Theresa May said recent events in Paris are a reminder of the terror threat faced by the UK
18 January 2014
Theresa May has insisted efforts to wipe out anti-Semitism in the UK must be redoubled, amid safety fears among the Jewish community.
The Home Secretary said she never thought she would see the day when Jews living in Britain would say they were fearful of remaining in the country.
Speaking at an event to commemorate the Jewish people who died during the terror attacks in France, Mrs May said: “The dreadful events in Paris are a reminder of the serious terrorist threat that we face.
“The attack on a Jewish supermarket, where four people were killed, is a chilling reminder of anti-Semitism, not just in France but the recent anti-Semitic prejudice that we sadly have seen in this country.
“I know that many Jewish people in this country are feeling vulnerable and fearful and you’re saying that you’re anxious for your families, for your children and yourselves.
“I never thought I would see the day when members of the Jewish community in the United Kingdom would say they were fearful of remaining here in the United Kingdom.
“And that means we must all redouble our efforts to wipe out anti-Semitism here in the United Kingdom.”
Mrs May said Britain would not be Britain without its Jews, Muslims, Sikhs, Hindus, Christians and people of other faiths.
She told the event in London: “In Europe, of course, we have seen large numbers of Jewish people emigrate and others are questioning their future.
“There have been other attacks as well, the like of which we never thought we’d see again in Europe – in Brussels, of course, where four people were shot and killed at a Jewish museum and in Toulouse, where three children and a teacher were murdered at a Jewish school.
“So I want to say this: Jewish people have long been an important and integral part of this country, we cherish the contribution you make, not just in the past but today and every day.
“Following those attacks in Paris we saw a tremendous expression of unity as people came together in solidarity with the victims of France, people in countries all over the world repeating ‘Je suis Charlie’, ‘Je suis Ahmed’, ‘Je suis juif’.
“But the most important quote I heard I think was from French prime minister Manuel Valls, who said: ‘If 100,000 Jews leave, France will no longer be French, the French Republic will be judged a failure.’
“It is a sentiment I well understand, one that holds true for Britain.
“Without its Jews, Britain would not be Britain, just as without its Muslims, Britain would not be Britain – without its Sikhs, Hindus, Christians and people of other faiths, Britain would not be Britain.”
Not only Jews but everyone in Britain is entitled to the protection of our laws. But Mrs May singles out Jews in particular for a reason. She is right to do so, though she does not explain what that reason is.
Perhaps I can help her here. Jews are particularly at risk, not from anti-Semitism as she speciously asserts, but from jihadist terrorists. Jews are not at risk from any so-called far-right groups or individuals, nor from the adherents of any religion other than Islam. How many ‘militant’ or ‘radical’ Christians, Buddhists, Sikhs, Hindus or Zoroastrians stalk the streets with murder in their hearts?
Jews are very much at risk, however, from jihadist terrorists. Why? Because politicians like Mrs May and her Lib-Lab-Con colleagues and predecessors have: allowed and encouraged the mass immigration of Muslims for decades; assured the immigrants that the English must fit in with their ways rather than the other way round; turned a blind eye to both the sexual jihad waged by Muslim rape gangs against thousands of vulnerable English children and the incitement to violence preached in many mosques; and supported the US-led invasion and occupation of Muslim countries such as Afghanistan and Iraq.
This combination of appeasement of Muslims in Britain and belligerency towards them in their countries of ethnic origin has created the conditions for the perfect storm now gathering. Weakness, even if only apparent, often invites aggression. And Lib-Lab-Con have been so very weak in their dealings with Muslims in Britain. If Mrs May never thought she would see the day when Jews would be fearful of remaining in Britain, then she must be remarkably myopic even by the standards of Establishment politicians.
The multiculti project of the ‘rainbow nation’, which has been imposed upon the English and to a lesser degree the Scots and Welsh, is blowing up in the faces of those who have been its most zealous proponents. I refer, of course, to the Establishment politicians of Lib-Lab-Con, UKIP, the SNP, the Greens, etc. This abortive project has placed us all in danger, though currently Jews more than most. There is a saying among Muslims, ‘first comes Saturday, then Sunday’. Thanks to Mrs May and the other pro-immigration ‘diversity’ extremists our rights and freedoms, lives and property are all increasingly at risk.
I don’t know whether Mrs May is, or regards herself as, English. Like her Lib-Lab-Con colleagues she never seems to mention us English. But her assertion that Britain would not be Britain without its ethno-religious minorities is both demonstrably false and a gross insult to the English.
Our kingdom was a highly successful trading nation by the late fourteenth century, long before the first of those ethno-religious minorities was, for a second time, permitted to settle here in small numbers. In the late eighteenth century, through the genius and industry of us English, Scots and Welsh, Britain became the first industrialized country in the world. And from 1948, the fact that Britain was an advanced industrial society was the magnet that attracted immigrants from the West Indies, Africa and Asia.
So, Mrs May: if every immigrant were to leave Britain tomorrow, Britain would still be Britain. In fact, it would be more Britain than it has been for a very long time. Among the many positive consequences would be a sharp decline in the number of murders, rapes and other serious crimes committed and a return to an unarmed police force.
As for M Valls, he should remember that constitutions, like politicians, may come and go but the nation lives on.
Urgent steps must be taken to curb the unwelcome and growing influence of Islam upon our society. Lib-Lab-Con, UKIP, etc, are too wishy-washy to undertake the necessary measures. A grovelling letter from the Communities secretary to imams merely highlights the cowardice of Lib-Lab-Con in the face of the threat of jihadist terrorism.
Patria is the one and only party with both the courage and the intelligence to safeguard our people effectively.
The measures that need to be taken urgently include: ending all further immigration by Muslims; rounding up and deporting the estimated three million illegal immigrants in the country, as well as all foreign criminals, jihadist ‘fighters’, hate-preaching imams, bogus asylum seekers and overstayers; strengthening our border controls to make them fit for purpose; banning the commissioning of any more mosques; banning the wearing of the burqa and similar garb in public; banning halal slaughter; restoring to our police and armed forces the strength they need to defend us in our homeland; and restoring capital punishment for murder and treason.
To save the country for your grandchildren: Vote Patria on 7 May!
