UK - 53% feel threatened by Islam

Is Britain finally waking up?

Most people in the UK feel threatened by Islam, a poll has revealed, after the Government launched a bid to tackle inter-faith tensions.

The YouGov survey for the Daily Telegraph found 53% were concerned about the impact of the religion - not just fundamentalist elements - up 21% from 2001.

There had also been a near doubling of the number agreeing that "a large proportion of British Muslims feel no sense of loyalty to this country and are prepared to condone or even carry out acts of terrorism".

Not surprising since 40% of Muslims in the UK want to adopt Islamic law and 25% think the 7/7 bombings were justified.
