Almost a third of schoolchildren believe that Muslims are “taking over our country” according to the largest study of its kind carried out in the UK.
A survey of almost 6,000 children aged 10 to 16 across England found that negative attitudes towards migrants and Muslims were widespread among school pupils.
The data, based on questionnaires sent to more than 60 schools across the UK by charity Show Racism the Red Card (SRTRC) between 2012 and 2014, also found that 60 per cent of children questioned believed “asylum seekers and immigrants are stealing our jobs”.

According to an Employment Ministry document obtained by Radio24syv, the Danish Security and Intelligence Service (PET) told the Danish Agency for Labour Market and Recruitment (STAR) that there have been 32 instances of Danes receiving unemployment benefits from the state while waging jihad in Syria.

Montréal, May 19, 2015 – The Integrated National Security Enforcement Team (INSET) made a series of arrests last weekend in order to disrupt the plans of ten young Montréal residents suspected of wanting to leave the country to join jihadist groups. The arrests took place at the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Airport.
No charges have been laid at this time, and the investigation is ongoing. Consequently, the RCMP is unable to disclose the identity of the persons who were arrested or any information that led to their arrests. We can say, however, that the families and friends of the young persons have been met by investigators. All ten young persons arrested had their passports confiscated.
