Were as British as fish n chips, UK Muslims tell PM
Al Arabiya ^ | 06/16/2014 | Ben Flanagan

Muslim groups in the United Kingdom have hit back at the prime minister’s suggestion that the community needs to be more “British,” saying that Islamic values are in line with those being pushed by David Cameron.

Writing in yesterday’s Mail on Sunday, Cameron said it is time to stop being “squeamish about Britishness,” adding that it was “not an option” for people to live in the UK without accepting British laws and the British way of life.

Cameron made his remarks ahead of next year’s 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta...Ebrahim Rasool, South Africa’s ambassador to the United States of America, questioned Cameron’s reference to an 800-year-old document in shaping modern-day Britain.

“I don’t think he’s understood what [Britishness] means in a multicultural society. He’s asserting values from the Magna Carta. It was a completely different society then – that’s a long time ago,” he said.

Rasool said British society is no longer defined by “white, Anglo-Saxon, English-speaking, fish ‘n’ chips-eating, Anglican-church-going people,” given the scale of the immigration into the country.

“Who will stand up to say: ‘Mr Prime Minister, we agree that we must be British, but let us discuss what it means to be British today’,” he asked. The responses to Cameron’s remarks come in the wake of the scandal over “Operation Trojan Horse,” an alleged extremist plot to impose Muslim cultural norms in some schools ...pupils were taught that white women were “prostitutes” and that evolution is untrue.

Tell me, Mr. “Rasool”... if white, anglo-saxon folks decide to go and move en masse into some of YOUR Third World muslim crapholes and demand that THEY become a “multicultural society”, how would that go over?

I find it interesting how these people feel the need to move into existing, stable, prosperous societies that OUR people created, and turn them into crapholes, all the while demanding that we recognize them and facilitate our own demise.

When do the Muslim nations start becoming "multicultural," hmmm?

Let me know when Jews and Christians are allowed to visit Mecca, and when there are churches and synagogues built there.

Until then, every damn Muslim in any western nation needs to just STFU.

Pure BS, unless the British legal system has adopted Sharia Law recently. Everywhere Muslims live, they form small groups and over the years expand the neighborhood to the point where they demand that Sharia Law be accepted by law enforcement external to the local community. Look at France and Detroit for current examples.

Islamic law is adopted by British legal chiefs

Solicitors told how to draw up Sharia-style wills penalising widows and non-believers

Sharia principles are to become enshrined in the UK legal system for the first time, with The Law Society publishing guidelines for drawing up documents according to Islamic rules, which would exclude non-believers and encroach on women’s rights.

Sharia law only recognizes Muslim weddings, so anyone who was married in a Christian church or in a civil ceremony would also be excluded from succession.

They would eat fish and chips only if the government mandated they were certified halal and were not prepared or served by women.

Assuming you're a Brit or Canadian I posted that photo to point out that not all British moslems are "as British as fish & chips".I read a year or two ago of a nationwide poll that was conducted of British moslems which indicated that half of those moslems supported the 9/11 attacks and 33% supported the 7/7 London Underground attacks.

British as fish & chips indeed!

Not to mention the 40% of muzzies in UK who support the imposing of Shariah law everywhere in Britain.

BTW, I’m not British, I’m a Yank who has great regard for Her Majesty. She is a lovely lady & a Queen beloved by her people. Britain is still our closest ally, after all.

IIRC, the evil Choudary put up that sign AFTER demanding than the Royal Family convert to Islam! As the muzzies demand, convert, submit, or die! His wicked `religion’ is now coming to foul fruition in the killing fields of Iraq, and it’s time we “infidels” finally turn against these worthless Mohammedans!

“Rasool said British society is no longer defined by “white, Anglo-Saxon, English-speaking, fish ‘n’ chips-eating, Anglican-church-going people,””

So what you are really saying is that it is no longer British.
