Muslim extremists' 'campaign of lies' to undermine the government's fight against terror
An organised campaign to undermine Britain's fight against terrorism can be revealed today.
Islamist activists linked to Cage, a group known to sympathise with terrorists, are using coordinated leaks to mainstream news organisations, including the BBC, to spread fear and confusion in Muslim communities about the Government's anti-terror policy, Prevent.
Investigations by the Telegraph reveal that several widely reported recent stories about Prevent are false or exaggerated – and many of the supposedly "ordinary Muslim" victims are in fact activists in the campaign, known as Prevent Watch. The stories include a claim which became a cause célèbre for Prevent's opponents – that a Muslim schoolboy from London was "interrogated like a criminal" for using the phrase "ecoterrorism" in class.
