    The intelligence [sic] services would find it a whole lot easier to justify their pay cheque if they did.

    I really hate the lack of any common sense with regards to the illogical and reactionary way certain things are dealt with. If I am eating a bacon Sarnie, its a safe bet that i am not a Muslim terrorist, as went a conversation I had awhile back while eating pork and being searched by a PC PC.

    HA! I can beat that story; I went with 30 of our (supposedly top 5% intelegent) boys to Spain. One of them, well away from the gate, said "I'll bet I could get a gun though here". Overheard by either plaincloths or a member of the general public. They took him to pieces, falling short only of the "Bend over..." search as he was under 16.

    Oh how we laughed; then gave him several days of purgatory once in spain for wasting everybodies time.

    sadly it's not that easy. trust me, i live in the home of islam and the rules are blatantly broken all the time, else i'd have a clear run on the freeway 5 times a day, when they are supposed to be praying, as it clearly tells me they 'have to' do in the December 4th 09 issue of the Arab News.

    True, but sometimes it's best to make an example of idiots.

    Can I beg the question?

    "Why are bombs and airports linked to only Muslim groups?"

    Does nobody remember the IRA? or ETA? there are also other groups of terrorists around the world who are not Muslims.

    Why are people of the Muslim faith being persecuted for the deeds of a minority of brainwashed idiots?

    And before anyone comes back at me I am C of E and have no affiliation to any other religion but would ask the same question of any other religion if they were being persecuted for the same reasons.

    I do believe also there is no room for terrorists in the world but would like to see religion being used less to persecute another human being with.

    It takes all kinds to make the Human race, and no one should be persecuted for their religious beliefs in my world of thinking.
