One of the problems with modern politics is that the debate on issues such as Islam is defined by the media, not the truth. The media rely on stereotypes in order to simplify issues for an increasingly dumbed down public whose attention spans and literacy falls year after year and hence politics, reflecting the media, becomes fixated also with stereotypes.
For instance - these are some of the usual stereotypes we see promulgated in the media and politics - the BNP are all knuckle dragging skinheads, Ethnic Minorities are the primary victims of racism, Islam is a religion of peace, racism is a problem of whites etc etc.
The tragedy is that rather than confronting the media, politics has been often complicit with the media.
This stereotype thinking now even infects nationalism.
For example how many times have I had to read the statement from nationalists that Islam is a threat to the West.
Many nationalists seek to peddle this nonsense, and by so doing merely empower the enemies of nationalism.
This statement that 'Islam is a threat to the West' now seems to run alongside the old classic 'the Jews run the world' in the margins of nationalism as the two classic conspiracy theories of the far right.
Both are utter nonsense.
Islam has never been a threat to the West. The time has come for a more cohsive critique of Islam that is based on reality and not the media stereotypes.
It is mass immigration which is one of the primary threats to the West, not Islam.
Islam is a meme, a religious idea. It is not even a single meme, it is a collection of various different memes which each exist in constant opposition with the others.
Islam does not exist other than an expression of adopted human beliefs.
Islam is neither a monolithic religion nor a set of cohsive ideas. At the moment the primary cause of so many muslim deaths in the world is not due to the JIA (Jews, Infidels and Americans as the insurgents in Iraq call the occupation forces), it is due to the internicine warfare on obscure theological points between the various sects of Islam.
The myth of muslims being slaughtered by the US and UK and Crusaders, is simply nonsense. It is Muslims killing Muslims that is the primary threat to the safety of Muslims in the world today.
Islam has never been a single entity, as it is as much a single religious entity as Christianity.
The idea that Catholicism and Protestantism are both to be labelled as 'Christian' and therefore the history of violence, wars and hatred between both them minimised to irrelevancy is anti-history and anti-truth.
Christianity is defined by the sects and conflicts within it, and so is Islam.
The historical record also shows that Islam has never been the primary cause of Christian deaths, it is Christians killing Christians that has been the primary cause of Christian deaths in history.
Even the times when one section of Islam has been resurgent historically and posed a threat to the West, these incursions into the West by one section of the resurgent Islamist fath were caused by weaknesses in the West which arose as a result of wars, schisms and religious divisions between Western nations within 'christendom'.
It was our weakness which invited attack.
The issue is not Islam.
If the people who hold extremist Islamist beliefs were never allowed to enter our society in the first place, or they were removed from our society once discovered, then the issue of Islam would be meaningless.
It is demographics that threatens democracy not Islam.
It is the fact that Britain has been allowed to become Britannistan, the central orgainising hub for global jihad, that is the threat we face. And that threat has been as a result of the actions of the same politicians and political elite that have now sent our troops to fight in their wars against 'Islamist terrorism'. They invited the extremists into the UK to claim asylum once they were being hunted in their own nations for slaughtering their own people.
The UK is under threat because we allowed the terrorist scum and extremist scum of the world to enter the UK and claim asylum, with their hands still wet with the blood of those they had killed. Our politicians allowed them to enter and organise their terror networks from the UK. We allowed extremists and extremist literature funded and supported by saudi Arabia and Pakistan to enter our country and infect the moderate Muslim communities in the UK.
In the name of political correctness, asylum, multi-culturalism and political correctness we allowed the terrorists and extremists to take over sections of the muslim communities in the UK.
In the event of any extremist sect within Islam becoming resurgent within the UK and threatening the state, then the primary victims of this sects expansion will be their fellow Muslims.
Then it will be the Jews, Homosexuals, Nationalists then Christians.
Just like Christianity the primary victims of muslims has always been fellow muslims.
A few years ago I read the 'Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam' by Robert Spencer. Then a few months ago I found out that Spencer was a raging Zionist nutcase whose loyalty to Israel was the primary basis of his hatred of Islam.
It was then that the reality dawned. It is the division within Islam between Sunni and Shiite which is today the primary driver of the New Axis of the world - that of the US / Saudi Arabia and Israel.
Take for instance Iraq. The US invasion of Iraq occured for three primary reasons ;
1)To get hold of the oil as Peak Oil hits
2) To secure safety of Israel from Shiite Iran
3) To ensure the safety of Sunni Saudi Arabia from Shiite Iran
So called nationalists will talk about issue 2 but never 1 or 3.
The media will talk about issue 2 but never 1 or 3.
Each has their own reson to lie and distort reality for their own ends.
It was the Israeli AIPAC lobby in the US who used the American media to start the drum beat for war. Without the US media pumping out the propaganda against Iraq then no ar could have begun. The public had to be indoctrinated first to accept a war. This is proved by the utter lies and falsehoods that the media pumped out to get us into the war.
The next time someone suggests we 'go easy ' on the media then remind them that the blood of British soldiers that flows in Afghanistan and Iraq is down to them pumping out lies in their papers in order to get us to go to war in the first place.
If it was not for the support of the Saudi Arabians and their oil and their funding of the US SHADOW GOVERNMENT of the Military-Industrial Block whose arms they buy in their billions, and their fear of a resurgent Iran uniting with Shiite dominated Iraq, then the war would not have occured.
It was only because the US media, AIPAC, the Saudi Arabian lobby groups and the Shadow Government wanted war that the war went ahead.
The fact that the terrorists who flew the planes on 911 were mainly Saudi Arabians, that it is Saudi Arabia who is the biggest funder of Wahhabist extremist groups linked with terrorism around the world, that AIPAC runs the US foreign policy to put the interests of Israel first and that the US and UK media told lies to get us into the war in Iraq are all issues we are just expected to forget.
Those that seek to propagate the idea that Islam is the threat do so because they have an agenda.
It is not Islam that is the threat, it is sections of Islamist thought that have been allowed to grow beyond control and infect communities that is the threat - not Islam.
Islam, as I explained above, does not exist as a single entity. It is a set of competing ideas seeking to secure a hold on human minds.
If the leaders of the West, who were all white, had never opened the gates to the West and allowed in immigrants infected with their own extremist variants of the memes of Islam, then those variants of Islam would now not be infecting minds and be a terrorist threat to the West.
Those terrorists in the West that threaten our safety should be executed or deported, but whilst we are pepared to send our soldiers to die in Iraq and Afghanistan fighting terrorists the same politicians that sent them to war refuse to either execute the terrorists in our nations or deport their supporters from our own nations.
This is pure insanity.
The fact is a small and tiny minority of Islamist lunatic terrorists do represent a threat to our society is real, but the threat they offer is minimal compared to the dangers the media, the military-industrial blocks, our dependence on foreign oil and the lobby groups represent to our democracy.
Blaming the bogeyman of 'Islam' as being the primary 'threat' to the west is rubbish.
It is immigration, the media, the military-industrial blocks, our dependence on foreign energy sources and the power of the lobby groups in our political systems that are the primary threats to the democracies of the west.
It these groups who have undermined the ability of the West to close the gates and end immigration and return many of those present within our nations and who block us from dealing with the tiny groups of various Islamist terrorist sects that threaten our social safety in the name of political correctness.
What I would hope to see arise one day is an Islam of the Spirit, as opposed to an Islam of the Book.
This would be an Islam that no longer kills in the name of God but that sees that all life is holy and is an manifestation of God.
This would be an Islam that no longer kills their fellow Muslims and that regards the territory it needs to conquer is not the earth, but the souls of men with spiritual enlightenment.
Christianity also needs this internal spiritual revolution as well.
Many years ago I visited Tunisia on holiday. I was walking with some friends on the shoreline when we got caught in a sand storm. The sand was flying so hard that it was literally scouring our eyes.
I told the people I was with to sit down and began to build a shelter from some wood that lay in the sand to deflect the sand and wait until the storm passed.
From seemingly out of nowhere a man in long black robes appeared from behind the sand dunes and began to help me build the shelter.
When we had finished I said thank you and he smiled and walked away.
In the hearts of all people is a capacity for kindness and humanity.
For nationalists to do as the media do and depict all Muslims and the variants of Islam as the same is merely a way to get us to take our eyes off the real enemy that has usurped and destroyed our democracy.
