Theresa May thinks that Islam is compatible with Human Rights – stated in her speech following the terrorist attack at London Bridge and Borough Market.  Read the transcript.

She criticises those who know they are incompatible, rejecting the clear evidence.  An important purpose of UKIP, beyond Brexit, is to force politicians to stop deceiving us regarding Islam.  Thus we must put in the effort to read the source material and collate the evidence.  Everyone in UKIP should read at least chapter 9 of the Koran, understand the terms “abrogation” and “taqiyya”, and watch the videos and read the writings of scholars such as Robert Spencer, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, and Douglas Murray.

Source documents are the Koran, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), and the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR).  The Declaration and the Convention have a similar core set of Articles, however the ECHR addresses an apparent anomaly in the UDHR.  The ECHR has numerous Articles relating to the functioning of the European Court of Human Rights, which are irrelevant for us when we have our own Bill of Rights.  

The thirty clauses of the UDHR do embody what we should aspire to, for the whole world.  Below are examples where the Koran is incompatible with it.  This is not a complete list, however it does show the severity of the problem and that Theresa May is utterly mistaken.

UDHR Article 1 states that we should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.  Islam, when it can, subjugates non-believers as second class citizens, who exist in a state of Dhimmitude and pay the Jizya tax as a sign of inferiority.   Koran 9:29.

Article 2 states that everyone is entitled to these rights irrespective of who they are.  Under Islam women are regarded as the property of men, either her father or husband.  The husband determines what she does, and how many children she has.  Koran 2:223.

Article 3.  “Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.”  Not in Islam.  Koran 9:5.

Article 4 opposes slavery.  Koran 4:24 allows a Muslim man to keep female captives as sex slaves.  ISIS does so.  Grooming gangs own girls by hooking them on drink and drugs.

Article 5 disallows cruel and inhuman punishment.  Koran 5:33 mandates cutting off hands and feet on opposite sides.

Article 6:  “Everyone has the right to recognition everywhere as a person before the law.”  Under Sharia Law the testimony of women is half that of a man, with grave miscarriages of justice – a rapist can accuse his victim of seducing him, and he is let off while she may be stoned to death for adultery.

Article 7 states that all are equal before the law.  Sharia Law: the inheritance of a woman is half that of a man.  Koran 4:11  Sharia Councils in the UK have de facto jurisdiction regarding family matters and inheritance, in contravention of Human Rights. They must be abolished.

Article 16: marriage cannot be coercive.  In Muslim community there can be huge pressure to marry.  Marriage between first cousins is explicitly allowed, Koran 33:50, producing thirteen times the cases of recessive genetic disorders compared to the non-Muslim population.  Islam seriously harms Muslims themselves.  UKIP must campaign against this – Marriage between first cousins must be outlawed.

Article 18 states that there must be freedom of religion, and freedom to change religion.  Islam is incompatible, there is the death penalty for apostasy, Koran 4:89, Koran 9:11-12, etc..  A Saudi citizen has been sentenced to death for ripping up the Koran.

Article 19 states that we must have freedom of opinion, and freedom to express it.  Islam abjures freedom, witness the fatwa against Salman Rushdie.  Attacks on cartoonists have de facto created the death penalty for blasphemy.  The UK has prevented the scholar Robert Spencer from entering, breaching this Article.

There are numerous incompatibilities between Islam and Human Rights.  These few examples are sufficient to prove that politicians such as Theresa May are mistaken.  She must know this.  Why the attempt to deceive us?  We are not stupid!

The UDHR has a flaw – it tacitly assumes all Articles are of equal weight.  However the right to freedom of religion is incompatible with other rights, where that religion is Islam.

ECHR Article 9 recognises the problem:

“Freedom of thought, conscience and religion

  1. Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief, in worship, teaching, practice and observance.
  2. Freedom to manifest one’s religion or beliefs shall be subject only to such limitations as are prescribed by law and are necessary in a democratic society in the interests of public safety, for the protection of public order, health or morals, or for the protection of the rights and freedoms of others.”

Islam is incompatible with democratic societies – laws of Allah are regarded as superior to man-made laws.  Islam is contrary to public safety – killing infidels is mandated in the Koran.  It contravenes public order – Muslims carrying placards inciting murder are not arrested.  Islam is contrary to health – marriage between first cousins is allowed in the Koran.  Islam is contrary to morals – it is immoral to slit the throat of an animal without pre-stunning.  Islam will utterly destroy our rights and freedoms when it can do so, in the latter half of this century if demographic trends continue.

Translations of the Koran into English are freely available online.   Read verses in the context of the verses around them.  All should understand Islam.  There is no excuse not to – the Koran is freely available, as are the websites and videos of established scholars.  Tackling Islam is the next challenge.

If UKIP is to have a meaningful future beyond Brexit  it cannot behave as other parties do.  It must be honest, decent, and bold.  The freedoms we have inherited are easily lost.  It is our duty to pass these on to the next generation.  We cannot abandon them into a condition of Dhimmitude.
