Much more is needed, and this law needs refining, but it is a step in the right direction. It will make it easier for British officials to take action against jihad preaching in mosques. From the BBC, with thanks to JE:
New laws making it illegal to glorify terrorism and distribute terrorist publications have come into force.
The Terrorism Act 2006 allows groups or organisations to be banned for those offences and covers anyone who gives or receives training.
The act designates nuclear sites as areas where trespass can become a terrorist offence.
Human rights campaigners argue the law is drawn far too widely and it faced stiff opposition in the House of Lords….
The act also creates new offences of undertaking terrorism training, preparation or planning of a terrorist act and disseminating terrorist publications.
