Foreign policy to blame


'...[T]here is almost no support for terrorism amongst the Muslim community'. Of course, there's no way of telling how truthful respondents to such surveys have been and, therefore, no way of telling the value of such surveys. This is because of that well-known social phenomenon when dealing with unpleasantness: "Well, they would say that wouldn't they?"

'Many mainstream polls have shown higher rates of support for extremism... The difference is explained by the way questions are phrased'. This is true but still doesn't address the fundamental fact mentioned in the previous paragraph, as well as the fact that surveys are commissioned precisely as an attempt to prove pre-existing prejudices. You can bet your bottom dollar that The 1990 Trust would be reporting differently on this survey if it had concluded that Muslims secretly-harbour terroristic thoughts.

'The 1990 Trust survey believes that British Muslims have tried very hard to integrate into society, but daily media attacks - such as controversy surrounding the Niqab veil - have increased feelings of isolation'. As always with The 1990 Trust, They claim that Blacks are trying hard to integrate into a racist society that They acknowledge as racist! This means they accept that racial integration is a form of political (self-inflicted racist) masochism. If so, then why engage in it? They surely can't be so lonely as to want to be on friendly terms with racists, can they?

Because Whites are very unlikely to believe the results of this survey, for the reasons above, it's very hard to know what The 1990 Trust believes it can achieve with it, save Their desperate hope that Whites will one day learn to accept Muslims as equals - some hope!
