If British Muslims are ‘outraged’ by terror attacks, why don’t they show it?
NOTICE the huge demonstrations mounted in the UK this weekend by law-abiding Muslims outraged over the fact that jihadis had recruited a mentally ill man to carry out the bungled terrorist attack in Exeter?
Nope? Well we didn’t either. Maybe that’s because no provocative cartoons were published in retaliation.
Yet according to Britain’s most prominent Muslim politician, Lord Ahmed:
Decent law-abiding Muslims are outraged that people who claim to be followers of Islam should prey on the mentally infirm and encourage them to murder people on a large scale. We should consider hanging for this type of crime.
Lord Ahmed, of all people, should realise that the reprehensible death cult he represents actively encourages martyrdom, and that these vile, sex-starved fanatics he condemns would love nothing more than to be fast tracked to paradise to shove their under-used genitals into those 72 promised virgins.
What is far more likely to bring Muslims onto the streets in a rage are the words of The Bishop of Rochester, the Rt Rev Michael Nazir-Ali, who yesterday accused the Church of England of failing in its duty to convert British Muslims to Christianity.
Dr Nazir-Ali faced death threats earlier this year after saying that some parts of the country had become “no-go areas” for non-Muslims, and by encouraging apostasy – which carries the death sentence in some Islamic countries – he will now doubt be pilloried even further by Muslims.
The Pakistani-born bishop was echoing concerns that many Church leaders are abandoning attempts to spread Christianity among Muslims out of fear of a backlash.
Dr Peter Brierley, a former Government statistician and expert on Church figures, has estimated that at least 50,000 Britons had converted from Christianity to Islam over the past decade, while the number of Muslims becoming Christians was negligible.
And new projections from the independent Christian Research organisation suggest numbers attending mosque on Fridays will overtake those going to church on Sundays by 2050.
Senior Churchmen are jittery about discussing the issue publicly, especially so soon after Dr Williams provoked outrage by supporting the introduction of elements of Sharia into British law.
