Pat Condell -The EDL and Our Crippling Fear of the Truth about Islam

The EDL is not racist or fascist. Islam is a religion, not a race. Moreover, the EDL is a response to the jihad and not fascism mid-twentieth century. It is misleading to descibe the EDL as "extreme right". It is best described as a nationalist organization.

I find that business of the "no go" areas in Britain to be very disturbing.  A state should have ONE LAW for all its people, not cafeteria pick-and-choose law for different cultures operating under the same roof.  What Britain has done here is damned dangerous and does not bode well for their future governmental integrity.

Parts of London are now 'no go' areas with Muslim patrols enforcing Islamic law while the government continues to appease Islam. Holy Fucking Shit! That's absolute insanity!  Though, I guess I shouldn't be too surprised.  When I was in Paris in 2004, I was staying in a hotel in Montmartre. Walking around that neighborhood, I thought I was in Tripoli or Baghdad. I imagine it too, has only gotten worse.

 It was unprincipled and wrong for the British government to ban Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer from entering the United Kingdom to speak at an EDL rally. Who are the true Islamaphobes ? Those who attempt to peacefully demonstrate against the jihad or those who are so scared of it, like Prime Minister Cameron, that they will give up fundamental democratic rights in order to appease it ? I agree with Pat Robertson that the EDL are a symptom of Islamification, the inept government response to it and the alliance of Islam and the far left wing.

The EU Muslim population is around 21 million and continues to grow through immigration and high child birth rates. France has the biggest Muslim population of around 6 million but with a total population over 50 million will resist Islam longer than Sweden where it is estimated that the native Swedes will be outnumbered by Muslims by about 2050. The eventual Islamification of Western Europe will be hastened if Turkey is admitted to the EU.

So you found many Brits loathed George W Bush but the country still joined him in war and is a close English speaking ally like Australia. Of course, things have got a lot worse in Europe over the last ten years. Parts of London are now 'no go' areas with Muslim patrols enforcing Islamic law while the government continues to appease Islam.

I like Pat Condell. He always seems to speak truth to power. Not familiar here in the US with EDL, but I do recall when Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer were banned by the UK from speaking at an EDL rally. And, in my humble estimation, that was complete and total bullshit by the British government. The principal of free speech is not allowing that speech with which you agree (Stalin, Hitler and Ayatollah Khomenie allowed that), but that speech with ehich you disagree. 

In may last trip to the UK and France, in 2004, I recall talking to people in pubs and bistros who loathed George Bush. And, to be honest as an American, I am not a fan of that Christian fundamentalist asshole. However, I could even see then, the Islamitization of the UK, and much worse, France. I just hope you folks across the Atlantic put up a defense. If not, we rationalists in America will be left with a fight to the death between two vile superstitions - Christianity and Islam.

L'EDL n'est pas raciste ou fasciste. L'islam est une religion, pas une race.

Par ailleurs, l'EDL est une réponse à la jihad et non liés au fascisme milieu du XXe siècle. Il est trompeur de descibe l'EDL comme «extrême droite».

Elle est décrite comme une organisation nationaliste.
