ER Editor: The publication date of this piece via The Gatestone Institute was March 22, 2018. While the question the title poses might have been regarded as a stretch of the imagination by ER, we no longer believe that to be the case. Ioan Ratiu in “The Milner-Fabian Conspiracy: How an international elite is taking over and destroying Europe, America and the World” walks us through the fabian-style (i.e. very slowly unfolding) process by the money power, including royalty, to Islamize the UK in particular, and Europe in general since around the early 20th century. Her summarizing comment on p.424 is thus:
What becomes evident is that we are dealing with the systematic promotion of Islam by individuals and groups connected with shadowy organizations like the Fabian Society, representing political and economic interests that were unknown to the general public.
That some of the UK’s highest political representatives currently have done virtually nothing to protect the indigenous population against truly shocking criminal acts by certain sections of the Muslim community is hardly surprising in the context of Ratiu’s lengthy examination of the elite preference for Islam and promotion of it through official policy.
Is the United Kingdom an Islamist Colony?
- If the gang members were “Asian,” records were not kept. Such is the cowardice and criminal negligence of the police involved.
- These Sharia courts mean that the legal system of a foreign political ideology, Islam, has created a parallel legal system in which Sharia is placed above English common law. It is thought that some 30 to 85 Sharia courts are operating in England and Wales alone.
- “The Muslim Brotherhood’s foundational texts call for the progressive moral purification of individuals and Muslim societies and their eventual political unification in a Caliphate under Sharia law. To this day the Muslim Brotherhood characterises Western societies and liberal Muslims as decadent and immoral. It can be seen primarily as a political project.” — Prime Minister David Cameron, 2014, regarding a report withheld from the public [Emphases added].
The United Kingdom, once an imperial power, now sounds more like a colonial vassal. The actions of British government officials suggest that the will of the government has collapsed in the face of terrorist and ideological assaults by the forces of political Islam. The ideology is being spread by, among others, the Muslim Brotherhood, according to a major report of the British government itself. A number of Muslim Brotherhood front groups have been identified as such by government reports such as those of the United Arab Emirates. These include the UK based Cordoba Foundation, the Muslim Association of Britain, and Islamic Relief UK. All three of these organization are listed as terrorist entities in the United Arab Emirates as well.
Those officials who have submitted to the Islamist cause include Prime Minister May, formerly the Home Secretary, who had responsibility for police, immigration, and intelligence activities. Having been Home Secretary from May 12, 2010 to July 13, 2016, she cannot argue she is unaware of the UK’s internal problems. She was also Home Secretary when the damning Jay Report on the mass rape of girls in Rotherham was made public.
The problem has become so widespread, it can now be asked if the British government has moved into a colonial mindset. In other words, the UK now appears to have the status of a dhimmi: those who live in Islamist conquered lands but through submission are allowed to keep their original faith. The British government appears more willing to respond to the demands of the Islamist ideological offensive than it does to protecting its own subjects against mass rapes, honour killings, Female Genital Mutilation, terrorist attacks and the generalized oppression of women by Sharia councils (courts).
After the June 2017 Islamist terrorist attack, which killed seven persons, Prime Minster May appeared in public and stated that “enough was enough.” She said that there was “far too much tolerance of extremism.” On the surface, it appeared that the Prime Minister had actually had enough of the Islamist ideology, extremism and terrorism in the UK.
Alas, the words turned out to be just the usual empty platitudes from No 10. Shortly after the PM’s statement, Hezbollah and Hamas flags were openly flown in London during the Al Quds Day March on June 18, 2017. Not only did the UK government fail to attempt to stop this Hezbollah inspired march; the UK police assisted them by providing security and protection.
It is not just the Prime Minister who is the problem. In Manchester last May, after the suicide bombing which killed 22 and injured hundreds at the door of a music concert, the mayor, Andy Burnham, had some advice: what was needed was for everyone to “work together” and “terrorists will never beat us.” Mayor Burnham also said that the best plan was to “carry on with day to day life“. How come he failed to say that the best plan was not to “carry on”; that perhaps the best plan was to cease submitting to the will of a foreign ideology and act to counter its schools, proxies, fundraisers, apologists and front groups?
The problem in the UK is not just the fear instilled in the body politic by terrorist attacks. The well-documented sexual assaults by South Asian and Muslim mass-rape gangs attacking children in the UK is another major crime wave crushing the confidence of the British in their own government.
In March of 2018 another coverup was exposed concerning a series of mass rapes, druggings, sex trafficking and murders in Telford. The report identifies that the problem began in the 1980s, was identified by social workers in the 1990s; and only in 1996, a resident went to police with information about a key abuser who was selling underage girls for sex. Police, social workers, and the town council covered up the widespread abuse for decades as they were afraid of being called “racist.” The eleven-year-old girls involved were identified as “prostitutes” as though children can even be said to make such a choice. If the gang members were “Asian,” records were not kept. Such is the cowardice and criminal negligence of the police involved.
The counter-extremism think-tank Quilliam, run mainly by Muslims of South Asian origin, says that 85% of those convicted of mass rape are of South Asian origin. Seven in ten of those convicted are believed to be of Pakistani-Muslim heritage. Of note, Asians make up only 7% of the total UK population.
The first major case of rape gangs grooming children apparently took place in Rotherham, UK. The Jay Report noted that some 1,400 mainly white children, aged 11 to 14, had been drugged, raped, and forced into sexual slavery while being trafficked throughout the region between 1997 and 2013. A variety of civic officials, town councilors, police, and the local Member of Parliament had evidently been aware of the abuse for years but had remained silent. Those who spoke out were silenced.

Three of the previous inquiries from 2002, 2003 and 2009 had found similar issues, but those reports were “effectively suppressed.” At the time, UK Home Secretary Theresa May described it as “institutionalized political correctness.” The Member of Parliament for Rotherham, Denis McShane, said that as a “Guardian reading lefty,” he thought that there was a culture of not wanting to rock the multicultural community boat, if I may put it like that.
The mass rape problem is endemic but is not limited to Rotherham and Telford. It has also affected, among others places, Bristol, Derby, Rochdale, Peterborough, Newcastle, Oxfordshire, Bradford, Keighley, Banbury, Halifax, Leeds, Birmingham, Norwich, Burney, High Wycombe, Dewsbury and Middlesbrough.
The common link in all these cases is that the grooming gangs are of south Asian origin and that the responsible authorities chose silence over the risk of “offending” them by appearing racist or “Islamophobic.” If mass rape of a country’s children over a period of decades is not enough to force a government to act, the question is, what is?
Meanwhile, as reports of the latest mass rape scandals in Telford were spreading, Brittany Pettibone and Martin Sellner (pictured, at left and at right) were attempting to enter the United Kingdom. They had planned to present themselves at the Speaker’s Corner in London’s Hyde Park and to interview Tommy Robinson, the former leader of the English Defence League. Martin Sellner is a well known Austrian activist and student who is also the leader of the “new right” Identitarian Movement. Brittany Pettibone is a self-described “American nationalist”. Both were refused entry by UK officials on suspicion of “inciting hatred and tension between local communities”.
The eminent scholar of Islam Robert Spencer was also banned from entering England in 2013, at the same time as “the UK Home Office admitted the Pakistani Muslim cleric Syed Muzaffar Shah Qadri, whose preaching of hatred and jihad violence is so hardline that he is banned from preaching in Pakistan.
Dr. Martin Parsons, head of research at the Barnabas Fund, which helps Christians escape persecution, pointed out that Britain grants visas to Islamic leaders who demand the execution of Christians accused of blasphemy against the Islamic faith, and it routinely grants asylum to senior members of the Muslim Brotherhood despite the fact that they repeatedly incite violence against the Egyptian Coptic Christians.
This month, Canadian citizen Lauren Southern (pictured above, middle) was also detained. Ms. Southern is a political activist and Internet personality with known right wing views. She had run for the Libertarian Party in the 2015 Canadian federal election and worked for Rebel Media. Her entry to the UK was refused as she poses a threat to the “fundamental interests of society” and was further identified as a threat to the “public policy of the United Kingdom.” She was denied entry under anti-terrorism legislation (Schedule 7 of the Terrorism Act of 2000) even though no association to terrorism was made.
The UK government seems incapable of tackling the mass rape gangs in the UK and yet they willfully allowed Youssef Zaghba to enter the UK, despite his being on a security watchlist and authorities warned that he was a terrorist. Mr. Zaghba then proceeded to help carry out the terrorist attack in June of 2017 on a London Bridge.
The same UK government, however, stops journalists and activists from entering as they are supposedly a threat to the “fundamental interests of society.
Women and Power
Ironically, even women in positions of power such as Prime Minister May submit to jihadi threats and aid in silencing the ensuing criticism. Another example, Joyce Thacker, was the £130,000-a-year (USD $180,000) Strategic Director of the City of Rotherham’s children’s services department for five years, while the ongoing rapes and sex trafficking of eleven to fourteen-year-old girls was proceeding apace. Not only did the child services department do nothing to help the 1,400 girls being raped and forced into prostitution, she and others went out of their way to silence anyone who tried to speak out against it. The reason for the enforced silence over a period of years was identified in the UK government report as “institutionalized political correctness.” Of note, Joyce Thacker, after being exposed, received a £40,000 pay-off from the local Labour-run authority when she left her position.
Female Labour Member of Parliament Naz Shah also apparently supports the position of the rapists over that of girls who were raped. In a rather startling tweet, she stated that the abused girls in Rotherham and elsewhere just need “shut their mouths for the good of diversity.” For her, the ideology of diversity is more important than the mass rape and trafficking of girls.
The female head of the London Metropolitan Police Force, Cressida Dick, has also tried to downplay the mass rape of girls by stating that rape gangs have “been part of our society for centuries.” The problem with her statement is that no evidence exists to support her position.
In addition to women in government who hold such toxic positions on the rape of girls, it seems that Lily Allan, a British singer, actor and TV presenter, also does. When she was questioned on the idea of whether thousands of young British girls (11 to 14) would have avoided being raped if their rapists had not been allowed to immigrate into the UK, she replied, “Actually, there’s a strong possibility they would have been raped and abused by somebody else at some point. That’s kind of the issue.”
Free Speech Crushed
The Lord Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, claims that the London Met Police are heavily engaged in attacking hate crimes. This appears to have been confirmed by the London Met who stated on their own website that “Currently, we have over 900 specialist hate crime investigators working across London’s dedicated hate crime Community Safety Units (CSUs).” These officers are apparently working on “hate crimes” such as Facebook postings and other social media platforms, while London suffers from terrorist attacks, acid attacks, moped gang swarmings and an increasing number of young people dying in the emerging plague of knife crimes. The question must be asked about priorities here and whether the Mayor and the London Met are more interested in tackling real crimes or in suppressing the blow-back they create.
The UK’s Two Legal Systems
It has become a common practice that marriages in some mosques in the UK are not registered with the civil authorities. When Muslim women living in the UK are faced with issues of child support, divorce and wife beating, they often find that their marriage was not legally recorded.
When they try to work with Sharia tribunals, these women then find out they have few rights and are often told that the fault is their own and they need to return to their abusive husbands. As reported in The Telegraph:
“When Aisha approached a Sharia council in the UK about divorcing her husband, she faced a barrage of questions. ‘Have you been supportive to him?’ she was asked. ‘Are you meeting his needs? Cooking and cleaning?’ She was told to go back and be ‘a better wife’. Her husband had repeatedly assaulted her.”
These courts mean that the legal system of a foreign political ideology, Islam, has created a parallel legal system in which Sharia is placed above English common law. It is thought that some 30 to 85 Sharia courts are operating in England and Wales alone.
Female Genital Mutilation
Girls in the United Kingdom are being taught to put spoons down the front of their underwear if they fear they are being shipped to Africa or South Asia to suffer Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) at the hands of their parents. The spoons will trigger metal detectors at the airport and allow the girls to explain to security (in private) why they fear going abroad.
