Do you think the prevailing relativist multiculturalism helped or hindered this effort? “Revealed: Islamist extremists have penetrated the heart of Britain,” from the Evening Standard (thanks to all who sent this in):
Islamist extremists have infiltrated Government and key public utilities to pass sensitive information to terrorists, the security services have warned.
Counter-terrorism officials say “insiders” or their associates are almost certainly working “undetected” in sensitive posts and are actively supporting the activities of extremists.
