Reader comment on item: Piggybacking on Terror
in response to reader comment: Where are your facts?

"Please provide some details of the physical manifestations of the 'terror' that you speak of. If you can. Which I doubt. Or name one Brit (there are presently over 60 million of us so it shouldn't be difficult) who can be identified as 'terror-stricken' by the demands of these impotent imams"

Please no need to take such umbrage. Surely I meant the Brit govt. which is so impotent. This is not a physical manifestation but one of 'dhimmitude'. Mr. Blair is dragging his feet on getting tougher on Islamofascists. It's one thing to send troops to Afghanistan and Iraq but how about cleaning up the mess in your own backyard. You have these "aggrieved, unemployed and frustrated muslim youth" who made trips to Pakistan and back, for terror training, as and when they wanted and succesfully executed their evil designs on 7/7 but the Brits were busy fighting terrorists thousands of miles away. You have these "peacful" demonstrations against Blair and Bush on your streets carrying banners that openly threaten your Govt., of Islam dominating the world and of a future holocaust. What else does your Govt. need more than this to take actions on these 'peaceful' marchers.

I agree Spain paved the way for Al-Qaeda to get emboldened, but my concern about this fight on terror is as much as yours and being Indian makes it more important. The west (especially the UK and US) has always looked the other way and ignored the Islamic terrorism that India faced for decades from across our border in the name of Kashmir. But the menace from Pakistan, it has been proved time and again, is not limited to India but has manifested itself across the globe, be it the 7/7, or the thwarted Brit plot, or even the Canadian one.
