Downing Street supports the september 11 attacks lol

i'm sure its probably been quoted out of context by mistake but it just made funny reading

Minister criticises Muslim letter
Foreign Office minister Kim Howells has criticised Muslim leaders for condemning British foreign policy.
An open letter, signed by three Muslim MPs, three peers and 38 community groups, said the stance on the Middle East has put civilians at risk.

They went on to say that UK policy has given "ammunition to extremists".

But Mr Howells denied there was a "rational connection" and said "no government" formulates policy based on a perceived risk from terrorists.

Downing Street, meanwhile, said Tony Blair "stands ready" to meet Muslim representatives when he returns to the UK.


 There are many issues which incite people to loath government policies but not to strap explosives to themselves

Mr Howells told BBC News 24 the letter's comments were "facile".

He said: "I have no doubt that there are many issues which incite people to loath government policies but not to strap explosives to themselves and go out and murder innocent people.

"There is no way of rationalising that.

"I think it is very, very dangerous when people who call themselves community leaders make some assumption that somehow that there's a rational connection between these two things."

The letter urges the prime minister to redouble his efforts to tackle terror and extremism, and change foreign policy to show the UK values the lives of civilians.

MP Sadiq Khan, who signed the letter, said British foreign policy was seen by many as unfair and unjust.

"Whether we like it or not such a sense of injustice plays into the hands of extremists," he said.

"As moderates we will do all we can to fight extremism. We hope the government will join us in this, not just by changing the rules on hand luggage, but by showing itself as an advocate for justice in the world."

The letter was also signed by MPs Shahid Malik (Dewsbury) and Mohammed Sarwar (Glasgow Central), and peers Lord Patel of Blackburn, Lord Ahmed of Rotherham and Baroness Uddin.

Other signatories include the Muslim Council of Britain, the Muslim Association of Britain, British Muslim Forum and the lobby group, the Muslim Parliament of Great Britain.

'Desire for democracy'

A Downing Street spokesman responded to the letter by saying: "We should always remember that the terrorism affecting the West today has blighted Muslim countries for several decades.


"It certainly pre-dated our decision to support democracy in Afghanistan and Iraq and of course the September 11 attacks.

"Our foreign policy is focused on supporting the people of those countries in their desire to live in a democracy just as we enjoy in the UK."

He also stressed that "nobody could have worked harder" than Tony Blair to achieve a cessation of hostilities in the Middle East.

Liberal Democrats deputy leader Vince Cable agreed there were links with foreign policy but voiced concerns the letter's message might "give some comfort to the kind of people who say: 'Well, change your foreign policy or we'll blow you up'".

iraq would just get annexed by iran


That would be a great solution.  If Iran and the majority of Iraqi's are pleased with it, then why shouldn't they do it?

The minister is correct. Lots of people disagree with the policies of their government, but only Muslims seek to mass murder their fellow citizens in protest. That letter from the Muslim groups was bullshit and an attempt to rationalize terrorism.

disagreeing with policies is when the govt increases taxes on your ass

when ur govt has blood on its hands...theres no more need for discussion and talk

"One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. "Which road do I take?" she asked. "Where do you want to go?" was his response. "I don't know," Alice answered. "Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."

If Muslims keep on commiting terrorism against their so called countrymen here in the West, then the West will eventually stop accepting Muslims as immigrants. Then you guys are really going to be fucked.

Tech, you would be forced to live amongst your own people.....and we all know you wouldn't want that.
