Islam in the UK

Islam is, for now, included under this topic

I agree with you on several points here (and I invite comment from any other readers).

I think it's true that the authorities fear native backlash more than Muslim barbarity. Not necessarily because it will be more brutal - it most likely wouldn't be - but because the Muslims are constantly on a hair-trigger anyway with their claimed victimhood (even while nothing at all happens to them), and this would be the beginning of tit-for-tat that would escalate into the civil war.

They don't want the civil war because it would mean a lot of killing and indeed they would likely be held accountable eventually.

I agree with you about Brexit too. We are living through strange times indeed when the media only ever talk about economics but the Brexit vote was most likely nothing to do that and everything to do with identity and a fury about having to pay for our own colonisation by retarded cultures. I don't think there was ever a time previously when the media routinely lied about what is obvious to all, but at least, thank goodness, now we have the Internet as an alternative.

When I say we will get our country back I do not mean without bloodshed. There will likely be widespread bloodshed, and this is indeed a disturbing prospect. But we have to get it back. I can only hope that those communities whose way of life is antithetical to ours will see the writing on the wall before this point, pack bags and leave for the their cultural homelands. We only have this one, and they're not having it.

The only alternative to civil war, I think, if the Muslims do not break Europeans with one atrocity too many, is a long, long haul whereby through civil debate, reason and argument, we eventually turn them around to our way of life and they integrate. (You might have seen Paul Weston's recent essays discussing these different possibilities.) I don't think Islam can be reformed at all, so I mean, really, more and more Muslims abandoning Islam for our way of life instead.

The trouble is a lot will need to be in place to make this happen. Our vapid commercialism and hedonism is not enough of an alternative. Nor our ridiculous "equality" whereby we try to claim that everyone is the same and men are the same as women etc. Even the Muslims can no doubt see this for the nonsense it is. So we would need a reformation first. But I think that necessary reformation will probably come after the war, the conflagration, and not before.

Other barriers to Muslims being persuaded around are ethnic ones and the fact that, while we are continually called "racist", Muslims of course would never consider allowing their women, for example, to marry an atheist white man (and become atheist themselves). There are strong barriers up against this and for a long time yet they will even kill their women rather than have it happen (on the very rare occasions it even might!). Islam itself has built-in protection for apostasy and sentences to death those who wish to leave so this is another serious obstacle. A programme of official state protection might even need to be offered to those who wish to leave. (This is a long way from current policy which largely denies any problems with Islam and instead white-washes the death-cult.)

I often chat with friends about whether there is anything that might tip the Brits over the edge and make them turn off "Strictly Come Dancing" or whatever it is they're watching and think about what is happening to the country which their ancestors built and which they have been fortunate enough to inherit. I think there really are some things. A successful attack on the Royals, for example. I think there are things that would make our underclass grasp the opportunity to vent frustrations that have welled over a very long time, and even some hitherto civilised people might pick up weapons and matches and leave their houses to visit local mosques. (Disclaimer: I'm not encouraging this, readers, merely speculating.)

I wonder if other readers think there is anything at all that could tip Europeans in general over the edge and make them determined to reclaim their territory and their way of life in their own countries, before demographics simply win by default via democracy. This bearing in mind that at the last election not enough of the remaining British people even wanted to elect UKIP!

Theodore Dalrymple himself lives in Shropshire when he's residing in England, so Gavin has perhaps made a good choice of where to live.

I also think it's a pity the forum is so quiet at the moment. I enjoy reading most of the posts on here, but I'm a bit lazy in terms of writing posts myself. On the positive side, a lot of now popular forums and blogsites started off very quietly for the first few years of their existence.

Like Danny mentioned in his excellent post, it's hard not to be pessimistic, but as glib as it may sound, we have to remain strong, don't we?

As regards an Islamic reformation, I agree with you, Gavin: I don't think that one will be coming any time soon. As Dalrymple and others have said, Islam is notable for its absolutism, which is what makes it seem strong. Yet it's incredibly brittle, too.

As for what the tipping point will be, who can say? My mind, though, whenever this topic comes up, always starts thinking about the benefits system. This is something that we have discussed previously, of course, but I'd like to see people focus on it more. One way or another we have to find a way to turn their benefits tap off.

I have no idea how one would go about it, of course, but I'd wager that there are a lot of people put there who would agree with us, and there aren't enough taxpayers to fund the present system anyway. And as we all know, that situation is not going to improve, is it?

I just can't help but think that many Muslims would (have to) skidaddle if the gibsmedats dried up.

They can't milk the system for all it's worth forever.

Oh, and I've long been a fan of Steve Sailer's cousin marriage ban idea. And I reckon that a lot of Pakistani ladies in this country would probably like the idea, too.

I guess the biggest mistake in my most recent post was to talk of bloodshed as a distant prospect, when in fact hundreds have been slaughtered on European streets this summer alone.

“I think it's true that the authorities fear native backlash more than Muslim barbarity. Not necessarily because it will be more brutal - it most likely wouldn't be - but because the Muslims are constantly on a hair-trigger anyway with their claimed victimhood (even while nothing at all happens to them), and this would be the beginning of tit-for-tat...”


Traditionally, the left has ascribed violence committed by members of minority groups to ‘alienation’; whereas acts of violence against minorities are invariably attributed to ‘hate’.

The authorities don’t welcome violence on the part of minorities, but they don’t regard it as – empirically – the same thing as violence committed by members of the majority. Historically, one was a response to a social evil, the other a product of individual wickedness.

Muslim violence has complicated this narrative.

Islam is a violent ideology, and Muslim violence will continue for so long as large numbers of Muslims live in our midst.

But Muslim violence is merely a symptom, not the sickness itself.

The root issue is our own cultural self-loathing, or what John Derbyshire calls ethnomasochism: http://www.unz.com/jderbyshire/after-th ... y-in-nice/

Self-hatred is a dangerous trait in an individual, and in a society, it is disastrous. It blinds us to what is good about our (traditional) way of life, and prevents us criticising what is so obviously rotten in alien cultures.

This self-loathing caused past governments to open borders to millions of immigrants in the first place, and has left a frank debate on the compatibility of Islam and Western culture all but impossible.

“I agree with you about Brexit too. We are living through strange times indeed when the media only ever talk about economics but the Brexit vote was most likely nothing to do that and everything to do with identity and a fury about having to pay for our own colonisation by retarded cultures.”


Brexit revealed two things – the alienation of the people from party politics, and the liberal establishment's contempt for the white majority. Since its onset, mass immigration has been enormously unpopular among ordinary people, and in particular those communities which have been transformed by a series of influxes from the third world. Brexit presented ordinary people with a unique opportunity to express their frustrations and embarrass the political class.

It's no surprise that the BBC has largely ignored this aspect of the story - the polite media would rather restrict its coverage of immigration to stories of hijabis winning televised flan-making contests.

Reading anything the BBC publishes on immigration, one can almost sense the journalist’s unease. Immigration in itself is always portrayed as a non-issue. The real issue, of course, is the prospect of a backlash™.

The average Briton recognises that there are good reasons why Bath looks like Bath and Mogadishu looks like Mogadishu – and that British cities of the future will be looking a damn sight more like Somalia than Somerset if present trends continue.

Is there for a hope for a peaceful resolution? I sincerely hope so. But time is short – and the worse things get, the bloodier our future promises to be.

As you observe, contemporary British culture – such as it is, is not an appealing alternative to Islam.

What’s needed – in Britain, and in Europe generally - is a rediscovery of national identity; a recognition that western nations lost direction in the aftermath of the war and are in need of cultural renewal. The old parties have shown themselves to be useless. We desperately need a new politics.

A re-evaluation of welfare culture – as Charlie – suggests, would be an excellent start.

A lurch to the right would necessarily require minorities to question whether they wish to continue living in our midst, but tough. This is our country, and we have no other.

Great post again, Danny, if I may say so. Many thoughts occur to me about our predicament that I don't have space to cram into the Twitter too. I use that mainly just to keep up with the craziness and to point to various things which I personally have read (I am trying to avoid the word "share"!). I will try to float some of these thoughts with you all at some point, but I'm sure we're all busy with other things, and there isn't always time.

It certainly is interesting though, and perhaps prudent and necessary, to try to predict where this is all going. I try to expose it relentlessly on the Twitter (as do many others, of course) and we can consider it in more depth here. Because the Overton Window has opened up a fair bit more in the last two years due to the constant Muslim attacks, I have just moved our thread "What are you going to do if there is a war?" from a small private area of the forum into the main public area. This is a topic that's been on my mind just recently. I'm ever-interested to predict exactly how such a conflict might unfold. Cities such as Birmingham and London would go first, martial law likely imposed, communities would likely split down ethnic lines, for good or bad. How it would go depends on many factors. Global events, the government in power, when it happens. I think Paul Weston is right that the closest comparison would be the 1990s conflict in Bosnia/Herzegovina.

We would be looking at brutal conflict, but if it happened relatively soon, we'd win it, simply through numbers and through the fact that we control the military. Increasing political correctness might change that. On the other hand, it might not come about at all, moderate Muslims might prevail, these attacks might be mere nips on a lion's back and we will all settle on values to which we can agree. (Unlikely, granted, but let's consider everything.) All this is perhaps best considered in that thread, but what I would say is that it is worth at this point at least contemplating exactly what you do intend to do personally if matters take off:

Are you going to fight or fly in order to protect your family? And isn't it interesting that strong and brave who stand and fight in these situations are often killed, while those who run survive? Let's hope those strong people have at least passed on their genes first. In certain cases also, we must bear in mind, it can be better to back off and re-group before re-taking an area. It's all for that thread, but I would say that given the possibility of more widespread civil disorder in the future (after all, remember the riots?) is isn't paranoid now at the least have a bug-out bag prepared, in the case of any eventuality - it's only prudent.

I have just read this in the Telegraph:

"Masood, may have eventually snapped because of racism in his village leading him to slash the face of a cafe owner.
It is thought he may have then been radicalised while in jail, eventually leading to his involvement in terrorism."

Just, no. Each human being is responsible for his own actions, excluding those who suffer from mental problems (although it doesn't excuse anyone from facing the consequences). This kind of thought ("ooh he suffers so much, he isn't to blame) just perpetuates crime.
