Britains Cultural Suicide

Hat Tip To Ray Boyd (see his article 2 down) and his excellent Commonsense About Islam.
How Britain, the cradle of liberty, is sleepwalking towards cultural suicide

If anyone had doubted the extent to which Britain has capitulated to Islamic terror, the banning of Geert Wilders should surely open their eyes.

Wilders, the Dutch member of parliament who had made an uncompromising stand against the Koranic sources of Islamist extremism and violence, was due to give a screening of Fitna, his film on this subject, at the House of Lords on Thursday.

This meeting had been postponed amid claims that Lord Ahmed had previously threatened the House of Lords authorities that he would bring a force of 10,000 Muslims to lay siege to the Lords if Wilders was allowed to speak.

Lord Ahmed denies this report and said his lawyers are investigating those he blames for spreading it.

To their credit, the Lords authorities had stood firm and said extra police would be drafted in to meet any threat and the Wilders meeting should go ahead.

But now the government has announced that it is banning Wilders from the country.

A letter from the Home Secretary’s office to Wilders, delivered via the British embassy in the Hague, said: '...the Secretary of State is of the view that your presence in the UK would pose a genuine, present and sufficiently serious threat to one of the fundamental interests of society.

'The Secretary of State is satisfied that your statements about Muslims and their beliefs, as expressed in your film Fitna and elsewhere would threaten community harmony and therefore public security in the UK.'

So let’s get this straight. The British government allows people to march through British streets screaming support for Hamas, it allows Hizb ut Tahrir to recruit on campus for the jihad against Britain and the west, it takes no action against a Muslim peer who threatens mass intimidation of Parliament, but it bans from the country a member of parliament of a European democracy who wishes to address the British Parliament on the threat to life and liberty in the west from religious fascism.

It is he, not them, who is considered a ‘serious threat to one of the fundamental interests of society’. Why? Because the result of this stand for life and liberty against those who would destroy them might be an attack by violent thugs.

The response is not to face down such a threat of violence but to capitulate to it instead.
It was the same reasoning that led the police on those pro-Hamas marches to confiscate the Israeli flag, on the grounds that it would provoke violence, while those screaming support for genocide and incitement against the Jews were allowed to do so.

The reasoning was that the Israeli flag might provoke thuggery while the genocidal incitement would not. So those actually promoting aggression were allowed to do so while those who threatened no-one at all were repressed.

And now a Dutch politician who doesn’t threaten anyone is banned for telling unpalatable truths about those who do; while those who threaten life and liberty find that the more they do so, the more the British government will do exactly what they want, in the interests of ‘community harmony’.

Wilders is a controversial politician, to be sure. But this is another fateful and defining issue for Britain’s governing class as it continues to sleepwalk into cultural suicide.

If British MPs do not raise hell about this banning order, if they go along with this spinelessness, if they fail to stand up for the principle that the British Parliament of all places must be free to hear what a fellow democratically elected politician has to say about one of the most difficult and urgent issues of our time, if they fail to hold the line against the threat of violence but capitulate to it instead, they will be signalling that Britain is no longer the cradle of freedom and democracy but its graveyard.

The hypocracy of Lord Ahmed is clear as he complains of the way Islam is represented in a film which excludes any input from non-muslims, portraying Islam as it exists in doctrine and practice by muslims. Ahmed could just as easily stepped up to the plate as the 'moderate muslim' he claims to be and criticize the 'misunderstanderers' (thanks to JW) of Islam portrayed in the video. Instead he chose to protect the racism and violence of Islam.

Anti-Islam’ film maker is deported
Thursday, February 12, 2009


An 'Anti-Muslim' film was shown last night WITHOUT A SINGLE PERSON DEMONSTRATING– despite its maker being banned from Britain over fears he would spark riots.
Fitna, which links terrorism to the Koran, was shown as right-wing Dutch MP Geert Wilders was turned away at Heathrow amid claims he was a threat 'to community harmony' in Britain.

There had been reports that 10,000 Muslims were ready to protest against the film but the press screening in Westminster passed without incident.

Mr Wilders, a member of Holland's Freedom Party, branded Gordon Brown the 'biggest coward in Europe'.

Speaking at Heathrow, he said freedom of speech had been 'set back centuries'.

He found an unlikely ally in Islamic firebrand Anjem Choudary, who once headed banned terrorist group al-Muhajiroun.

'Rather than banning him, it would be wiser to take part in open and public debate on Islam and whether it offers a better solution than capitalism,' he said.

'I have seen the film and some of the contents are accurate and true reflections of what Muslims believe,' he added.

And the National Secular Society said home secretary Jacqui Smith had 'patronised' Muslims by suggesting riots would break if Mr Wilders entered London.

'I think Jacqui Smith has made a grave mistake,' he added. However, Liberal Democrat home affairs spokesman Chris Huhne backed Ms Smith's decision.

Gordon Brown is indeed a brave man for standing up against hatred infested venereal (HIV) diseased person like wilders. Holland Freedom party is doomed when such a vagrant sit as its honoured member. He failed to realised that Palestinian Members of Parliament like him should have included Hamas poltician who won the general election supervised by Jimmy Carter election conducted in Palestine. How can he said Gordon Brown a coward..Wilders is the coward for not even raising the Hamas issue in the Dutch Parliament.
