Allah-U-Akhbar, I Got Mail! (again)

After leaving a comment that had nothing to do with the subject of an older post, Mr. London School of Islamics continues to pester me - this time by email:

Muslim Ghettoisation

We live in a shrunken world and millions of people are on the move; one of
our biggest challenges is how we learn to live in proximity to difference -
different skin colours, different beliefs and different way of life.
According to a study by COMPAS, Muslims born and educated were given the
impression of outsiders. The perception among Muslims is that they are
unwelcome in Britain is undermining efforts to help them integrate into
wider society. Most of them say that they have experienced race
discrimination and religious prejudice. Muslims and Islam is promoted a fundamentalist and separatist by the western elite, which have negative impact on community and social cohesion. The number of racist incidents occurring in London Borough of Redbridge's schools have reached their highest levels since record begin.


Here is where I stopped reading.

"Perception they are unwelcomed in Britain"? By the Prophet's beard - if the British Government didn't bent over to accommodate them, then I don't know what the meaning of the word "welcome" is. They were given land to build mosques, foot baths in schools, fat welfare checks for stay-at-home-and-breed muslimas, separate rooms in gyms, prayer rooms in airports and schools, separate swimming hours in public pools...this is just to name a few things that came through my mind even before I take the first sip of coffee this morning.

"Race discrimination and religion prejudice"?
Mr. Ifthikar Ahmad, please send me an email and let me know when the Christians and the Jews in London will hold a public rally sporting signs like "Behead Muslims", "Islam Go To Hell" "Massacre Those Who Insult The Jews" or "Christianity Will Dominate The World". Not holding my breath.

"The number of racist incidents has reached their highest levels"?
Finally, here is something both, you and me agree: the number of racist incidents has increased dramatically indeed. Take for example the attacks perpetrated by arabs against severeral synagogues in England; the severe beating of a Jewish boy in Crown heights ; the savage assault of a 12-year-old Jewish girl Jasmine Kranat, who was beaten unconscious on a north London bus by two teenage girls who asked her first if she was Jewish; the beating of an Orthodox Jew by an Arab man who screamed: "Get back to Stamford Hill, I want to kill you all"; the two synagogues set on fire in South Tottenham and Hendon;
In England the rise in anti-Semitic incidents is so high that a commission has been established to investigate what Melanie Phillips calls “the hate fest against the Jewish people.” Early reports of the commission state that (by comparison with people of other religions) Moslems are eightfold more likely to hate Jews .

Dear Mr. Ifthikar Ahmad,
Please continue to send me your grievance emails. You really made my day with this one. I promise I will continue to make them public and try to make you famous in the process. Just not in the way you're expecting.
