    Young, British Muslims 'getting more radical'

    A bleak picture of a generation of young British Muslims radicalised by anti-Western views and misplaced multicultural policies is shown in a survey published today.

    The study found disturbing evidence of young Muslims adopting more fundamentalist beliefs on key social and political issues than their parents or grandparents.

    Forty per cent of Muslims between the ages of 16 and 24 said they would prefer to live under sharia law in Britain, a legal system based on the teachings of the Koran. The figure among over-55s, in contrast, was only 17 per cent.

    In some countries, people found guilty under sharia law face penalties such as beheading, stoning, the severing of a hand or being lashed.

    The study, by the Right-wing think-tank Policy Exchange, also found a significant minority who expressed backing for Islamic terrorism.

    One in eight young Muslims said they admired groups such as al-Qa'eda that "are prepared to fight the West".

    Turning to issues of faith, 36 per cent of the young people questioned said they believed that a Muslim who converts to another religion should be "punished by death." Among the over 55s, the figure is only 19 per cent.

    Three out of four young Muslims would prefer Muslim women to "choose to wear the veil or hijab," compared to only a quarter of over-55s.

    Support was also strong for Islamic schools, according to the Populus survey of 1,000 people commissioned by Policy Exchange.

    Forty per cent of younger Muslims said they would want their children to attend an Islamic school, compared to only 20 per cent of over-55s.

    Britain's foreign policies were a key issue among the Muslim population as a whole, with 58 per cent arguing that many of the world's problems are "a result of arrogant Western attitudes". However, knowledge of foreign affairs was sketchy, with only one in five knowing that Mahmoud Abbas was the Palestinian president.

    The findings emerged as David Cameron, the Conservative leader, criticised the Government for trying to "bully" immigrant communities into feeling British by telling them to run up the Union flag in their gardens or spy on their children.

    But in a speech today, Mr Cameron will warn the Muslim community that it cannot use the "screen of cultural sensitivity" to deny women their rights.

    The Policy Exchange report, Living Together Apart: British Muslims and the Paradox of Multiculturalism — says there is strong evidence of a "growing religiosity" among young Muslims, with an increasing minority firmly rejecting Western life.

    Munira Mirza, the broadcaster and one of the authors of the report, argued that multicultural policies pursued by the Government had succeeded in making things worse, rather than better.

    She said: "The emergence of a strong Muslim identity in Britain is, in part, a result of multi-cultural policies implemented since the 1980s which have emphasised difference at the expense of shared national identity and divided people along ethnic, religious and cultural lines.

    "There is clearly a conflict within British Islam between a moderate majority that accepts the norms of British democracy and a growing minority that does not."

    The report also raises questions about the scale of the problems created by Islamophobia, with 84 per cent of those questioned saying they believed they had been "treated fairly" in Britain.

    There was also criticism of the decision by some councils to ban Christian symbols in case they offended Muslims or other communities.

    Three quarters said it was wrong for a council to have banned an advert for a Christmas carol service.

    Shahid Malik, the Muslim Labour MP for Dewsbury, said: "This report makes very disturbing reading and it vindicates the concern many of us have that we're not doing enough to confront this issue."

    Baroness Uddin, the Muslim peer, said: "Unlike their parents, our young people feel that this is their country and are saying why are we being told we do not belong here.

    "There is also a problem of a lack of opportunities. Some people have been brutalised by their experiences with the police and this war on terror."

    In his speech in Birmingham today, Mr Cameron will criticise "simplistic" attempts at community cohesion, such as Gordon Brown's call for people to put up the Union flag.

    But he will also challenge elements of the Muslim community for denying women access to work, education, politics and even to mosques.

    In a move that will please the Tory Right, Mr Cameron will warn that urgent action must be taken to get a grip of an immigration system that is out of control.

    "It's the same whether it's the white grandmother worried about groups of asylum seekers or an unemployed Sikh youngster who sees eastern Europeans filling all the jobs.

    "The Government needs to be in control of the situation. We can only live together if there is proper integration.

    "And you can't have proper integration if people are coming into Britain at a faster rate than we can cope with."
  2. Older Britons want them to f*ck off
  3. If I go to someone else's country I live by there rules, if this lot cant live by ours I suggest they pack up and fcuk off.
  4. When will the government learn. If these people want these laws send them to a country that has them and deny them access back into the uk. I am fed up of these lunatics playing the down trodden in our society. It is the fact that they wont mix in that causes the problems. Can you imagine going to pakistan and the like and demanding churches to be built, to ignore dress codes etc. They would burn you as a heratic. Question. Why is it the white population of this country the only group without a community leader? To finish with, if you don't like it here then bugger off and don't come back. You won't be missed.
  5. If anyone wants to live their lives in accordance with Sharia Law, then I hear that Saudi Arabia is just the place.
  6. How about a compromise? English rule of law, couple with Sharia punishments...?
  7. On the other hand, it would solve the prison crisis if we started chopping hands off and flogging and stoning.
  8. I say go for it! I'm with "4(T)" on this one. If a Muslim gets caught stealing, chop his hand off. If they want stonings and beheadings for their own people, let them.

    The rest of us can live under the British system of living the life of Riley in jail with colour TV's, hot water, pool tables and the right to sue the gummint if we are denied the right to get off our faces on heroin in nick.

    The only problem I can see with this is that the Prophet Mohammed (on whom Sharia law is based) liked to screw little girls (he married one that was 9 years old). I don't some dirty paedo Muslim anywhere near my daughter/
  9. I think 4T just wants the punishments, not the allowances, which sounds fine by me!
  10. Fine, let them have their law. Everyone Muslim, get fell in. I'll quite happily chop their hands off, etc. Those of them that don't wish to live in the middle ages, fuck off or live under the rules of our society.
  11. Why the suprise? It's the view of the Wittering Metropolitan Classes that every culture should be respected equally, though we certainly make no demands on immigrants to respect or accept our culture. Several years ago the goal of a Multi-racial Britain was quietly buried and the flags of a multi-cultural Britain were unfurled and have been waved ever since. The goal of a multi-cultural Britain died not just because we Brits don't have the best record for welcoming 'people of colour' into our society but largely because the incomers had no real desire to integrate.

    Since there is no pressure for incomers to adapt to the host culture, it is only natural that they will press to extend their own. At the same time, any display of patriotism on the part of the indigenous population is frowned upon and repressed on the basis that 'that's how the nazi's started'.

    This can't come as a shock to anyone with half a brain! The multi-cultural experiment is merely that. It has no proven example to follow and in my opinion is doomed to failure. Quite how that failure will manifest itself remains to be seen.

    Personally I believe that if people want to come mere to enjoy the safety, security and prosperity of our society they should at least respect it and if they intend to stay here, integrate.

    This is a situation that our current culture has created and fostered so we surely can't be suprised when these views are given by the muslim youth.
  12. Todays problems were foretold in the sixties by one Enoch Powell, and the country will run with blood
  13. Who else gets Sheria Law confused with...

    My Cherie Amour, lovely as a summer's day
    My Cherie Amour, distant as the Milky Way
    My Cherie Amour, pretty little one that I adore
  14. Wrinkles. My aged parent has always banged on about Mr.Powell and so I gave in recently and read a book of his speeches. What he actually said was not racist at all, but forsaw the situation exactly as it is developing. Hopefully, we can avoid the rivers of blood bit but it will be interesting to see how it falls out in the end.

    I always used to hold the view that the time would come when Joe Public would stand up and say 'Enough!'. Sadly I fear that Joe Public no longer has the balls. The major political parties no longer offer him a forum and the alternatives have been demonised or marginalised. We will see.
  15. ericthellama. I remember the speech as if it was yesterday. Good old days!
