Former British Prime Minister: The West Is Asleep On Islamic Extremism

1 Thessalonians 5:6, “Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober.”

“Western democracies need to wake up to the threat of Islamic extremism, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair has said.

He said that even after 9/11, he underestimated the power of the extremists, and he thinks their power has grown since then.

Radical Muslims seek ‘supremacy not coexistence’, Mr Blair said, and he fears that ‘The West is asleep on this issue’, even though it is the biggest challenge…

He thinks there is a need to tackle the underlying motives of extremist Muslims, not just their violent methods.

The former Prime Minister made the remarks in an interview with the Daily Telegraph’s Charles Moore.

Tony Blair said the anti-religion movement stirred up by people like Richard Dawkins is not the answer…

He said that extreme atheists ‘require religious fundamentalists’ to make their argument for them, and ‘We must push back against aggressive secularism’.

A Bill to tackle the problem of Sharia courts operating in this country has been introduced to the House of Lords by Baroness Cox.

It would give Muslim women more protection from discrimination, and stop a parallel legal system taking root.” Source – The Christian Institute.

Flashback: ‘Caliphate Conference’ Seeks to Islamize America and Europe, Make It An International Crime to Criticize Islam – “A Muslim fundamentalist group is organizing a conference focused on turning Austria and other European countries into Islamic states… The conference is being organized by Hizb ut-Tahrir [Party of Liberation], a pan-Islamic extremist group that seeks to establish a global Islamic state, or caliphate, ruled by Islamic Sharia law. Hizb ut-Tahrir — which is banned in many countries, including Germany, but is free to operate in Austria — is virulently opposed to Western capitalism and democracy and seeks to extend the future caliphate to Europe and the United States.” Read more.

Flashback: Radical Islam: A Global Problem World Leaders Must Confront – “Radical Islam is a growing problem throughout the world. In Europe, it’s a burgeoning issue that politicians have been unwilling to address properly because of the influence of Muslims there, but it’s a critical problem in the United States, too — especially in our nation’s prisons. The mood in the U.S. is so anti-anti-Islam that politicians run for cover whenever Islam is raised as an issue. Not so with Representative Peter King (R-New York). He endured death threats and ridicule from liberals because he held hearings in the House of Representatives to investigate the Islamist threat we face as a nation.” Read more.

Flashback: ‘A Serious Intellectual Failing’: Obama Embraces Islam – “The Obama administration is doing its utmost to promote the fortunes of the Islamist parties in Egypt. A State Department official declared that with the rise of these radical groups after the Arab Spring, ‘people who once might have gone into al Qaeda see an opportunity for a legitimate Islamism.’ They see this as a victory. The problem is, so do the terrorists… from the terrorists’ point of view, it didn’t matter whether an Islamist victory came through violence or not. The means were unimportant except as they related to the end state: the imposition of hard-line Shariah-based laws and policies.” Read more.

    If they’re beginning to make Tony Blair uncomfortable than I’d say that we have a problem!

    If our leaders do not protect us, then we must protect ourselves by any and all means necessary to keep islam and muslims out of our nations, cities, towns and lives.
    An extremist view? Not in the face of the threat we face–this is a War people, nothing less and don’t kid yourselves about it.
    Look at the facts, look at the Pattern of behaviour and such as they enter a nation, city, town and their numbers grow.
    In every single instance it’s always the same pattern.
    It’s a strategy, and being used against us, taking advantage of PolCorr and Leftism.

    Buy a gun, learn how to use it. Learn how to Fight, and I DON’T mean self-defense’ classes, I mean Hand-to-Hand combat and such.
    Don’t be afraid to speak out against this creeping cancer-of-culture that means to end our ways of life.Yes, some will call you ‘Racist’…so what? That word’s been so overused it means little and you can always point out that muslims are NOT a race, they are NOT a genetically-distinct subgroup of Humanity.
    islam is a cult hybridized to a criminal organization–nothing more, and evidence for that is so easy to find, there’s NO problem finding info to support that point.
    It cloaks itself in a rapidly shredding cloak of religiosity, but that cloak is getting very thin.

    To fight islam and such, we must all be as resolute as they are, and then MORE so, we must be as determined to win, and MORE so.

    Otherwise, pay the jizya and accept being called ‘dhimmi’.

    Those are the choices they force on us all.
