People often wonder how it is that Muslims could have contributed so little to the world, why Jews for example, with only 2% of the world's population, have been able to win something like 20-25% of all the Nobel prizes ever awarded while Muslims, with 20% of the world's population, have managed only 4. (Incidentally, two of these were peace prizes for conflicts the Muslims themselves started so I fail to see them as a genuine positive contribution to the human race; another was for literature; only one, for chemistry, was a tangible contribution to human well-being and that, I believe, was a joint award with several other scientists.)

The answer is simple: the culture of Islam discourages independent, creative thought. Original thinkers are threatened and, ultimately, if they refuse to be intimidated into silence, murdered. Statistically, the countries where Islam had achieved ascendancy must have been potential Galileos and Immanuel Kants but they were either murdered or cowed into silence. The howling Muslim mob ensured that their human potential went unfulfilled.

It is fascinating, therefore, to observe the same process at work among the Muslim colonists in Britain today.

The Independent reports today that Usama Hasan, a Muslim scientist who delivered a lecture arguing that Islam was compatible with Darwin's theory of evolution has, as a result, had his life threatened, been dismissed from his position as an imam and expelled from his mosque.

"One man came up to me during the lecture and said 'You are an apostate and should be killed'," Dr Hasan told The Independent. "I want to go back – I've been going to the mosque for 25 years. It is my favourite mosque in London, and I have been active in the community for a long time. I hope my positive contribution will outweigh their feelings towards me."

After learning of the fury his lecture had provoked, Hasan issued a statement saying, "I seek Allah's forgiveness for my mistakes and apologise for any offence caused."

Andrew Gilligan in the Telegraph reported a few days ago on the Muslim mobs that now seem permanent features of politics in Tower Hamlets, where Lutfur Rahman, a Muslim mayor with links to Islamic extremists, now rules the roost.

Since the election in October, councillors say, the public gallery at meetings has been regularly filled with a group Tower Hamlets is starting to know as “Lutfur’s crew” or “Lutfur’s army” – and they appear to specialise in a particular form of abuse towards the Mayor’s opponents.

“It has started really since the mayoral election,” Cllr Peter Golds, the leader of the opposition, told me. “Beforehand there may have been the odd comment, but never anything like this.”

“This” is the homophobic abuse to which Mr Golds, several other gay councillors and even a member of the public asking a question have been subjected in the council chamber. “It is horrible, absolutely bloody awful,” Golds says.

Mr Golds confirms that he was repeatedly subjected to homophobic abuse from the public gallery at the council’s abortive budget-setting meeting on February 23. “A prominent supporter of Lutfur Rahman with a very distinctive voice kept calling out ‘Mrs Golds! Mrs Golds!’ when I spoke,” he said. Another Rahman supporter called Mr Golds a “poofter.” A councillor, Anna Lynch, has made an official complaint about the abuse.

At the previous meeting, on February 2, Mr Golds says, Lutfur Rahman supporters in the public gallery heckled Labour’s deputy leader, Josh Peck, who is also openly gay, with the shout of “Unnatural acts! Unnatural acts!” At the same meeting, a member of the public who asked a question about bringing a (gay) Pride march to East London was greeted with “animal noises” from the public gallery, Mr Golds says.

On LabourList this week, Labour’s chief whip on Tower Hamlets, Cllr Rachael Saunders, who was also present, described the 23 February meeting:
“Part way through the meeting Cllr Anna Lynch told the Chair that she had heard someone shout “poofter” when Peter Golds, Conservative leader, who is openly gay, was speaking. Some people had already been evicted from the meeting for disruption by the chair of council, Motin Uz-Zaman. Motin tried to evict the person who had made this comment. An adjournment was called. Anna and Motin were both then threatened by members of the public in the gallery, with shouts that they would “get them”. Some of those involved in the fracas were amongst the Independent Mayor’s most prominent supporters.”

Ms Saunders says, surely correctly: “None of us came to the meeting on Wednesday wanting to talk about homophobia, or about the intimidation and bigotry that too often surrounds Tower Hamlets politics, but when someone shouts “poofter” as a part of a barrage of abuse directed at a gay individual, we have no choice. Labour members there to watch the meeting have since reported clear homophobic abuse from other parts of the public gallery.”
Mr Golds says: “Since Lutfur became mayor the spectator section has had these groups of people in. They are Lutfur’s crew and their behaviour is horrible.”

I’ve seen Lutfur’s little helpers in action a few times myself. On polling day in October they hung around in large groups outside several polling stations, and you had to run a gauntlet of them to vote. I overheard one of them scolding a Bengali woman voter for her “improper dress.”

As these stories indicate, we are now seeing the rise of the Muslim mob in Britain. The same process that has stifled independent thought for more than a 1000 years throughout the Umma is now operating in Britain, as Britain is being absorbed into it.
