Britain today has become one of the most godless societies on earth. Its principle religious exports today are thinkers who despise religion. From Richard Dawkins, who has compared religion to child abuse, to my friend Christopher Hitchens, who titled his 2007 book “God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything,” the British have cornered the market on being anti-God, at least the Christian and Jewish varieties.
The number of Britons choosing to become Muslims has nearly doubled in the past decade, according to one of the most comprehensive attempts to estimate how many people have embraced Islam.
Following the global spread of violent Islamism, British Muslims have faced more scrutiny, criticism and analysis than any other religious community. Yet, despite the often negative portrayal of Islam, thousands of Britons are adopting the religion every year.
We are told that Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance but the actions of Muslims belie this.
A police investigation was launched last month, after police saw leaflets being handed out calling on Muslims to murder Ahmadis.
A teenage Ahmadiyya girl, who did not want to be named, said she was “shaken and stirred” after being handed a leaflet written in Urdu saying “Kill a Qadiyyani and doors to heaven will be open for you”.
She said: “I was coming back from shopping and a guy handed me the leaflet. While I read it he asked me to come back. I told him I was an Ahmadi girl and he demanded I return the leaflet, but I refused.
“He was about 22 or 23 years old and had a long beard.”
A spokesman for Kingston police confirmed there was an ongoing investigation.
The Royal Islamic Strategic Studies Centre (RISSC) has named Timothy Winter, the lesser known brother of the sports writer Henry Winter, as one of the top 60 most influential Muslims in the World.
Timothy Winter, or Sheikh Abdul-Hakim Murad as he is known to his colleagues came considerably higher than the three other British people who make the list – the Conservative Party chairman Baroness Warsi; the UK’s first Muslim life peer, Lord Nazir Ahmed, who was briefly jailed last year for dangerous driving; and Dr Anas Al Shaikh Ali, director of the International Institute of Islamic Thought – making him, at least in the eyes of the RISSC, Britain’s most influential Muslim.
Having come ahead of the likes of the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in the list, he spoke with The Independent newspaper about what influenced him to convert to Islam.

In the event of Britain going to war with an Islamic country who will the Muslims fight for?
Would they fight for Britain or the Islamic country under attack? It is said that Muslims can only be regarded as truly British if they are prepared to kill their brothers in the country under attack.
People in the UK claim that all other minorities would fight for Britain and not side with their co-religious.
Here the example of a Jew is given who says that this question was discussed in his religious education classes and that they always unanimously decided that they would fight for Israel against Britain.
