The UK's Channel 4 TV company ran an excellent documentary "Dispatches: The Muslim Reformation" on 1st May -
(Summary: Islamic teacher and reformer Tariq Ramadan explores the future of his faith, and presents evidence supporting his theory that European Muslims hold the key to the religion's next 100 years.

Topics Covered:

* Liberalism within Islam
* Literal vs contextual interpretation of the Koran
* Ijtihad
* Patriotism, education, feminism

For those wishing to escape the bigotry and propaganda for something a little more balanced and informed about what is happening within the Muslim communities in and across Europe I recommend a look at this show.

It can be found here -

Patriotism is an interesting thing, all the moderate Muslims protest in the UK wave the Union flag. i dont see what the problem is with Muslims at the end of the day.

- That's a shame it was a very interesting show......but surely it's no big deal to join to see it?

Did you try UKNOVA (I know it is there but you have to join that one)?
