Has al-Muhajiroun been underestimated?

One of the London Bridge attackers was a follower of the banned al-Muhajiroun network. But has the UK been guilty of not taking the Islamist group seriously enough?

The man in a white robe with the microphone at the front of the hall addressed his audience of al-Muhajiroun supporters. Even with cameras there, he didn’t hold back.

“When Tony Blair came out, George Bush came out at the same time and he said: ‘Are you with us or you’re with the terrorists?’ What did we Muslims say?”

He paused for effect.

“We’re not with you, we’re with the… terrorists.” The audience finished his sentence for him and cries of Allahu Akbar [God is great] echoed around the room.

    Politicians habitually hope that these loonies will go away and make life easier for them without their having to exert their authority. Wishful thinking is the rule, not the exception.

    How is that haircut different – in essence – from the cuts given the Allied servicemen in WW II?

      Wrong thread. But I agree with you.

    It’s obvious al-Muhajiroun don’t take the Brits seriously. And rightfully so.
