LONDON MARATHON WILL GO AHEAD DESPITE BOSTON BOMBING – Police, Security Officials and Politicians have vowed that the London Marathon will take place as scheduled despite the atrocity of the Boston Marathon bombings.
British authorities are working around the clock in a desperate attempt in tracking down the 374 British Nationals who took part in the Boston Marathon.
With only 6 days to go before the London Marathon Police have announced they are in the process of beefing up security and checking entrants for the London Marathon in order to avoid a possible terrorist attack.
The Boston Bombings have put immense pressure on the authorities ahead of the even to ensure the safety of both participants and spectators and with the London Marathon expecting to attract hundreds of thousands of spectators the task is both daunting and critical.
The Daily Mail ran a survey to see if the public was in support of the London Marathon taking place and at the last count some 70% of readers voted that the London Marathon should go ahead.
There is no doubt that the world’s eyes will be on London in a few days time to see how and if the authorities can prevent a repeat of the Boston Marathon bombings. There is no doubt that we live in turbulent times and reports are coming out that a man of Saudi decent is being held and questioned in Boston.
If the U.S investigation uncovers that this was indeed another Al Qaeda terrorist attack, which many already believe to be the case, then questions once again will be asked why the West permits Muslims to live and reside within our borders.
This view will be seen by many as an almost racist statement and yet legislation has been created to bind us so that we can no longer speak the truth. What few fail to see or even understand is that this has nothing to do with race but rather purely religion. It is religion and not the colour of a person’s skin that drives Islamic terrorism and once we finally show this for what it truly is then removing them from our borders will not be a problem.
How many more times must we suffer at the hands of terrorists before we finally take definitive action? How many more innocent children, wives, husbands, parents and loved ones must be sacrificed in the name of racial and religious equality when it is crystal clear that Muslims feel that we are not equal and that our religious beliefs are an insult to Allah?
One thing is certain and that is the Boston Marathon Bombings will not be the last time that an atrocity of this nature targets the innocent.
