A Pacifist's Rude Awakening


I ripped this post off, title and all, from Little Green Footballs:


Anti-war activist Martin Gilbertson thought he’d found people of like minds, when he started working in the Muslim community of Beeston. He produced anti-western propaganda videos, and helped to secure websites and encrypted emails for Muslims at the Iqra Bookshop—and for 7/7 bombers Mohammad Sidique Khan and Shehzad Tanweer.

His multicultural anti-war fantasy had become a jihad nightmare, and he tried to alert the police—but he never heard back from them until after the London bombings.
