Isn't there something really bizarrely sad and wrong about that statement?

is now really the time and place to do that?

My thoughts and prayers for those in London

I will never understand this level of hate and how people can murder the innocent

No problem - I'm probably just being too defensive.

Seeing all this stuff happening must bring back memories for you, particularly with you being a New Yorker. I really feel for you guys.

Sadly not, there are groups that genuinely want to kill out of religious zealotry and they revel when the great satan or it's little satans suffer attacks.

This article was written in April
Quote:
LISBON (Reuters) - Several Islamic militant groups are preparing attacks on London, making such a strike unavoidable, a radical Muslim cleric said in an interview with a Portuguese magazine.

"It's inevitable. Because several (attacks) are being prepared by several groups," Sheikh Omar Bakri Muhammad told Lisbon's Publica magazine from London, where he is based.

One "very well organised" group in London calling itself al Qaeda Europe "has a great appeal for young Muslims", he said. "I know that they are ready to launch a big operation."

London police said they were not prepared to discuss the claims, but the country's most senior police officer, Sir John Stevens, has previously said that an attack on the capital was inevitable.

The firebrand cleric, who has outraged moderate Muslims and non-Muslims alike with his uncompromising views, gave no further details.

Asked if a British Muslim was allowed to carry out a "terrorist attempt" in a foreign country, Muhammad said "That is another story."

He added: "We don't make a distinction between civilians and non-civilians, innocents and non-innocents. Only between Muslims and unbelievers. And the life of an unbeliever has no value. It has no sanctity."
link

This is a vicious ideology, it is not about subservence to God or peaceful worship, it is about murder and opression. I do not think that it is representative of Islam as a whole and I hope that the actions of these types do not attract violence against innocent Muslims over it. These monsters for want of a better word are uncompromising, if you do not follow their ideology then you are an unbeliever, simple as that, even if you are a moderate Muslim in their view you are not a true Muslim.

I wonder if these claims are made as a result of these statements? An invented group taking credit for another operation. It is moot until the facts are established.

Especially after something like this

WildHoney, I am glad your family are accounted for too
If "middle eastern politics" means intentionally targeting and murdering civilians, they should take their "politics" to the deepest recesses of hell.

Speedracer; they cant do that; these blokes want to get into heaven, only way they figure that they can do that is by murdering a whole lot of people for their own "greater good", I hope that their wish for judgement is expedited after this.

fuck

My husband and a friend are in London today. They arrived yesterday and are scheduled to leave for Prague today.

I can't get through to his cousin in Brixton where they're staying. All circuits are down. I'm counting on Steve's morning stiffness. His back is shot and he's slow in the morning. That might have kept him off the trains and postponed sightseeing. I doubt they'll make their flight this afternoon.
