I'm sorry
I didn't know we had to check for grammer on a BBS board. Is that the best you can hold against me?


"Grammar check" is the correct spelling, and it wasn't a grammar check, it was a spelling check.

As for holding anything against you, well your posts about all terrorists being Arabs, and all rude people being Chinese aren't particularly correct and seem rather racist actually.

Let's just remind ourselves that in recent times terrorists have included people from Europe, Africa, South Asia (India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka)  and East Asia, not just Arabs.
(I.R.A., E.T.A., Al Quaeda, L.T.T.E., J.I. )
And the victims of terrorists have come from Europe, Africa, South and East Asia, not just westerners.
Let's remember one group of western European terrorists got a fair bit of help from their terrorist support networks in the USA. I am talking about the IRA, of course.

As for rude people, well fortunately in my travels I have mostly met polite people, but I have met a small number of rude people and they have come from all over the world, not just China.

As for your spelling, well it's a silly mistake usually made when people say something without thinking about it. A bit like racist-type comments, really.

I thought you were better than that, Metto.

Just like in general all inconsiderate and rude pe ...

You don't know me to come to your hastily conclusion that I should be any better than that. You are just saying that to make me feel bad, didn't work. But good try.

And the majority of terrorists in Europe their origins are from where?

Oh, BTW. When you speak the truth, it might sound a bit racist and mean.

I don't recall your earlier posts being so blatantly racist, that's what I meant.

Well 20 years ago those terrorists were from Ireland (IRA) or North East Spain (ETA).
A few years earlier there were also some terrorists from Germany (Baader Meinhof), in Europe.


Now you said that "in general, all terrorists are Arab".
The recent London/Glasgow attacks, most of the would-be bombers were from India or Pakistan. They are not Arabs.

The Bali Bombings a few years ago. Most of the bombers and plotters were Indonesian or Malaysian, not Arabs.

Sure the 11th September attacks were perpetrated by those who were mainly of Arabic background, but events since then have involved terrorists from other cultural or ethnic groups.

It is clearly wrong in fact (let alone the racist aspects) to suggest that all or even most terrorists are of an Arab background.
What these recent terrorist attacks do have in common is that they are done by individuals or groups in the name of a twisted and fundamentalist perversion of religious extremism.
