I find it immensely odd and ironic that the UPI researcher, whose boss Raimo Väyrynen, invited the head of the highly anti-Semitic Organization of the Islamic Conference, Sec-Gen Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, to speak in Helsinki last year, is now going to label an elected official of being a “racist” because he’s concerned over the problems Muslim migration will bring with it to Finland. Well here’s a wake-up call for UPI researcher, Mr.Archer:
MUSLIMS want to create their own communities and remain segregated from British society.
A shocking 44% think they should be free to develop along separate lines. But critics claim Muslims will create their own ghettos if they are left to their own devices. The poll found religion has replaced race as the biggest equality issue, with six in 10 Brits thinking it is more divisive.
Mass tension has grown following terror attacks from Muslim fanatics, including the 7/7 Tube bombings in 2005. The war in Iraq has also added to divisions leaving many communities split. But critics are fuming Muslims are refusing to fit into our way of life. English Democrats’ chairman Robin Tilbrook said: “As far as I’m concerned, what we want to be about is having an integrated society. “If people don’t want to integrate, they shouldn’t be here.“It’s not at all right to have what’s really a sort of ghetto situation developing – it’s going to lead to trouble.“We can’t have a single society with lots of different rules.”
Stephen Green, national director of Christian Voice, said: “I’m not surprised because there are already Muslim enclaves all over the country. They keep themselves to themselves anyway.” The Equalities and Human Rights Commission poll found 67% of Muslims would not be happy for their child to marry someone of a different religion. But marrying someone from a different race bothers them less, with 61% content with the idea.The shock results come a day after commission chairman Trevor Phillips said Britain was “by far” the least racist country in Europe.
Finnish bloggerVasarahammer, who brought the incident to the TT’s attention comments: “Learning from others’ mistakes is called wisdom. Stupid people do the same thing all over again expecting different results.”
Absoutely true. One only has to look at the immense problems that Muslim immigration creates in other neighboring states, to figure out that it might not be such a smart thing to create here as well. Nipping it in the bud before it becomes a major headache in Finland, is the right course of action, and only a simpleton would conclude that it has anything to do with racism. It has everything to do with common sense, something of which is that is lacking in many of the departments over at the UPI. KGS

UPDATE: Newly appointed Finnish MEP, Eeva-Riitta Siitonen reportedly stated at the same meeting that “anti-immigration and Halla-aho type racists are born from poverty and from economic frustrations.”
These elitist politicians are so far removed from reality, that they make themselves into laughingstocks every time they open up their mouths.
UPDATE: More reflection for Toby Archer.
I am sending you this e-mail regarding the situation in France concerning the Israeli offensive in the Gaza strip. I doubt I will tell you something that you already don’t know, but still, things look pretty grim right now. We already reached an all time low in this country during the second Intifada. The phenomenon which appeared during that time, especially in the high schools located in the Parisian suburbs, where the majority of the students are Muslim, has not disappeared.
To summarize in a few words a very complicated and painful situation, it is impossible for an individual, whether a student or a teacher, to say that you are a Jew. If you say so, you’ll end in a hospital. Don’t show any hostility to Al-Qaeda, or Hamas, you’ll be exposed to the same kind of violence. You can also talk to some of these kids, they’re open to discussion. Many of them dream to become a martyr and blow up themselves. It’s after all understandable, that’s what they hear in their mosque.
The situation right now is much worse. And it’s only the beginning. We had demonstrations every Saturday in every big city in France, and also smaller cities, against the Israeli bombings in Gaza. There’s nothing wrong with that per se. We live in a democracy after all. These demonstrations have a different flavor. The 20.000 people demonstrating in Paris were not in the streets to claim peace but to shout that Israel should be destroyed.
Israeli flags were burned, the support was for Hamas, not Fatah (as you know, this organization has betrayed his own people), and you could see giant pictures of Nasrallah. One of the sentences you could hear, repeatedly, was “Death to the Jews and the Zionists”. This was going on in Paris among other places. Two weeks ago the demonstrators stopped Place de l’Opera, shouted Allah is great and prayed [to] Allah. This is a fact, not bad science-fiction. In Mulhouse, the demonstrators wanted to end the day at the synagogue, and destroy it. The police prevented it.
It’s a pretty bad time right now to pray in a synagogue in the eastern part of France – bombs are being thrown once in a while, let’s say once a week – or in a Parisian suburb.
Now, who are these people? Where do these demonstrators come from? You have the usual suspects like the Communist party, the various Trotskyites parties, members of the National Front, people known to be close to revisionists groups and, mainly, ordinary people, from North Africa who suddenly claim that Allah, Hamas and the destruction of Israel matter more than their French citizenship. What we saw in the past three weeks were the first massive Islamic demonstrations in France.
And they’re not going to disappear like that. A peace agreement in the Middle-East won’t make things disappear. Just this week-end, a famous French stand-up comedian called Arthur could not perform in a French city. There too many demonstrators outside the concert hall, the police could not manage security inside the building. Now, who is Arthur? A Zionist loony? Someone who said death to all Palestinians? Arthur did not even give his advice about what’s going on in the Middle-East. He’s just a Jew. Obviously a crime nowadays.
I sometimes wonder how people are going to react to this situation. Not Jewish people. For them, we already know. But let’s say my colleagues at (media outlet deleted), in the place known to be one of the center of the so called French elite. A few of them don’t enjoy these demonstrations. Only a few of them. The vast majority doesn’t understand the danger Israel is facing with Hamas, Iran and Hezbollah. They don’t understand the danger our country is facing with a growing minority who believe that the law of the French republic matters less than the Islamic law. It is a problem, a huge one.
