Reader comment on item: [London Terrorism:] British "Covenant of Security" with Islamists Ends

Submitted by Rob James (United States), Jul 8, 2005 at 10:46

With British politicians scrambling to place blame on each other, and running to the rescue of the local Muslim community (no doubt aiding in the arrests of terrorists, I presume /sarcasm), I have to wonder whether or not our friends in the UK get the clue.

Maybe they require another slap in the face.....I got it! Israel should take Al-Qaida off it's own terror list and blame the uncategorized "Millitant acts of defense" on International Anglocism!!! Or better yet, Israel should negotiate a break-off Anglo-Islamic state for "Poor Muslim refugees" on the populated Londonistan southern border. Perhaps the current Mayor of London wouldn't mind being the first Grand Ayatollah?

However, even this would not be enough for the "International Community," and it would soon become apparent that the small nation of Londonistan could not maintain itself due to massive overpopulation. It would be necesssary for a "Right of Return" status for Muslims who emigrated from Middle to Northern England before the creation of Londonistan.

Soon, Muslims from all over the world- Pakistan, India, Palestine, Saudi Arabia- would trace their history back to this ancient Islamic Island, which existed before the farthest reaches of the Roman empire ever settled there!

Let's face it folks: Britain is no Spain, but it's no America either. Pop psychoanalysis from the British left will prevail over common sense in the end. Appeasement leading to a pseudo "Covenant of Security" has been British doctrine since the beginning of WWII. What makes us think that things are going to change now?
