Over the past few years I have become increasingly aware of a growing Muslim presence in Cardiff – most visibly in figures shrouded in black sheets with only their eyes showing – the “liberated” Muslim woman.
I find the growing Muslim presence in Wales alarming – not because I’m a “narrow-minded racist” as the liberal left likes to dismiss anyone who dares question the increasing multiculturalism of Europe – but because I see a threat to our value of basic tolerance and freedom.
In truth, I once considered myself a bit of a liberal leftist and embraced our Muslim brothers and sisters thinking we were all going to have a jolly time together. It is only after extensive reading and studying the issues of Muslim immigration to Europe that I have realized the folly of my acceptance of Islam among us.
By and large Muslim immigrants in Europe (and that includes Wales) are not immigrants in the common sense of the term. They are colonists. An immigrant becomes a member of the country he or she moves to, adapting the local values and social norms. Colonists have no interest in integrating but are hell bent on imposing their values and social norms onto their new home.
You don’t have scratch the surface of the growing Muslim presence to see the what’s at stake. The fact is that many Muslims are not simply failing to integrate, they are positioning themselves as enemies within.
The biggest threat for our future is demographics. The indigenous European population is not reproducing at a sustainable rate but the incoming Muslim population is multiplying and expanding rapidly.
Currently numbered at around 25 million, Muslims will form the majority in 20 years if trends continue. We will then all be living under Sharia Law in the UK (Sharia courts have already been established here).
My wake up call to the growing threat of Islam to the West came from a rather unexpected source, the author Aayan Hirsi Ali, a Somalian Muslim women who emigrated to Holland where her eyes were opened to Western values.
Like many other Islamic women she suffered horrific abuse growing up including genital mutilation which is still widely practised throughout the Islamic world including the UK and Europe.
She investigated and made public the growing number of ‘honour killings’ in Holland and was later elected as a member of the Dutch Parliament.
She then produced a short film called Submission (the meaning of ‘Islam’) with Amsterdam film maker Theo van Gogh.
Theo Van Gogh was later murdered on his bicycle in Amsterdam by a Muslim emigrant for making the film. A note was pinned to his chest with a knife claiming Ayaan would be next. She had to go into hiding and even to this day her life is in threat.
The growing Islamic presence in Europe reflects a moral weakness in the UK and the EU. In the name of ‘tolerance’ and ‘multiculturalism we are bending over backwards to accommodate a religion and culture that glorifies the subjugation of women (including beating of wives, female genital mutilation, family “honour” killing, and forcing women to dress like black rubbish bags). We have become apologists for a backwards mentality stuck in the medieval age where rape victims are blamed and punished and homosexuals and adulterers are punished by death.
Let’s grow a backbone and say enough is enough to this creeping social poison in our communities. There is no room for Islam in Western civilisation. It’s been a long and hard struggle to achieve the degree of freedom of thought and action we have. Why are we so keen to give it up to appease the Islamic bigots?
Last word to Irish-born Pat Condell – one of the few people left unafraid to speak the truth about Islam in Europe.
