Bailing Islamists

Last year we reported that members of Al Muhajiroun who had been arrested for inciting hatred at the Danish cartoon protests had been released on bail. At the time we pointed out that an Al Muhajiroun leader, Anjem Choudary, had similarly been treated too leniently over that protest.

The Sun reports today that after having been arrested for his role in that protest he was released on bail, and while on bail he advised fellow Islamists how they could avoid being arrested for their parts in the incitement.

This once again underlines the dangers of Islamist leaders who do not carry out attacks themselves but radicalise others to do so. And allowing them out on bail on the premise that they pose no harm fails to take into account this radicalisation.
