Reverse Assimilation, British Style

Britain permits Muslims to immigrate and twenty years later, the Muslims demand that Britain change its culture and customs to accomodate them. Case in point: the Muslim Council of Britain has announced their demands to transform British public schools to be more Islamic. This is a perfect example of logical outcome of "multiculturalism."

DEMANDS for a ban on “un-Islamic” activities in schools will be set out by the Muslim Council of Britain today.

Targets include playground games, swimming lessons, school plays, parents’ evenings and even vaccinations.

And the calls for all children to be taught in Taliban-style conditions will be launched with the help of a senior Government education adviser.

Professor Tim Brighouse, chief adviser to London schools, was due to attend the event at the capital’s biggest mosque.

His presence there was seen as “deeply worrying”, and a sign that the report was backed by the Government.

Tory MP Greg Hands said: “The MCB needs to realise it has to move closer to the rest of the community, not away from it.

“The presence of Tim Brighouse implies Government back ing of this report. This is very worrying.”

Terry Sanderson of the National Secular Society said the report was a “recipe for disaster”.

He added: “Schools with even just a handful of Muslim kids will find they have to follow these guidelines because there aren’t the staff to have one set of classes for Muslims and another for the rest.

Britons ignored the advice of those who warned against the admission of hundreds of thousands of immigrants from non-Western countries (or vilified them, as in the case of Enoch Powell). Now Britain is - as those voices predicted - being gradually wiped out of existence.

Under the guise of multiculturalism, Britain natural cultural defenses have been so erroded that British Muslims feel sufficiently emboldened to demand that Britons bend to their demands.

The report, Towards Greater Understanding – Meeting The Needs of Muslim Pupils In State Schools, says all schools should bring in effective bans for all pupils on “un-Islamic activities” like dance classes.

It also wants to limit certain activities during Ramadan. They include science lessons dealing with sex, parents’ evenings, exams and immunisation programmes.

The holy month – when eating and drinking is not allowed in daylight hours – should also see a ban on swimming lessons in case pupils swallow water in
the pool.

When swimming is allowed, boys should wear clothing covering their bodies “from the navel to the neck”, even during single-sex pool sessions, while girls must be covered up completely at all times, apart from the face and hands.

The MCB adds that schools should ensure contact sports, including football and basketball, “are always in single-gender groups”.

Even school trips are targeted in the report, which wants them all to be made single-sex “to encourage greater participation from Muslim pupils”.

It wants Arabic language classes for Muslim pupils, and says the Koran should be recited in music classes. And all schools should ensure they have prayer rooms with washing facilities attached, it says.

In art classes, Muslim children should not be allowed to draw people, as this is forbidden under some interpretations of Islamic law.

And while the MCB insists that all British children should learn about Islam, it wants Muslims to have the right to withdraw their children from RE lessons dealing with Christianity and other faiths.

The MCB says special treatment and opt-outs are necessary because otherwise Muslim pupils will feel excluded from school activities and lessons.

And what of young native Anglo-Saxons who feel excluded while they watch their culture being cleased from British school? Well, screw them. The British government hasn't represented the interests of native Britons in twenty years.

Forced Conversions in Britain

President Bush has repeatedly said that Islam is a religion of peace and that democracy will cure Islamic terror. Adding to the Mt. Everest-sized pile of evidence that this simply is not so, comes this wonderful little report from the U.K.:

Extremist Muslims who force vulnerable teenage girls to convert to Islam are being targeted by police, Met chief Sir Ian Blair has revealed.

Police are working with universities to clamp down on "aggressive conversions" during which girls are beaten up and forced to abandon university courses.

The Hindu Forum of Britain claims hundreds of mostly Sikh and Hindu girls have been intimidated by Muslim men who take them out on dates before terrorising them until they convert.

Sir Ian spoke about the problem at a conference organised by the forum.

A Met spokesman said: "Neighbourhood officers work with university authorities in London and we would encourage anyone targeted in this way to seek help and support and where necessary use third party reporting facilities if they do not want to contact police directly."

Ramesh Kallidai, of the Hindu Forum of Britain, said: "Some girls are petrified because they are constantly being phoned up, having their door knocked.

"One girl was beaten up on the street and others have been forced to leave university."

Britain is the oldest liberal democratic nations in Europe. Muslims living there have been exposed to the most liberal, democratic culture outside of the U.S. itself. Yet "radical Islam" is flourishing there. British Muslims are increasingly embracing jihad and Islamic terrorists, plotting and carrying out violent attacks, calling for the destruction of Western civilization and now apparently engaging in forcible conversions. The same is true throughout Western Europe, Canada and Australia. Clearly, a lack of democracy has nothing to do with Islamic terror, which leaves, of course, only Islam itself. But Mr. Bush cannot admit this since it would reduce to ashes his last, desperate justification for the Iraq debacle, and render his entire post-9/11 foreign policy a smoldering pile of ashes that only serves to start even more fires every time the wind blows.

There can be no accomodation between Islam and the West. No successful mingling. Separation and containment are the only options. Britons are beginning to realize this - but only now that they are paying the price for decades of Muslim immigration.

Canadian Circus

Few countries have embraced the poison of muliticulturalism quite like Canada. Driven by an intense feeling of self-hatred for their majority culture and its ethny, Canadians decades ago embarked on a project to dilute its European-descended population in favor of non-Europeans from across the globe, opening Canada's doors to immigrants from Asia, the Middle East and Africa. The result has been as predictable as it has been disastrous. Instead of the united, non-racist, dynamic multi-racial, multicultural society that Leftist Canadians had hoped would develop, a fractured, discordant seething sea of ethnic, religious and cultural rivalries has emerged, slowly eradicating any notion of what it means to be Canadian. Even when it comes to a simple matter like defending Canada from terrorists, the great multicultural enterprise of "community outreach" demonstrates just how ill-suited a multicultural community is to handle its own defense.

The Cross-Cultural Roundtable on Security had a noble mission when it was set up three years ago: to engage the country's ethnic communities in Canada's fight against terrorism. Some now call it the "circus."

The round table's meetings, which bring together national security officials and community representatives, take place behind closed doors, but a leaked tape recording of a marathon session held last weekend suggests that its nickname is not entirely undeserved.

About 50 invited guests and a few gatecrashers gathered for eight hours last Sunday at the Sheraton Hotel in downtown Toronto to pose questions to the city's top RCMP and Canadian Security Intelligence Service counterterrorism officials. It did not begin well.

A speaker at last weekend's Cross-Cultural Roundtable on Security meeting in Toronto, which brought together national security officials and community representatives, said Muslims were not involved in the 9/11 attacks and claimed seven of the 19 alleged hijackers were "alive and well." The discussions were set up three years ago to engage the country's ethnic communities in Canada's fight against terrorism.The first speaker, Ahmed Motiar, started off by sharing his curious theories of the 9/11 attacks, claiming that "Muslims were not involved and seven of the alleged 19 hijackers are alive and well!"

Then Cheryfa Jamal complained about a Canadian military exercise she said was held outside her children's Islamic school. (Her husband is one of the 18 men charged with belonging to an al-Qaeda-inspired terrorist group that was allegedly plotting truck bombings in downtown Toronto.)

"You're asking us here to have a dialogue, to bring our communities together, yet this is the kind of actions that we're facing every d ay," she said.

"My children came home upset. They thought the Americans had landed."

"Good lord," sighed another participant, before the meeting digressed into a shouting match between rival Muslim factions.
These kinds of "community outreach" meetings are taking place across Canada right now, as the government tries to combat terrorism by building bridges with ethnic communities in general and Muslims in particular.

The admission that the roundtable is meant to bring "ethnic communities" together is a confession that multiculturalism has failed in its stated (but not actual) purpose. Admitting large numbers of non-Europeans from non-Western cultures has not lead to the evolution of a cohesive Canadian national identity. It has destroyed it. But since that was the real purpose of multiculturalism in the first place, one might say it has succeeded beyond its creators' wildest expectations.

RCMP and CSIS officers have been spending their days off sitting through meetings like last Sunday's event, listening to a barrage of complaints and trying to clear up misconceptions about what they do and why they do it.

"We're going to continue to do our job," Andrew Ellis, who heads the Toronto regional CSIS office, told the round table meeting. "There continues to be individuals in this country who are representative of every community who are representing a threat, who are pursuing an agenda that's dangerous for all of us.

"And we all need to work together to be able to deal with that. Sometimes unfortunately these people are going to be arrested, they're going to be brought to justice and ? the criminal justice system will decide their guilt or innocence and let it rest there."

Notice the evasions and falsehoods that multiculturalism forces from the mouths of law enforcement officials. There are not individuals from "every community" preparing to do Canada harm. Does anyone expect Japanese-Canadians to suddenly start shooting up malls? Are Jewish Canadians on the verge of strapping on suicide vests to blow up churches? Have any French Canadians planned to hijack airliners and fly them into buildings? The answers are no, no and no. Terrorism concerns are localized primarily in one community, but officials can't admit that because it flies in the face of telling the truth that ethnic and cultural differences exist and that some groups don't want to be Canadian at all. To admit the truth instantly gives the lie to multiculturalism and exposes the sham perpetrated by the Canadian government on its people for the last 30 years.

The urgency for community outreach gained momentum after the July 7, 2005, suicide bombings in London.
The attack by young Britons inspired by al-Qaeda awoke Western governments to the emerging threat: The radicalization that was taking place within their own Muslim communities.

Since then, some of Canada's top-ranking counter-terrorism officers have been spending their evenings and weekends attending Islamic conferences and community functions.

In addition to the round table, RCMP and CSIS officers have been meeting imams and other community members in less formal gatherings with specific themes such as youth radicalization.

They even briefed Muslim leaders about the June 2 arrests in the Toronto terror plot before the news was announced at a press conference

Muslims in Canada are open to radicalization because they are Muslims. Non-Muslims do not get caught up in Islamist propaganda. The only reason Canada - like Britain - has a potential Islamic terror problem is because it allowed tens of thousands of Muslims to settle within its borders. Now it is beginning to pay the price for that decision.

But the Toronto round table meeting highlights the barriers that officials still face three years on: angry, sometimes ill-informed ethnic community representatives unable to move beyond venting at government.

"How long are you going to vent for?" said Salma Siddiqui, a Muslim who sits on the round table. She said she is frustrated that government officials who come to meet community members have to listen to insults, finger- pointing and 9/11 conspiracy theories rather than introspection and constructive suggestions.

"For the past three years, government has been engaging with goodwill. The government has come out in goodwill to listen. Now the goodwill has to come from those self-proclaimed leaders to come forward with some concrete proposals on how to move forward."

The invited guests last weekend included representatives of the Canadian Tamil Congress (whose former communications director has been arrested for allegedly trying to buy missiles for the Tamil Tigers terror group), World Sikh Organization, Simon Wiesenthal Centre and lobby groups representing Armenians, Japanese and Jamaicans.

But it was Muslim concerns that dominated the discussion. Imam Ali Hindy, whose worshippers have included several suspected terrorists, complained about six Muslims not getting security clearances for sensitive government jobs.

This is the new face of Canada: squabbling ethnic groups, disunited and vying with each other for political power based on victimhood status. It used to be that Canadians worried the Quebec might destroy the country by seceding. Now true Canadians look on in horror as the rest of the nation disintegrates in multicultural confusion and racial recriminations.
