British Government Working To Rein In Jihad Hate Speech
May 28. 2013
After the unprovoked grisly murder of British soldier Lee Rigby, it has been announced the British government is working to rein in Jihad hate speech. For YEARS the Judiciary Report warned said Jihad hate speech is dangerous and poses a threat to society: Islamic Hatemongers To Terrorize Britons Via March and U.K. Home Secretary Jacqui Smith Causes Controversy and London Development Agency Tears Down Largest Christian Church For Massive Mosque Being Built By Terrorist Backed Group Tablighi Jamaat.
The fact of the matter is threatening Jihad is not free speech - it's a death threat. For anyone to stand up in a public area issuing death threats is an assault on innocent people's ears and social well being. However, one of the two suspects, Michael Adebolajo, among others, have repeatedly done this in Britain for years, to the distress and discomfort of others. People don't want to hear that when they go out. It's hardly a soothing saxophone or a tuneful trumpet by a street musician. It's certainly not Shakespeare in the park.

Adebolajo, who was raised a Christian, converted to Islam nine-years ago and became violent with terrorist leanings. In 2006, Adebolajo, vociferously complained outside police stations that he should be able to "behead" those he believes have disrespected Islam. In 2007 he openly "preached" about beheading British soldiers. There is no Western nation where a citizen or resident can legally behead another. Yet, Adebolajo, among others, openly advocated and promoted this on Britain's streets.
Free speech is the right to peacefully dissent and disagree with others' points of view. However, it is not a right to threaten then practice murder. The law in the West has always been clear on this matter to those who study and observe it, but political correctness is killing innocent people.

Semantics and political correctness may preserve feelings in
attempts at creating a homogeneous society, but it can costs lives. How
homogeneous is it when some are screaming for the beheading of others
and trying to carry it out, all over a difference in opinion.
The Judiciary Report is for free speech, but not threats of violence
and murder, wrongly camouflaged as the right to speak one's mind.
Woolwich attack: New bid to muzzle the preachers of hate
11:09PM BST 25 May 2013 - A high-level task force is to be set up in a fresh attempt to muzzle Islamist clerics who radicalise young men through extremist preaching. Woolwich attack: Britain will never give in to terrorism, says David Cameron. The Prime Minister is determined to challenge the poisonous narrative of extremist clerics.
David Cameron has ordered the setting up of the new body in the wake of last week's killing of Drummer Lee Rigby in the street in Woolwich, South London. Made up of senior ministers, police officers, security officials and moderate leaders, the new committee will study a range of options, according to reports.
These include banning extremist clerics from being given public platforms to incite students, prisoners and other followers – and forcing mosque leaders to answer for so-called "preachers of hate." It was being made clear in Whitehall that the launch of TERFOR (the Tackling Extremism and Radicalisation Task Force) should be seen as an overhaul of the government's counter-terrorism strategy in the wake of Drummer Rigby's murder.
A senior Whitehall source said: "The Prime Minister is determined to challenge the poisonous narrative of extremist clerics and confront religious leaders who promote violence. We are looking at the range of powers and current methods of dealing with extremism at its root, as opposed to just tackling criminal violent extremism.
"We will look at ways of disrupting individuals who may be influential in fostering extremism. We cannot allow a situation to continue where extremist clerics go around this country inciting young people to commit terrorist acts. ‘We will do everything we can to stop it."
Sources said, however, that there must be no question of restricting freedom of speech. Any moves to do so would quickly bring Mr Cameron and other Conservative ministers into conflict with their coalition partners, the Liberal Democrats.
