LONDON - Britain on Monday banned two Islamist groups operating in the country, invoking for the first time a new law against glorifying terrorism. Home Secretary John Reid issued an order in Parliament to make it a criminal offense for a person to belong to or encourage support for al-Ghurabaa and the Saved Sect. Both groups are believed to be splinters of al-Muhajiroon, formed in 1996 by Omar Bakri Mohammad to promote a global Islamic state. The group was officially disbanded in 2004, and Bakri Mohammad has been banned from returning to Britain.... ......The orders make it illegal to arrange meetings in their support, or wear clothing or carry any article in public indicating support or membership. Al-Ghurabaa spokesman Anjem Choudary reacted with outrage, arguing that the government had failed to engage in a viable dialogue with Muslims. (Translation: Failed to submit to Allah & his headchopping minions....ed) ....The order also banned the Baluchistan Liberation Army and Teyrebaz Azadiye Kurdistan. A second draft order adds two alternative names for the Kurdish PKK, which is already proscribed as a terrorist organization. Those names are Kongra Gele Kurdistan, and KADEK. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060717/ap_on_re_eu/britain_terror_bans_1 Let's hope ole' Dubya's watching & learning.
