Brits are too polite and scared of offending “vocal and aggressive Muslims”: former Obama adviser
Daily Mail (UK) ^ | 06:55 EST, 16 March 2013 | Steve Robson

British society is scared of offending “vocal and aggressive” Muslims, claims a former adviser to Barack Obama.

Professor Lawrence Krauss made his comments after threatening to walk out of a debate hosted by an Islamic group at the University College London where organizers would not allow men and women to sit together.

The Islamic Education and Research Academy (iERA) told women to sit at the back, while men and couples were sent to the front. Three people who objected were ordered to leave. …

“People are not only afraid to offend, but afraid to offend a vocal and aggressive group of people,” he said, according to the Daily Telegraph. …

Well, they’d better get over it quickly, or they’ll have to get used to it.

When I was a kid, I remember my British mother saying stuff along those lines. I was shocked at her 'racism.' Yes, I learned a lot in school.

Hey, listen, “Professor” and “former Obama adviser” Krauss,
Muslims wanting to segregate men and women in public is the LEAST of it, and the least of Islamic claims on the cultures of the West and the UK in particular.
They do it in the UK, and much else, because experience has taught them they can get away with it.
They don’t do it here, because it would be overplaying their
hand.
The Professor latches on to an “issue” that plays to the
traditions of the West, is understandable in both the UK and the US, and I suppose it was a good thing for him to say it,
but as soon as he leaves and they sense no challenges from someone else at some future date, they’ll do it again.
The Muslims know exactly how to calibrate the edges of the envelope they’re pushing.
And yeah, there is some truth in the claim that Islamic men and women separate themselves automatically at public events,so really, he’s not taking a stand that is that brave, or even that informed. The fact that they wound up allowing the gender mix proves that they know when to bend and how; it’s mere window dressing they had to put up with
to “let the show go on”.

If this guy is an Obama advisor, he can’t be much better than the Brits.

Probably he just wanted to sit next to a pretty girl.

Islam Explained in Layman’s Terms

This is a long post, but shows that where Muslims dominate, violence follows, even after they’ve taken control. Islam is a warrior’s code, not a religion.

Islam is a warrior’s code, not a religion.

Islam Explained in Layman’s Terms

Adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond’s book: Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat.

Islam is not a religion, nor is it a cult. In its fullest form, it is a complete, total, 100% system of life.

Islam has religious, legal, political, economic, social, and military components. The religious component is a beard for all of the other components.

Islamization begins when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their religious privileges.

When politically correct, tolerant, and culturally diverse societies agree to Muslim demands for their religious privileges, some of the other components tend to creep in as well.

Here’s how it works:

As long as the Muslim population remains around or under 2% in any given country, they will be for the most part be regarded as a peace-loving minority, and not as a threat to other citizens. This is the case in:

United States — Muslim 1.8%
Australia — Muslim 1.5%
Canada — Muslim 1.9%
China — Muslim 1.8%
Italy — Muslim 1.5%
Norway — Muslim 1.8%

At 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs. This is happening in:

Denmark — Muslim 2%
Germany — Muslim 5.2%
United Kingdom — Muslim 2.7%
Spain — Muslim 4%
Thailand — Muslim 4.6%

From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply. This is occurring in:

France — Muslim 8%
Philippines — Muslim 5%
Sweden — Muslim 5%
Switzerland — Muslim 4.3%
The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5%
Trinidad & Tobago — Muslim 5.8%

At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. In Paris , we are already seeing car-burnings. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam, with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam. Such tensions are seen daily, particularly in Muslim sections in:

Guyana — Muslim 10%
India — Muslim 13.4%
Israel — Muslim 16%
Kenya — Muslim 10%
Russia — Muslim 15%

After reaching 20%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues, such as in:

Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%

At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare, such as in:

Bosnia — Muslim 40%
Chad — Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon — Muslim 59.7%

From 60%, nations experience unfettered persecution of non-believers of all other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels, such as in:

Albania — Muslim 70%
Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%
Qatar — Muslim 77..5%
Sudan — Muslim 70%

After 80%, expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations drive out the infidels, and move toward 100% Muslim, such as has been experienced and in some ways is on-going in:

Bangladesh — Muslim 83%
Egypt — Muslim 90%
Gaza — Muslim 98.7%
Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%
Iran — Muslim 98%
Iraq — Muslim 97%
Jordan — Muslim 92%
Morocco — Muslim 98.7%
Pakistan — Muslim 97%
Palestine — Muslim 99%
Syria — Muslim 90%
Tajikistan — Muslim 90%
Turkey — Muslim 99.8%
United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96%

100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of Peace. Here there’s supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrasses are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word, such as in:

Afghanistan — Muslim 100%
Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%
Somalia — Muslim 100%
Yemen — Muslim 100%

Unfortunately, peace is never achieved, as in these 100% states the most radical Muslims intimidate and spew hatred, and satisfy their blood lust by killing less radical Muslims, for a variety of reasons.

It is important to understand that in some countries, with well under 100% Muslim populations, such as France, the minority Muslim populations live in ghettos, within which they are 100% Muslim, and within which they live by Sharia Law. The national police do not even enter these ghettos. There are no national courts, nor schools, nor non-Muslim religious facilities. In such situations, Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. The children attend madrasses. They learn only the Koran. To even associate with an infidel is a crime punishable with death. Therefore, in some areas of certain nations, Muslim Imams and extremists exercise more power than the national average would indicate.

Today’s 1.5 billion Muslims make up 22% of the world’s population. But their birth rates dwarf the birth rates of Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, and all other believers. Muslims will exceed 50% of the world’s population by the end of this century.

Adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond’s book: Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat.

Well, boys and girls, today we are letting the fox guard the henhouse. The wolves will be herding the sheep!

Obama appointed two devout Muslims to Homeland Security posts. Doesn’t this make you feel safer already? Arif Alikhan as Assistant Secretary for Policy Development and Kareem Shora as ADC National Executive Director.

NOTE: Has anyone ever heard a new government official being identified as a devout Catholic, a devout Jew or a devout Protestant...? Just wondering.

Devout Muslims being appointed to critical Homeland Security positions? Doesn’t this make you feel safer already??

Was it not “Devout Muslims” who flew planes into U.S. buildings 8 years ago?

Was it not a Devout Muslim who killed 13 at Fort Hood?

That would not be a blessing. (Although Obama would agree.)

And Ireland has willingly sacrificed her independence to the European Union, besides, and especially to the country that controls the EU. That is not going to end well.

Respectfully, that ignores all of Irish history. The threat to Ireland’s freedom came from England, and from England alone. The EU didn’t commit genocide in Ireland, England did. The EU didn’t persecute the Church in Ireland, England did. The EU didn’t steal the food from the mouths of starving children, England did. God is just. England will die, as all tyrants do. God’s destruction of England may come from Muslim infiltration, which is something I never even suspected could happen until recently. But it looks increasingly likely. Like I say, one can only hope.

You may be surprised to learn that a great deal of that is propaganda, and especially Communist propaganda (not to mention bolstered by the Nazis). But by all means, keep believing what they say, at the expense of your credibility. And keep resembling an Obama supporter in that vein, what with this active undermining of the “special relationship”.

I lived in Ireland; did you? Are you going to presume a greater knowledge of Irish history? They never tell you about the Irish Constitution’s Third Amendment in Ireland’s schools, which places European law supreme over Irish domestic law. Eamon de Valera signed that one into law in 1972; and he always claimed to have been fighting for Irish independence, not to sell out Ireland to a worse empire than the British Empire (which, for the record, Ireland was not forced to join). Furthermore, Irish MPs in the British Empire were highly influential over that empire’s policy; in the European Union, no MEP ever influences the agenda (they have no legislative initiative) and all members of the Commission have to swear an oath to uphold the European agenda at the expense of the good of their home countries.

Most of the rebels in the 1916 “Rising” were Communists. I’m glad they never seized power in that country, otherwise Ireland would have had to suffer far worse bloodshed than what they brought upon themselves in any other rebellion.

And for the record, it was an Irish provincial king that subjected Ireland to the rule of England in the first place: Diarmaid Mac Murchadha (a polygamist, per Brehon laws) swore fealty to Henry II in order to get his kingship of Leinster back after High King Ruadhraí Ua Conchubhair deposed him for kidnapping the daughter of the king of Breifne. In addition to that, the annexation of Ireland by England was authorized by Pope Adrian IV, wherein said pope granted Henry II lordship of Ireland.

In addition to the historical points Olog-hai makes above, do you realize that for many generations these English know nothing of the history that festers and knaws at you like a diseased rat.

If you know anything about England, you know that in the vast majority these are dumbed-down people who know nothing of history, for example happily supporting an Irish sports team over whatever the opposition might be.

But what do you care about that. No enlightened thoughts of “hate the regime, be fair with the people” for you. You’d actually rather Islam take over to satiate your hate. If the evil of Islam does ever destroy England, you can be sure it will hunt you down and destroy you. The Devil treats his enemies badly, and his supporters worse.

Brits think they're 'above it all' when it comes to aggressive rude people. They're wrong.

The silent treatment works just fine... a tilt of the head, nose moved slightly up - the rude person devastated - put in his place. Works when the rude person 'gets' British subtlety - when both parties read from the same upper class rule book... a Brit version that would make Emily Post blush...

But with people from other cultures? Cultures that kill female children over slights to male superiority? Nope, it's not going to work. Brits need to step up and get real... the empire's over.

That would be a small price to pay to hear the Muslim call to prayer ringing out from St. Paul's. It might be closer than you think. It's rumored the Prince Charles is a Muzzie. Lol. You gotta love it.
