HOW MANCHESTER BOMBER WAS TAUGHT TO HATE | Herald Sun

Tommy …

Great article, key points for me are :”His grandparents and great grandparents were saved from German and Italian fascists by the sacrifice of British soldiers.””Manchester and Birmingham are home to some of the most militant Islamists in the UK. While living safely under Britain’s rule of law, they nonetheless view British society as beneath contempt. Anything that happens to a Muslim anywhere in the world, once passed through the Islamist victimhood filter, becomes an anti-Muslim act for which the guilty must be punished.”

“Britain has a long history of (relatively gradual) immigration and, most importantly, assimilation that has been, as much as anything, the result of acceptance by host communities – mostly at the levels of the working and lower middle classes.”

“We can have all sorts of differences in class, outlook and background, as long as there is some common thread, some notion of shared interest, history and destiny that binds us together as a community. This is what Islamists and their apologists both reject. One because it violates their claim to govern humanity in the name of God, and the other because it sounds uncouth and parochial.”
