From a U.K perspective, the mood here amongst some people, often fuelled by the gutter press, seems negatively directed at certain cultural groups. So in that respect, yes, it could be seen to have similarities to the anti-Jewish position taken by the Nazis prior to WW2.
So how could we combat prejudice?I think there has to be more dialogue between the different cultures to foster understanding. We have a moral responsibility to accept our fair share of refugees who are fleeing from war zones and some people need to come to terms with that.
I also believe that minority groups must accept the culture of the country that they have chosen to enter, even if they are unable to fully subscribe to some aspects of it. Britain is for the most part secular nowadays but the fact remains that the Monarch, the constitutional Head of State, carries the title Defender of the Faith, and even non- believers try to live by values that are similar to those of Christianity.
As a Nation we believe in freedom of speech, justice, equality, women's rights, fairness for all,and the Rule of Law. Learn to live with it - or leave. Because, I believe that, if necessary, those values will be defended until the last man is left standing.
