Is the BBC frightened of criticising Islam?


Are there fewer criticisms of Islamism, Sharia Law, etc. in Britain because anti-racism laws and general fear of an Islamic threats make Brits afraid? Jonathan Petre seems to think so – at least if we can take his criticism of the BBC as indicative and I believe we can.

“The Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu, has accused the BBC of bias against Christianity and says the broadcaster fears a terrorist backlash if it is critical of Islam.

“The archbishop, the second most senior figure in the Church of England's hierarchy, said Christians took ‘more knocks’ than other faiths at the hands of the BBC.

"’They can do to us what they dare not do to the Muslims,’ he said. ‘We are fair game because they can get away with it. We don't go down there and say, 'We are going to bomb your place.' That is not in our nature.

“The Ugandan-born archbishop nevertheless said Christians must be more forceful in promoting their beliefs.”

COMMENT: Liberal pacifists criticize war saying “there must be a better way.” There isn’t a ‘better’ way, but there is ‘another’ way, capitulation, which pacifists are good at. In this case, the might of Islamic threats has intimidated the BBC according to Sentamu. I have read elsewhere that common people are afraid to speak out because anti-racist laws may be applied to them. It would seem that British citizens at all levels are being shut up so Sharia Law can advance unchallenged.
