Politically correct insanity

A British police officer who is also a Muslim has been excused from guarding the Israeli Embassy in London and the excrement has hit the air-conditioning.
John O’Connor, a former Flying Squad commander told The Sun: "This is the beginning of the end for British policing. "If they can allow this, surely they’ll have to accept a Jewish officer not wanting to work at an Islamic national embassy? Will Catholic cops be let off working at Protestant churches? Where will it end? This decision is going to allow officers to work in a discriminating and racist way."
Never mind the religiously oriented buildings... can a Muslim police officer refuse to respond to a crime scene where alcohol or uncovered women are involved? Can a Jewish officer refuse to work the Sabbath? Can Jamaican officers now refuse to bust pot dealers because they are declared Rastafarians? To take this incident to its logical end... could a Muslim firefighter refuse to respond to a fire at this same embassy? Could a Muslim paramedic refuse to treat Jewish victims? Mindlessly worshipping at the sacred altar of multiculturalism has to stop, before we forever alter the nature of our civil society. 

UPDATE: Muslim Police Officer married by Bakri
A Muslim police officer who asked to be excused from guarding the Israeli embassy was married by the radical cleric Omar Bakri Mohammed, The Daily Telegraph has learned. PC Alexander Omar-Basha's father-in-law is related to Bakri, who performed an Islamic ceremony at the family home in north London. The cleric, who founded the now disbanded Al-Muhajiroun group of radical Muslims, is living in Lebanon after being barred from the UK.

"We need armoured vehicles and water cannon. They are the only things that can disperse crowds of hundreds of people who are trying to kill police and burn their vehicles."
