Muslims are not to blame for the murder of that Soldier, Religion is to blame, Islam.
And however horrific the crime was, remember that every day innocent civilians are blown up by drone planes, by missiles and by bullets fired by Allied forces, and for what? For Blair & Bush's war.
What happened in London happens every day in the Middle East, every single day, and what for? All in the name of religion, oil and money.
I have great sympathy for the families of those affected by the attack in London, but I also have sympathy for the murdered children of Iraq, the murdered families of Afghanistan. All killing is bad. And when it is done in the name of Religion, or in the name of war you must educate yourself to understand why, and who is truly behind what is going on.
In Muslim schools children are taught that the Profit Mohammed road to heaven on a winged horse! They are taught this as historical fact! We have a generation of Muslims taught fairy tales as fact, much like in Catholic Schools kids are taught of a magical Zombie who was his own Dad who raped his own mom to give birth to himself!
What hope do we have as a nation when our children are being taught such utter bullshit in school.
If we do no educate people, if we do not educate our children to think critically and logically, then of course those with lower IQs will be taken in by religious fundamentalists, they will be brainwashed into doing horrific things in the name of some made up God!
So as you sit that feeling all angry against Muslims, ask yourself, are you doing everything you can to educate yourself, to educate your own children? Remember it is easy to breed hate, but in the long run we all suffer because of it!

When you ask me to respect religion because people believe in it, I want you to remember something. I want you to remember that long ago your ancestors were not Christian or Muslim. They had their own culture and customs native to their heritage. Through military conquest religion spread itself through the Old World, and those distant relatives were faced with a choice: either accept Christianity/Islam or die a painful death. This was how most major religions today achieved their position of respect.
After Europe had been fully indoctrinated, the papal Doctrine of Discovery gave the authority to all good Christians to conquer the native peoples of the New World and claim that land for God and the Church. Millions died mercilessly and were even tortured by Christian heroes like Christopher Columbus.
Now, thousands of years later, when we no longer have to respect these beliefs upon pain of death, we are told that we should respect religion. We are told by those within even the non religious community that we should show respect to these ideas that have gained a place of vaunted privilege in our societies which are built upon the graves of any who dared question or challenge the authority of divine providence.
You think you are being rational. You think you are being reasonable. What you are really doing is propping up the last leg of human slavery to bad ideas and providing intellectual cover for religion to keep a place of honor and respect it never earned.
Please, stop protecting religion in the guise of false humility. Be honest and firm with your beliefs and never expect anyone to respect your ideas unless they earn it, and always be willing to be wrong. That is what it means to be a free thinker.
