    why cant our government just say foreign students cant pay more towards degrees than home students>>>> less foreign students, because universities will simply pick home students as they should............
    What will isolating our young people from the experience of diversity within our uni student population achieve? It will make some of us even more xenophobic than we are already!

    If we didnt let any of them in- we wouldnt be in this sh*t

    We dont let paedophiles become teachers, dont let muslims become british citizens

    Now would that keep us safe or would it keep us safe??
    Surely, having a muslim community in your city makes you a less likely target to terrorists. These islamic terrorists certainly don't want to kill other muslims, no matter how deranged they are.

    Having Social Security cards, which are the equivalent of ID cards, did not prevent 9/11. You will never prevent people who are fanatical enough to give up their own lives from getting inside your country unless you don't allow anyone into your country.
    I wouldn't call Social Security cards ID cards in the usual sense. Driver's licenses are the more accurate representation of that.

    Because your universities would be bankrupt within a decade, unless you mean that you want to raise prices for locals to the same level as what the foreign students currently pay.

    Fanatical because of the religion they worship/are taught...... i might add
    Nonsense, Islam is a peaceful religion.

    No. Fanatical because of their interperation of the Koran. The vast majority of Muslims are nothing like these terrorists.

    Pathetic scare words like "xenophobic" cannot keep the Brits brainwashed forever, not when the reality of things is now right there on their doorstep.

    All Americans have the same SS cards, not all Americans have the same driver's licences (since each state issues its own ones).

    I disagree. They draw little distinction between the average Western Muslim and the average Western non-Muslim. Both aren't up to their level of piety.

    im not really bothered about what they think or how they feel. if they take glory from being dead then let them have it. they would still be dead and would therefore become a non-issue.
    Leaving aside trivia like guilt and innocence, this would serve no purpose except to make you feel better. It would encourage other lunatics in love with death to admire and imitate them. As a way to deal with them, one of the most effective ways of dealing with terrorist and guerilla organisations is to persuade members of the wrongness of their previous cause and turn them against them.

    Xenophobic is no more a 'scarey' words than homophobic - I'm sure you wouldn't consider the word homophobic keeps Brits brainwashed, would you?

    Yeah, but photo IDs are far more useful for identification purposes than SS cards.

    The response of some to claim that all Muslims should be stopped from coming into this country or carrying out their lives as normal in the wake of this attack is one of the most dangerous consequences of this attack. We need to all stand together, Islams principles are as much based on love as Christinaity or any other religion.

    If it was al quaeda, they are extermists, not true muslims. Most muslims will be as appalled by the attacks as everyone else.

    Whilst such attacks are a tradegy, we must not let them derail the G8 plans for poverty. After all, 30,000 kids die every day of poverty. And poverty is of course a major cause of terrorism.

    can i just say having ID cards will keep tabs on who should be here and who shouldnt!!! Very relevant at this point in time. You can all ***** on about the price, but it saves lives!!
    How do you know the perpetrators weren't legally here?

    I don't know. I doubt anybody would have been able to do it so quick - it seems so preplanned.
    this is very silly but:
    7/7/2005
    7+7+7+2+5 = 21
    21 = two ones = 11
    8.49am
    8+4+9 = 21
    21 = two ones = 11

    madrid bombings:11/3/2004
    1+1+3+2+4=21
    21 = two ones = 11

    11/9/2001 attacks wtc
    1+1+9 = 11
    2001, two one's = 11

    im not making fun of these horrible events but they are have a scary number connection of 11. 11 has been a very powerful number. think of the world war ending. new york city was the 11th state...blah blah, im just into supersticious theories.

    Unlike other terrorist groups, like IRA and Hamas, al-Qaeda doesn't have a positive cause. They do not want the liberation of some territory; they want to kill all non-believers. You can't negotiate with them.

    NK won't be attacked because of its Nuclear weapons. Syria is not being threatened to the extent Iran is and also isn't top of the G8 agenda tomorrow. Some Iraqis couldn't carry out such a coordinated attack. I mean I'm not saying it was 100% Iran, but it would be in their tradition.

    Look at the coups around the world. Look at the Iranian bombing of Jewish communities in Argentina. Things like this tend to be VERY complicated.

    They'd do that if they were stupid. They do not want to make it that obvious. Also, they want to show their capability of attacking in western countries (they have assassinated many opponents here before)

    To be honest, I think Al Qaeda doesn't really exist. A few groups of a couple of terrorists in each cell loosely linked. Not an organised movement. It is too convenient to blame them. And they won't miss a chance to take the praise for it.

    Yeah, let's murder the people who didn't do it!
    1) KGB sleeper cells were well knwon to be placed in america. the whole method through which they worked was their loose association. same with al-queda.

    2)iran isnt top of the agenda. african aid and global warming are.

    3)you mean 'commited by iranian citizens' = iranians govt authorised implicitly these days?

    sod africa, they can wait! Theres us putting on concerts for the world and going out of our way to help people and we still get bombed! I think we need to sort out global warming and terrorism first, and then africa!

    This country bends over backwards for everyone bu itself, we're like a bloody walkover!!
