Default Re: God, Globalization, and the End of the War on Terror (Reihan Salam & Reza Aslan)

Aslan is being 100% dishonest when he says that European Muslims (esp. British) are forever saying to him that since they speak, act, behave, and dress like the non-Muslim populations, why aren't they being fully accepted?

No honest person in Britain, even the most partisan Muslim, could claim such a thing with a straight face and a clear conscience. The overwhelming majority of Muslims in the UK, well over 90%, are actively self-segregating. They do not, as an empirical fact dress, behave and mix socially with the rest of us, as he dishonestly claimed. The overwhelming majority of British Muslims are of pakistani extraction, and they were self-segregating on arrival and this has only increased since Rushdie and 9/11. The overwhelming majority, as every opinion poll has shown, are against genuine free speech, against gender equality of oppurtunity, and are homophobic.

He can dance around these verifiable facts all he likes, but ignoring the truth won't make it go away, and neither will it make the rest of us blind.
