Conservative British Muslims' Program For The Islamization Of Britain

The Telegraph: A body set up by David Cameron to advise the Conservatives on Muslim issues has criticised the Government's relationship with Israel and concluded that Iran has "legitimate" reasons for wanting nuclear weapons.

The Conservative Muslim Forum also wants the compulsory history curriculum in schools changed to give "full recognition to the massive contribution that Islam has made to the development of Western civilisation".

It also argues that preachers who advocate a rejection of democracy and its institutions should not be denied entry into Britain...

But the way it addresses certain key issues — completely at odds with Tory policy — will embarrass Mr Cameron. Its comments on Israel, in particular, will be seized on.

The report says: "Regardless of whether one finds Israel a congenial country or not, on any objective assessment of the type of unqualified support given to Israel by the current government it is not conducive to British national interests as this could damage Britain's relationships with 15 billion Muslims worldwide, including those in Britain."

It concludes that passage with: "In all our dealings with Israel, we must remember the plight of the displaced Palestinians."

The group calls on the party to be more sympathetic towards Iran. It says: "Given Iran's position in the Middle East, facing a nuclear-armed Israel, Iran appears to have legitimate reasons for seeking nuclear weapons for defensive purposes."

The full PDF is here. And of course the fact that Muslims strive for Islam in every aspect of life should not be a surprise to anybody, but apparently Melanie Phillips is shocked at the immoral stance taken in this document, but as Lawrence Auster points out, it is only immoral from a western perspective, for an Islamic moral framework it is perfectly logical and proper.

Auster also puts his finger on the essential condescension many agnostics feel toward religion and toward all people who take religion seriously. This attitude makes many otherwise rational people of sound judgment quite incapable of taking Islam seriously and causes them to underestimate its strength (see Iraq).

   Rebecca, you are completely right in your assessment here.

   The British Conservative Party took one step forward in urging a UK ban on Hizb ut-Tahrir, but has taken two steps back by allowing such Islamic, anti-Western propaganda to be advocated in its own Party.
