With a community of around 3.5 million people, Britain has fewer Muslims than France. But while the British media regularly covers France’s blighted banlieues and the outrage sparked by the French ban on veils in public institutions, it often overlooks the excesses of unchecked, unregulated multiculturalism back home.

A 2010, BBC Panorama report found more than 40 Saudi Students’ Schools and Clubs in the UK and Ireland were using Saudi textbooks, many of them with anti-Semitism or homophobic messages. The Panorama team found books explaining the details of Sharia amputations for thieves.

Sharia courts continue to operate across the UK despite a 2016 government inquiry into the treatment of women by such courts. A number of British Muslim women’s rights groups have opposed the sharia courts, but they continue to operate behind closed doors.

This blog about universities has long followed the reduction of a few British campuses to medieval nightmares. They spawn beheaders. They sponsor guest speakers who call for the deaths of homosexuals and Jews and apostates.

Theresa May is even – reportedly – looking into a burqa ban, something an overwhelming majority of British people have supported for years.
