WHY OH WHY would you take the chance to holiday in these places now. Ive spoken to people in my taxi that have booked for Sharm etc and I ask them why take the chance although we all know you take a chance where ever you go but why take a bigger risk by going to Egypt and other dominantly muslim run countries.

The reply I get is why should I let a few people spoil our holiday, errrrrrrrrrrrrr because they carry guns, knives and explosives and they dont care who they kill, you are stuck in a hotel of fear of walking around the streets etc, perhaps this is a good reason not to go to these places this day and age.

Im sorry and I know their are alot of good people out there that rely on us to pay their wages but would I take a chance taking my family there, would I hell, thats not a holiday, whats so relaxing about looking over your shoulder.

Egypt is a place I always wanted to visit but its just too unstable now. Sharm another lovely place that we were asked to visit years ago, I wouldnt go. Turkey, lots of amazing places and lately Ive wanted to visit it but would I go, NO to risky and too close to Siria infact I would keep my family away from all muslim countries they are just to unstable, its not all the people as many people have told me how lovely these people are, its just the idiots playing soldiers thats spoiling it for good honest people trying to make a living.

I feel so sorry for the locals it must be hell watching the tourist numbers drop.

I said it last year but I hope it never happens but Im just waiting for a big attack in Turkey Im positive its going to happen its got to be the easiest target to kill Brits as its just across the border.

It's ok applying this logic to Muslim countries but what about Jamaica?
We've been there and it's not safe to go out at night. Not even particularly safe to go out during the day unescorted.
So if it's not safe, it ain't safe, so avoid. Seems simple to me.

Mark, I know what you are saying but as Daryn says, why would you go.

On the BBC news they made reference to the travellers in the departure lounge at Gatwick waiting to fly out, how would they feel?

Most of these will be going AI, so why not go elsewhere (you could be anywhere in the world with AI in my opinion), I guess price must be a big factor.

I dont think I would go if it was £5.50 for the lot of us TBH. To dangerous now, its not a holiday, I would be standing guard all the time lol. I wouldnt be venturing out for a walk so all your paying for is sun in a prison, sorry I mean complex lol.

If anything were to happen to your family knowing the risks were higher than Spain, Greece etc for the sake of a cheaper holiday I would never forgive myself.

Make you right there. Whatever the price, you don't want to go on holiday and not be able to relax.

No, I agree. Rollocks to the lot of 'em. Tell the small minded 'terrorists' that want the majority of the country reduced to the breadline cos of no tourism that they've won. Eat grass and don't ask me for £3 a week when you're all starving.

Oh is that who they are after, TBH I dont think they care who they hit, even their own people.

I was watching a video a few days back, it was from a Russian source showing oil tankers freely going in and out of Turkey from Syria,thats frightening although we cannot be sure its real what with all this propaganda flying around.
