UK: Muslims are not like us, race equality chief says


Of course the media is pouncing on him for merely stating the truth. Muslims themselves do not, absolutely not, want to be the same as a kuffar.

Muslim communities are not like others in Britain and the country should accept they will never integrate, the former head of the equalities watchdog has claimed.

Trevor Phillips, the former chairman of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, said it was disrespectful to assume that Muslim communities would change.

He told a meeting at the Policy Exchange think tank in Westminster on Monday that Muslims ‘see the world differently from the rest of us’.

According to The Times, he said: ‘Continuously pretending that a group is somehow eventually going to become like the rest of us is perhaps the deepest form of disrespect.

‘Because what you are essentially saying is the fact that they behave in a different way, some of which we may not like, is because they haven’t yet seen the light. It may be that they see the world differently to the rest of us.’

Mr Phillips added that people of certain backgrounds in the UK are not going to change their views ‘simply because we are constantly telling them that basically they should be like us’.

The Muslim Council of Britain has insisted that members of the religion are compatible with UK life, and believes that the idea of demanding change from Muslims has promoted discrimination.

A spokesman for the organisation told The Times: ‘It assumes that Muslims are not equal, and not civilised enough to be part and parcel of British society, which they most certainly are.’

The Prime Minister has previously made clear that integration failures have allowed extremist ideas to gain traction – resulting in around 700 British Muslims travelling to Syria to join Islamic State.

Counter-terror police say about half are thought to have returned and could pose a threat.

And last week David Cameron launched a new drive to counter extremism by calling on more Muslim women to learn English in the hope that they will turn into more powerful moderating forces.

Mr Phillips, 62, who is known for his outspoken views, hit the headlines last March when he claimed Britain was silencing debate on race issues by ‘intimidating’ those who dare to ask questions.

In a devastating critique of a culture of misguided political correctness, he claimed far too many people felt unable to speak their minds because they feared being branded racist.

Mr Phillips said people would have to become ‘more ready to offend each other’ as the price of free speech, and attacked the ‘racket’ of multiculturalism which took root under Tony Blair’s government.

Muslims, who first arrived in Britain about three centuries ago as sailors working for the East India Company, had a UK population of 2.7million in 2011 – dramatically up from 1.6million in 2001.

  1. Some little time ago, Lenny Henry, a has been children’s comic of immigrant descent, proposed that the UK should set up a virtual “BME” society within the UK.
    Now we have Philips, of immigrant descent, saying the we should set up a virtual muslim society in the UK.

    Whenever comments about immigrant groups are made, up go the cries of “divisive” (generally accompanied with cries of “racist”, “xenophobe”,etc.)
    These two proposals alone show how divisive are the world views of representatives of the immigrant groups.
    No, it is immigrants of all shades who are divisive and they project that mind set onto others. Those others who have been remarkably, almost beyond reason, tolerant towards these groups who wish to make they UK their own, take it from the natives.

    Then they should not be allowed to create a muslim state within the UK state, from which they can pursue the islamic ideology to impose islam on the UK.

  4. Of course they are nothing like us! A person who follows Christ is a Christian, Judaism is a Jew, Hinduism is a Hindu, Buddhism is a Buddhist but one following islam is called a muslim-the difference start right there!

  5. If they, the Muslims, are not like us, perhaps they should go somewhere were they fit in better. There are plenty countries to choose from. Far from us being disrespectful towards the Muslims, it is they that disrespect us.

  7. He’s right and it is a good thing he is not a white but a black Christian. The rest of Commonwealth citizens now Brits were never a problem as the moslems are. It would be fair to say at one time in Britain when West Indians were invited to England to do jobs (which they could do) that white Brits coming out of the forces wouldn’t do anymore, whites became racist.. WWII was a big game changer as was WWI after each of these wars society changed dramatically and too many white folks got hioty tioty wanting to ape the aristo’s! MOSLEMS just aren’t like any of us kick’em out. As for moslem sailors three centuries ago you can imagine where they came from? Barbary coast springs to mind!
