‘One in 10 Muslims are in 7/7 denial’

The Evening Standard puts a predictable spin on David Cameron’s blog about his stay with a Muslim family in Balsall Heath.

It’s not hard to identify a considerable degree of political cynicism here on the part of the Tory leader. Cameron must have been well aware that the right-wing press would highlight this particular aspect of his article, reinforcing his appeal to hardcore Tory voters. But at the same he tries to cosy up to Muslim communities by making some progressive-sounding criticisms of the misuse of the phrase “Islamist terrorists” and of the general anti-Muslim bias in the media.

Anyone tempted to fall for Cameron’s BS should read this article by Soumaya Ghannoushi.
