The Deacon's Bench

The Deacon's Bench

Most popular boys’ name in Britain: Mohammed

And Damien Thompson has some reasons:

Is it a function of the scale of immigration from Muslim countries over the past decade? I’m sure that’s not the main factor. The answer, I suspect, lies in the findings of a poll by Policy Exchange in 2007:

Young British Muslims are much more likely than their parents to follow the rules of the Islamic religion, a think tank survey showed.

Support for Sharia law, Islamic schools and wearing the Hijab is much stronger among younger Muslims, according to the survey by the centre-right Policy Exchange.


The survey of more than 1,000 Muslims from different age groups in the UK, found:

• 71% of over-55s compared with 62% of 16 to 24-year-olds believe that they have as much, if not more, in common with non-Muslims in Britain than with Muslims abroad.

• 19% of over-55s compared with 37% of 16 to 24-year-olds would prefer to send their children to Islamic state schools.

• 17% of over-55s compared with 37% of 16 to 24-year-olds would prefer living under Sharia law than British law.

• 28% of over-55s compared with 74% of 16 to 24-year-olds prefer Muslim women to choose to wear the Islamic headscarf.

These religious young Muslims are more likely than their parents to name their boys after the man they (and the ever-respectful BBC) refer to simply as “the Prophet”. This is a function of the Islamification of Britain’s Pakistani community, which was encouraged by the last government to identify itself by faith rather than national background.

Wow! such information and facts! It makes me wonder if i am living in the same Britain that you are talking about. But to look on the bright side, at least its better than being taken over by Zionist and Catholic hypocrisy.

It’s a result of the stupidity of the host country. They deserve whatever comes of it.

This is also the result of the much higher birth rate amoung Muslims compared to the rest of the world’s population. Western civilization is dying-off while practicing Muslims continue to cherish children and family life. This is simply Natural Law being fulfilled.

@ Brian — you have no idea what Sharia law will bring to Britain with inane comments like that. English law is the basis for all fair minded countries. Britain will cease to exist. Imagine the King/Queen of England under Sharia law. Oh, well, I guess there are British who hate the UK just as their are citizens all over the world who despise their own countries.

All this data proves is that Islamist juveniles are effectively brainwashed by their religious and educational “leaders”. Mature adults in that “faith” are increasingly disaffected…..sounds like Obama voters. Same deal.
