| ||The Daily Express rounds on Nick Clegg (pictured) for his supporting the muezzin’s call to prayer in the UK. |
The DE leader comment today reads, ‘For him [Clegg] to defend the spread of the muezzin – the often amplified broadcast of the Muslim call to prayer – on grounds that church bells ring to summon the faithful is deeply troubling.
Church bells are a quintessentially British sound and have been for a thousand years and more. The muezzin is an alien one. If world citizen Nick Clegg does not understand that – and he appears not to – then he clearly knows almost nothing about the country he aspires to lead. And that is a perfectly legitimate cause for concern’.
And the Daily Star editorial today supports for the extension of the planned ban on the burqa in France and Belgium to the UK.
From the paper:
‘Euro leaders are absolutely right to ban the burka.
‘The Muslim veil is almost certain to be outlawed in France. And the Belgians are gearing up to rid their country of the full face veil.
‘Britain must now follow suit.
‘This has no place in modern Britain. True Islam doesn’t demand anyone wear one of these backwards veils. It’s time to ban the burka here too.’
Little wonder Richard Desmond’s (owner of the Daily Express and Daily Star) paper's are often criticized as being ‘recruiting rags for the far-right'.
