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.’”

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.
