Trust the Queen’s Judgement

Frankly, I would far rather trust the Queen’s judgment on what is good for this country than that of any temporary politician who chooses to play the game of running it, declared   Simon Heffer in his regular London Daily Telegraph column on 19 November, 2005.

He recalled that Ayman al-Zawahiri had, on behalf of al-Qa’eda, “delivered a ferocious denunciation of one of his and his movement’s most bitter enemies: that well-known zealot and extremist Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II”

Al-Zawahiri had named The Queen as one of the "severest enemies of Islam", and had accused her of being responsible for what he called Britain’s "crusader laws".

Simon Heffner decided to “let pass the detailed knowledge of the British constitution that such remarks indicate Mr al-Zawahiri manifestly doesn’t have.”

What he found wonderful was that the threat seemed, almost unprecedentedly, to have “stirred The Queen into one of those defences of the Faith that figure so prominently in her (British) job description.”

Her Majesty recently addressed “her fellow extremists in the Synod”, that is a synod of the Church of England .

There , Her Majesty celebrated the "uniqueness" of the Christian faith, and spoke of Her "conviction that all people, irrespective of race, background or circumstances, can find lasting significance and purpose in the Gospel of Jesus Christ".

This is indeed a forthright affirmation of The Queen’s strong personal faith.
