There is growing unease in the UK with the relationship between Islam and the Muslim communities and the rest of UK society.
It seems that conflict is growing and many are concerned with what they perceive to be creeping Islamification.
I've got to say I share many of the concerns and feel these issues need to be addressed as a matter of urgency.
But I am really beginning to question the purpose for this conflict.
Whose interests are being served by this constant conflict?
Certainly not Muslims who are becoming increasingly vilified and marginalised.
And certainly not non-Muslims who feel their culture and heritage is threatened by appeasement to Islam and Muslim sensibilities.
Yet it seems that the only official response to this conflict is indifference and a reluctance from successive governments to address core issues.
Other than the usual empty political rhetoric and one or two populist yet ultimately ineffective initiatives little effort has been made to resolve
And in the meantime emotions and passions run higher as the clash between two seemingly diametrically opposed viewpoints continues.
What we do have at present is a governement obsessed with reducing national debt.
Regardless of personal opinion most agree that the government persues this policy even to the exclusion of other issues that the British people have
real and genuine cares and concerns about and wish to be debated and addressed.
Again, regardless of viewpoint it's fair to say that Cameron has ensured that discussion centres on benefit payments and The Welfare State in
Whose interests are being served by doing this?
The poor, needy and vulnerable?
And now we have the current situation where we are being inundated with accusations and allegations of sexual assualts and paedophilia against old and
deceased 'celebrities' who apparently targetted teenage girls, many from care homes and special hospitals etc.
These crimes were abhorent and it's imperative that a full and open enquiry takes place and those found guilty punished to the fullest extent of the
But I wonder if the same level of inquiry will be given to allegations of paedophilia made against various ex-politicians and their aides?
I suspect that Saville and his evil cronies, and maybe one or two politicians will be deemed expendable, are to be offered up to the public as
sacrificial lambs to the slaughter whilst the nefarious deeds and nature of the incestuous relationship between senior politicians / industrialists /
judiciary / clergy / peerage / civil servants and police etc continues unreported and unaffected.
Much in the same way that by concentrating on the relatively low cost of benefit fraud and the loopholes within the benefit system avoids discussion
on the far more costly crime of tax avoidance and evasion.
Is it coincidence that it is the same unholy alliance of elites who benefit most from tax avoidance and evasion?
And so back to my initial point.
Who benefits from the conflict between Islam and the rest of UK society?
There are major issues that need to be addressed and until such time that a government makes a real, honest and concerted effort to resolve these
issues then this conflict will continue, and probably increase.
If that happens then maybe we will turn our attention towards those who allowed this conflict to happen in the first place and whose policies allowed
it to continue and grow.
And they are the self same people who benefit from most of the divisions and injustices within our society and use deflection tactics at every
opportunity to avoid attention upon themselves and to maintain the status quo.
They lecture on the lack of morals within society whilst displaying a complete lack of moral fortitude and dispay a total lack of regard for the
people of the UK.
This unholy alliance seeks to maintain, and increase if possible, it's influence and control over UK society and live above the laws they impose upon
the rest of us - and defelction and division are two of the most common tools they use to achieve this.
