Muslims suffer double stress rates from London bombings

Muslims suffer double stress rates from London bombings

The stress caused by the 7/7 bombings in London was far more keenly felt by Muslim residents compared with other inhabitants of the capital, according to a psychological study published in the online version of the British Medical Journal. Sixty-one per cent of Muslim commuters surveyed suffered substantial stress in the days following the first terrorist attacks on the city's transport system - almost double the proportion felt by other Londoners. "One can speculate it could be fear of reprisals and being upset about the misusing of their religion [to justify] terrorism," said one of the researchers, Neil Greenberg, from the Institute of Psychiatry at King's College London.

UK more dangerous than a jungle: Iran top cleric

Britain is a terrible place to live and anti-terrorist laws there make life as an animal in a jungle far safer, a top Iranian cleric said Friday, AFP reported. "Day by day, corruption, tyranny, felony, insecurity and different dangers are attacking human society. Just look at the fight against terrorism in Britain," Ayatollah Ahmad Janati said in a Friday prayer sermon. "All gatherings are under the microscope. People should know they are being watched. In cinemas, parks, streets and even in the railway stations, cameras are watching," he said, asking "what kind of security is this when people are constantly monitored?" British police, he said, can also "arrest anyone without any evidence or pressing charges". "Is this life for a human being? No animal in a jungle lives with the amount of insecurity that they have there," he alleged, slamming British authorities for also "spreading insecurity in Iraq, Afghanistan and Palestine."

Boo hoo, so sad... One of our radio talk show hosts tried to get the muslim leaders in our city to organize a march against terrorism. That's it. Just say you're against killing innocent people. Guess what? They wouldn't do it! Surprise, surprise. They said they can't say it's always wrong, and they don't agree with US foreign policy, blah, blah, blah...

How are the Muslims going to take over Britain when everyone who listens to this guy moves back to Iran?

Someone must not have gotten the memo.

I would believe the Iranians are no longer fooled by such propaganda, they have probably figured out that they're living in a murderous dictatorship which does not hold truth and justice amongst its highest values..

I am not sure about this guy though, he probably has Kahmeini down as a nobel peace prize nominee for 2006 already..

CH: you are right except that you should forget the "would" and "probably" and just accept as fact they know exactly who and what the Mullahs are.

Over 3000 died on 9/11 and muslims were the main victims. Oh yes, they had to put up with all those "looks".

53 people died on 7/7, and Muslims are yet again the victims.
