‘Are English schools being taken over by Islamic extremists?’

Catholic World News - June 18, 2014

Five out of 21 schools recently inspected by the government in Birmingham, Great Britain’s 2nd-largest city, are now in danger of closure because of “a particular and narrow faith-based [Muslim] ideology,” according to a Christian Science Monitor report.

“Some of our findings are deeply worrying and in some ways quite shocking,” said the head of the Ofsted schools inspectorate at a press conference. “In the most serious cases, a culture of fear and intimidation has taken grip.”

    When the Hebrews fell away from obedience to God they were taken over by another culture. The Babylonians, the Medes and Persians, the Greeks, and then the Romans. Human nature hasn't changed since Adam and Eve, and since we fail to learn the lessons of history we are doomed to repeat the same mistakes. England practiced birth control and abortion, departed from the faith, and let the Muslims into the country to do the work for the old, and now they are reaping what they have sown.
