Three-quarters of non-Muslims believe Islam has provided a negative contribution to British society, according to a new poll, which has prompted calls for Muslims to help improve the perception of their faith.
The UK is a centerpiece for Muslim immigration to the West. For decades the UK has bent over backwards to express its multiculturalism through accommodations to even the most unreasonable demands by Islamists. Anyone opposing this strategy or calling it appeasement was branded a "bigot" or "Islamophobe."
In one startling example of the government's policy, government leaders capitulated to Muslim opposition to Dutch Parliamentarian Geert Wilders coming to London to show his documentary Fitna. When Wilders landed in London, government officials refused to allow him to enter the country.
There have been two remarkable consequences to the government's efforts. First, two different polls over the past five years have revealed that the children of Muslim immigrants are more radical than their parents. So much for the notion that accommodation will mitigate radicalization. Appeasement has only emboldened the Islamists.
The second consequence is revealed below: a recent poll revealing that 75% of non-Muslims view Islam as a negative for the UK.
