The Islamisation of Britain continues apace;

Channel 4 is to broadcast the Muslim call to prayer during Ramadan this year, it revealed yesterday. It is believed to be the first time a mainstream British television channel has broadcast the Islamic call to prayer. Starting next week, the broadcaster will transmit the morning call to prayer daily for the 30 days of Ramadan.

This is entirely predictable as Islam is afforded the status of being our National religion. Those who seek to see Sharia law prosper in the UK and who seek to turn the UK into part of dar al Islam must be enormously pleased with the dhimmis on Channel 4 who grovel to Islam. I’ll not be watching Channel 4.

Of course, it’s not JUST Channel 4 who seem obsessed with the Islamic call to prayer. I’m sure you will remember Obama telling us that he reckons that it is “one of the prettiest sounds on earth”. Can’t say I share this deep appreciation but then again my middle name is not Hussein….

  1. I have to say I like the sound of the call to prayer. Eerie and evocative. (And I’m from about as un-muslim a background as you can find.)

    Still though, I think Channel 4 are only doing this for publicity rather than any real dedication to promoting minorities (as they claim).

  2. The sound is about as “pretty” as the sound of a rusty saw hacking off the head of a Christian priest by Syrian rebels, as happened a couple of days ago.

    Wikileaks has the demonic footage of these dark age monsters, but I haven’t looked at it, and won’t.
    Instead, I’ll sit back and listen to the mellifluous sounds of the muslim call to prayers.

  3. I meant in a neighbourhood near you Reg,
    You sweet, innocent, little idealist you. 🙂

  4. Agi,

    I don’t get your point. I’d be pretty sure the noise pollution lads and local residents wouldn’t allow the call to prayer in a neighbourhood near me. I just think it is an evocative sound when in a muslim country.

    My main point was that C4’s intention is to create controversy.

  5. The Call to Prayer in the public air is a Call to Dominance.

    Every time it sounds, it is a reminder to nonconformists of who is in charge and who should watch their step.

  6. I quite liked the call to prayer when in India. (Listening to it while doing laps in the hotel roof pool.) I don’t think I’d want it here though. The bloody church bells are bad enough.

  7. I don’t mind it when over there.

    But see, from the great wiki

    The main purpose behind the multiple loud pronouncements of adhan in every mosque is to make available to everyone an easily intelligible summary of Islamic belief. It is intended to bring to the mind of every believer and non-believer the substance of Islamic beliefs, or its spiritual ideology.

    The intent is to get into the head of the nonbeliever too, in a way that nonverbal bells never could. This call is a means of social control and dominance. Sounding everywhere, aided by loudspeakers, so that there is no escape.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adhan

    Channel 4 is to be condemned for playing any part in this.

    Do any amadans here still contest the ” slippery slope theory”?

    I actually like the classical Arabic music that one hears over there. I have no idea what they are saying but it sounds interesting.

  9. “It is intended to bring to the mind of every believer and non-believer the substance of Islamic beliefs”

    Well, I don’t know Arabic so that’s grand. I just listen to the tune!

    I’m safe enough in Templeogue anyway. St Jude’s will just need to put loudspeakers by their bells to compete.

  10. Phantom,

    Nope, I was being flippant.

    As I say, it is an evocative sound in muslim countries.

  11. “I don’t get your point. “”

    My point is Reg that if you consider all that is going on right across the Arab Muslim world, ” eerie and evocative” are the last things I would associate with the imam’s call to prayer.
    It may sound morbid but when one considers all that is happening in Afghanistan, Libya, Syria and now Egypt,
    their attitude to and treatment of women
    (Phantom mentioned Tahrir Square)
    Their attitude to homosexuality
    to crime and punishment etc etc.

    It simply sends shivers down my back; and I suspect given time and indulgence by soppy westerners the same sort of thing will be coming to a street near you Reg.

  12. You had me frightened for a minute, bro.

    Yes, it has a kind of haunting beauty.

    Which is ok, there.

  13. What is Channel 4’s policy on broadcasting other religions? Does it broadcast the Angelus? Are there Buddhist, Shinto, and Jewish prayers given equal time?

    From the article we are told that the Muslim call to prayer will be issued in front of St. Paul’s. Why exactly? I suspect if a gospel chorus intentionally sang in front of some Mosque we’d have a riot on our hands.

    They seem to be creating an strange situation.

  14. Whilst I don’t agree with this or any other religious call to prayer being broadcast on TV ultimately C4 are a privately funded station who are answerable only to their advertising clients. I think that Reg is correct, C4 are creating controversy with this and their advertisers probably love them for it.

    Don’t like it? easy solution, don’t watch it.

    Regarding the video; was the Priest killed for being a Christian or because he allegedly was collaborating with the Assad regime? I imagine that some will jump on this as some kind of justification – it’s not, I just think that we need clarification on wether it was a religiously motivated sectarian murder or something else.

    Anyway, similar things happened in the UK where some would attempt to decapitate others just because they didn’t go to a different church to the one the murderers didn’t go to.

  15. For a society that has rapidly abdicated its own Christian religious tradition, they’re pretty quick to grab onto a hostile ditty from the wastes of Arabia.

  16. Mahons,

    C4 has a history of creating publicity through controversy (in between the odd TV gem). I doubt they give 2 figs about any religion but see this as an opportunity to get some publicity.

    “and I suspect given time and indulgence by soppy westerners the same sort of thing will be coming to a street near you Reg”

    I sincerely doubt it. For a start, all these Croatians that are going to inundate my street as of yesterday just won’t stand for it.

  17. Channel 4 likes to see itself as “daring and trendy”.
    But here’s one of the great paradoxes of our time.
    Our government cheerfully sends our soldier boys off Afghanistan to make the UK “safer” by denying training camp facilities to terrorist groups there. Some of them come back, others come back minus bits.

    But nothing much is said about the other “British” Muslims going off to fight alongside Petr’s Oppressed in other Muslim lands.
    So our lads can get killed not only “out there” but also “back here” at home in multiculti UK..

    Ain’t that a shocker!
    And no UK tv station wants to examine that one…

  18. It is a huge own goal.

    Now that they’ve done it this year, they’ll never be able to stop doing it.

  19. Mahons –

    It’s channel 4 being Channel 4.

    While the Queen’s Chrsitmas Message (admittedly now a cesspit of politically correct drivel drafted by government) goes out on the BBC, Channel 4 has it’s alternative Chrsitmas message. A couple of years ago it was given by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

    When it features Christianity, it’s in the form of Jesus Camp, where viewers are invited to be horroified at some evangelical headbangers. 1500 years of Christianity in the British Isles isn;t interesting enough, apparently.

    Channel 4 is The Guardian TV. It’s always taken the view that it should outrage. This is why the call to prayer will be broadcast from St Paul’s, the centre of the Protestant faith in England. It’s designed to provoke, but that’s Channel 4.

    Paul McMahon is correct that it’s funded privately via commercials, but it’s a state-owned broadcaster.

  20. Paul McMahon is correct that it’s funded privately via commercials, but it’s a state-owned broadcaster.

    Exceptionally interesting detail there.

  21. Phantom

    So do I mate. I enjoy the old Arabic chanting as well as the Gregorian chanting.

  22. Paul McMahon totally misses the point in saying if you don’t like it don’t watch it.
    Never heard of the phrase “Oxygen of Publicity”, Paul?

    Muslims, on learning that a mainstream channel welcomes their countrywide call to prayers will consider this a green light to broadcast on an ever-increasing scale, even from private houses.

    Think again. It’s a thin end of an extremely wide and ever-expanding muslim wedge.

  23. Dave

    To be specific, I like the large Arabic string orchestras. There’s a majesty to this music.

    It seems like some of the ” old fashioned ” styles continue to be popular there. Which is great.

  24. Paul McMahon totally misses the point

    Oh I get the point perfectly Bernard. It’s about creating controversy and, as I said, their advertisers probably love them for it.

    I also get the point that now that this has happened you think that C4 are on the slippery slope and will eventually become an Arabic speaking, Sharia Law controlled Brit version of Al Jazera.

    I don’t think that that’s the case at all.

  25. Paul,
    re your 2:33.

    Not watching something is not enough. You talk as one who has a complacent belief that “not watching” something is an option that is always with us.
    The fact is these options of freedom were fought for over time and can be taken away in even less time. Life is not a smorgas board of options that we can all choose from and continue to live in happy harmony with each other. Make the wrong choice and you could end up with no more choices. There are plenty of regimes around the world where this is true.

    Secondly re the murder of the Syrian Christian priest;
    If you would be willing to go out there and question those responsible for killing him whether by sawing off his head or a bullet, I would gladly help towards your travelling expenses..

  26. Agi, see my previous:

    I don’t know if that’s an attempt at humor or just a ridiculously facile comment which contributes absolutely nothing to the discussion.

  27. The topic is Channel 4, not the Syrian Priest’s execution (which appears not to have been the beheading that is on the internet).

    Some people sometimes confuse provocative with smart when it is actually the opposite. Channel 4 may be economically answerable to its advertisers, but it also has a duty to its viewers. It can and should be criticized where its broadcasts deserve criticism.

  28. Paul,
    It’s a sincere comment. How many decapitations, executions or punishments do we have to see on vid clips to decide
    “Actually, this is not a system of justice I wish to see practised in MY country.”
    For what ever reason the poor men were killed, to stand there applauding and praising God whilst taking digital camera pics makes me think any investigation of the facts can be done by a younger, less cynical man than myself. 🙂

  29. Actually, this is not a system of justice I wish to see practised in MY country.

    Even though it already was.

    People are jumping on the Priest in Syria and, implying at least, that he was killed because he was a Christian. I dunno, perhaps he was but it was also alleged that he was a collabarator with the Assad regime. Horrible things happen to spies, collabarators etc in war time. Particularly in civil war situations.

    It’s certainly a relevant detail.

  30. The attempted beheading of those who were percieved to be a different religion from their killers.

  31. Paul,

    and this one..

    What?

    You are reposting what has already been posted.

  32. I was pointing out the different reasons posited for the murder of the men.

  33. I don’t see any reason given for the murder just speculation and allegation.

    From the first report

    The Vatican news agency said the circumstances of the killing were not fully clear.
    But local sources said the attackers were linked to the jihadist group known as al-Nusra Front.

    The second

    Syrian insurgents reportedly decapitated two Syrian Christians in public for allegedly working with government forces

    To repeat my earlier comment;

    Regarding the video; was the Priest killed for being a Christian or because he allegedly was collaborating with the Assad regime? I imagine that some will jump on this as some kind of justification – it’s not, I just think that we need clarification on wether it was a religiously motivated sectarian murder or something else

    We are still none the wiser.

  34. True.
    Personally whilst I am shocked at the murder of the priest and the other two men (and the full vid IS gruesome) I am more concerned with the reports that Assad’s opponents are increasingly militantly jihadist led.
    So WHY are the UK led by the USA keen on arming these “freedom fighters”? It makes no sense unless there are other reasons behind it.
    My concern is that if Islamic nations in the Middle East become more extremist,what is the likelihood of more attacks on western soldiers in their own home countries, or ieds being used in attacks on western security forces?

  35. Not being British, American or mid – eastern I can’t answer any of those questions.
