Whereas the families of Palestinian suicide bombers often can count on a supportive environment, those of the four British terrorists who appear to have carried out last week's bombings in London are surrounded by a very hostile public. In spite of the serious subject I could not help smiling and agreeing when I read one of the reactions on the website of Sky News: I see the friends and neighbours of one of the bombers say he was a 'normal' and nice person. Then they mention he had been away for a long time when he had to gone to Afghanistan and Pakistan. Hello? 'Normal' people don't go to Afghanistan for their holidays! Anyone who is known to have gone to Afghanistan should immediately be put on the watch list. David O'Brien
