The citizens of Britain must comply with Sharia or face procecution and possible prison. Paul Weston, Chairman of the British Freedom Party, speeks about this issue and the terrorizing of British citizens by their own government's compliance to Sharia.
Video: Paul Weston on Sharia in Britain and the Istanbul Process In this speech Paul Weston address the issue of the ongoing growth of the sharia state in Great Britain. Sharia law is operating in Britain but it is not calling itself sharia.
Today in Great Britain people are going to prison for not being sharia compliant. This will only get worse if Western governments bow, as expected, to the whims of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation when the EU hosts the ‘Istanbul Process’ later this year.
Thanks to British Freedom for transcript
Hello all. Thank you so much for coming down here tonight. I know some of you have come down [from] as far as Scotland, so it’s a great honour to have you here.
Now, a lot of people have been complaining that we talk too much in British Freedom about the Islamic factor. But we have to talk about it because it really is the most important thing that this country is going to be facing in the next 10, 15, 20 years. We have to face it, because if we don’t we simply won’t be here in 15, 20 years’ time. And this is not up for debate, this is an absolute fact.
There’s a guy called James Burnham who wrote a book back in the ’60s. He talked about warfare and the point of warfare, and it’s not about storming beaches, it’s not about blitzkrieging across Europe. The point of war is only one thing, and that is to get political control over territory. What we’re seeing in this country now is Sharia political control, incrementally taking over traditional British law, traditional British culture. And they’re doing it in a way that is very dangerous because it’s slow but it’s steady, and it’s growing all the time.
We’ve seen this recently with the case of Darren Conway, who’s been jailed for a year for putting up pictures of Mohammed in [the] windows of his house, and a few pictures of some EDL demonstrations. Now apparently, this offended local Muslim people. And we’re not allowed to offend them, because under Sharia law you cannot offend Muslims. So this guy has now gone to jail for 12 months for offending Muslims.
We saw the same thing with David Jones. I don’t know if you’re all aware of David Jones, he’s the guy that did the Fireman Sam books. I haven’t seen them myself, but apparently he’s quite high profile. Now he’s going through Gatwick Airport and a woman, a Muslim woman in a veil, goes through security in front of him and doesn’t remove her veil. He makes a tiny little remark: “Supposing I wore a veil and I came through here, what would you do then?” He was promptly taken to one side, questioned by the security services. They called the police, the policeman that came up said, “You’re not allowed to say these things because times have changed, we live in a different country now”.
Sharia law effectively means you are not allowed to criticise Islam. This guy didn’t even criticise Islam, he merely ‘offended’ a Muslim woman who was there at the time.
Now this creeping Sharia is something we should be really concerned about, because we’re not allowed to be offended. When Muslims burn poppies on Remembrance Sunday in this country, quite frankly I am extremely offended by this, but there’s nothing I can do about it, there’s nothing you can do about it. You can’t walk up to the local policeman and say, “I feel very offended by this”, because he won’t take any notice of you. Because you’re not the right race, religion, colour, whatever you want to call it, you are simply a second class citizen in your own country.
The Somali girl gang that beat up a white girl and her boyfriend. He wasn’t much of a boyfriend from what I could see, but maybe he’d had a few drinks, I think he probably had. But they kicked her round the floor and they said, “We’re going to kill the white bitch”. Now that, under all of our new laws that have come in in the last decade under race and religious hatred laws, that is immediately indictable. They should have been arrested, they should have been tried. Well they were arrested, but the judge who tried them excused them because as Muslims they were not used to drinking, and because they were drunk they were then allowed to walk free from the court.
This is coming down from on high, you know. We now have the Supreme Court in this country, which we didn’t used to have – this was a European edict again. The Supreme Court leader is a guy called Lord Nicholas Phillips, and Lord Nicholas Phillips actually came out two or three years ago and said, Sharia law is permissible in this country legally, as long as it doesn’t inflict serious physical harm. This is coming from the guy who is the top of our legal profession, the top of our court system in this country. This again is incremental, creeping Sharia, you know, it’s unbelievable really.
This is coming down [from] even higher up than the European Union, this comes from the United Nations. The United Nations has within it fifty-seven member states in an organisation called the Organisation of the Islamic Conference. They have Saudi money, they have Qatari money, they have Abu Dhabi money, and they are now the people who have the largest block vote in the United Nations, and the United Nations basically do as they’re told by them.
So when you have someone like Ban Ki-moon, who was the Secretary General came out over Fitna, the Geert Wilders video a few years ago, a couple of years ago, he declared Fitna to be a ‘hate video’. Why? Why is Fitna a hate video? All Wilders did in this video was put little clips together of various Muslims and imams saying, we want to take over the West, we want to do this, we want to [tame] women, we want to bring in the new caliphate. All he did was put these things together, but there was not a single instance of any person in those videos being tried, being prosecuted, not one. The only person prosecuted was Wilders, for simply putting into the public domain what these people were saying.
Now this again is basically Sharia – you are not allowed to criticise Islam. By putting it out in the public domain he was criticising Islam, therefore under the United Nations, which does not really, from my point of view, exist to serve the Muslim countries, but now they do. And it goes down lower again from there, down to the European Union.
Now the founding documents of the EU constitution make no mention of the fact that the pillars that built the European people, the culture, the countries into what they are today, one of those founding pillars was Christianity. I’m not a religious person, but you cannot argue that the Europe that we live in today is a Europe that was not formed by Christianity. You can’t argue against it, but in the EU constitution, no mention of it at all. What they do talk about of course is Islam. They talk about Islam a great deal. They want to be in the Euro-Mediterranean alliance, which will bring in Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia. They want to bring this into the European Union, then we all live in this great big happy, multicultural, multi-ethnic ‘family’. But we can’t criticise them. Again, Sharia law. We cannot criticise them.
There was a 2006 directive that came out from the European Union, which only mentioned one religion again, and that religion was Islam. Not Christianity, only Islam. Not Zoroastrianism, not Buddhism, only Islam. And they have an organisation called the Monitoring Centre Against Racism and Xenophobia. Now we know what that means: if you speak out against Islam, you will be prosecuted for inciting racial or religious hatred. But only against Islam, not against anything else. Then they bring in the European Arrest Warrants, so no matter where you actually say anything critical about Islam… I could say something in Germany next week, and a German could notify the German police. I will come back to the UK, but I can actually be extradited to Germany to stand trial for criticising Islam.
And while that is going on in this country we have people like Abu Qatada who can say what they like about taking over this country, but under the UN Human Rights Act he will not be extradited. I could be extradited for criticising, he cannot, and this again is incremental, creeping Sharia. I’m not allowed to say anything, they can say what they like. It is Sharia law.
This really was fast-tracked by the Labour government. When the Labour government came in they did two things immediately that essentially put the future of this country into jeopardy. They brought in the Human Rights Act, and they opened the doors to mass immigration. And when these millions of people came in from all around the Third World, obviously not all of them were bad people, but amongst them there were terrorists, there were paedophiles, there were criminals. And once they came in under these New Labour immigration laws, they also were not able to be thrown out again because of the European Court of Human Rights laws. So this made us a haven for people that wanted to basically overthrow our country. They were invited in, they can say what they like, and there’s absolutely nothing that we could do about it. Again, creeping Sharia.
The Labour government went even further than that. They started taking people into the Civil Service. Derek Pasquill – I don’t know if you’ve heard of Derek Pasquill, he was sacked from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office a few years ago, and the reason he was sacked is because he was essentially a whistle-blower. He came out, and he said the Foreign Office has been taken over by Islamic radicals and is now essentially a front for the Muslim Brotherhood. Now the Labour government sacked him, they didn’t take him to court because if he’d gone to court he would then have stood up there and said exactly what these people were doing in the Foreign Office. That would have been very embarrassing for the Labour government, so they simply sacked him, told him to bugger off, and that was that. Nothing else happened after that.
A well known journalist called Martin Bright wrote a 90-page thesis on this called When Progressives Treat with Reactionaries, which was essentially talking about liberals like Tony Blair who are being used and taken advantage of by reactionary people, i.e. liberals [who] get fleeced by extremists.
Now this should have been something that was picked up on by the mainstream media, by the BBC, all those – obviously not the BBC – but it should have been and it wasn’t. Again, this is something where a well known journalist is talking about a very serious situation where the Foreign Office has been taken over by Islamic radicals, and this is not deemed to be newsworthy. This is an astonishing situation in this country today; impossible to think of happening 15 , 20, 30 years ago, but now it happens routinely, all the time.
[The] Labour government also set up the Muslim Council of Britain. Now the Muslim Council of Britain is linked to the Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood want to bring in, they want to install a global caliphate. They’re serious about it, they’ve been working on this for decades, you know, 40, 50 years. Hassan al-Banna set this up in Egypt just after the Second World War. They’re serious about it, and we see them in the Middle East today taking over the so-called Arab Spring, that is rapidly descending into what I would term Koranic Winter. The media over here are still wittering on about how we’re going to bring democracy into the Middle East… They’re not going to bring democracy to the Middle East, they don’t want democracy in the Middle East, they’ve never had democracy in the Middle East. Sharia law does not take into account democracy. It’s insane, and it’s a typical example of liberal politicians living in a multicultural society, which we now are, hoping for the best. That’s what it is you know, hope, they simply hope that’s what’s going to happen.
They’ve let it go even further. Again, the Labour government. Polygamy. In Sharia law, well in Koranic law, they have an expression called jizya, and jizya is when the non-Muslim infidel has to pay tax to the Muslim overlord. We’re paying jizya right now, today, because we are taxpayers. Seventy-five percent of Muslim women in this country don’t work. Fifty percent of Muslim men don’t work, but they can have four wives. We can’t have four wives. As far as I know, bigamy is still seven years in jail, if you’re found guilty. But what they did, they said listen, if we marry our wives outside of Britain and then bring them in, that gets around that law. Now that’s fine, they can do that; but what we have done, or what the Labour government did, they actually financially rewarded it. They said, yes you can have four wives, you don’t have to go to work. We will pay for your welfare, for your houses, your education, for your health. We’ll do all of these things, whilst they go to the madrassas and the mosques, where they are indoctrinated into essentially overthrowing the liberal democracy that is providing them with the means for them to do this. We’re paying for it. This is jizya. This is something that is Koranically set down and we’re doing it. If you’re a taxpayer, right now, today, you are paying jizya to the Muslim overlords.
The Labour government also banned the blasphemy laws, they repealed the blasphemy laws, and they did this because the blasphemy laws particularly applied to only one religion, to Christianity. So therefore they had to go because they were discriminatory. But then they brought in the new laws, the 2006 Religious Hatred Law, and we all know why they brought that law in. They brought that law in because Nick Griffin, the BNP Nick Griffin, said in a speech that at some point in the near future Muslim terrorists are going to blow something up, to kill somebody, and they will come [from] within a twenty mile radius of where I’m making this speech. And a few weeks later we had the 2005 London transport bombings. So he was right, he was correct. But he was still taken to court over it, and his defence of course was: listen, Islam is not a race, it’s a religion. So the government brought in a new law about religious hatred, hoping to get him on that. And meanwhile, the blasphemy laws have been repealed because they only centred on Christianity. But the new law that came in, and the only reason it came in, was because you are not allowed to criticise Islam. Again, this is creeping, incremental Sharia.
Archbishop Rowan Williams – God bless him. Here he is, he’s actually come out, the main man in the English Church has come out and said, yes you know, Sharia law’s fine, Sharia law’s okay, we can’t possibly allow these people to come in and take away all of their rights.
So you put some of those things together and you start seeing the slippery slope that creeping Sharia is.
Then we have David Cameron. I don’t know if anybody here voted for David Cameron thinking he was going to make this country any better. I know some people did, but they’re very disappointed now. But the Muslim Council of Britain is still in existence, is still doing exactly what it was doing in the old days, it still has this link to the Muslim Brotherhood. Exactly the same thing.
And Unite Against Fascism. I’m hoping we haven’t let any of them in here tonight – obviously we did a good job earlier on. But Cameron is a founding signatory to Unite Against Fascism. Unite Against Fascism recently had a new Vice Chair appointed, a chap called Mr Azad Ali, and Azad Ali is actually linked to Al Qaeda. He’s one of these guys after 9/11 that said what the BBC said: thank God America got a bloody nose. Azad Ali was out there on the forefront whipping this sort of stuff up, and he is now sitting on an organisation which is essentially there to stop people like me and people like you attending venues like this. And Cameron is on their side. Why did anybody think Cameron was going to actually do anything about the Islamic [question] in this country? I have no idea.
He also wants Turkey to join the European Union. There are eighty million people in Turkey. Eighty million. They will then have the biggest block vote after Germany in the European Union. And of course they’re very, very poor, the gates will be open. How many Turks will come and live here? God only knows, but they thought 17,000 Poles would come here, so what have we got now? Two million, three million, five million, I don’t know. But we are going to get… if the Conservatives get their way, they will let Turkey join the European Union, and we will have millions of Turks coming into this country, continuing what they are still doing. Don’t forget, the Turkish Prime Minister said there is no such thing as moderate Islam and integration is a sin. And Cameron wants these people from this country to come here. The Conservatives are a joke.
Andrew Gilligan in the Daily Telegraph was writing recently about this. Cameron is still funding organisations like Hizb ut Tahrir – Tahrir, if I can pronounce it correctly – which again is linked to the Muslim Brotherhood. They again want to inflict the global caliphate upon our democracy here, and they are being given hundreds of thousands of pounds from the taxpayer. I go back to this jizya question again: we are paying for these people to overthrow us, and our government apparently is complicit in this. It’s astonishing, and they won’t do anything about it.
The last election, Cameron’s main sort of claim [for defence] on this is that he can’t do what he wants to do because his hands are tied by the Liberal Democrats. But the only reason he does not have a majority rule in this country now is because there was fraudulent Muslim voting in the last election. Baroness Warsi came out and said the only reason the Conservatives lost the last election was basically from three seats and those three seats were Muslim seats. They had a huge amount of election – postal, electoral – vote fraud going on, so Cameron’s government only exists today in its weakened state because of Muslim voting fraud in this country. That again should have been a huge story. Warsi came out and said this. She was invited onto Question Time the night after she said it, but apparently she had a cold, so she couldn’t go. Now obviously that was something from on high: don’t go out there, don’t talk about it, don’t mention it because this is not something we want the general population in this country to know. So the government today is basically… as far as I’m concerned, the government today is complicit in allowing creeping Sharia law to go further in this country.
And all the institutions are the same. Take the police force. Before the London bombings, we had Commissioner Ian Blair, who was very, very political, and he came out and said there is nothing wrong with being an Islamic fundamentalist. There’s nothing wrong with being an Islamic fundamentalist. And he knew when he said that, that there was all this stuff going on all around the world where Islamic fundamentalists were blowing people up, were burning down Christian churches in Egypt. He still came out and said this. And it got worse than that. The day after the London bombings Brian Paddick the Assistant Commissioner came out and said Islam and terrorism are two words that don’t go together. This was the day after fifty-two people were murdered in our city and seven hundred were maimed. And this guy goes out the day after and says something like this.
But the police have been taken over, you know. They now study the Koran. They study Sharia law, and they do this because they want to interact better in the interests of ‘community cohesion’. Our police force, that should be out there protecting us, are essentially doing what Islam wants them to do.
And they really are you know: they have to notify mosques before they go in there. The Finsbury Park Mosque had an arms stash in it – this was Abu Hamsa, back in his day – they had arms, they had weapons in there. And when the police raided it, they were told they could not raid it immediately, they had to notify the mosque before they did so. When they went in they had to take their shoes and socks off, and if they had police dogs able to sniff out explosives, the dogs are unclean according to Islam, so the dogs had to have these special little rubber bootees on their feet before they were allowed into Finsbury Park Mosque to look to see if it had explosives in there to blow us up. This is insane!
And it’s not just down here. Up in Scotland, West Lothian – I have to read this to you, because I can’t remember the entire quote – but there’s an Inspector Tom Galbraith of the West Lothian police force, he said, “If I have a young Asian man who’s been subjected to” – never a Muslim, always an Asian – “If I have a young Muslim man who’s been subjected to a hate crime, I would rather put more resources into that than if it had happened to a white male, because the white male is far less likely to end up becoming radicalised”. So what the police are saying here essentially is that, if you promise violence you will be rewarded by the police. They will go out of their way to make sure that you are treated preferentially than poor little white people like us, who are the victims in all of this, but we’re not allowed to say anything unless we back it up with violence. But we don’t back it up with violence, so therefore, again, we become second class people in our own country. So violence works.
We saw what happened to the police after the Channel 4 Undercover Mosque. Imams on there filmed undercover, filmed there saying, throw homosexuals off cliffs, take over number 10 Downing Street, overthrow the infidel. That’s sedition. It’s also homophobic, possibly racist because we’re all, some of us anyway in this country, are still white. But what happened after that? No imams were prosecuted. Not a single one. Not one. The only people that were prosecuted were the actual producers for Channel 4 themselves, by West Midlands police force. They were the most politically correct, anti-English, pro-Islamic police force in this country today. Not coincidentally, there is a large Muslim population in the West Midlands. So it seems that whenever you have a large Muslim population, everybody from our establishment gets on their knees in front of [them]. It’s again, Sharia law. We’re not allowed to do things, they are.
Accept that you are all in this room second-class citizens in your own country because of what is going on today with Islam. Which is why I talk about Islam more than perhaps I should.
It goes down to education. Schools today – not all of them, but some schools today – no longer teach the Holocaust. Because what the Muslims kids are learning in the local madrassas and the mosques is the Holocaust never happened. So in order not to upset their sensibilities and in order to ensure what the police call ‘community cohesion’, they’re not taught about it. Nor are they taught about the crusades, because the crusades again run counter to what these little Muslim kids are taught in the mosques and in the madrassas.
The worst thing – I don’t know if anyone here actually knows this, it came up a few years ago – under the school curriculum, the National Curriculum, if you’re a non-Muslim teacher and you’re teaching religious knowledge lessons and you have to handle the Koran, you are not allowed to put your bare hands on the Koran as an infidel. You have to wear rubber gloves before you take the Koran out and show it to the children. Rubber gloves, because you are a filthy, pig-like infidel. In England, today! Can you believe it? And it’s part of the National Curriculum!
One thing that these children were taught to recite as part of this was, “There is no God but Allah, and Mohammed is his messenger”. Now this is called the Shahada. If you want to convert to Islam, the only words you need to say are those words from the Shahada. And that is the only expression from the Koran that English children are taught to recite and to write down. Why? Why? What is going on in our schools?
It’s money, it comes down to money again. A huge amount of money is being poured in from Saudi Arabia, from Qatar, and this stuff is permeating [them].
The BBC have a thing called Bitesize Revision Programme, not on the television but on their website. And they have a thing – I actually got it closed down about four years ago – and it was the most disgusting, racist, vicious, bigoted stuff I’ve ever seen in my life. It talked about Christianity and Islam, and it guided these small, unformed children’s minds into only one direction, which was: Christianity is imperialistic, it’s oppressive, it’s racist and it’s sexist; Islam is a female-friendly, multicultural – ‘Religion of Peace’, exactly – but the way that they steered these children’s minds into this was like something from communist Russia. It was subtle yet incredibly efficient in what it was doing. And what it was doing was, again, enforcing Sharia onto our children, in our country, at an age where they don’t know any better. This was utterly immoral.
We did a little story on this and we got people to phone up the BBC and to write them letters, and they eventually changed it. You have to work hard to get the BBC to change anything, but that was one little victory that we had. And they are typical of the media.
The NUJ guidelines, National Union of Journalists guidelines, again are influenced not by the best interests of us but the best interests of people who come to this country who don’t particularly wish us well. NUJ guidelines actually say that if you are a ‘right-wing’ organisation, and of course we are – I think I’m a central political person myself, but according to the BBC I’m obviously far-right – but they go out of their way in the NUJ to say that far-right organisations should not be given the ‘oxygen of publicity’. In other words, whatever they do, ignore them. Unless of course you want to do them damage, in which case go out of your way to do them damage. And this is why we see so little of what we should be seeing.
If you want to know what’s going on in this country with [Islam], what’s happening to us, you cannot read the media, you cannot watch the TV, you have to look at the websites because the media have essentially been taken over. I don’t know if they’re being paid off, I have no idea why they’re like they are, but they are like they are and they will clamp down completely on what we would like to say.
The BBC again, for example, has the Balen Report. Now they spent millions of pounds hushing up the Balen Report. This was the report they commissioned themselves and it was based around, are they anti-Israel, pro-Palestinian? This guy – I assume he was called Balen – made the report. It clearly came down on the fact that in actual fact yes, the BBC was biased. So rather than put this out in the public domain they just shut it down. And then when they were told to release it they went to court to stop it coming out.
After 9/11 we had Question Time, and the BBC filled the entire audience – not the entire audience, I’m exaggerating – they filled the audience with an over-representation of Muslims who eventually made the poor American Ambassador, they reduced him to tears with their sheer hatred of the West and hatred of America. And this was just a few days after 9/11. The BBC wanted this to happen, they wanted the world to see that America was the bully and Islam was the victim and America got what was coming to it. The BBC, the British Broadcasting Corporation!
Mark Thompson of course is the Director General. He’s come out and said that they will treat Islam more sensitively than any other religion. Now if you watch people like Stephen Fry sneering about Christianity, you know that they’re not too concerned about religion per se, they are only concerned about Islam. And when he says, we’re going to treat it more sensitively – he said this about a year ago – but he’s now come out and said, well the reason we do this is because if we don’t they might come round and blow us up.
So again, here we are. They are getting their way because the institutions of this country, even if they don’t want to go this way, are going on this sort of creeping Sharia because they’re frightened of them. In a terror and a civilised approach. These well-spoken Muslims, they get onto Question Time and Newsnight, and they all sound terribly nice. But what they’re doing, they’re working in conjunction with terrorism, because they know that terrorism by itself can’t work. Being civilised, again, by itself can’t work. You put the two together and you are almost unbeatable, and at the moment they are, they are unbeatable. What they’re doing right now is they’re winning.
I go back to this thing about warfare and the fact that it’s essentially political control over territory. Now if you lose your media, your police force, your government and your education to people who are anti you, your culture, your religion, your country, those are battles and they’re all battles that we’re losing. And we’re losing the battles because we refuse to accept that Islam is at war with us. Islam knows it’s at war with us and that’s why we’re losing the battles.
Until we wake up and we say, we understand you’re at war with us and we are going to mount a defence… And now we are mounting a defence, this room tonight is the beginning of mounting a defence. We have to do it, we have to do it because there’s three million Muslims in this country and they are effectively controlling our political sphere. In ten years’ time there will be six million, in twenty years’ time twelve million, in thirty years’ time twenty-four million. We have to win.
This is a small start. Thank you all so much for coming here tonight, and let’s start winning some battles!
