No one in the UK is putting forward a coherent, detailed program to protect our country from sharia and the excesses of Islam.
The English Defence League is therefore proposing a
“UK Anti-Sharia Strategy” to fill this yawning gap.
Part 1: Pre-conditions:
The strategy will be ineffective without these three pre-conditions in place.
Part 2: We must make the UK unattractive to Islamists – it’s as simple as that
Those who threaten our freedoms and civilisation have no place here. Since 9/11, it is clear these include Islamists, Muslims who prefer a ghetto life and those seeking converts to Islam.
What does our anti-sharia strategy target? – This strategy aims to remove or disempower the societal enablers of actions that foster the Islamification of British society.
Who does our anti-sharia strategy target? – The strategy is directed at those who throw their Islamic weight around and act in defiance of the larger society, and at those who seek to change our society in ways that enable yet further Islamification to be demanded. We have all seen “give an inch, take a mile” from Muslim society, and polite, tolerant appeasement and submission from British society. This has to stop.
Our anti-sharia strategy does not target all Muslims – Our proposal does not affect Muslims who express their faith through private devotions, mosque attendance or family faith observances. These practices do not necessarily weaken, fracture or threaten existing British civil society, or put pressure on our society to change in ways that do not spring directly from our own British needs.
There is room for debate about the content of our strategy, but its scope and its intensity are non-negotiable if we are to survive as a nation. Here it is.
This strategy avoids restricting Muslim entry into the UK. Such a restriction would be impracticable because of definitional uncertainty, the risk of unfairness, difficult cases, an inevitably complicated appeals process, its vulnerability to fraud and its inability to deal with converts. It would also amount to restricting freedom of religion and freedom of thought.
Conclusion – Islamism and sharia are real threats to the UK and the West. Islamism is supported, condoned, and tolerated by a worryingly large proportion of British Muslims. We need to deter Islamists and sharia-pushers from coming to the UK. And we need to persuade those who are here to pull their heads in – or leave.
The American Cardinal Raymond Burke said this year he worries that many people do not understand that when Muslims become the majority in any country they have the duty to submit the whole population to sharia. Well, we are not going to let that day roll over us! We argue that the British people need to put up deliberate and effective defences against sharia now.
Our anti-sharia strategy will make the UK a less favourable environment for expansionist Islamists, while not impeding the faith observance of Muslims who are content to live in British society without demanding it become more and more Islamic. We commend it to the British people in the hope that it will stimulate:
