Mixed Feelings

I'm not sure what to say. In the past week or so, Windsor has been host to something quite nice as well as something terrible.

This morning, I heard about attacks at a Muslim-owned dairy quite nearby. The whole story is a bit hazy, but the dairy was attacked by people throwing petrol-bombs. (Story here.) (Before you get worried about riots here in Windsor, the only way I heard about it was that someone at school heard about it on the radio this appears to be quite isolated to that small area. It's less than a mile from my house, but I didn't know about it until today.)

A week ago, we learned that the Queen personally approved plans to convert one of her private offices at Windsor Castle to a Muslim prayer room so Castle employees had a place to pray, particularly during Ramadan.

Goodness, if the Head of the Church of England can abide Muslims praying in one of her private offices, certainly the people near the dairy can abide Muslims praying on their own property.
