Exacerbated no doubt by the fact that Austria is rapidly filling up with them:
A new survey has revealed a significant potential for conflicts between Austrians and foreigners, particularly Muslims.
A poll by the Centre for Future Studies of Salzburg’s FH higher education college shows that 53 per cent of Austrians considered the change that existing difficulties in the coexistence of themselves and immigrants could worsen as “very high”.
Around 45 per cent of interviewed Austrians said the same considering Christians and Muslims while 31 per cent were of the same opinion as far as the situation between rich and poor was regarded. Read the rest of this entry »
…and you can stop looking at your watch, or rummaging for your iPhone to check the date – it doesn’t appear to be an April Fool:
A warm welcome to a new and very brave kid on the block – British Muslims for Israel. As I have often said, where someone stands on Israel is for me the litmus test of whether they are a decent and rational human being or pose a threat not merely to Jewish interests but to civilised values. Unfortunately, even among those many Muslims who are opposed to the jihad and support western democracy, animosity towards Israel often runs horrifyingly deep. Any Muslim who speaks up in defence of Israel runs significant personal risks. So those behind British Muslims for Israel, which has emerged from the Institute for Middle Eastern Democracy, merit a huge amount of praise and support. They also offer a ray of hope for the future. They show that there are Muslims who pass that key civilisational litmus test with flying colours.
It is not before time that a voice of reason from the Muslim community was heard – particularly in Britain – which is fast gaining a reputation as an anti-Semite’s paradise.
The cacophany of uninformed and biased, agenda-driven noise (for that it what it is), emanating from the British media and the Islamo-Left coalition – who are dedicated to dehumanising Israelis and falsely presenting the ‘Palestinians’ as perpetual victims – goes virtually unchallenged in here the Britain and the West.
Israel, either through exasperation or sheer inabilty to get a fair hearing, sometimes appears to have given up fighting her own corner. We hope that this story helps stimulate a renewal of the will to defend with pride the Middle East’s only Western-standards, rights-based democracy.
The articulate and steadfast (in the face the relentless campaign to delegitimise her) Melanie Phillips, has the rest at The Spectator.
More waffle from the heads-in-the-sand European political élite:
David Cameron will today signal a tougher Government stance towards groups which promote Islamist extremism.
David Cameron says it’s time to pay more respect to Western value.
The Prime Minister will say that the doctrine of multi-culturalism has failed during a speech in which he calls for “muscular liberalism” in defence of Western values.
He will also blame the radicalisation of Muslim youths and the phenomenon of home-grown terrorism on a “hands-off tolerance” from the authorities. Ministers should refuse to share platforms or engage with groups that peddle separatist ideology, he will say. Read the rest of this entry »
Another case of Rape Jihad from Absurd Britannia?:
A top level inquiry is being carried out by police into claims that a gang of Asian men groomed girls as young as 13 for sex. It is understood that some of Greater Manchester Police’s most senior officers have met to discuss the allegations.
We understand that so far 14 girls have been identified as potential victims. The girls claim they were plied with drink and drugs and then taken to flats and houses for sex.
Police said the girls are all white and aged 13 to 15 and at least one had been in the care of Rochdale Social Services. It is understood some of the girls were missing from home. An inquiry was started after some of them alerted police. Read the rest of this entry »
