A Totalitarian and Fascistic Political, Religious, and Supremacist Ideology
aka: The Religion of Peace

"And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man's hand against him"  (Genesis 16:12).

"For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.
Not as Cain, who was of the wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him?

Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous
(1 John 3:11-12).

"It becomes important for us to clarify to the West in unequivocal terms - yet again - why we hate you and why we fight you ...
We hate you first and foremost, because you are disbelievers, you reject the oneness of Allah ...
The fact is ... our primary reason for hating you will not cease to exist until you embrace Islam.
Even if you were to pay jizyah and live under the authority of Islam in humiliation, we would continue to hate you ...
there is indeed a rhyme to our terrorism, warfare, ruthlessness, and brutality"

"Our politicians ... fear the criticism of the liberal-left minority (including the liberal-left media)
more than they do either the threat of terrorism or the wrath of the great British public.
Until that changes, expect to see many, many more incidents like the one on Friday" [source].

"There is a terrible irony in that this convicted Islamist [sic] terrorist was attending an event organised by do-gooders on the theme of rehabilitation.
People have died because of the actions of soft liberals within the judicial system" [comment at source].



London Bridge Fishmongers' Hall Jihad Attack

"Nothing has changed. Wahhibism and Deobandi mosques continue to grow and operate uncontrolled whilst their Madrasses and Islamic schools continue to brainwash the next generation of terrorists. The future of the UK and most of Europe is Sharia"
[comment at source].

"The real cause of the latest atrocity has been around for nigh on fourteen centuries: Islam itself. Anyone who claims this belief system - which mandates terror and death or subjugation for non-believers - is a 'religion of peace' is either ignorant of its tenets or mendacious. There's no middle ground on this. Peaceful verses in the Koran? Yes, abrogated by the later, violent, Medinan verses. Violence in the Torah and the Gospels? Yes, descriptive not prescriptive.  The Judeo-Christian texts contain nothing like the open-ended commands for violence against unbelievers that you find in Islamic scriptures. The Crusades? A reaction against four centuries of Islamic aggression and conquest.  The Inquisition? An episode arising from Roman Church politics, not supported or sanctioned by anything in the Gospels. In short, expect there to be a flood of whataboutery and logical fallacies (the attacker wasn't a 'real' muslim ... ) to exculpate Islam from its foundational role in this and all the other terrorist atrocities we've seen"
[comment at source].

"In truth, Islamism [sic] is a violent, irrational and supremacist ideology that has taken root in many settings and countries since the 7th century. The idea that modern political events can explain the actions inspired by it is deeply ahistorical, parochial and ignorant" [comment at source].

"[T]hey are following the injunctions of the Qur'an and the example of Mohammed, who that same Qur'an declares is an 'excellent pattern' of conduct (Surah All-'Ahzab v.21). And it is Mohammed who declared, 'I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them' (Surah 8:12). Western liberals and leftists who think that pious Muslims have misconstrued Islam are saying that they are better interpreters of the Qur'an than was Mohammed"
[comment at source].

"[T]his guy like so many others is simply being a good Muslim and faithfully following the orders of a murderous psychopath"  /  "True Islam IS Radical. It is an evil scourge which codifies and enshrines the most primal passions in humans and presents the ideology as a religion" [comments at source].

"Wherever there are muslims in countries dumb enough to take them in, you can be guaranteed that they are stockpiling weapons, making bombs, drawing up plans, teaching their kids to fight and working every day towards their positions of power over the infidel"  /  "We all know the danger of the moslem. We choose to do nothing about it"  /  "Islamic terror is desired by the EU electors, to keep Western European peoples in constant shock and awe. As [the] pretext to globalistic totalitarianism"
[comments at source].

"Where there are moslems, there will be bombings, shootings, knife attacks, acid attacks, truck attacks, and other mayhem and atrocities. Barbarians will be barbarians. Recognizing that fact is not phobic. It is simply being realistic. These particular moslems are already proven terrorists, and after being imprisoned they're angrier than ever at the infidels ... Governments everywhere are intentionally blind to the fact that moslems and civilisation do not mix"
[comment at source].

"This inability to talk openly about Islamist [sic] terror is truly shocking"
[comment at source].


Learning Together

The underlying belief of Learning Together and other such deradicalisation programmes is Jean-Jacques Rousseau's 'inherent goodness of humanity' and 'the noble savage' , and the outworkings of this - certainly in so far as it applies to Muslim Jihadis like Usman Khan - can be seen in today's Politically Correct doctrine of Identity Politics (see the relevant section below).  Unfortunately, this nice but nave view is at serious odds with what God: the Creator, Judge, and Saviour of humanity has to say in His Word...  "There is none that doeth good, no, not one" (Psalms 14:3; 53:3; Romans 3:10,12) and "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23).

Whilst it is absolutely true that some released criminals can, and do, turn their lives around and subsequently become productive members of society, this is very, very rare where Islamic Jihadi terrorists are concerned, who "are not the same as other prisoners" (see the articles in this section).  God never speaks of 'deradicalisation' or even 'rehabilitation' in the Bible.  What He does speak of is salvation: "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son [the Lord Jesus Christ, the Messiah], that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world though Him might be saved" (John 3:16-17).

"One of the common failings among honorable people is a failure to appreciate how thoroughly dishonorable some other people can be, and how dangerous it is to trust them" (Thomas Sowell)  /  "That is so true and I can attest to it. I spent most of my life assuming most people were honest and had good intentions... boy was I wrong!!!" [comment at source].

"Jack Merritt was a 25-year-old Cambridge criminology graduate and an administrator of the 'Learning Together' programme. He had written the dissertation for his Doctorate of Philosophy on the 'over-representation' in the British prison system of young ethnic-minority males, such as Usman Khan. He had apparently donated to a charity fun run by two Cambridge professors that raised money to buy a laptop for Usman Khan. Usman Khan used that laptop to explore his continuing-education interest in global jihad, and then he asked permission to go to Fishmongers' Hall in London to attend the 'Learning Together' anniversary event. Jack Merritt saw Usman Khan as his friend, proof of the validity of his thesis, a testament to the success of the programme. Usman Khan saw Jack Merritt as the other, the infidel. So he killed him"

"'Poster boy for deradicalisation' Khan had previously attended events run by Learning Together - an organisation that works with Cambridge University linking ex-prisoners with students. Both those elements worked out well. For further irony, Khan killed Jack Merritt, who co-ordinated the conference. Did Merritt invite Khan I wonder? I suspect we will never know" [comments at source].

"The killer was actually attending a rehabilitation conference at Fishmongers Hall near London Bridge. You might hope that this fact alone would cause those who advocate this soft approach to law enforcement to question their beliefs. No such luck. The chattering classes stubbornly insist that getting tough with criminals is not the answer. Even the father of one of the victims has declared that he 'would not wish the death of his son to be used as the pretext for more draconian sentences or for detaining people unnecessarily.'  Do those 'experts' charged with running our criminal justice system actually know how to fight crime?"  /  "I imagine the son might have voiced a contrary opinion had he survived the atrocity" [comments at source].

"There are so many highly intelligent professors and experts involved in this that I wonder how it is that they appear unable to comprehend one simple fact: To participate in a deradicalisation programme you have to be a radical in the first place, and a radical is hardly likely to change his mindset in a question and answer session over tea and biscuits. Before I retired I took part in sessions with my employer like this where your opinions are meant to be reformed and you just nod your head and give the right answers - not always, but then you miss out on tea and biscuits. More often they simply coach the person involved how to dupe the system. In dealing with terrorists they are completely out of their depth"  /  "Does Cambridge University have a case to answer for being an accessory to murder?" [comments at source].

"Forgiveness in this sense is becoming a problem, it ushers in leniency and we must resist this ... these Islamics HATE US, no amount of rehab and kind words is going to change their minds and we want a government that prioritises our safety over the rights of the terrorists. It is not another crime, they are waging war and they have to be dealt with as the enemies they are"  /  "Some ordinary criminals are amenable and suitable for rehabilitation programmes, and I'm with Jack and his father on that and laud them for it. They deserve our best efforts to wean them off offending and onto a productive life. However, fundamentalists ... are not ordinary offenders in any sense. They cannot be persuaded that there is a better way, and it is futile to try. Just as it is futile to try to persuade a wild animal that they should be nice to humans. Instead we cage them or isolate them from their vulnerable victims"  /  "One obvious lesson to Learn Together for any such future events is to have a few hefty gentlemen with bulges in their jackets discretely seated at the back. But I doubt that any will be willing to learn" [comments at source].

"These programs, such as Jack Merritt were a part of, are doomed to failure when dealing with terrorists. Terrorism is a different sort of crime than those committed by other criminals in that it has, ipso facto, an ideological basis, and a theological one in the case of Islamism [sic]. To 'de-radicalise' an Islamist [sic] requires convincing him that he's doing Islam all wrong. There is nothing he would accept as authoritative that shows that because he isn't a 'radical', he's a fundamentalist following the first principles of the faith in the Qur'an, the Hadith and the Sunna. Until the establishment will admit that to themselves the 'de-radicalisation' strategies will never work as they're currently based on a wishful thinking narrative that Islamists [sic] have strayed from and are following a twisted, perverted new version of Islam. But they're not, they're following the original, 'pure' faith" [comment at source].

"Chanting the old 'prison makes bad people worse' mantra, the Left would have us believe that criminals are basically decent chaps who have made wrong choices in life and could become useful and productive members of society, if only the small minded law abiding people would give them a chance. Similarly, the de-radicalisers imagine they can persuade the jihadi that 'true Islam' does not call for him to slay the infidel"  /  "[T]here should be no expectation that these terrorists can be de-radicalised, when prison reinforces their belief" [comments at source].

"The lad who who got killed wrote a Masters Degree thesis paper titled, 'A Critical Analysis of the Over-Representation of Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic Males Aged 18-21 in the British Prison System'... 'For whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he reap also' "
[viewers' comments at source].


The Criminal Justice System

"Let out onto the streets having only served half of his original prison term. With no effective monitoring whilst the secret services are spending millions on keeping tracks of the 'far right'"
[comment at source].

"Those who allowed early release of this person are directly responsible for the murders he committed. And they should be punished accordingly"  /  "Our criminal justice system consistently fails to rehabilitate criminals. Is it surprising then that they also fail to 'de-radicalise' a jihadi?"  /  "So will this finally be 'enough is enough'? Don't hold your breath. Poor police and CPS. They got the terrorist to court. The jury convicted him. The judge jailed him, and then the 'system' took the p*** and let him out after 50% sentence served without even reviewing it! ... Terrorists are not ordinary criminals" 
[comments at source].

"And yet, despite all the obvious dangers, most of which the authorities are of course aware, European governments are going ahead with the releases. Don't European governments care about the safety and security of their citizens any more?"
[comment at source].

"If a builder constructed a tower block and it collapsed ending the lives of the people who lived there that builder would be held responsible and prosecuted - why should this principle not apply to those in the judiciary and probation services etc who are responsible for allowing these dangerous fanatics free?"
[comments at source].

"The ball was dropped long ago by whatever bunch of clowns - who must have had no understanding of the psychopathology that is Islam - introduced the prison deradicalisation programme which is and always has been an absolute farce - a sop to pacify all the bleeding heart snowflakes and parliamentary vote whores who refuse to grasp the real bullet"
[comment at source].

"Find me the leftist who argues for the early release of Anders Breivik" [comment at source].



Taqiyya: The Islamic Doctrine of Lying and Deceit

"War is deceit" [Mohammed].

"It isn't rocket science to say all the right things is it?!! I'm sure this guy didn't admit that he was intending to stab innocent men and women on his release"  /  "Surely any lawyer worth their salt should have been aware of the Muslim edict of Taqiyya whereby it is not only permitted but it is required of a believer to lie in the advancement of Islam? Or is it possible that the lawyer Vajahat Sharif was aware but chose to ignore this fact in the name of Allah?" [comments at source].

"Yes, it is known in Islam as 'taqiyya'. It refers to the religiously approved method of deceiving and lying through your teeth to non-Muslims in order to hoodwink them as to your true intention of spread[ing] the ideology of Islam and removing any obstacles to that aim. This is common knowledge on the internet but apparently no western politician, academic, newspaper editor or left-wing Islamic apologist has ever heard of it - or if they have, they all prefer to ignore it and pretend it does not exist. Just like they spent years repeating the mantra 'Islam is a religion of peace' regardless of how many murderous atrocities are carried out in its name by, mostly, men yelling Allahu Akbar. Or the endless stream of Islamic adherents assuring us that the West will eventually be dominated by Islam and Sharia Law. But regardless, no notice was ever taken by those who are supposed to be in charge of decision making, and Muslim immigration is permitted to continue unabated. I've no idea how to force the authorities to take their heads out of their derrieres and start dealing with the reality they have created"
[comment at source].

"What - a Moslem lying to the kuffar? No - don't believe it... can't be true!"  /  "Well frankly I am shocked! You mean to tell me that your client elected not to tell you that his real intention was to brutally murder as many infidels as possible upon his release? What is the world coming to when you can't trust a convicted terrorist?"  /  "Is the lawyer also Islamic? If so, then there was no deception. The lawyer knew exactly what was going to happen"  /  "Is that lawyer an Islamist [sic]? If so, he could be practising a bit of taqiyya himself. If not, how appallingly ignorant of that lawyer to demonstrate a lack of understanding of Islamists [sic] and taqiyya. High time that everybody knew that Islamists [sic] are allowed to lie to further the cause of Islam" [comments at source].

"Bloodthirsty Muslims deceive people? never heard of such a thing"  /  "Deception?? Taqiya?? It seems some people ... have STILL learned nothing about the death cult known as Islam"
[comments at source].


The Politics of Grief

"The sad thing is Mr Merritt is so satisfied in his ideological ignorance not even having his son brutally murdered is enough to make him reassess his beliefs"  /  "Virtue signalling kills. Destroys, maims. You feel good and the BBC and the cold hearted university robots will cheer you on, but your 'nobility' sent others ... to their graves and the survivors into hell"  /  "And as for those who rally round to give us all a good telling off, have the last word, close us down by using the hate tag?... The irony is, I had only seen outpourings of kindness towards the relatives and the victims, including this gifted young man"
[comments at source].

"However much one sympathises with Jack Merritt's parents, one must also acknowledge that the dangerous naivety displayed by both father and son put Jack in harm's way"  /  "I'm very sorry for their loss - it's just about the worst thing in the world which can happen too any parent. The grief will be visceral for a long time. Several significant anniversaries and family events will go by in the ensuing years without their son and they'll drift into old age inevitably wondering ... whether the rehabilitation and care of vicious criminals and terrorists was reason enough for their son to die" [comments at source].

"Mr Merritt is clearly so ideologically possessed that he can't direct his anger at the man who actually killed his son - it would mean facing the fact that both his and his son's ideas were wrong. Thus he's clutching at straws for an alternative he feels comfortable with. He's entitled to express his grief as he sees fit, of course, but he doesn't have the right to gamble with the lives of others to save himself from the discomfort of cognitive dissonance"  /  "The take-home message is that like father, like son, the sadly deceased man so full of promise, energy and hope was doomed to a narrow ideological world view which ultimately became self-defeating. In having been raised with this shallow and naive ideology, the young Merritt was misguided and put in harm's way, rather than taught to be skeptical and ultra cautious about the motives of others. Like any other form of predation, Islamic terrorism is a fact of life and rendering it a 'protected species' ... is going to result in deaths"
[comments at source].

"I can't help but think that maybe this poor man can't direct his anger at his son's killer because he may then have to face the fact that he imparted his ideas to his son in the first place"  /  "The murder was predictable. That neither father nor son accepted this makes it no less true. Had Jack Merritt not been hacked, stabbed and bled to death, had he survived his stint at the sharp end of his profession, he would have been extolling the righteousness of his beliefs. Had Khan survived no doubt the mad card would have come out, and he would have continued to extol the righteousness of his beliefs"
[comments at source].

"We all deal with grief in different ways but this is quite astounding. Where's the anger for the murderer of his son and the hateful ideology that inspired it?"  /  "Jack may have been 'fine' and 'principled', but tragically he was wrong"  /  "What sort of a father is David Merritt that he isn't angry at the man that killed his son and the ideology that spawned him? If you want to see hate, look there and not at the so-called 'right-wing' media, political parties and people reacting with righteous anger to the terror attack" [comments at source]. 

"I fear he's in denial about his role in this appalling tragedy. His son, at 23 [sic], was still maturing. His idealism suggests someone desperate to achieve some kind of catharsis and a parent would normally try to temper this passion with a little sensible dialogue. I certainly would never have wanted either of my daughters anywhere near such an experimental organisation. It was plainly amateurish and extremely naive. What parent wants to admit their own failings after such a tragedy?"
[comment at source].

"Given the father's response to his son's death, I think it's obvious where Jack got his misguided liberal attitudes. I hate to criticise a grieving father but I just find his response so weird. Is this a symptom of Western decline? Raise your kids to support criminals and then not even show any anger towards said criminals when they murder your kids? And not only that, but subsequently direct your misplaced [anger] at an imaginary enemy, in this case the 'right-wing' media and politicians. How strange"  /  "What kind of father indeed? To detach himself from mourning the loss of his son in order to instead give voice not only to what he imagines his son might say but also to a pathology that has irresistibly gripped and warped his psyche. Moreover, what is wrong with hating the barbarism that took his son's life?" [comments at source].

"I am sorry for the two students who were murdered on Friday, but they and their families (unbelievably) are delusional, and their delusional world view has killed their own and still they don't question the delusion, which being the current orthodoxy puts me and mine at risk too. What will it take, if not the murder of your own child, to see reality?"  /  "I find the father of the murdered man railing at Boris for his condemnation of the system a bit odd. Idealism is nearly always exploited by the wicked. This father's refusal to face facts is worrying for his mental health. Feeling deceived and angry would be more rational and helpful to him in the long term. And his son will have died in vain if the system isn't strengthened and sentencing made much tougher" [comments at source].

"There will be empty chairs round the Christmas table in two English households now and forever. And it behooves us to be sympathetic to and indulgent of those whose grief takes incoherent forms ... Jack Merritt's father reacted to his son's murder by Tweeting that 'my son was a beautiful spirit who took the side of the underdog'. The 'beautiful spirit' was, like Waugh's prison governor, in the grip of delusions. But Dave Merritt was mourning for his son, and seeking to give his lost life some meaning"

"The father's virtue signalling about his son's murder, just turns my stomach. Somehow that is even worse than when politicians use a tragedy"  /  "The father of the male victim is so brainwashed that not even the murder of his own son deprogrammed him"  /  "That father is going to have a tough time when he finally realises his own role in his son's death"  /  "The father of the male victim is riddled with anti-white sickness"  /  "Imagine being so 'woke' you're willing to sacrifice your child. This is a religion, and it's the religion of the Aztecs"  /  "Cuckoldry of the highest level"  /  "'The liberal system cries out in pain as it struggles to keep up the charade' " [viewers' comments at source].

"The father is in a minority, most people will want much longer sentences, or preferably repatriation to country of origin"  /  "I have friends like the victim's parents. Ostrich parasitic syndrome and 1984 in full flow"  /  "When the father is left afraid and alone in his dotage in an old people's home lying in his own s*** for three days by his ethnic carers then perhaps he'll finally get it"  /  "David Merritt, I hope that one day you remember you love your son more than diversity"  /  "Don't use my son for your agenda, I wish to use him for mine"  /  "It's astonishing that the father considered the 'underdog' in this scenario [to be] the Islamist [sic], and not his butchered son. Absolutely mind-boggling"  /  "Reminds me of the Mollie Tibbets case in the US. Her family came out denouncing 'racists' after she was murdered by an illegal ... I feel for those middle class lefties. They're being killed by something they're told to love and even in the thick of heartache they can't address the truth"  /  "And the father does on Twatter afterwards to continue tweeting more leftist rubbish... no anger, just complaining that the Tories are making it into a campaigning issue. Who the hell goes on Twitter when their son has been murdered?"
[viewers' comments at source].

"[Jack] Merritt's family urged the public not o use his death as a justification for the kinds of 'punitive' sentencing he fought against. His father immediately launched a preemptive rant against anyone who should point out the dangers of pathological altruism, despite its proven and obvious fatal results. The MSM is parroting this inhuman reaction as though it's wonderful. What hope is there when your own father holds your life so cheap?"  /  "The father of Jack Merritt is a despicable narcissist. The man would rather garner twitter approval by complaining about the Tories all day and pushing the same ideology that got his son killed. Even as his son lies dead this disgusting man can't bring himself to take a break from social media and stop collecting internet points"
[viewers' comments at source].

"The father of the man that was murdered by this evil man is so far down ... the hole of brainwashery there is no return for him, the soy cucked following has their nails dug so deep, there is no coming back"  /  "About the father of this victim: a lot of these people are like rats with Toxoplasmosis ... some kind of virus that reprogrammes their brains into feeling an irresistible attraction about things that will most likely kill them. Like when you are a scandinavian girl, go hiking in Morocco"  /  "Pretending like others are jealous of 'diversity' and the catastrophic consequences it's created is ludicrous ... No unique peoples in their right mind chooses to destroy themselves, children, future generations, culture, way of live and thousands years old Civilisation within their own Homeland. These situations happen all the time now"

The Politicians

"When are our mad rulers going to admit the truth? Terrorism is not crime - it is war. Our enemies are at wear with us. Just how many of our people have to die before this sinks in?" [comment at source].

"The gross disregard and naivety with which Western politicians et al embrace Islam and steadfastly disregard its long, 1400 year history of extreme violence against all non-Muslims and its obsession with conquering the world for Allah, leaves me totally flummoxed. I cannot understand it! And I cannot believe that our university educated politicians are so thick"
[comment at source].

"In the early hours of December 13th, one of two men will become the UK's PM: on the one hand, Jeremy Corbyn, a man whose sympathies his entire adult life have lain with terrorists, whether Irish Republican or Islamic, and who is all for early release for persons he doesn't think should be banged up in the first place; and on the other, Boris Johnson, whose party talks tough on crime, immigration, terrorism and everything else, but under whose showboating butchness nothing ever changes. Usman Khan was an ill-educated fanatic, but, up against all the sophisticated stupidity of the elites, he figured that out at least" [source].

"Does Corbyn really believe the latest terrorist attack is the consequence of western military meddling in the Middle East? I doubt it, it's just a cynical opportunity for political scoring and dog whistling to a certain community whose votes he hopes to hoover up"  /  "For a politician professing such a decidedly anti-imperialist worldview, Corbyn's view of Muslims is pompous and condescending" [comments at source].

"Yet more platitudes by our hopeless politicians"  /  "And, behold, a Labour debate wonk weighs in with 'if the Tories hadn't cut police numbers...'  I wonder how many police officers it would take to have one or two at each possible site of a terror attack (at all times). The stupidity displayed is, as usual, jaw-droppingly scary"  /  "They are also standing over the corpses and calling any criticism of the religion proof of the extreme right wing threat" [comments at source].

"Corbyn cannot make up his mind in three years if we should Brexit or not and yet he expects a Policeman to decide in a split second if a bomb vest is real or not" [comment at source].


The Mainstream Media and Press

The Guardian

"The Guardian is guilty of what they are accusing others of doing, they are the ones using these deaths as hateful propaganda"  /  "If the pharasaical left can use an autistic child to push their climate change ideals and also use the death of an MP to damn Brexit, then they'll think nothing of using the death of an innocent to promote themselves"  /  "Could one not describe the Koran as 'an agenda of hate'? Or 'The Guardian', come to that"  /  "Bizarrely, I see no mention of Johnson's primary obligation as PM to keep his people safe ... The attitudes of the lefties is utterly irrational and irresponsible"  /  "...the clear hypocrisy by elements of the media today, led as always by The Guardian and its columnists. They shriek at Johnson and the Tories for politicising these deaths and the terrorist attack that caused them whilst politicising the whole situation themselves. Yet they studiously try to avoid mentioning the cause of this terrorism or they have done everything in their power over the years to excuse it, hide its nature or even condone it" [comments at source].


"I was watching this with astonishment on the BBC news channel yesterday. Astonishment - not at the [murder] but at the deafening, mystifying silence of the reporting on it ... The level of denial was such that it was as if all wider frames of reference had been erased from the BBC brain"  [comment at source].


"A great example of the 'shutdown and cover up' was an imam who was a guest on three LBC radio shows. This imam was used by pretty much all media. He told each LBC presenter that they should not use the word 'Islamism' or 'Islamist'.  All three wondered how they were to report on specifics. 'Just call them terrorists' the imam said. One idiot presenter said, 'I'll change my words'. Another got all wobbly because he thought he was being all nice to use those words and not use 'Islam'. What the imam wants is no reference to Islam at all in such things as terror attacks ... The weakness of our media is staggering"  /  "The presenter should not have ceded any power to this representative of Islam but rather responded with 'I call the shots, not you'" [comments at source].

"'Diversity is our strength' . Perhaps the dumbest most dishonest comment in human history"
[comment at source].

"The UK is the poster child for good intentions. Virtue-signalling is a national sickness at epidemic proportions. Which is why every time Islamists [sic] destroy some of our own, instead of marching on Parliament demanding their removal from our midst, they, the young and stupid especially, stand next to them waving candles. What after all is virtue-signalling? It's all about 'hey look at how good I am, value me, praise me, tell me I'm good.'  That's called pride, and it's been satan's number one route to the ruination of men ever since Eve went scrumping. Which is why God said in relation to any charity you do, or kindness or good you do to others, it should always be done in secret and no credit ever taken for it: 'But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth' (Matthew 6:3)"  /  "Well said, and spot on. Virtue signalling is indeed one of the great human failings of our time. While it's nothing new, we seem to be facing an epidemic of it"
[comments at source].

"It's a common conceit of middle-class lefties to view Muslims as lacking all personal agency and morality to the extent that the war in Iraq would leave them with absolutely no option but to violently attack non-believers ... It's true the left accuses others of what they themselves are most guilty of"
[comment at source]

"[Mr Merritt] was then invited to write a column for The Guardian: 'Jack would be livid his death has been used to further an agenda of hate.'  Why is it necessary for Merritt Sr to damn those who disagree with him and his late son as 'furthering an agenda of hate' ? Why couldn't it just be a public policy dispute - about cautious and responsible approaches to crime, immigration, social tranquillity, multiculturalism?"

"It seems odd that Mr Merritt and the leftists marshalling his pain into public life should refer to the London Bridge terrorist attack as a mere incident while referring to tabloid coverage as an 'agenda of hate'. This is moral inversion. One could be forgiven for thinking that the true hatred from this affair is coming from the newspapers rather than from an Islamist [sic] ideology that openly advocates the slaughter of innocents and the degradation of Western society. Apparently, it is people's anger over terrorism that is hateful, more so than the terrorism itself"

"If anything can be said for certain about Jack Merritt's short life, it's that in the end he wasn't terribly good at recognizing who the real 'haters' are. Nor is his father, who seems to think they're Nigel and Boris, Tories, 'Islamophobes'. So who actually is the hater here? If you happen to think that bollards and de-radicalisation programmes are insufficient to the situation, Dave Merritt will label your difference of opinion as 'an agenda of hate'. Which is one reason why the bollardization of everything is all we get. The determination to denounce everything other than diversity blather as an 'agenda of hate' is a big part of why we're where we are today. We need a broader conversation than Dave Merritt seems willing to permit, which mean there will be more Jack Merritts"

"[Usman] was on benefits apparently. So now we're paying terrorists to murder us ... What do a few murders matter next to the all-important agenda to promote tolerance, diversity and inclusiveness?"

The Scorpion...

"A scorpion, which cannot swim, asks a frog to carry it across a river on its back. The frog hesitates, afraid of being stung by the scorpion, but the scorpion argues that if it did that, they would both drown. The frog considers this argument sensible and agrees to transport the scorpion, but midway across the river the scorpion stings the frog anyway, dooming them both. The dying frog asks the scorpion why it stung despite knowing the consequence, to which the scorpion replies: 'I couldn't help it. It's in my nature'."


...And The Snake

"On her way to work one morning, Down the path along side the lake, A tender-hearted woman saw a poor half frozen snake,
His pretty colored skin had been all frosted with the dew. 'Poor thing', she cried, 'I'll take you in and I'll take care of you'

"'Take me in tender woman, Take me in, for heaven's sake. Take me in, tender woman', sighed the snake...

"She wrapped him up all cozy in a comforter of silk, And laid him by her fireside with some honey and some milk.
She hurried home from work that night and soon as she arrived, She found that pretty snake she'd taken to had been revived.

"'Take me in tender woman, Take me in, for heaven's sake. Take me in, tender woman', sighed the snake...

"She clutched him to her bosom, 'You're so beautiful' she cried, 'But if I hadn't brought you in by now you might have died'
She stroked his pretty skin again and kissed and held him tight. Instead of saying thanks, the snake gave her a vicious bite.

"'Take me in tender woman, Take me in, for heaven's sake. Take me in, tender woman', sighed the snake...

"'I saved you' cried the woman, 'And you've bitten me, but why? You know your bite is poisonous and now I'm going to die'
'Oh shut up, silly woman' said the reptile with a grin. 'You knew damn well I was a snake before you took me in.'

"'Take me in tender woman, Take me in, for heaven's sake. Take me in, tender woman', sighed the snake...
"'Take me in tender woman, Take me in, for heaven's sake. Take me in, tender woman', sighed the snake..."


A Small Dose of Facts and History

"Before the angry and accurate responses to Friday's atrocity on and about London Bridge reach a crescendo and are officially designated as 'wrongthink' followed by inevitable screams of Islamophobia! from the protected collective entity ultimately responsible, perhaps a small dose of facts and history may help level the playing field.

"The noun 'Islamophobia' is a compound oxymoron concocted to obfuscate historic reality and it is the obverse of the same propaganda coin the face of which reads 'Religion of Peace'. Consider: how could such a long, fully documented record of fourteen centuries of relentless Islamic aggression during which Muslims launched Jihad after Jihad spreading death and atrocity far and wide across the globe now be ignored in order to promote a revisionist dialogue which is the antithesis of recorded fact?

"Europe alone was assaulted on every quarter from Iceland to Scotland and England to Scandinavia and the Low Countries; from Spain to France to the Balkans and Austria.  The devastation caused by this incessant slaughter and the after-effects of Islam's scorched earth policy was immense and rendered vast swathes of Europe uninhabitable. According to some sources it was during these periods that approximately 15 million Europeans, close to 20% of a population of roughly 78 million, were either killed outright, starved to death, died of disease spread through displacement or were taken and sold into predominantly sexual slavery in the Souks of Arabia and the Barbary Coast.

"The Italian scholar Franco Cardini wrote 'If we ask ourselves how and when the modern notion of Europe and the European identity was born, we realise the extent to which Islam was a factor (albeit a negative one) in its creation. Repeated Muslim aggression against Europe between the seventh to eighth centuries, then between the fourteenth and the eighteenth centuries was the "violent midwife" to Europe'.

"That we Europeans became less involved in internecine conflicts and more militantly oriented beyond our borders is not an indictable action but a natural product of the will to survive and a growing awareness that offence is the best form of defence. It was not a case of the West being the aggressor and Islam the victim as the cultural relativism narrative would have us believe; if anyone has a grievance to air it is the West, not the demented slaves of Allah in the occupied territories now established from Londonistan to Glasgow and blighting the whole face of Europe as if a human pox.

"Remember, nothing in Islam changes and in the final analysis we would be mad to accept the claim that we Westerners are in any way responsible for the current state of affairs other than that in our sublime stupidity and fear of being labelled 'Racist!' we have allowed our corrupted academic and political classes to physically impose this pre-medieval abomination upon us without much more than a fearful murmur of disapproval.

"Thus, now we are fighting another battle in a war that has rumbled on for 1400 years, a battle we are losing because those who should be defending us - including the Church and the State & its Executive Arms - are instead close-ranking with the enemy and conspiring to prevent us from fighting back with the ruthless efficiency that, thanks to Islam, became an abiding and sustaining characteristic of our culture" [comment at source].


The Stinging Nettle Patch

"The stinging nettle patch which a few years ago was behind the greenhouse has taken over half the flowerbeds and much of the lawn. It is thought that in a few more years the nettles, fed by a weekly application of nutritious 'Benefit Grow', will have engulfed the entire garden and have reached the front door of the house.

"The gardeners remain relaxed and are not concerned about the changes to the flora and landscape. They had a meeting today and decided to take no action other than to watch the nettles grow and to increase surveillance.

"The Head Gardener, Bo, was particularly insistent that stinging nettles are peaceful and a great plant and for equality and diversity reasons their cultivation in the garden should in no way be discriminated against in favour of flowers, vegetables or fruit, and that people who say anything unpleasant about them will be severely stung and hung out on the washing line to dry in the sun.

"Visitors will note that the bunny rabbits which used to nibble dandelion leaves and play on the lawn have fled to the adjacent field, and that the flock of 650 ostriches in the play areas have buried their heads in the sand, to avoid the sight of the advancing wall of nettles, as they do anyway at all times of the year.

"Please follow further updates from the garden as the season progresses" [comment at source].

"The contemporary master gardeners of the yard, many of whom earned degrees in cultivation from the (haha) elite institutions of the land, have completely failed to discern the deadly kind from the desired ones. Way past time to uproot and dispose of them with the weeds" [comment at source].


The Curse of Cain

"After Cain killed his brother, the Lord told him, ... 'Cursed shall you be from the earth', ... and so it has been. The earth under their feet may be cursed, it yields nothing but sand and thistles, ... They become worshippers of death dreaming of the green verdant fields of paradise which they can reach only if they kill enough men, women and children. Leaving devastation behind them, dead lands, lost cultures, widows and orphans, they claw their way up to heaven on a ladder of bones. Everything around them dies until the only green is on their flags. They are cursed from the earth and they curse the earth. Where they go, the world dies. ... Cain sows fields of corpses of the innocent for the Lord and he still does not understand why his sacrifice is not accepted and why the earth he dwells on is cursed. ...  From Iraq to Iran, from Kuwait to Saudi Arabia, from Nigeria to Somalia, from Pakistan to Indonesia, he holds up human heads and cries 'Allahu Akbar'. ... There is no room for Cain anywhere. Where he remains there will be death and suffering. He will kill because it is all he can do. He has nothing else to offer the world, his own kind, or the Creator.. ... He kills from one end of the world to the next and it is never his fault. Each time, each Abel did it. ... His code is cruelty and his holy book is written in blood on the flayed skins of his murdered victims. ... The cries of peoples long vanished from the earth warn us that we will either drive out Cain or his curse will fill our lands with blood and dust and all that we love and all that we have worked for will die at his cursed touch" [source].


The Burden Which Habakkuk the Prophet Saw

The righteous cry out for God's punishment of the injustice in their lands:
O LORD, how long shall I cry, and thou wilt not hear! even cry out unto thee of violence, and thou wilt not save!
Why dost thou show me iniquity, and cause me to behold grievance? for spoiling and violence are before me: and there are that raise up strife and contention.
Therefore the law is slacked, and judgment doth never go forth: for the wicked doth compass about the righteous; therefore wrong judgment proceedeth.

The LORD God answers:
Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvellously: for I will work a work in your days, which ye will not believe, though it be told you.
For, lo, I raise up the Chaldeans, that bitter and hasty nation, which shall march through the breadth of the land, to possess the dwelling places that are not theirs.
They are terrible and dreadful: their judgment and their dignity shall proceed of themselves.
Their horses also are swifter than the leopards, and are more fierce than the evening wolves:
And their horsemen shall spread themselves, and their horsemen shall come from far; they shall fly as the eagle that hasteth to eat.
They shall come all for violence: their faces shall sup up as the east wind, and they shall gather the captivity as the sand.
And they shall scoff at the kings, and the princes shall be a scorn unto them: they shall deride every strong hold; for they shall heap dust, and take it.
Then shall his mind change, and he shall pass over, and offend, imputing this his power unto his god.

The dismay of the righteous at God's answer:   
Art thou not from everlasting, O LORD my God, mine Holy One? we shall not die.
O LORD, thou hast ordained them for judgment; and, O mighty God, thou hast established them for correction.
Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity:
Wherefore lookest thou upon them that deal treacherously, and holdest thy tongue when the wicked devoureth the man that is more righteous than he?
They take up all of them with the angle, they catch them in their net, and gather them in their drag: therefore they rejoice and are glad.
Therefore they sacrifice unto their net, and burn incense unto their drag; because by them their portion is fat, and their meat plenteous.
Shall they therefore empty their net, and not spare continually to slay the nations?
I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved.

The LORD God's reassurance to the righteous:
And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.
For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.
Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.

[Habakkuk 1:1-2:4]


Please Pray for All Those Persecuted by Islam

There are many, many suffering brothers and sisters who desperately need us to pray for them...

"Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them;
and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body"
