Radicalization of muslims in the UK....

It appears that it is more widespread than previously thought...
Extremists are winning the battle for the hearts and minds of Britain's young Muslims, a disturbing police report warns.

Increasing numbers have become so alienated from mainstream society that they could even lend their support to jihadi terrorism, the study claims.

While most reject violence, many distrust police and are reluctant to inform on extremists.

The report was commissioned by the Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo) after last year's failed bomb attacks in London's West End and at Glasgow Airport. It is to be discussed at Acpo's annual conference this week.

In the most comprehensive research of its kind to date, Prof Martin Innes, of the Universities' Police Science Institute in Cardiff, led a team of researchers which carried out face-to-face and telephone interviews with more than 600 Muslims in London, Birmingham and Oldham.

They found that the radicalisation of young British Muslims was more widespread than previously feared, with "a disturbing proportion" expressing support for extremist elements.

The report, which is being distributed among senior officers, Whitehall officials and ministers, finds that:

• Anger and disaffection are "widespread in sections of Muslim youth".

• There is tacit support for extremist violence within sections of the Muslim community.

• Police need to do more to win the trust of Muslim communities if they are to tackle radicalisation.

• Many Muslims distrust police and are reluctant to inform on extremists, preferring to deal with problems inside their communities.

AND when people distrust Muslims because of the exact type of mind sets we hear the term "Islamophobia" tossed around
and "Racial-profiling" as if Islam is restricted to a RACE of non-White people.

Oh the irony is so sweet , and what better way to prove that Paranoia and Denial not only reside in Physically Abusive spouses to justify violence to prevent "Future" attacks merely by the peception from the existing Paranoia......BUT this State also confirms the Qurans ability to attract the mentally disturbed with an Existing bent to Get-Even and punish everyone because we are all plotting against them from their version of reality.
