Welcome to Islam in Great Britain. Is this what we should expect from a growing Islamic population in America?
Read from the Washington Times:
MUSLIMS IN BRITAIN
"Nearly one-third of Muslim college students in Britain support killing in the name of religion, while 40 percent want to live under Islamic law, according to a secret cable from the U.S. Embassy in London that reviewed public polling data and government population predictions.
A survey of 600 Islamic and 800 non-Islamic students at 30 universities found that 32 percent of the Muslims believed in religious killing, while only 2 percent of non-Muslim students felt religious murder was justified, the cable said, referring to a poll conducted by the Center for Social Cohesion.
The embassy cable, released by the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks, said the same survey revealed that 54 percent of Muslim students want to be represented by an Islamic-based political party.
The poll also showed that 40 percent of Muslim students endorse Islamic, or Shariah, law, which can impose the death penalty for religious heresy and adultery, often by stoning, or the amputation of hands for theft. Since 2008, Britain has allowed Muslims to follow Shariah law in civil cases, but not in criminal trials.
The embassy report, written in February, also noted that Muslims represent the largest non-Christian religious community in Britain. Although Muslims comprise only 3 percent of the British population of nearly 60 million, they have grown to 2 million from 1.6 million in seven years. The government projects the Muslim population will reach 2.2 million in the next census in 2011, the cable said.
Citing various government data, the cable painted a bleak picture of British Muslims, who tend to be poor, uneducated and unskilled and who live in overcrowded apartments.
The unemployment rate was 13 percent for Muslim men and 18 percent for Muslim women in 2004. The jobless rate was even worse for Muslims between the ages of 16 and 24, with 28 percent unemployed. More than two-thirds of Muslim households have more than five people.
Although 74 percent of Muslims were of Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Indian or other Asian backgrounds, 70 percent identified themselves as British in the last census in 2001."
I'm shocked! A mere three percent of the British population sure can stir up a lot of trouble. From all the news coming out of England, I expected the Muslim population to be significantly larger than that. Just give them a few more decades and all hell will break loose.
