ARE WE NEXT? - AT 6:29 P.M. ET: This, from Britain, is absolutely pathetic:
LABOUR slammed the brakes on its war against violent extremism yesterday - amid fears it had upset Muslim voters.
Millions spent preventing Asian kids becoming terrorists will now be used to tackle right-wing racists in WHITE areas.
Community cohesion minister Shahid Malik admitted he was softening his stance because Muslims felt stigmatised.
But a former Labour aide called the move a "dangerous dilution" of the Government's counter-terrorism strategy.
Tories branded it a shameless bid to win back Muslim voters who deserted Labour over Iraq and Afghanistan.
More than £45million a year has been spent on measures to prevent Al-Qaeda recruiting young Muslims in the UK.
COMMENT: The Tories are right. This is about votes and power, and shows why demographic change is so critical. With predictions that Europe and Britain will be 25% Muslim by 2050, we have a right to be concerned - it isn't racism - about the political impact of that change.
Multiculturalism, like the American Constitution, is not a suicide pact.
