    Thank God it was disarmed, so many of my friends and family work in London, it is becoming more and more worrying.

    I'd be more worried about the freedoms and liberties they are losing over time than any damage a bomb can cause mate

    Latest updates indicate that the target appears to be the Tiger Tiger Club in London's West End.

    So are clubbers being targetted now ?

    I'm curious. Is the bomb the result of some grudge against that particular club, or is there some deeper ideological motive ?

    Terrorists usually put their bombs where they'll kill and maim the most people. Let's say the thing was set to go off Friday night when a popular club was sure to be packed with customers. It's the same reason why suicide bombers in Tel Aviv target ice cream shops on a hot day, pizza parlors and shopping malls.

    As a Muslim in UK my fears are how some people will blame the actions of a few individuals on all the Muslims within British society.

    It seems that the views of the minority are always inflicted on the majority.

    Generally speaking, people will start to view Muslims with suspicion, even contempt, just as the hardline Muslims will view non Muslims as viable targets (they don't mind if they kill Muslims either). After all, what does a terrorist look like?

    I for one won't judge a whole religion based on the actions of a very small minority. Even so, I saw a car near Gatwick apparently broken down with a Muslim walking away and definitely had my suspicions raised.

    Unfortunatley some people will see all muslims as terrorists and some people will also see Islam as a terrorist religion. What I do have to say though is that most terrorists do follow a religion such as Catholic, Islam and Christinaity. I have read the Koran and the Bible and I dont follow either faith but in each of those books (and that is what I believe they are) there are parts where you can take them one way and say that bit means we have to kill people who dont follow our beliefs or you can take it another way and say they dont believe lets try to help them understand (but not coerce).

    Usually though its the first way

    I have muslim freinds and they condem the attacks.

    But we must look at the fact that this war is now going into the next decade because of the wests foreign polocies and the fact that it thinks it can intefere in someones country when they dont want it.

    I have noticed an increase in weird stares and where once I would be returned with a smile, nowadays when I smile at someone often I get eyes-to-the-ground in return. My appearance would immediately suggest to you that I am a Muslim and probably practicing due to a light beard on my face. But with the way the media has covered the threat of terrorism, I have to be realistic and expect this kind of reaction now in the UK, and try to accommodate to it.

    It's strange when you're born in this country, raised here and grow-up feeling like a Brit that is accepted as a Muslim, to have that suddenly taken away and be made to feel like a criminal for being Muslim, being yelled at by same racists to "go home" -- where would people like me go? No place but this country is home for so many of us. If I went to the ME or Asia I can not speak the language, I do not fit in, I am an outsider -- do I go there just because the majority share the same religion as me??

    A lot of troubling times ahead for Muslims in the UK.

    It seems to go back in Belfast about 10 years ago.Maybe is worst
    i suppose.
    The english police seems to know how to face terrorism anyway.
    What i hated more in Belfast was loosing the freedom to walk or park my car where i wanted to do.
    Or force myself to keep my mouth shout becouse i didn't know who was listening.
    Hope this horrible time will be over soon.
