How can you feel you have any place in this country?
You don't. You are not British citizens nor will you ever be, no matter
how many generations of you live here. You are completely naive if you
think that the state of multi-culturism in this country will continue.
You do not
belong here. If we came to your country (and I mean your real country
not ours) then we would have to respect your beliefs and dress and speak
accordingly. Yet should we ask you to do the same here you throw your
hands up and shout racism, is this democracy? I don't think so. You
refuse to even
try to be a part of this country and have formed ghettos in which the
true citizens of this country are made to feel completely un-welcome.
is disgraceful, you do not care about this country, all you want to do
is take over. You do not even have the common decency to speak to us in
language. Please do not think me the minority, you cannot hide behind
racism laws forever. We will get you out of this country and restore it to its glory, a glory of which you will have
no part. Be warned.
Although preposterous, this anonymously posted question
answer because it is so typical of common prejudice and
misconceptions about Muslims in Britain. Why don't you go back
to where you came from? What? Sheffield? Our party leader's case
is a prime example of how flawed this line of argument is: He is an
English convert born in Sheffield with a long line of local
antecedents. His family did do business in India during the British
Rule, but now he is back where they came from. Sure, the majority
of Muslims born in Britain have immigrant parents or grandparents,
but why did they come to Britain? Because the British went and
took their countries away from them. The Commonwealth didn't
come about by nations writing to Queen Victoria with a polite
request to be allowed in.
The folly remark that if "we came to your
country we would respect your beliefs and dress and speak
accordingly" betrays a lack of historical knowledge. The British did
come to Muslims countries, did not respect their beliefs, forced
them to change their dress and the rest of their culture and made
English their official language. And by making themselves rulers of
parts of the Muslim world, they invited their subjects to come to
England, only now to turn round that they have outstayed their
welcome. Well, until Western nations realise that they have also
outstayed their welcome when plundering the resources of the rest
of the world, they will obviously not understand why they are not
flavour of the month abroad. It would be a good idea for ignorant
people like the questioner to organise a holiday week when all
Muslims, or even better, all non-indigenous people, stayed off work
at the same time. Britain would come to a standstill.
