    We hear on the news about the disaffected muslim youth, alienated by the government policy - hang on, most of these kids were born here and probably have never been to the countries concerned so it's just because these countries are muslim? Whats more important? Loyality to the country you choose to live in, or loyality to a brother in religion. If it's the former don't expect your fellow Britains to understand or sympathise - it's clear from the emerging 5th column in our mist that we'd do so at our peril.

    I agree with this actually, doesn't happen solely with muslims but it is more prevalent imo.
    If you care more about other countries then your own, you shouldn't expect us to give a **** about you or your feelings

    How come you have only targeted Muslims? Many Christians, Jews, Hindus and Atheist also get upset at those inhumane foreign policies of the US and UK

    Firstly, don't jump to conclusions. I know that a lot of people concerned have friends or relatives there, it's only natural for them to be concerned. And this is only one of a number of reasons.
    Secondly, just because you don't perceive these options to be equal in value doesn't mean everyone else does. For some people it's like asking "if you had to kill one of your parents, which one would it be?".
    I really suggest you do your research properly next time before sharing such a narrow minded view.
