We were warned!

Back in 2008, the then Bishop of Rochester, the Rt Rev Michael Nazir-Ali, created a bit of a stir when he claimed that "Islamic extremists have created "no-go" zones across Britain where it is too dangerous for non-Muslims to enter". Some agreed while others differed to the point of rubbishing his remarks, most notably the Muslim Council of Britain. From the evidence presented in a recent French TV broadcast, Bishop Nazir-Ali was correct in his warning.

Although I am not familiar with the London Borough of Tower Hamlets itself, I have no reason to think that the programme was biased. Other media coverage, particularly of the Mayoral election process, highlights worrying influences. More information can easily be found on the internet, including a reference to "the loathsome Andrew Gilligan" indicating the amount of politicking involved there. Manipulation for political advantage aside, the more one reads, the uglier it looks with echoes of the reference to taqiyya in the video highlighted in my previous post.

Bishop Nazir-Ali, the only Asian bishop in the Church of England, warned in The Telegraph "that attempts are being made to give Britain an increasingly Islamic character by introducing the call to prayer and wider use of Sharia law, a legal system based on the Koran." Looking around I see plenty of evidence to support his view from the now familiar Muslim dress and occupation of redundant churches and chapels to the defence of their faith at the cost of others. Is that a sign of our religious tolerance or our complacency?

  1. One day the Brits are going to wake up to the call to prayer from Canterbury Cathedral Tower and then what?
    A terrible darkness is coming over Western Europe and no one wants to see it.
    It's not nearly so bad here in the U.S. but it's slowly heading there.
    War is coming whether it is wanted or not. How prepared are you in England?

  2. Dear Matthew the Curmudgeon: Sadly, the answer is, we are not prepared. There might still be time, but it involves one of my little beliefs... Hope Webmaster accepts lengthy explanation.

    Ever heard of the 1917 apparitions at a hamlet in Portugal called Fatima? The Virgin Mary asked one of its visionaries to obtain from the Papacy the consecration of Russia to Mary's Immaculate Heart. (Order comes from her Higher Command, as She does nothing by Her own merits.)

    If you're not RC, this will be double-dutch to you, but it's easy enough to grasp if you look into it. For various reason, the consecration has still not been done properly although some Pope's have tried. It's getting them dissident bishops to agree to meet up together with the rest, I think, plus some stirring from the politically correct brigade worried about offending our Orthodox brethren with a Heavenly blessing...If you are interested, I recommend John de Marchi's book,"The True Story of Fatima", written by a doctor who interviewed witnesses, as a simple introduction. Available from Fr. Gruner website.

    If you are willing to read a lot of footnotes, Antonio Socci's, "The Fourth Secret of Fatima" explains a good deal of what hasn't happened and why. Personally, I was gripped from page one but I needed de Marchi's book in the other hand, and Lucia's Memoirs balancing on my knee! I hate most modern cliches but sometimes have to use one: mind-blowing stuff. And if you are wondering, yes, it is all relevant to what this blog has said.
