“Police have no right to rush into action on dubious intelligence, say most Muslims in poll”, a headline reads in today’s Guardian. Sounds reasonable to me. Not to Robert Spencer, though. He comments: “So it’s better to be blown up than risk inconveniencing innocent Muslims. I see.” We suspect that if Spencer himself were shot by police while walking down the stairs of his own home in his pyjamas, he might view this as rather more than a mere inconvenience.
