A pitiably small number of Britain’s mosques took part in this weekend’s ‘mosque open day’. Only a small proportion, 90 out of 1500, of Britain’s mosques opened their doors and peddled the ultimate lie about Islam, which is that Islam is a religion of peace. Before you ask, no I didn’t attend, I had better things to do with my time than being lectured to about the religion of death that is the ideology of Islam.
As could be expected, the mainstream media reported this mosque open day as a very positive thing, but not even Sky News could hide the fact that this event was all show and very little substance.
Here’s how Sky News reported this story, with as usual the original text in italics and my comments in plain text.
Sky News said:
“Mosques across Britain have opened their doors to visitors for the second national Visit My Mosque day, described by organisers as an attempt to reach out beyond “hostile headlines”.
It would be helpful in that case if the number of Muslims generating hostile headlines was considerably smaller.
The Muslim Council of Britain says 80 or 90 of the UK’s estimated 1,500 mosques took part, more than three times as many as last year.
It’s still not a lot though? It’s a mere 6% approximately which could be bothered to try to marshal some excuses for why Islam is what it is.
Some mosques offered tea and refreshments, while others welcomed visitors with piles of leaflets.
What were these leaflets called I wonder, were some entitled ‘We won’t cut your head off – honestly guv’nor’ or ‘Rape Gangs -Nothing to do with Islam, even though they do contain a lot of blokes called ‘Mohammed’?
The event follows a rise in anti-Muslim prejudice, with the number of Islamophobic incidents in London trebling after the Paris attacks in November last year.
Source please Sky? The ‘Islamophobia’ industry is notorious for inflated figures and making mountains out of molehills. The ongoing activities of the mendacious grievance mongering taqiyya artists of Tell Mama should make everyone aware of just how tricksy such groups can be.
At the Islamic Cultural Centre in London, the vicar of a neighbouring church welcomed the initiative.
Revd Anders Bergquist said: “There’s a great deal of misunderstanding and certain amount of prejudice out in our culture about our Muslim friends.
“I think it’s really good that they invite us in to see who they are and what they do.”
If you wanted a characature of a foolish, wet, naïve cleric then you couldn’t do much better than take the Reverend Bergquist as a pattern. Does it not occur to the Reverend gentleman that the very same ideology that he is pandering to like this is murdering Christians in their thousands in other countries? Does he not stop to consider how Muslims treat Christians when Muslims hold both temporal and spiritual power. I also don’t think that Reverend Bergquist has any concept of what life is like for Christians and others suffering under Islamic rule.
At the Makkah Mosque in Leeds, visited by Prime Minister David Cameron three weeks ago as he called on Muslim women to learn English to help counter extremism, there were few visitors.
Many of the local people may well be thinking that they’ve seen more than enough Islam in their areas to last them a lifetime and have no intention of voluntarily going in search of any more.
Those braving the cold wind in the city centre said they were not interested in visiting a mosque, with one shopper insisting she was more concerned about replacing her broken vacuum cleaner.
Wise choice madam. Good priorities there. Better to get the vacuum cleaner replaced rather than listen to industrial quantities of bullshit from your local Imam.
And on the subject of industrial quantities of BS…….
Imam Qari Asim shrugged off the low attendance and accepted that his worshippers will have to try harder to engage with non-Muslims.
You could try making more of an effort to encourage your co-religionists to stop murdering people, raping women and children, engaging in acts of sedition, welfare poncing etc etc.
“There is a fear on both sides and that should be of huge concern to anyone, an attack on any community is an attack on all of us,” he said.
There is not ‘fear on both sides’, there is a growing anger among the general population about what Islam and the politicians willingness to pander to Islam, is doing to the United Kingdom. Any fear felt on the part of the Muslim community has been brought upon them solely because of the acts of other Muslims. Muslims seem unable or unwilling to do what is necessary to control of eliminate their nutters, and that gives rise to the belief that support for Muslim nutters is far more widely spread than many Islamic ‘community leaders’ would like to admit.
“We are all in it together and only together can we defeat extremism.”
What does he mean ‘ all in this together’. This extremism is something brought here by Islam. It’s all Islam’s fault. We never had the horrific rape gangs, conscience-less bombers or amateur head choppers on these Islands until Islam reared its ugly head. Such things were, or so we thought, part of our dim and distant past, but then Islam arrived and brought its horrors with it.
This was a pointless and patently false ‘dog and pony’ show by Islamic organisations. We do not need or require Islam to be ‘explained’ to us. We can see what it’s like, read its foundational texts, observe the cultures that it creates. What we do need is for Muslims to become more civilised and start treating non-Muslims with much more respect than they do at the moment.
