Enoch Powell once made a prescient remark about how the real long-term threat to Britain came from Asians rather than Africans. I have quoted this remark before on my other site, but recently I wanted to read the full speech in context. Just as I was about to order a book of Powell's speeches from an antiquarian book shop, I discovered a website (enochpowell.info) that actually offers all of Powell's speeches available for free download. Not only is the full text of the speeches available, but the printed texts from which Powell delivered the speeches, complete with handwritten notations and amendments, are reproduced, so you can get some sense of Powell's mind at work. The only downside of this is that the text is reproduced graphically so it is not easily searchable. In the "Eyes of Asia" speech, one thing struck me particularly. Powell said he could scarcely believe that the immvasion in 1971 was occurring at the rate of 40,000 per year. But 40,000 per year now seems hilariously low compared to what we have grown used to. 40,000 is now not even a monthly total, never mind a yearly total. 40,000 immvaders must now arriving every 2-3 weeks, never mind every year!

Here are a couple of extracts from Powell's "Eyes of Asia" speech, but it's worth exploring this website and reading his thoughts yourself. What a man he was.


Much as I admire, Powell, though, it does seem as though his comment about the "Eyes of Asia" related primarily to his perception of the scale of the Asian influx, compared to that of negroes, rather than some profounder insight into the threatening nature of Islam. I've been looking for any remarks he might have made specifically about the two symbiotic Oriental ideologies whose adherents are most threatening to Europe, namely Judaism and Islam, but so far haven't been able to find any.

    Australian Rabbi: Love Muslims and Everything Will Be OK

    Any assumption that Rabi Kastel is another Reform “rabbi” smoking The New York Times is dead wrong.

    Believe it or not, he is a strictly Orthodox rabbi born and raised in Brooklyn.

    He and his non-Jewish pals plan three major love events in Australia to rally Australian Muslims around the banner of love.
