Islam poses a threat to the West, say 53pc in poll

Telegraph reported The alleged plot to blow up transatlantic airliners and last year's terrorist attacks on London have made more people fear Islam as a religion, not merely its extremist elements, a poll for The Daily Telegraph has found. A growing number of people fear that the country faces "a Muslim problem" and more than half of the respondents to the YouGov survey said that Islam posed a threat to Western liberal democracy. That compares with less than a third after the September 11 terrorist attacks on America five years ago.

If only 53% recognize the threat, then there must be 47% of the British population that is either Muslim or has their heads stuck somewhere that the sun does not shine.
Neverdock blogged Time and time again we hear Muslim "leaders" say one thing to us non Muslims and the opposite to their Muslim brothers. Undercover ivestigations in mosques and Muslim communities show more of the same.

Recently, some of our leaders have begun to change their attitude towards Muslims. PM Blair delcared that we need to stop apologising for our stance on issues. Lord Stevens went further and said, it's a Muslim problem, they own it and they need to fix it. In this article, Kelly goes almost as far as to say multiculturalism is dead. All good words to hear but we need to hear it more often and louder. More importantly, Muslims need to hear it more often and much louder.

Don, I noticed your failed effort to both comment and link to a post at Blogs for Bush this morning. I used to enjoy your comments there a couple years ago. B4B has been experiencing for the last few months an ongoing "server error" problem, and lately, also a trackback problem which they appear to be unable to solve. If you have any thoughts or suggestions, I'm betting Matt would appreciate your help.

He runs MT, and their spam elimination software really does not seem to trust trackbacks generated through Haloscan, which is the only way I can do them, since my blog is on BlogSpot.

I am considering moving it to a WordPress blog, and that might be easier, since WP will actually send the trackbacks from the server hosting the blog (that is what ticks MT off, the Haloscan trackbacks are not coming from the blog server).

I don't know what his comment error message #500 is caused by, but it appears the post got posted.
