Gatestone Institute: 423 New Mosques, 500 Closed Churches in London
The Gatestone Institute reports Sunday on the striking rate of closures of churches in the United Kingdomâ€™s capital city, a trend mirrored elsewhere in Europe, and the blooming number of mosques that have been established in their stead.
â€śLondon is more Islamic than many Muslim countries put togetherâ€ť, according to Maulana Syed Raza Rizvi, one of the Islamic preachers who now lead â€śLondonistanâ€ť, as the journalist Melanie Phillips has called the English capital. No, Rizvi is not a right-wing extremist. Wole Soyinka, a Nobel Laureate for Literature, was less generous; he called the UK â€śa cesspit for Islamistsâ€ť.
â€śTerrorists can not stand London multiculturalismâ€ť, Londonâ€™s mayor Sadiq Khan said after the recent deadly terror attack at Westminster. The opposite is true: British multiculturalists are feeding Islamic fundamentalism. Above all, Londonistan, with its new 423 mosques, is built on the sad...
Something tells me that this is not the same place that the King James Bible came from. What happenend? BEWARE of GOD the real terrorist if you don't repent Not So Great Britin!
And if ye will not for all this hearken unto me, but walk contrary unto me; Then I will walk contrary unto you also in fury; and I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins. And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat. And I will destroy your high places, and cut down your images, and cast your carcases upon the carcases of your idols, and my soul shall abhor you. And I will make your cities waste, and bring your sanctuaries unto desolation, and I will not smell the savour of your sweet odours. And I will bring the land into desolation: and your enemies which dwell therein shall be astonished at it. Lev 26:27-32

The unemployed and asylum seekers, can claim Government benefits and welfare, though the Government is trying to control that, but the rich Muslims often help as well using the compulsory annual zakat tax levied on all religious Muslims annually at Ramadan.
To answer Mike's question from New York, broadly there are 4 main types of Muslims in Britain.
The 1st type that are nit much a problem are "cultural", "occasional" and "nominal" Muslims, who do not follow their religion, and more or less integrate with the general community.
The 2nd type are professional and working Muslims, who get qualifications, jobs and professions, but who are fairly or even extremely religious. Those in poorer jobs live in these communities, the better off ones migrate to more mixed very rich areas, but retain their firm religious commitment, and use their money and talents to push the Islamic agenda.
The 3rd type are the mass of unemployed or even unemployable asylum seekers and others, and also prisoners, who are easily radicalised, and who are openly radical.
The 4th type are possibly the most dangerous, as they are zealous and enthusiastic, and often well educated converts from non-Muslim backgrounds, and are generally the most radical.

How are they eating? Where does their food come from? Where do they work? It would be hard to believe they are self-sufficient within a practically enclosed sharia ghetto. Is someone outside them providing for their sustenance?
There are indeed areas of London, and many other large and even small cities in Britain, where there is a considerable Islamic presence.

Some of these buildings are indeed located in former churches, chapels, and associated halls.
The observance of sharia law is getting stricter, and these folks will generally go to their imams and community leaders in the first instance, rather than police, social services, the courts, or government agencies. The latter are only involved when they absolutely have to be.
Islamic religious observance had intensified, and the burka, for example, now is a very common sight, from having been quite rare some 20 or so years ago
The liberal political and social authorities of course do their usual political correctness, and things are often covered up, though I praise God that at the moment we have not yet got to the awful state of Sweden, the Netherlands or Germany.
