"Up to this weekend, he has been making fun of GW, John and Tony for their stupid war in Iraq."

He has lots of company in this country, some of whom live in areas the terrorists would love to hit.

You know, when I saw him speak yesterday, I thought he looked absolutely ASHEN. Pale as a ghost. Maybe reality hitting him in the face?

British Muslims: About 1.5 million, almost 3% of the population.

That number seemed low to me so -- I confess -- I checked for myself.

Your numbers seem to be correct. I jump in with this post mainly to add the additional point that more than 600,000 of them are in London.

Where you have a massing of an immigrant population like this, you are not on the road to assimilation, IMO. You are on the road to national disintegration.

Glasgow police chief Willie Rae said a suspicious device was found on a man wrestled to the ground by officers at Glasgow airport and hospitalized in critical condition with severe burns.

Sounds like the “suspicious device” found on one of the perps was supposedly a suicide belt.

I found the numbers from a Wikipedia article. I think they’re from the 2001 census, so there are probably more Muslims there now.

This is kind of a strange way to deal with it.

1st Cop: “There’s no explosives in this vehicle.”

2nd Cop: “Really?”

1st Cop: “What shall we do?”

2nd Cop: “Well let’s just put some of our own in it.”

1st Cop: “Right-O chap! Then we’ll blow the bugger up!”

“Where you have a massing of an immigrant population like this, you are not on the road to assimilation, IMO. You are on the road to national disintegration.”

I agree completely with your opinion, which is backed by reality.

Daniel Pipes had written an excellent article basically saying what you just wrote.

Muslims have been here in the U.S. since the early 80’s, yet did not push for footbaths, prayer rooms, special preference, etc...until recently.

Muslims have stated quite clearly that their goals are to make the U.S., (indeed, the world), islamic. History has shown that they bide their time in order to sufficiently build up their numbers, and strength, in order to “make their move”.

Aren’t we seeing that the time is now?

They haven’t ‘retracted’ it, as far as I know — it’s just dropped out....

Can anyone out there confirm - or at least second-source this story??

It may just be bogus.....

Can you detect where the suspicious device is on the perps person in this pic?

It does not appear the policeman and the other guy is that concerned about a suicide vest in the pic.

Seems like lots of people keep hoping much of this story is bogus. When the Glasgow story broke, people (even here) were mostly dismissing it as some junker with an overheated engine. Turns out it was quite un-bogus after all. Then when the bomb belt was found, some tried to say that was just hysteria, but that, too, was most un-bogus. Give this one some time—so far the reporting has been very good, and I doubt this one is bogus. It’s possible that they’re not mentioning it for good reasons—just as the authorities over there have been quiet about other aspects of this case.

You can barely see the perp, so you can’t tell. Someone called it a “bomb belt” not a “vest” so maybe it was more compact that what we see in Gaza.

Believe me, Miz — I am one of the most vocal detractors of the “Nothing to see here - move along, folks” crowd... (I just might have possibly coined the use of that particular phrase in the context of terrorism-deniers, on the OU bombing live thread back in ‘05)

Something just feels ‘off’ about this one particular incident. (ie - “Police Blow Up Car At Hospital”)

The article I referred to:

http://www.danielpipes.org/article/441 Faces of American Islam (Muslim Immigration. This study also appeared as
“Muslim Immigrants in the United States”
Center for Immigration Studies Backgrounder
August 2002

An excerpt:
“A third reason for immigration is Islamist ambition. Although the numbers in this category are smaller than those for refugees or students (and, indeed, some Islamists also fit in those two capacities), Islamists have particular importance, for they harbor religious and political ambitions that are in a potential collision course with the majority population.

Islamists arrive in the United States despising the country and all it represents, intending to make converts, exploit the freedoms and rights granted them, and build a movement that will effect basic changes in the country’s way of life and its government. The superpower status of the United States makes it especially attractive to those who wish to change the world order; what better place to start? Islamists do not accept the United States as it is but want to change it into a majority Muslim country where the Koran replaces the Constitution. “Our plan is, we are going to conquer America,” is how a missionary put it already in the 1920s.1 His latter-day successors are no less ambitious. They have two alternate strategies, nonviolent (i.e., conversion of the Christian majority) and violent (i.e., jihad), to accomplish this.”

The two attacks clearly are linked, police and security officials said, noting that all three vehicles contained flammable materials — including gasoline and gas cylinders.

Mohammed is 2nd at the moment, but will be number one by the end of the year....not a good sign for Britain.

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/article1890354.ece

“In total, 5,991 baby boys were given some version of the name Mohammed, with 6,928 baby boys named Jack.

Thomas was third with 5,921 names, with Joshua and Oliver rounding out the top five.

According to The Times, if the growth of the name Mohammed continues - it rose by 12 per cent last year - the name will take the top spot by the end of this year.

He had a big smirk on his face. He lifted up what appeared to be a five-litre drum, which I think had petrol in it, and set himself on fire

The best thing to do with this terrorist is save his life now that he has third degree burns on 90% of his body. Let him go through the pain of that for a few months/years. No 72 fat, ugly, virgins and lots of excruciating pain, at his doing.

We should all give a poop in the general direction of the media for all the efforts put forth on behalf of the enemy, during these previous broadcasts
btw....thanks to the media for giving out as much information to the enemy as was possible. I hope the enemy doesn't think, but the belief the enemy can't think is what put (us all) in this soup. We might want to start thinking for ourselves, if this crap keeps up, cause if the nation isn't thinking, the enemy is.
btw....don't go asking hitlerybil the meaning of that word, we have enough problems, without asking ignoramuses.

TexKat, maybe you were looking at the wrong picture? The guy on the ground is likely the one they took into custody. The guy in this picture (the one who has “something” bulky around his waist), is the one they took to the hospital with severe burns—and the one on whose person they claim they found a “device.”
