Moaning Muslims?

I have been amazed and affronted by the reaction to the police raids on terrorist suspects in Forest Gate, in London. The police, acting on urgent and credible intelligence, raided a house where chemical weapons were suspected of being prepared – in the confusion one suspect was shot, though apparently not seriously injured. Immediately the entire Muslim 'community' is up in arms at the outrageous fact that the authorities dare to take action against suspected terrorists in this way – regardless of the fact that they themselves are as much in danger as anyone else. And the suspects were Muslims – what a surprise, considering that the overwhelming terrorist threat is from Islamic militants! And now the police have gone so far as to apologise for the 'disruption' caused by the operation. It's beyond belief. Apparently it's much more important not to 'offend' Muslims than to protect innocent people from potential mass slaughter and mutilation.It seems to me that people's thinking is completely confused on this matter – either we take action against suspected terrorists, or we don't; if we don't, and they are terrorists, then the consequences will be appalling – much worse than upsetting a few Muslims who enjoy wallowing in victim mentality. Even if these suspects do turn out to be innocent, it's surely better that a relatively harmless mistake be made, inconveniencing a handful of people temporarily (and no doubt they would get copious legal aid and compensation) than that genuine terrorists go free? There are some who have a sensible point of view on this – there was a letter from a Muslim gentleman in one of the papers saying that Muslims should stop complaning and give every support to the authorities in the fight against terrorism. This is exactly what I think – less complaining and perhaps more apologising for having nurtured extremism in their midst, would be in order. While the 'pc' politicians and politically-manipulated police pander to paranoia and hostility amongst Muslims the latter will only be encouraged to become more obstructive and self-pitying. We must stop cringing to and appeasing the Muslims. Despite denials by the 'liberal' media, we are in fact involved in a war –– and in wars you sometimes have to be ruthless if you don't want to be defeated. An upsetting fact for the pacifists and left-wing 'fellow travellers' of Islamist violence, but a fact, nonetheless. (Note: the suspects have now been released without charge. As far as I'm concerned this doesn't alter the pros and cons of the situation one iota. No doubt it isn't pleasant to be shot – but to be brutally honest, it sends a signal to the real terrorists that the police guns are not just for decoration. The shootee can certainly look forward to retirement on the ample compensation he will receive – possibly up to £250,000, I hear.)
