How very politically correct, but inept for TV Police to issue statement today that they are
"..be engaging with key community representatives to allay concerns and fears ..with a particular focus on supporting our Muslim communities".


Seems to me they should focus on protecting/ guarding non Muslim communities, as they are the ones at risk from these terrorists.

By all means, closely monitor communities known as breeding grounds for such atrocities,
but don't treat them as the victims all the time. High Wycombe area comes to mind, amongst others.

We saw some very Christian acts on Westminster Bridge yesterday with both the terrorist & his non believer victims receiving the same care. We all know what a Christian act means, but the Muslim equivalent only has negative connotations for me.

Every one is a risk from terrorism, whether religious or not, but the risk is minuscule compared to others we face day to day. 🙄 When something like this happens, there is always a backlash and victims of those offences deserve support as much as anyone else.

Worth bearing in mind how Christ taught the parable of a Samaritan helping an injured Jew at a time when relations between those two Abrahamic traditions were just as poisonous as the present relations between Christians and Muslims, and the point He was making was that it is our common humanity that unites us.

What is also regrettable is all the people explaining we mustn't let them win and how it is business as usual and asking how we can beat terror ... broadcast 24/7.

Perhaps the security forces may have more teeth when we are our of the EU. Lets hope so. They know who the majority of people are that are likely to commit these incidents. Would I be bothered about there "human rights" if they rounded them up? Personally. No. That will upset a lot of shouty liberals. But I reckon the majority of the population would breathe a sigh of relief.

The guy drove a car on the pavement with the intention to kill. I doubt he was concerned what religion his victims were. Religion, I say it's years on years of bad foreign policy that bred this hatred at home and abroad.

I believe it is about what is practical, and this isn't a practical idea.

Its not practical to sit around like sheep waiting for these beasts in human form to come and cut our throats either.

People aren't sitting around waiting, that's why far more people in the U.K. are killed by diesel engine pollution than a terrorist attack.

Thankfully many people recognise this and act accordingly, rather than respond to right-wing hysteria.

His assumed intention was to spread fear and terror in the name of his own particular warped brand of religion... (said quietly... we don't want to make assumptions here about this being to do with the Religion of Peace)

If he wiped out fellow Muslims while committing his act they would understand... 'InShaAllah' n all that...

More people are killed by eating red meat than by terrorist attacks, and it's not right wing hysteria that gets us killed it's liberal complacency that does that. And if you're really all that worried about diesel? Don't use the bus, or a train, or get groceries delivered by truck, or use a taxi, or buy anything imported on a ship. Don't support windfarms that use banks of diesel powered generators as back up for when the wind doesn't blow or indeed any of the thousands of uses of diesel fuel, like home heating, and get rid of solid fuel kitchen ranges that liber's adore cos they're pollution machines as well.

The problem with you is you pick up on one single headline but are too lazy to look at the broader picture, like most liberals it too easy to hide behind a soundbite.

If you have a wasp nest in the shed and some of them sting you? Do you really try and identify the ones that will sting you next? Really?

What a strange and bizarre point of view, "more people are killed by diesel fumes that by terrorist attack"
unsure.gif
There are many, many things that kill more people than a terrorist attack.
The clue is in the word............"terror" that sets it apart!

The problem here is terrified right-wingers who over react and decide things without thinking through their position.
