How do radicalisation and segregation happen? Obstinacy and persistence. That’s what we learn from Muslims Like Us, a two-part “reality documentary” and that airs this week on BBC Two. It puts ten British Muslims in a Big Brother-style house to see how they’ll get on. Nine are quite normal, only one is a fanatic.

And yet it is the fundamentalist who dominates the screen and makes his housemates change to suit him. It confirms the view that Britain does not have an Islam problem. It has a fundamentalism problem – and our innate decency, which is common to Britons of all races and religions, actually incubates it.

The background to the show is a divided country. Last week saw the publication of the Casey Review, a state-of-the-nation report on religion and race. It concludes that while Britain is more diverse and more comfortable with diversity than it’s ever been, the pace of change is dizzying…

  2. BBC News have just interviewed one of the participants in this show, she was a so called moderate muslim who has integrated. She said that she felt it was her job to make everyone in the house feel comfortable, so if it made the fundamentalist muslim comfortable for her to go to the other end of the kitchen and eat her meal separately from him that was no problem for her.
    That is all very well but how far would she go to make this fundamentalist feel comfortable? Maybe she should have dressed in a Burka and Niqab, not spoken to any of the men and kept her place and ofcourse complied with everything he told her to do. That is what would have made him comfortable. This is the problem with this country we will try to make others feel comfortable even if it means we give up soemthing that we believe in.

  3. …………………………………IT WOULD BE NAUSEATINGLY STUPID
    ……………………………………OR OVER THE TOP INSULTING…IF
    I were not convinced that… somehow, these kafir fools were not themselves truly duped into… dare I say… “honestly” believing what they spew.

    Is there a way to reach out to these lost souls, who are steeped in deception, without getting their puttered stench on you?… It may not wash off but I think that an honest effort must be exerted to free them or we are no better than they are.

    One thing for sure though; we must stop this dangerously stupid or, at the least, ignorant insistence on using the term, “Islamist Extremism”. It is Political Correctness disguised and it plays right into the hands of those who try to promote the idea of, “Peace-Loving Moderate Muslim-ism”, which is, in truth, “White Washed Jihadism”.

    As they like to hold up one finger to represent that there is only one “Allah” there is also, after all, only one Koran and one Islam… Is there not? And if they had their Mahdi today, they would join forces and rise up across the world to kill the kafir, the infidel… (You and me)

    So please, no more of this “Islamist Extremism”. They are “Fundamentalist Muslims” or “Conservative Muslims”; they wish to keep (conserve) the original meaning of the text found in their Koran… and follow it to a tee.
    Am I wrong?

    So, the Muslim who practices (true) jihad, is the “TRUE” Muslim… And we must stop them at all cost.

    Start at the hive where they get nourishment I think; take that hive out of your neighborhood, out of your city, your state… you country. Get rid of the infestation all together.
