Not forgetting that thousands of people of all races, countries and creeds are held in secondary processing for long periods and a large proportion of those are denied entry every day.

In not defending anything but im also not prepared to jump on the bandwagon based on a one sided story in the press.

"He was given several options but chose to withdraw his application."

That seems consistent in all the reports.

None mention his Visa type, Nationality etc etc so who knows what the story is.

Without the benefit of hindsight it is a pity UK Immigration was not so careful.

Guessing he means the Egyptian student who aided the suicide scum. It is a bit hard to stop the bombers when they hold a British passport becuase they were born there though.

But I can see why people do view ALL Muslims as the enemy within these days, hand on heart how many people would give a 2nd look to a mulsim in full garb sitting on the same plane or train as them now ?

I'm ashamed to say that I'm guilty of that. As soon as I get to the gate I always have a good old look at the other passengers.

I flew over to the UK 10 days after 9/11 and yes I did check out the other passengers, more than I ever had before.
