Default Re: Immigration Wrecking Our Country (Britain)

Thanks Thumper ... I guess this says it all

Londonistan is a pejorative sobriquet referring to the British capital of London, used since the 1990s by French counter-terrorism agents, as well as by the governments of Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, because of the number of exiled Islamist groups that established political headquarters in the city, from which they may seek to overthrow governments they consider oppressive heretical or plan terror attacks on other European countries.

Britain's attractions for Islamist dissidents are alleged to include its historical commitment to freedom of speech and perceptions that victims of political repression receive asylum, access to temporary accommodation and minimal monetary support. In fact London accommodation is not provided for asylum seekers, as the government policy is to disperse them throughout the country. London itself has a reputation as the centre of the Arab press corp, with leading newspapers such as Al Hayat and Al Quds al Arabi published in the city. The British capital became the international headquarters for such Islamic groups as Takfir-wal-Hijra, Hizb ut-Tahrir, the Movement for Islamic Reform in Arabia, headed by the controversial Sa'ad Al-Faqih, Bahrain Freedom Movement, and the Algerian Armed Islamic Group.

The British government's perceived unwillingness to prosecute or extradite terrorist suspects provoked tensions with countries in which attacks occurred. Allegations of a British policy of appeasement of Islamists were made and denied; should such a policy have existed, it could no longer be considered a success.
