From Britain targets extremist websites | Australian IT
Correspondents in London | January 18, 2008
THE British government announced a drive to shut down websites inspired by al-Qaida, comparing the move with efforts to target paedophiles online.
In her first keynote speech on terrorism, Home Secretary Jacqui Smith said fighting it was about more than disrupting planned attacks, adding that Britain "can't after all simply arrest our way out of this problem".
"If we are ready and willing to take action to stop the grooming of vulnerable young people on social networking sites, then I believe we should also take action against those who groom vulnerable people for the purposes of violent extremism," she told an audience in London.
"Where there is illegal material on the net, I want it removed."
That last sentence is music to me ears....now if they will follow through like the Russian hackers did..they do a pretty sweet job. We certainly have our share of alqaeda & taliban extremist websites in the US especially one that uses their children posed with firearms.....it sucks to see children abused that way. The brain on islam is a terrible waste. It dies a long slow sad and lonely death..
