GOVERNMENT MOVE TO SILENCE HATE CLERICS – Under the mountainous volumes of political correctness legislation it is almost impossible to utter a word or phrase that couldn’t be construed by some as being offensive.
With this notion in mind, it makes you wonder how the growing number of Islamic hate clerics such as Anjem Choudary, are able to stand on the streets of Britain and openly call upon their Muslim brothers to take up arms and murder anyone who refuses to convert to Islam.
Unfortunately that is also part of the political correctness indoctrination that we have been subjected to, for it actively suppresses our right to ridicule or admonish the views from the likes of Anjem Choudary.
Is this all about to change? …
According to Whitehall, the Government has currently identified no less than 25 hate preachers who are about to face a new ‘ASBO’ style anti-terrorism order which will silence them and therefore their ability to spread their vile and hatred.
Downing Street has now revealed that it is to introduce new civil powers which they have based on a ‘dramatically revised definition of extremism, designed to specifically target those hate preachers who attempt to radicalise others into taking up Jihad against innocent people.
Government sources have said that the new order will ban people from preaching hate and terror, associating with named individuals on the list and from entering specific venues, such as mosques or community halls in order to stamp out their ability to spread Islamic extremism.
These measures have been set up by David Cameron in the wake of the murder of Lee Rigy in Woolwich, London earlier this year by Muslim converts Michael Adebolajo, 29, and Michael Adebowale, 22, who have now been convicted of the brutal murder and are due to be sentenced in the new year; it is expected that both will be ordered to remain in prison for the rest of their natural lives.
One individual who is expected to appear on the list is that of Haitham al-Haddad, an Islamic scholar and Palestinian based in London who continues to call for Jihad in the name of Al Qaeda’s former leader Osama bin Laden.
Officials from Whitehall told the media that they are aware of some 25 Islamic hate preachers that operate an informal network which collates information, coordinates rallies and who actively participates in attempting to racialise young people to join their cause for martyrdom against any non-believers.
It may comes as a surprise, that despite Anjem Choudary being well known for such activity that Government officials have stated that he is in fact not on the current list of 25 known Islamic hate preachers.
Despite Anjem Choudary being the former leader of Islam4UK, a banned Islamic extremist group, and that Anjem Choudary has repeatedly refused to condemn the actions of Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale he will not appear on the list.
Regardless of Anjem Choudary’s views he has always been extremely careful not to break any laws and therefore the Government has taken the decision for the time being, not to place him on the list but will continue to monitor his activities for any breach of the law.
The Government also announced that it was working with a number of internet firms, such as Google and indeed the Google owned YouTube service, in order to remove Islamic hate content from the internet; including any content that is deemed illegal under current UK laws.
In a statement to the press Mr. Cameron announced…
“This summer we saw events that shocked the nation with the horrific killing of Drummer Lee Rigby in Woolwich and murder of Mohammed Saleem in Birmingham.
These tragedies were a wake-up call for government and wider society to take action to confront extremism in all its forms, whether in our communities, schools, jails, Islamic centres or universities.
I have been absolutely clear that this is not something we should be afraid to address for fear of cultural sensitivities.”
We have already put in place some of the toughest terrorism prevention controls in the democratic world, but we must work harder to defeat the radical views which lead some people to embrace violence.
The task force I set up has proposed a broad range of measures to counter the extremist narrative. When you look at this report, you can see a very clear analysis, a very clear definition of the extremism we’re talking about … now everyone can see what it is that we need to tackle.
There are just too many people who have been radicalised at Islamic centres, who have been in contact with extremist preachers, who have come across material on the internet who haven’t been sufficiently challenged.
Some institutions have wanted to get rid of radicalisers but haven’t had the means to do so.” British Prime Minister David Cameron
Is this measure enough to silence those who wish to terrorise us and indeed murder us simply because we do not believe and that they feel their lands have been unlawfully occupied by us?
The new measures are indeed one way to tackle the growing issue without resorting to violence however, some feel that these measures will simply push Islamic extremists underground where they are harder to detect and therefore could engage in an increased number of terrorist activities against innocent civilians.
