in response to reader comment: Muslim Schools

Submitted by Terry (European Union), Sep 23, 2007 at 16:45

Sorry, but I cannot agree with your conclusions. You appear to be advocating Urdu, if not Arabic as the medium of instruction for Muslim children at school in Britain. This country is English speaking. The plain fact is that when people decide to come here to live, for whatever reason they choose to do so; they should be prepared to embrace at least some of our culture, and that includes the language, which is English.

There is a plenitude of 'faith' schools, dedicated to Islam, and a mountain of evidence that Christian children are being taught virtually every other faith except their own. I realise that one of the pillars of your faith is to convert the host country. That 'decision' must be left to future generations. The conclusion is obvious. If you don't like it, don't come here. This applies even more to the growing number of imported Imams preaching hatred of the west. Once again if living in this country is not to your taste, there are other countries more suited to your way of life. No I am not criticising Islam. Islam is coming here, and criticising us.

There are many things I do not like about this society, but Sharia law is not one. If that is what you want, and as I say, I realise it is part of what you want, go elsewhere. The truth is you would get short shrift elsewhere, and you know it. You are subverting our very freedom of expression....Oh sorry, we don't have that any more, against us.
