Websites biggest terror threat, says UK watchdog

David Cameron should abandon his threat to ban the Islamist group Hizb ut-Tahrir and turn his attention instead to websites that openly advocate violence, Lord Carlile, the terrorism watchdog, urged yesterday.Lord Carlile, a Liberal Democrat peer who has been the official reviewer of anti-terrorism laws since 2001, suggested that outlawing an organisation just because their views are offensive was not going to help the struggle against international terrorism. David Cameron raised the case of Hizb ut-Tahrir in his first exchange at Prime Minister’s Question with Gordon Brown in July 2007, when he said: “Almost two years ago, the Government said that they would ban the extremist group, Hizb ut-Tahrir. We think it should be banned – why has it not happened?”
