Jihad Watch on Dr Bari

Newly elected general secretary of the Muslim Council of Britain, Mohammed Abdul Bari, has given an interview to the Daily Telegraph in which he puts over a characteristically restrained and moderate message. But this is just not good enough for our friend Robert Spencer at Jihad Watch. He takes it as evidence that Dr Bari “holds to the same goal as that of the Al-Ghurabaa types, but is just slicker about it”. As for Dr Bari’s suggestion that relations between the police and Muslim communities in London would be improved by the recruitment of 3,000 more Muslim policemen, Spencer comments sarcastically: “Foxes Guarding the Henhouse Alert.”
