BBC Sort of Missing the Point?

So most imams are foreign? I understand you can say much the same (if you count Irish as foreign) about Catholic priests, although the stats are almost certainly not as extreme. However, the bit that got my goat is that only 6% speak English as a first language but that 8% are UK born.

That means that at least a quarter of UK born imams are from areas of society so withdrawn and regressive that even the blokes ('cause imam = male, at least for now) don't speak English as their first language. And we wonder why we have home-grown jihadis and suicide bombers?
