“In a speech today the minister [Hazel Blears] will make her first foray into tackling radicalisation and extremism in the community. She will announce plans to ‘beat the terrorists at their own game’ by extending the fight against terrorism to gyms, cafÃ©s and the internet where increasingly-sophisticated techniques are used to recruit youngsters.
Ms Blears said: ‘This is a generational issue. We have got to get to young people – five to 15-year-olds, as well as the teenagers who are currently being targeted – and strengthen their resilience, so that they can say to the extremists “I am comfortable with being a Muslim in Britain today and I want no part of it”.'” — from this news article, describing the nearly 200 million dollars that the British government intends to use to bribe Muslim “youths” into not engaging in violent Jihad
The recently departed Karen Hughes believed in “reaching out” to “the Muslim community.” Her notion of “public diplomacy” consisted of telling Muslims how very deeply we respected them, how wonderfully Muslims were being treated and succeeding in the United States, and how very hard we were trying to meet Muslim demands and to exhibit extreme solicitousness for Muslim sensibilities (Iftar dinners at the White House and suchlike).
She expatiated on how very impressed we all were with Islam, the real Islam, not the false Islam that motivates all that vast yet tiny minority of extremists all over the known world who keep misunderstanding or misusing, for their own quite unclear ends, the “religion” of Islam.
This meant nothing. This changed nothing in the texts of Islam, the tenets of Islam, the attitudes of Islam toward Infidels and toward the most powerful, and so far most resolute (if confused) of the Infidel powers, the United States. It was taken only as a sign of weakness that could be played upon, if expressions of Muslim victimhood continued to be offered and continued to be taken at face value rather than ignored or, even better, denounced by Infidels as farcical.
For every complaint about a “war of civilizations” by Muslims should have been met with discussions of the “war that Islam has been waging for the past 1300 years on all non-Muslims,” and every attempt by Muslims to focus exclusively on the supposed sins of a West, with its transparently guilt-edged security, should have been met by references to the 60-70 million Hindus murdered by Muslim masters in the past, or to the blacks of the southern Sudan, and to the Buddhists of southern Thailand, and to all the other victims of the ideology of Islam (texts, tenets, attitudes) that have nothing to do with the West.
Now comes Hazel Blears, the British equivalent of Karen Hughes. She insists on spending money, throwing money at Muslims — because if only they can stop hanging around street corners, and can come to feel that they “belong to Britain,” then they will forget what they, and anyone else (yes, so can you, and so can any man) can read in the Qur’an, can read in the Hadith, can read in the biographies of Muhammad, about what Muslims must think and do, and to what and to whom their sole loyalty must be given. But of course none of this will change. No amount of money will change it.
But Hazel Blears is determined that this reality must never be examined. It is too painful. It is too painful for her even to begin to recognize what Islam teaches. It is too painful for her to express a hint of recognition of what Islam has always taught and of what has always explained why Muslims felt justified in conquering so many non-Muslim lands, and then subjecting the vast populations, so varied, so “diverse,” of Christians, Jews, Zoroastrians, Hindus, Buddhists, Jains, and others to a permanent status of humiliation, degradation, and physical insecurity. (In the case of those other than Christians and Jews, the alternative at first was conversion or death, and only later, to preserve the tax base — the population of jizyah-payers — were people other than Christians and Jews allowed to survive so as to keep paying the jizyah on which their Muslim masters depended.)
She’s just too dumb. She’s not up to the task.
Who, in Great Britain, is?
