  1. Good, until we can neutralise these threats from far right losers there is no choice but to have these places guarded. They complain about the left so much but don't realise they are way, way more stupid than them

  2. I meant out of the major ones. That's why I listed them in order of numbers. I don't know why Judaism is considered major considering it's only like 15 million as they say. I agree it's an important religion but I wouldn't call it major just due to it's population.

  3. Dole-bludging whinging pom..Blaming your unemployment and alcoholism on Muslims.As for no Creator? Dreary hole like England to live in, I'm not surprised as He didn't leave much in the way of natural beauty for you to wonder at..Wheres the fossil proof of evolution? If 1 animal changed to another, wheres the fossils of these half-changed/quarter-changed animals then? Theres none! The theory of evolution is not congruent with fossil records. AllahuAkbar,Bismillah al-rahman,al-raheem.AllahuAkbar..

  4. Israel (The false one that came about in 1948) is to blame for many things. However, I don't blame them for whats happening in Syria at all. I can smell their hand in a few things, though apart from the 3 illegal airstrikes in Syrian territory, there isn't much proof of anything else. But then, fighting above board isn't really their style. Zionists are more rat-cunning than brave and stupid. Thats where the USA comes in handy…

  5. Interesting how you project your lack of knowledge and intelligence on to me. I would suggest that you educate yourself before you expose your ignorance. If you are Muslim…TAKE OFF THE BLINDERS!

  6. After all that's gone on these agency employers are still employing religious terrorists people over me. F&%king freaks don't even deserve the jobs and once again THERE IS NO GOD you weirdos look at the big bang image on google if you cant be parsed reading about it. FREAKS, its only a humans mind that can believe such codswallop as god. Scruffy freaks.

  7. I went to the jobcentre today and the religious Islamic PakistanI has been threatening my dole pay saying I haven't done enough looking for work. The government department of working pensions the dole office decision maker in Bradford no doubt a Islamic trouble maker is making the decisions on MY DOLE KNOW. The dole office and police are cheeky as &%ck allowing my dole my only source of income to be stopped for employing all these religious people. there is no god YOU SETIN ME UP

  8. The word love doesn't go with USA or Israel. 'Specially how the US is being used by the zionists for it's military and it's citizens taxes..Lol the Yanks are being shit on and raped by the zionists and they don't even know it..Not the vast majority anyway..You can tell a real American, the American that everybody want's to be, is one who sees right through Israels shit and don't feel human life is worth less than oil.

  9. And Jesus Christ spent all his time with his 12 apostles..Even converted a know prostitute to join in case he got bored i guess…Let alone the fact that he claimed his mother was still a virgin after he was born..I call it date rape..His father got only sloppy seconds on his wedding night…

  10. I love how people are scared of a group that make up only 5% of the uk population. I don't think there's gonna be any "islamification" happening here.

  11. Mohammed (peace be upon him, lol just joking) was a pedophile who married a 9 year old girl, just saying but its in the Qu'ran, if Im an infidel for not supporting polygamism, pedophilia and machism then Im a proud infidel

  12. Europe has been supporting Radical Islamist that fight Secular Governments all over the Middle East, namely the NATO/US support to the Al-Qaeda FSA terrorist in Syria

    you only have yourself to blame
