‘We must stand up to Islamo-fascism’, says Harold Evans

“History tells us it takes a long time to rouse the British, though once roused they see things through. Maybe the latest terrorist outrage [shouldn’t that read “alleged terrorist outrage”? Or are arrested Muslims deemed automatically guilty? – ed.] will give second thoughts to all those well-meaning battalions of left and right and leaders of the Muslim community who have yet to see an anti-terrorism measure they approve. No to 90 days to question suspects; no to identity cards; no to selective telephone monitoring; and yes, in the name of free speech, to the radical mullahs brainwashing deluded youth.”
