The choice for those wanting to stop islamisation
Posted by sioeengland on January 20, 2008
When SIOE was started the founders attempted to distance the movement from party politics.
This was largely, though not entirely, for pragmatic reasons. Every political party has supporters, but obviously every party attracts opposition.
If a party, in Europe at least, attracts 30% of the popular vote it is doing very well.
In the UK no government has governed with an electoral mandate, that is over 50% of the total vote, since about 1933.
So even if a party has as much as 50% of the vote, the stop Islamisation movement needs as much of the other 50% as possible in order to succeed.
However, SIOE welcomes the formation of “Cities against Islamisation” as this now offers a choice for people. Those who support the political parties comprising “Cities against Islamisation” can attend events organised by the group.
Those who are not members or supporters of those parties can now support SIOE’s actions in the full knowledge that party politics are not part of the effort.
Of course people can attend events of either movement if they feel strongly enough about matters.
Provided the rules of each organisation are respected then people are welcome to support actions as they see fit.
Afterall, it is a matter of personal conscience, which, as we all know, Islam denies people, on certain issues at least.
We have a common goal which we can aim at instead of blasting away at each other.
There are now no excuses for not attending demos and other actions – if you truly care about keeping your identity, culture, democracy and way of life.
SIOE will at least try not to get into blog wars and mutual accusations/insults.
I suggest that all anti-Islamists focus on the positives provided by any group’s actions against sharia by stealth and encroaching Islamism.
Any differences can/should be now held outside the net and blogosphere.
