Better late than never - Happy New Year
Well that’s that out of the way but I have concerns 2010 is going to be a troublesome year. Watching the news on New Years Day I was worried to see all the headlines dominated by stories of problems both national and international in which followers of Islam were major players. Top of the bill was a feature on the radicalisation of Muslims in British universities which almost led to a Christmas massacre involving an airliner being blown to pieces. Then the next item was about a Bosnian Muslim who went on a targeted shooting massacre in a shopping mall in Finland killing six people. Later in the day a breaking news story filled the screens on all the news channels when a Somali axe man with links to Al-Qaeda attempted to murder a cartoonist in Denmark, the cartoonists crime was to produce an image of The Prophet Mohamed of which Islamic extremists disapproved. News soon followed that UK based Muslim extremists Islam4uk are planning to provoke public outrage by marching through Wooton-Bassett to commemorate fallen Taliban fighters and condemn British troops as butchers and murderers.
Closer to home we had a violent mugging, a brutal gang race attack and unconfirmed reports about an incident which occurred in Hyde on Monday 28th December at 18.28 where two bearded Muslim men were waving a three foot long machete in the street and threatening extreme violence to local children - more on this to follow soon.
Anyway, there is seemingly one piece of good news - Global Warming is most definitely off the agenda. Do not worry though, the new buzz word is Climate Change, and remember; if Al Gore says it is true, and Gordon Brown agrees - it must be true!
