7 July bomber on Radio

with one comment

Radio 4’s File on 4 had an interesting piece on Mohammed Sidique Khan:

Viewers and listeners to Tuesday night’s programmes will also hear criticism from experts and academics about how radical clerics have “recruited openly” in Britain.

Academic researcher Dr Gunaratna said: “The radical clerics have radicalised young British and European Muslims and have done al-Qaeda’s work for them.”

And Sir Paul Lever, the former head of the Joint Intelligence Committee, which advises the prime minister on intelligence threats, said there had been a “failure to understand the significance of allowing these clerics to recruit openly”.”
