What do muslims really think?

If you’ve ever wondered what our muslim neighbours think about things like freedom, democracy, Western values and their new home here in Wales, the results of these polls may be of interest to you.

Of course many muslims are good decent people and may make good neighbours, but the values inherent in Islam are concerning.

The religion of peace contains a supremacist political ideology and remains opposed to many of our values of including freedom of expression and democratic principles.

If nothing else, the result of these polls shows we need to start start an open and frank discussion with our muslim neighbours. We also need to get firm on practices in the muslim community, such as female genital mutilation (which is on the rise in Wales) and reassert our values of common decency.

But the dialogue has to start. It is no longer acceptable to pander to the victim card being played, or give false praise of ‘cultural diversity.’

    Before you use the London bombings as your excuse for right wing hatred, Please be aware that they were just more scare mongering from your earlier mentioned FEAR MONGERS you are doing the same here! I am an advocate for a free wales and an anarchist. So if you are so appalled with english hate/fear mongering, why do you use the same tactics as them? I am an emergency specialist Nurse/paramedic. I was trained by the british military to recognise differing types of explosions and burns. I worked through the London bombing and I am appalled that, what could be such a positive attempt at a free Wales, should dirty with the same english machiavellian lies.
    The London bombings were a false flag hoax.
    Before you start with patriotic mumbo hate nonsense were you there and do you know the difference between a peroxide IED and a military grade explosion. If no, then please revise this racist page it is so far from what seemed to be your mission.
    I know Muslim families that have been in the uk for 300 years and the english were only invented about 800 years ago, so by your own standard how long does it take to become british?
    Your pole of muslims above actually contradicts your argument, as it shows that the minority of muslims are fundamental extremists and most do not support the violence.
    Are the idiots who conducted operation Julie the voice of Welsh Nationalism or the cowards who surreptitiously burned holiday homes in the 70’s? I hope your answer is no as it was pathetic and achieved little. As are these muslim fundamentalists.
    Minority does not represent majority (which is a part of your antienglish movement) so if you do not want muslims, then do not be so small minded, the English must go too and Sikhs and any other minority group, though please bare in mind Wales is a minority group.
    Also why do you want to have a government?
    Wales and the Welsh language/culture stayed alive because we were tribal anarchists. Stop using english models of control.

    The Welsh language stayed alive because the Bible was translated into Welsh and only in the home and church could they use it.
