You Do The Math
There are 1.6 million muslims living in the UK

From The Times of London

13% of British Muslims think that the four men who carried out the London Tube and bus bombings of July 7, 2005, should be regarded as “martyrs”.

7% agree that suicide attacks on civilians in the UK can be justified in some circumstances, rising to 16 per cent for a military target.

16% of British Muslims say that while the attacks may have been wrong, the cause was right.

2% would be proud if a family member decided to join al-Qaeda. Sixteen per cent would be “indifferent”.

The Beginnings
1914-18

"Mary Postgate"-- A Diversity of Creatures

It was not part of their blood,
It came to them very late
With long arrears to make good,
When the English began to hate.

They were not easily moved,
They were icy-willing to wait
Till every count should be proved,
Ere the English began to hate.

Their voices were even and low,
Their eyes were level and straight.
There was neither sign nor show,
When the English began to hate.

It was not preached to the crowd,
It was not taught by the State.
No man spoke it aloud,
When the English began to hate.

It was not suddenly bred,
It will not swiftly abate,
Through the chill years ahead,
When Time shall count from the date
That the English began to hate.

Sounds like the languid English need to learn which way is East (just look to France, who also will be looking East at that time), and get used to praying in that direction 5 times a day. Doesn't matter if you like it, or even if you want to, you'll do it to keep your head and shoulders connected. If you're having some problems with the form, just watch Spain, as they will have mastered the supine position by then.
The secular State religion is fine and dandy when basking in the afterglow of Christian Europe, but I doubt that you'll find many that would be martyrs for a secular State, to be slain by Islam. There's no real motivation, other than obediance for survival.
Here comes the Imam of Canterbury..
