    London (AFP) - Two Muslim extremists were on Thursday found guilty of the gruesome murder of a British soldier in broad daylight on a London street. Michael Adebolajo, 29, and Michael Adebowale, 22, hacked to death soldier Lee Rigby as he walked back to his barracks in Woolwich, southeast London, in May.

    Islamist Michael Adebolajo butchered a British soldier in Woolwich in May. After the murder, a group of British Muslims drove by the memorial set up on the sidewalk in Woolwich and laughed at the beheading of Lee Rigby, the soldier who was knifed to death. Then they posted it online.

    Recent incidents of Muslims behaving badly—such as the butchering of British soldier Lee Rigby by two Islamic-convert African immigrants, the riots in Stockholm, and the never-ending revelations about numerous Pakistani pimps “grooming” very young white English girls for being gang-banged by their relatives—has European elites terrified…of European commoners. For example, last week the European Parliament secretly voted to retroactively strip French nationalist Marine Le Pen, who won 17.9% of the national vote in the first round of the 2012 presidential election, of parliamentary immunity for comments made during her successful campaign for a law against prostration in the streets of...

    The Russian TV channel RT is, as usual, doing something right and something wrong, often in the same breath. Two days ago I saw its broadcast on the anti-Islam backlash in the UK following the brutal beheading of Drummer Lee Rigby in Woolwich, East London. In it they mentioned graffiti on mosques, attacks on Muslims and protest marches by the English Defence League (EDL), whose images were shown. Even in me, despite my distrust for the mainstrean, socio-communist media, they created a subliminal, temporary association between the first two, which are criminal acts, and the third, which is lawful exercise...

    Former British prime minister Tony Blair launched a scathing attack on fundamentalist Islam Sunday, writing that the West needs to admit that there is an ideological issue within the religion. Writing in the Daily Mail about last month’s gruesome murder of soldier Lee Rigby, in what officials have said is an Islamic terror attack, Blair said that the extremist world view within Islam went ” deeper and wider than it is comfortable for us to admit. “There is a problem within Islam – from the adherents of an ideology that is a strain within Islam. And we have to put...

    Tony Blair today makes his most powerful political intervention since leaving Downing Street by launching an outspoken attack on ‘the problem within Islam’. The former Prime Minister addresses the shocking killing of Drummer Lee Rigby in Woolwich by going further than he – or any front-rank British politician – has gone before over the issue of Muslim radicalism. Writing in today’s Mail on Sunday, he departs from the usual argument that Islam is a peaceful religion that should not be tainted by the actions of a few extremists. Instead, Mr Blair urges governments to ‘be honest’ and admit that the...

    It’s been a bad few weeks for cultural assimilation. Last month, two welfare-receiving immigrants in the United States, Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, set off bombs at the Boston Marathon, killing three people and injuring hundreds. By the end of the week, they had murdered a cop and engaged in a wild shoot-out and bomb-throwing melee with the police. Last week, a couple of ethnic Nigerians butchered a British soldier with meat cleavers in broad daylight on a bustling street in a London suburb, then boasted about the murder in video interviews with bystanders. (On the bright side, they did not...

    Ever since 9/11, every time some place or another on the planet has been struck by a major jihadist act, the mainstream media have reliably come out with stories about “backlash” against Muslims. Not accounts of actual backlash, mind you, but pieces in which various academics, public officials, Muslim leaders, and other sensitive souls have been described as wringing their hands over the dreaded possibility that some of us boorish infidels might respond to this latest action by going on the warpath against innocent Muslims. If these “backlash” articles have been such a staple of post-9/11 journalism, it’s obviously because...

    Nearly two-thirds of people believe there will be a 'clash of civilisations' between British Muslims and white Britons in the wake of the murder of a British soldier in Woolwich, a new poll shows. The number of those who believe such a clash is inevitable has increased by 9% from last year. There has also been a small increase in the proportion of people who believe British Muslims pose a serious threat to democracy, up to 34% on Thursday and Friday from 30% in November 2012, according to the YouGov survey of 1,839 adults.

    In the immediate aftermath of the recent Islamic butchering of a British soldier in broad daylight on a London street, Twitter was awash in outrage — but not so much against the Muslim terrorists. The massive outrage and hatred was directed against the controversial protest movement known as the English Defence League. You read that right. Endless numbers of deranged, brainwashed, politically-correct people took to social media to denounce (in the most derisive and hateful words) not the fact that murderous Muslims had once again made a gruesome public display of jihad on English soil — and boldly rubbed the...

    If you read complaints in civil litigation proceedings or spend much time in a courtroom listening to the plaintiff's attorney present his case in a tort action – you will hear a lot of these two phrases – “had reason to know” and “should have known”. This would be fully applicable in the case of negligence on the part of the British government, contributing to the death of Soldier Lee Rigby in Woolwich – a district in South East London. They had “reason to know” that they had an imported islamist terror element in their midst and they “should have...

    A mother of two who calmly confronted the Woolwich attackers on Wednesday has attributed her courage to her Catholic faith. Ingrid Loyau-Kennet, a practising Catholic, told the Daily Telegraph: “I live my life as a Christian. I believe in thinking about others and loving thy neighbour. We all have a duty to look after each other. A whole group of people walking towards those guys would have found it easy to take those weapons out of their hands. But me, on my own, I couldn’t.”Mrs Loyau-Kennet was travelling on the Number 53 bus through Woolwich in south east London on...

    Another Islamist terror attack, another round of assurances that it had nothing to do with the religion of peace.I've seen this before. A Muslim terrorist slays a non-Muslim citizen in the West, and representatives of the Muslim community rush to dissociate themselves and their faith from the horror. After British soldier Lee Rigby was hacked to death last week in Woolwich in south London, Julie Siddiqi, representing the Islamic Society of Britain, quickly stepped before the microphones to attest that all good Muslims were "sickened" by the attack, "just like everyone else."SnipMemo to the BBC: The killers were shouting "Allahu...

    'They came from every generation and faith. But in bright Bank Holiday sunshine they united to pay their respects. From the closest of relatives to complete strangers, thousands have visited the makeshift shrine near Woolwich Barracks, marking the scene where Drummer Lee Rigby was killed by cleaver-wielding fanatics last Wednesday. His killers said they were acting in the name of Allah – but yesterday Muslims bowed their heads in prayer to honour the victim’s memory, and reject the vile hatred of those who butchered him in broad daylight. Heads bowed and hands together, these men paid their respects to the...

    BBC News political editor Nick Robinson apologized last week for originally identifying the London stabbing as having a “Muslim appearance” based on quotes given to him by law enforcement. Appearing on the News at Six the day of the Woolwich attack, Robinson explained that his law enforcement sources told him the perpetrator was of “Muslim appearance” and had reportedly been shouting “Allahu Akbar,” the Arabic phrase for “God is great.” The report apparently generated controversy, especially within the United Kingdom’s Muslim community, who felt the comment represented an unfair “racist generalization.” Several days later, Robinson took to the BBC website...
