UK: Muslims praised by Brown

Gordon Brown last night paid tribute to British Muslims as "modern heroes" who brought hope and idealism to the country. The Chancellor said they had contributed to Britain spiritually and economically because Islam was a religion that encouraged fair play, social justice and equality. "Islam teaches us that we are all part of one moral universe, that humanity is intertwined and interlinked like different parts of a human body, reflecting each other's condition. This is a universal moral principle we can all learn from," he said. Many of Britain's 1.5 million Muslims supported Labour until the Iraq war and the party is now working hard to try to win them back. "As Chancellor, I want in particular to thank you for the enormous contribution the Muslim community makes to our economy. I have learnt much from your entrepreneurial flair and talent," Mr Brown said in a speech at the Muslim News awards for excellence. He went on: "So I want to honour you and members of the Muslim community as our modern heroes: standing for the highest ideals, bearing burdens, and bringing hope to Britain."

Some 30^% of muslim families from pakistan and Bangladesh have not one person employed in the family. As muslim families are 2 to 3 times larger then the norm, it gives an indication of the huge number of people that are on welfare. All of these people have virtually no marketable skills and will remain unemployed (very likely voluntarily), for the rest of their lives. At 65 they will all be eligible for a state pension, whether they have worked or not. And yet the cry goes out that we need muslim immigrant workers to fund the pensions gap.

Britain's muslims certainly have been as assett to Mr Brown. Brown is an old labour socialist whose idea is that everyone should be dependent on the state. Those who wish to be independent are deemed as rebels. These welfare dependents can be depended on to vote Labour come the election.

It was said that the West will sell rope to those who wish to hang it. Not so now. We will give away our culture for a vote.
