Trojan Horse debate: We were wrong, all cultures are not equal
Let me quote Myriam Francois-Cerrah, a writer and Muslim convert, who told Channel 4 News on Tuesday that she rejected calls by the Prime Minister and Michael Gove, the Education Secretary, for schools to promote British values. “In many ways, the problem is creating a hierarchy of cultures when you say you need to promote British values,” she objected. “What does that say to children in a classroom whose heritage harks from outside the British Isles? It says this country has superior moral values and you are coming from some backward culture whose values you … must not consider equal to our own.”
Funnily enough, that’s exactly what we are saying, Myriam. Spot on! A Muslim girl who winds up in Bolton or Luton should thank her lucky stars she doesn’t live in Sudan – or Pakistan, where, only last month, a woman was stoned to death by her family for the crime of marrying a man of whom they disapproved. Farzana Parveen’s father explained: “I killed my daughter as she had insulted all of our family by marrying a man without our consent, and I have no regret over it.”– More from Allison Pearson @ the Telegraph
Trojan horse inquiry: ‘A co-ordinated agenda to impose hardline Sunni Islam’
A draft of the report, marked as sensitive, states: “Left unchecked, it would confine school hildren within an intolerant, inward-looking monoculture that would severely inhibit their participation in the life of modern Britain.” …
extremismIslam in the schools outlined in the report include:
â€¢ Anti-western rhetoric, particularly anti-US and anti-Israel.
â€¢ Segregationism – dividing the world into us and them, with them to include all non-Muslims and Muslims who disagree.
â€¢ Perception of a worldwide conspiracy against Muslims.
â€¢ Attempts to impose its views and practices upon others.
â€¢ Intolerance of difference, whether the secular, other religions or other Muslims.

Not “Migrants”- Muslim Insurgents!
Italy struggles to deal with growing flood of migrants willing to risk their lives to reach the nearest European shores.
These people are not ‘migrants’- Â they are insurgents.Â These welfare shoppers are dole bludgers, criminals, rapists, jihadists… you name it. Nearly all of them are illiterate savages. This is excess humanity straight out of the darkest African sewers.
First, here are a couple of links that should bring you to the show.

Those of you who know how to use aÂ VPNÂ may want to set their location for somewhere in England and watch it on the original link.
This documentary starts out fairly well and does some reasonable exposing of some of the horror that takes place at schools now run by islamic authority. But it quickly turns on Jewish and Christian schools and tries to make the moral equivalence, if not directly by inference, that not teaching evolution as fact is equivalent to a Muslim school having speakers in who advocate murder of homosexuals and islamic supremacy etc. etc.
Yes, one of the most extreme sects of Jews seem to have underground schools where kids are taught in substandard buildings and probably do not get the standard British education among other things, and, if it is as presented, it should be stopped immediately. But the Christian schools in their example just taught creation in science class, (which is wrong no matter what you believe, as creation is a faith based idea and non-quantifiable and therefore not science even if true) and cannot be compared to what takes place in these muslim schools.
It is unfortunate that in the interest of ‘balance’ they had to pretty much destroy some solid points they made and expose some genuine problems which are a threat to British societies and even sovereignty by comparing it to annoying but relatively banal problems that no-doubt do exist in other faith based schools.
When they can find a Jewish or Christian school that advocates killing of the other, of treating music as a crime or one of the other myriad issues at Muslim schools which are anathema to British culture and history and law, then they can be included. Sadly though, by the end, it looked like a kind of dhimmitude on the part of the video maker as they tried to hard to say that it didn’t represent real islam, and that other religions do this too without any sort of percentage that might give a hint as to how widespread it might be across these faith groups.
In any case, its worth watching even if it makes you angry by the end.
