http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/london/4220836.stm Truth is stranger than fiction. This is even weirder than that incident in which a government official ordered all of the flags removed from a British prison out of fear the Muslim inmates might be offended.:lol: http://www.truthandgrace.com/ACLU.htm
I couldn't care less if any inmates gets offended
I bet the warden does.
The 13th RaptorI bet the warden does.
If they complain - threaten to send them to a prison back in their home country - I bet that would shut them up real fast. :lol:
If they complain, listen very carefully. If said complaint is rational, then he might have a point. But if it is removing a bloody flag, or anything else like this, give him solitary.
The new story is even worse. I mean, having the MURDERER'S families attend the ceremonies? I can't think of anything more insensitive. But this is not a new event. The American media is notorious for this. For example, if a suicide bomber kills 5 people, at least one newspaper will report "Car bomb kills 6". Though they stopped that a couple of years ago, because it became too embarrassing.
I imagine the bomber's families are doing it out of respect and to try to detach themselves from their bomber son. I'm really not sure how insensitive it is, or why they shouldn't be allowed to go. It's not like they were supportive of the bombing.
Um, more likely than not -they WERE supportive of the bombings. Look at the news photos after 9/11. All of the Arabs dancing in the streets (While, interestingly, Sharon declared a day of mourning and all Israeli flags went down to half-mast. Really does show who your true friends are. ;) )
Machiavelli's ApprenticeUm, more likely than not -they WERE supportive of the bombings.
I see no mention, and absolutely no reason why they would be allowed if they were supportive of the bombings in this particular case.

But why? Must everything be subverted in the name of multiculturalism? This may sound strange to you - but perhaps a ceremony for the VICTIMS families be limited to the VICTIMS families? (No, a terrorist isn't a victim:rolleyes: )
