The Guardian ‘celebrates’ the invasion of England by Islam: lauds book entitled ‘Medina in Birmingham, Najaf in Brent’

The new skyline of Birmingham, England.

Innes Bowen is a Radio 4 producer on current affairs who has spent much of the last eight years doing some serious journalism in her free time. What she has come up with is not sensational, but is enormously important.

Her little book on British Islam, Medina in Birmingham, Najaf in Brent, lays out for the first time in terms accessible to a lay audience something of the inner structures and dynamics of Islam in Britain.

For most people who are not Muslims, and certainly for most consumers and producers of the media, “Islam” is a largely undifferentiated set of beliefs, with Muslims being all more or less the same sort of people spread out along a spectrum from “extremist” to “normal”…

    Has anyone else noticed that all of the whack-job, self-hating English women all seem to look the same?
    It’s not a good look.

      Nonsense. She’s no different than dozens of very fine academics I know. And they are people concerned more about ideas than looking like a movie star. Many of them are quite conservative in politics and culture. There’s no evidence she’s ‘self-hating’. She spent 8 years on this project and no doubt tried to be objective. You should too. I’ve not read the book, so I’m not commenting on it, except to say it appears to be ‘Muslimology’, rather than an exposé of foundational jihadism which is the authentic Ur-Islam of the founders of this hideously evil Death Cult. It takes ten years of study to know what I just said about Islam is true, because Islam is so very obtuse and contradictory, without mentioning duplicitous and self-consciously deceitful. Most Muslims are very shallow Muslims and know so little about Islam, it makes one weep. Muslims adhere to this backward Bronze Age evil without knowing how evil it actually is. That’s exactly the trouble with Leftards, such as the guy who wrote this glowing review. He’s totally uninformed about Islam’s doctrines and speaks as if he’s an expert.

      • Oh God why must everyone use “bronze age” as if it were some synonym for “retarded troglodyte”? Atheists do it all the time when they’re talking about the Bible and it begs the heck out of me.

        Horseshit winniec.
        I worked at UCLA for several years and in my capacity there (directly involved in a campus-wide recruitment and retention capacity) I have likely met, and got to know, more world-class faculty than you. That is unless you worked in a similar capacity at Oxford, Cambridge, or some Ivy League institution for longer.
        Did you?
        None of the academics I met were anything to the right of what I would call Libertarian.

        They were all very bright and focused individuals and I would accept advice from my floor janitor before I would them, assuming it was outside their direct field of expertise.

        My comment was on her appearance and not the scholastic quality of her work. I have not read her work, and as of now I have no intention of doing so, but what I find even more curious is her “uniform”.

    I feel ill just looking at the picture. It’s disgusting.
