The hatred for Militant Islam is growing

Reader comment on item: [The American Muslim Council:] 'Mainstream' Muslims?

Submitted by Billy Hughes (United Kingdom), Jan 12, 2003 at 07:32

I consider myself to be the complete Mr. Average here in the UK: married, 2 kids, average income , average home, average car, do the average amount of holidays, etc etc.

Yet I seem to notice that I am not the only one who is so incensed by all the pc nonsense given to Muslims whose silience in all this terrorism is deafening.

I feel the world is heading for maybe one last all out world war with the west v Islam.

And for me, Mr Average, I feel like I actually want it to happen. I read more and more and see more and more acts of terror happening all around linked by one common word... Muslim!

Muslim "extremists", muslim "rebels", muslim "fanatics", muslim "fundamenalists", and so on. But yet in the same news articles we see the West -- which is so despised by these -- letting in so called asylum seekers/refugees. They come here, take all the benefits like free housing etc and then we pay them to plot from within as so recently seen here in the UK where 2 of the ricin terrorists were claiming asylum. [Let us not forget the "leaders" of "moderate" Muslim groups who spend more time crying "profiling" and "discrimination" than calling out for the militants to leave their midst!]

All the time, these bits of Muslim bad news chip away at me, Mr Average and make me feel so incensed that I fear that hate will build up inside...I feel that it is only a matter of time before we become terrorists against the terrorists...

Then when I stand back and look at what I am thinking in response to these daily events, I am in horror at the violent fantasies.

But if I am having these thoughts, and I am Mr Average, what is every one else feeling...???
