* Orwell sends his regards:
*Â The new law would increase the number of days a suspected terrorist could be held.Â This is somehow considered anti-Muslim.Â Why you ask?Â Â Because most people arrested under these laws are Muslim.Â Don’t even try and make any sense of it, because there isn’t any.Â Multiculturalism/dhimminess is slowly bleeding Britain dry….Â
* The search for ‘hearts & minds’ continues, while reason & common sense was lost…Â
The government’s proposed counterterrorism measures risk ‘alienating’ Muslims, it was admitted yesterday. A Home Office equality impact assessment said measures in the counterterrorism bill could foster a sense of persecution among Muslims and lessen their willingness to report suspicious activities.
Proposals to make it an offence to gather information on members of the armed forces that could be useful to a terrorist would increase the sense Muslims are “not sure what they were allowed to talk about any more,” the Home Office consultation noted.
And the government’s keystone plan to increase the period for detention without charge to 42 days risked harming relations and information-sharing between Muslim communities and the police.
* But a Muslim is not allowed to give evidence to infidel authorities against other Muslims…
“Muslim community representatives expressed a concern that this may lead to increased reluctance among their communities to provide vital co-operation and assistance to the police and security services,” the equality impact assessment, which was published alongside the bill, said.
There is already a perception that most people arrested under counterterror legislation are Muslims, (they are! -ed.) the assessment found, and people felt they were targeted as a religious group rather than individuals.
Overall the consultation pinpointed “strong concerns” that the legislation is anti-Muslim” and the Home Office was told to do more to win the “hearts and minds” of the Muslim community.
* How can you win the ‘heart & mind’ of a crocodile?Â
