Islamophobic? Too tolerant more like
AS I type this letter I'm hearing on the news that 35 people have been killed at Moscow airport by yet another suicide bomber – more lives lost because of some nutter's warped thinking on religon.
In the same week, Conservative Party Chairman Baroness Sayeeda Warsi fuels intolerance with talk of the spread of Islamophobia. What she fails to understand is that the British public are known for being the most tolerant people in this world. Who else would sit back and take these cuts and fuel rises other than the British? But when we have a Muslim preacher calling our Queen disgusting, Muslim radicals wanting to blow innocent people up, demanding Sharia law, demanding the use of halal meat, burning poppies on Remembrance Sunday, insulting our troops, refusing to integrate with their new hosts when they come here, I think it's a bit rich of Sayeeda Warsi to point the finger at us British. Is she so out of touch that she thinks people will sit back and say nothing?
Maybe she should be concentrating on getting the Muslim community to root out these fanatics themselves rather than wag the finger at us, then maybe attitudes will change.
Just think, if a Christian cleric called a Muslim leader leader disgusting the state would come crashing down on that cleric. But we all know that would never happen as our Christian leaders are too busy appeasing everyone else and letting our Christian values be attacked.
So Baroness Warsi, keep your nose away from my dinner table – any thoughts that people have around a dinner table are their own, not anyone else's. And that's the difference – they are thoughts not actions.
