A strategy to create ever greater protections for Muslims in the United Kingdom by artificially defining them as a “race” has failed, and that has enraged the Muslim Council of Britain, reports the Gatestone Institute.
In response, that Islamist organization is now demanding that members of the Conservative Party be officially investigated for Islamophobia.
The situation was profiled in a report by Gatestone Institute senior fellow Soeren Kern.
The Islam-is-a-race scheme had been developed by a coalition called the All-Party Parliamentary Group on British Muslims, which includes a handful of parliamentarians.
They wanted to “institutionalize” the definition of “Islamophobia” in racial terms.
Of course, Islam is not a race, but a religion, one that includes people of many races.
The plan was opposed by many – for many reasons – the most obvious being that it would create a shield essentially protecting Islam from any criticism, seeing as such would be legally labeled “racist.”
