It sounds an awful lot like blackmail to me

Muhammad Abdul Bari, the secretary-general of the Muslim Council of Britain has had the following to say to the Sunday Telegraph about Muslim terrorism:

"There are a few bad apples in the Muslim community who are doing terrible acts and we want to root them out," Dr Bari told The Sunday Telegraph.

"But some police officers and sections of the media are demonising Muslims, treating them as if they're all terrorists — and that encourages other people to do the same.

"If that demonisation continues, then Britain will have to deal with two million Muslim terrorists — 700,000 of them in London," he said. "If you attack a whole community, it becomes despondent and aggressive."

His comments sound an awful lot like blackmail to me.
