British citizens make up about 25 percent of foreign fighters of the al-Shabab group in Somalia, according to a report by the London-based Royal United Services Institute (RUSI).

“Britons are thought to make up about 25 per cent of the 200 or so foreign fighters that the Al-Shabaab group in Somalia currently fields, and who are engaging in a deepening war on neighboring Kenya and its tourist trade. Most of these individuals appear to be only informally networked, making the most of personal links through Kenya or South Africa,” says the report.

Earlier on February, the UK Prime Minister David Cameron had warned that Britain faced a security threat from radical Somali-born youngsters, with British intelligence agency MI5 confirming that there are currently a "significant number" of Britons training with al-Shabab.

This is obvious to anyone paying attention. It isn’t a religion of peace, it isn’t even a religion - it is a totalitarian political system with religious aspects for control of the people and for “cloaking” what it is really after.

It is long past time to stop treating it as a religion, and treat it like Nazism or Communism.
