The latest installment of the ongoing Bakri drama brings us a welcome bit of anti-dhimmitude in the UK. From Reuters, with thanks to Sr. Soph:
LONDON (Reuters) – Britain barred hardline Muslim cleric Omar Bakri Mohammed on Friday from returning to the country, part of a government crackdown on Islamic preachers it fears inspire bombers such as those who attacked London in July.
Syrian-born Bakri, 45, left Britain for Lebanon on Saturday, saying he was going on holiday, after British Prime Minister Tony Blair pledged to silence Islamists who glorify violence.
Lebanese security forces detained him on Thursday for questioning and he is still being held.
Not according to this.
“We don’t feel he’s conducive to the public good,” said a Home Office spokeswoman. His family were free to remain in the United Kingdom, she added.
