When former drug dealer and now born again Christian Paul Ray wrote in his blog that the Muslim drug gangs in his hometown of Luton were "savages," he was arrested on suspicion of a hate crime.
"It's ok for the Muslims to do what they're doing, and no one arrests them, but then if we start saying and disagreeing with what's actually happening, then we're breaching community cohesion and we get arrested for it," he explained.
Ray fled Britain after this interview, because of threats against his life from Muslim gangs.
Whole sections of Britain are now considered dangerous "no-go zones" for non-Muslims.

"They're discriminating against the majority people in Europe now in favor of the Islamists and Muslims." he added. "The way we're going, we're going to be taken back to the stoning age. That's what's going to happen to this country."
But at least one study shows that most British Muslims don't want sharia law. A lot of British Muslims came here to escape it. Yet it might be foisted on them anyway by political leaders.
It's clear that multiculturalism and political correctness have backfired badly. The hardcore Islamists have not been assimilated, but the nation's confidence in democracy and Christian civilization has been sapped, and its will to resist the cultural aggressiveness of radical Islam has been weakened.
