“I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”
“And fight with them until there is no more fitna (disorder, unbelief) and religion is all for Allah”
“Fight against them so that Allah will punish them by your hands and disgrace them and give you victory over them and heal the breasts of a believing people”
“Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth”
“O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them; and their abode is hell, and evil is the destination”
“O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness”
“Therefore listen not to the Unbelievers, but strive against them with the utmost strenuousness with it”
“Those who disbelieve follow falsehood, while those who believe follow the truth from their Lord… So, when you meet (fighting Jihad in Allah’s Cause), those who disbelieve smite at their necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them”
“Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. And those with him are hard (ruthless) against the disbelievers and merciful among themselves”
Gavin Boby, the infamous “Mosque Buster”, once told me that a person can open any page of the Koran, at random (he had tested it), and find condemnation of the unbeliever. Every single page. He’s right, test it for yourself.
The above verses are all taken from the Koran, the very book that devout Muslims believe to be the perfect, unchangeable, and unchallengeable word of God. So seriously is the Koran taken that criticising it carries the death penalty in many Muslim countries, and can have fatal consequences even here in the UK (ask any British ex-Muslim if they feel safe enough to be open about their apostasy).
And yet, in the coming days, as the UK ponders its latest jihadist terror attack, these verses will not be examined or considered or discussed in any way. They will be completely ignored as they always are.
Isn’t it possible, even probable, that a person who strongly and passionately believes that he ought to fight the unbeliever, will go out and fight the unbeliever?
Sudesh Amman thought he ought to fight the unbeliever (“smite at their necks”) and in Streatham on Sunday, he followed through. Amman is the latest example of jihad running amok in the street with knives. The last one was in London just 3 months ago, when Usman Khan murdered two people with a knife, and injured others. He too was convinced he ought to fight the unbeliever.
Usman Khan and Sudesh Amman have something else in common as well; they were both in jail on terror offences and released early. Reports today claim that Amman was freed only days ago, and that authorities had received warnings not to release him.
But they let him walk away freely anyway, because in the grand scheme of things, the safety of the British public is considered low on the list of priorities. “Sensitivity” and “dialogue” and “interfaith” are all very high on the list however, and the British people stand no chance up against all that..
Priti Patel has given a weak “package of measures” response. Not good enough. “Measures” are nothing when nobody implements them. I’ll also bet the “measures” pay no heed to the ideology behind these attacks, or in closing the borders to this ideology. That won’t be addressed by the Tories any more now than it has been for the past 10 years.
That’s why we need to change the political landscape. Labour is beyond redemption and the Tories need to be held to account.
All of the things that I warned about, that Tommy Robinson warned about, are playing out in front of us. This isn’t going to go away, it will get worse and worse. All over Europe. We’ll get so used to it that we’ll forget that it’s new, that it’s imported, and that we can drive it out if we choose to. But to do that, we have to vote for a party that will follow through.
We need to vote for a party that will do what needs to be done. We need to vote For Britain.
