Britannia, Forever Will Be Slaved

Starkey gets it upside down, as most of our so-called intellectuals do. The “thought crime” in Europe these days is to say that Muslim immigration is a danger to Europe and that Islam cannot coexist with Western civilization. In other words: Fjordman is committing a thought crime, and my views are heretical:

Starkey fears a new intolerance

BRITAIN is in danger of sleepwalking into a new era of religious intolerance after the July 7 bombings, The Times Cheltenham Literature Festival was told last night. Dr David Starkey said that the religious intolerance of previous centuries could be repeated unless society reconsiders its attitute to Church and State. Direct parallels could be drawn between the present and the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries when a common enemy was defined by religious belief, culminating in civil war. The historian voiced alarm at the trend towards “thought crimes” encapsulated in anti-terrorism legislation and what he saw as new Labour’s political correctness. The same trends could be seen, he said, when Henry VIII fused Church and State by declaring himself head of the Church of England. What today might be described as thought crimes, such as expressing any sympathy for suicide bombers, would in previous eras have been termed heresy. The key to present-day threats, he said, was tolerance. In the same way that a multitude of religious sects were allowed to continue without threat of being burnt at the stake after the Restoration, Britain today should tolerate Islam.

The elites want us to kneel, and those daring to show something resembling a backbone should be punished for it:

Time to be open to Islam

From time to time we must own up to our prejudices. One of mine bubbled to the surface this week when Austria threatened to derail European Union accession talks with Turkey. Since the other 24 members backed opening negotiations, the answer, it seemed to me, was pleasingly simple. Austria should be shown the exit as Brussels opened the door to Turkey. I am told that I was not alone in pondering such a resolution as the ministerial bargaining ran late into Sunday night. If the Vienna government feared cultural contamination from Turkish entry, one senior negotiator mused, it should join Switzerland in splendid isolation on Europe’s margins.

This Starkey guy is an idiot. Obviously spending way too much time with his nose in dusty books about England's kings and queens, that he hasn't noticed what's going on in the real world.

Britain is tolerating Islam, way too much. That's the problem. And also, Islam is NOT tolerating everyone else - and hasn't for 1400 years. You'd think a historian like him would know that.

The Times reports the arrest of ten islamist who were planning a festival of peace in Britain.

SCOTLAND YARD has arrested 10 Islamist terror suspects who were thought to be plotting multiple car bombings against targets in Britain in a "follow-up" to the July 7 attacks on London.,,176-1817431,00.html

Starkey wants us to die by the thousands, as this is merely a by-product of Jihad, a manadatory religious requirement for muslims, which we must tolerate. The guy is a loony.

One satisfaction though. The fact that Starkey and others are crying out for tolerance of islam means that the Blogs (and ofcourse the Islamists), are having an effect on public perception of islam. It certainly cannot be the MSM (with the exception of the DT), which has gone out of the way to beguile and mislead the public. The BBC ofcourse wins the prize in misleading the public on this issue.

See, you don't have to be a Muslim to master taqiyya. Starkey is a 'primed' dhimmi, ready for indoctrination and does not want any obstacles placed in the way for Islam. Come out of the closet Starkey, nobody is going throw stones at you for being a Muslim, unless you say the wrong thing, and become a bad Muslim. Then stone throwing is appropriate since you are then an apostate and deserve the same as the kafir.

The problem as I see it is that a suicide bomber kills as many other people as it can get. Suicide bombers don't go in to a field and stand in the middle in order to explode. If this is the case Then Starkey is counseling that someone other than him should die. Others can counsel in the same manner. I feel that with the next plot that Starkey should be transported to the bomb site and forced to stay until the deed is accomplished.

The irony is that Starkey makes no secret of being a flamboyant homosexual.

Another gay who urges toleration for people who want to violently kill gays like him.


With luck Peter Tatchell will rip him a new one.
