I’m more worried about the half who don’t realise the danger; some will be Islamic, some like Hope not Hate will be facilitating Quislings, hopefully the rest will wake up soon. From Yahoo News
More than 40 per cent of Britons say that recent terror attacks have made them more suspicious of Muslims, according to a wide-ranging study into attitudes surrounding race and religion in Britain.
Hope not Hate, the advocacy group that campaigns to “counter racism and fascism”, revealed that 52 per cent of people think that Islam is a threat to the West in its annual Fear and Hope report.
It said that, since 2011, it has tracked a shift in public anxiety from race and racism to Islamophobia and religious discrimination. It noted that, while attitudes towards Muslims improved between 2011 and February 2016, recent attacks — such as the Manchester Arena bombing — have seen anxieties about Islam return to levels of six years ago. I don’t wonder at it.
According to the report, the population as a whole is likely to overestimate the proportion of Muslims in Britain. It found that 39 per cent of people overemphasise the prevalence of Islam in British society, while just 13 per cent estimate the correct 5 per cent. Up from 0.01% when I was a child and rising annually.
Overall, 57 per cent of people disagree that Muslims in Britain should be associated with violence and terrorism, but the rate of people agreeing that Islam is a dangerous religion has increased since 2011.
Hope not Hate said that “the picture of attitudes towards Muslims in Britain is worrying. . . While attitudes to immigration have continued to moderate, albeit perhaps temporarily, the fear of Muslims and hostility to Islam is hardening amongst many.” Hope not Hate are probably worried about their funding from the Daily Mirror, the Labour party and other islamofan quislings
