Britain’s Muslims praised by British Chancellor

Gordon Brown makes some favourable comments about British Muslims. Robert Spencer is appalled by this abject capitulation to Islam. “Please, Mr Chancellor, show me where I can find in the Qur’an and Sunnah the idea of equality for non-Muslims.”

Mind you, Spencer is on record as saying that “Islam is not a monolith”, and that he is prepared to “encourage any Muslim individual or group who is willing to work publicly for the reform of the Islamic doctrines, theological tenets and laws that Islamic jihadists use to justify violence” (see here) – so, according to some people’s reasoning, he can’t be characterised as an Islamophobe.
