British authorities not taking serious steps in dealing with terrorism
In London, the depth of the ignorance of British authorities as to who is the enemy was on display as the Met Police Commissioner defended his Department's decision to invite Tariq Ramadan to analyze the causes of the attack in London. You may remember Ramadan being in the center of a controversy when an Institute at Notre Dame University tried to employ him. In light of his record the Immigration Department refused to allow him into the United States. Daniel Pipes has written several pieces on this matter. Ramadan had also been banned by France because of his terrorist background. For one, his family is directly connected to the bloodthirsty Muslim Brotherhood. This is the man British Authorities are going to learn from. Guaranteed he will identify Israel and the United States as the main culprits. Ramadan is a smooth operator who will say the right things to get his foot in the door but he is still an apologist for Islamic terrorists.Some people say that Britain is worse than France in terms of dealing with Islamist fanatics, and in their approach to the problems with bigotry in the world, and they've certainly got a point. Britain is not going to succeed in stopping the Islamist threat to even their country if they're going to be willing to consult someone like Ramadan on the subject, and the UK government certainly isn't doing any better by going along and paying money to the PLO, as pointed out in this blog entry.
