May 21, 2014 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – The penetration of the British Isles by Islam has been widespread; it’s the fastest growing faith in a culture which is rapidly losing its Christian heritage and moorings..
Using 2001 as the baseline year, census data prepared by the UK government paints a unsettling picture:
In 2001 there were 37.2M Christians, in what the census refers to as Britain’s “usual resident population.” Now that number has fallen by 12%, to 33..2M.
In the same period of time the nation’s Muslim population has almost doubled, from 1.5M in 2001 to 2.7 today.
Almost mirroring the rise of British Islam, those holding no faith has also nearly doubled, from 7.7M to 14.1M.
The numbers reveal a clear ethnic linkage, whereas about 90% of both Christians and non-believers are Caucasian, the majority of Muslims are non-Caucasian with only 8% falling within that category. Approximately 78% of Britain’s Muslim population are either Asian, Black Carribean or African with the overwhelming majority being of Asian ancestry.
This growing population is about equally divided between native and non-native born.
The growth of Islam in Britain has a high correlation with the growth of terrorism convictions.
In 2002 and 2003 there were only two of these however from 2005 – 2011 there were 21 according to figures compiled by the country’s security service, MI5.
Of special concern, British prisons have become da'wa [conversion] centers and many of thse newly minted Muslims immediately go on the warpath against the West. Some become involved with the country's already well established stealth-jihadist street rabble while others have left the country to pursue violent jihad abroad, with Syria now as a typical destination.
