British Muslims Seething, Whining, Furious

• Views: 1,240

British Home Secretary David Blunkett has warned that radical Islamic “spiritual leaders” are preying on young British Muslims, influencing them to join the jihad against the West: Fury over Blunkett’s warning to Muslims.

“We have to understand what is happening in a world where young men and women can be enjoined by their religious leaders to take their own lives and others as suicide bombers,” he said.

The Home Secretary said the involvement of two British Muslims in a suicide attack in Israel this year demonstrated that “we are not completely untouched”.

Apart from the two in Israel, in recent years Britain has supplied Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh, who masterminded the kidnap and murder of Daniel Pearl, an American journalist, in Pakistan. Originally from east London, he attended a British public school before dropping out of the LSE.

Richard Reid, born in London, tried to carry out a suicide attack on a Paris to Miami flight in December 2001 but was overpowered by passengers. There are seven British Muslims held by the Americans in Guantanamo Bay after being captured in Afghanistan.

Earlier this year, Anjem Choudary, the British leader of Al-Muhajiroun, an Islamist group with a base in London, said Muslims had an obligation to support their fellow believers in jihad.

Blunkett’s common sense remarks, of course, have provoked the usual tedious whine/seethefest from “mainstream” British Muslim groups:

Inayat Bunglawala, spokesman for the Muslim Council, said: “We are quite dismayed to see him, yet again, singling out the British Muslim community for denigration.

“His remarks about Muslim youth, while they are sure to gain him plaudits amongst the far Right, are off the mark and show him to be poorly briefed.

“In comparison with their parents’ generation, Muslim youths today are far more confident in their identity and better integrated into our country’s life.

“They are also more willing to speak out against policies they disagree with. We should be encouraging them with strategies geared towards inclusiveness and not engaging in a crude post-September 11 version of ‘Paki-bashing’.”
