Emails to the MCB on issues and concerns
I want to add my voice to the support of British
Muslims and their treatment by some narrow minded
ignorant people in Britain at this difficult time. I
belong to no religion but I fully understand Islam's
stance on violence and I fully understand MCB
position. I apologise to all Muslims who are being
targetted and would like to say that sometimes I am
ashamed to be British.
|Thankyou for firmly condeming the grotesque attacks on our great
nation. However I feel as a collective faith you should do more to
infiltrate terrorist groups within your community. I believe it is also
important to understand that Britons will be wary and perhaps paranoid
when a Muslim is acting suspiciously as simply these are the prime
suspects in the terror attacks. As an indigenous white Briton, I
struggle to understand how these attacks are in the name of Islam as
some extremists claim. It is so important for good community relations
that all Muslims stand firmly against such attacks as help police with
enquiries to root out those guilty of mass murder. Otherwise, I fear the
next attack could possibly be chemical, and reprecussions against your
community could be of an extreme nature.
Thus, please stick together as one nation Britons, and be
thankful of the largely tolerant people of our historic city. My God
bring these perpretartors ultimate justice, but next time we and the
Muslim community may not get off relatively lightly, in comparison with
|I speak for the vast, VAST majority when I say that I do not connect
these attacks in any way with Muslims or Islam. The people of Britain
are VERY proud of being a multi cultural society and thankful that these
islands are enriched with people from all over the world - the food's
much better for one thing.
Although you fear of reprisals from a minority of people you should also
count the vast majority who sympathise with your situation and want to
do our utmost to make sure you don't feel marginalised or isolated.
Don't be afraid. The Vast Majority is not afraid and if we do not fear
then the bombers have failed.
Best wishes to you all from 'The Vast Majority'.
I would just like to offer my sympathies and condolences towards the
London Bombing victims and families... and the victims of revenge
attacks that have blackened a positive unite of all Londoners against
a inhumane and evil act of pure hatred against all humans on this
planet. I strongly condemn these racial hate crimes and consider them
a crime against humanity. I think it's horrible that people target
participants of your religion solely because a group of radical
terrorists claim to hold some of the same believes as you do.
To let these crimes continue would be the worst thing we could
possibly ever do, and it is what the terrorists want. Instead of
uniting against these horrible people, we are bickering amongst our
Violence cannot stop violence, only peace can do that.
Hatred cannot stop hatred, only love can do that.

Best wishes to a positive, peaceful society,
I wish Gods peace on the leaders and peoples of Islam in Britain. May
God give you the wisdom and courage to face the challenges ahead of us all.
Having three sons in London, it brings close the danger we all feel from
those who would destroy the fabric of mutual trust. This Trust which
allows all God fearing faiths to live together as God intended.
Salam all at MCB.
I would just like to congtratulate all on your excellent work throughout the past week. In the light of the recent atrocities it must have been really difficult for all of you's and being under intense scrutiny from the media musn't have been easy. I make dua to Allah (s.w.t) to make your work easy and incurring as little problems as possible....
I heard that there were some people attacking Muslims as a result of the
As a non-Muslim, 25 year old white guy, I would like to codemn this and
point out that for
every one person who acts like this, there are millions of people who
hold them in little more
regard than the people who carried out the bombings.
Violent people always seem to take up all the airwaves. So as a nice
person speaking to a
nice person let me say that, I only have a handful of Muslim friends but
they are decent,
hardworking and nice people. Our voices should be heard above the idiots.

|Whilst personally having no need for a God in my own philosophy. I must
express my support for you at this time. A collegue and friend of mine
is a Muslim and it is easy to see the worry on his face, he is worried
about repriesals on a law abiding, productive section of the community
which makes up our country. Just to say that I respect your beliefs (and
having read the Qu'ran and Holy books of many other faiths) and I know
you're beliefs could not condone this atrocity.
Not all White european Britons blame you.
I am deeply distressed by attacks on mosques and individual Muslims in the wake of the London bombings.
It is totally unacceptable that the Muslim community should come under attack.
I welcome the condemnation from the Muslim Council of Britain and the Muslim Association condemning this terrorist taking of innocent lives.
I sincerely hope in the interests of consistency they will apply the same condemnation if there are any further terrorist attacks in Israel.
We Jews know only too well what it is like to be targeted, to have our synagogues attacked and our cemeteries damaged and daubed.
Which is why we can empathise with the Muslim community when it comes under attack and the majority are called to answer for the mindless actions of a tiny minority.
It would be nice to think we can work together in the future to stand against racist and anti religious attacks on either of our communities
I welcomed Lord Ahmed's unequivocal condemnation of the bombings on Radio Five Live on Sunday morning, especially his strong statements that there can be no excuse or justification for the slaughter of innocents.
Hopefully the culprits can be found and brought to justice, and those who are sullying the good name of Islam and all Muslims can be rooted out and isolated.
In the meantime I am sure the vast majority of our community condemn any attacks on the Muslim community and will stand with you in the fight to try to prevent a repeat of the horror of last Thursday

|Our thoughts and prayers are with the British
population and all those who suffer directly and
indirectly from the events of last week. Although I am
not Muslim, I am supportive of the Muslim faith and
know that terrorist perpatrators are not religious at
all, but quite the contrary.
You will be faced with anger from those who cannot
separate the faithful from the faithless. Do not be
discouraged. This, too, shall pass. With time and
knowledge will come an understanding that those who
commit these acts are not of a faith, are not of one
background or culture, are nothing more than angry,
psychotic criminals, with too much hatred and enough
money to make these events happen.
All Muslims should remain true to their faith and
understand that all of us who believe in God, no
matter what our background or religion, accept each
other for who we are. Every faith has experienced
persecution for uncommitted crimes at some point.
Faith and patience will overcome.
Best wishes and kindest regards,
|Robin Phillip |
I know that I am just a individual Londoner but I would like to send my
heartfelt wish that there is not even a single incident of
anti-Muslim activity recorded in London during this period while we try
to get over the murderous events of 7 July.
I am not a Muslim but people who are contribute enormously to life in
the UK. And long may that continue.
