Kissing British Butt

I was reading the BBC's "Have Your Say" which is a message board (heavily censored) where people can post comments about current issues. Today's headline question reads: "UK terror plot: Your reaction". I was struck by the number of butt kissing Americans groveling at the feet of the Brits thanking them for foiling a terrorist plot against the United States. While I am grateful for the British and Pakistani intelligence, I think instead of kissing British butt we as Americans should be asking them why they keep producing so many terrorists to begin with. Maybe if western Europe wasn't the hot bed of terrorist plotting (9/11 was planned there) then Europeans wouldn't have so many terrorist plots to foil. By the way, I sent this comment to the "Have Your Say" people but it f ailed to make is past the BBC censors. I hope it will make it past yours.

What an excellent point. And from another letter:


Once again the public and the media are failing to see the obvious that the latest foiled terrorists are from Europe and not the Middle East. Sure, congratulations British security for a job well done, but why are so many fanatical Muslims seeking to destroy the United States born and bred in Britain and elsewhere in Europe? There are more organized Muslim radicals in Britain and Germany than in all the Middle East. They aren't even necessarily of Middle Eastern origins. The infamous shoe bomber Richard Reid is a perfect example. Most people I talk with from Britain are convinced that Reid is the victim of the "evil, corrupt" American justice system and not the other way around. They're not even slightly embarrassed one of their own was arrested for attempted mass murder. They actually feel MORE morally superior as a result. What is happening in Britain to cultivate such inhumane attitudes against Americans? Has Marxism truly succeeded in altering the thinking of an entire people? I was treated more kindly by Muslims and Arabs in Jordan and Dubai than I was by white people in London and Germany. We can't ignore the fact that even the terrorist attack on Sept. 11 was planned in Europe, not Iraq or Saudi Arabia. It's bad enough the Europeans have a history of appeasing those they fear, but to provide the foddering ground for these psychopaths - buoyed by radical Leftist anti-Americanism - is another thing altogether. How long will we in America cover our own eyes to Europe's role in this continual deadly plot to destroy the United States? I feel helpless. Everyone seems ignorant to this, even conservatives. About the only thing I can do is spread the word and boycott all things Europe--which isn't that difficult these days considering Europe's production levels are near zero. Mr. Steyn, I wish you would shed more light on this. I know Europe is thought of as America's "ally," but with friends like Europe, who needs enemies?

Yet again you prove to be the only trustworthy source of sane opinion regards the arrests of the "British citizens" who wanted to bring about another 9/11. It is actually embarrassing however that we here in Britain have to turn to somebody overseas to get this opinion. Thank god for the internet. Over here any debate on the threat of Islamic terror is so deeply and hurriedly quashed that anybody would think the authorities/media/politicians had something rather unpleasant they would like to hide.


I saw some graffiti on a wall last week, it said in large writing '"Islam, death religion" - within days it had been scrubbed off (almost certainly by the town's authorities). The same town has graffiti that has been stencilled on various walls, it says "Stop the war - March against War against Iran - no more war for oil". I expect this graffiti will still be visible for many years to come.

Why do the Isamicists bother blowing up planes anyway? Can't they see they've won here already?

Many times the letters to Mark Steyn are as good or better than what he writes himself!

We in EU know Bush and the CIA cabal set up 911.

How did building 7 go down?

You still sleepwalking the american dream.

I don't want Americans sleepwalking across my border. Shit dont happen by itself. Clean up your Junta first, and oh, yeah, then you can start clean up the Mexico Junta.

Wow, if people in the EU believe 9/11 was an inside job, then their continent won't survive past 2050 with such irrational "thinking." If this is what passes as intellectual discourse in Europe, no wonder the US is still blowing Europe away in technology and science. Europe is notorious for refusing repsonsibility of things. 9/11 was plotted in Europe, so they dismiss this and cliam it was actually plotted by Americans on American soil. Europeans are actually pushing the myth that the holocaust was started by the US. There is an old saying: "once man no longer believes in God, he'll believe in anything." Europeans prove this saying frightingly true.

Martin, there are a lot of Americans who believe 9/11 was an inside job, too. I don't agree with them, I just think that it was god send to Bush. It saved him from being noted as an ineffective president during his first term and gave his henchmen, Cheney, Wolfowitz, Pearle, etc the excuse they were looking for to attack Iraq.

Jeff, can't you see the difference between the two graffitti postings? The first is an attack on an entire religion based on the actions of a minority. It isn't racist because it is about religion not race but it's the same thing. The second is political comment. You might disagree but it isn't discriminatory and is only politically offensive, which should be allowed, not a personal attack on entire group.

Hitler was a Christian as were most of his followers. He killed more than any particular group of Muslims. So should I say Christianity is a death religion?

Martin, there is an old saying that those who believe their god wants something will do unspeakable things. Actually it isn't an old saying but it is true. That Christian president of yours is doing unspeakable things.

They hate you because you think and believe your better than everybody else.
