Trevor Phillips’s documentary on Muslims was shocking – but not surprising

‘Our findings will shock many people,’ promised Trevor Phillips at the beginning of What British Muslims Really Think.

But the depressing thing is that I doubt they will, actually. I think the general British public have known for some time what Phillips’s documentary professed to find surprising: that large numbers of Muslims don’t want to integrate, that their views aren’t remotely enlightened, and that more than a few of them sympathise with terrorism. It’s only the establishment elite that has ever pretended otherwise.

Our political and chattering classes have created their own Wish-Dream Islam.

But really it’s just another variant of “The Big Lie”.

They are deliberately complicit in an effort to hide the truths of a disastrous immigration policy and the charade of multiculturalism.

They know they can’t hide behind those lies much longer.

No matter how much they scold or threaten.
