Extremists and Radicals but not Terrorists
Go to the UK Google site and type "Islamic extremist" into the search line and this is what the top entry will look like.



Click on the link and you'll be taken to the Metropolitan Police's main Anti-Terrorism webpage.

The same thing happens if you type "Islamist extremist" or "Muslim radical" ... or variations on any of the above.

Twelve weeks after buying these words the Met said it had recorded 139,000 click-thrus, though it won't say how many decent leads it's generated.

The Met's choice of words to buy is interesting, to say the least. 

If you type "terrorist" instead of "extremist" or "radical" ... you'll most likely be heading for Wikipedia.

It's funny how since terrorism has turned into a business, competition rules just apply.
Its all about separation of church and state over sea and here. As long as the US is viewed as a christian state we are done in the middle east. I have no illusions that any thing well change. I do hope Armageddon turns out to be Gods ambush for all those that believe they have to fight for God.
I say Kudo's to the Met! We need to make it easier in a country that is becoming overrun with radical muslims, to find them before they blow up another bus, or worse!
