 British Govt Gave 35,000-pound Grant to Website Promoting Suicide Attacks
The British Government has apparently sanctioned a 35,000-pound grant to an Islamic website 'muslimyouth.net' which is backing suicide bombers. This is especially shocking given that the third anniversary of the 7/7 attacks is imminent.

The website carries dozens of hate messages by fanatics on its 'support group" site. One of the members wrote of suicide missions: "If you can blow dozens of people up at the same time, great, absolutely great."

And, in another similar message a member praised a beheading video of British hostage Ken Bigley, saying: "I like the beheading videos of the prisoners of war especially the Daniel Pearl and Ken Bigley one," reported The Sun.

Rizwan Hussain of muslimyouth.net, said: "We're conscious of a few people venting anger on our site. If there was a direct threat made we would alert authorities."

But, the Department for Communities and Local Government agreed to fund the group's film on problems faced by UK Muslims. A government spokesman said: "We can't prevent violent extremism, if we aren't prepared to talk about the issues."

British government officials, including cabinet minister Hazel Blears, will see the film in London tomorrow.
