2. What British Muslims Think: A new documentary
Trevor Phillips has made a documentary delving into the beliefs of Muslims living in Britain. Politicians speak a lot about how important integration into society is when it comes to immigration.
Certainly, a big part of integrating into a society is taking on the set of beliefs of that society. After all, the beliefs and values form a great part of a country’s culture.
If the British wish to maintain their culture despite immigrants forming a large group of their population, it is critical that these immigrants accept and move towards British beliefs.

Northumbria Police have warned that “offensive” comments on the Internet will not be tolerated, tracking down users who made “potentially criminal” posts on social media about grooming gangs.
The force launched an investigation into comments left on its Facebook page in response to articles about the Operation Shelter scandal, in which young white British girls were groomed, sexually abused and trafficked by mostly Muslim men of South Asian descent in Newcastle.
Officers made a review of every comment on the page after a member of the public complained that a number of posts referred to the race and religion of the 18 people convicted following the operation.
The Breitbart article links to a related article quoting members of a Muslim grooming gang discussing how they view White, non-Muslim women.

They are risking their lives to bring freedom to Iran, and vow to continue their protests.
“These uprisings have just begun. People are not at all willing to give up,” one activist told Fox News from the streets of Iran.
“Their patience has come to an end and they have nothing to lose. Iran will surely not fall down and people will not retreat from their demands.”
The defiance comes as President Trump announced Friday that he is waving sanctions against Iran under the controversial 2015 nuclear deal one last time, and gave the European allies four months to change the terms of the agreement or he may seek to scrap it.
The protesters we talked to demand even harsher sanctions.
“They should impose major sanctions on the regime,” one protester demanded. Another added there “should be sanctions for human rights violations.”
