    tonight matthew, you are being an idiot, probably as is the case with any other night. The fact of the matter is that muslims are to blame, and possibly the UK should consider implemeting a full scale ban to combat the terrorists.
    You're right - that's the way to defeat terrorism - have the government ban an entire group due to the actions of a minority.

    It's the fact that we DON'T do things like that which make us a free country.

    In fact, i disagree entirely. The variety of nations which are known to contain terrorist cells is so great, that islam is the only common denomitor.
    But this terrorism did not originate in these countries, it was taken to them.

    If we did, surely we'd get bombed more? Because some would slip thru the net. In any case, I don't give a **** what religion you are. Go invent your own. As long as you are a decent human being (that means you don't blow people up) then you can go worship a mouldy hamburger for all i care.

    I was being sarcastic. Banning Islam would not be a good idea.

    Yes, but the reasons they became terrorists were not born in the UK.

    So muslim countries are more susceptible to being used as terrorist bases?

    Wouldn'y everyone want to find some sort of group to blame all their problems on? Thats exactly what Hitler did with the Jews, the Jews were (apparently) to blame.

    If a white person commits a crime then the press don't make a bigger deal over it as they would a coloured or muslim person. The press don't say 'White man convicted of serial murders' or 'Christian convicted of rape'. Everyone gets angry at these terrorist attacks but that doesn't mean you should start hating millions of people for one persons crime.

    i would say it is a good idea. We need some kind of scheme to bring up youths who will support their country and leader. Persecution of certain out of line groups, muslims, jews etc, may seem harsh, but in the long run will lead to peace. Without domestic strife, we can pursue gains abroad.

    What I'm saying is, the political situation in various parts of the Middle East is more susceptible to terrorism - and these countries are inhabited by Muslims.

    can't we just persecute all the crazy extremist ones who are known to partake in terrorist activities? i don't think we should persecute innocent people, we're not living in world war 2.

    I can argue! So are you trying to say that anyone who isn't native to this country is dangerous? Er, what?!

    Oh yeah, North Korea has zero immigration. I bet there is little terrorist activity, they claim to have no AIDS (and I think its near the truth) and people are afraid to commit crimes. Doesn't mean we would like to live there.

    A number of factors I'm sure. If I knew for sure, I wouldn't be sitting here. However, I refuse to simply blame the situation on the fact that "they're Muslims".
