“My political priorities, post-Brexit, have become very simple. The party that’s most willing and able to stand up to Islam will get my vote.”
That was a tweet from @meganne121 last week and she is not alone. There is enormous and growing public concern about Islam, and our politicians seem to have no idea.
Last year, a ComRes poll said that 56% of Britons believe Islam is incompatible with the British way of life. They’re right, it is. Note that the public’s concern is with Islam, not fundamentalist or extremist or radical or any kind of ‘ism’, but Islam. The public gets it, the politicians don’t. More recently, 47% of Brits said they wanted immigration from Muslim countries banned. This goes even further than Donald Trump. The people get it, the politicians don’t.
If UKIP wants to stand out and offer a real alternative, it can offer what nobody else will – law and order.
To oppose the horrors that accompany Islam and return the sovereignty of the British electorate (isn’t that why we left the EU?), we must restore law and order. The British majority must be heard again. The ordinary Brit who doesn’t fit in to any ‘victim’ category, but often pays the bills for those who do, are now the least important demographic in Britain, and they want a party that will change that. There must be a party to represent that 56%.
People increasingly understand that Islam is not just another religion, it is a full and complete system of life; it governs everything from political leadership to eating habits.
Across Britain, imams control little sharia ghettoes, a situation replicated across Europe. They care nothing for the laws of the country in which they live, and insist on self-policing. We have for decades allowed them to do this, and the result is what can be expected – we are accommodating and facilitating barbarism and undermining the authority of British law. What was the point in fighting the EU for our sovereignty only to hand it over to imams instead?
Across the world, the crimes committed in the name of Islam are innumerable. Moderate Muslims have never been able to stop these crimes, and nor will they. Not only is Islam behind the world’s only medieval theocracies, but crimes against girls, homosexuals, women, Christians and atheists are countless. On top of this, Islamic terror groups, whose cruelty knows no limits, slaughter innocents in every corner of the world.
Female genital mutilation, the grotesque removal of a girl’s clitoris for reasons that epitomise misogyny, is widespread in the UK. It is practiced nigh-on exclusively by Muslim communities and remains completely unpunished despite being a criminal offence since 1985. Further crimes include honour violence, forced marriage and child marriage; all of which are widespread and carrying on with relative impunity.
There are solutions to these problems, all that is lacking is the courage to put these solutions to the electorate. The sharia councils in this country should be criminalized. There is nothing in law that allows for the setting up of religious tribunals to usurp and undermine the law. Sharia law has been declared incompatible with human rights by both the House of Lords (judicial) and the European Court of Human Rights. This is more than enough reason to close them down, by force if necessary. These places are run by jihadis whose ultimate aim is to expand the cruelty of sharia and increase Islamic control. Many openly state this, yet no politician will take them on.
If we are serious about FGM, and we should be, then a register of female children born to women who have been mutilated should be kept, and that child subject to mandatory health-checks until the age of 18. Any mutilation should be punished with the full force of the law, and punishment for non-British citizens must include deportation. Sending this powerful message is the only way we can stop this. Being deported is the only threat that will work.
Cases of inciting violence, a criminal offence, have been recorded by journalists on numerous occasions in mosques in Britain, yet nothing has been done. Preaching violence against women, Jews or homosexuals, is a crime, yet major British mosques teach congregants to “kill” gays without a murmur of protest. Why aren’t we going in to these mosques, enforcing the law, deporting non-British imams, or jailing British ones? Is the law dead? Is it now irrelevant?
Gangs of Muslim men (not Asian, Muslim) have been raping and torturing girls all over this country for decades, and still are. I have known girls and women report Muslim rape gangs to police with absolutely no response, not even an initial investigation. These rape victims are simply ignored. We cannot allow this to continue. As such, we must put in place a system of reporting and accountability that holds senior police officers to account; they must answer to the British people as to why are not upholding the law, and their jobs must be the price they pay for not doing so.
To ensure the long-term safety of the British people and their culture, we must stop immigration from Muslim societies. Even the most moderate of Muslim-majority countries are immersed in serious human rights abuses. Even the best Islam has to offer is a crime in the civilized world, and many Muslims have no intention of being “educated” by Westerners to change. Despite this, despite our complete inability to police the crimes that accompany Muslim immigration (including mass rape of non-Muslim women and girls) we continue to keep the borders open for more. This must stop.
We should end foreign aid (except in emergencies) and use those resources to restore the authority of the law in Britain. If those breaching immigration laws won’t return to their native lands, they should be held in detention until they do. We have got to get tough and we have to do it soon. We will take no orders from unelected international bodies but work with allies against the global threat of sharia.
None of this is controversial, it is merely the imposition of the law as determined by the British majority. It is merely treating Muslims like everyone else and holding them to the same standards.
All non-Britons convicted of a violent crime (or involved in terrorism) should be deported from this country, because the British people must come first. It is the most important moral and democratic duty of those who seek our vote. Its time for a political party to realize this, and I think that party should be UKIP.
A couple of years ago, I submitted an application to UKIP’s NEC to form an internal campaign group ‘UKIP Against Sharia’ with the aim of lobbying the top of the party, which rarely seems to hear, to speak out about sharia and have the courage to really confront it. This application was rejected with no explanation offered. Now I intend to submit it again, and I am writing this to ask people to join me. We must demand to be heard. Its not good enough to make reference to “Islamist radicalism”, we must call it what it is and tell the public exactly how we will deal with it. We must not suck up to the imams like all the rest, we must oppose them instead. We must not pussyfoot around FGM and child marriage but confront them and prevent them.
(If you do not belong to a party, but want to see action taken about Islam, then join UKIP and help me fight this. I will not stop until we succeed).
No other party can do this but UKIP. The others have already sold their souls. Labour won’t do it because it relies on the Muslim vote. The Tories are no better; they’ve been in Government (albeit most of the time in a coalition) for some years now, and yet nothing whatsoever has changed.
If UKIP won’t step up and take this on, then someone truly nasty could. There are numerous (actual) racists, fascists, anti-Semites, misogynists out there just waiting to use Islam as the excuse to turn back the clock on all the progress the West has made. We must find the place between the ugliness of Islam and the ugliness of those who will rise if decent people are forced in to silence.
These problems are not going to go away, they will only get worse unless firm and unapologetic action is taken. If UKIP won’t do this, someone will, and UKIP could simply fade away; seen as out of touch and too afraid to challenge the orthodoxy of the Left-dominated media, it could become irrelevant. For the sake of the country we love, we shouldn’t allow this to happen.
