A poll shows the Brit elite’s appeasement of Islamofascists has turned the Brit people against Muslims in general. Unless it changes course, Brits will take matters into their own hands and innocents will suffer.
In our recent visit to London we noticed two disturbing developments:
– a significant increase in the number of head-to-toe veiled Muslims walking the streets
– the waves of distaste (side comments, hard looks, body langauge, bumping) they evoked in the crowds of Brits they walked through.
A year ago, there were less veils, and no distaste.
This anecdotal experience is accurate:
Britons are more suspicious of Muslims than Americans and other Europeans are, according to a poll for the Financial Times.
Only 59 per cent of Britons thought it possible to be both a Muslim and a citizen of their country, a smaller proportion than in France, Germany, Spain, Italy or the US – the other countries polled by Harris Interactive.
British citizens were also the most likely to predict a “major terrorist attack” in their country in the next 12 months; to consider Muslims “a threat to national security”, and to believe Muslims had too much political power in their country…
The findings suggest that terrorist plots against the UK, including the London bombings of July 7 2005, have hardened British attitudes towards Muslims. Osama Saeed of the Muslim Association of Britain blamed the findings on what he called “a vicious campaign” by the press against the Muslim community.
Most British respondents – 52 per cent – expected a “major terrorist attack” in their country within a year. Even in Spain where the Basque extremist group Eta has recently abandoned a ceasefire, only 32 per cent predicted a big attack. The numbers fell to 30 per cent in the US and 15 to 18 per cent in France, Italy and Germany.
The Brits are being rational – they see Muslims inciting terror being protected by cops, pols and judges, while living in taxpayer-funded comfort. So they deduce the terror-inciters can do as they promise.
So they (correctly) use Bayesian logic to decide their best bet is to treat all Muslims they don’t know as potential murderers.
As the article points out, the Spanish – who suffered a bigger Muslim mass murder than 7/7 – think their Muslims are less a threat to national security. That’s because the Spanish government has fought actively against terrorists, not protected them.
The Brits are a very tolerant people, so all is not lost:
However, on more personal measures of integration – having Muslim friends and accepting the marriage of their child to a Muslim – Britons showed more enthusiasm than some other countries.
But if the pols, cops and judges continue to appease Muslim terror, the Brits will become actively hostile.
I’d guess they have a year.
