    When buses and trains exploded on 7/7 in London, the objective of the suicide bombers was to sow fear and terror in the very soul of the British people. In that the jihadis were successful. One would have expected the British authorities to not just hunt down the terrorists, but also to fight the cancer of Islamism that lies at the ideological roots of jihadi terrorism. Instead, successive governments in London have tried to pussyfoot around the challenge, hoping the jihadi terrorists and their ideology would melt away with time as Downing Street funded so-called "moderate" Muslim groups and "former"...

The crisis at Whitemoor jail in Cambridgeshire has led to calls by staff for the 100 Muslim inmates there to be dispersed to other prisons round the country. Some Al Qaeda supporters have set up a kangaroo court, sitting in judgment on prisoners and ordering punishments, the source said. The violent...

Nicky Reilly, 22, from Plymouth, last month admitted attempted murder and preparing an act of terrorism at Exeter's Giraffe restaurant in May. The Muslim convert's note insisted he was not "brainwashed or indoctrinated". On Friday, a court put back Reilly's sentencing until 30 January to allow doctors to assess his mental state. Defence barrister Kerim Fuad said several doctors were concerned that Reilly's extremist views, which had appeared to have dissipated, could be triggered...

It will start getting better and better," the Daily Mail quoted him, as saying. The ex-Royal Navy chief, 60, also warned that security...
