    We're so far apart you may as well be on the moon. I seriously must wonder aloud if people like yourself are suited to living in the west at all.
    I agree Howard. Why do they live here? The west have kindly opened the door to them. They think it's more innocent to kill thousands of people by flying planes into building. It was just a cartoon. It was in bad taste but get over it or get the hell out of Europe and stay out...

    the fact is though that most the 'younger generation' of muslims arent like this at all.if theyr are it may be because of influence by older people.alot of people i no were offended at the cartoons ,not by the fact that they had been published but that they were being published over and over again. but alot of us understood by making these protests and mixing them with violence arent we just increasing the sales of these papers and increasing the media publicity.
    Not really the point.

    Besides, interestingly, these photographs are of young men and not old men. Actually, from what I understand the Muslim youth born in Britain are a far more radical bunch than their parents ever were.

    Indeed, presumably because first generation immigrants know why they came here and know why they'd rather not live under Sharia again.

    Agreed. No country can limp along ignoring the dangers these people present to. They are cancer and need cutting out from the fabric of society. (And if anybody from the BBC objects to that statement tough **** because I'm not subject to the stupid one-way street laws that your political masters have imposed upon the citizens of Britain)

    I'm sure there are many older muslims in the UK that are torn to shreds watching their sons and daughters faith being perverted by radical clerics from the old country. I pity the parents actually.

    there are..many parents just want their children to grow up have a good job etc and live alongside other cultures and religions. however SOME older people feel that when they are gone they will have no1 to carry on their teachings and feel that islam might deviate from what they THINK it is. so they not brainwash but persuade youngsters that theyr way of thinking is right and it is merely a updated or easier version of islam and what islam is really about when really it isnt.maybe these pictures are a sort of wake up call to muslims to realise that our religion is being percieved in the wrong light and to maybe work towards sorting this out..the violence just makes it worse.

    So evidently you believe in division and separation than creating a global community. Well, face reality, the world is smaller than it has ever been with international media and spheres of influence now covering the entire world. Your not going to undo hundreds of years of advancement that has resulted in this.

    "They are cancer and need cutting out from the fabric of society". okay, that isnt inflammatory nor irresponsoble :confused:

    It's my personal opinion of these particular people but most certainly not muslims per se). Fortunately for me I am in America where we are still allowed to voice personal opinion; something that I understand you may find difficult to comprehend in Britain.

    Simply that you cannot cut these people out of society. Thir voices will always be heard wherever they are. You cannot shield yourself from these types of people. Hence ignoring these people is better than confronting them fuelling them even more.

    hence, i feel your comment only worsens the situation.

    If they do not hold a British passport they should be removed to whence they came.

    If they do, they should be arrested, put on trial for inciting racial hatred, and if found guilty locked up. What's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander.

    Yes exactly, but people like Abu Hamza are beginning to be deported. However, a good judicial sysytem such as the one in the UK makes it very hard todeport people on subjective issues.
