    Three Loughborough teenagers accused of plotting terror attacks using pipe bombs today appeared at the Old Bailey. The youths, who are believed to be right-wing extremists, had already partly assembled the explosives when they were arrested in February this year. One of them was allegedly found with a stash of components for pipe bombs, firework powder, a stab vest, a gas mash, three .22 air rifles, a crossbow and The Mujahideen Poisons Handbook. It is claimed he also had 'a notebook containing information about the planning of attacks and the construction of explosive devices'.

    How funny you linked the muslims to this even though they are not related. Why don't you say "Non-White Loughborough teenagers in court on terrorism charges" or " Non-TSRian Loughborough teenagers in court on terrorism charges"?

    You're really not doing yourself any favours by highlighting that the act of terrorism was NOT carried out by a Muslim. Basically what you're highlighting is that acts of terrorism planned/carried out by non-Muslims are isolated.

    Anyway it doesn't matter, most people aren't accusing Islam specifically as being the cause of terrorism but religion in general. Islam is the most extremist religion in the West so it happens to have the most terrorists. I'm sure those right wing extremist were Christian/religious in some way.

    No, it's Islam specifically.


    Mujahideen poison handbook...Mashallah brothers, good to see you guys writing books instead of burning them. Perhaps a tamer subject next time.

    It is Islam specifically because the vast majority of religious extremists in this country are Muslim. It's not because Islam in itself is a worse religion than any of the others (although I'm sure some people do believe that).

    There are quite a lot of BNP types in Loughborough. You're either a student or a member of the BNP it seems :lol: Always confused me given the huge numbers of foreign students at the university.

    That's about all I have to say on the matter.

    Why would I label them ''non-White''? They were believed to be right-wing, hardly going to be Black or Asian are they?

    I decided to highlight it because religion always seems to be relevant when Muslims are involved (in whatever crime from fraud to murder). I should have mentioned the word Christian rather than non-Muslim though
