Religion of Peace
are approximately 1 billion Muslims in the world. In Great Britain there are
approximately 2 million Muslims. In America we are tolerant of the practice of
all religions but we expect the practitioners to be tolerant of others who do
not share their religious beliefs. Islam is a religion born out of violence and
proselytized by tactics of fear and intimidation. I recommend reading
"The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades)", by Robert
Spencer. Spencer reveals
truths about the "religion of peace" which show that it is not what the
apologists for Islamic jihadists want you to believe it is. Not much has changed
since the 11th Century. If you don't believe this is happening today, see: http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/
intolerant religion is spreading throughout the world and it is becoming more
and more violent. Many young people are buying into the jihadist cause promoted
by al-Qaeda, Osama bin Laden, and the radical clerics throughout the Middle
East. If the following article doesn't scare the hell out of you, nothing will:

A third of Muslim students back killings
Radicalism and support
for sharia is strong in British universities
ALMOST a third of British Muslim students believe killing in the name of
Islam can be justified, according to a poll.
The study also found that two in five Muslims at university support the
incorporation of Islamic sharia codes into British law.
The YouGov poll for the Centre for Social Cohesion (CSC) will raise concerns
about the extent of campus radicalism. "Significant numbers appear to hold
beliefs which contravene democratic values," said Han-nah Stuart, one of the
report's authors. "These results are deeply embarrassing for those who have said
there is no extremism in British universities."
The report was criticised by the country's largest Muslim student body,
Fosis, but Anthony Glees, professor of security and intelligence studies at
Buckingham University, said: "The finding that a large number of students think
it is okay to kill in the name of religion is alarming.
"There is a wide cultural divide between Muslim and nonMuslim students. The
solution is to stop talking about celebrating diversity and focus on integration
The researchers found that 55% of nonMuslim students thought Islam was
incompatible with democracy. Nearly one in 10 had "little respect" for Muslims.
In addition to its poll of 1,400 Muslim and nonMuslim students, the centre
visited more than 20 universities to interview students and listen to guest
speakers. It found that extremist preachers regularly gave speeches that were
inflammatory, homophobic or bordering on antisemitic.
The researchers highlighted Queen Mary college, part of London University, as
a campus where radical views were widely held. Last December, a speaker named
Abu Mujahid encouraged Muslim students to condemn gays because "Allah hates"
homosexuality. In November, Azzam Tamimi, a British-based supporter of Hamas,
described Israel as the most "inhumane project in the modern history of
James Brandon, deputy director at CSC , said: "Our researchers found a
ghettoised mentality among Muslim students at Queen Mary. Also, we found the
segregation between Muslim men and women at events more visible at Queen Mary."
A spokesman for Queen Mary said the university was aware the preachers had
visited but did not know the contents of their speeches. "Clearly, we in no way
associate ourselves with these views. However, also integral to the spirit of
university life is free speech and debate and on occasion speakers will make
statements that are deemed offensive."
In the report, 40% of Muslim students said it was unacceptable for Muslim men
and women to associate freely. Homophobia was rife, with 25% saying they had
little or no respect for gays. The figure was higher (32%) for male Muslim
students. Among nonMuslims, the figure was only 4%.
The research found that a third of Muslim students supported the creation of
a world-wide caliphate or Islamic state.
A number of terrorists have been radicalised at British universities. Kafeel
Ahmed, who drove a flaming jeep into a building at Glasgow airport last year and
died of his burns, is believed to have been radicalised while studying at Anglia
Ruskin university, Cambridge.
Wes Streeting, president of the National Union of Students, condemned the
study. "This disgusting report is a reflection of the biases and prejudices of a
right-wing think tank not the views of Muslim students across Britain," he
said. "Only 632 Muslim students were asked vague and misleading questions, and
their answers were wilfully misinterpreted."
Some of the findings amplify previous research. A report by Policy Exchange
last year found that 37% of all Muslims aged 16-24 would prefer to live under a
Baroness Warwick, chief executive of Universities UK, said: "Violence, or the
incitement to violence, has no place on a university campus."
