1 Does the name Neville Chamberlain ring a bell?

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?

3 The islamooslamists will get their wish: fearful Westerners will be cowed by their violence. But in the process they will gain the silent but burning emnity of tens of millions of these previously neutral (and even friendly) Westerners who will resent them for it. The more these Westerners see their own governments and media bending over to appease those barbarians, the more that enmity will burn in their souls. And in the long run, this will only work against the islamooslamists, and in favor of the West. Like 9/11, this is going to be a real wake up call.

4 I'm not sure I really expect our authority figures to tell the Muslim World to "get over it," but it might be kind of refreshing. I guess there'd be an immediate wave of violence and the anti-war crowd would blame BushHitlerBurtonBlair for any property damage or loss of life. And one generally doesn't start a political career in order to put that sort of stamp on one's posterity. But the secondary effect might well be beneficial, if Islam begins to get the notion that we're a little bit crazy about our values.

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?

5 Speaking of "peace in our time"...

-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

6 Hondo,

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.

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

8 Babs, because the British authorities don't have the balls to confront the radical Islamists.

9 the police have been studying the pictures of the protests over the weekend and have set up a special unit to deal with prosecuting anyone they deem to have broke the law.
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.

10 your wrong jesusland, the british government are backing the police 100% in their enquiries. there will be arrest's believe me.

Posted by: ian uk at February 06, 2006 10:42 AM

11 ian, if I am wrong, I will be glad. I sincerely hope these people are prosecuted to the full extent of the law and deported, but I noticed that many of the worst offenders had masks on or had their faces covered. How is one to identify them?

Posted by: jesusland joe at February 06, 2006 10:57 AM

12 britain is a cctv state mate. thing is after shooting that innocent brazilian bloke in the head six times last summer our police/secret services are having to be a bit more carefull to identify the right targets.

14 I think it's fair to say i know a lot of people, as most of us do. I cant say I know anyone who doesn't feel strongly about the importance of, say, saving rain forests, in reducing harmful greenhouse gasses, that the war is "not in my name", etc. Sound beliefs for a greater good.
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.

15 Neville, (oops - sorry) Jack Straw has to appease the muslims. You have to be reasonable, he wants to get re-elected and his constituency has a massive muslim population. So, really, you cannot expect the poor man to do anything else, can you? Let's face it, would you give up his fantastic job, free housing, big car (and a driver, WHOPPING pension and all the cudos that goes with it: just to stand up for the indiginous population of Britain. He'd be stupid - wouldn't he??????
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!

16 I wonder if it is the case the same drug dealing son of straw which is a muslim convert, in which case there is no surprise that Al Ayatollah Ibn Straw has come to give his beloved offspring a hand.
