This blog initially set out to focus primarily on Islam and the Islamisation of the UK. However, since that time the subjects covered have broadened. They now include (amongst other things): IQ tests, Jean Baudrillard, global warming, sociobiology, Marxism, Trotskyism, David Cameron, Foucault, Nazism, Ralph Miliband, economics, statistics and so on. - Paul Austin Murphy
I've had articles published in The Conservative Online, American Thinker, Intellectual Conservative, Human Events, Faith Freedom, Brenner Brief (Broadside News), New English Review, etc... (Paul Austin Murphy's Philosophy can be found here.)

Bradford - A City of Pakistani Muslims

George Galloway: "Here in Blackburn... sorry, Bradford, I know I can rely on Muslims... sorry, the ethnic minorities, to support Islam.... sorry, to support progressive socialism."

A survey has found that one in five people in the Bradford district is now of Pakistani origin.

(One thing to remember here is that this survey excluded Bradford’s Bangladeshi and Kashmiri Muslims, as well as the small number of Kurdish, Bosnian, Somalian, etc. Muslims in Bradford.)

Bradford has more Pakistani resident than any other place in England and Wales. I think that many Brits have known this for decades. Bradfordians have certainly known it for a long time.

The official percentages and statistics go like this:

Twenty per cent of people in the district – a total of 107,000 people – identified themselves as an Asian or British Asian of Pakistani descent, according to figures released yesterday by the Office for National Statistics.

As all percentages and statistics need context, one context is this: this figure compares to two per cent nationally.

The “one in five” statistic doesn’t tell us everything. For a start, Bradford is a big area. In Howarth and the surrounding council estates of Bradford, for instance, I would say that there are hardly any Pakistanis. However, in Manningham, Bradford Moor, Heaton, Great Horton, etc. Muslims make up the majority. Indeed in some places there are no non-Pakistanis or Bangladeshis (or at least no non-Muslims). In certain Muslim ghettos there are a few non-Muslims(whites) – mainly, for example, on Manningham Lane which is of course a conduit into the business and shopping center of the city itself. However, many other parts of Manningham are exclusively Muslim areas and that’s true of other Muslim ghettos within Bradford.

It’s not being said here that these ghettos don’t contain any whites or non-Muslims. (Apparently, the Bradford Telegraph & Argus’s very own Communist celebrity, Karl Dallas, lives “right in the thick of it”, apparently; probably for ideological reasons as well as reasons of his leftist piety and supreme tolerance of all things – and I mean all things! – Muslim and Islamic.) In all ghettos there are minorities – in these cases, white or non-Muslim minorities.

*) What I found remarkable about the politicians/councillors’ comments on these stats are how non-political and even non-sociological they are. They have discussed them completely in terms of economics and social services. There was nothing about society as a whole or about the social or political implications of such statistics.  According to Councillor David Green, leader of Bradford Council, it’s all about how he, or Bradford Council, can “plan… [to] deliver services such as transport, housing, healthcare and education” to Pakistanis in Bradford. In other words, it’s all about how he can help Bradford’s Pakistanis and thus gain their votes (plus a decent standard of living) in repayment.

So no connections will be, or have been, made between the massive amount of Pakistanis (Muslims) in Bradford and the big problems with Muslim grooming gangs, the Muslim rape of specifically non-Muslims, Muslims pushing drugs onto specifically non-Muslims, Muslim gang violence specifically against non-Muslims, the Muslim ghettoisation of Bradford, the lawlessness of Muslims (from taxi drivers to young Muslims on the street) and so on.

Of course no politician or councillor can say anything about these issues. The truth hurts. In this instance, the pain will be almost instant political destruction. No councillor or politician in Bradford will ever make any connections between Islam/Muslim behaviour and how it is deeply connected to many of the problems in Bradford; as is the case elsewhere in the UK and, indeed, in the entire world. There is mass Muslim-related violence throughout the world today. Almost 90% of all global conflicts not only involve Muslims fighting or killing non-Muslims; but also Muslims doing that fighting because their religion, Islam, demands it of them. All this is replicated, on a smaller scale, in the UK and indeed in Bradford itself. Yet that massive amount of evidence, from Muslim grooming gangs to the Islamic jihad in literally dozens of countries worldwide, will not be commented upon by any British politician, let alone a Bradford politician or councillor who lives in a city which has at least a 30% Muslim population. As I said, the utterance of any such facts would result in instant political death. Not death by Muslims; but death from fellow councillors, politicians, the T & A, etc. (Kris Hopkins MP, over in Keighley, has made comments about Muslim grooming gangs. Perhaps he got away with it because he’s a Conservative MP as well as a Conservative in Keighley – which is a different place, politically, when compared to the hard-core political correctness and multicultural piety of Bradford.)


  1. I lived in a muslim ghetto in Leicester and had pooh, washing up liquid, eggs and wee put through my letterbox, bangs on the door at night, eggs thrown at my windows, verbal sexual insults shouted at by the crowd in the Islamic video rental shop, stalked by men at night. It was awful and I feared for my life, even having to wear a hooded coat to protect myself better.

    I have spent twenty years trying to make people believe me.

    I have recently discovered that the Abrahamic religions were based on an imaginery volcano god...Yahweh, which means there is neither a god nor an allah.

    I have spent the last two or three years researching this theory and collating my findings. I am now spending my time trying to get people to listen.

    I believe this theory is our only hope. Please help me to pass it on. I do believe it is possible to make the biggest and strongest building callapse by pulling just one brick...and this is that brick.

  2. Your experiences in Leicester sound terrible. Then again, I’ve heard very many similar stories and I myself have experienced similar things.

    I know what you mean about getting people to believe you. But those people who don’t believe the realities of living, as a non-Muslim, in Muslim ghettos, or near them (as well as other Muslim/Islamic realities in the UK), usually don’t do so for ideological (usually leftist or liberal) reasons. That is, they cannot believe what you say. They must not believe what you say. To believe such things will be tantamount, to them, to encouraging “racism” and “Islamophobia” and also to creating ‘injustice” in our society. So no matter how bad things really are; admitting that badness will make things much worse or worse but in a very different way. This means that anything Muslims do that is bad has effectively to be ignored. And this was illustrated just yesterday in Manchester University. During a debate there, a Muslim woman said that gays should be killed and adulterers should be stoned. However, there comments were secretly filmed/recorded and the Student Union was entirely concerned with that secret filming and not at all concerned with what the Muslimah had to say.

    Despite my general agreement with you, I don’t see why your theory about Yahweh is that relevant even if it’s true. It seems to me to be utterly tangential to all these issues. Saying that you theory about Yahweh or whatever “is our only hope” seems incredible. I just don’t get it. No general political or social problem, especially one based on Islam, will fall by pulling just “one brick” or by advancing a single theory. It rarely – if ever – happens like that. Again, your comments on Yahweh and volcanoes don’t seem to be that deeply connected to your experiences in Leicester.
