What fitz on Britz?

Hello Folks,

I know its been a while, but rather than ramble about my hopeless personal life (it aint actually that hopeless, but for blogging purposes one has to be rather melodramatic, no?) i thought it best to make this blog a little more serious.

So you must have seen Britz about two weeks ago?
You know, that 'clever' drama on Channel 4, so intelligently depicting the tale of a brother and sister living two sides of the same coin?

So was it really that intelligent? And are muslims in the UK really split this way?

Lets address the first question:
As Sohail begins to name his motivations for attending the MI5 interview , with well placed dialogue such as " This country gave my family food, clothing and shelter, i owe it my life".

Well i think, yes. Intelligently placed dialogue. Indeed. The drama was well done.

But is it an accurate depiction of the thoughts and motivations of the muslims. Hell no!
Muslims in the UK, are not split in to two camps in this kind of black and white fashion.

You know it, and i sure as hell know it, cos i've mixed with enough to get a good indication.

Remember, Colin Powell immediately post 9/11?
Yes, ladies and gentleman this is a classic potrayal of "you're either with us, or against us."
Those of you who have failed to realise the message being spoken should hang your heads in shame.
