Is this all becoming hysterical?

So the stabbing in a Birmingham Mosque turns out to be a domestic dispute. Apparently those inside were arguing and a Somalian man pulled a big knife and it all kicked off. A nasty event for those on the receiving end and we can be thankful no-one died.

Why though as the incident was unfolding were local councillors , MPs etc. (and no I don't have references but did hear so on the news) so ready to tell us this is a multi-faith community, that all were welcome to pray and worship, that everyone regardless of personal beliefs live in peace and harmony, that patrols were being stepped up etc. What did that have to do with anything?

The next time some old Asian dear has say her purse nicked will we hear these same nuggets again (that is nuggets as in information, but then again).

I take it the statement was meant to deflect any finger pointing at one group of people. The thing is it was about one group - muslims. No other group involved. When will politicians blinkers be taken off and when will they realise there is a 5th column in this country!!

Because they assumed it was some Right-wing lunatic going postal. Plus they're shit scared because they've realised that multiculturalism is a monster **** up and will eventually come back and bite society on its arse Bosnia-stylee.

I know many people from different cultures/races etc.. had a problem with very little of them. In fact, I embrace multiculturalism. It broadens us all.

I do, however, agree with you on your point. It comes down to scale. And it all kicks off with 'us and them' mentality. It's just 'us' no matter where you come from but that seems not to happen in practice.

From the Telegraph Three men and police officer stabbed at mosque - Telegraph "Officers are conducting patrols in the area in a bid to reassure local people"

It was one bloke and he has been detained, are the Police then thinking that perhaps there are more knife wielding maniacs in the area that the local populace need protecting against? Does this mean the next time there is a single assault by one lone person in the area I live I can expect lots of Police patrols to reassure me?

No. It's knee-jerk bullshit coz da bruvvers are involved. Nothing more.

Me too, and even they're sick to the back teeth. Nigerian feller I work with: 'I came to Britain to escape from Nigeria. It's seems to have followed me.'

I do, however, agree with you on your point. It comes down to scale. And it all kicks off with 'us and them' mentality. It's just 'us' no matter where you come from but that seems not to happen in practice.
As long as we have sufficient quantities of knuckle-dragging territorial gibbon in our DNA it's Situation Normal. No disrespect to knuckle-dragging territorials.

As Buckfelize points out, the politicians are desperately trying to keep the lid on a potential race war in the UK, especially after the Woolwich murder.

"It's not a hate crime."

If I reached the stage where I was pulling out a large knife with the intention of inserting it into another human being there is a high probability that I hate the person I am trying to turn into a human knife rack. Or can a crime of hate only exist when someone is of a different colour/religion.

Yes. All other crimes are 'I Actually Quite Like You But Am Going To Turn You Over Anyway Crimes'.

Print/report first, investigate later

When did all the real Journalists die out
Since the advent of Twitter. If you wait to investigate these days it's already old news by the time you print it

But where is the link between this crime and a race war? Why not just deal with the problem as it is? The next time some kid shoplifts some sweets from the corner shop will the great and the good rush forward to tell us "This is a multi-faith area", "We all live in peace and Harmony", "No-one will come between us" etc? Will we see extra Police patrols to reassure the community?

Have you not signed up to your local militia yet? They came through here the other day with tin whistles and bag-pipes.
