Is Britain Being Conquered From the Inside?


Is Britain Being Conquered From the Inside?

Britain has already been invaded by a dangerous enemy, and most Britons don’t even realize it—yet.

In Scotland, exceeding the speed limit by more than 30 mph is generally an infraction penalized by the loss of one’s license. Except, it would seem, if you are a polygamous Muslim husband dashing between homes in an effort to service more than one wife.

That exact scenario occurred earlier this year when a Scottish judge allowed a Muslim husband to retain his license after he was booked for driving 64 mph in a 30 mph zone. “He has one wife in Motherwell and another in Glasgow and sleeps with one one night and stays with the other the next on an alternate basis,” argued Mohammed Anwar’s lawyer. “Without his driving license, he would be unable to do this on a regular basis.”

This episode is a measure of the bloodless cultural and legal invasion by the armies of Islam into British society and Britain’s judicial system.

Never mind the judge’s faulty logic that led to his sanctioning of breaking one law in order to break another. The larger question is: What does a British judge’s acceptance of the Muslim practice of polygamy—even when it leads to the breaking of British law—say about the extent of Islam’s incursion into Britain?

Appeasing Muslims and condoning—even embracing—Islamic laws and culture is today effectively a function of the British judicial system and government!

Islamic affairs expert Daniel Pipes remarked on this on Sunday: “Monogamy, this ruling suggests, long a foundation of Western civilization, is silently eroding under the challenge of Islamic law. Should current trends continue, polygamy could soon be commonplace” (emphasis mine throughout). Pipes is not exaggerating: The British government now condones the primarily Muslim practice of polygamy. British welfare laws, for example, allow for husbands to collect state handouts for each wife!

Britain’s allowance of polygamy, and this devious attack on the Judeo-Christian institution of monogamy, is merely the tip of the iceberg. To one degree or another, virtually all the foundational pillars and primary responsibilities of the British government—equal rights, the rule of law, education, national security—have been “silently eroded” by the rising tide of Islamification!

“Islamic law has been officially adopted in Britain,” proclaimed London’s Sunday Times in September. “The government has quietly sanctioned the powers for sharia judges to rule on cases ranging from divorce and financial disputes to those involving domestic violence.” Under the 1996 Arbitration Act, these state-backed British sharia courts—of which there are many across Britain—carry the force of law so long as both parties in the dispute agree to give them power to rule on their case.

Britain has Jewish tribunals that operate under the same act, yet they recognize the primacy of English law and operate wholly within it. By contrast, Islam recognizes no higher authority than sharia law. Britain’s sharia courts often do not recognize the primacy of English law or many of the principles it is founded on, which means their rulings often differ from those that would be made under British law.

Britain’s judicial system was founded on the principle of one law for all, and was created to limit the ability of one segment of the population to lord itself over the rest of society by operating under its own judicial system. One law for all is the very basis of legal and social justice and is the glue that binds a society together,” wrote Melanie Phillips. “Law is the expression of a society’s cultural identity. If there is no one law, there is no one national identity and therefore no society but instead a set of warring fiefdoms with their own separate jurisdictions.”

Throughout history, Britain’s legal system has been among the most successful in the world. It has been at the vanguard of the judicial maturation of Western democracies. That success has in large part been a result of the determination of the British to use law as a national equalizer and unifier.

If you know anything about sharia law, you know it is incompatible with English law, especially regarding equality and human rights. By facilitating the development of what Phillips calls “de facto parallel legal systems,” the British government is destroying its own governing principle of one law for all, and essentially authorizing the development of a separate society of people—complete with custom legal system—inside Britain! Thus it is creating division and disunity within British society.

Consider further: Because these sharia courts are allowed by British law, there rulings are enforceable through county courts and Britain’s High Court. That means Islamic judges can hear cases and deliver rulings based on sharia, and then expect the British government, at the cost of British taxpayers, to uphold their decisions!


Islam’s penetration of other facets of British society is just as deep. Muslim control over some communities in Britain, for example, is so great that some suburbs have been labeled “no go” areas for those of a different race and religion. Earlier this year, the bishop of Rochester, Michael Nazir-Ali, warned publicly of the danger posed by these extreme Muslim communities. Instead of setting off alarm bells across Britain, Mr. Nazir was lambasted by the media and government for being Islamaphobic!

Meanwhile, other influential British figures, such as Dr. Rowan Williams, the archbishop of Canterbury, and Stephen Hockman, qc and former chairman of the Bar Council, have said the emergence of sharia law in Britain is inevitable and poses few problems for Britain.

The armies of Islam have also invaded the British educational system.

Take Greenwood Junior School, for example, whose administration last week sent a letter home to parents informing them that the school had “canceled its Christmas performances because they got in the way of the Muslim children celebrating Eid,” a three-day Muslim festival during which Muslim children do not attend school (, December 4). Also last week, the Daily Mailreported that a movement was afoot to make Muslim prayer rooms, and even facilities for pre-prayer washing rituals, available to Muslim students in every Catholic school in Britain.

Islamic ideology is invading—and in many cases being invited to invadeeducational institutions across Britain, from kindergartens to universities. Islamic-tolerant curricula are being written and new rules are being created to facilitate Muslim students, while British history and Christian-based ideology—which liberal administrators believe offends Muslims—is being eradicated.

Islam’s incursion into British banking and finance is just as furious. In recent years, London has forged itself into a largely sharia-compliant financial hub in an attempt to woo cash-rich Muslims—despite the fact, as Melanie Phillips has noted, that “this provides a cover for terrorist financing and is a prime instrument for forcing the ever-wider spread of Islamic practices among Muslims.”

Of course, the British government believes that by gutting itself to accommodate Islam it is undermining radical Islam’s efforts to stir up resentment inside Britain, appeasing moderate Muslims, and reducing the potential for conflict with Muslims in general. But there’s no evidence to suggest this is happening. Actually, plenty of evidence suggests exactly the opposite. The government’s policies of political correctness, tolerance and appeasement are emboldening the armies of Islam and adding momentum to their cultural and judicial invasion!

In September, not long after the story about these sharia courts hit the news, the Sun newspaper released a video of radical clerics preaching about Islam’s plans to take over Britain. “It may be by pure conversion that Britain will become an Islamic state,” declared Anjem Choudary, right-hand man of exiled preacher Omar Bakri Mohammed. “We may never need to conquer it from the outside.”

In January 2007, Britain’s Channel 4 broadcasted a shocking documentary, filmed covertly, on Islamic activity in mosques throughout England. In the documentary, one Saudi-trained imam called for British Muslims to “dismantle democracy'’ by “living as a state within a state” until they are “strong enough to take it over.”

Isn’t the British government, by accommodating the formation of parallel legal systems, inviting Islam’s admittedly subversive quest to operate as a “state within a state”?

After the program aired, the government leaped into action, but not how you might think. “The West Midlands Police lodged criminal charges,” wrote Brett Mason, “not against the extremist imams but against the TV network. Responding to a complaint by the Muslim Association of Britain, the police accused Channel 4 of inciting racial hatred by means of an ostensibly distorted documentary that demonized Islam.” Something is desperately wrong when, instead of investigating and penalizing subversive Muslim preachers caught on camera gunning for the destruction of Britain, British authorities attempt to reprimand the TV station responsible for exposing the truth.

Logic and sanity have been replaced by the politically correct tenets of “tolerance” and “multiculturalism” in the minds of many of Britain’s leaders!

Recently, the Center for Social Cohesion revealed that among young Muslims in Britain, nearly one third believe that killing in the name of religion is right; 40 percent say they support the introduction of sharia law into Britain; nearly 25 percent do not think men and women are equal in the eyes of Allah; one third don’t think or don’t know whether Islam is compatible with Western democracy; and one third say they favor the establishment of a global Islamic caliphate.

Other facts and figures indicate, as Phillips put it recently, that Britain “now harbors the most developed infrastructure of Islamist terrorism and extremism in the Western world.”

Make no mistake: Islam is invading Britain from the inside out!

Yet despite Islam’s burgeoning armies and the admirable clarion cries of commentators like Melanie Philips, too few Britons, particularly in the British establishment, grasp the full extent of this invasion. Too many have become intoxicated on the syrupy elixirs of political correctness, tolerance, appeasement and multiculturalism, and are failing to see the enemy growing in their midst.

This is about to change.

How do we know? Biblical prophecy reveals it. Before we investigate this prophecy, it’s important to remember that the nations of Israel, Britain and Germany today are the modern descendants of biblical Judah, Ephraim and Assyria respectively. If you haven’t done so already, you may prove this for yourself by studying our free book The United States and Britain in Prophecy.

Notice Hosea 5:13: “When Ephraim [Britain] saw his sickness, and Judah [Israel] saw his wound, then went Ephraim to the Assyrian, and sent to king Jareb: yet could he not heal you, nor cure you of your wound.” Longtime readers of the Trumpet know editor in chief Gerald Flurry has pointed to the Middle East “peace process”—in which the Jewish state seeks to accommodate Islam through a series of peace agreements—specifically as Judah‘s wound.

Now notice. Hosea’s prophecy, which is for this end time, clearly states that when Judah sees its wound—when it sees its peace process with the Arabs has failed—Ephraim, or Britain, also sees its sickness. Then both nations ask Assyria, or Germany, to rescue them.

Notice that Judah’s “wound” is mentioned in the same context as Ephraim’s “sickness.” Does it not make sense that the wound that drives Israel into the arms of Germany might be closely linked to the sickness that causes Britain to do the same?

It is no coincidence that radical Islam threatens both Britain and Israel!

This prophecy also clearly states that both Israel and Britain will reach a point where they recognize their “wound” or “sickness,” and will be motivated to do something about it!

This is happening in both Israel and Britain on a small scale, where clear thinkers like Caroline Glick and Melanie Phillips are working furiously to awaken their peoples to the enemies in their midst, as well as their respective governments’ failure to confront the problem. Hosea’s prophecy tells us that both Britain and Israel will soon wake up to the danger in their midst!

But when they do, it will be too late. Britain will see that it has allowed the armies of Islam to supplant British society and culture, and that they’re too advanced and formidable for Britain to remove alone. Citizens of the Jewish state will realize the same. But the truly sad part is that when this occurs, instead of turning to God to save them—the original source of their national success, and many of their traditions and laws—both Israel and Britain will look to Germany for assistance.

That, as many other Bible prophecies reveal, will be a fatal mistake!
