Islam is not a peaceful faith, according to Ukip’s only peer. Lord Pearson of Rannoch, who led Ukip in 2009 and 2010, is working on a new guide to Islam which he claims will re-educate Britain and challenge some of the misconceptions about the religion.
He wants to start a public conversation about Islam as a means of “integrating Muslim communities better”. They are, he said, “very segregated and with very high birthrates”.
He is preparing to launch an initiative called “Shall we talk about Islam” because, he said, “you may have noticed we are not allowed to talk about it”. Those that do are “branded islamophobic racists or accused of stirring up religious hatred”.
He said he wanted to challenge the assertion that Islam was a religion of peace. “We have to stop saying that . . . because it clearly isn’t.” He intends to highlight two elements of the Koran: “One is the abrogation . . . the Muslim tenet that where there is a contradiction in the Koran, it is the later verses that cancel out the earlier ones.
[TOP RATED COMMENT] “After [Muhammad] moved to Medina, and had been there five years, he said you must either convert or exile or I’ll kill you.”
Khalid Mahmood, the Labour MP for Birmingham Perry Bar, said….”The prophet always made the point to be at peace with people and he didn’t convert anybody by force.”
There would appear to be some confusion here.
[2ND EQUAL] There is no confusion. Muslims are urged to lie to non Muslims to further the cause. Research Taqiyya
[2ND EQUAL] Christianity has grown alongside our society, becoming a very English version of the faith. So many of our internal and external conflicts have involved various versions of Christianity and only now, after more than a millennium, are we in a situation where (as opposed to say, America) the church can play a part in someone’s life and have nothing to do with politics or social issues.
The relatively recent introduction of Islam en masse to our shores has resulted in growing civil unrest and it will continue to increase unless we draw a line. I’m all for freedom of religion but we can’t let the medieval mindset of ‘my religion should dictate everything I and everyone else does’ continue – it’s just completely at odds with modern society and a huge step backwards for civilisation.
[2ND EQUAL] He is spot on – it is good that he has the courage to say this, in a country where the establishment bend over backwards not to offend Muslims by surpressing the the truth. [The Times (£)] Read more
