Britain's Great Surrender

July 10, 2008

If you read my column titled, “Surrender,” which was published yesterday in most newspapers that carry me and is available on numerous websites including, you’ll see more evidence of Britain’s decline.

Here’s an additional story that should worry more than the British. Two schoolboys received detention when they refused to kneel and pray to Allah during a religious education lesson.

Parents were outraged that the boys were punished for declining to take part in the practical demonstration of how Allah is worshipped. They said forcing children to engage in the practice, which included wearing Muslim head gear, was a breach of their human rights.

Here’s my question: if and when they get around to discussing the Christian faith in the class, do they force Muslim students to kneel and pray in the name of Jesus? What about Jewish students? I would be willing to bet my mortgage payment they do not.

We are witnessing the continued subjugation of all things western and Christian to radical Islam. Who has the courage to stand against it?
