British Muslims condemn Isis


This video from Britain says about itself:

We didn’t stop the Iraq war, so was 15 February 2003 pointless?

15 February 2013

Four people, including novelist Ian McEwan, remember the biggest protest in British history, when two million people marched in London to stop Tony Blair taking Britain into an illegal war against Iraq. The marchers in London, and many millions more around the world who marched on 15 February, did not stop the war. So what was achieved by protests?

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Britain’s Muslim leaders condemn Isis

Saturday 12th July 2012

MUSLIM leaders in Britain have condemned the extremist group Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isis), expressing their “grave concern” at continued violence in its name.

Representatives from both the Sunni and Shia groups in Britain relayed their message that the militant group did not represent the majority of Muslims.

Shuja Shafi, of the Muslim Council of Great Britain, said: “Violence has no place in religion, violence has no religion.

“It is prohibited for people to present themselves for destruction.”

An open letter signed by more than 100 imams from across major theological backgrounds and cultural groups urged British Muslims not to travel to the war-torn regions.

The letter called on communities “to continue the generous and tireless effort to support all of those affected by the crisis in Syria and unfolding events in Iraq,” but to do so “from the UK in a safe and responsible way.”

Justin Welby warns of hysteria over threat of Muslim radicalisation. Archbishop of Canterbury says number of young people travelling to Syria is ‘extraordinarily small’: here.
