A Contemporary Dunkirk?: British Immigration To The USA

*NOTE: Over 825,000 Americans are British born making Britain America's 9th largest source of immigrants. Americans of British Ancestry make up the second largest ethnic group in America, the largest being German.

Time To Emigrate?

Former Tory Mp George Walden has written a controversial new book concluding that life in London and the rest of the country is such that is better to emigrate. We want to hear your views -is it a fair assessment or too gloomy

"Why write a book called “Time to Emigrate?” Because I’ve got three grown-up children, the book is about the future, and the future of life in London looks increasingly risky and pessimistic for millions of middle class families from teachers, nurses to taxi drivers that the only secure option is to emigrate. This is a book for my children and their children

Compared to young families today my generation had it easy. I began life on an estate in Dagenham, a place you wouldn’t recognise now. There were no racial tensions in my day. I’m not opposed to some immigration, and know how we can all benefit. But what we’ve done is a massive gamble. Trevor Phillips says that if we don’t talk about the problems of integration honestly the tensions out there will increase. He’s right - but if you do, someone will call you a racist. For the sake of a bit of honesty I'm ready to risk it.

Young couples used to be able to buy houses when they married. Now they can’t - and the population is due to grow by seven million, mostly in London and the South East. That’s the equivalent of seven more Birminghams. On top of that the police tell us cheerfully that terrorism will be with us for decades. As for crime - look around you.

I was lucky enough to go to good schools and to Cambridge. Now state education has become a tougher proposition, in every sense, and social mobility in Britain has actually gone backwards. That’s why expensively educated politicians like Tony Blair talked about Cool Britannia, and David Cameron flashes his iPod at you: to pretend we’re all the same. Remember that only six members of Cameron’s 35 strong shadow cabinet went to state schools. As for the NHS, everyone knows it's hopelessly overcrowded and can never work.

Doesn't sound like the ideal country to bring up your children in, does it?

Maybe I’m wrong, and everything will turn out fine? But who’s to say? Whether it’s immigration, terrorism or the housing market, it’s all one huge bet. And that’s the problem. It’s OK for the well-to-do, who can shield themselves from the risks, but the majority can’t. Is it too risky to stay in Britain? To judge by the emigration figures it’s a question a lot more people are asking."

I love London and it has been my home for 20 years, its the most fascinating city in the world and has a lot to offer in terms of arts, entertainment and careers. But London offers no quality of life, its far too expensive (even for high earners), public transport is always at breaking point and now also at risk from terrorists. Its time to pack up!

Monika Jakubiec

I live in Barking and have seen a dramatic change for the worse in the last year! Crime is a major problem along with the general deterioration of the area. I have two children and feel that I have no alternative but to relocate. I just have to look around to question what future do my children realistically have in a borough like Barking and Dagenham?


I will have to agree with the authors views thinking of the quality of life here. What I love about London or the UK is the high level of social education that in a way helps to overcome the difficulties of the every day life. Patience and tolerance is a virtue but not in all cases. I feel lucky because I can afford a mortgage for a bedroom in a flat but most of my friends are unable even to consider such an option. I am not a father yet but I know for sure that there is no chance for my kids to play outside on the street and also that there is a great probability that they use drugs or even carry a knife. I need to try my best so I can afford to have them growing up in a “better” area! It is a hard decision but it looks like I will have to consider about emigrating.

Thomas Economou

Yes it is time to pack up and leave, not just london but the country as a whole. It is no longer the country I loved and served on active service for, I do not recognise it in any way, the people, the greed of government, the oppression of the e.u., the intrusion of politics into every facet of life, the crime, the adoration of the trivial, the lack of patriotism, political correctness, the lack of quality in everything from goods to people and especially politicians and prime ministers, in fact every damn thing. How I wish I were young and fit enough to start afresh far away from this ruined land.

Terence Jones

At last someone speaks the truth. George Walden is correct about the situation in London/Britain. Sadly it is not the great place that we all loved. Too many people in a small country, the high cost of living, the depression of the NHS, of which I worked in for over 20 years. I have been lucky enough to have been given the opportunity of emigrating to the USA to try and give my family a better quality of life and a better future for our children.

Sharon Watts

Mr Walden is viewing the past with rose tinted specticals. Yes many things need to be better, but then that has always been the case. I have lived in West London now for 26 years and as far as I am concerned on balance things are much better than when I arrived.

Better transport is balanced by more graffiti. More affluence is balanced by more litter.

As for the NHS I have seen improvements in Hillingdon over the last 6 years. My parents live in the North and are now in their 80's, the treatment they are getting is excellent.

Most of our problems are there because most people want to have first class treatment but are not willing to pay the tax necessary.

We should all recognise that we have responsibilities for our communities and country before we demand our rights.

For all its many faults London is for me an excellent place to live. I have travelled to many places few are better than London unless you have a great deal of money.

"A Pity We Arent At War With Islam"

By D.T. Devareaux
April 27, 2006
A Pity We aren't at war with Islam:

A pity because Islam is at war with us. As the recent cartoon shenanigans have proven, casualties need not take the form of smoldering sky scrapers or headless corpses; fundamental American institutions such as a free press and freedom of speech have not only been attacked, but willingly led to the slaughter by those of us entrusted to protect and defend them – respectively, our easily cowed media and our piteously incompetent representatives.

Nor were these casualties given over to an extreme minority; it is ISLAM, not bin Laden’s ragtag rebels, which forbids depictions of Muhammad. ISLAM, not a disenfranchised few, commanded that embassies be burned and the heads of cartoonists be taken. The mobs of Muslims who took to the streets of Europe to threaten new and improved Holocausts and 9/11s weren’t cave-ridden rejects from Western imperialism – they were our Western-dwelling, so-called moderate neighbors (for if they’re not “moderates,” what excuse do we have in allowing such, to say the least, readily radicalized people to live a mere stone’s throw away from civilization?).

Every ridiculous concession made – whether it’s the orientation of British prison toilets or the censoring St. George – is made not to Sheik Abdul Rahman or al-Zarqawi, but to ISLAM. I quoted Laurence Auster before and I’ll quote him yet again because he stated it so succinctly: “the tolerant people, who don’t believe in any particular truth, will begin living under the laws and customs of the religious people, who do.” And those laws and customs, which will we increasingly find ourselves subject to, are not the laws and customs of some mythic minority but of ISLAM.

I understand the reluctance in many peoples’ minds not to address this conflict as an Islamic one. George Washington himself said the best way to make someone your enemy is to declare them as such. The Muslim world is a powder keg and so long as we keep the wick damp with conciliatory rhetoric (e.g. “Islam is a religion of peace”) we think we can prevent its ignition; which may be true, but only for the present. The potential will always exists, until that keg is gutted, for destruction; and as Muslim populations gain majority footholds in Western countries that potentiality will provide them with ever-increasing leverage. The question becomes: do we name the problem now, and deal with the collective tantrum and mayhem of 1.5 billion Muslims, or do we recognize it later when we’re compelled to do so – the necessity of doing so dictated by the proximity of our necks to the chopping block – but only after sizable enclaves of inassimilable and belligerent Muslims spring up within our own cities?

We have the absolute right to apply our laws and honor our institutions, even if that requires discriminating against the laws and institutions of alien cultures; and especially when those alien cultures are openly hostile to our own. The Islam that requires us—through an ever-present threat of violence—to respect it and to honor its laws while scoffing at the slightest intimation of reciprocity is an Islam that does not belong in the West; it is an Islam, will mature and able, that will bare its teeth and mark its territory in our blood. We will only have ourselves to blame for not putting the bloody dog to death when we had the chance.

Losing the Enlightenment

A civilization that has lost confidence in itself cannot confront the Islamists.


Wednesday, November 29, 2006 12:01 a.m. EST

Our current crisis is not yet a catastrophe, but a real loss of confidence of the spirit. The hard-won effort of the Western Enlightenment of some 2,500 years that, along with Judeo-Christian benevolence, is the foundation of our material progress, common decency, and scientific excellence, is at risk in this new millennium.

Sharia Law: The Next Turn Of The Screw By Islam

What happens today in Britain happens tomorrow in the USA.

However, the BBC Radio 4 programme Law in Action produced evidence yesterday that it was being used by some Muslims as an alternative to English criminal law. Aydarus Yusuf, 29, a youth worker from Somalia, recalled a stabbing case that was decided by an unofficial Somali "court" sitting in Woolwich, south-east London.

The Arab Conspiracy (video)

This one may actually be true...

India: Welcome Back To The Empire!

What gives this Freedom Fighter hope in the "Phony War" stage of World War III against Islam is the coming together of the major nations of the former British Empire -- now called the "Anglosphere" of Britain, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand -- with its increasing cultural, military and business relationships.

So finally, the Bush Administration does something right and deals the "India Card" to the former "Jewel" in the British Crown.

The largest trade mission ever assembled by the U.S. government descends on India this week, hoping to boost commerce with one of the world's fastest-growing economies

The Return of Neville Chamberlain?

Islam cannot be appeased.

The difference between the Sunnis and the Shiites today is the difference between the German Nazis and the Italian Fascists of yesterday.

We Are In War To The Death

At least the British press is beginning to get it...

We are in a war to the death – craven concessions won't win it

"Listen Up People!"

To those whining, panty-waisted, pathetic Maggots, it's time for a little refresher course on exactly why we Americans occasionally have to fight wars.

We Are At War....

You wouldn't believe it from all the new construction in Downtown Orlando and the plans to give the city a makeover.
This is the problem: The public does not believe a war is in progress.

Thailand Under Seige By Muslims

The same old story is repeated: Any country in the world that has a large Muslim minority faces a rebellion as they attempt to seize control of the government and establish an Islamic republic.
It is interesting to note that most Americans think the Muslims living in our country are above this sort of thing.
I think not.
Islam is the perfect tyranny that allows no separation of church and state.

Since our last update on November 20, the insurgency in Thailand's southern provinces, despite promises of deals and peace negotiations, seems to be getting worse.

The current insurgency began on 4 January, 2004. A military base in Narathiwat province was raided, with four soldiers killed. A large arsenal of weaponry, with more than 300 guns, including AK-47 and M16 rifles, was stolen. On the same night, twenty schools in the south were set ablaze, in what is called "the night of the fires". For many insurgents, schools are seen as symbols of authority, and as they promote the Thai language, rather than the Malay dialect (Yawi) of the local populace, even Muslim schools and teachers have become victims.

A Welcome To The Newest Freedom Fighter

The Christian People of Ethiopa!

Things are getting positively biblical in the War on Terror’s African front. According to Agence France Presse, Ethiopia is about to attack the Somali Islamists single-handed, on their own hook, and with assistance from nobody. On Thursday Prime Minister Meles Zenawi told the Ethiopian parliament that the Islamists represented “a clear threat to Ethiopia” and that the government had “completed the preparations” for full-scale war. The Islamists, who triggered the crisis by declaring Jihad on the Ethiopians, have (of all possible moves) turned to the United States for mediation.

Making Up The News In Iraq

Remember the recent story of the six Sunnis burned to death by the Shiites? A Blogger discovers that this and other stories coming out of Iraq are the work of enemy propaganda.

The U.S. military said Saturday that Iraqi soldiers securing the Hurriyah area had found only one burned mosque and could not confirm reports that six Sunni civilians had been burned to death with kerosene.

Follow The Money!

The Old Gray Lady of Treason Reports:

The New York Times reports on the financial underpinnings of the insurgencies in Iraq, showing that they have developed well-oiled mechanisms for generating millions in funding for their operations. A significant portion of those funds come from their abduction industry, and the major donors to that program have been France and Italy:

One Year Inside Islam

Yet another American mugged by the reality of the "Religion of Peace."

In a fascinating memoir due in stores in February, "My Year Inside Radical Islam," Gartenstein-Ross describes how he was drawn to Islam because he saw it as a religion of peace.

Over time, however, he watched himself and those around him seduced into a fanaticism that required them to loathe not only non-Muslims, but also Muslims who belonged to the wrong sect, listened to music or shaved. He had expected an open, accepting religion, only to hear sheikhs arguing that Muslims who leave the religion should be killed, that it is acceptable to kill civilians for jihad and that good Muslims should work to replace democratic governments with Shariah law.

Psychological Warfare Wins In Iraq?

Mr. Novak thinks so...

Today, the purpose of war is sharply political, not military; psychological, not physical. The main purpose of war is to dominate the way the enemy imagines and thinks about the war. Warfare is not, these days, won on a grand field of battle. Nor is it won by the force that wins series after series of military victories. Nor is triumph assured by killing far higher numbers of the enemy. The physical side of warfare no longer holds precedence.

Muslims Go Wild Over Pope Visit

In honor of his visit the Muslims murder one of his priests....
A Vatican embassy spokesman in Ankara quoted eyewitnesses as saying the gunman, believed to be 16 or 17 years old, shouted "Allahu Akbar" (Arabic for "God is greatest", a common Muslim chant) as he shot Santoro dead.

The Revenge Of The Leprechauns

Thank goodness the lad didn't question the existence of ALLAH!

"I jokingly asked her if she believed in leprechauns. It turns out, she does. They live on another energy layer," Averill wrote in notes to himself later that day. "In the interest of bringing my own view to the discussion, I began to ask her how she knew these things. Again I know all too well that people can be sensitive about their spiritual beliefs, so I was pretty much walking on glass as I did so."

But speaking of existence...Did anyone tell the School Board about the existence of the First Amendment and freedom of speech in the USA? I do believe Portland is in America.

One Politician ALMOST understands Islam....

Once again -- and everyone please pay attention: There is no such creature as "Radical" Islam. There is no such creature as "Moderate" Islam. There is no such creature as "Islamofascism." There is simply and forever Islam, a religion founded by a psychopath for psychopaths useful for world domination. Islam is the most perfect tyranny ever designed by man. Got it?
Other than that an excellent speech...A pity we don't have more U.S. Congressmen beating the drums like their British cousin.

The Cowardly American Citizen?

How else do you explain the appeasement of Islam except as the fear of barbarians by the civilized?

We are not fighting so that you will offer us something. We are fighting to eliminate you.
Hussein Massawi, a former Hezbollah leader.

“Hostility toward America is a religious duty, and we hope to be rewarded for it by God . . . . I am confident that Muslims will be able to end the legend of the so-called superpower that is America.

The Real Issue Is Illegal Immigration, STUPID!

The vast majority of Americans understand that we are a nation of immigrants and have absolutely no problem with LEGAL immigration and LEGAL immigrant entrepreneurs; however, about 80% of Americans in recent poll have indicated that they have a problem with ILLEGAL immigration, especially from Mexico, that dumps vast numbers of low skilled dependents on the various state welfare and hospital systems.

This is totally unacceptable!

"Fair and Balanced" Fox News too.....

The above is just one example of local Tampa Bay Area Channel 13, now the local Fox affiliate, showing extreme bias against anyone willing to attack Islamic beliefs, in this case Congresswoman Ginny Brown-Waite. This is the piece of MSM trash that will be analyzed bit by bit tonight. This outrageous bit of local journalism also shows the limitless extremes that the station will go to, particularly reporter Craig Patrick, to smear people like Ms. Brown-Waite, even using the absurd tactic of inserting clips of a KKK rally and a historical Nazi clip into the piece. Patrick also seems to, along with his colleagues, Anchors John Wilson and Kathy Fountain, need little prompting to praise and feature CAIR-Florida's Ahmed Bedier. These individuals and the news team at Fox 13 are obviously either suffering from an overdose of political correctness, or are getting something out of their obvious brown-nosing to the local Muslim community. There is simply no reason for a news station anywhere to give airtime to some of the absurd claims that Mr. Bedier has tried to champion, and which he has conveniently uploaded to YouTube for the world to see. Most would ignore some of these issues, and certainly wouldn't feature Mr. Bedier in so many interviews. Yet other local affiliates also feature Bedier, such as Channels 8 and 9, Channel 9 even featuring Bedier for their segment "On the Soapbox". However, of Bedier's 78 uploaded videos on YouTube, (no joke) 13 are from appearances on Fox 13, most with the same on-air "talent" appearing, usually not to do any hardball type of interview, but rather to offer segways for his manipulative statements.

The Good News Of Our Era: The Triumph Of Capitalism

Philosopher-journalist Robert Tracinski of The Intellectual Activist
I think you can see now why I so quickly dismiss any claim that the dominant trend of today's world is toward religious fundamentalism and theocracy. If we look out at the world, the only force we can see that is rapidly spreading across the globe and radically transforming the lives of billions of people, as a long-term trend stretching over decades, is not any form of religion. Not even Islam, the most virulent of the world's religions, can match it. The real transformation of the world is a secular phenomenon. What is transforming the world is scientific and technological education, global capitalism, and representative government. What is transforming the world is the living legacy of the Enlightenment, and it is doing so one mind at a time, in the implicit conclusions of any man who discovers what is going on in the world and chooses to work for a normal life.
The Complete Article:

Yes To USA-Israel Alliance

A grand idea from America's leading conservative newspaper, The Wall Street Journal -

The arguments for supporting Israel are many and varied, and no one argument is decisive. Morality- and values-based arguments are crucial, but a compelling realist argument can also be made for viewing Israel as an asset to the West. It does not take a "lobby" to explain this to the hard-nosed strategic thinkers in the White House and the Pentagon. Of course, Israel always welcomes help from friends, but it does not need the whole array of organizations that claim to work on its behalf. The rationale for keeping Israel strong is hardwired in the realities of the Middle East. The United States does not have an alternative ally of comparable power. And if the institutions of the lobby were to disappear tomorrow, it is quite likely that American and other Western support would continue unabated.

Pat Buchanan Wins Dutch Election

A victory for the anti-Muslims in Holland.

In Marijnissen’s view the immigration problem was not caused by the welfare state but by the capitalist system which invited foreign “guest workers” over to Europe in order to keep the wages of indigenous workers low. Unlike the other leftist parties in Europe the SP was not very fond of immigrants. It cared more for the native lower classes, who felt threatened by the newcomers. In the 1990s the SP’s election slogan was “Against” and one of the things it was against was immigration – this weapon used by the capitalists to exploit the workers.

*U.S. Senator Charles Schumer: "we know [CAIR] has ties to terrorism"
..........................intimate links with Hamas"
Since its founding in 1994, the Council on American-Islamic Relations and its employees have combined, conspired, and agreed with third parties, including, but not limited to, the Islamic Association for Palestine (“IAP”), the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (“HLF”), the Global Relief Foundation (“GRF”), and foreign nationals hostile to the interests of the United States, to provide material support to known terrorist organizations, to advance the Hamas agenda, and to propagate radical Islam. The Council on American-Islamic Relations, and certain of its officers, directors, and employees, have acted in support of, and in furtherance of, this conspiracy.

At the end of this piece I have placed a link to a site that illustrates in a video some of the major developments described below.

You'll love this classic polemic by Ann Coulter:

Six imams removed from a US Airways flight from Minneapolis to Phoenix are calling on Muslims to boycott the airline. If only we could get Muslims to boycott all airlines, we could dispense with airport security altogether. Witnesses said the imams stood to do their evening prayers in the terminal before boarding, chanting "Allah, Allah, Allah" — coincidentally, the last words heard by hundreds of airline passengers on 9/11 before they died.

Reclassify Islam as a political organization

We are on to something with this excellent idea....
One way to deal with Islam that hasn't been fully discussed is to reclassify it as a political organization. Since the major difference between Islam and all other religions is that it wants to establish its own laws, and since the establishment, administration and maintenance of laws is the sole purpose of government, it follows that what we have in Islam is a political project wrapped in the candy coating of a religious community. Once we describe it for what it is, we can then require it to fund its activities in an open way, can more closely monitor its leaders and can tax is properly. Taking this a bit further, I think any close monitoring of any Islamic congregation would quickly find someone advocating sedition. Since this is a serious crime, we could then arrest, charge and convict these Imams of this crime. In other words, let's crack down on the source of terrorism, the heart of darkness, that is Islam.

Happy Thanksgiving Leftist Journalists

In between breathless condemnations of the Bush administration for stifling its free speech, endless court filings demanding classified and sensitive information from the military and intelligence agencies, and self-pitying media industry confabs bemoaning their hemorrhaging circulations (with the exception of the New York Post), my colleagues in the American media don't have much to time to give thanks.

Too Sexy For Jihad: Feminazis In Black

Marie Claire has done it again. The magazine which equates our female soldiers with female Islamic terrorists; the magazine which claims that Islamofascist TV broadcasts are liberalizing the Arab world (Ha!); the magazine which hates Christianity and loves women's lib--that magazine suddenly has selectively, yet again, discarded its feminist ethos to show us what it hopes will be a new fashion trend.

It's lovely how women who think they're so liberated they'll cheer anything anti-American, are embracing their future enslavers. Don't let the cover of December's Marie Claire fool you. Inside are not photos of Ashley Judd's breasts, like on the cover. Instead, lurking inside is a 13-page spread of Islamofascist fashion . . . and an article cheering a lawyer for Gitmo terrorists. Yes, this mag is full of chic . . . or full of something that sounds similar:
