HOME AFFAIRS – MUSLIM MODERATES & EXTREMISTS – 6 February 2006

Dr Julian Lewis: Is it not significant that the very people who were behaving [at the London demonstration on 3  February] in the way that has so outraged the House are also the very people who would have supported the original atrocities that led to the ill-considered cartoons in the first place? Is not the one good thing to come out of all this the fact that the leaders of the moderate Muslim majority have passed with flying colours the test that so many people set when they asked them to come out and condemn the extremists? Let us hope that they will continue to do that.
