Following Islamists’ concerns, UK University is considering banning National Anthem from graduation ceremony

The King’s College University (KCU) in the UK has confirmed it is “in discussion” over a request by an outspoken Students’ Union officer, Mahamed Abdullahi, that the iconic National Anthem, God save the Queen, should be banned from the University’s graduation ceremonies.  Mr Abdullahi ranted on his facebook page: “I want to get rid of the national anthem at graduation because it’s outdated and not reflective of the ‘global’ values the college espouses.”
As we have repeatedly affirm, Islamists have no sense of decency or self-restraints.  They only stop when the system caves in on them. We mentioned in Vol 18 No 4 how some immigrant Islamists were asking that the emblematic White Cross should be removed from the Swiss national flag because it is a Christian symbol and no longer appropriate for "today's multicultural Switzerland." The development at KCU has led to a furious backlash in the country; and a petition berating the very idea has opened. Robert Spencer of JihadWatch comments: “That the university would even be considering this is a sign of a cultural confusion and capitulation of catastrophic proportions. Britain is finished.”
