Is Britain Succumbing To Islamic Supremacism?

At Human Events, Robert Spencer provides some anecdotes and observations about his recent visit to the UK to film a new documentary on the Islamisation of Europe. As he says, "What I saw wasn’t shocking, but quite depressing."

Here's a particular part that didn't surprise me at all:

Unrecognized inside the mosques we were able to enter, I was warmly received as a potential convert and laden with books and pamphlets explaining the wonders of Islam -- including, courtesy the Finsbury Park Mosque, a copy of the Koran with illuminating commentary: “The purpose for which the Muslims are required to fight,” we’re told, “is not, as one might think, to compel the unbelievers into embracing Islam.”

Feel better? Don’t. “Rather, its purpose is to put an end to the suzerainty of the unbelievers so that the latter are unable to rule over people. The authority to rule should only be vested in those who follow the Truth Faith; unbelievers who do not follow this True Faith should live in a state of subordination.” So much for liberty and justice for all.

That's from the commentary of Sayyid Abul A'la Maududi (d.1979), who also happens to have been one of the most influential Muslim thinkers of the twentieth century. To read some more of his Islamic wisdom, see here. That Qur'ans containing his commentary are being given out in prominent British mosques should be cause for concern. But it isn't.

Do be sure to read the rest of the article.
