But they won’t. Because that would be un-Islamic. And besides, it defeats the purpose of the jihad:
MUSLIMS in Britain must do more to inform police of potential terrorists, one of the country’s top officers will warn tonight.Â Sir Norman Bettison, Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Police, is to call for greater help from Islamic communities to identify suspects at home.
He says: “I’m looking for the community to work much more closely with the police in identifying young people they have concerns about in terms of people they’re mixing with, the sort of websites they’re going on and the material they’re reading.
“That information can only come from the community itself.”
* This kind of suspects here is much easier identified: FIVE men have been arrested after a Facebook site was set up declaring “all Muslims should be thrown out of Wales”.
Its worse than you think: Facebook is busy deleting Stop the Islamization groups: SIOEngland is gone, SIOAustralia is gone. SIOBulgaria is gone. Stop the Islamization of India is gone, and so is SIOA. Jew-hating groups are -of course- fine!
When asked if Muslims could do more to help pinpoint potential terrorists, he says: “We have to be alert and conscious of the risk that’s ever present and prepared to interdict and share information.
“The community as a whole could do more and the Muslim community as a part of that, yes.”
The police chief speaks out in a three-part BBC documentary, Generation Jihad, which begins tonight. It examines the threat posed by young Muslims who have been radicalised on the Âinternet.
Sir Norman is an Association of Chief Police Officers’ vice-president with responsibility for advising the Government on countering extremism. West Yorkshire also became notorious for Islamic terrorism in 2005 when it emerged that three of the London 7/7 bombers plotted the atrocity from their homes in Leeds and Dewsbury.
Hamaad Munshi, who became Britain’s youngest convicted terrorist after joining a cell targeting the Royal Family at the age of 15, also lived in Dewsbury. Sir Norman, 54, says that it will “probably take 20 years” to prevent the “infection” of extremism spreading within Britain’s borders.
Last night his comments brought a mixed response.
Ratna Lachman, director of JUST West Yorkshire, a project aiming to promote racial equality, said she was concerned that Sir Norman might be tarring “an entire community with a brush of non co-operation”.
Jihad is not about “racial equality”. It is about the enslavement and exploitation of unbelievers. I wonder if Ratna Lachman ever cared to inform herself about what Islam teaches or what the Islamic endgame is.
But a spokesman for the Quilliam Foundation, a think-tank which aims to combat extremism, said:
“Terrorism cannot be defeated by the police alone. It is important that all communities are alert to the dangers of extremism and help the police wherever possible.”
Generation Jihad begins tonight at 9pm on BBC2.
