    Muslims tackle looters and bigots

    British Muslims' reaction to the riots should dispel any continued demonisation in the media.
    Robert Lambert Last Modified: 12 Aug 2011 12:02

    "When accused of terrorism we are Muslims, when killed by looters, we become Asian", a Muslim student explained to me. He was commenting on the media reportingof the death of three young Muslims in Birmingham on Tuesday night. Like many other Muslims, they were bravely defending shops and communities as rioters went on a violent rampage of looting.

      Thought foreign students brought hard currency to British economy....how would such act result on their already poor economy when foreign students learning language or higher education leave or refrain from Britain...!?

      How if his home land population reacted on such action to one of theirs by mistreating any British citizens visiting Malaysia as tourists or working as expatriates...!?

      Tell you some might take that as a sign for some thing that has to happen since you may not know or realize that the Student name and surname is "Muhammad Rasoli" which adds up to meaning "Muhammed is Messenger" wouldn't that serve those who wanted it a religious war...?

      Guess we've seen the earthquake,but now should await the Tsunami it would bring after it.!! Another thing I doubt if you ever knew GOD or Jesus in thinking it your way...Peace...if you know what that is or mean..!
