More than 40 years ago, Enoch Powell warned of the threat that mass immigration posed to the culture and security of Britain. Few believed him. What we have now is George Galloway: a pro-Islamofascist, anti-Britain, anti-capitalism product of classic third world, unassimilated, rabble-rousing engineering of an election.
Daily Mail George Galloway’s victory shows that we now have our ghettos. We have segregation. We have a divided land with the consequences of not assimilating failed third-world backward cultures within us. These are growing and multiplying generation after generation.
Without the reason of modern Western Democractic peoples that acquired democracy over time and sacrifice- the people who voted for Galloway might as well be going for any demagogue in Islamabad or Pyongyang.
Galloway’s victory is dangerous and demonstrates the ugly alliance between the far left and Islamists.
Islamists are non-assimilated Muslims who place their Islamic identity above an identity gained from centuries established indigenous British peoples. They would dismiss that remarkable of all Liberal British inventions the common law, for Sharia. Galloway actively promotes this idea.
He promotes multiculturalism, or cultural egalitarianism- the idea that all cultures are equal- the absurd idea that Sharia and the common-law are the same. He and his radical Islamist followers do this with contempt for British people on their own soil.
George Galloway’s victory in the Bradford West election was remarkable. It was also a dangerous illustration of the foothold Islamist extremism now has in our political life thanks to multiculturalism.
His margin of victory was huge for a by-election, at over 10,000 votes, capturing in the process over 50% of the electorate.
That such a massive swing was possible can largely be accounted for by the fact that almost half the electorate in Bradford West was from a single ethnic minority group that voted as a single block and switched allegiance from Labour to Galloway.
They did so because Galloway stood on a nakedly sectarian manifesto, proclaiming his hatred of alcohol, growing his beard, adopting Islamic phraseology and whipping up hatred against our troops in Afghanistan.
Block voting along ethnic lines is now commonplace in Britain. This issue was forewarned by Powell. One of the many flaws of multiculturalism is that it has created divisive sectarian ghettos in our cities up and down the land.
Bradford is one of the clearest examples of this, with neighbourhoods and districts dramatically split along ethnic, cultural and religious lines. It is no surprise that, in the absence of assimilation, the politics of such places is dominated by alien concerns.
Indeed, it was in Bradford that the copies of the Satanic Verses novel were first publicly burned in the streets by fanatics calling for Salmon Rushdie to be executed. It was in Bradford that the head-teacher Ray Honeyford was hounded out of his job for daring to preach assimilation to the Muslim community.
It was militant Islamism in Bradford, of course, that spawned Shehzad Tanweer, the suicide bomber of 7/7, who worshipped at Beeston’s Stratford Street Mosque nearby which a number of his fellow bombers also attended.
So segregated has Bradford become that there have even been calls from within the Muslim community for it to secede from Britain and become a separate emirate under Sharia Law. This segregation means that politics has now been dominated by the need to seek favours from a host of separate ethnic ‘communities’.
Across the country groups like Operation Black Vote and the Muslim Public Affairs Committee are busy encouraging such communities to vote along racial and religious lines. The result is non-monetary corruption on a grand scale, as the main political parties try to buy off these block votes with increasingly craven tactics.
In one extraordinary episode in Leicester, Labour MP Keith Vaz shipped up radical Islamist mayor Luftar Rahman from Tower Hamlets, a man so extreme he had been banned from the Labour party, in order to whip up Islamic support and get out the Muslim vote on polling day.
Labour tried these tactics again in Bradford West, selecting Imran Hussein as its candidate, and expecting the ‘community’ to vote en masse for him. They were mistaken because they were up against the most experienced politican in Britain at exploiting sectarianism: George Galloway
Although the fall of the Soviet Union was, in Galloway’s words, the saddest day of his life, he very quickly found a new cause by supporting Islamic extremism around the globe, particularly when it threatened British civilians and troops. While British soldiers were dying in Iraq, he toured the Middle East praising the insurgents for their courage and martyrdom.Galloway represents better than any other politician the modern unholy alliance of the far left and Islamofascism. The overriding principle of the far left, we must remember, is a visceral hatred for British heritage and interests. Extraordinarily a lifelong fan of the Soviet Union, during the Cold War Galloway spent his days supporting barbaric socialist regimes from those of Leonid Brezhnev to Fidel Castro. This is while the people of Eastern Europe suffered and starved. This is not related to Galloway having an Irish Republican mother.
When Ahmedinejad and the Ayatollah were providing arms for terrorists, murdering their own people in the streets, and promoting anti-semitism, Galloway became the paid mouthpiece for them on Iranian Press TV, praising their truth and wisdom. And while marches against Islamic terror took place on British streets, Galloway recently threatened, in front of a crowd of cheering Muslims, that anyone who ‘dared touch the beard of a Muslim man would have to fight his way through 10,000 dead bodies’.
In Bradford West, Galloway followed these tactics to perfection. He sent around letters addressing his ‘Muslim brothers and sisters’, claiming that he has never drunk alcohol, praising Allah and pointing out how he has fought for Islam around the globe. He promoted his sympathy for the Taliban and his contempt for British troops fighting in Afghanistan. And he used his rallies to promote himself as ‘a better Pakistani’ than his rivals could ever be.
Galloway’s victory, in Bradford as in Bethnal Green, proves that sectarianism is the reward for our failed multicultural policy. It should not be dismissed lightly, as a ‘one off’ such as the BBC are pretending, for it represents a worrying trend towards the exploitation of ethnic block votes.
Worse still it demonstrates the growing power of the far left-Islamist alliance, and its ability to win a democratic mandate on the back of ethnic segregation and anti-British hatred.
What worries me the most about Galloway is this, it will be harder for young British Muslims to emulate the successful assimilated ones, and instead go for the Islamist non-assimilated position that Galloway promotes. Worrying indeed.
