Multiculturalism is backed by 62% of Britains

This is a small survey but it seems we are not as racist as the terrorists and the far right would want us to be...

Another small step for common sense

Multiculturalism is backed by 62% of the population, who say it makes Britain a better place to live, according to new figures.

The Mori poll for the BBC found fewer Muslims than other groups think Britain is becoming less racially tolerant.

A total of 31% said they believed this was the case, compared with 39% of people generally.

According to another 31% of Muslims, we are becoming more tolerant, 32% have seen no change and 6% declined to answer or did not know.

In addition, the number of Britons who regard themselves as racially prejudiced has fallen from 30% in 2003 to 25% now.

The Mori poll on August 8 and 9 involved 1,004 adults as well as 204 booster interviews among Muslims.

But the poll also records mixed responses to questions about the integration of immigrant communities.

Nationally, 82% think immigrants who become British citizens should be made to learn English while 90% of Muslims think citizenship should require a knowledge of English.

If things keep going they way they have... that will change...

well i can't speak for you but i would prefere a world where we all get on .

as i have said many times .. the american army will not win this war , the british army will not win this war , iraq , iran , syria , are mere distractions ,

who will win this war

the moderate muslims are the only people who the terrorists will listen to

in this country we have just started an excellent new policy . the extreme muslims we have in jails are now getting visits from the sensible clerics , who are teaching them why they are wrong , why they are reading the quran wrong and how they can not do this in the name of muslims

the longer you take to get behind he moderates , the longer this war will go on

think G ... what you do is EXACTLY what al-qaeda want you to do

to isolate all muslims as the bad guys .. your playing into there hand

I disagree. I think Osama wants us lulled to sleep with multiculturalism and "acceptance". I think that Radical Islam, as an orginization, was planning a massive gobal assault to dramatically change the geopolitical scene in their favor.

I think they underestimated the world and the US. I think they sprung their plans a little too early, and now the cats out of the bag. I think that "moderate Islam" is a dream that has not been realized yet.

Why? Becuase orginizations like CAIR try to make us "multicultural" and acceptant of Islam, but then are tied to terrorist orginizations. Everyday citizens, with families and good jobs suddenly become suicide bombers. Young dreamers, who have their whole life ahead of them will gladly sacrafice themselves for a chance to please their wrathful and vengful god.

But hey, I guess we are just on different pages. :p

am not arguing about any particular group G but surely there are some moderate muslims you can work with ??

if you are saying that ALL muslims are bad then you just sound as crazy as Osama's lot

they want a world that is just muslim , you want a world that is completly non muslim

sorry G ... we can live in peace together ... maybe not with this group or that group

but again i feel your point is wedged with a believe that you can actually win this war

that is a myth

I dont think all Muslim's are bad. I do think that their religion is (in its current state.)
