I was specifically referring to policing/control of their own populace by Islamic nations rather than their foreign affairs policies. That sort of public disorder would be stamped on by most western nations... well apart from Greece that is Not BS Tur. The UK has specific legislation to tackle racial & religious hatred, specifically the Racial and Religious Hatred Act 2006 which has been used to prosecute extremist preachers & demonstrators. Good for you. My father-in-law is a Muslim so it's 'in the family' so to speak. Let me make it clear I don't personally care what religion anyone follows. I respect their right to do so just as I expect them to respect my choices. If someone does promote intolerance / hatred I believe their individual rights to religious expression should be curtailed to protect the moderate majority. I agree with UK's legal system which can apply to anyone of any (or no) faith. The one area where I do believe we've got it wrong is schooling. I think faith schools should be banned. .
