ST GEORGE PARADE CANCELLED DUE TO FEAR OF BRITISH MUSLIMS RIOTING

A St George's Day parade through the Bradford area of Britain which was previously rocked by riots has been cancelled due to police fears for the health and safety of the participants.

The parade which ironically celebrates St George's defeat of a dragon and England's cultural heritage was expected to traverse through Bradford which is home to a large Pakistani muslim community. The parade was due to attract more than 10,000 people.

From Dailymail: "The Rev Tony Tooby, chairman of governors at St Philips primary school, which was due to take part, said: "We wanted the route to include where some of the riots had taken place to educate our young people.

"The police and council just kept telling us that the reason for their objection was 'health and safety'. They proposed another route which was ridiculously short. The march would have been over before it began.

"Unfortunately, there's a fear that someone may have used it to cause violence.

Local Tory MP Philip Davies said: "This was a prime opportunity to promote integration in a celebration of being British. "The police and council, whether it's through political correctness or whatever, have failed miserably. It's frankly pathetic."


The Bradford riots occurred in 2001 just a few months prior to the September 11th attacks on the World Trade Center --and prior to the Western world's realization that it was the target of Islamic jihad.

The riots were sparked by the stabbing of a local "Asian youth" by National Front supporters. They ended with more than 300 police injured and 297 people arrested. The riot was estimated to have involved

ISLAM WILL VERY SOON CONQUER ROME

A Palestinian MP representing Hamas declared in a televised message that Islam will "very soon" conquer Rome, spread throughout Europe and finally take over the Americas.

Yunis Al-Astal, a Muslim cleric, said in an April 11 broadcast on Hamas' Al-Aqsa TV,
"Very soon, Allah willing, Rome will be conquered, just like Constantinople was, as was prophesized by our Prophet Muhammad.

"Today, Rome is the capital of the Catholics, or the Crusader capital, which has declared its hostility to Islam, and has planted the brothers of apes and pigs in Palestine in order to prevent the reawakening of Islam. This capital of theirs will be an advanced post for the Islamic conquests, which will spread through Europe in its entirety, and then will turn to the two Americas, and even Eastern Europe.

"I believe that our children or our grandchildren will inherit our jihad (holy war) and our sacrifices, and Allah willing, the commanders of the conquest will come from among them," he said. "Today, we instill these good tidings in their souls, and by means of the mosques and the Quran books, and the history of our prophets, his companions, and the great leaders, we prepare them for the mission of saving humanity from the hellfire on the brink of which they stand."

A segment of the address was taped and translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute, or MEMRI.

MUSLIM SEX OFFENDERS IN THE U.K. MAY BE EXEMPT FROM PRISON REHABILITATION PROGRAMS

Muslim sex offenders may be able to opt out of prison treatment programs in the U.K. because they claim it is against their religion.

From
Thisislondon: "Rapists, paedophiles and other dangerous sex attackers are expected to discuss their crimes with others during jail sessions designed to stop them reoffending."

"Now the Prison Service's Muslim advisor, Ahtsham Ali, has said there is a "legitimate Islamic position" that criminals should not discuss their crimes with other people.

"An "urgent review" has been ordered, and Muslims could be allowed to opt out of this part of the treatment - despite completing a full programme often being a condition of release.

"The move has already sparked protests. Shadow Justice Secretary, Nick Herbert said: "It is one thing to make a dispensation for a prisoner's faith when it comes to prayer and diet, but if a prisoner is unwilling to take part in rehabilitation they should be treated no differently to others – which may mean spending longer in custody. "There can be no religious discrimination when it comes to deciding the appropriate and safe time to release a prisoner."

"Some 1,000 sex offenders underwent the treatment programme last year, in 26 prisons. Places are

UN REPORT CALLS FOR DISESTABLISHMENT OF THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND DUE TO LACK OF BELIEVERS AND OFFENSE TO MUSLIMS

"The divisibility of the Church is the cardinal document of Anglicanism, and its most fundamental heresy." Abbott Chapman (20th cent)

According to a recent study conducted by the U.N., two-thirds of British citizenry claim no religious affiliation. The 23-page report by a special rapporteur of the U.N. claims that the 2001 census which found that nearly 72 per cent of the population is Christian is no longer accurate.

Excerpts from
TIMESONLINE: "The report calls for the disestablishment of the Church of England. It says that the role and privileges of the Church do not reflect “the religious demography of the country and the rising proportion of other Christian denominations”.

"The report says that there is an “overall respect for human rights and their value” but it gives warning of discrimination against Muslims.

"Citing research that 80 per cent of Muslims in Britain feel that they have been discriminated against, the report singles out the Terrorism Act 2000 for particular criticism. Under the Act police in some areas can stop and search people without having to show reasonable suspicion.

The report’s author also criticises terms in the Terrorism Act 2006 for being “overly broad and vaguely worded”.

Certainly, if a church is founded upon the notion that Christ's Church can be divided, then this same church therefore becomes subject to division, disestablishment and even elimination itself. The curse of the Reformation may well be the Islamization of Britain.

"And so the stage is set for the chastisement which the prophecies say will be very severe for England." Catholic Prophesy, Yves Dupont.

DUTCH CATHOLICS RENAME LENT "RAMADAN" TO APPEAL TO MUSLIMS

This is a liberal's version of evangelization--to change the Church to conform to the world. Diabolical concepts such as relativism and religious indifferentism are proof that the smoke of Satan has indeed entered the sanctuaries of the Church. Liberal Catholicism has all but destroyed the Church in an attempt to Protestantize it--which is a pew-emptying failure. Now they hope to convert the Muslims by Islamizing Catholicism. From the Dutch bishop who advocated calling God "Allah", to the renaming of lent. What's next? Liberals may seek to rename the Bible "The Koran"-- after all, in their eyes it's all the word of God or should I say-- the word of Allah. The irony is that such relativism and "tolerance" lead only to one's own eventual obliteration and demise. Further, such weakness makes conversion from Islam to Christianity futile--since there is nothing to convert from or to.

From
Telegraph.co.uk: "Dutch Catholics have re-branded the Lent fast as the "Christian Ramadan" in an attempt to appeal to young people who are more likely to know about Islam than Christianity.

THE FIRST MUSLIM-BORN HEAD OF STATE MAY BE IN AMERICA--NOT EUROPE

Great mystery surrounds Barack Hussein Obama's religious beliefs and upbringing. I do not know what is worse --that he may be a Muslim apostate or that he could turn out to be a professing Muslim. While the Islamization threat is much more apparent in Europe due to immigration and dismal birth rates, the average American feels much more insulated and seemingly has the luxury of ignoring the reality of the danger that Islam poses to the entire Western world (despite 9-11). So many long to believe that the problem lies with the radical elements in Islam rather than with the religion itself. This ignorance could make America just as vulnerable to Muslim domination as Europe.

From Mr Thomas Landon via Brussels Journal: "If I had been asked two months ago “Which Western country runs the greatest risk of electing a Muslim-born leader and how soon do you think this is going to happen?” I would have bet on the Netherlands somewhere in the next decade. Today, it looks as if the first Western country with a Muslim-born leader might very well be the United States next year, when President Barack Hussein Obama enters the Oval Office."

"Perhaps Mr. Obama strikes the Europeans as the “most European candidate” because he was born a Muslim. If America can have a Muslim-born leader, why not Europe, many Europeans will ask. They know that the latter is “unavoidable” (to use the archbishop of Canterbury’s words). In America, Mr. Obama’s Muslim family background (unlike Mr. Romney’s Mormonism) is a non-issue because he attends a Christian church. Nevertheless, being born from a Muslim father, raised by a Muslim stepfather, having been enrolled at Read More...

ANGLICAN ARCHBISHOP: SHARIA LAW INEVITABLE


This is where the loss of faith and apostasy has led the West-- to capitulation by so called Christians to the enemy of Jesus Christ. False charity, false ecumenism, and false Christianity bring about weak men who collude with Satan to accomplish the ruin of civilization and ultimately Christianity.

As a civilization we are reaping the fruit of the Reformation which was a rejection of authority and and an embrace of relativism and indifference to truth. Every man now lives by his own contrived truth--no
one religion possesses truth, and there is no unified voice to stand for truth and against the tyranny of secularism and Islam. Instead there are ineffective and self-deprecating leaders like Rowan Williams who embrace, celebrate and are even willing to adopt the beliefs of those that seek the destruction of their very nation and church (and ironically would delight in beheading Williams and any homosexual clergy). When the Bride of Christ is divorced and the "life" which Christ promised to those who consume His flesh is absent-- then Sharia law is an inevitability. And the stench of weakness, capitulation and appeasement will only incite further demands from Islam in its pursuit of domination. (Thanks to Roger in New Zealand)

From the
BBC: "The Archbishop of Canterbury says the adoption of certain aspects of Sharia law in the UK "seems unavoidable".

"Dr Rowan Williams told Radio 4's World at One that the UK has to "face up to the fact" that some of its citizens do not relate to the British legal system.

"Dr Williams argues that adopting parts of Islamic Sharia law would help maintain social cohesion."

Social cohesion? Rather than seek social cohesion and transform our beliefs and civilization to Islam we should seek the conversion of Islam to Christianity. Read More...

THE LAUNCH OF A UNITED EUROPEAN PATRIOTIC PARTY BASED ON CHRISTIAN TRADITIONS TO FIGHT ISLAMIZATION


Some good news from the Eurabian front-- a few exceptionally astute politicians have identified the need to unify in order to defend their respective nations, to reclaim their Christian identity and to resist all that seeks the destruction of Western Civilization. Now if only the secular media would refrain from identifying all those who hold such ideas as "far right-wing". With God's mercy may the defenders of Europe prevail over those who seek its destruction.

EXCERPTS FROM
DEUTSCHE WELLE: "Leaders of right-wing nationalist parties from four EU member states have announced plans to create a European "patriotic" party that would protect the continent against immigration, "Islamization" and globalization.

"The heads of Austria's Freedom Party, France's Nationalist Front, the Bulgarian Attaca party and Belgium's Vlaams Belang on Friday, Jan. 25, told journalists in Vienna that they had agreed to set up a new party in order to defend Europe from numerous challenges that it faces today.

"We say: patriots of all the countries of Europe, unite," Freedom Party leader Heinz-Christian Strache said at the news conference, also attended by French right-winger Jean-Marie le Pen, among others. "Because only together will we solve our problems."

"Warning about the dangers that immigration and "Islamization" pose for Europe, the

DANISH MUSLIM PARTY SAYS DENMARK WILL BE THE FIRST MUSLIM NATION IN EUROPE

A website claiming to be the Danish Muslim Party (DAMP) has published a "press release" in English and Danish, saying that Denmark will be the first Muslim nation in Europe.

The website also states as follows:

"[W]e can assure you that everything will be better in muslim Denmark: No drugs, no crime, peace, and humanity- instead of drug culture, immorality, possibly human rights crimes and violence which we have now."

"Every immigrant or muslim in danish jails should be released from prisons, because it is possible that there has been plotting or framing or provocation towards them - and all cases should be investigated again carefully."

"Muslim party will be biggest party of Denmark - and it may be soon. First day after Turkey becomes EU member country - about one million 20-50 year old Muslims [may] move to Denmark, and after that Denmark [may] be a muslim country. Be ready!"

"Danish Muslim party's only agenda

BECOMING A DHIMMI NATION--AUSTRIAN BIRTH RATE IN DEATH SPIRAL


As
Austria muzzles politicians who speak the truth about the growing Islamization of Europe, the recent statistics on the Austrian birth rate do not lie. With a birth rate of 1.3 births per woman in 2006, Austria was previously thought to be on the brink of the death spiral but officials are now reporting a continued decline in the birth rate for 2007.

There were 69,245 births in Austria during the first eleven months of 2007--which represents a 2.4 per cent drop from the prior year (or 1,674 fewer births).

Top that off with the fact that 38 percent of all births from December, 2006 through November, 2007 were to unwed mothers, up from 37.2 percent from the prior year.

By the way --Austrian politician Susanne Winter is now under guard due to a death threat against her by the "European Al Qaeda". It seems Islamization may be fine for the percentage of the populace who the State supports in a hedonistic, pill-popping, serial shack-up lifestyle--just don't talk about the price that will eventually be paid.

AUSTRIAN POLITICIAN FACES JAIL TIME FOR ANTI-ISLAMIC SPEECH

An Austrian politician's comments about the prophet Mohammed and Islam may land her in jail.

Susanne Winter, a right-wing politician with the FPÖ party, stated that "in today's system" the Prophet Muhammad would be considered a "child molester". Winter who is running for a city council seat in the city of Graz, was apparently referring to Mohammed's marriage to a six-year-old child.

Winter stated that it is time for Islam to be "thrown back where it came from, behind the Mediterranean." She also stated, as have many others before her that Muhammad wrote the Koran in "epileptic fits."


EXCERPTS FROM
SPIEGEL: "In an interview with the daily Österreich published on Monday, Winter continued the onslaught saying that child abuse is "widespread" among Muslim men and that Graz is facing a "tsunami of Muslim immigration." In 20 or 30 years, she warned, half of Austria's population would be Muslim.

"Her comments have resulted in a storm of protest in Austria, with politicians and commentators of all stripes taking Winter and her party to task. Austrian prosecutors are...looking into the possibility of filing charges against the 50-year-old politician for incitement."

OPEN YOURSELF TO LIFE IN AN EFFORT TO SAVE WESTERN CIVILIZATION

Here is an incredible quote that sums up the struggle that Western Civilization faces if it is to survive. Once again, it is the Catholic Church that possesses the answers to the crisis of culture that we face. The Church is the only voice in the West that defends life and condemns artificial contraception. Anyone who fails to see the connection between contraception and the potentiality of Eurabia should examine their own participation in the culture of death--which inevitably blinds one to spiritual truths. The article is entitled "The Empty Manger" by John Zmirak. The entirety of this article is a must read--however for the sake of brevity I refer only to a portion of it. (H.T. to Brussels Journal):

"[T]he pansexual hedonists of the Netherlands are now in a panic over their nation’s Islamic future. Even the blasé Parisians have begun to wonder whether their nation’s bureaucratically atheist state is acid enough to dissolve the faith of burgeoning immigrants—before the Arabs outbreed, outvote, and expel the residual Frenchmen. The Germans who a generation ago worshiped their race as a pagan god now look on lackadaisically, and welcome the Turk into Europe. To read their children’s future, they may look to the fate of the Christians in Lebanon, or Kosovo —two other lands where the cradle has had its revenge.

A MUSLIM CALL TO PRAYER IN OXFORD

One day the Muslim call to prayer will be a common occcurance in the West --it has already begun in America. A city in the midst of Detroit called Hamtramck was once a Polish Catholic Community that went through a similar battle years ago and lost. It is now referred to as Hamtramckstan where the elderly Polish Catholic residents--what is left of them--must hear the call to prayer.

From
dailymail: Muslim plans to broadcast a loudspeaker call to prayer from a city centre mosque have been attacked by local residents who say it would turn the area into a "Muslim ghetto".

Dozens of people packed out a council meeting to express their concerns over the plans for a two-minute long call to prayer to be issued three times a day, saying that it could drown out the traditional sound of church bells.

But a spokesman for the Central Mosque said that Muslim's also have the right to

CANADIAN HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION SEEKS TO SILENCE MARK STEYN OVER MUSLIM COMPLAINTS


Mark Steyn, author of America Alone, is being investigated by the Canadian Human Rights Commission and the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal in response to complaints about an excerpt from his book that was published in the Canadian journal Maclean’s. The complaints were filed by the Canadian Islamic Congress. They claim the article “subjects Canadian Muslims to hatred and contempt,” and was “flagrantly Islamophobic.”

This indeed is a new day for a Nation that calls itself free. Under an atheistic secular regime such as Canada, truth must be stifled and the messengers of truth imprisoned because the truth makes the enemies of Christ e.g., sodomites and muslims uncomfortable about themselves. The enemies of Christ are one when it comes to silencing the truth.

From Robert Spencer via
Human Events: "To be sure, [Steyn's] article was pretty strong stuff. Here’s Read More...

UK HOSPITAL STAFF IS ENCOURAGED TO TURN MUSLIM BEDS TOWARD MECCA FIVE TIMES DAILY


I am becoming convinced that Secularism is a form of insanity. Fr John Hardon S.J. said "it is sheerest sanity to adore God. And is insanity to not recognize that except for God we wouldn’t exist..." The effects of this insanity are being played out before our very eyes in Britain. Only insanity, devoid of grace, could explain the suicidal self-loathing that causes a people to condemn its own heritage in favor of a civilization that is bent on its own domination and destruction.

FROM
dailymail: "...[N]urses are being encouraged to spend valuable time turning around the beds of Muslim patients up to five times a day - so they can face Mecca.

In a bid to promote cultural understanding, they are also expected to provide patients with running water so they can wash before prayer.

And then, of course, they are required to turn the beds back around to return the wards to normality. The measures are being pursued by Mid Yorkshire NHS Trust to ensure Muslim patients have a "more

BRTISH TEACHER ARRESTED & FACES 40 LASHES FOR NAMING TEDDY BEAR MOHAMED

From Dailymail: A British teacher is facing 40 lashes from a Sharia court in Sudan where she has been accused of insulting Islam by naming a teddy bear Mohamed.

Gillian Gibbons, 54, was being interrogated at a police station in the capital Khartoum today.

She had been working at one of the city's exclusive British schools for the past three months since giving up her job in Liverpool.

Twenty out of 23 pupils voted for Mohamed, which is also the name of one of the most popular boys in the class.

Mrs Gibbons had wanted to call the bear Faris but was overruled by the children, said a teacher who asked not to be named.

Children were asked to take the teddy home each

BRITISH SCHOOL ORDERS STUDENTS AND TEACHERS TO DRESS LIKE MUSLIMS FOR A DAY

"It seems that whoever is not a relativist is someone who is intolerant. To think that one can understand the essential truth is already seen as something intolerant. However, in reality this exclusion of truth is a type of very grave intolerance and reduces essential things of human life to subjectivism. In this way, in essential things we no longer have a common view. Each one can and should decide as he can. So we lose the ethical foundations of our common life." Cardinal Ratzinger, 2002

THE NETHERLANDS: AN INTERNAL STRUGGLE TO RETAIN FREEDOM AND SPEAK TRUTHFULLY ABOUT ISLAM

Earlier this week Dutch counter terrorism chief Tjibbe Joustra told a newspaper that he has "mixed feelings" about bold remarks on Islam.

"Radical remarks may push people who are already on the verge of using violence, over the edge," he said in reference to statements by opinion leaders like the liberal-right Freedom Party (PVV) leader Geert Wilders and Islam critic Ehsan Jami.

In response to the Joustra's dhimmi remarks, politician Geert Wilders and Ehsan Jami, founder of the Committee for ex-Muslims, took out a full page ad in a newspaper Wednesday harshly condemning Joustra's position as an attempt to silence the truth about Islam. Wilders and Jami warned against what they see as an attempt by Islam to conquer the world. They compared the Prophet Mohammed to Adolf Hitler.

"We consider that Joustra should catch terrorists instead of trying to muzzle

WILDERS: CULTURAL RELATIVISM MAKES ME SICK!

Dutch Politician and outspoken critic of the islamization of the Netherlands, Geert Wilders, recently stated in an interview: "Cultural relativism just makes me sick. You know the kind of thing: everyone is welcome; we'll be one big melting pot of cultures. It gives me goose bumps when I hear the prime minister talking that way. Of course, we shouldn't imitate everything in a culture we ourselves criticise. Just try walking down the street with a Bible in Saudi Arabia or calling yourself a Christian in Iran."

As to his promotion of the idea of banning the Koran--"I do make a distinction between people and religion. I think Islam is a terrible religion but I have nothing against people who act according to our laws and our values and that's not possible with that book [Koran] in your hand."
