Fear Mongering or Legitimate Concerns?

Republicans are always accused of fear mongering when it comes to National security, radical Islam and terrorism (of course when it's health care or global warming it's just voicing legitimate concerns...)

I often lament that by the time the boys are old enough to appreciate it and I have the money to take them to the UK, it really will be Londonstan and out of the question for offspring travel... This article didn't help to assuage my fears.

"...Jim Fitzpatrick, the Environment Minister, said the IFE [The Islamic Forum of Europe] had become, in effect, a secret party within Labour and other political parties.

“They are acting almost as an entryist organisation, placing people within the political parties, recruiting members to those political parties, trying to get individuals selected and elected so they can exercise political influence and power, whether it’s at local government level or national level,” he said.

“They are completely at odds with Labour’s programme, with our support for secularism.”

Mr Fitzpatrick, the MP for Poplar and Canning Town, said the IFE had infiltrated and “corrupted” his party in east London in the same way that the far-Left Militant Tendency did in the 1980s. Leaked Labour lists show a 110 per cent rise in party membership in one constituency in two years.

In a six-month investigation by this newspaper and Channel 4’s Dispatches, involving weeks of covert filming by the programme’s reporters:

* IFE activists boasted to the undercover reporters that they had already “consolidated … a lot of influence and power” over Tower Hamlets, a London borough council with a £1 billion budget. (Read the entire article)

Call it fear mongering, religious profiling, discrimination...whatever you want, but I have huge fear about this happening here. About domination by immigration (we went to Ikea in South Philly the other day and I swear I was the only one there without a Hijab on). And I fear a slow acceptance of Sharia law because of the tendency to cling to political correctness... Sadly, many Americans will cave to the pressure by Muslim groups even in the face of irrefutable evidence of the growing threats.
