This is a short excerpt from a BBC programme shown this week.
The actual programme was 60 mins, and dealt with the extremism, both Islamic and extreme right wing, that has made Luton notorious, a town previously known for its soccer team (which was the team of Britain’s most beloved comedian, Eric Morecambe) and a mention in a classic British TV advert. Half the programme looked at the Islamic extremists, half at the EDL.
What this short clip DOSENT show is that the young presenter (Stacey Dooley) also met Islamic groups in Luton who are actively trying to combat the vile extremists you see in the clip. She went to Muslim youth groups and mosques who, with local and national help, are successfully steering young vulnerable Luton muslim youth away from the appalling crap you see in the clip.
What the short clip dosent show is that the scum you see in the clip were barely 100 Muslims. And that the group pictured is a minority in Luton. Luton is a town with a pop. of 250000, of which the programme said 30000 are Muslim. Of that this extremist group, again according to the BBC programme, number around 100.
So whilst there IS a vile, extremist minority in Luton, and they are a group that should be watched and harshly dealt with, they are a tiny minority even within their own community. And as I said, the programme showed that community is taking steps to combat them. To lessen any power or attraction they may have.
The programme was actually very good, as it let the extremist Muslims in Luton hang themselves by their own petard, they came across as ignorant nutcases. Pretty vile people. I dont anyone, Muslim or otherwise, would have been ‘attracted’ by what they said in the programme. If anything, their idiotic rantings to camera will have done the opposite.
That is what illustrates the dangers faced by Americans. Political correctness and a president who clearly sympathizes with the Caliphate have resulted in giving minorities a distinct advantage.
Thanks for the info.
If it is such a small minority, then there should be no problem getting them the heck out of any country and back to where they can live as they choose. The “moderate” muslims can join forces with the Brits and get this accomplished.
If countries get rid of the extremists right away, their hatred won’t begin to spread.
If they do not like the way we live move back to the dark age countries and rot..I am very angry at the savages that murdered our service men last week..
