(FLASHBACK) Survey: Most UK Muslims wouldn't report terror plans to police

In April, 2016, I devoted my show's monologue to a shocking survey of British Muslims, and a UK TV report on the results. I'm re-posting it here, now, because it ties in all too well with this week's Islamic terrorist attack in Manchester.

What made that Channel 4 report so startling was that is was hosted by Trevor Phillips, the former Chair of the UK Equality and Human Rights Commission. 

Twenty years earlier, Phillips had helped popularize the term "Islamophobia," and assured Britons that Muslim immigrants would integrate into British society, just like every other ethnic group.

In 2016, in the wake of Islamic terrorist atrocities at home and abroad, Phillips admitted he'd been wrong.

This survey of UK Muslims revealed some disturbing attitudes towards Jews and gays.

Particularly timely, since the bombing of a Manchester concert on May 22, was the number of Muslims who said they would report terrorist plots to the authorities.

The entire survey is here, as is Phillips' sobering Channel 4 report.

Well to be fair i might not be inclined to report an attack on certain targets, like some Hollywood awards show or a plot to behead Justin. I would not want to get in Karmas way.

I believe Philips to be a principled human rights activist who genuinely believes in the concepts of basic human dignity transposed to legal rights – I get that – but he is also a man who was duped by the narratives about Islam (much of it taqiya) and as an honest man, reported on the utter failure of Islam to adopt to ethically evolved cultures.

I do not believe the figures presented in these polls for that same reason – taqiya – the real figures are probably much more shocking.

I am not surprised Trevor Phillips has revised his opinion, reality has a way of doing that!

The title and the your second last paragraph don’t match.
