Obama admin sought to 'empower' British Muslims
The Obama administration directed embassy employees in the U.K. to conduct outreach to help "empower" the British Muslim community, according to a classified U.S. diplomatic cable released by Wikileaks and reviewed by WND.
A separate cable summarized statistics showing a rise in the British Muslim population and increased radicalization there. The cable referenced a poll that showed 32 percent of Muslims on U.K. campuses believe killing in the name of religion is justified, while 40 percent want Muslims in the U.K. to be under Islamic law, or Shariah.
A cable dated Feb. 5 directed as a "top priority" for the U.S. embassy in Britain to conduct outreach to the Muslim community there.
