Love one another.

Facebook and twitter are filled with some of the most disturbing images I have ever seen...alongside the pictures of happy families smiling into the camera on beaches are the videos of British Muslims dressed in black and proclaiming Sharia law.

The hatred on both sides is apparent...the willingness to believe the worst of each other is frightening me even though nothing of the kind is happening here in Cornwall...

British Muslims must be mostly horrified by what's happening. All the goodwill between the various communities is breaking down day by day...and I am glad to have left Essex.

Oddly summer is often the time when hatred erupts and is brought into focus but we are now in a new season and it's surely time for us all to get back to work and keep the most important commandment by which all religions operate.

You shall love your neighbours as yourself...love...not hate..The Muslims I know personally acknowledge this law...

I haven't spoken to any of my friends since all of this started but I know they must be just as worried by it as I am.

It's time to start loving each other...love, not hate. We ask it in your name Lord.

  1. Sadly there are 'hate' merchants at both ends of the spectrum and most anti-muslim activism is being stirred up by right wing, so called 'nationalist' groups. Reminds me of the Pre-War Oswald Mosely and his Black Shirts causing chaos in the East End, the groups now are overtly racist and their activities include attacks on people who might be different to them, whether they are muslim or not?

    Their activities need to be circumscribed by the authorities who emphasis is on Islamic fundamentalists, when it needs to be looking to the other extremes as well.

    They have the intelligence available, but do they have the political will to use it? At the moment it's just hand wringing and condemnation, we need action now, not when it's too late and these people have established some sort of credibility (evil) in the eyes of the less discerning who might follow them.
