Some straight talk to Muslims

London Metropolitan Police Commissioner Ian Blair talks straight to the British Muslim community.
We have a moment now in which we can engage with the Muslim community and move them from what could be described as a bit of denial into active engagement around counter-terrorism.

Who are the preachers of hate? Who are the people who are looking to groom bombers?

The Muslim community somewhere will know who these people are. We've now got to engage with them so that they give us the information.
Blair added that a number of British Muslims had been to Iraq and training camps abroad.

The Muslim community has expressed "shock" that four British-born Muslims were the perpetrators of last week's attacks on London which left at least 54 dead. Funny thing, Muslims halfway around the world from Britain weren't at all surprised.
