Not so secret funding for militants

A favourite accusation of the anti-war brigade is that the West is to blame for Islamic terrorism as, for years, our governments “secretly funded militant groups.” With the news that arrested suicide bomb suspects were living on generous British state benefits perhaps we should give this argument more credence!

What would you propose?

State benefits cannot be linked to "conditions", but should, and are, linked to needs.

Where would you draw the line? Taking your argument to an extreme, a typical benefit application form could read:

Q1) Do you a militant?
Q2) Do you agree with the policies of the current government?
Q3) Are you a member of any political party?
Q4) If so, is it one we approve of?
.........

Just because a person is opposed to government policy that does not automatically make them a terrorist.

Again, a knee-jerk reaction could penalise a large number of people for the actions of an extreme few, who the vast majority do not support.

By all means clamp down, and clamp down hard, on extremists, but do not fan the flames of bigotry and hatred they are ignighting.

Have to disagree - state benefits for asylum seekers can and shuld be linked to conditions and if the conditions are not met they should be stopped.

I think you are missing the point:

a) As far as I am aware, the bombers were all British, or British Nationals. I.E. British citizens, not asylum seekers.

b) I thought asylum seekers were not entitled to benefits, merely food vouchers?

c) Removing state benefits from asylum seekers would force them to work illegally, with more chance of them being "lost" in the system.

I am totally in support of clamping down on crazed clerics preaching death and hatred outside Mosques. They do nothing but incite violence, and represent a tiny minority of views. They should be dealt with swiftly and decisively.

I do not consider that "human rights", as used currently, should be used as a shield to protect such people. They do not deserve human rights, as the seek to remove others' rights at every opportunity.

We do, however, need to ensure that the rights of the vast majority of decent citizens are preserved, with acceptable modifications if neccessary to protect society.

Human rights have shielded these "Traitors" for years. Immams are not trained, they have no qualifications whatsoever. They are elected by the mass, but not necesseraly in the Mosque's they preach in. Once an Immam always an Immam - anywhere. In this country the church and congregation support the vicar. So - if these Immams come to this country they should be paid by the mosque they wish to be associated with, thus saving us millions in handouts. If they are quilty of inciting violence - in anyway - they must be deported forthwith with their families with no redress - as in France.

Will all of Tony's preaching of late come to fruition - I very much doubt it - he has his wife to deal with first :-)

"BREAKING NEWS"
===============

-Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

These newly enhanced Global Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth before they can
be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for lumber is 30-50 years.

Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number of other benefits.
Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and the lack of oils and sap found in the wood
make it resistant to forest fire, ensuring higher returns on investments.

the wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
time to replant and develop new root systems.

Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140 Million
with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With anticipated
growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during its initial 9-year cycle.

Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153 Million in revenues.
As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree continues to grow around the world
EGTY believes additional multi-million dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of 250,000 infant plants per month.

Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business owners in New Zealand,
Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular and profitable fast growing infant tree plants.
Inquiries from the governments of Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.
