In an interview with the Muslim News Labour leader Ed Miliband apologised for the Iraq war and reached out to Muslims:

Both Tony Blair and Gordon Brown wanted to build good relationship with the Muslim community. It is clearly the case that the war in Iraq strained the relationships we had with the members of the Muslim community. I said what I said about the war in Iraq. [‘I do believe we were wrong. Wrong to take Britain to war’]. I want to make a new start with the Muslim community. The Muslim community provides a huge vibrancy and richness to British life. It is very important that we acknowledge that and it is something that I am seeking to do that as a Leader of the Labour Party. I want to do and will do, in terms of my outreach conversations with the Muslim community. I had very interesting experiences when I was Minister for Voluntary Sector in talking to various groups that were involved in the Muslim community.


He also rebuked David Cameron for his speech in Munich and warned him to "tread carefully" when talking about Muslims.

He should have been clearer in his speech about condemning some of the forms of extremism that we see, say, from the English Defence League, whom I know he has no time for. You have to be so careful in your language so that it doesn’t look like you are typecasting members of one community in a particular way and that was why people felt unhappy about his speech.


Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

Has the leader of the former labour party done any 'outreach' with the truly marginalised - the native working classes? Has he no advisers or consultants that are actually clued up on the dismal mafia creed of islam?

And, has no one had a word with him about ACCEPT PLURALISM?
