I don't know the details of Straw's comments - I know Bush's and the US State Dept - and I know how some have twisted and deliberately mis-interpreted them.
This is getting a bit rediculous. Confrontation with islam - maybe - maybe not - whatever ...
But why so quicky turn inwardly on ourselves and friends?

And, I suppose one ought to have some respect for the religious convictions of others, even though it probably wouldn't be reciprocated. But... like... they're burning embassies... over a carfreakin'toon! I mean, look in the mirron once in awhile, Islam! Zip your fly. Rotate your nose, so the rain doesn't pour in. Pull your pants up. It's a carfreakin'toon!
We feel your (heh) pain...
Seriously, isn't this ping pong diplomacy in reverse?

-Guy calls for annihilation of Jews
-Oversees military buildup
-His country finished a war 20 years ago
-International community meets in Munich...
Lucky the Jews have a military this time

As do I. However, in Britain they have hate crime legislation, so it makes such statements by Straw a little more odious than if, say, Condi had said the same thing.

You have hate crime legislation in Britian? How come NO ONE was arrested for inciting murder during the demonstrations on Friday???

one of the protesters has has made a speech of apology today after he attended the protest dressed as a suicide bomber....he didnt seem very genuine to me in his apology but there was a cleric standing over his shoulder as he said it.
jack straw by the way was very embarresed a few years ago after speaking out against drugs.....only for the british press to expose his son is a pot head.

But whilst we all feel an inner conflict about these and other issues, not once have I, or to my knowledge anyone I know, attended a protest march about any of them. Cowardice? Perhaps. Maybe it would take just a few more reports replete with statistics to spur us into full blown action. We DO know something needs to be done and we DO hope that things will change. But for now at least, we'll sit back and see what happens next. My point is simply this. London prides itself on being multi-cultural, each corner of the world is represented here and this has many benifits. The many Muslim communities here and all over Britain are more prominent than any other minority, and those few extremists flaunting their anger at the recent protests are a greater minority still..Just as those anonymous faces at the 'save fossil fuel' marches seem a minority to me. They are only the tip of the ice-berg, and our government knows it.

All he really has to do is go away on a freebe holiday somewhere where there is sun, sea and sand (and I'm not talking about iraq - Allah Forbid)somwhere nice in the West Indies, or the such. We will soon forget he chickened out. We always do!
