UK: Terror police to monitor nurseries for Islamic radicalisation
Friday, 11 December 2009 19:17    .The Times

Alex Ralph and Sean O'Neill

Nursery-age children should be monitored for signs of brainwashing by Islamist extremists, according to a leaked police memo obtained by The Times.

In an e-mail to community groups, an officer in the West Midlands counter-terrorism unit wrote: "I do hope that you will tell me about persons, of whatever age, you think may have been radicalised or be vulnerable to radicalisation ... Evidence suggests that radicalisation can take place from the age of 4."


The police unit confirmed that counter-terrorist officers specially trained in identifying children and young people vulnerable to radicalisation had visited nursery schools.

(Qallam? Why am I not surprised that that those to deviants had something to do with this?)

The policy was condemned last night. Chris Grayling, the Shadow Home Secretary, said that it ran the risk of "alienating even more people". Chris Huhne, the Liberal Democrat home affairs spokesman, said that it was an "absurd waste of police time".

Sir Norman Bettison, who speaks for the Association of Chief Police Officers on Prevent, the Government's anti-terror strategy, said that the officer's e-mail was a "clumsy" attempt to explain it.

Sir Norman, the Chief Constable of West Yorkshire, said: "There is absolutely no example, nationally, of the police engaging with nursery-age kids specifically on this issue. That is the age for learning about ‘Stranger Danger' and ‘The Tufty Club'."

The Home Office has disclosed, meanwhile, that a seven-year-old has become the youngest child to feature in a scheme to tackle grooming by extremists. David Hanson, the Police Minister, disclosed in a parliamentary answer that the child was one of 228 people referred to the Channel Project, part of Prevent focused on individuals.

More than 90 per cent of those identified by the project have been aged between 15 and 24 and most, but not all, are Muslim.

Criticism of the anti-extremism strategy is growing. The programme, funded from the £3.5 billion per year security budget, is said to stigmatise communities and encourage Muslims to spy on one another.

This week John Denham, the Communities Secretary, said that the programme had to be more transparent to dispel "the fear that by joining a Prevent activity, the organisers or the participants are opening themselves up to covert surveillance, intelligence-gathering and the collection of files on the Muslim communities".

The e-mail obtained by The Times was written by a sergeant in response to Muslim community concerns. He was trying to allay fears but seems to have inflamed them.

He wrote: "I am a police officer and therefore it will always be part of my role to gather intelligence and I will report back any information or intelligence which may suggest someone is a terrorist, or is planning to be one or to support others. However, my role is to raise the level of awareness of the threat of terrorism and radicalisation and support and work with partners to try to prevent it."

Arun Kundnani, of the Institute of Race Relations, contacted the officer and said he was told that officers had visited nursery schools. Mr Kundnani added: "He did seem to think it was standard. He said it wasn't just him or his unit that was doing it. He said the indicators were they [children] might draw pictures of bombs and say things like ‘all Christians are bad' or that they believe in an Islamic state. It seems that nursery teachers in the West Midlands area are being asked to look out for radicalisation. He also said that targeting young children was important because they would be left aware of what was inappropriate to say at school. He felt that it was necessary to cover nurseries as well as primary and secondary schools. He said it was a precaution and that he wasn't expecting to come back with a list."

There have been acute worries about radicalisation in the Birmingham area since a terrorist was caught on a surveillance tape indoctrinating his five-year-old son.

Parviz Khan, who was jailed for plotting to kidnap and behead a British soldier, was heard threatening the boy with a beating if he did not answer questions correctly. "Who do you love?" Kahn asked. "I love Sheikh Osama bin Laden," the boy answered.

The West Midlands counter-terrorism unit confirmed that its officer had visited a nursery school attached to a primary school and had spoken to staff. The unit said that it had 21 uniformed counter-terrorism officer who engaged openly and directly with communities, schools and other public bodies.

A spokesman said: "We have been trying to bring counter-terrorism work out of the shadows. It can cause consternation at first when a policeman introduces himself as a counter-terrorism officer. But we are actually trying to get over the accusation that Prevent is about spying by being more open and we are reaping the benefits now with better engagement."

Sir Norman emphasised that Prevent was about working with communities to protect vulnerable young people. "It is no different to addressing the harm of drugs or sexual exploitation," he said. "Prevent is a way of addressing those most vulnerable in an attempt to protect them.

"It is easy to give Prevent initiatives a kicking because it is viewed as intrusive but, the next time there is a terrorist outrage involving young people who have been radicalised, there will be a wringing of hands and people will say, ‘What more could we have done?' "

Quilliam, an anti-extremism think-tank, told a Commons select committee inquiry: "The notion that Prevent is about surveillance and monitoring of Muslim communities is deeply ingrained in some communities and will be difficult to shift."

The Terrorist Trilogy of Three-year-olds Thpeech:

Three-year-olds. They speak a language that is all their own, a pidgin communicative code, characterized by a few vital earbites. Noam Chomsky says that language is a specific skill. He was on to something, even stating  its acquisition is governed by an INBORN PROGRAM and requiring no direct intervention from parents or teachers.

These "children" are born this way, dear readers. There are no people behind this phenomenon. No parents or teachers. What about the media?

Adam's World DVD's are currently being processed in the lab - for possible evidence of terrorism tactics. It would be a breakthrough to prove that Islamic media infiltrates the developing brain of a child in-utero. The sounds captured make sense to the fetus - they listen and obey - and we should be afraid. Very, very afraid.

These activities MUST be monitored. Something has to be done. But there's more:

The following is a breakdown of that formerly known as stages in first language acquisition. How innocent these processes appeared for so long. Three-year-olds are evil mongers and could attack at any time. Night attacks are known to occur. Stay vigilant. Check for these communication patterns:

1) Reduced syntax and vocabulary - less is more and the silent ones are the most dangerous. They know stuff.
2) No fixed order of words, with considerable variation from one speaker to another - a terror code.
3) Used purely as a language of communication - instead of learning each other's mother tongues, they invent their own. Watch your back.

Don't be fooled by their cuteness. Be strong.

The police continue to gather their "intelligence". Stay tuned.


The unity of all, perceptible to even bystanders, is the Oneness that inspired it, a sea without shores, subject me to this sea.

UK terror witch-hunt extended to nursery schools

By Hamed Chapman

West Midlands Police are encouraging nursery
school teachers and workers to monitor
children in their care as potential
terrorists. “If anyone working with children
has a concern, we would expect them to
contact us as a safeguarding measure,” said
Assistant Chief Constable Anil Patani in a
copy of a letter obtained by The Muslim News.

Patani was responding to the leaking of an
email revealing that a sergeant in the West
Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit visited a
nursery. The e-mail from the sergeant was
sent to community groups and schools asking
them to keep an eye on young children. “I do
hope that you will tell me about persons, of
whatever age, you think may have been
radicalised or be vulnerable to
radicalisation,” the e-mail said. “Evidence
suggests that radicalisation can take place
from the age of four,” it added without
giving further details.

The Sergeant was writing in an attempt to
allay fears about the Government’s
controversial Prevent Violent Extremism, also
known as Prevent, following reports that it
was being used to spy on the country’s Muslim
community. He made clear to community groups
that as a police officer, “it will always be
part of my role to gather intelligence and I
will report back any information or
intelligence which may suggest someone is a
terrorist, or is planning to be one or to
support others.”

In a report on the Prevent programme in
October, the Institute of Race Relations
(IRR) pointed out that teachers and youth
workers were now expected to be the eyes and
ears of the counter-terrorist system. “We
noted that the ‘indicators’ being used to
identify young people as vulnerable to
radicalisation were vague enough to lead to
the misidentification of large numbers of
young Muslims as violent extremists,” said
author of the Spooked report, Arun Kundnani.
“We argued that such a programme was likely
to be counter-productive as it undermines
trust in mainstream institutions such as
schools and youth clubs. The recent
revelations that children as young as four
have been targeted by counter-terrorism unit
police officers confirms these fears,”
Kundnani told The Muslim News.

The Assistant Chief Constable confirmed that
the sergeant visited the nursery. “There have
been well documented cases of young children
being exposed to violent extremist influences
but, whilst we are mindful of the potential
for this to happen, we are not proactively
visiting nursery schools to warn of such
dangers,” he insisted. “No children were
spoken to during the visit and this certainly
does not constitute a policy of monitoring.”

Patani explained that the Sergeant was a
uniformed Security and Partnerships Officer
appointed as part of a “new and innovative
approach to counter terrorism policing,”
instigated a year ago. The team operates from
local stations and adopts a neighbourhood-
style approach to make themselves known to as
many local organisations as possible –
including schools. “We took the decision that
in order to be open, accessible and
accountable, and gain the trust and
confidence of the people we serve, these
officers would declare from the outset that
they are members of the CTU,” he said.

Last year, Schools Secretary Ed Balls issued
new guidelines to teachers as part of the
Government’s “de-radicalisation” strategy.
Balls denied that the strategy was about
teachers spying on children but was a toolkit
to provide more practical advice on how to
support vulnerable pupils, working alongside
other local partners and community
organisations.

It has also been revealed that the Home
Office funds the so-called Channel Project,
where police officers work alongside Muslim
communities to identify impressionable
children, treating some as young as 13 as
potential terrorists.

The Sergeant confirmed that during his
meeting, he spoke about the Channel Project,
which seeks to “provide support to those who
have been radicalised or are vulnerable to
radicalisation.” Part of this, he said in
crude terms, can “involve sessions with
learned scholars of Islam who can refute the
messages the radicalisers are giving out to
people and show them the context of lines
they may have been given from the Qur’an.”

Patani clarified that the officers explain to
primary teachers the role schools can play in
a “variety of crime-related issues, including
preventing violent extremism.” But he
insisted that they will “not have actively
delivered any kind of presentation to
children of this age or below.”

In a report to the West Midlands Police
Authority in October, Chief Constable Chris
Simmons said that “over 1,200 local community
contacts” had been made since last December,
helping to develop the force’s understanding
of local challenges and grievances within
them. Six multi-agency ‘Channel’ panels,
designed to tackle vulnerability, have been
established across the Force areas in
Birmingham, Coventry, Dudley, Sandwell,
Walsall and Wolverhampton, he added.

“These schemes will harness the collective
capability and expertise across the public
sector to address any reported vulnerability
to violent extremism,” he said.

The Chief Constable’s report details the
extent of Prevent objectives across the
public sector, “providing advice and support
to education, health, social services, youth
offending services, probation services.”
Prevent action plans, he said, are “enhanced
now through better information sharing in the
form of Counter Terrorism Local Profiles.”

These documents describing the history and
current status of CT related vulnerability in
each Local Authority area were “restricted,”
according to his report without specifying to
whom.
