Four thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire: Okay. I’ve read a bit more about all this Woolwich business.I think... ?
Okay. I’ve read a bit more about all this Woolwich business.
I think we can all agree that it’s a shocking thing that’s happened. I’m shaken. A crime like that is utterly unjustifiable, and my condolences to those affected.
However, I notice that the fact that the attackers were Islamic is being…
But it was done in the name of islam, this deserves emphasis. If people did a crime in the name of Atheism then it would equally deserve mention.
That is a fair point, yes; though the fact that they were extremists — and therefore not typical — should also be emphasised.
Obviously not all Muslims are going to behead someone in the middle of the street — it depends on the person, not the religion. But the impression some of these articles are giving suggests otherwise.
i hate how un-careful they are about these kind of things. obviously if it is a terrorist attack in the name of islam that that is an important aspect of it, but unless it’s absolutely confirmed then they shouldn’t mention it, because racists and bigots just jump on the band wagon
I had the same thoughts. Sadly the news I watched didn’t actually said very much about what happened, just the “basic” facts: Islamic people, yelling something about how great is Allah, cut off the head of a policeman.
I just felt extremely disgusted by the image of the policeman but also I felt extremely uncomfortable about the fact that they mentioned they were Islamic, feeding racism.
