anji and Gas St church. The days following the Westminster terror attack many arrests were made across Birmingham and in Winson Green. A cold shudder went down my spine as I realised I could of known one of the terrorists or even had contact with them if they had come to one of our groups. It was then that I stopped being part of Ash and Anji’s work in Birmingham.

On Monday evening of the 22nd May 2017 in Manchester arena, 22 innocent lives were lost and over 60 mainly young girls were injured during the Ariana Grande concert. It was the day that changed my life forever.

I started to get as much information about Islam and what was happening in the world as I could, and I was in for the biggest shock of my life as I realised the scale of the threat of Islam is to the rest of the world along with its alliance with political forces who also want to see the end of western culture.

I started to become active in voicing my concerns about Islam. I soon became ostracised by the church, Christians and all the friends I had made in Winson Green apart from one young family I kept in contact with. I found myself on my own campaigning against Islam and how Christians were working in alliance with Islam to infiltrate church culture, teaching and leadership so that Chrislam would eventually become the norm in the church.

I later found out that the charity I had helped start hosted Eid celebrations in 2017 for the community in Winson Green and many of the Christian women garbed themselves in the hijab.

A bigger picture

During the summer of 2017 I was checking the lineups of various music festivals around the UK – one being Greenbelt, which is the biggest Christian music and arts festival in the UK and in the past helped to launch the careers of bands like U2 and The Alarm.

As I was looking through the lineup I started to notice that half of the bill were Muslim acts, teachers, politicians, activists and preachers. I was absolutely shocked so I investigated who was booking these Muslim acts and why,[5] The Muslim acts were paid for by the Wafic Said Foundation.[6]

As I investigated the money trail I found out that Wafic Said [7] was involved in the Al-Yamamah arms deal corruption scandal and Wafic Said was one of the people who was paid £billions by the British government so that Britain could secure arms contracts with Saudi Arabia and made it Britain’s largest ever export agreement. In return Britain would receive 600,000 barrels of crude oil per day.[8] So as the British government and establishment can be brought for the right price, it seems the same can be said for the church in the UK. The more one scratches at the surface the more corruption and collusion from both the church and state is exposed and even reaches to Canada.[9]

Behold the future

It is my belief that Chrislam is but a toy for the rabid dog of Islam to play with. Islam is using taqiyya to dominate Christianity and completely replace it as the official state religion of the UK.

Islam is playing a long game and when the time is right it will by force, bribes, political corruption and numbers dominate the UK and weave its influence and power into every fibre of the fabric of British society.

Great Britain has forever changed with Islam being used as the tool to enforce the destruction of our identity, culture, history, our laws and heritage. Once it is lost it will be lost forever.

Why we do what we do to oppose the barbaric and totalitarian 7th century ideology of Islam

  Muslims (of course)

I was taken this week with a post from a Twitter user, @ XxPLW2xX (Paula) who listed a whole bunch of reasons as to why we should not shut up about this barbaric and totalitarian 7th century ideology and the deleterious effect it is having on our democratic societies, despite the immense pressure we are coming under from politicians and the media to only say nice things about it, under pain of prosecution and of being called a “racist”, a “bigot”, and an “Islamophobe” (whatever that is.)

It struck me as being so clear, lucid and to the point, that it could almost serve as a personal mission statement for all of those individuals and / or organisations that have declared themselves, for one good reason or another, to be anti-Islam. Part of the problem that we have, when we are trying to organise ourselves against the most virulent threat that our civilisation has ever experienced, is that we are all pulling in different directions. What we want and need is a clear and coherent statement that we can all get behind and that tells everyone of goodwill (that is to say, all other non-Muslims) exactly why we are doing what we are doing.

For this reason, I am reproducing the post in full:

“Why I won’t shut up about Islam”

I may be a small lone voice but I am strong and passionate in my convictions and I know many others think the same as me. Islam is not a religion of peace and I am not a bigot, racist or Islamophobe for saying this, the truth.

I will stop talking about Islam when people are no longer killed, tortured and oppressed in its name. When I no longer have to read how innocents and children are slaughtered, accompanied by shouts of “Allah-hu-Akbar.” I will be quiet about Islam when it stops attempting to implement its claim of supremacy, when the calls for Sharia Law stop and when patriarchal cultures diminish.

I will shut up about Islam when there are no more Islamic terror atrocities, no new Islamic militant groups developing and killing in the name of Allah after being birthed in a womb of indoctrination and nurtured on hate. When non-Muslims are no longer branded kuffar, infidels or disbelievers. I will be quiet when Islam no longer poses a threat to humanity and civilisation.

I will stop talking about Islam when science is no longer met with hostility from your religion, when cures and vaccines are no longer waived away with religious dogma and fatwas. When a new discovery isn’t perceived to be a personal attack on your faith. I will be quiet when apostates are free from harm and isolation, when they can be open about rejecting Islam without hostility, threats and death.

I will shut up about Islam when child marriage is seen as disgusting and an abhorrent thing from the past. When sex with a 9 year old girl is no longer acceptable because Muhammad did it. When I no longer read accounts of 5 year old girls having their genitals mutilated to preserve their future chastity, how they will get no pleasure from sex and will suffer infections for the rest of their lives and most likely die in childbirth.

I will stop talking about Islam when wives are no longer beaten in public. When I no longer hear of women being oppressed, stoned and murdered in honour killings. When I no longer see women and children as young as 3 forced to wear a niqab. When women are no longer viewed as inferior in your religion. I will be quiet when animals aren’t tortured and inhumanely slaughtered for fun, when religiously blessed halal meat isn’t forced upon me.

I will shut up about Islam when stoning, whipping and amputation is no more. When people of other faiths can freely practice their religion in Muslim majority countries and communities without being subjected to abuse, harm or jizya. When it no longer calls for antisemitism and stops condemning non-believers to an eternal hell-fire. I will be quiet when Islam stops calling non-Muslims apes and pigs, and forbids friendships from other faiths.

I will stop talking about Islam when I no longer see young children bound in chains being beheaded slowly by Muslim men in the name of Allah. When gays are no longer killed, tortured, bullied and harassed due to the rampant homophobia that exists in your religion. I will be quiet when pregnant mothers aren’t forced to fast during Ramadan, when I don’t have to hear about people being hacked to death during Ramadan for being secular.

I will shut up about Islam when it stops violating numerous human rights, allowing slavery and sexual slavery. When females aren’t beaten to within an inch of their lives, when they can freely study and go to school. When girls are stopped from being enslaved by parents, guardians and husbands. I will be quiet when there are no genetically deformed babies from consanguinity (related marriage.)

I will stop talking about Islam when apologists stop blindly defending and appeasing it, and address what is said in Islamic scripture and what is taught in mosques. When I am not accused of being a bigot for speaking out against the atrocities that happen daily all around us in the name of a barbaric 7th century totalitarian ideology. I will be quiet when your religion can be openly discussed and criticised without fear of reprisal.

I won’t shut up about Islam until I cease to be told that the killings carried out by Islamic terrorists whilst shouting “Allah-hu-Akbar” has nothing to do with Islam. When people realise that Muslims attacking and killing other Muslims of a different sect *is* Islam. I will be quiet when the world realises that it’s not Islamophobic to disagree with the Islamic belief that I should convert, submit or die.

Islam is not a religion of peace and I am not a bigot, racist or Islamophobe for saying this, the truth.

We could do a lot worse than to adopt this – or something very close to it – as our mission statement, in order that we may come together as one purposeful and determined organisation, and thereby effectively combat the greatest threat our enlightened Judaeo-Christian civilisation has ever encountered.

Your comments and / or criticisms are welcome.

Canaries in the Coalmine – French Edition – Has Macron bitten off more than he can chew?

 Ever the optimist

Emmanuel Macron, the President of France, has finally decided that the presence of a “restive” Islamic community in France is worthy of his attention. In a move that betrays his woeful misunderstanding of the problem at hand, he has announced that he intends to “re-organise” Islam in France so that it is “better aligned” with the French state. After all, French law must remain supreme, and anyone who promotes Sharia Law as being somehow superior must be someone who misunderstands Islam, right?

Well, as the famous Chinese General Sun Tzu might have said – “Good luck with that, sonny.”

The problem – of course – is that Islam is an ideology that encourages its followers to pay scant regard to the man-made secular laws of the land where Muslims may happen to reside. Of course, when Muslims are in the minority, they pay lip service to the demands of the state; however when through an increase of demographics they become a significant presence (not necessarily a majority) they become progressively more vocal in their pursuit of Sharia Law as a means of governance – and they are not afraid to use violence in the pursuit of their objectives.

It is therefore hardly surprising that Emmanuel Macron’s proposed reforms have met with a certain amount of opposition. Muslim spokesmen and “community leaders” in France have denounced any attempt to curb the expansion of Islam as “racist”, “bigoted” and “Islamophobic” (hmm, where have I heard that before…)

This is important because France is one of the Canaries in the Coalmine when it comes to predicting what will happen in the UK over the next couple of decades or thereabouts. Islam brooks no opposition – it is either Islam’s way or the highway – and there is no tolerance, no compromise, no negotiation to be had when it comes to whether other religions, cultures or ways of life. None of these can co-exist with Islam. Quite simply, if we tolerate the intolerance of Islam, the inevitable conclusion will be that we will eventually cease to exist as a civilisation.

Already we are starting to see the breakdown of France as a civilised society. Quite apart from the hundreds of people who have been killed by Muslims in the name of Islam over the past four or five years, the rampant and virulent Muslim anti-Semitism – a natural consequence of allowing a large number of Muslims into a civilised country – has resulted in the exodus of at least 20 per cent of the Jewish population. This is a trend which is accelerating rapidly and which is replicated in every Western country where Muslims have been allowed to proliferate.

We are now at the point – not only within France, but within large parts of Western Europe – where the only possible realistic response is to  belatedly acknowledge that we have among us a large number of hostile aliens, adherents of an ideology whose avowed purpose is to destroy Western civilisation. We then have to take the appropriate action – by which I mean action appropriate for a nation to defend itself in times of war.  For make no mistake, this is a war – a war not of our own making – but a war declared on us by an implacable ideology that demands our submission, and it requires a suitably robust response on behalf of the state. With the honourable exceptions of politicians such as Geert Wilders of the Netherlands and Paul Weston of the United Kingdom, it remains to be seen whether there is anyone currently in power who can demonstrate the courage required to take the aforesaid appropriate action within the window of opportunity left open to us before we are swamped by the tsunami of Muslim demographics.

Weird Story of the Week

Islamic Republic of Iran’s armed forces top dog says West used lizards that can “attract atomic waves” for spying

No further comment needed. I’m off to feed my Atomic Nuclear Zionist Lizard with his favourite diet of Atomic Nuclear Zionist LizardBites (ASDA £3.99 per 250g)

He doesn’t like it all that much but it saves on the electricity bill when he perches on my lap and glows when I’m trying to read in the dark.

Here’s why Islam should no longer be considered as a religion under UK law.

   Scrabbling for justice

Due to the enormous amount of positive feedback that this article has generated, I am leaving it as a “sticky” – that is, it will be the first article visible when you call up http://www.counterjihadwarrior.com from your browser. To view other recently published articles by the Counter Jihad Warrior team, including myself, please refer to the “Recent Posts” and “Archives” sections in the sidebar. If you would like to search for articles based on specific topics then please use the “Tags” section.

This article is partly based on the excellent research undertaken by Graham Senior-Milne concerning the legal status of Islam in the UK.  It is of particular relevance to a March 2018 case of Religiously Aggravated Harassment in Folkestone Magistrates Court concerning Paul Golding and Jayda Fransen of Britain First – and is also relevant to this March 2017 case in Southwark Crown Court where the author of this article was similarly charged.

It may well also be relevant to numerous other cases of Religiously Aggravated Harassment that have been prosecuted since the Racial and Religious Hatred Act came into force in 2006.

Having considered all the arguments from Graham Senior-Milne’s research, it becomes obvious that if only the legal system would take these arguments into account, and find in our favour (as it undoubtedly should) then in addition to quashing the above-mentioned cases of Religiously Aggravated Harassment, we would solve a great many of our problems with Islam overnight. Considering that Islam is shaping up to be the world’s most intractable problem of the 21st century, this would be a most worthwhile goal, and one arguably deserving of a great deal of attention.

The author of this article attempted to have the subject debated in court in 2017, but was informed that there was no way that any judge in the UK would entertain such an idea in the current political climate, which is a sad indictment of the craven and cowardly attitude of those in power who should – in an ideal world – uphold the law without fear or favour, compared to the current policies of appeasement in relation to the increasingly arrogant and aggressive followers of the most barbaric, backward, misogynistic and totalitarian ideology the world has ever seen.

The basic argument is as follows: Islam should not be considered a religion in UK law because it does not meet certain criteria laid down by the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) which is currently the highest authority in our legal system.

In a case going back to 1982 it was stated that: in order to qualify for protection under Article 9 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) (Freedom of thought,conscience and religion), religious and philosophical beliefs must be worthy of respect in a democratic society, be not incompatible with human dignity and not conflict with the fundamental rights of others.”

If it is lawful to protect religious beliefs that meet these criteria, it must be unlawful to protect (via legal recognition) religious beliefs that do not meet these criteria, because such beliefs must either be not worthy of respect in a democratic society (Islam is unquestionably anti-democratic) and/or incompatible with human dignity (the dignity of women, for instance, who are mere chattels in Islam) and/or conflict with the fundamental rights of others (such as gays, including gay Muslims, who, under Sharia law, must be killed).

Following on from this, the logic would be that, in law, you cannot harass a person based on their religion if, in law, that person has no religion (what they believe is not recognized, in law, as a religion and therefore does not qualify for the legal protections that apply, in law, to religions recognized as such).

In other words, ‘religious harassment of a Muslim’ is, in UK law, a contradiction in terms; it is a legal impossibility.

While Islam has been treated as a religion in numerous cases over the years, this issue has never been argued before a court; courts have just assumed that Islam is a religion in law. In other words, there is no binding precedent on this issue.

This may sound surprising, but you can perhaps understand why courts would avoid this issue like the plague, even if it occurred to them that they might consider it in the first place. But courts do not hesitate to apply these criteria to other philosophical or religious beliefs – so why should Islam be exempt?

Consider the sheer idiocy of the proposition that a set of beliefs which are incompatible with the human rights of others (say, sacrificing babies on the first Tuesday of every month), which would not be protected under Article 9 ECHR as philosophical beliefs, would be protected simply because they are ‘religious beliefs’.

Would you protect Nazi beliefs if Nazis believed that Hitler was God? Of course not. Yet there is a direct parallel with Islam. Rampant antisemitism? Check. An inbuilt sense of supremacism? Check. A quest for worldwide domination by any means available, including fear, violence, intimidation and terror? Check again. It can easily be seen that Islam has much more in common with Nazism than it does with, say, Judaism or Christianity.

In another case from 2005, it was stated that “Article 9 embraces freedom of thought, conscience and religion. The atheist, the agnostic, and the sceptic are as much entitled to freedom to hold and manifest their beliefs as the theist. These beliefs are placed on an equal footing for the purpose of this guaranteed freedom. Thus, if its manifestation is to attract protection under Article 9 then a non-religious belief, as much as a religious belief, must satisfy the modest threshold requirements implicit in this Article.

With regard to the ‘modest threshold requirements’, these are stated at para. 23 (my emphasis): “Everyone, therefore, is entitled to hold whatever beliefs he wishes. But when questions of ‘manifestation’ arise, as they usually do in this type of case, a belief must satisfy some modest, objective minimum requirements. These threshold requirements are implicit in Article 9 of the European Convention and comparable guarantees in other human rights instruments.”

“The belief must be consistent with basic standards of human dignity or integrity. Manifestation of a religious belief, for instance, which involved subjecting others to torture or inhuman punishment would not qualify for protection.”

“The belief must relate to matters more than merely trivial. It must possess an adequate degree of seriousness and importance. As has been said, it must be a belief on a fundamental problem. With religious belief this requisite is readily satisfied.”

“The belief must also be coherent in the sense of being intelligible and capable of being understood. But again, too much should not be demanded in this regard. Typically, religion involves belief in the supernatural. It is not always susceptible to lucid exposition or, still less, rational justification. The language used is often the language of allegory, symbol and metaphor.”

“Depending on the subject matter, individuals cannot always be expected to express themselves with cogency or precision. Nor are an individual’s beliefs fixed and static. The beliefs of every individual are prone to change over his or her lifetime. Overall, these threshold requirements should not be set at a level which would deprive minority beliefs of the protection they are intended to have under the Convention.”

The bottom line is: A person can believe what ever he likes but his beliefs must meet the threshold requirements to be recognized and afforded protection in law.

It is true that Islam is given as an example of a religion in the explanatory notes to s.44 Equality Act 2006, but explanatory notes are not definitive of the meaning of an Act. Also, the explanatory notes state:

‘Section 44 defines what is meant by “religion or belief” for the purposes of this Act. Section 44(a) defines “religion” as “any religion”, a broad definition in line with the freedom of religion guaranteed by Article 9 of the ECHR.’

This makes it clear that, for the purposes of the Equality Act 2006, a religion can only be recognized and treated as a religion if it meets the criteria for Article 9 ECHR (because Article 9 ECHR does not recognize or protect beliefs or religions that do not meet the criteria specified in Campbell and Cosans v United Kingdom [1982] ECHR 1).

In any event, even if a statute did provide that Islam is a religion, that statute would itself be unlawful under Article 9 ECHR, given that the ECHR (and the case law of the ECtHR, which interprets the ECHR) overrides domestic law, whether it be statute or other.

Let’s see how many people out there would support a Judicial Review (the legal mechanism whereby a senior judge would be obliged to consider the proposition that Islam should no longer be considered a religion in law. It is admittedly an expensive process, however if a mere 3000 people (out of our population of 60 million) were to pledge just £10 each then we could take the first step on the road to free our country from the tyranny of Islam. Please register your interest by leaving a message of support at the following email address: editor@counterjihadwarrior.com. You don’t have to pledge any money as such at this stage – I am just trying to gauge the level of interest, and if we manage to get enough people expressing support then we could set up a proper fund-raising campaign.

We owe it to our children and grandchildren to do everything we can to help provide them with a better world, free from the threat of Islam, Sharia law, and all the other manifestations of this barbaric, misogynistic 7th-century totalitarian ideology. Please help us to meet this goal if you possibly can.

The Crusades – What our children are NOT being taught in schools, and why it is important

Many people don’t know that the Crusades were NOT the result of warmongering European Christians suddenly deciding that they wanted to invade foreign lands and kill lots of innocent Muslims. This is because the historical narrative has been systematically hijacked by the Left and its stranglehold over academia – whereby only the politically correct versions of the story are allowed to be taught.

Dr Duke Pesta and Stefan Molyneux have a most illuminating discussion here, concerning the importance of the historical narrative in determining our place in the world, and why our children are being taught to regard Western Judaeo-Christian civilisation as inherently evil when in fact it is arguably the best development in the history of mankind – bar none.

This is compulsive viewing for everyone passionate about the defence of freedom, and is well worth seventy-five minutes of your time. (Hat tip – Kel Fritzi of Red Fox Blog Talk Radio.)

Not Every Muslim is an Inbred Welfare Parasite

 

In recent times, I have been taken to task for suggesting that there is a high correlation between inbreeding, welfare parasitism and Muslim immigrants to Western nations. And to be fair, I  acknowledge that just because a particular Muslim may be a product of a policy of unrestricted inbreeding, that does not automatically make them a welfare parasite, or vice versa.

However, inbreeding is a contentious issue when it comes to Muslims. Personally I blame it all on Allah, who apparently thought that first cousin marriage was absolutely hunky dory. Hey Allah – yes, you, buddy – how come you didn’t predict the DNA research of Watson and Crick? And I don’t want to hear about how all that omnipotence leads to administrative errors.

When it comes to welfare parasitism – here is a perfect example of what happens when you allow Muslims to abuse our public services in the UK. How many times do we have to say it – you should never, ever, trust a follower of an ideology that promotes deceit as a primary virtue. And of course, it’s not just in the UK that we have this problem.

Some might say that it is our own fault for having such a generous welfare system, and then allowing an unrestricted number of immigrants from Muslim countries to access it. I have a radical solution – which is to have either  a generous welfare system, or open borders, but not both. A country without a generous welfare system will be unattractive to most Muslim migrants, whether or not it has open borders. Simples.
