Islam in England: Jeremy Corbyn, Or, Could Things In the U.K. Become Even Worse? By Hugh Fitzgerald.
As we all know, Theresa May has been a disaster on the subject of Islam. She has insisted that the Islamic State’s “actions have absolutely no basis in anything written in the Quran.” She claims that the massacres in Paris in November 2015 had “nothing to do with Islam.” She and her associates have, as Robert Spencer has noted, “hounded, stigmatized, and demonized foes of jihad terror, falsely claiming that they represent a “far-right” equivalent to jihad terrorists, while appeasing and accommodating Muslim groups in Britain, many of which were by no stretch of the imagination “moderate,” and allowing numerous jihad preachers to operate without hindrance. Among the preachers she has admitted is Syed Muzaffar Shah Qadri, whose preaching of hatred and jihad violence was so hardline that he was banned from preaching in Pakistan, but the UK Home Office welcomed him into Britain.” And, of course, Robert Spencer continues to be blocked, as a “far-right islamophobe,” from even entering the U.K.
So one wonders if Jeremy Corbyn could possibly be worse? The answer, I’m afraid, is yes.
Well-known for his anti-Israel views, in 2014 Corbyn attended a wreath-laying ceremony at a cemetery in Tunisia honoring one of the terrorists who masterminded the 1972 Munich massacre. …
The anti-Israel animus throughout the Labour Party, which has become indistinguishable from antisemitism, led to an investigation and a report on antisemitism in the party by one Shami Chakrabarti. When the report was submitted, Jeremy Corbyn made a “defense” of non-Israeli Jews, in which he managed to place Israel on the same moral level as the Islamic State: “Our Jewish friends are no more responsible for the actions of Israel or the Netanyahu government than our Muslim friends are for those of various self-styled Islamic states or organisations.” …
Corbyn blame[s] British intervention in wars overseas for Muslim terror attacks, including most obviously, Salman Abedi’s attack in Manchester. …
Jeremy Corbyn should be asked what foreign policy, of what country, explains the killing of those Copts traveling to a monastery, or those Filipino farmers and traders and policemen cut down in Mindanao, or those 80 Afghans blown up in Kabul, or those Thai teachers — nearly 200 so far — murdered in the three southernmost provinces of Thailand by Muslim insurgents.
And if he can’t come up with a convincing explanation that covers all three examples of Muslim attacks on Infidels, perhaps he will at long last find the time to read, and study, the Qur’an, and hadith, and sira, in order to discover what might convincingly explain, not only those three examples of anti-Infidel Jihad, in Egypt, the Philippines, and Thailand, but also what has been going on in Europe.
Why is it only Muslim migrants, and not the Hindus, not the Chinese, not the Bolivian Indians, not sub-Saharan African Christians, not Buddhists from Vietnam, who seem uniquely unable to integrate into European societies?
And why is it that, no matter what European country Muslims settle in, whether that country be run by Conservatives (the U.K.) or Socialists (France), whether that country offers a cornucopia of welfare benefits (Sweden) or a relative paucity of them (like Spain), whether that country had a colonial connection to Muslim lands, as France did with Algeria, or none at all, like Denmark, the Muslim migrants in Europe everywhere exhibit the same pathologies, that is, a widespread failure to integrate into the larger society, and instead of gratitude, hostility to their hosts, and they continue to exhibit much higher levels both of unemployment (and of receipt of welfare benefits of every kind), and of criminality, than do either the indigenous non-Muslims or non-Muslim immigrants? Might the Qur’an, that inculcates hostility, even murderous hostility, to Infidels, get in the way of integrating into societies whose laws and customs Muslims are taught to despise?
These questions urgently need to be answered by all of our opinion-forming, PC ruling class.
