I can barely believe this story is true: PRINCE Charles issued an extraordinary rallying cry today calling on Muslims living in the UK to show more respect for British values.
The heir to the throne railed against the radicalisation of young British men by Islamist extremists as he launched an impassioned defence of Britain’s “Christian” heritage.
Telling British muslims that they should show more respect for “the values we hold dear,” the Prince revealed that he was terrified by the influence of radical preachers who spread their teachings on the internet.
In an unprecedented outburst, he said: “The radicalisation of people in Britain is a great worry, and the extent to which this is happening is alarming, particularly in a country like ours where we hold values dear.
“You would think the people who have come here, or are born here, and go to school here, would abide by those values and outlooks.”
He added that it was “frightening” that young British Muslims were being radicalised by “crazy stuff on the internet”.
The outspoken comments are a further sign that the Prince is not prepared to keep quiet on political causes close to his heart, despite assuming more and more responsibility from the Queen.
They came as he started a six-day tour of the Middle East in his mother’s place, during which he has been urged to speak out against the barbaric practises of some Gulf states.
It is understood that the Prince will challenge new Saudi king Salman bin Abdulaziz al Saud over the terrible punishment handed down to blogger Raif Badawi when the pair meet face to face this week.
Interestingly, and bravely, he also seems to be calling on people living in other countries to show more respect for British values as well.
