London aftermath

Dan Gillmore quotes Milverton Wallace: Guest Posting: The Muslim Community of London.

I talked to many of the young Muslim lads I’ve known since they were babies, and I talked to their parents. And guess what? The parents are shocked, the youngsters gleeful. Go figure. The leaders of the Muslim Council of Britain can issue as many statements of solidarity and sympathy as they like; the facts are that many of their children rejoiced after the carnage in New York and they rejoiced after the slaughter in London yesterday.

I’d be interested to find out what the polls say Muslims in France and Germany are thinking. According to Wikipedia, there are approximately 3.7 million Muslims (mostly of Turkish descent) living in Germany, roughly 4.5 percent of the population. In France, there are about 5-6 million Muslims, or 7-10 percent of the population. Britain itself has another 1.6 million Muslim, which equals about 2.7 percent of the population.
