Islamic Values vs. British Values

Al Ghurabaa' is a radical Muslim group in the UK. Recently they put out this sticker, comparing Islamic Values to British Values (hat tip to Klein Verzet)


Needless to say, it is those same British values they despise that allows them to express such ungrateful views.

Of course, British people do gamble (casino in Jericho) and exploit others (oil embargo, Danish boycott). I have no doubt that there are many Muslims who stick to the high values listed above, but there are also many Muslims who show a different example.

I was toying around with this as an exercise in freedom of speech.

using standard survey research methods, the reputable YouGov polling firm interviewed 526 Muslim adults across Great Britain online during July 15-22 2005, weighing the data to reflect the British Muslim population's age, gender, and countries of origin. The survey found that 1 percent of them, or "about 16,000 individuals, declare themselves willing, possibly even eager, to embrace violence" in the effort to bring an end to "decadent and immoral" Western society.

Should their ranks really be so thick, such a huge number of potential terrorists could cause an unprecedented security crisis for Britain, with all the attendant economic, social, political, and cultural ramifications one can imagine.

The YouGov survey contains many other statistics that should interest, if not shock, Britons and other Westerners.

Muslims who see the 7/7 bombing attacks in London as justified on balance: 6 percent.
Who feel sympathy for the "feelings and motives" of those who carried out the 7/7 attacks: 24 percent.
Understand "why some people behave in that way": 56 percent.
Disagree with Tony Blair's description of the ideology of the London bombers as "perverted and poisonous": 26 percent.
Feel not loyal towards Britain: 16 percent.
Agree that "Western society is decadent and immoral and that Muslims should seek to bring it to an end": 32 percent willing to use non-violent means and (as noted above) 1 percent willing to use violence "if necessary." Just 56 percent of Muslims agree with the statement that "Western society may not be perfect but Muslims should live with it and not seek to bring it to an end."
Agree that "British political leaders don't mean it when they talk about equality. They regard the lives of white British people as more valuable than the lives of British Muslims": 52 percent.
Dismiss political party leaders as insincere when saying "they respect Islam and want to co-operate with Britain's Muslim communities": 50 percent.
Doubt that anyone charged with and tried for the 7/7 attacks would receive a fair trial: 44 percent.
Would not inform on a Muslim religious leader "trying to 'radicalise' young Muslims by preaching hatred against the West": 10 percent.
Do not think people have a duty to go to the police if they "see something in the community that makes them feel suspicious": 14 percent.
Believe other Muslims would be reluctant to go to the police "about anything they see that makes them suspicious": 41 percent.
Would inform the police if they believed they knew about the possible planning of a terrorist attack: 73 percent. (In this case, the Daily Telegraph did not make available the negative percentage.)
