What do they really believe?

6We’ve been having a bit of a discussion amongst ourselves here at EBF. We’re a tight-knit team and most of the time we resolve our disagreements pretty quickly. That’s what happens when reasonable people are prepared to listen to each other and weigh up all sides of an argument before reaching a decision.

This time it’s different though. This time we’re still unsure. So we’re asking for opinions from you, the backbone of EBF who help to spread our message so thoroughly through your social media accounts and everyday conversations.

The question we’re having trouble answering is this…

Do the rank and file Biffers really not know that they’re being lied to?

We’re not asking about BF’s core Biffers and leadership. They clearly know the truth. Their behaviours and responses make it absolutely clear that they’re lying consciously and deliberately. It’s the ordinary people they’re sucking into their hatred who we’re uncertain  about.

Please let us know your thoughts on this. We think it’s an important question, not least because knowing the answer will help us to be more effective in reaching those who support Britain First and spread its hatred.

We know that traditionally EBF supporters tend to leave comments on Facebook and that’s great. But in this case we’d like to ask that you reply on the blog. Of course, you’re very welcome to comment on Facebook too but if we get all the responses in one place it’ll be much easier for us to collate your replies.

So go on – let us know your opinion…

Are Britain First’s supporters really as blinkered as all that or are they deliberately ignoring the truth for their own reasons?

Just leave a reply below and dive in.

  1. Methinks you anti-biffers protest too much. On occasions you go overboard in your condemnation of BF.This makes many of BF’s supporters believe that there must be a lot right with the organisation and that you lot are just shit stirring in desperation to do BF damage. It will take a far more measured approach to dealing with a group you so obviously hate than you have displayed so far.

    • I’ve yet to see a biffa comment “I’m quite concerned about the increase of Islam in the UK,” so I can’t comment on what the reaction would be at EBF should that happen.
      What sort of response is appropriate to “burn it down with Muslim kids in,” is appropriate?
      Or are you bringing out the canard that “you can’t say anything without being called racist?”
      I’d love a debate on the issues but I’m still waiting.

      • I am mystified that the very word “racist” is bandied about so freely among adherents of EBF. How many more times is it necessary to point out that Islam and muslims are NOT a race. I among a multitude of concerned Brits are extremely worried about the ever increasing Islamization of the UK and other countries across Europe like Sweden,Norway, France, Germany,Belgium,Holland and Spain., Stealth Jihad is a large part of the problem where Muslim parents have on average twice the number of children as other couples. A large part of such jihad is the large number of extremist mosques and muslim proseletyzing in colleges and universities. Islamic organisations such as CAGE have known ties to the Muslim Brotherhood whilst doing their very best to be seen as opposing jihad and terrorism.The ultimate goal is the complete takeover of the world;s democracies and establish the Ummah,the universal world of Islam ruled by shari’a law.

      • David, the word racist is bandied about so freely because more often than not scratch beneath the surface their is racist motives. Take for example a story about an Asian man committing a crime that Britain First post, the story will not mention the man’s religious beliefs anywhere yet inevitably commenter’s will call “muzzie” or some other poorly considered derogatory, colloquial word for Muslim. There was even one case where there was an awful story (can’t remember what off the top of my head) with a picture of a man speaking out but because he was Asian commenter’s assumed he was the perpetrator despite being 100% innocent. This is all based on the assumption that all Muslims are extremists – the most commonly held belief amongst Britain First supporters such as yourself. Of course this assumption is wrong but the premise of my argument holds because it is based on the logic used. By assuming that every Asian is Muslim that is inherently racist.

        Lets just assume for the minute that we are all completely wrong and none of you are at all racist in anyway. I do have a point to this that follows on from above so bear with me on this. Let us just assume that the only people you target are Muslims and that this targeting is in no way affected by any preconceptions of what a Muslim looks like. What you are left with is hate. When you boil everything else away what is left is hatred and bigotry. These fundamental things are what you claim to be against yet the behaviour of the average Britain First based on their posts is hatred and bigotry. How can you justify being better than ISIS and other such groups when you display the same behaviour and advocate horrendous crimes against Muslims? I think my point has been made.

        • Grizzlyvamp, I have very obviously upset you. You may be relieved to learn that particularly since the BF’s monumental and laughable disaster at Dudley I have totally revised my opinion about this bunch of uneducated idiots. However, I resent bitterly your comment about my being a racist and an Islamophobe. I have no problem with MUSLIMS but I loathe Islam-which is NOT a race! There are so many deluded people around-many on here-who believe that they can just pick various bits of the Qur’an and find nice things in it. How wrong can they be. As I have stated before on here I have studied the Qur’an,the Hadith(sayings of Muhammad) and Sunnah (traditions of the Prophet) for 15+ years, together with articles by Robert Spencer an acclaimed expert on Islam and I have read the world famous books by Ibn Warraq an EX Muslim “Why I am not a muslim” and “Leaving Islam”

          The ONLY version of that unholy book permitted by the leading school of Islamic jurisprudence,the Al Azhar University in Cairo is the one collated by Caliph Uthman in around 760AD some 30 years after Muhammad’s death. It contains over 100 verses detailing all sorts of extremely nasty death and destruction of non-muslims,particularly Jews-and even Christians-referring to Jews as “apes and pigs”. Apparently I have run out of space but I do not dislike muslims per se but i do thoroughly dislike those who live here and come here to enjoy all the benefits(literally in so many cases)and spend so much of their time complaining about our culture(SO much superior to Islam’s) whilst DEMANDING shari’a law, mega mosques at a time when THOUSANDS of churches in the ME built 350 years before Muhammad invented Islam are being desecrated, separate swimming baths for muslim children,separate entrances to university halls of residence,halal meat, wearing full face veils( unknown in a Christian country which David Cameron affirmed we were recently, and taking the piss in reviling our police and our soldiers. I am and always have been a huge supporter of so-called “moderate” muslims yet very few-if any-on here realise that ORTHODOX Islam regards these in the same light as we Infidels and if shari’a law was practised here they would be in danger of dire punishment even death. It is now Wednesday morning and I must get some beauty?? sleep but I do hope that in future you will not brand me as a racist which by hating Islam I cannot be only a religionist!

      • David, the word “Racist” was clarified decades ago not to be limited to an outdated concept of “race”.
        What’s more, the word “race” itself simply means “root”. People can have religious as well as genetic roots. It’s a very small percentage of people who follow a religion different from their parents’.
        You are perfectly free never to have to use the word “Racism” to mean prejudice on grounds of religion but that is a valid meaning. You don’t get to tell others that they cannot use one particular meaning of a word because you don’t use it that way.
        So I’d have referred to as racist those who in the 70s and 80s pointed to the relatively high birth rates of Irish immigrants as a Catholic invasion. They were wrong then, why should anyone listen to the same narrative aimed at a different set of immigrants?

BF could be (in my very humble opinion) and im looking at this in terms of how a hostile take over commercially works, could be destroyed in no more than 90 days. 90 days in business terms being the magic number. they need finance and they steal finance from those very brave and humble Souls or our Armed forces. I would personally arrange for a TV crew with someone like John Mcknight and a wounded and young veteran to visit Lewis and Lomax at home. Make them sit down face to face with the full horror of what these brave young Men have to live with eg the rest of their lives without limbs. Make them look into the eyes of these brave wounded men and let the emotion of guilt, shame and remorse do the rest. veterans from Iraq or Afghanistan and allow the BF guys to realize these Men dont hate Muslims. When they are doorstepped they are in a catch 22 they either do the interview and they are confronted with the reality of the deception they are caught up in or they are humiliated on national TV this would then create amazing media coverage kill off the lifeblood of money into the ideology and then also remove the core players. They do however need to be offered some carrot given these people are simply lost Souls. Allow them to speak without the organ grinder. Hear there fears and address them with respect and in truth and the hate would fall away. Or they are humiliated on national TV (pardon the syntax im on a BB) they would also need a new cause given thats what their need is “to feel important” Golding would then be left alone with no money, no credibility and no people . This is what I would do hope that helps

      • David, Muslims follow Islam – therefore by extension you loathe (your word not mine) Muslims since you loathe their religion. I hereby rest my case on my Islamophobe statement but in case you want a stronger case “I loathe Islam” I think says it all as they are your words.

        As for the racism comment I never directly called you racist though I appreciate there was implication when I said “the most commonly held belief amongst Britain First supporters such as yourself.” which from your comments I assumed you were. In my defence you admitted to supporting Britain First until very recently and your attitude reflects that. If you are honestly telling me that you have never accused someone of being Muslim because they are Asian/Black or told someone to go back to their country based on the colour of their skin then I honestly appologise and rescind my accusation, however if you have thought like that then I stand by my statement as that attitude is completely racist. Lie if you want, no one here will be able to verify either way and I am sure that everyone will take your word for it but I would remind you that you would know deep down that your lying. Either way I stand by what I said both in this post and my previous post.

        • grizzlyvamp, I do not enjoy calling anyone stupid.However your statement that it is not possible to hate Islam without hating muslims is utterly wrong and ludicrous! It’s very much like going to an art exhibition and hating a picture there,not even knowing the painter and saying that you hate him/her.

          My attitude to the whole business might well be summed up by the celebrated French explorer,expert on Middle East ancient languages,philosopher,historian and writer,Ernest Ronan who towards the end of C19 wrote: ” Muslims are the first victims of Islam. Many times I have observed in my travels in the Orient that fanaticism comes from a small number of dangerous men who maintain the others in the practice of religion by terror. TO LIBERATE THE MUSLIM FROM HIS RELIGION IS THE VERY BEST SERVICE THAT ONE CAN RENDER HIM!

          I strongly suggest that it is people like you who obviously know little or nothing about the subject in hand and are happy to print lies as truths who carry on making matters between Muslims and others so bitter. Muslims who do not follow the horrible and unholy book the Qur’an are in the same very dangerous position as all those who did not support Communism,Fascism or Nazism and all fair minded people must be vigilant to protect them and ensure their safety.

    • David, firstly I resent being called stupid. For one your analogy does not even work on any level – of course you wouldn’t hate an artist for a painting they created that you don’t like. Religious hatred does not work like that in any way. My observation is that intense religious hatred results in the persecution of followers – you don’t even have to look long to see exactly what I mean, just look at the Britain First Facebook page, look at the BNP, EDL and other such groups. Heck look at the average on-line theist vs atheist debate. Even factoring in “internet anonymity” the point still stands as these are often clearly the deep seated views held. Of course as with most things there are exceptions to the rules but in my experience in 98 – 99% of cases where people express such views you don’t have to scratch much below the surface to see that hatred directed at followers and more often than not their is a racist component to that hate.

      As for Islam itself being a Christian I fundamentally believe they have some wrong ideas but we’ll leave that here as I’m not open to a discussion on this here. I recognise that there are passages in the Quran that aren’t particularly nice however not only do you need them in context but you have to recognise that there are passages in the Bible which are similar yet clearly your feelings there are not as strong. What your beliefs are regarding religion as a whole is irrelevant to this. This is about your loathing of Islam and nothing else. It is people interpretations of the books that matter and the vast majority of Muslims I know are after the same thing the majority of us are after – peace, the right to carry out their faith without the fear of persecution/torture etc. There are many cases of Imams and other religious figures and followers of Islam rejecting ISIS and other extreme groups who were just as appalled as we were at 9/11, the 7/7 London bombings and the Rigby execution to name just 3 major incidents, I’m sure EBF will be more than happy to direct you to such material if your struggling to find those posts on the Facebook page. There are also plenty of stories which have put Christians in general to shame because Muslims have acted more like Christians than the Christians have. I hope my point is clear and more important you understand the logic behind the point.

      • grizzlyvamp it would not matter to me WHAT you are for me to insist that the Qur’an is not acceptable as a guide on how to live one’s life. I thought that I had already given you chapter and verse as to the ONLY version of the Qur’an accepted by the four Islamic schools of Jurisprudence led by the Al Azhar University in Cairo. So are you not being somewhat disingenuous when you talk about interpretations to suit divers indidividual muslims? To even begin to have credence in an IDEOLOGY where even in virtually ALL versions Muhammad comes across very strongly as a mass murderer(He killed all the men of the Jewish Banu Qurayza tribe),a war lord,a pedophile, a misogynist, and a slave taker You say you are a Christian so please stop quoting the Bible which is mainly for the Jews and delve into the New Testament which is for Christians and the entire world. How can the Uthman or other copies of that horrid book compare to Christ’s wonderful Sermon on the Mount,the perfect guide on how to be and how to live one’s life. There are also far more stories of Christian aid and charity outweighing Muslim and that of all other faiths together. When there are disasters in Muslim countries which are often deadly and claiming a multitude of lives and the ruination of homes it is invariably the UK and other Christian countries which rush to help and donate money and vital supplies-FACT! The Arab League and fellow Muslim countries are generally nowhere to be seen viz the Ebola crisis. Christ made helping the poor and sick the cornerstone of his teaching . Charity is also a feature of the Quran but it is not a cornerstone although SUBMISSION(a horrid word) is.

        I am certainly not struggling to find information on the major incidents you mention. You,however,might be interested in googling JIHAD WATCH and learning about the literally DOZEN terrorist incidents happening almost on a daily basis. Jesus warned us about “false prophets” and I include the Prophet Muhammad in that context. Ernest Ronan the C19 French expert on ME ancient languages(he could read the Qur’an in ancient arabic), philosopher, historian,explorer and writer wrote: “Muslims are the first victims of Islam. Many times I have observed in my travels in the Orient that fanaticism comes from a small number of dangerous men who maintain the others in the practice of religion by terror.To liberate the Muslim from his religion is the best service that one can render him” I rest my case.

      • David, all respected Christian schools of thought state you cannot ignore the Old testament to the New testament and so your entire argument falls to pieces. I will also point out that through out the New Testament Jesus says he came not to remove or negate the law (ie the Old testament) but to fulfil it which clearly challenges your theology on this. There are plenty of New testament references from Paul and Peter and others which back this up further despite the fact that it is only Jesus’ word that matters but I mention it just in case you require further evidence. My personal interpretation is that on the cross Jesus removed the consequences of the law for those who believe but that does not mean that your sin is without consequence in this world, not that it should matter though. I would also point out that at no point did I quote scripture at you merely referring you to Old testament scripture which as I point out is as valid as point someone to New testament scripture.

        You cannot have things both ways either the Quran is unacceptable or it is acceptable to the point of tolerance. You have been completely inconsistent in your view of Islam and Muslims throughout this discussion. Besides David was an adulterer and murderer, Noah was a drunk, Jacob was a liar, Peter betrayed Jesus by denying him 3 times and Paul was a well known persecutor of Christians before the road to Damascus which he was on to go and persecute more Christians before his encounter. Point is that key characters from the bible were in God’s eyes no worse than Muhammad. I reject Muhammad’s claims and believe those who accept his claims are misguided but I would never consider harming a Muslim for their belief.

        As for the Muhammad was a paedophile claims for one the modern concept of being an adult/of consenting age has only been around for about 150/200 years. Before that the age you were considered an adult/allowed to drink, consent to sex/marriage etc was the age you hit puberty somewhere between 11-14 being a ball park. Whatever your view on if this was right or not is irrelevant as it was acceptable back then and therefore the social norm ie widely practised. Since the age of Aiysha is widely disputed but as far as I am aware it is generally acknowledged that she had been through puberty based on the above criteria he did nothing wrong irrespective of modern views and it is very clear that she was consenting. Therefore it is in my view that Muhammad would not have taken Aiysha the age he did (as I am under the impression she was under 16 when he took her to be his wife) due to modern conventional views. Far too often I see things from both the Quran and the Bible rejected because modern views/context are used to judge the scenario rather than the views/context of the time in which it was written in.

    Mostly, though, they fall for the lies. No difference if the liar is motivated by pure hate, pure profiteering or a mix of the two.

    Unprovoked hatred has only one source; fear. That may sound at a tangent to the question but it does provide an answer of sorts. Racists are more prone to fear. They fear learning that they’ve been lied to so they go easily into denial. They lash out when challenged. They overcompensate, sometimes violently.

        I think that BF harassing Islamic extremists causes more problems and doesn’t solve any. It increases the publicity for them which means they:-
        1. Need police protection (whether they deserve it is a different question)
        2. Attract more followers
        3. Through the persecution. & discrimination of BF validate their extreme opinions and teachings.
        4. Get asked for comment by the press on religious matters instead of the majority of Muslims who disagree with them.

  5. I have taken the time to read most comments on Britain’s First Facebook page and I am disgusted with how these people can call themselves a fellow Brit like myself.
    Whenever an article is posted on there page it always gets the same uneducated and delusion comments from there followers, I will give an example.

    21 year old British Muslim girl kills herself and the family are caught trying to flee, they were sent back to the UK for police investigation and released without charge.
    the idiots who follow Britain First had nothing constructive to say, no comments of sadness for the girl who killed herself or anything just because herself and the family were Muslim.

    “Why did you send them back, just let them leave we don;t want them here” <– this is the kind of comments I read and its disgusting she was a human being and just because she was Muslim they disregarded her death as if she was an animal you had run over.

    There is no such thing as Islamification it is just something the stupid throw around to justify there hatred. All these Muslim people want is a place to worship, and they can't even get that with how disgusting the British public react to it just because of there religion.
    Everyone regardless of race or religion should have a place, a proper place to worship and practice there belief that is called equality.
    Sadly for people of Britain First and other like minded fools equality in there mind only exist for those who believe in there ideas.

    There party is no different than the Nazi party in Germany if you didn't follow them you were a traitor to the country, just like what BF say to those who think differently.

    • Until I read your comment I did not realise that one could be SO wrong! I just have to say it is pure drivel.

      Several well respected think tanks have produced articles on creeping shari’a across Europe and in 2014 the particularly well regarded Gatestone Institute prepared a damning report for the UK Government on the subject. Your next untruth refers to mosques. Whereas Christian churches of which there were literally thousands across the Middle East for 350 years before Islam was founded in 7014 AD have been desecrated in most Islamic countries and Christians denied permission to repair them or build another in their place! In the UK it is extremely rare for applications for a mosque-even a mega mosque-to be turned down.So much for your dozy idea of equality and fairness.Apart from anything else in the UK nobody blows up or desecrates mosques.

      I have finally come to the conclusion that Britain First go way over the top but to equate them to the Nazi Party(and by the way the BF are NOT a Party) is just ludicrous. ISLAM,however is an ideology far more cruel, misogynistic and totalitarian even than Communism and Nazism. and the punishment for leaving it is death! And,the word is THEIR not there.

      • I am not denying that some followers of Islam take there religion to seriously or better yet warp it to a point where use it as an excuse to kill people who do not follow there faith.
        Fact of the matter is that there is a big different between educated believers and those who run on blind faith. I know many Muslim people and they have been more kind and well spoken when compared to my native British people, not one Muslim I have spoken to has ever wanted Shari’a law in the UK as the point of them moving here was to get away from that kind of thing. They want the freedom that we all take for granted yet we want to deny them that out of pure fear and not understanding what is different.

        It is the stupidity of people who group every Muslims under the same banner that cause the problems, every single BF post I see reflects this by saying “All Muslims” instead of just the bad ones who want to change the country to be more like there own.

        Your argument on the state of churches in Islamic countries isn’t really fair, you leave out the fact that those countries are not democratic and like I said before are heavily religious based as well. So of course a foreign religion would not be wanted or welcome in that county this is the big difference between the UK and them.
        the UK is meant to be a country of equality where everyone’s rights are respected. I have no problem with any religion wanting to have a place to worship there god, there is no logical reason to oppose it at all.

        You want to live here ? go ahead
        You want a place to pray ? Fair enough
        You want your laws in out country ?… No if you don’t like our laws then go back home.

        I also like how you did not mention how in 2011 a white man who was released from prison tried to set up a sharia law zone in the UK
        http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2020382/You-entering-Sharia-law-Britain-As-Islamic-extremists-declare-Sharia-law-zone-London-suburb-worrying-social-moral-implications.html

        I think you would agree with me that this kind of thing is disgusting and should not be allowed to exist, but again the article clearly states that the Muslims who want it are extreme Muslims who came here to push there ideas on us.

        how come it is easy for us to point the finger at ALL Muslims instead of the ones who are doing it on purpose ?

          Mosques therefore based on exactly the same logic are alien structures in Britain a country which has been Christian since St.Augustine converted King Aethelred the Saxon King of Kent to Christianity in 601AD! David Cameron in his Christmas address stated clearly that Britain is a Christian country. In my opinion the UK is extremely-and perhaps foolishly -generous to Islam and Muslim’s demands on mosques,halal food,shari’a courts, the wearing of full face veils, the provision of separate swimming pools for muslims, separate entrances for women and men in mosques and the separation of the two sexes in university halls-Need I go on for the next three or four lines to describe other DEMANDS not requests. Can you begin to imagine what would happen to a deputation of Christians making ANY demands in front of the King’s palace in Saudi Arabia?? Britain has welcomed Jews,Sikhs and Hindus into this country and THEIR synagogues,and temples and yet it is only Muslims who are loath to integrate,learn English,respect our Judeo-Christian religion and culture, and respect our 800 year(Magna Carta) English Law and the increasing demand for shari’a courts. Fairness and equality are not words that have a place in this debate!

  6. They dont think, they are driven by fear and anger meaning they are “propelled,” & manipulated they willingly surrender to the ideology. They take on a lower group consciousness ( a low vibration). this is an addictive state given its unreal. they externalize all that anger on to Islam, it use to be on to the Black community and before that the Jewish community. Fear is a toxic force and anger makes them feel alive. They become the ideology basically. We also have the issue that they are (and im not being stereotypical), of very low intelligence. Many of them are also in addictive processes. Steve Lewis is a compulsive over eater, chain smoker and very co-dependent. He cannot manage his emotions and eats on them. Golding is simply evil, Fransen im unsure about as yet what her drivers are and welcome any insight as from a cognitive level she does have a form of intelligence but emotionally and spiritually she is an enigma, her eyes do have an evil fire in them mind you(hate) . . It would be SIMPLE to destroy Britain First and could be done in 90 days. So to close they dont believe, in anything, they fear which is the opposite of belief. paradoxical but true. keep up the very good work it is a pleasure to read. thank you for your service.

As far as BF are concerned may I suggest that you save yourself and others on EBF time and trouble and leave BF to self explode.

I would tolerate BF if they opposed Islam and sympathised with muslims having to kowtow to the nastiest ideology on earth comparable to Communism and Nazism.

    I have been in a relationship with a Muslim woman for a few year, while she was born and raised in Europe her parents were from Iran & Iraq as such there views and opinions on there religion differ.
    She being raised in the west while being a proud Muslim does not believe that all the rules should be followed anymore as they are old and don’t work in our ever changing society
    She even took the time to tell me about the Qur’an and how its message depends on how you interpret it as such she can see nothing evil or hostile in it again non believers. .
    Her parents on the other hand are very old fashioned following there religion to the book to the point where they tried to break us up.

    • Aaron Hi! I look forward to your posts more than any others as you display so little- if any- bias about anyone or any thing. AS I have stated in another post I have studied Islam from the Qur’an( their holy book) , the Hadith(sayings and deeds of Muhammad) and Sunnah(tradition of the Prophet) for 15+ years. The often quoted mistake about the Qur’an is that there are hundreds of versions all saying different things. The ONLY version that the leading school of jurisprudence the Al Azhar University in Cairo will allow as the only GENUINE one is that collated by Caliph Uthman in around 760 AD some 30 years after Muhammad died. This version is an extremely violent one. I wont unless you ask me to in a later post give you the chapter and verses but they call for all Jews to be exterminated- they are referred to as “apes and pigs”, for Infidels(non-muslims) to be “struck at their necks until dead” and for all infidels to SUBMIT to Allah or pay a special tax(jizzya), live like dhimmies(second class citizens) or be killed. Bless you in your comments on Muslims in general. The big problem as I see it is that so-called “moderate” muslims are not considered proper muslims and would face death by orthodox muslims just like non-muslims. So,as you so rightly said we must take great trouble to protect these muslims who fully intend to integrate,observe our English Law dating from Magna Carta in 1215,respect our Judeo-Christian religion and culture, do not set up ghettos and Islamic no go areas and certainly deplore the musim grooming gangs in Rotherham and many other cities all this giving “our” muslims a totally unfair name. I do hope that my post is of help to you?

      • Hey David
        I always try to keep an open mind on any and all issues, all thought what I currently think about people, places, religion and so forth are all from my own life experiences.
        While I can claim that I have never met a “bad” follower of Islam I do know other people have had the opposite encounter, yet it baffles me why we as a person are so eager to blame the whole for the actions and disgusting behavior of the few.
        Even if the Qur’an is violent in its original form humans in general are very violent with or without it, the amount of conflict between ourselves throughout history shows that without knowledge we are no better than animals.

        I do not label myself as an Atheist but I just do not see the point of religion in any way. In Christianity they tortured and burned people at the stake for being a witch which conventionality makes them in league with the devil.
        In my eyes all the church was doing was removing the more educated, the people who discovered that certain plants in nature can heal a wound or cure an ailment the real people who were doing “good” were killed.
        I always like the phrases “knowledge if power” or “The pen is mightier than the sword” With knowledge comes understanding and with it the ability to move forward as a species and as a people. Religion on the other hand goes against this as they do not need you to know anything just have faith in there god and you shall be saved as long as you live how they tell you, blind and ignorant.

        This is probably way of topic but I say all this as I feel these “new” peaceful Muslims are those who have knowledge, those who have looked at the Qur’an and it wrong or out of date for the modern world.
        The Muslims I have been lucky to know have always made me feel there version of Islam is amazing, During the time of fasting they have said they do it so that they may understand the feelings of those less fortunate, those without the ability to eat a basic meal.
        If they can’t fast they go out and do charity work helping the poor and needy while I get this from British people “I ain’t giving no one £2 to help someone in another country why not spend that money here instead”

        In the end people who desperately cling to old religious texts over time will find themselves unable to live in the current world, I want to believe that as a species we are moving towards unification where we see each other as just people not separated by our skin colour, origin or faith but just one race and that is human.
        If not then we doom to repeat the past and as technology gives us more ways to kill each other it is only a matter of time until we destroy ourselves in the name of a god or a country.

        • As usual Aaron you make many good points. I am a deeply flawed Christian .My life is littered with things I should not have done and those I should have done.Yet nobody in history has delivered such a truly wonderful exposition on life and how it should be lived than Jesus Christ with his gorgeous Sermon on the Mount(St.Mathew 5) May I take the liberty of asking you to read it, it is a way of life that all human beings should follow whether they are religious or not. ” But I say unto you,love your enemies,bless them that curse you,do good to them that hate you and pray for them who despitefully use you and persecute you”

          It is a sad fact that Islam has always been an ideology that together with Communism,Fascism and Nazism has been responsible for hundreds of millions deaths. The eminent expert on militant Islam Professor Sam Harris has calculated that Muslim armies since the death of Muhammad in AD732 have been responsible for 250 million deaths. This is understandable only if this tragedy is connected to the ORIGINAL and only legitimate Caliph Uthman Qur’an.As the incredibly gifted C19 French expert on ME ancient languages ,philosopher,historian and writer, Ernest Ronan wrote: ” Muslims are the first victims of Islam. Many times I have observed in my travels in the Orient that fanaticism comes from a small number of dangerous men who maintain the others in the practice of religion by terror.To liberate the Muslim from his religion is the best service that one can render him”

          Your happy,kind and pleasant Muslims are,unfortunately,following a Quran which makes them in the eyes of all powerful orthodox muslims, Anjem Choudary,Abu Izzadeen, ISIS,Al Qaeda,Boko Haram,Al Shabaab,Hezbollah and Hamas to be as much to be killed or forced to submit as any non-muslims!

          Sir Winston Churchill,by common consent the greatest ever Englishman fought the Mahdi and his fuzzy wuzzies in the Sudan in the 1890s. In his famous book of 1899, The River War he wrote ” Islam is as dangerous in a man as rabies in a dog” and ” Islam is the strongest retrograde force in the world” William Gladstone,one of our greatest PMs once held up a copy(Uthman) of the Quran in the House of Commons and declared “As long as there is this book there will be no peace in the world” Finally I urge you to google the website JIHAD WATCH and learn of the horrors it unfolds. I rest my case..

    My dad fought in Egypt and even after everything he has seen he to is not happy with how we the British people are treating Muslims.

    Like you said it is only Muslims who are refusing to integrate, and it is those Muslims I would say need to go back home or learn to live in the UK like British people.
    However many Muslims integrate fine because they came here to live like British people and those are the Muslims who are never represented by anyone.

    I ask you David why is no one standing up for the Muslims who stand behind this country like we do and want to keep Britain as it is ?
    We as a people need to stop labeling all Muslims as the same and properly separate the ones who are causing all this trouble and want to change the UK into something it is not. And yes the government need to put a foot down and say NO to all these stupid demands.

    Hate is like an illness. It steals our hope, our love, our relationships. Hate puts distance between people. Hate can give us a false sense of power. Do I use hate to make myself feel important? Hate also leaves us open to being controlled and manipulated meaning our reality is no longer conscious.
    To be spiritually and emotionally free and enlightened we must let go of hate. Hate and Love don’t mix. Hate doesn’t let us connect to God.

    Christ taught us to live with love and respect. We’re taught that if someone treats us wrong, we still should be respectful in our response. Why? Because we’re changed by our actions. If we act with hate, we become hateful. If we act in a respectful way, we become respectable.

It is a dispensation from Muhammad used mainly by Shias generally in a dispute with Sunnis or non-muslims whereby a muslim can deny his or her faith or commit otherwise illegal or blasphemous acts specially when they are in fear or at risk of persecution. I have no idea what BF say about it but it is one of the least reputable aspects of Islam leading up to many disputes and lack of trust in debates and arguments.

      • As usual, with Taqiya, context is all. If any Muslims would like to correct me on this then please do, but my understanding of the concept is that a Muslim can deny or renounce their faith if their life is threatened ie. they have been captured and threatened with death for being a Muslim or refusing to renounce their faith. Taqiya allows them to do so without fear of punishment in the afterlife. Likewise, non-Halal food is permissable if there is no other source of food to sustain them. Funny, for what Biffers refer to as a “death cult” they seem quite open to bending the rules to avoid death…

They claim, like BF, to be only against Islamic extremism, yet They will often write disgusting comments promoting the destruction of places of worship, the murder of young muslim children, genocide, etc then claim that it is in fact Islam that is evil. They will quite often finish their post with ‘no surrender’, an old school neo nazi slogan, originally aimed at irish catholics and sometimes ‘FTP’ (fuck the Pope), which has nothing to do with Islamic extremism.

  18. David – technically muslim women shouldn’t shake the hand of any man who isnt a ”mahram’ i.e isnt a son, brother father, husband and some other relatives, i cant remember the exact definition. Its not to do with infidels. I shake hands at interviews, and if a man puts his hand out then i shake it as it would be rude not to. I dont believe thats going to send me to hell! I wasnt aware the quran says muslims are the best of people but i guess if islam is the best way of life then yes the followers would be the best people. Does that mean i think im superior to you? Of course not. It is sad that people would use this to think they are superior to others but thats their crappy personality not the religion. The Western world thinks its way of life is superior all the time…you dont need religious backing to be full of yourself.

  19. Theres so many mosques because there are so many sects within islam and each want their own mosque. E.g the mosques local to us are not of the sect our family belong to. We can still go to them, my husband goes to them because he is lazy and cant be bothered to drive further to the mosque of our own sect. My dad prefers to go our own which is further. There was recent talk of our community building a mosque closer to where we live so many of us wouldn’t have to travel so much. I dont think its about a takeover its just convenience. As for churches being ripped down by muslims in history – i cant really answer to that, history is as it is. Lots of atrocities have occurred. Mostly motivated by a greed for power and control rather than a specific religious idealogy. Isis militants, the ones at the top, all have power and politics motivating them rather than a specific verse of the quran. I honestly dont believe most muslims in uk are that interested in this stuff. We just want to live our lives as conveniently as possible. Doesnt everyone?

  20. People come to this country for a better standard of living. Better job, better hygiene, medical care, security, education, prospects for your children etc… Nothing to do with religion. The west does offer a better standard of life no doubt. Does that make it ideologically and morally superior? No! I dont know what the statistics are on percentage of christians in the middle east compared to percentage of muslims in uk so cant say if its disproportionate. Mosques are funded by their own community in the uk, if christians want a mosque in middle east they should be allowed to fund it and make it themselves. No one wants to see their country taken over by another race, but muslims arent taking over the uk, thats the point. Its all media hype and scaremongering. If there is a need for a mosque then it should be built…if theres a need for a church it should be built. Involve yourself in your church more if its important to you. If they were better supported they wouldnt be dwindling in numbers in the uk. Its just supply and demand.

  21. Fed up of this age at which Aisha got married thing. We’re talking about a time where there was no running water, no electricity a different world! Marriage wasnt love and romance roses and valentines gifts! U married ur daughter to a man who would be able to feed her and clothe her and protect her. Life expectance was incredibly short so yes people married very early compared to nowadays and to spouses who you wouldn’t describe as ideal but survival was the key, not a lovey dovey romance! The norm then is not the norm now!

  22. David, this is my response to defend my points but since we’ve been asked to stop feeding you I shall leave it there. To your point about Muhammad I will point you to Paul – one of the men who is generally attributed to bringing Christianity to Europe was a serial murder, was present at and approved of the stoning of Stephen. Matthew (one of the 12) was a tax collector – a profession by all accounts considered the very lowest in society and undoubtedly took a lot of money surplus to what was required for tax from family’s and women and children who could ill afford it just so he could line his own pockets. So no matter how you argue it Jesus himself hung out with very suspicious characters including someone he knew would later betray him to his death. I mentioned David, Jacob and Noah in my previous post as well and highlighted their flaws as well. At the end of the day in spite of his clear flaws Muhammad is no worse than any of the other men I mentioned and all of them were used by God and are known as men of God therefore your argument against Muhammad is deeply flawed.

    As for the puberty point context is very important when looking at any religious text and in this case how it is supposed to be viewed from the perspective of when the piece was written. You have to apply the same contextual rules to all of the text not just little sections, you cannot just cherry-pick to suit your stance. What I mean is that the very context you use to justify the bible you have to then adjust to the context of the Quran. To give another example where the context is often misplaced is the bit where it appears that Jesus approved of slavery however the context behind it was that it was culturally common place for you to sell yourself if you could not afford to pay back your debts as a way of paying that debt. At the of the agreed time or 7 years (whichever came first) the slave was freed unless the slave chose to stay with their master and “bond” with them for life. So their were strict rules within the culture on what was acceptable and what wasn’t. I think I have made my point about context.

    Finally if you loathe Islam then by extension you loathe everything about it from what it teaches to its morality and the core beliefs it entails. Therefore by natural extension anyone who believes these things (ie Muslims) and live out that belief must be loathsome. Now you have said you do not dislike Muslims who don’t try to kill you/harm you etc yet that does not fit in with your narrative of Islam as there must be different levels, just as there is with Christianity, meaning you are being entirely inconsistent in how you view Muslims and on that note I rest my case. I hope you take on board what I and others here have said and I bid you good night.

  23. A lot of the first generation migrants were grateful for the opportunity they had here. Which is why they put up with rubbish working conditions in factories, worked long shifts etc. even now polish, romanian etc. take on the crap jobs just to have a chance to stay here. But third generation migrants like myself dont feel like we still ‘owe’ this country a favour. Im grateful i was born here and not a war torn country elsewhere but why would i feel any more grateful than my colleagues at work who are of the indigenous population? We worked equally hard to get our jobs and pay our taxes and our parents did the same. Im glad this country lets people practice their religions as they wish, and thats what makes it so unique and a fantastic country, you should be proud to live in such a free country! Instead of being bitter about the lack of churches half way across the world and letting all this hate-mongering against muslims get to your heart. I wanted to point out that the average muslim in the uk just wants to get on with their life, has the same dreams and aspirations as ‘normal’ people – buy a dream house/car, for me its getting my kid to eat her fruit and veg! The britainfirst page feeds such a biased view of muslims and just reads too much into history of the prophet and verses of the quran that the followers think all muslims are like that and cant possibly be same as us. I dont think they realise they are being brainwashed. I hope that answers the original question in this blog and is my last comment on here.

  24. David, clearly you have failed to understand my fundamental point that no matter what Muhammad taught he was no less despicable in his actions than any of the men I listed, basically what you are telling me is is oh he was an awful person. You might as well tell me that Hitler was an awful person – durh! So were all the people I mentioned, even David who tried very hard to live up to God’s standard. You cannot deny that God has used Muhammad for good in spite of his mislead teachings (I’d rather think he was misguided rather deliberately and wilfully leading people away from the light). Are you trying to deny that Noah was a drunk or that David was an adulterer and a murderer? These men in spite of this were used by God as you kindly point out. My facts about the characters mentioned come directly from the bible and can be seen in their story and referenced throughout the New Testament.

    To say that the Old testament is for the Jews and the New testament is for Christians is fundamentally flawed and dangerous to say the least. Why do you think Old testament scripture is found through out the New testament? For us to go, oh that’s not relevant any more? What do you think Ephesians 6 was talking about when it speaks of the sword of the Spirit – that is the word of God? Because it was referring to scripture – the God breathed, inspired word. That is all of God’s word not just some of, yes the New testament is important and holds answers but the Old testament confirms and foretells the New. In other words the Old testament is just as important to know and to read as the New. Many of the Psalms deeply impact many Christians and in fact non-Christians alike. Some of the key scriptures that have recurred in my life have been Old testament and hold as much weight as the New testament scriptures. But as stated there is plenty of New testament evidence that the Old testament should and in fact cannot just be forgotten and ignored like it didn’t happen. Anyway I think I have made my point here.

    As for my facts about slavery Deuteronomy 15 v 12 is where I got the release your slaves after 7 years from and the New testament is peppered with comments about treating slaves as you would a servant. This comes back to context and the importance of the point that at that point history in that culture slavery was seen and treated in a very different light. In other words had Jesus been alive on Earth (for he is still alive in Heaven, well there is a lot of debate about his precise location but that’s not the point at all) he would not have said the same thing about slavery – in fact he probably wouldn’t have brought it up at all or in the case of human trafficking spoken against it.

    As for your cherry-picking accusation I have done no such thing, I have taken the relevant parts of what I have been talking about and then put them into the context of the time they were written, which any good scholar will tell you you need to do when looking at any piece of factual writing, within the context of my argument. Anyway I feel like you are just baiting me. Sorry EBF I will leave it there.

  25. David, in my sleep deprived state I’m not even sure we are disagreeing any more. All those names you purported, whilst many of them would by most be considered perfect or damn near perfect I am sure most of them admitted they were anything but and were flawed humans just like anyone else. As for myself I have my own unique specialness of flawedness that I somehow manage to live out. I have a deeply ingrained belief in the better side of humanity and believe that it is always better to judge innocence until proven otherwise and all that. Basically I try to see the good in humanity even though half the time I struggle to see the good in myself – which could explain a few things. But I digress. Being a Christian isn’t about having it all together and anyone telling you otherwise is lying and leading you astray. If I am being honest I have been really struggling this year and it has been Britain First and EBF that has kept my core convictions about God alive and I’m nowhere near the end of the tunnel. I have to say these types of discussions does help to bring out the spirit.

    My username actually spawns from the first board I actually joined and stems from the combination of grizzly bear and vampire. I liked it so much that it has kind of become my on-line persona though I’m not using it quite so much at the moment. As for my name I chose to remain anonymous on this site for various reasons and I choose to keep it that way should I start to regularly blog again. Ultimately at the end of the day any Christian view has to come from a place of love and that is distinctly lacking on the internet. Without love we are nothing, love is the source from which our faith comes from, it is what binds us together and why we have salvation. It is over used but John 3 v 16 really does say it all. Anyway sorry EBF we’ve been spamming your blog with our disagreement.

  26. It’s hard to get a consensus on what do they believe and why people support them. I’m sure they all have their own reasons, albeit similar to one another. My theory is that the majority get behind BF because they post things which “justify” their views. Whether or not they know the truth is probably irrelevant; I’m sure we’ve all noted that when you correct them, chances are they won’t respond. They are blissfully ignorant.

    Exposing them to the truth leads to a cognitive dissonance within them, so I guess their defence mechanism is the equivalent of putting their fingers in their ears and shouting, “LALALALALA”. Examples are when they resort to calling us “looney lefties”, and what have you, as they they think it negates anything we have to say. So yeah, I think a lot of them are privy to being fed lies but their hatred enables them to twist them into what they think is a truth in order to justify their vile opinions.

    • Terry,my comment has nothing to do with left-right wing but everything to do with division. The most militant protestors against BF are the generally accepted extremely rowdy and unpleasant UAF,often led by such as Wee Georgie Galloway, far-left Labour politicians and students who should no better because they very rarely know what the UAF stands for. For me, anyway, their clashes and the nastiness all round representing the very worst of both “wings” has reminded me in a minor way of the riots in Egypt before President Fatah al Sisi chucked out the Muslim Brotherhood. I hope so much that we do not see in Britain the scenes which have regularly created violent “protests” in Paris as those. after the Charlie Hebdo tragedy.
