It would be nice to believe that foreign national Muslims, legally residing in Western nations, could be loyal to their adopted homelands ... but the truth is far from that fiction.
In this day and age, believing in Lahlah-land can be fatal on the battlefield and in your local marketplace.
The UK is now aware that British Muslims are serving as insurgents in Afghanistan and fighting against British military interests there.
British Brig. Ed Butler is quoted in the Telegraph ..."There are British passport holders who live in the U.K. who are being found in places like Kandahar."I guess it would go something like this: "I say old sot, let's don our turbans, strap on one of those vest things there, and take a goodly stroll to the market! Say what chap?"
Earlier this year, it was revealed that RAF Nimrod spyplanes monitoring Taliban radio signals in Afghanistan had heard militants speaking with Yorkshire and Midlands accents. [...]
Butler, 46, said he had seen evidence that terror groups based in southern Afghanistan were plotting with Muslim extremists in Britain to carry out terror attacks in the UK. "There is a link between Kandahar and urban conurbations in the UK," said Brig. Butler. "This is something the military understands but the British public does not."
I know, I know, "not all Muslims are like that!" You're right, I admit it. And not all snakes are like Black Mambas, or other poisonous varieties either. But I'm still distrusting of everything that slithers and has no legs; more so when my family is threatened by them.
These are hard times for civilized people, believing the difficult to believe, turning the other cheek, and blind tolerance will get our loved ones killed ... if not soon, soon enough.
