Islam Threatens Democracy?
August 29, 2006 § 3 Comments
“The alleged plot to blow up transatlantic airliners and last year’s terrorist attacks on London have made more people fear Islam as a religion, not merely its extremist elements, a poll for The Daily Telegraph has found.
A growing number of people fear that the country faces “a Muslim problem” and more than half of the respondents to the YouGov survey said that Islam posed a threat to Western liberal democracy.” (P. Johnston, Telegraph)
This statement was recently cited on Lawrence Kudlow’s blog. Lawrence Kudlow is a nationally syndicated columnist of CNBC’s Kudlow and Company and is also on a few radio shows and things… anyway, on a post entitled, “Majority of Brits Fear Islam“, Kudlow’s readers seem to agree that “Islam” is a threat to democracy. I have heard much talk about Muslims, “radical Muslims” and “Islamic extremists” being a threat… but now Islam (un-hyphenated) is being targeted in the mainstream media.
