Myth, not fact, from dhimmi British fact-finders who steadfastly refuse to discuss the real source of the troubles of non-assimilation they’re scratching their heads over: the teachings of Islam, and their reinforcement by Muslim leaders who have preached against assimilation for years. “UK ‘must tackle ethnic tensions,'” from the BBC, with thanks to JE:
Tensions between people of different ethnic groups and faiths in British society must be tackled, says Communities Secretary Ruth Kelly.
Ms Kelly launched a Commission on Integration and Cohesion, calling for a “new and honest” debate on diversity.
The body, which will start work next month, will look at how communities in England tackle tensions and extremism….
The launch of the commission comes amid growing fears of alienation, especially among young Muslims….
In a speech in London, Ms Kelly said the UK had moved away from an era of “uniform consensus” about multi-culturalism.
People were now questioning whether multi-culturalism instead encouraged separateness, she said.
But the new debate had to be based on “fact, not myth”.
Ms Kelly promised the commission would not be a “talking shop” and would not focus on tackling the ideology of a “perverted form of Islam” – something the government was examining in other ways.
