Women who long to be slaves 114

This is from an article by Jack Doyle at the MailOnline:

The number of Muslim converts in Britain has passed 100,000 …

The figure has almost doubled in ten years – with the average convert now a 27-year-old white woman fed up with British consumerism and immorality.

Whose “consumerism and immorality”? Their own?

Or maybe it’s not so much consumerism and immorality that drives them into the arms of Islam, as an attraction to young Muslim men. If they marry them, maybe they’ll learn in time to speak of “subjugation”, and know all too well what it means.

The numbers, revealed in a study by multi-faith group Faith Matters, have led to claims that the country is undergoing a process of ‘Islamification’.

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.

But the organisation’s report argued that most converts saw their religion as ‘perfectly 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.’

They’re real thinkers, you see. Done their research, understand the ideology of Islam through and through. Found not a trace of immorality in it.

And their schools never taught them that there is anything wrong with Islam, did they? Said nothing about it being incompatible with Britain’s democracy, it’s equal treatment of men and women, its traditional tolerance and freedom?

The report estimated around 5,200 men and women have adopted Islam over the past 12 months, including 1,400 in London. …

The survey … 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’.

What’s slavery compared to the evils of alcohol, sex and shopping?

Fiyaz Mughal, director of Faith Matters, said: ‘Conversion to Islam has been stigmatised by the media and wrongly associated with extremist ideologies and discriminatory cultural practices.’

Conversion to Islam stigmatised by the media? We haven’t noticed much of that.

Islam wrongly associated with extremism and discrimination?

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 terror plots, including the July 7 bombings.

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.

Those were reported by the media. But maybe the converts didn’t research that deeply.
