My foreign land

Andrew Bolt picks up on a vicar’s wife report on her stay in a Muslim land:

I have just returned to London, where I have lived since I was 11. I have been away for four years, living as an ethnic minority in a monocultural part of the world, amassing a host of stories to tell to disbelieving friends. On the whole, I am glad to return. I shan’t miss some locals’ assumptions that, being a white woman, if I was outside after dark, as I occasionally was, usually to walk the few metres between my house and the church, I must be a prostitute eager to give them a blow job. I shan’t miss the abuse my priest husband received: the daubing of “Dirty white dogs” in red paint on the church door, the barrage of stones thrown at him by children shouting “Satan”. He was called a “f***ing white bastard” more than once, though, notably, never when in a cassock. I will also not miss the way our garden acted as the local rubbish dump, with items ranging from duvets and TV sets, to rats (dead or twitching) glued to cardboard strips, a popular local method of vermin control to stem the large numbers of them which scuttled between the rubbish piled in gardens and on pavements. Yes, I am very glad to have left Britain’s second city.

For four years, we lived in inner-city Birmingham, in what has been a police no-go area for 20 years. We know that because some plain-clothed cops told us when they asked to use our vicarage as a stake-out to bust drugs rings that pervade the area. Having heard a parishioner’s tales of what his neighbours did to him when he was wrongfully suspected of having grassed up a cock-fighting ring, we refused, explaining that we had to live here, they didn’t. Even during this time we saw the area change. When we arrived, the population was predominantly Pakistani. Now Somalis are there in equal number. Most of the run-down Irish pubs were turned into mosques during our time.

Read on to see the unfixable damage wreaked by one of the most reckless social experiments visited on Britain – one the almost no one in journalism or academia dared to even protest.

Philosopher Roger Scruton despairs:

FOR WHAT IS BEING brought home to us, through painful experiences that we might have avoided had it been permitted before now to say the truth, is that we, like everyone else, depend upon a shared culture for our security, our prosperity and our freedom to be. We don’t require everyone to have the same faith, to lead the same kind of family life, or to participate in the same festivals. But we have a shared moral and legal inheritance, a shared language, and a shared public sphere. Our societies are built upon the Judeo-Christian ideal of neighbor-love, according to which strangers and intimates deserve equal concern. They require each of us to respect the freedom and sovereignty of every other, and to acknowledge the threshold of privacy beyond which it is a trespass to go unless invited. Our societies depend upon a culture of law-abidingness and open contracts, and they reinforce these things through the educational traditions that have shaped our common curriculum. It is not an arbitrary cultural imperialism that leads us to value Greek philosophy and literature, the Hebrew Bible, Roman law, and the medieval epics and romances, and to teach these things in our schools. They are ours, in just the way that the legal order and the political institutions are ours: they form part of what made us, and convey the message that it is right to be what we are…

So what happens when people whose identity is fixed by creed or kinship immigrate into places settled by Western culture? The multiculturalists say that we must make room for them, and that we do this by relinquishing the space in which their culture can flourish. Our political class has at last recognized that this is a recipe for disaster, and that we can welcome immigrants only if we welcome them into our culture, and not beside and against it. But that means telling them to accept rules, customs, and procedures that may be alien to their old way of life. Is this an injustice? Surely not. If immigrants come it is because they gain by doing so. It is therefore reasonable to remind them that there is also a cost. Only now, however, is our political class prepared to say so, and to insist that the cost be paid. And it may be that this change of heart comes too late.

In France, speaking freely on such matters can still lead to punishment by the nervous and over-mighty state:

A French court on Friday convicted the prominent commentator Éric Zemmour on charges of “provocation to racial discrimination” for televised comments in which he suggested that a majority of criminals in France were “black and Arab,” and said that employers “have the right” to deny employment to those ethnic groups. Mr. Zemmour was ordered to pay over $14,000 in legal fees and damages to the five rights groups that were the plaintiffs in the case, and also received suspended fines totaling $2,700.

Is it illegal, then, to point out other hard truths – such as the evidence that Arab culture seems not conducive to the democracy the West takes for granted?

No Arab country has ever produced a democracy, or at least a lasting democracy; none of the 22 member states of the Arab League are classified as “free”, and all do badly on press freedom and other indicators. In fact, there is only Arabic-speaking country in the world where elections are free, the press is free, and Arab citizens are free, and that’s Israel. So to believe that Arab states cannot “do democracy” is not a judgment based “without knowledge or examination of the facts”, but the opposite.

Neither is it racist to acknowledge that there are clear differences between Arab and European nations that make the former barren ground for democracy. And the major difference is that Arab countries are not “nations” as we understand it.

Inner-city Birmingham is not some sort of post-apocalyptic Islamic ghetto. It’s just poor

Writing in the Telegraph, the Islam-friendly Daniel Knowles takes issue with an article by an anonymous vicar’s wife that appears in the current issue of Standpoint magazine, and was seized on by Torygraph blogger Ed West to bolster the myth of Muslim ghettos.

The Telegraph introduces Daniel Knowles as “a young journalist specialising in economics.”

Daniel Knowles is not some sort of journalistic moonbat, he is just unable to connect the dots. Unfortunately for him,   commenters don’t buy his drivel:

Sparkbrook is not a wonderful place. It is a deprived inner-city area where the only attraction is the curry houses. It is not, however, the post-apocalyptic abandoned… Read More

Muslim Poverty Explained

Robert Spencer nails it with the example of Thailand’s ‘Restive’ South:

The intrepid mujahedin, gunning down teachers and forcing school closures in the entire province. Later on, they, along with analysts in the West, will complain about the region being poor and underdeveloped, and say it causes jihad. But this is a classic example of jihad causing poverty, and obliterating the means of improving one’s lot in life.

Gaddafi's Nurse

Nurse stands by Gaddafi, for better or for worse

LONDON: Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi’s ‘voluptuous blonde’ personal nurse is on his side even when power is slipping through his fingers, it has emerged. Galyna Kolotnytska is said to be at his side despite his vow to ‘martyr’ himself in a bloody final stand, reports the Sun. (Source)

That was yesterday. This is today:

Gaddafi’s Favorite Ukrainian Nurse: I’m Outta Here

Weasel Zippers

(WSJ) — Embattled Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi is set to be deserted by another close ally after his Ukrainian nurse said she was heading home.

Galyna Kolotnytska, described in a diplomatic cable published by Wikileaks as a “voluptuous blond” who “travel[s] everywhere” with Col. Gadhafi, called her family in Kiev on Friday to say she intends to return to Ukraine, her daughter told daily Segodnya.

“Mom got in touch yesterday. She said she was now in Tripoli,” Tetyana Kolotnytska said. “She spoke in a calm voice, asked us not to worry and said she’d soon be home.”

According to the cable from September 2009, contacts in Tripoli told U.S. diplomats that Col. Gadhafi “relies heavily” on Ms. Kolotnytska, then 38, as “she alone ‘knows his routine.’”

The cable also reported claims from unnamed sources that the eccentric Libyan leader and the nurse, part of a retinue of four Ukrainians, “have a romantic relationship.”

Ms. Kolotnytska’s daughter said her mother had been in Libya for nine years, originally employed in a hospital before starting work for Col. Gadhafi.

“Other Ukrainian women also work for him as nurses. Mom is one of them,” she said. “For some reason, he doesn’t trust Libyan women with this matter.”

'Muta', temporary marriage or legalized prostitution

Red Square presents:

It is not prostitution as long as it is called “temporary marriage,” the hustler is a mullah, and the pimp cut is an “obligatory donation.”

Pimp My Mosque: Speech Codes of the East and West

As seen on Pajamas Media

Holy Shiite! Pious pilgrimage just got more exciting at Imam Reza’s shrine in Iran, where for a reasonable fee (see price list below) a mullah can join any eager pilgrim in holy matrimony of “temporary marriage” with his choice of a lovely, fully hijabed, and properly veiled prostitute for a period between 5 hours to 10 days. Pedophiles welcome: girls as young as 12 years of age are standing by. Not to worry, the mullahs got them covered: all “temps” under 14 must show a written consent from their fathers or male guardians (no doubt on advice from the recently fired, now freelancing ACORN specialists).

We are not making this up.

According to a document obtained by Planet-Iran.com, the mullahs are doing it not for the money (what’s a 5% pimp cut for a holy shrine?), but out of the noble desire “to elevate the spiritual atmosphere, create proper psychological conditions and tranquility of mind” of “those brothers who are on pilgrimage to the shrine.” Verily, what true believer can maintain tranquility of mind and not succumb to sexual yearning while away from his other wives for nearly a week? No pious man should have to suffer such inhumanity.
~
Here’s how it works. The mullah performs a ceremony that sanctions the “morality” of the relationship for a period specified in the “prenuptial agreement” (not more than 10 days, minimum charge 5 hrs) – in direct proportion to the size of the “bridegroom’s” wallet. When the “godliness” of their prepaid romance expires, the “honeymooners” descend from the moral high ground to get an easy, Sharia-compliant divorce.

Visitors Down Under … Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, (one of) the dictator’s heirs. Seif is a great supporter of the global jihad, especially in the Philippines, Thailand and Africa.

THE sons of the Libyan dictator Colonel Muammar Gaddafi may have salted away millions of dollars in oil money in hidden Australian investments during a series of visits to Sydney, Perth and Queensland over the past nine years.

In a trip to Sydney in 2006, million-dollar apartments in ”the Toaster” at Circular Quay and several three-bedroom units in the Kent Street apartments worth up to $6 million each were inspected.

The Klintoons: in search of the moderate Taliban

Slick Willie and his execrable wife have done enormous damage to America. They must be stopped.

Clinton: Split Taliban from al-Qaeda for peace in Afghanistan

This report explains:

“Key civilian leaders under President Barack Obama have put a focus on political reconciliation, arguing that many rank-and-file Taliban are simply seeking a livelihood and can be co-opted.”

The purpose of jihad in all its forms is to impose Islamic law. The refusal to acknowledge that reality leaves officials desperately chasing rabbits known as “underlying causes,” in the blind but adamant faith that there must – must — be something driving Islamic jihad other than, well, Islam.

Totally gaga:

But what do the Taliban and al-Qaeda have in common? They are jihadist groups dedicated to the imposition of Islamic law, and the brutal treatment of any person or nation (or ancient Buddhist statue) that stands in the way. One has a global reach; one is a regional operation. But the goal is the same.

Now… how does one hope to “split” that? The hope is that the Taliban fighters are largely insincere about this agenda and just want a paycheck. As the military saying goes, “hope is not a method.” In any event, it is not a good method, and even less so when “hope” translates into throwing good money after bad in fruitless attempts to buy loyalty from a fighter who knows, as Muhammad said, that “War is deceit.”
