The Islamic Republic of England
Taki's Magazine ^ | 9/21/2012 | Gavin McInnes

Posted on 09/21/2012 2:00:33 PM PDT by mojito

...During this year’s trip we headed into West London for a sepia-toned evening in the park. When we got there my mouth involuntarily said aloud, “What the f##k?” West London is so hardcore Muslim, it made everywhere else we had visited look like something out of Coronation Street. This wasn’t merely a high contingent of Muslims. It was an occupation. The book Londonistan is not an exaggeration; not even close. Kensington Gardens feels so much like Dubai, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Diana Memorial Playground changes its name to the Dodi Fayed’s Girlfriend Memorial Playground. Virtually everyone we saw was wearing a chador, and that included dozens who only had their eyes showing. When you’re the only non-Muslim family at the playground, your kids start to wonder why you brought them to Fat Ninja Park....

We escaped the park and headed to the world-famous department store Harrods, where my infidel wife wanted to indulge her love of material objects. The nearly 200-year-old institution has long been owned by Arabs and was bought a couple of years ago by Qatar Holdings. Virtually everyone—no, wait, EVERYONE—was Arabic in the store....I later asked a local if the high Arab population in that area has anything to do with Harrods and the fact that Fayed’s father used to own it and he said, “Maybe a bit. The real reason they dominate the West End is it’s the most expensive part of London and they’re the only ones who can afford it.”

Letting a foreign culture replace your own may seem like a cute idea to the world-traveled media class, but it can be quite sinister for the ones left holding the scrotum.....

On my first two visits to London, in 1962 and 1966, the city’s culture was thoroughly English. When I visited in 1985 and stayed in a hotel across from the Paddington railroad station, I thought I had gone to Beirut by mistake.

Didn't he get kicked out of National Review a few years ago?

From today’s OFST.....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Muslims are not happy....

They’re not happy in Gaza.

They’re not happy in Egypt.

They’re not happy in Libya.

They’re not happy in Morocco.

They’re not happy in Iran.

They’re not happy in Iraq.

They’re not happy in Yemen.

They’re not happy in Afghanistan.

They’re not happy in Pakistan.

They’re not happy in Syria.

They’re not happy in Lebanon.

So, where are they happy?

They’re happy in Australia.

They’re happy in Canada.

They’re happy in England.

They’re happy in France.

They’re happy in Italy.

They’re happy in Germany.

They’re happy in Sweden.

They’re happy in the USA.

They’re happy in Norway.

They’re happy in Holland.

They’re happy in Denmark.

Basically, they’re happy in every country that is not Muslim and unhappy in every country that is!

And who do they blame?

Not Islam.

Not their leadership.

Not themselves.

THEY BLAME THE COUNTRIES THEY ARE HAPPY IN!

AND THEN; They want to change those countries to be like....

THE COUNTRY THEY CAME FROM WHERE THEY WERE UNHAPPY!

Excuse me, but I can’t help wondering...

How damn dumb can you get?

Much exaggeration. The UK is around 5% Muslim, London is perhaps 10%.

The article is talking about a single neighborhood. If 90% of that 10% figure you posted live in one area, it would be overwhelmingly Muslim, just like the article describes.

But as London goes, so goes England, and as England goes, so goes the UK—a large body reaching critical mass has a great impact. London may only be 10%, but I bet the percentage under the age of 10 is much, much higher. And I bet that culturally the non-Muslims are much more fragmented.

I recall seeing a movie in the 1990’s called My Son the Fanatic, about a Pakistani man who had moved to a small town in the north of England to escape Islam.

But his son, born in the UK, has turned into a Islamist lunatic.

A disturbing and very prescient movie.

Is he British? I don't know much about him or the magazine, except for the John Derbyshire controversy a few months back.

Has he long been an anti-Semite?

He’s Greek. He may be an American citizen, though. I was in the audience of a panel years ago that featured the famed journalist Taki. His smarmy remarks about Jews left me and my best friend cold - to say the least.

I would think this irony has suggested itself to at least some European ethnic nationalists who have played the tune ‘The Jews Are Our Misfortune’ constantly since the Third Reich was smashed. Now it appears a different Semite actually has appeared behaving in all the ways (except being intelligent) that the Protocols of the Elders of Zion described. Can German neo-Nazi’s be happy with the politically mobilizing Turks or the LePen people be contented with the Islamization of much of urban France? The silence of these people about their lack of perception about who is the existential threat is thunderous.

“UK is toast”

I read the entire source article.

A grim picture, indeed.

Not sure how “the native Brits” really feel, as I’m sure many are reticent to express their true opinions.

But I sense that in the coming years, the English Defense League is going to become a major political party there....

Islam is a mental disease.

Leftists in England purposefully brought in Muzzies to dilute the white vote. They’ll also be the first to hang under Sharia.

I have a friend who is a very liberal German. She married an Englishman and they lived here in the US for about 15 years. They finally went back to England, and she told me the same thing: London is full of Arabs. They settled in Brighton... I haven’t heard much from her since.

I was there six years ago. It was no exaggeration even then. Muzzie women covered in black head to toe. Scared the Shiite of me then and it is scaring me here in Texas now. Saw a similar individual just the other day outside a bank in Arlington, Texas. We will be Americastan in no time if we don’t do something.

Unfortunately I frequently need to add new verses as I read of more acts of British capitulations to the coming Caliphate:

God Save the Queen

To Muslims don't be rude
Living in dhimmitude,
No offense bring.
Gospel preaching is "hate"
Christian faith second rate
The goal of servile state:
Alllah is King.

For kiddie’s farm set play
We take the pigs away
(They are unclean)
Never make Muzzies mad
They might declare Jihad
And though it makes children sad
Pigs are unseen.

When Ramadan draws near
We forsake ale and beer
(Can’t give offense)
School children can’t eat lunch
Can’t even candies crunch
Lest Moslems’ panties bunch
Dhimmis’ nonsense.

Don’t ignite a Koran
Can’t even burqas ban
They might protest
Shar-i-a’s here to stay
Amputate, stone away
Beheadings on Friday
Thus falls the West.

History books made clean
“Holocaust” never seen
Must teach a lie.
Seperate but equal?
Not in a British school
What is this new found rule?
“All truth must die.”

How long until Islam takes control of the Gov by means of Votes, then begin the change?
Muslims will own the country and military simply by votes and time.

There are only two kinds of Muslims, Cowards and Extremists.
Guess who makes the rules in Islam?

They asked for it and they got it. It will be interesting to see what will initiate “The Second Crusade” and who will be the participants, in my humble opinion it is no too far off and just around the corner.

Hysterical rubbish. Some of it simply unbelievable (a steward not knowing what bourbon is and I dont believe the taxi cab conversation either.....).

Britain is 96% NON-Muslim (and 92-93% white). London is a city, and cities by their very nature are cosmopolitan, they ALWAYS have been. So you are going to get many more immigrants. How stupid can you be to slate all of Britain based on ONE city?. Thats like me attacking the US solely on a trip to NY or LA.

And the Muslim populations that exist in London have been there since the 1950’s (ditto for other UK cities). So they didnt all decamp around 1993. And the writer’s reference to rich Arabs is stupid: everyone knows that the Arabs have made London their pleasure getaway/home since the oil booms of the 60’s and esp the 70’s.

The vast majority of Britain is white, Christian (practising or nominal), outside London, large Muslim populations exist in a few cities in the Midlands and Yorkshire, also Manchester. Much of England has little or no Muslim or any ethnic population.

And Scotland, NI and Wales have small ethnic populations and even smaller Muslim populations, again what little that exists does so in cities (Glasgow, Cardiff).

No doubt 2000 years ago, this writer would be complaining that Rome isnt as Italian/Roman as they thought it would be.

The writer points out that the UK has 7m foreigners. And?. So?. The vast,vast majority of them are not Muslim, in fact the majority are not even ethnic: Europeans, Eastern Europeans, Americans, Aussies, Kiwis etc. And most of those who are ethnic are Sikh, Hindu, black African and Caribbean, Asian/Oriental.....

Nobody in Britain has a problem (bar the BNP types) with the Sikhs or Hindus (neither of whom like Muslims much btw) or Asians or even the black African/Caribbean communities. The Sikhs, Hindus and Asian communities esp. are admired for being hard working, law abiding and valuing education and how they keep their identity but actively assimilate into British life and culture. Why the writer mentions the likes of the Sikhs and Hindus I know not. And frankly I find it distasteful. Think of what type of people lump all non-white people together. Yeah, you got it.

The writer quotes the Daily Mail. Well, they ARE a conservative paper, so they tend to have a bee in their bonnet about Islam. Just as the Guardian has one about rightist US politics.

Does the UK have a problem with Islam?. Yes.

Yes, we are too PC to Islam. But that dosent equal dhimmitude or conquest. We havent been conquered, we wont be and we never will. BTW, its the BRITISH govt that has recently made plans to greatly reduce immigration. Esp from the ME and Muslim nations like Pakistan.

Much of what is printed from America, like this article, is simply overly hysterical.

The UK is 96% NON-Muslim, and much of that 4% is in certain cities. The vast, vast majority of the UK is not populated by Muslims.

What about that part of London? Is it that 4%?

Yes, I think a lot of it was over the top but the basic point is valid. At what % does it take for it to become a real problem?

This dude must not have gone to the East End of London; Whitechapel, Bow, Bethnal Green, Shoreditch, Hackney and Poplar.

If he was freaked by the West End, he'd have have had a conniption fit down the Mile End Road. It is entirely Asian.
