Skip to comments.UK: Violent Muslims 'over-emphasised'
Posted on 10/14/2006 12:37:08 PM PDT by kiriath_jearim
The Mayor of London has condemned what he said was greater publicity given to Muslim extremists over and above non-Islamic groups.
Ken Livingstone told BBC radio too much emphasis was placed on Muslim extremism while the vast majority of faiths wanted to live together in harmony.
He said a situation had been reached where any comment by politicians on Muslims had "front page coverage".
His claims were endorsed by a spokesman from the London Muslim Centre.
The Mayor told the BBC Radio 4 Today programme: "There's a small - we're talking about a couple of hundred, no more than that - (number of) potentially violent people who happen to be Muslims.
"There's always going to be a small minority of people in any groups who are potentially violent; the vast majority of all faiths and races, certainly in this city, are committed to tolerance and working with one another."
The Mayor's remarks were echoed by Numan Hussain, a project manager at the London Muslim Centre which is an Islamic charity.
He said: "I wholeheartedly agree with what he has said.
"Especially during this holy month of Ramadan, we should all endorse peaceful people of all other faiths and live together in harmony.
"Too much emphasis is being placed on extremist elements in society."
This guy's a dyed-in-the-wool socialist; you wouldn't expect him to say or think any different.
Red Ken denying reality again - it's what he's best at.
He's as braindead as Bloomberg.
I'm sure he would have thought the same thing about German national socialists in the 30's.
Just maybe it's because the "small" "number of violent people who happen to be muslim" act out their fantasies and kill innocent people.
Red Ken & Galloway should be roommates.

Hmm..........seems we ONLY HAD 19 extremists on 9-11.
He's a proven idiot.
Well, if they would stop being violent and killing innocent people maybe it could be "de-emphasized" Livingstone, you knit-whit. But not until then, In the meant time we need to continue to hunt the bastards down and kill them for what they are doing.
Oh. Dear. God.
Kumbaya...or is that "ubutu" now?
Good work. The prosecution rests.
Someone on here once had a fantastic line regarding Muslims: It's the 80% that give the 20% a bad name.
Of course the violent ones get more attention. Its like if you have 30 school buses and one catches fire. Which bus do you think is the big story and makes the paper?
LOL! You are dangerous.
What has this nut job been smoking?
After all, most Muslims are up in arms against these extremists for slandering their religion of peace, and speak out broadly to condemn each attack. What? Those were not peaceful Muslims, just crickets speaking out after each attack? So sorry. Never mind.
