How do you know when you’re angry? Me, it’s when I start SHOUTING at the radio.
This morning I heard that Tony Blair had unveiled new laws to fight terrorism: foreign fanatics who preach violence in Britain will be kicked out and some radical Islamic groups will be banned. Not before time, I say. Everyone in the Western world is wondering why those people have been allowed to spout such offensive stuff for so long. All in the name of so-called tolerance and multi-culturalism. Problem is, in the UK, that’s synonymous with ignorance and apathy.
Of course, the lawyers are up in arms. “… let’s kill all the lawyers!”, as one of Shakespeare’s characters advocates. I should be concerned about the fate of people who tell me to my face that they want to kill me.Yeah, right!
Anyway, what made me mad as hell was this: a moderate Muslim official was asked his opinion on the new measures. He approved of them, he said, because, as a British-born Muslim, he didn’t want anyone threatening his fellow citizens with suicide bombings. However, he added, he was really worried that it would mean preachers couldn’t support suicide bombers in Israel.
My throat is still sore from shouting. I hardly have the energy to slap him and all who think like him.
