No-Go Areas in Britain

An Anglican bishop is willing to speak the truth about Islam in Britain.

Wait a second — pick up your false teeth. Don’t worry; you can rest assured that no one in the traditional power structure of the Church of England is making such racist statements.

It takes a converted Muslim — and a bishop of color at that — to tell the truth about what’s happening in the UK.

I’ve written before about Michael Nazir-Ali, the bishop of Rochester. He’s the one who took exception to Prince Charles’ declaration that he wants to be the defender of all faiths, and not just Christianity, when he ascends to the throne of Blighty. Bishop Nazir-Ali had the temerity to say, “You can’t defend every faith because there are very serious differences among them.”

Now the Bishop of Rochester is in the news again:

Bishop: Extremism Creating ‘No-Go’ Areas for Non-Muslims in Britain

Islamic extremism in Britain has created communities that are “no-go areas” for non-Muslims, a Pakistani-born Church of England bishop said in The Sunday Telegraph.

Michael Nazir-AliMichael Nazir-Ali, the bishop of Rochester, told the newspaper that Britain’s policies of multiculturalism have created separate Muslim communities that fail to integrate into mainstream society.

“There has been a worldwide resurgence of the ideology of Islamic extremism. One of the results of this has been to further alienate the young from the nation in which they were growing up and also to turn already separate communities into ‘no-go’ areas where adherence to this ideology has become a mark of acceptability,” said Nazir-Ali.

“Those of a different faith or race may find it difficult to live or work there because of hostility to them,” he said.

A British Muslim leader criticized Nazir-Ali’s comments.

“It’s irresponsible for a man of his position to make these comments,” Imam Ibrahim Mogra of the Muslim Council of Britain said in comments published by The Sunday Telegraph. “He should accept that Britain is a multicultural society in which we are free to follow our religion at the same time as being extremely proud to be British. We wouldn’t allow ‘no-go’ areas to happen.

Nazir-Ali did not identify any such “no-go areas” in Britain, a predominantly Christian country with a Muslim population of about 1.6 million, many of whom live in northern England.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the area of Luton where Lionheart lives is one of those no-go zones.

The Archbishop of Canterbury must be pitching a fit right now.

How dare The Bishop of Rochester speak truth!

Charlemagne said...

Someone in a position of authority in Britain needs to find the courage to say that Britain is NOT a multicultural society or else it will find itself a monocultural Islamic society.

How can we contact the Rt. Rev and give him words of encouragement and support?

Isnt it interesting that the people who now speak out against Islam, are the non indiginous "guests" of our country, that the government finds hard to silence under its countless race hate laws.

When Brown and his quangos put their Treacherous heads together, to find ways in which to silence THEIR OWN PEOPLE, Ide guess this was not a scenario that automatically jumped up and bit them where it hurts.

Thank-you Mr Nazir-Ali, for having the strength in your own convictions to voice the patently obvious future of Islamic ghettos springing up all around the U.K.

Its not rocket science, Infact it seems the only people unable to comprehend the problem are the Marxist clowns that implemented the situation in the first place.

I find this point somewhat puzzling however, because I struggle to find a link between the Ideologies of the Politically correct left and radical Islam.

The people of Britain do not embrace this despotic "cult", they are blissfully unaware of how serious Muslims adhere to its teachings of oppression through conquest. The internet has woken ME up. I am now diligently attempting to open the eyes of my countrymen to our future plight!!!.

Those who proport to govern us will not succeed in silencing us!!!. Perhaps that will be my slogan.

What you do think Lord Acton, Winston Churchill, and Lord Nelson would have said about Muslim "No-Go Zones" in ENGLAND, do you think?

Zenster said...

Some money quotes from a November 5, 2006 interview with Archbishop Nazir.

He accuses them [Muslims] of double standards in their view of the world for propagating a ‘dual psychology’ in which they sought both ‘victimhood and domination’.

Muslim demands can never be met because ‘their complaint often boils down to the position that it is always right to intervene when Muslims are victims... and always wrong when Muslims are the oppressors or terrorists’

‘Given the world view that has given rise to such grievances, there can never be sufficient appeasement and new demands will continue to be made.’

'We are dealing with not just a faith, but with a well-defined political ideology.'

The Bishop of Rochester is one of the few serious figures in the Church of England who sincerely believes that British values have developed from the Christian faith and its vision of personal and common good. He states: ‘After they were clarified by the enlightenment they became the bedrock of our modern political life. These values need to be recovered to help us to inculcate the virtues of generosity, loyalty, moderation and love.’

[emphasis added]

Michael Nazir-Ali “gets it”.

Charlemagne: How can we contact the Rt. Rev and give him words of encouragement and support?

I sent him a congratulatory email back when the above article was published. Anyone who wants to can email him at nasir.ali

Charlemagne said...

Thank you Zenster - I will e-mail him immediately.

When will Bishop Ali be arrested?

hey Lionheart, maybe you can seek Sanctuary in the Bishop's Cathedral.

(Y'all DO still have those laws on the books, right?).
