One geologist argued that unlike other longitudes, Mecca's was in perfect alignment to magnetic north.

He said the English had imposed GMT on the rest of the world by force when Britain was a big colonial power, and it was about time that changed.

I was going to put a comment which would typically be a response by most of the indigenous population, with quite a harsh twang to it.

But then I sat and I thought about it for a minute. I then realised I was falling headfirst into this "trap" that is so often being setup by the UK's media.

Let me divulge.

This story to be blatent has no grounds for concern. Its the radical muslim community stating what it always states, that Islam is great and there is no other religion, and everything should conform to Islam. You will ALWAYS get that with the extremists. EVERY religion has them, even the more meek ones that you percieve to be peaceful.

It just so happens that given past 10 years, Islam and its followers have been catapulted into the limelight, and are often painted in negative light, given what some of their "followers" did in the name of religion. Naturally we tar them all with the same brush.

Now that the general populace has a natural disdain towards the muslim community, this produces a hype surrounding outlandish comments and remarks. The likes of which newspapers and the media LOVE because it helps to sell their content.

So what happens, your daily rag prints reports of muslim extremists wanting to change a particular way of life to coincide with their sharia beliefs.

What does that do?

Well it prompts reactions from the indigenous population, similar to what is posted here and similar to what i was going to put.

But herein lies the problem. The media WANT this reaction. They are the proverbial wooden spoon in our generally simmering pot.

So the reaction the media gets, is the one they want, OUR extremist views.

But this only benefits the Muslim cause, because whilst they are trying to establish their way of life and impose it on ours, we are being equally as negative, but due to prior incitement, take it to the next level, where it becomes vastly simpler to throw in the race/discrimination card and show that by all accounts, the British are a population of bigots and racists, simply by viewing a snapshot of comments from our more vocal members.

So Muslims are painted as a religion that wish to bestow all its fundamentals on the rest of the world and woe betide anyone standing in their way.

All those who oppose this are painted a bigoted racists.

The media on the other hand are lapping this up, because regardless of the reporters personal views, this is making papers sell like hot cakes.

Media vessels such as the BBC should stop giving credence to these blatent scaremongering articles, which despite having no substance whatsoever - face facts what is the chance of GMT being changed ever?? - still get printed as headline news.

Solution, cast these articles to the rags they are intended for, such as the Daily Sport, and do some real investigative journalism for once.

You know what... I skipped past Colios post cos I've got a feeling I know what he's saying from just glancing

I'm sick to death of ignorant people slating muslims and other countries... it is SO narrow minded and such a blatant display of lack of knowledge

I grew up with criminals around me, most of my friends are criminals in the eye of the law - but we all know who the biggest gangsters are... the government and the people that control the media... ie Rupert Murdoch

If you are so dumb to sit there and say "oh drop a nuke on the lot of em" or "bloody muslims telling us what to do" that just goes to show your one more person that follows the flock of sheep

This corrupt country that we live in that charges us to throw our rubbish away and park outside our ******* home - then the media poisons our mind and fuels hatred towards other cultures and beliefs simply cos theyre too pussy to point the finger at themselves when things go wrong

This piece of PR Hatred as I like to call it is a typical example of what the media can do to people - look at what its made people say?! and all they have done is incited fear with change

everyone fears change... especially when someone "different" tells them to do it...

I've lost all sense of direction with this post cos to be fair right, im 20 years old and I live in a world full of friends from all different walks of life and I respect each and every persons human right to believe in what they want and I'm sat here having to read posts from people almost twice my ages talking like children

Try learning about other peoples beliefs and maybe begin to understand them a bit better - but for **** sake stop listening to all the **** you read and see on the news! make up your own minds dont let someone else do it for you

Tell you what tho... all these idiots that slate muslims are always suprised when they find out a few radicals want them dead.. like "oh ****, did we say something wrong to piss them off?! they want us dead?! **** we'd never wish that upon them and their familys"

I read your post as basicly saying all Muslims are telling us what to do and are basicly arseholes which is clearly not the case, only the extremists.
Sorry if I read your post wrong
