Eretz Israel is our unforgettable historic homeland...The Jews who will it shall achieve their State...And whatever we attempt there for our own benefit will redound mightily and beneficially to the good of all mankind. (Theodor Herzl, DerJudenstaat, 1896)

We offer peace and amity to all the neighbouring states and their peoples, and invite them to cooperate with the independent Jewish nation for the common good of all. The State of Israel is ready to contribute its full share to the peaceful progress and development of the Middle East.
(From Proclamation of the State of Israel, 5 Iyar 5708; 14 May 1948)

With a liberal democratic political system operating under the rule of law, a flourishing market economy producing technological innovation to the benefit of the wider world, and a population as educated and cultured as anywhere in Europe or North America, Israel is a normal Western country with a right to be treated as such in the community of nations.... For the global jihad, Israel may be the first objective. But it will not be the last. (Friends of Israel Initiative)

"This Is The Dog We Want ... To Kill": Scenes From A Foreign Country

In the New English Review there is a disturbing and needless to say entirely politically incorrect article, lavishly illustrated, concerning the encroachment of Sharia Law and No Go zones for non-Muslims in the East End of London, the threats against unveiled women of other religions and shops that employ them, the contempt for Jews and Christians, and the violence and vandalism that goes largely unreported:

"I am of an old East End family. We define the East End as the three old boroughs of Bethnal Green, Stepney and Poplar which since 1965 make up the current London Borough of Tower Hamlets, plus that area of Shoreditch around Shoreditch Church which since 1965 is part of the London Borough of Hackney. Although my mother was born in Hoxton (which is adjacent to, but not part of, the East End) where my grandfather had a market stall, her parents were born in Bethnal Green as were all of my father’s family. My cousins and I have traced many lines of our families back to the 18thcentury. We span 4 centuries and 10 generations in the area, at least. Welcome to my ancestoral homeland.
The East End encompassed London docks which meant that people have always arrived from all over the world and many settled nearby. Just in the relatively small circle of my own family history, through blood, marriage, kinship or family friendship I know of Irish, Welsh, Italian, Scottish, Jewish, Polish and Russian, French Huguenot, Indian, West Indian and Yorkshire. Every group that came to the East End brought their own customs. The Huguenot influence can be seen in our love of bright colours of clothing and the flowers of our little gardens, even if the only garden available was a yard or a veranda. The Jewish influence is famous and goes far beyond the food and the delicatessens (and bread). Limehouse was Chinatown for many years although it is now in Gerrard Street W1. They integrated while giving us the best of their culture. Until recent years....
There are very few Jews left in the East End; most have moved into the general East End diaspora in Essex. As I said above a Jewish councillor is regularly abused, even during council meetings. The East London Mosque would love to get its hands on the land occupied by the Great Fieldgate Street Synagogue.
In 2008 Jewish tourists on a walking tour of the historic East End were pelted with stones and abuse by ‘Asian Youths’ with a ‘narrow religious view’. This made the national press but I gather that it was not an isolated incident.
In 2005 the then MP, black and Jewish Oona King was attending a memorial service to commemorate 60 years since the Hughes Mansions Disaster in Bethnal Green, when 134 people, almost all Jewish, were killed by the last V2 missile to land on London. ‘Youths’ pelted her and mourners with eggs and rotten vegetables.
To quote one of the ‘youth’ “We all hate her. She comes here with her Jewish friends who are killing our people and then they come to our back yards. It is out of order. What do they expect?"
The ‘youth’ were believed at the time to be supporters of George Galloway who was later elected MP for the constituency, saying after the election that he owes more(of his election) to the Islamic Forum of Europe ‘than it would be wise to admit’.
In 2009 following Israeli action in Gaza a petrol bomb was hurled at Starbucks in Whitechapel and Tesco’s stores and delivery vans were attacked. “Kill Jews” was daubed on a children’s playground at the Chicksand estate....
Gary Smith, Head of Religious Studies at my cousin’s old school, Central Foundation Girls' School in Bow, was attacked by four Muslim men, (already under surveillance suspected of a terrorism plot) because 'He's mocking Islam and he’s putting doubts in people's minds...How can somebody take a job to teach Islam when they’re not even a Muslim themselves? . . . This is the dog we want to hit, to strike, to kill.
In 2008 Canon Ainsworth of St Georges in the East Shadwell was beaten seriously enough to merit time in hospital after he asked some ‘Asian youth’ to behave.
The church had previously been targeted when a brick smashed a window during a service. Allan Ramanoop, a member of the parochial church council, said: “On one occasion, youths shouted: ‘This should not be a church, this should be a mosque, you should not be here. The youths are anti-Christian. It’s terrible what they have done to Canon Ainsworth’.
The boy convicted walked free; the prosecution decided that the attack was not racially or religiously motivated and decided that a beating which put a man in hospital for 12 days was mere ABH (assault occasioning actual bodily harm) instead of the more serious GBH (grievous bodily harm).
This summer ‘youths’ put parents and children in fear at a toddlers sports day at the Montessori nursery at St George’s...."
 Read it all:


  1. So why has the EDL little ramble around Tower Hamlets this weekend been banned by the home secretary ?

  2. I think we can agree that Britain will soon see Muslim autonomous regions which the Muslims themselves will of course protest because it keeps them from spreading the Ummah across Britain. From that, we will see Britain fall to universal Islam. It may not immediately be fundamentalist in the mode of the Muslim Brotherhood, but it eventually will be. That's the way all radical revolutions operate. The 'liberals' win first then the fascists kill them off and take charge. Britain is finished and I, a 50-something year old, will live to see it.

  3. If I was a British school leaver I'd look at the list of occupations most needed in Australia under the points system. I'd then endeavour to qualify for one of those trades (hairdressing appeals!) and off I'd go. There are extra-mural university courses for adults there that I could pursue later if I wanted to. I'd make getting out of Britain my top priority.

  4. Can't not help but agree with you Daphne.

    I read this article elsewhere and was sick to the pit of my stomach.

    The Great Fieldgate Street Synagogue mentioned in the article, closed its doors a couple of years back. It is surrounded on 3 sides by the dreadful East End Mosque. Reportedly the most radicalised in the whole of Europe.It's one of the oldest in London. This is where I grew up. The east End was the heart and soul of the British Jewish Community.

    I lived no more than a 3 minute walk from it. My grandmother took us there on religious festivals

    The Islamisation of London

  5. I knew it would upset you, Shirlee. It upset me, and I hardly know the East End.
    I wonder what they make of having a clock in that neck of the woods that memorialises a Jew who was a mere female to boot, i.e. Minnie Lansbury (one of my very first blogposts concerned her).

  6. Empress Trudy is a Yankee who would love to see the redcoats fall. Trudy, you are giving aid and comfort to the enemy. You have no faith in God, just a desire to see the UK fall. If I am wrong, then pray for us instead of doing us down.
