Hmm. I don’t know what to think of this. I was surprised at how much I agreed with. I don’t agree with some of things he suggests towards the end, such as voluntary repatriation, but a lot of the stuff he says is fairly sensible, particularly with regards to the annoying, dangerous, cultural relativism of the left…

As I said, many of those Muslims in Europe would like to implement Shariah Law in our judicial systems. As you know, Shariah law covers all areas of life, from religion, hygiene and dietary laws, to dress code, family and social life and from finance and politics to the unity of Islam with the state. For some crimes, horrific, barbaric punishments are prescribed, such as beheading and the chopping off of opposite limbs. In Shariah Courts no woman may become judge. Shariah Law does not recognize free speech and freedom of religion. Polygamy and killing an apostate are ‘virtues’, but the consumption of alcohol is a crime. This is the sick Shariah Law in a nutshell, and it is unbelievable and unacceptable that the cultural relativists allow Shariah banks, Shariah mortgages, Shariah schools and unofficial — and in Britain even official — Shariah tribunals in Europe.

Ladies and gentlemen, these are of course shocking facts, figures and statements. However, they are not particularly surprising to anybody who has some knowledge of the Koran and knows who Muhammad was.

In this connection, ladies and gentlemen, allow me to very briefly discuss the essence of Islam, and let me come straight to the point: Islam is not so much a religion as, first and foremost, an ideology; to be precise, like communism and fascism, a political, totalitarian ideology, with worldwide aspirations.

Of course, there are many moderate Muslims. However, there is no such a thing as a moderate Islam. Islam’s heart lies in the Koran. The Koran is an evil book that calls for violence, murder, terrorism, war and submission. The Koran describes Jews as monkeys and pigs. The Koran calls upon Muslims to kill the Kaffirs, the non-Muslims.

The problem is that the injunctions in the Koran are not restricted to time or place. Rather, they apply to all Muslims, in any period. Another problem is that Muslims also regard the Koran as the word of Allah. Which means that the Koran is immune from criticism.

Apart from the Koran, there is also the life of Muhammad, who fought in dozens of wars and was in the habit of decapitating Jews with his own sword. The problem here is that, to Muslims, Muhammad is ‘the perfect man’, whose life is the model to follow.

This is why Jihadists slaughtered innocent people in Washington, New York, Madrid, Amsterdam, London and Mumbai.

Now is clear why Winston Churchill, in his book ‘The Second World War’, for which he received the Nobel Prize in Literature, compared the Koran to Adolf Hitler’s ‘Mein Kampf’. Now is clear why the famous Swiss theologian, Karl Barth, in 1936 said, and I quote, “It is impossible to understand national socialism unless we see it in fact as a new Islam, its myth as a new Allah, and Hitler as this new Allah’s prophet.” Now is clear why Heinrich Himmler was an admirer of Islam. And now is clear why President Obama, who last week, in Cairo, said that Islam has a tradition of tolerance, should be sent back to school.

Just like communism, fascism and nazism, Islam is a threat to everything we stand for. It is a threat to democracy, to the constitutional state, to equality for men and women, to freedom and civilisation. Wherever you look in the world, the more Islam you see, the less freedom you see. Islam is a threat to the Europe of Bach and Michelangelo, Shakespeare and Socrates, Voltaire and Galileo.

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.
