Skip to comments.UK 'Biggest Audience' in Europe for Jihadist Web Content

Online jihadist propaganda attracts more clicks in the UK than any other country in Europe, a report has found.
Britain is the fifth-biggest audience in the world for extremist content after Turkey, the US, Saudi Arabia and Iraq, Policy Exchange's study said.
The think tank suggested the UK public would support new laws criminalising reading content that glorifies terror.
The government has told internet companies like Facebook and Google to do more to to remove jihadist material.
Former US military chief General David Petraeus, who wrote a foreword to the report, said efforts to combat online extremism were "inadequate".
He said the bombing of a London Tube train last week "merely underscored once again the ever-present nature of this threat."
"There is no doubting the urgency of this matter," he said.
"The status quo clearly is unacceptable."
The report suggested new laws to criminalise the "aggravated possession and/or persistent consumption" of extremist ideology - but not to criminalise someone who "stumbles across" jihadist content.

It’s just a coincidence. Yeah that’s it, a coincidence.
“The think tank suggested the UK public would support new laws criminalising reading content that glorifies terror.”
But - that would mean actually recognizing the fact that muzzies are responsible for most of this crap. And that constitutes a ‘backlash’. We can’t have that. It would upset the religion of pieces.
Quick, censor everyone!
You know what will happen. Anything that advocates freedom or tolerance or criticizes jihad will be banned as “extremist” while jihadists will be free to preach hate, recruit members and plot attacks.
Better idea for those publishing jihadist propaganda...shoot them as they sleep at night. Quietly.
Lawrence of Arabia syndrome.
The UK government knows all that. They choose to make out they don’t, because they are resigned to the fact that m*slims are popping out babies at a rapid rate, and that the future of the UK is *slam. They don’t care about the normal people, and willingly throw them to the savages in order to keep those m*slim votes coming.
We need to expand the bloody travel ban.
