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

Submitted by john graham (United Kingdom), Jul 8, 2005 at 13:53

Given that this country has had a substantial community of various origins for centuries I have yet to see the "British Hindus", the "British Jews" "the British Chinese" etc etc etc etc , yet I now see the "British Muslims" multiply on news feed appealing for no retribution and unity and calm etc.

My government produced a series of literature promoting ( quite rightly) rights and responsibilities of all the UK citizens, these clearly defined the benefits of being British, the Muslim statements about "not being engaged in acts of terrorism" whilst indulging in some sort of "covenant" with the rest of Britain are clearly a lie. This is in fact going to do nothing more than convince the "unbelievers" (sic) that actually the Muslim community ( how on earth it should ever view itself as a "seperate" entity is beyond me) is something of a fifth column within the UK, my Hindu and Jewish friends despair of the muslims, given the acceptance that they have had and the benefits of the British way of life> They are agast that one culture, one creed and one religion could attempt to destroy it for all.

The answer is clear- the true moderate muslims MUST today make their stand against the forces within them that are spreading like a cancer and stop seeing themselves as seperate or excluded, come forward lets hear your voice and see your strength, STAND and speak out against the horror, or you will be the first that it will consume, and all that you have built and given to this country will disappear in a war of retribution- I, for one stand ready to assist you, will you be willing to accept the hand of assistance or will you continue to see yourselves as something more special than the rest of humanity?
