We're all potential terrorists now - pt 428
Anyone lucky enough to have caught Newsnight last night will have enjoyed its opening article about a Jihadist website which has reportedly declared the inauguration of Al Qaeda UK
Proof once again that the rigorously objective journalists at the BBC understand that the only material on the Internet worth relying on is the Jihadist stuff you find hosted on Langley/ Cheltenham/ Australian based/ controlled servers

US fears Europe-based terrorism
One of the biggest threats to US security may now come from within Europe, US Homeland Security head Michael Chertoff has told the BBC.
FBI wants instant access to British identity data
Americans seek international database to carry iris, palm and finger prints
not to mention the handy coincidence of timing with...
...which starts in London tomorrow. The cast list makes fascinating reading
Over the last couple of years many of my non Conspiraloon chums who have had the decency to hear some of my ideas out have raised several reasonable objections to the particular world view I espouse. One of those objections is that they couldn't see how fear and paranoia that has been generated with regards to British Muslims could be expanded to encompass non Muslims.
I'm starting to think that 2008 might be the year in which they're going to find out
