Afghanistan Comes to London


Soldier-Killed-in-London-624x351After telling the story of Mohammed’s boast that he would make the mountain come to him, only to be forced to go to it, Francis Bacon observed, “If the mountains will not come to Mohammed, Mohammed will go to the mountain.”

Americans, Englishmen, Frenchmen and countless others went to the Muslim world hoping to turn it into another Boston, another London and another Paris. Instead, Boston, London and Paris are turning into another Kabul, another Islamabad and another Mogadishu. Mohammed has come to the mountain.

Five years ago, the sight of Muslim terrorists beheading British soldiers was a horror that could happen in Afghanistan or Iraq. Now it has happened in broad daylight in the capital of the United Kingdom.

In a decade, 600,000 white Londoners have fled the city. Those are the sorts of numbers you would expect from the Syrian civil war. Their place has been taken by the million Muslims occupying the city.

Woolwich Common, adjacent to the area where the attack took place, is described as an “inner-city multicultural neighborhood” which is to say that it is more ethnically diverse than the London average; it has more violent crimes than average and is among the 5% of poorest neighborhoods. Only 58% of its population was born in England and a quarter of its residents immigrated in that same dreadful decade.

Multiculturalism has enriched the area with the Woolwich Manz, a Somali Muslim gang whose antics have led residents to fear walking the streets at night. The Royal Borough of Greenwich’s Social Inclusion and Justice Division informs us that there are thousands of Somalis in the borough, most of whom live in Woolwich Common and Woolwich Riverside.

Gang wars over the lucrative drug business have broken out between the Woolwich Manz and other African gangs. Already in 2007, the London Evening Standard said that area residents were describing the Woolwich Common Estate as a “war zone” with stabbings and shootings and a new generation of child soldiers being recruited into the war. It was a little piece of Somalia in the United Kingdom.

The two men who butchered a British soldier are believed to be Somalis. Last year it was reported that dozens of Muslims in the UK were being trained to fight for Al Qaeda in Somalia. There were concerns over what those men would do once they returned to the United Kingdom.

Al-Shabaab, the local Al Qaeda franchise, subsists on tens of thousands of pounds from the hundreds of thousands of Somali settlers living in the United Kingdom. In 2012, Al-Shabaab terrorists had threatened a terrorist attack against the UK, saying, “The nightmare that surreptitiously looms on British shores is bound to eclipse the horrors of 7/7 and 21/7 combined.”

That nightmare still looms. It is the nightmare of the savage wars of the Muslim world being exported to the United Kingdom.

Last year, Shabaaz Hussain was sentenced to five years in jail in Woolwich Crown Court for his fundraising activities on behalf of Al-Shabaab. Five years earlier, Osama bin London and his followers had been sentenced at that same court for the 21/7 plot which attempted to set off bombs in a number of London Underground stations.  The majority of Bin London’s followers were African immigrants.

Ramzi Mohammed, a Somali, turned to face a young mother with a baby in her stroller before trying to detonate his bomb.

Muslim fighters have torn Somalia apart. And importing 200,000 of them into the United Kingdom is beginning to have the same effect. There are an estimated 70,000 Somalis in Greater London. That makes London the 12th largest city in Somalia. Nearly 2 percent of Somalia now lives in the UK.

80 percent of Somalis in the UK live in public housing. They have the lowest employment rate of every immigrant group in the country. And within four years, they had managed to rack up over ten thousand arrests. Every effort to integrate them has failed. Rather than the Somalis becoming British, shards of Britain have become little Mogadishus.

The Somalis are not alone in this regard. Muslim immigration to the UK has brought the norms of Somalia, Afghanistan and Egypt to the streets of London. Individual acts of violence can be overlooked. But there is nothing individual about all these cases. This is a culture of violence.

Islam sanctifies that culture of violence. It takes tribal killings and endows them with the status of a religious duty. Jihad is simply gang warfare, no different than the kind practiced by the Woolwich Manz, given theological meaning. Men have been butchering other men with machetes throughout Africa. But when a Muslim mutilates a British soldier with a machete, then he is engaging in a religious ritual.

This is no clash of civilizations because there is hardly anything resembling civilization on the other side. Islam began with a gang raiding caravans. It now persists in gangs raiding across Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Europe.

What happened near Woolwich Commons would not have been considered extraordinary in Afghanistan, Somalia or Syria. It is only extraordinary because it has been a long time since rampaging Vikings were disemboweling the locals. It is only extraordinary because the nation is hobbled by the assumptions of civilization. And one of those basic assumptions is that murderers with red hands will not carry out beheadings in your streets.

The United Kingdom has become a civilized place. Unfortunately its practice of importing savages makes that civilization of climbing roses and social progress unsustainable. If you import millions of people who follow a religion that sanctifies tribal violence, then you must expect tribal violence to tear apart what you have built. And if you do not wish that to happen, then you must close the gates on the barbarians.

There is no need to go fight the Taliban in Afghanistan. Not when they are already living in London in public housing and screeching diatribes about the coming conquest while treating themselves to all the luxuries of the welfare state. And as their numbers grow, ignoring them will become impossible.

The butchers who perpetrated this latest atrocity wanted to be seen. They wanted to break through the media boycott to tell the peoples of the United Kingdom that they were being murdered in the name of Islam. The story is already being met with the usual cognitive dissonance and being swept under the rug, but that just means that the next bunch will try even harder to convey the message that the war is here.

    The serpent is showing its true colours. Only a dumb leftist would try to apologise for the crimes of Islam. My thoughts are with the poor murdered man and his family.

    One thing, which has always bothered me to no end, is that western media and societies always demand that all Muslims in the world should denounce the brutal acts of violence committed by individuals.
    There are two points in this issue to remember.

    Most Muslims do denounce such acts but that gets very little coverage in the media. I know from personal experience that it is very difficult for people to even get a little letter to the editor published let alone have an invitation to appear on national TV to say express opinions.

    Secondly, I never heard such demands of mass apology from American Christian public when Timothy James "Tim" McVeigh, an American terrorist detonated a truck bomb in front of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995 and killed hundreds of innocent American or someone asked the Norwegian public to take responsibility when Anders Behring Breivik bombed the party headquarters of the Labour Party in Oslo and then carried out mass shooting on 22 July 2011 killing 77 of innocent youth.

    There are many other examples of individual terrorism, killing and mass murders committed by people in the west, especially in the USA where the shootings of innocent people is almost a weekly occurring.

    I neither heard media describing such actions as Christian terrorism or demanding an apology or denunciation from the western public at large who are of course of Christian heritage.

    So why this hypocrisy?
    I am just asking question.

    So let us have a sober deabte about it.

    Please be civilzed.

      "I neither heard media describing such actions as Christian terrorism…"

      They'd love it if they could find any evidence. "Christian terrorism" is oxymoronic. Islamic terrorism is a fact of life since the original Muslim terrorist Mohammed claimed to be a prophet.

      "So why this hypocrisy? I am just asking question."

      You're completely deluded about the facts. Or you're a liar. Or both.

      The time for debate with you muslims is over, only war with you savages is going to solve the problem, so get out of the west before that new game of cowboys and muslims becomes a reality.

    • Mary Sue

      Um, WRONG-O! Timothy McVeigh was NOT a Christian.

  • Bashy Quraishy

    Is it absolutely impossible to have a sober discussion with the readers of FrontPage? It seems that the vulgar language and hatred has taken over these commentators.
    Threatening me or others peaceful people from Muslim communities only goes show that some people are as ignorant and extremists as those nut cases who killed this poor British soldier.

    • Michael Copeland

      The "nut cases" quoted the Koran, surah At Tawba, (Chapter 9) as "forcing" them to do what they did: "KIll the unbelievers wherever you find them" (9:5). They were being orthodox muslim, carrying out orthodox Islamic commands in the unchangeable Koran. Denial of any verse in it is a capital offence.

  • Ellman

    This kind of barbarism does not need to be understood. It needs to be stopped, not rationalized, "explained", "justified". That a savage can behead someone in the streets of London, then lecture the onlookers with blood on his hands, means that the culture of murder and barbarism has been transplanted from Africa into Britain. The barbarians have invaded Britain as they did the Roman Empire in the 4th Century AD. The outcome is likely to be the same because Britain's politicians are not any smarter or wiser than were the rulers of Rome before it disintegrated.

    Michael Copeland says in his comment: “The “nut cases” quoted the Koran, surah At Tawba, (Chapter 9)”

    Michael, if you knew or read Quran and especially Sura At-Taubah ( Chapter 9), you would have known that it contains 129 verses. The whole Sura talks about the situation of Prophet’s struggle with the Pagans of Mecca who were prosecuting Muslims of that time.

    Read for example Verse 5.

    Then when the Sacred Months (the Ist, 7th, 11th, and 12th months of the Islâmic calendar) have passed, then kill the Mushrikûn wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and prepare for them each and every ambush. But if they repent and perform As-Salât and give Zakât, then leave their way free. Verily, Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

    First of all, Michael, to use such verses and connect these to London, Madrid or New York attacks by some deranged individuals claiming to be Muslims is not only stupid but an insult to common sense.

    As you can see, the Quranic verses dealing with the issue of war were for that time. It should be understood in the context of that time, situation and circumstances. Anyone – Muslim or non-Muslim who try to use or misuse the verses and selectively quote these is not only wrong but also an enemy of the society.

    Coming to what scholars say, if we take every Tom, Dick and Harry’s personal understanding and violent interpretation of Quran then there never will be peace. The misuse of religion is a universal phenomenon and cannot be attributed to any religion. When President Bush was asked if he has consulted his father before invading Iraq, he raised his finger towards the sky and said; That father.

    Hitler also used Christianity to murder 6 million Jews and the father of the reformation of Catholic dogmas, Martin Luther’s book; The Jews and the Turks is the worst racist doctrine of violence. Crusades, Inquisition, slavery, colonialism, extermination of native Indians and Australian Aboriginals by Christian settlers and European Wars of Religions are few examples of Christian violence. But Jesus or Bible did not sanction it but Christians used it anyhow to destroy tribes, cultures and nations. Christians should be the last one on earth to teach anyone a lesson in peace.

    On top of this, those ignorant who say that Islam was spread by sword elegantly forget that the Constantine the Great who was proclaimed emperor by his troops at Eboracum (York) in 306 embraced Christianity in 312 after deciding that he owed victory in the battle of Milvian Bridge to the Christian God. And from thereon history recoded that Christianity spread through conquests by various kingdoms – swords, plunder and extermination.

    But connecting all that to the peaceful teachings of Jesus Christ and the gospel of love in Christian Bible would be foolish as it would be idiotic to connect Islam with violence and extremism.

  • Esthea

    The attacker with the bloody hands and knife has no blood on his clothes. This is very strange and speaks for a false flag. 9/11 was also an inside job so as to justify the invasion of Irak. Just google it : 9/11 inside job. Documentaries are coming out with undeniable evidence that those twin towers were pulverized by a controlled demolition. Wake up people! There is more than meets the eye. This is all done in the pursuit of a world government – the New World Order -1984! Create an enemy which then justifies government control of its citizens which would never fly without it being called: emergency measures. Wake up people!!!

  • Esthea

    I forgot to add to my previous comment that the government is using and fostering multi-culturism to open the door to Islam and Muslims so as to create tensions which then justify terrorist attacks staged or real. It is obvious that Islam is not compatible with Western style democracies but this is exactly why the doors to Muslim countries have been opened for uncontrolled immigration. It will cause problems to which the government will propose solutions that will undoubtedly infringe on our rights and freedoms – bit by bit until it is too late and the citizens are controlled like rats in a cage – all in the name of fighting terrorism.
