Geller: It means Sharia for Britain, and the election of Lutfur Rahman is a significant step in that direction. The IFE says that its agenda is to change the “very infrastructure of society, its institutions, its culture, its political order and its creed… from ignorance to Islam.”

Even the way they got Rahman elected was redolent of life in a Sharia state. The Telegraph reported that Lutfur Rahman supporters were hanging around polling places all over the borough, scolding Muslim women if they were wearing what the Islamic supremacists thought was “immodest dress.” And a major player in the Labour Party in Tower Hamlets said after Rahman was elected that Tower Hamlets “really is Britain’s Islamic republic now.”

In my New York Times interview here, I repeated what I have said and thought for some time — that the first country that will be Islamic in Europe will be the United Kingdom. This terrible election victory just validates my prediction.
