    Finally, some good news. Maybe the tide if finally receding . . .

  2. Multiculturalism is not about integration but about cultural plurality. It is not about separation but about respect and the deepening awareness of Unity in Diversity. Each culture will maintain its own intrinsic value and at the same time would be expected to contribute to the benefit of the whole society. Multiculturalism can accommodate diversity of all kinds – cultural, philosophical and religious – so that we can create a world without conflict and strife. Britain can assume the role of accommodation and concern for all peoples, for our planet and indeed for our survival. Multi-culturalism is even more important and crucial after 9/11 and 7/7. Muslim youths are also likely to feel alienated by a focus on shared Brutishness, rather than multicultural diversity. Rather than promoting a single British “us” teaching should acknowledge that “us” can be diverse and plural. Children should be encouraged to explore differences in appearance, history and religion to reduce social and educational fears. The pressures of multi-culturalism, racism, bullying and Islamophobia have forced the Muslim community to set up their own schools.There are hundreds of state and church schools where Muslim pupils are in majority. In my opinion all such schools may be opted out as Muslim Academies with bilingual Muslim teachers as role models. Such schools will be able to satisfy the needs and demands of the Muslim children and their parents.

    @Iftikhar Ahmad – If we want to teach Muslim youths about diversity and plurality, then Muslims can lead the way by respecting diversity and plurality themselves and not acting as if they are superior to non-Muslims, and not playing the victim, when they themselves are the bullies.
    Until then: shut the fuck up, please!

    OT- HOUSTON Slaughtered Pig Left Outside of Cypress Mosque

    As a group of Muslims came to pray last night at the Islamic Outreach Center on Wilks Drive near Mueschke Road in Cypress, they made a sickening discovery.

    There was a dead pig on the deck of the deck at the entrance of the mosque.

    “Although Muslims do not abhor any animal, it is not allowed for Muslims to eat the meat of pig,” reads an email from a mosque spokesman.

    “At times pig is used symbolically against Muslims, and similar things have happened in the past across the world, and in the recent past in another part of Houston region, when pig races were held in Katy besides a Muslim place of worship.”

    CAIR, America’s largest Muslim civil liberties organization, issued the following statement:

    It is very alarming to see Houses of Worship being targeted with such an offensive gesture. It compromises the Muslim community’s sense of safety. We ask for everyone’s support during this time. We ask that law enforcement investigate this incident and perpetrator be held accountable. There is no place for hate at houses of worship. The increase of Islamophobic in American society rhetoric is contributing to these unfortunate occurrences.
