UK police warn of prosecutions over Islamist posts

British police have issued a warning to those who search for and post radical Islamist publications on the internet. They face prosecution for calls to attack public places in the Western world by an online Al-Qaeda affiliated magazine.

"The public is reminded that viewing downloading or disseminating extremist material within the UK may constitute an offence under Section 1 and 2 of the Terrorism Act 2006,” a spokesman for the UK Metropolitan police told Press Association.

Also, a formal advisory was issued for the security forces who continue to monitor the outlet Inspire, with the spring issue 2014 calling for jihadists to target crowded, heavily-populated locations in the Western world.

"The MPS counter terrorism command is aware of the websites and appropriate steps have been put in place, including providing security advice where relevant," the Met police stated.

Police officers are constantly reminded about watching over public places.

"As part of our continued work, we regularly work with, and support, industry, the organizers of sporting events and companies overseeing crowded places with a variety of briefings and advice," the Met Police stressed.

It comes just a few weeks after Western officials voiced their concern over the soaring number of people recruited by militants to fight against the Syrian government.

Inspire is an English-language online magazine that has the emblem of Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), which is based in Yemen, Sky News said.

The magazine began publishing in 2010, with the first issue including the article ‘Make a bomb in the kitchen of your Mom’, which taught jihadists how to make bombs.

The article is notorious, as Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzokhar Tsarnaev reportedly admitted to investigators that he and his brother Tamerlan had learned how to build the bombs used in the marathon attack in April last year by reading the magazine, according to Sky News.

Everyone is created the same huh? At what point does this fable get kicked out of the books. Everyone is different. Forcing all of the countrys to take in 1000's of these violent people was for what end? To give them a better life while destroying our way of life. Smart leaders we have, so very smart.

while i dont like the rants and hate speech, this seems to me a freedom of expression thing. but then this is the UK so i dont know if freedom of speech is the rule or not.

Are they really arrested or are they equipped with masks and sent to Erdo's Turkish training grounds to learn how to kill unarmed people in the next place the world's satanic masters choose?
