Opinion – The Conservative Party should be worried about its long-term prospects – Norman Tebbit – Telegraph – John Gelmini

I agree with Dr Alf, the fight for the Tory succession needs to be brought forward but Lord Tebbit is wrong to suggest that it is getting harder to work out who a Conservative is.

Conservatives have always been people who believed in hard work, low taxes, strong law and order, Judeo-Christian values, traditional marriage, schools that inculcated pride, self-discipline and self-organisation, personal responsibility and a sense of patriotism, commonsense and civic pride.

The recent attempts to pander to gay people and vociferous minorities, appease Muslims who do not share these values to the extent that a minority are prepared to wage war against us are misguided and stupid. The failure to confront perversions like Sharia Law, the pressure for “gay marriage” and now American style cohabitation agreements and the failure to invest in dredging and proper infrastructure here as opposed to the largesse of unaffordable foreign aid are further examples of stupidity. These, when combined with wasted money on wind farms, the appeasement of mediaeval rulers in the Gulf who fund terrorism and dangerous Wahabi movements across the globe, the running down of our armed forces to a cypher with no more power than the Papal Guard is gross stupidity.

Stupidity is, however, not to be equated with Conservatism but with the antics of particular Conservatives who have forgotten what the word means and those in the shadows who tell them what to do and ought to know better.

Donald Trump in America is right to highlight competence as the issue there and someone here, who is not stupid should do the same here in the Conservative Party.

This country is in a state of drift and torpor and a state of entitlement which it does not deserve and has failed to earn.

It needs to be shocked out of this state and put into one of implacable resolve to put matters to rights quickly. Out of 70 million people a Conservative as opposed to the sandal wearing Liberal Democrats, the backstabbing Hilary Benn and the Dave Spart throwbacks under Corbyn, should step forward to deliver this message.

Opinion – America’s embrace of Islamophobia is new – but not surprising | Rula Jebreal | Comment is free | The Guardian – John Gelmini

The Guardian’s Rula Jebreal in this article, brought to us by Dr Alf, should explain how certain verses in the Koran are compatible with Western values and how Sharia law, is compatible with Judeo-Christian ethics, which is the foundation of English Common Law, which is in turn the foundation of all American law Constitution.

Proponents of Islam pretend that it is a peaceful religion, that Muslims are “misunderstood” and that only a tiny minority are radicalised. They play down that Islam is a potent political force. The reality is that Islam is against the values of the Guardian newspaper itself, which favours more liberalised divorce laws, gay marriage and the rights of woman.

Further evidence for this can be found in the BBC 2015 survey of Muslims, which found that 11% favoured Muslims fighting against the West, 20% believe that Western liberal democracy cannot ever be compatible with Islam, 11% feel that organisations which publish images of the Prophet Mohamed deserve to be attacked.

Rula Jebreal and Muslim apologists have nothing to say about the consequences of political Islam, so her article should be disregarded as the self-serving nonsense that it is.

Opinion in America is hardening against Muslims because they, like me, understand all too well that this religion, as actually practiced, is increasingly incompatable with the Western way of life and that too many of it’s adherents are political radicalisers, who need to be challenged.

Moderate Muslims need to be much bolder.
