The Face of Moderate Islam in Britain

This is the latest in a series of guest essays by the British author Paul Weston.

The Face of Moderate Islam in Britain
by Paul Weston

St. George in the EastThe Muslim beating handed out to Canon Michael Ainsworth, priest at the St George-in-the-East church of Shadwell, East London earlier this month and last week’s conviction of a Muslim for the rape of a 27 year old woman in nearby Whitechapel during 2005 share a surprisingly common link in the attitudes and associates of The Muslim Council of Britain.

In the wake of the faith-hate attack, Inayat Bunglawalah, media secretary for The Muslim Council of Britain, wrote a quite extraordinary article in the Guardian entitled: “Jihad or Alcohol” where he claimed: “An alcohol fuelled attack on a Christian priest in East London has stirred up more Islamophobia.”

The amusingly named Bunglawalah was distinctly unfunny in his article, where he attempted to suggest the attack — and subsequent media reporting of it — had nothing to do with Islam’s anti-Christian ideology and everything to do with the British media’s (with the honourable exception of the BBC and Guardian) ongoing Islamophobic agenda.

Quite how he can turn such a cowardly attack on a priest into an attack on the Islamophobic British is positively surreal, and quite how the Guardian allowed him the platform to deliver it even more so. Bunglawalah relied on half-truths, evasion and a refusal to name the perpetrators as Muslims as he distorted their actions as alcohol fuelled high jinks — which is understandable, I suppose. To recount the actual facts of the event would presumably have made even Bunglawalah an Islamophobe.

Bunglawalah’s article also carried a press release from the East London Mosque, which decried the attack by “Asian” youths on Canon Ainsworth. Bunglawalah presumably thinks that citing a religious organisation of such undoubted munificence would add credibility to his dissembling, but the mosque in question should really carry no moral authority — more of which later.

He finishes his article by criticising Melanie Phillip’s article in the Spectator (in which she accused the attackers of being Jihadists rather than common or garden drunks) with his piece de resistance: “Alcohol fuelled anti-social incidents are worrying and reprehensible enough without being hijacked by those with a not so subtle anti-Muslim agenda of their own.”

What the discombobulating Bunglawalah omitted to mention in his Guardian puff piece was that this was not an “anti-social” incident at all, having already been classified by the police as a faith-hate crime. A curious aberration considering the time and trouble the Muslim Council of Britain has gone to in order to get just such legislation passed in the first place.

Bunglawalah also failed to mention the insults hurled at this harmless 57 year old man of God prior to his attack by the three plucky Muslims, which were reportedly: “You f***ing priest” and “this should not be a church, it should be a Mosque.” Nor did he mention the previous attacks on the church which left its elderly congregation cowering in fear as bricks smashed through its ancient stained glass windows, nor the repeated vandalism of gravestones in nearby St Dustan’s church.

The bungling Bunglawalah was remiss again in his failure to mention that half of all London’s clergy have been the victims of faith based attacks over the last twelve months, and as this happens rarely in the leafy avenues of Chelsea and Richmond it is possible that ALL of East London vicars face violence on a regular basis, as articulated by the Bishop of London, the Rt Reverend Richard Chartres, who said: ”over the years we’ve had murders, we’ve had assaults on the Clergy….but of course if you go out onto the streets, if you belong to the community, if you’re part of it, then you’re vulnerable.”

This incredibly depressing statement is backed up by ex-policeman Nick Tolson of Churchwatch, who notes that whilst the Police and Crown Prosecution Service are overly eager to classify attacks on mosques or Muslims as hate crimes, they are equally reluctant to classify attacks on churches and vicars as such.
- - - - - - - - -
Dr Anthony McRoy, a Christian expert on Islam, also stated on the Churchwatch web site that attacks on churches in Bradford, Burnley and Oldham were a routine occurrence, and questioned why a firebombing had failed to become mainstream media news. The answer to this, of course, is that the supposedly Islamophobic British media go out of their way to ignore such stories, not that they get much in the way of thanks from their Islamic masters.

It is unfortunate that Canon Ainsworth’s wife inadvertently helped Bunglawalah’s perverse disassociation with Islamic reality when she stated:

“Clearly the Muslim community is very shocked. These individuals were clearly under the influence and this was a random act… normally community relations here are very good. We have had very strong messages of support from the East London Mosque and Tower Hamlets Mosque with whom we have good relations.”

I hesitate to suggest that Mrs Ainsworth is exhibiting classic signs of Dhimmitude, but firstly, this was not a random act, as she knows only too well, and secondly she should be careful in her acceptance of support from the Tower Hamlets Mosque which has been pressurising Muslim dominated Tower Hamlets Council to dig up the 350,000 dead Christians in a local graveyard in order to provide space for dead Muslims, and she should be even more circumspect with regard to the East London Mosque for the following reason.

East London MosqueThe East London Mosque is partly funded by Wahhabist Saudi money, in addition to European Development Fund money. In 2004 it opened a new study centre where the guest of honour was Sheikh Abdur-Rahman-al-Sudais, an imam at the Grand Al Haraam Mosque in Mecca, the heart of Islam. Although Sheikh Sudais was granted a visa to enter Britain, he has been refused one for Canada because of his repeated calls for the annihilation of the Jews, along with solicitations of violence against Christians, Hindus, and British and American soldiers. The BBC choose to ignore such trivial details, describe him only as a “controversial” figure, and promote him as a Muslim leader working to achieve “community cohesion” despite Sudais’s following inflammatory rhetoric:

“Read history and you will understand that the Jews of yesterday are the evil fathers of Jews of today, who are all evil offspring, infidels, distorters of words, the scum of the human race whom Allah cursed and turned into apes and pigs…these are the Jews, an ongoing continuum of deceit, obstinacy, licentiousness, evil and corruption.”

Well, gosh, what can you say to that? Quite frankly such an outburst by the East London Mosque’s guest of honour would have left even Adolf Hitler at lost for words! Awestruck, admittedly, but lost for words nonetheless and not a little envious of the Sheikh’s command of anti-Semitic vituperation.

But this is not why I draw attention to said mosque; I do so for the part in played in the rape of a 27 year old woman in Whitechapel.

Abdul Makim Khalisadar, an East London Mosque-goer was convicted last week of raping the unnamed woman who, pregnant with twins, had a knife held to her throat and was punched repeatedly in the face until she said “I love you daddy” whilst Khalisadar violated her.

Khalisadar was not originally arrested in relation to the rape. He was already under police surveillance over his alleged involvement with a Kazi Nurur Rahman, a fellow Muslim sentenced to nine years imprisonment after pleading guilty to attempting to procure explosives with which to carry out a terrorist attack. Khalisadar’s computer disc was searched for evidence associating him with Rahman, where the police found downloaded images of child abuse. They DNA tested him for possible paedophile offences and subsequently linked him to the Whitechapel rape.

When he was arrested he claimed he could not possibly have carried out the rape, because at the precise time it happened he was attending a 3:00 AM sleepover at The East London Mosque, as one does, and produced seven other East London Mosque-going alibis who swore under oath that they were all with Khalisadar, dressed in pyjamas and partaking of milk and cookies as they discussed the meaning of life.

Well, they all lied. Khalisadar’s DNA was his undoing. He was sentenced to ten years in jail and his seven honourable friends were sentenced to twelve months for perverting the course of justice. Burqa-clad women in the court gallery screamed abuse at the judge, and accused the violated woman of being a prostitute. In light of a media blackout regarding the race of the woman, and the reaction of Muslim women to her, I am assuming she is English until proven otherwise.

The East London Mosque would appear to be a slightly unedifying religious institution, home as it is to purveyors of paedophilia, rapists, lying friends of rapists, friends of terrorists and Jew haters extraordinaire. To those with more than a casual knowledge of Islam, none of this is remarkable in itself, but what is remarkable is the fact that the Chairman of the East London Mosque is a certain Dr Muhammad Abdul Bari, better known as the Secretary General of the Muslim Council of Britain.


The MCB is held up by as the true face of moderate Islam by the British government, which has rewarded Dr Bari with an OBE for his efforts in the promotion of community cohesion, following on from the knighthood awarded to his predecessor, Sir Iqbal Sacrani.

But the MCB is no such thing. On top of the troublesome connections outlined in this article, they have also stated that Britain would benefit from Sharia law, they are connected with the Muslim Brotherhood — which seeks a global Islamic rule — via their affiliation with its spiritual leader, Sheikh Yusuf al Qaradawi, and are outraged he has been refused a visa to visit Britain, apparently having no problem whatsoever with a man who condones suicide bombing against Israelis, the murder of homosexuals, the beating of women, and a man who boasts that Islam will conquer Britain and the West.

In these strange totalitarian times we live in, it is no longer possible to suggest that the Muslim Council of Britain and the East London Mosque are representative not of moderate Islam, but of imperialist Islam, of genocidal Islam, of violent, oppressive, raping, gay-murdering, honour killing, forced marrying, girl-mutilating, Christian-hating, Jew-hating, suicide-bombing Islam — so I will refrain from doing so. I will let readers draw their own conclusions and would suggest they also read — if they have not already done so — Adrian Morgan’s meticulously researched article on the MCB and Fjordman’s Jihad Watch article on Muslim expansion in the West.

What I would say though, is that the last few weeks reveal a great deal about the state of Britain.

Canon Ainsworth’s wife fears that publicity over her husband’s beating will lead to racial tension in the area, by which she means she is terrified that the Muslim majority in the Shadwell enclave will exact revenge for the temerity of drawing the medias attention to their initial violence.

Bunglawalah’s disgraceful attempt on behalf of the MCB to turn the faith/hate attack into an issue of Islamophobia reveals him to be a devious man whose true intentions, along with those of Dr Bari, are not community cohesion but Islamic expansionism. The refusal of the British government to denounce the MCB, coupled with the Guardian’s promotion of Bunglawalah in the full knowledge he was being economical with the truth are symptomatic of more than just shoddy government or shoddy journalism. They are evidence of a complicit alliance with Islam in their war against Britain and the West. The quisling politicians and journalists would, in different times, be thrown from their offices for aiding and abetting an enemy, an offence of which they are most categorically guilty.

If one replaced The Muslim Council of Britain, Dr Bari, Mr Bunglawalah, the attack on a priest within church grounds and the rape of an English girl by a Muslim man — with the British National Party, Nick Griffin, Phil Edwards, the attack on an imam within mosque grounds and the rape of a Muslim girl by an Englishman, there would be, quite correctly, a national outcry led by the British government, the BBC and the Guardian. An outcry followed not only by the Islamic community, but also by the vast majority of the British people themselves, who, unlike their Muslim counterparts, really are moderate.

This is not of course the case here. After all we are merely white Christians living in our homeland bequeathed to us by the blood and sacrifice of our forefathers. There is no outcry, no rioting, no pressure to disband the MCB and its sinister leaders or to close down the virulently racist East London Mosque, and no heads to roll from political or media organisations.

But in the instance of this disgusting Muslim attack on a Christian priest, the sordid behaviour and lies of the inhabitants of Dr Bari’s mosque, and the perverse machinations that ensued, certain people and certain organisations have been seen to take very definite sides, and in so doing have made their position abundantly clear to the majority population of this country.

I’m not sure how much longer the British people will put up with all of this. A tipping point must surely be in the offing, and to judge from comments in the online MSM (including the BBC and Guardian) in relation to the incidents mentioned above, the British people are becoming increasingly — but not yet uncontrollably — angry. Not just with Islam, but with their elected representatives who appease the violent alien population and ignore and criminalise the peaceful indigenous one.

Britain is being dictated to by a violent but tiny minority of the population. Its politicians and main media outlets have taken the side of a quasi-political movement masquerading as a religion whose history is one of unremitting violence and imperialism, and a political movement at the furthest extreme from Western Civilisation as is humanly possible.

The result of this is a country exhibiting clear signs of defeat and Dhimmitude. Our clergy and armed forces are advised to discard their dog collars and their uniforms when they enter the public domain in order to avoid being attacked. This should be an impossible, unthinkable situation, but it is the sad reality of a country ruled by an elite who seek its destruction.

But, to finish on a less depressing note, the leftist enablers of the slow motion Islamic colonisation of Britain number only in their thousands, and the colonisers themselves a mere 3% of the population today. If we wanted to, we could put a stop to this tomorrow were the knowledge and the will to hand. The will is there amongst those aware of the true nature of Islam, although the numbers are currently too low — but with every passing day the numbers grow and will continue to do so until they become unstoppable.

Islam has gone too early. Various Islamic leaders openly boast they will subsume the West through demographic growth and mass immigration, which they could have done if they had lain low rather than self-detonating and engaging in open sedition. But they are out in the open now. 9/11 and 7/7, the Madrid train bombing, these were our wake-up calls and should have been Islam’s too, but they are not endowed with massive intellect. Do they really think they can carry on as they are whilst a massive majority quietly accept their fate? They appear to think we will, just as our equally ignorant leftist rulers think we will, but it ain’t ever going to happen.

There are already hints of impending revolution, the heady aroma of which hangs heavy in the air. If things continue as they are for another five years, the possibility of revolutionary change will cease to be a mere possibility and become a certified probability. And that day cannot arrive soon enough.

To say that this is absolutly vile would be the understatement of the year. While I'm not British I am still a bit surprised that I have not heard about this crime before. Anyone know any news outlets where this has been reported? Why haven't we heard about this before?

Because Bill, the media self-censors. This is true in America as well.

What I have long feared and predicted is the rise of a Cromwell, a Napoleon, from precisely this power vacuum.

People are angry. Those that can, leave, but many cannot for one reason or another. They are left defenseless and will inevitably turn to whoever can and will protect them.

I am sure some shocking incident will happen, triggering a spontaneous counter-reaction from Native Britons. The police will be sent in, or the Army, and one person will decide ... to join the rioters. This was the genesis of the French Revolution, the fall of the Shah, and many other regimes (Marcos, etc).

Because things have gone so far, when the Cromwell figure arises (and he might arise in the Netherlands, or France before Britain) he will have but one path to secure and maintain power: suppress the "Muslim enemy" of the native inhabitants of the lands and drive them out as much as possible. It will be ugly, bloody, and dangerous on all sides. Not the least of which is Iranian and other Muslim states meddling. The temptation for Iran or Pakistan to threaten European states with nukes will be hard to control, not the least of which is the path to power THERE being laid by acting as the protector of Muslims in Europe.

This is a tragedy because insistence on the rule of law, and general integration and adherence to Western civilizational standards could have prevented all this. However the self-hatred of the West by the elite and desire to create some feudalist Marxist plantation has brought only crisis to bear.

Wilders' Fitna will create more terror. And eventually, counter-terror. That is the tragedy of Western Governments failing to exercise power wisely.

Geert Wilders film while good failed to truly explain to the Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Do Nothing About Evil, Stupid Infidels the reality that All Muslims believe that the Koran is the Eternal divine word of God and must be obeyed without question. Wilders also did not include the 3 most important teachings of Islam : 9:50 – Extermination of all Non Believers i.e. infidels, 9:29 Extermination of all Christians and Jews and 9:111 – those Muslims who kill and are killed performing 9:50 and 9:29 will ascend to Paradise filled with full breasted, lustrous eyed virgins to sexually molest for all eternity. That 9/11 is Koran 9:111.

He should also have included a short statement describing the criminality of Muhammad.

That Muhammad was the First Nazi SS man. He ordered 60 massacres and personally was involved in 27 atrocities. At the massacre of the Jews of Banu Quraiza, Muhammad personally assisted in the beheading of 600 to 900 Jewish men. In order to distinguish between young Jewish boys and young Jewish men Muhammad ordered his murderous Muslim Jihadists to pull down their pants. Just the slightest traces of public hair and the young Jewish boy/man were beheaded. Their mothers and sisters were then raped by Muhammad and his Muslim men and either made into sex slaves or sold into slavery.

He needed to better explain that in Islam, deceit, torture, murder, assassination, massacre, genocide, pillage, robbery, enslavement and rape are halal (legal) acts, deserving of paradise, AS LONG AS THEY WERE PERPETRATED ON INFIDELS. These evil, immoral teachings became the ETERNAL LAWS OF ALLAH (the ANTI GOD)

That all Muslims believe the Koran is the Eternal divine word of God – the Eternal laws of God. All Muslims believe that God authored the Koran and a copy of the Koran is in heaven. The Koran remains for all Muslims, not just "fundamentalists," the uncreated word of God Himself. It is valid for all times and places forever; its ideas are absolutely true and beyond all criticism. To question it is to question the very word of God, and hence blasphemous. A Muslim's duty is to believe it and obey its divine commands without question.

That Muslims can be killed (beheaded) for doing any of the following:

Reviling Allah or his Messenger; (2) being sarcastic about 'Allah's name, His command, His interdiction, His promise, or His threat'; (3) denying any verse of the Quran or 'anything which by scholarly consensus belongs to it, or to add a verse that does not belong to it'; (4) holding that 'any of Allah's messengers or prophets are liars, or to deny their being sent'; (5) reviling the religion of Islam; (6) being sarcastic about any ruling of the Sacred Law; (7) denying that Allah intended 'the Prophet's message . . . to be the religion followed by the entire world.'

This means exactly what it says. ALL MUSLIMS BELIEVE that the Koran is the ETERNAL word/teachings of God to be followed without question. If a Muslim challenges or questions the Koran, HE IS NO LONGER A MUSLIM BUT AN APOSTATE OF ISLAM and can be killed.

The cold hard evil reality - the Koran can never be changed not even one word. When you are reading teachings of the Koran, you are reading the word of God himself and you must OBEY. THERE IS NO CHOICE. There is no exercising free will, no employing logic, reason, rationality, morality. These teachings are for all time - FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER.

This is the most important insanity that ALL Muslims believe – THAT MEANS ALL MUSLIMS. This belief in the KORNIC ETERNAL LAWS OF GOD is a disaster that has the potential to destroy humanity and civilization as we know it.


9:50 When the sacred months have passed away, THEN SLAY THE IDOLATERS (unbelievers) WHEREVER YOU FIND THEM, AND TAKE THEM CAPTIVES AND BESIEGE THEM AND LIE IN WAIT FOR THEM IN EVERY AMBUSH, then if they repent and keep up prayer [become believers] and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them

This is the notorious VERSE OF THE SWORD. 9:50 abolishes ALL peace teachings from the Koran. God is commanding as a holy duty the EXTERMINATION OF ALL INFIDELS FROM FACE OF THE EARTH.

9:29 Fight those who believe not in God nor the last day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by God and His Apostle, nor acknowledge the religion of truth, (even if they are) of the people of the Book [Christians and Jews], until they pay the jizya [poll tax] with willing submission, feel themselves subdued.”

This verse means EXACTLY WHAT IT MEANS. Convert to Islam, or pay a devastating submission tax or BE MURDERED.

For those Muslims who slay and are slain in fulfilling the above teachings, murdering Infidels, they are GUARANTEED accession to a sexual Paradise filled with full breasted, lustrous eyed eyes virgins who re – generate as virgins after each sex act to sexually molest for all eternity.



An evil Paradise of big breasted, big eyed Hurs to be sexually molested for all eternity as a reward for those who slay and are slain in the service of God.

9:111 “Lo! Allah hath bought from the believers their lives and their wealth because the Garden (Paradise) will be theirs: they shall fight in the way of Allah and shall slay and be slain”

"As for the righteous (Muslims)...We (Allah) shall wed them to beautiful virgins with lustrous eyes" - Q 44:51-54

Can you imagine murderers going to Paradise.

Bill, here's one link.

I saw it as part of an article at Faith Freedom, but it appears it was reported in Britain.

We should be thankfull the Jihadist apologists didn't come out and declare the rape and beating by Mulsims to be anti-Islamic - Government renames Islamic terrorism as 'anti-Islamic activity' to woo Muslims.

Just when I think there may be some hope for Europe, I see that there probably isn't.

Joanne said...

Half of all London's clergy have been attacked in the last twelve months; the fact that this isn't huge news in the UK shows that the powers that be - the liberal/socialist government and the media control the state in full.

It is absolutely unbelievable that people would attack London's clergy - it is unthinkable, except to those who, by way of their own religious Islamic teachings, HATE Christians.

Daphne said...

Beautifully written Paul.

The main point I think we should focus on in Paul's article is the government's (America's as well as the UK) and media's mule blind willingness to deal with Islamic groups that are so easily disproved as NOT moderate by any means.

They receive wahabi funding, host extremist speakers, shield criminals, blatantly lie, sue for special protection, indoctrinate their followers in islamism and extoll a general intolerance for western democratic rule and society. These are horrible people with a frightening agenda.

The blind acceptance of these extremist groups as the official mouthpieces of a minority segment of the population by the governing authority is extremely dangerous in a society that has chosen multi-cultural socialism as its underlying governing premise. It's especially alarming when the minorities in question have a propensity to blow stuff up and beat people to death who disagree with their religious viewpoint. The government (and media) is clearly catering to Islamic extremist views and this can only result in an absolute catastrophe for British society in the near future.

I find the situation in the UK interesting, as well as heartbreaking, because I think it is a distillation of what America is also experiencing. CAIR is vile, but widely accepted as moderate. Our immigration policy is suicidal. The elites of every stripe are in bed with the progenitors and promoters of extremist islamism. We, as a people, are slowly sliding into a socialist mindset. PCism rules.

The Western World is losing it's mind and we need to pay attention.
