On the morning of Thursday, 7 July 2005, four moslem men detonated four bombs—three in quick succession aboard London Underground trains across the city and, later, a fourth on a double-decker bus in Tavistock Square. As well as the four bombers, 52 civilians were killed and over 700 more were injured in the attacks, the United Kingdom's worst terrorist incident since Lockerbie as well as the country's first ever suicide attack.
On 26 June 2015, there was an Islamic terror attack at the tourist resort at Port El Kantoui, about 10 kilometres north of the city of Sousse, Tunisia. Thirty-eight people, thirty of whom were British, were killed when an armed gunman attacked a hotel.
On this 10th anniversary of the London attacks, I can't help wondering what will happen later today?
I was going to write a long piece on these attacks, but I think it more appropriate to reflect on two things :
(1) We should remember the victims of these attacks and the many others around the world over recent years
(2) We should remember that Islam is a religion of peace
Well, one out of two isn't bad...
