A brave man, this Dr Michael Nazir-Ali.
Some of these Islamo-Christians see the writing on the wall and their warnings should not be ignored.
In his first interview since his controversial comments, Dr Michael Nazir-Ali vows not to be forced into silence
The Rt Rev Michael Nazir-Ali, who received death threats for airing his views on Islamic issues, has vowed that he will continue to speak out.
Dr Nazir-Ali has gained admirers for commenting on controversial topics
His claim that Islamic extremism has turned some parts of Britain into “no-go” areas for non-Muslims led to fierce rows between political and religious leaders over the impact of multiculturalism on this country.
Those comments were followed soon after by the Archbishop of Canterbury’s suggestion that the adoption of aspects of sharia law in Britain was “unavoidable”.
The bishops’ views in The Sunday Telegraph sparked a storm of criticism and raised questions over the role of the Church in society but, most seriously for Dr Nazir-Ali, led to threats that he and his family would be harmed.
Yet, in his first interview since the sinister calls were made to his home, the Bishop of Rochester remains steadfastly defiant. He will not be silenced. “I believe people should not be prevented from speaking out,” he says. “The issue had to be raised. There are times when Christian leaders have to speak out.”
Update: UK “No-go areas” bishop stands firm — and says “If you disagree, that must be met by counter-arguments, not by trying to silence people”
Based on this report, the UN is calling for the disestablishment of the Church of England, stating it no longer reflected “the religious demography of the country and the rising proportion of other Christian denominations”.
* According to this report from an Iranian newspaper the corrupt pigsty called the UN is even outdoing the Islamofascist propaganda machine:
The United Nations says Britain’s war on terror has left Muslims feeling alienated in a nation that is no longer predominantly Christian.
The UN is questioning the treatment of Muslims living in Britain, 80 percent of whom feel discriminated against, especially with police having permission to search people without having to show reasonable suspicion.
* Imagine that! How dare these filthy kuffars try to keep themselves free from Islamic terrorism!
Muhammad Djabir has summed it up well: “Enough is enough. They have to stop insulting Islam.” That’s the position of the OIC, Qaradawi, and all the rest. Will the West acquiesce and place Islam beyond insult, unlike virtually anything or anyone else? The jury is still out.

* Look up the word “insult”. We are not “insulting Islam”. We are TELLING THE TRUTH ABOUT ISLAM. Truth is a complete defense to defamation, even of Islam.
TRUTH is insulting to Islam. They don’t like hearing the Truth? Tough! Keep telling the Truth. Their sense of ‘insult’ is a form of oninism, an insult by themselves to themselves.
In their face with their violence, degrading to women vile oppressions, their murderous threats, suicide bombings, all the things they hate about us, our freedoms, and the Truth. They hide behind the evil veil of their primitive barbaric ‘religious’ cult of death, where the rewards of ‘virgins’ in the afterlife is more compelling than common human decency. Yet they childishly hope to threaten us into silence while they continue with their murderous cult: http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/
Islam in all its arrogance is an insult to the common decency of humanity. It has done absolutely nothing to earn our respect, and all to earn our contempt. This is not directed at Muslims individually, who may be decent human beings, but at their collective ‘religious’ actions, which have proven contemptible.
Keep telling them the Truth. Does that insult Islam? It’s a given: EVERYTHING is an insult to Islam, except slavery and submission to Mohammed’s pagan Allah god. There, I just insulted Islam, Mohammed, and Allah as well! Riot please? … Hello?

Over at NRO, Andrew McCarthy has some breaking news from the London Times on another front in the progress of soft jihad. “Knorbert the piglet,” The Times reports, “has been dropped as the mascot of Fortis Bank after it decided to stop giving piggy banks to children for fear of offending Muslims.”
That’s the new mantra, you know: “for fear of offending Muslims.” We don’t give away piggy banks (to say nothing of other “pig related items”) “for fear of offending Muslims.” We don’t draw cartoons of Mohammad “for fear of offending Muslims.” We mustn’t publish articles pointing out the demographic disparity between the Muslims of Canada and Europe and other parts of the population “for fear of offending Muslims.” We mustn’t even publish books saying critical things about “Saudis and terrorists” “for fear of offending Muslims.”
