we are thinking, following the fall of Islamic State’s from Iraq that this
monstrous Jihadist outfit has come to a point of being extinct, we possibly are
failing to understand or ignoring series of disturbing news on the rise of
radical Islam in the West. Deceiving our eyes, a silent ‘conquest’ of radical
Islam is continuing in the US, United Kingdom and some of the European nations.
It certainly is a matter of grave concern. Radical Islam is expanding fast in
United Kingdom enjoying patronization of major political force like Labour
Party. The way it is expanding, I am afraid, within the span of 20-30 years,
United Kingdom will turn into Islamic Kingdom. Pro Al Qaeda and ISIS Muslims
are very actively polluting the British society under direct patronization and
funding of some Arab nations. Here is just one example from hundreds.
British newspaper the Daily Mail in November 2017 published an article titled –
‘I’ve been called a racist and a bigot’: Stepfather explains why he complained
when school asked his girl, 12, to write a letter for homework about becoming a
Muslim’. The story in brief is, Mark McLachlan, 43, complained to Kepier School
in Houghton-le-Spring, Sunderland when he found the homework task in his
stepdaughter’s planner. He refused to let her finish the ‘letter to my family
about converting to Islam’, claiming it was ‘brainwashing’ her about the
religion and did not see what it would achieve.
since posting about it on social media he says he has received a lot of abuse.
He told MailOnline: ‘My wife and I are terrified of the repercussions.
time anybody says anything negative about Islam they are torn to shreds.
been called a racist and a bigot, but I’m just terrified for my children and
for the way this country is going.
years time I can see Britain becoming an Islamic state and my children and
grandchildren are still going to be alive – I don’t want them wearing a niqab.’
who has been with the 12-year-old’s mother for five years, said he was
particularly outraged by the task because he thinks she is being given a ‘false
representation of Islam’.
that a matter of grave concern? We must particularly look into a very worrisome
statement by McLechlan, where said, “My stepdaughter is coming home talking
about the Prophet Muhammad and halal meat saying Islam is the religion of
of feeling concerned, principal of Kepier School, Nicola Cooper said, “At
Kepier we feel it is very important to introduce our learners to all faiths and
cultures and we do this throughout the academic year.”
this is just one example of many proving, United Kingdom is embracing radical
Islam and letting it turn it to Islamic Kingdom sooner or later.
also have similar bad news even from the United States. On September 18, 2018,
New York Post published a news item titled ‘Israeli student at Columbia says
she’s being bullied by Palestinian group’. In this news, it is said, Dani
Dayan, the 24-year-old daughter of Ofir Dayan, Israel Consul General in New
York is harassed and threatened over her background by the group Students for
Justice in Palestine (SJP), and that Columbia University authorities are
failing to protect her.

semester, when she was in the lobby of Knox Hall — home to the Middle East
Institute — having a phone conversation in Hebrew.

a murderer!’ ” Ofir said. “Then she screamed, ‘Zionist, get out!’ A nearby
public-safety ¬administrator did nothing.”
October 2017, Ofir said, she and four members of Students Supporting Israel
(SSI) — she is the vice-president of the Columbia chapter — were leaving an
on-campus event for Israeli beauty queen Titi Aynaw. “The ¬moment [members of
SJP] saw us, they started screaming their slogans with a microphone to intimidate
us. There were at least 50 SJP members blocking the walkway.
were really angry and it was scary,” said Ofir, a vocal supporter of the Jewish
state. “I believed it would escalate to physical violence.”
year at the University of California, Irvine, an SJP chapter was issued a
two-year probation for disrupting an on-campus pro-Israel event. The same group
had been sanctioned in 2016 for “threatening chants,” according to the Jewish

antisemitic student’s organizations and websites such as National Students for

and most Jewish organizations with the exception of the equally radical,
anti-Zionist and pro-BDS Jewish Voice for Peace. Students for Justice in
Palestine advances their proprietary view of Palestinian justice by undertaking
initiatives to isolate, demonize, and ultimately destroy the state of Israel.
students and university administrations have treated SJP as a pro-Palestinian
equivalent to pro-Israel student groups such as StandWithUs, The Israel on
Campus Coalition or Hillel. However, as this monograph documents, SJP is an
extremist organization that maintains affiliations with Arab and Islamic terror
groups, is overtly anti-Semitic, incites hatred and violence against Jewish
students, and rejects the existence of the state of Israel in any borders.
has been linked to terror groups. Some have defined SJP as a campus front for
Hamas at University of California, Berkeley. Principal backers of SJP include founders,
financial patrons and ideological supporters who have been connected to
Islamist terror organizations such as Hamas, Hezbollah, Palestinian Islamic
Jihad, and the Marxist Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).
for Justice in Palestine is a byproduct of American Muslims for Palestine
(AMP), an organization whose leaders were former members of Palestinian and
Islamist terror organizations. AMP was founded in 2005 by the former leaders of
three organizations; Kindhearts, the Islamic Association for Palestine, and the
Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development. All three organizations were
implicated by the U.S. government between 2001 and 2011 for financing Hamas.
University and AMCHA Initiative studies reveal a direct correlation between BDS
activities and anti-Semitism on campuses with large Jewish student populations.
The studies also found a correlation between the presence of SJP and a rise in
campus anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism.
2015, there were 115 SJP campus branches according to the Anti-Defamation
League and as many as 120 according to a report by The Forwardthat same year.
However, a March 2017 map issued by National SJP claims SJP groups operate at
189 U.S. campuses.
students on campuses across the United States have been victimized by
anti-Semitic vandalism, verbal attacks, and outright violence at the hands of
the intensifying activity of Students for Justice in Palestine at over nearly
200 American campuses is necessary to neutralize SJP’s support for terror and
political warfare against Israel. Combatting SJP is also important to counter
the spread of anti-Semitic and Nazi propaganda, incitement to terror, and the
climate of fear and hate speech, which are drivers of domestic terrorism in the

However, as he interviewed attendees outside the assembly, he reported
overhearing organizers warning attendees of “hardcore conservatives lurking
around” and pro-Israel “spies” attending the conference in disguise. Later,
conference organizers ordered him not to approach attendees. One SJP volunteer
was assigned specifically to follow him and prevent him from speaking with
one university in North America, Fordham in New York, has rejected a student
request to form a SJP chapter. Dean of students Keith Eldredge declared that a
SJP chapter should not be established “in order to prevent polarization [on
campus]…and the resulting possible negative impacts on student safety and the
general security of the Fordham community.”
University’s SJP faculty advisor, Professor M. Shahid Alam, has told SJP
members that they should be proud to be called anti-Semites, and should wear
the title as a “badge of honor.”
alumni would be advised to speak with university administrations to call for
investigating SJP, to ensure that these organizations are not operating with
funding from terror-linked organizations or violating freedom of speech rights
of fellow students. Similarly, trustees and major donors should demand that
their universities follow Fordham’s example and reject SJP chapters on campus.
trustees, donors, alumni and administration would be advised to remain
vigilant, and demand that their campus communities and state governments
unmask, expose, investigate, prosecute, and sanction SJP in order to reign in
extremist terror-supporting and anti-Semitic actions on U.S. campuses.
the Washington Post played its anti-Trump bias in an article titled
inescapable anti-Semitism of Western nationalists’, we get some important fact
from it. There article said: A new study by the Anti-Defamation League, a
U.S.-based organization that tracks anti-Semitism and other bigotry, found an
alarming rise in anti-Semitic incidents in 2017. “The ADL’s 2017 Audit of
Anti-Semitic Incidents identified 1,986 examples of anti-Semitic harassment,
vandalism and assault in 2017, the largest single-year increase and the
second-highest number since it started tracking the data in the 1970s,” my
colleague Tara Bahrampour reported. “Vandalism was up by 86 percent, and
incidents targeting Jewish schools, community centers, museums and synagogues
had surged by 101 percent since 2016, the report found. The number of
anti-Semitic incidents in K-12 schools has roughly doubled each year for the
past two years, the report said.”
2014, British Broadcasting Corporation in a report titled, Is there a ‘rising
tide’ of anti-Semitism in the West said, “In France and Germany, synagogues and
Jewish community centres have been firebombed. In Britain, a rabbi was attacked
near a Jewish boarding school. And in Australia, a bus carrying Jewish
schoolchildren was targeted by teenagers shouting “Heil Hitler” and threatening
to slit the children’s throats.”
article titled ‘Anti-Semitism on the rise? Western European Jews think so’
German broadcaster Deutsche Welle said, “The report entitled “Antisemitism and
Immigration in Western Europe Today: Is there a connection?” presented findings
and recommendations from a 2016-17 project involving five separate national
reports from Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.
The research was commissioned by the Berlin-based “Remembrance, Responsibility
and Future” Foundation (EVZ) and led by the Pears Institute for the study of
Antisemitism, Birkbeck, University of London.
study examined various indicators of societal change, including increased
immigration from predominantly Muslim countries in the MENA region (Middle East
and North Africa). However, rather than measuring the number of anti-Semitic
verbal or physical attacks, the team of researchers measured perceptions of
anti-Semitism held by individuals from various religious, social and ethnic

problem in schools now that Germany has more pupils from countries that are
hostile to Israel, she replied that “anti-Semitism in schools is a big

seriously, regardless of who the bullies are,” she told the paper.”
News in 2018 in a report, quoting Alan Hoffmann, the CEO and director general of
The Jewish Agency for Israel, which helps Jews emigrate to Israel said, “In the
years following the attacks in France, 2015 and 2016, Hoffmann said “we saw
close to 8-thousand Jews coming to Israel. That’s 8,000 Jews out of a total
population of 500,000. In one year, that’s a very big percentage.”
Huffington Post in a blog article titled ‘Rising Anti-Semitism in Europe:
History Repeating Once Again’ said, “The anti-Semitism news from Europe in over
the past year has been terrible: Jews murdered in Paris and Copenhagen,
synagogues attacked by mobs and firebombed, and increasing Jewish emigration
attributed to fear of more attacks.
For the first time, the ADL poll measured Muslim attitudes in Belgium, France,
Germany, Italy, Spain, and the U.K. An average of 55 percent of Western
European Muslims harbored anti-Semitic attitudes. Acceptance of anti-Semitic
stereotypes by Muslims in these countries was substantially higher than among
the national population in each country (ranging from 12 to 29 percent), though
lower than corresponding figures of 75 percent for Muslims in the Middle East
and North Africa (MENA) in ADL’s 2014 poll.
The fight against anti-Semitism must be waged in the public square and at
schools, as well as by law enforcement. Political leaders must set the tone and
devote the political capital to encouraging every sector of society to engage
together to combat the scourge of anti-Semitism. Civil society and the business
community, educators and journalists, religious leaders and students, parents
and children, law enforcement officers, prosecutors and jurists must all join
get some crucial information on the rise of antisemitism in the West from an
article titled ‘On antisemitism: 1806, The West reacts to Jewish emancipation’,
published in the Jerusalem Post.
Middle East Forum in an article titled ‘The Western New Antisemitism Crisis:
Why Right Now?’ said: “Western political parties are undergoing astonishing
antisemitism crises. The British Labour Party and its leader Jeremy Corbyn have
been exposed as deeply and irrevocably antisemitic. The US Democratic Party has
now nominated nearly a half dozen candidates for Congress who are implacably
opposed to Israel, and stands on the verge of a millennial-driven transformation
into Labour. Accusations of Jewish disloyalty and Israeli conspiracies are
common, as are threats to banish Israel from the community of nations.
question is why, and why now? Why have not only the Labour and Democratic
Parties but universities, and, increasingly, the interlocked media and
entertainment complexes, turned against Jews?
There are old and new
first is the logic of socialism, where putative universalism and anti-elitism
turn against their traditional nemesis, the Jews, despite outsized Jewish
participation in these movements. Jewish difference is the enemy, and as
affluent Westerners suddenly rediscover socialism in order to quell ennui and
inner resentment against their bourgeois selves, traditional enemies have been
rediscovered as well.
general approval of Israel is widespread, at least in the US, anti-Zionism is
achingly transgressive, only a few stops beyond complaining about the cultural
appropriation inherent in wearing a kimono or making tea. And for young Jews
anxious to fit into the rapidly shifting cultural norms of the left, in
universities and urban society, Israel support is an obvious target. The
reluctance of Jews to conform on Israel then yields quickly to outright
with the burgeoning of racialized identity politics and ‘intersectionality’
–localized versions of Third Worldism and the ‘red-green alliance’ with
Islamists – traditional antisemitism has been updated. Jews are suddenly called
upon to play their traditional role – reject their identity and join the
vanguard or become an enemy of the people. This is familiar from the late 19th
and early 20th centuries.
explanation for the current explosion of deep-seated antisemitism is at once
more historically cyclical and au courant. Jews are simultaneously the most
assimilated Western minority and the one that remains demonstrably – even
uniquely – grateful to host nations, and to the idea of the nation-state and
its opportunities. This is intolerable to left-wing positions that reject the
nation-state, national identity, and national pride. Jewish attachment to
Israel compounds the transgression against post-nationalism, and this
connection to a unique and cosmic evil positions the attitude firmly as old-new
also said: “Conspiracism regarding Jews is thriving in Britain and growing in
the US, with accusations of dual loyalties and blood libels. Accusations that
Israel is a ‘Nazi state’ that ‘created ISIS’ conveniently joins the 20th
century’s most unequivocal villain with that of the 21st century, both utterly
anathematized. The other great villain is the US, the traditional Great Satan
to the British Left (with Israel as the Little Satan). In this manner past and
present enemies are unified, with limitless power as the sources of evil,
demanding cosmic justice.
are mostly elite formulae, but they have given license to popular outbreaks of
what might be called middle class antisemitism, expressed most vividly by
hundreds if not thousands of Labour Party members. A sudden eruption of mostly
traditional antisemitism from the public was waiting for its moment, with oddly
familiar rhetoric: Jews as disloyal, greedy, alien, clannish, manipulative, and
conspiratorial. This is merely nineteenth century antisemitism updated, no
longer theological but not yet racial.
antisemitic attitudes also refract another phenomenon: the unrootedness of a
broad swath of the British populace from Britishness. Few nations have
repudiated their histories with the speed and anger of Britain, and
post-imperial and post-colonial Britain possesses a deep self-loathing of its
history and culture. Few cultures are so explicit about guilt and repudiation,
although this is matched by the American far left, which sees the country’s
founding as Original Sin. These are elite formulae that have been disseminated
to the middle class through the educational system and media.
(indistinguishable from overweening expressions of self-righteousness and
self-love) also partially explains British and European attitudes towards
Islam. Official multiculturalism of the 1980s and later was designed precisely
to weaken the position of ‘white’ Europeans in their own countries, both
demographically and culturally, and was cast in the guise of progressive
enrichment and post-colonial restitution.
accepting millions of Muslims, especially from the most backward and
unassimilated areas of Pakistan and Africa, the instrument of national
self-mortification was chosen. Social dissolution in the form of ethnic
partitioning, no-go zones, rape gangs, terrorism, and violence followed, along
with separatist political parties. Was this an unintended consequence on the
part of European elites accustomed to Olympian decision-making; a deliberate
conspiracy, as the ‘Eurabia’ thesis suggests; or an unconscious choice to
self-destruct? Perhaps it was all three.”
tell my readers, the growing trend of antisemitism in the West is the
preliminary process of an Islamic conquest. Those who are promoting or
patronizing antisemitism certainly do not understand, this is what they are
doing is called self-destruction. By promoting antisemitism they actually are
heading towards implementation of Islam’s ultimate desire of conquering the
West and finally establishing Caliphate, similar to the agenda of ISIS. People
who are promoting antisemitism or appeasing it should understand what Koran
exactly asks the Muslims to do. It asks them to kill the non-Muslims if they do
not embrace Islam. Those who proclaim Islam as a religion of peace never say –
in a number of verses in Koran, it strictly asks the Muslims to engage into
Jihad and kill Jews, Christians and the non-Muslims. If we were looking for a
book of terrorism – a book of hatred – a book of massacre, here is the book,
which would meet all of our inquisitive searches.
believe, Hindus are infidels and enemies of Allah. They find extra comfort in
causing any harm to the Hindus. Muslim youths and men are taught in the mosques
and Islamic centers to get Hindus converted into Islam, for which they are
promised ‘special status’ in the ‘heaven’ along with their forefathers. Isn’t
this pathetic and unacceptable? Still I feel surprised witnessing Indian
leaders are embracing Palestinian terrorists and the leaders of these rogue
Arabs. Should India really understand the hidden agenda of Muslims,
antisemitism would have been outlawed in that country years back. But that is
not happening – very unfortunately. I know a lot of Hindus living in the West,
who do not consider Israel as the only democratic and legitimate country in the
Arab world. They [the Hindus] show sympathy towards the Palestinian terrorists
and even remain silent at the alarming rise of radical Islam in the West,
without understanding, one day, this growing monster will become their prime
Koranic teachings of Jihad and
Koran contains detailed instructions and examples of how to meet unbelievers.
The Qur’an states categorically that Muslims cannot have non-believers as
friends, advisors, consultants or protectors (Qur’an 3:118and 4:144). If a
Muslims wife is, or becomes, a disbeliever, the marriage can be discontinued
and the dowries paid for them can be demanded back (Qur’an 60:10). The second
instruction is that unbelievers should be called to Islam; in fact, the Qur’an
says you cannot wage war against unbelievers until you have preached to them.
The third instruction is that if they do not convert to Islam, then, they must
be fought. The fourth instruction is that if they surrender, or convert, then
you must stop waging war. If they do not convert or surrender, then they must
be killed. This is the optimum route for Islamist expansion: A tidal wave of
war, subjugation and conversion.
note the Koranic verse where is says “If they do not convert or surrender, then
they must be killed”, this is exactly what an ‘innocent’ Tablighi Jamaat
currently is doing. Their prime mission is dawah – meaning, they are calling
the non-Muslims to embrace Islam. Once this ‘preaching’ period will be over,
Tablighis will proclaim war against the non-Muslims – Jews and Christians in
individuals like Jeremy Corbyn or his Labour Party comrades are ready to
embrace Islam, they certainly are on the ‘right’ path. Tomorrow’s England will
witness extreme hostility from the Muslims if the Britons will refuse to
‘embrace’ Islam. That is the point, where Muslims will begin implementing
Koranic instruction of killing the non-Muslims. Similarly in the United States,
people like Barack Obama or the anti-Israel Democrats, Republicans and even
Jews are welcoming radical Islam with widely open arms to ‘conquer’ America and
one day – transform United States of America into Islamic States of America.
Those who are feeling amused in seeing the ugly dance of those appeasers of
anti-Israel bloc will soon find themselves captive into the whims of radical
Islam. If the people of the United States are really eager in letting their
country be hijacked by Islam, they must promote anti-Israel groups and individuals
with full vigor. If they think, by supporting Israel they are doing a huge
favor to the Jewish nation – I will say, they are totally wrong. Should there
be no Israel, radical Islamic militancy would have by now become a terrible
headache for every Western nation and they would already felt the heat.
Let’s look into our Muslim
the Western societies are considering the Muslims as the ‘most righteous
people’ and believing Islam as a ‘religion of peace’ should at least look into
the Muslim neighbors with an inquisitive eyes instead of being Islam biased.
an investigative journalist, I have been closely monitoring the silent rise of
radical Islam in the West. In each of the mosques and Islamic Centers, jihadist
indoctrinations are being planted into the minds of the Muslims by the members
of Tablighi Jamaat as well as sister organs of Jamaat-e- Islami and other
radical Islamic groups. During 2010-2018, a very large proportion of Muslim
females in the West have started using hijab and burqa while males have been
notoriously radicalized. Over 98 percent of the Muslims in the West do openly
oppose to the existence of the State of Israel while over 70 percent feel
delighted in seeing the rise of radical Islamic militancy groups. I have personally
interviewed several Muslim male and female, mostly living in the United
Kingdom, who are dreaming of the non-Muslims ‘embracing Islam’ within ‘a short
span of time’. Affluent Muslims especially those in the Arab nations are
donating millions of dollars behind various Islamic charitable organizations,
mosques and Islamic centers in the West with the nefarious hope of Islamizing
the western nations. What is happening in the Western educational institutions
are just tip of an iceberg. The gravity of potential danger is much beyond our
imagination. Unless antisemitism, anti-Zionism and anti-Israel notions are not
immediately banned in the West, no one can stop the disturbing rise and spread
of radical Islam in the Western societies.
