However, the report also highlights the pernicious effect of Saudi funding and in particular of the evil, divisive and Islamist effects of Deobandism, Salafism and Wahhabism in the UK. The survey found that 71% of Muslims 'identify with their mosque and see it as representing their views' - a worrying high percentage if applied to the radical Saudi sponsored mosques promoting Islamist terrorism. Saudi denials of its involvement in 9/11 are clearly finding a hearing in the Moslem community - some 31% of Muslims think the US was responsible for the terrorist atrocity, 7% blame the Jews and only 4% admit that an Islamist terror organisation of Saudi origin was responsible.
Whilst the majority of British Muslims are peaceable and responsible citizens, there are concernedly high percentages of those advocating violence, Sharia and Islamism in the UK, in complete contravention of the rules laid down by the government. A worrying percentage - 26% - deny that there is any extremism in the UK at all.
The self-appointed Muslim Council of Britain enjoys little confidence amongst Muslims, which is encouraging. The official credence given to this spurious and unhelpful cabal will now hopefully be on the wane, along with any tax money.
Further action toward integration is needed in several areas:
- The banning of all Saudi finance to mosques or Islamic organisations in the UK
- Registration required for all imams to practice - with Wahhabi, Deobandi and Salafi imams refused registration
- Imams who are both non-UK citizens and unregistered to be deported
- Further extension of 'Prevent' to decrease high levels of support for Islamist actions
- Schools to counter Muslim 'denial' over 9/11 and extremism, using as a blueprint the methods used to de-nazify German schools in 1945 - 1950
