MUSLIMS UNFIT TO SERVE? By David Vance Do you think that Muslims can serve our Nation and occupy positions of importance? I do. Today brings a story concerning an experienced Muslim firearms officer who has begun race and religious discrimination proceedings against the Metropolitan Police after he was removed from a close-protection unit guarding senior dignitaries, including Tony Blair. Amjad Farooq, 39, a father of five, was told he was a threat to national security because his children had attended a mosque associated with a Muslim cleric linked to a suspected terrorist group. Well, I don't wish to comment on this specific case for obvious reasons BUT in general, I would believe that the Metropolitan Police shoud be very mindful to ensure that no such links - or potential links - to Islamic terror amongst these senior squads of officers. It's precautionary and it's common sense. Naturaly the whole "Muslims are discriminated against" bandwagon has kicked off following this news. Sorry, I have no sympathy for this faux argument. We know that there are militant Islamists living amongst us in the UK who seek to kill as many of us as possible. See this news story to get an idea as to what some Muslim extremists have in mind. The Muslim Council of Britain continues to do a great disservice to the many decent Muslims living here as it screeches its usual refrain about how the British Muslim community is so hard done by.
