Why the racist complaints against Muslims in England?

Obviously some people here couldn't hack the truth in this question, but I am going to ask it again: England is having a lot of problems with Muslim immigrants.Many people have expressed feelings of feeling invaded and resentment--fears that the Muslims get special priority. I do not get what the problem is when England invaded other countries and enforced english rules, english clothes,the english language and the english religion.Why exactly are the English complaining when they are only getting what they gave to others?What gives the English solely the right to invade and interfer in other countries?What makes them any more special when it eventually happens to them? Note- To those English racists who keeping deleting this, you are in denial.England invaded and oppressed many countries and gained at their loss.Now the Muslims are coming and some want different rules just for them.How is any different?

invasion of a country is NEVER right, whether it is us (the english) doing it to other countries like we did in the past, or someone else taking over england. racism, or religionism, or whatever people want to call it is equally wrong, no matter who is doing it to whom.

Err. Obviously the problem is that what you're talking about was hundreds if not thousands of years ago and none of the 'english complainers' alive today have ever invaded a country. You make no sense. Sounds like you are the racist one. Just because England may have invaded places in the past doesn't mean that people have the right to come and get some sort of revenge like what you're insinuating. We are supposed to learn from the past and NOT repeat it. Muslims have appropriate countries if they want to live that way of life. The UK is not a Muslim country. I (British) wouldn't go to the Middle East and start saying their way of life should change to accomodate me, and if I did they would not even listen to me, I would probably get killed the way some of you are acting. Muslims can be Muslims and live here as long as they do not force it upon Britain and become a burden which is what they're doing. They are causing the segregation. They do not want to be part of Britain. They want to keep all of their own culture and scrounge off of the benefits that living in Britain gives them without giving anything up to join in. Most importantly they're trying to take the country back instead of it being progressive.

Islam is not a race. Get your facts straight before you try and preach because racism is a completely different issue. It is a religion just like christianity. I know white people who have converted to islam. I'm not religious and i think all these arguments over religion are stupid. Why can't we all just get along? The issue i think isn't with muslims but with the immigration system. I personally think that too many people (it doesn't matter what race or country of origin) are being let into the country who want to claim benefits and just bum around in general and live a life of riley on behalf of the taxpayer. Also at the moment people are loosing their jobs, unemployment is at an all time high so English people aren't exactly jumping up for joy when foreign workers are coming in taking English jobs. I think though that Britain has no right to tell muslims to get stuffed and to force english religion (most English people don't seem to be that religious anyways). I do believe though that people who enter the country must be able to speak English though because Britain's main language is ENGLISH, i mean i wouldn't dream of e.g. putting in for a Japanese visa without being able to speak the language! Also what makes you think normal English people were for many of the invasions and interference in other countries issues? Don't blame the normal, innocent English public for what our stupid Government has done. If i had the power to kick Gordon Brown up his lardy **** i definetly would. again why can't we all just get along?

Who cares about past 'invasions'? the UK was invaded by vikings, Romans,Normans-maybe they should whinge for special handouts and privileges too in Italy,scandinavia or France.. Or maybe America should give all the entire land mass back to the natives. Or perhaps spain should throw open its doors to all the mexicans, Latinos etc because of their past 'mideeds' in South America.. Portugal and Italy also had colonies,too and at least the Brits did build roads,schools and hospitals, they didn't just 'take' like some. The Italians actually had a big purge on immigrants a short while ago because one raped and killed a woman--why no outcry over that? After all, the good old Romans once had an empire that spread over most of the known world, and it was taken with the sword.

Islam is a belief not a race. Get your facts straight. If I believe in Pixies move to another country and ask for special things at the tax payers expense to appease my Pixies will it be racist for the indigenous population to tell me to get stuffed? If I say all buddhists are bastards, am I racist?
