    I wonder how many 'Islamic bookshops' in Birmingham, Bradford/Leeds/Manchester and London (amongst other places) don't have intricate wirey - type transmitter devices squirreled away in them?
     
  3. We really do need to tidy up a few domestic issues in this country don't we?
     
  4. That will never happen. The UK is on the way down the tubes, and it is possibly too late to stop it.
     
  5. You can't definitively conclude that a particular book or text set someone down on the route to extremism. There tends to be more than one 'trigger' involved.

    I'm liking his name though, Hassan Abu Jihad?

    Maybe the Seppos mocked his surname so he thought he may as well live up to it :p

    The prosecutors are only asking for 10 years for this traitor - sounds like he is going to get off lightly.
