Multiculturalism - (never the twain shall meet*)

"Britons seem to have given up on assimilating their Muslim population, with many British elites patting themselves on the back for their tolerance and multiculturalism."
Linda Chavez
"What 'multiculturalism' boils down to is that you can praise any culture in the world except Western culture - and you cannot blame any culture in the world except Western culture."
Thomas Sowell**
Katherine Berbalsingh has an article on Telegraph Blogs about the Tottenham 'riots' and which is required reading for all politicians. The article is headlined: "These riots were about race. Why ignore the fact?".

When two (or more) cultures, each with their own 'society', religion and 'mores' are mixed, there can only result segregation and racial tension. Is our memory so short that we have forgotten Brixton or Broadwater Farm?

Not that I am aware that Muslims were part of the 'mob' in Tottenham, but when you have one particular section of society that reads in their 'holy book' (Qur'an)
"O unbelievers, I serve not what you serve and you are not serving what I serve, nor am I serving what you have served, neither are you serving what I serve. To you your religion, and to me my religion!"
is it any wonder that multiculturalism is doomed to failure?

As I write, reports are appearing on Twitter of 'trouble' in Enfield and Brixton - what was it that Enoch Powell prophesied?

* Never the twain shall meet - generally accepted as meaning: "two things which are so different as to have no opportunity to unite".

** For those readers unacquainted with Thomas Sowell, may I refer you to a previous post of mine?

The sooner all muslims are expelled from our country the better it will be for us indigenous peoples. And if they take the socialists with them, all the better. If Kenya and Uganda can get rid of their muslim trash, then why can't we? What I can't understand is why we were condemned to accept them; why weren't they sent to some other god forsaken place in Asia? White guilt? Perleaze just eff off. They can all die of malnutrition, ethnic differences and racism for all I care.

And this little gem from Hate not Hope about the EDL march in Tower Hamlets

Wonder how they'll tie this into right wing bloggers :D

As I have so often said, "Multicuturalism" is just Apartheid in a new disguise. It is about the same thing - giving minorities power of the resident majority.

jic: Kenya and Uganda are not (yet - but give the EU time!) part of the EU!

As to why do we have to accept them (i) above and (ii) buying votes by Labour?

QM: off to read.........

TGM: Yup, so right - but then I expect nothing but from you :)
