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

Submitted by Michael Rucks (United States), Jul 10, 2005 at 02:12

Thank you for a clear, concise and truthful article on the UK situation.

Why does it appear that Mr. Blair feels the need to be an Islamic spokesman following this recent horrendous attack?

Mr. Blair, as has Mr. Bush, made it a point of decrying this recent terrorism as the work of a small number of of followers who have turned away from the "true faith of Islam". He spoke up, didn't he. Why not allow the "leaders" of Islam to speak out against this London slaughter? Hmmm?

I have yet to hear from any . .. any moslem spokeman decrying this horrific act and pilloring those who have done it. Have you? When was the last time moslems have marched to protest the perversion of their faith by these terrorists? At every opportunity they appear to be ransacking Holy places in Israel or shaking their fists at America or decapitating innocent Europens on TV . . .where is the islamic outage? I see no ground swell of criticism of terrorsism on the part of the Islamic community in UK.

It appears to me that with thousands of trained islamist terrorists living in UK that Mr. Blair seems soft. . . timid. . . in his dealings . .. or his lack of . . . with the outrageous pronouncements of some of those twisted, hateful islamists who reside in the UK. I think it is much later than Mr. Blair and Mr. Bush think.
