Oh really. I was in London when about 2 million people protested against Iraq war. If you're really from the UK then you may recall that during the visit of Bush to UK, all the tube stations, trains, bill boars were flooded with a particular poster depicting US president hugging your prime minsiter from behind, wrapping him up with an american flag, with the words 'make love and not war'. Remember? Now don't say that the protesters were all Muslims and Immmigrants. I have seen with my own eyes my friends and neighbours going to the protest rally. See the pictures of the protests at different websites and you'll learn that there were thousands and thousands of English protesters as well."

What planet are you living on Sarah? What the heck does anti Iraq war protest have to do with what people think of Islam or the UK populations view on Muslims?

You see this is the difference between you and I. Totally different mindsets. You seem to think that because many people protested against the war that they approve of Islam. Get your head seen to! This couldn't be further from the truth.

I am among those that think that the war was unjust and plain wrong. I didn't see why we had to blindly follow the US into Iraq at the expense of our troops and our tax money. there was no evidence to support the reasons for them going in.

That does NOT mean I support in ANY way your muslim brothers and sisters.
EVERYONE I know feels the same way about Islam, so you do yourself a dis-service to think otherwise. The stupidity or is it naivety of your remark highlights the ignorance, or is it arrogance, of the Islamic world.

You may think that you can put thoughts and words into the mouths of UK citizens and then amazingly, believe it yourself. But, your warped view of current sentiments is so far off course it's laughable.

We would speak out against you, but the muslim apologists have made it difficult, indeed illegal to some degree, to speak so freely. We wouldn't want your muslim brothers to take to the streets in a slash and burn protest anyway would we? Believe me though...The tide will turn.
