Britain’s totally inept “anti-terror chief” Neil Basu

UK: Top “anti-terror chief” blames press coverage for increased jihad terror

“Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu of the Metropolitan police force said that the ‘relentless’ reporting on extremist attacks could be promoting terrorism. Speaking at a counter-terrorism conference in Israel, Mr Basu claimed….that ‘Relentless media coverage of terrorist events is understandable given the public interest, but may exacerbate the problem.’”

Covering up the deeds of jihadists and Islamic supremacists merely aids them by allowing them to operate covertly. Covering up the truth also obscures the accountability of ineffectual leaders such as Neil Basu, which is likely the reason that he does not want press coverage of jihad activity.

He calls himself a ‘pacifist’, you see, but: “If say Pakistan, God forbid, we are fighting a conventional war, we are losing, and if a country is stuck between the choice: either you surrender or you fight ’til death for your freedom, I know Pakistanis will fight to death for their freedom. So when a nuclear-armed country fights to the end, to the death, it has consequences.”

The totally inept “anti-terror chief” Neil Basu

The woefully inept “anti-terror chief” Neil Basu, and others like him, is why jihadist (stealth and violent) enemy combatants have made such inroads in democratic countries; now Basu is spreading his propaganda in Israel, a country that has faced threats to its existence from Palestinian and other Islamic jihadists daily since its founding.

Basu has also stated in the past that he does not believe that Muslims should assimilate. His bizarre reasoning is that “you should be able to practise your culture or religion openly.” It does not matter to Basu what that culture or religion might be. Basu thinks it is “bullying, racism, [and] bigotry to blame for some people being vulnerable to terror recruitment.” He dismisses 1400 years of Islamic conquest, as well as continued efforts to promote the jihad against the House of War. Basu is particularly bigoted, egotistical and ignorant to think that Western countries are responsible for 1400 years of Muslim conquest and rage. What is most astounding is that he continues to be an authority in his position as “anti-terror chief.”

As long as this particular mindset continues to be accepted in the West, free societies are doomed to transition from Dar al Harb (the House of War) to Dar al Islam (the House of Islam) — which has been the goal of normative Islam for 1400 years.

“Top Anti-Terror Chief Blames Press Coverage for ‘Exacerbating’ Terrorism,” by Victoria Friedman, Breitbart, September 11:

Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu of the Metropolitan police force said that the “relentless” reporting on extremist attacks could be promoting terrorism.

.
Speaking at a counter-terrorism conference in Israel, Mr Basu claimed in comments reported by The Telegraph that “Relentless media coverage of terrorist events is understandable given the public interest, but may exacerbate the problem. I am concerned that both social and mainstream media unwittingly amplify the threat.

“I don’t seek to undermine press freedoms – they are important – but I do want to work with them to understand if their reporting style can help prevent, not promote, terrorism.”

Mr Basu was criticised in July for seemingly undermining press freedom when he told journalists that publishing leaked diplomatic memos, in the wake of the the Kim Darroch affair, may be a “criminal matter”.

The assistant commissioner is widely tipped to be the next head of London’s Scotland Yard — which also has responsibilities for coordinating counter-terrorist activity nationwide — departed from the accepted position that terrorism needs to be defeated through intelligence and policing, by telling The Guardian last month that extremism needs to be fought also through “policies that go towards more social inclusion, more social mobility and more education”.

Exploring what he believes makes some people are more ‘vulnerable’ to recruitment by terrorist groups than others, he said: “It might be everything from high anxiety, to lack of confidence, lack of education, things that may have happened to them when they are young, bullying, racism, bigotry, lack of opportunity, early experiences with law enforcement even, domestic violence.”….

  1. Even worse this “Neil Basu” twat should know better – WTF is wrong with his own family, that they don’t “smack him upside his haid!”?!?
