How to combat terrorism

'Apparently in America they're building a big tower on the site of September 11 - Freedom Tower - and they're looking at ways of trying to make it terrorist-proof.  I think they should just build a giant mosque - no-one's going to fly into that, are they?  Or even better: a runway.  How galling would it be if you hijacked a plane then had to come in and make a textbook landing?  They're always going "oh, don't deal with terrorists, we mustn't deal with terrorists"...  Let's deal with them: "what are they offering you, boys?  A hundred virgins?  We'll offer you fifty slags.  Or two women from Dundee"'

- Scottish comedian Frankie Boyle, on Mock The Week, 2007
