The Danger of Multi-cultural Society
This is exactly what radical Islamic factions want - today's news that British passengers refused to board a flight from Spain to Manchester because there were "two young Muslims" on board. There has been a substantial rise in "Islamaphobia" since the recent thwarting of the air plot in the UK, but this defies logic when blanket perceptions are made. This type of racial stereotyping only assists the fanatics cause, as it further alienates the Muslim population within Britain against a perceived backdrop of community oppression and only serves to radicalise the youth.
