Sensitivities

Makes a change to see comments like these at Have Your Say. And to hear the US use some counter spin on Guantanamo and really hit back.

The comments were deemed 'insensitive'.

The family involved in last weeks raids in East London say 'no other innocent family should be put through the same nightmare'. With the lawyer chipping in that they 'have endured the most terrible ordeal you could imagine'.

Really? Who's being insensitive. Try saying that to the faces of those killed last July.

And the media have been correctly highlighted as a continuing part of the problem:-

"250 police officers DID NOT raid the address, only a small percentage did. The majority were on standby in the event of a necessary evactuation and impliment road closures which would have been man power intensive! These officers were never used. It is ludicrous and sensationalist journalism to suggest you could get 250 officers into one house. Let's have some measured accurate journalism. It is the press who are stirring this up by continually suggesting this heavy handed approach"

By the way you should check out this excellent blog

for a reminder of the kind of people who supported those February demos - attended by the brother of one of the 'innocent' men involved in the raids... who stands to make some £500k in compensation. The full facts supporting their 'innocence' aren't even out yet.

we all know that Nobody is innocent until proven guilty. modern (i.e. enlightened) systems rely on the reverse notion.

Err well said simac, I think... I like your blog description

"There is no concept, scheme or direction to this blog. There is also likely no real point."

The Muslim Council of Britain even tried suggesting they should be told 24 hours in advance of any raids on mosques or Muslim homes

Good lord. The audacity of the MCB... Those comments are all spot on, I think Neo hit's the nail on the head with

"if muslim communities weren't so incredibly insular then intelligence would flow more easily and this kind of thing wouldn't happen again."

24 hours advance notice. lol. yeah thats a good one. Insular is as multi cultural does...multi cultis must be so proud.

The MCB wants 24 hours notice before any such raids? What incredible audacity.

Pardon my cynicism, but what makes them think they'd be trusted to hold the information in confidence?

Would someone please reiterate again and slowly so the ***muslim community can understand - part of their community started a terror war and now they are being dragged into it. If they wish to go around looking like Jehadists then they are going to be targeted. If life has become so intolerable in the UK simply go back to whence you came and enjoy all the calm and simplicity of a muslim society. What I hear you cry and no benefits tut tut the very idea. Also did I hear wrongly or did these poor innocent put upon pillars of society have £38,000 stashed away.
