The Islamisation of Birmingham

there are actual cities like Birmingham that are totally Muslim

where non-Moslems just simply don’t go

Steve Emerson, Terrorism Expert, on Fox News

 

Most reckon it was the day Ozzy Osbourne

walked out the gates of Winson Green Prison,

ready to commit acts of musical terrorism

in a desperate effort to undermine Christ,

that the City began turning instead

to Mecca. All agree

 

the situation grew

more serious each time Roy Wood sang:

I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday

in the hope we wouldn’t notice

the big mad beard he got

at a training camp in Pakistan.

 

Spaghetti Junction was already

jammed with Moslem only vehicles,

the night the Mulberry Bush

and Tavern in the Town

were blown up by Moslems

disguised as IRA men.

Since then every nil all draw

between Aston Villa and Birmingham City

has been celebrated by stadiums half full

of nothing but Moslems.

 

Truth is, it started way back,

the night Chamberlain signed

his secret treaty with Adolf, agreeing

in the event of war with Russia, to hand

the birthplace of Enoch Powell

over to the Islams.

 

These days the local economy is mostly

Jaguar Cars and Cadbury’s chocolate

being secretly manufactured by Moslems

for export to terrorist countries busy

thinking up new ways to kill us.

slaughtered by the United States Army’s 7th Cavalry. As many as 300 Native American men, women, and children lost their lives. The dead were thrown into a mass grave.
