Lib Dem MP protects terrorist supporter

Lynne Featherstone's blog has some reflections on Muslim extremism. It's fairly predictable Lib Dem guff - Muslims have suffered the most blah blah IslamExpo is a great idea blah blah our foreign policy blah blah illegal war blah blah radicalised Muslims blah blah - but one passage stands out:
The only concern I would personally voice through my own experience is that I have encountered one Muslim man in a leadership position, who when speaking to me or publicly condemns suicide bombings but who amongst certain other groupings espouses tacit approval. That is not acceptable and I think is about individuals power bases.
You're damn right it's not acceptable, so why are you respecting his anonymity, Featherstone? Who is he, and what are these ‘certain other groupings’ that are happy to hear his terror-supporting views? Name names - the public has a right to know.

If you want to know the name of the "Muslim man in a leadership position" who supports suicide bombers, email Lynne Featherstone - blog AT lynnefeatherstone.org

Um. Er. Hmm.

One of my mates is a Conservative MP. He is a fun-loving guy, a family man. A moderate, One Nation Conservative who believes in fairness for all.

In public anyway.

In private, he is child-molester; a supremacist who regards all non-whites as lesser species; a supporter of slavery and execution for adulterers and homosexuals.

This isn't true. I don't have a friend or know anyone who believes any of the above. A person who behaved like this would disgust me and any reasonably civilised person.

Lynne Featherstone, I assume, is a reasonably civilised person.

If this fictitious friend of mine were in a position of power, I would out him. In fact, he would not be a friend of mine in the first place.

Such a person should not be allowed to get away with espousing one set of values in public while advocating a different set of beliefs in private.

Featherstone's colleague Mark Oaten probably knows something about this sort of thing. Is it endemic in the Lib Dems, one wonders?

Exactly.

Way to go, DfH!

Discovered your blog only today - it appears to be an excellent and interesting one.
