How moderate are moderate Muslims?

There is an ocean between what British Muslims believe and what the rest of us believe

‘What’s in the news this week?’ I asked my wife as she browsed the first newspaper we had seen for a whole week, having hitherto been blissfully disconnected from the rest of the country, without phones or the internet.

‘Muslims, largely,’ she replied, flicking from page to page, ‘a bit on in-and-out, but mainly it’s the Muslims.’ Oh, good. A perpetual optimist, I had rather hoped that during our week away the frequently promised Islamic Reformation might have taken place and peace and enlightenment spread all those many miles from the jungles of Banda Aceh to the dilapidated terraces of Kirklees. But nope, apparently not.

They were still up to their stuff, a good few of them.

    There is an ocean between what British Muslims believe and what the rest of us believe … and the ocean will remain as long as we believe what they say.

    • I do not expect our political and chattering classes to ever willingly admit to the mistake of mass Islamic immigration.

      We’ll have to force it out of them.

    “[I]nciting them to acts of” Islamic piety, not extremism.

        Yes, and it makes me want to puke when some dhimmi idiot will equate Mo with the likes of Jesus or Moses or Buddha. Jesus, for example, brought a 9 year old girl back from the dead. Mo “married” one.

          The islamic world sees all as having been born muzlim.
          Converts to islam are called reverts.
