Now the shoe is on the other Muslim

June 20, 2017

I think there has been a mindset change amongst many British Muslims in the wake of terrorist attacks in the past few years. Many Muslims are now speaking out against these radicalist murderers and condemning these outrages as well as offering practical help to the police and se unity services. What annoyed me were the accusations that the police and the Government  somehow reacted differently to the mosque attack by procrastinating about calling it a terrorist attack. Now, without getting into semantics, was it a terrorist attack? The guy is clearly deranged, he was apparently pie eyed, had no connections to radical terrorist groups, no affiliations to extreme right wing groups etc etc. It is likely he will turnnout to be a nutcase, angered by the recent spate of Islamic radicalism attacks on non Muslims and out for some twisted divine retribution. Cue the intel on the London Bridge, Westminster, Lee Rigby attacks et al and the perpetrators were ALL found to have connections to radical terrorist groups in some form or another. So, do we have to accede to the cries of a minority of the Muslim community, and call a random act of extreme stupidity and wanton disregard for life an act of terrorism??

David, In response to your last Q, it would appear that's what many want​ -  "tar all with the same brush" comes to mind. There were two guys being interviewed today, one with enough huge gold chains round his neck to fund our Foreign Aid budget, bitterly complaining because TM didn't see them​ personally to apologise about​ the Grenfell Tower fire- after all, they did have "brothers" living in the area !! Yes, a truly tragic event, but too many are now using the tragedy to score points, and​ in getting back to the original point of this thread, ( the Welsh driver's attack ), the same people are trying to make political capital out of it too - shameless political profiteering. In a perverse way, I would like to see Corbyn, McDonnell & Abbott​ gain the power they crave, & for them to get their just desserts from the media and the populace when their "plans" are exposed for what they are, ie, economic suicide. John (JKW) PS - I liked Bob R's comment on the expertise of the Welsh driver !!!
