Straight Talk From Great Britain
Only a matter of time before Leo McKinstry has death threats? Of course

Someone in Britain finally has the guts to stand up and tell the truth. Here's his article, in it's entirety, from The Daily Express (of London). Believe me, it's well worth the read;
By Leo McKinstry

ONE of the most moving but little-known episodes of the Second World War was Operation Exodus when, in the early summer of 1945, the RAF flew home tens of thousands of liberated British prisoners of war from northern Europe.
Many had been incarcerated for five years in German PoW camps until they were freed by the Allies. As the planes flew over the English Channel and the white cliffs of Dover came into view, the spirits of this bedraggled but heroic army soared. Some cheered, others whistled. A few brave souls sat still with tears rolling down their cheeks.

They were almost back in their native land where they would be treated with the warmth and respect that their sacrifices had earned.

But in fragmented modern Britain, returning heroes are guaranteed no such welcome. This is a land where patriotism has been eroded and the very concept of Britishness is vanishing. As a result of mass immigration and the ideology of multiculturalism, those who risk their lives on our behalf are no longer honoured in the way that they deserve.

That was made all too graphically clear this week in the disgraceful scenes that marred the homecoming parade from Iraq of the 2nd Battalion, the Royal Anglian Regiment, in Luton in Bedfordshire.

As the courageous soldiers marched through the streets they were abused by a group of Muslim extremists who called them “baby killers”, “torturers” and “brutal murderers.”

Such vile conduct would have been unthinkable in Britain only 10 years ago. In the past, even those who vehemently opposed British involvement in certain wars never dreamt of hurling abuse at the military. But all that has changed with the growth of militant Islam in our midst.

Such vile conduct would have been unthinkable in Britain only 10 years ago.

There are now large numbers of Muslim zealots living here who have no allegiance whatsoever to this country. Their loyalty is to the brutal, alien ideology of Islamism that seeks to conquer the West.

PROTEST: Abu Omar, Abu Shadeed, Abu Abdullah and Hussein Ahmed

It is often asked, quite reasonably, that if these jihadists hate Britain so much why don’t they go and live in a theocratic regime like Iran, which is more in tune with their bullying, misogynistic, totalitarian intolerance. But this misses the point.

These militants are seeking the Islamification of Europe. They will not be content until the wail of the mosque sounds

The tragedy is that the civic authorities, instead of robustly defending Britain, continually surrender. Gordon Brown condemned protesters in Luton but his Government is largely to blame for this incident.

It is the Labour Government which destroyed our borders, allowing a vast floodtide of immigrants from Muslim countries to settle here. And it is Labour which has aggressively imposed the creed of multiculturalism, which promotes the belief that immigrants should cling to their own cultures.

Labour’s dogma has now infected all our public services but none more spectacularly than the police, which has been turned into the strong arm of the multicultural state. Police chiefs now seem to regard themselves as the agents of social change.

That is why in Luton this week they ended up in the grotesque position of protecting the Muslim abusers. Tellingly, the only arrests made were of two people loudly expressing support for the Royal Anglian Regiment.

The hypocrisy of the police is sickening. Only last month they were oppressively heavy-handed in dealing with pro-Tibetan protesters outside the Chinese embassy during a visit to London by the Chinese premier Wen Jiabao.

One young woman was dragged away for holding up an anti-Beijing placard, a far more serious crime in the twisted mindset of the modern police, than telling British soldiers to “go to hell”.

Similarly, the Kent police over-reacted against a protest last summer on the proposed site of a new power station, when 1,500 officers descended on a peaceful group of campaigners pretending that they were a threat to public safety.

To justify this, the police claimed they had seized “weapons” from the eco-protesters’ camp, though these dangerous objects turned out to be cushions, board games, a bike lock and a carpet. Yet when it comes to Muslim extremists the police are utterly craven.

Other anti-war protesters are quickly arrested, such as Maya Evans, who was apprehended in 2005 while reading a list of the British troops killed in Iraq at the Cenotaph in London.

Nothing, though, happens to Islamic protesters indulging in far more aggressive conduct. The instinct is to appease all the time. Bedfordshire police, under the politically correct leadership of Chief Constable Gillian Parker, is a classic example of this pattern.

Her force has, for instance, issued an 18-point set of guidelines to officers on the need to show the most exquisite sensitivity towards Muslim suspects. Officers are therefore advised to remove their shoes before entering a Muslim house, ban sniffer dogs from the premises and avoid disrupting prayers.

This is justified, she says, on the basis that “the Muslim community feels victimised”. In reality, it is militant Islam that is holding Britain to ransom. We are told, it was just “a few hotheads” in Luton.

But it is the extremists who are setting the agenda. We need a Government that stands up to them rather than continually waving the white flag.

Why do these boys always look so mad and ugly? I guess it's all that inner peace they get from worshiping their filth pedophile "prophet."

Remember, in the Apocalypse, we win.

How? The Conservatives are just as bad. Our choice is gone; our freedom has gone; taken by stealth and aided by our own apathy. God help us now.

Gramps is correct.
