It is being widely reported this morning that American Journalist Jim Foley has been beheaded by the Islamic State. The British Press is making a great deal of noise that the low-life savage that killed Jim Foley was speaking English with a British accent.
If this is the case I think the whole of the United Kingdom, well those without sympathies to the scum that killed Jim Foley, will support me in saying we have to fight extremism now, and we have to do it head on. There needs to be no more fooling around with government initiatives, no more talks from Imams in schools advising young Muslims not to go down this road. Extremism has to be stopped in it’s tracks and it has to be stopped now.
That British men and women are leaving the country to fight in a land that half of them can’t even pinpoint on a map is sickening. There can be no more excuses. No more bleating about underprivilege and lack of integration. No more denying the fact that we have far more extremists in this country than the UK government is prepared to admit to. No more preventing the police from acting before atrocities like this, and the Lee Rigby killing take place.
The police know who many of these people are, they should be given the powers to round them up and they should be tried for war crimes, for that’s what they are committing. Just because the government fails to admit we are at war doesn’t make it any less true. I can deny I am overweight, but the fact remains that I am…there’s no getting away from the facts.
For years the people of Great Britain had to listen to the ranting of Abu Hamza, the hook handed cleric who spewed forth his filth on the streets of London.
8 years. 8. Years.
Before the racist comments start I am not anti-Muslim, I am anti cold-blooded, cowardly murder. A shackled, unarmed man, most likely weakened by two years of incarceration is killed by a man who is too cowardly to even show his face. It must be far easier to kill a man whom you know can’t fight back, who can’t even throw a punch to try and defend himself.
This is the formula that the IS use. They raid towns and villages killing unarmed people who cannot fight back. Their spread across the Middle East has been swift because of this. Well the time has come to say no more.
These cowardly, masked raiders will at some point return to their home countries, or will be in contact with sympathizers in their own countries. They will bring this war to us, and our governments, particularly the weak-willed cabinet of David Cameron and Nick Clegg are doing little to prevent it. Making membership of a terrorist organisation illegal means nothing if you don’t enforce it on every occasion.
If someone with just a day to day knowledge of extremism can work out that airstrikes to rescue a group of people stuck on a mountain is not going to prevent further incursions and carnage, then the governments also know this.
The differences between Christianity and Islam are profound ones. The Bible gives guidance, the Koran gives orders. Christ gave his followers the ability to chose their path, Mohammed ordered his followers down a given route. The word of God invites us to follow him, the word of Mohammed insists adherents follow him.
Christianity is an invitation, Islam is a diktat.
In my opinion, based on the orders of Mohammed it would be difficult to be a ‘moderate’ Muslim because moderation was something that Mohammed did not decree.
I didn’t start this article with anything more in mind than commenting on the possible British involvement in the death of James Foley, but as usual when I am having a rant I get sidetracked, and for that I would usually apologise, but not today.
ANYONE who murders an unarmed, shackled man and then posts a video on the internet as a boast of his barbarity deserves nothing less than the same fate to befall him. Sadly that is unlikely to happen. However, reinstating the death penalty, rounding up his compatriots in this country and hanging the bastards may help concentrate his mind a little. It won’t happen of course, way too much political correctness in the world for that.
On April 20th 1968, much to the horror of politicians a government minister, Enoch Powell gave a speech which came to be known as the ‘Rivers of Blood’ speech. It was concerning immigration of ‘non-whites’ to the UK, and the implementation of the ‘Race Relations Act’:
In the hundreds upon hundreds of letters I received when I last spoke on this subject two or three months ago, there was one striking feature which was largely new and which I find ominous. All Members of Parliament are used to the typical anonymous correspondent; but what surprised and alarmed me was the high proportion of ordinary, decent, sensible people, writing a rational and often well-educated letter, who believed that they had to omit their address because it was dangerous to have committed themselves to paper to a Member of Parliament agreeing with the views I had expressed, and that they would risk penalties or reprisals if they were known to have done so. The sense of being a persecuted minority which is growing among ordinary English people in the areas of the country which are affected is something that those without direct experience can hardly imagine. (my emphasis)
You can read the whole speech here.
It seems old Enoch was onto something. Remember, this was written in 1968, 46 years ago the writing was already on the wall, and visible to those that looked for it. Although he was at that time concerned with Commonwealth immigrants he recognised the signs that others would enter the country and alter the lives of the British population.
Enoch Powell died in 1998, he was 85. He had lived long enough to see what he said would happen come to pass. The situation is far worse than it was in 1998, he must be turning in his grave looking at what’s going on now.
