London Bomb Blasts

We have been shocked to learn about the London bomb blasts which so far have claimed lives of 38 innocent people. The loss of innocent human life is really sad. Bombing is not a new thing for London. May it be the Nazi’s during WWII or the IRA, the people of London have always shown great courage and strength.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of victims and the people of London.

Unfortunately British Govt has been very quick to point finger at “Muslim Jihadi’s” or “Muslim Extremists”. I think we should wait for inevitable proof that some crazy Al-Qaeda group did this. In any case, no religion teaches terrorism and killing innocent people.

It’s just not fair to use terms like Muslim Terrorists or Islamic Extremists. Terrorism has no religion and we never call Timothy McVay a Christian Terrorist.

    lefty, it’s sad that the suspects are from Pakistan but I find no rationale to accept the arrest of 175 Muslims as a reason for Muslim involvement. It’s just that they are encircling Muslims everywhere (the usual suspects). Even if Bush fell in the bathroom, they accuse Al-Qaeda; it’s just the attitude. As a matter of fact, Al-Qaeda is not a synonym for Muslim. Atleast, I don’t have that dictionary. You just have the impression of ‘one bad apple’ that makes you think that the whole lot is spoilt. That’s not the case.

    I would be happy if you could elaborate on your last remark. Peace.
