LONDON Britons bracing for a terror attack like last month's Madrid train bombings are coming to terms with the idea the attackers may not be foreign militants but the sons of friendly Asian families living next door.

Police yesterday were questioning eight young British-born Pakistanis arrested a day earlier in raids that officials said had foiled a major bomb plot. Half a ton of ammonium nitrate, a fertilizer suitable for making bombs, was seized.

In a new twist last night, Omar Khyam's uncle showed reporters a cell phone on which his nephew had made three calls to a man his phonebook showed as "Geoff MI5" — apparently a reference to Britain's MI5 counterterrorist agency.
The uncle said "Geoff" had visited the house and advised the man to go to Pakistan because he was mixing in bad company.

"Britons bracing for a terror attack like last month's Madrid train bombings are coming to terms with the idea the attackers may not be foreign militants but the sons of friendly Asian families living next door."

Most Asians would be upset at having radical Muslims referred to as "Asians." Yet, how PC in western terms... I doubt western Asians desire any connection to radical Muslims. I doubt any western secular Arabs want to be associated for that matter.

I maintain, when the attacks on Europe happen, it'll become a major election fiasco, as it was in Spain. Shoulda coulda woulda.

If not "shoulda coulda woulda", it'll be appeasement, as Europe is being taken over by the veil.

IMHO, it's a war of fascist religion over secular democracy.

Just me...
