July 7 Bombings

This week Tony Blair said it is the job of “moderate” Muslims to root out the extremists in their midst. Given that the biggest extremist in UK society is the Prime Minister himself, they face an impossible task. Also, what is this “moderate Muslim” nonsense? Moderate seems to be the exception when you are a Muslim. Nobody calls the Prime Minister a moderate moron. He is simply a moron. Were he not he would not talk of “the Muslim community”. Which community? Muslims are as riven by differences as other religious groupings. Take an Iranian lawyer, shia, who drinks. What has he in common with a pious, sunni, Bangladeshi mini-cab driver? Not much. In fact, if after a night’s drinking the Iranian were to use the Bangladeshi’s cab service, he might still be overcharged.
