Further to your article in The Times, I can only say that your
so quick to point out the double standards of our elected government and
others, is equally guilty of its own. What the Government did in 'our'
(Muslims') name? Well, what have Muslims done lately in the name of their
faith? Plenty. Let's start with the bombings in Africa, the ongoing
genocide in Algeria, September 11, the Bali bomb, the bombing of the
synagogue in North Africa where mostly Western tourists were maimed and/or
killed, the slaughtering of Hindus in Kashmir, the slaughtering of
Christians by Muslims in the Philippines, the slaughtering of Christians
worship by Muslims in Pakistan, East Timor, Nigeria et al...not to mention
the generally oppressive and extremely intolerant regimes in most Muslim
countries, have I forgotten anything?
I'm sure there's more. That's all
the name of Islam. You talk of ETA and the IRA not being labelled as
Christian terrorists but neither organisation ever owned up to their
atrocities by declaring they were in the name of the Pope and/or
did they? And, if you weren't English or Spanish, you really didn't have
worry about getting blown-up anywhere else in the World, unlike Muslim
terrorist groups which are in the hundreds (maybe thousands) and seemingly
everywhere. The IRA and ETA, that's 2, the Bader-Meinhoff gang - now
defunct - that's 3. How many more European terrorist organisations?
another 2? Please, get real and stop the hypocrisy and as so many others
have noted, if you don't like life in the West and it is not in keeping
your religious beliefs remember, the U.K is a secular/Christian country
you can always leave. As far as I know, Muslims didn't get a specially,
engraved, gilt-edged invitatation to come here. I trust this letter will
given the same prominence as your sympathisers but I doubt it.
