Islamophobia has “passed the dinner-table test” and is seen by many as normal and uncontroversial, Baroness Warsi will say in a speech on Thursday. The minister without portfolio will also warn that describing Muslims as either “moderate” or “extremist” fosters growing prejudice.
This may surprise you, but broadly, I agree with her. There is no doubt however that we face a serious problem in this country with a large Muslim population. In 2001, there were 1.6 million Muslims in Britain. Last year there were 2.9 million. Not a big difference I hear you say. But it is an increase of 81%. Now if we extrapolate that figure roughly until 2050, then the Muslim population of Britain will be 31 MILLION. Now in a time when the 'native' population of Britain is shrinking or at the very best staying level, that becomes a huge pressure group. Whether these increases come about because of immigration or a higher birth rate, I don't know, I don't have the figures, but if it's immigration then we must do something now, because I for one, don't want to see my country swamped by immigrants who won't, or are unable to adopt our host culture for whatever reason.
So, why do I say I broadly agree.? Well I think it's time we, the people, had a debate in this country how we want to proceed. Not by politicians, at least the ones who currently run our country, nor the Monarchy and the Establishment whose traitorous deeds have sold us down the river to the EU, but, the people. If that means that new political parties and leaders emerge whether through the ballot box or by protest, so be it. Muslims, at least in my limited experience, perhaps do not integrate well but work hard to run businesses and I would imagine pay what tax is due. They are in your face and I know that there are one or two suicide bombers, but how many of them are people with the intellectual capacity to know the difference between right or wrong is debatable, but you would always fight a Muslim on a one to one basis. They do not control, Banks, the Media and Western Governments. I'm sure you know where I'm going with this, so I won't persist!
BUT THE DAY IS COMING, I THINK, WHEN HARD CHOICES ARE GOING TO HAVE BE MADE AND IN 40 YEARS, THE MUSLIMS MIGHT BE OUR ALLIES.
