'I feel like a stranger where I live’ [Islamized Britain]
The Telegraph [UK] ^ | 29 Jan 2013 | Jane Kelly

Posted on 02/03/2013 12:50:27 AM PST by Slings and Arrows

-snip-

The streets around Acton, which has been my home since 1996, have taken on a new identity. Most of the shops are now owned by Muslims and even the fish and chip shop and Indian takeaway are Halal. It seems that almost overnight it’s changed from Acton Vale into Acton Veil.

Of the 8.17 million people in London, one million are Muslim, with the majority of them young families. That is not, in reality, a great number. But because so many Muslims increasingly insist on emphasising their separateness, it feels as if they have taken over; my female neighbours flap past in full niqab, some so heavily veiled that I can’t see their eyes. I’ve made an effort to communicate by smiling deliberately at the ones I thought I was seeing out and about regularly, but this didn’t lead to conversation because they never look me in the face.

-snip-

More worryingly, I feel that public spaces are becoming contested. One food store has recently installed a sign banning alcohol on the premises. Fair enough. But it also says: “No alcohol allowed on the streets near this shop.” I am no fan of street drinking, and rowdy behaviour and loutish individuals are an aspect of modern British ''culture’’ I hate. But I feel uneasy that this shopkeeper wants to control the streets outside his shop. I asked him what he meant by his notice but he just smiled at me wistfully.

Perhaps he and his fellow Muslims want to turn the area into another Tower Hamlets, the east London borough where ''suggestive’’ advertising is banned and last year a woman was refused a job in a pharmacy because she wasn’t veiled.

Muslims define areas as their own and any non-Muslim becomes an invader, guilty of a hate crime.

I found the video mentioned in the article of the Muslim patrol going up to people in the streets telling people not to drink and telling a woman to cover up:

They colonize and do not assimilate. Very rare in our rural part of Northern VA so they drive 60 or so miles towards DC each weekend to be with their kind. It’s hard to imagine them taking over unlike the Hispanics out here.

I feel like a stranger in Raleigh NC - and not from Muslims (though that would be very strange indeed). It’s just from a city of government workers, government benefits takers, academics and trial lawyers - a town that went 55% Obama AGAIN.

My hometown, and I feel no attachment to it whatsoever anymore.

“Muslims define areas as their own”

According to the Koran, the entire WORLD belongs to Muslims, and we “infidels” are guilty in muzzies’ eyes of disobeying the will of Allah by not submitting to Islam.

OBTW, did you know that every human being is Muslim at birth? It’s in the Koran. Most however are “misled” by their parents into a religion or way of life that is un-Islamic.

I like living in South Carolina. Our muzzies here are seen but not heard. They believe S.C. is dominated by dangerous gun-toting beer-swilling Bible-thumping rednecks. That’s partly true.

Only here’s a brain teaser: Our downtown mosque has for some reason its own hearse, in their parking lot. Who besides a funeral home has a need for a hearse?

Yes; like the weed; that first 'sleeps'; then creeps. . .then leaps. So many analogies/metaphors; including the 'slow-cooked frog'; but, by and large; they fall on 'ear's; and before eyes; so damaged by Political Correctness that the 'wisdom' they carry; is rendered; irrelevant.

Again; we must 'push back'; before our Country is entirely refashioned into the unthinkable; and unrecognizable.

(Marxist PC MO's; have put our country 'at risk'; great risk and 'deliberately so. It allows propaganda to flourish; while compromising 'truth' and moral judgment; at every turn.)

Am guessing that at time of death; no 'funeral parlor' or State Agency notified. Rather; the Mosque 'Authorities' are; and body picked up by them. They surely do not want 'their own' - alive - sharing space with infidels; much less 'dead'; whereby they would still consider it a defilement; for the deceased Muslim; to share space in a hearse - whereby 'any old, disgusting infidel'; had preceded them.

These people walk in two worlds made 'one'. There is NO separation of their 'State' and religion. (And why they should not be given 'tax exemptions' based on 'religion'. Their Koran is their politics; and their Government. . .)

And no question; they want it to be the same; for ALL; per ANYwhere; they live. And they are dedicated to that realization - and by the most heinous of MO's to survive into the civilized world. Oh; yes; quiet. . .patient; again; like the weed that slowly takes root. . .

An English Politician correctly predicted this in the 1950’s. His name was Enoch Powell and in his “Streets of blood” speech he foretold these very things. He was rewarded by being loudly proclaimed as a “Racialist” and relegated to obscurity.

They do not intend to assimilate. When large enough; many enough; it is yo - we - who will be expected to 'assimilate' - and submit.

We cannot underestimate their agenda/goals and MO's to accomplish such. As well; we cannot ignore; their success, thus far. There 'good' appears innocuous; any forewarnings of 'bad'; ascribed to the sick beholder.

And so this 'Allah Totalitarianism' is 'stealth rising' in our midst. Their leadership, freely admits; they never thought 'the taking of America' would be so easy.

Heck, you’ve done a good job describing America. I spent much of my military career either overseas or deploying 6 months each year. Now that I’ve retired, I look around and wonder where the country I remembered went.

It’s gone. I feel like a stranger.

Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat

Frontline ^ | Adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond's book
Posted on Monday, March 31, 2008 7:07:45 PM by engrpat..."Received this in a email today.///Thought I would pass it on for everyones information."
(from a soon to be released major work - see book credit at end)

Islam is not a religion nor is it a cult. It is a complete system.
Islam has religious, legal, political, economic and military components.
The religious component is a beard for all the other components.
Islamization: Occurs when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their so-called "religious rights."
When politically correct and culturally diverse societies agree to "the reasonable" Muslim demands for their "religious rights," they also get the other components under the table.

Here's how it works (percentages source CIA: The World Fact Book (2007)). As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films, stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness:
United States -- Muslim 1.0%
Australia -- Muslim 1.5%
Canada -- Muslim 1.9%
China -- Muslim 1%-2%
Italy -- Muslim 1.5%
Norway -- Muslim 1.8%
At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs:
Denmark -- Muslim 2%
Germany -- Muslim 3.7%
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. 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 it on their shelves -- along with threats for failure to comply. (United States).

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 under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world but to establish Sharia law over the entire world.
When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions (Paris -- car-burnings). Any non- Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats (Amsterdam -- Mohammed cartoons).

Guyana -- Muslim 10%
India -- Muslim 13.4%
Israel -- Muslim 16%
Kenya -- Muslim 10%
Russia -- Muslim 10-15%
After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning:
Ethiopia -- Muslim 32.8%
At 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare:
Bosnia -- Muslim 40%
Chad -- Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon -- Muslim 59.7%
From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels:
Albania -- Muslim 70%
Malaysia -- Muslim 60.4%
Qatar -- Muslim 77.5%
Sudan -- Muslim 70%
After 80% expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide: 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 - there's supposed to be peace because everybody is a Muslim:
Afghanistan -- Muslim 100%
Saudi Arabia -- Muslim 100%
Somalia -- Muslim 100%
Yemen -- Muslim 99.9%


Of course, that's not the case. To satisfy their blood lust, Muslims then start killing each other for a variety of reasons..."Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me
against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; and the tribe against the world and all of us against the infidel."
-- Leon Uris, "The Haj"

It is good to remember that in many, many countries, such as France, the Muslim populations are centered around ghettos based on their ethnicity. Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. Therefore, they exercise more power than their national average would indicate.

Oh, I think Americans figured out what Islam "is", a long time ago...

"The Koran demands perpetual war against all who deny Mahomet as the prophet of God" - John Quincy Adams
"Treachery and violence are taught as principles of Mohamet's religion" - John Quincy Adams
"While the merciless dogmas of Muhammad remain there can never be peace upon earth" - John Quincy Adams

Isn’t that illegal? A death certificate must be issued & recorded, or maybe the muzzies have their own muzzie doctors to perform that office. IIRC their dead must be buried by sundown. In a separate muzzie cemetery, of course.

They do live in a separate world. And they have a slogan:

“OUR religion today is YOUR religion tomorrow!!” Or, as Profit Mohammed said,

“First we come for the Saturday people, then we come for the Sunday people.”

Remember, Islam is a tide that is always coming in.

“...no ‘funeral parlor’ or State Agency notified/

Oh; did not mean to imply State not notified; etc. but on 'first call'; they most likely prefer tp call their own people for help. Or; maybe it is 'second call'/lol.

Whatever; they prefer 'Muslim specific' rather than the 'public generic'; though certainly not always possible.

This story for example per google:

When Adil Imdad’s 28-year-old cousin died of cancer in Ohio two years ago, the family’s grief was compounded by the absence of Muslim ritual following her death. There was no imam nearby to handle the religious customs, no Muslim funeral director to supervise the washing of the body, no Muslim cemetery where the family could lay her to rest. (Imdad to the 'cause. . .)

So he began taking night classes at St. Louis Community College, graduating last spring with a certificate of specialization in funeral directing. . . .he is trying to raise money for what he says will be the state’s first Muslim funeral home.

“The community is growing, and things are going well for Muslims in St. Louis now,” Adil said. “But this is one area where we are way behind.”

*Muslim communities in Kansas City, Columbia and Jefferson City maintain small funeral facilities, often inside mosques, for washing bodies of the deceased.

. . . As the Muslim population of the U.S. has grown ― the number of mosques grew 74 percent in the last 10 years, according to a 2011 survey ― so has the need for *Muslim-specific services like funeral homes and cemeteries. /excerpt/

LOL;. . . not my 'hometown' but works for most of us; no matter where we live. How about, as well. . .

Football, soccer; but you can't keep score no more dodge ball; less your targeted 'more'; not even musical chairs; can pass this score - (your child might fall down; on a very hard floor')- no jungle gyms; left in sight; basketball an order; but only 'at night'. . . Meantime;

War; war; here come the troops; the men in dresses the women in boots. Their guns are 'fake'; no war can they make. Be nice to the enemy; leave only love in your wake. America;America; where have you gone. . .taken leave of our senses; and so we are done. . .

Still; have hope; of course; cause over the 'rise'; our troops do still come. Just hope they make it to the White House; before it too; becomes something else; entirely.

Your post @17.

I agree with your summary of Enoch Powell's speech. If people can use their own good common sense and evaluate just what he said, we are the better for it. I would like to add something that not everyone seems to appreciate ,with regard to the ethic cleansing of Englishmen.

I know Acton fairly well, for my wife and I were married at St Mary's Church, Acton in 1961. We are still together in Canada. She is very liberal (bless her). She will not go back to her home town again.

What I do emphasize for our American friends is that the real culprits in this business have walked away scot free. For Acton as I knew it, was a happy go lucky working class and lower middle class town. People went to work and did all the things that people did. Life went on and even old Adolf and his Luftwaffe did not end it. Now it is all over.

The high mucky mucks that sought to destroy South Africa and Rhodesia used every means to do so. They also thrust multi-culture on England, and had the power to bring it about. My point is this. The high political gurus, flirting with exotic culture then live in an enclave. Their residences are so expensive that this eliminates much of the undesirable effects of mass immigration. Oh sure there is a new person from the other world in their area. He is likely a doctor, a high civil servant, an engineer etc. "Oh won't you come over for tea" etc. They then sneer at the exodus of the English working class. Those who find it impossible to live as they did.

America is the last bastion of good old commensense and decency. America that has said this to millions this. Yes we welcome you, but leave the bigoted practices that you fled from.

Excuse the ramble.

I read over some of the comments and agree. How often do honest men and women fall prey to some charlatan who gives out THEIR version. Well varnished of course.

Anyway, enjoyed my trip to the Isle of Skye 1954. Also a walk across Rannoch Moor.
