1 out of 4 British Muslims say that the 7/7 bombings were justified. 33 percent say killing in the name of religion is justified. 61 percent want Sharia courts operating under Islamic law. With nearly 3 million British Muslims, that’s nearly 750,000 potential terrorists to a mere 12,000 guards. The sight of British soldiers fresh from patrolling Afghanistan being retasked to guard London should be enormously significant as a sign of things to come.
There are already 16 million Muslims in the European Union. That’s half of Afghanistan. With high birth rates and population doubling, there will be an entire Afghanistan’s worth of Muslims in the EU within two decades.
NATO was unable to hold Afghanistan, but it might consider that as practice for the more vital task of holding London and Paris. And it will need a good deal more men and anti-aircraft weapons that are there all through the year.
Naturally no one is thinking of that now, just as when the flood of Muslim immigrants began no one was thinking that the next time the Olympics came to London it would take twenty battalions and weapons designed to fight a Soviet invasion just to secure the brotherhood games of mankind. Considering that no one had enough wit to have enough guards in place for the Olympics, it isn’t likely that the same system frantically deploying troops now is thinking twenty years ahead.
That’s a pity because the enemy, the bearded men in basement mosques who inspire Muslims to blow themselves up, are thinking twenty years ahead. They’re also thinking two-hundred years ahead to an Islamic London which will be as likely to play host to games full of half-naked athletes and pagan symbols as it will be to host a free press or a pub. The idea sounds absurd, but then again Istanbul used to be called Constantinople.
The thing about absurd ideas is that they only stay absurd if someone stops them from being carried out. As the immigrants keep coming, nailing down refugee status, dole payments and several wives, there will eventually be enough of them around so that the 61 percent that wants Sharia law will get their way, just as they did in Egypt. It will take a while, but that just means there will be plenty more terror alerts to look forward to in the interim.
Pierre de Coubertin, the father of the modern Olympics, said that, “The important thing is not to win but to take part; the important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well.”
The importance of participation is the glorious slogan of diversity, but the people who might be working out their 2012 Summer Olympics plots are not satisfied with taking part in London or Europe. They did not come there to win “Good Conduct” medals. They came to win.
Their struggle, their Jihad, is to conquer. There is no good sportsmanship in terror. No one congratulates you for following the rules, any rules. In the Olympics playing well is more important than winning because victory is materialistic, while sportsmanship is a spiritual act. In Islam, both winning and sportsmanship are materialistic; the only spiritual act is the struggle that leads to victory.
To the Islamists, sports are a distraction from what is truly important in life, a contest whose lack of meaning mocks the seriousness of their preferred sport of death. There is no room in Islam for empathizing with the fallen enemy or admiring the runner who limps across the finish line. These are tests of character and the only test of character in Islam that matters is being willing to kill or die in the name of Islam.
