Nick and Mark are facing charges of “using words likely to incite racial hatred” because of alleged references to the threat of Islam to Britain.

The two accused of course deny these trumped up charges. Warning men and women of these islands that their ancient homelands are under a very real threat from a barbaric religion which is the antithesis of a western European mindset is neither illegal nor is it morally wrong.

It might be useful background material for all free speech supporters and those worried, alarmed or just plain curious about the history of Islamic influence in Europe to have a look at these three books. The influence has been less than positive and adjectives such as “murderous”, “bloody”, “savage” and “barbaric” spring to mind.

White Gold

This is the forgotten story of the million white Europeans, taken in chains to the great slave markets of North Africa to be sold to the highest bidder. Ignored by their own governments, and forced to endure the harshest of conditions, very few lived to tell the tale. Now, using the firsthand testimony of a Cornish cabin boy named Thomas Pellow, Giles Milton vividly reconstructs this disturbing, little known chapter of history in White Gold: The Extraordinary Story of Thomas Pellow and Islam's One Million White Slaves. Published June 2005

Sword of the Prophet

In this book the reader receives the unvarnished truth about the rise of Islam and the patterns set by its founder, Muhammad; the historical meaning of jihad against the (non-Muslim) “infidel” that we see today in the al-Qaeda terror network; the broad sweep of the global military, political, moral, and spiritual struggle that faces us; and what we must do if we wish to survive. The sober, factual, and contextual presentation found in this book is essential. Every person owes it to himself or herself to know the real score of the post-9/11 world – and this invaluable volume is the place to start.

Islam, the West and Islamism

This is subtitled “
Is ideological Islam compatible with liberal democracy?” That the very question itself has to be asked suggests the nature of the conclusion the authors make.
