In light of all the recent isms of terror (see ISIS Claims Credit for Manchester Attack. Leftists Worry About… Islamophobia and Yet ANOTHER Terror Attack Hits UK, This Time London Bridge), a poll about what British Muslims really think is being recirculated around the interwebs. Like most polls lately, some critics cried BUT SKEWED! Which is why this little nugget needs to be revisited…
A new ICM poll has discovered two out of three Muslims in Britain would not give the government any information if they knew details about a terror plot.
These disturbing poll results seem to indicate the government’s counter-terrorism program, named Prevent, is unlikely to provide much usable information on active threats, if it passes along any information at all, The Express reports.
You can peruse the poll for yourself here.
Look, maybe this is the ISLAM-O-PHOBIA talking, but there sure seems to be a lot of terror attacks happening in Europe over the last year. Coincidence I suppose.
This simply reaffirms the apathy we’ve seen the Islamic majority exhibit when it comes to death and destruction in the name of Allah. Muslims are passionate about halal pepperoni pizza, but terrorism on the other hand? Meh. Someone else’s problem.
In recent years, Islam’s true colors have been coming to light. Turns out those colors are a lovely shade of explosion. Which is why, although we’ve said it before, this bears repeating… We NEED “moderate” Muslims to fight against Islamic terrorism. As it stands, we’re still not convinced moderate Islam really is a thing – what with all the not moderateness we’ve seen lately (see Georgetown Professor: Slavery, Rape is Totally Cool Under Islam…).
It seems every time the terrorist boomage goes down, Islamic apologists like Reza Aslan trot out and flap their lips about Islamophobia. Meanwhile never bothering to address the issue of extremism. Enough. The onus is on Islamists to come forward and actually fight for peace. More on that below…
