Now why would there be limited cooperation from Muslim communities? Hmmm. What happened to that Vast Majority of Peaceful, Law-Abiding British Muslims we heard so much about from Bonnie Prince Charlie and Tony Cool Britannia Blair after the July 7 bombings? Assistant Commissioner Andy Hayman of Scotland Yard speaks in “New groups planning London attacks, warns anti-terror chief: Police speak of frustration at limited cooperation from Muslim communities,” from The Guardian, :
“I don’t want to scaremonger but it has to be said, when you look around the world and at the prominence of London, that the threat is real,” said Mr Hayman. He said detectives were actively pursuing “other lines of investigation”….
He added: “London is an iconic site as a location for another terrorist attack. We have to be vigilant but you can’t predict where or how or when they will try.”
Mr Hayman also admitted that getting the Muslim community to trust the police was proving a long and difficult process.
“There has been progress but starting from a regrettably low baseline. We have close links with the Muslim community but the next step is getting them to share information. I fully understand how difficult that is, the repercussions of arrests and so on, but that has to be weighed against the mass loss of life that could result from further atrocities.”
