latest c4 news: over 700 injured, 39 confirmed dead, london is on lockdown, no cars buses or trains.
as far as i know the following stations were hit? aldgate/edgware rd/mooregate/liverpool st/kings x/russel sq and the bus in tavistock plc.
commuters have been told to stagger their journeys home, the areas above have now been declared 'crime scenes' and will therefor not be open 2moro which will have another knock-on effect.
i work near canary wharf which when you drive in it has cameras and a barrier (and to my knowledge has only ever been down once or twice since 911) i wonder about 2moro whether London will be on high alert?
my thought are with those who have sadly losed loved ones.

Hmmm, yes. I sometimes go on a site frerquented by British 'football fans', and the unanimous verdict seems to be to take to the streets and generally frighten and injure Muslims. I think this could turn into a serious problem. There are many elements within this country that would love to see boatloads of 'foreigners' departing our shores, never to return. I can't wait to read the Daily Mail tomorrow!

Yes--and the reason is because they refuse to assimilate into your society. They instead bring their Islamic ideology and their extremists views and refuse to accept the "western" way of life.

What Racist bull#.

I live in a town, which is about 70/30 split, with about 30% of the population being Muslim. Out of that lot? None of them have ever given me problems. About 10 families live on my road and yes they are Muslims, yes they hold Islamic beliefs yet they are a damn site more polite then any of the other people in this town.

Also not one of them has ever been placed in prison nor in the local paper for getting up to anything illegal. None of them sell drugs around my College and none of them go about shouting racist remarks or even anti-Westernization remarks.

A lot of them function perfectly within British Society.

Loss Of Family

I awoke today to this news, and as the shock slowly fades, I am overcome by tears and sorrow.

I need to reflect on this, and will most likely comment at length elsewhere.

As both an American and a fellow human being, the pain this news brings is profound and unfathomable.

There is only one thing I can say for now.

Brothers and sisters of Britain, my heart is with you, as it always has been, and always shall be.

I know today's events inspire revulsion and feelings of hatred, but it is incorrect to tar everyone with the same brush.

This is just a hunch so please don't take this too seriously. I strongly believe that these terrorists events that took place in London will cause another one of those preemptive strikes against another seemed to be group (nation) that caused this. What I mean is there will more than likely be some sort of military action involved. Not just on a small scale level, but on a much larger scale. Do we all remember how the invasion of IRAQ/Afganistan transpired? Well here it goes...

The U.S./Britain may announce that this attack was caused by a terrorist group centered in IRAN. An IRAN invasion could take place and it could happen within the coming days/weeks. Just wait and see. If I am wrong, well I am glad that I am. If an IRAN invasion did take place, that would be more than just horrible, it will be a horrific in more ways than one.

***For all those affected/-people living amongst London, my deepest condonlences and prayers are with you.***

I think you mean Ras, that we, the alliance of people will defeat the terrorism of Nazism, fascism and totalitarianism, as represented by the frontmen of the G8, who are the authors of these serial terrorist attacks.

At least I think you ought to

I'd like to second that. I have Muslim neighbours too and they are decent, peaceful, law abiding people unlike a lot of the non Muslim ones. Kicking the # out of innocent people in some cowardly misguided attempt at revenge does not make things right. Has it occured to these people that there were Muslims on those trains and buses too.

I am fearing something similar 2Super7E123. Like you, i hope this does not happen either, but someone will have to be blamed for this. And with emotions high, many people may feel an invasion of our "Attackers" is justified.

Unfortunately, with many other issues discussed, not just on ATS, but in everyday life, once someone has adopted a stance, no amount of reasoning or logic can shift them.

Hey thanks Purity, you've just reminded us of the ideology behind the jihad responsible for these attacks.

And all it would prove was that you are not only a stupid violent thug, but that you have been bamboozled into thinking that Muslims had anything to do these attacks

These attacks have been perpetrated by the intelligence and security agents working on behalf of those frontmen attending the G8 meeting

It was for the benefit of enabling laws already passes, ripping up the Magna Carta, Habeus Corpus and other limits on tyrannic behavour, to push the popularity of the ID card and as causus belli for further extended warfare

Please let's keep this story straight - the Muslims had nothing to do with it

I think some are jumping to conclusions on who exactly orchestrated the horror in London today.
As well, I'm sure that cooler heads will prevail with a minimum of backlash against presumed religious fanatics doing this.

But there will be some backlash...there always is.

Is that a sarcastic comment? If it is, yes, you are right, but how would it make things better for anyone if we simply adopted the same mindset and decided to hate anyone who come from a certain country, or who pray to a certain god?
Every person is an individual, and should be thought of and treated as an individual.

Sorry dh, but this is senseless babble in light of the fact an arabic group claimed responsibility for it (yeah I know they are not REAL arabs but westerners in disguise).

Earler this week Kokla accused me of being "conditioned" when I expressed concern over the potential for live8 as a bombing target. Maybe such conditioning actually goes the other way in the light of these events. Don't let your ideologiy screw your judgement

Believe your eyes ...

Taking Sides

I'm still dealing with the shock and pain this news brings me, but am compelled to point something out.

The publicly-stated goal of Al Qaeda and its allies is to ignite a world war between Islam and everyone else.

If you support all-out war against Islam, then you support the publicly-stated goal of Al Qaeda.

In times like these, I recommend choosing friends and enemies carefully.

It is never wise to make friends our enemies.

It must be true if they said it then.

I do, and I have yet to see, with my own eyes, a Muslim plant a bomb on a bus in London, or fly a plane into a building in New York.
On the other hand, the government says this is what happened, so...

There's almost always a Muslim on the bombed bus. They are pretty easy to spot. He's the one carrying the bomb and yelling "Allah Akbar" just before he kills himself and others around him.

I wouldn't go so far as to say that all Muslims are evil, but I'm not about to cut them any slack when they are responsible for most of these bombings.
