DAILY MAIL COMMENT: Blind religion of the Church fuels asylum racket
One deeply disturbing facet within the case of suspected chemical attacker Abdul Ezedi is the complicity of the Church in Britain’s immigration racket.
The Afghan was granted asylum on his third try solely after a priest vouched he had transformed from Islam to Christianity – punishable by demise in his homeland.
So pathetically determined was a Baptist minister to help Ezedi’s utility for sanctuary right here, they appear to have ignored his intercourse crime convictions.
Troublingly, his case isn’t any one-off. Suicide bomber Emad Al Swealmeen, who blew himself up outdoors Liverpool Women’s Hospital in 2021, pulled off the identical trick.
And gullible vicars throughout the nation are enabling plenty of asylum seekers to transform – most, if not all, of them Muslim.

Of course, the Church of England and different denominations will insist this flock is real. That it represents a triumph of their efforts to unfold the phrase of the Lord. More doubtless, nevertheless, is that it’s cynical opportunism – a option to recreation a damaged system.
Indeed, we reveal at present how immigration judges have warned for a decade that asylum seekers are ‘fabricating’ conversions to strengthen bogus claims to remain within the UK.
With Ezedi’s alleged victims consigned to a lifetime of disfigurement, you would possibly suppose church leaders could be embarrassed by their position in letting terrorists and different harmful criminals into the nation.
Not a little bit of it. With self-important defiance, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby says: ‘We merely comply with the instructing of the Bible, which is to look after the stranger.’
Don’t blame us, he is saying. It’s the job of the Home Office and immigration tribunals to vet asylum seekers. While true, that is disingenuous. Clearly, a glowing reference from a priest shall be massively persuasive with whoever makes the selections.
The fact is, our prime clergy are hand-wringing liberals who imagine the asylum system is ungodly. That is why they caustically condemn each try and cease the boats.
The Church insists it needs to work with authorities to deal with the industrial-scale deception. If honest, it ought to begin by refusing to baptise any asylum seeker till their declare to remain right here is granted.
Fight for freedom
When Russian tanks rolled into Ukraine nearly two years in the past precisely, President Zelensky’s forces weren’t ready to comply with the script.

Of course, loads need Ukraine to sue for peace. But even when Russia ended hostilities in return for protecting its territorial positive factors, do the defeatists suppose it could fulfill Putin?
The tyrant claims he has no plans to assault Poland or the Baltic states, however he mentioned that about Ukraine simply weeks earlier than ordering his troops in. He cannot be trusted.
So America, Britain and the EU should maintain their nerve and proceed to ship arms to Kyiv. Not simply ample to extend the stalemate, however sufficient to win the conflict.
This is a combat for freedom. It is democracy versus evil autocracy. If Russia wins, it’s not simply Ukraine who loses – it’s all of us.
