Waste of effort

How much wasted effort we expend on Muslim issues. Such effort and energies could be much better expended elsewhere.

The hours that I have spent studying the Quran, producing these cartoons, and writing this blog is but one example of effort that should be unnecessary. It is unfortunate that our senior politicians, both in this Labour Government, but also the other two main parties, namely the Conservatives and the Liberal-Democrats appear not to understand Islam. It is notable that of the political parties, only the BNP have made any obvious effort to study the Quran.

I have persevered, however, in the hope that more politicians can come to some true understanding of Islam, and hence will hopefully be able to make some sensible decisions about the future direction of Britain. If you understand even a little of Islam, you will see what a mess we are in already in Britain. This mess can only get worse, unless some very bold actions (not just words) are taken.

Home Secretary John Reid is living in cloud cuckoo land if he believes that the Islamic terrorist threat in Britain will last only one generation. It will continue all the time that "true" Muslims (as I call them) or "radicalised" Muslims (as he would call them) are present in Britain.

Please understand the following points:

1. Islam is inherently violent. You do not need to take my word for it. Simply read the Quran for yourself, or ask a Hindu or a Sikh.

2. It is impossible to co-exist harmoniously with true Muslims. Why do you think it was necessary to partition India?

3. The distinction between "moderate" and "radicalised" Muslims is rather artificial. In fact, it would not surprise me if this Labour Government has invented these terms. I would prefer to use the term "true" Muslim, for someone who believes that every word in the Quran is the revealed word of Allah. In those terms, therefore, a Muslim whose faith is not particularly strong, or who just wants a quiet life, is quite rightly considered to be an apostate or a heretic, as far as true Muslims are concerned.

4. A true Muslim is commanded, by the Quran, to terorise and slaughter non-believers wherever he finds them. This command is as current today, as it was in the time of Mohammed. Hence you do not need a centralised leadership (a Hitler equivalent) for this command to be implemented.

5. The youth, of all cultures, are prone to excesses of zeal. Certainly this is true of Islamic cultures also. In Britain we have an expanding population of young Muslims, many of whom are being increasingly "radicalised". It is not easy to see what can possibly put an end to this "radicalisation", since it is inherent to Islam itself. How can John Reid be so optimistic that the consequent home grown terrorist threat will only last for one generation? There is no end.

6. The "radicalisation" of Muslims at Universities has been going on for many years. How incompetent is this Labour Government to have only recently noticed that it is happening. I was aware of it in the mid 1980s, when I was studying.

7. It is quite unrealistic to expect "moderate" Muslims to report on the behaviour of the "true" Muslims, in any significant numbers, since the latter hold the moral high ground. It would be very intimidating anyway.

8. Our security services and the Police have a massive task to identify all of the terrorists in Britain. Recently the head of MI5 has said that there are currently some 30 active terror plots "that we know of", with 1600 people involved "who are actively engaged in plotting or facilitating terrorist acts here and overseas". I suspect that this is but a fraction of the total potential in the future. Somewhere around a quarter of the two million Muslims in Britain are sympathetic towards the London bombers. There can be but a small step between sympathising with terrorists, and providing active support and involvement.

9. Even the friends and relatives of the London bombers did not know they were planning it. They were surprised that they did that act, and the personalities and lives of the bombers apparently gave few clues. Clearly if people within the Muslim community have difficulty identifying terrorists in their number, what hope have the security services?

10. It is necessary for the security services to be 100 percent effective in apprehending terrorists. If only one single terrorist plot succeeds, and 99 fail, the terrorists will consider this to be a success. Therefore it is only a matter of time before such a plot succeeds.

11. There are similarities between Muslims and Nazis. For example, both wish to exterminate Jews. Both wish to impose their "values" on others, by force if necessary. At this time of remembrance, we must ask: How much are we to tolerate today? Our forbears, for whom we wear the red poppy with pride, did not tolerate the Nazis. "Britons never will be slaves" Yes we will, in around 80 to 100 years time, if current policies continue, Britain will be an Islamic state. Non-believers will have to pay an extra tax, to demonstrate their inferiority and subjugation, or have their head cut off. Homosexuals will be stoned to death as a matter of course. We cannot allow this future for Britain. Ironically, it is projected that liberal minded Holland will have a majority population of Muslims in around 20 years time. The introduction of Sharia law would soon follow, putting an abrupt end to all such liberal practices.

Here are a few quotes from the Quran, which make my points for me:

"And kill them wherever you find them, and drive them out from whence they drove you out, and persecution is severer than slaughter, and do not fight with them at the Sacred Mosque until they fight with you in it, but if they do fight you, then slay them; such is the recompense of the unbelievers." Quran 2.191

"Let not the believers take the unbelievers for friends rather than believers; and whoever does this, he shall have nothing of (the guardianship of) Allah, but you should guard yourselves against them, guarding carefully; and Allah makes you cautious of (retribution from) Himself; and to Allah is the eventual coming." Quran 3.28

"They desire that you should disbelieve as they have disbelieved, so that you might be (all) alike; therefore take not from among them friends until they fly (their homes) in Allah's way; but if they turn back, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them, and take not from among them a friend or a helper." Quran 4.89

"Wherefore for the iniquity of those who are Jews did We disallow to them the good things which had been made lawful for them and for their hindering many (people) from Allah's way. And their taking usury though indeed they were forbidden it and their devouring the property of people falsely, and We have prepared for the unbelievers from among them a painful chastisement." Quran 4.160-161

"Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Apostle have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection." Quran 9.29

"O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness; and know that Allah is with those who guard (against evil)." Quran 9.123

I am coming to the opinion that the only way to truly safeguard Britain from these threats, is to return all Muslims to their homelands. This is an opinion that I have arrived at through studying the Quran, and observing the failure of this Labour Government (and other governments in Holland, France, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Germany, Poland etc) to properly tackle this issue.

I make this suggestion without any feeling of malice towards ordinary individual Muslims. I realise that most people, of whatever culture, just want to get on with a quiet life. Such a large movement of people will of course be costly, and we should be prepared to help financially with relocation expenses. However, in the long term, it will be worth it financially. It will be very much worthwhile anyway, to remove this threat. Not just the terrorist threat, but also the high probability that Britain will become an Islamic state in the future.

We could say something to the Muslim community along these lines:

"Whilst acknowledging the positive contrubutions of some of you to Britain, overall your community is a serious threat to our peace and stability. The cost of identifying and dealing with the Islamic terrorists in your midst outweighs the benefits of those of you who are law abiding, peaceful, and contribute taxes. Britain is a fair minded and just nation, but it is very clear to everybody that the current situation cannot continue. Therefore, you will have the opportunity to sell any property that you may own, and you can take the proceeds with you. In addition, we will cover your estate agent's fees, your air fare, and the cost of shipping your movable belongings. You will see that this is also advantageous to yourselves: How can you be certain that your son will not become a terrorist in the future? This is quite likely if you remain in Britain, but unlikely if you return to your country of origin. We in Britain bear no malice towards peaceful Muslims. However, it is painfully obvious that our two very different cultures cannot possibly coexist. The Quran itself makes that clear."

So returning to my opening remark, that we waste far too much time, effort, and money on Muslim issues.

The cost of Iraq is around 5 billion pounds. The cost of identifying, apprehending, putting on trial, and imprisoning Islamic terrorists is in the many millions of pounds.

The cost to businesses is enormous. British Airways (BA) have lost revenue amounting to many millions of pounds, due to the threat to blow up planes, just a couple of months ago. We can expect such a threat to repeat frequently.

The opportunity cost is enormous, i.e. What could we spend this money and effort on otherwise? How much has been lost due to the unwillingness of Americans to travel to Britain now? Britain is quite rightly seen as a springboard for Islamic terrorists to attack America. We in Britain owe a tremendous debt of gratitude towards our friends in America. This is no way to repay their generosity towards Britain.

So, what could we have better spent these billions of pounds on, if we did not need to waste them on Muslim issues?

Renewable energy is an important help with tackling global warming. Of course, it is not 100 percent reliable (the wind does not always blow, the sun does not always shine, and the tide does not always flow). However it is an important contribution. We should be looking at increasingly large projects, such as the dam across the Severn estuary, a major hydroelectric project. Renewables, as with many items, benefit from economies of scale. Together with really encouraging the micro generation scale, these all can help combat global warming, and also reduce our dependancy on oil and gas. We need to really "go for it", preferably sooner rather than later.

On the subject of the environment, it is clear that we in Britain consume too much energy and resources. If everyone in the world consumed at the rate that we do, then we would need three worlds. Logically, therefore, assuming the population of Britain is 60 million, we should be looking to reduce the population to around 20 million. (The 60 million figure must be an under-estimate. This government has no idea of the number arriving. Mervin King, Governor of the Bank of England has complained about the unreliability of the figures.)

However, there is much that can be done to improve energy efficiency, and reduce resource usage. If we can double our efficiency, then a population total of around 40 million should be our target. How can this be achieved? Of course, I am certainly not advocating euthanasia or gas chambers. It can be achieved, firstly by putting a complete halt to any further immigration whatever, on any pretext. Britain is already full. Secondly, by being very strict about who can remain. Anyone with no real connection to this country, for example must be expelled. Thirdly by not automatically giving teenage girls a flat when they get pregnant. Britain has the highest rate of teenage pregnancies in Europe. Hardly surprising, given this incentive.

Large areas of our cities have become no go areas for decent, law abiding people. If you park your car there, it will be vandalised. You have a high chance of being stabbed or shot for your mobile phone and wallet. If the three policies outlined in the preceeding paragraph can be followed, then gradually the "white flight" can be reversed. This will have very obvious environmental and health benefits too, since more people would then be able to live near to where they work, and so cut down very considerably on commuting.

These are very serious issues. As energy and resources become ever more scarce in the future, we are setting ourselves up for some very serious social upheavals in the future. We can make the conscious decision to tackle this now, in a peaceful way, or just allow the problem to continue, when it will be "solved" with much violence in the future. I believe, and hope, that such violence can be avoided, but only by bold action today. Simply tinkering with the problem, levying extra tax on larger cars for example, is not going to result in a desirable outcome any time soon.

We have some highly talented engineers and scientists in Britain. One area that Britain has made a very significant contribution is the research and development of nuclear fusion. This produces far less radioactive waste than conventional (fission) power stations. Some very significant progress has been made in the study of nuclear fusion at the JET (Joint European Torus) lab, near Oxford. The next generation is ITER, which Britain is also contributing to, located in France. However, as is the characteristic of international projects, they are slow and costly. With some boldness, and funding, we in Britain have the skills and experience to make a significant step on our own, whilst also in parallel contributing to ITER, and learning from it. Time is running out now, and we no longer have the luxury of wasting time in endless meetings with international partners. Britain can, and should really push for nuclear fusion power stations. In the interim, we also need more conventional (fission) nuclear power stations.

As always happens under Labour Governments, the priority of military R & D is cut. We need to maintain a nuclear weapon system. Trident will need replacing, and it is imperative that we have a replacement. It is unfortunately the case that the world is a dangerous place. I wish that it were not so, but it is pointless pretending otherwise.

We in Britain should be justifiably proud of our past achievements. Think of our contribution to Concorde, the Harrier "jump jet", the TSR2 which was far in advance of anything in its time (cancelled by a Labour Government after the prototype had flown and shown a huge performance leap.) Some years earlier, we could easily have had the first supersonic aircraft, but that was also cancelled by a Labour Government, virtually at the point when it was about to fly. It was well in advance of anything that America, or anyone else had at the time. Projects not involving Government interference have also demonstrated hugely impressive design talent: The Thrust SSC is the only land vehicle to have broken the sound barrier. The JCB Dieselmax is the fastest diesel powered vehicle in the world.

There appears to be some sort of suicidal death wish by sucessive Labour Governments, who belittle the indiginous skills, talents, enthusiasm, kindness, honesty, loyalty, values, and tolerance of the British people. Their sucessive acts of vandalism would have been seen as treasonable offenses in the past, and it would seem that their current irresponsible policies, allowing all manner of evil people into Britain for example, will be seen in a dim view by later historians.

Is it any coincidence that this Labour Government has abolished the offense of treason?

Manufacturing businesses in Britain are suffering the steepest decine in recent history, steeper even than during the rationalisations under Margaret Thatcher (which I think were over-done). It is hardly surprising that this decline should be so steep. The high level of taxation is a real burden for businesses. In the Republic of Ireland, the tax rate on businesses was cut significantly, and guess what happened? The total tax take actually increased. This is common sense, but it is counter-intuitive. I do not think that "dear" Gordon Brown understands this simple point, nor do most Labour MPs. It surprises me that the unions are not more hostile towards this government. It is their members who are needlessly losing their jobs in large numbers.

I have a concern, regarding defence procurement: I have some doubts about the JSF aircraft. This is due to replace the Harrier. Certainly the JSF will have many capabilities that the Harrier does not. For example, it has a stealth design, meaning that it is not easily seen on radar. However, the complex lift fan arrangement is not as aesthetically pleasing as the much simpler swiveling nozzles of the Harrier. Of course, a lift fan is more efficient, in that it can lift a greater weight for a given number of "horsepower" input, so you can see why that approach may be favoured. I cannot see that it gives the pilot the versatility, and manouvreability of the Harrier. When flying forwards, the nozzles can be pointed downwards very rapidly, giving a nearly instantaneous change of direction. This is very un-nerving for the enemy, who is quite unable to predict what the Harrier pilot will do next. During the Falklands conflict, there was not a single Harrier lost during air combat. Numerous Mirage fighters were downed, even though on paper they were superior. Of course, credit also has to be given to the Sidewinder missile, but it does need to be locked onto the target first. I have some misgivings that the JSF will not be as capable in this respect.

Why can we not independently design a third generation Harrier? Surely it should be possible to design a Pegasus equivalent engine, with say 50000 lb thrust? Wrap around it an airfeame with supersonic air intakes, and stealth shape, and the result would be marvellous. A supersonic Harrier (the P 1154) was in development in the 1960s, but was, of course, cancelled by an incoming Labour Government under Harold Wilson , with the project well advanced.

It would seem that we have had numerous Labour Governments who have taken so many short-sighted and irrational decisions over the decades. The present incumbents are no exception. Even Prince Charles, defender of the Islamic faith, is getting irate with the Defence Secretary Des Browne, over poor supply of equipment to our troops in Afghanistan and Iraq. Prince Charles takes his role as Colonel in Chief of the Parachute Regiment very seriously. One can but hope that Prince Charles will soon come to understand the truth about Islam. Has he not read the Quran? It is necessary to understand the concept of abrogation.

Humanity needs peace not Islam.

They are like naughty children. Naughty children always get more attention. Good children tend to just get on with things, happily entertaining themselves.

Muslims, like naughty children, also tend to blame others for their mistakes and failures.

They need a good spanking and to be sent to Coventry. Oh, quite a lot of them are already there.
