British Muslims: UK policy to blame for extremism

August 12, 2006 06:32

Britain's foreign policy has made it a target for extremists, a coalition of prominent Islamic groups said in an open letter published Saturday. The letter, carried by several major British papers, said that the British intervention in Iraq and the failure to secure an immediate cease-fire in Lebanon was providing "ammunition to extremists who threaten us all." Among the signatories were three of four Muslim members of parliament, as well as 38 Muslim groups.
