Religious Bigotry and Incitement

Anybody have a view on the Foreign Office's decision to allow the recent visit by a known Islamic extremist preacher (apologies, I've forgotten his name), despite advice from our own diplomatic service?

Is UK plc proving to the world that it will put up with any amount of subversion in the name of free speech, or is the FO filled with a bunch of pillocks?

Their reasoning is certainly novel. The moderate Muslim community have condemned the invitation as being counterproductive to the objective of community cohesion. So in response the invitation goes ahead. My understanding of the FO's "reasoning" is that by inviting Delwar Hossain Sayeedi into Britain they are allowing a major player to share his views, and engaging with a key influential figure in the Islamic world. The problem is, as has been pointed out to them by British diplomats and the moderate British Muslim community (who represent the silent majority), Delwar Hossain Sayeedi's opinions are those of a tiny radical minority.

A tiny radical minority that from discussions I have heard through sources unnamed is getting bigger by the day.....!!

Seeing as the FO have little grasp on the realities in Britain at the moment it would be nice to see the Home office use those new powers we as the voting public have given them and see him locked up for inciting racial hatred at the first opportunity, a couple of years behind bars followed by a flight home................

Two words.....FAT CHANCE!!

His influence will grow because the FO have given him a credience he formerly lacked. After all why bother being moderate when HMG only listen to the radicals like the MCB and ignore the moderate Muslim majority. The irony is that these consequences seem invisible to our lords and masters.

And there is no hint of the fact that they may be inviting him in just to observe and flush out other radicals, then?

Ooooh, no!
