Hidden away at the bottom of an article by Leon Moosavi dated July 2012 in the Guardian, was the information that 55% of Britons would be concerned if a mosque was built in their area. Mr Moosavi, in an otherwise fine example of flawless journalistic dhimmification extolled the virtues of the British Islamic community, and how loyal and integrated they are, and poured scorn on the results of a 2011/2012 survey on attitudes to Islam from Muslims and non Muslims. This survey not surprisingly showed that non Muslims are getting worried and concerned about Islam.
The poll carried out by the University of Essex, showed that a majority of Non Muslims (52%) thought that Islam ’causes problems’ and 47% thought that Islam ‘was a threat’. Only 28% of those non Muslims surveyed thought that Islamic communities were integrating well.
These results would tend to suggest that the Leftist propagandists for Islam as exemplified by the type of articles on Islam that are published in the Guardian, and the BBC is beginning to not be listened to by much of the population. Mr Moosavi’s Guardian article is interesting because it shows just how divorced the middle class leftist journalists similar to Mr Moosavi are from the opinions of the population.
He seemed to be baffled by what he called the results of the survey which, he said, showed a ‘disconnect’ between non Muslim’s opinion of Islam and what he believes is the truth. He blames ‘xenophobia’ for the attitudes of non Muslims to the followers of Islam. As is usual with apologists for Islam, there is no mention at all of why Islam is not popular, no mention of the violence, nor the oppression of women, nor the aggression and intolerance. People like mr Moosavi, don’t see such things because it doesn’t fit in with their worldview. Everyone else on the other hand, does quite rightly, see the ideology of Islam as a problem.
Where he is correct is when he says that a lot of Muslims just want to keep their head down and get on with life and I have no problem with that, some people are good and loyal in spite of the ideology they grew up with. Muslims are just as capable as Christians and Jews or anybody else to look at the troublesome bits of their theology and say ‘that is a load of bollocks.’ I don’t want individual Muslims to be harmed but I want the ideology of Islam countered effectively by those such as the police, the security services and our politicians, who we should be able to trust to protect this country. At the moment they are providing anything but a effective counter to Islam, and this along with the attitudes of too many followers of Islam, is increasing the anger about Islamic expansionism, violence, crime and terror.
I grant that the figures showing that Muslims are well integrated and loyal do look impressive, but it would be worthwhile being cautious about them as Islam permits lying to promote Islam. Not all the respondents would have lied but enough may have done to affect the figures. Those of us who have found ourselves at the sharp end of this ‘religiously permitted lying’ from Islamic communal figures, always treat such pro islamic survey results with a pinch of salt.
I think those who read this blog regularily will guess that I’m one of the 55% because I can see very little of value in Islamic ideology and the effects of it where it governs, are like those of Communism, always deliterious to freedom and justice. Are you one of the 55% who fear the ideology that mosques promote, if so why?
