A UK Muslim's response to 7/7

Courtesy of Catez Stephens of Allthingstall comes what many of us have looked for: A Mulim's condemnation of 7/7. He shares our disgust with the appalling slaughter of the innocent. He echoes our outrage at the silence and equivocation from the Muslim community. Behold:
I was ashamed when Muslims and Arabs committed the evil 9/11 attacks; I was even more ashamed when Muslims and Arabs celebrated these attacks in the streets. I despise them all.

I was ashamed because those murderers have stained our faith and heritage with dishonour. For similar reasons I was ashamed when Saddam was in power, he damaged the image of Iraq and Iraqis when he destroyed our country and committed mankind's most evil atrocities against his own people and against others.

Yesterday I was ashamed, because Muslims have attacked innocents in the country that has given to Muslims more than any other Muslim or non-Muslim country. I was ashamed because of the wickedness and ungratefulness of those who call themselves Muslims.
He had harsh words for one of his co-religionist's that complained of arrests in the bombings:
Today on my way to work I was listening to BBC radio five. A Muslim caller named Abdul said he was "sorry" for the victims, and then quickly jumped into attacking the security forces and called their methods and arrest of terrorism suspects as bullshit and not based on enough evidence. He was angry and he strongly condemned the police actions, yet he refused to condemn yesterday's attacks; he refused to say that those who died yesterday, died unjustly. He was "worried" that the Muslim community was being alienated! He thinks that the evidence, under which 2 or 3 Muslims from his area, who were held under the terrorism act, are flimsy.

I was so angry I didn't know what to do, I wanted to call radio five, but didn't have the number. People like Abdul shouldn't live in this country, they should be denaturalized and sent back to the shit-hole the came from.
He offers no excuses and demands justice be done. He calls for action and accepts no excuses:
This country and the rest of the free and democratic world must wake up and put a stop to fanatical Islamic organisations that promote terrorism, recruit terrorists and or simply sympathise with terrorists. Radicals who sympathise with terrorists must have no place in these countries and must either be sent back to the shit-hole they came from or sent to Gitmo. Organisations like al-Muhajiroun and Hizb ut-Tahrir, and people like Abu Hamza al-Masri and Omar Bakri should have no place in this country. Either that, or say goodbye to this way of life.
We must do everything we can to welcome men and women like Ahmad. We must stand with them and resist those that would silence him. We must defend those that would damn him for the murders committed by his co-religionists. He, and others like him, must become legion and awaken the silent majority among the Muslim world. Their help will turn the tide in the war against the Islamo-fascists. We can't fail them.

Benjamin Franklin said it when the Americans first declared independence: "We must all hang together, or we most assuredly will all hang seperately." His words are just as true today.
