Reader comment on item: Islamists, Get Out

Submitted by Mary (United Kingdom), Sep 1, 2005 at 18:31

If only our politicians would speak as clearly. The tone of the Muslims posting on here was the one we have come to expect in the UK too - it's all about rights and nothing to do with obligations - i.e. If I want to be different from everyone else, I jolly well can be and, as a matter of fact, some people have more rights than others - that's Muslims of course. In the fifties, immigrants in Britain were accepted, once the initial suspicion was got over, as long as they accepted the core values of the country. Multiculturalism has encouraged cultural apartheid and, of course, for a culture like Islamism which has both a superiority complex and a victim mentality, this is fine.
