Islam And The Battle Of Ideas

That gentle thud you can hear in the background is the British liberal establishment beating its collective breast.
According to an ICM poll for the Sunday Telegraph, 40% of British Muslims want Sharia law.
Which means, of course, that 60% don't, just as over half describe the conviction of Abu Hamza as fair.
David Davis is reported to have said,
"It shows we have a long way to go to win the battle of ideas within some parts of the Muslim community and why it is absolutely vital that we reinforce the voice of moderate Islam wherever possible."
Davis is entirely wrong. There is no 'battle of ideas'; if there is, the fact that those Muslims who would like Sharia maintain their residences in this hellhole of decadence, free healthcare, depravity, 4 x 4 dealerships, iniquity, freedom of movement, public licentiousness and great mobile signal pretty much indicates it's been won.
Those Muslims who do not wish to see Sharia UK have an understanding of the nature of citizenship. It's getting the rest on board that's the tricky bit. And that is not my job or the job of people like me.
If Islam is not forever to be regarded as a subversive ideology, the Muslims need non-Muslim goodwill - a commodity likely to be in short supply if they continue to pull stunts like the one they pulled yesterday, shouting 'Allahu Akbar!' at the foot of Nelson's Column.

The only way "Sharia law" can exist in the UK would be for everyone to agree to it. Any woman insisting on living outside of "Sharia law" would encourage "Sharia law" women to deflect and the extremists can not tolorate this. So, there would be civil war before, during and after any declaring of "Sharia law".

I can't imagine my cousins in the UK giving in to this.

Mike,

I doubt it.

Blair is so politically correct, he would probably make opposing it illegal...

While I think all religions are subversive, or perhaps because I do, I can't see that chanting 'Allahu Akbar' in LONDON is that different to singing carols there.

Sorry if my tuppence worth is an intrusion.

PPU,

Consider this - the carol singers don't want Sharia law.
