Al-Jabba, or a silly tale from Austria

Al-Jabba, or a silly tale from Austria

First of all, a belated Happy New Year to all of you who might be reading this. To explain my not writing anything for months, I blame a combination of winter writing malaise, real life and there being just so many stories to potentially write about – so many in fact that one ends up not writing anything at all.

2013 begins with a silly story coming from Austria – or rather a group that calls itself The Turkish Cultural Community of Austria (Die Türkische Kulturgemeinde in Österreich) – where toy manufacturer Lego has been accused of “inciting racial hatred and insulting human dignity” (yes, that old chestnut) with its release of a Star Wars series model of Jabba the Hutt’s palace.

Rumble in the Jungle

Rumble in the Jungle

It has been a little while since my last blog – it has been a case of work, work, work and a short break in between where we flitted around Dorset, visited the Automobile Museum at Beaulieu, sidled up to the famous Tiger I at Bovington and dropped in on Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall at River Cottage.

To be honest the news has been so much “same as” that you quickly get bored of it: how many times can you get exasperated with the bunch of clowns running this country, for instance? It is just the same old stories of the same old idiots doing the same old things, and short of rounding them all up and shooting them nothing is going to change any time soon. Oh, and that moron Katie Price aka Jordan, who should be taken to a quiet corner of some dark room and slowly asphyxiated.

The story of this week has been the clearing out by the French authorities of the infamous “jungle” in Calais – and the resulting protests by the organised army of unwashed lefties. Time for a water cannon bath for the lot of them, maybe.

This action is well overdue and a good thing, but one burning question still remains: what is going to happen next? The French Government has said that these people would be invited to request for asylum, but all I can see is them shifting on to another makeshift camp as part of their long-term plan to head this way to the land of milk and honey. The French system is one that cannot easily be milked: we know it, our respective governments know it and the illegal immigrants know it. There is no future for them in France, punkt.

One question that has been bugging me for years however is the fact that the vast majority of the residents of the “jungle” are from Afghanistan. Now don’t get me wrong, but have we – the West – not risked the lives of our soldiers and spent billions in getting rid of the reason why these people would want to flee their homeland? Have we not removed the odious Taliban from power? Have we not spent the last seven years creating a democratic Afghanistan? Well?

This is the conundrum the Government faces: if it has indeed helped to secure a democratic Afghanistan, then there is no longer a refugee issue and anyone from that country should be sent back forthwith. However, if these people are still accepted as refugees, then it is a pretty clear admission that Afghanistan is perhaps not so democratic after all and that the Government and the Western Alliance has failed in their rather expensive mission.

Beyond all this I cannot see what anyone can gain by allowing these people into Britain: more additions to the rising number of unemployed. More people whose cultural values run counter to ours. More opportunities for troublemakers and other interlopers to worm their way into the system. More infernal mosques, and British town centres being transformed into what looks like launching pads for the Saturn V.

Harrow Central Mosque

Is it a Saturn V rocket? erm, nope. It's Harrow Central Mosque

One such monstrosity is the new mosque in the Harrovian district of Wealdstone, almost directly opposite the Civic Centre. How convenient. It’s one thing being allowed to build a structure, it’s quite another to be allowed to construct what can only be described as a complete bloody eyesore. The thing is a blot on the landscape and now dominates that skyline, and things being what they are I wouldn’t be surprised if it one day replaces the famous church spire as Harrow’s great landmark – much as the alien double rocket craft that has been recently approved for launch in the German city of Köln threatens to wipe the historic cathedral from that city’s famous skyline.

Apart from the cute but completely unaffordable hamlet on the Hill, Harrow has never been the prettiest place – Wealdstone in particular has always been a bit of a dump. In what is a rather funny aside, the mosque is partly situated on land that was previously taken up by the small and rather suspect dealership where I bought my first car back in the early 90s. Good old Delray Autos – or Delboy, more like.

The building of this monstrosity can only turn the area into a magnet for troublemakers, as shown by the recent violent clash between a couple of dozen members of the self-styled “English Defence League” and hundreds of Jihadist ne’er do wells who made their way to this otherwise nondescript Middlesex suburb from all parts of the country. It really doesn’t bode well. The one saving grace is that a branch of the Samaritans is located just around the corner for those who might have to put up with the racket.

Probably the wisest words of the week have come from the Anglican Primate of Nigeria, Archbishop Nicholas Okoh: in a candid address in Kent he loudly said what many people are thinking and perhaps fearing – that Muslims are mass-producing babies in order to swamp existing non-Muslim populations.

Many people sitting on the left bank in their ivory towers will argue otherwise, but this is just the sort of thing that threatens to sweep across Europe. A trickle of Afghan refugees followed by a flood, mosque-building projects funded by Saudi fundamentalists, the implementation of Sharia law, and mass-breeding.

It is time to give up on branding all opposition to the rise of militant Islam as “racist” – it has nothing to do with racism and everything to do with protecting the freedom of future generations.
