    um, in this case, its because there have been several high-profile cases of groups of 'Asian' men (virtually all Muslim, most from Pakistan) systematically raping huge numbers of mostly non-muslim girls ('white' girls, though Hindu and Sikh communities have reported attacks on their communities):

    While the native white population certainly has its own major issues in this area*, it seems pretty obvious that there's a huge racial and/or religious element to these series of crimes, separate from any larger British issues with pedophilia and highly suggestive of a specified problem that is not adequately addressed due to fears of being accused of 'Islamophobia', which is the context for the authors choice of words. I agree it sounds suspicious without that context, however.

    Our planet has come rather small lately, don't you think? Wake up to the realities of the modern world. Immigration is an asset. It must not and cannot be halted. Globalism is here to stay.
    I suspect you're trolling.

    Of course today, the word, Fundamentalism, is applied to other religions as well as USA Protestantism, such as Islam and even Hinduism.
    The term is separate from the practice. Go read for example Jonathan Edwards' Sinners in the Hands of An Angry God.
    Or you can go further back to the Protestant reformation, or even worse, splinter groups and heresies such as the Anabaptists.

    (Edwards graduated from Yale at age 17. First in his class. Back in the days when admission was difficult: e.g. I once read the 1846 admission guide to Harvard, where you had to demonstrate a reading knowledge of Latin at the level of Cicero in order to get *IN*.)

    What is the connection between blood and land?

    Reminds me of what happened in late '70s, early- mid 80s, in Britain, and the rampant racism targeted at South Asian and Afro-Caribbean communities. If you don't learn from the lessons in history, you're bound to repeat them.

    Right? The British Empire didn't have a "right" to be in India. They took it, by force. Land has, and will continue to be, exchanged between groups of people, for as long as we are alive. No one can claim absolute authority over it, that cannot be overturned in the future.

    The fact that racism (a recognition of group differences and a desire to be amongst your own kind) is also natural, likewise is abhorrent to you.
    This is not the definition of racism.

    Also: my mom would be the first to tell you that her grandkids have opened her eyes to a lot of ways her upbringing reinforced prejudice, and she appreciates it.
    Grandchildren are great.
    Thanks, Ivy.

    Sorry, you're on your own there.

    But if ex-KKK members can be reformed, there's hope for pretty much everyone.

    Well, blood is often spilled on account of land...

    Mohomed himself had sex slave wives and had an underage wife. And although he probably treated them well there is no denying that that these aspects influenze his followers' mentalities greatly esp since he is the prophet of god they believe and his actions were influenzed by an almighty god they believe in. If there is any reason why chaos doesn't fall upon all islamic nations and communities it is because of humanity in their followers, secularism and the fear of the law.

    But hey they are insisting on implementing sharia law in england aren't they? And of course the politically correct spineless polititians would probably allow it to be implemented because if it's not allowed it's a fundamental human rights violation is it not? Because islam is in a unique position of having a religion and a system of law. Denying one or the other means denying a fundamental right of religious intolerance.

    Sharia law probably has rules against gang rape but if the prophet of god can have a few sex slave wives and an underage wife why can't its pios followers rape a few women who don't have the decency to cover their bodies, have no male guardians them and readily have sex outside marriage.

    Wake up england (and europe)!

    Here in south asia and east asia we have been dealing with similar or worse scenarios. (Africa is also plagued by it). But until a nation in the permanent UN security council raises its voice or a gloriously developed secular european nations raises its voice the rest -esp third world countires like ours - have to watch out tongues.

    ^ hate speech right?
