Getting frustrated by some people expecting racism from me, because I got blown up. Here it is:

Yes. A Muslim man blew me up, and I lost my leg.
A Muslim man also lost his arm that day wearing a British Uniform.
A Muslim medic was in the helicopter that took me from the field
A Muslim surgeon performed the surgery that saved my life
A Muslim Nurse was part of the team that helped me when I returned to the UK
A Muslim Healthcare Assistant was part of the team that sorted out my day to day needs in rehabilitation when I was learning to walk
A Muslim taxi driver gave me a free ride the first time I went for a beer with my Dad after I came home.
A Muslim doctor offered my Dad comfort and advice in a pub, when he didnt know how to deal with my medicines and side effects.
Contrary to that,
A white brit spat in my girlfriends face for 'fucking a cripple when you could have me [him]'
A White brit pushed my wheelchair away from a lift so he could use it first.
A White brit screamed at my Dad for parking in a disabled bay when I was in the services coming home
(Although, alot of people helped in my recovery! I dont hate white brits either! hahaha)
Point is, fuck off. I know who I dislike, and I know who I dont. I know who I appreciate, and I know who I dont. If you want to hate an entire race of men and women for the actions of a few dickheads feel free, but don't push your views on me, thinking I am an easy target because one douchebag decided it was my day to die.
Blaming all Muslims for the actions of groups like Daeshe and the Taliban, is like blaming all Christians for the actions of the KKK or Westboro Baptist Church.
Get a grip of your lives, hug your family and get back to work.

Truly amazing, when you get a chance to realize that you almost died.. you happen to like a whole lot of things and people, not just hate a lot of things and people.

Oh and this is on CNN: http://www.cnn.com/2015/12/10/europe/amputee-soldier-muslim-facebook-donald-trump/index.html

Watching British politics since Iraq, I think Bush damaged our close relationship with a major ally. Seriously damaged it. It was only last week or so that they voted to join the air war against ISIS with the French.

And I've said enough over the years, here and elsewhere, about the previous administration. "99 years in the electric chair!" "40 years back to Yuma prison, Mr. Thornton!"

In this guy's world most of the British Army is muslim. Simply put, I don't believe his story.

I wouldn't say the army is all muslim but quite a few of their health care workers are from abroad. Infact there's a shortage of nurses and doctors so best way to get into Europe legally.

He didn't "lose his leg to an Islamic militant", he lost his leg to invading someone else's country.

Odd, when the majority of the positions he mentioned were not military. Is there something else you are basing this opinion on?
