The police were on the scene within seconds and had the entire area secured immediately. What are you criticizing them for? Not having a crystal ball?

They're risking their lives protecting the public while you're just sitting on your butt complaining.

After a brave individual disarmed the suspect.

And fellow citizens had to be pulled off the suspect.

Then the police shot the suspect with military style weapons.

#7 - The fact that the attacker was disarmed by a member of the public ( who happened to be an off duty police officer ) does not detract from the excellent response time of the police. That they shot the attacker on the ground is indeed unusual for the UK - but he was wearing a suicide vest ( fake as it turns out but they would not have known) so I suspect that they feared he was going to attempt to detonate it.

As for comparisons with US police, what struck me was that in the many photos I have looked at, I have yet to spot a 300lb obese or 250lb steroid inflated specimen. Looks like the UK expects its policemen and women to be in reasonable shape. The US? Less so.

Do you generally assume that negative attitudes towards white supremacists are justified? Even the ones who don't go out and hurt people are a result of their beliefs?

Guy stabs four people, probably belongs to Imam that preaches about breeding and the take over of England and Europe by Islam.

If he was a Christian stabbing Muslims in Jerusalem then would you get it?

And we are the ones doing the hating? I laugh at your ignorance about whats happening.

No, white supremacy is the belief that whites, whatever that means, are superior to non-whites. You make the assumption that just because someone views themselves as superior to someone else, they're immediately going to hate that someone else.

Islam regards itself as the one true religion, and adherents to all other religions, when allowed to exist, hold a subordinate role. They pay the tax. They keep to themselves. And most importantly, they do exactly as their Muslim superiors tell them to do.

We can't agree on hatred, or the definition of white supremacy, or what constitutes being Muslim. Being Muslim does not equal being an Islamic Supremacist.

Usman Khan was student and personal friend of Anjem Choudary, and we all know about Choudary ...

Islam is different than most centrally organized religions. Anyone fool can go out and create an Islamic studies center, Mosque etc.

Much like Christians.... there is no "head". So now we have all these splinter groups, spreading hatred towards Western ideals.

It is a false assumption.

No it isn't, pay attention, its in the streets of Europe and apparently England.

Any fool can create a "Christian" church, too. Frauds are exposed, but then they become cults, because the congregations are attached to the demagogue leader. I helped with a friend's Korean-American church in Chicago to start a library, and then, suddenly, it came about that their lead pastor was a fraud who had no Master's of divinity, and the church divided. The cult members stayed with their man, and the rest relocated.

In Minneapolis, some of the Somali people may be impatient with waiting in line, I've noticed, and it annoys me. Playing soccer with Somali immigrants, yeah I definitely get annoyed (OMG they stopped play to argue AGAIN?!?!?). But I lived in Korea for several years, and holy crap do they hate waiting for anything. That took some getting used to, and I still think they could learn what I think is better based on my own Yankee experience. And immigrants need to adjust to a degree to their environment. I visited a Mosque in Mankato, MN as an undergrad, and their Imam told me about the necessity of assimilation. Any church's congregation, though, is made of the common people, and the common people don't always reflect the usually more educated insights of their prayer leaders.

It requires patience and conversation that sometimes needs to be confrontational. I get more-so annoyed than offended, I'd say.

Sure, but practically any policy built on that belief is going to rob black Peter to pay white Paul.
That's where the hate comes in, discreetly, posing as a mere ideology.

Speaking of these refugees from Syria, Afghanistan, etc.... they have not exactly been invited.

They showed up because "the west" destroyed their countries. And they took great pleasure in doing so.

If you don't like refugees, you shouldn't have shot up their homes now... no?

The average sentence actually served for homicide in the USA is about 15 years. The group that commits the most murders is the 16-24 age group. With a few exceptions most murderers are out before they hit 40 and there is no registry for them.

"Is black supremacy hatred? "

Yes, equally so.

But I don't necessarily equate "supremacy" to either. There's too many gray areas in between. The word itself is overrated and overused ~ usually by certain groups of both blacks and whites, neither of which have anything to brag about ~ were the truth be known.

Building policy on a ideal is very different than simply believing in the ideal itself. I have absolutely no problem with something thinking the world would be better off socialist. I do have a problem with people trying to force socialism on a society that doesn't want it. And using your logic, all socialists should be singled given that their ideology would inevitably lead to an authoritarian outcome.

Fortunately the recent record of islamist terrorism in western countries has been primarily through acts of crazed individuals and small groups, unlike what has gone on in Africa, South Asia and the Middle East. But, the West must constantly remember that these crazed individuals and small groups are not the general Muslim populace. They are inspired by a relatively small group of radical imams and by well-funded websites that incite violence either against non-radicalized muslims, opposing muslim sects, or against so-called "kafir" (non-believers).

Vigilance is always needed to defeat the crazed zealots, not to persecute the law abiding assimilating, decent majority caught in the middle. But a real effort is needed to determine the funding sources behind the radical imams, behind radical Wahhabism, and behind these radical eZines and websites. Unfortunately, a lot of evidence points to lots of resources for these radical imams and terror-inspiring web sites coming from higher ups in countries that we rely on as allies. Oy!

I don't mind refugees, and unlike you, I mind them stabbing citizens because of their ideology against a country that took them in.

I would also add most of these "refugees" are young male economic opportunist sucked in by a fragamented religion.

Again no problem with refugees from wars I didn't want to enter, but every Democrat today wants to stay and keep make a shambles of the ME.

You use words like "crazy" to discredit them, but as LordVader once said "From my point of view, the Jedi are evil."

Its not a small sect, and its not a crazy small minority that see the West as evil. Its a silent majority.
