Let's turn the statistics back onto their feet now shall we, just to give a clearer view of what they are actually saying:Dawlish wrote:The major surveys of Muslims in the UK found the following:
20% of British Muslims sympathize with 7/7 bombers.
1 in 4 support suicide attacks against British troops.
37% believe Jews in Britain are a "legitimate target".
18% of British Muslims would be proud or indifferent if a family member joined al-Qaeda.
One third of British Muslims believe anyone who leaves Islam should be killed.
78% of British Muslims support punishing the publishers of Mohammed cartoons.
40% of British Muslim students want Sharia.
68% of British Muslims support the arrest and prosecution of anyone who insults Islam.
1 in 10 British Muslims support killing a family member over "dishonour".
61% of British Muslims want homosexuality punished.
and then make the hysterical leap of (il)logic contained in this statement:Judging by these figures and the trend towards more radicalisation in the younger generation in the UK, there will almost certainly be significant problems in the years ahead for the UK
I imagine that the children of Muslim migrants to the UK will adopt the reproductive patterns and birth rates of the Christian majority. This is the pattern that I have observed for other ethnic groups in Australia and New Zealand....especially considering the disparity of the birth rate between the rest of the UK population and the muslim minority. Projections by the Pew Research Centre said the 40 years between 1990 and 2030 will see a fivefold rise in Britain. In 1990 there were 1.1million Muslims in Britain, representing two per cent of the population. In 2010 that figure had risen to 2.8million, or four per cent. By 2030 the number will hit 5.5million - eight per cent of an estimated 68million population.

1But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.2Early in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people were coming to Him; and He sat down and began to teach them.3The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman caught in adultery, and having set her in the center of the court,4they said to Him, “Teacher, this woman has been caught in adultery, in the very act.5“Now in the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women; what then do You say?”6They were saying this, testing Him, so that they might have grounds for accusing Him. But Jesus stooped down and with His finger wrote on the ground.7But when they persisted in asking Him, He straightened up, and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.”8Again He stooped down and wrote on the ground.9When they heard it, they began to go out one by one, beginning with the older ones, and He was left alone, and the woman, where she was, in the center of the court.10Straightening up, Jesus said to her, “Woman, where are they? Did no one condemn you?”11She said, “No one, Lord.” And Jesus said, “I do not condemn you, either. Go. From now on sin no more.”
Anyone who wants to do harm can find something to support their actions in their religion if they look hard enough.
