100,000 Britons convert to Islam in past decade - but where is the survey for those 'leaving' Islam ~ perhaps we don't want to offend

Convert: Lauren Booth the sister-in-law of Prime Minister Tony Blair attracted a lot of publicity when she announced she had adopted the Islamic faith last year
Tony Blair's sister-in-law ~ the new pin up for converts to Islam. She converted in Iran ~ one has to wonder whether she expects the Mahdi or 12th Imam to return in the final conflict of conflicts. Or did she join the Muhammad-centric Sunni version!

Shangri-La is on offer ~ and people are buying it. But how many people have become disillusioned with it ~ and abandoned the religion ~ something Muslims are extremely sensitive about ~ but shouldn't we be given the other side.


- More than one in four accepted there was a ‘natural conflict’ between being a devout Muslim and living in the UK.

- Nine out of ten women converts said their change of religion had led to them dressing more conservatively. More than half started wearing a head scarf and five percent said they had worn the burqa.

How long will the offspring of these British converts learn to do like the young do in the Islamic world ~ where pre-marital sex is anal ~ as a way to ensure [vaginal] virginity is secured until marriage!! This is the norm in the Islamic world. A Muslim girl must pass a virginity test ~ carried out by a medical doctor ~ and they make sure they do. [Not so dumb!]

If the aim is to trash western society ~ then we should fully understand theirs.

And once the Muslim woman is married ~ often to a first or second cousin ~ she then comes under the complete control of the husband. He decides everything she does and the law in the Islamic world backs his wishes.

To entertain fantasies about a perfect world ~ is one thing - to actually witness or worst ~ to live an extremely restrictive or dumbed down life ~ with limited rights and freedoms ~ at state level ~ is completely another.


It is doubtful that all these people will remain Muslim ~ or strictly adhering Muslims ~ and many will reject it completely.


Cherie Blair's sister says she reads the Koran everyday:


The mother of two now wears a hijab, has given up alcohol and visits a mosque ‘when she can’. She has also stopped eating pork and reads the Koran every day.

But the Koran says to fight the non-believer and then subjugate them ~ how can they honestly tell us that their new found faith means 'peace'? It must be also that they are in for a penny in for a pound and are willing to perpetuate the pretence ~ as many Muslim do ~ with the aim of firstly protecting the image of Islam and for the new converts ~ defending their personal choice.

I think Cherie Blair's sister is a sad case. Islam is not going to give her what she needs ~ on top of converting to Islam she is in serious financial trouble and is getting a divorce.





cicada.gif Proudly you can't eat pork ~ but Muhammad said it was okay to sleep with dead people... as he did... instructions lie in the Hadith 'Intercourse with a dead woman'...


Another oddity of the Prophet's behavior for new converts to defend!!


But if Muhammad was happy ~ that's explanation enough!!

Watch the flies!!




About 5,200 people in UK adopted faith last year alone

The number of Muslim converts in Britain has topped 100,000 for the first time - fuelled by a surge in young white women adopting the Islamic faith.

Just ten years ago the total number of converts across the country stood at just over half that level.

The first detailed study of converts in Britain emerged in a report for Faith Matters, a multi-faith organisation.

It has led to claims the country is undergoing a process of ‘Islamification’.

The report defended converts, saying they largely saw their religion as compatible with living in Britain.

It said: ‘Converts do not represent a devious fifth column determined to undermine the Western way of life - this is a group of normal people united in their adherence to a religion which they, for the most part, see as perfectly compatible with Western life.

‘Converts are generally at ease living in the UK and do not feel that British people are essentially hostile to Islam.’

The report estimated around 5,200 people adopted Islam over the last twelve months, including 1,400 in London alone.

A survey of converts revealed nearly two thirds were women, more than 70 per cent were white and the average age at conversion was just 27.

In 2001 there were an estimated 60,000 Muslim converts in Britain. Since then the country has seen the spread of violent Islamist extremism and a number of terror plots against the country, including the July 7 bombings.

Among those converts who have turned to terror include Nicky Reilly who tried to blow up a restaurant in Bristol with a nail bomb, shoe bomber Richard Reid and July 7 bomber Germaine Lindsay.

The survey of converts revealed nearly two thirds were women, more than 70 per cent were white and the average age at conversion was just 27.

The report said the number of converts sucked into extremism represented a ‘very small minority’, among an otherwise law abiding majority.

THE 'ESCAPE ROUTE' FROM MY FORMER LIFE

One woman who converted to Islam is mother Lynne Ali (below), a 31-year-old former DJ. She decided to adopt the religion when she was 19 - and said she is happy to have found an 'escape route' from her old life.

‘I went to an old friend’s 21st birthday party in a bar,’ she said. ‘I walked in, wearing my hijab and modest clothing, and saw how ­everyone else had so much flesh on display. They were drunk, slurring their words and dancing provocatively.

‘For the first time, I could see my former life with an outsider’s eyes, and I knew I could never go back to that.

‘I am so grateful I found my escape route. This is the real me — I am happy to pray five times a day and take classes at the mosque. I am no longer a slave to a broken society and its expectations.’

The survey, conducted by Kevin Brice, an academic at Swansea University, asked converts for their views on the negative aspects of British culture.

They identified alcohol and drunkenness, a ‘lack of morality and sexual permissiveness’, and ‘unrestrained consumerism’.

Many said they feared that there was a ‘normalisation of immoral behaviour’ among a British public that is becoming less religious in its outlook.

More than one in four accepted there was a ‘natural conflict’ between being a devout Muslim and living in the UK.

Nine out of ten women converts said their change of religion had led to them dressing more conservatively. More than half started wearing a head scarf and five percent said they had worn the burqa.

More than half said they experienced difficulties after converting because of negative attitudes to Islam among members of their family.

Last year Lauren Booth, sister-in-law of former prime minister Tony Blair, attracted widespread publicity when she announced last year that she had converted to Islam.

Miss Booth, who is Cherie Blair’s half sister, adopted her new faith after what she described as a ‘holy experience’ in Iran.

The mother of two now wears a hijab, has given up alcohol and visits a mosque ‘when she can’. She has also stopped eating pork and reads the Koran every day.

Fiyaz Mughal, director of Faith Matters said: ‘New Muslims are not a security threat nor are they a population that should be at the mercy of those within Muslim communities who want to push obsolete and unethical cultural practices.’

‘Conversion to Islam has been stigmatised by the media and wrongly associated with extremist ideologies and discriminatory cultural practices.

‘Converts have an important role to play in supporting community cohesion, and it is vital that mosques can support them to encourage greater understanding amongst non-Muslims.’

Terrible reality ~ if only Muslims could have selected their religion themselves ~ then they would have had a chance to revue Muhammad's behavior ~ for example, he called for rape.

Even when his men did not want to go through with it ~ he conjured a Koranic verse to order them to ~ rape captive non-Muslim women in front of their husbands. [Hadith]

Given the choice ~ most Muslims would have rejected Muhammad because of his behavior.

But most Muslims were brought to Islam by force or via slavery ~ and because there was so much fear surrounding criticism of him ~ it was safer to create a fantasy around this guy ~ and of course built a religion where poetry and everything was added on to it. [Including aspects of Christianity and Judaism ~ to the old Arabian Kaaba religion]

But before Muhammad picked up the sword he had no more than 100 followers ~ when he died there were some 35,000 mostly forced converts ~ look what the sword got him ~ but it still cannot cover ~ the fact that ~ was he ever deserving of it?

Promising to cut a man's head off ~ if he did not answer positively to his claim to Prophethood ~ is not a sign of strength ~ it is a sign of weakens and disbelief.

Like cheating. Theft. [What Jesus earned he took. People came to Jesus willingly.]

That is why you have the conflicting verses in the Koran ~ the moderate verses ~ versus the violent verses which cancel the moderate ~ where they come into conflict ~ because Muhammad was in conflict ~ with himself.

And so deluded that he believed that sleeping with the dead was acceptable.

The world will get other this ~ to do this Islam must be humbled. It will be dismantled ~ and whatever beauty you see in ~ shall be viewed with humility ~ if not in a museum.

if there are so many Muslims who embrace Islam by force, why would this religion last for so long? people tend to stay away from ideology imposed on them. This coercion will make them feel uncomfortable. so, over time they will stay away from this ideology. there's a Quranic verse saying that Muslims cannot force anyone to embrace Islam. what muslims can do is da'wah, the delivery of good deeds and concept of Islam.

terrorist who claimed that they they are actually doing something based on the qur'an and hadits are all wrong. killing people in a peace country is strongly forbidden in Islam. there could be some qur'anic verse which contain sadistic words like slaughter, etc. u must know that these verses were given to Muhammad when he was preparing for or in the middle of a war. ancient war was very cruel because the weapons used were swords. the fastest way to kill enemies is to slaughter them. the Roman, Greek, European, etc also did the same thing when they fight.

about the conflicting verse in the qur'an, they're not actually conflicting but there're actually adjustable to a specific condition. those who are qualified to make judgments based on the qur'anic verse and hadits are called mufassir. since my i'm not qualified i won'n talk to much about it.

thanks..

Now that these morons "converted" they can start acting like barbarians.

The Qur'an is being used as toilet paper in Pakistan. How hypocritical these barbarians are. When someone burns the Qur'an all hell breaks loose. When the Qur'an is mi-interpreted in terms Muslims do "not like", all hell breaks loose! Now we have proof that they are using the Qur'an to wipe their own as_es!
