British Muslims Mull Leaving UK since Bombings

Well, you knew this was coming.....



Two-thirds of Muslims Thought of Leaving Britain

Two-thirds of British Muslims have considered leaving the country after the July 7 London bombings, a new poll reveals.
The figure shows that Muslims, to a considerable degree, fear anti-Muslim backlash in Britain due to the suicide attacks.

The Guardian/ICM poll of more than 1,000 British Muslims disclosed:

63 percent said they had thought about whether they want to remain in the UK. Among those aged 35 or over, the figure is 67 percent.

20 percent of those surveyed said that they or a family member have faced abuse or hostility from non-Muslim Britons since the bombings - meaning that tens of thousands of Britain's Muslims may have suffered from increased anti-Muslim sentiment.

80 percent believe that Britain's involvement in Iraq was a factor leading to the bombings, compared to about 65 percent of all Britons polled earlier this month.

57 percent said that Muslim clerics - and leaders - failure to root out extremists is a factor behind the bombings.

90 percent believe violence has no place in a political struggle.

But on a disturbing note, 5 percent said that more attacks would be justified.

And another poll commissioned by the London Daily Telegraph found that 10 percent of Muslims feel "not at all loyal" to Britain, 56 percent said they "can understand" why the bombers did what they did, and 1 percent - which would be 16,000 out of the nation's 1.6 million Muslims - feel that Western society is decadent and Muslims should seek to bring it to an end "if necessary by violence."
