I think that an arrest would have been appropriate. I believe the cahrge could have been something less though. Something that didn't hold the
possability of life imprisonment maybe.
In the UK life imprisonment isn't for life. The average "life" sentence is actually 10 years. A prisoner sentenced to life can be out within 5 and
7 years. Upon sentence a third of the alloted time is knocked off.
If you'd seen the context in which the idiot under discussion made his comments, you'd probably see that 5 years inside would not only teach him a
worthwhile lesson, but more importantly set an example to others. On the day in question hundreds of militant Muslims took the streets waving placards
and calling for non-believers to be beheaded and killed, praising 9/11 and the London tube bombers, calling for Denmark to be bombed, and ironicially,
demanding free speech be banned as free speech allows people to insult Islam!
These people were on the street spouting hate and making death threats, which breaches the law. Not one arrest was made at the time. This caused a
public outcry, because as we all know, if a bunch of non-Muslims people had protested in the same manner calling for all Muslims to be exectued and
their countries destroyed, the Government's response would have been somewhat less timid. Infact, on the day in question the only threat of arrest
made was toward a white non-Muslim lorry driver who dared to stop his vehicle to argue with the Muslims and complain to the Police about the nature of
Someone asked would the same happen with Jews and Christians if they"fell out of favour"? I'm sure it would...if Jews and Christians took to the
streets in their hundreds to praise terrorists and scream for the public execution of all those who don't follow their beliefs...
Infact, if anything, the situation was allowed to occur because
our Government is so afraid of offending Muslims, because Muslims are so "in
favour". When the IRA were regularly bombing England, killing both adults and children indiscriminately, it would have been unthinkable for members
of the Irish community to take to London's streets on the anniversary of a large attack, cover Catholic churches in posters gloryfing the event, and
march around with placards calling for more terrorism. But here we are, at the height of a "war on terror", and Muslims do just that in praise of
Muslim terrorism on British streets, and it's completely tolerated by the authorities.
People now are starting to get seriously sick and tired of witnessing such Governmental double-standards in favour of militant Muslims, and the
sentence hanging over the individual in question probably (and quite rightly) reflects that.
