A strange story from the Daily Mail — not the most reliable, trustworthy, or likeable of newspapers, it must be said; in fact, I would say it’s a disgusting hate-mongering festering pile of lazy journalism and racism… — about the latest plans of Islamic extremists in the UK.
Muslim hate fanatics plan to take over Britain by having more babies and forcing a population explosion, it has been revealed. The swollen Muslim population would be enough to conquer Britain from inside, they claim.
Fanatics told a meeting of young Muslims on the anniversary of the 9/11 atrocity, that it would then be easy to impose Sharia law on the population, the Sun newspaper reported.
Speaking at a meeting in London, Anjem Choudary, right-hand man of exiled preacher Omar Bakri Mohammed, said: “It may be by pure conversion that Britain will become an Islamic state. We may never need to conquer it from the outside.” He added: “We do not integrate into Christianity. We will ensure that one day you will integrate into the Sharia Islamic law.”
His comments were made as voice of hate Bakri warned that the next 9/11 would take place in the UK.
I don’t think Islam is a very nice religion, and nor do I think Christianity and Judaism are; extremism isn’t so much an extreme view as just simply following what it actually says in the Holy Texts which constantly preach violence and oppression. People go on about “religious extremism” as though that were a perversion of a perfectly alright religion in the first place. It is not. Religion is foul and odious, more so because we have been raised to believe that it is not that way; that to call someone a “person of faith” is to axiomatically infer a compliment; that to be religious is to be moral. It is not.
That said, there are many perfectly decent Muslims and Christians and Jews, and whatever other faith you can name will likely have likeable adherents. And I feel sorry for the more moderate Muslims who will be hurt by this type of faith-war-mongering. I despise mobs in general who go baying after blood, their sweat and stench and ignorance filling the air, and I do despise these fanatics; I would not be surprised, though, if there were some kind of backlash against them — the Islamic British community — soon. And that will be a bad day.
Religion poisons everything, to borrow the refrain that runs through Christopher Hitchens’ excellent, god Is Not Great.
