How Islamic Immigration Reverses Civil Rights in the West

Somewhere around the middle of the 19th century, General Napier was approached by a delegation that protested the British ban on Suttee. Napier responded by saying, "It is your custom to burn widows. Very well. We also have a custom: when men burn a woman alive, we tie a rope around their necks and hang them. Build your funeral pyre and beside it my carpenters will build a gallows. You may follow your national custom - then we shall follow ours."

That was India then. Today Britain not only does not follow its national custom abroad, of hanging men who murder women, but does not even follow its own national customs at home.

The "New Britain" is a Chimera, a creature covered with grafted on parts and shiny logos, beneath which stirs a great deal of ugliness. Europe's large immigrant population has brought along its own customs and beliefs, at a time when Europe's native population no longer has any faith or confidence in its own "national customs". When even the idea of a national identity is controversial.

Nor is the problem limited to Europe alone. A combination of post-modern liberal moral equivalence and Dhimmi cowardice has rendered Western societies incapable of addressing all the ugliness that stirs beneath.

The same political establishment which in the name of social reform and open mindedness has degraded every possible national tradition across Europe, in America, Australia and in first world nations around the world-- has treated the brutal customs imported by Muslim immigrants as sacrosanct.

The moral hypocrisy bred by this double standard has in turn begun wrecking the reforms that the West has achieved, paradoxically disempowering the very vulnerable populations on whose behalf liberals once fought.

Women who in many cases went from having few rights, including the right to travel without a male guardian, take out loans, be protected against domestic abuse at home and rape outside the home, are seeing those rights reversed by the tidal flood of immigration and the refusal by political authorities and social critics to admit what is going on.

Honor killings are the endgame in repression, but there are quite many stages in between. Muslim immigrants who import tribal practices that mandate female inferiority do their best to impose them, first on their own women, and then finally on their new country as a whole.

The epidemic of gang rapes by Muslim immigrants in Sweden, Australia and elsewhere in the West are a cultural and religious problem that goes unacknowledged. They are the outgrowth of a belief system that views first non-Muslims and especially non-Muslim women as inferior and open to the taking. But they could not continue without a political and academic climate that discourages any criticism of Islam, and presumes that Western beliefs are inherently bad and non-Western beliefs are inherently good.

There could hardly be a better sanction for the whole ugly parade of atrocities carried out by Muslims in the West, than the belief imposed on their own victims that it is they who are at fault for centuries of colonialism, as if the descendants of Middle Eastern conquerors are somehow nobler than the descendants of European conquerors.

Rather than confronting the double standard and its high cost, Western politicians and academics instead insist on trying to equate Islamic cultural and religious standards with their own standards. And so there is a cottage industry for generating articles, books and slogans insisting that Islam is just as committed to equality and respect for women and minorities, as the West... if not more so.

The wages of this obscene charade, on a par with Theresienstadt, a show concentration camp maintained by the Nazis to show how well they were treating the Jews, is to cover up the real atrocities and the real erosion of civil rights for minorities in the West.

The Anti-Jewish riots, like the Tournade gang rapes in France, the terrorist bombings, the intimidation of cartoonists, the persecution of disabled people by Muslim cabbies, and so much else is part and parcel of the same problem-- Muslim intolerance for others, and their insistence that their hateful and bigoted beliefs should be considered supreme.

With growing concessions toward Islamic law, those beliefs are moving ever closer to becoming the law of the land in Western nations. But in many neighborhoods and areas, they are already the law. When women in France are intimidated into covering their heads, when an Israeli flag cannot hang in a Berlin window, when a Danish cartoonist cannot draw a cartoon, when British police wink at honor killings, when Americans can't catch a cab while carrying alcohol-- the law of Islam reigns supreme. And in doing so it robs hundreds of millions of people of their civil rights.

The suicide bombings, the honor killings, the acid throwing and other atrocities are only the tip of the iceberg. The iceberg itself is the culture of fear, violence and shame created by Muslims in the West that intimidates both Muslims and non-Muslims into obeying Sharia law, rather than the law of the land.

The hardfought legacy of human freedom is being sacrificed on the altar of Muslim immigration, and the constant pandering to Muslim sensibilities over public civil rights. We have come a long way from Napier, as Muslim women in Britain well know. Not only does England not enforce national customs abroad, but even at home, the law of the sword has replaced the laws of the United Kingdom.

King Sharia rules across Europe, violence and brutality is his penal code, and the silence and complacency of nations is his throne. The challenge is to uproot that throne before it hardens and becomes permanent. Before custom becomes law, that generations have grown up with. And the paradox is that it is the very people aiding Muslim immigration who have the most to suffer from it. The ideal of a liberal society is incompatible with a Muslim society. The two cannot and will not co-exist for long. Either the Sword of Islam or the Guarantees of Human Freedom must prevail.

National identity is only wrong if you are Caucasian , you silly sultan you.

Stogie said...

Sultan, I learned of you and your blog from Atlas Shrugs. I find in you a respected, informed and highly articulate ally. Your message is one that the West desperately needs to hear. Our cultural and actual survival depend on it.

I will return to read your blog daily. I have put it on my "must read" list.

thank you stogie, good to have another read on board

Muslim militants are rioting. Muslim 'intellectuals " offer social criticism. The mindless leftists who are so quick to condemn their own society are aligning themselves with an ally who will turn on them with a vengeance. The media pundits are quick to decry the rise of the right wing parties. These parties are the only ones speaking the truth that is obvious to everyone. If the centrist parties try to banish uncomfortable truths through name calling, they will ultimately marginalise themselves. What is most perfidious is the attempt to stack the electorate with new citizens who in America are presumed to be future Democrats and in Europe are seen as being Social Democratic supporters.
Your article is a well worded dose of common sense. We need more of the same daily lest the drumbeat of deception start to resonate in our deadened ears as truth

The Brits want to have their cake and eat it too. So they indulge Muslims and their barbaric customs but lift their pinky fingers as they sip a cup a tea while discussing the virtues of tolerance.

The whole thing reminds me of how Germans during WW
II attended operas and listened to Bach, Beethoven etc. as the Nazis slaughtered millions.

I am also becoming addict to your blog, Sultan.

You are perfectly right. Europe should now be called Eurabia.

Did you see this? After Banning Geert Wilders-- Britain Will Allow Hezbollah Official Into Country. British Home Secretary Jacqui Smith is apparently going to allow Ibrahim Moussawi, a spokesman for the Hezbullah terror group, into England to deliver a lecture later this month.

And what about the MUSLIMS RIOT at Israel's Davis Cup Match in Sweden yesterday?. This is getting ridiculous.

Here in Montreal, whenever I see an arab women wearing a wrag on her her head, I ask her politely, why is she wearing it, she is free in Canada. She says it is a religious concern. I tell her a veil has nothing to do with religion, it is a political act to remind women that they are inferior.

I sincerely believe that Westerners should refuse Muslim immigration and return the ones that are making troubles in their country of adoption.

Another accurate and candid appraisal :)

The list of concessions that Britain has made towards Muslims is quite astonishing. Only last weekend, London was the scene of yet another rally which saw Muslims all but goosestepping through the capital, while screaming for Sharia Law to be imposed.

Later this month, the London School Of Oriental And African Studies (SOAS) is hosting a conference on Islam. Among the speakers is a known Hezbollah activist who Britain is allowing into the country FOR this symposium.

SOAS is already a real hotbed of anti Israel sentiment. I have written to my MP and complained and apparently the Home Secretary is aware that many Jews are unhappy, but of course, that won't change a damn thing.

Sharia Law will gradually replace civil law. First it will start with divorce and other religious matters (similar to a Catholic obtaining an annulment from the Catholic Church or Jews and Beit Din).

Then it will progress to "culturally sensitive" matters such as dispute resolutions in place of small claims courts for Muslims. Eventually, some liberal egghead will decide that Sharia Law is a best practice model for other forms of dispute resolution.

And from there????

Slowly but surely Sharia Law will worm its way into US civil law and if not checked into criminal law. Actually, I can totally envision American Muslims getting elected as councilmen, legislators etc. and introducing laws based on Sharia Law.

OMG! Did you read this?

Minnesota Starts Shari'a Loan Program


" Gee, what a surprise — government distorts the lending market again. And while I’m mainly discounting the religious angle of this story, it’s interesting to note that the usual “separation of church and state” argument from the Left has been conspicuously absent here. Is it a legitimate function of American government, at the state or federal level, to set itself up as a lender just to help a religious sect get around its own set of beliefs? I’d say no."

"when Americans can't catch a cab while carrying alcohol..."

What on earth does this have to do with Islam. Do you know what an "open container law" is?

Sultan Knish said...

We're not talking about open containers
