And the sooner we can learn that, the sooner that Islam can learn that within Europe, the better.12 Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron practically emphasised the same in his important statement in Munich, February 2011, that British multiculturalism has failed because Britain has turned into a community of communities with very little shared between them. Multiculturalism – in practice toleration, even encouragement of the existence of
