Reader comment on item: Documentary Exposes Radical Muslim Rhetoric

Where on earth do these idiots come from?

Prince Charles's comments (2005) on the 7/7 bombing in London:

"Some may think this cause is Islam. It is anything but. It is a perversion of traditional Islam. " (NO, CHARLEY-BOY, ISLAM IS ISLAM IS ISLAM. TRADITIONAL ISLAM IS THE PERVERSION.)

"As I understand it, Islam preaches humanity, tolerance and a sense of community, as do Christianity, Judaism and all the great faiths. It is for this reason that so many Muslims have been quick to condemn these and other atrocities." (THEN YOUR UNDERSTANDING IS SADLY FLAWED, CHARLEY-BOY! SINCE WHEN HAS ISLAM PREACHED HUMANITY, TOLERANCE AND A SENSE OF COMMUNITY? SINCE WHEN HAVE MUSLIMS BEEN QUICK TO CONDEMN ISLAMIC ATROCITIES?)

"They are right to say these acts have nothing to do with any true faith. Those who claim to have murdered in the name of Islam have no care for the lives they have so brutally destroyed." (OF COURSE MUSLIMS SAY THAT ANY ATROCITY COMMITTED IN THE NAME OF ISLAM HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM! THAT'S THEIR EXCUSE FOR EVERYTHING, CHARLEY-BOY!)

"Britain has the proudest tradition of accommodating new communities. Over recent centuries we have seen how, first Protestants, then Jews, then Muslims, Sikhs and Hindus, have enhanced not just the towns and cities where they have settled, but the whole of society." (MUSLIMS HAVE ENHANCED SOCIETY IN EVERY PLACE WHERE THEY HAVE SETTLED? REALLY!? WHAT UTTER NONSENSE! ON THE CONTRARY, CHARLEY-BOY. THEY CONTAMINATE EVERY PLACE THEY GO, TURNING RESIDENTIAL AREAS INTO SLUMS! THEY HAVE NOTHING TO OFFER ANYONE, OTHER THAN DESPONDENCE AND MISERY!)

"If we are to sustain this tradition, and the other great British virtues of good neighbourliness, tolerance and pragmatism, it is vital that everyone resists the temptation to condemn the Muslim community for the actions of such a tiny and evil minority. If we succumb to that temptation, the bombers will have achieved their aim." (CHARLEY-BOY, YOU ARE SAYING EXACTLY WHAT THE MUSLIMS WANT YOU TO SAY!)

Then we have John Reid, British Home Secretary, hounded by Muslims for daring to enter their enclave in Leytonstone, East London, where he went to urge Muslim parents to check their children more carefully and see what they are up to, to make sure they are not involved in extremism. How naive can one get! (LOOK AROUND YOU, JOHN! IT'S EVERYWHERE, BUT YOU DON'T SEEM TO BE ABLE TO SEE THE FOREST FOR THE TREES!)

Last, but by no means last, we have this brilliant brainstorm by Tony Blair, British prime minister. This is how Blair plans to combat Muslim extremism. He says he wants Muslims to tell the imams at their local mosque if they hear of any extremist activity in their community. (THAT'S A GREAT IDEA OF YOURS, TONY, BUT THERE'S JUST ONE MINOR SNAG. THE IMAMS ARE THE TERRORISTS.)

Prince Charles was born into his position, so we can expect empty-headed remarks from him. The election of Tony Blair, the Labour prime minister, however, beggars this question. What came first -- our gullibility in electing him, or his gullibility in accepting Islam as simply another faith without examining its raison d'etre, its intentions and its ambitions?

That such ignorant public figures are out there governing us is too scary to contemplate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I challenge Tony Blair to conduct a nationwide referendum on the Islamic problem in the UK, then act accordingly!
