I am furious at Channel 4's decision to screen an Islamic alternative Christmas message with a women in a full face veil.

I have some questions for Channel 4's chief executive Andy Duncan

1. Why do Channel 4 go out of their way not to offend ethnic minorities, specifically the Muslim community, when Channel 4 is happy to offend large swathes of the british public - on the traditional Christian holy day of christmas - with a muslim women in a full Islamic veil?

2. Will Channel 4 be inviting beer swigging naked women to introduce Ramadan or the Eid festival next year? Or is it just open season on the british public?

3. As a non-muslim I find the veil offensive, so why aren't my views taken into account? Does political correctness only extend to minorities?

4. Why has Channel 4 never screened Submission by Theo Van Gogh? Why has Channel 4 never screened the satirical mohammed cartoons?

5. Can Channel 4 not see that is is fueling extremism, resentment and
antagonism against Britiains Muslim community by deciding to air the voice of an Islamic extremist - I use the word extemist since only 1% of Britains muslim population wear the full face veil?

The good thing though jonz is that many people will feel likewise so their attempts at community relations will backfire quite badly. By the time she comes to do her speech noone will care two partridge hoots for what she says.

I too was offended on this one, at first. But then, I thought about it and realized that in a way this is another Cartoon Wars, in that it will wake up many an Infidel.

Good news, in my opinion.
