UK: 53% “Threatened By Islam”
In Britain, if you can believe it, many feel threatened by Islam. (Hat tip: Killgore Trout.)
Mass murder attacks by Muslim groups using the Koran as justification, successful and otherwise, proliferating almost daily, might tend to produce that result. I’m just sayin’.
Most people in the UK feel threatened by Islam, a poll has revealed, after the Government launched a bid to tackle inter-faith tensions.
The YouGov survey for the Daily Telegraph found 53% were concerned about the impact of the religion - not just fundamentalist elements - up 21% from 2001.
There had also been a near doubling of the number agreeing that “a large proportion of British Muslims feel no sense of loyalty to this country and are prepared to condone or even carry out acts of terrorism”.
A total of 18% backed the statement - compared with just one in 10 in the wake of the terrorist bombings in London last July.
And there was a seven point slump - to 16% - in those believing “practically all British Muslims are peaceful, law-abiding citizens who deplore terrorist acts as much as anyone else”.
