Here I go again, reporting on what jihadists are saying and doing. Don’t I know that calling attention to such activity makes moderate Muslims angry?
I anxiously await Sir Iqbal Sacranie’s response to this, and his unveiling of a comprehensive program to convert jihadists to Islamic moderation. I am confident that we will be getting this any day now — right, Iqbal? Iqbal? Anyone?

Children as young as 11 are being targeted by radical Muslims who appear to have infiltrated a mainstream Muslim website, The Independent on Sunday can reveal. Literature aimed at children between 11 and 18 on the youth section of the Islamic Society of Britain (ISB) website calls on them to “boycott those who openly wage war against Allah”.
The article containing that quote, entitled “Imam Hassan al-Banna on jihad”, goes on to say: “Jihad is a powerful invigorating yearning for Islam’s might and glory … which makes you cry when looking at the weakness of Muslims today and the humiliating tragedies crushing him to death everywhere. ”
Jihad is to be a soldier for Allah. When the bugle calls … you should be the first to answer the call to join the ranks for jihad.”
Other articles on atheism and secularism appear to be against integration. One article is entitled “Zionism, a black historical record”, and another, “Israel simply has no right to exist”. The ISB immediately disowned this content after being informed of it by the IoS, and promised to remove it.
