The New Politics

The Election of Sadiq Aman Khan

Western Democracies are undergoing fundamental changes which only those who have read the Book can fully appreciate. One of those changes will impact on how ostensibly secular democracies function, if at all.

Johnny: The religious leadership then called on Muslims to vote their religion. In the next elections, voting as a block, they replaced the council with Muslims or council members who were favourable to their demands. To ensure a favourable vote they had even invited Muslims from neighbouring communities to move to this small Québec town.

Muhammad: What is wrong with that?

Johnny: Some parishioners protested this was using, abusing the democratic process to further religious objectives.

Muhammad: By using man-made laws to further the cause of God, Muslims were using democracy the way it was intended, to vote God into government and to vote out those who would exclude Him. Democracy never had a more noble purpose.

Election fraud allowed to take place in Muslim communities because of 'political correctness', report warns

In a report commissioned by the Government, Sir Eric Pickles, the former Conservative Cabinet minister, today warns that the authorities are in a “state of denial” and are “turning a blind eye” to election fraud …

He said that there is evidence of voter fraud “especially in communities of Pakistani and Bangladeshi background” but that the cases have been ignored because of “over-sensitivities about ethnicity and religion”.

The former local government secretary began his investigation in the wake of the scandal in Tower Hamlets, London, where the mayor Lutfur Rahman was removed and his election declared void after he was found by a court to have committed corrupt electoral practices including vote-rigging.

Sir Eric said that Rahman had used religion to push Muslims into backing him.

Sir Eric said that never again in Britain should people be told that they will “burn in hell” if they do not back a particular candidate.

Sir Eric also sharply criticises the Metropolitan Police for failing to follow up the election court’s ruling with any criminal charges.

He says that the force’s inaction “sends a worrying signal that the police are soft on tackling and prosecuting electoral fraud.

Sir Eric says that following his investigation, he now believes “electoral malpractice is far more common than just one isolated London borough thanks to the state’s collective state of denial”.

Sadiq Aman Khan was elected the first Muslim mayor of London in May. An overwhelming majority of the Muslim electorate voted for one of their own.

Did they do it out of fear of burning in Hell?

Considering Allah's invectives against Christians and Jews many likely did. Still, enough non-Muslims voted for Khan for him to post the largest personal mandate of any politician in the history of the United Kingdom, making him not the mayor of Muslims but a Muslim mayor.

Nonetheless, Sir Eric's report and block voting by the faithful does not leave much room for optimism. As to the police being "soft on tackling and prosecuting electoral fraud" if may have more to do with fear than political correctness.
