The Police Are Busy -- And Doing What They Should

Around the world we are hearing of local and regional police forces doing their job - keeping their people safe.

About a week ago in England a co-ordinated series of raids led to 9 arrests (2 released later) and possibly 5 deportations. It's a good start and I hope they keep it up. What got me though was this line:

"This is just a drama they have done to annoy the Muslims. They can't be Muslims and be terrorists."

Can't be Muslims and be terrorists?!? REALLY!?! What planet is that guy from?

On further reading at another page I come to this doozy of a line:

Neighbour Dimple Hirani, 21, said she believed some of the boys had become more radical after the 9/11 attacks in the United States, although she did not attach much significance to that. "I never thought anything of it. Lots of young Muslims these days are getting more religious, especially after 9/11. It's nothing to be suspicious about," she said.

Nothing to get suspicious about --- hmmmm. The fact that she thought nothing of it says a lot.

More recently in the largest city of our good neighbor to the north, Toronto, there was another series of raids leading to arrests of non-arab Muslims on grounds of terrorist activity. (H/T to a commenter "cornmeal" at Captain's Quarters.) The RCMP are actually quite a good police force when they are doing what they are supposed to be doing. According to a report given to a Toronto TV station 10 people were arrested.

Italy too is getting in on the action. I note that one of the intended targets of these people was a local Cathedral.

I have also stumbled acrossed this site which I suggest with some reservations and concerns. Homeland Security News.

You think this movement will get enough inertia to thwart the current train flowing of muslim tide.

Good thing they caught those guys in TO, 3 tons of Ammonium Nitrate can make an awfully big hole.

And don't forget the "Religion of peace" Killing and taking the Russian's hostage in Baghdad.
How long do you think it will be before the rest of the world sees what Islam is about?
If you are not Muslim you are a target.
