I personally think they are trying to divide us, while as George Carlin said "they run off to the bank". How should we adress the government trying to do this?

I have noticed what they are trying to do, I doubt most people living in Britain have noticed though.

No, they have a tendency to do that themselves.

Nope I think Muslims are doing a dandy job doing that on their own.
On the whole, I agree with this.

I do not really like Cameron but what is wrong though with supporting Israel's right to exist. Is this not different from delibrately causing division?

I would say the media, rather than government, specifically the right wing media.
People saying that Muslims do that themselves...case in point.

The use of the word "terrorist" by the government and mainstream media answers your question.

Yes, the government made up facts relating to Muslims demanding prayer areas and maintaining legalised burkas and being over demanding in general compared to any other religion.

Not.

What was the last thing Christianity made us bend over backwards for? Banning Life of Brian?

I don't think you can generalise. I'm sure there are some people in the government, and certainly in some political parties, that think they should be divided. And there are different media publications that also have biases one way or the other. There are also all sorts of other organisations, both Muslim and non-Muslim that are encouraging division. But there are also organisations that are encouraging the opposite.

So I don't think there's any mass conspiracy either way.

I really don't see how this would benefit the government. Could you be a bit more explicit about what the supposed motives would be?

Regardless, there is a lot of evidence to the contrary. Just look at how Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller were banned from entering the UK recently, and Geert Wilders before that. There's also the alleged cover-up of the Asian grooming gangs news stories, and of course there is the obligatory "religion of peace" mantra that our senior politicians feel compelled to broadcast after every Islamic terror attack.
