UK - PM shelves radical Islamic group ban

Britain surrenders.

The Prime Minister has been forced to shelve a central plank of his 'war on terror' strategy after opposition from senior police officers and the Home Office.

Plans to ban Hizb ut-Tahrir, the radical Islamic group, have been dropped in the past few days following intense discussions between Number 10 and legal advisers. Counter-terrorism sources said Tony Blair had been warned that banning the group, which campaigns for Britain to become a caliphate - a country subject to Islamic law - would serve only as a recruiting agent if the group appealed against the move.

HT is banned in many countries.

Blair, like a lot of politicians, wants to have it both ways. This decision comes on the heels of Blair's remarks against the veil. But, here he sings the praises of Islam.

Typical politician.
