UK sends begging letter to Imams: Be more British…please

Yea, that’ll work.

Eric Pickles writes to 1,100 imams and community leaders, urging them to tackle radicals and make young Muslims proud of Britain

But while the government’s letter is an attempt to remind Muslim leaders of their responsibilites to quell extremism, it runs the risk of being seen as divisive and angering Islamic leaders, with many Muslims feeling they have been unjustly associated with radicals.

In the letter Mr Pickles and Lord Ahmed, the communities minister, said imams must declare “more clearly than ever before” that Muslims should be proud to be British.
Young Muslims must be told that there are “other ways to express disagreement” and that jihadism has “nothing to offer them”.

    Signs of weakness abound.

    • It’s never ending. I think it’s dawning on the UK’s elite that maybe Muslim immigration wasn’t such a good idea after all.

        This letter has nothing to do with Islam.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Yeah, it does have certain downsides.

        nothing is dawning on them, what the UK’s elite need is a trip to the gallows….

      They surrendered. The pieces were put in place when they allowed this aggressive “religion” to move in.

    Pickles is in a pickle, and it isn’t even kosher.

  • WalterBannon

    A better approach would be to deport 1,100 imams and muslim community leaders… as a start.

  • Frau Katze

    Writing a letter: they’ll be terrified!

      They probably can’t even read it.
