The truth about Islam

The Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre (JTAC) has raised the UK international terrorism threat level from Severe to Critical. This means an attack is expected imminently. 

This is following the attempted terror attack at an eastbound district line tube at Parsons Green on Friday 15th September where terrorists planted a ‘Mother of Satan’ nail bomb. The bomb only partially exploded due to a faulty component. Over 30 people were taken to hospital with serious, life changing injuries. 

This is the fifth terrorist attack in Britain this year- our country is no longer safe

Islam is countermanding our Christian beliefs, values and traditions. We are a Christian country- but we are also a country that allow democracy, freedom to choose whatever religion we want to follow and freedom to speak out without fear of persecution. Islam does not allow any other religions to coexist. Islam is a political ideology that requires total submission- there are no choices, women and children are slaves and if you reject Islam, you will be tortured and killed. 

Jihad is the fight against non-believers, a holy war. Most Islamic scholars will deny that violence is the prominent dominator in Jihad but there are are over 109 verses in the Quran that sanction violence- it cannot be taken out of context because it is in context, quite literally. 

Quran (4:89) - "They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks.

Islamic extremists have only one purpose- to oppress, radicalise and dominate. As British people, we need to stand up for what we believe in. We need to stand our ground and not let them win. Islam does not agree with our British culture- they do not agree with democracy, freedom of speech, freedom to be who you want to be, freedom to make choices. Islam is the core opposite of what our country stands for. 

It is devastating to see the current state of our country- but we mustn’t give in. We will do what we’ve always done- that is carry on. Evil has no place in our society- the only way to not let it prevail is to continue living our lives and keep doing good. 

There are many moderate Muslims who do not agree with jihad, who do not possess the same views as Islamic extremists. There are many British Muslims who are proud to be British- we must not forget that. We should not wrongly judge them for the actions of the extremists. We should all come together at a crucial time like this to eradicate terrorism.

I know that regardless of the threats our country faces- the British people will always come together and we have what Islam lacks; love.

Islam is slavery, hate, violence. 

Britain is freedom, love and peace.
