On my blog I place a great deal of focus on Europe as I believe that our future is being played out on their streets today.
Following is a link to a piece from the Gatestone Institute concerning the UK that could just as easily be written for Canada.
Extremists in the Heart of Government
A British government body responsible for monitoring the counter-terrorism procedures among Britain’s 44 police forces has admitted, the Daily Telegraph reports, to employing “one of Britain’s most notorious Islamic extremists.”
Abdullah Al-Andalusi, whose real name is Mouloud Farid, worked at Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary, at which he was privy to “highly sensitive and classified police and intelligence information.”
Andalusi passed the required security checks despite his public reputation for collaborating with extremist groups such as Hizb ut-Tahrir, a global Islamist movement, and CAGE, a pro-jihadist group that worked closely with the ISIS executioner “Jihadi John.”
This is no surprise, it happens in Canada as well.
We are not as far down the Rabbit Hole as the UK or France but the tipping point is simply a matter of numbers, making immigration and refugee policy reform critical to our future.
The damage caused by our misguided policy of multiculturalism is another cause for concern.
Multiculturalism plays a large role in our elections.
Our politicians are for the most part driven by short term thinking with the goal of re-election being their principle motivation.
Despite the “good intentions” behind its creation multiculturalism has unsurprisingly morphed into a political tool whose purpose is to divide and conquer.
It creates ethnic strongmen whom our politicians obsequiously court in hope of securing a given bloc of votes.
It creates a perverse “new normal” that results in politicians who whether by accident or design find themselves in compromising situations.
It may be some are genuinely unaware of who they are dealing with, but rest assured others know full well and simply don’t give a damn.
Diversity in this context is not a strength, it is a weakness.
“Community cohesion” — a notorious term that I borrow from the UK, that has meant, among other things, turning a blind eye to Muslim Rape Gangs — cannot be sustained in a society pulled apart by the tribalism encouraged by multiculturalism.
Look to Europe, not for answers but as a warning of things to come.
