The prospect for freedom of religion and freedom of speech in Britain if Muslim activists predominate in population and force Islam as both a religion and a state in the future is outlined and discussed. The Islamic way of life is prescribed specifically and strictly in the contents of the Quran and the Hadith. Various punishments for disagreeing with these prescriptions are listed, with attribution to the sources of Islamic religious authority. The conclusion is that the threat of Islam as a dominant trend in Britain is a reality. We have just 25 years to save our ancient culture and identity vanishing forever under repression and superstition that prevail in Islamic states the world over.
Islam is more than a religion; It is a comprehensive way of life. The Quran (believed by Muslims to be God's word), and the Hadith (Mohammed's sayings as recorded by Al Bukhari), prescribe numerous regulations governing every aspect of the social, political, economical, as well as religious life. The belief that "Islam is a religion and a state" is an integral part of the Islamic religion.
The belief that 'Islam is a religion and a state' is an integral part of the Islamic religion.Our traditional rights of free speech and freedom from such tyrannical practices as arbitrary arrest and torture were won by generations of our ancestors with their own blood. The separation of Church and State, and the right to individual choice in religious matters which follows has also been the British way for hundreds of years.
What would happen to this freedom in an Islamic state? Would the citizens be granted the right to choose the religion they want, or would they be forced into Islam according to the Quranic verse: "If any one desires a religion other than Islam, never will it be accepted of him, and in the hereafter he will be in the ranks of those who have lost." (Surah 3:85). How about the right of a Muslim to change his own religion? Would he be given this right or would he be punished according to the apostasy rule which states that such a person should be punished by death?
Mohammed said "Whoever changes his religion, kill him." Al Bukhari Vol. 9:57Resisting Islam: punished by death, crucifixion or the cutting off of the hands and feet (Surah 5:33).
Do Muslim activists want us to have the same rights granted to the citizens of an Islamic country such as Saudi Arabia, where women are not allowed to drive an automobile and no one can worship openly according to any religion other than Islam? Do they want us to be ruled by a ruler such as Khomeini, who issued an order to murder a writer, Salman Rushdie, just because he dared to criticize Islam?
Even in a moderate Islamic state such as Egypt, Christians have to obtain a presidential decree to be able to build a church, or even to repair a toilet in a church. They face discrimination in all aspects of their lives, including education, employment and promotions. Despite the encroachments of the EU, our present system in the UK still gives us the theoretical right to rule ourselves, to write or rewrite the laws that govern our lives, to decide the amount of taxes to be collected from us and how it will be spent.
One important principle in this great system is the separation of church and state. Islam, however, is built on an opposing concept, for "Islam is a religion and a state." According to Islam, the Quran is the principal source of legislation: "We have sent down to thee the book in truth, that you might judge men as guided by God." (Surah 4:105). If the Quran is the law, what are some of the rules and regulations that will be imposed? Here are just a few examples:· Stealing: punished by hand amputation (Surah 5:38) · Adultery: punished by public flogging (Surah 24:2) · Drinking : punished by 40 or 80 lashes (Al Bukhari 8:770) · Resisting Islam : punished by death, crucifixion or the cutting off of the hands and feet (Surah 5:33)Mohammed says that a Muslim may not be killed if he kills a non-Muslim. Prisons in Muslim countries are known to be centres of torture rather than rehabilitation.
And women are oppressed second class citizens. How could Islam be expected to treat women fairly when: It teaches that men are superior to women (Surah 2:228) · It gives men double the share of the women in inheritance? (Surah 4:11) · It gives the man double the value of a woman's witness in court? (Surah 2:282) · Would Islam treat non-Muslims fairly when: · The Quran calls on Muslims not to befriend Jews or Christians? (Surah 9:30) · The Quran imposes "Jizya" (tribute tax) on Christians and Jews that will be collected only from them and not from Muslims? (Surah 9:29)
Mohammed says that a Muslim may not be killed if he kills a non- Muslim. "No Muslim should be killed for killing a kafir (infidel or non- Muslim). "Al Bukhari Vol. 9:50
Islam is the fastest growing religion in Britain. From none fifty years ago, the number of followers of Islam in the UK is now approaching three million. It is already likely that more Muslims attend mosques in the UK than native Britons go to church on Sundays. More and more Muslims speak openly of the day when Britain is turned Islamic as a result of immigration, the high Muslim birthrate and conversions. Britain then will be labelled an " Islamic country ", ruled by the "Quran" and the "Hadith" or what Muslims call Sharia (The Islamic code of ethics).
The threat of Islam is real. More so than Communism ever was, because with Islam, Muslim activists are willing to kill and to die for the cause of spreading their religion. This is called "Jihad," a sacred duty for all Muslims to perform. In an Islamic Britain, pre-Islamic religion, culture and traditions would be swept aside. Ancient non-Islamic holy places would be converted into mosques or destroyed. Statues and representations of living things would be banished (the very first step on this road was taken in Oldham in 2000 when the council removed dozens of traffic bollards because they had mouldings of the town's owl mascot on them and so were liable to 'offend' Muslims. Vigorous local complaints got the decision reversed - for now). Women would be forced to wear veils (even today, non-Muslim women in Muslim areas of our towns are abused, spat at and jostled for wearing 'revealing' fashion clothes). Alcohol would be banned and pubs forced to close (dozens of pubs were attacked, even firebombed, during the summer's riots in towns with large Muslim populations).
As you can see from the points above, it's already happening. There is no appeasing this religion or its fanatical followers, who believe that they can turn Britain into an Islamic Republic by 2025. It may take a few years longer than that, but that is the inevitable end result of present trends and the policies of the old political parties. Afghanistan was once a centre of Buddhism and peace, now it's an Islamic desert ruled by the Taliban. There are those who are working to bring about the same kind of transformation in Britain. Only the British people, and the British National Party, stand in their way.
It's up to us.
It's up to you!
