I am sure you are correct but I would be more convinced if more Muslims openly denounced these people and reported the ones they have suspicions about to the Police.I think the point is the Muslim religion is not the problem, this is a cult/sect of lunatics parading under a banner of Islam but that most Muslims would denounce as anything but holy or related to the beliefs they hold dear.
They were interviewing one such chap today on the radio, he had regular open dialogue with our security services and said that that was what set Britain apart from the recent events in Germany and France, that we do have a lot more of that kind of interaction than most of us will ever know about.I am sure you are correct but I would be more convinced if more Muslims openly denounced these people and reported the ones they have suspicions about to the Police.
As much as I don't care to subscribe to any religion, I do believe the world would be a lot darker place without it - you have to consider how much anger and retaliation is mitigated and diffused by a strong belief of being peaceful, understanding and forgiving - imagine if that did not exist? It would truly be a free for all
I suspect that you are correct about the interaction but would think most of it is instigated by our security services .I find it difficult to believe that someone who genuinely had regular open dialogue with the security services would come on the radio and admit to it or that the Security services would let him do it.They were interviewing one such chap today on the radio, he had regular open dialogue with our security services and said that that was what set Britain apart from the recent events in Germany and France, that we do have a lot more of that kind of interaction than most of us will ever know about.
What a caustic comment that one is, and unfortunately so many people hold the same opinion.Religion is the cancer what ever flavour you choose..
It is very interesting to note that the two murderers in France in the sickening church incident were shot dead immediately and not given a chance to surrender... I doubt that would have happened here with our softly softly approach]
I think that shoot ASAP has to be the new standard approach in incidents of this nature. The nun who escaped and raised the alarm probably gave a description of the attackers, the first responders must now assume that firearms and/or explosives are present in an incident of this nature, therefore shooting identified attackers before they can detonate a device or open fire is the only way to bring the incident to a close. We have to hope that when (NOT if) it next happens here in the UK there are suitably armed resources available within a realistic timeframe, and that we don't have another mistaken identity tragedy.
Indeed. I think that the present form of the major religions developed in mediaeval times as a joint conspiracy between religious and State leaders as means of scaring the peasantry into subservience, (Do as we say, of the fires of damnation await etc!!) while keeping the religious and State leaders in their positions of wealth and power.Religion, much like government is just a form of control.
