FREEDOM OR ISLAM

By David Vance On February 3rd, 2012 at 8:22 pm

This caught my eye today. 

A Belgian politician has risked causing uproar among Muslims after starting a ‘Women Against Islamization’ campaign featuring his 19-year-old daughter wearing a burka and a bikini.

Filip Dewinter, leader of the Vlaams Belang party, uses a shot of his daughter An-Sofie Dewinter in the dark blue bikini for the political campaign. The glamorous teenager dons a burka that covers her head and face, while the rest of the Muslim garment is draped over her back. The provocative image is likely to inflame tensions among Islamic groups and nationalists in the racially-divided country. The poster shows the words ‘Freedom or Islam?’ written on a red bar across Ms Dewinter’s breasts.

Thoughts? It seems to me that this is a perfectly reasonable, if colourful, way to have a debate on whether Islam is compatible with freedom.

THUMBS UP FOR IMMIGRATION

By Pete Moore On February 1st, 2012 at 2:10 pm

Four muslims have been found guilty of planning bomb attacks at the London Stock Exchange, the American Embassy and other targets in London. The Telegraph reports they’re from London, Stoke and Cardiff. Such is the genuine catastrophe of mass immigration inflicted on British society by the ruling elite.  Point of order: though they were born in London, Stoke and Cardiff, they are wholly alien to those places with no historical or cultural link. In this fundamental sense they will always be from somewhere else.

OVER REPRESENTED

By David Vance On January 22nd, 2012 at 2:05 pm

Muslims make up less than 3% of the UK population;

One third of inmates at one of Britain’s most notorious youth jails are Muslims and the religion is attracting a large number  of converts. There are 229 Muslims out of a total of 686 youngsters detained at Feltham Young Offenders’ Institution in West London, according to Ministry of Justice figures. There are now so many worshippers at Friday prayers that they have to be split between Feltham’s mosque and its gym.Sources claim that converts  are attracted by the chance  of better food and a more comfortable regime. But there are also fears that some are being radicalised.

Why the over representation of young Muslims? Why the attraction to convert to Islam? Is it possible that some in-mates reckon that better food and better conditions make the transit to Islam so attractive that they are prepared to embrace it? Pragmatism over principle? Why would the food served to Muslims be better than that supplied to non-Muslims? What forces are in play here and what do they say about our judicial system?

TOLERANCE

By David Vance On January 9th, 2012 at 10:20 pm

A sad but all too familiar tale;

” An evangelical pastor from Uganda who recently began preaching support for Israel, is being treated in an Israeli hospital after an acid attack.

Pastor Umar Mulinde, 38, arrived in Israel on Jan. 5 for emergency medical treatment at Tel Aviv’s Sheba Medical Center following an acid attack that severely burned his face and torso and damaged his right eye.

The attackers shouted “Allah Akbar” (God is great) after pouring acid on Mulinde on Dec. 24 in Kampala. Mulinde converted to Christianity after spending much of his life as a Muslim.”

ALL AMERICAN HIJAB…

By David Vance On January 3rd, 2012 at 9:53 am

It’s the pathetic dhimmitude that one has come to expect from the Obama regime;

First the Pentagon hosts the 9/11 imam. Then the Marines open a mosque at Quantico. Now the Army’s letting JROTC cadets wear the hijab. What next?

In a letter to a Muslim group sent on Defense Secretary Leon Panetta’s behalf, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army Larry Stubblefield said the Army will now let Muslims in the Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps wear the Islamic headscarf during training and parade formations.

“Based on your concerns, the Army has reviewed its JROTC uniform policy and will develop appropriate procedures to provide cadets the opportunity to request the wear of religious head dress, such as the turban and hijab,” Stubblefield wrote. “The Army prides itself in being a diverse organization, comprised of individuals from many faiths and religions. We appreciate you bringing this matter to our attention.”

The group who filed the complaint? The Council on American-Islamic Relations, the same one the Justice Department implicated in a scheme to raise millions for terrorists in America. CAIR is so shady the IRS recently revoked its nonprofit status for failing to disclose funding sources for the past three years in violation of federal law. It’s so dirty FBI Director Robert Mueller recently testified he refuses to do outreach with it.

So why are we taking policy cues from a group former Pentagon intelligence chief Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin calls a “dangerous front” for the radical Muslim Brotherhood, which he says is trying to infiltrate and sabotage the U.S. government and military from within?

Why indeed? It strikes me that after four years of Obama, the US has become weaker, much more inclined to appease Islam. We saw it at Fortd Hood and we keep seeing it.   The image of Hijab wearing cadets should strike fear into every thinking American. It seems to inspire Obama.

YOU CAN CALL ME (HAL)AL….

By David Vance On January 1st, 2012 at 11:02 am

Should Westminster, the mother of Parliaments, the epicentre of British democracy, serve up HALAL meat? Some Muslims are demanding it… 

“The Palace of Westminster has rejected demands to serve halal meat in its restaurants. Muslim MPs and peers have been told they cannot have meat slaughtered in line with Islamic tradition because the method – slitting an animal’s throat without first stunning it – is offensive to many of their non-Muslim colleagues. The stance has infuriated some parliamentarians who have eaten meat in the Palace’s 23 restaurants and cafes, having been assured that it was halal.  Lord Ahmed of Rotherham said: ‘I did feel misled. I think a halal option should be made available.’

I think the basis of the request demonstrates the appalling arrogance of Islam. This is the UK and we do not slit the throats of animals before stunning the creatures. Yet Islam demands that WE change our tradition and that we accept their ways, savage as it is, in this case. It may seem a small area to argue but it is symbolic. If Islam can get Halal meat on the Westminster menu, you can bet that more demands will follow as the dhimmi class are challenged repeatedly and repeatedly to concede, to submit to the Religion of Peace.

THE SCOURGE OF ISLAM

By David Vance On December 31st, 2011 at 11:23 am

Well, I was planning to travel to the Maldives in 2012 until I read this;

The Maldives government has ordered all spas in resorts to be closed after protests by an Islamist party which claimed they were being used as a front for prostitution.  The tourism ministry told all resort hotels across the islands to shut their spas and health centres with immediate effect.

“An Islamic party has been agitating against spas hoping to embarrass the government,” a senior government figure told the AFP news agency. Last week the opposition Adhaalath party, a conservative religious movement, staged a protest in the capital Male against such spas, arguing that they were being used as brothels. The party’s website features an article criticising “lustful music”.

I have been to many Spas and the idea that they are for “prostitution” beggars belief but tells you plenty about the mindset of the Islamists concerned.

It gets worse;

However, despite its idyllic, laid-back setting, Islamic fundamentalism has been on the rise in the Maldives in recent years. There have been anti-semitic protests recently about the transport ministry’s decision to allow direct flights from Israel, while a restaurant that hung up Christmas decorations last year was also targeted. Last year, a Western couple were abused during their “Islamic blessing”as pork-eating “infidels” and “swine”. “A growing number of Maldivian students are going to study in Saudi Arabia and Pakistan where they are learning a radical Wahhabi interpretation of Islam,” Dr Hassan Saeed, the country’s former attorney-general, said when he resigned in 2007.

So, Maldives may be about to crossed off the list. Tourists will not pay £££thousands to go to luxury resort with no Spa. Never mind global warming, Islam will sink the Maldives.

ISLAM IN THE UK….

By David Vance On December 30th, 2011 at 10:50 am

Just an everyday story….

A Christian convert whose body was found dumped in a canal on Christmas morning was the mother of a month-old baby boy, it has emerged.

Ruby Love, 23, from Harrow, North London was found by a dog walker in the Grand Union Canal in Southall, West London, by a dog walker shortly before midday on Sunday.Manzar Juma, 27, the father of two of her children, was charged by police with her murder. He is understood to be Muslim and unemployed. He is due to appear in court on Friday.

Quite. God help the young boy.

LIVE AND LET DIE

By David Vance On December 23rd, 2011 at 9:34 am

Interesting article here concerning the persecution of Christians across the Arab world as the alleged “Spring” turns into cold Winter!

The Americans have gone now, and Iraq’s Christian communities – some of the world’s oldest – are undergoing an exodus on a biblical scale. Of the country’s 1.4 million Christians, about two thirds have now fled.

Although the British Government is reluctant to recognise it, a new evil is sweeping the Middle East: religious cleansing.

In Tunisia, priests are being murdered. Maronite Christians in Lebanon have, for the first time, become targets of bombing campaigns. Christians in Syria, who have suffered as much as anyone from the Assad regime, now pray for its survival. If it falls, and the Islamists triumph, persecution may begin in earnest.

The idea of Christianity as a kind of contagion that is foreign to the Arab world is bizarre: it is, of course, a Middle Eastern religion successfully exported to the pagan West. Those feet, in ancient times, came nowhere near England’s mountains green. The Nativity is a Middle Eastern story about a child born to a Jewish mother, whose first visitors were three wise Iranians and who was then swept off to Egypt to escape Roman persecution.

His Apostles later scattered to Libya, Turkey and Iraq, to establish the Christian communities that are now under threat. For most of history, they have coexisted happily with Muslims: dressing the same way, even celebrating each other’s festivals. The rise of the veil, and other cultural dividing lines, is a relatively modern phenomenon.

Isn’t the toxic truth that Islam cannot and will not happily co-exist with other faiths when it gets into power. Live and let live is now passe and has become live and let die, if you are a follower of Christ in these lands. Remarkably our politicians seem blase about this rampant intolerance, this naked evil.

THE RICHNESS OF MULTICULTURALISM

By David Vance On December 22nd, 2011 at 8:47 am

Wonder what you think about this?

A baby born to a Muslim mother after an affair must be adopted to prevent the child becoming the victim of an honour killing, the Court of Appeal ruled today. The baby’s mother, who is not married, was so ‘terrified’ of how her family would react to her affair with a married man and becoming pregnant that she ran away from home. She then concealed her pregnancy by wearing loose clothes and travelling to the other side of town for her antenatal care.

Hang on a second, the child must be adopted less “honour killing” takes it young life. In Britain, in 2011?

“Upholding Mrs Justice Parker’s decision to make an adoption order, the appeal judges said: ‘The mother’s evidence, supported as it was by her actions, and the evidence of (the father) and an experienced police officer, drove the judge to conclude that refusal of the order would carry with it a significant risk of physical harm.

‘In our judgment this conclusion cannot be criticised.’

The adopting couple, Mr and Mrs A, were ‘loving and devoted adopters to whom Q has formed a deep attachment’. The couple were Muslims who had taken advice from their imam that they could adopt Q. The judge had rightly concluded that under Islamic law and tradition ‘there would be no long-term harmful consequence in adoption’.

WHY is the Judge concerning himself about Islamic law in Britain. Surely it is the primacy of British law – the ONLY  law – that matters?
