London's Acid Test of Diversity

Things are going smashingly well in Londonistan.

The City of London has the highest murder rate in the land. While the authorities launch investigations into pork being left at a mosque or a hijab supposedly being torn off, crime continues to rise.

Gun control has worked so wonderfully well that gun crime in London rose 42%. When gun control advocates insist that we should be more like the UK, London’s 2,544 gun crime offenses probably aren’t what they have in mind.

But gun control does work in London after a fashion. Those gang members who can’t lay their hand on a firearm must make do with a sharp blade. Knife crimes in London rose 24% to 12,074 recorded offences. 60 people were stabbed to death last year.

Why? Here’s a hint from the Metropolitan Police’s assistant commissioner. “There are complex social reasons why more young people are carrying knives and this cannot be solved by the police alone.”

Those complex social reasons would seem to involve stabbing other people. But like Islamic terrorism, stabbings in London are one of those things that can’t be solved by the police. Unlike people saying mean things about Muslims on Facebook and Twitter which the Met cops are well equipped to solve.

Still the authorities have been doing their best to tackle stabbings with a knife ban. Carry a knife without a “good reason” and you can get four years in prison. Good reasons for carrying knives include using it as a prop in a production of Romeo and Juliet, taking it to a museum or “religious reasons”. The ban, which covers “sword-sticks”, samurai swords and “zombie knives” that are sold to fight zombies, isn’t working.

But it’s working well enough that many of the gangs responsible for the violence are turning to acid.

Acid attacks in London rose from 162 in 2012 to 454 last year. There have already been 199 acid attacks this year. Five acid attacks just happened in London in the space of little more than an hour.

And so the obvious new solution is drain cleaner control.

The push is on to “license” corrosive substances while banning anyone from carrying drain cleaner unless they have a good reason. When the public is banned from buying drain cleaners, then finally everyone in London will be safe. It’s worked for guns and knives. Bound to work for acid. And being stuck with a clogged toilet, like Allah Akbar car rammings, is the price we must all pay for diversity.

It’s easy to blame and ban inanimate objects. And it avoids any discussion of the perpetrators.

Newham is the London borough with the highest number of acid attacks. It also has the second highest percentage of Muslims in the UK. 398 acid attacks occurred in 5 years in the area named as “the most ethnically diverse district in England and Wales”. 33% of Newham consists of non-UK passport holders.

But surely that’s some sort of random coincidence.

Except that the place with the third highest number of acid attacks is Tower Hamlets. Tower Hamlets is a Muslim no-go zone. It has one of the smallest native British populations in the country. 35% of the population is Muslim. Most of those are Bangladeshis with a healthy sprinkling of Somalis.

There were 84 acid attacks in what has been dubbed “The Islamic Republic of Tower Hamlets”.

Also, entirely by coincidence, Bangladesh has the highest rate of acid attacks in the world. But if anyone suggests that these two statistics are related, the Met police will investigate them for hate crimes.

The second highest acid attack location in London was Barking and Dagenham, a growing Muslim enclave which elected its first Muslim mayor whose plans include holding an Islamic festival “for the whole community—regardless of religion”.

Barking is a wonderful place where you have the choice to be Muslim or Muslim. Regardless of religion.

The native British population made up 80% of Barking in 2001. Now it’s fallen to less than half. According to the 2011 census figures, "All religious groups have increased except for Christian and Jewish religions". This was where Islamists brandished signs reading, “British soldiers go to hell”.

Now why in the world might Barking be a haven for acid attacks?

Fifth on the acid list is Redbridge where the native British population fell by 40,844 in a decade. The last census showed British and Irish natives fleeing Redbridge while Pakistanis and Bangladeshis stormed in. The Christian and Jewish population fell while the Muslim population rose 11%. So did the acid attacks.

Pakistan has one of the highest rate of acid attacks in the world. It lags behind Bangladesh. But fortunately Redbridge boasts a diversity of both Pakistanis and Bangladeshis. And acid attacks.

But surely this is yet another unfathomable coincidence. Like 2 + 2 equaling 4.

Hackney, sixth on the list, was where a Sharia patrol pal of the Muslim beheaders of British soldier Lee Rigby, posted videos boasting “British people will never be safe on the streets of London.”

They certainly aren’t safe in Hackney.

At 14%, Islam is the second largest religious group in Hackney. The indigenous British population has fallen to 36%. That’s down from 44% in 2001. And, according to officials, it’s “reflective of Hackney’s increasing diversity which currently marks it out as the 6th most ethnically diverse borough in London after Newham, Redbridge, etc…”

Sixth in diversity and sixth in acid attacks.

Of the remaining four on the list, three, Croydon, Ealing and Hilingdon, were white minority or bare majority areas. Meanwhile Kensington and Chelsea, which have a decisive majority, have the lowest rate of acid attacks. So naturally the media has tried to blame the attacks on British natives.

But the numbers don’t lie.

London is experiencing a splash of the acid test of diversity. That burning feeling on your face is the thrilling sensation of corrosive multiculturalism eating away at British communities.

Banning guns, knives, drain cleaner, plungers and ostrich feathers won’t address the problem. The fallacy of gun control, knife control and acid control is that inanimate objects don’t kill people.

Guns don’t shoot themselves. Knives don’t unsheathe in broad daylight and stab pedestrians. Bottles of acid don’t knock on cars and then splash the occupants when they roll down the window.

Immigration imported acid attacks to the UK the way that it imported gangs of Muslim men stabbing waitresses in eateries while shouting, “This is for Allah”.

Allah and acid are both imports from the Muslim world.

Murders in London, like murders in most major American cities, are driven by gang violence. Behind the shootings, stabbings and acid attacks are gangs. Many of those gangs are made up of first and second generation migrants and settlers from the Muslim world. The UK’s prisons bulge with Muslim convicts. And these criminal gangs naturally feed recruits into Islamic terrorism as they do in Iraq and Syria.

Banning drain cleaner won’t stop acid attacks. Drain cleaner control is no solution. Migration control is.

Immigration from violent societies prone to terrorism is the acid that is eating away at Europe. Migration advocates have splashed acid on Britain, on America, on Australia and on Canada. The bombings and stabbings, the child rapes and acid attacks, are the burning sensation of the attack.

But the corrosive acid does its work in less sensational ways. When Britons no longer feel at home in their own communities, when mosques replace churches and synagogues, when Sharia patrols march through the streets, when English is drowned out by Urdu and Arabic in the streets, that is also the acid of immigration eating away at the flesh and bone of a nation.

Acid attacks don’t immediately kill. They maim and disfigure. Newham, Barking, Tower Hamlets and so much of London have been left maimed and disfigured so that longtime residents no longer know them.

Britannia has had acid splashed in her lovely face. Her clear features have been scarred and mutilated. Now, from London to Manchester, from Birmingham to Bradford, she suffers and burns.

    I think I've thanked you elsewhere for this brilliant article. On rereading, one small point that struck me, was that advocates of gun control, saying we should emulate London or various other locations, are anachronistic, referring to a London or a Sweden or wherever, that no longer exists. Now they are the ones that need to copy us, arming their police, and allowing law abiding citizens to defend themselves.

    Of course, Rudy Giuliani showed the way long ago. No revolutionary new ideas needed, just already well-known best practices.

  2. Infidel19/7/17

    Interesting that "increase in diversity" has become a new euphemism for "white flight".

  3. That is powerful.

  4. 1 - Pedantic I know, but when writing "The City of London" it means only the square mile which is mainly the financial district with only 12,500 residents, controlled by the Corporation of London. The correct phrase is "Greater London."

    2 - There is no indigenous British population as far as anyone can tell. London, founded by Roman invaders, has always been a city of immigration. But there is falling white population in Greater London, and Arabic shopfront writing is in abundance.

    3 - The acid attacks fall into two categories, which the mainstream media have yet to realise. There are a lot of Muslim acid attacks, mainly by rejected lovers etc. It is part of their culture.
    But the gang attacks are influenced by Jamaican gang culture, as well as being a response to police clamping down on gun ownership.

    4 - Tower Hamlets is a London Borough. There is a huge Bengali and Somali population in it, and their youths cause problems for sure. But it is not a "No-go area." I am there every week and walk and drive around without trouble. There are though, like most large cities, certain estates (projects) where one does not readily enter.

    1. Yeah... That should make people better...

  5. Anonymous20/7/17

    Violence by all means is intuitive to London's Muslims. No hesitation or remorse. Meanwhile, native English dither in the face of blatant murderous attack. Every predator recognizes weakness as an invitation to dinner. Enoch Powell was right.


  6. Nancy Assaf20/7/17

    Daniel, I hope that somehow your entertaining yet erudite article makes it's way to the Court judges who at every turn try to obfuscate the laws of immigration and the temporary travel ban that the President has ordered. In all honesty, however, I don't understand how our Govt. can realistically determine actual family members of these refugees. I mean, what? Do they carry birth certificates? Are the certificates even real?

  7. @LondonMale 'there is no indigenous British population as far as..' If I may quote from the Diversity Illusion by Ed West...

    At the end of the Second World War over 70% of British DNA dated back more than 6,000 years on these islands and between them the Celts, Anglo Saxons, Vikings and Normans made less of a genetic impact than post war immigration has. Genetically the generation born the year Britain hosted the 1948 Olympics may have been closer to the Britain of 4,000 BC, before work on Stonehenge was begun, than the generation born during the 2012 Olympic Games; the DNA of the British people has been changed more in one lifetime than in the previous 6,000 years.

    The sad state we are in!

  8. I lived in London when I was a kid. I used to adore the place. Now, I would not go there for all the gold in the world.

    I love it when people like LondonMale try to apologize for Islam by saying things like:" There are a lot of Muslim acid attacks, mainly by rejected lovers etc. It is part of their culture."

    And that is the culture that leftists and multiculturalists all over the world are falling over to bring into their countries. "Yes, by all means, let's introduce the custom of dousing your ex with acid when she throws you over. That'll teach her." I believe it's what the multiculturalists call "cultural enrichment." To paraphrase Scrooge, "I retired to bedlam."

    I will never understand this Western obsession with pandering to, apologizing for, bending over to, and generally justifying the horror that is Islam. I mean, it's one thing to be compassionate towards the needy, no matter where they come from. But this totally subservient attitude to Islam by Western world lefties and multiculturalists; this hysteria they go into whenever anyone makes the slightest criticism of Islam - just to name two things - is simply not normal.

    Which begs the question, what's it all (REALLY) about? Some say the extermination of the white race. Others say it's reparations for perceived past imperialistic transgressions. And others allude to the obliteration of Western culture because it's a symbol of the afore-mentioned imperialism, of white supremacy, etc., etc.

    I used to laugh at all that and call it conspiracy theories of the most pronounced description. Now, I am not so sure. Sherlock Holmes said it better, "When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth."

    In any case, this world has gone bonkers, and personally, I am glad I am not young anymore. I am even gladder that I never had children. I would not want my daughter to be forced to wear a burka and risk having acid sloshed on her by a disgruntled ex suitor. In my book, that sort of thing should NEVER be part of any civilization worthy of the name.

  9. LondonMale?... picking nits while Rome burns.It's getting harder and harder to not surrender to Nihilism.

  10. @ Pat D. What you say makes sense as I seem to recall that people often referred to Brits as "inbred", i.e. not a great deal of genetic mixing due to being an island population etc...

  11. Clorinda

    You have libelled me.

    My comments of acid attacks being a part of Islamic culture, which I must specify, I meant Pakistani and Anglo-Pakistani culture, are a critcism of said culture.
    Neither am I left wing.


    If I read an article which contains inaccuracies, it is fair game to correct the inaccuracies. especially when it is written by someone outside of London commenting on what happens in London.

  12. Mario Ciani20/7/17

    You've got it all wrong, people.

    Just fall into line, imbibe the new koranic kulture.
    As the esteemed mayor has already reminded you (I freely paraphrase): London is a global city, stuff happens, get used to it [sarcasm totally intended].

  13. When Judeo-Christian/Western/Human civilization's governance has been allowed to fall into the hands of the Malignantly Envious and that gang's effective hesperophobia has effected its treasonous "weaponization" of migration and the replacement of ordered immigration and mandated assimilation with alien invasion and hostile colonization?

    Who will be the modern Edward Gibbon?

    And, more importantly in this, headed-one-way-into-a-new-Dark-Ages, post-Christian era?

    Who will be Left who can - let alone may - read?

    Brian Richard Allen

  14. .... that sort of thing should NEVER be part of any civilization worthy of the name ....

    And, New York City to a single brick, on? It never will.

    B A.: - L A - CA -- and The Very Far Away

  15. .... I will never understand (the fascist-Left's) obsession with pandering to, apologizing for, bending over to, and generally justifying the horror that is Islam ....

    Malignant-Envy-driven, self, own-culture and inevitably and invariably, own-species-loathing. Effective Psychopathic Hesperophobia.

    I can only imagine how mass Moslem migration to an area affects rents and property values. Of course that in turn only makes it easier for more Moslem migration to those areas -- thus cementing it's status as a Shari'a compliant neighborhood. A civilisation busily heaping up its own funeral pyre certainly describes Northwestern Eurabia as well as North America in the 21st century.
    Thank you for this article Mr. Greenfield.

  17. Now the British government wants to impose heavy penalties on people who throw acid. Ironically, there was a time when throwing acid was a capital offense punishable by hanging.

  18. Just a common 'tater21/7/17

    Thank you Daniel for posting this. I suspected there was connection between the acid attacks and the cultural enrichment going on in Greater London.

    Clorinda: I suspect that the leftists and so-called progressives are so supportive of these invaders from the hell-holes run by the religion we dare not name because they hate everything Western Europe, the USA, and certain commonwealth countries became. We disprove, by our mere existence that the socialist/communist utopias are really police and slave states. So, I suspect that they support those that would destroy us while thinking that leftists & progressives will rush in to fill the void after we beat each other to pieces.

    Nancy: You hit the nail on the head. In many of these third world countries, even ones that we think are more advanced and westernized, some cash under the table will buy you just about any document you need saying what you need it to say. Birth certificate? No problem. Police report showing no criminal history? Got it. Public records report showing no previous marriage or a dead spouse, annulment, or divorce? Name it, you got it. Need an embossed and raised seal? Sure thing.

    We are the exception to the rule. We have rule of law, and in theory at least, all are equal under the law and there are no short cuts or favorites. Outside of these few countries, graft, corruption, nepotism, and elitism are the SOP.

  19. Infidel22/7/17

    Very good and clever double entendre in the title, by the way.

  20. The Brits, and French and Germans and Swedes are in a real bind. Since 1948, and even more so since 1967, they have all reiterated that Islamic violence is actually the struggle for freedom from the malevolent clutches of Political Zionism. Not judaism of course. judaism is cannonized since the white-engendered holocaust , but Zionism. the political expression of jewish self-determination, is certainly evil, exonerating all violence directed at it. So now, when the very same is applied to them, with the very same reasoning, they find it difficult not to absolve it in the same manner. Even the leftist hare-brained is unable to say "to kill the Zionist is fine but to kill white post colonnial me is not. Western Europe has bitten its own bait, and is now dragged to extinction with its own reel of lies and Jew-hatred. It is no coincidence that resistance to Islamization among non-Jews goes hand in hand with appreciation for the fight Zionism has put up against this evil ideology. London must suffer for its perfidy which encouraged the Nazis to eliminate the Jews - and it does, and its only the bare beginnings.

  21. the DNA of the British people has been changed more in one lifetime than in the previous 6,000 years.
    43 years ago I lived in England for a couple of years as a teen ager. Coming from a former rebelious colony, Israel, to an English Grammar School, I was assigned a sixth form mentor. He was tall, impeccably dressed in school shirt, tie and jacket (Wallingford) and ebony-black. He was more English than the English, and treated me with thinly veiled superiority evinced by the unschooled. I did not cause much trouble, and he went on to Oxford. It is not the DNA which makes the Englishness. Its the Culture, and the English are allowing their culture to rot from within.

  22. Anonymous23/7/17

    Perhaps it's time for an old fashion EXORCIST. This make's me want to walk down the streets of London dressed as a priest Throwing Holy Water on these EVIL Zombies. :)

  23. Clorinda (20/07/2017) an excellent comment. Until 5 years ago I went along with the prevailing "Religion of Peace" mantra, because I believed that Islam was an Abrahamic "religion" with very similar origins to Christianity and Judaism.

    However, my son started dating a wonderful Muslim girl (whose family immediately disowned her) and then ISIS happened. Our Politicians and Church Elders (such as The Pope) constantly intoned that "Islam was a Religion of Peace" and that there was a corrupted version of Islam doing the rounds. I was curious and tried my very best to read about the Qur’an and Hadiths and in doing so was absolutely stunned.

    Erdogan has said - there is no such thing as moderate and fundamental Islam only moderate and fundamental muslims. That is the truth.

    The Left (I used to be extreme Left) supports Islamist multiculturalism because their ideologies superficially share similar goals such as the destruction of The West (which is based upon "corrupt" Judeo-Christian" values), and open borders under one Government. The Left and their media allies intends using the Islamist as their agents to destroy us and at which point The Left will take over.

    In their dreams! The Islamists love death because it is the only way that they can surely gain Paradise. They will devour The Left alive as soon as they can.

    For once I am glad to be towards the end of my life because we are now on the cusp of WWIII aided and abetted by a compliant Establishment (Political, Religious and Media) who seem to believe that by appeasing Islam that the beast will eventually be tamed.

    Their prophet said that he had spread Islam through terror - terror works.
    I am now afraid to visit London. I have medical appointments there which I continually reschedule because I feel so uncomfortable there. Mr Corbyn and his Marxist friends seem to rejoice in the situation.

  24. D.D.Mao23/7/17

    Perhaps this can explain things:

    The Right distrust the Middle East

    The Left distrust the Middle Class

  25. @Stacey Gordon - 'inbred'. I did read once that if you are a true British person then you are distantly related to everyone else of the same status. I can believe this. It is only in the last century or so that people have been able to move around the world en masse. Nevertheless it never stopped us being the most successful nation of all time at one point with a population a fraction of what it is now. Those were the days as they say.

  26. .... It is not the which makes the Englishman, its the Culture. And the English have allowed their culture to rot from within ....

    Same was true for the product of the American Melting Pot. E pluribus unum. We own no "magic dirt." Being American is not an accident of birth nor the consequence of one having traveled here. It's a state of mind. As this former immigrant, (and as the consequence entitled-to-hyphenation) AMERICAN-American, knows well.

  27. .... the "white-engendered" Holocaust ....

    Of 100% Gael/Celt descent, I am often suspected and/or accused of being "white." But am not, thank God, German -- nor Austrian -- nor any of those other, as-awful, Holocaust-assistant Europeons. And would (and especially while we're talking about Culture) appreciate responsibility for the Holocaust being more closely laid at the feet of those who perpetrated it!

  28. Dr. Yuval. Your description of the black sixth former that you met is a very narrow, stereotypical view of being English. The black student was just mirroring a particular aspect. If I adopted Israeli culture would I be viewed as Israeli? Culture runs deep, I could never be Israeli and the black student was not English.

  29. PatD: With respect to the assimilated "black" Englishman, it's likely fair to say that his presence in England and that of several million other folk of every imaginable hue and color and multiculturally-guaranteed-to-be-separate-but-equal ethnicity is evidence (apart from and in addition to every other) there is no more "England." And never will be.

    Israel, on the other hand, has always welcomed immigrants of every imaginable hue and color and has gone to great lengths to see to their assimilation -- and remains Israel. Pretty much as America used to, when Theodore Roosevelt's influence (as expressed below) was still felt in the land:

    QUOTE: “In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American and nothing but an American … There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag … We have room for but one language here and that is the English language -- and we have room for but one sole loyalty -- and that is a loyalty to the American People.” END QUOTE.

    -- Theodore Roosevelt 1907

  30. @Pat D...
    Alas, while there may have been a smaller gene pool for the British, there is no genetic predisposition to being "American".
    Whereas, you could move to France, learn perfect French and perhaps even become a French citizen, but you could never hope to become a "Frenchman".
    But America is different. America is an idea. Perhaps there is nothing and no one more American than a legal immigrant taking the oath of citizenship.
    America is a nation of people who "became" Americans because "America" is not about who your parents are, or what your genes are, but what your ideals and values are.
    America IS a nation of immigrants who, at one time in our history, held these notions precious. And while it has not been a perfect place, for some, it is a place that worked to become better. They came from all over the world, from different cultures because of what they held in common-the desire to be free and to become part of the of the great experiment. The current flow of immigrants (with some exceptions) hold no such values dear. They are not coming here to become part of this nation, to contribute to its glory; they are here to conquer, to drain it dry, and while doing so, to make it more like the hell hole nations they left behind.

    1. Exactly. And our demise is a new cancer from within.

  31. @Brian Richard Allen and @ Stacey Gordon....I agree with most of what you both say. I read quite a lot on the internet now as the MSM are left biased beyond belief, you cannot get an organisation more anti British than the BBC. It would seem that most European countries now face 'extinction' if that is not too strong a word. Even in America it seems that California will soon be Spanish speaking. Some American views I have read have already written the State off. I never used to believe in conspiracy theories but some group or other has been conspiring against us all for a very long time. In pessimistic mode I agree with your view, Stacey Gordon, that we, Europe and America, will be 'more like the hell hole nations they left behind'.

  32. .... America is different. America is an idea. Perhaps there is nothing and no one more American than a legal immigrant taking the oath of citizenship ....

    Spot on. I became an American by state of mind, in that I comprehended and loved the Declaration before I was five. My qualifying for "hyphenated status" occurred much later, when I was naturalized -- and, on the Very Best Day Of My Life, became an AMERICAN-American!

    I'd respectfully beg to differ about America being and/or having ever been a "nation of immigrants," though. We are a nation of the assimilated. The product of the Melting Pot. E pluribus unum. From many ONE!

    Does it work? Many of those who fought in World Wars One and Two spoke English with with thick German and other European accents -- and Japanese. The 442nd Infantry Regiment, composed almost entirely of American soldiers of Japanese ethnicity. was the bravest and most decorated unit for its size and length of service in the history of American warfare.

  33. @Brian Richard Allen: "Immigrant"... well I guess that word doesn't mean what it used to mean. They had to get here first, in order to assimilate, so I thought that made them immigrants, but yes, we must be assimilated. I have often thought about the WWII situation you describe. Many German and Italian, Japanese immigrants as well as 1st generation enlistees fought in their ancestral homes for the idea of what they had become. Pretty amazing. Now, just the opposite occurs.

    Besides the Native Indians, Calif. was Spanish speaking since it belonged to Mexico until 1848, with the signing of the, Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo.

    Might as well be part of Mexico these days, since in many areas you will hear Spanish more than English. 'Mexifornia', as some people call it.

    Many people use the phrase, 'no-one is illegal', meaning anyone should be able to come here if they feel like it, illegal or not. It's so darn godly to be so progressive you know.

    And shame on 'white' people for being so horrible to the Indians and Mexicans. 'White' people of European ancestry should keep feeling terribly ashamed and just role over and play dead, since they are from immigrant stock too. How dare they make rules about legality.

    It's no conspiracy. It's all been quite out in the open for a long time.

    State politicos are making California a 'sanctuary state', Ugh!

    Viva Mexifornia!
