And one day the immams and mullahs will call a halt to that assimilation because it can only be done if one leaves behind the tenets of islam in practice, if not nominally. Like lapsed catholics, they are in effect lapsed Muslims. Islam does not treat such people kindly.

I don't condemn the man. Christians leave judgement to God. Muslims leave it to Mullahs. If you bring in large numbers of muslims you bring in Islam. They cannot be separated for long however many of your friends appear to be reasonable, even Westernised. Conversely, you cannot restrict Islam without restricting individuals.
The power of mullahs and other officials of Islam is absolute. There will come a time when all muslims are called on to uphold Sharia and challenge Christians and Jews to accept it. Islamisation happens slowly by stealth and by the vulnerabilities in Western democracies, but happen it will.

I had written a reply but my jittery mouse erased it. I assume you refer to the treaty between Spain and the Netherlands signed at Antwerp. Basically I don't want rule by popes or mullahs. They are both awful for similar reasons. Islam is not a private religion. it is a religion demanding public acceptance and government of all aspects of society. It claims the authority of Allah handed down through mullahs. Monarchs and Popes in 1609 claimed the authority of God. The great Protestant relief was that people could then talk directly to God. Not so in Islam, even today, centuries later.

The point he and you miss is that Islam and individual Muslims cannot easily be separated and Islam is not compatible with sustainable secular government as Christianity and Judaism are separable from secular government.
You speak as though you believe Islam is simply some private matter. It is not. It demands that the whole of society be governed by Sharia. You can be Christian or Jewish in a Muslim society so long as you accept being a second class citizen with fewer rights, shut yourself away, and in some cases pay the dhimmi tax. Similarly you cannot be a fully practising muslim unless you practise Sharia. That is antithetical to and contravenes British law.
Muslims who give up Sharia and accept Western law, culture and historic practice are of course welcome. But most do not and there is no good reason why Western society should adapt to accommodate what to many is an abhorrent set of beliefs. Also, Muslims who do adopt Western culture and assimilate, make themselves enemies of islam.

Which one?

Well, I had one Muslim family for Christmas lunch. Most interesting. The whole point of Christmas could not be discussed. I have employed Muslim women - a very difficult proposition. Don't be fooled by Takiya. I have travelled widely including several Muslim countries and done business with Muslims. I don't personally know any rapists, murderers and terrorists, categories in which Muslims are disproportionately represented. Unfortunately I have to rely on factual research for that. Besides, if you read the Koran and Hadith you will find that the vast majority of terrorist acts are justifiable in the teachings of Islam, as are the crimes of rape of white non-Muslim girls. these ae hate crimes. One of the peculiar things in Islam is that a wife who is unfaithful or a woman who has sex out of wedlock should be killed by stoning, yet the men involved are blameless. To contain their sexual desires they demand that women of effable age dress in burkas, niqabs and so on. Do you expect your Muslim friends to try to justify that?
As Churchill said, so long as that book (the Koran) exists there will not be peace on earth.
I also have acquaintances who are Muslim and have fled persecution by the mullahs to become refugees. i contribute financially to their support which assists them to find employment and to extract their wives and family from Muslim countries in which they are persecuted for being in the wrong sect or branch of Islam or for adopting Western ideas and lifestyles. I also support charities supporting persecuted Christians - a far more widespread problem than persecution of Muslims by Muslims. But we don't hear much about that in the biassed Islamophobia obsessed media.

No, he won't because he has no bloody right to attempt to do so. Mission impossible. Muslims bring it on themselves.

Ah yes, but 1) the plan is only to agree the outline of a deal, ie., it is little more than an agenda of loosely defined non-binding objectives, and 2) Mrs May is desperate for a deal, any deal. As JRM said, continuing purgatory.

He is what my mother would call 'too clever by half' and wrong. I am hoping he is so sharp he cuts himself.
