England could have been an Islamic State from the reign of King John

Good old King John of Magna Carta

In the early 13th century, John, King of England was under pressure after a quarrel with Pope Innocent III led to England being placed under an interdict, by which all forms of worship and other religious practices were banned. John himself was excommunicated, parts of the country were in revolt and there were threats of a French invasion.

Writing two decades after the events, Matthew Paris, a St Albans chronicler of the early thirteenth century, claims that, in desperation, John sent envoys to al-Nâsir asking for his help. In return John offered to convert to Islam and turn England into a Muslim state. Among the delegates was Master Robert, a London cleric. Al-Nâsir was said to be so disgusted by John’s grovelling plea that he sent the envoys away.

If that had happened, then Henry VIII could just have taken as many wives as he needed to take to sire an heir and a spare and a lot of heads would have stayed on people's shoulders.

Edward VIII would have been able to marry Mrs Simpson NO PROBLEM cos Muslims don't have such silly hypocritical hangups about divorce.

It is quite a thought, isn't it?

Perhaps it is not yet too late to become an Islamic State.

A wise man does at once what a fool does finally.

Heh heh.
