Our failure to confront radical Islam is there for all to see


Finally some one has been got courage from some where to put the whole sorry picture of the British Muslim problem. “Our failure to confront radical Islam” I got many Muslims as my close friends, through school, university and now in the workplace. Only few days we were discussing same problem at one dinner party and I felt disgust and even my Muslims friends felt disgust by understanding that we all are threatened by the ugly face of militant Islam. Thank you, Dennis McShane for providing such a clear and balanced view.

At long last, the debate on Islamism as politics, not Islam as religion, is out in the open. Two weeks ago, Jack Straw might have felt he was taking a risk when publishing his now notorious article on the Muslim veil. However, he was pushing at an open door. From across the political spectrum there is now common consent that the old multicultural emperor, before whom generation of politicians have made obeisance, is now a pitiful, naked sight.

The 10,000 Muslims in my constituency of Rotherham can only benefit from removing the dead hand of ideological Islamism – allowing their faith to be respected and their children to flourish in a Britain that finally wakes up to what must be done. Despite the efforts of extremists to prevent any sort of rational debate about the place of Islam in Britain, it is at last happening.

A fight-back is beginning to reclaim Britain from the grip of those who refuse to acknowledge the centrality of British values of tolerance, fair play and parliamentary democratic freedoms – notably those of free speech and respect for all religions, but supremacy for none. Voltaire noted this attribute of the English three centuries ago, when he wrote: “If there was just one religion in Britain there would be despotism. If two, there would be civil war. But as there are 30, they all live at peace with each other.”

  1. Eka,
    This sounds like good news. I hope it flushes out and things can actually begin to be turned around. I hate that everyone seems to think we must be afraid to speak our minds on this issue. Keeping fingers crossed.
