    Which people?

    All people.

    All people are violent by nature regardless of their religion.

    While Radical Islam is an issue that must be dealt with.

    The overall racism contained within this thread.

    And yes I say racism, because Muslims are more likely than not to be Arab or of Arab descent. Which means they're more likely to be a victim of prejudice by certain people in this thread. You probably wouldn't care if you met a white muslim because chances are you wouldn't think he was one.

    Your average Muslim has nothing to do with what this guy did, or what some fundamentalist asshole does anywhere else.

    At all times.

    I'm more likely to be killed by a fellow Canadian than a muslim terrorist.

    In England you are far more likely to be a victim of violence by a fellow Brit than by any Muslim.

    The vast majority of the time, the most violent people in my tourist town are drunk, white males between the ages of 20 and 30.

    The racism in this thread is just sickening.
    Actually, if I remember right, Arabs are only about 20% of the Muslims in the world. But I agree with the rest of your post.
    I blame religious fundamentalism, one of the worst evils mankind is susceptible to.

    Q&A: What is known about London attack.....



    Q: What happened?

    A: Two men with butcher knives, a machete and a meat cleaver hacked another to death near military barracks in south London's neighborhood of Woolwich. Two U.K. government officials told the AP the attack seemed to have been ideologically motivated by radical Islam, adding that the assessment was not based solely on video footage of one suspect making political statements against the British government. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak about the ongoing investigation.

    Q: Where is Woolwich?

    A: Woolwich is about 10 miles (16 kilometers) southeast of Trafalgar Square. The attack happened a few blocks from the Royal Artillery Barracks.

    Q: Was it terrorism?

    A: Britain's prime minister said there are "strong indications" the attack was an act of terrorism, and other officials have indicated it was inspired by radical Islam.

    Q: Who was the victim?

    A: The French president, who appeared at a press conference with the British prime minister, said the victim was a soldier, but British authorities have not yet confirmed his identity.

    Before police arrived at the scene, one of the suspects, hands bloodied, called on Britain to withdraw its troops from Afghanistan.

    "We swear by almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you," the man, speaking with a British accent declared as he spoke to a cellphone camera. "We must fight them as they fight us."

    "He said: 'I killed him because he killed Muslims and I am fed up with people killing Muslims in Afghanistan. They have nothing to do there,'" she told the newspaper.

    A: Footage showed a man in a dark jacket and knit cap walking toward a camera, clutching a meat cleaver and a knife. He urged the government to "bring our troops back." British troops are deployed in Afghanistan and recently supported the French-led intervention in Mali.....snip~

    Q&A: What is known about London attack

    I would say the Brits are calling it for what it is.....notice No hesitation. Unlike Team Obama. The Brits will not trip over terminology. They will call it like it is. Might Upset Team Obama that others wont play follow the Fake Leader. But it looks like they will have to get use to that fact. They have the statements made by the attackers. So there is no confusion.

    In the name of Jesus Christ?

    Abso****inglutely! Understanding your 'enemy' goes a long long way and is much more effective than killing back.

    The guy in the pic above quoted the Bible as part of his rant. That seems unlikely for a real Jihadist. That and his local accent, and the demand to get OUR troops out, suggests he's a bit conflicted.

    They don't hate you at all. They love you, and they admire your country.

    You hate people who don't hate you. Chew on that for a few minutes.
