Bottom line, this ain't no religion thing. Yes these fuckers use Islam to hide behind, but they are just fanatical fuckwits.
Before we invaded Iraq/Libya/Afghanistan etc. how much trouble did we have with the Muslim community or ISIS/Al Qaeda?
More than the IRA/UVF or similar? Did we ban their associated religions and deport people following Catholic/Protestant faiths?
Before our first bombing expedition into the Middle East, did we not already have millions of Muslims in the UK? Any problems?
What I would say though, is that from the moment that first bomb dropped we should never have been inviting folk onto our shores.
If you're gonna fuck someone(even if you're wrong) do it right. If you don't, they'll come back and fuck you right back.
IMO, that's where we're at. Retaliation in the best way they know how, with limited resources.We dropped bombs, they'll carry them in.
Not trying to sound like a do-gooder, I want action too. I just don't know what that should be. If it's dragging out every radical known and deporting them, go for it. If we can lawfully ship out every immigrant who poses a threat, then go for it.
What we musn't do, is make this an anti Muslim thing, because there are so many good folk in our communities, doctors/surgeons treating folk last night, people offering free shelter, taxi drivers giving folk free lifts, all the while knowing that some will be looking at them with hate in their eyes.
Hope we find a solution, and soon. Things are starting to get serious and I can see retaliation coming and most likely against the wrong people
As to the cause of the Muslim war on the west; it is not a recent thing.
While events in Afghanistan and the like have given the extremists more fuel for their fire, the root cause is still the existence of Israel and the support given to that country by the West in general and the USA in particular.
All of that just helped inflame something that has been smouldering for centuries. There will be no easy solution.
