Anti Terror News

This week there's been countless news stories in the run up to the 1st anniversary of the July 7th London bombings.

'We Must Defeat Ideas Of Extremists'
Al-Qaida Plan to Infiltrate MI5 Revealed
Judge 'Misunderstood Anti-Terror Legislation'
Police Anti-Terror Efforts At All-Time High
Reid Contests Control Orders Ruling
MPs Demand Anti-Terror Safeguards
Muslims 'Sidelined' In Anti-Terror Policy

However, the most dignified newspaper quote of the week was given by Zeeshan Hashmi, the brother of Lance Corporal Jabron Hashmi, the first British Muslim soldier killed whilst fighting the "war on terror" in Afghanistan.

"These Muslim brothers who are willing to carry out suicide bombings and sell drugs to fellow Muslims, they still think they have the ability to criticise people who want to do things differently," he said. "With the anniversary of the July 7 bombings approaching, it is important to try and break down the barriers in society. You can be proud to be Muslim and British - the two don't have to be separate."
