Reader comment on item: Londonistan Follies
in response to reader comment: Dear Sidda

This has become an anti-British post: my fault, not yours. However, I would encourage you- whethere you are British or not- to read the facts provided by Daniel Pipes in his 'Londonistan follies' web-log. And think about them. Of course, I have made some quasi-racist generalizations about the British public, and I should not have done. However, forgive me for saying this, Islamic radicalism has been too tolerated in London. There is enough evidence- provided by this web-site- to support my claim. If people still feel that my comments are racist, then I apologize. Of course, Ken Livingstone and George Galloway are not 'the British people'. However, the British popular press often makes huge genralizations about foreigners, especially Germans. Think about it. But that does not excuse my own anti-British xenophobia and generalizations. Maybe, we should all forget my anti-British bias and focus on a basic question: have British authorities been too nice to Islamic radicals? This is a legitimate question, and it is not Anglophobic.
