Melanie Phillips's latest outburst against Islam and Muslims is opportunistic and goes beyond the pale.

Sean - "You need to read beyond The Sun, to know somethings-try not to believe everything you read..."
Ahhhh... that old chestnut... "stop reading the Sun". Blah blah blah blah blah... you're too predictable. It won't work on me, kid.
"so dont tell me they are only picking on whites. these criminals like white criminals will abuse whoever they can get their hand on."
I NEVER said these Muslim thugs were only picking on "whites". I said they're only picking on NON-Muslims. Because THAT'S what is comes down to; Muslim men preying on NON-Muslim girls.
"Speak to Barnardo’s chief executive Martin Narey who said "street grooming was ‘probably happening in most towns and cities’ and that victims were Asian as well as white (ask him and he will tell you what who he meant by Asian?)"
YES! And those 'Asian' female victims will be of HINDU & SIKH background, with the offenders being MUSLIM males.
I have never ONCE made this into an 'Asian on White' problem.
"Dont just read what you want to read...and yeah i know we live in britain, its a shame we share it with narrow minded men like you...you narrow mindedness has no bounds!"
LOL! I'M narrow minded, eh? How narrow-minded are the Muslims in Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Iraq, Egypt, Iran, Yemen etc etc who regularly persecute the non-Muslim population, a great deal of the time with the backing of the LAW? It's already started here in Britain. It will only get worse, as the Muslim population continues to grow.
PysFeesh - Of course I know all Muslims aren't the same. Just as in the 30's, not all Germans were Nazis. But that didn't mean Britain shouldn't have defended herself from them. OF COURSE all Muslims aren't the same. But the FACTS are; non-Muslims ARE treated as second class citizens across the Muslim world. THAT IS FACT. I'm not in favour of having a Muslim majority in Britain, just as no Muslim in Pakistan, or Saudi Arabia, or Bangladesh would want non-Muslims to become the majority. What is so hard for you to understand about that? I DON'T WANT TO BECOME A MINORITY IN MY OWN COUNTRY. Is that "racist"? Is that "fascist"? Is that "intolerant"? Take that CRAP and shove it.
Poor affronted Mahdi, ('The number of Islamophobic comments below the line is depressing if predictable').Now if even here in the columns of the NS which along with the Guardian's CIF are the home grounds of broad-minded tolerant multiculturalism, aside from a couple of deranged trolls, (yes I mean you Kassem and Attrition47), the overwhelming sense of these responses is that Islam is running out of friends. The question then arises, if modern British Islam has so few friends in the pages of the New Statesman, where does it have any friends who aren't already Muslim? The question for Mehdi is, unless the pages of the NS have been invaded by the right, why is it so predictable that the readers of the New Statesman have become so depressingly Islamaphobic?
"We never, ever condem a fellow muslim and take the side of the kuffar"
EnragedBrit - where is your evidence?
Thats a reasoned post.
Sadly, it will be lost on the armchair bigots and trolls who place their faith in their new gospel, the Gospel of Melanie Phillips.
Funny, Sean, that you failed to mention that the Barnardos chappie said that it wasn't just Pakistanis doing it, but Afghans and Arabs too!
And what do they all have in common?
BTW - This weekend, Marine Le Pen will become leader of the FN over in France. She regularly wipes the floor with the quisling politicians and the media fools - and if the Left/Muslims don't kill her first, she will be President within 10 years. We're not beaten yet. Vive la Resistance!
Well you may be in denial but I know several, well-educated women from muslim backgrounds that were born and brought up in this country and every one of them has told me that they will never have a relationship with a muslim man. Why do you think that is? From my reading of Islam, along with all other major religions, women are second-class citizens. All religions demean women. Islam, because it has the jihad, the whole-of-life path that must be followed, is much more deeply rooted in the daily lives of its slaves. This infantilises the men and many never grow beyond adolescence emotionally. Your own screeching denial is clear evidence of this. Please read Ernest Becker's Denial of Death and grow up.
