Creeping sharia continues to creep right under our very noses. The Islamification of the West continues apace, but we seem to be sleeping through it all. And those who warn of this are blasted by deceived elites and a duped mainstream media. We had an excellent example of this just today.
South Australian Senator Cory Bernardi has just released a new book called The Conservative Revolution and already it is being blasted by the secular left and our MSM. He covers plenty of issues here, including the war on the family, the war on life, and the war on our freedoms.
Part of the war on the West and its freedoms is coming from Islam. Yet for daring to even raise this issue the lefties are going ballistic. Hostile articles in the media are painting the Senator as Attila the Hun, and political lefties are tearing into his comments on Islam.
For example, while Bernardi said this, “I believe that by stripping God and religious principles from our culture (and our politics) we have become a nation which does not know which port it is sailing to,” Labor’s Anthony Albanese said this in response: “He says he’s pro-religion but he’s against any religion that isn’t the same as his.”
That was a dumb, albeit typical, Labor response. The truth is, not all religions are the same. One religion says ‘love your enemies’ while the other one says ‘slay your enemies wherever you find them’. Thus Bernardi is 100 per cent right to champion a real religion of peace (Christianity) which made the free West possible, while warning about a tyrannical political ideology (Islam).
So with all this delusion and confusion about the real nature of Islam, the West is sleeping while case after case of creeping sharia takes place. Let me highlight just a few recent examples of this from around the globe. Let’s begin in the UK with this story:
“Furious M&S customers threatened to boycott the store last night for allowing Muslim checkout staff to refuse to serve customers who want to pay for alcohol or pork. Managers at a London store told the workers they could ask any shoppers trying to buy the items to wait until a different till was available, it emerged yesterday.
“One shopper said: ‘I had one bottle of champagne, and the lady, who was wearing a headscarf, was very apologetic but said she could not serve me. She told me to wait until another member of staff was available. I was taken aback. I’ve never come across that before.’
“Last night, Marks & Spencer said the advice had been given in error and was not consistent with its national policy. But customers bombarded the store’s Facebook page to complain, while another site was set up calling on shoppers to boycott M&S. More than 1,500 others put posts on MailOnline.
“Customer Matt Syson wrote: ‘If you have Christian workers who wish to refuse the sale of ladies’ garments to male homosexuals or men’s trousers to lesbians, I do hope you will stand by those workers’ religious or personal beliefs. My family and I shall no longer purchase any goods from your company due to the implementation of this “one rule system” that creates further division and hatred within our communities.’
“Angela Phillips posted: ‘If M&S go ahead with this they are going to lose so many loyal customers. ‘If they do not want to serve people with pork or alcohol they shouldn’t work in the food hall. Simple!’ Heather Playdon posted on the store’s Facebook page: ‘I shan’t be shopping in M&S any more. The quintessentially British retailer bows down to Muslim beliefs. And in turn alienates the majority of Christian and non-religious customers. Outrageous’.”
My next example comes from Italy: “A nationalist party has launched a complaint at the decision of some schools and kindergartens in the city of Turin to shut down all Christmas Nativity celebrations, or remove all mention of Christianity from them, out of fear of ‘offending the sensibilities’ of the schools’ growing Muslim population.
“Roberto Carbonero, the director of Lega Nord (the Northern League), said that if confirmed, the decision by some school principals ‘would be a very serious matter which is unprecedented’. ‘Such a decision is completely unacceptable,’ he said, adding that the city, not the individual schools, should have competence to make such decisions. ‘The “city of inclusion” fantasized about on the Left cannot become a “city of discrimination for Catholics”,’ Carbonero said.
“‘It is not acceptable that, in favor of uncontrolled immigration…our citizens, our children, must give up their own traditions and their own culture, he said. I’m not staying with the school [of thought] that we should be ashamed of the Catholic base of our society and its history.”
My third case comes from Ontario, Canada: “Mother Teresa Catholic secondary school is turning a second-floor office into an Islamic prayer room – the first high school in the city, private or public, to do so. Carpet will soon cover the tile flooring, speakers will be installed and prayer mats purchased to provide the school’s Muslim students, estimated at around two dozen, with a quiet and private place to pray.
“The idea has been in the works since the end of the last school year after a group of Muslim students lobbied administration to create the space. ‘They’re members of our school community. We want to ensure that all our students feel welcome, that they feel that they belong,’ said Principal Ana Paula Fernandes.”
A few quick comments here. Does anyone imagine that an Islamic school in say, Iran, would allow a Christian prayer room in it? And why is this Catholic school not standing up for its own beliefs? Will they allow Satanist or atheist students to have their own rooms as well to do their thing?
No wonder we are losing. My last example goes back to Britain, where more moonbattery is allowing Islam to take further hold of that once great nation: “Husbands living in a ‘harem’ with multiple wives have been cleared to claim state benefits for all their different partners.
“A Muslim man with four spouses – which is permitted under Islamic law – could receive £10,000 a year in income support alone. He could also be entitled to more generous housing and council tax benefit, to reflect the fact his household needs a bigger property.
“Ministers have decided that, even though bigamy is a crime in Britain, polygamous marriages can be recognised formally by the state – provided they took place overseas, in countries where they are legal. The outcome will chiefly benefit Muslim men with more than one wife. Ministers estimate that up to a thousand polygamous partnerships exist in Britain, although they admit there is no exact record. Potentially, the benefits bill for income support could reach £10m.”
So here we have more examples of how the West is sleeping through its own destruction – and in some cases, is actively helping in the process. Everywhere we find stealth jihad and creeping sharia at work, and everywhere we find the West asleep, apathetic or complicit in its own suicide.
The West cannot last long in such circumstances. Unless it snaps out of its slumber real quick, there won’t be much of the West left to defend anymore.
