UK: You must be nicer to Muslims, says the UN

File this under "And you can Bite Me"

Britain was told yesterday by a United Nations committee to take firm action to combat 'negative public attitudes' towards Muslims.

The nine-member human rights committee also criticised some of the UK's antiterror measures. The body, which is composed of legal experts, said it was concerned ' negative public attitudes towards Muslim members of society' continued to develop in Britain.


As always, the real gold is in the comments:

"Get knotted!" - Vince West London.
"After Rwanda and Darfur to mention two of its many complete failures, there is little future for the UN. No UK government should take any lectures from it - and certainly not on the subject of religion. We have freedom of speech - we can say what the hell we like about Islam. Muslims are treated according to their own behaviour and attitude as everyone else is. What are the UN suggesting - some kind of thought police? To hell with them." - Chris, Walsall.
Imagine my surprise to read that foreigners are telling us how to run out country AGAIN! The sooner the EU and UN realise that this is our home and we make the rules the better. Our Government needs to start representing and standing up for US not bend over and cowtow to people who don't have to live here. If people who have freely chosen to come to our country don't like what they find then they can freely leave again. If I went to Saudi Arabia and was caught drinking then punished to the full extent of their law would the UN tell them to take a softer stance on Christians? I think not!" - Tim Macgregor, Dromore NI.
Having lived in a northern town for many years, which is dominated by Muslims, who are openly hostile with many ghettos being no go areas. Where it is unsafe to drive through these areas without being threatened by Muslim youths, Britain as a whole has bent over backwards to help these Muslims but the problem continues to get worse. The Hindu, and Sikhs have integrated very well, despite adhering to their faiths. Why can't Muslims follow their example? - AFP, France.
We have enough do-gooders of our own who have effectively destroyed our society. We most certainly do not need outside help. - Christina, Lesmahagow Lanark.
On your bike! - Cara, Surrey.
