Re: @Graham Marsden @Manolo - "well meaning people"
Oh dear, Turtle. You've been posting on El Reg long enough to have read posts of mine where I point out Straw Man Fallacies, so *why* do you base your arguments on several of them?
Yes, Turtle, I am *SURE* there were "secret Jihadis" going along in that march chortling up their sleeves "Hah! We will fool the stupid Westerners into thinking more of our people are against Daesh" and that *your* assumptions (without any facts or data to back them up) are entirely valid...
The difference between you and me is that your solution to the "real problem" of a violent minority appears to be to assume that they're *all* potential terrorists and treat them as such (just like the French Police have been doing), not realising that that just drives more of those in the middle *towards* the radicals.
It's hilariously ironic that you try to lecture me on "not havnig any great interest in, or respect for the facts", but, hey, as long as it makes you *feel* safer because "Something Must Be Done" and this is something, I'm sure you'll be happy.
