There has been a recent and much discussed opinion poll of British Muslims undertaken by the ComRes organisation for their client, the BBC. Unfortunately for those at the BBC who keep on telling us that that Islam is all fluffy and nice, some of the figures revealed show that British Muslim opinion is nothing of the sort.
As well as the figures that many people may expect from such a survey, such as the number of Muslims whining about how hard done by they are, there are other, more worrying figures. When we have 11% of your sample of Muslims willing to endorse those who fight against Britain and the rest of the free world, then it is time to politically and intellectually sober up, and accept that we have a problem.
11% of Muslims who support the enemies of this country is 11% too many. This figure does not represent a group who may disagree with a government policy and peacefully speak out against it, but those who support, whether in thought, word or deed, the barbarous thugs of groups like ISIS or Al Quaida or any of the other Islamofascist groups. 11% truly represents a horrendous fifth column problem that Britons of all faiths and races are going to have to wake up to the danger of and deal with, preferably with some form of ‘extreme prejudice’ on the part of Government and the security forces.
Another figure, which will emphasise to many Britons just how incompatible Islam is with modern British society, is that 24% of Muslims surveyed felt that violence against those who insult the Islamic ‘prophet’ is justified. This is yet more reason to justifiably worry about a politico-religious community that seems to be rapidly transmogrifying itself into an enemy within. It took centuries for Britain to become comfortable with religion being a matter that was, apart from the great national communal events, a relatively private matter. Islam, with it’s violence and aggressive demands for their beliefs to be accomodated in the public sphere, is a terrible threat to that national religious settlement.
How can any religious or political path that has 11% of its adherents who believe that they have the right to fight against this country and 24% of followers who believe that violence is justified against people who disagree with them, be honestly and truly described as ‘a religion of peace’? I’m increasingly of the opinion that it cannot and is an ideology that oppresses both its members and any group or nation that can be described as ‘other’.
These numbers tell us what those who consider ourselves ‘Islamo-realistic’ have believed for years and that is that there are an awful lot of individuals, influenced by Islamic politics, culture and theology, who are more than likely to suffer from some form of ‘sudden jihad syndrome’.
The rest of the headline data should also give us pause for thought and not in a good way. 7% of Muslims see British law as optional and not to be obeyed at all times nor treated as supreme. 6% of Muslims surveyed also said they felt some form of disloyalty to this country. This we should also worry about.
Although, from what little I’ve heard of the BBC’s coverage of this story, those commissioning it have emphasised the fact that 94% of Muslims consider themselves as loyal and generally working hard to polish the turd that is Islam, it is the other, less sunny, side of the figures that we should be paying attention to. It’s no good our lying to ourselves and saying ‘but most of them are peaceful’ when a number of them are plainly not. What this survey also reveals is how willing Muslims are to tell a relative stranger that they believe in Jihad against the UK and other free nations, want to impose Islamic blasphemy laws with violence on British people, care little for British law and feel disloyal to the country that spends directly and indirectly billions a year on Muslims and Islam. The UK pumps untold amounts of money into benefits for Muslims, medical care for their children whose minds and bodies have been congenitally wrecked by being the products of cousin marriage, and on funding security to defend Britons against the actions of deranged Muslims suffering from sudden jihad syndrome. Islam, whichever way you look at it, has brought nothing but grief to a nation that because they believed in fairness, treated Muslims as equals. They have repaid us and our decency and fairness with violence, rape, sedition and corruption.
We should no longer tolerate, this intolerable ideology and start treating it for what it is, which is an ideology incompatible with free societies, and not that ‘religion of peace’ that its adherents and spokesperson’s say Islam is.
This survey is merely yet another brick in the wall of evidence that is building up against this foul and destructive ideology.
