Think about this; according to the Daily Telegraph there are 3500 active muslim terror suspects In Great Britain.

Actually, I think there are 15,000 "people of interest" on a watch list but only "people of interest" unless they break the law, that's it.

it too late to roll back the tide?

Well I guest it just late then and a nation of 50 million plus will be defeated by 3500 muslim terrorists suspects. Maybe we all need to convert now and save our skins.

There is no other solution, than to weed them out, and eliminate the threat that they pose, by whatever legal means available.

Something like that was said like that about the IRA campaign but today we have peace.

Libyan terrorists have killed the largest number of people. The PAN AM Lockerbie bombing in 1989 which killed 270 people. The police woman killed outside the Libyan Embassy WPC Yvonne Joyce Fletcher in 1984. Now the Manchester bombing with a further 22 deaths.

Suiide bomber bomber Salman Abedi  had returned from Libya the day before, where he had been for three weeks. Abedi is believed to have travelled to Syria and had 'proven' links with ISIS.

He stopped going to his local mosque because of the anti-ISS sermons. A further three men have been arrested in Manchester.

The recent UK terrorists and ISIS joiners in Europe have mostly come from comfortable middle-class backgrounds, with good educations, often thanks to the state. Just look at the homes targeted in the anti-terror raids. 

The British society provides free education to all children up to university level. Not all schools are equal though and have not seen the academic qualifications of the terrorists. The homes and houses are usually rented from the local governments or housing associations.

The terrorist who carried out the knife attack recently at the House of Commons came from a poor working class family with a single mother.

Sad figures but they died doing something they wanted to. Reading this week the government will set an age limit of the climbers following the death of 85-year-old Min Bahadur Sherchan.

The first muslims arrived in Britain in the 16th century. Most the Islamic terrorist and bombing acts have happened since 2000, 500 years later. In 1997 - MP Muhammad Sarwar becomes the first person to swear his Oath of Allegiance on the Koran in the House of Commons. His he going to follow the Koran to the letter and kill all the other MP's, no of course not. To say so would be just plain stupid.

Some young Muslims have been brain washed by internet sites, extreme preachers, time in prisons, radicalized to turn against their own birth country with hatred in their hearts. Most of the radicalizing also comes from their treatment in the British society. Name on lists, stop and search, checked at the airports, denied flights because some white person objected to their presence.

The treatment of the young Muslims and Muslims in general has been very negative from some sections of the society. This also happened with the Irish in the 1950's and the black people from the Caribbean. Both suffered from racial and religious hatred and bigotry.

The time has come for the leaders of the Muslim religion to have a public discussion about the Koran when it states killing of non believers.

A Slovakian bricklayer has never commited an act of terror in Britain, 

But probably an Irish one did

If the Islamic terrorists are killing people because it say in the Koran to kill non believers then why did they wait several hundreds of years before starting their campaign since modern terrorism dates from About 1983. Why are Islamic terrorists killing other Muslims. 75% of the Islamic terrorist killing are by a small group of people outside of Europe in Iraq, Syria, Nigeria, Afghanistan, Pakistan.

no I'm not out of touch in fact I read many British newspapers everyday, but never the gutter press where you kind of comments might be found. There has been a case involving young girls and a gang of Muslim men but there were not hundreds stated by you.

There are more than three million Muslims living in Britain most of them peacefully. The number of terrorists are low compared with the size of the community.

Prior to this we had decades of the IRA terrorists who detonated more bombs and killed many more people and mass property destruction. In fact, the last bomb in Manachester was 21 years ago but they gave a 90 minute warning so people were evacuated but still 200+ people were injured and property destruction £700 million.

A solution to the IRA bombings and terrorists were found and I believe the current reign of terrorism will also be defeated without the need for deconian measures imposed.

Certainly your type of comments hold no sincere solutions.

The question zichi, is how the bring that cycle to an end.

Must being with communication between leaders of the communities. Public town hall discussions attended by both sides and able to express their concerns and worries. Education and dialogue between people. Discussions in the schools. Public TV. Tolerance of culture differences.

History has shown time and time again that violence is never defeated by violence otherwise by now it would have surly happened since in the last century alone more than one hundred million died at the hands of violence.

The flames of the current violence were sown decades and even hundreds of years ago with every action comes the reaction.

The killings of hundreds of thousands of muslims in their own countries by America, Britain and other countries. The drone attacks on weddings are no less horrific than the Manchester bombing.

Acts of hate will also bring out the perpetual haters who also thirst for the blood of others in some kind of revenge killing or advocate the mass slaughter of further innocents. The righteous are just wolfs in sheep's clothing.

Those that hate, for whatever reason are all on the same side as the devil.

The suicide bomber detonated a bomb containing ball bearings, small steel balls, killing 22 including parents and their children who attended the concert and injuring another 59. The bomber travelled on the public tram system to reach the venue. Another witness said their were nuts and bolts all over the floor. Some of the injuries are too horrific to write about.

A 23 years man just been arrested in connection with the bombing.

It was a bad idea to call the election for a date in Ramadan.

I don't believe so since less than 5% of the population are muslims and even muslim sports people will continue during that period.

In your case I would suggest you ride a bike, or motorbike to work rather than taking the train.

@Strangland

That's why you call it out right then and there, and get bystanders to acknowledge it.

I would suggest that when someone accuses you of something, pull out your phone and ask them if they would like you to phone for the cops to come to the next station.

Like I said, I have translated documents for those who were accused, even in one case, of rape, but the charges were dropped before a court case.

I would not suggest to any man to run away, especially on a train track which could get you killed.

@itsonlyrocknroll 

An atrocity, a suicide nail bomber, detonated to maximise the panic, massacre, and carnage as families with their children were vacating Manchester Arena, from Ariana Grande concert.

This act is beyond barbarism, it is monstrous and unholy, wicked in it targeting the most innocent and venerable. The terrorist ultimate diabolical agenda is to turn communities against each other in vengeful hate and recrimination.

The only effect method of retaliation is to unite and identify the radical fundamentalists that are hiding within UK communities.   

Today my heart is with those who have suffered in Manchester. My birth city is nearby Liverpool.

But all acts of violence are barbarism whether its a lone suicide bomber at a pop concert, a knife attacker outside the House of Commons or the American and British dropping bombs on thousands of innocent civilians or a drone attack against a wedding with many young children present. The seeds of the current events were sown decades and even hundreds of years ago.

We should all unite to end the hatred and violence across the globe but not by further violence.

Why?

Because no will will remember where your hands were and no one most likely will come forward for your defense.

If you stay and are caught, the cops will also think you're guilty. And they'll follow it up with prosecution. And pretty much every time you'll be found guilty in the subsequent trial.

You are making a personal assumption and in my opinion a wrong one. I would appear to be more innocent if I don't run away. I have translated documents for people who were found not guilty or the charges were dropped well before any court case. Please don't just assume you assumption must be correct.

@Akula

Japan is unlikely to be at risk given its relatively sensible immigration policy compared to the idiocy of Angela Merkel,

You are incorrect. Japan is a far distance from the problems of the Middle East and North Africa and can't be reached overland, unlike the 3-4 million refugees who fled from Syria into Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and beyond. Many of those are real refugees and under international laws need help from the nations who can give it.

Others from North Africa are mostly economic immigrants seeking a better life and when they fill small boats to cross the Mediterranean and those are sinking with small children aboard, the humanity demands they are rescued and taken to a place of safety.

While there are many concerns nothing is simply a black and white problem which can be resolved with simple black and white answers.

Keeping your hands visible are meaningless on a crowded train and if you run and are caught the cops will think you are guilty so I would remain and face the questions and hopefully prove my innocence.

A serious escalation of the situation if terrorists now have access to bombs or bomb making materials. The intelligent forces missed this one.
