A lack of British values

BBC NEWS | Education | British values classes considered

Harris Bokhari, from the Muslim Association of Britain, told the BBC's Five Live it was a "knee-jerk reaction" because teaching British values in schools would not have prevented the London bombings.
"What was the reason why these people actually committed these disgusting acts?
"And unfortunately it was our foreign policy, it was the issue of the illegal war, the illegal occupation of Iraq, the war in Afghanistan, the continuing abuses of the Palestinian people, the illegal occupation of Palestine by the Israeli state."

And quite how is blowing up commuters in London meant to stop the occupation of Palestine? Maybe a "British Value" that could be taught is that this sort of behaviour is simply wrong and inexcusable, or should we teach the modern British Value that if you terrorise enough the government will give in and greet the terrorist leaders as statesmen....

I take it he is a moderate?

What's so "illegal" about this war? It's a damn good war.

"should we teach the modern British Value that if you terrorise enough the government will give in and greet the terrorist leaders as statesmen...."
