Don't count on Tony Blair really meaning what he says

Tony Blair may have renounced multiculturalism earlier this week, but the problem is that that's about all he's really done so far. Robert Spencer talks about it now on Hot Air.

Frankly, I'm not waiting up, seeing how, as Dawn reports, British schools are now receiving guides to Islam containing all those religious items that Islamists use (Hat tip: Dhimmi Watch).
LONDON, Dec.9: A guide to Islam is being given to primary schools across Britain containing a headscarf, a prayer mat, a prayer cap, sacred Ihram clothing worn during the pilgrimage to Makkah, a poster of the Muslim prophets and a compass to locate the direction of Makkah.

According to Daily Express the teaching resource, provided by the Muslim Council of Britain, is intended to provide children aged seven and 11 with information about true Islamic beliefs.

The pack, described on Friday by one head teacher as a "three-foot by three-foot plastic box", also contains CDs, videos, children's books and pamphlets and model kits of a mosque and Islam's holiest site, the Ka'bah.

Sir Iqbal Sacranie, of the MCB, said: "We believe education is the key to creating a vibrant and understanding society.

"We want to ensure that every schoolchild has access to high quality Islamic resources in their schools." Colin Manning, head teacher of North Reddish Junior School in Stockport, which has only four Muslim pupils, said: "The future is in the hands of young people.

The better they understand each other, the more secure that future will be." Tahir Alam, education spokesman for the MCB, added: "We found that schools were using books that were not accurate about Muslim traditions and beliefs so we put this pack together.

"We now have over 800 schools using them."
As far as I know, Blair's government hasn't done anything about it, so how can we possibly count on him meaning what he says? Only if he curtails this black marketing in Britain's school system can we be really convinced.
