"It’s open season on Islam — Muslims are the new Jews."the MP Shaid Malik was quoted as saying that

The Jews were innocents targeted by the State as part of a concerted attempt to destroy a race. To compare what happened to the Jews during World War 2 to the conditions of the Muslims in the UK today is an insult to both Jews and Muslims.
