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.

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.

Proof positive that Islam scrambles your brain

 

If you ever wondered whether or not Islam scrambles your brain, look no further than this article. It must be wonderful to be such a logical, well-reasoned product of Turkish academia.

On the other hand – it’s obvious when you think about it. Back in the day, Noah must have communicated with his sons by mobile phone. Stands to reason – what other explanation could there be?

And before we write off all those Biblical characters as uneducated peasants, let us not forget that the Ark must have been driven by nuclear power.

Personally, I’ve always wondered if Noah collected bees. I suspect that the answer to that could be in the Ark Hives.
