UK: How Portsmouth became a hotbed of radicalised Muslims and far-right thugs

“The Pompey Lads met regularly at the Jami Mosque, but while the police continue to work closely with the imams – and despite what the EDL claims – nobody believes this is where young people get radicalised. ‘All the mosques in this country are against terrorism,’ says Mohammed Mukith, 56, a former secretary of the Jami Mosque. ‘In Islam there is no place for terrorism; these children are all radicalised on the internet. Parents don’t know what they are doing. Years ago children used a computer. Then it was a laptop. Now it is a mobile.’

The Telegraph has been going steadily down hill for the past year, this sort of tripe is now common in its pages…

What would our Fathers and grandfather’s think? “Emerging from a hundred harbors up and down England, the ships assembled just south of the Isle of Wight, off Portsmouth, at a point the sailors referred to as Piccadilly Circus, then headed south.”

    What would their fathers and grandfathers have thought? Might as well have been conquered by Nazism instead of by Islam?

    • Sad but true.

    • Frau Katze

      It’s so depressing to think about.

  • Allan

    Yeah and did you know the Pope was Protestant?

    And of course there is no connection at all between the rise of Islam and “Far Right Thugs”. The “Far Right Thugs” arose in a total vacuum.

    • Frau Katze

      Of course. Dawa orgs, Libyan bakeries? WTF?

      There is also concern at what the EDL may have in store on the other side of town. As on every Saturday afternoon, volunteers from the Portsmouth Dawah – an Islamic street-proselytising group – are standing outside Debenhams handing out Libyan basbousa cake and flyers to passers-by. The group occupies the same section of high street as proponents of various faiths: Jehovah’s Witnesses, a man in a sandwich board predicting a second coming; not to mention political campaigners.

    Far right thugs? It’s the far left causing all the problems, defending the terror mosques, rallying for grooming gangs, making excuses for jihadists.

    • Zaba

      If one goes far enuff Left, one becomes radicalized…..or something.

  • cmh

    they are right, it’s not the mosques….it is the koran….ban the koran

    • Zaba

      Ban islam.
      Let all muzlims choose a religion or none.

  • moraywatson

    Well the chap was right when he said muslims live in a society where the feel marginalized. That society is called islam. Nothing makes individuals feels more marginalized than totalitarianism.

  • Zaba

    ‘In Islam there is no place for terrorism; these children are all radicalised on the internet

    Classic, boring takiya.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    All the mosques in Britain are against terrorism, except when they are for it.

    • Minicapt

      They are against terrorism, because that is something practiced by the infidel; they, on the other hand, support and encourage ‘jihad’ because is is a doctrinal mandate. Mohammed the Perfect Example made it so.
