This month we will be demonstrating in Walsall. Why Walsall? That’s a good question. After all, Walsall is not noted for being a centre of Islamic radicalism or militancy. There are no plans for an unwanted mega mosque, there have been no known terrorists from the town. So why Walsall?
Over the last couple of months we have seen how Muslims worldwide will riot and kill over a film and a few silly cartoons about Mohammad. Most of these Muslims were not militant Islamists. They are not jihadists or mujahedeen but most often simple Muslims angered over the perceived insult to their prophet. But what has this got to do with a run-down industrial town in the heartland of England, asides from its large Muslim population?
To be sure it’s not as large as some areas in the Midlands, but it’s still a sizable community. The connection is that the Muslims who have been rioting, killing and burning, are the same kind of peace-loving Muslims who live in Walsall. They have been manipulated by Islamists to create havoc and mayhem, death and destruction over what was a silly, badly-made film that was released over a year ago. The Muslims of Walsall may not be rioting, looting, burning or killing because of this film but they are being manipulated by Islamists.
They are being manipulated to disengage from civil society, to isolate themselves and start to assert Islamic fundamentalist behaviours towards the host population of Walsall. As has happened in Muslim dominated inner-city areas and central town areas up and down the country, the Muslim community is becoming increasingly less integrated: they are deliberately setting up Muslim-only areas. Although there are no similar no-go zones in Walsall yet as in say Sparkhill in Birmingham or Bury Park in Luton, over the last couple of years we have seen a steady increase in assaults on innocent non-Muslim people just going about their business and a steady increase in crimes against women, including rape.
It’s a pattern that has been witnessed all over the UK. It’s a pattern that is being repeated in Walsall. We are beginning to witness the creation of an Islamic no-go zone in the Palfrey park area. Only last year a man was seriously injured in the Palfrey park area as he walked his dog. His only crime in the eyes of the Muslims was that he owned a dog and had brought it into a Muslim area. Earlier this month a young woman was seriously sexually assaulted by a Muslim in the town centre. People are not safe to walk the streets in these areas at night and it’s getting worse.
We are going to Walsall, not to protest about Muslims or even Muslim violence, but to protest about Islam, an ideology that denigrates non-Muslims and places them lower than animals and sees non-Muslim women as targets for grooming and sexual exploitation. We are going to Walsall because the West Indian community is suffering even more attacks every day on their community than the white community of the town. The very same people who stood shoulder-to-shoulder with the Pakistani/Muslim community to fight down the far-right National Front and their racist attacks.
We are going to Walsall to show our support for the West Indian community, to protest the vile ideology of Islam that is splitting communities and breaking down social cohesion. Other ethnic communities, black, white, Afro-Caribbean, European all seem to get along together and have been doing so for many years.
We protest against the vile ideology that denigrates women, that denies equality to them, that denies equal rights to homosexuals, hates Jews and Christians and hates the very culture and civilisation that its followers have chosen to live in. We protest so that no girl in Walsall will be groomed or raped. We protest so that no homosexual has to live in fear of his or her life because of his or her orientation. We protest because it’s our right to protest and to criticise an ideology that permits forced marriage, female genital mutilation, honour killings and so many other beliefs and ways that are incompatible with modern western liberal democratic values and ideals.
Muslims are often the first victims of the sickness that has taken hold of Islam. Our aim is not to protest against them but to fight for a future in which this sickness no longer exists.
We are fed up of Islamists who take any criticism of Islam as evidence that they are being victimised and who, if it wasn’t for these criticisms, would have an even stronger grip over the wider Muslim community.
Walsall may not yet have terrorists, but it does have Islamists. The more they are able to tighten their grip the more the sickness will spread. It’s time to speak out.
That is why we are going to Walsall!
