I don’t really agree in hating muslims, but I never really understood why people place it on par with racism. There’s little rational reason for hating an entire group of people based on colour and race, but religion is an ideology and culture, surely you have the right to criticise it and work against it? I don’t agree with this man’s actions but I think the verdict is pretty harsh. It was a stupid thing to do.
Cops would batter you black and blue for gobbing off etc.
One of the best days of my life was repeatedly smashing a door in to a Hepatitis B, drug using, punks head for spitting at me, then taking him into custody telling the custody Serg that we found him like that.
There are plenty of Muslims who hate the Taleban, Al Qaeda etc, just as much as everyone else, if not more, and indeed support the Coalition actions in Afghanistan.One shouldn’t tarnish an entire religion whose membership includes countless millions of decent, pro-Western, law-abiding folk, because of the actions of a small group of nutters. That’s an incredibly narrow-minded approach, a mindset not far removed from that of the terrorists themselves!
You can’t compare the two incidents. One was a political statement (which I personally find abhorrent in the extreme), the other, a vindictive, personal attack.
We generally try and take the piss and we need a resistance/military style disicipline to kee p us in check.
Remember in the good ole days, we just to hang\behead people for murder so people would think twice about losing ones temper.
I could right now go and mug someone, punch and kick them to the ground, nick their wallet and as my first major offence, would be virtually let off. Punishment should fit the crime, then times the punishment by 10.
