Survey: What British Muslims Really Think

Trevor Phillips, former head of Britain’s Equality and Human Rights Commissionis the man responsible for the insufferable term, “Islamophobia” which made its debut in a report he commissioned twenty years ago. Now, he’s the man behind a 615 page survey of British Muslims that was made into the documentary, “What British Muslims Really Think,” which aired on April 13.

Among the shocking discoveries:

  • More than 100,000 British Muslims sympathize with suicide bombers and people who commit other terrorist acts.
  • Moreover, only one in three British Muslims (34%) would contact the police if they believed that somebody close to them had become involved with jihadists.
  • In addition, 23% of British Muslims said Islamic Sharia law should replace British law in areas with large Muslim populations.

Phillips wrote that the poll reveals “the unacknowledged creation of a nation within the nation, with its own geography, its own values and its own very separate future.” He added: “I thought Europe’s Muslims would gradually blend into the landscape. I should have known better.”

Phillips was referring to his role in commissioning the 1997 report, “Islamophobia: A Challenge for Us All.” Also known as the Runnymede Report, the document popularized the term “Islamophobia” in Britain and had a singular role in silencing criticism of mass immigration from the Muslim world. Twenty years later, Phillips now concedes that he has had a change of heart.

  8. The Law of Unintended Consequences has been spendidly confirmed with this pinhead’s report of 20 years ago and his new book.

    I wonder how long it will be before even a small modicum of “true believers in the goodness of mankind” (a.k.a., “progressives”) will understand that the “radical Islamists” are in fact the true followers of the faith, and (to borrow a phrase I grew up with in the age of the dinosaurs) the rest are simply “jack Muslims” not really committed to their faith, just playing along to get along.

    Islam is no more a religion of peace than the “noble savage” exemplified best in “The Last of the Mohicans” was real. They (true Muslim believers and “Native” Americans) are/were no more peaceful than the worst mankind has been able to come up with, especially western civilization, including Hitler, the southeast Asian butchers and yes, Uncle Joe.

    It would be nice if somewhere, sometime, some academic would think with his/her mind, not with his/her “fantasy heart” stuck up an unmentionable portion of his/her anatomy. Their fantasy solutions to mankind’s myriad of problems is killing us all.
