Britain Admits Failure of Anti-Terrorism Program, Bans Tommy Robinson From Attending EDL Events


After the 7/7 bombings on the London subway in 2005, the U.K. launched a 63 million pound program to combat terrorism.  The program, named “PREVENT”, was recently reviewed.  Subsequently, Britain’s Home Secretary, Theresa May, admitted that the program had failed. Here’s why: (full post below the fold)

Tommy Robinson barred from attending all EDL events by British Government

The abandonment of reason fits hand in glove with the Islamization of once great Britain:

The following is from the EDL website and refers to the continued persecution of EDL Leader Tommy Robinsion:

Defence League fall victim to the regime of those in high places in a pathetic attempt to silence the truth.

Our leader, Tommy Robinson, was charged yesterday by Lancashire police over the Blackburn demonstration and by the Bedfordshire police over the local Luton demonstration against Richard Howitt.…l-Islam-stupid

The Blackburn demonstration was on the 2nd of April, two and a half months ago, and the Luton protest was three weeks ago, so why are the police suddenly finding reasons to charge Tommy? We’ve already seen Tommy face various trumped-up charges that have been laughed out of court, and we’ve seen the ludicrous charge against him of assaulting a police officer as the Muslim extremists burnt poppies.

The program’s strategy aimed to counter terrorist groups largely by funding so-called “moderate” Muslim organizations in an attempt to work jointly toward its goals.  PREVENT also financed overseas operations that were allegedly designed to stem terrorist activity in the U.K.

As it turned out, much of the program’s money went to support non-violent radical organizations that share the same hard-line Islamist ideology as Al-Qaeda and other terrorist entities.  Further, the program’s emphasis on international projects merely wasted precious pounds and “diverted valuable resources” away from the prevention of home-grown terrorism, a growing concern in the U.K.

Home Secretary May confessed that the PREVENT program clearly failed to recognize how terrorist groups make use of the extremist ideology promoted by non-violent radical organizations.  Therefore, the program was unsuccessful in convincing some parts of the Muslim community that terrorism is unacceptable and wrong.  Additionally, the program only targeted a small segment of the audience that is susceptible to terrorist propaganda.

As a result of the review’s findings, there will be a significant shift in the program’s direction.  PREVENT’s new strategy will tackle not only terrorism, but its underlying ideology.  In so doing, it will focus on non-violent extremist organizations.  It will also examine how schools, colleges, and mosques are addressing the problem of Islamic extremism.  It will additionally evaluate the role of law enforcement as well as that of other government entities in combating the problem.

  1. Seems like the UK and the rest of the West did not learn their lesson in 1933 APPEASEMENT never works, it just emboldens bullies, terrorists and Mohammedans.

  2. Tommy is a hero who is suffering for the cause..What are they doing about all the muslim crooks..oh thats right, there are free to loll about on the British tax payer.
