Ken Livingstone in fool's paradise

Reader comment on item: My Debate with London Mayor Ken Livingstone

Submitted by Vijay (United Kingdom), Jan 29, 2007 at 11:05

Recently two new items have come which show how his Islamist buddies are far ahead of him in the game of world domination.

Item #1 http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/6308683.stm

Support for Sharia law, Islamic schools and wearing the veil is much stronger among younger Muslims, a poll for the centre-right Policy Exchange found.

The report's lead author, Munira Mirza, blamed government policy for a growing split between Muslims and non-Muslims.

She said ministers should engage with Muslims as citizens.

The survey of more than 1,000 Muslims from different age groups in the UK, found:

  • 71% of over-55s compared with 62% of 16 to 24-year-olds feel they have as much, if not more, in common with non-Muslims in Britain than with Muslims abroad
  • 19% of over-55s compared with 37% of 16 to 24-year-olds would prefer to send their children to Islamic state schools
  • 17% of over-55s compared with 37% of 16 to 24-year-olds would prefer living under Sharia law than British law
  • 28% of over-55s compared with 74% of 16 to 24-year-olds prefer Muslim women to choose to wear the hijab
  • 3% of over-55s compared with 13% of 16 to 24-year-olds admire organisations like al-Qaeda that are prepared to fight the West

Ms Mirza said the government should stop emphasising differences between Muslims and non-Muslims.

Item #2 http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,2087-2570067,00.html

Muslim urged to shun 'unholy' vaccines

Abul Taher

A MUSLIM doctors' leader has provoked an outcry by urging British Muslims not to vaccinate their children against diseases such as measles, mumps and rubella because it is "un-Islamic".

Dr Abdul Majid Katme, head of the Islamic Medical Association, is telling Muslims that almost all vaccines contain products derived from animal and human tissue, which make them "haram", or unlawful for Muslims to take.
Islam permits only the consumption of halal products, where the animal has had its throat cut and bled to death while God's name is invoked.

NI_MPU('middle'); Islam also forbids the eating of any pig meat, which Katme says is another reason why vaccines should be avoided, as some contain or have been made using pork-based gelatine.

Ken Livingstone's - and leftists'- head in the sand policy of an ostrich will lead to more violence from Islamists who gain more moral support from new generation of Muslims
