Why Are Britain's Muslims So Insane?

This Telegraph poses the question (well, not in so many words), and the readers respond. From the Telegraph (thanks to Religion of Pieces):

Young British Muslims are far more likely to hold radical, anti-Western views than their parents or grandparents, a new survey has claimed.

The study found that 40 per cent of Muslims between the ages of 16 and 24 would prefer to live in Britain under sharia law, a legal system based on the teachings of the Koran, compared to just 17 per cent among over-55s.

Why do you think young British Muslims are more prone to fundamentalism than previous generations? Are multicultural policies to blame? Has too much emphasis been placed on minority rights and not enough on integration?

Or is the explanation more straightforward: Britain's involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan has provoked the increased hostility towards the West and its values?

Is the situation in Britain unique? Or does it reflect increasing polarisation between Muslim communities and the West as a whole?

Are these young people likely to mellow as they grow older or will they grow still more radical?

BRitain has lost the plot!! THey do not feel proud to admit that christianity is their way (but they celebrate X'mas!)They encourage a lawless society (under the blanket that everyone has freedom of speech)In other acountries in Asia they are proud to disclose what the main religion is and they follow the rules of the state or they get deported.

If one wishes to live under full Sharia law I am sure there are several countries that would be suitable, if not, then think seriously "Why not?" Maybe when the Islamic countries allow Christians, and other religions, to practise freely and openly and to build their own imposing structures, that do not fit with the local architecture and so stand out like a sore thumb calling attention to themselves and irritating indigenous people, rather than destroying beautiful ancient monuments such as the Buddha in Afghanistan, then we can maybe think again. By then we will probably have a Muslim majority in the UK anyway.

God there are some ignorant people here, who'd make Jade Goody proud! Did you know in the survey that 3% of NON-MUSLIMs felt allegiance with al-qaeda!! Explain that one... The racists on board should stop drivelling and realise that young people are always going to rebel against the establishment. Good on them... That's how we progress as a society.

This was foreseen many years ago when Muslims starting pouring into Britain. Complainers were told to "shut up" and were branded as racists. Since then British people have been brain-washed into believing in peaceful co-existence with an offensive minority who have absolutely no interest in these islands, their culture, values or history. Unless the pathetic NewLabour takes a very determined, and I mean determined stand against these people, then I can only see civil riots and inevitably civil war as a result.

It goes on like that.

From an anonymous tip-off at

Take a look at "Coming soon .. Britain Under Islam, Explore How Britain would be under Islam. One day conference and exhibition in London"

And if you scroll down a bit you'll find an account of the late lamented Ayatollah Khomeini's evening spent entertaining a five year old girl. Some little girls take teddy bears to bed, but this kid got a real special cuddly toy.

I would love to post on that thing about Khomeini, but it is a PDF, which means I can not cut and paste it.

TITLE - Khomeini slept with 4-year-old girl.

An excerpt from 'Hal Ataaka Hadeeth ur-Raafidah?' by the late Sheikh Abu Mus'ab

“The author of the book 'For Allah, Then For History' [1] mentions to us an event that took place before his very eyes, when al-Khomeini [2] was living in Iraq, and was visiting an Iranian individual by the name of Sayyid Sahib.

He says: 'Sayyid Sahib was joyous with our visit, and we arrived at his house around the time of Dhuhr. So, he prepared for us a lavish dinner, and
called some of his relatives, who came to see us, and the house became crowded in celebration of our presence. Sayyid Sahib then requested that we
spend that night at his home, to which the Imam agreed. When it was night time, we were given our supper, and the guests would take the Imam's hand
and kiss it, and they would ask him questions, with him answering their questions.

When it was time to sleep, the guests had all left, except for the inhabitants of the house. Al-Khomeini laid his eyes on a young girl who, despite being only four or five years of age, was very beautiful. So, the Imam requested from her father, Sayyid Sahib, that he spend the night with her in order to enjoy her. Her father happily agreed, and Imam al-Khomeini spent the night with the girl in his arms, and we could hear her
crying and screaming.'”

[1] This book was written under the alias Husayn al-Musawi, a former companion of al-Khomeini who later abandoned his previous beliefs.
[2] Ayatollah al-Khomeini was the leader of the Shee'ah Raafidah of Iran in the 1980s.

Mr. Smith,
Thanks for the help. Can you tell me how to copy and past from a PDF?
