The Summer of Muslim Discontent - 'The Arab Spring'

The rather dignified and well mannered residents of the U.K. haven’t seen so much civil unrest leading to violence in their little island nation since the days that the Angles had a bone to Pict with the Scots! Yes, since the days of Sir Robert Bruce, who helped to free Scotland from English rule at the battle of Bannockburn in 1314, there has not been so much strife and turmoil in this tiny little island! And there have never been so many discontented Brits living between the white cliffs of Dover, and the Shetland islands in the north as there are today!
But the combination of Great Britain’s native poor and disaffected masses, and their growing Muslim population, which has recently immigrated to England from Pakistan, and various other parts of the former British Empire, certainly seems hell-bent on giving William Wallace and Robert Bruce a run for their money, and for their notoriety too! These modern day hooligans who are rioting now in England, and who are literally trying to burn the place to the ground, are a combination of Middle Eastern and Asian immigrants, and run of the mill 'English riff raff ', and it’s safe to say that their hatred of British institutions, would not take a back seat to that of the Scots under Wallace and Bruce! Yes there hasn't been so much turmoil in merry old England since the Scots were demanding their freedom in the 14th century! The hatred of these modern day rebels may go all the way back to the Sepoy Rebellion in India, but wherever it comes from, it certainly is very real! Whether or not the English will accommodate their poor Muslim immigrants in the same way that they accommodated the determined Scots under Robert Bruce, still remains to be seen, but perhaps they can carve out a little county somewhere in the south or west of England and call it ‘Londonistan,’ and all of the Pakistani immigrants who want to live under Sharia law, can move there! That would take a lot of the pressure off of their own native poor, and it would solve a great deal of the problems in England today. It would also end a lot of the unemployment, and decrease a lot of the tensions too!
The so called inspiration for what is taking place in England today, probably goes back to the summer of 2005, when the North African Muslims of France staged similar street riots in Paris and Marseille, and other French cities, and got away with it! They burned cars, and torched business to the ground all across France, and this violence lasted for more than one month during the summer and fall of 2005! In England, the Archbishop of Canterbury, who is the official head of the Anglican Church, has recently said that Sharia law is inevitably going to come to England! Well, with boobs like that running the Anglican Church, or in other high places in British politics, it is no wonder that Great Britain’s substantial Muslim community is contributing to the growing unrest in England!
The turmoil in the Islamic world that has spread all across North Africa, from Tunisia to Egypt, and across the Red Sea into the Middle East, where it is now taking root in Syria, has just added fuel to the fire that originally began in France, in the summer of 2005! That is most likely the encouragement for what is going on in England today! There is almost no country in Europe that has not been affected by this civil unrest! Germany, Holland, Norway, and even tiny, little Switzerland have all experienced the fallout from The Summer of Muslim Discontent, which is prematurely labeled by the Media as ‘the Arab Spring.’ What has occurred all throughout the Islamic World from Tunisia to Egypt, and from Yemen to Syria, has certainly influenced these street riots in England! It may just be that the unintended consequences of 'Murphy's Law' are finally catching up to the Western World! But all across Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East, disenfranchised people, mostly Muslims are rioting everywhere, staging street demonstrations, and bringing down their governments! So who’s next? It would be fascinating to watch Queen Elizabeth put in a cage in London, just like Hosni Mubarak was put in a cage in Cairo, and to see her put on trial for crimes against the Uma, (the Muslim world). I'm sure they could come up with a long list of alleged crimes too, if they were given half a chance! Please don't misunderstand me. I am not suggesting that we should allow the Queen to be put in a cage. I am just hoping that the English will wake up before it is too late! What I am saying is that if they don't wake up soon, with a little help from her friends, the Archbishop of Canterbury, and her Islamophile son Prince Charles, it just might actually happen!
