Bon Jovi Islam

To be sure, there is a vibrant debate in the ummah about terrorism, as such. That, in reality, is a debate about tactics.

The Muslim "debating" being mentioned here is a lot like how Texan debates about the death penalty usually center on voltage.

BP Oil Spill: Failed Safety Device on Deepwater Horizon Rig Was Modified in China

BP ordered the owner of the Deepwater Horizon rig, whose explosion led to the worst environmental disaster in US history, to overhaul a crucial piece of the rig’s safety equipment in China, the Observer has learnt.

I have a major aversion to conspiracy theories. That said, exactly how many BILLIONS of dollars has America been set back by a few hours of supposedly incompetent Chinese workmanship?

Does anyone honestly believe that China will accept responsibility or even be held liable for its role in this "man caused disaster"?

@UK: British is the New UN-British, Islam is the New British


How do we make sense of all this? Oh it’s rather simple. Being British is now Un-British. But being Un-British, is British. Still confused? Do try to keep up. David Cameron explained this himself before he was elected by people hoping for something besides Labor, only to discover that it was completely possible to vote for three different parties, and end up with Labor anyway.


“Many British Asians see a society that hardly inspires them to integrate. Indeed, they see aspects of modern Britain which are a threat to the values they hold dear — values which we should all hold dear. Asian families and communities are incredibly strong and cohesive, and have a sense of civic responsibility which puts the rest of us to shame. Not for the first time, I found myself thinking that it is mainstream Britain which needs to integrate more with the British Asian way of life, not the other way around.“

It all makes perfect sense, imagine the power attraction of islam for the neoliberal political elite of both left and right.

Socialism and Thatcherism aka Cameronism, all fundamentally demand a controlled, subserviant and submissive indigenous population for the left/right political elite the British Asian way is islam.
