Deadly Diversity

1 in 3 Muslim students in the U.K. support killing in Islam's name:

The report of this finding, based on a poll of 600 Muslim and 800 non-Muslim students at 12 universities in the UK, and conducted by YouGov on behalf of the Center for Social Cohesion, will be released tomorrow as "Islam on Campus."

Among its findings of Muslim beliefs:

1.) 40 per cent support introduction of sharia into British law for Muslims

2.) One-third back the idea of a worldwide Islamic caliphate based on sharia law

3.) 40 per believe it is unacceptable for Muslim men and women to associate freely

4.) 24 per cent do not think men and women are equal in the eyes of Allah

5.) 25 percent have little or no respect for homosexuals.

6.) 53 per cent believe killing in the name of religion is never justified (compared with 94 per cent of non-Muslims), while 32 per cent say it is

7.) 57 percent believe Muslim soldiers serving in the UK military should be able to refuse duty in Muslim countries

8.) More than half favor an Islamic political party to support their views in parliament

9.) One-third don't think or don't know if Islam is compatible with Western views of democracy

The report echoes one released last year by the Policy Exchange which found 37% of all Muslims aged 16-24 would prefer to live under a sharia system.

In addition to polling of 1,400 students, the researchers visited more than 20 universities to interview students and listen to guest speakers brought on campus. The report notes radical Islamic preachers regularly deliver inflammatory speeches that target homosexuals and border on anti-Semitism.

The authors of the report note that campus Islamic societies have, in the past, been where some UK terrorists became radicalized. They cite Kafeel Ahmed, who drove a jeep engulfed in flames into a building at the Glasgow airport last year and died of his burns. Investigators believe he adopted jihadist beliefs while studying at Anglia Ruskin university, Cambridge.

This is an inevitable result of multiculturalism, "diversity," and pluralism, and should surprise no one. When you open wide the floodgates and allow into your borders those who do not share your paradigm, your language, culture, or values, a great expectation of societal cohesion and harmony becomes as realistic as a John Lennon song composed after he hit the hash pipe.

When a country embraces "The Other" in massive numbers it gives up its identity and becomes a new and altogether different entity. After all, why would "The Other" merge itself with you, when you're prefectly willing to let it devour you, instead.
