No, most don't resort to violence. Most are perfectly fine people, but there does seem to be a sizeable minority who have polar opposite views to our own. From the sexual exploitation of children, to child marriage even, to FGM, right the way through to the extreme end of the scale including Jihad and murder, there are plenty in the UK who fit the bill and even more who sympathise behind closed doors for them.
Sticking your head in the sand and shouting "racist" doesn't help - in fact, it makes the problem worse.

Why do you think I keep mentioning the Woolwich killing?
Do I need to spell it out for you? I'll start with the letter B.....
Given that beheading is something that has been tied to Islamic extremism, given that Islamic extremism is(debatably, I'll admit) more common than most will admit. Add to that the recent much disputed videos and what do you expect?
You never answered my first question: Are you going to "buy" the official version of events this time?

Why? okay lets turn what you said around.
If your child kills another you should go to jail also.
Many of the parents of the people gone to ISIS have spoken out and want their kids back.
Oh and reading more into this I think it was a mentally ill person not a terror attack etc.
This speech - supposedly made by Houari Boumedienne, president of Algeria at the United Nations in 1974- is often quoted on Counterjihad or Counter European Genocide blogs, but I've never been able to find a solid source for it. I'd like to establish whether it is apocryphal or genuine.
The book "North Africa: contemporary politics and economic development" by Richard I. Lawless and Allan I. Findlay refers to "his remarkable address to the Extraordinary Session of the United Nations General Assembly on Primary Commodities (convened at his request) on 10 April 1974." It also says that Boumedienne "visited the USA only on the above-mentioned occasion." So, if Boumedienne did make these remarks to the UN, it must have been in that speech because this was the only time he ever visited the United States.
There is more information about the UN session here: Declaration on the Establishment of a New International Economic Order.
The speech is shown in the video above. Unfortunately, it's in Arabic and I can't understand Arabic. Occasionally, people who do understand Arabic visit this blog. So, if you can understand Arabic, please listen to the speech and then tell us in a comment whether it contains the remark quoted above. If it doesn't, we'll have to conclude that this quote is apocryphal.
