New research published by the Countryside Alliance at the start of National Shooting Week has revealed wide scale misunderstanding amongst the general public about the use of guns. Nine out of 10 people thought that training of young people in the use of legal firearms would not stop misuse despite research in the UK and worldwide showing the opposite to be true.
A quote from Richard North at the EUreferendum blog, 17 May 2009
[T]he scams perpetrated by MEPs are far greater than those in which our MPs indulge. But the European Parliament had the foresight to devise a system where no receipts are required, so there is nothing for the media to get excited about.
The BBC yesterday appointed a Muslim as its head of religious programming in a radical departure from broadcasting tradition.
Police figures have revealed that immigrants are carrying out one in six rapes in Britain – and an astonishing one in THREE in London. And last month it was revealed Romanian Ali Majlat attacked a British woman so he could go to jail because his rapist elder brother wrote to him saying how cushy life was in our prisons.
When the video says that 25% of the population and 50% of all newborns "in Belgium" are Muslims, this applies to Brussels and not yet to Belgium as a whole.
Britain appears to be evolving into the first modern soft totalitarian state. As a sometime teacher of political science and international law, I do not use the term totalitarian loosely. There are no concentration camps or gulags but there are thought police with unprecedented powers to dictate ways of thinking and sniff out heresy, and there can be harsh punishments for dissent.
The great irony is that the new Nato secretary general is about to effectively apologise to the Islamic world for Mr Westergaard's drawing while he, as Danish prime minister, was part of the Bush-Blair alliance which alienated Muslims by invading Iraq.
The advance of Islam can still go much further than is the case in Western Europe at the moment, and can only be stopped when we ensure that future victims of the jihad (i.e., the population of the Netherlands and the rest of Europe) retain their freedom of expression. Muhammad, the founder of Islam, always took special care to silence his possible critics first, usually by assassination, just like his namesake Mohammed Bouyeri who carried out the assassination of Theo van Gogh. The Islamic tradition itself teaches that only after Muhammad had silenced his opponents with violence could the process of Islamization begin. It is therefore of the utmost importance that we in the Netherlands (and anywhere else in the Free World) do not go any further towards the prohibition of criticism of Islam, because Islamic ideology is not resistant to the free word.
