Soeren Kern writes a lot of good articles on what’s happening with Islam and Europe. He lives in Spain and he writes for the Gatestone Institute. A lot of what we are going to talk about is from one of his articles, The Islamization of Britain. It is packed with information. The data published by the British government has done studies on this. They have published these studies and they show that Islam is set to become the dominant religion in Britain within the next generation. The average British family only has 1.4 children, meanwhile the average Muslim family in Britain has 4.7 children. Just do the math and you can see how this will happen. In France the Muslim birthrate is 7.4 children per family. It’s just a matter of time before we see a completely different face on Britain in particular, and Europe in general.
These self-proclaimed vigilantes, who call themselves Muslim Patrols, are seen abusing non-Muslim pedestrians and repeatedly shouting, “This is a Muslim area.” They are threatening those who are not Muslim. We have had a well known lawyer from the UK on our radio program who has represented a number of issues that are going on in this area.
The Muslims were successful in getting a Church closed in one of these Muslim communities. Here’s how they did it: they complained to the local council of noise pollution coming from the Church. Noise pollution. What? What is that? Were they ringing Church bells at 5:00 in the morning? No! They were singing hymns at 11:00 in the morning on Sunday. The city council came and said, “Hey, you have to cease and desist.” The Church said, “Phooey on you, we have been here a hundred years.” So they turned up the volume even louder. Good for them.
They went to Court, not a Sharia Court, but a British Court. There were three Judges on the panel, two of them were Muslim, and so, they closed the Church.
The Muslims have not only been working their ways into the Courtrooms and the panels of Judges, but also into the police, politics, the schools, the armies, and all kinds of other places.
I have two missionary friends who were kicked out of a place in Birmingham where they went to hand out gospel tracks. A British policeman came to them and said, “This is now a Muslim controlled zone, you have to leave here, you can’t do that here anymore.” They said, “Listen, we have the freedom to do this here, even in Britain we have the freedom to do this.” The policeman still pushed them out. They sued the policeman and the police force and won because the policeman was in the wrong. If we let them push us around, they will push us around.
On American TV, Fox News, you will see Hannity debate with Anjem Choudary. He is a convert to Islam. His name is Trevor Brooks.
He has started a number of organizations that the government keeps closing and deeming as illegal. He’s also led a campaign recently of the Islamic Emirates Project. Its purpose is to turn twelve British cities into what he calls, Londonistan, an independent Islamic State. They’re trying to enforce Islam more and more into that country. People look at this as a joke but they’re gaining ground.
I have said time and time again, “Pay attention to these guys, because they’re …” At least Anjem Choudary is being honest, he will tell you exactly what their goal is. I just want to reiterate that the goal is to take an individual city and turn into an Islamic city, governed by Sharia. If they have enough of those cities they will have an Islamic State.” This is what we have to understand.
It is happening also in America. We have major US cities that are being turned into Islamic enclaves where they will soon demand the opening of Sharia Courts. People think it won’t happen in America but we already have Sharia Courts in America. We will look at this a little later.
What we have had in Britain is a parallel legal system. Britain has allowed Muslims to have their own law courts, and said, “As a nation, we are a sovereign nation. Our laws apply to everyone here except Muslims. They don’t have to live by our laws when it comes to civil cases, family law, divorce, remarriage, inheritance, etc. They don’t have to abide by our laws. The can have your own laws.”
That’s a very dangerous footing for any country. The reason they did it is because of the number of Muslims and the influence that they have in Britain. The truth is, their numbers are growing, but they don’t have anywhere near a majority. They are still in the small minority, but because they make a lot of noise, they feel big.
Britain said, “Okay, you can have your law courts.” Originally, it was 7, but within 12 months, there were 85 of these Sharia courts operating, and they’re still operating today. The BBC has done secret filming in the Sharia courtrooms, and they are finding that they operate in mosques and houses that are set up for this purpose. They found that they routinely issue rulings on domestic and marital issues according to Islamic law, but their rullings are against the very British laws. We knew it would be this way because that is what Islam is… It’s diametrically opposed to British law.
There are two points I want to make here. One is that going back to what I said earlier in the show, it’s not just their population base, but it’s the enclaves. They put the yellow stickers on saying, “Hey, these are Sharia controlled zones. Don’t come here.” We are seeing the same thing in America as Muslims build enclaves here.
Up until last year Britain had a parallel legal system. They allowed Muslims to do their own thing. Because of the abuses, this year new guidelines came out from the Law Society in Great Britain. Here’s what they said under this guidance, the solicitors are now able to write Islamic wills that have power to exclude non-Muslims, non-believers, deny women equal rights, deny inheritance. Now this is in British law, so no longer are they saying, “You have your parallel system, we have ours, but ours trumps you.” Now they’re recognizing, according to the Law Society of Great Britain, that we are going to allow Islamic law to come into the British law and that the Islamic law trumps the British law.
For years I have been saying to people in America, Islamic law, Sharia law, will only stay parallel for so long because eventually, their commandment from Allah is that Islam’s law must be superior. The British legal system just said to the Muslims, “You’re right. It is superior. We are going to allow you to bring it in.”
I want to make my second point. Guess what has been happening in America? As we said earlier, what they practice in Europe they’re perfecting in America. They haven’t had a need in America to set up separate Sharia courts as of yet because we already have cases in American courts where American judges have allowed Islamic law to come into rulings and be taken into account in American rulings. This then, according to our warped current legal system, becomes case law, and now it becomes part of our American legal system.
It has taken them years in Great Britain to do this, because they had to be parallel for a long time. Now, according to these articles and the British Law Society, it has become British law. What’s taken them years to do in Great Britain, they have already gotten to in America where they are seeing American judges apply Islamic law.
This is why we have had to work to protect the constitutions of different states from the implementation of Sharia law or any foreign law. That’s why the American laws for American courts is so important.
I didn’t see this coming. I have seen where this is going, and this is a new twist to me. I’ve got to say my heart is so grieved. I lived there for so long, and I still love Britain in many ways. My heart breaks for Europe. I feel that they are further down the road and that they soon will be lost to Islam. Quite honestly, I just don’t think that there is much hope for them. They have given up so much ground. I feel there’s still hope here in America.
A lot of Canadians send support to our ministry and say, “Keep warning America because if they drop the ball …” In Canada, their hands are tied because they have laws that prevent them from speaking against these things so they’re very scared. They are so glad that I’m coming across the border on radio and delivering that message because it needs to be said, but I can’t go to Canada and actually say these things.
I get many emails and letters from Canadians saying, “Warn America because if America drops the ball, who will stand for liberty and freedom?” America is the place of the last stand against Islam.
Sharia is coming into our court system through the use of case law and the principle of precedence. We had better wake up. When I lived in England I heard of these things but I was naive. I didn’t get it. There are so many people in America that are naive and don’t get it.
I was just speaking at a church, a pretty large church in a community and some of the members came to me and said, “Thank you for coming, but I’ve got to tell you, we have got some people here that knew you were coming but didn’t come today because they didn’t want to hear what you had to say about it because they think that you’re just going to be, you know, tearing down Muslims and all that kind of stuff.” They said, “You’ve come and you’ve not torn down Muslims. You’ve lifted them up. You’ve given us the hope that these people can be saved and that they need to be saved. I was afraid of these people, and now I’ve got a better grasp on it.” There are so many people who just don’t want to hear. They want to stick their head in the sand, and they want to be naive.
Europe is like that wall in Berlin. If it falls, if it crumbles, and I’m telling you if the status quo does not change, if the things continue in the direction that they are going, Europe is likely to fall.
I have a picture in one of the presentations that I give of my wife and her family. When she was a teenager they moved to a new community down in the south of France. They were ministering in Carcassonne. Carcassonne has the oldest fortified city of Europe that is still standing with its fortified walls. It is a beautiful sight to see.
I had been around castles. I had been around city walls for many years. If you have seen one, you have seen hundreds, and hundreds, and hundreds of them. Trust me. They’re all over the place in Britain. Of course, most of them are in ruins. I went down and saw where she used to live. It’s just beautiful. The ramparts are still standing. I didn’t really know what a rampart was, honestly, even though I’ve been around castles, and we sing of ramparts.
Ramparts are that first line of defense. When the enemy comes, that’s where you take your defensive stand. If they prevail against you, you go back to the city walls and you fight there. If they prevail against you there, then you go to the castle and you fight there. If they prevailed against you there, then you go to the keep, the innermost part of the castle. If the enemy prevails against you there… you’re dead, there is nowhere else to go.
Europe is in the castle. They have given up so much ground, and I don’t think they’re going to survive because they’re not understanding their enemy. We have an opportunity to still take a stand at the ramparts and defeat Islam, but we have got to learn who our enemy is.
Your support of this ministry is vital so we can get this information out. Let me give a quick plug for the Army of Ten. If we had an army of hundreds and hundreds of people supporting us at ten dollars a month, just ten dollars a month, it would dramatically change what we are able to do. We are on one major network now. We are on a couple of other networks that aren’t big as American Family Radio. Our total budget for airtime fees is up to $80,000 a year. That’s a lot of money, and I’m amazed that we are able to do that from the support that we have. We have a couple of very generous donors, who are getting up in years, I don’t know how long we are going to have them with us, so we need to build the base. Would you consider being part of the Army of Ten and help us to keep this message on this great network, and also to help us to expand to get to the next level, to get on other great networks so we can get this information out to more people?
