Et par nyheder fra England sætter Vestens situation godt i relief. Fra Telegraph

The National Association of Muslim Police (NAMP) claimed that ministers were wrong to blame Islam for being the “driver” behind recent terrorist attacks.

Far-Right extremists were a more dangerous threat to national security, it said.

The officers told MPs that Muslims were being “stigmatised” by the Government’s attempts to tackle terrorism, which was adding to “hatred” against entire communities.

Det er også uretfærdigt. Og alligevel er det jo ikke grebet ud af den blå luft. Fra Jyllands-Posten

Storbritannien bedømmer, at risikoen for et terrorangreb er steget og har derfor hævet trusselsniveauet for international terrorisme.

Det er ændret fra en “betydelig” til “alvorlig” terrortrussel, meddeler indenrigsminister Alan Johnson.

- Det betyder, at et terrorangreb er meget sandsynligt, men jeg skal understrege, at der ikke er efterretninger, der tyder på, at et angreb er nært forestående, siger han i en pressemeddelelse.

Men på den anden side. Ifølge Associated Press of Pakistan

Imams and religious scholars from hundreds of Muslim organisations will gather in Birmingham on Saturday to discuss the rise in Islam phobia and anti-Muslim attacks in the UK and across Europe.

(…)

In a statement, the MCB Secretary-General Dr.Muhammad Abdul Bari said this further enhances the legitimacy to ignore the concerns of the British Muslim community and increases the possibility of more anti-Muslim violence. Due to the lack of any clear policy or directive by the British government, it has emboldened the far right groups, who are now increasingly targeting Muslims and their places of worship with virtual impunity.
Urging the government for a clear policy, he said the MCB is expressing the concerns of the British Muslim community that should anti-Muslim hatred remain unchecked and unchallenged by the politicians, media and the police, it has the real potential to lead and recreate civil unrest like those events of Oldham and Bradford in 2001.
“By not confronting these issues, it will inevitably lead to a breakdown in community relations at a time when there should be direct partnership to combat the rise of the far right with long term consequences on community cohesion,” he observed.
Dr.  Bari further said: “The soaring anti-Muslim violence makes it more than ever necessary for the MCB and its affiliates to work harder to continue raising awareness and educating people about religious diversity that they share and benefit from in the UK .

Og de stakkels myndigheder prøver at være et skridt foran udviklingen. Fra DR

Britiske myndigheder undersøger muligheden for at benytte sig af ubemandede fly - droner - til overvågning af landet egne borgere.

Flyene kan hjælpe myndighederne i forbindelse med blandt andet trafikforseelser, demonstrationer, ulovlig dumpning af affald og tyverier af landbrugsmaskiner.

Tjah rettidig omhu måske, men, hvis nu man turde kalde trolden ved navn behøvede det jo ikke eskalere længere og længere ud.
