Weren't Muslims responsible for putting bombs on tube trains in 2005?
I'm all for free speech and will defend the right of racists to spout their opinion so that we can attempt to defeat it through reasoned debate and argument. However, ideally political debate should be elevated from the gutter, the comment above has but intention to inflame and frankly incite hatred towards a whole community as a result of the appalling actions of mass murderers. Muslims also died as a result of those bombs.
Racist comments and the general Islamophobic climate we find ourselves in should be a wake up call initially to the Muslim community on how comments from some Tory leaning characters can be so closely aligned with the vile politics of the Fascist BNP. It's fairly ironic that as we celebrate the achievements of D day & Normandy the Fascists are making a political comeback in Europe. Oh, and btw when I say "we" that does include Muslims who also died fighting the Nazi evil as the following web site makes clear not that you would have noticed from the Murdoch coverage which concentrated more on Liz being snubbed by the French.
Muslims individually and collectively need to politically wake up & organise against the right wing political and Media establishment who under the guise of freedom of speech have allowed an atmosphere to develop when such vile comments are allowed to go unchallenged in much of the discourse up & down the country.
