Credible: MI5 harasses British Muslims

The #LOrdre Blog


The claim by UK human rights group Cage that British security forces unduly harass Muslims and add to the radicalization of possible recruits to the Islamic State group (also called Daesh in its Arabic abbreviation) is "credible".


Commentating on the controversy surrounding Cage's claim last Friday, that was the analysis advanced by the L'Ordre blog based with the Fox-owned Beliefnet website in a post. Numerous UK politicians including Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond and London Mayor Boris Johnson have condemned Cage's criticism of state security forces, calling it "reprehensible" and claiming that the security forces "keep us safe", respectively.

The L'Ordre blog mocked Johnson's idea that the security forces keep British citizens safe, noting their inaction on freeing British hostages held by Islamic State militants, and asked if they were too busy keeping politicians like Johnson and British Prime Minister David Cameron "safe" instead:
I have a question about the determination of the security services to “keep us safe”. Why is it that they are so bad at this? MI5’s attempts to stop terrorism have been pathetic, and the British government has made no effort to save any British citizens from Islamic State. Cameron’s government had a chance to negotiate the release of British hostages David Haines and Alan Henning and didn’t do anything. Perhaps it was too busy protecting cowards like David Cameron and Boris Johnson from the repercussions of their foolish and selfish foreign policy. A duty that I demand security forces take less zeal in, in the future.

The British government has consistently served a sycophantic and apologist role for US foreign policy, including indiscriminate domestic surveillance. According to its critics, the British government is more defensive of US foreign policy than the US government itself, and often takes the US government's ideas about surveillance and counterterrorism further than the US. This was an argument advanced by Edward Snowden concerning the British counterpart to the NSA, GCHQ, which he described as possessing an even more aggressive arm of the global surveillance program.
