It has been an interesting week on a number of levels. I had a most illuminating dinner with a group including Douglas Murray that offered a bracing introduction to British dhimmitude: we had to move our dinner at the last minute since the proprietors of the George Restaurant didn’t like us discussing jihad and Islamization on the premises. In fact, when I returned to the George the next night with the producers of the film, we were not allowed entry because the previous night we had been discussing jihad and Islamic supremacism. That’s the George Restaurant, 114 Glengall Grove, Isle of Dogs, London, E14 3ND, telephone number 020 7987 2954.
When not getting bounced out of pubs, the intrepid Jason Campbell of the Christian Action Network and I took strolls into a few mosques: the North London Central Mosque, aka the Finsbury Park Mosque, old haunt of the one-eyed, hook-handed jihadi Abu Hamza; the expansive and prosperous Islamic Cultural Centre on Baker Street; the likewise large (and rapidly expanding) East London Mosque and London Muslim Centre; and the Stockwell Green Muslim Centre, where teenagers are recruited for jihad. Had a few interesting conversations with folks inside those mosques. We also went by the Masjid-e-Ilyas near the site of the 2012 Olympics — where Muslims want to build the largest mosque in Europe, capable of holding 70,000 people. But we were not allowed in.
