I listened to a debate on the BBC this morning in which it was being argued that a British police policy of stopping young Middle Eastern men acting in a suspicious manner was tantamont to state racism and that such a policy would only inflict more hurt on the already greatly suffering Muslim community.
The guardians of leftism believe that the Police should stop and search people entirely at random, thus a 75 year old White pensioner with a walking stick, or a 45 year old Asian with a briefcase has as much chance as being stopped as a 25 year old Middle Eastern man with a rucksack. Such idiocy should not be indulged and it looks like the Police have no intention of participating in such a charade, no matter what the BBC thinks.
As far as the "hurt" felt by the Muslim community is concerned, let me make this point. Perhaps it is the Muslim community itself which needs to take a long hard look at itself in the mirror and consider the massive hurt it has caused to the wider UK community which welcomed it to these shores. It is a sobering thought that whilst not all Muslims are terrorists in London, it seems that all terrorist are Muslims. It's high time that Muslims - including those "moderate Muslims" - came to terms with the fact that they have a primary duty of loyalty to this country, that they should be publicly expressing how utterly ashamed they are by those who murder in the name of Islam, and they should also be seeking to find ways to restore OUR confidence in them.
The inversion of reality to accomodate the politically correct victimhood embracing leftist agenda of the BBC needs corrected. We can't expect to see that happening on the MSM as it institutionally incapable of recognising that Islam is at war with us. At least here on the blogosphere we can deal with this problem by first stating it in unambiguous terms.
