The Islamic community has once again confirmed that they do not want to assimilate with the rest of the UK. In a recent poll almost 50% of them have admitted that they want a separate society away from the non-Muslims there. In response a British politician finally has stated that if they do not want to be one with the rest of the UK, they do not belong there. The question is will the government actually do anything about it?
Many Muslims do not want to integrate
21st January By Emma Wall
MUSLIMS want to create their own communities and remain segregated from British society.
A shocking 44% think they should be free to develop along separate lines.
But critics claim Muslims will create their own ghettos if they are left to their own devices.
The poll found religion has replaced race as the biggest equality issue, with six in 10 Brits thinking it is more divisive. Mass tension has grown following terror attacks from Muslim fanatics, including the 7/7 Tube bombings in 2005.
The war in Iraq has also added to divisions leaving many communities split.
But critics are fuming Muslims are refusing to fit into our way of life.
English Democrats’ chairman Robin Tilbrook said: “As far as I’m concerned, what we want to be about is having an integrated society.
“If people don’t want to integrate, they shouldn't be here.
“It’s not at all right to have what’s really a sort of ghetto situation developing – it’s going to lead to trouble.
“We can’t have a single society with lots of different rules.” Stephen Green, national director of Christian Voice, said: “I’m not surprised because there are already Muslim enclaves all over the country. They keep themselves to themselves anyway.”
The Equalities and Human Rights Commission poll found 67% of Muslims would not be happy for their child to marry someone of a different religion. But marrying someone from a different race bothers them less, with 61% content with the idea.
The shock results come a day after commission chairman Trevor Phillips said Britain was “by far” the least racist country in Europe.
And the commission said the poll confirmed Brits are “increasingly at ease with racial diversity”.
It found 58% of ethnic minorities are optimistic about the future and 56% of the public think Britain will have a non-white Prime Minister within the next 20 years. But minority groups are still wary about the police, with 53% believing the failings made in the Stephen Lawrence murder could happen again.
Mr Phillips, 55, said: “At this historic moment, when America has chosen its first black leader, it is heartening to recognise that here in Britain we have a sophisticated sense of our own identity and an appreciation and interest in difference. But we can’t be complacent.
“The survey points to emerging religious divisions. And as we mark a darker moment in our history, the 10th anniversary into the murder of Stephen Lawrence, it is clear the police still have work to do to convince our ethnic minority communities they deserve their trust.
