By 2020, estimates are that the number of Muslims attending prayers will reach at least 683,000, while the number of Christians attending weekly Mass will drop to 679,000. “The new cultural landscape of English cities has arrived; the homogenized, Christian landscape of state religion is in retreat”, said Ceri Peach of Oxford University. While nearly half of British Muslims are under the age of 25, a quarter of Christians are over 65. “In another 20 years there are going to be more active Muslims than there are churchgoers,” said Keith Porteous Wood, director of the National Secular Society.
Since 2001, 500 London churches of all denominations have been turned into private homes. During the same period, British mosques have been proliferating. Between 2012 and 2014, the proportion of Britons who identify themselves as Anglicans fell from 21% to 17%, a decrease of 1.7 million people, while, according to a survey conducted by the respected NatCen Social Research Institute, the number of Muslims has grown by almost a million. Churchgoers are declining at a rate that within a generation, their number will be three times lower than that of Muslims who go regularly to mosque on Friday.
Demographically, Britain has been acquiring an increasingly Islamic face, in places such as Birmingham, Bradford, Derby, Dewsbury, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, Luton, Manchester, Sheffield, Waltham Forest and Tower Hamlets. In 2015, an analysis of the most common name in England showed it was Mohammed, including spelling variations such as Muhammad and Mohammad.
Most important cities have huge Muslim populations: Manchester (15.8%), Birmingham (21.8%) and Bradford (24.7%). In Birmingham, the police just dismantled a terrorist cell; there is also a greater probability that a child will be born into a Muslim family than into a Christian one. In Bradford and Leicester, half the children are Muslim. Muslims do not need to become the majority in the UK; they just need gradually to Islamize the most important cities. The change is already taking place. “Londonistan” is not a Muslim majority nightmare; it is a cultural, demographic and religious hybrid in which Christianity declines and Islam advances.
London is also full of sharia courts. There are officially 100. The advent of this parallel judicial system has been made possible thanks to the British Arbitration Act and the system of Alternative Dispute Resolution. These new courts are based on the rejection of the inviolability of human rights: the values of freedom and equality that are the basis of English Common Law.
British personalities keep opening the door to introduce sharia. One of Britain’s leading judges, Sir James Munby, said that Christianity no longer influences the courts and these must be multicultural — which means more Islamic. Rowan Williams, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, and Chief Justice Lord Phillips also suggested that British law should “incorporate” elements of sharia law. The British cultural establishment is rapidly capitulating to Islamic fundamentalists in accepting their demands.
After the attack on the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, the head of MI6, Sir John Sawers, recommended self-censorship and “some restraint” in discussing Islam. The British ambassador in Saudi Arabia, Simon Collis, converted to Islam and completed the pilgrimage to Mecca, the hajj. He now calls himself Haji Collis.
Think we’re not far behind? Take a look at the map linked here to see how many mosques there are here in the US. Bear in mind this information is two years old, so it’s likely the numbers have increased since then. Just in California and New York there are over 500 mosques in each state.
Along with the increase in the muslim population and the mosques, comes the increased efforts to force Sharia law into our courts. In 2015, a study done by the Center for Security Policy Press states that of the fifty cases examined, they found in twenty-seven of them, in twenty-three different states, the courts in question allowed the use of sharia, generally to the detriment of women and/or children whose rights under our Constitution were infringed. (Where’s the feminist outrage now?)
This suggests that the effort to invoke sharia in US courts is expanding. The study was limited to 50 cases, so the total number of such cases is surely far larger.
One website states there are 5 stages to the spread of Islam: Arrival, Recognition, Penetration, Confrontation, Imposition.
It is their opinion that we are at Stage 3 – Penetration.
When Muslims gain critical mass in a few cities, they begin to penetrate the host society. They create an alphabet soup of front and umbrella organizations that inflate their size, and use them to lobby the government, support (pro-)Muslim political candidates, conduct public relations campaigns, file lawsuits against alleged islamophobia, place imams as ‘chaplains’ in armed forces and prisons, endow Islamic studies departments at universities, and pressure public schools with Muslim students to pray towards Mecca.
This spread of Islam in the US is led by the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamic groups that try to maximize the spread of Sharia law while minimizing detection and push-back. You can read more about it here.
As a nation and a constitutional republic, we have to continue to fight this cancer that is spreading in our country. To be effective, we must ignore the accusations of islamophobia coming from the MB and continue to push. Sadly, this means we also have to fight the liberals who use the same accusations. It’s a damn shame our fellow citizens can’t see their misguided loyalties.
