Beyond the veil

"Muslim migrants 'threw Christians overboard during row on boat from Libya to Italy', say police" - The Independent

"Muslim women should be allowed to wear the veil in court, top judge suggests" - The Telegraph

Two headlines from yesterday's newspapers. Intolerance protected by tolerance. How very British, sowing the seeds of our own destruction through kindness which is not reciprocated. That is not turning the other cheek, it is turning a blind eye. The veil may or may not be a sign of oppression depending on your point of view but it has become a symbol which enables some Muslims to thumb their noses at the rest of us while they continue to press for the implementation of Sharia after being welcomed to the United Kingdom.

International lobbyist on human rights and refugee issues, Jacqueline Pascarl lived as a Muslim woman from the age of 17 until she was 22 after marrying a Malaysian prince. She explains here that it is "rubbish" that Muslim women mostly wear the burqa to express their religious devotion. Burqas, she says "reveal more about men than women".

Nevertheless, the President of the Supreme Court, Lord Neuberger, claims that judges should allow Muslim women to appear in court wearing a full-face veil. It was "crucial that courts and judges show, and be seen to show respect towards different customs". - Even if that involves tossing fellow refugees over the side for being Christians, killing at random, destroying churches and razing ancient settlements while committing "genocide of Christians in the Middle East"? That is increasingly becoming their custom towards minorities in Islamic states.

Lord Neuberger made his remarks in an address to the Criminal Justice Alliance because a judge had ruled that Muslim women wearing a veil over their face must remove it to give evidence in court although women will be allowed to wear a veil when standing trial. The ruling came after the Prime Minister’s office expressed support for allowing schools to ban students from wearing veils. A YouGov poll in 2013 showed that "61% of British adults agreed with the statement, "the burka should be banned in Britain", while about a third (32%) disagreed.

This is where it starts, learning by heart, in Arabic, the words copied by supporters of an illiterate man who claimed they had been delivered to him from God.

The results are all too obvious, among the latest in Australia where five teenagers aged 18 and 19 have been arrested in a series of raids in Melbourne for allegedly planning "atrocious" ISIS-inspired attacks on police and the public next week events in Australia on Anzac Day. Nothing it seems is sacred in Islam, except Islam.


  1. Outside a mosque in Cardiff yesterday activist Muslims were handing out leaflets telling those leaving the mosque not to vote in the forthcoming General Election (because only Allah makes laws).
    Would it not be a good idea to make voting compulsory in this country ?
    Then those Muslims wishing to enter and settle in the UK to take advantage of the good things in our country, may take the opportunity to consider whether they do truly wish to integrate into our society ,or whether they aspire to a separate life and what's more aspire to change and corrupt our society.

  2. I am just beginning - I think (I hope it's not wishful thinking) - that the general public are finally beginning to get the idea that the dear old desert religion from mecca is neither a religion, nor in any sane judgement peaceful in any way. The lamestream media have done their best to promote the lies, the propaganda and the delusions, but even they are having to report more and more atrocities, committed by one sect of **lam against another sect of **lam, let alone against peaceful Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, etc. I think we might just see the evidence having an effect on public opinion, as people in the UK begin to realise that what is happening in the hellholes of the middle east, might very soon be happening on a daily basis on our streets. It is not so long ago that the IRA was doing it, and some of us are old enough to remember the Troubles.

  3. I have often found reprieve in this blog from just the media you detailed, Voxpop. It is rather disheartening - I attend a uni in Canada, and it is astounding how well organized and shockingly funded these "student run" campus Muslim organizations are. I wish I could say that any university group is on an unilaterally equal playing field, but when the 'victim' card is levied ad nauseam, eventually others begin to repeat the message. We're a society that has grown terrified of offending anyone (look at the wake of Charlie Hebdo. Slowly, our Enlightenment values are being eroded in favour of the PC haze that claims that the West 'suppresses' Islamic women by NOT letting them wear the veil. The mental gymnastics can do your head in!) The inherently fractious, decentralized nature of **lam means that there will be endless division between the different sects, and the more opportunity for varying 'interpretations' of the Koran. And how, 'as a group' can they claim that the West is unsympathetic and are racist **slmophobes when they are leaving their Muslim countries to come live in our cities?
    Thank you Ancientblogpetros, and for your thoughts, they are a consolation on the other side of the pond against the doublespeak of the media. As for your posting, I wonder ... does anyone, anywhere, on any news channel in the UK mention Lee Rigby? I shudder when I see the unfolding crisis in Lampedusa, and wonder if anyone is brave enough to connect the dots.
