State funding for Islamic groups

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

The British government is offering funding to Islamic groups that can “prove” they are tackling extremism.

Massoud Shadjareh of the Islamic Human Rights Commission says “The deliberate confusion surrounding the word extremism is a ploy by the government to use its financial muscle to socially engineer a new brand of Islam”.

Any complaints if the British government socially engineers a new brand of Islam that doesn’t involve terrorism, honour killings, genital mutilation, stoning women to death, hate preachers or spreading Islam by the sword?

The thought of my taxes being given to an alien¬†religious organisation on some vague promise that they’ll tell wannabe terrorists not to blow people up disgusts me but then so do the pathetic attempts of self-appointed muslim “community leaders” to portray muslims as the eternal victims.

    It’s the ‘community leaders’ who are the problem. They are all radicalised – the MCB, MPAC etc, and they can’t and don’t represent all muslims, who I think are a diverse lot. It is definitely their totalitarian orthodoxy we’re fighting, but there has to be a secular or western muslim ‘majority’ or potential majority that aren’t getting the airtime, either through fear of reprisal, or because they aren’t deemed newsworthy. We do need to tap into them.
