Cameron woos the Muslim vote
It appears that Labour isn’t the only ones desperate for the Muslim vote. Cameron is too. In attempting to woo the Muslim vote Cameron has hit a new low. He has been living with a Muslim family for a few days.
He posted his account on his own blog here.
By his account you can tell that he wasn’t with a real Muslim. What were they doing in the local pub? Aren’t Muslims against alcohol?
It’s hard to over-emphasise the importance of language. I know it sounds like a side issue, but it isn’t. We are just not getting this right. Every time the BBC or a politician talks about “Islamist terrorists” they are doing immense harm (and yes I am sure I have done this too, despite trying hard to get this right.) Think of
I see Cameron is not aware that the IRA was not fighting on behalf of Catholicism but Islamic terrorists are fighting on behalf of Islam. If Cameron has not figured that out yet he really lacks basic judgement and should never be Prime Minister.
