Anyone surprised? Muslim leaders do everything in their considerable power to kill counter terror programs. Will they assist in bringing the jihadis to justice? Well, that’s a whole other thing.
Only one in three British Muslims would tip off the police if they believed that somebody close to them had become involved with terrorist sympathisers, a poll has revealed.
More than 100,000 British Muslims sympathise with suicide bombers and people who commit other terrorist acts, the survey suggests.
The findings are further evidence that the government’s key anti-radicalisation programme, Prevent, is failing to provide intelligence to the police from Muslim groups. The Times revealed in December that fewer than a tenth of extremism tip-offs were coming directly from the Muslim community or faith leaders.
The survey, conducted for Channel 4.
