    South London bomber

    I don’t think it is prudent at this stage to say the attacks in those shops in London are racist. This has not been proven. It may be that the Asian ownership of these shops is coincidental, and thus I’ve changed the heading of Al-Hack’s previous article.

    Much of the media has already labelled this a ‘vicious racist attack’ without being certain of the motives. We should not fall into the same trap.
    Two men have now died as a result of these arson attacks.

    Update 4th May: A man has been charged.

      A second man has now died as a result of the attacks….

      A second man has died following last Thursday’s arson attack on a convenience store in south London, Scotland Yard said today.
      The victim was named as 31-year-old Hamidi Hamidullah, an Afghan national who worked at Price Cutter Food and Wine in Clapham Road, Kennington.

      A Scotland Yard spokesman said a post mortem examination will be held later today.

      Co-worker Khizar Hayat was burnt to death when he was trapped in the store following the daylight attack.

      There’s something a bit odd about this story. Can’t put my finger on what but it’s something about the way it’s been reported…

      go on leon - think hard!

      Maybe I’m just not with it today but that one went waaaay over my head!

      its odd because its conveniant divide/conquer.
      i read a message on the other thread about the nutter being set up by some organisations i.e so called ‘black nationalist’ what utter rubbish. all this talk of a ‘black community’ is crap too.

      I heart mad people.

      Down with capitalism, it causes rape! And paedophilia!

      I throw this petrol bomb into the shop as a protest against the decay of western society as characterised by rape paedophilia prostitution drug addiction hooliganism and crime

      But Shiraz Maher, is there a solution?

      We must know!

      Please tell us!

      Or I’m going out there to throw a petrol bomb in a shop!

      What’s the solution Shiraz? Does it have a name?
