Tebbit attacks 'unreformed' Islam
UK: I have no idea who this Lord Tebbit is but on Multicult, I'm agreeing with him.
|Islam is so unreformed there have been no real advance in art, literature, science or technology in the Muslim world in 500 years, Lord Tebbit says. Multiculturalism is in danger of undermining British society, the former Conservative Party chairman also tells the e-politix website. In the 1980s he questioned the loyalty of immigrants who backed cricket teams from their countries of origin. Now he says if he had been heeded it might have stopped the London bombings. "I do think had my comments been acted on those attacks would have been less likely," Lord Tebbit told the website. "What I was saying about the so-called 'cricket test' is that it was a test of whether a community has integrated. Multicultural society "If a community was looking back at where it had come from instead of looking forward with the people to whom they had come to, then there is going to be a problem sooner or later." Lord Tebbit said multicultural society was "an impossibility" because if there were two cultures there would also be two societies. "A society is defined by its culture. It is not defined by its race, it is not a matter of skin colour or ethnicity, it is a matter of culture. "If you have two societies in the same place then you are going to have problems, like the kind we saw on 7 July, sooner or later," he said. He warned London was "sinking into the same abyss that Londonderry and Belfast sank". Lord Tebbit also criticised Islam for holding back progress in countries where it was the dominant faith. "The Muslim religion is so unreformed since it was created that nowhere in the Muslim world has there been any real advance in science, or art or literature, or technology in the last 500 years," he said.|
