if I could be arsed I would provide the direct link to this video, but time's a ticking, things to do.

this is a group of normal everyday Muslims at a meeting, not a meeting of an extremist preacher.

You live among Muslims - do you think they're all like this?

I wonder who would red stripe this without a comment.
this is not an extremist group of Muslims, it is normal sunni's at a normal meeting saying they are not extremists.
Although they fully support keeping women in their place and killing gays and adulterers.
I could only count one hand that wasn't raised when those questions were asked.
Perhaps they are the definition of orthodox.

I certainly have no problem or animosity with the people who I live amongst.
a woman down the road has a gay son and my mrs is great friends with him. He does have problems now and again but is accepted around here, he lives abroad most of the time though.
Our next door neighbour is a syrian woman. Her kids play with my boy, but she wont acknowledge me because I am a man although she does speak to the wife.
I have many syrian acquaintances that I see out at the beach and not one has attempted to cut my head off. Most just want to get back to syria when it is safe for them to do so.

that said my mrs cant stand turkish men as she says they treat women like pieces of meat. Many of her friends certainly are controlled by their husbands and can only go out with their permission. But then it would take a brave man to try and control some of her other friends.

Perhaps the problem does not lie so much with Muslims in their own country, but then they want to take their own country to someone elses.

for instance I do not demand that the people here fit in with my ways, I try and fit in with them. Being woken up in the middle of the night by some caterwauling can be annoying, but I dont demand it is stopped.

I dont demand that every government document is translated into english, I have to hire a translator if I need help. turkish is a bugger to learn.
My wifes family accept that I am not a Muslim now and we get on fine, which is more than can be said for my youngest sister in laws choice of husband to be, who IS a Muslim. They are dead set against them marrying.

In answer to your question on the video, yes I do think that that meeting does represent the majority view of Sunni Muslims in the UK.
