"Disrespectful" is hardly the word.

Trevor Phillips, the former chairman of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, said it was disrespectful to assume that Muslim communities would change.

He told a meeting at the Policy Exchange think tank in Westminster on Monday that Muslims ‘see the world differently from the rest of us’.

According to The Times, he said: "Continuously pretending that a group is somehow eventually going to become like the rest of us is perhaps the deepest form of disrespect."

"Muslims are 'not like us' and we should just accept they will never integrate, says former racial equalities chief Trevor Phillips." By Mark Duell, Daily Mail, 1/27/16.
