I feel I should say something… but what can we say at this moment?
Well, I guess first, how sorry we are for all those who are suffering loss or injuries following these attacks.
Having said that, there are people who are suffering loss or injuries all over Britain, and the globe, who are just as hurting and just as much in need of our sympathies as these people. The fact that this is in our capital and the way it unfolded live on TV and on the internet and the fact that there are so many fatalities and injuries all from one event magnifies the shock and pain we feel collectively. Do remember the others too.
We are in fact very fortunate that so far these Islamist killers, have been so poor at killing and injuring. Do not get me wrong… the numbers killed and injured are horrific. But had this happened where there were not armed police on hand, but numbers could have been much higher.
Islam, a problem.
It was encouraging to hear that people are now beginning to change the view that, “We can not say anything bad about Islam.” And we are now beginning to hear people saying that there is a problem that Islam has and that, that needs to be addressed.
Theresa May in her first speech about the London Bridge attacks said,
“to be frank – far too much tolerance of extremism in our country.”
“They are bound together by the single evil ideology of Islamist extremism that preaches hatred, sows division and promotes sectarianism. It is an ideology that claims our Western values of freedom, democracy and human rights are incompatible with the religion of Islam. It is an ideology that is a perversion of Islam and a perversion of the truth.”
[It is through worrying that she seems to be turning to regulate the internet, and not the UK borders, immigration policy or the mosques that spread radical Islamic hate. But admitting the root of the problem is a start.]
[I am not calling for anyone to attack Muslims or to take any action personally against any individual.]
It is encouraging to hear that such thoughts are now being spoken. Until now, political correctness has made such sentiment almost impossible to talk about. But just a few days after Manchester and the sentiment that we must just ‘carry on as before’… we find that carrying on as before, just will not work.
The PC brigade
LBC, (UK Radio Station) has been daring to talk about Islam as a… I can not remember the exact word, but it meant something like a militant religion or a religion that advances by force.
I have no doubt, that a very great many Muslims are very nice people, but we can not pretend that there is not a VERY BIG problem within the teachings of the Koran and the teaching of the mosques, even in Britan.
Maybe now the PC brigade will let us talk honestly without being labelled HATE mongers, or purveyors of hate speech or the like.
We do not hate Muslims, but we do not like the teaching of Islam.
And it is not just a few odd radical Islamists. UK police are following something like 3,000-5,000 people they believe to be a risk and can identify over 23,000 radical Islamist in the UK, and some experts are suggesting the number should be much higher.
Whole Islamic countries have horrific, Islam inspired, treatment of women and people of other faiths.
Wake up Britain, (Europ and other countries that are allowing mass-Islamic immigration), there is a big problem within Islam. If you allow thousands or millions of Muslims into your country, you are very likely to end up with hundreds or thousands of radical Islamists.
[Some time we must talk about the fact that the so-called, “radical Islam, or Islamist, are actually more true to the teaching of the Koran than are the moderate or peaceful Muslims, and the fact that ‘Islam’ should be translated ‘submission’, not ‘peace’.]
