Mask of Muslim moderation lifted

Reader comment on item: More Survey Research from a British Islamist Hell

Submitted by Vijay (United Kingdom), Aug 12, 2006 at 05:53

So far, Muslim leaders including Labour party MPs, Mosque preachers and sundry mullahs were complaining that discrimination against Muslims by non-Muslims was the cause of extremism and Jihadism. Then the moaning turned to "deprivation" of Muslims i.e. poverty, illiteracy , etc were the cause of Jihadism and hatred of West and anything non-Muslim. That was trotted out as the "root cause" of suicide bombers in the west and elsewhere. All the time extremist Muslim youth , firebrand preachers were always justifying their jihadism on the best of Western "atrocities on Muslims" in Bosnia, Chechniya, Kashmir, and other places.

Now the entire Muslim social and political leaders have joined the extremists in atrocity-mongering by declaring that British foreign policies which are the reason for suicodal Muslim violence and Al-Qauda. So much for the "Moderate Muslims".

British Muslim groups have written to the prime minister calling for "urgent" changes to UK foreign policy.

"Whether we like it or not such a sense of injustice plays into the hands of extremists," he said

Other signatories include the Muslim Association of Britain, British Muslim Forum and the lobby group, the Muslim Parliament of Great Britain
