#1 "Nearly half, 47 per cent, say they would also go to the police if they believed an imam or other religious person was trying to radicalise young Muslims by preaching hatred against the West."

That sounds weasely. Let's re-word it slightly:

"Fewer than half, 47 per cent, say they would also go to the police if they believed an imam or other religious person was trying to radicalise young Muslims by preaching hatred against the West."

There, that's more to the point: Britain, you've got a BIG problem.

#2 Only 25%. Not possible.

AAl muslims sympathize with terror bombings and terrorists.

After all, they hate us. Thats all.

#3 Here're the responses. Most of the other 76% said they had "no sympathy at all" for the motives of the bombers.

Other fun numbers: 27% would not tell the police if they suspected someone they knew was planning an attack on London; 32% believe western society is evil and Muslims should bring it to an end; only 32% feel Muslims now have a "great deal" of responsibility to prevent such attacks or bring the perps to justice; 42% don't agree with Blair that the ideals of the bombers were "perverted and poisonous".

#4 Since sympathy for terrorists is a horrible thing to express in most rational people's eyes, it is likely that many respondents chose the safe answer (not sympathising with terrorists) over what they actually believe.

Further, the Moslem principle of taqiya (deception of non-believers) requires them to lie to non-Moslems in order to promote the aims of Islam.

Still looking for the mythical "moderate" Moslem leaders and activists.

#5 Lying isn't required Kalle, it's merely allowed if the person in question feels that telling the truth about their faith would put either them or the faith itself in danger. But the effective result on the non-Muslim listener is about the same: we'll have no way to separate honest answer from dishonest ones thus placing a huge premium on the actions of the Islamic community in the west over their words.

#6 But these numbers are incredibly high. They seem like an admission against interest. The Brits don't need to wait for more actions based on these results. The real question is how do they separate the good ones from the bad?

#7 One of those scales as seen in Monty Pythons “Search for the Holy Grail”? That makes about much sense as this whole survey.

We are faced with a religious movement (Islam) which provides, encourages and allows for outright lies to be told in furtherance of Islam. This is not a subject open to debate, it is a fact.

Thus this survey is useless, statically or otherwise.

#8 May I suggest another survey. This time with a "loaded" question. As in, you sympathise, you go away?

#9 perhaps a recount, but roving bands of soccer hooligans knocking down the door, asking the questions at 11PM. You'd get Taqqiya lies, but the impression might be left that time's up, best get thee back to Islamoland

#10 Next time, the survey should be done by policemen in civilian clothes.

Any Moslem who feels the 7/7 mass-murder was justified without qualification -- arrest them and execute them. Deport their widows and kids.

Any Moslem who feels a lot of sympathy for the feelings and motives of the 7/7 bombers -- you know the routine.

Any Moslem who would not tell the police if they suspected someone they knew was planning an attack on London -- same routine.

In each such case the particular Moslem would have declared himself at war with Britain. That probably includes dealing with more than 25% of Moslems in the UK, plus shipping out their immediate relatives, say getting rid of 60-70% total.

There is an estimated 2 million Moslems in the UK. Half a million of them consider themselves at war with the UK.

How many Nazis/Germans were allowed to proselytize and live freely in Britain during WW II?

#11 I mean: any Moslem feeling that 7/7 was justified no matter what qualification they might add (the eternal "but" of Islamofascist propaganda).

#14 Again, a simple answer to a clear problem. It's them or us. My answer is to run 'em out. Now. Send them back to the hellholes they came from. Tolerance of their hatred for us is simply acquiescing in slow motion to our own destruction. Muslims out of both Europe and America. Now.
