RE: OT London gets the Olympics

My thoughts are with all of the people in the U.K. We may joke with each other but we are brothers(and sisters)and we feel for you. A terrorist attack against one member of the world family is an attack against all of us.

Are our London friends ok??? Joyfulheart, how are things in your area?
Well I took a train to Kings Cross shortly after another train had carried 21 people to their death there this morning.
I hope the London Muslim community take the lead in condemning and opposing this murder.
On a day when London woke full of Olympic ideals of brotherhood and human excellence, we are faced with indiscriminate murder of working people. People that have lots of power or wealth, and the armed forces, generally dont get on public transport. So its ordinary people that are hurt.

Hopefully my family are OK, I am assuming they are but not sure yet. Thanks for your thoughts.
Joyful - that was so well put. I drove back from London yesterday, after working nights at Baker Street Tube. I cannot imagine anyone condoning wannton terrorism, when you don't even know who your enemy (in reality, victim) is. I know and work with many ethnics, both in your very close part of the world, and throughout the UK - I have still never yet met anyone who sympathises with this (or any) type of attrocity. Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do, fighting an enemy who thnks his oppressor is the rest of the world (Muslim, Christian or whatever). This type of attrocity is never going to stop, unfortunately. Nothing can be done against suicide bombers, or any other type of terrorist - who is the guy standing next to you - no one knows, until you have no chance of ever knowing. After 9/11 I was so pleased, that there was no anti-ethnic uprising, but unfortunately, a tiny tiny minority of pschycos can reek such havock.

My heart goes out to the victims and their loved ones.

I hope yours are all OK.
