Western politicians are in denial about Islam.

**
Western politicians have got themselves into a fix with Islam because they have allowed far too many Muslims into the West for economic reasons, paying scant regard to the long-term consequences of their actions, paying little regard to the propensity of Muslims to integrate into our societies, and paying no regard to the wishes of the electorate.
It is my belief that most politicians know exactly how Muslims think, yet they are singularly unwilling to admit fault, admit error, admit they were wrong to allow so many Muslims into the West. They are also unwilling to state, categorically, that Muslims need to abide by our liberal, democratic laws. In brief, they are running scared. The electorate is being sold down the river as a result of the craven actions of our politicians. And who, in recent years, have been more craven than George W Bush and Tony Blair?
The fact of the matter, as I have stated time and time again, is that Islam is not a religion in the Western sense at all. Islam is a total way of life. Islam, if it is anything, is politics. Indeed the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini stated as much when he said: "Islam is politics or it is nothing." Who can argue with the Ayatollah on such matters?

Islam: The Theocratization of Politics
Politics in the Western world is broadly characterized by the term liberal democracy. Liberal democracy combines the right to be governed representatively. In a liberal democracy, there is universal adult suffrage, and political equality for all people. Those elected to high office are entrusted with the protection of the individual’s liberties, the individual’s freedom of speech, the individual’s freedom of assembly, the individual’s freedom to choose his religion or indeed his right not to choose one at all, the individual’s right to private property, the individual’s right to privacy, the individual’s right to self-determination, and the individual’s equality before the law, under the rule of law. Increasingly, the West has moved in the direction of giving the individual equality before the law, regardless of sexual orientation.
Politics in the Islamic world, by contrast, is very different. Muslims consider themselves to be superior to non-Muslims, or al-Kuffar, in all respects...
